We recently interviewed U.K. two-piece sensation Royal Blood. Check it out here.
We didn’t go into the room going, “Let’s just start with bass and drums.” I picked up a bass, me and Ben had a jam, and then that was it. We decided to not have a guitarist by default, really. It’s like if you started making a pizza, you’re also making the simultaneous decision to not make lasagna. You didn’t choose to not make lasagna, you just chose to make pizza. You didn’t make two decisions. It’s the same with us. We went with the mode where I’m going to play bass. We didn’t decide to not have a guitar, I just decided to play bass.

The AbsolutePunk Podcast returns this week with the main discussion topic centered around growing up with bands and their musical progression versus growing out of bands as you get older and your tastes change. We use the upcoming release of two albums, Yellowcard and New Found Glory, as sort of the backdrop to this talk. This then leads us into talking about bands having to compete with their past albums for attention, the editorial by Talib Kweli posted earlier this week, and, of course, a brief foray into the whole stage diving thing. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

Mutemath have posted an alternative version of "In No Time" that you can stream in the replies.
Many times we record multiple versions of songs for an album to make sure we find the best framework for a song idea. Especially our favorite ones. When we turned in Odd Soul to WB, there was debate on whether or not In No Time needed a more conventional approach. And although we tried, we wound up sticking with the original, more unconventional version, which is what is on the album. But here's the unreleased alternate version, which is still a nice listen.

In a panel at New York's Advertising Week on Monday (Sept. 29), Stefani's manager Irving Azoff revealed that the 44-year-old singer is currently in Miami, recording new tracks with frequent collaborator (and Voice co-star) Pharrell Williams. Next week, Azoff added, Stefani will determine which track will be the lead single, which she plans to perform on The Voice later in the season.

One of the writers of One Direction's "Steal My Girl", Julian Bunetta, has commented on the whole hoopla over the piano lick.
When we sat down and played the piano lick, nobody had any references in their head about what they wanted to write or anything and then I saw all the things (comments) about that (Journey song). At the end of the day, the lyric and the melody have nothing to do with any other song that I have ever heard. Sometimes there's only so many things you can do with a piano at that tempo. There is an age-old saying that great minds think alike so, naturally, sometimes people are going to write on the same inspirational wave lengths and come up with things that are...

Gerard Way did an AMA with Reddit earlier this week. All of his answers can be found here.
Wow! I'm so glad that helped in figuring out your gender identity. I have always been extremely sensitive to those that have gender identity issues as I feel like I have gone through it as well, if even on a smaller scale. I have always identified a fair amount with the female gender, and began at a certain point in MCR to express this through my look and performance style. So it's no surprise that all of my inspirations and style influences were pushing gender boundaries. Freddy Mercury, Bowie, Iggy, early glam, T-Rex. Masculinity to me has always made me feel like it wasn't right for me. It was...

Immediately following Woe, Is Me, I knew I still wanted to do music, but I just didn’t know at that point whether it would be a new band, solo album, whatever.
