After a Change.org petition showed up over the weekend asking Warped Tour to remove Austin Jones from the tour, Kevin Lyman said he would take all YouTubers off the tour, but has now clarifed that he needs to go through "due process" first. I guess that means vetting the facts.
From the Petition PageAs most of you know, Front Porch Step was removed from Warped Tour for asking for nudes from underage girls. Well, now we have another celebrity who girls from ages 12-18+ idolize. Austin Jones is now taking advantage of his fame. On numerous accounts, he has pressured girls as young as 13 into sending him videos of them twerking. As a 15 year old girl, I find this disgusting. I feel that...

John Gentile, writing for The Runout, about sweatshop merch being sold by punk bands.
Yet, fans are as much the reason for this as bands, if not more. (Actually, fans are probably more to blame). We all need to realize that the age of the $10-$12 shirt is over. I looked at the calendar. Itís not 1986 anymore. You know what? Twenty bucks for a t-shirt is reasonable. Donít give me that hooey that you ďCanít afford a $20 shirt.Ē First, if you canít afford a $20 shirt, then a $10 shirt made by a twelve year old who just lost his fingers is a pretty lousy alternative. Second, Iíve seen you all at the show. I saw *YOU* buying a $4 beer (plus one dollar tip!). If you can afford a band shirt,...

Carl Magnes, writing for Jacobinmag:
High pay comes with serious restrictions. Musicians must agree to a radius clause that prohibits them from performing within a radius (say one hundred miles) of the festival for a certain number of months (often six). The radius clause is also coupled with a subtler exclusivity clause: the inability of fans who canít afford the $200+ ticket prices to enter a major festival. When a show at a high-cost festival will be your only show for six months in a region, you offer your working-class fans a cold silence.

Update #2: Official pre-orders are now up.

Update: I've heard from a reliable source this information is incorrect. The record actually isn't finalized yet (Nate keeps wanting to add more stuff) but an early June release is still probable.

Nate Ruess' new album Grand Romantic was up for pre-order on Amazon for a few hours this morning. It contained a June 23rd release date and the following tracklisting:

Track Listing
1. Grand Romantic (Intro)
2. AhHa
3. Nothing Without Love
4. Take It Back
5. You Light My Fire
6. What This World Is Coming To (feat. Beck)
7. Great Big Storm
8. Moment
9. It Only Gets Much Worse
10. Grand Romantic
11. Harsh Light
12. Brightside

It's been a while since we talked about Nils Frahm, though the Berlin based composer has certainly been busy.

Until then, head to the replies to listen to his new song "Them" and read a lovely note from Nils himself.

We Are The Union are releasing a new EP called Keep It Down this Friday, May 15th, via Paper + Plastick Records. We are streaming the whole thing. Lead single and opener "Call In Dead" picks up right where their last record left off, equipped with a chorus that's guaranteed to be belted out at live shows. "The Dreams That You Forgot" has more of a ska/reggae influence musically, while "My Whole Life Is A Dark Room" is a straightforward punk song and arguably the best song here. Oh and there's a cover of Green Day's "Burnout" and a Smash Mouth inspired song ("The King Of Chords"). Needless to say, these six songs have a lot going on - give them a listen in the replies. If you like what...
