Bursting Veins has issued the following announcement about filling in for Miss May I on an upcoming Stockholm show with This Or The Apocalypse:
"Hey guys! As you might know We Came As Romans, This Or The Apocalypse & The Word Alive are on the Scream It Like You Mean It tour.
"What you might do not know is that Miss May I unfortunately had to cancel there shows on this tour.. BUT, on Tuesday the tour comes to Stockholm and we have the honor to play instead of them!
"So if your in Stockholm on Tuesday, please come to Debaser Slussen to check out the event of the year!"
After my struggles to stay awake the previous night, I slept in late so I wouldn’t be exhausted for the rest of SXSW.
I made it out to an afternoon session “Website? Get Real. You Need A Web Empire.” It was a decent talk about not only the band’s website as a central hub, but all of the social media and mobile presence that bands should work on to build their audience. There were some tips given on marketing and SEO and various related topics as well, but overall, I felt the title was a little misleading. They discussed some services such as cashmusic, bandcamp, and Topspin as well. It was an ok discussion overall, but I only learned a few tidbits here and there that I didn’t know already.
From there, I was headed over to Emo’s once again. On the way, I ran into San Francisco violin, cello and drums trio Judgement Day playing acoustically at a street corner. I stopped to shoot a few photos and hear a song, bought a CD and then was on my way. I hoped to catch them amped the following night at a proper show. More...

Former bassist Nick Urlacher of metalcore act The Word Alive has posted the following statement online in regards to his decision to leave the band:
"This is hard to start off. What are the right words to say goodbye to a family of friends, family and fans who have changed your life for the last 3 years of your life? A simple goodbye wouldn’t suffice. Yet a long drawn out one would be too much. I’ve decided to leave The Word Alive my friends. This decision doesn’t come easy, by any means of the word.
"The other 5 members have been my road family and home family for what feels like an eternity. We had the best of times and the worst of times, but we were together playing music and touring the country together. We’re friends who will always be there for one another no matter the price.
"This period of my life has changed me in ways that I would have never imagined! I found myself out on that lonely road with them. I will miss all of our friends, family and fans I’ve had the utmost pleasure and honor to meet along my travels with The Word Alive. My life journey hasn’t ended and neither will the band. This band will accomplish so much and Ill be proud of them for all the progress they are GOING to make.
Peace, Love, Farewell,
The Word Alive has posted the following update online, announcing the departure of bassist Nicholas Urlacher.
"So this is not easy to announce for any of us, having one of our best friends departing from our incredible journey is a sad thing. Especially Nick, who has always been one of the best dudes to all of us, as well as someone who could make anyone smile on a bad day and a founding member. But sometimes people have to choose the path that is right for them. We support Nick and love him like a brother and will always consider him apart of the TWA family. Hopefully you will too!
"That being said, we want you guys to know we will not be missing ANY shows. We have a friend from Phoenix filling in for our next tour, so everyone say hi to our friend Daniel from Sharks Never Sleep on tour and be nice! Or else ; )
"We’ll be doing a public search for what will be a permanent member. This isn’t something we will be rushing in the least bit, we want to find the perfect fit for our band and the future of TWA. Below are a list of requirements we’ll need you to submit to email@example.com SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!
"If you do not fulfill the requirements please do not send an email to the band or this email address.
"We hope that through this change we can only continue to progress and play shows for all of you guys, which is our dream and our focus. Thank you for your understanding and support through everything. We can’t wait to see you in 2011 and will not let this slow us down.
Dusty Zack Telle Tony & Justin"
