Taking Back Sunday made music for driving. You were alone. You could scream. No one heard. It didn’t matter if you hit the notes, because the notes didn’t matter. It was what was behind them. The shameless emotion Adam Lazzara and John Nolan put on display through their vocals was everything you ever needed in your life. Everything you wanted. “And you will tell all your friends, you’ve got your gun to my head,” you would yell. “This all was only wishful thinking, this all was only wishful thinking.” You were upset about a girl. As you passed through the next light, taking another sip of your Mountain Dew, you thought that if you sang loud enough, she would hear you. She would hear you. She would change. She would change.
This is the best description of Taking Back Sunday that I have ever read. A really good piece from Noisey.

Sometime around 5 p.m. EST, one or several assholes decided to run a script to auto-vote for Saves The Day, which was clear and deliberate. After backroom conferences, where everything was at stake, TeamPOZ decided it would be best to not reward Saves The Day due to voters cheating, but to also not crown The World Is as this year’s Kings Of Emo, due to a fair fight being thrown.
There is no winner of March Sadness 2014.
We’ve used Google Forms over the past two years of voting so we can get around requiring voters to give us their email addresses and to strictly focus on the fun of the sad bracket, but it looks like we’ll have to reevaluate our methods for 2014.
have never listened to them but i just watched their video statement about not being able to use their logo anymore because a mexican telecommunications company trademarked it before they could. that is fucking wild. - derrick
Frontman AJ Perdomo is leaving The Dangerous Summer to become a father and also due to no longer being able to deal with guitarist Cody Payne. It is unclear what will happen to the band in the future. Read a message from Perdomo below after the jump.
Things suddenly don’t look so good for new music from blink-182 in the near future. The band was already supposed to be recording their new album and follow-up to Dogs Eating Dogs, but it’s become apparent over the last few weeks that Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker weren’t in the studio together yet.
In a new interview with Noisey, Travis Barker stated that recording new music has been a “challenge” and that he can’t wait for the stars to align in terms of blink hitting the studio to sacrifice not recording on other projects. Barker hopes that the band can still hit the studio before Reading and Leeds this summer, but didn’t necessarily show full confidence in releasing music before the summer like originally planned. Check out part of the interview below after the jump.
Feeling fragile, cast aside these walls surround you Losing touch with what surround you, I just don’t feel like myself anymore. Can’t even sleep. Take my dreams they’re yours to keep Take my head and hold me down, I’m in too deep I can’t get out
Running in circles and falling in hopes on the way to where I’m trying to go Most of the time that I think there’s an end I come to find out that it’s not even close.
