Denver ‘Riot Fest’ Finds New Location

Having been denied a permit to take place at May Farms in Byers, CO, this fall, the Denver ‘Riot Fest‘ has now found a new home. It will be held at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO from September 19th-21st. The organizers of the festival said of the move:

Riot Fest & Sideshow in Denver. Thank you for being patient this past week. We are thrilled to announce the new venue will be Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in downtown Denver located at 1701 Bryant St, Denver, CO 80204. All tickets will be honored at the new location and refunds for those who purchased camping spots will be forthcoming.

We have a lot of information for you, so please read everything carefully.

Unfortunately, some people didn’t want YOU or US in their town. Since we were forced to move Riot Fest away from its inaugural home in Byers, CO, we are bringing Byers to you at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in downtown Denver on Sept. 19-21st. Plans include turfing the parking lot of the stadium and bringing all the things to love about a farm (tractors, hay bales, etc) together with all the things to love about a fair (rides, pie eating contest, apple bobbing, etc).

Thank you Riot Fest fans and family for being patient this past week and thank you for standing alongside us. And even though Riot Fest will be at Mile High Stadium this year, we have officially filed an appeal with Arapahoe County as of this morning because we know we are right. Again, all tickets will be honored at the new location and refunds for those who purchased camping spots will be forthcoming.”

As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis Denied Custody Credits Towards His Prison Sentence

As I Lay Dying‘s Tim Lambesis was back before the Honorable Judge Carlos Armour in San Diego, CA’s North County Superior Courthouse today, July 18th. The purpose of Lambesis‘ latest appearance was an attempt to have the near year he spent on house arrest leading up to his trial deducted from his six-year prison sentence.

The judge denied Lambesis‘ request, ultimately deciding that he was not entitled to the custody credits. Radio.com was on hand for the proceedings during which the judge decided that Lambesis‘ house arrest status was that of electronic surveillance while out on bail, rather than being held in custody. Lambesis has most recently been locked up at the George F. Bailey Detention Facility in San Diego, CA.

Lambesis was of course handed down that sentence this past May, after having pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. Lambesis had been shown to have attempted to have hired an undercover cop posing as a hitman to murder his then estranged wife Meggan Lambesis.

Suicide Silence‘s “You Can’t Stop Me” deluxe edition bonus tracks weren’t the only extra’s the band had in store for fans. As they have now revealed, a bonus track titled “Dogma: I Am God” is hidden 4:20 seconds after the album’s closing track “Ouroboros” ends.

That bonus track was only included on 1000 standard and 1000 deluxe edition copies of the record however. They have no plans to release it either digitally or physically again. You can watch the band discuss that below. “You Can’t Stop Me” was released earlier this week.
