A Facebook user has posted a video of what appears to be Unwritten Law losing their shit and trashing the stage. From what we can piece together this took place on the final night of the Hits & Pits tour at Capitol & Amps in Perth, Australia. Apparently the band were upset the venue shut off the power after they had played their allotted minutes? Reading the replies of the video makes it appear this is not the first time on the tour Unwritten Law have been ... less than easy to deal with.
Unwritten Law - subject of today's Backstage Sessions - have faced some line-up changes. Following a physical altercation, guitarist Steve Morris and bassist Pat "PK" Kim left the group. The have since been replaced by Kevin Besignano (ex-Bullets and Octane) and Derik Envy (ex-Red Light Sky). Statements can be found in the replies.
This week's Backstage Sessions finds Unwritten Law frontman Scott Russo performing an acoustic version of "Starships and Apocalypse" at the Mansfield, MA date of the Warped Tour. Watch the video in the replies.
Unwritten Law have announced a new live CD/DVD, Live and Lawless, for release on September 16, 2008. While the album features 16 live tracks, the DVD features 22 songs, including an entire five-song acoustic set in the middle of the performance.
