All Time Low has posted a mysterious countdown and what appears to be artwork for an album on the website. The countdown will end on June 1, and the artwork simply says "The Reckless And The Brave". The band has given no explaination for this, and only let fans see it by posting a link to their website.
Fans are speculating if that is the title for the new album, or the first single off they are currently working on. This may be possible, but one thing nobody has considered that today is Memorial Day. "The Reckless and The Brave" may not be a title of any sort, but a remembrance for the soliders.
Everyone can find out what's going on June 1st. Don't forget that you can catch All Time Low at the Vans Warped tour June 16 through August 5h.
It was brought to my attention this morning that rumors of Kellin Quinn's departure of Sleeping With Sirens. With the recent birth of his daughter, Copeland, these rumors are quite plausable.
How after, after much research, no proof has been found. This rumor has been around for several months now, The singer has not even made any sort of meantion about this on his personal Twitter account (@kellinquinn), nor has the band spoken of this.
Until it is confirmed, it is safe to say that Sleeping With Sirens will still be on Warped tour 2012 with their singer as Kellin Quinn.
Tom Gabel, Against Me!'s front man has revealed that he is planning to begin living life as a woman! The whole story will be featured in the next issue of Rolling Stone magazine but its been exerpted on the websites for Rolling Stone, and Alternative Press.
Its come out that Tom has been dealing with gender dysophoria for years, and has now made the choice to start the sex change process. Eventually, Tom will take on the name Laura Jane Grace, and he is remaining married to his wife, Heather. "For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news." Tom said. "But she's been super-amazing and understanding."
Until talking to Rolling Stone magazine, Tom had only told a handful of people about the transition. He knows it will not be an easy thing to through, but this will be good for him. The full story will be in the next issue or Rolling Stone, which will be available May 11.

This November, for the first time ever, the UK can get to experience the American tradtion known as Warped tour. The tour itself was announced weeks ago, but the bands were just announced. More band announcements are on the way, but this is the current line up for the UK Warped tour 2012.
