Interviews: Joey Cape (Lagwagon)

Posted by xan on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Lagwagon Hang dropped yesterday and is Lagwagon's first full-length in almost a decade, and everyone is really excited. It's for a good reason, considering that Lagwagon is such a renowned band in the punk scene. But, the question remains: Why was it such a long time between full-lengths? When you are a band as loved as Lagwagon, you would think that you'd feel the need to satiate your fans constant hunger for new music. But, Joey Cape thinks differently, and his reasoning may be part of why Lagwagon has released solid albums for the 20 years they've been around, and this is the first time he's been able to say that the band is 99 percent excited for Hang.

It seemed prudent to speak with Joey and get a full understanding of Hang, so contributing editor Xan Mandell called him up. What followed was a detailed conversation on not only just the writing and recording of Hang and the length of time between full-lengths, but his thoughts on Lagwagon in general, the various themes on Hang, creativity and embracing being a "bitter old man."

Paint It Black announces free show after canceling barricade show

Posted by johng on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
Paint It Black Philadelphia's hardcore institution Paint It Black has engaged in some high level punk rock philosophy regarding their recently canceled show. Originally, the band was scheduled to play a show at The University of Delaware on November 6. However, according to an e-mail from the school's ticketing system, Paint it Black pulled out from the show on September 11, 2014. (Laura Stevenson and Cayetana remain on the bill).

Today, Paint It Black issued a statement explaining their refusal to do the show. They also announced a replacement show. According to the band, the band stated that when they agreed to play the show, they were under the belief that all the details regarding the show had been agreed upon. However, some time after the show was arranged and plane tickets were purchased, the band states that they were informed that there would be barricades at the show. Thus, the band, on or around September 11, informed the venue that they would not play the show due to the barricades.

Instead, tomorrow night, October 30, the band will be playing a free, public show in a non-traditional venue (or perhaps outside?). The band states that due to the nature of the show, they will announce more details about the where and when of the show on the day of the show. You can click Read More for the band's statement, taken from their Facebook, where they muse on the concept of an audience/band division.
