Fresh Music Mondays: Panic at the Disco ‘LA Devotee’

Hey everyone! I apologize for the lack of updates. I’ve been busy catching up on my school work. Once I’m in holiday vacation(Dec.16),  I will be uploading frequently. But for now expect some sporadic posting sorry…..

Anyways, hope you guys are having an amazing Monday! For the past few I have been a tad obsessed with Panic at the Disco, they are definitely a band who has flair and style. Not to mention their music videos are trippy as hell. They recently released a new single titled “LA Devotee,” the song is off their new album “Death of a Bachelor” which is out Jan. 15, 2016. The song has been on repeat in my Spotify playlist. The song is filled with catchy hooks and  Brandon Urie’s voice is phenomenal in this fast-paced song.

Following the Terror Attacks in Paris, Walk the Moon is The Latest Band to Cancel Tours Around Europe.

12219473_10153760671197558_5676874616693668911_n (1)Bad news for European fans of Walk the Moon! The band has announced they are cancelling their upcoming shows in the UK and Europe due to the terrorist attacks in Paris. The band released a statement via Facebook stating:

As world events continue to develop, the fire in us burns harder, hotter – our desire to fight back, to play music despite fear and hate, to bring some light to those who, perhaps, need it more than ever right now. But after we wrestled with ourselves, losing sleep, sharing nightmares, we came to this realization: even stronger than our desire to play is our need to protect the people we love: our families, our crew, and the thousands of fans who would be coming to see us. The risk is too much for us to bear. For that reason, we are sorry to announce that we have decided to cancel our upcoming eight shows in the UK + Europe. This hurts to write, and we know so many of you have been hurt more deeply than we can imagine. Our hearts go out to you, especially to those directly impacted. When we return in February 2016 for our biggest European tour yet, together we can sing, scream, shake the ground with our feet, and maybe even heal a little. Until then, stay strong and continue to let music fill you up with love for life. We love you and we’ll see you soon. <+>

Eagles of Death Metal have Broken Their Silence in a Touching Statement

Chapman Baehler

The California rock band Eagles of Death Metal have finally broken their silence regarding the terrifying Paris terror attacks on Friday.

The band were performing at Paris concert hall Le Bataclan, when the venue was attacked. Gunmen fired shots inside the concert hall and seized more 100 hostages, killing 89 people. At least 129 were murdered in the six other attacks that took place in Paris that night.

This is the first time the band has officially addressed the public. Last Friday, the only information they posted on social media was to inform the public, they were still looking for missing members of their crew.

It was later revealed the group’s merch manager, Nick Alexander, was killed in the violence. As were members of their record label: Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez.

The group has otherwise remained silent.

Bands statement:

While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France. Our thoughts and hearts are first and foremost with our brother Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.

Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.

We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil. 

All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.

Vive la musique, vive la liberté, vive la France, and vive EODM.
