Fyre Fest attendees settle class action

Fyre Fest attendees settle class action

Four years ago, the Fyre Festival was a complete disaster with rich attendees buying expensive tickets, being flown to a remote island, only to find out that most bands had not shown up due to non-payment, that food was scare, and there were no real accommodations. Fyre co-founder Billy McFarland pled guilty to two counts of wire fraud in federal court in Manhattan and admitted to using fake documents to attract investors to put more than $26 million into his company. He is currently serving his six year sentence.

Meanwhile, ticket holders filed a class action against the festival. That suit recently settled for all 277 members of the class action. Each will receive $7,200 which essentially wraps up the matter. Meanwhile, Fyre festival promotor Ja Rule rule is selling a Fyre Festival related tweet for $80,000, in case you feel like… "investing."

Check out the new track by T-Tops!

Check out the new track by T-Tops!

Today, we are pleased to debut the new track by T-Tops!

"Palomino" is the band's new tune and when people think of the word palomino, tnhey usually think of fun, pony rides. That does NOT apply here. This is a low, mean, swinging noise-rock smasher. This track punches like Unsane and has the unhinged vitriol of late era Black Flag. There is a lot of heavy riffage, a lot of growling, and a TON of psychic venom. It is NOT a joy ride… but it sure rocks.

Speaking to Punknews, Singer/Guitarist Patrick Waters said, "This song is another chunky riff, slapper, but more quiet-loud dynamics. The lyrics are all over the place. Some of it deals with the highs and lows of blindly navigating the mental health obstacle course and eventually acquiescing to the routine.”

Staring at a Static Screen is out May 28 and you can pick it up right here! But, you can check out the band's new song, below, right now!
