Knuckle Puck Drop New Music Video, Fall Tour Dates

image

Knuckle Puck is giving fans a lot of good news for a Monday.

To begin, the Chicago-based band has released the music video for one of the track off of their new album Copacetic, “True Contrite.”

When asked by Billboard, who exclusively premiered the music video earlier in the day, about how the music video was made, guitarist Kevin Maida revealed that it was a painstaking process, but well worth it in the end.

“The making of the ‘True Contrite’ music video was one of the most painstaking, rewarding experiences ever,” said Maida.

“We basically had to shoot two music videos, one with the walls blank, then manually tape all the Polaroids to the wall, and then shoot everything again with all the Polaroids on the wall. It took a long time, but the video came out perfect.”

Check out the group’s “perfect” video for “True Contrite” below.

In addition to the new music video, the band has also announced a month and a half long tour in the Fall in support of Copacetic which was released on July 31 through Rise Records. Heading on the road alongside them will be Seaway, Sorority Noise, and Head North.

“When putting together a lineup for the headline, it was basically a no-brainer to have Seaway on it,” explained Maida about the lineup for the group’s first headlining tour.

“Our first tour ever was with Seaway, so it only seemed right to put some of our greatest friends on our first headline tour. Head North and Sorority Noise are some of our favorite bands both consist of truly genuine people. It’s going to be a great fall.”

The Fall tour will kick off on Oct. 14 at the Hard Luck Bar in Toronto and wrap up on Nov. 21 at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland.

Pre-sales for the tour are currently available on the band’s website. For the complete list of tour dates, scroll down.

Front Porch Step Suspends Upcoming Tours, Tourmates Speak Out

image

There have been major developments in the Front Porch Step controversy over the last few days, some that will majorly affect those who had tickets or were planning to see shows where he would be performing at.

Allison Weiss announced she would no longer be touring with Jake Mcelfresh on the United Kingdom tour they were scheduled to be on, but she did say that there was hope the tour would go on without Mcelfresh.

Now, Mcelfresh has spoken out once again, revealing that he has suspended not only the U.K. tour, but has also, willingly, dropped off this year’s Vans Warped Tour.

“As I posted 3 days ago, I am taking the appropriate time to assess these very serious allegations against me and I am not taking them lightly. Until I can do that in a complete manner with all the information I have at my disposal, I will not be continuing with any current touring activities for the time being.”

But Mcelfresh isn’t the only one speaking out against the allegations and the impact it’s had on his tour schedule. Have Mercy and Head North have released statements about the issues at hand.

From Have Mercy:

“We have been receiving your emails, tweets, and posts regarding us not responding to the allegations brought upon Front Porch Step.  While we have been planning to disassociate ourselves from FPS for several days, we have been working very hard behind the scenes to book our own tour so we are not left stranded for the spring. 

We, Have Mercy, in no way condone the alleged actions that have come to light over the past week, and hope that message above all is clear to our fans. Safety in music, and life, should never be risked for selfish decisions. We were incredibly excited at the opportunity to hit the road this spring, and that is still our top priority.

Over the coming weeks, we hope to have news about a new tour with Head North and other trusted friends.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

From Head North:

“We are sorry to have remained silent about this issue for so long.  We do not in anyway condone the situation at hand with Front Porch Step regarding the recent allegations that presented themselves this past week.  

The whole situation is incredibly upsetting and our thoughts go to anyone at all affected by this. We are very sorry to anyone planning on coming to a show, but have been working on an alternative plan to make sure we can still come to towns this spring with new music in hand.

We will post more information about that as it becomes available.”

The petition on Change.org against Mcelfresh has received over 12,000 signatures from supporters since it was started last week.
