This has been submitted almost 50 times now ... yes, if you go to Brand New's merch store and click on "news" you will find a bunch of Latin text. This "Lorem ipsum" text is used by web designers and publishers to fill out designs with fake text so they can see how it'll look without having to come up with something to write each time. I don't believe it has anything to do with anything beside that. I do not, however, know what "Bone Thrower" means under the store dropdown. Ok, no more submitting this please.

Do not get on stage with Fat Mike of NoFX. You will be taken down. Apparently Mike's neck was hurting, which lead to the reaction. The fan has taken to Twitter to calm everyone down, saying "it didn't even hurt." Video in the replies.

The New Zealand Herald is reporting that AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been charged with attempting to procure murders.
Rudd, who was dressed in jeans and a grey jersey, was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill. He did speak when he appeared in the dock and entered no plea to the charges. He has been bailed until his next appearance on November 27.

18 year old Derry, Northern Ireland artist SOAK has signed to Rough Trade and will release her debut solo album next year. In the meantime you should check out her new single "B a noBody" and the b-side "Shuvels" in the replies, especially if you're a fan of Beach House, Lykke Li or Laura Marling.

We gave your first taste of The Traditional's debut album back in August.

After a stint playing Fest, Tiny Moving Parts have hit the road with Dads and Choir Vandals for a few weeks and stopped by Austin's Red 7 last night. The room was full for a Tuesday night, and all three bands could feel the good vibes. Things got rowdy, as they always do after a night at Red 7 (I'm telling you, things happen there man), but not before I could snap a few shots of the Triple Crown Records band straight outta Minnesota, eh. Check out a few photos and the gallery link below.

Murder by Death have launched a Kickstarter.
By overwhelming demand, you guys convinced us that this is a much more interesting and effective way to pre-sell an album. We brought back a few things from the last Kickstarter and also created a bunch of new stuff we thought you'd like. There were moments of beauty that happened with the release of our last record- generous backers- friends making extraordinary gestures, and overwhelmingly positive reactions from everyone involved. Let's see what happens this time!

Spinefarm Records and and Search and Destroy Records, via Raw Power Management, have created a joint venture which will release new albums from Turbowolf and Atreyu next year.
Search and Destroy is an important part of our growth plan so we are really pleased to have this new agreement in place with Spinefarm," Raw Power Management founder and CEO Craig Jennings said in a statement. "Their enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve with the label made them the obvious choice for a global partnership and their company philosophy is a great fit with our own."

Aloe Blacc, writing for Wired:
First, unlike most people in creative industries, songwriters seem to have less control over our work than ever before. Knock off a handbag design from a high-end fashion house or use a sports teamís logo in your new t-shirt line, and expect a lawsuit in short order. And good luck copying a big tech companyís patented innovation. You need express permission from the original creators to use or copy their work before you resell it. Thatís how they protect the value of their work.

But the world doesnít work that way for songwriters.

Chris Dalley has left Ten Foot Pole.
So after 10 years, Iíve decided to resign as the drummer of Ten Foot Pole. I had a blast and want to thank Dennis Jagard for giving me the opportunity to rock for everyone. Also want to give thanks to Keith Divel, Chris Del Rio, Dan Kelly, and Scott Hallquist for being such a pleasure to jam with. It was time for me to give more attention to my other endeavors, and I wish TFP nothing but continued success in the future

Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail opens up about sexuality, identity, and addiction on the latest episode of the 100 Words or Less Podcast.
For over 9 years I suffered in a cycle of shame over my sexuality, substance abuse, sexual addiction, anxiety, depression, grief and self loathing. I fell into a pit of despair and did a lot of damage to myself and to people around me. Through most of it I kept a pretty clean and convincing sheet over the messiness of my life, which in turn caused even more pain. I did a lot of things that were very dangerous and put myself into situations where I was putting myself and others at risk Over the coarse of the last year I have been able to find a level of...

The AV Club has a nice write-up about this past weekend's Fest, which can be read here.
What makes Fest so different from other punk-affiliated festivals such as Riot Fest or Pouzza Fest is that it serves as a barometer of where the punk scene is while remaining impervious to outside trends. Instead of trying to keep pace with the outside world, Fest has its own focus, giving the bands that play a stamp of approval they canít get anywhere else.
