The following was submitted by a user regarding the recent "drama" between Motion City Soundtrack and Silverstein:
Message"On July 9th at the Warped Tour in Fresno, CA the lead singer from Motion City Soundtrack boldly stated (while wearing a Silverstein t-shirt) that they would by handling the situation with Silverstein out by the buses after the show.

During Silverstein's set, the band brought out a guy in a hat and sunglasses and said he was there to speak to the crowd about the internet. The disguised man asked if anyone had heard about the feud between Silverstein and Motion 'Shitty' Soundtrack and then made a joke about MCS re-releasing their album. The crowd went crazy cheering...

Below is a statement from Motion City Soundtrack in regards to what's brewing between them and Silverstein while on Warped Tour.
Statement Despite our best efforts to keep this a private matter, it has recently been brought to our attention that people have been hearing the rumors about a beef between us and Silverstein...

There is a problem and we're going to deal with it appropriately, trust us. In good time, the truth of this matter will come out and we are sure that you will see who the real victims are... For...

Motion City Soundtrack's headlining tour ended last night in Detroit, MI; more than 30 sold-out shows across the country, and one of the coolest line-ups for support bands I've seen in a long time. The band takes just one day off before going out and headlining the MTVu Campus Invasion Tour with Straylight Run and hellogoodbye.
Jared Kaufman on 04/03/06 - 11:56 AM
Motion City Soundtrack is recording a new song today. I'd love to tell you more about it, like where it'll end up and so forth, but I fear their lunatic manager. So, for now, I'll keep my mouth shut; stay tuned.

Sorry I'm a day late with this, but I have a lot going on "behind-the-scenes" so I'm juggling quite a few things. Anyway, below you'll find my review for the Motion City Soundtrack show that took place this past Sunday, March 19th at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. The Format, The Matches, and Men Women & Children were on the bill as well.
Show ReviewSo, the first thing I noticed when this tour was announced was the diversity of style, sound, type of music, etc. among the support bands. The first leg had OK Go, Plain White Ts, and The Spill Canvas where the second leg had the bands listed above, Now, in my opinion, the second leg is much better; however, I respect the planning of...

If you were planning on attending the Motion City Soundtrack show this Sunday, March 19th at the 9:30 Club with The Format, Men Women & Children and The Matches, but were bummed to find out it was sold out, then don't worry! This tour will be hitting up the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA on Monday, March 20th; they'll be playing Great Hall which has a capacity of about 600 people. Doors open at 7:00PM and the show itself starts at 8:00PM; however, this is an 18 and over show. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for non-students.
