General awareness

Mia Matsumiya (Kayo Dot, Gregor Samsa) has shared on an instagram account some of the sexist, racist and sexual message she has received over the years on social media. Other women have also started sharing messages they have received, proving, if needs be, that you don’t need to be a « celibrity » to attract aggressive comments, you just need to be a woman.

Now, for some music business silliness, Victory Records is having problems with Spotify for « not properly paying publishing revenues due to Victory Records‘ artists in blatant violation of US Copyright laws. » As a result, all release from Victory Records were pulled from Spotify until the matter is resolved. Isn’t it funny to see the boss of Victory being up in arms because « The bottom line is that artists and songwriters are not being paid and fans of Victory‘s artists cannot listen to the music. »? A label that’s legendary from not paying their artist what they are due. Members of Counterparts had something to say about the situation but I’m sure members of A Day to Remember could also share a few stories.

Curiosity

Abe Cunningham from the Deftones reminisce about some promo pictures taken of the band over the years.

Oh my god, why?!

This is a remix but that’s probably the worst song of the year.
