October 16th - The original 'Necessary Response' album, 'Blood Spills Not Far From the Wound' is going to be re-released as a new remastered version under the 'Aesthetic Perfection' name. These songs were originally intended to be released under 'Aesthetic Perfection', so Daniel Graves is going to be reclaiming this album with some extra added goodies so that it can all be under the same project.
"Revived with newly recorded vocals, and new artwork. Remixed, re-mastered, and lead by the unreleased B-Side “Never Enough”. Also features a piano rework of “Devotion” with Lauren Krothe (as heard on Imperfect and the title track from All Beauty Destroyed). This is not your typical album re-release, it is a complete re-envisioning of the record that never was. Graves has finally brought this album back into the Aesthetic Perfection fold, bringing the band one step closer to what he’s always wanted it to be."

Check out the new Aesthetic Perfection video for 'Never Enough':
"It was a combination of despair and depression and insomnia, and it was very difficult," Corner explains, "It took me a long time to get through it, but I learned a lot about myself, and I developed a new set of mental tools that allowed me survive.
"For about a year, I really thought that music was one of the things that was hurting me psychologically," he continues. "I went though a lot of therapy, and eventually I realized that it's all down to my own choices. And I realized that it wasn't the music that was hurting me, it was just that I had to reprogram myself to approach things in a different way, and it became very clear to me that I still wanted to make music more than ever."
Corner emerged from this period of intense self-examination with a new attitude towards his role as a musician and artist. He also relocated from Berlin, which had served as the London native's base since 2008, to the sunnier environs of Los Angeles. The change of scene, and the artist's renewed enthusiasm, are reflected throughout Metanoia.
"I spent seven years in Berlin, and I absolutely love that city," Corner notes. "But I could have been anywhere, because I was quite isolated. And I would always end making the records in winter, which is very dark and oppressive in Berlin, so, combined with the emotional turmoil of the writing, I ended up digging my own hole. So I decided to get out and go to L.A.
"This is the first record I've made in a long time without being manically stressed," Corner notes. "I was very conscious of wanting to move into a more relaxed phase of my life, so I intentionally took a lot of the time pressure and work stress out of record-making, and made it as easy on myself as I could. That was very different, because each time I've made a record in the past, there's been a tour booked and a manager breathing down my neck, and the depression came from that stress. So this was like going back to the beginning, where you're just doing it for pure enjoyment."

Hey guys, I know we remind you about this every once in a while, but it does seem to be an ongoing issue that we still get reports about.
So basically - VF Admins will never contact you on skype or kik or any other network outside of VF for any type of 'modelling opportunities' or anything of the sort. I know it's sad, but people actually fall for this and get naked for random strangers on the internet.
Remember kids - be careful and use your common sense. Why would we contact you on skype or kik if we can just contact you on VF? Sorry we don't want you to be a VF model, we don't want to send you free merch, and we don't want you to get naked.
Don't trust everyone you meet on the internet.
Psyclon Nine frontman Nero Bellum has joined Hollywood, CA Industrial Rock act Black Lodge as touring Bass and Synth player.

A music video for the album's first single "Thoughts" has been premiered at LA Weekly and can be viewed by following the link below: http://www.laweekly.com/music/a-year-after-the-death-of-bassist-ventura-xiii-black-lodge-returns-premiere-5979786

Yea, I don't know what's really going on. But if you are going to come at people try to be respectful not to insults others outside of this. I have been dealing with mental disabilities and have been receiving SSI to help me survive. Recently I got an OK job but don't make enough to get off of SSI and am looking to try to work at the airport for better pay. I used to take pills and was taken off of them because I got better. I don't know Casey but if he is sick then he needs to continue seeking help and don't stop the meds. But he also need supervision if he's making problems for people. Maybe he'll get better but it's kind of rude to make it sound as if it's bad for someone to use SSI to survive. I've been on my own for two years, and it took me a while to find the job I have. It's there for people to use temporarily until they are well. If you didn't use it then that's fine for you. But it's helped through and if I get this job at the airport I won't need it anymore. So try to be considerate of those who maybe in a similar situation. Because I find that a bit rude.
Hey guys sorry we had a little bit of downtime today. Had some DDOS attacks again, plus we did some database updates that took the site down for a few minutes.

However we have turned on extra security settings for now and you may notice that on occasion you may get a 'checking browser' screen to make sure that you are a real person viewing the site and not an attacker.

AWESOME!!! Thanks for sharing Jet. I am actually a member of the Street Team on Facebook and was wanting to figure out some ways to promote on your website for the new tour going on now. So excellent post!!! Are you going to the New York show? I get to see it next Thursday here in Indianapolis and am really anxious to see it. I thought the first one was amazing and this one looks just as good, if not better. Thanks again. HAIL! and always Alleluia! m/
