It has been the most amazing 12 years, but the time has come for us to call it quits, and announce that we won't be an active band anymore. But before we go, we will be doing an abbreviated FINAL tour across nine Canadian cities this coming May. We will announce all the details next week. Also, we are going to release a special last album with some new songs & unreleased tracks...and a bunch more cool stuff to say thank-you. So get ready to hear from us a BUNCH starting now, and until the final tour in May. There are a lot of places we won't get to play again, and that sucks, but this short tour is all that we could make work with our...
Green Day will release Demolicious - a collection of 18 demos recording during the trilogy set, a previously unreleased track called "State of Shock," and an acoustic version of "Stay The Night" - on Record Store Day on April 19th.

Last week, I got the chance to chat with Chris Carrabba (of Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever fame) about his new band, Twin Forks. During the interview, Carrabba opened up about his long-held aspiration to pursue folk music, the slow and steady formation of the new band, an upcoming tour with Augustana, his current feelings about his other musical projects, his opinions on the modern mainstream folk resurgence, and his friendship with Butch Walker. Check out the interview here and the review of the new Twin Forks album here.
Day at the Fair - one of the most underappreciated bands of the Drive-Thru Records glory days - is back with their first song in nine years. Head to the replies to stream "The Brightening," which was produced by Rob Freeman. If you like what you hear, pick up the single on Bandcamp, iTunes or Amazon. All profits will go toward the recording of their final album, The Epilogue, which is due out later this year on Broken Heart Records.
New England is becoming a hotbed for up and coming pop-punk/emo/indie acts. When I had Grandview's record sent to me by a friend, I knew this had to be heard on the site. One dash Transit, Into It Over It, and Pentimento, Everything Between Paint And A Wall will surely attract many new fans once it's heard. Listen to the record in the replies and grab it on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
Fireworks will be chatting here on AP.net this Thursday, February 27, at 8PM EST / 5PM PST. You can stop by to ask the band questions about its new record, Oh, Common Life, which drops on March 25 via Triple Crown, or their upcoming tour supporting The Wonder Years. Set yr calendars!
