The People Must Have Something Good To Read On A Sunday
This week’s most popular stories

Dillinger Four‘s hotly anticipated new album C I V I L W A R leaked onto the internet a few weeks back, and the resulting drama has people taking in music magazines, web comics, blogs and elsewhere. We collected statements from some of the involved parties and commentators together for you to check out. We had further updates on Travis Barker’s condition. The Blink-182 / Plus 44 drummer, who was in a jet crash last week and severly burned, is headed for a recovery. The nominees for the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame were announced this week, and the group includes bands like Metallica, Run D.M.C. and the Stooges. This week saw the launch of MySpace Music, and lingering questions on the services’ relationship with indie labels. The music industry is also still struggling with the fact that it’s not 1992 anymore, as evidenced by laments that iTunes has killed the album. Boo hoo.

Sub Pop has signed Orbits, a band featuring Rick Froberg of Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. Derek Grant of the Alkaline Trio has released a free solo album. The Hope Conspiracy are set to hit the studio soon to record a new EP with Kurt Ballou of Converge. The Bouncing Souls unveiled their cover of Johnny Cash‘s “Man In Black.” North Lincoln is streaming a quartet of new songs. The Ergs are not long for this world, so treat each new song as an event. On the moving pictures front this week we saw a free full length documentary from Michael Moore. Against Me! unveiled their clip for “Borne on the FM Airwaves of the Heart.” Rise Against released “Re-Education (Through Labor),” Jimmy Eat WorldBeautiful Day” from Yo Gabba Gabba, and Fall Out BoyI Don’t Care.” The aforementioned Rise Against has plans to tour Germany with Strike Anywhere, while Face To Face will hit Australia in 2009.

Since The Flood (2002-2008)

Since the Flood has called it quits. The band formed in 2002 and released Valor And Vengeance via Ironclad and then No Compromise on Metal Blade. The band had this to say:

No matter what anyone thought of us, we were a blue collar band. We never had the hype that many more recent bands enjoy. We toured our asses off, partied all over the world, and wrote music that we loved to play. Since the Flood never made any money and never turned into a true business.

Why the break-up? Gas prices? Member issues? Yup. But those aren’t the main reasons. It’s just time to move on. For Chuck, Kevin, and Rob that time came sooner than later, but for Dave, Nate, Ricky, Dan and I, the time is now. There’s no anger or bitterness it’s just time to start a new chapter in our lives and careers.
