MxPx_Vegas_Yuri's Farewell_Photo By Jered Scott

On Sunday, July 18, 2010, MxPx played a retirement concert for drummer Yuri Ruley in Las Vegas at Wasted Space. After 18 years and nearly 2.5 million records, having helped pave the way for pop-punk music, Ruley will be departing the band in order to focus more on his family life. The night was a celebration of the band at its height, with the original line-up and playing crowd favorites. In an unprecedented performance, the band played the entirety of their breakthrough album Life In General, which included tracks “Chick Magnet” and “Move To Bremerton”.

The sold-out show was met with a mix of joy, passion and energy as the group’s most faithful fans joined to see the band in their element, many having flown or driven from other states to be part of MxPx history. While this may have been a farewell to Ruley, this was a celebration of epic proportions.  Check out a live video of “Chick Magnet” here.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
