RCA Records will be releasing the new Ghostbusters soundtrack on July 15th. It will feature Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott, 5 Seconds of Summer, Walk the Moon, Wolf Alice and more. It looks like Fall Out Boy covered the theme song. The full press release is below.
Brand New’s second show from their tour was tonight and they’re really good about finding a way to make sure I post something about anything they say on stage. They are apparently, “not breaking up” they’re just “not playing music for anyone except themselves anymore.” So, RIP 2018 or something.

With me, Trey is not a rock star; he’s an articulate man in his early 30s, not only confronting his own sexuality and how it will affect his family, but also shedding part of a persona he’s been maintaining for almost two decades, on stage and off.
This is not a normal story. Trey and I decided to tell this story together, for him to come out not just to his family and a handful of friends, but to the masses—where he could become a model and mentor for thousands in his musical flock still searching for acceptance and clarity within their faith.
I made the mistake of reading the Facebook comments.
A Day To Remember have announced that their new album, Bad Vibrations, will be released on August 19th. A music video for the title track is now available on their website along with pre-orders for the album. The band is also gearing up to play the Kerrang! Awards in London and headlining the APMAs in Columbus before joining Blink-182 on their summer tour starting July 21st.
Colin Stutz, writing for Billboard, on the removal of lyrics from Spotify:
In a statement Spotify said, “We can confirm our partnership with Musixmatch is ending. It was a great partnership and there is mutual respect between both companies as our business strategies move us each in different directions.”
Musixmatch, meanwhile, has a bit more to say about the split, suggesting it did not come amicably.
Brand New started their tour last night in Canada. So, well, that means it’s time to recap what we know. We know they have new merch (the word is “abrahadabra” in Hebrew), and three new designs are up on their store (including a couple that say 2000-2018, so like bye bye Brand New, I guess they’re staying 18 forever). Oh, and the set list can be found below.
Over the past 12 months, as one of its primary proponents, I have spent a lot of time thinking about call-out culture. Or, as some industry heavyweights have phrased it, the trend of “witch hunts” that has been plaguing our scene as of late. I have spent a lot of time frustrated by the perpetuation of the idea that says the call-outs are the problem, instead of the abuses that said call-outs address. I’ve been upset because we know that statistically when an accusation is finally made, they are are overwhelmingly true; however, the opposite manages to live on in the minds of so many. It’s a problem, because as long as the focus is on whether or not call-out culture ought to exist, the real problems and abuses plaguing our scene fail to get properly addressed. As such, it’s a problem I want to solve.
