Fast Astronaut (ex-The Dear Hunter) is looking for another member to join the band. They're looking for a bassist that can sing, but are open to other submissions as well. They're also based out of Nashville, Tennessee. So if you fit all of those things, send them over an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stream the band's new EP in the replies.
Very sad to announce that Feb 7th at the University of Wyoming was my final show performing as the drummer of Kingsfoil. Due to scheduling conflicts in the coming months, the guys in the band decided to replace me as the drummer a few weeks ago. Although I'm sad about not being a part of the band, I understand their decision and support them moving forward!
I want to thank all my fans and the fans of Kingsfoil for supporting me while I got to live out one of my dreams. Playing drums in a touring rock band was incredible, and I will remember the times I was lucky enough to experience forever!
In the autumn of 2012 we made a decision as a band to put things on hold, as many of us had other commitments in our lives that needed to take priority. Almost two years on, for the most part now settled in where we want to be, it feels like there is space for change. When we put out the hiatus statement, we genuinely thought we were going to be away for quite a while, and we didn't see any chance of having free time to do anything other than focus on our professional lives. We're glad that this is not the case. We are really excited to say that Basement will be playing shows this summer, and we’re looking forward to...
It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future. It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future...
Three members of Quiet Out Loud have quit the band according to a blog post by ex-member Matt Lillie. I know what you're thinking, "who the fuck are these guys and why do I care?" Well, I'm with you ... I'm only posting it because someonethreatened to sue Zack for this same post and well, fuck that.
Then he proceeded to threaten me with physical violence while to claim everything as his own when the rest of the band including myself decided to go on with the show with a fill in. So that we didn’t hurt the bands reputation or let down fans. (picture below). Now last time I check a “good mature 28 year old man” doesn’t do this type of stuff. Also over the past few days he has proceeded...
In a Facebook post, Black Flag singer Ron Reyes says that during the band's Nov. 24 show he was effectively fired mid-set.
On November 24th 2013 the last night of the Australian Hits and Pits tour with two songs left in the set Mike V comes on stage stares me down, takes my mic and says "You're done, party's over get off it's over..." He said something else to me but it was a lie so I won't repeat it here. So with a sense of great relief that it was finally over I left the stage and walked to the hotel room. They finished the set with Mike V on vocals. There is much more that can and perhaps should be said. But for now I will spare you the gory details. The writing was on the wall since...
Soooooooo, the newest DGD album was the end of the current contract with Rise, that might give you an idea as to Secret band's delay, also we added Martin Bianchini to our lineup on guitar, he played some guest guitar on the DGD song "the jiggler," we also added Jordan Mccoy on bass, who has toured in DGD on bass before...
Unfortunately my time with The bunny the bear has come to an end, but fret not! You will be seeing the return of the old bear! to all the people I've had the pleasure to meet, you were all fantastic and I consider you all family! Till next time, seacrest out!
The Company We Keep vocalist Haden Brightwell will not be touring with the band; TCWK will perform their 11/14 - 11/16 dates with a replacement vocalist, and has dropped all other tour dates. A statement from guitarist Brian Southall is below, with another expected in the coming weeks.
Branden & I wanted nothing more than to spend these next few weeks on stage playing our new album for anyone that would listen, but now that will not be possible. Unfortunately, Haden informed us last week that she will be unable to join us on this tour. Her reasons are not ours to share. Our friend Kara Dupuy has offered to help us out during this time so that we can at least perform at our 2 Album...
I'm very proud to announce that I'm the newest addition to the band Legend. I will be lead guitar/principal songwriter and I couldn’t be more excited. I have continued writing material as always, searching for someone with a huge voice to carry my music. Upon brainstorming I almost shit my pants when I imagined Chad Ruhlig’s voice over my riffs! I got in touch with him to sing on some of my songs for fun and he threw the idea out to just be in Legend. Being a fan of The Pale Horse record, I accepted the invitation and here we are today...
All Shall Perish bassist Mike Tiner spoke with Metal Injection about how Suicide Silence's management basically gave the band no choice but to fire their former vocalist Eddie Hermida, who was then announced as the new vocalist of Suicide Silence a short time later.
Suicide Silence's management informed us of all of the things All Shall Perish would and would not be "allowed" to do. All Shall Perish could not play a show until Eddie was well "established" as the new singer of Suicide Silence. Suicide Silence's management told us that they would have to be well into their new album and touring cycle before All Shall Perish could be seen again with Eddie," Tiner told Metal Injection.
Kyle Even has left Breathe Carolina. The band made the announcement in a a video that can be watched in the replies. The band also announced that they would be releasing a new album titled Savages in 2014.
Suicide Silence is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Hermida to the family. Many of you may be familiar with Eddie through his work with All Shall Perish. For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006. Mitch & Eddie remained long-time friends and we felt that if the band were to continue it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an...
This past weekend after a band discussion we asked Marcus and Delia to leave Dowsing. It was neither an easy decision nor one that was met with enthusiasm. In order to move forward as a band we needed to address issues that are not worth repeating on the Internet.
Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Will Swan, A Lot Like Birds drummer Joseph Arrington and bassist Michael Littlefield, Hail The Sun vocalist Donovan Melero, and Stolas guitarist Sergio Medina have formed a new band: Sianvar (pronounced sea-en-var). The band is writing in Sacramento, prepping 5 songs to record with producer Josh Benton (Secret Band, Hail The Sun), to be released as soon as they can. The band is yet to determine whether the EP will be a self-release or label release.
We have decided to part ways with Bradley Walden. This is not a total disbandment. There needed to be a change within the group and letting him go is more than a positive one. We apologize to any of our fans who showed their love and support with the previous line up. The last thing we wanted to do was let our fans down. It’s just a change that needed to happen. We wish Bradley the best in all future endeavors.
Our brother and band mate Michael Mcdermott has decided to leave the band to pursue other musical interests. It has been an amazing 13 and a half years. We love you and wish you all the best! Here's to the memories! We don't know what's next (we never have!) but we know its gonna be rad! Onto the future!
During The Amity Affliction's set at Warped Tour in Portland a few days ago, the band's drummer sustained an injury while performing. A piece of his drumstick chipped off going right into his cornea which caused a cut and required immediate eye surgery. The band did not perform at today's Warped Tour set in San Diego however they are expected to return in Pomona tomorrow. Chad from Glass Cloud will fill in behind the kit for the rest of the tour. We wish Ryan from The Amity Affliction a speedy recovery.
It is with excitement and zero negativity that Massachusetts' based, The Acacia Strain announce the addition of two new full time members, Devin Shidaker and Richard Gomez, both on guitar. After many years of service, Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz will no longer be writing music for The Acacia Strain and we wish him the best in all of his future endeavors.
As a band who tours, it is very unfair to have people who have stuck by us and tell them that they have no say or can't be an active participant. (Thank you for life Tony Diaz).
As a band, our perspective is for all of us to be involved and be a...
"Paul's a great drummer and a good friend, and we're very happy that he's decided to rejoin the band," said Tom Araya. "We're still pretty numb from the loss of Jeff, but we don't want to disappoint our European fans, and we need to begin moving forward... having Paul back in the band makes that a whole lot easier."
"I'm very excited to be rejoining Slayer," added Bostaph. "We spent a very intense ten years of our lives together, had a lot of fun, made a lot of great music, so for me, this feels like coming home."
Well, if you havent noticed, i havent played a show with the acacia strain in years and ive just been writing the music for them. Ive been informed today that they will continue on without me, meaning shows and writing albums. This is totally understandable and i wish the band the best. I'll be around, as im still recording and producing and also have another project in the works.
