Kanye West - Reanimator is a reworking of H.P. Lovecraft's Herbert West - Reanimator, in which Kanye West brings Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac back to life. Written by Joshua Chaplinsky, the novella will be released on September 1. Don't miss the cover art in the replies.
A bizarre mix of Lovecraft and hip-hop history, Kanye West—Reanimator reimagines the classic story "Herbert West—Reanimator" with everyone's favorite petulant genius cast in the titular role. In it, Kanye West attempts to reanimate a moribund hip-hop scene, only to come to the conclusion that his music is so powerful, it should be used to reanimate the dead. And who better to reanimate than those two legendary...

The Daily Post is reporting that Neck Deep's Lloyd Roberts has gone to police and hired lawyers to "clear his name."
A guitarist from a Wrexham punk band who was accused of sending sex texts to a minor has contacted police and lawyers and vowed to clear his name. Lloyd Roberts, from Neck Deep, decided to step down from the band - whose most recent album charted in the Top 10 - after allegations were made last week. Today, he said he intended to fight the claims.

Tracey Wise, writing for Huffington Post:
In response to this event, I shared my story, The response I got from other women saying they had experienced similar illustrated I am not alone. From this, I established a Twitter account in order for women to share their stories, and highlight that what happened to me was not an isolated incident (it was also, sadly, not the first incident like this). My current hope is that directed measures will be coming to Camden soon, to try make gigs safer for women. Please contact me via Twitter for more information.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! are on this week's episode of "The Talkhouse."
“Transsexuals are the stormtroopers of the future.” So says Genesis P-Orridge, the iconic, visionary musician who has fronted influential bands like Psychic TV and Throbbing Gristle. While P-Orridge isn’t transgender — they* call themselves a pandrogyne — their partner in this Talkhouse Music Podcast, Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, came out as transgender in 2012. Still, as P-Orridge points out, both musicians have done something very brave: they’ve transitioned, in one way or another, in front of their audience. And it was P-Orridge who paved the way. As Grace says...

At the recent Pinelands Music Festival, we spoke with CRUISR about the pressures of writing songs, the future of rock music on the radio, and when we can expect to see a full-length album. You can find the full interview here.
That’s my opinion. Every song, whenever we work on songs I try to think, “Okay, you don’t have one song to speak for yourself at all. You don’t have anything. You don’t exist.” And then I make a song, and that’s going to be the song. I put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself. But hopefully we put an album out that speaks to that.

I've recently stumbled upon a really awesome new YouTube channel that popped up recently, 180 Drums.

Maryam Hassan, writing for Punktastic:
It’s also complicated because of the band/fan dynamic. If you read a lot of these stories, the women in them trust the band members. We are talking about teenage girls here, and I don’t want to generalise teenagers at all, but do you remember idolising a band when you were a kid? I know that if any of the bands I loved when I was 14/15 had been texting me I would have been super excited and knowing me, done most things they would have asked. You’re young, a little naive and you don’t expect people to use you for things. So to shout at them for going along with sending nudes, or having sex with men in bands isn’t right.

I've spent most of my life struggling with anxiety and depression, and after the last few months it's evident that it's time to put everything else aside to focus on making steps towards positive mental health.

I cannot believe this isn't a national holiday! Why are we at work?! Bruce Springsteen's legendary and influential breakthrough album, Born To Run, was released 40 years ago today. Our own Craig Manning wrote a neat 40-year retrospective about the perfect record (and I did my own retro review years ago, which isn't as good as Craig's, in a series where I reviewed all 16 of Springsteen's records at the time), and The Atlantic also has a long feature about the album. Please join me in celebrating this holy day in the replies. Additionally, if you've never listened to this album, I very highly encourage you to listen to the thing in its entirety today. "Thunder Road" is the best song of all...

"After working on six Yellowcard albums, I can honestly say that Ryan Key is a true talent," said Avron (producer and mixer of Linkin Park, Weezer, Aerosmith, Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard). "I have watched Ryan successfully hone his techniques as a songwriter and now producer. Armed with these skills, Ryan truly has an innate sense for what a song needs."

While Anthony and Staci have already given you their great photos from the Pinelands Music Festival, we thought we shouldn't just stop there. So over the next few days, we'll be bringing you some interviews from some of the best bands on the Pinelands lineup. First up, we have Philadelphia's PALMAS, who gave me one of the funniest interviews I've ever done. You can read the whole thing here.
We were putting out the EP, and we were playing at the Boot and Saddle, and it’s now October 10th, our EP release show. But it was originally scheduled for Pope Weekend. And actually, one of your contributors, Staci, she sent me a text and said, “I think you need to reschedule your show.”
