(Alternative Addiction) On September 27 Blink 182 will return with their new album 'Neighborhoods' their first since the band's return from hiatus in 2009. Alternative Addiction recently caught up with Tom DeLonge to talk about the sound of the band's upcoming album. "It's really a big can of all three of our worlds shaken up and poured out," said DeLonge. "In the album you'll hear elements of hip-hop rhythms mixed with suburban punk and indie rock experimentation." The mixture of all three members influences is actually what drove the title for the album Neighborhoods according to DeLonge. a lot more here.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers "I'm With You" live performance reportedly suffered some technical issues according to fans on the band's official Facebook page. On a related notes, a reader and RHCP fan has a big issue with the band's new album, namely the volume of the mastering, and sent us this call to arms: "As an avid RHCP fan, from a link on your site, I go to listen to the album on the free stream on Itunes, it was so distorted and compressed I didn't bother to finish. Not that I didn't love what I heard but it the volume was so loud that it sounded almost mono and dynamically void. So finally I sit here listening to the physical copy, and wow the music's so LOUD I can't even form an honest opinion unless I resort to listening on a set of cheap speakers. I spent way too much on my speakers and this CD to have to suffer this!!!!!!!!! I have had this complaint for years and heard many bands abuse this Loudness War. So here is where I can only beg for your help. The RHCP are the only band out there big enough other than Metallica to have a huge twitter and FB (oddly enough, no Google+ presence?) following. If enough people will like or read the complaints (and I speak for a massive community) then maybe they these bands will either calm the practice, or issue an audiophile mastered copy." We couldn't find the specific complaints at the links provided but perhaps you may have better luck. Here is one, where you can read more about the live event problems as well. Look for "Please for the love of god, someone fix this! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war". We do not have a copy of this album on hand to hear for ourselves but if you agree or disagree that it is too loud, you can comment below.
