Steven has left his band, Lydia effective immediately. He will not be on the band’s farewell tour. In an official letter he wrote:
It is from a place of deep regret and rue I write these words, awash in
disbelief and distant reflection, but friends, I must announce my
immediate departure from Lydia. Do not fret! Lydia is still coming to a
town near you, and I am knee deep in completing my new band’s debut LP.
Irreconcilable differences between myself and remaining original members
have resulted in thick tension at rehearsals. It was finally too small
for the both of us, and someone had to go. I will miss performing these
songs one more time in every city but ultimately my departure from the
tour is the best for all involved, including you fans. There is not a
show nor record nor demo nor chat with a fan I do not look back upon
with only the fondest of memories, our fans truly are unique and I will
continue to deliver the ear candy, always, forever and most importantly,
VERY SOON. Until then, take care, go see Lydia, and keep your ears to
the stars for signs of where I’ll be next.
“On the Eighth Ring of Saturn the Evil in your Hands will be Weighed
against the Intentions of your Heart. You should only be so lucky to
leave The Codone Universe, lest you be Doomed to Float all Time.”

Sum 41 is having some serious bus issues on there run of the Warped Tour. On the way to Ventura after the San Francisco show, the bus driver took to the wheel while being drunk, causing his lack of full consciousness to have the bus drive off the road and come close to tipping over, killing everyone on board. In a series of early morning Twitter updates the band posted the following conversation:
6:32: “So our bus driver was drunk. We are at the side of the road. This tweet is not a joke. Trying to get to Ventura for warped tour”
6:50: “Recap. Our bus driver ran off the road. He was drunk. Deryck tried to fight him”
6:55: “New bus driver came and met us at the side of the road…. He seems more sober.”
6:58: “No doubt we like to drink. Its well documented. But this idiot did it while driving!”
7:00: “What an idiot! We could have been killed! F-k this guy. Never working for us again!”
12:18: “We are alive. In Ventura. Ready to rock out.”
And if you think it ends there you are wrong. On the way to the scorching hot desert of Arizona the guys bus decides to stop working:
“So our bus broke down on the way to Arizona. Wow.”
“We have the worst luck in rock.”
*Remember never drive or allow someone to drive drunk. If you need a free ride, many are available by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP. Don’t put yourself and others in danger, it’s never worth it.

In a recent interview with the Australian Associated Press, The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning saidthat the Vegas glam-rockers’ Feb. 21 show in Melbourne will be their last—for a while, at least.
The news doesn’t come as such a surprise, as the Killers have been touring and recording virtually non-stop since they first started catching ears with “Somebody Told Me” in 2004. But, in the context of rumors that singer Brandon Flowers wants to go solo, it looks increasingly likely that “break” in this case might actually be short for “break-up.”
When asked whether the hiatus would be permanent, Keuning didn’t deliver the most convincing response: “Not as far as I know” he said.
