Turnover is on tour right now with Lydia, Seahaven, and The Technicolors, their third full US support tour since the summer started. They released Peripheral Vision to much critical acclaim back in the Spring, an album that our staff has enjoyed a lot, so we were pleased to be given the opportunity to talk to vocalist Austin Getz for a little while before the show. You can find the interview here. They revealed to us that they have been working on some new songs, and have even recorded a few with Will Yip which will be released sometime soon.
We just got done recording a couple songs with Will Yip. Those songs are already done. We did them two weeks ago. No release plans yet, we had...

Come Wind will be releasing their new album Move In Place on November 20th. The album was fully fan funded via Kickstarter, and the band exceeded their goal. We have premiered a song or video for them every year since 2012, and we are keeping that up today with their new single "Clarity." Hit the replies to watch the video for the new song. Per usual, the song should definitely appeal to those of you who really miss The Graduate with some vibes from The Dear Hunter. If you like what you hear, be sure pre-order the album.
Trophy Lungs are releasing their new album Day Jobs on October 16th via Antique Records. The record is about the moment when someone encounters the realities of life and the internal battle faced to keep his or her spirits alive when times get tough. We are premiering the new video for "Bathroom Graffiti," which you can watch below. The song clocks in at just over two minutes, being a rapid speed pop-punk track that reminds me a lot of Forever Came Calling's Contender. If you like the track, be sure to pre-order the record.
The Cure are returning to North America for a full tour for the first time in 8 years. The Twilight Sad will support and you can check out dates revealed so far here. A full list of dates will be available in January.

A new start-up called "TapTape" launched recently. It promises to allow you to "invest" in musical artists. I'm going to time travel, Back to the Future almanac style, and put money down on Fall Out Boy while shorting the hell out of a few others.
As the artist's success grows, you automatically earn TapCoins. Use them to buy merch, tickets, Amazon credit -or reinvest them in the next artist. Move up the leaderboard and prove you know how to spot talent.

Matt Pond PArecently blogged that he is in a "full on brawl" with Doghouse Records and that he will "never see a dime" from his newest album.
These will be our last shows for the foreseeable future. Our problems are insignificant in the grand scheme and Iíve tried to subdue most of thefires in my life privately. But weíre in a full-on brawl with our label, Doghouse. I will never see a dime from The State Of Gold. They would rather have us fail than succeed with anything in our lives.
We talk about this all the time, how there arenít enough female-represented bands and artists at festivals. You donít see them. And itís really sad for us. We came up with the idea basically of why canít we just bring back a festival thatís just ladies. Not that we donít love the boysÖ I did see Melissa Ethridge in concert, I saw Sarah McLachlan in concert, I saw Paula Cole in concert, and Sheryl Crowe. All these amazing ladies had such an amazing outlet and place to play music, and it was really beautiful and I feel like thatís not really available anymore and that outlet isnít there. We talk semi-jokingly...

This can't exist in a space that is dominated by men. Music needs women whether it wants it or not. If this abuse continues, it will drive women even further away from an already-exclusive industry. You have to protect yourself and your career by protecting the man, and I'm fucking sick of doing that.
