Weatherbox @ Saint Vitus in July (more by Amanda Hatfield)
weatherbox-14

Weatherbox have announced that they'll be pulling out of their tour with Finch and Maps & Atlases due to main man Brian Warren's mental health issues. Their schedule included a show at the Bottom Lounge on October 14. Like the rest of the tour, that show will still go still on without them (Maps aren't on the Chicago show). Here's what the band wrote on Facebook:

Friends,

It's with a heavy heart that we must announce that we're pulling off the Finch/Maps & Atlases tour. For us it's a double-edged sword because the only way we could have possibly been kept from this tour is health and unfortunately that's still the issue we face. Brian has been in and out of facilities since we returned in early August and unfortunately the symptoms he encountered back on tour continue to plague him.

We'd like to extend a huge apology to Finch, Maps & Atlases, all the fans and promoters, and anyone else affected by our cancellation. We believe more that anyone that the show must go on, but we simply cannot tour until Brian can be stabilized.

We'd like to thank Triple Crown Records for their continued support and we're vowing now that the 'Box will be back in action in 2015!

Get well soon, Brian!

Scott w/ Frightened Rabbit @ Osheaga 2013 (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
3-frightened-rabbit-1

Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison recently welcomed a solo album under the name Owl John. It doesn't stray from his main project's core sound, but that's not a bad thing in the slightest. LP cuts like "Songs About Roses," "Los Angeles Be Kind," and "Red Hand" are especially reminiscent of the material on Frabbit's The Midnight Organ Fight. You'll find a complete stream of the Owl John LP at the bottom of this post.

Owl John will be embarking on a three-date US tour next month. That jaunt includes a show at the Bottom Lounge on October 15, and advance tickets are on sale now.

All Owl John dates and a stream of the LP lie after the jump...
