Chris Walla has left Death Cab for Cutie.
Short version: Iím leaving Death Cab for Cutie. My last show with the band will be September 13, 2014, at the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC. I hope you guys can make it. Longer version: I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple. I will miss being a quarter of this band, and will support whatever course Death Cab for Cutie chooses from here. I am profoundly grateful to Ben, Nick, and Jason, for the experiences that define my adult life. Truly grateful, beyond words. Thank you.

Light Years is stuck in a hype-y pop-punk genre that, to be perfectly honest, it doesn't quite fit in. Its members are older than most of their peers, and they don't play the type of Tumblr-friendly songs that lead bands to high Billboard chart positions. That's okay though -- because what Light Years does best is deliver honest, straightforward punk rock tracks presented with excellent guitar work, catchy melodies and thoughtful craftsmanship. You can stream the title track from their forthcoming Animal Style Records EP, Temporary, in the replies -- and when you're done enjoying it, you can preorder the 12" here.

"I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. Itís not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone"

Whilst it's been great to see so many outpourings from people about trying to fight depression, we should try our best to not allow this care to just exist through a series of statuses and tweets and for us to just forget about it in the coming weeks. No matter how much we tell people to try to fight depression and never give up, the most important thing is for the people around them to just be there. Depression isn't something one can just fix about themselves, the responsibility also lies with those around them to show that...

I'm pretty sure I can count on one hand the amount of times I've taken a real vacation from this website. Usually even 'vacation' means I'm checking my phone every few hours and making sure all my emails are answered. However, this weekend I'm going to be heading to the coast with some friends for a few days and I am going to try and shut my phone off for most of that time. I'm looking forward to trying to decompress from the job and enjoy some good books, good company, and get caught up on listening to the backlog of my favorite podcasts. Before taking off I wanted to make sure we had a podcast episode up this week. We've really been trying to be consistent and have one of these up...

Three major labels are taking VKontakte, a Russian social-network (and the website where New Found Glory's recent single leaked), to court over piracy.
A judge in arbitration court for the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region decided on Monday to consolidate separate complaints from Sony Music Russia, Universal Music Russia and Warner Music U.K. into one case against VKontakte, which boasts 142 million global users and is Russia's second most popular website. VK openly allows users to upload copyrighted music and videos to their profiles, but the site has yet to secure licensing deals with rights holders, despite numerous warnings from regulators. The labels want VK to pay damages and...
