Tom DeLonge sat down with Wondering Sound to talk about Enema of the State, AVA, and more.
We [worked in] three studios in the course of three or four months. Our first record took us three days, our second record took us four to six weeks or something, and Enema of the State was a three- or four-month thing. And then the next one was six months, and the next one was a year. I remember moving around a couple times in that three-month period, but we had a lot of jokes, we felt really good — we felt like we sounded good. It was the first time we felt we sounded good, so it was exciting.

Read a new interview with Davey Havok (AFI) discussing XTRMST at Alt Press.
I was extremely reticent to scream like that at all—ever. In fact, I’m not ever inspired to do it at all, except with XTRMST. Writing this record, it felt that [screaming] was the natural way to deliver those messages and those words. I imagine some people will think, “They want to play hardcore, he misses screaming.” Not at all. I have no interest in screaming except in this context. It was the message that made me want to do that.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at the music industry and the business it's become. We start by looking at record sales and how in 2014 we don't really have an accurate way of counting them. This then leads to a question posed to us on Facebook about when bands break up and there's this huge wave of support, where were all those fans during the band's career? We also look at some of the behind-the-scenes aspects to Thomas's New Found Glory review and all of the comments he's seen on this site and elsewhere. Was his review disrespectful to the band? Why did the new album get a 4 when the last album got an 8? How does a reviewer's opinion change and what...

Matt from Emery has posted his response to Mark Driscoll's resignation from Mars Hill Church.
I attended Mars Hill for 10 years, beginning in 2002, when it was a single location. It is the only church where I have ever been a Christian. I have been a worship leader, deacon, redemption group leader, small group host and leader, have done Biblical counseling, and even been a volunteer sound guy. I learned almost EVERYTHING I know about Jesus, God, and the Bible there, mostly from Mark Driscoll himself. He is the single biggest human influence on my spiritual life. I have spent some time around him personally, including standing back stage shooting the shit right before he was going on to...
