StatementBoySetsFire has been a band for nearly two decades. In that time we have played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch us, from basements to festival audiences. We lived through the terror of rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. We were around before the internet. Truth. We made demo tapes. We have recorded 4 LPs, EPs, CDs, and even a Cassingle. We have played Rookie over 1,000 times. We have fallen off more stages than most people have stood on. We have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped....

StatementJames here, I come baring bittersweet news. I'm stepping down from Oh Sleeper early next year after our Australia/New Zealand tour. After nearly 7 years, 3 records, an EP, countless tours and endless memories, I'm ready to move on. I'll be forever grateful for the support of our fans. Thank you for everything you've done for us that made this dream a reality. I never deserved this. If I've left any mark on your lives I hope it's this: Never give up on your dreams because they really can come true if work hard and pursue them with everything you've got.

Gwar have announced Pustulus Maximus as their new lead guitarist. Read the awesome press release below.
Press ReleaseIt was a little less than a year ago that the world was rocked by the passing of Flattus Maximus, back to the cosmos from whence he came. And since that day fans of GWAR have wondered how the mighty overlords of GWAR would deal with the void it left within the band. GWAR responded the only way they knew how-by soldiering on-and continued to play as a four-piece. But from the very beginning of that phase, the quest began to find the new Scumdog that was in every way as magnificent as his predecessor.

Today the members of GWAR are pleased to inform their legions of...

Living With Lions will continue on as a four piece and Chase Brenneman will be the band's new vocalist.
From ChaseOver the last few months there's been a lot of people asking us, who is going to be singing for the band as we move forward? We figured it was time to answer the question, for those of you who are interested. I'm going to draw up a bit of a back story, so for anyone who doesn't care and just wants to know who it's going to be, skip to the end.

Rachel's BlogCall it whatever you will. The body is just a vessel for the soul that dwells within. I feel as though He Is We has been this body for me. This body has helped me grow and learn so much about this world we live in. But like other bodies, this one has began to die. It has become unhealthy and detrimental to my passion. I have been fighting to keep the name and stick it out. Through this, I have lost my drive to write. I have been hindered and in a constant battle with myself. But today it hit me.
