All you City And Colour fans out there, get ready for Dallas Green’s next installment of folksy sorrow through soulful singing. According to the Canadian singer-songwriter’s Instagram, recording for the new album is finally done “right before the final #alexisonfire tour!” For those of you who don’t know, Green’s former post-hardcore band Alexisonfire, who broke up last year, are about to embark on a long overdue farewell tour starting on December 2nd in London, UK. While it is sad to see them go, the world has a lot to look forward to with City And Colour’s newest release.

It has been over a decade since midwest emo/indie rock band American Football broke up. Since then, there has been a recent resurgence of interest in their music, influencing many pop-punk, post-rock, post-hardcore, and various other types of bands to play shiny, harmonically rich and emotive music. While this style of music has humbly existed for years since American Football’s time, it has been gaining more exposure and was recently dubbed the unfortunately laughable genere title of “twinklecore,” due to the sort of “twinkling” sound of the clean guitar playing.
Needless to say, fans will be excited to hear that Polyvinyl Records have announced that they will be releasing some unreleased and never-before-heard tracks by American Football. According to a post on the company’s Instagram profile, they “just got a package from Steve Holmes (American Football) w/ 7 old cassettes full of AF gems. Some songs are unreleased, some are boom box practices. Let the digitizing begin!” Although the material is about 12 years old, with the recent twinkle-core trend, these recordings may not actually sound so much like the blast from the past that they truly are.

Jack’s Mannequin are having a hard time saying goodbye. Though bandleader Andrew McMahon initially announced that the group would be playing its final show on November 11 at the third annual Dear Jack benefit, he later released the details of a second “farewell show” the following night. According to McMahon, the second show is a result of overwhelming demand from fans, and will allow attendees to make “double the impact” in supporting the Dear Jack Foundation, which McMahon founded to support organizations that provide treatment to young adults living with cancer.
We are all connected. Our generation’s need for information has bred a certain hyper awareness, an insatiable desire for instant information coupled with a distaste for gatekeepers. The mindset of today’s youth is something along the lines of, “Get out of my way, geezer. I’m doing 80 in the fast lane of the information superhighway.”
Do people still call it the information superhighway?
News of album announcements come by way of Google+ Hangouts. Twitter has replaced wire services as the means by which artists relay information to their fans and to the media.

It has been adopted by celebrities, musicians, even Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei. But who should you be following on Instagram? Well fear not, dear reader! We know the best accounts to follow.
