Just wanted to say thank you to Paint it Black for being the best band in hardcore right now. Thank you for everything you do and stand for (and big thanks to the macho dick who still thinks punching people at shows is cool, my swollen face is very thankful for your fist).

And Dan, if you happen to see this, I hope your daughter likes my tattoo.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you. And yes, she does.

  2. Just saying

    Pain, neglect and loss turn so many into bitter, hateful, people with tiny, hardened hearts. Other’s find a way to make their hearts bigger & make beautiful art. Obviously not a simple dichotomy, but a rather complex bit of alchemy. Thoughts whilst listening to aggressive & energetic music this A.M.

  5. Check Yr Math: UF250

    "In 2006, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) was involved in a half-million encoun- ters with pedestrians who were stopped because of suspected criminal involvement. Raw sta- tistics for these encounters suggest large racial disparities—89 percent of the stops involved nonwhites. Fifty-three percent of the stops involved black suspects, 29 percent Hispanic, 11 percent white, and 3 percent Asian, and race was unknown for the remaining 4 percent of the stops. Forty-five percent of black and Hispanic suspects were frisked, compared with 29 percent of white suspects; yet, when frisked, white suspects were 70 percent likelier than black suspects to have had a weapon on them."

  7. This photo, by Alyssa Tanchjja, is maybe the best Paint It Black live shot ever, as our disgusting faces are mercifully omitted. It and many others from the Philadelphia DIY punk scene are currently on display at PhilaMOCA as part of a cool photo show called “Crowd Control”, also featuring the work of Stephen Dyer, Sharp Hall, James Borders and Yoni Kroll. Worth a visit if you can spare a few minutes. https://www.facebook.com/events/279947498828040/

  9. Despite @NoiseyMusic’s talk of “headwalking,” at this Saturdays show in NYC, we’re generally unamused by macho ritual. Real punks can differentiate between energy and violence.
