Black Flag are reforming with frontman Ron Reyes. They'll be playing this year's Hevy Fest in August. It's billed as their only UK appearance of the year, which hopefully means we'll be seeing them stateside.

From BrianI’m working on a lot of things, it’s been a while, I apologize. I’ve had some really amazing things happen and some really terrible things in the last couple months. I’m definitely on a new page, and I have to start there. So, I’m going to make a record by myself, hopefully sometime this year. I’ve just started to work on these songs now, as well as new Gaslight Anthem songs for our next record.

I’ve learned there’s too much to be done and not a lot of time to do it in. Things can...

Brian of I Fight Dragons has posted an interesting video of how painful and enduring the music industry can be at times. The video showcases a song that he wrote entitled "Lies In Stereo" which then, wasn't up to their label's standards. So throughout a year and a half, the label brought in 7.5 different writers and Brian recorded over 18 versions of the song, just so the song could never see the light of day. You can check out the video explaining the whole situation and the progression of the song in the replies.
