Brian from The Starting Line has started a new project called Legendary Divorce.

Mashable talks with some of the early 2000's "emo era" bands that helped bring the genre into the mainstream. You know, bands like The Early November, The Starting Line, and I Am The Avalanche.
For me, it was just what I happened to listen to. Pop music usually underwhelmed me, and true street punk music did not speak to me either. Pop punk felt just right. I could sing melodies that had emotion while still playing loud and fast.

Happy 30th Birthday to Kenny Vasoli!

Vacationer have posted a free "Ode 2 Summer Mixtape." Don't forget to also check out Kenny Vasoli's playlist he created for us.
We present the Ode 2 Summer mixtape. This collection, in a sense, is a sonic scrapbook. Many of the track titles are taken from areas we had passed through. As the summer came to an end, so did the process of making our new album. We offer up this tape in the meantime while we await the arrival of warmer weather and reflect on the past year. Hope you dig.

Here is a collection of tunes that encompass the journey my ears and mind have made through music. I did my best to sequence this playlist chronologically according to when in my life I obsessed over these artist/songs. It was an interesting...
