R.I.P. Jeff! Festivals cancelled: ROCK AM SEE (GER) takes a break in 2013 "lacking attractive headliners"; BURNING SEA in Croatia had to succumb to a new tax regulation; yet purchased BS-tickets can also be used to visit METALDAYS in Slowenia.

Atticus is the band of clothing of Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge of Blink 182. And while some of you are now undoubtedly have impending doom in mind, in a time when punk rockers own their own clothing label, others adjust to it and listen to „Dragging The Lake 3“. And it's worth it. A lot of names that are quite well-known if you like emo or punk, are represented: Blink 182 are of course among them, also Taking Back Sunday, Funeral For A Friend, Alexis on Fire and Rise Against. But there are also some newcomers who get a chance to present themselves on this album. The ones that stick out especially, are Lydia with „Smile You’ve Won“ and Bedouin Soundclash with a reggae!!!! song by the name of "The Night Feels My Song". „Dragging The Lake 3“ offers an exciting and varied compilation and you can't really go wrong at a price of 10 Euro's for 24 tracks.
