Panic! At The Disco + Weezer

#335 May 2016

IDOL WORSHIP! Rivers Cuomo finds Panic! At The Disco; making Real Friends w/ the Starting Line; Pierce The Veil & John Oates' rad bromance!

PANIC! AT THE DISCO+WEEZER
Brendon Urie: a bubbly, irrepressible frontman. Rivers Cuomo: a studious, driven recluse. What happens when these two get together? We weren’t sure either, but figured we might as well let the two summer tourmates get to know each other, talking about everything from onstage pranks to math homework. Buckle up!

FEATURES
MOVEMENTS
The Cali rockers of Movements seemed to have it all after a whirlwind few months of releasing one demo and getting signed to Fearless Records. But they’re here to prove they’ve got even more grind left in them—and are ready to show off on a stage near you.
Written by Catherine Yi

MODERN BASEBALL
Not many bands would have the sort of fans who’d rally behind them after they cancel tour dates and festival appearances… except those who support Modern Baseball. The emo survivalists are humbled but heady as they attack the next phase of their career: recovery.
Written by Maria Sherman

SAOSIN
It’s been a long ride for the post-hardcore legends, but they’re back with a new album—and their previous frontman, Anthony Green, for the first time since their 2003 LP Translating The Name. He’s not in the shadows any more.
