The Color Morale
have announced that they are going on hiatus. 

They are taking the time to "get back to being human" and have stated that "within the expanse of that idea, The Color Morale could never break up."

Check out the full statement from frontman Garret Rapp below:

“this is where the devil goes to take a shit.”

I’ll never forget the day that I got to quit my job to be in a full time touring rock band. I set sail to the open asphalt with my best friends southbound to Florida, only to be completely broken down and stranded in Gulfport Mississippi just days after leaving home for the first time. We met a local there that quoted the above to us as we were broken down and stranded at a local Gulfport gas station. Mississippi was hot that time of year, a perfect correlation between hell and the devil, and apparently the unforgiving world of touring in a rock band. Fast forward to nearly a decade later and here I am writing this eventuality.

The Color Morale was birthed as more than a band name, more than it’s members, and more than just the music. It was a mission statement and an idea of something greater. Even the name was a reflection of an alternative cognition, agreed upon by it’s creators. Whether that message was from a place of practiced spiritual refuge or some perplexed chaotic depressive sabotage, it was always brutally honest.

I can’t believe that nearly 10 years and 6 albums later, I still can’t go a single day without reading a message or comment about how that very same design affected and continues to affect you all in positive ways. That is the greatest privilege I have ever known in my life.

This is where you start to assume that this is The Color Morale announcing it’s break-up. When Steve and I started this band the goal was never to sell thousands of records, be on magazine covers, or even leave the midwest. The goal, along with the rest of my band mates was to have fun making art with my best friends. It always started there, in a garage across a field from a little restaurant in the middle of nowhere. In the middle of nowhere is exactly where you discover who and why you are.

Within the expanse of that idea, The Color Morale could never break up. If it broke, it was only because it wasn’t ours anymore. While we’ve been through many member changes over the years, the reason has been the same and for that same very reason this band will never expire. The truth is after over a decade, strife demands rest.

For the time being we’re going to get back to being human…enjoy some other outlets, challenges, and comforts. We’ll be prioritizing focuses we probably should have, and revisiting influences that drove us to create in the first place.

Call that a hiatus if you will, but this will never be over. I’m going to continue to post things on our social media, communicate as much as possible with you all, and get back to writing again eventually.

The illustration above consists of thousands of photos of your tattoos together as one, a beautiful symbol of the community we share. You are all loved and greatly appreciated…beyond social media and beyond prose.

-Garret Rapp

The band's last album 'Desolate Divine' was released in 2016 via Fearless Records.

WELL.

Blink-182's Travis Barker has revealed that he is making a documentary and it that will star Tom Delonge and Mark Hoppus. 

On the Kevin & Bean Show on KROQ Travis spoke about interviewing Tom after a post appeared on Instagram a few weeks ago. 

"He just did a very important interview for my doc which will be the counterpart to my book. So four people were interviewed to create this trailer. It was Mark Hoppus, my dad and Tom Delonge. 

I haven't really said anything. It's been in the works. It's the same people who did Steve Aoki's documentary. We started talking with them a while back about being inspired by the book but then digging deeper.

It's one thing to read in a book 'this and this happened to you' or to say 'oh, you were in a plane crash' but to actually see footage from it and news clippings and friends and family talking about it is just another level."


More details as we get them!

In the meantime here's some classic Blink:

Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz Did A Q&A In The Bath And We Are Here For It

#FallOutBath in full effect.

7 years ago Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz promised that if he reached 3 million followers on Twitter he would do a Q&A from his bath. 

Fast forward to 2018 and he has kept his promise. 

Alongside answering questions about his favourite horror movies, pizza toppings and how much longer he will let his hair grow, he also revealed where the idea for the llamas that feature heavily in the 'M A  N   I    A' era came from. 

"They were supposed to be monsters. We came up with them for this video that me and my buddy Brendon [were making] and then one of them ended up looking like a llama."

So now you know.

Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie May Start Releasing Unheard Songs At Random

"I want them to see the light of day and there's just so many."

Panic! At The Disco's
Brendon Urie has been talking about new music. 

On his latest Instagram Live he revealed that he may start dropping songs that don't appear on his albums at random.

"Drake's got a good plan and I think I want to start doing this. Yeah I have an album but I also have way more songs apart from the album.

He just put two songs out randomly. Fuck it, I want to do that. I want them to see the light of day and there's just so many.

I don't like doing albums that are more than 10/11 songs. It's not my vibe."


He also revealed he has been planning for a new tour.

"I wrote some stuff out for tour today. Wrote some plans. Made a couple of mood boards. Edited some video together to get a vibe for stuff. I've been working. 

Maybe that would be a cool idea. Each show we bring out one fan and they can walk backstage as I do the walkaround or whatever this new thing is going to be next tour. But whatever the new thing is you can walk and watch it from backstage and then watch when I come back and change clothes, we do some high fives then I jump back on and finish the set."

BIG.
