Morning Recap: Coachella Lineup, The Mars Volta Break Up, Rocketown Employee Speaks

by Zack Zarrillo - Jan 25, 2013


Coachella Announces 2013 Lineup

The Postal Service, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pheonix, and many more. What do you think of this year’s lineup? Will there be another hologram experiment?

The Mars Volta Call It Quits

The band had been incredibly quiet since the release of their new album last year, but Cedric Bixler-Zavala finally decided to rip the bandaids off for fans.

Rocketown Terminated Employee Posts Statement

Wes Breedwell, the terminated Rocketown Employee, has spoken out for the first time since the controversy occurred. It looks like Breedwell will not be doing any additional press and has no interest on causing more excitement on the web. 

New Found Glory ‘Icon’ Greatest Hits Release Coming?

If this is real, it reeks of a release that the band had absolutely no idea about, like most of Victory Records’ vinyl pressings. It’s also confusing considering the band released a greatest hits LP in 2008 called Hits

Josh Farro Promises Novel American News

Doesn’t the timing seem a little weird? Farro probably could have waited for more than three days following the release of the new single from Paramore’s first album without him, but that’s how the world works. We’ve seen no music from Josh Farro since brand new eyes, unlike Zac Farro who released an ambient solo EP, so it’ll be interesting to see the direction this takes. 

Moving Mountains Begin Mixing New Album

This is good news for fans who had started wondering where the band’s new album went, but it’s almost here. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a spring release via Triple Crown Records. 

Carson Frontwoman Going To Hollywood On ‘American Idol’

And another scene girl attempts to make it where she couldn’t be for. In all seriousness though, every contestant on The Voice, and now American Idol, from our little genre have had incredible voices regardless of their musical outputs. Good luck to Taisha.

The Dear Hunter Announce New Album ‘Migrant’

There seems to be a strange of excitement and confusion from fans of The Dear Hunter. This is now two releases in a row without an Act, but what’s equally odd is that there’s no indication of Migrant being a concept album like The Color Spectrum was. 

Run For Cover Announces 7 Splits For 7” Subscription Series

Run For Cover announced seven 7”s in one day. What could be better than that?

Morning Recap: Max Bemis Comic Book, BVB Sell 40K, FTHC LP, SF Spring Tour, Carson On ‘Idol’

by Zack Zarrillo - Jan 17, 2013

Max Bemis Writing Comic Book; EP Soundtrack To Accompany Series

This sounds like it will be a Say Anything fan’s wildest dreams come true. If you click through, you’ll read details from Bemis about Polarity and about how it mirrors his own bipolar disease. We of course have no idea if Max can actually pull off writing a great comic, but fingers crossed!

Black Veil Brides Debut Top 10 On Billboard Charts

They sold a hell of a lot of records. If you were truly surprised, you haven’t been paying attention (but you can’t be blamed for that with this band). PropertyOfZack doesn’t cover this band, but it’s interesting to see what a goth/metal/”emo”-looking band can still do on the Billboard charts. Someone on Twitter pointed out that music like this (see: My Chemical Romance) will always sell well. We’ll see. 

Frank Turner Announces New Record

UK fans, be excited. US fans, don’t get stoked just yet. Frank Turner’s new album will be coming out this spring, but a US release date and label is missing. Could it be possible that Turner has left Epitaph Records and signed with a major? It would make sense when you step back and realize Epitaph put out a compilation record this past fall with Turner’s songs on their catalog. There’s no confirmation either way yet, but one has to be coming soon.

Senses Fail Tour With Such Gold, Real Friends; Releasing Covers EP

Buddy Nielsen is one of the smartest guys in this side of the industry, and the package he put together for Senses Fail’s spring tour in addition to the presale model the band is using only further proves that. The new Senses Fail record is the band’s hardest release to date, but why not take out three pop-punk bands with a younger and growing fan base? It’ll be a successful tour and a good business move. And watch for Real Friends to blow every opener out of the water.  

Simple Plan To Write New Album This Fall

If you’re from the US, you probably think that Simple Plan is all but a dead band. They’ve however never seen so much success internationally. It’ll be interesting to see what they do on their next record to attempt to come back in a bigger way in the States, if it’s still a market the band cares about.

Carson Frontwoman To Be On ‘American Idol’?

I’ve always been curious about why we’ve seen four frontmen/women try out for The Voice, but have never seen one try out for American Idol. Carson is a very small band compared to Meg And Dia, Automatic Loveletter, Artist Vs Poet, and Hey Monday, but she certainly has a good chance of getting somewhere.

Carson, Paramore Song Controversy Cleared Up

by Zack Zarrillo - Jun 26, 2012

Carson released a song earlier this year called “No Sleep November.” Since then, several individuals on the Internet have ripped the song, changed its name to “No Sleep December,” and have credited it as an unreleased Paramore single. Carson has confirmed to PropertyOfZack that the song making its way around the Internet known as “No Sleep December” is first and foremost a Carson song under an altered name and that the band had no hand in the change and do not want to further confuse fans of either band. You can listen to Carson’s song below, as well as check out a video for the “Paramore track,” which is actually just the same song by Carson.

The band will be back with King to track the new material in late January.
