hey talked about the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Reign in Blood album, the chemistry he and Tom Araya have with Paul Bostaph and Gary Holt, the feedback they’re getting on the new music, the statements recently made by Mayhem Fest co-founder, Kevin Lyman, and more. Kerry was also cool enough to answer some questions from a few Southeast Michigan fans.
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.

I adore this song. That about sums up my feelings on Twinsmith's "Said and Done" for which we're premiering the official video (below) today. It's like the band decided to check every box on the "summer anthem" list and make an irresistible tune. The feel and atmosphere of the video could not bring the song to life any more perfectly - it's youthful, fun and intriguing. Much like the single, their new album Alligator Years, is the kind of indie-rock you want to listen to continuously in this beautiful weather. Luckily, the record is now out on Saddle Creek Records, so go give that a spin after the video. Enjoy.

Last month we premiered the new Well Kept Things EP, Homegrown, which is out now via Antique Records. Today we are debuting the new video for "Great White North." The vocals on this track really remind me of what I loved about Just Surrender, so definitely give it a watch below. If you're liking the song, be sure to grab the EP.
Last night I had the pleasure of watching Bon Iver close out the inaugural Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival. During the set, the band performed not one but two new songs, which you can watch fan-shot video of in the replies. There was no formal confirmation from Justin Vernon regarding an upcoming album, however.
This kind of behavior is heightened in the pop-punk and emo scenes — a world that’s typically uninviting to female musicians. Men are on stage, and young women are off it, in this realm created by boys for girls — to impress or seduce them. When you have one of the scene’s most widely accessible institutions, Warped Tour, encouraging sympathy for men who take advantage of their young, emotional female fans, it speaks volumes about where the power lies. Because of the genre’s history of guys on stage/girls in the crowd, aspirations of groupiedom remain intact for these historically disrespected female fans. This is especially sad when you consider...
It's been a busy time for Veil of Maya - they've recently released their new album Matriarch, and are about to head out on the Summer Slaughter tour, featuring headliner Arch Enemy. Today, we're excited to be giving away two autographed copies of the album to users. The album's entire track listing is inspired by strong female characters across various forms of media. To enter, state three specific titles/references that inspired the track listing (for instance, "Mikasa" was inspired by the anime Attack on Titan), and we'll pick a couple winners shortly.
Accordingtolots of postsonTwitter, and multiple sources, Slaves were asked not to play Warped Tour over the past few days. What led to this is still unclear and I've been unable to confirm for how long they'll not be playing.
We want to do a record, that’s the plan. But it’s taking forever. We released this song because we felt good about it immediately. It was one of the first one or two songs we finished, so we were like, ‘If we wait on this it might be another year, year-and-a-half. Why don’t we just put it out and see what happens?
