  • Rise Against have released a new webisode entitled Savior. Tim McIlrath blogged this about the webisode: "You shot this! That's right, we gave video cameras to a handful of die-hard fans at our most recent show at RED ROCKS in Colorado and here's what they came back with. As you can see here, our tour with Rancid has been epic and it's still rolling on all through July, so don't miss out if we end up in your neighborhood!"
  • Manchester Orchestra and Favorite Gentlemen have released "Everything To Nothing" on Apple QuickTime. "Everything To Nothing" is the tenth video in the 11-part series. The video continues the story of a young woman on a surreal journey through decaying film and lost memories to discover what she is missing. In this chapter she lands in a barren wasteland devoid of life or hope, but ultimately stumbles upon a powerful discovery. The full-album series concept was conceived by the Emmy Award winning directing team of Clay Lipsky and Jason Bognacki of Destroy Rock Music Inc., whom also directed "I Can Barely Breathe" from the band's debut "I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child."
