System of a Breakdown
Blabbermouth reports: Launch Radio Networks reports: Despite repeated assurances that their forthcoming "hiatus" is not a break-up, SYSTEM OF A DOWN reportedly acted like a band on the brink at the opening day of this summer's Ozzfest last Thursday (June 29) in Auburn, Washington, about 30 miles from Seattle. According to MTV.com, the members of SYSTEM arrived at the venue in separate tour buses. Guitarist Daron Malakian "seemed to be struggling to keep up with the rest of the band" and improvised lyrics during the first few songs of their performance. During the song "Lonely Day", while looking at vocalist Serj Tankian, Malakian crooned, "Such a lonely day, hanging out with the band/ This motherf***er, I can't stand."

A source at SYSTEM's record label told Launch not to read all that much into last Thursday's events, adding that the members have traveled on separate buses for a while now.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

From First to Last DeWarped
punkbands reports: From First to Last made an announcement on their site saying they had to drop off Warped Tour due to Sonny's vocals issues. A Warped Tour official announced that From First To Last didnt drop off, but they were kicked off; due to the bands lack of respect and "rockstar, primadona attitudes". 

Apparently, they were complaining about not playing mainstage and on several dates announced how poorly run Warped Tour is. This didnt make the people who ran Warped Tour happy, so From First To Last was warned that if they kept it up they would be asked to leave the tour. The next day the band said some stuff on stage taking s*** on the bands that are playing main stage and saying they should be on there. Soon after the production team from Warped Tour then asked from first to last to leave the tour (Absolutepunk). - Click Here for the Full Story
