IMPORTANT NEWS: UNDER THE GUN REVIEW

Hey everyone,

As for CurbsideAudio, its sad to leave it behind, but it was never meant to go anywhere. It got my foot in the door and for that, I am very grateful. Thanks for reading <3.

The pervert obviously knows that he’s just an ugly, worthless waste of life that only gets what he wants from girls that are much younger than him, only because they’re drunk while he claims to be “straight edge”. Are you telling me that straight-edge kids are allowed to completely use and molest girls younger than them while they are intoxicated?I have evidence of Joshua Woodard with me. Saying “You’re nothing but a fuck to me. ” is NOT a thing that a grown man should say to a young girl. Maybe you worthless perverts should’ve thought about your future, instead of ignoring me like cowards?I will do everything in my power to let people know what a disgusting, pathetic individual Joshua Woodard is, and until Victory Records stops promoting a band that allows this individual access to these young kids every single day, I will not stop telling everyone I know, and even people I don’t know, that JOSHUA WOODARD from OCALA FLORIDA whom is in the band A DAY TO REMEMBER, is nothing but a pedophile, and Victory Records PAYS HIM to tour the country and molest girls that are given the false impression that he is something that he isn’t. I will go directly to Victory Records and ruin your careers with hard, factual evidence, and there will be nothing you will ever be able to do to un-do the mistake you made of acting so ignorant and careless about another human beings’ life. Starting today, I will post blog after blog, and make article after article telling people why I feel the way I do, and why and how I know that Joshua Woodard needs to be either put away in prison, or detained from girls younger than him for his entire life. Take this how you want, but I will be a thorn in your side for carrying such useless baggage with you known as the scumbag bassist of your band.

I will personally talk to him and tell that shit isn’t cool, and it can’t happen. Other than that. He is a grown man, that should be responsible for his own actions. We are very sorry to you, and the person who was in question. Our band in no way condones that kind of behavior. All I can do is tell you it will be addressed. -jeremy

Judging by your personal success, I would not risk your band, as well as your personal name and image being trashed by one freak that can’t keep his hands off of younger girls when given the opportunity. I honestly appreciate your response as I said before, however I cannot simply stop what I am doing because he was “warned” to not do it again. I will cease in certain aspects of the public informing I have taken part in, but any aspect regarding Mr. Woodard(except your band, for now) will be completely publicly addressed for the time being, at least until I see some form of action being done. Judging by the entire incident from details and conversations received, Mr. Woodard somewhat knew exactly what he was doing, when the right timing was, and how to do it. He knew exactly the right things to say to a young person to make them believe and do things that they would normally never do upon normal circumstances; and as role models for a younger generation, this behavior can not in any way, shape, or form be ignored or even slightly forgotten. I respect all of you as musicians, and I certainly do not want to affect your cd sales, fanbase, and image over one bad apple; But I can only hope that you would all choose the right thing to do, and avoid a future incident regarding this man that could affect you as a group. Judging by the physical evidence I have by itself, you can see that there is something seriously wrong. Take into account others that have been used like this, and you could have a pretty serious problem. When the word fully gets out; Your band, as well as Victory Records, may have something huge on your hands. I have nothing wrong with you guys screwing all the women you want, but keep in mind the keyword “women”. These girls won’t speak up because they are brainwashed by his popularity that comes from your music and reputation. I know that these individuals should be intelligent enough to deny, but so should Mr. Woodard. These girls feel honored at the time these things happen, but down the road, these events lead to serious problems that will be publicly addressed and will most likely fall back on you as a group instead of him as a person. I can only hope that you will all choose the right decision regarding this matter, and allow me, and others; to lay this to rest and not consider these people victims of your popularity reputation anymore. Sincerely – J. D.

I’m sure they wouldn’t want him touring the country after they see for themselves. If you expect to deter me because he said it won’t happen again, you are wrong. I am only doing this for your bands sake, which is the only reason I haven’t taken this to the level it should be at. I suggest prompt action, and I would also use punctuation in a situation like this, for the sake of making yourself look better as well. Thank you.

Were not kicking someone out of our band because he made a mistake that he has told us would never happen again. If you still want to cause problems for him that’s your own deal. He is a grown man that makes his own decisions. Do what you will. I have been nothing but respectfull to you, and you insult my grammer? I’m done with this whole thing. I did what I said I would. Do what you will.

Tarcy Thomason explains his departure from Artist Vs. Poet

Here is Tracy Thomason’s official departure statement:

There is not an easy way for me to start this… This is to anyone who has ever supported me, or Artist Vs Poet. First of all… I truly believe that i’ve come to know, and become friends with, some of the most genuine fans ever. And that is why this is so hard for me to say:
 
Shortly after the Fearless Friends tour i made the decision to part ways with Artist Vs Poet, i know… I got to the point before i explained myself, well here it is folks. I made my dream come true and married my best friend Heather early last year and also had my first born child Lennon Cody Thomason. This has been the absolute best thing that has ever happened to me, just seeing my wife and baby boy everyday means the world to me, which is why i had to make the decision to stay at home for good. Quitting something that was my life for so many years, meeting such amazing people like (to name a few) Canada, Devin, Brooke, Amanduhhhh, Maddie, Brittni, Laura, Fat Kat, Laura  not to mention my new family that i had the pleasure of touring with, and the best label out there, Fearless Records, has has been hard for me…. but i gained so much more, there is no way i could put into words how happy i am. I could not be any more lucky to have the family that i have. 
 
On that note i want nothing but the best for Joe Kirkland and Jason Dean continuing with Artist Vs Poet. I love those guys and hope nothing but the best for them!
In no way, shape, or form done with music. If you would like to keep in touch with me, my family, and new beginnings, stay tuned.
 
In the words of John LENNON: “Life is what happens to you while you’re  busy making other plans”
 
I love you guys and thank you for everything!
Tarcy Thomason
