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

Tuesday was a great day on PropertyOfZack for news and content. Make sure you didn’t miss out on any of the goodness below!
- Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem went to bat for Dustin Kensrue of Thrice after facing criticism from fans over his religious choices.
- Crucial Dudes shocked their fans with a break up announcement just weeks before a summer tour was set.
- Many Paramore fans were sending around an “unreleased” song by the band that turned out to be a track originally recorded and released by Carson 6 months ago.
- Mayday Parade are recording a new cover song. Think it’s for Punk Goes?
- Green Day released the track listing for their first of three new albums. Are you more or less excited?
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.
PropertyOfZack is stoked to be premiering Carson’s new music video for “Resilience” off of their debut EP. The video was directed by The Dangerous Summer’s Cody Payne and Erik Rojas. Check out the video below and grab a free download of the track below by clicking “Read More.”
Carson have announced that they are gearing up to do pre-production with The Dangerous Summer frontman, AJ Perdomo, in early-2012 for a spring release. The new EP will follow Carson’s first release, a self-titled, 5-song EP recorded by producer Jamie King (He Is Legend, Between The Buried And Me). The band will be back with King to track the new material in late January.
