Search The City has a new singer, bassist, and drummer.
Message from the BandOkay guys, I figured that I would set the record straight and give you all a little more insight on what's been going on with us... Search The City was formed by Alex and I in 1998. Over the years we’ve had some member changes, so let me explain this to you all before the questions start flying: YES, we have a new singer, YES we have a new bassist, YES we have a new drummer, and YES we’re done writing our new record.

Here’s the deal: Alex and I always wanted this band to keep on going even after we disbanded, Adam and Josh did not. They felt that their calling was something different in life, and that's...

We Are the Ocean vocalist Dan Brown has left the band.
From the AnnouncementDan and the band had a meeting recently where Dan agreed that his passion lies behind the scenes as a manager, as opposed to musically. We felt we would be doing him, ourselves and, most importantly, you our fans a massive disservice if we did not acknowledge this fact immediately.

Rachel from He is We has sent us in a statement regarding the band's future. Due to health issues, Rachel can no longer tour - and the band is going to be bringing in someone else in the near future.
Message From RachelMusic has always been my dream. I began writing songs to express my feelings. Sadness, excitement, anger, hope, frustration, confusion, love. I poured everything I had into writing. When Trevor and I began making music together it was all fun. We eventually threw a few songs on some website called "MySpace" and one day realized people actually wanted to hear what we had to share and let us know the impact that our music had on their lives. Knowing our music helped and...

Last week blogs went buzzing about the departure of two members from Chiodos. Speculation also spread like wildfire about a possible return to the group from former frontman Craig Owens. This week I've been jotting down some thoughts on why an original line-up of any band is so important to us. What makes one person's addition or subtraction so crucial to any band? Do we sometimes hold onto the past so much, that we constantly base our future expectations on one album or song written years earlier? Give the piece a read, and let us know your thoughts on it in the replies. I'm very interested in the examples you guys come up with on this one.

Man Overboard and drummer Mike Hrycenko are parting ways.
Message from the BandThanks to everyone who has supported the Pop Punk The Vote tour so far, each show has been amazing. If you've attended a show then you know that we have our friend Joe playing drums for us. We love Mike to death, most of us have been playing music with him for 10+ years in one band or another but some things are not meant to be. We wish Mike luck as earns his college degree and whatever else the future brings him. See all of you at the remainder of the PPTV Tour, in europe or at Warped!

Update: The band has released the following statement.
MessageWe recently decided to part ways with our vocalist, Spencer Pearson, due to recurring issues with drugs and alcohol that reinforced a lack of effort and poor performance on his behalf. It wasn’t easy, but it was necessary. After many long talks to try and get him to clean up his act on and off stage it began to get too out of hand. As a band friendship is first and...

Adam Juwig has left Anarbor.
Message from the BandSo, some of you might have been wondering if I had fallen off the face of the world or not. About two months ago, I made the decision to leave Anarbor and go back to school full time and live a normal life. It was a very hard decision to make and wasn't a spontaneous decision. The whole time we had been touring, I had always had a yearning to go back to school and get my degree. After the "Do America" Tour, we had the longest break at home that we've had since we first began touring. Over the past few months, I was reminded of how much I loved being home and living a normal life. Being away from home for 8 to 10 months out of...

Message from the BandIt is with bittersweet sentiment that we announce some news today. Our bass player, Adam Russell, has made the personal decision to move on from Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows to pursue other opportunities. While we are happy to see him make a choice that will ultimately be best for him, of course, we are sad to see him go. Please know that we remain close friends and supporters of Adam, and that there are no hard feelings.

Rest assured this will not affect our current tour schedule. Our close friend, Tai "Never Wrong, Always" Wright, will be filling in on bass duties on the upcoming SIN Tour which starts Thursday in Chicago. Go to...
