Hardcore band Bloodlined Calligraphy was supposed to play in Baltimore this past Sunday, but the day before the tour started, Ally French (the singer) sent her bandmate a text message saying she was leaving the band. A text message. BC's new album, Ypsilanti, primed to be their breakthrough album, just dropped September 19, was featured at both Hot Topic and Best Buy, and now the band is without a singer. A text message! Oh yeah, and the drummer quit, but he was kind enough to finish out the first leg of the tour. Source: HXC
Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw (or maybe you know him from Head Automatica) and Sean Martin of Hatebreed have a side project called House of Blow.
