Following four year ban, Tyler, The Creator's first UK show shut down

Following four year ban, Tyler, The Creator's first UK show shut down

This weekend, Tyler, The Creator was supposed to play the UK for the first time in four years. He was previously banned from entering the UK for three to five years in 2015 by the Home Office. That office stated that the rapper “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.”

However, this weekend, just before the show was supposed to take place, Tyler annoucned that the show would be moved before the event was canceled all together. In a now-deleted tweet, Tyler said that the “cops cancelled it” due to overcrowding. By contrast, local authorities have stated that the venue decided to cancel the show, not police, due to disruptive behavior by the audience who were outside the venue hours early.

Poison Idea undergoes lineup change

Poison Idea has changed its lineup. The band, which will Toru Europe soon, announced its new lineup as: Jerry A, Chris Carey, Jeff Walter, Chris Cuthbert and Andrew Stromstad.

The band stated: "Due to family commitments, job schedules or swelling of the head/ego, all of the old guitarists are out of the picture. Poison Idea has decided to pull an unplayed card out of the deck and tour Europe with a brand new guitarist. You know I won't settle for anything short of genius. So this summer joining Chris Carey, Jeff Walter, Chris Cuthbert and myself on stage… ladies and germs, introducing Andrew Stromstad. He's one of the best guitarist I've ever played with, I know you won't be disappointed. Hail." Their last album was Confuse & Conquer in 2015.

On The Cinder announce East Coast USA tour

On The Cinder announce East Coast USA tour

Buffalo, NY's On The Cinder have announced their "Creep Down the Coast Tour" of the East Coast USA for the month of June. OtC's most recent album, The Fight Against Ourselves was released in 2016, but the profile on the website states that they have been working on new material for a follow-up, so I'd be surprised if you don't hear new music during their live show. They have also been touring pretty consistently for the past few years (PN's TomTrauma picked up one of their shows this past February, and you read his review HERE).

You can check out the band's video for their song "Queen of Wands," as well as those tour dates, below.
