It's been a while since All Get Out have released new tunes. But it looks like the band is teasing that their sophomore album is done.

Oklahoma City punks, Red City Radio, played at Austin's Red 7 on Friday October 10th to a small but rowdy crowd. Openers Threes Away and Direct Hit! were some of the most solid openers I had seen in a while. Check out photos of Red City Radio in the comments.

Read a new Noisey article with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail on the band's legacy, past, and present.
By the time Let it Enfold You, the band’s proper debut, had been released by Vagrant records in 2004, Senses Fail had gone, as Nielson puts it, from being a “shitty band from New Jersey” to the upper echelon of the Warped Tour set, playing “late-night TV shows and arenas,” which came with all the pluses (Fans! Stardom!) and minuses (Being called a sell-out! Having dumb hair!) that a sudden rise entailed. “You looked around and you were like, ‘This is 80s metal!’ These guys are wearing makeup, you’re out here on tour with Jared Leto who’s a fucking movie star, you’re fucked up, doing wild...

I really enjoyed this article:
When you have to make that trip to the record store, spend your money, and get burned on shitty albums sometimes, it makes you appreciate the good ones a little more. When you get to rip open that packaging and drive around listening to one album for weeks, there’s a connection that is hard to replicate in 2014. By the time you start getting into music, that experience will probably be long gone, and you’ll find different ways to connect with music. You’ll probably hear old people like me talking about how you kids don’t appreciate shit because you’ve never had to save up your money to buy that CD that the older kids in school were all talking about. I...

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of catching Jimmy Eat World on their 10 year anniversary tour for Futures in Kansas City. Check out my review of the night in the replies.
Although the tour wouldn't be hitting St. Louis, there was no question that I would be making the trek out to Kansas City to catch the band on their 10 year anniversary tour of the album that changed my life so many years ago. I had caught the band once before a few years back, and to say they put on a great live show would be a massive understatement. Couple that with the fact that Futures would be performed front to back, and a four hour drive both ways to Kansas City seemed more than worth it.

Be sure to share your favorite new releases with us as well!

We're following the trend of putting pumpkin spice in everything and we've shoved "pumpkin-pop" into this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. This week's topics include: How does album artwork set the tone or mood for an album? Does it matter at all? We explore where we think it works and where we think it fails (looking at you Set it Off). Then it's time to tackle the big news of the week: Hostage Calm's break up. We touch a little on Jason's thoughts on the new Andrew McMahon album, a little on Drew's thoughts on the new Transit, and then we get some director's commentary on Thomas's New Found Glory review. He explains his thought process and the other hosts ask questions. The...

We recently talked with Jordan Pundik about New Found Glory's latest record, Resurrection. Check it out here.
There’s nothing wrong with singing about girls. We’ve always sung about relationships and talked about relationships, but this one was a little more focused. There was a point where we thought this band wasn’t going to be a band anymore. When you come to that point where something you hold so close and love so dearly almost comes to an end, it puts things in perspective for you. That was a big thing, especially going into writing this record. This record was a very cathartic record for us.

Elle have profiled Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace.
Something that was important to Grace was showcasing the wide spectrum of people who identify as transgender, and dispelling any myths that any or all members of the community are exactly the same. “I really made an effort to talk not only to people who were much further along in their transition—someone like [MMA fighter] Buck Angel, who transitioned in the '80s—[but also] people who have transitioned in the last couple years," she says. "To just really showcase the spectrum [and to show] that it’s not like ‘This is what happens when you transition. This is where you end.’" Though in some instances, Grace says, there was some “selfish...
