January 25th, 2013 was the biggest day in PropertyOfZack’s history following our exclusive announcement of Fall Out Boy’s reunion. Though the band denied it in clever ways for a few weeks, it turned out that the death threats and homophobic slurs made against us turned out to be false. Fall Out Boy are back, and it’s been a fun six months watching them get back to their old ways.
It was a late Wednesday night when Gerard Way broke the news that My Chemical Romance had decided to call it quits. Fans were shocked, and so were we.
Follow-up: Frank Iero, James Dewees Start New Band
March Sadness was a giant success for us at PropertyOfZack. It was our fun way of celebrating our favorite emo bands, but none of us thought Dads would take home the sad crown.
Of Mice & Men mysteriously disappeared from two dates of A Day To Remember’s spring tour, and PropertyOfZack was able to confirm the absence was due to Austin Carlile being arrested. We never got much explanation from the band or Carlile following his release from jail.
This was great. Patrick Stump took to Twitter to take down one big troll, and the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Shane Morris, the troll in question, had been harassing Fall Out Boy fans and suggest that they kill themselves for liking the band. PStump took care of them.
Ash Avildsen (owner of Sumerian Records) and Lorenzo “The Main event” Antonucci’s diss track to Ronnie Radke of Falling In Reverse has been taken down, but AltPress assembled the lyrics. Check them out below after the jump.

This is one of the worst best songs you’ll never hear. Ronnie Radke’s original diss song and Sumerian + Lorenzo’s comeback have now been taken down from YouTube. Sumerian’s rap called out multiple aspects of Radke’s life and was pretty funny. Rap battles are something we truly needed in this scene, and we’re so glad we got them for two days.
BuzzFeed has posted a new listacle on pop-punk albums you need to hear before you die. Ordering aside, most of these are must hears at some point in your life.

The dude from Attila is apparently angling to have his band be the first act picketed by both the WBC and GLAAD. It’s kind of impressive. - Jesse Richman
We posted this article via Noisey last night, and it’s created quite a storm of negative remarks and thoughts. Just a jaded old punk, or are there valid points?
Dewees has a polyp on his right vocal chord, which will require surgery. The medical issue is why Dewees and Matt Pryor’s summer tour was cancelled.

Radke addressed all rumors over Falling In Reverse this past weekend and confirmed that the band is not breaking up and that Radke has not kciked out any members. PupFresh also retracted their statement that started the rumors.
The band was also selling photo passes for $150, but those were removed due to Warped Tour demanding it. This seems weird though, no?
Way has confirmed that DC Comics approved him to write a six series Batman comic years ago, but he simply never had the time to get it done. It could still happen, though.
Fat Mike and Atom Willard will be tracking the new Against Me! recording session. Punk nerds, be stoked.
