You thought things were sounding good when Chelsea Wolfe released the fantastic "Iron Moon" a few weeks ago? You haven't heard anything yet. She just released the song that will knock you on your ass and make you re-evaluate everything.

The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. The first installment in the series comes courtesy of yours truly, and let me tell you, it should be a federal crime for songs like Fetty Wap's "RGF Island" and Taylor Swift's "New Romantics" to not be on every single Summer 2k15 playlist. Alas, they aren't available on streaming services so I couldn't include them here. However, I did assemble a collection of songs that I think make a pretty damn good beach or BBQ soundtrack, which you can check out in the replies via Spotify and Rdio.

Even in a mere 2-and-a-half minutes, North Carolina post-hardcore act Iselia are able to evoke the intensity, passion and dynamics of acts like La Dispute and Pianos Become the Teeth with their new song, "First Strike." The track appears on their upcoming EP, Lost Star, which comes out June 16th through Cardigan Records.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast touches on some follow-up from last week, discusses thoughts and predictions on if Apple will release a new streaming service next week at WWDC and what we'd like it to be, and then we look at building hype online in 2015 and The 1975's ability to do just that. We spend some time compare and contrasting with Nate Ruess's album build up and wonder how his new solo album is going to do. We finish up talking about Riot Fest, The Academy Is... reuniting, and good albums with bad album covers. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

We recently interviewed Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot) about his new solo undertaking The Wonderlands, which involved writing a song for each hour of the day and working with 24 different producers. Check it out here.
Music has always been a landscape for me to find meaning and to be able to reflect on the real world from a safe distance of poetry and metaphor and melody. When I thought about the idea of creating a world, I thought let’s start by tracing the course of a day of darkness and light. The hours of a clock become the backdrop for the narrative of a song, specifically the light and the dark that’s present at that time of day.

Motion City Soundtrack talk in a new interview about Tony Thaxton's departure and reveal a few details about the new album.
“[There was a] period where we were a little bit on autopilot because we were touring so much, and it started to become routine to an extent. Now, it’s like “whoa.” I’ve been in this band 13 years,” Taylor continues, “and we’re still doing this, and we’re not getting any younger and you just really try and enjoy every moment you can. Go out, wander the city. You’re travelling around the earth right now. Go out and enjoy that. Don’t just sit in a room and stare at your phone. For me that’s been the biggest thing, exploring what I’m lucky enough to be able to do.”...

Austin Kerr, formerly of Set if Off, has posted another statement on Tumblr.
I will now never come on to another person who shows interest in something I’ve created again. That’s not what that type of attention means. I’ve on often drank heavily on tour and gotten too intoxicated to remember after show events. Some allegations seem to be based on these times. As soon as I first heard I made anyone feel uncomfortable 14 days ago, to make an effective end. I stopped drinking, flirting with and hugging anyone at shows or online. Then made this known to the sources of these allegations before the blog post went up.

Danny Samet, merch and/or tour manager for bands like Say Anything, Dustin Kensrue, and Minus the Bear, has started posting a sign up at all his merch displays that reads: "Music should be a safe community. No misogyny, no homophobia, no transphobia, no racism, no sexual abuse. One strike, you're out." In the grand scheme of things it may be small, but I think it's awesome and I hope this sort of thing catches on at more shows.

My Cardboard Spaceship Adventure will release their debut full length album, Seeker, on July 14th. You might recognize their unique name from when we premiered a song of theirs three years ago. Well, we are premiering a new song called "I Lost Again," which you can hear below. The guitar strums and vocal refrains reminisce the likes of Acceptance, with the chorus really picking up. It's not much of a surprise why the band has opened for Mae, Anthony Raneri, and Hellogoodbye. If you're liking the track, you can pre-order the record.

Castle of Genre released their new album, Home: Loss & Ghosts, this week. To celebrate, we are streaming the whole thing, which you can check out in the replies. Lyrically, the album's concept is that no matter how bad the memories that are rooted in where and what your "home" is, it's always going to be your home regardless and that will never change. Musically, the album lays in the more noodly emo genre, appealing to both fans of The World Is A Beautiful Place and even Manchester Orchestra at times ("Champion of Death"). The band cites influences of The Killers, and at times, the vocal accent is definitely similar. You can grab the album for $5.

You can check out our interview with Marianas Trench here. The band's new album, Astoria, will be released later this year.
I think the difference with this record is that the lyrics are very candid. We had a lot of stuff going on with the band over the last year and a half, which is the reason why it took us so long to get this new record out. There's been a lot of personal stuff happening. Nothing with the four guys or anything, but just personal stuff. I won't get into any gritty details, but when you guys hear this new record, it's an open book. It's reading right from the diary.
