Chris: Further is my band, Dashboard is my band, and Twin Falls is my priority. Suzie: Our Narrative record is recorded. It’s not mixed or mastered yet. The Narrative has released three albums and a vinyl on our own, over the last five years. We’re not interested on rushing it. We want a team to help us for this. The Narrative stuff has been moving slow. These guys have things going on too. There will be plenty of time for both of these things to coexist. I’m so excited about The Narrative record.
It literally was just me, my drummer, a fill-in guitarist, a fill-in bassist, and we had just released the self-titled album. So everybody was like, “What the fuck is going on with these guys?” Shortly after that we were like, “We’ve got to start working on a new record.” Who’s going to be in the band? Who’s going to be on the record? We start working on it; we decided we’re going to get new management. Interscope at that point had already fired their whole rock department. So at first I was kind of bummed like,...
KD: Well they’re not… The Jesse one is a rock record and it’s like a ROCK record. More than anything I’ve ever worked on so far.
AH: Yeah it’s bloodthirsty. Sick. It is. I’ve only heard really bad sounding demos, but it’s a version of Kevin. It’s a version of him that’s kind of this punky, bloodthirsty, loud rock thing. And you can hear the Jesse influence. There’s this section that goes to half time in one of these songs that I really like. It was totally a momment...

PropertyOfZack has published a tell-all interview with John D on the downfall of Bamboozle with serious details of what went wrong, and in turn why Skate And Surf and GameChanger are coming back. Check it out here.
There was a falling out at Bamboozle. A really bad one. But it wasn’t with Live Nation as a company. It was with a few individuals at upper management. And the rumors are true. I F bombed them. I went in and told them to take their job and stick it as far up their asses as they could put it. I said that, because I had reached a point.
PropertyOfZack recently interviewed Ryan Rockwell of Mixtapes and confirmed that the band will be recording a new album this March. They also talked about a handful of bands within the scene. Read it all here.
POZ: More than guitar. Much more than you practice the guitar. Jason Tate would agree too.
Ryan: Does Jason Tate even know how to play guitar?

You can check out PropertyOfZack's recent interview with Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche) here. In the interview, Caruana revealed that a new IATA should be released in the fall. He also hints at possible Peace'd Out and more solo material releasing this calendar year.
I’m going to be focused on touring on this. But I am going to record an Avalanche record, and we anticipate seeing a fall release for the record. As far as Peaced Out goes, I know that Choi has been working on some new music already. Him and Roger will be going to the mountains to write and record the new Peaced Out. Going to keep moving. I’m not going to give it a break.
