Ash Costello Is Having Surgery. The Band Leaves Tour.

Ash Costello from New Years Day is having surgery after breaking her leg. Because of this turn of events, the band is having the US tour with Attila, Bad Omens and Cane Hill.

Ash wrote on Facebook: “As you may or may not know, I broke my foot a few hours before we left for tour last week,” she wrote on Facebook.

“Even in a cast I still wanted to play these shows. After my doctor check-up this morning, she showed me the bone in my right foot shifted, which will require surgery to fully fix.”

“I am truly devastated to be missing any shows, especially with how great the tour has been. Thank you for understanding, and I promise we have some amazing things in store for you this year.”

Hopefully, she’ll have a speedy recovery and be back to doing what she does best with the lads, playing music.

Vesta Collide will be joining the Attila tour as their replacements.

Pulsating and headbanging vibes with amazing riffs, this can only be the band known as Eva Plays Dead from Nottingham/Derby.

They’ve been on the underground circuit for a little while and released a few EP’s, but after gigs with the likes of New Year’s Day, Alien Ant Farm, as well as slots at Macmillan Festival and Teddy Rocks among others, they’re ready to take on the world.

What makes Eva Plays Dead unique though?  Well their consistant work ethic is always intruiging to see, from touring to working day jobs and back to recording, it’s quite clear music is something they breathe for. Also, they’ve just been in Cardiff, hopefully working on new material. What’s more is that their off on tour within the next month, showing that they’re comitted people who want to take their music to as many people as humanly possible. Who knows?, they might be playing this new material on their shows with Sumo Cyco and Devilskin.

Adding to this hard working ethic, this band has shown time and time again they won’t let the world get them down. Last year, they were the unfortunate victims of a robbery where most of their gear was stolen, £3,000 in fact but through a GoFundMe page, their fans as well as a donation from Doc Martens, they were able to help fund the money for new equipment. Now six months later, they are gearing up for another tour.

Their last EP ‘Sounds of The Written Word’ featured some of the best sounding tracks form a lesser known band I’ve heard in a while. In fact, they’re one of the best underated band within England in my opinion. If you don’t beieve me, well check these two music video’s. The first is called 1950’s Woman which includes some live footage from the last year.

 

And here’s the latest hard hitting single, Bones.

 

 

Woah! Powerful tracks there and what’s that you ask? When are they touring?

Well, they’re off on tour, opening for Sumo Cyco and Devilskin within the next month.

Here’s the dates.

Brendon Urie Moves House

Panic! At The Disco’s Frontman Brendon Urie has moved House!

The frontman has moved house following constant harassment from fans.

Panic! At The Disco‘s Brendon Urie has revealed he’s moved house following “constant harassment” from fans.

Here’s his full message to fans below.

“Three years ago I bought a house. A dream home, really. I had a studio built in part of the house, wrote an album there, jumped off the roof into the pool countless times. It was incredible.

Also during that time, since my address was public, I would receive letters and/or gifts from fans. This never bothered me. But as time progressed, so did the amout of letters. Not just letters and gifts, this soon changed into visits and constant harassment from fans. It got so bad that I didn’t feel safe in my own home.

So it’s with this statement that I’m announcing I have moved on from what was once a safe place.

I only hope this sheds lights on what inappropriate behavior looks like. Boundaries are boundaries for a reason. Everyone has a right to feel safe and everyone has an obligation to be happy. So I’m taking my family somewhere that might make this a possibility.

Thank you, old house, for giving me a creative space and for lending me a place of rest, even if just for short periods of time.

That being said, I would LOVE to continue reading your letters and gifts. So I leave you with an address nowhere near me that I’ll have checked periodically. Thank you, love ya.
