Rou Reynolds of Enter Shikari has posted a response to the video that appeared of him throwing punches at a fan that apparently "groped" him during a show in the UK. Full thing is in the replies.
I defy anyone to have their scrotum grabbed and not lash out instinctively...
Obviously violence is never the answer and I'm very unhappy personally with how I acted. I should have left the crowd and headed back to stage immediately when this started happening but due to the density of the crowd and the intensity of the situation things played out differently, I'm only human.
As Summer 2014 ended, Anacortes, WA indie-rockers, The Lonely Forest, played their final show. This farewell concert at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music Festival marked the theoretical end of The Lonely Forest. Guitarist, Tony Ruland, did not sit idly by. After sorting through a pile of micro cassette recordings he’d made over the last handful of years, Tony decided it was finally time to do something with them. He needed help, so he called up Erik Walters (Silver Torches) and Kyle Holland (Cumulus), and thus,...
The publicist who pitched me on this premiere started his email by asking me if I got a follow from Melissa Joan Hart on Twitter. I did! She sure followed lots of people. Being reminded of one of my most recent followers put me in a great mood, but I wasn't necessarily expecting to be as gripped as I was by Take One Car's "In The Wind." The band, which is from Upstate New York and which has independently released two full-length albums, is teaming up with Broken World Media for the release of their third effort, Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now, on March 31. You can stream "In The Wind" in the replies, where you'll also find the album art and tracklisting, and you should listen to it...

Club premiere), and you can find pre-orders for their new album Bad Year over in the Lame-O Records webstore. The album drops April 7.
Taking Back Sunday kicked off their latest tour with letlive. and The Menzingers last week. Their stop in Austin was a sold-out, non-stop party. I've grown a little bit jaded by the number of Taking Back Sunday sets I've seen at this point (#humblebrag), but each show is always just as energetic as the last. Catch a few photos from the show in the replies, as well as a link to a full gallery on our Facebook page.
Megan Seling, writing for the Nashville Scene, takes a look at how summer festivals in our music scene are handling representation. Some are clearly doing better than others -- some barely look like they're trying.
Male musicians, if you're finding yourselves on lineups where women are so grossly underrepresented, ask the promoter why that is. Ask to include more female musicians in your shows and tours. Prove to festivals that women deserve more than 2 percent or, worse, to only get attention when magazines and festivals produce shit like "Hottest Chicks of Hard Rock"or "Girls Only" stages. I'm goddamn tired of female musicians being treated like lesser humans or tokens in the music...
"The way I see it a song is never completely finished. Re-imagined and evolved with each performance”, vocalist Christofer Drew explains. “This album is a revamp of some of my favorite NSN songs throughout the years."
