What can you expect with the new Rival Schools 'Pedals' album? "The songs on Pedals are aggressive heart-pounders, grounded with pure moments of melodic genius, that will please long time fans and hopefully convert the shit storm happening throughout rock and roll today."

The Teen Fortress album, called Learning (Everything Has To End For Some Reason I Don’t Believe It), is available as a free download at http://teenfortress.bandcamp.com.
Yes, they are French. But what I want to know is, are they really?? I mean, I have never seen people try to look and talk more French in my life. It almost seems as though they are the exact version of French that a bunch of drunk people would cook up around last call in a costume shop/bar (which is a bar I would like to go to by the way).
With a new album entitled Buzzards, Margot and the Nuclear So and So's are quite busy, but that didn’t stop them from putting on an amazing show Friday night at the Crowbar in Tampa Florida.

They've now released a 6-song EP "Bermuda Triangle," and we got the title track for your downloading pleasure:
The Appleseed Cast has had tremendous longevity over the years. The band is working on album number eight and is also looking to release some new 7”s in the near future. Recently the band embarked on a 50 date tour playing Low Level Owl Vol. I-II in its entirety at each show. I talked to guitarist Aaron about the tour, new music, and much more.
