Geoff Rickly has talked with Noisey about Martin Shkreli and Collect Records.
My head is still spinning, and though I want to believe that there is some reason that he would do this that is some remotely positive way, the only thing I can see is that it is totally and completely heartbreaking.

I canít see my future at all in the label. I have to see what the bands want first, and see if there is any meaning or any mission following all of this. More than anything, I want the bands to see that I hold art as the guiding force in my life. Ultimately I see this going in the same way it always does, where all the artists get blamed for everything and capitalism is never held...

We recently interviewed Atlas Genius about their new album, Inanimate Objects. Check it out here.
Sonically, I feel like we really stepped it up with the sound of this album. I wanted it to sound bigger, but without it sounding Top 40 big. Thereís a certain glossy sheen you hear quite often on all the pop stuff, which is impressive but can get a little saccharine sweet. You feel like youíre going to get diabetes when you listen to it. We wanted to get a bigger sound on this album without it turning into a pop album.

Viet Cong will finally change their name.
Art and music are about creative expression. However, our band name is not our cause, and we are not going to fight for it. This is not what our band is about. There are many individuals more eloquent than us who have recently had a lot to say about the topic of the name and our appropriation of the name Viet Cong. For more insights into the arguments we encourage you to read some of these. We are a band who want to make music and play our music for our fans. We are not here to cause pain or remind people of atrocities of the past.

The truth is, weíve been planning to change the band name for the next record for months; it has not been an...

Before Banquets call it quits, they're releasing one last album, Spit at the Sun, on October 9th via Black Numbers. We're premiering a new song from the effort titled "Lucky Lighter" in the replies. As you'll hear, the New Jersey group have pushed their melodic punk sound to explore emo and post-rock influences. Clearly, they're looking to go out with a bang.

Head to the replies to watch Fable Cry's new music video for "You Ain't My Baby No More," which was shot in a single take. Inspired by classic songs of heartache, the track sounds kind of like The Vandals covering Foxy Shazam at the circus. It appears on the "theatrical scamp rock" group's new album, We'll Show You Where the Monsters Are, which is out now.

Luke O'Neil, writing for Bullett Media:
I donít want to speak for Brand New here, an almost universally loved band among a certain age of punk fans, but itís probably safe to say capitalist drug speculators werenít their intended target demo when they were writing The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me. Elsewhere he shared a photo of himself in possession of what he says is Kurt Cobainís credit card, because when youíre a millionaire music fan what else are you going to waste your stupid money on besides the literal emblem of dead celebrityís credit rating?

Morrissey says he will likely never play live in the UK again.
There is absolutely no way that we can generate any interest from record labels in the United Kingdom, therefore the imminent two nights at Hammersmith are likely to be our final ever UK shows. We are obsessively grateful for all interest and loyalty from our audience ... throughout 28 years ... but without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring. Thank you for so many absolutely incredible times. The pleasure and privilege is mine ...

Spin is reporting that Kesha has pushed for a preliminary injunction in the ongoing legal battle against her alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke.
Until this Court rules on the declaratory judgment claim, Kesha is at an impasse. She cannot work with music producers, publishers, or record labels to release new music. With no new music to perform, Kesha cannot tour. Off the radio and stage and out of the spotlight, Kesha cannot sell merchandise, receive sponsorships, or get media attention. Her brand value has fallen, and unless the Court issues this injunction, Kesha will suffer irreparable harm, plummeting her career past the point of no return.

Bring Me the Horizon's new album will debut at number two on the charts this week.
Rock band Bring Me the Horizon earns its highest charting album ever Ė and first Top 10 set Ė as Thatís the Spirit bows at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The set moved 62,000 units, of which 55,000 are pure album sales. The latter sum makes it No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart, and gives the band its best sales week ever. Their previous biggest sales frame came when their last album, 2013ís Sempiternal, bowed at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 with 27,000 copies sold in its first week. (That album was also their highest-charting set until this week.)
