Brand New, Manchester Orchestra, and Kevin Devine will be playing Cooperstown, NY in August. I feel like a gambler standing over a craps table begging the dice to fall ... but instead all I keep repeating is "come on, gimme a tour, gimme that tour ... let's go tour!"

Our interview with Walk The Moon can be found here.
What we have really worked hard to do over the past five years is build a strong fan base through touring and make a name for ourselves as a live band. We donít use any tracks onstage. We are playing or triggering every noise that you hear live in front of you. I think it makes a difference to people. They can sense the energy and the possibility of total failure. I think that makes our concerts a special experience, and thatís really what we pride ourselves on, is the live show.

Today we're bringing you a new song from Drakulas, an Austin based quartet featuring Mike Wiebe from the Riverboat Gamblers and Zach Blair from Rise Against. Listen to "Gain Ground" in the replies and let us know what you think. The band's lo-fi garage rock style is catchy and might remind you of the Hives with a definite rough edge. The guys are playing Punk Rock Bowling later this month and you can pre-order the band's digital EP/7" through Red Scare Industries if you like what you hear. OWOWOWOWOWOWOW will be officially released on May 12th.

We appreciate that the community brings issues to our attention. Itís very clear that after the two unfortunate events that weíve been through that better checks and balances within the all ages community are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone.

Harry Corrigan of No Good News has posted a statement on Tumblr.
Iíd like to address the event on July 23rd, 2012. I feel extremely remorseful about what happened that night. I am not apologizing because of public scrutiny, but because I treated someone incorrectly. I was insensitive and I was wrong. This event has forever changed my view of what consent is. I was 19 at the time of the event and Iíve spent the last three years confused as to why people were upset with me because I knew in my heart I would never do anything to intentionally hurt someone. I take full responsibility for being insensitive and misjudging the situation. I believed it was a consensual occurrence between two...
