Just read this on Indie Star (which is a awesome blog, http://www.indiestar.tv/) that the new Of Mice & Men album The Flood is the FASTEST selling album in Rise Records history! So stoked on that, these boys deserve it fully. Been a fan since their first release but kinda let it slide but had a good listen to The Flood and I fucking LOVE IT! Such a good album and so far is my album of the year, so anyone into this type of music should check it out and pick up a copy because its well worth the purchase.

I only read about the macbook scam that Jonny did, which is such a dickhead thing to do, lucky he has a good label and management firm that might be able to turn things around with his career and safe him a little bit.

“Craig Ericson of Rise and Eric Rushing of the Artery Foundation provided us with this joint statement:

“In regards to Jonny Craig; Jonny has checked himself into a professional detox treatment facility located in North Hollywood, CA. His addiction needed immediate attention and with the help from MusiCares, we were able to make it happen. Rise Records and Artery Management will reimburse all people who Jonny took advantage of financially. No one will be getting ripped off and we’d all like to issue a public apology to anyone who had been taken advantage of. Regarding live performances: the Emarosa/Chiodos tour will continue as planned with Tilian Pearson (former vocalist of Tides of Man) filling in for Jonny. All scheduled Dance Gavin Dance shows will happen as planned next month and beyond. Everyone from his team wishes Jonny the best in his recovery. We’re all looking forward to the new and improved Jonny.”
