And a few hours after their announcement, they decide to remove 'Blood on The Dancefloor' from the bill, so stay tuned for updates on a replacement support act!
Official post from Combichrist:
To our fans,
As you’ve seen with all of our tours, when we select our support acts, we attempt to bring acts that will help introduce Combichrist to fans outside of our fanbase. This has worked well for us in the past, and it was in this spirit that we invited Blood On The Dance Floor to tour with us. Like all announcements, we knew that this decision would be met with some concern but we thought that the different styles would be the source of conversation. We were not aware of the controversy about their past behavior. It has been difficult to read everything posted today; our sole goal is to bring you a kick ass tour that you can be excited and proud of and it’s become clear that we won’t be able to do that with the choice we made. As a result we have released Blood On The Dance Floor from this tour and are rethinking our direct support. We expect to have a new announcement for you shortly.
Thank you for your honesty and integrity.
You stand by us, we stand by you.

Combichrist: We Love Tour Part 2
July 24, 2014, 02:18:pm
I wouldn't let my future kids around someone who was accused of rape. But nothing could have happened and you're just putting a horrible label on someone that doesn't deserve it. And it isn't right to judge it because you honestly DON'T know if anything happened. That's all that I'm saying. Rape is a horrible issue and with people constantly being raped and others lying about being raped it's hard to tell who's lying and who isn't. People still don't believe that I was date raped. I'm not okay with it, but I know that there's nothing that I can do about it, and I'm tired of trying to get people to understand. I'm lucky enough to be able to get those people out of my life. Dahvie isn't that lucky because everywhere he goes, everything that he does follows him because it's impossible for him to get away from fans and the people who hate him. If he didn't rape anyone can you imagine how that would feel to him? Probably just as bad as I felt having people tell me that I wasn't raped, that I'm just lying because I was "caught cheating". I even had people tell me that if it was rape, I deserved it for trusting the guy. Bottom line, we're all human. We all have emotions. Other than sociopaths. They don't have emotions.
You MUST have a sign or sticker in the picture. No exceptions, no photoshopped signs.

I wanted to say thank you all so much for you're support and love. I could say this the amount of overwhelming gratitude surrounds me. I feel blessed on having all of you in my life. You're friendship is helping me to overcome the dark obstacles in my life and reverse the oceans in darkness of my life, helping me to claim my visions of victory over the negatives. I hope none of you never surrender on me nor give up you're faith and hopes in me,
I still continue this endless journey into the light after so many years since childhood of drowning inside darkness.
Despite how many times my demons attempt to dismantle and corrupted me from the inside out they will never witness my demise I promise that, by the grace of Yahshua I feel forever blessed and grateful to be alive each day in order to enjoy the creations of perfections in nature and all of the positives in this world.
I would hope I have become an positive inspiration to each one of you. Every one of you have a friend in me until my last breath that I promise. With my hand we will overcome our darkness together and rise up against it. Everyday of our lives we should feel grateful to be alive..each of you make me feel alive.
Ever since the month of February of this year everything's become a constant obstacle for me and it's been colliding against me, everything was becoming a darker state of collision and it was becoming suffocating. At least the light is so much stronger now in my life, thank you everyone for you're friendships, love and support. Thank you again! Hope everyone is managing well and doing great!
Living by faith for this reason we never become discouraged, even though our physical body is gradually decaying. Yet our being is renewed day after day. And this small and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble. For we fix our attention not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever. For we know that when this tent we live in-our body here on Earth-is torn down, our divine creator will have a house in the light for us to live in, a home he himself has made which will last forever.
And now we sigh, so great is our desire that our home which comes from Heaven should be put on over us by being clothed with it we shall not be without a body. While we live in this Earthly tent we groan with a feeling of oppression: It is not that we want to get rid of our Earthly body, but that we want to have the heavenly one put on over us, so that what is mortal will be transformed by life.
So we are always full of courage. For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight. We are full of courage and would much prefer to leave our home in the body and be at home more than anything else.
The Providence Edge of the Light, The Blessing of Each Day
July 17, 2014, 02:49:pm
By the grace of YAHSHUA everyday is truly a miracle of just breathing the perfect creations that surrounds us, it is a blessing in itself of being alive each day. I have survived death and through the oceans in darkness the pulse of my heart still continues to breathe, through the darkest obstacles am I still standing strong and the still undefeated against it's tidal waves. As the light courses through my veins and through out the cosmos of my body. There exists an inertia of the light that remains motionless which I never would tear away or pull apart for anything in this world. As it remains only intact as a deeper part of me. If I could thank God that I'm here and I'm alive I do everyday of my life.
As the airwaves of the light travels through out the cosmos of my consciousness and spirit, embracing every aspect of me as it resuscitates the air I breathe to inhale and exhale, consuming inside this perfection that is blissful, a sense of love in the light. Much like the feeling of rain that surrounds you as the sunlight pierces through the black skies to feel it's warmth on you're face. Just to wake up every morning to witness nature and his creations around us is truly something magnificent and perfect in itself.
Over a period of time I become something so much greater than myself, a part of the providence of Light while constantly reversing the oceans of Darkness that was my consumed being.
Constantly I find myself becoming ever so closer and surrounded by the Butterfly Effect and it's Light of positivity. The future ahead of me is one of meaning of just living and breathe the air as I inhale into my body the blissful tranquility.
This is the beginning of a new course in life with me rising up in opposition against the shadows that continues to make an attempt to consume my mind. I have suffocated those demons out from the inside completely.
Through out a period of time and it has taken me the longest time to reach this point in life, I am becoming ever so closer to reaching out to my aspirations and goals. Not to mention what I hope to accomplish for myself from here on out, as I become more aggressive and determined to begin this new Journey in life within another chapter in the book. I've discovered my place in this humanity. I'm truly grateful to my circle of friends for all that they have done for me, I am their eternal servants and lifelong companions.
I have so much to be thankful for because of them I found my purpose in life.
Fixed a couple small bugs regarding the recent privacy updates:
Age-restricted blocks bug fixed where certain people were wrongfully blocked.
Fixed bug where new privacy functions were only available to premium members. Sorry this was not meant to be a premium feature! As usual, only premium members can see who viewed them and who rated them, as well as no ads, broadcasts, and other goodies.
Also made it so that if you have recently received a message (inbox, comment, pic comment, status comment) from a user, the age-limit and friend-limit blocks will be lifted for that user.
Thanks for the feedback, if you guys have any additional suggestions on how to improve VF, let us know!
New Privacy Options available on the 'edit settings' page:
You can now choose who is able to contact you!
You can set age minimums or age maximums, and you can also set it so that only friends can contact you on VF.
This feature will block users from sending you inbox messages, comments, journal comments or status comments.
I do recommend not restricting your contacts to 'friends only' in particular, because people won't be able to message you if they're not your friend. However I know some people do want extra privacy.
The new privacy features are still in beta testing and I'm adding some more features / options to it, so feel free to give us your feedback!
phoenix I wasn't referring to people that have the issue of setting their age as something stupid like 100 then saying they are 18 in their about me. Now where did I specifically say obvious fake ages like 69 or 100? I believe I was referring in general terms. If you have to say in your About Me that you're a different age than what's listed, then I'll assume you're a liar. Period. Say that a guy says he's 21, or, 22, or fucking 30, and his About Me says he's 15. My first assumption would be that they're a sexual predator, or something. If a female says she is 19 and it says in her About Me that she's actually 15, you might as well admit to being a predator.
My original comment had nothing to do with people that lie about their ages. I was discussing the technical aspects of the privacy setting itself, and how it relates to the fact that some people start on this social network as a minor but are now adults. someone who starts a profile today as a 17 year old could want different privacy setting right now then they will 2 years from now when they are 19, but if those settings are locked from them they would have to make a new profile to change that. That is the point I was trying to make. AT no point did I bring up people that lie about their age, or people that have differing ages set in their profile. you completely missed the point. I'm done with this thread.
"AT no point did I bring up people that lie about their age, or people that have differing ages set in their profile. you completely missed the point. I'm done with this thread.""people that have the issue of setting their age as something stupid like 100 then saying they are 18 in their about me."
