Below is a message from My Chemical Romance in regards to the cancellation of the shows they had scheduled for this weekend.
MessageWe got some really bad news in the past 48 hours. As a result of complications with a previous injury, Bob ended up in the hospital with a staph infection. He's being monitored all weekend and we want to be by his side the whole time. Unfortunately, this means we can't make this weekend's shows in Allentown and Syracuse because we need to be there by his side. A lot of people suggested we use a different drummer, but we need to stay true to Bob and our band. One of the major disappointments of this, other than seeing Bob in pain, is missing Taking Back...

Acceptance Bassist Decides To LeaveGood News For People Who Like Bad News
Greetings dear and beloved friends. The sun has set many times since our last correspondence and the rising of that sun has brought with it some changes for the boys of Acceptance. Most importantly, I think you should all know that a familiar face will no longer be seen amongst our ranks. Our friend and bass player of four years has decided to leave the band to explore other adventures. Ryan explains below, but I will say that we love him and will miss him...

The Chemistry are selling their touring RV. It's an '88 bounder and is kind of old, but the band has set it up for touring. It's 35 feet long, sleeps seven comfortably, has a bathroom, shower, stove, oven, microwave, generator that powers all the electricity, heat and air conditioning. It also has a freshly rebuilt engine and a brand new transmission with a lifetime warranty. It runs great and has saved the band a lot of money on hotels. If anyone wants more info, then contact jaredisburning@tmail.com (no, not me, the Jared in the band). They're asking for $6,500.

So, I guess some of our old demos leaked out on the internet some how. Just to give a brief history on them, those where the first songs we had wrote when we started writing for the new record and where the first songs we wrote with Jason and Ben in the mix. Some of the songs where incomplete vocally and the very early stages of maturity. We did them about a year and 2 months ago at this place called the Steakhouse. The quality isn't the best, but you get the idea. Not all the songs are going to be used for the record, just some. So, if you happen to come...

Message From ThrowdownWe recently had two guitars and one bass guitar stolen from us in Costa Mesa, California about 2 weeks ago.

The guitars are:

*A Washburn Idol 164W with flat black finish and vintage bronze hardware with two EMG pickups and a white To Die For sticker on the body (which was likely peeled off).

*A Washburn Idol 164 with red wood finish, chrome hardward and two EMG pickups. No stickers.

*Ibanez Soundgear 900 bass with flat black finish and chrome hardwear with stock Ibanez pickups. No stickers.

All the above were given to us and can be replaced easily, however, we don't like...
