Cannot believe this. If you haven’t yet, please listen to the latest Purple Mountains record. It’s wonderful.

RIP

Nothing proves your maturity as a fan base like leaving abusive messages on an artist’s Instagram for a vaguely sassy comment.

Disappointed there are only ~10 tweets linked in this article; thought it’d be somewhere more in the 30-50 range.

If the latest record moved you and this news has shaken you, know that you are loved, and others know how you feel. He wrote about depression in such profoundly witty and human way, and the news of his passing when he seemed to be doing so well is awful and tragic, no matter what’s happened. Let’s be glad he got the chance to leave such great music before he went.

I didn’t see “terrorism” in the post shown, but I wonder where she can accuse of misspelling when she said, “spelt.” Both need some spelling help. I applaud her for her point in the tweet, but… oops!

Hello everyone…His HatePhilness here…The bass player for Gotcha, a full out recording, and touring band. And we have been out on the road this month supporting our new album “Which God.” But enough of the shameless promo, let’s get to the point. One of the surprising things to me is, the amount of compliments I have received, from other musicians and soundmen alike, has been about my bass sound. Many asking how I get it. Now, while out, I listen to the other bands, whether we are supporting them, or they are supporting us, and I have heard some pretty good bass tone from many of them. http://disasterpeacetheater.com/the-bass-sound-of-hate/

The Dayton shooter was a huge Antifa supporter as well as a big Elizabeth Warren supporter. I don’t think a t shirt informed his idealogy, much as I don’t blame leftists for his actions. Conversely, people shouldn’t blame the right or the left for some sick person’s evil actions.

Couldn’t resist lol but yeah truly tragic news man.
Humor is just my coping mech. This dude will be missed sorely.
Sending love to all my Silver Jews/Purp Mountains fans. Hope this made you laugh.
