You can check out the first part of my interview with Favorite Weapon here. In this half, I talk with vocalist Hance Alligood and guitarist Alex Heroes about the band's beginnings, naming their band after Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon, and what we can expect from their Velocity/Rise Records debut, Sixty Saragossa. Check back tomorrow for part two.
Immediately following Woe, Is Me, I knew I still wanted to do music, but I just didnít know at that point whether it would be a new band, solo album, whatever. So last October, almost a year ago I went to Florida with Tom Denney, and he said ďI donít know what youíre thinking about doing with music, but if you want to come down and just...

Former Woe, Is Me vocalist Hance Alligood has posted a blog about the lack of good local scenes in music these days. Thoughts? Anyone else feeling the same thing?
They ďskippedĒ the local band phase. In some situations, one or more members of this new band were in previous acts, whether they were just a local band or a band that had done a few tours and had been picked up by someone, but thatís not always the case. Sometimes itís just a band funded by kids with wealthy parents. Well nowadays, it seems like everyone who decides to form a band doesnít even try to put in work and gain any sort of success locally. And any bands who really wanna work to build up a local following canít even...

You can check out our interview with new Velocity/Rise band ISSUES here. This band features former members of Woe, Is Me, and the band have just wrapped up recording a debut EP with producer/engineer Kris Crummett.
From The Interview"We have the knowledge of a band that's risen to the top, but we have the heart of a starting new, and working our way back up. It's cool, because it's kept us grounded, but the knowledge has kept us motivated with what to do. We're working really hard, and it's definitely a hustle, but at least we have the fans that are craving stuff."

Check out our interview with Woe, Is Me here. We discuss member departures, as well as their upcoming sophomore album.
From The InterviewFrom the beginning, we've always gone with our buddy Cameron Mizell at Chango Studios [in Orlando, FL]. We had actually had a few producers lined up, and at the end of the day, Cameron added such a unique sound to our band and that was something we couldn't escape from. We didn't want to go with someone else and then miss out on the orchestral and synth effects that he added; he'll definitely be the one recording and engineering. We're talking about having Joey Sturgis come on to do the mixing and mastering, and bring on Caleb Shomo [Attack Attack] possibly...

Tyler Carter is leaving Woe, Is Me. A statement from Tyler can be found below.
Tyler CarterIt's not an easy step to make, but I can't go on living a dream that I no longer have full interest in. I love the fans, and I hope the true ones will stick with Woe, Is Me and myself even after my departure. Don't be ignorant to the situation--it's nothing personal with the boys, I love them all. I just can't fake passion that I once had. I always preach to my fans, "Follow your dreams," and I need to take my own advice. My dreams are not fully achieved. I achieved several with the band, but I have many more goals to reach. This lifestyle, "rock 'n' roll" and what it consists of just isn't for me...
