This week's episode of Encore is almost as delicious as macaroni and cheese stuffed chicken wings. This week we look at if an early leak will hurt Adele, the idea of an "infinite" movie franchise, going to shows by yourself, what can impact the price of vinyl, if an artist contributing music to a political campaign bugs us, and the big topic: How would we "fix" Apple Music, the death of Rdio, and the retirement of the Zune. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream and/or downloaded this episode in the replies.

More than just opening acts, Stalking Gia and Scavenger Hunt brought electrifying performances to the Constellation Room on Wednesday night. With acts like that, they might as well be headlining their own tours. Take a peak at some of my favorite show highlights from the show in the replies!

New The Used guitarist, Justin Shekoski, has posted an Instagram about joining the band and leaving Saosin.
In light of this news, after years of writing and waiting to produce a new record, some of the members of Saosin have decided to end our 13 year relationship for questionable reasons. This was a shock to me. Even though all of this happened a few months ago, I’m still processing it. I’m sure I’ll discuss this in greater detail at a later time. One thing I can be sure of is that I could not and would not have done anything differently over the past years. The shows were some of the best we have ever played. It truly seemed as if everyone was happy and positivity was at an all-time...

TMZ is reporting Vanna is being sued after a fan was struck in the face by a guitar.
Eric says without warning a guitar flew through the air and struck him smack in the face. According to the lawsuit, Eric's nose was broken in 5 places. He also suffered lacerations to his face and a guitar string apparently punctured his nose, with a portion lodging inside it.

We created Apple Music to make finding the right music easier for everyone — men and women, young and old. Our new ad focuses on women, which is why I answered the way I did, but of course the same applies equally for men. I could have chosen my words better, and I apologize.

The Ghost Inside's management have posted an update to their Facebook about the serious bus crash we reported earlier today. They have confirmed that The Ghost Inside's hired bus driver, as well as the occupant (or occupants) of the semi-truck have passed away. All band members and other crew members are alive and currently being treated for their injuries. They have also announced that the remaining dates of their current Locals Only Tour have been cancelled. Our thoughts go out to the families and those who have lost loved ones, as well as to the band through this trying time.

Reports are coming in from KFMK that The Ghost Inside were involved in an accident in which their bus collided with a semi-truck. Tour manager for the The Wonder Years, Dave Summers, who has been in contact with the band, has stated that all band and crew are alive. There have been unconfirmed reports that two of the occupants of the semi-truck have passed away. We will continue to post information as we discover it. Our thoughts and well-wishes are with the band and everyone involved in this accident.

Since The Matches have (kinda) returned and graced us with new music, it only seems right that we get a music video too, right? While the band released a video a few weeks ago, we've got the group's directors cut version of their video for "Life of a Match." They've dropped the lyrics from the video and added a little tweak for good measure. So jump to the replies to check it out and take a stroll down the scene's memory lane.
