Hey everyone,

This is Scott Heisel, AP's music editor. This is a big day for all of us at AP, because we've released our first-ever compilation, Press Play Vol. 1: Back To School. This CD has been in the works for over a year, and we hand-picked the bands (which is partially why it took so long -- lots of arguing!). The CD is available everywhere starting today, but your best bet is to snag it at either Hot Topic or Target, as both stores should have the CD on prominent display. But no matter where you go to pick it up, if you don't see it, ask someone where it is and make sure they get it out there -- we seriously really appreciate this!

If you're wondering what you'll get on the CD, check the tracklisting below, but let me break it down:

  • Exclusive songs from the Used, As Tall As Lions, Hit The Lights and Gallows (covering Hot Snakes) -- these are found nowhere else!
  • Electronic remixes from Paramore and the Matches -- get your dance party on!
  • B-sides/rarities from Gym Class Heroes, Say Anything and Sparta -- no need to download these illegally and get sued by the RIAA, we got 'em for you!
  • Live tracks from Panic! At The Disco, Cute Is What We Aim For and Head Automatica -- it's the next best thing to being at the show!
  • Acoustic renditions by Bayside and Envy On The Coast -- perfect to mellow out to!
  • Previously released (but still awesome) songs from Chiodos, Every Time I Die and the Dillinger Escape Plan -- these are some of the AP staff's favorite songs, so we hope you dig!

    You can hear clips of the Panic! At The Disco, Gallows, Matches and Envy On The Coast songs if you click the banner below. We really hope you all check this compiltion out, as we put a lot of time and effort into it, and it was all done for you, our awesome readership. And if you buy it, let us know what you think about it!
