The Spill Canvas were burglarized in Orlando. They have setup a GoFundMe account.
Like most responsible musicians, we reported the incident to the police. We were banking on insurance to cover the loss but due to special circumstances our claim was denied. Something that's supposed to be there for us as, a fail safe, in times of need has...well, failed us. We find ourselves in a tough spot. As a band who's always worked hard for everything that we've got, it breaks our hearts to have to ask for help. But sometimes we need to humble ourselves and reach out to our support system to pick us back up. We're in a really difficult spot right now so if you could at all find it in your hearts to...

Noisey has posted an interview with Amanda Daniels, formerly of Enabler, about her abusive ex-boyfriend (and ex-bandmate) Jeff Lohrber.
Greg Thomas and Fall Out Boy drummer Andy Hurley originally quit at the end of our summer tour after having difficulties with Jeff. We were supposed to play one more show in Minneapolis, and I remember we had four or five of our own shows after that and we played Chicago. That night, Andy and Greg wanted to go back to Milwaukee after our set, and started loading out after our set. For some reason Jeff thought they were being giant assholes and threw a fit. I was inside selling merch, so I didn’t see any of it happening but I was told that he lost his...

We recently spoke with Dustin Kensrue about his long-awaited second solo album, Carry the Fire. Check it out here.
After so long, it was hard to pick where it was going to go. Originally, I had this other project I was thinking I was going to do as well. I was going to make the solo record a lot more stripped down, and it ended up feeling like it was too many things to juggle at one time. I combined some of the ideas that I had for this separate project into the more folky stuff and just let it be a mixture.

Grooveshark's co-founder Joshua Greenberg passed away in his home Sunday evening. He was 28.
His mother, Lori Greenberg, told the paper that her son was in good health and that police had found no visible injuries or signs of drug use. Moreover, the local police department confirmed in a tweet that there was no evidence of foul play or suicide. The medical examiner performed an autopsy Monday morning to determine any potential problems with Greenberg's heart and brain. A toxicology report is expected in two to three months.

At a recent show in Toronto, guitarist Jeff Beckman of 90s Canadian hardcore punk band Chokehold (A389 Records) punched a transgender woman over her opinions regarding the singer's thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. The band has prided itself on opposing gender discrimination, racism, sexism, police brutality and so on in their lyrics. The incident calls into question the authenticity of self-proclaimed socially conscious bands. Head to the replies to hear audio from the event.

Colorado punk group Elway is gearing up to release its third Red Scare full-length record on Friday so today we're giving you a little taste by premiering a new song, which also happens to be one of the best ones on that release. Instead of heading back to Chicago to work with Matt Allison the band decided to stay home in Fort Collins to capture a sound that's much more raw than what you hear on Leavetaking. If you like gruff vocals, catchy guitar riffs and depressingly upbeat songs then give "Lunatic Thirteens" a listen in the replies. If you like you can pre-order Better Whenever and don't forget to tell us what you think in the replies.

Ross Barber, writing for ElectricKiwi:
Well, for a start – BUY their music. Find out which method gives them the highest % of the profit. I will often send a message to an artist and ask them how they would prefer me to purchase their music. Some prefer Bandcamp as it gives them a higher % than iTunes. Some prefer iTunes as the chart visibility means more sales. Some prefer you buy their physical CDs directly from their website as they don’t need to pay a % to anybody.

You are the captain of the last remaining battleship in the fleet. A relentless, overwhelming enemy has emerged to abduct your people. There's no time to colonize planets, negotiate with alien races, or build an empire. You're outnumbered, out-gunned, and low on resources. Knowing when it's time to fight or flee will be the key to saving the human race.

Jamie Ludwig, writing for Noisey, on the bystander effect at live music events.
Jackie’s call to hold predators and bullies accountable for their actions—and to not place blame on passive bystanders—is important, compelling, and admirable. However, there’s also something to be said for people empowering themselves so that they have more tools at their disposal to get involved should they ever come across a person in the midst of threatening situation. In the music community, we owe it to ourselves to walk the walk and be proactive in watching out for one another.

It's apparently illegal to rip your CDs in the UK again.
In the wake of a challenge from the music industry, the UK's High Court has overturned regulation that allowed format shifting (such as ripping CDs and DVDs) for the sake of personal use. Supposedly, the government was in the wrong when it didn't implement compensation for copyright holders when you dumped those albums and movies on to your hard drive. Officials could reintroduce exceptions, but they'd have to take a different tack if they want these measures to survive.

I wanted clarify a few things in the press and express my gratitude to the fans who continue to stick by us in these trying times. I turned myself in and was not arrested. The alleged drug house in question was merely a medicinal marijuana facility. I speak not only for myself but on behalf of From Autumn To Ashes that we will make up the dates as soon as we possibly can. Thank you for the years of support and see you soon.
