If you like high-energy, loud punk rock, there's a good chance you'll like Well Aren't You Precious. They prefer to be called "rock 'n' roll" but I've taken it upon myself to label them "garage punk" because I think it better encompasses their overall sound. The boys from Iowa show that punk is still alive in the Midwest, and remind me a bit of fellow Midwest punks, Off With Their Heads. You can stream their entire album Awwwww on Bandcamp. There's also the option to buy it on CD/digital, so keep that in mind!

In addition to being a founding member of Blink 182, Angels and Airwaves and Boxcar Racer, co-founder of two clothing companies and avid UFO conspiracy theorist, Tom DeLonge has got a new bullet to add to the resume: children’s book author.
That’s right. DeLonge teamed up with illustrator Mike Henry to release “The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve.” The book is billed as the “tale of a rocketeer alone on the moon on a cold Christmas Eve night, and the gift he receives from a few unexpected (and extraterrestrial) friends.”
“The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve” will ship by December 25th; pre-orders will go live on November 25th. Click here for more info. DeLonge and Henry also announced a charity auction to benefit Rady’s Children’s Hospital in San Diego. The auction will be live here on November 25th and run through December 13th.Add to My Radar

After leaving longtime home Interscope Records, Blink is in talks for a new deal. It expects to record new material within the next 90 days. Nostalgia surrounding the 10th anniversary of “Blink-182″ notwithstanding, the idea is to channel the 2003 mojo into the new material.
Step 1: shack up in some opulent SoCal spot for the duration of recording. This time, Hoppus said, they’re thinking Malibu.
We’ll keep you posted as more details surrounding new material from the band come to light! Blink-182 parted ways with Interscope Records last October and self-released their latest EP “Dogs Eating Dogs” a few months later.Add to My Radar

Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus recently told MTV News that the band had forgotten about the tenth anniversary of their self-titled fifth album and only planned a special celebration for it because a fan reminded them via Twitter. He explains:
“Someone on Twitter @-replied to me, pointing out that the 10-year anniversary of the album was approaching. That was maybe three weeks ago. So I emailed Travis and Tom, suggesting that we could perform the whole album live. It all came together very quickly. I’ve been re-learning the bass parts and rehearsing alone in my house here in London … Some of these songs we’ve never performed live.”
