It would be easy to overwhelm you with descriptions of what Blind Mice sounds like. The New Bedford, MA-based band, which features Half Hearted Hero guitarist AJ Mills and former Ra Ra Riot drummer Michael Ashley, takes cues from a lot of '90s alt-rock, but I also hear a lot of more modern punk-rock in their new song, "Fifteen," which we're premiering in the replies. The easiest comparison to point to would be Polar Bear Club, with those gruff vocals paving the way -- but by no means is this band ripping off anything, incorporating shades of Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind into their new EP, Sunday Songs. That release drops on March 17 via Animal Style Records, and you can pre-order...

We're excited to premiere a song from Young Pioneer, a new unsigned rock band from Michigan. For fans of Cartel and Acceptance, the band brings a straight-forward approach to rock that's worth getting excited about. If you'd like to check them out live, you can see them at the Pontiac, MI date of the Glamour Kills Tour, featuring headliners Set It Off. You can check out "Let's Be Alive" in the replies.

Alternative Press has talked with Mark Hoppus of Blink-182.
We haven’t played a show with Matt yet, so it’s too soon to really say what goes beyond on that. We’re very optimistic and excited about the possibilities of continuing with Matt in some way. He’s a good friend, a great guitarist, a great singer. He has a really positive attitude. I think we’ve been friends for, what, 15 years? We don’t have anything booked beyond that, but we are hopeful and excited.

And even as I watch them act so different to what I know of them to be, I still care deeply for them. Like brothers, and like old friends. But our relationship got poisoned yesterday. Never planned on quitting, just find it hard as hell to commit.

Fireworks asked Bill Clinton to play saxophone on their last album. He declined because his schedule is "quite full."
The email, from Jenna Daley, read: "Thank you for inviting President Clinton to play his saxophone as part of your band's album in September of 2013. As I'm sure you can imagine, his calender is shaping up to be quite full and due to prior constraints on his schedule, he is unable to join. I want to thank you again for your outreach, and wish you the best with your ongoing album recording."

The more news that comes out regarding this Blink-182 stuff, the more painful it gets to post about it. Last night Tom DeLonge posted on Twitter that "A year ago Mark and I spent a week on the phone with managers debating parting with Travis...don't pretend there isn't more to this story" -- that tweet has since been deleted. I'm trying to think of something to bring positivity to this situation but am drawing a blank. I guess ... rank some stuff or something. As I wrote on Facebook yesterday, one of the things that first drew me to this band was that it seemed like they were all friends just having fun together and playing crappy punk rock music. That carefree attitude was what I wished...

Rolling Stone has talked with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker of Blink 182.
We're booked January 5th to go into the studio. On December 30th, we get an e-mail from Tom's manager saying that he has no interest in recording and that he wants to do his other, non-musical stuff and that he's out indefinitely. There's a flurry of e-mails going back and forth for clarification about the recording and the show and his manager sends [an e-mail] back saying, "Tom. Is. Out." Direct quote. This is the exact same e-mail we got back in 2004 when Tom went on indefinite hiatus before.
