Check, check ... is this thing on? Is it Friday? Well, not quite, but it's still podcast day. Today we've got a special edition episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast talking exclusively about The Gaslight Anthem's upcoming new album, Get Hurt. Your two favorite hosts, and me, talk about our impressions of the album from first listen all the way up to now. Then we tackle the whole thing track-by-track and give thoughts, complaints, and discuss what we think works or doesn't work. The end of the episode has us looking at what we think about "deluxe" albums and if we consider the bonus tracks part of the canonical album or not. We really hope you enjoy it! The episode can be streamed and/or...

Living in Gainesville for four years taught me lots of things, and one of them was that there existed in Central and Northern Florida a hotbed of talented punk and emo bands. I watched groups like Gainesville's Dikembe and Orlando's You Blew It! play house shows before they signed to Tiny Engines and Topshelf Records, respectively, and I discovered Orlando's Henrietta when they put out a split with Tallahassee's Echo Base (who they will hit the road with this summer - dates in the replies) and South Florida's Gillian Carter. Henrietta, which will release its debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding, on August 28 via Animal Style, had a few older EPs which I then checked out at the time - and...

You can read our interview with The Summer Set here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be writing for a brand new record immediately after the tour is done, shooting for a Spring 2015 release.
Legendary came out in April of 2013, Id love to have a new record before April of 2015 just to say we got it out in under two years, thats really my main reasoning. I want to shorten the two year album cycle to about a year and a half, Id love to have it out in February.

You can read our interview with This Wild Life here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be releasing more video content in the fall, as well as writing new material. The band will also be one of the opening acts on Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil's winter co-headling tour.
Were going to do a really large U.S. Tour in the winter that isnt going to allow us to do any fall touring because of Warped Tours radius clause. So well be home and weve discussed doing some different things. Were definitely going to put out more video content in that time, well be writing more because we want to get ahead of the next record our records been out for a month now,...

Ive had so much success in the long term, and Im not trying to say it in any monetized way or the amount of CD sales. Im saying it by the fact that I went out, and Ill be able to tell my grandkids one day, Hey, follow your dreams, and really mean it, and then say that I did. I went out, had this crazy pipedream, and I just pursued it with all I had. Look at the places I got to go, and look at the...

The Front Bottoms will be releasing a split EP in the fall with rapper GDP.

Ashley Cadwallader has left Smalls. PropertyOfZack is reporting this is due to homophobia from her bandmates.
After months of struggling with the decision, Cadwallader realized she could no longer take the abuse and vitriole [sic] thrown at her by her own bandmates because they refused the accept the fact that she is gay.

The band has sent in a message to POZ, denying any homophobia or abuse:
Her leaving the band was a professional break. It had nothing to do with my past relationship with her, or who she is as a person. Ive always expressed nothing but love, and respect to not only her but the people around me. I grew up with a home with a mother who taught me well; love others...

The Gaslight Anthem share with NME that they were influenced by The 1975 on their new album, Get Hurt. We talk about the producer choice in today's special episode of the AP.net Podcast.
The band tracked down producer Mike Crossey in an effort to see if they could tap into something similar to the British group. "We were like, 'well that sounds different what would happen if a band like us works with a guy who makes records sound like that?'" says Fallon.

TBR is currently on the Warped Tour and recently signed with Rise Records.
Holy shit Red Scare is ten years old! That means it's been ten years since we met Toby Jeg, our dear friend who's been with us ever since! We have a lot of great memories together and it's certainly safe to say Red Scare was a critical label in TBR's journey. Celebrating a rad...
