#metoo: Allegations Surface Against PTV & WCAR

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations and the #metoo movement, more and more victims of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct step forward. As such, also some allegations have now surfaced against members of the bands Pierce The Veil, Slaves (US) and We Came As Romans.

Pierce The Veil drummer Mike Fuentes has been accused of conducting a sexual relationship with a female who was 16, he is said to have been 24 at the time of the relationship. According to the woman, the incidents happened roughly ten years ago. The woman in question claims to be from the state of California and thus would have been under the legal age of consent. Her accusation can be found here, shared by a friend, along with some blurred out naked photographs of what appears to be Fuentes pleasuring himself via a video chat.

Slaves vocalist Jonny Craig has been accused of sexual misconduct with a minor as well as sexual assault and domestic abuse.

We Came As Romans vocalist Kyle Pavone has been accused of physically assaulting a woman after a consensual sexual encounter did not go as planned.

As of yet, none of the accused musicians have addressed the allegations publicly.

Chicago Open Air Day Three

Day 3: Sunday 7/17/2016

The best part of being Cuban/Irish is that I'm tan year round but still shrivel up like bacon when exposed to too much sunlight. I had the nastiest sunburn ever which even days later had my forehead covered in acne and the skin on my nose flaking off. And after looking at myself in the mirror, the first two words that came to mind were, “worth it.” As somebody too perpetually broke to wear sunscreen and already shelling out ungodly amounts of money just to stay fed and hydrated, a sunburn was a rather small price to pay to continue to have a really great time.

Since my arctic camo shorts were completely drenched in beer, I decided that now was the time to break out an even more egregious pair of camo shorts. Neon green and black are a pattern that can't blend into any environment which is why I bought them in the first place. Just the most outrageous thing I could possibly own... and now I had an excuse!

I missed the first three acts since I got there late. I kept waking up later each morning due to the sheer quantity of alcohol I was drinking as my car needed engine repairs and that meant that I wasn't driving. That fact that the gates opened earlier with each passing day didn't help either since Gemini Syndrome started playing a full half hour earlier than Through Fire did on Friday. So I ultimately have no opinions on Gemini Syndrome, Upon a Burning Body or We Came As Romans and I'm not going to fabricate a story just for the sake of comprehensiveness. There are some videos on Youtube and I watched them but I still lack anything resembling an opinion since bootlegs can never compare to the real thing. More...

Commented Sturgis: "I've needed a tool like Finality, that's why I designed it. As I tested it more and more, I realized other people would need this too.

I'm very excited to share this limiter with the audio community because it was a blast to create and sounds great!"
