It looks as though Defeater has parted ways with guitarist Jay Maas.
Over the weekend it was decided to move forward as a band without the participation of Jay Maas due to personal & creative differences. All scheduled Defeater shows and tours will go on as planned and we wish Jay luck in his future endeavors. Thank you

Derek from Defeater has started a PledgeMusic campaign to raise money for a hip replacement.
Without insurance, the cost for the surgery amounts to $50,000, including different programs helping to lower the cost. And even after cost of the surgery, anesesthia, hospital bills, etc, there is rehabilitation and physical therapy as well. Before I go ahead and ask for a handout, I want to make it known that you will be given the opportunity to gain something as well. We have worked together to come up with a few different packages in return for your financial help. After speaking with the hospital, I am certain that this can be taken care of fairly quickly, thus leading to more time spent on...

The doctors and surgeons I have seen strongly recommended that I get this taken care of as soon as possible before my hip breaks in it's brittle state and causes further damage.
Thomas Nassiff on 01/29/14 - 11:59 AM
Fireworks will return with its highly anticipated new full-length, Oh, Common Life, on March 25 via Triple Crown Records. It was recorded last fall with Brian McTernan. Additionally, the band will be replacing Defeater as direct support on the entirety of The Wonder Years' recently announced spring headlining tour.
“This is a record of self-realization. It’s all pretty self-absorbed and personal, and it all came from within. When we show it to people close to us, it can get uncomfortable because of how personal and relatable it is.” says guitarist and back up vocalist, Chris Mojan. “We were able to break everything down when we were writing,” Mojan continues. “I think that shows on the...
