I find myself being extremely picky with music festivals in my old age, but the ridiculous(ly awesome) lineup at Riot Fest Toronto left me no choice but to make plans to attend. Over the past few weeks, I have been trying to finalize a schedule so I can make sure to catch every band I'm eager to see, but it took me only a few minutes upon starting on an actual list to say "Screw it, I'm just going to roam around, enjoy good music as I go, and have some delicious food and beer." That seems about as solid of a plan as it gets with my experience at festivals, except there are 5 bands at this year's Toronto Riot Fest that I will most definitely make sure to see -- rain or shine. Head to the...

Remember The Crimson Armada? They were a metalcore band that was gaining some steam a few years back, until vocalist Saud Ahmed decided to go in a new direction - The Holy Guile is that new direction. Today, we're premiering a new song from the band, "California Gold", a tribute to Mitch Lucker, who passed away in a motorcycle accident in November of 2012. The song is from the band's upcoming album OG (mixed by Joey Sturgis), which drops September 30th.

Dan Campbell just posted a photo of The Wonder Years' new practice space with the caption "Since our last practice spot was condemned by the board of health, we'll be writing our next record in this new luxurious practice space ... until it too gets condemned by the board of health." It seems as though they'll be getting to work on LP4 sooner rather than later.

Counting Crows have an excellent new album out today and we have a special interview with Adam Duritz talking about it. Check it out here.
I don’t think anyone knows what sells records. There is literally no one who thought our first record was going to sell that many. There’s no way. Nobody did. It just happens sometimes. You can’t manipulate popular culture. Well, I guess sometimes you can, but we’re not in that business. The smartest thing we always seemed to do was do what we wanted to do, since that’s what got us there in the first place. Our best records were always going to be made by us, so we just made the records we wanted to make. There’s a certain truth in that that bears...

David Weiss over at SonicScoop writes about the decision to allow no artificial reverb on La Dispute's Wildlife.
Like many feats of engineering, the “no reverb” rule came not by design but as a matter of natural course, starting at the initial sessions in Chicago. “We had miked the drums in the live room, and the room mics that were in there were set up for talkback,” Pedulla recalls. “Then the guitarist was in there to be next to his amp, and we started realizing, ‘This sounds cool.’ The parts needed this ambience, and sounded really good with that sound that you don’t get from close mics.

Max Bemis of Say Anything was featured on AV Club's "Hatesong" to talk about Nirvana's "Rape Me."
That’s just how it came across to me. It’s the sort of baseline assumptions that one can make. It’s sort of like Miley—I’m going to get a lot of shit for this—but it’s just like what Miley Cyrus is doing right now. We don’t really know what’s in her head or why she’s doing this. But we can assume she’s trying to grow up and expand her image and no longer be a teeny-bopper icon, and she’s trying to be dangerous and sexy and hip. So that’s our assumption that may be miles from whatever she’s actually thinking about.
