Acclaimed director Anto Boros (also known as the bassist of The Swellers) is back with the follow-up to his 2010 debut, Les Incorruptibles. Political Punishment is the tale of a mayor's son who gets kidnapped during election time. It's jam-packed with special effects and stunts so buckle your seatbelt and enjoy the bumpy ride.
Political Punishment was filmed during The Swellers' summer tour with friends Fake Problems and Daytrader.
from Hayley, Jeremy & Taylor of Paramore:
For months now, we've promised that we'd be releasing some new songs before the end of the year. Well, here is where we finally make good on all of that. We are very happy to announce the Paramore Singles Club that will be happening throughout the rest of the year. This club is our way of getting these songs directly to the Paramore family. The only place you will be able to get them is on Paramore.net so think of these songs as our little secret to you.
As most of you already know, when we went into the studio at the beginning of the year to record "Monster" we also recorded a few other songs.

After nine years and three albums, The Academy Is... have decided to go our separate ways. We began in 2003 as three young friends in the suburbs of Chicago, with dreams of creating music that meant something to us. Dreams of leaving those suburbs behind and seeing all of the beautiful things that this world has to offer. Dreams of making a difference in the lives of others.
It is now 2011 and we look back at the records we've made, the shows we've played, the places we've been.
The people we've met.
The Academy Is... has made its mark.
We celebrate the experiences of our past, as we welcome what lies ahead.
While we have never managed to make things easy on ourselves, it is safe to say that we have always found common ground in our love of music.
And though we may not be together, you
