blink-182 Recording New Music Has Been “Kind Of A Challenge”

blink-excitement seemed to be at an all time high this past fall. If you had the option to buy 182 stock, any time between September and December would have been the right move. Big festivals were contrasted with the small rooms. An anniversary was met with five sold out residency Untitled shows in California. A new full-length was talked about openly with promised studio dates by the end of February. What more could you have asked for?

January and February came and went and blink-182 did not announce that they were in the studio. Now, in a new interview, Travis Barker confirmed the band members couldn’t figure out how to all schedule being in the same studio together for an extended period of time, which means recording has been pushed back indefinitely. There will be no new blink music by the summer as promised, most likely. There will likely be no new blink-182 music in 2014.

Yellowcard Sign To Razor & Tie Records; Releasing Album This Fall

Didn’t see that one coming, did you?

What Yellowcard and Hopeless Records did together in 2011 was, and still is, extraordinary. The end cycle for Paper Walls saw the band quickly fading away, and Yellowcard rightfully went on a break. Since then, Yellowcard have been the largest they’ve ever been following the pinnacle of success that Ocean Avenue brought on. Sure, having a number one hit is everything, but having a steady career playing 2,000 cap rooms is nothing to complain about. It’s something to write home about.

When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes and Southern Air were both successful as were their respective touring cycles. So, why leave Hopeless? Sure, another label may have been able to bring Yellowcard back like Hopeless did, but also maybe not.

What does Razor & Tie do for Yellowcard that their current label wasn’t? Most people we’ve spoken to don’t seem to know.

The Ready Set Signs To R&T; Announces ‘The Bad & The Better’

Ah, the return. The Ready Set has moved on to Razor & Tie following several years in limbo dealing with a major label and a “failed” follow-up to a major radio single success. Razor & Tie seems like a good fit for the band, considering the popier side of label, but it’s hard to know what you’re getting with Razor & Tie, which is why the move seems questionable for Yellowcard as well (see above).

Saves The Day, Kevin Devine, Hit The Lights, and Such Gold all had generally underwhelming cycles with the label. Which one of these two bands will be follow suit?

Thrice Likely To Tour, Record New Music

That’s a surprise. Thrice may be coming back even sooner than fans were expecting. Dustin Kensrue, the man who calls the end-hiatus shots, seems to be getting ready to be willing to do another Thrice tour, and maybe even another Thrice record, in the not too distant future.
