Cops Beat Metalhead
Metal Underground reports: Brock Parker of Alabama's WTVM News Leader 9 is reporting that a teenager at a Christian heavy metal concert was brutalized by police this past Saturday night (Sept. 3).

Witnesses at The Breaker Box club in Lanett, Alabama say the teenager was calling home to get a ride when police threw him into a light pole and then onto the ground.

"I saw two Lanett police officers. One of them grabbed a young black male, head-locked him, ran him into this pole, slammed him to the ground, put their knee in his back and cuffed him," John Keith told WTVM News Leader 9. That's when the lead singer of ONLY AFTER FAITH grabbed his video camera[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Creed Sued By Label
MTV reports: You might think Wind-Up Records isn't too happy about its business arrangement with Creed, since the label filed a lawsuit against former Creed members Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Scott Stapp seeking "discharge of any liability to pay them royalties." But Wind-Up says the suit isn't representative of any animosity, but rather seeks clarification for just how and to whom those royalties should be paid.

3 Doors Downed by Katrina
MTV reports: In Biloxi, Mississippi, where 3 Doors Down got their start, Katrina did severe damage to several of the bandmembers' homes. 

"Chris [Henderson], our guitar player, has eight feet of water in his house," singer Brad Arnold said. "He built a studio for us to write in and it's not thoroughly destroyed, but just because it's not leveled, doesn't mean it's fixable. There's also a few people in Chris' family that they don't know about. And Todd [Harrell, bassist] just bought a plantation house in the country and the roof got ripped off of it."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

CBGB Eviction
Punkbands reports: If it wasn't obvious to Hilly Kristal last week that his landlord was serious about wanting to cut its ties with CBGB, it is now. Wednesday afternoon — one week after his lease with the nonprofit homeless services organization the Bowery Residents' Committee expired — Kristal was served with an eviction notice to vacate the building where he established the club more than three decades ago. Muzzy Rosenblatt, the BRC's executive director, revealed last week that his organization intends to find a new tenant for the space which has always housed CBGB, considered the birthplace of the American punk movement.

Kristal and the Save CBGB Coalition responded to the eviction notice in a statement issued late last night: "There is no valid reason why CBGB should leave our present historic location. All we want is the same thing [New York Governor George Pataki, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg] and 43 City Council members want — that is to sit down with the BRC and negotiate in good faith a new lease that is fair to all parties."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Purevolume Rigged? 
Day in Rock reports: A publicist for Drive-Thru Records sent out an interesting email this week. Since the heading was "News To Post" we figured he wanted it posted, so here it is : Just an observation. But are labels paying to be listed in the top ten chart on purevolume.com. If you check right now the top ten signed artist chart you will notice underoath is listed as number 10. With around 5000 plays. But if you check www.purevolume.com/allister you will notice they have over 8000 plays. This is just something I noticed. Something to keep in mind when you check out the top ten on purevolume.com (of course we have done absolutely no research on this, except to look at the Top 10 and compare the plays against the one mentioned in the email and he was right)- Click Here for the Full Story
