News Again

Taking Back Sunday’s much anticipated new album, New Again is slated for release on June 2. Though that day can’t come fast enough for some, including me, TBS has posted a brief clip of their upcoming single “Sink Into Me” on their MySpace. And if that isn’t enough to whet your musical taste buds, here’s an article from MTV News on New Again and TBS’s recent video shoot for “Sink Into Me.” TBS is currently finishing up a tour or Europe before embarking on a two-month full United States tour, which kicks off at The Bamboozle.

Greensboro, NC’s Mercy Mercedes has posted new music, according to AbsolutePunk.net. Check out the demos, “Drop Top” and “Outta Time (It’s Alright, It’s OK)” on their Purevolume.

AbsolutePunk.net has also reported that MPLS‘s Sing It Loud has their new music video on mtvU. The video is for “Come Around,” which is the title track from their 2008 Epitaph debut.

Allhiphop.com reported that emcee Asher Roth was involved in stopping a bomb scare on an airplane today. According to the website, the incident occurred on a flight from Atlanta to LAX. A struggle broke out between a flight attendant and with a man who claimed to have a bomb. The subject was subdued by passengers, including Roth and bassist Chris Llewellyn.

I briefly referenced Roth and his performance in my post about the mtvU Woodie Awards. I failed to mention that he apparently also fights crime. According to Roth’s Wikipedia entry, he was recently named one of Hip Hop’s Top 10 Freshmen of 2009 by XXL magazine. Meanwhile, his debut album is set to be released in March of this year. For more on this story, check out this article I found from MTV News while writing this post.
