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.

Interviews: Steve Souza (Exodus)

Posted by johng on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image Exodus is an explosive band. One of the very creators of thrash metal, the band has had more than 28 people tear through their ranks. No doubt, the vicious, berserk music itself played a part in blasting people into, and out of, the band. Plus, the members’ huge personalities certainly exacerbated the band’s volatility.

To that point, vocalist Steve Souza is back in the band after ten years in exile. (He also had a previous decade-long split from the band starting in 1993!) Fittingly, the band’s brand new record is called Blood In, Blood Out, where the band jostles back together and tries not to blast apart all while cutting out fierce thrash metal.

To see how the bonding is going, features editor John Gentile spoke to Souza about making amends, the new LP and that time he smoked weed and saw AC/DC and Van Halen… at the same show!
