Our current plans are very few and will likely remain that way for a while. Donít read into it. Donít think itís something itís not. This Spring we will be playing eight shows in the United States. Farewell for now.

Tyler ĎScoutí Acord has left Issues. A full statement from Scout can be found here.
The problem with doing something that your heart isnít fully committed to though, is it wears off real quick. I started to become envious of every other band member living out their dreams playing what they were passionate about, getting better at their craft, all the while I was showing up for work every day. It got to the point where my least favorite part of the day was getting on stage, which is pretty ass backwards to the point of playing music for a living.

If you're looking for a great metal record, iTunes is offering Miss May I's latest record Deathless for only $5.99. I suggest picking it up and then watching them kick ass on Parkway Drive's current U.S. headliner - that is, if your city isn't already sold out.

Update: I talked to some people involved and they let me know this was said back and forth in a playful and joking manner online. Aaron's full statement can be read here. - Jason

Add this one to the rumor mill and the he said/she said mill while you're at it: Apparently Aaron Melzer quit Secrets because he claims Rise Records wasn't paying him.

Lynn Gunn of PVRIS talks with Fuse.
"I think a lot of people are trying to accept themselves and come to terms with it because it's still a pretty big thing right now. I never had someone to look up to and be like 'oh that person is OK and they're gay.í If I can be that for someone then it's why I'm open about it.Ē

Per Billboard, BMG has purchased Rise Records for an undisclosed amount of money. The label will retain its ownership and still operate out of Portland, and be the beneficiaries of larger global distribution under BMG. This news comes on the heels of Fearless Records being acquired by Concord Bicycle Music.
Under the deal, Rise will continue to operate out of Portland with Ericson at the helm of the digital-savvy company, but now the label will have BMG's resources for pushing its artists beyond the U.S., where it currently generates the vast majority of its revenue.

"Rise Records is more than a record label," noted Laurent Hubert, president of creative & marketing at BMG Chrysalis...

This is one of my favorite interviews that I've ever done, and I hope everyone takes the time to check it out. You can read it here.
Yeah man, I was really trying to find myself at that time, I think. I think ďCall It KarmaĒ was a song that really summed that up, the lyrics for that song were written very much how I write a lot of songs, where there are multiple meanings. I told...
