“We were supposed to start our Viva The Underdogs North American Revolution tour in just three days, but as Winston stated earlier, we are rescheduling to 2021. Our team has worked extremely hard to get the new shows on the calendar and we are very grateful and pleased that we will be coming back in September 2021!

Unfortunately, it was inevitable that some shows had to be cancelled, which we very much regret. We will be adding more dates in the near future, but can’t disclose at the moment. LA, we haven’t forgot our promise to you either…

Stay safe and take care of each other,
Winston, Luke, Jeff, Ben and Jia“

“I think that people might be caught off-guard by this album, and I hope they are, because I want to smash that cliché that if you’re into death metal or hardcore you can’t play or listen to other kinds of music.”

Putney commented:

“To be honest I was initially torn about doing this. The distaste and rage I have for our systemic issues in this country are more palpable than they ever have been. But I am NOT the voice of the oppressed, and I would never pretend to be.

What I can do is sit down with my fellow artists, friends, peers, and heroes alike and start a conversation about what we CAN do to support institutions for positive change, because something HAS to change. And the money that will roll in from this event will go to the experts. The ACLU. The Civil Rights organization that has fought for the purest form of free speech, justice, and equality for ONE HUNDRED YEARS (let one hundred years sink in for a second). The work that they are heavily involved in today aims to tackle these systemic issues.

The artists who will appear on this livestream come from different corners of life, different upbringings, different tax brackets. Naturally, some people are more comfortable expressing their opinions and beliefs to the public than others. I ask that you do not expect fire and brimstone from everyone, and do not scorn those who’d like to have a lighthearted conversation about music. The act of participating and donating sought after items to a worthy charity should be enough for you to understand their intentions.

This raffle will be one for the books. Extremely rare items, tons of merch, test presses and limited vinyl, music gear, it goes on and on. A lot of those involved are bringing something special and I truly thank them for parting with sacred items.

The link is live to start donating now. We will be announcing more details and giveaways soon.

If you’d like to participate on any level just message me.

Go big or go home.”

Motionless In White Officially Cancel Tour With Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, & Ovtlier

Motionless In White have officially cancelled their U.S. tour with Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, and Ovtlier due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are still planning to rebook the trek at some point, but they decided to cancel it for the time being so fans can get refunds.

Motionless In White said the following:

“U.S MIW Fans –

After processing the information our band and team have been receiving regarding the uncertain future of live events in the near future, as well as factoring in refund policies from various ticketing companies, we have decided to mark the Black & Blue Tour as “canceled” for the time being.

We fully plan to rebook the tour as early as we can once we start to see live events returning around the world. Though this is a tough decision, considering it “canceled” now allows you to collect refunds and that is what we feel is the best course of action.

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and sane right now. We are looking forward to finally getting back on the road to see you.”

Motionless In White Postpone Tour With Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, & Ovtlier

Motionless In White have postponed their U.S. tour with Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, and Ovtlier due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will be rescheduled later this year.

Motionless In White commented:

“MIW Fans:

We regret to inform you that due to the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to postpone our upcoming Black And Blue Tour to a different timeframe this year. New dates will be announced as soon as we receive the go-ahead from promoters.

We have been waiting as long as we could to see what our options were before making this call, but unfortunately, after talking with venues and promoters, we have no choice. As always, the forefront of our attention in this situation is based on the safety of both the bands and attending fans. As much as we are saddened by the news, we support the actions that are being taken around the world to try and prevent the spread of the virus.

Ticket holders, your tickets will be honored at the future dates. VIP holders, you will be receiving an email this week from LTD regarding your options with your VIP purchase, but as the ticket holders, your VIP’s will also be honored at the future dates.

As for the fans asking about our European and Australian tours in June and July, we unfortunately also found out today that Download has been canceled. We are now awaiting more information on the rest of the festivals and shows. If we can be there, we’ll be there. We will let you know as soon as we know in the coming weeks.

Lastly, we would just like to send a massive thank you to anyone out there that works under the essential business umbrella who are still out there working hard and have been dealing with the close contact risks associated with your job. We appreciate you!

Thank you. We’ll see you in the summer.

– MIW”

Madball, Knocked Loose, Harm’s Way, Siberian Meatgrinder, Hawser, and Dagger Threat have cancelled their European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The following statement was issued:

“We are very sad to announce that due to circumstances out of everyones control (“corona virus”) – Venues have been forced to shutdown shows on our tour routing and more cancellations are inevitable. We will postpone Rebellion 9 to a later time period – If you purchased tickets in advance they will be honored moving forward. I’m sure we speak for ALL the bands involved when we say, we are super bummed that we can’t do this tour. We will begin to work on rescheduling this as soon as we can. Hopefully, we can make it up to everyone sooner than later! Thanks for your understanding and stay healthy.”

Malevolence Premiere Music Video For “Keep Your Distance” Feat. Knocked Loose’s Bryan Garris

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “Keep Your Distance.” This track features Knocked Loose’s Bryan Garris and it will appear on the band’s new EP “The Other Side,” which is set to be released on April 24.

Malevolence told Kerrang! the following:

“‘Keep Your Distance‘ encompasses the difficulty in making the decision to cut off those around you that bring nothing positive to your life. It was written about positive aggression; having the strength to remove and liberate yourself from any negative influence that you see fit – a sentiment that we believe everyone can relate to.”

They also added the following about working with Garris:

“Since the song is short and sweet, we wanted a high energy video that would truly capture the vibe and chaotic nature of our live performances. Bryan hit the studio to record his part a day or two before the tour started and jumped on stage to sing it with us every night with immediate effect.”
