Ex-Guitarist to Sue The Used 7 replies

The Used's ex guitarist Quinn Allman has filed a lawsuit for damages due to late royalty checks which have affected his financial credit. The late royalty checks were allegedly due to Quinn's refusal to sign an unfavorable termination agreement.

"He didn’t sign it, he said, because it didn’t include severance or allow him control of his royalty payments for his 13 years with the band."

The financial damages have allegedly stunted Allman's ability to move forward in his future musical endeavors. This lawsuit also comes two years after being kicked out of the band following a break Allman had asked to take.

"In 2015, more than a decade after he founded The Used, Allman said he was kicked out of the band, several months after he requested a personal break from touring when his father-in-law died and his mother was assaulted."

Glassjaw - Material Control info 194 replies

A listing appeared on Amazon that appears to confirm the title, tracklisting, and release date of Glassjaw's long-awaited 3rd LP, titled Material Control along with a $11.98 pre-order option. Several hours later the listing was taken down at the request of Century Media, along with several posts from fans on Twitter and Instagram following emails from the label asking that they be removed. Apparently Amazon goofed on this one.

Today, several people on Instagram and Facebook posted pictures showing that they had received a box set of 10 7" vinyls of the new record, with tracks "Bastille Day" and title track "Material Control" being unlisted as they are instrumental interludes.

People with copies have intimated that the album will be officially released Friday, 11/17/17, but it's just rumor, and no one from the band has officially commented on any of it (weird) and nobody really knows anything other than yes, there is really a bran ...more

New Burial Material 20 replies

London dubstep maestro Burial has released his 4th set of new material and 3rd EP since 2016, entitled Pre-Dawn/Indoors. After previous releases Young Death, Subtemple and Rodent fell mostly flat with many longtime fans, hype for new Burial material has collapsed.

Those who have disliked Burial's latest direction may not find much in the further dark ambient re-envisioning of Burial's found on Pre-Dawn, but a more refined ear for the new sounds that harkens somewhat back to Kindred with a hint of Andy Stott, may suggest at a brighter future for Burial's creative spark.

Luke Rockets Allegations 40 replies

Luke Rockets, guitarist for the Australian pop-punk band With Confidence, has been accused of engaging in sexually explicit conversations with a fourteen year old girl. The full statement from a friend of the victim, along with screenshots of conversations between Luke and the girl in questions, can be seen via the link below. The full statement is as follows:

In light of the recent events, I feel like I can no longer stay quiet about an experience that has affected someone close to me. Sadly, we still live in a society full of victim-blaming and social media backlash aimed at the people brave enough to speak up about experiences of sexual assault or misconduct. I am speaking for my friend, who has chosen to remain anonymous for these very same reasons. May this be an example to all of you that young girls are still afraid to speak up about these experiences, as the prospect of the hate they’ll receive is just as terrifying as being sexually preyed on.

Ulver release new EP 21 replies

Norwegian group, Ulver released on November 11 a brand new EP, called Sic Transit Gloria Mundi, featuring three songs that were left unfinished during The Assassination of Julius Caesar recording sessions. As of now, this is only a digital release, but it will most likely receive a physical one as well.

The band's comment regarding Sic Transit Gloria Mundi is the following:

"The sad remains from our Caesarean banquet. Two songs we kind of left on the drawing board but resumed work on this summer. Additionally, a cover of a childhood favourite – one we actually started some twelve–thirteen years ago – from the time we first started thinking about making “pop” music. This EP was finalized in our new studio in the old town of Oslo in September, and sent off to Youth's (Martin Glover and Michael Rendall) in London in October, for imperial sound quality. Mastered this week by The Bricoleur.

Jesse Lacey Allegations 852 replies

In an effort to address recent events and the public conversation currently happening, I feel it is important to make a clear and personal statement.

The actions of my past have caused pain and harm to a number of people, and I want to say that I am absolutely sorry. I do not stand in defense of myself nor do I forgive myself. I was selfish, narcissistic, and insensitive in my past, and there are a number of people who have had to shoulder the burden of my failures. I apologize for the hurt I have caused, and hope to be able to take the correct actions to earn forgiveness and trust.

Early on in my life, I developed a dependent and addictive relationship with sex. I was scared of it, ashamed, and unwilling or unable to admit it, a ...more

RIP Chuck Mosley 29 replies

Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley has passed away, according to reports. In a statement released by his family Mosley, who also had a brief sting with Bad Brains as well as a solo career, died "due to the disease of addiction". He had previously been sober for a number of years, but had recently relapsed.

Mosley joined Faith No More in the mid-1980s and released two albums, We Care A Lot and Introduce Yourself, with the latter propelling the group to the top of the California underground scene thanks to the single "We Care A Lot". Mosley left the group in 1988 after conflicts within the band, and performed with Bad Brains and Cement during the 1990s before releasing his first solo album, Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food, in 2009.

In recent years he had reconciled with the members of Faith No More, often appearing at shows since their reunion and performing classics from the first two albums, and in 2016 he performed a short run o ...more
