Both Fireworks and Transit members have tweeted pretty damning statements about the Empire venue in Springfield, VA. From what we've been able to piece together, it looks like the promoter used hateful speech -- and then shit hit the fan. We've reached out to try and find out exactly what happened.

Update: A statement about everything that happened, from Floyd James, can be found here.

Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.

For Today's Mike Reynolds sent out a series of tweets claiming there is no such thing as a gay Christian. You keep on preaching all about that love and respect, Mike.

Update: Futhermore, Stick To Your Guns drummer George Schmitz has stated that the band will never tour with For Today ever again. You might recall Stick To Your Guns supporting For Today on the band's "Fight The Silence" headliner in 2012. - JD

Update #2: For Today has made a brief statement via their Facebook page.

Twitter (and AP.net) user ivogoossens is attempting to build a book of "punk rock wisdom" quotes and would like your help putting it together. Basically, he'd like your favorite song lyrics/quotes that contain "wisdom" from any band that is kind of related to this scene. From AFI to Fall Out Boy, to Misfits, Ramones, Social Distortion, All Time Low, Yellowcard. So, if you've got one - tweet at him!

Paramore has started recording drums for its new album. Hayley Williams has also posted a new blog which you can read here.
From the BlogWhen I was 17, I started writing lyrics to a song that would later be called “Let The Flames Begin”. It was on our sophomore album, RIOT! I never felt like it really sounded as meaningful on record as it seemed when we played it live. Over the years, we added on and added on to it. Not only is it one of our favorites to play at shows but one of the most highly requested live songs by… ahem… you guys. Maybe it’s just because the song is heavier than most our other songs or maybe it’s cause it feels really emotional to sing some of those words. Either...
