Contributed by alex101. Posted by mark on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Foo Fighters Fans in South America, save your pesos (Chilean, Argentine and Colombian) as well as your reis (Brazil), because Foo Fighters are coming your way in January of 2015. The band, which will be releasing its eighth album, Sonic Highways, on November 10, 2014 via Sony/RCA, recently played a crowdsourced show in Richmond, VA where frontman Dave Grohl recounted his first experience seeing local heroes (by way of Antarctica), GWAR. GWAR drummer Jizmak Da Gusha revealed after the show just how close Grohl had been to certain destruction at the alien's hands.

Contributed by an Anonymous Source. Posted by mark on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM (EDT)
Image Fans of pop-punk and not paying for stuff, listen up! Tampa FL's Awkward Age is offering their new full length album online for free. In anticipation of the band's Fest-related activities (a "Pre-Pre-Fest" show, as well as Pre-Fest and of course, Fest), the band's new full-length album, We Could Be Anywhere, is being made available without cost for one week, but will cost $5 after their show on Sept. 27 at New World Brewery in Tampa. Says the band:
Get it now so you can spend your hard earned cash on more important things, like Oreos and coffee. We're sending out to make physical copies (both CD and LP) soon, but you can get it NOW!


The album can be found on Awkward Age's Bandcamp. Awkward Age will be playing Fest on Saturday, Nov. 1 at Durty Nelly's.

Posted by johng on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
D.O.A. Joey Keithley, frontman of long running punk band D.O.A., has stated that despite the group's previous announcements that they were ending, the band has decided to continue. Keithley stated:
"When I lost my nomination by five votes, I was pissed. But I soon realized that I had not forgotten how to write songs, how to sing and play guitar and how to kick ass up on stage! So I am ramping up D.O.A. again and we're going to let our street politics tell the stories about what's really happening!"

In addition to Keithley, the band now includes Paddy Duddly on drums and Mike Hodsall on bass. They are planning to release a new album in March 2015. The band released the live album Welcome To Chinatown in 2013.
