Chris Black Departures The Dollyrots :(

Earlier today, The Dollyrots announced via Twitter that Chris Black (drummer) departures the band. The Dollyrots posted a blog on their website “Ends and Beginnings…”, as stated on their blog, “This is not a matter of “creative differences” or of how much we care for each other. We wish Chris the best as he moves onward to new endeavors!”

We hope and wish the best for Chris and The Dollyrots.

The Early November Reunite, Sign To Rise Records, With New Album Out Mid 2012

After nearly five years of hiatus, pop-punk rockers and Drive-Thru Records alumni The Early November announced via their facebook page and at one of their reunion shows at the Starland Ballroom on November 26th that they had decided to record another record. The next day it was announced that they had signed to Rise Records, and to expect the new album to be released in middle of next year.

Watch a the band’s video about the reunion, signing, and new record and more after the jump.

Not even a year after Ace Enders  announced that his I Can Make A Mess album, Gold Rush would likely be his last, shocking fans old and new, and sparking an outpouring of support, his outlook seems to have turned around. Realizing how important his music still is to so many people, he has plans to not only continue music, but thanks to the proceeds of the Gold Rush kickstarter, is making a new business model that would help indie artists survive in the weird place the music business is in at the moment. 

A handful of East Coast holiday shows are planned for late December. Dates are posted on the band’s official website. While it has yet to be seen if this reunion is a permanent one, this new record will be a (nostalgic) treat for their fans, and will hopefully expose a new ‘generation’ of indie rock lovers to the music of The Early November.
