My Crashdiet merchandise has finally arrived! I really need to go and start altering my pink denim vest I bought a while ago to go with it. I need to buy spikes... a lot of spikes. Look at these hotties on my new shirt and poster? If people tell me I stare too much at myself wearing this, I'm not narcissistic, I'm just busy drooling especially on the two blond guys.
Glamour and lingerie photoshoot;
I had received back the photos from the first photoshoot I had with Lieven Lens previous week. I think it's time to share them with you as I already have uploaded them on some of my other pages and in my gallery here! I'm quite satisfied with the results, I hope you'll like them too?
It's reacting to very heavy drinking, partying, and lack of sleep. ...Also withdrawal from my medication, which I left at home thinking I'd be back in the morning... But actually the following afternoon.
Triton Festival: NYC, September 5th-7th
Flyer Posted Plus Full Lineup Announced!
Last 5 bands announced:
The Birthday Massacre
[Toronto, Canada :: Metropolis Records]
Voted 'Favorite Band' by the members of VampireFreaks, The Birthday Massacre has had a huge following on the VampireFreaks site (and worldwide) for years now. The band was formed in 1999 and independently produced and recorded their first two albums, Nothing and Nowhere and Violet. Due to their independent success, in 2005 they were approached and signed by Metropolis Records and the band began its steady climb to reaching a much wider audience, and now has a total of 5 studio albums. In the last few years, the band has been performing internationally, traveling extensively across Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and Europe.
London After Midnight was formed in the 1990s by Sean Brennan. Unlike most music projects, LAM has retained and nurtured the progressive political and socially aware element of the later punk scene that virtually vanished from the music scene in the early 90s. London After Midnight has headlined and co-headlined concerts and major festivals around the world to crowd of over 30,000 people with bands like The Cure, Green Day, HIM, and countless other major artists. Each of London After Midnight's releases have charted in the top 10 and top 20 of the European DAC and alternative charts. This will be LAM's first NYC performance in over 5 years.
Modulate have supported Alec Empire, VNV Nation and Combichrist on major international tours as well as numerous national and international festival appearances, headline tours and shows around the world. After scoring dancefloor success with his own material, Skullfuck, Detonation and Robots releases, Modulate has become one of the hottest remixers in the alternative electro scene. The bands most recent release, Robots, gave them their biggest hit yet, peaking at #3 in the German Alternative Chart, giving them their first magazine cover and receiving rave reviews across the media...stamping their way into many journalists and broadcasters Best Of 2012 charts.
Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys. As a musician, he is a songwriter whose music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a Con audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his song "Brains!" from the Cartoon Network show "The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy". Voltaire's live shows are highly theatrical -full of stories and games. The theatrical quality of his performances is not surprising; Voltaire has been directing commercials and animating short films for the last twenty years.
First taking the stage in 2011, Candy Brain has blended inspiration from synth pop, industrial rock, and various video game soundtracks to deliver a hard hitting, yet melodic experience with lyrical concepts of love, irony, and comic books. Having shared the stage with acts such as BILE, Orgy, Davey Suicide, and Vampire Everywhere, Candy Brain has developed a continuously growing cult following, and ravages the stage with presence and energy.
Just in time for their new album "Tears on Tape", these "love metal" rockstars from Finland have amassed a huge worldwide fanbase and have been producing records for over 20 years.
Jet catches up with Ville Vallo and talks about the sounds of the new album, his dad's sex shop, life as a sex symbol, the current state of the goth scene, his tower in finland, and his thoughts on kids and marriage. And since the girls kept asking - no he's not married! LOL
"Not yet, not that I know of. I’m the lone wolf in the band, so maybe one day. When you’re in a band it takes a lot of your energy. It takes a lot of your time. It’s good and bad. Its something that you have to dedicate yourself to, otherwise it won’t go anywhere. I am happy for the rest of the guys…My bass player being married happily for fucking 11 years. The drummer has got a kid. The keyboarder has a couple of kids. So does our guitar player. I’m happy and kinda jealous of them. That they can juggle between those two things, being a dad and being a rock and roller as well. I still haven’t learned how to. "
Tonight was probably the worse night I had in 3 weeks. While relaxing and just getting over a migraine, my uncle comes into the living to argue with me. I sat there listening to it all. So far this entire semester of school he has been saying that if I don't get a 4.0 GPA then I have failed school in his eyes. Very nice, because pressuring someone will help them succeed. Tonight, he came into the living room to yell at me about: College, A music video that he has been trying to make for the past year, work, rent, and finally that he will be leaving and he expects me to go with him. Now the problem with his useless arguing is that I have things on my plate that I need to take care of before I can do anything he wants. I have my own life that I need to get together. I do have work coming up this summer as a construction worker. The music video can wait. I do plan on leaving soon and when I do I will barely be coming by this place just because I am tired of being spoken down to. Currently, he wants to interrupt my school work just to handle his music. Now how the fuck am I going to focus on school when I keep getting interrupted. I am an A+ student on my own accord.
My cousin wants to leave right now as a matter of fact. My aunt is a nervous reck because of him. Before they left he said and I quote "Fuck you all". I'm tired of the struggle that I have been going through for the past year. I need to get something better but at the sametime things come as they arrive. That's life. I will take my uncle not as a disappointment but as a lesson of who I will not become.
