Anti-Flag have never shied away from exploring the complex political and social issues that affect their native United States while also maintaining a dogged awareness of world affairs. This naturally finds its way into the punk band's searing, abrasive music and with their tenth album American Spring they continue to wear their political ideals on their sleeves.

Kingston, Ontario’s PS I Love You have made a name for themselves in the indie rock world over the past 2 years with solid releases of loud and energetic jams straight from the garage. We spoke with guitarist/vocalist Paul Saulnier about touring the globe, band dynamics, and their newest album, Death Dreams. Scene Point Blank: What’s been the biggest difference in the reception (at shows, on the web, etc.) between the release of Meet Me At The Muster Station and Death Dreams? Paul Saulnier: It's cool that people at our shows seem to know us and ...
