[NEWS] I Killed The Prom Queen Detained in Malaysia, But Went Home Safely

剛在香港舉行演唱會的 I Killed The Prom Queen 在馬來西亞完成演出後立即被入境處人員帶走。據結他手 Jona Weinhofen 在 Twitter 所述,是次主辦並沒有替他們取得相關的簽證,但諷刺的是,有入境處人員要求索取樂團的簽名!雖然樂團有機會被扣留4至14天,幸好最終兩天後被釋放,並安全抵達澳洲。你可在此查看 IKTPQ 在香港演出的照片。

I Killed The Prom Queen, who had just performed in Hong Kong last week, we detained by the Immigrant Department after their performance in Malaysia because promoters for the Kuala Lumpur show had failed to get them visas. Guitarist Jona Weinhofen tweeted they were being looked after and in “good health”, and were approached for autographs by immigration staff. Luckily the band twitted they are released 2 days later and arrive home safely. You can check out their Hong Kong concert gallery here.

[NEWS] Bring Me The Horizon – True Friends

如果你錯過了,Bring Me the Horizon 首播由主將 Oli Sykes 親自執導的 True Friends 視頻,片段不乏鮮血、暴力、謀殺,甚至動物屍體!與大部份 BMTH 的音樂視頻不同,這次主軸為敘述一名被舊時所作而纏繞的警探的故事。你可在樂團上月出版的最新專輯 That’s the Spirit 找到此曲。

ICYMI, Bring Me the Horizon had released “True Friends” music video full of blood, violent and mystery, directed by frontman Oli Sykes. Unlike their old music videos, it tells a story of a detective who is being haunted by his own past. The song is featured on BMTH’s album “That’s the Spirit” released last month.

[FLASHBACK] Underoath – Reinventing Your Exit

Reinventing Your Exit 收錄於 Underoath 2004年發布的第四張專輯 They’re Only Chasing Safety。有人說歌詞是有關投入上帝懷抱,有些人相信它只是講述生活的疑慮。主唱 Spencer Chamberlain 曾在訪問表示 “……不是每首 Underoath 的歌曲靈感是出自聖經,很多時只是描寫生活中的爭扎而已。”

“Reinventing Your Exit” is the single cut from Underoath’s forth album “They’re Only Chasing Safety” released in 2004. Some say the lyric is about finding God while some believe it’s based on doubts in life. As vocalist Spencer Chamberlain address in an interview “It’s not like every song is a lesson from the Bible or something. It’s just normal life struggles.”

[MUSIC QUOTE] Music VS. Prison

「如果我們所有人都因非法下載音樂而被捕,我希望法庭會有慈悲心把囚犯以音樂類型來分配監獄。」小編不想被困 Autotune 監獄喔⋯⋯

“If someday we all go to prison for downloading music, I hope they have the mercy to split us by genre.” Kill us if we had to be locked in the autotune prison…
