After nearly 17 years, Longineu Parsons has decided to part ways with Yellowcard. The band announced their drummer’s departure on Thursday, saying, “It has been announced that long-time drummer Longineu ‘LP’ Parsons III has left YELLOWCARD. Longineu has decided to pursue other musical interests. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.” A replacement has not been announced. Parsons’ exit leaves Sean Mackin as the sole original member. It is unclear what this means for the band’s upcoming tour dates, including their slot on this summer’s Warped Tour.

But this week, FuseTV‘s Warped Roadies has rattled off an incredible 12 new bands. So if your favorite band hadn’t already been announced, your odds of seeing them this summer just tripled.
The next 12 bands to play the tour are The Summer Set, Dangerkids, Dayshell, For All Those Sleeping, Get Scared, Pvris, Wax, Watsky, DJ Nicola Bear, One OK Rock, Pacific Dub, and OurStage artist Heart To Heart.

Today I Fight Dragons brought us the bittersweet news that longtime member, Bill Prokopow would be leaving the band indefinitely. Described as handling “Rock Band guitar, NES, SNES, NES advantage, NES zapper, keyboards, nintendo-control-center,” Prokopow will be leaving before IFD’s stint on this summer’s Warped Tour, to focus on his solo project, Will Post. Unfortunately this means that Prokopow will also be absent from the band’s forthcoming album, The Near Future. Check out a statement from Prokopow below, and in the meantime, enjoy this little number to remember him by. (more…)
If you ask us, Vanna is having a pretty great year. In addition to being added to the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, the Boston natives have just signed with Pure Noise Records, and will be releasing their label debut this June. Speaking about the signing, Vanna said, “The entire idea of making music is to be able to share your passion your frustrations your problems with as many people as possible, that’s always been our goal as a band. In saying that we always strive to work with people who feel the same way we do. Pure Noise Records is about that exactly. After co-releasing The Few and The Far Between on vinyl last year and seeing what the record label is all about, we as a band felt that Pure Noise would be a good home for our future and a step in the direction that we wanted to take. We are honored to join the Pure Noise Records roster, full of amazing bands that are just killing it. We look forward to the future, as our musical family grows larger. Thank you for listening. I believe in you if you believe in me.”

Last month Anberlin fans everywhere were hit with the bombshell news that following a final album and tour, the band would break up. Though the news came as a bit of a shock, the band has so far stayed true to their word, having just recently announced their last run of UK dates in Glasgow, Manchester, and London this August. U.S. fans can catch the band live on this year’s Vans Warped Tour.
Although album details are still preliminary, the band has announced a re-signing to former label, Tooth & Nail Records, and seem to already be working on the new album. Check out their final UK dates below. (more…)
