Shane Blay, the new frontman of Wovenwar, has posted an update to clarify that he will still be in Oh, Sleeper as well.
To put to rest the rumors that I'm leaving Oh Sleeper I tell you this: Micah and I started this band 8 years ago and have stayed with it through the thick and thin. That is still the case. Its tattoo'd on my chest for crying out loud. As long as Oh Sleeper is a band, I'll be in it.

France has dropped the anti-discrimination case against Bob Dylan.
Now that the five-month investigation into Dylan's case has been closed, the same charges he faced have been brought against Rolling Stone France publisher Michael Birnbaum, who faces up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of €45,000 ($62,000) for publishing the remarks. Neither his lawyer nor representatives from the U.S. edition of Rolling Stone gave comments to the Wall Street Journal.

Fun. are getting back to work on a new album.
"It's weird to talk about this, but it is interesting when you look at a song like 'Some Nights.' I remember when writing it, the thought was, 'No one’s gonna understand this. This isn't gonna happen. And this is the last chance, and then I gotta go get a real job,'" he said. "The first song on this new album is like the opposite of that, lyrically. You know, 'You got what you wished for. What the fuck are you wishing for now?'

Brenden Kelly, of The Lawrence Arms, reflects on the last six-years of blogging.
As for things I’ve learned that aren’t about the craft of writing: Don’t say shit that’s controversial or antagonistic unless you’re sure you mean it or you REALLY don’t care. The internet is full of trolls and all they want to do is hurt people who make stuff (even stuff as inconsequential as a dumb blog or thought catalog listicle). That’s just their general MO. If you insult something they like, watch the fuck out.

Music attorney Lee Phillips believes that labels made a mistake by not doing a deal with Napster. Hindsight is twenty-twenty and all that -- but the article raises some good points.
“The labels will pay anything to keep prestige acts,” he says, pointing to his recent handling of negotiations on behalf of Barbra Streisand to re-sign with Columbia Records. “But there are only a handful of artists in that category. In signing new acts, it’s not only about talent, but what kind of following you bring to the table. That’s why labels have started signing these 360 deals. Since they’re not making money from albums sales, they want a piece of touring, publishing merchandising and endorsements.”

You Me at Six will be postponing their North American tour.
Following more than a year of straight touring, Josh is suffering from vocal exhaustion and is under doctor’s orders to rest his vocal cords for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Matt, Max, Chris, Dan, and of course, Josh, are therefore sorry and disappointed to announce the unavoidable postponement of their upcoming North America Tour, which was due to start in LA on April 21st. Given Josh’s need for rest, the band is unable to perform at the high energy level for which they’re known.

ALL VIP & GA tickets for the tour will be valid for the rescheduled shows, which will now run from September 15th through October 20th. The new shows...
