blink-182's 7” split with Swindle for Lemmings is available via ShopRadioCast. This is a reissue of the original 1996 7”.
Okay, so I might be jumping the gun a little bit here, but according to this interview with LasVegasSun, Travis Barker plans on releasing a second solo album, blink-182's new album, an EP with Hopsin, a new Transplants record, and a cover album.
It appears as though our bearded wonders in Four Year Strong are back in the studio. What are they up to?
Forever Came Calling are easily one of the best, most sincere, talented, hardworking guys in this scene. A couple years ago, they came out with their debut album, Contender, which was one of our top picks for 2012. They’re following it up with an, dare I say it, even better sophomore release, titled What Matters Most.
They are currently streaming the new album on AbsolutePunk.net. Check it out, and it officially gets released tomorrow (10/21/14) via Pure Noise Records. Make sure you pick this up.
Speech Patterns are a band from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. They’re this really cool blend of punk rock and pop punk that I hear a lot of bands try, but not a lot of them succeed at. Speech Patterns not only succeeds at what they’re trying to do, they do it with ease and with such talent that I don’t quite understand how they’re not a lot bigger than they are currently.
They currently have an EP available on their Bandcamp, and I’d highly suggest you pick it up, as you’ll be hooked on this band if you know anything about anything in the world.

Maybe it’s time to get our hopes up. Holding true to what Mark Hoppus said earlier this year, blink will head into the studio to begin their first big writing session in a few weeks. This was all but confirmed by Tom DeLonge, who recently spoke with Wondering Sound:
Also heard that there’s a new Blink-182 album in the works. What’s the timeline for that looking like?
I am hoping that we can get this thing out by summer, but we will see.
Have you started recording yet?
We actually have our very first big writing session coming here in the next few weeks where we’ll get together and lay down our first tracks.
Man Overboard will be playing three in-store acoustic sessions in support of their new EP, Passing Ends, out October 28th. Click Read More to check out the dates.
Modern Ghost are a pop-rock/punk band hailing from Montreal, QC, Canada. Their songs are the type where you just want to jump up and down, and sing along at the top of your lungs. They have a great balance in their music, and it isn’t the obnoxious sort of pop-rock that makes your head hurt. Anyway, make sure you give them a listen, cause you just might catch yourself singing their songs afterwards.
Currently, the band have a pair of EPs out, titled Yours, Completely and Yours, Regrettably. Stream those on their SoundCloud profile, and purchase it on iTunes.
