Make Them Suffer Drops Out of Ice Nine Kills’ Tour

Make Them Suffer have officially dropped out of Ice Nine Kills after failing to secure themselves the necessary visa to come to the United States. You can check out what the band posted on their Facebook page regarding this announcement below.

It’s no secret that we’ve not yet made it to a show on the Octane Accelerator Tour. Unfortunately we have had some serious setbacks with immigration, and were unable to secure the visas we needed in time for these shows with Ice nine Kills, Fit For a King, Light the Torch & Awake at Last.

Touring internationally can be full of pitfalls for musicians, and immigration difficulties and UCIS delays for artists entering the United States are nothing new. We’ve tried everything in our power to fix this problem but unfortunately it’s completely out of our hands.

For our fans in the US, fear not, we will return in 2020, and we’ll be doing it with a new album under our belts & visas in hand. – Sean, Nick, Booké, Jaya & Jordan

Sharptooth Share New Song “Mean Brain”

Sharptooth has shared their new song recently. You can stream the studio version of their song “Mean Brain” below.

Vocalist Lauren Kashan commented:

I think everyone, particularly those of us with mental illness, can relate to the experience of beating ourselves up, and getting stuck in those negative thought patterns. They’re a blend of our deepest fears in the hands of our harshest inner critic, and when left unchecked can lead to seriously painful self-loathing and a distorted view of our place in the world.

But we are not our thoughts or our feelings. They are part of our experience, but they don’t have to define us. For me, the first step to finding compassion for myself was to acknowledge those negative thought patterns for what they are; not facts, just my brain being mean to me.

I’m incredibly stoked to share new music; I think we’re long overdue to get to broadcast our evolution to the world. For me, the vocals on ‘Mean Brain‘ are some of my favorite that I’ve ever recorded; I loved getting to experiment with my range. It’s also a nice little ‘fuck you’ to anyone out there who thinks ‘all female vocalists sound the same’; I barely sound the same from the beginning to the end of this song. So they can kiss my perfect ass.

Destrage Unveil Music Video For “About That”

Destrage has unveiled their new music video recently. You can watch the official video for their song “About That” below. The song is from the band’s latest album The Chosen One.

The band commented:

We brushed the dust away from a pile of live and life on the road footage, collaborated with an eccentric Scottish artist for 3D hysteria, threw in the mix a bunch of awkward yet carefully selected clips from the dark side of the internet, and digitally raped the whole thing in a live-video mix software. It’s fucking low-fi caviar to me!

Falling In Reverse Cancel Upcoming Tour With Crown The Empire

Falling In Reverse have announced that they are canceling their upcoming tour with Crown The Empire. The announcement came after FIR guitarist Derek Jones‘ fiancee’s ongoing battle with cancer. Frontman Ronnie Radke have posted the following statement on the band’s social media regarding this announcement.

I can’t believe I’m even typing this…

Derek’s fiancée Stina’s cancer has hospitalized her recently due to fluid in the lungs. While in the hospital matters have gotten worse and she has been moved to the ICU. Unfortunately we will have to cancel the Episode 4 tour. However, Derek and I discussed it and agreed that we are going to try and play Australia. It does not seem right in my heart to tour knowing of her condition as Derek has to be with her to help her fight through this. I’m sorry to the fans, Crown The Empire and Tom MacDonald. I will make it up to you somehow.

– Ronnie

Refunds for tickets and VIP upgrades available at point of purchase.
