I want to wish everyone a safe and fun holiday season. The website always slows down a little toward the end of the year, no doubt because we're all stuffing ourselves with good food and drinks (hopefully some good music too). If you're looking for something to do over the next few days, the AbsolutePunk Podcast released our AMA episode for Christmas, we've got a thread up in the general forum for "best of 2014" lists (the staff feature will be up on January 5th), and there's a pretty fun "what did you get for Christmas" thread up as well.

During the Save Rock and Roll tour, Fall Out Boy got Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco pretty wasted and had him tell the drunk history of the band. Head to the replies to watch the almost nine minute epic.

Matt from Set Your Goals has posted an update on the band's Facebook filling us in with what the band's been up to.
On a related note, I've gotten a ton of angry messages asking for an answer on the status of the band. The truth is, we just don't know the future for certain and don't want to get people's hopes up or give any information that could end up being untrue. As a band, we are laying low for a while and busy individually with our adult lives. We haven't "broken up" per se, we're just focusing on other things for the time being. Here's what we've been up to:
-Dan got married and will be moving to Atlanta, GA, next month.
-Joe recently moved to Portland, OR, and plays in a band...

Set Your Goals vocalist Matt Wilson has started a new band called Chains. Listen to their first song, "Cages," in the replies. Their debut EP, The Sorrow, The Sadness, will be out in early 2015 through Calaveras Records.
I am equal parts darkness and light, and I have always had ideas that wouldnít quite work for Set Your Goals; either the lyrics were too dark or the parts were too aggressive. Chains is an outlet for that. Once Set Your Goals slowed down I was able to put my ideas into motion. I grew up listening to extreme music, and this project is more in line with those tastes.

Anberlin posted an image on Instagram stating that they'll be releasing merch projects, live records, a vinyl box set and more next year.

This holiday week is always a little slow around the website ... but, we didn't want to leave you hanging without an episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. We recorded a special "AMA" episode that goes through a whole bunch of questions asked to us either on the website or Twitter (using the #AskAP hashtag). We cranked out a whole bunch of them and I put a run down of those questions in the show notes. We want to say thanks to everyone that asked us any questions, we'll definitely be doing this again in the future -- so if you have feedback, let us know! Thank you to everyone that listened or gave this podcast a try this year, I think I speak for all three of the hosts when I say that it...

Tom DeLonge has talked with NME, and says Blink-182 have "solved the puzzle" for how to release their new album.
"We've just started the conversation in the past couple of days of when/where and how to start recording," he said. "We've been kind of taking our time trying to figure out the best way to put the record out, you know. I think we just solved that puzzle a couple of weeks ago. I donít think we have anything to prove. I think we have to just try and go into it and try to make the best album of our career and create a situation thatís really creative and conducive to that idea"

Say Anything frontman, Max Bemis, was caught on video puking on stage last night ... by TMZ. Weird.
Lead singer Max Bemis was towards the end of the set at the House of Blues in West Hollywood when he projectile vomited without warning. It's unclear why ... but there was alcohol on stage so it ain't that hard to read between the lines.
