We are super bummed to announce that we have to cancel the shows we had scheduled for March. Wetzel slipped and fell, which tore the cartilage in his already injured left knee. We are very disappointed, but we’re sure you are used to the amazing luck we have as a band. We love you all and promise to make it up to you on our spring headliner!
i've spent many years touring with my chemical romance as their keyboard player and over those years i realized that i am without a doubt, a silly person, i write silly music, say silly things, i generally have a very absurd look on life. Reggie, is how i share that silliness with all of you. I've always been honest with my music. Whatever goes on in my life i write music about.
Elano Pizzicarola of LA Weekly,makes the argument that Green Day never sold out, we (the fans) just all got old. Personally, I don't give a shit if a band sells out or whatever (that term stopped meaning anything to most of us years ago), as long as they're making music I like listening to. And well, it's no secret that I think the last three Green Day albums embarass the band's catalog.
They continued to flex their punk muscle even more recently. In 2009, they ripped though a live version of "American Idiot" on Good Day America before a Central Park audience. The band ignited a mosh pit and got the rollicking crowd to chant some of their profane lyrics. Green Day basically gave the...
Mr Watkins furiously denies all of the charges and allegations made. He intends to fight to the bitter end to clear his name. He wishes to thank the fans, family and friends for the constant love and support they have given and continue to give throughout this testing time.
Something happened, though. Record Store Day got big. It became an event. Major labels and mega-successful bands—who were in on the “holiday” from the start—began to play a larger and larger part. The grassroots veneer fell away, and it became more transparent: It had always been a way to herd consumers into stores, devised by an industry that keeps clinging to outmoded models of the past rather than learning to innovate and adapt to new technologies.
One of the very first songs I learned on guitar was Otis Redding’s ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,’ taught to me by the same fella who taught me some of the first standard chords I have ever learned, some 25 to 26 years ago. Mr. Roy Ridenour, one of my dad’s buds, used to come over for dinner and pick his guitar with anything from bluegrass to blues to old soul and folk tunes. Wherever you are Roy, thanks for all your patience and positive words that kept me from giving up!

Another week, another deluge of album sales numbers for us geeks. Luke Bryan is topping the charts this week after moving close to 150k copies of his new album Spring Break ... Here To Party. The man, Jimi Hendrix, comes in at number two by selling 73k copies of People Hell and Angels, which if you don't own -- you need to check out.

Today, we have two exclusive videos of Senses Fail talking about the songs on its upcoming album, Renacer. In the replies, you can watch Buddy and Dan go behind the scenes of "Mi Amor" and "Closure/Rebirth." Remember, the band's new album hits stores on March 26th. You'll be able to catch the remaining videos on PureVolume, PropertyOfZack, and Punk News.
I am angry all the time. It is not an anger that manifests itself in destruction of property, and I am not looking for a fight, but if you have a sense of right and wrong, and your head is pulled out, there is a lot to be angry about. If you think everything is ok, then to me you're ok with everything, from marriage inequality to people trying to vote down the Violence Against Women Act. You can't let these cowards get away with this stuff.

The band are in the middle of a UK tour right now, dates are also below.
Norma Jean have completed tracking their new album. The effort will be released in June via Razor & Tie Records.
We had a lot of fun writing this record. We moved our space to a secluded area and wrote off and on for about two years. We really pushed ourselves to do something really different while expanding on what we've done in the past. We also slapped some old school classic Norma Jean nastiness on it. We really struggled between wanting to have the fastest songs we've ever written to having the most groove driven songs, so the record is about half and half. We originally thought we would have been in and out of the studio by February 2012. We set the bar really high and once that...
