The Nashville-based venue released a statement following firing an employee for wearing a “I Support Same-Sex Marriage” shirt. It does not look like there will be any other comments on the situation from Rocketown, but the fallout is heavy.
So I think For Today is the only band allowed to play Rockettown? - Dave Mackinder (Fireworks frontman)
That’s a drastic drop, but most bands from a non-mainstream “scene” tend to see large slides for their week two sales. While we don’t actually cover Black Veil Brides on POZ, they may have a good change of jumping into a very popular mainstream-goth type of roll that hasn’t been played since My Chem were on top.
This is now limited to 400 copies and will never be digitally available. Someone will of course rip the vinyl to audio, but the pressing is going to sell out in a minute, and a fourth of the copies will be up on eBay a minute after. Get ready. Then get ready in five to seven days to be mindfucked by a stoner rock version of a No Doubt song.
Hats off to Justin Vernon. A million copies sold across two records for an indie artist is a big deal, Grammy or not.
This sounds like what A Day To Remember does with Tom Denney. The trick will be to see whether it can be successful or not.
Sainthood Reps released an incredible album in 2011 and Weatherbox are longtime favorites to many. This is a great pickup for Topshelf Records.
