Suicidal Cold
Audio Aggression reports: Cold frontman Scooter Ward recently interviewed with the Digital Noise Network. In the interview, Ward talks about the new album, touring, and switching labels. Perhaps the most troubling part though, is where he admits the problems he had been struggling with over recent times.

In another part of the interview, Ward explained that he was so stressed out that he seriously contemplated suicide: 
"At the end of the tour with Evanescence, I was either ‘am I gonna die or am I gonna live?' Do I wanna die? Yes. Do I wanna live? I don't know. I went to the beach and contemplated suicide. I had a gun in my hand and f**kin' sat there and asked God, if there was one, to show me what the hell … give me a sign."

Post Blink
punkbands reports: There's some good news and some bad news about Plus-44, the electronic-tinged side project of former Blink-182 compadres Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. First, the bad news: Despite Internet rumors, Plus-44's debut album won't be hitting stores in January, according to the band's management. 

The good news? Well, just like Barker told MTV News back in May, the Plus album will see the light of day next summer (see "Travis Barker Calls His Plus-44 Side Project 'Way Out There' ") ... which to rabid Blink fans isn't really good news at all.
