///Architecture in Helsinki is back after a bit of a break. To let us all know they are truly serious they are getting ready to release a new EP built around a re-recording of their song "Like it or Not." Polyvinyl Records will be releasing the EP digitally May 27th and in stores on July 8th. [Thanks, Pfork]
///The band that some have been heard to say is the best Chicago punk band right now, the Sass Dragons, have a new album out via Let's Pretend Records/Johann's Face Records. See them at Ronny's on May 17th.
///Superchunk is currently half done writing and recording a new album. The band plans to finish the album, but does not have any kind of schedule to help them get it done. When it is eventually released it will be the first release since 2001's Here's to Shutting Up. [Thanks, Aversion]
///After problems with the final city inspection it looks like the new Bottom Lounge will finally get around to hosting their first show since they moved from their Belmont/Sheffield location. The first show will (probably) be Urge Overkill on May 2nd. [Thanks, Theft Liable]
