Lionfight calls venue racist
2014-07-10 by Nu Metal | 29 Comments
Over the weekend, Chicago based Metalcore/Nu Metal/and so-called "Energy Rock" outfit Lionfight played a venue in Massachusetts called Anchors Up. According to an interview
with Under The Gun Review, after a dispute over whether or not Lionfight could play their samples over the PA system (they weren't), they were ridiculed and mocked by staff
running the venue and have, by their vocalist, been accused of being racist toward persons of color in the band.

No formal statement has been made by the venue regarding these accusations.

This article was poorly written.

"after a dispute over whether or not Lionfight could play their samples over the PA system (they weren't)"

Should say (they couldn't)

Ah. Another band jumping on the nu-metalcore bandwagon.

These guys even adopted the whole "make up a genre to sound different" trend of nu metal.

Now I love nu metal and play in a nu metal band but I wouldn't jump into the nu-metalcore bandwagon, I'm sticking to true nu metal/groove metal.

Randomly saying, I'm from MA and I hear a lot of negative things about Anchors Up. Therefore this doesn't surprise me.
