Bonfires have released their new EP and announce the departure of their lead singer. We discuss some of the insider baseball stuff surrounding this on this week's podcast.
After careful thought and a lot of internal conversation, our vocalist Zech Pluister will be stepping away from his role in Bonfires. This may come across as a sudden decision to our fans, but itís an important decision for us to make, and we want to be as transparent as we can about it in order to keep the band moving on.

With that said, we recorded an EP called "The Way This Ends" over the summer. This development threw a wrench in our plans to release the record early next year, so, in cooperation with Bad...

Martin Shrkeli's had quite a year, from marking up cancer drug prices to buying Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-a-kind Once Upon A Time In Shaolin to then telling the group to "show some f**king respect." But he'll be heading into the new year with his tail firmly planted between his legs, as he's been arrested for fraud.
The investigation, in which Mr. Shkreli has been charged with securities fraud, is related to his time as a hedge fund manager and running the biopharmaceutical company Retrophin ó not the price-gouging controversy that has swirled around him.

Today, we're exclusively streaming the brand new album from Before Their Eyes, Midwest Modesty, out 12/18 via InVogue Records. The record was co-written and produced by Craig Owens (Chiodos, D.R.U.G.S.), establishing itself to be one of the best post-hardcore records of the waning months of the year. The band has really come a long way in the last decade, and if you're a fan of the genre, you should find it absolutely necessary to give this album a chance. On a personal note, I'd recommend the track "The Positive and Negative Of Being Alone". If you like what you hear, you can pick it up here.

Jonathan Diener, interviewed by Safer Scene:
Iíve toured for close to a decade and Iíve definitely seen different types of harassment and discrimination over the years. Sometimes itís a security guard thinking a female member of a band is trying to sneak into the show or is just someoneís girlfriend, which happens often unfortunately. Iíve seen a lot of people get into arguments and physical altercations. Whether itís the venue staff and a band, fans with each other, band members with each other or any variation of the three, Iíve seen it go down.
