Rest In Peace: PropertyofZack

I never imagined I would have to write this post, but here we are.

Today is the last day our friends at PropertyofZack will be updating their beloved music blog. We have always viewed Zack and his team as both equals and competitors. Our transformation from the blog that was started in 2008 into what we are today is a direct result of POZ being a part of the world. With every step they took to change the game, we too tried to find a new way to be unique. We also collaborated from time to time, often to the …

MUST WATCH: Head North Perform Acoustic Cover Of “Empty Space” (The Story So Far)

By now, I’m sure you regret not listening to Head North earlier. In case you’ve been too lazy to check out the Buffalo band’s EP, Scrapbook Minds or their split with Connecticut’s A Will Away, the band has released an excellent acoustic cover of The Story So Far’s “Empty Space” over at PropertyOfZack. Mellowed out and performed with two vocalists and guitars, the cover takes a whole new approach to the song. It’s far from a straight-forward cover, and Head North is far from a straight-forward band. Fans of Head North and The Story So Far are sure to …

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize


PropertyOfZack Previews Skate and Surf With Artists’ Timelines

Some monumental bands from the early 2000s are performing at Skate and Surf this weekend. To commemorate these artists and all of their hard work over the years, our buds over at PropertyOfZack put together a timeline honoring each of their histories. Here’s what PropertyOfZack had to say:

Many of us reflect back on the early 2000’s as a true golden age for the music that we love the most – the term “emo” hadn’t yet been bastardized by the mainstream, Drive-Thru Records was putting out release after release of foundational pop-punk, and no one had really thought yet to

PropertyOfZack Discusses Their First Concert

Our friends at fellow AbsoluteVoices site PropertyOfZack have a weekly discussion feature. This week, they’ve picked “My First Concert Experience”. In it, several staff members and musicians discuss their first concerts or shows and what it lead to.

As you’d expect, Zack’s involves a member of blink 182, but there are a handful of surprises on there. Some notable musicians who take part in the discussion are Matt Brasch from The Wonder Years and “Shitty” Greg Horbal from The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die. It’s always fun to learn more about …


Mystery Project Shone Leads Fans On Scavenger Hunt, New Song Found

Earlier this month, several rock artists Tweeted links to, including Vinnie Caruana, Kevin Devine, and eventually John Nolan, Thrice, and Manchester Orchestra. The website has been updating videos at its page on a regular basis between midnight and one AM Eastern time, leading fans to speculate on what the page was actually for. The website is called Heat Thing, but it speaks of Shone on the website – but more on this part of the mystery later.

It has a mailing list – not just digital, but also asking for your home address. It gives …

Attack Attack! 2012

Attack Attack! Lose Frontman Caleb Shomo; New Vocalist Already Recruited

Ohio-based act Attack Attack! have been relatively quiet this Fall. From what we recall, the group had a short run of shows near Halloween, but that has pretty much been it. This morning, our friends at PropertyOfZack may have solved the reason behind the band’s silence, and it’s a story that feels awfully familiar for this heavy band.

According to their sources, POZ can confirm that Caleb Shomo is no longer the vocalist for Attack Attack! The band has replaced Shomo already, but no names or announcements have been made. If we had to guess, the fact this news has …


Pentimento’s Former Label Claiming Songs They Don’t Own

Our friends over at PropertyofZack have uncovered something quite interesting: apparently, Panic Records is issuing copyright claims and taking down the videos for Pentimento‘s music on Youtube. The problem? Panic Records is no longer Pentimento’s label, and doesn’t own the rights at all, according to the report.

We’ll keep you updated on what this is all about as we learn more, but so far it seems to be another case of an indie label trying to use its former bands for money and not ending on the most amiable of terms. Thanks to POZ for the discovery.
