Stick To Your Guns have announced their annual charitable ‘Keeping Warm In A Cold World‘ shows. Opening acts include Being As An Ocean and To The Wind with Trial appearing at the 12/13 and 12/14 stops. The four-date run will see a portion of proceeds from each show go towards The Wildlife Defence League. Singer Jesse Barnett said of their choice:

“This year we have decided to give the proceeds of “Keeping Warm In A Cold World IV” to our friends in The Wildlife Defence League. You don’t have to be vegan to understand the importance of what they do. These brave men and women put themselves on the line in hopes to retain and respect the lives of these animals of which are so important to our continued existence. To continue down this path we are going and to allow the slaughter of apex predators that are so important to our ecosystem is detrimental to our planet and everything on it. I fully support Tommy Knowles and The Wildlife Defense League and we hope that this support can help him and his team continue their not only important but necessary work. We need more big picture thinkers and less impulse addicts.”

Stick To Your Guns fans have awhile to wait for the groups new album, “Disobedient“, as it is currently marked for a February 10th release through Sumerian Records.

Philip H Anselmo Releases Official Statement On The Passing Of Corey Mitchell

Down, etc. frontman Philip H Anselmo has now given an official statement on the untimely passing of his friend and business partner Corey Mitchell. Mitchell died as a result of a heart attack this past Monday morning at Emo’s in Austin, TX, having just wrapped up the second installment of the ‘Housecore Horror Film Festival‘ the weekend prior—a festival which he and Anselmo co-founded. Mitchell was also co-authoring Anselmo‘s long-awaited autobiography in recent years as well.

Anselmo said of Mitchell‘s passing:

“This is stunning. After a weekend of incredible bands, awesome horror films and masses of fantastic people, tragically, unexpectedly, and with heart-crushing reality, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, Corey Mitchell, passed away Monday, October 27th 2014, after the event ended. This is devastating on so many levels, I can’t and won’t go into how tremendous a loss Corey‘s untimely death truly is. I was introduced to Corey first and foremost as a best-selling crime author, and shortly after that meeting I agreed to have him as my co-writer of an unfinished novel I’d been working on. It was his idea to create a horror and film festival that would became The Housecore Horror Festival.

He had a vision, and no one worked harder than him to see the event through. But forget festivals. Forget books. We lost a great friend. From all of us here at Housecore Records, we extend our utmost condolences to his wife, Audra, and his two beautiful young daughters. This is devastating on countless personal levels, and I’m finding it difficult to type these lines. We lost a brother. We lost a great man with a passion for everything that we love. He will be unfathomably missed… RIP Corey. His legacy will never be forgotten, nor will his friendship. With supremely heavy hearts, we mourn. Sincerely – Philip H. Anselmo

Mitchell, who also had made a career as a true crime author, will have a new book titled “Teach Me To Kill” posthumously released in the weeks to come. A fund is also being set up for Mitchell‘s widow Audra and his two daughters.

Ex-DevilDriver Guitarist Jeff Kendrick Speaks On What’s Next

DevilDriver announced that they would be going on hiatus yesterday and that both guitarist Jeff Kendrick and drummer John Boecklin had stepped down from the outfit. Kendrick himself has spoken out on what’s next for himself, stating:

“Want to give a special shout out to my best friend and musical partner since I was 15 @johnboecklin we are both about to embark on our own journeys for now but I have never played with a finer musician in my entire life. I can tell you this: I have heard his new music and even I could not even conceive how fucking brilliant it is. This is next level shit that will completely blow all of you away.

While I re-assess my next musical steps I am extremely excited to fulfill another dream of taking my company All Axess to the next level and cementing us in the music and entertainment business. There are a lot of things wrong with the music industry and many who are outside are clamoring for a solution.I personally feel that the solution must start from within, from an artists perspective and not saying that I have all the answers, but I am confident that our plan will help move things in a different direction.

Again, utmost respect to all of you for being so accepting of my decision. Please welcome the newest members of DevilDriver with open arms-it is never easy for anyone to change band lineups. My heart is heavy today but I look towards the future and what it may bring.

With Love,

Jeff
