The Movielife reunites

Posted by kira on Monday, December 15, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EST)
The Movielife In an interview with Noisey, The Movielife have announced that they're reuniting. They had a reunion show in 2011, but officially went on hiatus in in 2003. Vinnie Caruana told Noisey:

[...] I think me and Brandon have reached this point in our lives where we can be at peace and be happy with playing Movielife shows and we feel right about it at the same time for the first time in a very long time. So we just poked around with the other guys to see if they felt the same way and it seems as though everybody is feeling really positive and confident and happy about us being together and playing some shows.

Brandon Reilly added:

[...]I haven’t played music in so long and we started reminiscing about the old days and thought it would be really fun. So we kind of sat on it for, actually not a long time, because I’ve been hanging out with Phil [Navetta, bass] a little bit as well and I ran it by him and asked if he’d want to play shows again and he said “Absolutely!” It was very easy and everyone thought it would be really fun, so it came together very organically and very fast.

The band has a show scheduled for Irving Plaza in NYC on February 7. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 19 at noon. You can read the complete interview with the band here. You can also click Read More to relive their video for "Walking On Glass,"

New species of snail named after Joe Strummer

Posted by johng on Monday, December 15, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EST)
Joe Strummer According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, a snail has been named after Joe Strummer. The snail is called A. strummeri. Shannon Johnson, a researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, explained “Because they look like punk rockers in the 70s and 80s and they have purple blood and live in such an extreme environment, we decided to name one new species after a punk rock icon.”
