One of my oldest and best friends list his home last night. Him, his wife and their two small children lost everything, and it's gonna take some doing to get back on their feet. Many of you may know Nick as the frontman of Curse Of Sorrow, or have been to Conflict and gotten his art permanently inked on your body. If you can help, even just a little, please do. If you can't help, please share.

Although it was never released officially, before leaving Arizona, we played a killer show and recorded from the sound board for a live album. Im going to do some last EQ tweaking on it, and then do a limited FREE giveaway, of Full Story At Midnight: Live, Undead, And Underground. Stay tuned for details on how to score a free digital download on the album.

So everyone is aware, FSAM is being forced to take a slightly longer than anticipated hiatus. Last weekend, a house fire damaged our home, displacing Nate I.V. and myself. Our gear is fine, but we wont be practicing or trying to book shows until life has stabilized and weve recovered financially. Nate unfortunatly lost all of his clothes except one pair of incredibly resilient jeans, and without power, all of our food went bad, so well need to replace that, not to mention the expense of disposing of it and all the other trash and debris. We appreciate everyones continued support in what has been a very rough end to 2014. So long as you stick with us, we'll keep rolling with the punches.

From this point forward, Full Story At Midnight and its members will no longer be responding, publically or privately, to any harrassment, slander, defamatory statements, or rumor mongering. HOWEVER, we have been and will continue to DOCUMENT it. Rather than risk arrest and charges by handling things violently like a bunch of teenagers and rednecks, we will handle this professionally, by filing a civil suit for slander, defamation and discrimination, as well as file formal harrassment charges. So please, feel free to post comments, send us messages, and talk about us all you like. But, if youd rather not go to court and lose what little you have paying out damages, then shut the fuck up. Youve been warned.
Attention all internet tough guy trash talking idiots: you can stop telling us "youll never play in this valley again!" any day now. Let me break it down for you: a) you arent shit, you dont run every venue in nepa or have the pull to make that happen, if you did, you wouldnt be playing shows in nepa, youd be touring, like we have been, for 10 years. b) that venue means dick to us, we will continue to play all over the US, including NEPA. one venue getting all twisted over rumors spread by people whove never met or worked with us isnt gonna make us cry. c) what in the unearthly fuck makes you think we care THAT much about playing here anyway? maybe youre new, but, this band isnt from here, we made our bones elsewhere. losing one venue to you jackals isnt a big deal, i dont even understand why were still talking about this.
I just want to take a second and say thank you, for the flood of support and solidarity I have received from other people in the horror scene, as well as our fans all over the country. 10 years is a good run, for any band. We may not have gotten the notoriety of a band like Calabrese, or Blitzkid, but the past 10 years have been a hell of a trip for me, and its because of our fans. This nonsense here has had me really ready to throw in the towel, in the name of preserving my ...own mental health. But if there's one thing I've always prioritized in this business, its that I NEVER want to disappoint our fans.
Full Story At Midnight WILL endure this storm, and we will be playing shows again, as soon as possible. We will not let jealous, talentless people destroy what we have worked so hard building. And we will not disappoint our fans, our friends, by giving up. We will continue to entertain you, until my own health problems prohibit me from doing so, because you deserve it. Without you, these past ten years are nothing, we are nothing. Thank you, for lending me your strength, and standing by us through all of this. Long live the horror.

Full Story At Midnight
As many are aware, on October 25th, my band Full Story At Midnight played its first Pennsylvania show, at The Factory: Underground in Wilkes-Barre Pa, with local bands The Obscuse and Silhouette Lies, as well as horror punk alum Michale Graves.
In attendance at the show, was an individual who less than a month prior, had broken into our then bassist Nate Demming's home, and robbed him. Among the items taken, was a handgun. This indiviual attended the show, and spent the even...
As of this moment, Full Story At Midnight has been removed from the bill of the November 21st show at The Otherside in Wilkes-Barre Pa. This was NOT our choice, we did NOT cancel, the venue owner has refused to allow us to play. We apologize to all of our local fans who were looking forward to seeing us play a longer set with a new lineup, and hopefully we can resolve this issue soon and get back on stage. Failing that, we will be looking to book shows at other venues in the area so we can continue to entertain our fans, old and new.

Thinking about crowd funding to help us get the money together for the new album and tour, since the income from shows isnt going to be what it used to with us getting established in a new area and our fans too far away to come to shows here. I think we can do everything for 5 grand and include some killer perks for contributors, give ourselves a nice long completion date, shoot for some decent goals like cover art by alex pardee or joel robinson or someone. So if everyone who likes our fb page donated 5 bucks, itll be a reachable goal. Thoughts?
Last minute change, were now going on at 9 o clock to cater to the zombie pub crawl crowd, so if youre coming to see us, be there at 8:30 at least, or youll have to wait and see us next month at the otherside
