I'm very excited to share a brand new music video from one of my new favorite bands, Souvenirs. From the small hidden oceanside city of Carpinteria, Souvenirs have been quickly making a name for themselves all over Southern California since their conception in 2011, and they're officially joining the Other People Records family. Drawing influence from bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral, and Braid these boys have dug up this corpse of a genre and brought it back to life in their own unique way. This is your favorite band you haven't even heard of yet. Head to the replies to check out their video for "A Mile High", off their debut album You, Fear And Me out December 16th via...

Vice has gone to ask a plethora of musicians their stance on the whole stage diving fiasco that has been brought to light by Joyce Manor's recent incidents. There's commentary from Max Bemis, Laura Jane Grace, Chris Conely, Jack Antonoff and just about everyone else. For some users, I highly suggest you read this and get some insight to the way people feel the way they do.
Pretty soon, I'm going to need to get my front teeth replaced. Playing in punk bands since I was 14-years-old, I've accepted the fact that every so often, a stagediver is going to kick a microphone into my teeth. Two years ago, we were playing a show in North Carolina, we were two songs from the end of the set, and I...

This is the kind of story you can't make up. Kris Trindl aka 'Rain Man', one third and the only male DJ in the act Krewella has been kicked out for his new found sobriety. In return, Trindl has filed a 5 million dollar lawsuit against his former group.
The story of Krewella starts out like an American fable: Two sisters and one former boyfriend from a Chicago, Illinois suburb form a music group, and using some social media savvy, rocket to fame as headliners of popular EDM festivals worldwide. Unfortunately, now the trouble happens: Kris Trindl, a founding member, is suing sisters Jahan Yousaf and Yasmine Yousaf for at least $5 million for kicking him out of the group and for allegedly...

Yellowcard have teamed up with Invisible Children for their new music video for "One Bedroom" which you can find in the replies.
Today we're proud to present our new music video for "One Bedroom." We teamed up with Invisible Children to give a look at the reality of what life is like for people in central Africa who are still being terrorized by Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army.
Working with Invisible Children was an incredible experience. We have never had the opportunity to connect our music to something so much bigger than ourselves in such a direct way.
Together we can put an end to this unnecessary violence and bring back the women and children who are still held...

Following the controversy between the two bands earlier this month, Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek posted an explanation for his comments about The War On Drugs on his website. Now, Kozelek has challenged The War On Drugs to let him join them on stage at an upcoming show at the Fillmore on October 6th to perform a song he wrote called "War On Drugs: Suck My Cock/Sun Kil Moon: Go Fuck Yourself." You can't make this stuff up.
War On Drugs. Due to all of the fuss, I checked out your live track on Pitchfork, and I called it right. You sound like Don Henley meets John Cougar meets Dire Sraits meets "Born In The USA" era Bruce Springsteen. It's not a criticism, it's an observation.

I challenge...

Do you like piano!? Pop-bands like pianos. Spin has pointed out that the little piano melody used by One Direction at the start of their new song, the one that Hayley Williams from Paramore mentioned sounds a lot like New Found Glory's "It's Not Your Fault" (still an underrated album), also kinda sounds like Journey's awesome "Faithfully." Turns out: Pop bands do like pianos! Stream all three songs in the replies.

Story of the Year have posted an update on the future of the band.
We arenít kids anymore. We have wives, kids, house payments- real life shit. Every member of this band has questioned how much longer they can do this. Weíve left our families for months at a time, sometimes coming home with what would equate to minimum wage. Or less. Weíve spent the last 5 years clinging to that last bastion of hope that we would have that hit song that would connect at radio or become a viral sensation and catapult us back up the mountain. Weíve had our fingers crossed for years, (so have the wives), that each next tour or album would be the answers to all of our prayers. It didnít exactly work out that...

Out October 7 via Animal Style Records is Wolves At Bayís latest EP, When Iím Dead, and you can stream the release in its entirety in the replies. The band lists Thursday as an influence, and I think thatís a fair comparison ó they also take cues from the gruff vocal stylings of acts like Hot Water Music and Polar Bear Club, and generally walk the familiar ground of fiery, loud, intense music written by angry, angsty young people. Itís a cool EP, and you can preorder it digitally here and on cassette here.

Nominee are releasing their debut EP called I Woke Up on October 14th. Hit the replies to hear a brand new song off it called "Without You In Front of Me." Frontman Chris Mclelland previously played guitar for I Call Fives, and this sound leans toward the pop-punk realm as well. The guitars and vocals are nice and loud. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the EP, produced by Joseph Milligan and mixed by Paul Leavitt.

Track Listing:
1. Requiem
2. Cliffhanger
3. Without You In Front of Me
4. Suffer
5. Sandpaper
7. Converging Light and Matter
8. Wreckage

Come Wind have been working on a few new songs recently. We are premiering a live recording of a new one called "Not This." The live version has a different sound than their past material, learning more toward the softer side of bands like Manchester Orchestra. Give it a listen in the replies. The band has two more singles they will release later this year - one of which will be on their forthcoming album in 2015.
