Bob Dylan's new album, Shadows in the Night, will be sent to 50,000 random AARP the Magazine subscribers. Mr. Dylan also was interviewed by the magazine -- his first in some three years.
Risky? Like walking across a field laced with land mines? Or working in a poison gas factory? There’s nothing risky about making records," Dylan says. "Comparing me with Frank Sinatra? You must be joking. To be mentioned in the same breath as him must be some sort of high compliment. As far as touching him goes, nobody touches him. Not me or anyone else.

Asking Alexandria have posted a message about Danny leaving the band. They'll be on Warped Tour with their new singer.
t’s with heavy heart that I must announce, yet I am sure comes as no surprise to you all, that Danny has decided to leave Asking Alexandria to pursue other musical interests. Before you lose your composure and think this is the end I would like to say that myself, James, Cam and Sam have all been in this since day one. We love Asking Alexandria and we love every single fan/AAFamily member around the world. As with any family there are ups and downs. There are good times and hard times.

Paramore have announced their "Write the Future" tour with Copeland. Dates in the replies.
It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close. We've had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one. What wouldn't feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band's career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way. So we've decided to do one last little run with it. Smaller shows, beautiful theaters…and we're not calling it a tour, by the way. Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration. As we acknowledge the past few years (and more) of everything we've been through together, we're also looking forward...

Danny Worsnop has left Asking Alexandria.
To all of my friends and fans: I would like to let you know that Asking Alexandria and I are moving forward in separate ways. Over the last eight years together we’ve done some amazing things and created something truly special. I now, same as then, want what’s best for the band and at this point in time, that isn’t me. Asking Alexandria will continue to tour throughout the year and will be working on a new album. I will always support and love Asking Alexandria and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them. I am excited for the next chapter of my life with We Are Harlot and will see you all on the road!

Yesterday, Pitchfork posted Ian Cohen's review for Cloakroom's album Further Out, which has led to a public outcry from industry folk and music listeners alike. Since then, the publication has modified the review -- presumably from pressure. Here's an excerpt from the original review (full version can be found in the replies):
The most frequently quoted fact from Cloakroom’s bio is that they’re a trio of factory workers from Indiana. It is a nice bit of backstory that makes sense in hindsight upon hearing their minimally arranged, moderately morose and maximally loud debut LP Further Out—so long as they’re not framed as the sort of blue-collar Hoosier hero that might inspire a John...

Thomas is in Germany this week, Drew's in a state of sports-despair, and I'm in Arizona. That doesn't mean we don't have an episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast for you though. This week's podcast was recorded directly after our episode last week, and Thomas had to go pack for his trip, so it's just Drew and I. We don't have a whole lot of follow-up because we hadn't even aired the last episode when we were recording this one. We touched on two main topics this week: When someone recommends a band to us, how do we dive into their catalog? Newest release first? Oldest? Their most popular? If a band has a big catalog, is it a deterrent from trying to get into the band? After that we spend a...
