Many of you wrote in with news about some serious problems with this past weekend's Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, Québec. The festival had a notable lineup with bands including Rise Against, Rancid, Social Distortion, The Offspring, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Flag and Screeching Weasel.
However, many sources have covered the backlash after what appear to be severe logistical problems. The Ottawa Citizen spoke to attendees as well as bands like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Bassist Joe Gittleman commented:
One attendee, Adam Moody, was stuck waiting in a lengthy will-call line for three hours outside the venue trying to pick up pre-purchased tickets. Eventually, he gave up and had to leave. Another, Dan Edmunds waited two hours for a shuttle bus to see The Offspring and despite leaving the show early to beat the rush, Edmunds found that the shuttle bus to their campsite was full and was the last of the night leaving them stranded at the venue.
Palms, the group featuring Chino Moreno of The Deftones and Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer of Isis, are now streaming their debut full length. The album features six tracks and runs 47 minutes, putting it more in line with Isis material like Holy Tears or Panopticon than the Deftones' 2012 album Koi No Yokan . The album is due out June 25, 2013.
