New Found Maturity? Not
punkbands reports: New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert wants to clear something up: Despite what he's said in recent interviews, the upcoming NFG album will not mark some sort of mature departure for the band. He just got a little carried away with himself. "When I was talking about the Decemberists and bands like that being influences, I meant that they were influences on me," he said. 

"There are four other people in this band, too, and their influences are going to be heard on the record just as much as mine. So if I said our new album was going to be more mature, I meant that each of us is getting more mature. Trust me the new album sounds like a New Found Glory album. It sounds like the best album we've ever made."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Silverstein Records
Victory Records reports: Shane Told, frontman for Canada's Silverstein, has started Verona Records. "I've started a label not as a business venture, or to gain anything for myself. I see amazingly talented bands all over the world, and so many of them have no direction on what to do on the business side of things. I've started this label to guide these bands in the right direction, and help provide them with the finances they need to really give themselves the best shot at playing music full time."

The first signing is Dead and Divine, from Told's hometown of Oakville, Ontario, and for those expecting them to sound like Silverstein, think again. "This band is VERY metal, he says. And super talented. I saw so much potential in these guys, that I asked them if I could put out their record." Their debut release comes out November 29th.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
