… And we’re back! How have you been? Did you miss us? If the answer is no, that’s OK. So where did we leave off? Oh yeah, I was in Kentucky waiting for a ride. Well, a lot has happened between then and now. Future Villains played a bunch of shows in LA, maybe you read some reviews on this website. Also there was a quickie tour to Mexico that wasn’t too spectacular. And as you may recall, we tossed the rhythm guitarist off the last big tour we were on and he has been replaced with Ronnie Simmons.

By Andrew Bansal

As a regular concertgoer in the city of Los Angeles, there are several aspects of the hard rock/heavy metal scene I’ve absorbed and observed through the past few years. While I love being a member of this community and there is no place in the world I would rather be a resident of, I find certain characteristics of the scene increasingly disturbing, and wish for a change to occur.

These observations and rants apply to everyone in general and no one in particular. Without further ado … Continue reading
