Craig Owens recently opened up about the split of his former band D.R.U.G.S. (Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows) and the opportunities ahead with Chiodos. Read what Owens had to say below and be sure to catch Chiodos on tour in 2013.

Last time we had talked on the D.R.U.G.S. headliner, I definitely got the feeling that the band was going to stick around a lot longer than it did. What exactly happened after that day to cause the band to split up?

There seems to be at least one birthday in this scene nearly every day, but today is extra special because it’s the day our good friend Nick Martin turns 30.

Nick is an unstoppable force of rock and ferocity, with a kindness and sincerity that is rare in this industry, and today we’re celebrating his special day by featuring five of …

Danny Brown Was “Gypped by a Crackhead” In Detroit

Detroit’s own Danny Brown has starred in a cartoon depiction of his experience being robbed by a crackhead and it is probably one of the funniest videos you will see today. I do not think I have stopped laughing since the video ended 5 minutes ago. Brown is a character.

Watch this drug dealing episode go down after the jump and make sure to share this with your friends. Absolutely hilarious.…

Christofer Drew on Bryan Stars Drama

There was much backlash following the now-infamous Bryan Stars interview with Never Shout Never.  Disregarding whether you are on Never Shout Never’s side or Stars’ side, everyone can agree that the nearly-45 minute interview was down right awkward.

Drew admits to dropping acid earlier in the day and that the drug might have influenced his interaction with the often-criticized interviewer. Drew also shares that he and Bryan Stars’ camera man shared a toke or two after …

Well today, we would like to present you the entire live set for you  so you can get a full scope of what that  night was like. I personally started to watch some of it, but it was frankly too much. Something really went wrong that night, and since Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) is such a seasoned musician I find it very hard to believe that there isn’t some back …
