The drummer of As Cities Burn has posted a blog concerning the backlash to their new song.
The most reasonable response I can come up with is kind of a "WTF did you expect?". Has As Cities Burn ever put out music that wasn't drastically different than a previous release? We change our band every time we get together. It's incredibly freeing. CNS was a product of wanting to break the chains of the HXC world and write music that could get us on tour with Jimmy Eat World. Going into HOHW, we pretty much knew we weren't going to be a band anymore so we said fuck it and LITERALLY wrote whatever we wanted. This included writing a song that we thought sounded like Tom Petty and then...

Photographer Matt Vogel has posted two excellent blogs on his website about how to excel as a music photographer. Check out "My Workflow: How To Stay Sane as a Music Photographer" and "How To Create Value For Yourself as a Music Photographer" over on his website.
There are thousands of aspiring music photographers out there and standing out from the crowd isn't easy. This isn't a tell-all blog post for how to become successful but I wanted to share a few things that helped me get to a place where the bands I work for see me as a valuable asset of their team.

Jake Luhrs, lead vocalist of August Burns Red, has written a blog about Ferguson and the Christian church, which you can read over at HeartSupport.
The problem is that many of the comments on the civil rights issues being raised that we’ve seen from white “self proclaimed Christians” is one of back-biting, snide comments, and pointing to statistics on crime within the African-American community as opposed to getting to understand their brothers and sisters in Christ’s perspective and exactly why and how they’re hurting. Many don’t understand the systemic injustice and profiling that can happen to our brothers and sisters simply because of the color of their skin. And it’s because they’ve...

Ben Weasel has written an open letter to Fat Mike about punching fans. Full thing is in the replies.
You and I both know this sort of thing barely registered a blip on the radar in punk not so long ago, but times have changed, my friend. It’s a brave new world, and you and I are a couple of dinosaurs, lumbering around, knocking into shit and making a nuisance of ourselves. The kids are not pleased. But not to worry – your PR expert Ben Weasel is here to save the day for you!

First, apologize. I know – you’ve done it. Not good enough. You need to apologize again. And again. And again. You need to keep apologizing for the rest of your life. People who had nothing to do with the...

Bring Me the Horizon have responded to the criticism of their new song "Don't Look Down."
We appreciate the level of passion both good and bad for DLD. We are really proud of what we created, but at the same time, we understand peoples confusion and panic after hearing the track. We were approached by radio one to score a piece of music for a rescore of the movie Drive. Now if you’ve seen Drive i’m sure you will agree neither anything from our previous albums, nor drown would of fit very well with the vibe of that particular movie, so we decided to create a piece of music that did justice to the amazing scene we was given. we took the opportunity to make something completely different,...
