First off, Amely gave Alternative Press the information on their final EP, The Raleigh Sessions. They talked a bit about what they are going to be doing from now on, and are showing off their track listing and album cover. You can check out both right here as well as a statement from the vocalist Petie Pizarro.
""We have actually announced our breakup as a band so this EP is a farewell EP that we self recorded, produced, and mixed. The entire process from start to finish was created by the band alone in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is a digital only release and will be on iTunes and Spotify November 21st.
Thanks so much for supporting Amely you guys, it really means a lot to myself as well as the other dudes. AP really lifted our spirits when we saw ourselves in the readers polls multiple times. Thanks so much for everything.
Also, for your curiosity... 3 of the members of Amely including myself are actually starting an all ROCK band (Not pop punk), called Sovereign Soliders"

The Summer Set have announced they will be releasing a very well thought out holiday EP. Please read their statement here.
"Today marked the end of our three day stint in the studio here in Phoenix. We recorded two Christmas songs, one called “Something ‘Bout This Time Of Year” and another called “Old Mexico” (strange title for a Christmas song eh?). There’s a reoccurring theme in both of these songs, the importance of being around the ones you love this time of year. All too often people get caught up in materialistic things, every billboard, every TV commercial is telling you what you “NEED,” when the truth is you don’t actually “need” any of that shit, it’s not important, the people you love are what really matter.
Because of that, we’re talking about calling this Holiday EP What Money Can’t Buy. Thoughts?"
Sounds rather interesting to me, and makes perfect sense.
Then finaly, New Found Glory has released a documentry about their lastest album, Radiosurgery. Radiosurgery came out on October 4, 2011, and they felt fans should know more! You can watch the behind-the-scenes documentary at the link below.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
