This week The Fest announced more bands playing this year's weekend in Gainesville. The new additions include a Gunmoll reunion show and apperances from Carpenter, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Chris Wollard and the Ship Thieves, Vicious Cycle, American Steel and Drag The River.

Dead to Me posted the song "Modern Muse" from their upcoming full length African Elephants. The band also announced that guitarist / co-vocalist Jack Dalrymple did not participate it the recording, nor will he join the band on upcoming tours. Bassist / vocalist Chicken insists that Dalrymple is still in the band though, he's just taking a fatherhood sabbatical.

With their recent reunion the Get Up Kids are getting all nostalgic on us. In a recent interview Jim Suptic discussed his love for Fugazi and outright apologized if the Get Up Kids' influence help create today's glam rock-like emo / punk scene.

Suburban Home announced the
next three Under The Influence pairings. Look for splits between O Pioneers!!! and New Bruises, Joey Cape paired with Mike Hale, and Kevin Seconds with Kepi Ghoulie.

Jello Biafra has returned with a new band dubbed Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine. The band features Billy Gould of Faith No More, Kimo Ball of Freak Accident, Ralph Spight of Victims Family, and Jon Weiss.
