Steve Soboslai admits that he's pretentious. As if fronting Punchline wasn't enough, he also releases his own music under the name Blue of Colors.

Anthony Raneri of Bayside and Steve Soboslai of Punchline recently wrapped a brief tour together, and I captured the final date at T.T. the Bear's Place in Cambridge, MA on April 29 for our Live Sessions. Head to the replies to watch full acoustic sets from each musician.
Punchline bassist Chris Fafalios has released a follow-up statement regarding his ultimatum that he would leave the band if their new EP didn't reach #1 on iTunes. Watch it in the replies. Spoiler alert: he's here to stay!

Punchline are so delightfully pleased with the response to their new EP, So Nice To Meet You, that they are giving it away to AP.net readers. The first 37 people to e-mail TDR Records will receive a free copy. Don't forget to tune into Mobbed tonight on Fox to see the band!
The Punchline album hit #1 on the "rock charts" and has climbed as high as #7 on the overall charts. They're still aiming for #1 overall though, so ... figured I'd make another post about grabbing it here. Doing what we can to help.
