Tom DeLonge Leaves Blink-182…No…Wait…Yes… (UPDATED)

66593_161056107250070_4848453_nSo if you are a music lover or in the music industry, the last 48 hours have been really confusing. First you wake up hearing lead guitarist and co-lead singer of Blink-182, Tom DeLonge, has left the band indefinitely or that he quit outright. A few hours later it’s now a joke? His bandmates didn’t discuss it with him? Journalists messed up really badly? The point is, we have no idea what is happening.

After the jump you can find most of the articles (the lines that pertain) and a few ideas that fans have about what may be going on. Feel free to write your thoughts on this very bizarre day in the comment section bellow. We look forward to hearing from you!

UPDATE #18: You thought we were done with this, didn’t you, well so did I, but Delonge opened his mouth again, so here we are. In a recent interview with Billboard (as taken from an Alt Press article) Delonge said he would not be opposed to rejoining Blink-182….I’m just going to say what we are all thinking: Are you f***ing kidding me????

Father MountainHot off the heels of a signing with Boston based Antique Records, Father Mountain have premiered a new song titled “Jamais Vu” on ModernVinyl. The track is an acoustic tale of vocalist Zane Martin’s “pleading to myself to make up my mind and move on”, the remnants of a broken relationship lay to rest in this track.

TOUR DIARY: Approaching Troy – Part 2

Approaching TroyPart 2: Home Away From Home

After the first leg of our nationwide tour, we jumped onto our friends in A Crowd Like You’s Ride Or Die tour and headed west with them; starting in our hometown of Long Island, we nearly sold out Amityville Music Hall.

Directly after that incredible Amityville show, we set out to Ohio and within a day (and with reality already settling in) we found ourselves very, very far from home. Yet we eventually were made to feel remarkably at home after playing Frankie’s Inner City in Toledo OH, which several locals made it known to us that it was, “the most fun we’ve had in a while”. We then headed out west. After playing three insane shows across Michigan with our new friends in Lights Out Paris and hitting up Bier Stube in Illinois, we had one of our most successful performances which took place at the Moxi Theater in Colorado.

After a quick pit stop in Las Vegas for a night, we headed off to California to finish up our tour. Santa Ana would prove to be one of the highlights of the tour but by now we were showing signs of being home sick and missing our friends and family back in Long Island, NY. I guess the reality that “good things must come to an end” is finally hitting us and this journey across America will all be a fantastic memory very soon. It’s comforting to know, however, that we will be keeping the promises we made and coming back to these places one day soon to visit and play for all the amazing friends we made along the way.

GUEST BLOG: Transitioning From Solo Artist To Full Band

Wells5Let’s put this in perspective: I’ve been playing solo for the better part of the last 13 years. I’ve spent nearly half of my life sitting in my room hacking away on an acoustic trying to make sense of the world around me. Playing solo wasn’t a necessity or the truthful living of the Frank Turner joke,  “a singer that lacks the friends to form a band…..the singer/songwriter.”  but it was a conscious choice that helped me collect my thoughts and experiment with my songwriting.

taylor smallLast night, perhaps in honor of the 2015 Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift released her latest music video from 1989, her sunny fifth single “Wildest Dreams.”

Taking on a wilderness theme, the video is a sort of safari romance that one-ups Katy Perry’s own jungle video for 2013’s “Roar.” And, much to the shock of  dedicated Swifties, Swift debuted new brunette locks, instead of her signature blonde hairdos. You can see the video below the jump.

STREAM: Kyle Fasel Releases Spoken Word Poem “sadness is the lock”

kyle faselKyle Fasel has been working on his own solo spoken word project for some time now. Although known mostly for his sad and relateable songwriting and bass skills for Illinois pop punk band, Real Friends, Fasel also has a knack for writing spoken word poetry.

In his latest poem, titled “sadness is the lock,” Fasel talks about how easy it is to focus on sadness, while ignoring happiness.

“Don’t keep looking at the ground when the sky is right above you,” Fasel says. “You’re the one keeping that chin down. Don’t keep shutting the door when someone that cares about you is trying to open it. Your sadness is literally the lock on the door and happiness is the key,” he continues. The poem is layered over a soft acoustic melody so create a soft and comforting sound. Check out the poem below the jump and let us know what you think of it in the comments section.
