In a recent post by Hawthorne Heights, a new tour is coming this fall. Here is the post:

Hey Lovers and Haters! We just wanted to drop you all a line, and officially announce our winter tour. Or WINTOUR… We, Hawthorne Heights, would like to welcome Escape The Fate, Amber Pacific, The AKA’s, and The Secret Handshake to the stage with us in November and December. If you are thinking…”That’s a weird line-up for a tour,” you are exactly right. We wanted a line-up that is not full of 5 bands that sound exactly the same. So at this tour, there is something for everyone…we hope.

We always like to help out other bands who we are friends with, or who we generally like to listen to…so that is how this line-up came together. We are planning alot of special things for this tour, so we would appreciate it if everyone could come and have fun, and keep music positive. Be on the lookout for more tour dates and details in the coming days. Thanks for your support of our band, the other bands, and music in general.

Love JT and Hawthorne Heights

No details have been released on a new record or what label they are with, if any…

Lead singer, Patrick Stump, of Fall Out Boy recently spoke with Billboard.com in regards to a possible new album. Infinity On High is nearly 9 months old and is already platinum, but Patrick said they have “an album worth of material”, but don’t expect a fifth album any time too soon. Stump continued to say “I don’t really feel like we’re done with this one yet, I feel like it’s still in its cycle. There’s a lot of songs on it I’m really proud of. I don’t think we have one really monster hit on this record like “Sugar,” but there are a lot of really strong individual songs. If a song is effective enough it’ll work as a single, and I think we have a lot of effective songs that aren’t necessarily monsters.”

In regards to the new material, Stump says the music is taking them in “some very different directions. There’s lots of really bizarre ideas on there, everything from folk to … actually, I was experimenting with piano phases, like Steve Reich, the composer. There’ll be some weird stuff, but at the end of the day, it’s probably just gonna be a pop record.” Even though they have new material, he also stated “There’s always something that hits me, like a sense of urgency — NOW is the time for an album — and we’re not there yet, I just get this kind of wanderlust of some kind to go back into a studio. It’s always a very defined point.”

Fall Out Boy has recently started touring with Cute Is What We Aim For, Plain White T’s and Gym Class Heroes on the Young Wild Things tour. Patrick Stump has kept busy lately, helping produce Cobra Starship‘s new album as well as working with Gym Class Heroes on their upcoming album. Outside of music he also recently filmed an episode of Law & Order, due to air in February 2008.

Against Me! has posted video montages of ?Americans Abroad? and ?Stop!? on their Youtube channel. These montages highlight footage from the Against Me!?s trips on the road and a camaraderie that can only be formed through a common passion for music. Against Me! teamed up with renowned producer Butch Vig to create a new album full of angst, anarchy and controversial political views, not to mention some insanely talented melodies. Against Me! is getting ready for their headlining tour through the US starting in November.

Against Me!?s new album New Wave is available in stores now.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Gym Class Heroes Clothes Off!

Nine years ago today UK newspaper the Daily Star ran a story claiming that R.E.M singer Michael Stipe had admitted that he was gay during an MTV interview shown in the US. Stipe was voicing his disgust at the killing of a young gay student in the US.

What is a Daily Dose?

The Audition have recently finished up their second full-length album, El Champion. The album will be a follow-up to their 2005’s debut Controversy Loves Company. The album will feature 10 new tracks. Drummer Ryan O’Connor says “This album is more sexual, it’s a big change of pace, and I’d say it has a lot more soul too it too. Every song is a little bit different but it’s weird because they all fit together and it flows well.” He continue to add, “We wrote an album that we really love and we really believe in and there’s not a song on the record that we don’t like. We really feel like we’ve put everything into this and this is the best that we’ve done yet. We think people are really gonna enjoy it.” The Chicago based band recorded the album in a studio in Windsor, New York. El Champion is to be released at the end of January 2008 on Victory Records. Make sure to catch them on tour to get a glimpse into their new songs.

The Sounds Of Animals Fighting have stated that they will be recording a third album under Epitaph records.

Here is a recent post:

After one album, a reissue of our first EP, and a live DVD (three very special releases to us), we bring you the latest newsflash: our third album will be released on the pioneering and long-established Epitaph Records. We were extremely blessed to have had the opportunities provided for us by Equal Vision Records for the aforementioned releases, and could not have been happier there. The label and staff remain friends, and we will continue to work closely with them to make sure our merchandise is available to all of you. This third record coming out on Epitaph simply gives us a chance to reach new channels and new faces, which, ultimately, will work in everyone’s favor, as you and we continue to grow, while simultaneously maintaining the independent ethics so important to us. Thank you for your ongoing support, and, as always, believe nothing you hear unless it comes straight from us. We are excited for the ongoing future of this incredibly cathartic project.
