From First To Last drop off Tour

If you were hoping to catch FFTL soon well then you may already know ( maybe not) but the have dropped of the tour. The band had this to say on their myspace blog.

Since Matt Manning has to deal with some legal issues back in the homeland we have to drop off the remaining 7 shows with Scary Kids and Finch. Which is Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. We are extremely bummed because this tour has been such an awesome time. We've made some really good friends and had some great shows, so it is very upsetting to us that we have to leave. But Matt Manning is going to take care of all the bulllshit.

Once again we are so sorry to all the people that were looking forward to the show but we will make it up to you soon. You should all go to the show regardless because all the bands on it are fucking sick and make for a great time.

we love you guys. and we will see you soon.
The UK tour is not cancelled FYI

Eyes Set To Kill New video for "Darling"

Eyes Set To Kill - Darling ( exclusive) from Alternative Press on Vimeo.

Forever the Sickest Kids "She's A Lady"

Tegan (of Tegan and Sara) and Hunter (of AFI) side project

Even though Hunter did some guess work on Tegan and Sara's "The Con" album, doesn't mean thats all you will hear from him and Tegan.

"We've been writing dance songs together, and we're both too old and tired to be in another band on top of the bands that we're already in so we're just going to try and sell the songs to other people make them do the work. But we kind of work on stuff together, which has been really nice and then we always have a million projects up our sleeves so we'll keep making ourselves work all the time because if we don't we'll get into trouble I think."

"Mutual appreciation for each other's work. He emailed me, and I was still answering fan mail in those days, and I didn't believe that he was actually in A.F.I. I thought he was just pretending. So I did a lot of research. I asked him a lot of questions, and I asked him to meet up with me in L.A. the last time and he didn't weird me out. So, I was like, 'OK we can be friends, so...' I just started sending him old songs that I really hadn't done anything with, and he just started redoing all the instrumentation and stuff. I never actually collaborated with anyone up until that point. I never even... Me and Sara don't write songs together, so it's really weird. I feel explosive and angry at times by his comments, but I really like making music with him, so maybe we'll do it again."

Tegan And Sara are set for a fall tour starting September 20th at the San Diego Street Scene. Their latest single is "Call It Off."

thanks UG.

Pink Floyd keyboardist dies at 65

Rick Wright lost his battle with cancer and has passed away.
“The family of Richard Wright, founding member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness that Richard died today after a short struggle with cancer. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time,” said Wright’s spokesperson.

David Gilmour has posted this on his site. No one can replace Richard Wright. He was my musical partner and my friend. In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick's enormous input was frequently forgotten. He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognized Pink Floyd sound.” He later adds, “Like Rick, I don't find it easy to express my feelings in words, but I loved him and will miss him enormously.”

our hearts go out to his family during this time.

Korn take a break

onathan Davis states:

"We've been going fifteen years and we need to just chill out for awhile. And you know me, I got to keep playing, I got to keep writing music so I don't go crazy, so I decided it would be a perfect time to do this.
"It's not like a hiatus or anything, we're still all good, it's just when everybody's ready, we'll get back together and go do it. We just need to recharge our batteries and get hungry again."

keith Buckley view on VMAs

While I don't claim to hold any stringent allegiance to what main stream media channels offer me, I wont pretend that I am completely immune to its influences. Only vapid indie hipsters who imagine that they are so far removed from popular culture as to maintain a staunch indifference to its pervasiveness declare this absurdity. Yes guys I understand. You love JUSTICE and new balance sneakers and organic foods and denying the origin of any of your cliché ideas for a song. But the truth is, creativity comes not only from an awareness of influences but from a study of how they offend you. if it weren't for MTV award shows there would be no music devoted to its undoing. There would be no antiplots and miniplots and archplots that make direction and story writing what it is. If I didn't hate METRO STATION as much as I do I would never fully appreciate the brilliance of true music played by musicians. I am proud to be a part of a culture that will not make a countdown on a local radio station. And if I do, then it is under the same pretense that that creepy asshole in glasses came into the Emersons house in The Lost Boys. Get the invitation, then ruin all you come into contact with. Maybe one day ill be invited into the "House Of All The Rage". But if I am, I promise I'm bringing my bloodsucking friends with me. See you on tour.

What did you think of the VMAs?
