Carrollton, KY metalcore A Feast for Kings lost their lead singer, Eric Gentry, in May. The band has set up an IndieGoGo fund to help with all costs, calling it a Memorial T-Shirt Fund. As of right now, they’re almost to their goal of $800, but anything beyond will still help the family. From the release:

We are A Feast for Kings, a metal band from the Kentucky area. For those of you who aren’t familiar with us, we recently lost our brother and frontman Eric Gentry. He went to be with the Lord on May 17, 2014. We are currently in the process of raising money for the family. This campaign’s purpose is to create memorial shirts to remember Eric. All proceeds will go to the Gentry family. Your donations will help keep Eric’s memory alive and will help the Gentry family immensely.

It costs $15 to donate, and you receive a shirt in the size you requested.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
