Patrick Stump took to Twitter yesterday to absolutely tear apart a manager by the name of Shane Morris. It wasn’t clear who Shane was at first, but it appears that he is the manager of Ryan Ross (ex-P!ATD) and several others.
It should be noted that Morris sent an email to POZ with his panties in a bunch once we posted who he was…with information that came directly from his website.
This statement is not sitting well with fans or people interested in the story. The band apparently has no knowledge of the situation besides what the media has reported.
The Greatest Generation is now streaming a few days early of its May 14th release date, so make sure to check it out. The Wonder Years have also posted a message urging fans to support their new music if it is at all possible.
Touché have officially hit the studio with Brad Wood (Say Anything, Sunny Day Real Estate, mewithoutYou). The band will be releasing their third album in the fall via Deathwish.
Ballsy move by any band to cover Brand New, especially the band’s most well-known song. What are your thoughts?
Things aren’t too looking good in terms of the pre-order/solo record situation. The good news is that Victory Records just launched a new merch store, so if you want to give them more money, you know where to go!
Geoff Rickly recently took part in a major feature to dissect and tell the full story of Thursday’s “Understanding In A Car Crash.” This is highly recommended for any Thursday fan.

It’s been confirmed for months, but we finally have more details on the ever-approaching monster of a split. Record Store Day 2013, see you there.
Ian Watkins has vehemently denied that he ever tried to rape a newborn child. The jury is still out on that one.
It should be noted that Hot Topic is not closing, and that those who own stocks of Hot Topic are actually going to get a nice payday from this buyout.
We’re not quite sure if this means Drew recognizes that his last few releases have alienated many of his fans, or if he’s simply doing this for himself.
The drummer left Motionless In White on what seem to be his own terms caused from over-touring and a life on the road.
Curious as to who The Summer Set think their new music is going to appeal to. Related: how many Half Moon Kids regret signing up now? - Jesse Richman
This is simply a terrible situation for the band to be one, and it’s incredibly unfortunate for all those involved. We Are The In Crowd’s fans seem to be generally understanding of Tay Jardine’s illness, but there must still be an unimaginable amount of stress upon the band during this period.
Brand New? They’re still alive, yeah.

A Day To Remember have been working on Common Courtesy for well over a year now, but it’s still not done. We’re curious to find out how much this may or may not have to do with their ongoing struggles with Victory Records.
Whether you’re a fan of a 2 Chainz cameo or not, you’ll be seeing more guest appearances on the new Fall Out Boy record. Hopefully some of those guests are from our scene, not just a top 40 world.
The boys are back in the studio with Zack and Kenneth to record their fourth album. We’re not sure how much the band will get done before their spring tour with All Time Low, but an October release is most likely for the band.
This is a great move for both parties. Sainthood’s Monoculture was one of the best releases of 2011, but they unfortunately did not get enough push from their label at the time. A new record on No Sleep should ensure great new music and even better touring opportunities.
The best part about this is that they did not approve Paul McCartney’s request for the same one-night switch .
