Midtown's classic Forget What You Know was released ten years ago today.
Zac Djamoos on 06/29/14 - 10:16 AM
Midtown have restocked their online merch store.

Hit the replies to check out my write up on day two of this year's Skate and Surf festival.

Sorry it's a bit late, but if you hit the replies, you can read my review of day one of this year's Skate and Surf festival. Check back tomorrow to read my review of day two.
Zac Djamoos on 05/22/14 - 03:18 PM
Hit the replies to see Midtown perform "Just Rock and Roll" at this past weekend's Skate and Surf Festival. It was the band's final song of their set -- I hope it's not the last time we see them play together.
Jason Tate on 05/20/14 - 10:55 AM
Not lucky enough to catch Midtown in concert last night? Yeah, me either. However, if you check the replies you'll find the set-list and we can all pretend together like we were there.

On June 24th, 2014, I Surrender will be releasing Midtown's Forget What You Know on vinyl for the first time ever 10 years after it was originally released. The record is a double LP packaged in a double gatefold jacket. It's limited to 1000 copies and pressed on 500 white and 500 half clear/half translucent green vinyl. A limited amount of white copies will be going up for pre-sale in the webstore starting tomorrow at 10:30am EST.

It's on Wednesday, May 14, at the Knitting Factory. May the odds be ever in your favor.

Amazon is listing a Midtown Forget What You Know vinyl release for May 27th.

The Gunz Show sat down with John D., the creator of Skate and Surf, to discuss this yearís lineup as well as the history of the Festival. John explained how he secured a Midtown reunion, what went wrong last year, and hints at more acts to be added. He also touches base on how the venue will be set up and another upcoming tour he has planned. You can listen to it here.
Christian Wagner on 02/20/14 - 08:13 AM
Skate and Surf has announced the majority of their lineup for their two day festival. Besides Midtown reuniting, there's Saosin with original vocalist Anthony Green, Hidden In Plain View, The Early November and more. You can find the whole lineup of bands in the replies.
Keagan Ilvonen on 02/17/14 - 08:53 AM
Midtown have reunited to play Skate and Surf. Possibly more shows to be announced in the future.
Keagan Ilvonen on 02/17/14 - 08:40 AM
Could Midtown be teasing something? Does this mean anything? Skate and Surf, perhaps?
Zac Djamoos on 02/14/14 - 03:13 PM
On last night's edition of The Gunz Show, Gunz talked with John D. of the Skate & Surf Festival, in which he discusses Bamboozle, Midtown, and more.
Every year I try to convince Midtown. In my perfect world this yearís headliners would have been Fall Out Boy and Midtown. Iím going to get them Ė I think it will be next year or 2015. Every year I go after them first and then Jay-Z, and as soon as they say no I know that itís a normal year. Midtown know when the right time will be. It has to be a mutual thing.
Jake Denning on 02/25/13 - 01:23 PM
You can purchase Midtown's Save the World Lose the Girl on vinyl here.
Drew Beringer on 12/06/12 - 10:30 AM
After making a snarky comment (is there anything else from me?) on my instagram account to Rob Hitt (Midtown) about buying the vinyl that were announced yesterday, Rob responded that neither the band nor Drive-Thru know exactly how this is happening and that they're looking into this pressing. We'll keep you updated when we hear more.
Jason Tate on 10/03/12 - 03:35 PM
Hot Topic will be exclusively releasing Midtown's Living Well Is The Best Revenge and Save The World, Lose The Girl on vinyl this November. Man, it's been a while since we've used that news icon.
Drew Beringer on 10/02/12 - 02:45 PM
Midtown's Forget What You Know is 8 years old today. Discuss this in the replies.

Is Pete Wentz hinting at a Midtown reunion? Maybe, maybe not.
Alex DiVincenzo on 04/18/11 - 01:27 PM
An extremely rare vinyl test pressing of Midtown's Save The World, Lose The Girl has been posted on ebay. It's only one of five made so you might want to keep an eye on this.
Keagan Ilvonen on 08/12/10 - 10:44 PM
Six years ago today, Forget What You Know was released. Fast forward to this day in time, Gabe Saporta has been named the sexiest male vegetarian by peta2.
Keagan Ilvonen on 06/29/10 - 04:28 PM
Midtown are not reuniting for Skate and Surf Festival. Don't believe sites that post dated articles that are meant to be an April Fool's joke.
Keagan Ilvonen on 05/05/10 - 04:28 PM
Streaming in entirety at the Humble Beginnings AP.net Profile is the Overanalyzing the Manifestations of the Unconscious EP (released by Eyeball Records in 1998). These snotty New Jersey pop-punks included a blossoming rockstar named Gabe Saporta, and it's here that you can hear what it sounded like at step one. Head to the replies for commentary from Eyeball owner Alex Saavedra.
Julia Conny on 02/18/10 - 06:43 PM
Tyler Rann (Band of Thieves) is selling his old amp he used in Midtown. More information can be found in the replies.

You can now buy Heath Saraceno's jacket that he wore on the cover for Midtown's Save the World, Lose the Girl on eBay. It is autographed and will make a great gift for you or a favorite AP.net staff member.

Cobra Starship fans and Midtown reunion hopefuls have created an online petition for Gabe Saporta encouraging him to postpone the current Sassyback tour in order for him to concentrate on his vocal health.
Anton Djamoos on 11/05/08 - 12:06 PM
Band of Thieves (Tyler from Midtown's new band) have posted three new songs from their recently completed album on myspace.
Anton Djamoos on 09/30/08 - 02:24 PM
Gabe Saporta (Cobra Starship, Midtown) has a cyst on his right vocal cord, according to his Twitter account. Best wishes, Mr. Saporta!

Check the replies for a video with a clip of an unheard Midtown song. Oh dear. The band's myspace has been completely altered as well.
Anton Djamoos on 08/21/08 - 03:53 PM
Midtown have posted a myspace bulletin, which you can read below. Hmm...look familiar?
BulletinSubject: what if this is all over for us? - will they be okay?
Body: -is this the end or just the beginning?

Anton Djamoos on 05/16/08 - 07:29 AM
At last night's All Time Low/Cobra Starship show in Glasgow, UK, Gabe came out and played on bass with All Time Low for Midtown's "Get It Together". Rumor has it that Gabetown Low (Gabe + Midtown + All Time Low...stick with me, folks) will be playing a four-song set tonight.
Anton Djamoos on 05/15/08 - 06:56 AM
On the Midtown for Bamboozle myspace, (presumably) Gabe from Cobra Starship has posted a tantalizing comment.
Commentdont be sad... you never know what the stars may hold

First we heard about Natalie Portman going to a Band of Thieves show, but now Papi Fernandez is reporting that she and I Surrender owner/Midtown alum Rob Hitt are dating.
GossipAccording to the Jewish News, Natalie Portman and Rob Hitt were seen attending Passover services together at Temple Shalom. Portman is currently in the middle of a film and Rob could not be reached for comment. However, a source close to Portman says that thereís a mysterious straightening iron thatís been showing up in her bedroom lately. Scandalous!
Rob Hitt romantically linked with Natalie Portman. Couple seen together entering Temple Shalom for Jewish New Year Services.

On The Gunz Show, Gabe Saporta (Midtown, Cobra Starship) spoke about the reunion of Midtown and said that it wouldn't be at Bamboozle, but rather, a more intimate setting. Though nothing is confirmed yet for time or place, the members have spoken about it, and all agree that they want to play one last show for the Midtown fans within the next few months.
