For all intents and purposes, here’s one that seems to have come from left field…Connecticut’s Hostage Calm are no more. Here’s the official statement from the band, which was issued via their Facebook page:
Hostage Calm has broken up. It’s too soon, it’s too young, and it hurts too much.
All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows.
I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than you’ll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kids’ foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives.
To all of you who’ve connected with us, who’ve grown with us, who’ve loved, changed, cried, lived with us – and to all of you who will yet – Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have done it alone. “I’ve been a hero, and I’ve been a fool. And all of it for you.”
The band had just released their latest album, “Die On Stage,” on September 16th via Run For Cover Records. They released a video for the song “A Thousand Miles Away From Here” the following day; if you’re not too heart-broken, you can still watch it here.
We’ll miss you, Hostage Calm.Add to My Radar

Indie singer-songwriter Koji has just posted his entire discography online in order to raise money for Ebola awareness. You can find all of his releases on his bandcamp, where the proceeds will go to the cause.
On his move to raise money for Ebola, Koji commented:
I’m giving away my entire discography and collecting donations via my bandcamp to raise funds to combat the Ebola outbreak in west Africa. Over 1,500 people have died in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Senegal, and the Democratic Republic of Congo because of Ebola and many more are infected. The lack of clean water and medical personnel/supplies are major factors standing in the way of containment of the deadly virus. I will be donating money from my bandcamp to Charity: Water and Doctors Without Borders.
When people come together, they can make a huge difference. There is an unprecedented public health crisis happening in west Africa and it deserves more attention. I’m grateful that I can use my music to get people engaged with this issue and the important work that organizations like Doctors Without Borders and Charity: Water do.Add to My Radar
