Hit the replies to hear the song "Mountain" from HalfNoise -- the project created by Zac Farro, formerly of Paramore.
As many of you may know, I am usually a drummer. But a few years ago I decided to see what writing and recording my own music would be like, HalfNoise. I made an EP in my house with a producer (Daniel James) and did a bit of touring. However it wasn't until I played a few shows in New Zealand and spent a few months there that I really realised my passion. In August of 2013, I went back to New Zealand and spent 7 months writing and recording the new HalfNoise album with my friend (producer) Daniel James. I wanted to experience life somewhere other than Nashville, Tenn and...

Cessna's finance corp says the rocker is $782,422.16 in the hole to them ... according to a lawsuit filed this week, and obtained by TMZ. Holland's fly guy issues date back to 2007 when ... according to the docs ... he financed a plane, but eventually had trouble making the payments. Cessna claims it struck a deal with Holland: He sold the aircraft privately, gave those funds to Cessna ... and they gave him until 2017 to pay off the remaining balance. He also had to put up 2 other planes he owns as collateral.

Okay! So here i am with another important Song Shop update. If i can ask you not to skim this email, and that would be a awesome. A lot of people have been letting me know they’ve been getting their songs and that they’re very moved by them. I cannot affirm enough how freakin’ awesome that is, so thank you and please do so when you get your song. It always makes my day/night. Others have been expressing how excited they are to get their song; thank you so so so much for your patience so far. It is invaluable and essential to Song Shop being a thing.
More importantly, I wanted to address something and am slightly nervous to do...
“Once something gets on the Internet, it works its way into people’s lives in a way that I think is pretty powerful. For a gay kid in Jamaica to see the actor who played Spider-Man in that role is pretty damn powerful, in my opinion. … There was just so much thought and love that went into the video I don’t personally see it as negative.”

Most of the gear, including the van, I bought from sleeping on my floor for 6 months while renting my room on airbnb and working full time at a Japanese restaurant. Danny incurred about 10k in debt buying recording equipment to finish the Mason Avery (His other project) record over the past 6 years that is now lost, as the four copies of mixes are on harddrives/computers/laptops in the van. Luckily, the Go Deep record is backed up in LA. We are feeling generally sick after pushing so hard to make music happen in our lives. If you want to help out, hit us on the paypal. Everything helps, and it will go directly to getting us back to being...
Saosin have announced a Chain Reaction show ... tickets only available in person.
So here's the deal. We're adding a chain reaction show on June 5th. But tickets are only going to be available for purchase in-person (no online) and at various, yet to be announced locations. (Not at the chain box office!) There will be a two ticket max per person and you'll need to present ID at point of purchase and at the door. Ya I know it totally sucks, we get it. But !!! We really wanted to make this smaller venue special for those who actually want to share it with us, And not for the scalpers who want to go live on StubHub . No one should be paying the prices some of these dickheads are selling...
