It's Sunday June 4th, 2006. So there is finally word of a new Dillinger Four record, which means you can all stop the asking when its coming. We were looking for a good "hell freezes over" picture to run with this week's article, but all the internet had to offer was a damn Eagles album cover and that horribly overused picture of a frozen Hell road sign. There's no way I'm perpetuating that meme, so here's some nudity. Enjoy.

Stories you were talking about this week

Two major records were online streaming this week, and everyone had a chance to finally check out AFI's Decemberunderground and the Bouncing Souls' The Gold Record. The bill to study the effects of depleted uranium munitions has successfully passed the house in the U.S. Congress, that bill being backed by congressman Jim McDermott, who worked with bands like Anti-Flag to get the word out. It's been a long time, but there's finally word that Dillinger Four will release a new album. Expect The Civil War on Halloween. Which side are you on? Other big stories in this week included some talk on Green Day's plans, an upcoming single from Slayer, a new album from Goldfinger, and some questionable choices on NME's "Best Albums of All Time" list. Finally, we've had more confirmation on that upcoming Lifetime / Bronx tour, seems that The Loved Ones are along for the ride as well.

This week we spoke to several bands, including Farewell to Arms, Brandtson and Aloha. Check those interviews out.
