Here's a little something to get you all amped up before the Team USA game today: Noisey has written an article ranking Drive Thru Records' releases from bad to really bad. The label's co-founder, Stephanie Reines, weighed in with her thoughts, of course:
This is a GREAT tribute! The list of “worst” bands on our shitty-ass label reminds me JUST HOW GOOD our bands were and still are. Many of them still touring with fanbases bigger than ever! Fuck, me & Richard Reines have such good taste in music. And our branding was good enough to stand the test of time. They’re STILL talking about DTR 15+ years later. Bottom line: DTR AND OUR BANDS RULE! Hey, so does our former staff!

Soundsupply has released its latest drop. This one is a special edition drop in partnership with Drive-Thru Records. In the digital-drop-guide there's an interview with Drive-Thru founder Stefanie Reines -- where she hints at the possibility of getting the old gang back together.
After 5 years, Richard and I seemed to have found the inspiration and desire to start again. For some reason we love to prove ourselves. The most exciting thing for us is to take something from nothing, and build it. That’s what we did with our label. It’s what we did with every band on our label. Now we’re getting the itch to do it again. We may not call it "Drive-Thru Records," but something is brewing!

Last night on The Gunz Show, Finch member R2K spoke with Gunz about the What It Is To Burn reunion shows, and their willingness to play them as long as Deryck wasn't allowed to be a part of it. Topics also included the set list and production of the show, and the steps the band took to finally all get together in a single room and decide to play shows again.

The Stellar Life has broken up.
Message from the BandThe Stellar Life has decided to part ways. You (the fans) were amazing, you all made this so much fun for us we cant even explain. Unfortunately with other bands and living so far away from each other, it did not work to our expectations. Dave and Tyler have started to write music for a new project which will be out very soon. Tom has obligations with Cute Is What We Aim For, and Billy has started a project of his own. Expect to hear things from every band and expect to see these bands tour in the summer of 13. Thank you all again for the support over the past two years.

The Stellar Life is currently recording its debut album slated to be released on Drive Thru Records. I spoke with co-owner Richard Reines today and while the label will not be coming back like people may hope, he said they have things in the works but did not specify.

Gotta say, yesterday's discussion about the Drive-Thru Records' generation was one of the best moments I've had on the website in a long time. Talking with so many people that experienced similar things, hearing the stories, listening to the music again at the exact same moment I knew others were ... it was one of those days that really solidifies why I run a music website. Hearing from all the bands and people involved in the label, via twitter, email, facebook, and in the thread -- it was a special day. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone that participated in it. Lots of stuff coming up today, so I've unstickied it - but the conversation is still going on.

Chances are, if you're over drinking age and you've been visiting this website for a while ... you're part of what I'm coining the Drive-Thru Records generation. For a large group of us - this label defined a good portion of our formative years. Reading over the past couple threads about the label showcases just what an attachment so many of us had with this label and their bands. This connection is part of the reason I think so many people are confused about just what the fuck happened to a label that seemed on top of their game. And there's obviously an emotional attachment to the music. These were the records that defined our lives. The albums that became the soundtracks to...

Earlier we posted about Drive Thru Records releasing new material from The Stellar Life. We reached out to Richard for a statement, and this is what we learned ...
Message from Richard"We (Richard and Stephanie) manage them and we/they wanted to release the single on DTR because we loved it and it reminds us of the heyday of our label. This isn't even close to their best song either- we are saving those for their CD! They might release the CD on their own, we might do it with them on DTR (It would be the first release in almost 4 years) but it would be a 50/50 deal and not a signing like we used to do. We want them to have total freedom and 100% creative control. So basically,...

The Future of DTRhey, lots of rumors flying around, so better to hear from us than anyone else. yes, there have been some changes and lay offs at dtr. shouldn't come as a big surprise considering every label on the planet is making lay offs. we were actually one of the LAST to do so. the economy is screwed across the board. our bands can barely even afford to tour anymore because of gas prices! so many people have been laid off in every industry and job, it's truly a sad situation.

At The Sleeping tour stop in Chicago, I Am The Avalanche played two new songs; one of them was called "What Happened To The Brooklyn Dodgers?". After the show, I spoke with Vinnie and he said that the two new songs will be on the band's forthcoming album and that "Dodgers" will be online soon after they record the demo again.
