A variety of bands, including Anti-Flag, will be boycotting shows put on by Pittsburgh promoter Brian Drusky after comments made over the weekend. Anti-Flag have posted a statement about their decision.
Through the cases of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and all those who have suffered at the hands of racism, police brutality and an unjust legal system, there is a loud and important public discourse. Based on recent actions, we feel that Brian Drusky, the owner of the company promoting our show in Pittsburgh, is on the wrong side of that conversation. For this reason we do not feel comfortable playing a show he’s promoting. Confronting bigotry and blind allegiance to power with education is...

Propagandhi have posted a new blog.
If you’re a fan of what we’ve done over the years, I really encourage you – like, as in grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-straight-into-your-eyes kinda thing — to check this stuff out and take it back to your spaces and get the discussion going in your own circles. We live in a misogynistic society. This stuff is pervasive. I guarantee you’re going to encounter it at some point if you haven’t already. Take it from someone who has learned the hard way, for everybody’s sake, you better have some idea how to respond.

I Am The Avalanche guitarist Brandon Swanson recently announced via Instagram that he is to play his final show with the band on December 26th.
Friends, this is going to be my final show with IATA. I'd love it if you could join us for for the show. I'm gonna have as much fun as possible, probably some beers and some tears. But lots of smiles and hugs as well. Hope to see you there. [...] Just to clear the air, I didn't get kicked out or anything. I feel very accomplished in the 10 years I spent recording records and touring the world with my brothers. It's just time for me to close this chapter so I can focus on other things I want to try my hand at in my life. Viva 2015! Love y'all.

Read my review and look at my photos from the final date of Slipknot's "Prepare for Hell" tour with Korn and King 810 on December 7 in Lowell, MA. The whole thing, I think, was sick.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't hesitate to call "Prepare for Hell" one of the best tours of the band's career. It says a lot that both Slipknot and Korn are still going strong, releasing interesting material and putting on such strong performances 15+ years later. The thousands of fans in attendance clearly loved it, and the late Gray would be proud to see his brothers carrying on his legacy with such reverence.

Buddy from Senses Fail posted a message on Facebook asking what it is that upsets people so much about him speaking out for LBGTQ rights.
What is it that upsets people so much about me (Buddy Nielsen) speaking up about LGBTQ rights? I am generally interested to hear what it is that bothers people so much about it? I identify as Queer and recently came out, I feel the need to raise awareness about the shame and silence I stayed in for 25 years. This is a band fronted by someone who is not straight. I cannot separate my music from internally who I am and am not willing to. The rights of other LGBTQ people are very important to me.

I don't want others to have to suffer the way I did....
