Visa problems have led Asking Alexandria to cancel two upcoming shows.
"We have spent the last few days doing everything we possibly can to make sure that these shows wouldn't be cancelled but at the end of the day the US government took far longer than anyone could have predicted giving Denis his visa which has left us no time to finish his visa process to enter the UK.

Riot Fest is moving from Humboldt Park to Douglas Park.
Recently, as evidenced in the media, there were those who attempted to divide the Humboldt Park community with unfair and unjust tactics that in no way represent the overwhelming majority of the 26th Ward residents and businesses. And while Riot Fest supporters stressed that without question, Riot Fest has done nothing short of showing their unparalleled devotion to the city and the neighborhood they called home, Riot Fest partners, Michael Petryshyn and Sean McKeough made the ethical decision not to allow the festival to be used as a pawn and removed Riot Fest from the conversation regarding the ever-changing face of Humboldt Park

Jay Cridlin, writing for the Tampa Bay Times, looks at the line-ups of major music festivals and its lack of big name rock band headliners.
Guitars have faded into the background of millennial music culture; rock no longer moves the needle like pop, hip-hop and even electronic dance music. When Pretty Lights (real name Derek Vincent Smith) was added to Big Guava's lineup in February, he immediately shot to the top line of the poster, leapfrogging rockers like Ryan Adams, Hozier and, yes, the Pixies.

The This is Hardcore festival has posted a statement about the festival's lack of women. I guess the tacit acknowledgement is better than Skate and Surf's current tactic. Festival coordinator Joe McKay posted a longer "venting" message on Facebook as well.
This is Hardcore has recently been called out for not having enough women in the bands in this year’s line-up. We recognize that there is an issue with women being valued and given visibility in the hardcore music scene. The TIHC team is mostly made up of women, who work tirelessly to put on the fest every year.

To celebrate, the band will perform the album in its entirety at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 19; pre-sale starts today, with general public on-sale beginning Friday at this link.
