I’ve been off the last couple of weeks. Taking some time to reconnect with nature. Find my center. Look at lots of porn. You know the usual. We’re gonna wrap up our Warp Tour interviews today and move on to a bright and sunny future with our other upcoming interviews in the next few weeks.
This week we talk with The Gym Class Heroes and The Street Dogs. I doubt you could find two more different bands on Warped Tour. Maybe you could, but we’re not here to talk about how cool you are, so stow it. It’s a fun time and the guys in Street Dogs even reference our favorite website, Punknews.org. So peep that.
This is the last week of our Against Me! S/T 12″ contest (that ran a bit longer than expected). Listen to the last 8 minutes of the shows to learn how to enter. We’ll be back and better than ever next week. So be ready…Are you ready? Then get ready. And remember “Sure. Technically, I don’t know.”
Welcome, to this the 80-something episode of Sound Scene Revolution. This is the second of our three Warped Tour Interview sections. This week we sit down with The Aggrolites, Story of the Year and Cobra Starship. Well, it’s more standing than sitting. Regardless, they’re pretty epically nasty and I highly reccomend you listen.
We are continuing our Against Me! contest for this week, so be sure to listen to learn how to enter. We’ll be back next week with tons more zany good times. And remember, “The difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.” And dogs don’t bullshit themselves into thinking abstinence is the best answer for teenage pregnancy.
We’re back folks with probably our best podcast this week! Our show today is a double dose of Warped Tour Madness featuring The Bronx and (for the third time) Against Me!. We couldn’t be more excited as we talk with Matt, of The Bronx, about their two new albums and the insanity of Bronx vinyl. We were even more stoked to talk to Warren of Against Me!. The boys of AM! weren’t doing interviews that day, but we pulled some strings and managed to land a quickie with Florida’s favorite drummer/beard patron.
We also have a really exciting contest that we’ll be running for the next couple of weeks. One lucky winner will get a copy of Against Me!’s S/T 12″ EP. Only 500 of these were made and they sell for around $200 on ebay, so be sure to listen to the last 8 minutes of the broadcast to learn how to enter to win.
Holy crap! For the two of you who might read this crap, we’ve finally rolled out a show on time for the first time since your mom was sober enough to pass out somewhere other than the porch. How did we manage to do this amazing feat of averageness? Mostly, because this is a Warped Tour episode and the show was recorded and edited weeks ago…BUT, also because I had a remarkably slow day at work and got to type the blog on the clock. Take that, the man!
So, the down side is that all the punctuality on Earth can’t make Warped Tour interviews good but Killswitch Engage can. That’s right this week we sit down with those crazy kids of metalcore to discuss the finer points of metal, punk and short shorts. Also this week has Hawaii’s very own Pepper. Other than sharing their name with a popular dinner condiment I didn’t/don’t know anything about these guys, so don’t ask me.
We’ll be wrapping up all of our contests next week, but for now you have one last chance to enter our Asian Man Contests (Lawrence Arms and Dan Potthast interviews) and the Whole Wheat Bread contest. So enter now, or just shut your trap. Leave us e-cards filled with viruses at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, MySpace or the comments sections.
Hurricane Rich, out.
Welcome back. No reason to waste a lot of time on this because it’s part two of our three part WARPED TOUR SHITTACULAR!!! Basically, it’s us filtering through every single artist the fine folks at Warped Tour threw at us. And like the ubber pro’s we are, we handled each interview like we didn’t know who the hell these people were (because mostly, we didn’t).
So sit back and enjoy The Briggs, The Warped Tour Comedians (yeah, seriously) and Authority Zero. No on contests but our Asian Man Extravaganza and our Whole Wheat Bread contest are still open so check those out. Always, always (always?), yes always, hit us up at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments section.
So, a week back into shows and it seems like my writer’s block has cleared up, yah! Unfortunately, you now have to (well I guess not “have to” but you should) listen to what is now known as “The Warped Tour shit-fest!”. Not that I have anything against the Warped Tour, I mean we had to apply for press Pass, which in and of itself is 90% more work than we normally do. So we had to want to get in. However, once inside the Warped Tour press tent, we entered a land where time and space functioned in odd, unexplainable ways. A world where Big D and the Kids Table weren’t listed on the interview schedule, but you could interview them if you asked the press lady about it. A world where that same press lady would continually feed you band after band of crap that you didn’t request and you didn’t know a thing about. In short, a world gone mad.
So out of the three interviews we wanted we got one. Still, we left with 7 interviews, that’s 6 whole interviews filled with bands we don’t know and people we don’t know what to ask. So sit back and enjoy the awkwardness of entire interviews where I avoid asking bands about their music, because I don’t know anything about them.
As far as contests go, we’re not going to ask bands on Warped Tour, making no money, to give us free shit. Sorry, but we’re not total assholes. But stay tuned for some real contests coming up soon. Also, say hi at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments. It’s so totally awesome it makes us forget that Al Qaeda is regrouping.
This week we bring you the fantastic second edition of our Warped Tour interviews. So sit back and enjoy music and interviews from The Living end and Every Time I Die. One band is Australian and plays an upright bass, one is American and has a music video featuring Michael Madsen, I’ll let you decide who is who. However, I will tell you that urine, Revolver magazine, and giant hair is discussed.
As these bands are both much to famous to give us stuff (and we didn’t want to ask as Warped Tour is draining enough) we will simply be running our Akimbo contest for another week. So check out the end of last weeks broadcast to learn how to enter to win fabulous prizes. As always, you can hit us up at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or under the comments section. Enjoy and check back next week for continued heights of awesomeness.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Double post today (first one ever, so be excited)! In this very special Warped Tour Edition we decided to bring you the maximum rock possible in the minimum time frame. That means interviews with both Against Me! and The Casualties.
First we talk with AM! bassist Andrew all about Florida, signing to Sire and why Vinnie from Less Than Jake interrupted our interview to dance around shirtless. Next we talk to Jake of The Casualties about their new album, recording a Spanish album and where they get their hair products. So enjoy.
Also, we will continue run our Theo and the Skyscrapers contest, so listen to the end of last weeks broadcast to get all the rules on how to enter that. And please drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, MySpace or on our comments section.
