As I Lay Dying Members Have In State Of Confusion

You’d imagine it’d be tough for As I Lay Dying’s current situation to become more muddled, but the band managed to pull it off. 

After teasing song clips for a next project last week, a long (and what seemed to be official) statement was posted on the band’s website. It outlined the future for As I Lay Dying and the ownership of the band between Tim Lambesis and another member. The clarification was very much appreciated by fans.

Not so fast. Several hours later, a member of the band released his own statement on Facebook saying that no un-jailed member of the band was responsible for the statement on As I Lay Dying’s website and also hinted that Lambesis himself was the only member with website access. 

Things are more unclear than they were at the start.

From First To Last Announce Spencer Sotelo As New Vocalist

This was a shock to many fans. Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo is the new vocalist of From First To Last. This comes several months after the band launched and funded a successful Kickstarter campaign to record a reunion album. However, it was never made clear that a new singer would be joining the band when the Kickstarter was launched, so it’s was a safe assumption by fans toe expect Matt Good on vocals.

Whether that change will be an issue or not to fans will be known soon.

Bring Your Parents To Warped Tour For Free, Again

A truly smart move, once again, by Kevin Lyman to keep this policy going for the summer of 2014. Warped Tour is at a place now, 20 years in, where the wealth of experience from setting up and tearing down their daily carnival each summer makes for the right decisions at the right time.

Chiodos, Manchester Orchestra, The Used Land On Billboard

It’s certainly interesting to watch the ebb and flow of our music scene from a step back. If you look at the chart positions above in a micro level, you’d see sales numbers that represent today’s environment and not necessarily a huge shock with the placement of Chiodos and The Used, but great surprise with Manchester Orchestra.

If you take two steps back to a macro level to lets say 2010, things get put in a different perspective. Manchester Orchestra are now four albums in and are still growing to a new height with the release of Cope. Chiodos and The Used however are much later into their careers, and even though they charted high, the albums didn’t do quite as well as prior releases (even if you adjust for sales deflation).
