Shai Hulud have announced some new US tour dates, with a few stops in Canada. You can find them below.
Alex Melton has done a cover of Blink-182’s “Bored to Death” where he tries to emulate what it would sound like with Tom DeLonge doing vocals as well. Gotta say, as a long impersonator of Tom voice, this is pretty damn impressive.
I was curious to know what the new Blink-182 single would sound like if Tom was still in the band, so I recorded a version doing my best Mark and Tom impressions, and just trying to get a passable attempt at Travis’s ridiculous drum parts.
SoundCloud was having some issues with their RSS feeds updating over the weekend. That means last week’s podcast may not have been sent out to everyone, so, make sure you do a refresh if you don’t see it.
We’ll be recording a new episode this week, hit us up with any questions or topics you may want us to cover using #askEncore on Twitter or in any of the Encore threads in our forum.

The world has been interviewing Blink-182 over the past week (the label’s mad at me for posting that the video went up on YouTube, so I’m probably s.o.l), the latest is from Forbes, discussing the new beginning for the band and giving a little more detail on some of the new songs:
Well songs like “Rabbit Hole,” that have this big anthemic gang vocal at the end of it. There’s a song called “No Future,” there are a lot of really energetic, anthemic, angst-y fun rock songs I can’t wait to play live. This album is really rich with sing-along melodies and sing-along choruses. When I go to a show I want to sing along with the band. I still have that energy of going to see Bad Religion at the Palladium and wanting to sing every single word and I think this album has a lot of that for people.
