I recently spoke with vocalist Chris Motionless of Motionless In White as part of their headlining tour. We spoke about the tour, their current record Reincarnate, and their upcoming tour with Slipknot this summer. You can read the interview here.
I think music is more of a therapeutic element to overcoming your problems, and at the end of the day it's you doing it. If we're helping you out, great, I'm glad that music in general can do that, because it's helped me, I've gotten over many things.

Andrew McMahon talks about closing the Jacks Mannequin chapter of his career on Already Heard.
It’s been great. It’s an interesting thing that I’ve always been one to hit the reset button when I felt that things were getting a little stale, or I needed some new inspiration. It gets a little bit more nerve-wracking when you get a bit older to hit that reset button because you don’t want to fuck up and have to claw your way back. But that said I feel it was such a worthy endeavour because it gave me the chance to really dig back into playing my piano. I think by the last Jack’s Mannequin record, I’d scaled back the piano so much. I really wanted to sit and focus and write great piano...

Paul Adler, writing over at Medium, has posted a piece looking at the sexual violence that has occured at Warped Tour.
But over the past half-decade, a handful of alt-scene, so-called “Warped Tour” bands have found themselves accused of sexual misconduct with minors. Musicians have been convicted of crimes, and other bands have been condemned for their apparent advocacy of physical and sexual violence, especially toward women. Of course, the bands and the tour are separate entities, and Warped isn’t legally responsible (moral responsibility is another matter) for the actions of its acts. Nonetheless, it’s tempting to let these scandals color the general perception of the tour. More...

American-French artist Allyson Ezell may not be a household name yet, but I have a feeling that's going to change very soon. With an indie pop style that brings to mind the likes of St. Vincent, Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Bjork, her new EP, The Ease of Remembering Sparks, is bound to gain a lot of attention. Head to the replies to hear it for yourself. The EP - the first in a trilogy that explores the shadows of the past - will be released on March 23rd via Universal Publishing.

The group behind Taking Back Tuesday are trying to trademark the phrase "emo night." Yeahhhh, good luck with that.
Their trademark claim, filed on February 4 by Petracca, is not a particularly strong one—using vague language about what exactly they’re seeking. “We booked and curated the artists for this event as Emo Night. Thats how people know it is us presenting the event,” reads the application, which was filed through LegalZoom. Along with their application, they submitted flyers to their event with their logo—the words Taking Back Tuesday (after the band Taking Back Sunday) over the Black Flag bars overlayed on the cover of Jimmy Eat World's Clarity.

It’s fairly likely that it...
