New on Music Remedy..slash me.

I was a busy little bee today and just posted a bunch of new Warped interviews which you can find all on Music Remedy! It's become my little project and honestly every time I see one of my interviews linked anywhere (even if it's on fygroupies...sweet!) it makes it that much more worthwhile. I've come so far through everything starting purely with myspace bands and local Montreal favorites to now make it to this point where I can say I have done interviews with Simple Plan to the Goo Goo Dolls but for now, you can find these on the front page.

Videos here/funny bits for each band and link below. Thanks for being faithful readers for ever and always:

Check out my exclusive with Brian Dales who plays lead vocals for The Summer Set where we talked about how he tries to get a leg up on Tyson Ritter's stage antics every day here. Also catch the band on their headliner this fall where we'll hopefully be catching up with them again!

Next up are the rockers in Confide! We caught up with drummer Joel Piper and talked everything from their mixed feelings about the latest record "Recover" and that they are already writing the next one. Find it all here!

Why Warped Tour is so awesome..the chance to go right from screamo rockers to acoustic legends! We caught up with Ace Enders former ex frontman for The Early November where he told us that I Can Make A Mess will be his main project right now and for him hopefully the final one which we talked all about here!

Next up (I've been busy what can I say?) was an interview with Cameron from The Downtown Fiction. We caught him right before he had to go into surgery on his vocal chords but we talked about the new record and the EP so read it all here!

Think that's a lot? Keep up to date here as we still have interviews coming with Hey Monday, Andrew W.K., Pierce The Veil, The Cab, Eyes Set To Kill and Of Mice and Men just to name a few! Again, thanks for making a girl's dream come true!

Breaking News: Kurt Travis leaves DGD.

Breaking news with the Dance Gavin Dance crew and I definitely saw this coming. Dance Gavin Dance has announced that they've officially parted ways with front man Kurt Travis. Seeing them play at Transmission fest while I was there doing coverage, it was sure from their stage energy that the line up wouldn't last too much longer (and that was less than two weeks ago!) I've never been a fan of Kurt honestly, he just seems like a huge mess as mean as it may sound.
Luckily though, they won't be going on much of a break because of it. Their original frontmen so to speak Jonny Craig of Emarosa and Jon Mess will be returning to the band and will be recording their next record to be released next year on Rise Records. Jonny will still be in Emarosa along with doing his solo project so don't fret! Keep your eye out on the band and check them out when they hit the road again in the spring!

The new Chiodos?

I just searched for pictures of the new line up of Chiodos and unfortunately was not able to find any. That's just one sign that the new album from Chiodos has been under such heavy wraps. Today though is the beginning of the unraveling of the secret plans and that first step is that the first record minus legendary front man Craig Owens will be hitting the shelves October 5th.

After listening to Craig's solo stuff, I was wondering how difficult it would be for me to like Chiodos but surprisingly I am loving the new track that has just started streaming on their myspace, "Those Who Slay Together, Stay Together". Brandon Bolmer has an extradionary voice which matches extremely well with the screaming and this 5:03 track is superb. I'm sure I'm not the only one incredibly excited to hear this new record and see it live as well! Congrats boys!

Meet the man behind the facade of Black Veil Brides!

Hi ladies and gentleman, check out my latest interview on Music Remedy with the extremely talented Andy Sixx of Black Veil Brides!

If there were one message you wanted your fans to take away after watching one of your live shows, what would it be?
"That the weird kid from Ohio did this and is standing up on the stage and singing the words that he wrote and gets to do what he loves every day and so can you. There’s absolutely no difference between me and them. We’re a mere reflection of you know each other and so honestly the number one message is that no rockstars in bands are shipped from the sky and if you want something, you can never let anybody tell you otherwise. "

Back In The Studio: A Skylit Drive

It's been a while since we've talked to the band and a while since they've been touring in the area but the boys in A Skylit Drive have just posted a brand new trailer to tell their fans that they are making the new record! To be released/planned to be released in early 2011, the record is sure to be a very exciting follow up to Adelphia. Find our latest interview here and enjoy the update:

Fun. signs to Fueled By Ramen!

Who honestly didn't see this coming? Why yes Fueled, I caught your little hints when you started including their merch on your propaganda materials and I couldn't be more excited to see this talented band that we've interviewed signing with you guys! Does this mean we could see another tour with Paramore, another round with Rocket? Whatever it means, I think this is a great place for Fun!
Congrats Boys!
