AP.net Interview: The Copyrights -

We recently interviewed The Copyrights about its brand new record Report and recording with Mike Kennerty from the All-American Rejects. Physical copies of the album are out on Tuesday via Red Scare Industries.
While we were gone he put in some guitar leads and harmonies himself, which kind of makes him like a member of the band on this record. I mastered it at my studio here in Illinois after, probably three weeks altogether which is the longest we’ve ever spent on a record.

AP.net Podcast: Do The Genre Hop (Episode 48) -

Last week’s episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast featured an interview with Hopeless Records as we took a little mini-break from our regular conversations. This week we’re back with a jam-packed episode that covers a variety of topics: We look at what it’s like working in this industry and offer advice for those wanting to get into it, we discuss if album cycles lead to albums being overhyped and if bands basically get two albums before collapsing under the expectations. We also touch on musicians that genre-hop in order to prolong their careers, and we ask the question everyone seems to be wondering: Uh, what the fuck is going on with Transit? Is Tim still in the band? What’s going on over in that camp? Plus there’s a nice rant or two all about Pitchfork’s “Albums of the Decade” list. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.
