Geoff Rickly tells the New York Times that his decision to cut ties with Martin Shkreli may end the label. I feel like if there was ever a time to crowdfund some money to get the label back on their feet ... this would be the time. I'd be in.
Mr. Rickly said losing Mr. Shkreli’s financial support might result in the label’s closing. “This is going to end the career of the record label, no doubt,” he said. “If I were a band on the label I would be having a serious crisis of faith right now. The amount of money I have in the bank doesn’t cover my outstanding invoices. It’s devastating

Collect Records have severed ties with Martin Shkreli.
Today, Collect Records — with the support and encouragement of all of our artists — have agreed to fully sever our relationship with Martin Shkreli, effective immediately.

When I decided to get into business with Martin, we took him on as a patron. He was completely silent and allowed us to do business as we pleased. His only ask was that we sign bands that we believed could make great art given the right environment and not to focus on a profit, no matter how dire the bottom line.

Never in a million years did any of us expect to wake up to the news of the scandal that he is now involved in. It blindsided and upset us on every...

A judge has ruled that the companies collecting royalties on the song "Happy Birthday" do not hold a valid copyright.
In a stunning reversal of decades of copyright claims, the judge ruled that Warner/Chappell never had the right to charge for the use of the "Happy Birthday To You" song. Warner had been enforcing a copyright since 1988, when it bought Birch Tree Group, the successor to Clayton F. Summy Co., which claimed the original disputed copyright.

Alexisonfire have posted a clarification of what "back" means.
It was an unforgettable summer. All of us are extremely grateful to have such loyal and dedicated fans who were willing to stick with us. That being said, we feel the need to clarify something. 'Alexisonfire is officially back' may well be true, but it seems some may be reading more into this than they should. The truth is, nothing has really changed. We all have our own careers and families which require our attention and as far as Alexisonfire is concerned, there are no immediate plans.

What 'Alexisonfire is back' does mean is that the 5 of us are back in each other’s lives and are as good friends now as we’ve ever...

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend Riot Fest and Exposition in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. While the weekend turned out to be a muddy affair, it was still a tremendous experience and one that I will remember fondly for a very long time. I saw some really fantastic performance including those by Andrew WK, Thrice, and Weezer. Hit the replies to read about the exhausting and exciting weekend I had.

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 can’t 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. There’s 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 you’re 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, we’ve been planning to change the band name for the next record for months; it has not been an...

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.
