Slipknot bassist Alex Venturella passed out during the band's show in Connecticut last night due to severe dehydration. He was rushed to the hospital, where he recuperated overnight, and he will be back with the band at tomorrow's show in Mansfiled, MA.
After a medical emergency during last night's show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex 'V-Man' Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his ...
Fresh off the heels of last year's underappreciated Alex I Am Nothing, Museum Mouth are gearing up to release a split with indie rock band Naked Naps. The band's messy, lo-fi punk-ish styles fit together well, as fans of one should find a lot to like in the other. If you're not familiar with either...imagine a Dikembe meets Joyce Manor meets Cloud Nothings sort of thing, except that it makes more sense than that description probably did. Today we're lucky to premiere one of Museum Mouth's tracks, "Wave Emoji," which can be streamed in the replies. If you like that, preorder the split via Too Far Gone.
PropertyOfZack is shutting down. Zack has written up a post about the decision to bring his website, and his two podcasts, to a close. The website will be featuring articles over the next week as it winds down.
My life is in a period of deep change and instead of risking integrity, happiness, or feeling guilt - I would rather PropertyOfZack say goodbye the right way. Timing is everything, after all. I haven’t looked at our traffic in many months, but I appreciate the dedicated daily, weekly, or monthly readers of the site now more than ever. I’d rather bid you a proper farewell than a lackluster finale. Burn out, not fade away.
Over the 15+ years I've been writing about music on the...

"The reason 'Detox' didn't come out was because I didn't like it," he said. "I don't think I did a good enough job, and I couldn't do that to my fans, and I couldn't do that to myself, to be perfectly honest with you. I just wasn't feeling it."

Tom Alderson, drummer of Philadelphia, PA hardcore band Crosscheck, was badly injured Sunday night and is currently hospitalized. A GoFundMe page has been set up.
Our good friend, Tom Alderson, has experienced many heavy burdens recently, but more-so now than ever he needs our help. Sunday night, Tom suffered an incredible amount of physical injury and trauma to his head and other parts of his body. Currently hospitalized, he is going to be spending his 24th birthday laid up in a hospital room hooked to machines and barely being able to do much of anything for himself on his own. The injuries he has sustained are so severe, that they will be keeping him out of work for an undetermined...
Nina Corcoran wrote a great piece on Elliott Smith's self-titled album, which turned 20 this month, for Consequence of Sound. It's a fantastic read about the record, with interviews from many people involved with its release -- Mary Lou Lord, the founder of Kill Rock Stars, the director of Heaven Adores You, and Heatmiser.
His music is personal, and Elliott Smith capitalizes on that more than any other album in his discography. That’s what Smith’s self-titled album was when it was released in 1995, and that’s what it is 20 years later: an album to the listener, for the listener, from someone willing to listen. Elliott Smith is the secret you came across and cling to your heart,...
Billboard has posted an article on that whole Slaves being booted off Warped thing.
"When I booked him, my first question was, 'Is Jonny sober?'" Lyman tells Billboard via email, expressing concern over past problems Craig (who also fronts Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa) had with drugs and alcohol. Craig admits he was drinking with his bandmates when the harrassment occurred.
Better Off, the band that released the criminally underrated (I Think) I'm Leaving in 2013, will release a sophomore LP titled Milk via Equal Vision on September 11. The album's first single, "Whatever, I Don't Care" is streaming in the replies, and Milk can be pre-ordered on the Internet (here, specifically). Imagine the state of affairs of your mailbox if you could pre-order a bundle with a carton of milk, hahaha!
I really don’t know. I can tell you what I do know though… He started in on rock and roll early. He was five years old when he asked for the AC/DC album Back in Black. At the time I was pretty naive about hard rock or punk rock and when I heard the record I was shocked. Why would my sweet child want to listen to this kind of music… the lyrics clearly suggested killing your mother. Of course they didn’t suggest that… but that’s what it sounded like to me. What happened to those days of Mr. Moon? I didn’t get it… and that was pretty much the beginning of not getting it for quite a long time.
Remember the video we posted yesterday of 1,000 Foo Fighters fans covering "Learn to Fly" together in Italy? Well, Dave Grohl has responded (in Italian). Hit the replies to see the video and read a brief translation.
