With just 300 tickets remaining to the 2012 edition of the annual, multi-day Atlanta, GA hosted festival, organizer Glenn Harveston has issued his State Of The Union Address, regarding the show. Always the straight-shooter, he addresses some rumors, including the future of ProgPower USA. In short, if the show fails to sell out, or come damn near (in advance), then he's packing it in (ie: the end of the fest). There are currently no plans, nor negotiations underway and has rebuffed the money sponsors pledge for supporting particular bands attending the following year.
Hollywood, California - Standby Records is pleased to announce the much anticipated release of Davey Suicide's track and video for 'Generation Fuck Star' on iTunes and BlankTV Tuesday, May 1, 2012. The track, a symphony of post industrial metal rebellion, is energetic and explosive.
The video was directed by renowned photographer and filmmaker Chad Michael Ward, who's prior work has included Marilyn Manson, Fear Factory, and Combichrist. Frontman and the namesake for Davey Suicide, states "I feel like visually, this video is what the soundtrack of this generation should feel like." The video for 'Generation Fuck Star' combines alternative individuality and how we all must band together as one, no matter if you are drug addicts, street punks, or getting f*ed with—the video presents the sense of social isolation felt by many teens; rather than wallowing in self-pity, it empowers people. "I'm breaking free from all of the baggage that has plagued me for years and have become comfortable in my own skin."
