iPod Jeans
hecklerspray reports: Hey, you look like you've got more money than sense. Step inside, we've got quite an offer for you. That's a nice iPod you have, but isn't it a chore having to take it out of your pockets sometimes?

Imagine the unbelievable stress on your arms each time you have to haul your iPod from the pocket of your jeans to turn it on or off or to work out what blindingly esoteric song your impeccably varied playlist has thrown up.

YOB Split
Metal Blade reports: This is Mike from YOB. I regret to say that YOB is disbanding after almost 10 years of existence. The time we spent with YOB exceeded our wildest expectations and hopes and it has truly been a dream come true. Travis Foster and Isamu Sato left the band in July, and I have been trying to decide what to do for the last six months. YOB has had 3 other line-ups, but this one was the best. At the end of the day the best thing for YOB is to call it a day. I want to thank everyone who has been supportive to YOB over the years....labels, bands, fans, the venues, our families....without you none of this would have been possible. I will be working on a new band called AGE that will very much be in the vein of YOB, with some new twists. Until then, be well and stay HEAVY! ENDLESS DOOM!!!
