Former members of Save Ferrisare suing singer Monique Powell over allegations that she falsely promoted an upcoming show as a "Save Ferris Reunion" ... without the rest of the band's permission.
Former SF members Brian Mashburn, Eric Zamora, Bill Uechi, Brian Williams, and Evan Kilbourne have now filed a lawsuit against Powell -- insisting she has no right to perform under the Save Ferris name. The band wants her to pay unspecified damages for falsely promoting a reunion show. They also want a judge to block her from using the Save Ferris name ever again.

We’re off the label. We’re doing this all ourselves. We’re going to do everything ourselves. At this point, we’re not being looked at and have no offers. I don’t know if we would take an offer at this point. We’re in a cool position because we got a lot out of being on the label like good tours and a fan base. Now we have that to work with.
It's hard to believe that we are half way through 2013. Six months in the books and yet there is still no instance of this year slowly down with quality releases week after week. I'm unveiling my five most anticipated July releases a week early since next Monday we'll be highlighting the staff's mid-year Top 10 lists. This month's list was a little easier to put together than last months insane smorgasbord of amazing LPs, but that doesn't mean there's a shortage of great stuff releasing in July. Check out my list in the replies and feel free to discuss the albums you're anticipating next month.
According to a recent tweet from Bring Me The Horizon front man Oli Sykes, bands are no longer allowed to ask concert-goers to perform the wall of death or mosh anymore. An update provided to PropertyOfZack states that "according to insurance policies, bands must refrain from using the terms mentioned above" and that it "makes it easier for insurance companies to cover injured attendees of Warped Tour." So just don't move at these things anymore, okay?

Now, the Cali ska-punks have revealed the fourth cut off the EP: Fugazi’s “Cashout”. Speaking about the song choice and the faithful cover, Bandits guitarist Steve Choi said, “Fugazi is one of our biggest influences musically and ethically. We could easily do a whole album of Fugazi covers, but after going back and forth we settled on a later tune, this one being from the band’s last full length album The Argument.”
Night Dive (featuring members of Portugal. The Man, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Wild Orchid Children, Alligators, Time To Fly, Arper, The Divorce, Dawn Solaris, Map Of June, and Ships) have launched a Kickstarter to help fund their new multi-media project.
Night Dive is a collection of friends and musicians that grew up playing music with one another – sometimes in the same band, sometimes as members in the same thriving music scene. The connection shared by this group was unique, but it wasn't until this connection was removed several years back that it was fully realized just how unique it was. After playing music with other people, and replacing the time spent together...
