At the top of the 2017 roster are The 1975 and Bleachers, followed by Highly Suspect and Sum 41. Seriously, all are POD favorites, and somehow they’re all performing at the same show (!!!).

Not only does the lineup also feature Joywave, K. Flay, and Warpaint, but there is still one more further up the ranks that is yet to be announced; stay tuned for that.

Flaming Lips on the Riot Stage

Starting in 2005 as a multi-venue Chicago based festival, Riot Fest has since grown to a multi city festival showcasing current and past Punk, Rock and Hip Hop Acts.

It has long been a POD favorite thanks to the outstanding lineups, and the excellent crowd atmosphere that can sometimes be missing from larger festivals like Lollapalooza. This years’ lineup boasted the likes of Rob Zombie, Nas, Morissey, The Flaming Lips, and the first reunion of The original Lineup of The Misfits in nearly 20 years.

Friday was the perfect kick off to the festival, with an excellent mix of punk/hardcore standouts as well as indie favorites, it had something for everyone. Continue Reading

Fuck yes, it’s Riot Fest announcement day! The first wave of the 2016 lineup announcement delivered big news today, revealing the acts heading to Denver and Chicago this coming September 2-4 and 16-18, respectively. Joining the reunited Misfits are Morrissey, Jane’s Addiction (Denver only; performing Ritual de lo Habitual), Death Cab For Cutie, Sleater-Kinney (Denver only), Rob Zombie, Nas, Deftones, and Tyler the Creator.

Some of the other dope acts playing fest are Ween, Death Grips, Vince Staples, Jimmy Eat World, Jake Bugg, The Hives, Chevy Metal, Method Man & Redman, Joey Bada$$, Gwar (of course),  and Highly Suspect.

We must note that, though it has just about all of the lineup already, this is just the first wave. Both the Chicago and Denver stops of the fest are yet to reveal a headliner, so that’s something to keep an eye out for. Fingers crossed on Rage Against The Machine…

Eagles Of Death Metal Share “I Love You All The Time” Covers by Florence + The Machine, Kings Of Leon and more

Eagles Of Death Metal I Love You All The Time

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on Paris on November 13, 2015 in which many innocent lives were taken at that evening’s Eagles Of Death Metal show at Le Bataclan, the band has released the a collection of covers of their song “I Love You All The Time” from their Play It Forward campaign to raise funds for the families of those most affected by these attacks.

The initial idea for the campaign came when none other than Duran Duran who reached out with an immediate and sincere act of musical solidarity: In response to a fan-led campaign to push Eagles Of Death Metal’s cover of Duran Duran’s classic “Save A Prayer” to #1 in the UK, Simon LeBon tweeted that the new romantic icons would donate their share of royalties from the track to charity.

In the weeks that followed, Eagles Of Death Metal asked its musical family to extend the victims of the Paris attacks the same kindness and compassion that everyone from the members of U2 to the French authorities had shown the band—to join the Play It Forward EODM Campaign. EODM asked artists the world over to cover “I Love You All The Time” from its current album Zipper Down. For every cover sold, the band pledged to donate 100% of its publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation, the non-profit organization founded in 2013 by EODM co-founder Joshua Homme to provide assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, as well as musical education and gear for the next generation. Participating artists were also asked to donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity.
