Welcome to PropertyOfZack: Weekender edition. Every weekend, we bring you some of biggest and most interesting pieces of the past week from our own content to stories or breaking news. If you’ve had a busy week and want to catch up with some light reading, we hope this is for you.
Is There A Solution For Unknown Bands On Warped Tour?
A good question was raised. We go to Warped Tour for all the bands we know about and love, and then maybe some we’re hoping to check out. A good example this year would be that a fan is really excited to watch Four Year Strong, and has heard about State Champs and will watch them live for the first time.
But what about all of the other bands on the lineup that most festival goers have never heard of? Not that metalcore band you don’t like, or that pop rock band you grew out of three years ago, but what about the rest?
Angels & Airwaves Took A Different Turn After blink Reunited
Most “evidence” of late has shown that Tom perhaps isn’t wanting to be in blink-182, or that his attention is too much on Angels & Airwaves and not enough on blink. Atom Willard, former drummer of AVA, recently stated however that the band took a big shift following DeLonge’s rejoining of the band.
Apple Reportedly Near Deal To Acquire Beats
Dr. Dre seemed to confirm the news by screaming into a drunk video that he is the first ever rapper to become a billionaire.
5SOS Won’t Mainstream-ify Pop-Punk…But Someone Will
5 Seconds Of Summer, despite what their band members say, is a boy band. Look at their Twitter background photo. They are a boy band. They spent most of last year touring with One Direction and releasing pop songs like the very, very stupid song “She Looks So Perfect,” which seems to be the single behind much of their rapidly growing pubescent fanbase. The track has guitars, like Crane says, and wow! it has guitars!, but it also has the line “You look so perfect standing there / In my American Apparel underwear,” in the fucking chorus. Does that count as product placement? - Thomas Nassiff
Tay Jardine On Being Nominated For “Hottest Female”
To be honest though, I’m much more proud of being nominated for the work my friends and I have done, which is why I’m really excited that we’re being recognized for our single as well. We worked very hard on “The Best Thing (That Never Happened) and I lost my breath when I found out our fans in the UK felt it was worth winning an award. THAT means everything to me, thank you so much for believing in us and for the nominations, you should feel as proud as we do because you’re ALL a part of what WATIC and I accomplish. - Tay Jardine

Will they sign or will they stay independent?
