AOL Music's MCS page says: "Come back here on Friday evening to watch exclusive behind-the-scenes episodes of Motion City Soundtrack creating their upcoming album Even If It Kills Me."

And here is a short desctiption of Karen, taken from
Is the snow always whiter on the other side of the street? Karen spends her day off catching up with some old friends, but it is the friend that she is about to meet that will change her bleak view of her world. Motion City Soundtrack frontman Justin Pierre recently put down his guitar and picked up a camera. The result was a 18 minute 16mm short he titled Karen. Justin is currently recording with Motion City Soundtrack and Cars frontman Rick Ocasek, but will be back behind the camera this spring when he co-directs the music video "Big Drag" for Limbeck. Justin is represented by the William Morris agency. Producer Shane Nelson became a producer/director to score chicks. For more information on Shane Nelson please visit

July 17, 2007 - Even If It Kills Me

YES! We have a release date and title for the new album! This is such exciting news. Motion City Soundtrack posted their first webisode today, and you can watch it at The webisode shows them working on their new album and Justin talks about writing lyrics. At the end the album name and release date is revealed. There is even a little bit of new material in it, so check it out!

In site news, I added a countdown to our homepage so you can countdown to the new album! Also, I decided to add a photo gallery to the site. Pictures are going to be a lot more organized now. All the live show photos and fan photos will now go in this gallery. I added a fan photos section for Beth photos too, so if you have one with her send it in and I'll upload it. If you have any pictures to contribute send them to and if you need credit be sure to include your name and I will write that you submitted them. Let me know what you think.

This contest has been going on for a few weeks, and the last day to enter is March 5th, so I thought I'd post it. Vans is giving away a pair of Vans customized by the band, and also autographed posters and CDs. Head over to the Vans website to enter. Goodluck!

Some things I have been pondering for this site are maybe adding a photo gallery and maybe having a media section where you all can submit wallpapers and icons and things like that. We'll see.... give me some feedback if ya want :)

Most of you know who MCS's merch girl Beth is by now (if not, you can check out our interview with her here). Well, her and Justin are going to be doing an advice podcast called 'Late Night with Peenytees and Roonytunes', probably launching in a few months. In the meantime, you can send them questions at It is going to be a webcast advice column, so you send them a question, and they'll give you their answer. Keep checking Beth's site for updates, the podcasts (when they begin) will be available there.
