Headlines

A few weeks ago we announced that folk rock icon Jennifer Knapp has resurfaced after three years of seemingly self imposed exile.

Paramore‘s first album, All We Know Is Falling, was certified Gold this last week with over 50,000 units sold. Congrats kids!

Apparently, pop rock band Kids In The Way are getting back together. Don’t believe me? Read the blog Run Kid Run just posted.

Dance rock band Queen’s Club has signed on with Tooth & Nail Records. Interesting
selection for sure…

Following the Insyderz‘s footsteps, both Five Iron Frenzy and The OC Supertones have eluded through various contacts that reunions and DVDs in the near future…

Long time Yours For Mine member Jonathan has decided to leave the band.

New Zealand moshcore band Saving Grace has signed with Strike First Records.  Congrats to all involved….

An interview with Micah from Oh, Sleeper was posted over at Lambgoat.com. Take my advice though, read the interview with Oh, Sleeper, but do NOT read the comments anywhere on that website. Lambgoat has got some borderline sociopaths for readers.

A cool little interview with Bradley Hathaway was posted over at Blue Indian. Read Bradley Hathaway interview.
