I'm Adam White and I'll be your guide through some of the most popular, notable, and otherwise attention getting stories of the past seven days. Each and every Punknews story is built from tips contributed by you fine folks, and here's what got the strange, slow, old people in the community talking… The People Must Have Something Good To Read On A Sunday This week's most popular stories We could really launch an entire Against Me! sub-site given the volume of news they generate. The band was involved in a bus crash earlier this week, but walked away with no serious injuries. Frontman Tom Gabel commented on the accident, and also streamed his new solo LP Heart Burns. The band itself will begin to work on their next album soon, and has laid out plans for writing early next year. Popular act Fall Out Boy is aiming to set a record for the most radio interviews in a day on Halloween. The group is doing the press in support of their upcoming album Folie à Deux. The massively influential band Jawbreaker is planning a reissue of their Unfun album. They'll also be the subject of an upcoming documentary. To top it all off, Frontman Blake Schwarzenbach also revealed that he's making music again with an as-yet-unnamed group.

3rd wave ska survivors Reel Big Fish are planning a covers album. A tribute to Kid Dynamite is set for release in the spring and will feature interpretations of the band's work from acts like the Ergs, This Is Hell, and Broadway Calls.
