PropertyOfZack recently interviewed Ryan Rockwell of Mixtapes and confirmed that the band will be recording a new album this March. They also talked about a handful of bands within the scene. Read it all here.
POZ: More than guitar. Much more than you practice the guitar. Jason Tate would agree too.
Ryan: Does Jason Tate even know how to play guitar?
To answer the question: Jason Tate severed a tendon in his hand when he was like 6 or something (don't remember), and can't bend fingers correctly to play guitar. And while he was taught how to play by his dad, he cannot actually play very well without some left hand acrobatics. /Third person.

“I’ve just been studying this stuff and your mind doesn’t use all the power that it can. You could be across the street standing on the rooftop of that building and standing where we are right now, and you wouldn’t know it because your mind wouldn’t allow you to.”
Paramore’s new song? Last one.
Do I have to answer this?
POZ: You have to answer it, it’s the last one. Most important question.
Ryan: I listened to it once and I thought it sounded like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
POZ: Do you like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs?
I laughed so hard at this.
