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.

Beyoncé addressed the rumors over the weekend with an Instagram post, according to the Daily Mail, writing, "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."
Thomas Warwick, the musician’s lawyer, said his client had gotten into body building and eating healthy, and later began taking nutritional supplements as a paid product spokesman. At some point, he also began taking steroids, he said. “His thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use,” Warwick said.
In celebration of today's 10th anniversary of Silverstein's debut album, When Broken Is Easily Fixed, the band re-recorded "Smashed Into Pieces."
On May 20th, 2003 we released our very first album "When Broken Is Easily Fixed". 10 years ago we didn't know the extent that our lives would be changed through these songs and through all the experiences we've had since. We've grown so much as people, and also as musicians.
To celebrate the release and give back to our fans, we have re-recorded the lead track, the song that started it all, "Smashed In To Pieces". This is available free of charge to stream or download in multiple formats.
The idea for this project comes from my own personal experience of recording bands for years (and being recorded myself) both in and out of pro audio environments. There is a huge gap between the "we just formed a band and need a demo" level and the "I am an established artist ready to go into a real studio environment with a producer and record a full length album." There are very few options for entry level artists to produce examples of their work to shop around and get gigs, and thus they end up spending thousands of dollars to record a CD when they have not had a chance...

Okay, this is going to take a minute: Derrick from The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Dieposted a blog regarding the leak of his band's record, Whenever, If Ever. He explains why the band tried to get the leak taken down (tl;dr: because Topshelf Records didn't want the record online) but simultaneously does not seem to care if you download the leak. He also admits to oftentimes ripping records from Bandcamp if they aren't available for pay-what-you-want download and added this: Fuck, I leaked American Radass, that most recent Circle Takes the Square Record, the most recent mewithoutYou record, and even more recently a new Self Defense Family EP. The linked post...
