Refused Expand “Reunion” Tour


Refused have already been confirmed to perform at a couple of big name music festivals this upcoming Summer, and now the band can add some solo tour stops to that list.

The newly added dates will begin on May 25 in Santa Ana at the Observatory and will wrap up on June 5 in Washington D.C. at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Two weeks later, they will begin the second leg of their music festival take over at Canada’s Amnesia Rockfest.

From Autumn to Ashes Announce First Post-Hiatus Show


Good news From Autumn to Ashes fans; the band have announced their first official show since revealing they were coming out of hiatus.

The band, who went on hiatus in 2008, revealed that their first “welcome back” show will take place on May 15 at Revolution Music Hall in Amityville; a kind of pre-Skate and Surf Festival show which will begin the following day.

For those wanting to go to the show, tickets will go on sale this upcoming Friday (March 20), but as a warning, music fans who attend shows at that venue have pointed out that it has a very small maximum capacity (some say a 250 max limit) which means tickets will sell out quickly.

But if you don’t mind waiting a couple of extra days to have a lot of space and be jamming out with other From Autumn to Ashes fans, the Long Island group will be reuniting on stage during this year’s Skate and Surf Festival alongside Acceptance, Thrice, and Poison the Well.

If you’re a Canadian FATA fan and feel a little bummed about both shows being in the United States, don’t be because they will be heading to Montebello for their annual Amnesia Rockfest in June. 

Canada’s Amnesia Rockfest Announce Tenth Anniversary Line-Up and Reunions

Canada’s Amnesia Rockfest will be celebrating its tenth anniversary in a big way this year with artists like System of a Down, Linkin Park, The Offspring, and Slayer making the trip to Montebello, QC for the weekend-long festivities.

But even with the big name headliners for this year’s event, it looks like the theme might be reunions and anniversaries. One of the several bands reuniting this year at the show will be Thrice, who officially said good-bye to fans in 2012.

Late last year, the band posted a cryptic photograph on their social media accounts with the band’s name and “2015.” Since then, there have been no updates unless you count frontman Dustin Kensrue releasing a new song yesterday or drummer Riley Breckenridge being part of Angels and Airwaves.

The new year is a month and a half in and it looks like one of the big things coming for them in 2015 is a reunion at the show. The timing of the reunion couldn’t come at a better time for fans of the California band since their fourth studio record, Vheissu, turns ten in October.

Sadly, this is as close as we have gotten to any updates from the Thrice camp.

But don’t leave it to Thrice to have all the fun during the weekend; Refused, From Autumn to Ashes and Atreyu will all be reuniting during the weekend-long festival. but like we said, it seems Amnesia is taking a page out of Riot Fest’s book and having bands performing some important albums from their discography in full.

The Offspring will perform Americana, the Deftones will perform Around the Fur and Rancid will perform…And Out Come the Wolves.

Check out the full line-up below.


Amnesia Rockfest will take place during the weekend of June 18-21.

From Autumn to Ashes Confirm Reunion


Earlier in the week, there had been speculation as to whether or not From Autumn to Ashes would be reuniting.

The speculation was confirmed to be true by the band who announced they would be reuniting. As of now, there is only one planned show; their fist since the group went on hiatus in 2008.

Read the band’s straight to the point confirmation:

“Here you go. a LITTLE bit early. We’ll be playing at Amnesia Rockfest this June in Montebello, Canada. Us and Refused are the only two bands announced so far but we hear it’s a pretty stellar line up. We’ll play some more shows as well.”

From Autumn to Ashes announced plans to go on an indefinite hiatus back in 2008 right before releasing their last release, Live at Looney Tunes. Amnesia Rockfest will be their first return to the music world after a six-year break,
