In another new feud in the music world, Sumerian Records and ex-Sworn Enemy Guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci have posted a video clip online calling out Ronnie Radke of Falling in Reverse for recent behavior. The video apparently comes in response after I See Stars was kicked off a tour with Falling In Reverse. The video can be seen below. Sumerian Records also commented:

“There is nothing cool, rock & roll, punk rock, or admirable about treating your peers or fans like they are pieces of garbage. Ronnie Radke is not a good human being. It’s one thing to love someone’s music, but do not love someone as an individual for who they are not. We do not think it is a coincidence this is the same guy who was arrested for the horrible, violent things you can read about in the links below. He cares about no one but himself and he has reminded us all of this. His latest tweet ‘people at our shows come to see us everything else is irrelevant. Nuff said.’ is his way of telling all the other bands he tours with that they don’t matter. Why any artist would throw that type of negativity and disrespect out is something we will never understand. This scene is supposed to be about compassion and understanding. Ronnie is rotten.

“Out of respect for the industry professionals involved in this debacle, we will not be publicly disclosing any legal documents on the internet. We can confirm that Ronnie kicked the band off the tour but allowed them back on after they forfeited their pay. We can confirm that they were being forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding this in order to stay on the tour. We can confirm that I See Stars were not kicked off yesterday in Detroit because of anything to do with drugs. It was because a grown man was throwing a temper tantrum who claims to be ‘rock & roll’ but is actually worse than a neurotic pop-star diva with a God complex. Just because you no longer do drugs doesn’t mean you are no longer a horrible human being. Ronnie now abuses people instead of substances.”

Riverside, CA melodic hardcore band No Bragging Rights will shack up at One Light Media recording studios in Las Vegas, Nevada next month. The band will start tracking a brand new album with Kelly Cairns (As I Lay Dying, Austrian Death Machine, Molotov Solution, Chelsea Grin, War Of Ages, Impending Doom, Sworn Enemy) who worked on the band’s last album “Illuminator,” which was released January of last year.

No Bragging Rights completed many tours this past year with appearances at the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, The Jamboree, and many other notable festivals, and could not be more thrilled to take time off and start recording a new album.

Guitarist Daniel Garrow had the following to say, “We’re excited to work with Kelly again because we know this record is a priority and he’s sure to capture what we’re going for. My personal goals for these songs weren’t necessarily based on structure or ‘rules’ but what feels right; trying to stay within a melodic balance throughout the duration on the song. There’s something for everyone in there if you liked our last two full lengths! We’re very excited to release this material and tour heavily!”

A new label announcement is on the way, so stay tuned.
