Living With Lions released a statement regarding the recent controversy over the artwork to their new album, Holy Shit. Check out the statement below and all controversy aside… be sure to check out the bands new album which is rather good.
The content of our artwork for our new recording was created out of our passion for satire and absurdist humor. The lyrical and musical content of this record does not contain any commentary on religion, nor does it use a pejorative or malicious voice against any particular group of people (excluding possibly some of our ex-girlfriends).
When the idea came up to simply alter the artwork for HOLY SHIT without having to expedite the repayment to FACTOR (The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings), we chose to entirely return the money so that HOLY SHIT can forever remain true to the original format.
The debate about government funding contributing to potentially controversial art is neither new nor truly resolved; but when the offended public complains, the politicians habitually remind groups like FACTOR, the NEA and the Arts Council that they can pull the plug rather than encourage discourse or scholarly debate.
We would like to thank our fans, friends and family for their continued support. We’d especially like to thank some of our newer fans in the media whose stance(s) on free speech has been really influential:
“Only a fool would think that censoring and gagging someone is equivalent of changing their mind.” – Ezra Levant
“I’m a mad believer in free speech and standing up to those who want to stifle free speech and impose standards of expectations.” – James Moore

All Time Low’s new video for “I Feel Like Dancin’” can be seen below. Filmed in Los Angeles, All Time Low re-teamed with director Matt Stawski (Cee Lo Green, Paramore, Kanye West and ATL’s very own “Weightless”) for the video.
“Matt did it again– He understands this band and always gets the message that we want to convey in our videos. I think we all went above and beyond with this one. It’s a hilarious, but also– sadly– true statement about the way the industry works right now. That, and we look effin’ brilliant in latex” proclaims All Time Low singer-guitarist Alex Gaskarth.
The Summer Set have set July 19th as the release date for their new album, Everything’s Fine. The frist single “Someone Like You” is available on iTunes and you can pick-up one of the special pre-orders here. The 11 track album was recorded in Los Angeles with super-producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Jonas Brothers, Switchfoot, Andrew W.K.).
The title is a bit sarcastic,” admits guitarist John Gomez. “Our first record was just one emotion. Everything’s Fine is yin and yang. We’ve had some ups and downs recently, some breakups, some general trials and tribulations. This is a record that says we’re young, but growing up and experiencing new things. So in a way, it’s optimistic, too.”
