Like Moths To Flames Set Title To New Album

Like Moths To Flames have chosen “When We Don’t Exist” as the title to their new album. The group tracked the outing with Will Putney (For Today, The Human Abstract) and will release it on November 08th. The cover art for it can be found over at the bands Facebook, while group vocalist Chris Roetter offered:

“Our new album will be titled When We Don’t Exist. The title is meant to convey the idea of not “existing” the way that we have before: Nnot being yourself anymore, not believing what you used to believe, not feeling how you used to feel. We gave the album title to Daniel Wagner of Design By DDub and asked him to portray the dark side of life, showing the troubles that we all face as people & the ghosts that we deal with.”

There’s a cheap joke in that album title, but it’s Tuesday and who wants to start the week off with cruelty?

“To say that the chance For Periphery to open for Dream Theater is a dream come true would be a gross understatement. Dream Theater has been one of my favorite bands for about as long as I can remember. I started taking guitar seriously and bought my first 7 string because of John Petrucci. If it weren’t for Dream Theater, Periphery simply would not exist. I can’t express in words just how excited we are for the opportunity to share the stage with them.”

Ex-My Chemical Romance Drummer Speaks Out On His Dismissal

Recently dismissed drummer Michael Pedicone (ex-The Bled) has spoken out to regarding his recent firing from My Chemical Romance.

Here’s what he had to say on the matter:

“To the media, my colleagues in the music industry, and, most importantly, the fans of My Chemical Romance.

As many of you have heard by now, on Thursday evening I was let go as the touring drummer for MCR. The ensuing hours have been difficult for many reasons, but particularly because the actions that led to my dismissal have been twisted and misinterpreted via rumour mongering on the internet. With this, I’d like to put the rumours to rest.

Almost as soon as I began touring with MCR I ran into problems with a member of the band’s crew who I’ll not name. The problems were many, big and small, but some of them were large enough that they began to greatly impact me and, by extension, my family. I’d reached my wits’ end, and I made what was certainly the poorest decision of my life.

Rather than address the issues that I had with the crew member in an open and honest manner, I tried to make them look irresponsible. My intention was to make this person look incompetent. I had no intention of profiting whatsoever. Again, I cannot overstate how poor my judgment was in this situation; it was a tremendous mistake, and it’s one I’ll regret for years to come.

I would have liked an opportunity to share my side of the story with MCR, an opportunity to express my remorse. I was never given one.

I’d like to thank MCR’s members, crew, and supporters for giving me some of the best musical experiences of my life in the past several months. However brief our partnership, it was an honour and a dream come true to play with such a talented bunch of individuals. I wish MCR the best of luck in the future, and I’m looking forward to my next endeavour.

Thank you, Michael Pedicone.”
