Also this week:

Fletcher Dragge of print stars Pennywise told us of their forthcoming shows at the Garden Amp, “We were talking about doing it at bigger venues, and we have a bunch of friends that are running the Garden Amp.  A lot of people don’t know about it, but it’s an awesome venue. It’s a miniature version of Irvine Meadows. When people get in there, they’re like ‘Oh shit, this is awesome. They want to put it on the radar a little bit, so doing something like a big splash with five Pennywise shows seemed like a good idea. They’re super cool dudes, all punk rockers. It’s got an old school punk club feel. It’s like playing Irvine Meadows to 800 people instead of 18,000. It’s outdoors, and run by good people with the right intentions. We would love to help them put their name on the map, and at the same time it’s gonna be a great show for us.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Ace Aura said that, ‘UMBRA’ started out as a remix of a track called ‘Blue Shadows’,” he says. “Once we found out that we weren’t able to release the remix, I turned it into an original for release on Monstercat. My manager, Landon, and I reached out to Voicians for vocals and he killed it!”

Adding, “I’ve got a few big remixes and collabs in the works, as well as a couple of EPs of my own. A tour might be in the cards for later this year, but we’ll have to wait and see!”
