The week before Next Big Thing is never without some drama. Sublime With Romeis not breaking up, despite an on-stage disagreement between drummer Bud Gaugh and manager Mike "Cheez" Brown last weekend. The disagreement seemed to involve Cheez jumping on-stage to jam with the band at the end of the show.
AWOLNATION mainman Aaron Bruno spoke with MTV about his band and their genre-bending album Megalithic Symphony.
Both Sublime With Rome and AWOLNATION will perform at 97X Next Big Thing this Saturday. Details here.
Thrice and Thursday are both on indefinite hiatus. Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue says Thrice won't be a full-time band anymore while he concentrates on his religious work. A statement from Thursday cites "personal difficulties."
Coheed & Cambria welcome back drummer Josh Eppard. Eppard left the band in 2006 to combat substance abuse. This move follows a rollercoaster year for the band's lineup. Bassist Michael Todd was out after he robbed a pharamacy to feed his own drug addiction, and drummer Chris Pennie left to focus on other music projects a few weeks ago.
