I'm unsure of his username, but Ben submitted quite a bit. I feel like he submitted enough that you should credit this to him as well as myself.

Coerce aren't broken up.

Also, the Weekender looks awesome. Would love to see The Smith Street Band and The Nation Blue, two of my favourites.

They were on hiatus when I submitted the news piece actually. Coerce played a "last show" before hiatus in Melbourne recently to support their last 10" record. In the last week though they were announced to be playing two of the Robotosaurus / Totally Unicorn shows so I guess it didn't stick or the bands convinced them otherwise.

This was the original announcement so they were definitely on a break: http://www.chuckingamosh.com/2012/12/15/coerce-announce-record-launch-hiatus/
