They are one of history's big 3 Christian ska bands (and many say the best of that bunch), and Five Iron Frenzy is back. The band's publicity team says: "With their first studio album in over a decade, Five Iron Frenzy pushes their characteristic sound into new territory, exploring darker themes, both lyrically and musically, without sacrificing their sense of humor. Eschewing nostalgia, the members bring a fresh and evolved perspective to their songwriting." The album "Engine Of A Million Plots" is due out November 26th and it will be released on dual labels: Tooth and Nail and on the band's own imprint, the Department of Biophysics.

The Wedding's video for "In The End" is a lot of fun and full of high energy. Headbanging, stage-diving, cymbals on fire, and the guys taking a motorcycle ride in the desert. Here is the link: http://www.vevo.com/watch/the-wedding/in-the-end/USUV71301347?source=instantsearch The song has been through some heavy-duty Blasting. It is in heavy rotation on The Blast.
Blasters: the 64k stream address has changed. Get the new 64k stream link in your player by entering http://www.theblast.fm/theblast64k.pls in your media player. A few of you are still on the old 64k AAC+ stream address, which runs at 40k through November… to get your attention before it goes. Clear the cache in The Blast app, force stop on app, if the 64k is not working for you on or after Dec 1st, to make sure you have the new 64k stream.
The 80k Ogg Vorbis stream is back on the home page. This is a favorite of some of our Linux Blasters. It pops up in the built-in HTML5 player in Chrome, Firefox, and some other cutting-edge browsers. Launched from Internet Explorer, it will open in Winamp or VLC Player, with full metadata support in the media player. There is no metadata in the HTML5 players in the Chrome and Firefox browsers. Instead, you can get the metadata from our homepage, www.TheBlast.FM. In our re-testing of the player this week, it works much better in Firefox than in Chrome.; Since Winamp support ends December 20th due to AOL giving it the axe, download it while you can at www.winamp.com. It is free. VLC player can be found at www.videolan.org ;It is also free.
