The Weekender: Blind Justice, blink Demoing City Lights Breakup, Sum 41 Don’t Know When To Stop
Welcome to PropertyOfZack: Weekender edition. Every weekend, we bring you some of biggest and most interesting pieces of the past week from our own content to stories or breaking news. If you’ve had a busy week and want to catch up with some light reading, we hope this is for you.
The genres of punk and hardcore are were built by outcasts who decided it would better to stick together and create rather than take advantage and destroy. Decide what side you’re on, and don’t attempt to fool anyone by saying anything otherwise.
Momentum seems to have slowed down for blink-182. In November and December it seemed clear that the band had plans to begin recording their follow-up album to Neighborhoods in February, but that seems very unlikely.
The band has plans for a summer in Europe, but music needs to predate that plane and boat ride blink. Will we see a June or July release? That’s what’s necessary if blink want to take over the world, again.
From the band:
We have decided to call it quits because we’ve all come to a time in our lives when we’re ready to take on new opportunities. For some of us, that involves continuing to play music, and for others it involves working behind the scenes in the industry. We firmly believe that we can contribute to not only our own musical growth, but to the growth of our music scene in general by taking on these new opportunities, and continuing without City Lights.
The real question Sum 41 needs to ask is, “Does anyone want to hear new music from us?” It’s a little hard to believe that the answer is “Yes.”
Sum 41 put out three incredible records in a row, and they have all stood the test of time. Underclass Hero, while not a fan favorite, was a huge success in the mainstream world. Screaming Bloody Murder was a major failure in every regard.
Since then, the band lost another lifetime member. Since then, Deryck Whibley’s personal and physical life have fallen apart and he has become a laughing stock among fans.
It might be time to just stick to the hits, if the hits can even draw people out.
There’s a point where it’s better to say no comment then to say something no one believes.
