Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees has penned a piece for The Guardian.
This past year I decided to come out, and since doing so – on my own terms, and in my own way – I have met and heard from hundreds of other men and women like me who feel deeply connected to their religious beliefs and yet are proudly, or sometimes shamefully, gay. As a proud gay Mormon man, I’ve received a lot of questions: How can you be Mormon and be gay? How can you be a part of a religion that doesn’t accept you?

The Offspring's Dexter Holland talked to PunkNews about the band's future. He's unsure if the band's next release will be a full album.
We’re not really sure. We used to always do records where we’d go in and spend as long as it took — and sometimes that takes like a year and a half to really do it — and that seems like a long time to wait in between records. And no one really buys albums anymore…or maybe they do, I don’t know. But the way people really digest music has just changed; it’s not really the same way where you’re gonna sit down with the record and really listen to it.

Of Mice and Men have canceled some tour dates due to Austin Carlile's health.
Due to Austin having unforeseen health issues we're unfortunately not going to be able to play the first few festivals of our upcoming tour in Europe while he rests up. This will include our scheduled appearances at Summer Breeze today, Pukkelpop on Friday and Elb-Riot and X-Rockest this weekend. We apologize to our fans in Belgium and Germany who were attending these shows but we will be back soon to make up for this. We are going to be resuming our tour on August 19th in Berlin and all other upcoming shows including Reading and Leeds Festivals are unaffected.

Billboard is reporting that contrary to recent reports, Morrissey has not been dropped from his label.
In spite of that, Billboard has confirmed that Morrissey is still under contract with Harvest, the label behind his most recent album, World Peace Is None of Your Business. A source close to the situation tells Billboard that Moz has not been dropped by Harvest/Capitol, and that his contract with the company calls for two releases, the first of which was World Peace.

Update: True-To-You have posted the following response:

Stray From the Path have posted a blog post about the horrible situation currently unfolding in Ferguson, MO.
A lot of people have been asking for our thoughts on what is happening in Ferguson, MO. I will admit, as things started unfolding, I tried to stay away from social media. As I have talked out against the Police in the past…those conversations escalate almost immediately, and last time It was hard for me to keep my composure. My only hope is that now people will start to see what we are talking about. Journalists attacked, media has been blacked out, an 18 year old has been killed and the police are showing their true colors.

Gene Simmons believes those that are depressed should just kill themselves.
For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, 'I'm depressed. I live in Seattle.' Fuck you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I'm the guy who says 'Jump' when there's a guy on top of a building who says, 'That's it, I can't take it anymore. I'm going to jump.' Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fuck up, have some dignity and jump! You've got the crowd," Simmons said. "By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, 'I'm going to blow your fuckin' head off.' He'll go, 'Please don't.' It's true. He's not...

In the Billboard interview Claudio also discloses the band is eyeing a spring/summer 2015 release for their next effort.
I've been working on some material for the last year and a half or so when we were living in Brooklyn, which I found kind of inspiring and not so inspiring. There's some interesting tunes I wrote down there with a perspective I couldn't necessarily get here in the country. It's veering off in a slightly different direction, but it's still Coheed -- not so much a direction as...
