DJ AM

I was incredibly sad to hear the news that DJ AM was found dead today in New York. While there has been speculation from a variety of sources about it being drug related, I don't think it is appropriate to assume the worst about someone without confirmation. No matter what the cause it is a tragic loss to the music community. While there are only a handful of DJ's whose work I admire, DJ AM certainly was very high on the list for his work with Travis Barker over the last few years. He was an incredibly gifted and creative person, and though I did not know him personally, he always seemed to be an extremely nice and very professional guy. He will be missed. If you wish to join the fans in expressing condolences on his myspace page just click the title above.

RIP

Escape the Fate


REPRINTED FROM PRESS RELEASE

August 26, 2009 – Los Angeles, CA. – Hot off a headlining slot on the Vans Warped Tour, Las Vegas’ most notorious and controversial rock band, Escape The Fate, have announced they will join Hollywood Undead and Atreyu on “The Vatos Locos Tour” this fall. Touring in support of their hit album, This War Is Ours, Escape The Fate continue their quest for worldwide domination. From their contentiously provocative video for their latest single, “10 Miles Wide,” to their outrageous antics and scandalous rumors that continuously follow them, it’s evident that Escape The Fate are one of the most talked about bands in the country. With an album of hits under their belt, radio air-play building and a hot fall tour in front of them, it seems as though nothing stands in the way of Escape The Fate’s inevitable takeover. Don’t miss fall’s wildest and most unpredictable tour!!
