Faster Louder is reporting that Big Day Out, one of Australiaís biggest music festivals, will take 2015 off. In a separate piece, the publication noted that former Big Day Out promoter AJ Maddah talked last tweek on Twitter about how there was "a shortage of headliners on cycle this year" and "there was fuck all out there."
As reported yesterday, the Soundwave promoter sold his 50 percent stake of the festival back to the Austin-based C3 Presents, who bought into the Big Day Out in 2012. C3 have since confirmed that while the Big Day Out wonít happen in 2015, they plan to resurrect the event in the future. Maddah has welcomed C3 Presentsí full ownership of the Big Day Out, telling a fan...

Corey Ayd has left Banner Pilot.
We have some crummy news to share Ė Corey has decided to leave Banner Pilot, and played his final show with us last weekend. It's been awesome to have him as part of the band for the last few years, and we're bummed to see him go. Luckily, it's just because he has other cool stuff going on in his life right now, and not for a bad reason like him being adamant about moving the band in a ska direction. Luckily for all of you, you can still check him out in his other band, The Manix, and we recommend you do so. So, what does this mean for the other three sad sacks in Banner Pilot? Well, it means we need a new guitar player! If you're interested, shoot an...

Rise Against talk to AltPress and are aware they're not going to please everyone with their music.
Thereís no pleasing all of those people. All you can do is turn to yourself and make the songs that you want, and know they may not be for everybody. There is no song for everybody. Itís what makes us feel good at the end of the day. The only pressure we feel is the pressure we put on ourselves. So we take risks and weíre far past the point of wondering what people will think of them. We just make choices with our guts, which is something weíve done for awhile.

Kwame Opam, writing for the Polygon, looks at the all digital pop-superstar Hatsune Miku. Hit the replies for the video.
Last month, as an experiment, the video team and I took a shot at explaining who and what Miku is in the context of American pop stardom. To Miku fans, this will probably seem familiar, but hopefully for those readers who are as puzzled as I initially was, this will introduce a bizarre, wonderful, creatively empowering character.

Pittsburgh-based act The Homeless Gospel Choir will be releasing a new album, I Used To Be So Young, on July 15th via A-F Records. Today, we are premiering the band's new video for "Armageddon," which you can view in the replies. The unique singer-songwriter/folk-punk act is about coming face-to-face with adulthood and has no desire to participate, and cleverly tackles topics of social and political matters with utmost honesty. If you dig it, make sure to pre-order the LP.

Show ReviewsDiarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and The Midgetmen - Austin, Texas (Caitlin DeWeese)
Caitlin DeWeese on 06/28/14 - 03:10 PM
Austin, Texas has been on overload with killer shows this week, but Diarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and local heroes The Midgetmen played a killer set to a packed house at Red 7 on June 27th. The venue was feeling hellishly hot, and most of the audience was soaked in sweat most likely not theirs, but no one seemed to give a crap. Hit the replies to read my full review of the show, as well as a photo gallery.
Itís hard not to wail when your band features four guitarists, a lone bassist, and a bad-ass drummer. Diarrhea Planetís music falls somewhere between the wildness of older The Black Lips and classic Nashville Southern rock.

Hidden Hospitals are looking to fund their first full-length on Kickstarter.
Our next goal is to produce our first full length record. We've spent the past year holed up in Chicago, writing, crafting and whittling down a collection of songs that we feel is the first full realization of why we started this band. As you might assume, our biggest endeavor to date also comes with the biggest financial constraint. We refuse to sacrifice this dream because of budget, so we are turning to you - our supporters - to help us get to the finish line. Importantly, we aren't looking for donations, we want to give you exclusive access and rewards so you can own a piece of this process and be a...
