:News: XP8 To Play Their Final Show

XP8In 2001 the Future-Pop/Techno veterans XP8 began their foray into the music world. In that time they have released  over ten albums and EPs. The Italian duo, now based in England, have announced that their upcoming show at the UK’s Alt-Fest will be their final show. While they have not ceased operating, they will not be playing any shows for the foreseeable future. The band notes due to low show attendance, low performance fees and day job commitments as reasons why they are no longer playing live.

They promise to make their final show at Alt-Fest one to remember. Alt-Fest takes place August 15th-17th in Kettering, England and has such artists as Marylin Manson, The Cult, and Front 242 headlining. XP8 will be playing on August 16th at the Industrial/Electronica stage.

The Violent

:News: AFI and System Syn Band Members to Produce Movie “The Violent”

The ViolentSinger Davey Havok (AFI, Blaqk Audio, XTRMST) and Clint Carney (System Syn, God Module, Imperative Reaction) have announced they will be producing a new movie called The Violent. To help fund the production of the movie they have started a crowd sourcing campaign.

Set in the mid 90s amongst a tight-knit group of punks and skins, The Violent follows a teenager in his final year of high school as he is drawn down a path of crime, and must ultimately reconcile his own violent nature, or be consumed by it.

The Violent is an independent film, financed by private investors, and the awesome public at large who want to see this movie get made. That’s you!

This campaign’s initial goal of $20,000 allows them to begin certain highly important aspects of pre-production immediately. This covers a wide range of things from legal and business expenses, to the casting process, all the way up to beginning production on some of the crazy props and wardrobe that will be onscreen in the film.

Clint Carney has written the screenplay and is producing the movie with Davey Havok acting and co-producing. Directing will be Kelly Jones. He was a producer and cinematographer for the feature films “Hot Guys With Guns,” and “Mobbed Up.” He was also the director of photography for the recently released biopic documentary “Iceberg Slim; Portrait of A Pimp,” and co-director for the Foo Fighters music video “White Limo”.

The perks available for donating range from access to a special behind the scenes production blog to roles in the movie. The crowd sourcing campaign ends on August 15th. It can be found HERE.

Mr. Kitty – Life (NGP)Mr. Kitty (née Forrest Avery Carney), originally from Dallas, TX but currently based in Austin, comes back with full force on this re-release of  his third album in the “Dark Youth” series of four releases: Death, Eternity, Life, and Time.
