Ashley Cadwallader has left Smalls. PropertyOfZack is reporting this is due to homophobia from her bandmates.
After months of struggling with the decision, Cadwallader realized she could no longer take the abuse and vitriole [sic] thrown at her by her own bandmates because they refused the accept the fact that she is gay.

The band has sent in a message to POZ, denying any homophobia or abuse:
Her leaving the band was a professional break. It had nothing to do with my past relationship with her, or who she is as a person. I’ve always expressed nothing but love, and respect to not only her but the people around me. I grew up with a home with a mother who taught me well; love others...

Matt Wachter has left Angels and Airwaves.
Matt Wachter we love him! We are sad to see him go, but the man now has 3 amazing kids and needs to be at home this year to be a Dad... And of course we support him. Dick jokes and memories will not fade.. We are all still great friends, so don't freak out kids-- Matt still might join us later down the road somewhere and somehow. Until then I have to just send him naked photos of men to make him smile..

Gawker is reporting that Kliph Scurlock was kicked out of the Flaming Lips for disagreeing with Wayne Coyne about the appropriateness of wearing "Native-American headdresses."
Kliph Scurlock confirmed to Indian Country Today Media Network that he was fired by Wayne Coyne for criticizing Christina Fallin. "I was fired for telling Christina to go fuck herself after her lame-ass 'apology' when people got upset at her stupid headdress photo," he wrote. "That happened in mid-March. I wasn't anywhere around during the performance [at Norman Music Festival] the other night."

Protest The Hero have parted ways with bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi.
Arif has decided that the touring schedule we have signed up for to support Volition is more intense than what he is prepared to commit. He is actively involved with other projects at home and being a full time band member isn't a practical thing. Though he has and will be missed out on the road with his brothers, everything was left on a positive note and we are open to his involvement down the road and only time will see how it all plays out. In the meantime, our longtime friend and tourmate Cam McLellan will be filling in on bass duties for the rest of the cycle. As an amazing musician, co-writer and producer of...

Three members of Quiet Out Loud have quit the band according to a blog post by ex-member Matt Lillie. I know what you're thinking, "who the fuck are these guys and why do I care?" Well, I'm with you ... I'm only posting it because someone threatened to sue Zack for this same post and well, fuck that.
Then he proceeded to threaten me with physical violence while to claim everything as his own when the rest of the band including myself decided to go on with the show with a fill in. So that we didn’t hurt the bands reputation or let down fans. (picture below). Now last time I check a “good mature 28 year old man” doesn’t do this type of stuff.

I didn’t want to really mention this or draw a lot of attention to it because it’s really just not a big deal, but so many of you are asking since he posted on twitter yesterday. Christian is no longer playing in Candy Hearts. We want to assure you that the three of us (Kris, Matt and I) believe this is the best possible move for our band. We are more excited than ever to make a new record, tour and keep getting our music out there to you guys - because you mean the most us.

Hi people. We wanted to throw this out there just to let everyone know that our boy and bass man Goose (Erik Henning) has left PBC. I don’t want to speak for him too much but simply put, he was ready to move on to other things in life and we’re happy for him. We truly wish him the best and if you like, you can too over @American_Goose. If you’ve seen us on our current tour you may have noticed a very tall man-boy holding what looks like a toy bass in his gargantuan arms. That’s Ty Smith. He’s an old friend of ours and he’ll be holding down the bass duties for us. Everything else is good in PBC world. This tour with Bad Religion and The...
