Most Instagram challenges are ridiculous, but some of the staff and a bunch of users are participating in #JanuaryRecordADay. It's one of those silly picture-a-day things, but it's vinyl, so we're all nerding out. Check out the challenge's rules in the replies, and leave your links if you're participating or want to talk vinyl.

Another #SoundNoSound clip is live, this one has vocals, a montage of some videos, and a shot of a vocalist's backside at the end. Brian Marquis, Brian Southall, and Culprit also posted their own "headphone videos" today. The timer on the website ends at 9:00am PST tomorrow. Final guesses?

Update: An AP.net user decoded the binary in the headphone videos as: "Everybody wants to lose control. Just to feel a little something that wasn't there before. Everybody hates to let things go. Clinging to the threads of what we know. The sickness longs to grow."

There's an new video up on Sound-No-Sound.com that has some audio - very programming heavy with distorted vocals throughout the track. A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, Colin Frangicetto, and Will Noon are the latest to tweet about it. The timer on the front page has just under 4 days left. Hear the sounds in the replies - anyone?

Yesterday it was Soupy and Shane Henderson - today it's Fred Mascherino, Justin Pierre, Joe Trohman, Andrew Cook, and others posting about #SoundNoSound. Watch new video clues in the replies - anyone cracked this yet?
Jack Appleby on 09/10/13 - 12:33 PM
Who likes viral mysteries? The latest is the website sound-no-sound being tweeted out by quite a few musicians. After some snooping around you can find videos of Soupy Campbell, Justin Pierre, Shane Henderson, Vic Fuentes, and many others on the "control" page. And then there's also the "music box" page. We've also discovered Adam Pressley's name in the page source, who looks to be from the band Prussia. Ok, so that's what we currently know ... the rest is now in your hands.

Pop culture site Buzzfeed posted a music video called "Punch (Let's Be Real)" that went viral (not because it's good or entertaining). The Brothers (formerly The Great Valley) created a pop-punk version of the song which was posted about on the site. Listen to it in the replies.

Our Lives In Motion announced their hiatus over a year ago, but it looks like something may be brewing in that camp.

Keagan Ilvonen on 12/29/12 - 04:08 PM
Join in with the crew discussing and trying to solve the mystery that is Shone. Things are getting even weirder and more interesting.

Update: Mysterious letters are being sent to people who signed up for the mailing list. If you received one, come share in the thread!

Update #3: Found this in the site code: "32 notes for 32 friENds tO tell tHe worldS" - CW

Update #2: The website has been updated.

Update: Thrice, Manchester Orchestra, Balance and Composure and Sainthood Reps all seem to be involved.

Kevin Devine and Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche) have posted a creepy link via their twitters. Any ideas what this could be?
Keagan Ilvonen on 12/21/12 - 01:05 PM
Madina Lake have posted a teaser video for an upcoming project tentatively titled Impervious. The teaser can be seen in the replies. The band's upcoming single from WWIII will be "Across Five Oceans."

It looks like Search The City is teasing an announcement for June 20. We reported in May that the band was making a new album.

What are Topshelf Records and No Sleep Records up to?
Adam Pfleider on 04/05/12 - 11:07 AM
Remember this? Well the song was recorded by Montana based artist David Boone, who now goes by the moniker; Dawns. He recently recorded his debut EP with Danton Supple (Coldplay, Starsailor, Morrisey) and plans to release it on June 20th. You can listen to the first track "Evidence and Answers" in the replies.

There are some new clues over at AllRiseForTheBlackMass.com.

All rise for the Black Mass. Who or what do you think this is? Search "#blackmass" on Twitter for clues.

What is The BUM Foundation? D.R.U.G.S, The Summer Set, Breathe Carolina, I See Stars, and more all seem to be down with the cause. Head to the replies to see a strange PSA video.
Keagan Ilvonen on 04/01/11 - 03:44 PM
Head to the replies to watch a video from someone known as King Dennis.

It appears as though Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa) has been scamming fans by claiming to sell Macbooks online.

Music blog Gorilla Vs. Bear has posted its list of the best albums of 2010. How'd they do compared to other lists you've seen?
Jay Nainav on 12/02/10 - 01:59 PM
Apparently you can chart on the Billboard 100 without writing a real song.

It looks like City (Comma) State has a female band member. Any ideas as to who it could be?

Earlier this week, we asked you if you knew who this band was. It was Icarus the Owl, and for thanks in helping us figure it out, we convinced the guys to let us give you a free download of their new song, "Mythomaniac" (right click > save as).

Miley Cyrus has stated that her next album will be her last for a while.
Keagan Ilvonen on 03/23/10 - 11:17 PM
This article seems to think Lady GaGa is already cementing her name as one of pop music's greatest. What do you think? Are six #1 singles in 14 months impressive enough to win over more than just the mainstream? Is she really the next Madonna?
Keagan Ilvonen on 03/23/10 - 09:40 PM
According to this article, the most increased buzz over a band at South by Southwest based on social media this year was Fang Island. The article also contains a list of the most talked about overall. Number one? NeverShoutNever.
Adam Pfleider on 03/23/10 - 12:18 PM
A band with the email address iamviralmarketing@gmail.com sent us a random unnamed song and we're trying to figure out who it is. So, in spite of whether or not we can do this, here it is for your download (right click > save link as). We leave it to you to figure it out and let us know if you know for sure who it is; we're stumped.

The Action Blast heard your pleas for vocals. You asked for it, you got it.
