Another Warped Tour ... another year of beef between bands. The Amity Affliction frontman, Joel Birch, is caught on video (in the replies) openly berating Memphis May Fire's vocalist Matty Mullins. It appears it may have had something to do with this tweet?
Update: The band has responded to this news. Read their statement in the replies.
A Hostage Calm fan named Alex was assaulted at a bar in North Carolina yesterday by another patron. The conflict centered around Alex's "I Support Same-Sex Marriage" T-shirt that has been the subject of other drama as well. We have a statement from Alex, which you can read an excerpt from below and fully in the replies, and we've also reached out to the band for a statement. We'll update this post when we hear something back.
I spoke up, because who you love has nothing to do with your religion or your political views. The guy was not happy. I went to smoke another cigarette and told the guy to leave...
As it now stands, after seeking the small amount of legal advice that we could buy ourselves, the crux of this situation is that: regardless of how long we have been using the name, any attempt to stop the other party using it will have to involve a lengthy journey through the courts. In other words, at the end of the day, the person who has the most money and therefore the resource to fight their case to the bitter end, will win. We could pile all of our money into the situation, of course but eventually (probably quite quickly) our money will run out and our battle...
This week in the "Chris Brown flips out in a parking lot" category, we bring you a video that recently surfaced of the R&B singer going after a valet over a $10 charge. Watch the video over at Rolling Stone.
In a lawsuit, DFA accuses Goldsworthy of failing to perform services he was paid for, owing outstanding loans, improperly using the company credit card and making unauthorized withdrawals from its bank accounts.
Let me remind you guys of something here. Throughout this entire year of touring with BOTDF, everyone who toured with them knows what that man does. Everyone knows how/who he is. But everyone is too scared of him to do a thing about it. Iíve had countless fans come up to me and tell me how rude he was and how creepy he was with them. Iíve seen many girls who were not of age with him and eventually on the bus with him. Iíve seen him treat his entire crew and band like animals. Iíve seen him...
Apparently a fight broke out between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean at an LA studio last night over a parking spot. Both parties are accusing the other of starting the altercation, but Frank ended up being the one to stay around and talk to the cops. We'll keep you updated as new info arises. In other news, it looks like Frank is performing at The Grammys.
Ronnie Radke of Falling In Reverse apologizes for something, there's a video in the replies -- and I don't give enough fucks to do anything besides post this. All I want for Christmas is for this band to break up.
Pentimento's new record was supposed to be released via Paper + Plastick Records/Black Numbers tomorrow, but it seems Panic Records has removed their songs from YouTube channel due to copyright issues, making us uncertain what to expect. The band will be announcing more details about the album's release tomorrow at 1PM EST.
A video response from Sumerian Records about the Ronnie Radke/I See Stars "incident," can be found in the replies. I remember when band drama was between good bands ... there won't be any "mics are for singing" shirts about this bullshit.
MC Chriskicked a fan out of his show in Philly last Tuesday (7/17) over a tweet about the opening act. Then after the incident spread like wildfire over the internet throughout Wednesday, he released a not so sincere apology which you can watch in the replies.
Lambgoat has a great story today, telling the tale of a hardcore band named Vice (from New York) and another, newer hardcore band named Vice (from Ohio). The New York Vice wants the Ohio Vice to change their name - the Ohio Vice is not amused. Read the laughable exchange between band members here.
Every Avenue frontman Dave Strauchman was arrested last night in Nashville but then released from jail one day later. Looking at his Twitter profile picture is worth the mouse clicks. We'll try to get a message from the band.
According to a Falling in Reversefansite, claiming to have a direct twitter message from Ronnie: they have "fired" their bass player Mika from the band because "he doesn't know how to tune his bass and he's an asshole."
A fight broke out during Every Time I Die's Christmas show in Buffalo between venue security, band members, and the fans. The incident occurred when frontman Keith Buckley invited audience members on-stage for the final song. Footage can be seen in the replies.
Jonny Craig is at the center of some drama again. This time a bunch of emails leaked on a website normally known to leak nudes. It's awkward. It's uncomfortable. The linked page is safe for work, but if you venture anywhere from the homepage, it's not. The gist is that Jonny is unhappy, thinking of quitting music, and needs money. I usually leave these kinds of stories up to the visitors if I post - and seeing as it's all over our newsqueue, it looks like the readers were clamoring for the story.
