Every Time I Die get their #SHINFO ripped off by Hot Topic

Every Time I Die are one of the greatest bands around. They are prolific tweeters. Not only is the band twitter very active but singer Keith Buckley, guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams, drummer Ryan Leger AND former bassist Josh Newton all do regular tweetery.

Basically, they came up with a phrase that encapsulated the most awesome tweets in the world. You know. Stuff like, “I’m eating an apple.” Stuff like, “My car has a flat tyre.” Stuff like, “I’m having a heart attack LOL.” They call it #shinfo. Because it’s shit info. It’s like Brangelina.

Now, 642-shop strong teen fashion retail chain Hot Topic have used the word ‘SHINFO’ on a rubber bracelet. That could be seen as theft of intellectual property.

Finch to post new songs online

July 17th, 2008

Finch Thrash Hits Randy Strohmeyer Nate Barcalow

Finch were wrongly reported to be putting up some new songs on their MySpace last night by some unscrupulous Internet pirates. Luckily they were only 24 hours out.

The Californian emo kings are going to put two songs online on 18 July 2008 at midnight PST, which is 8am BST (if you’re in the UK).

Did you manage to catch them when they came over to the UK for Give It A Name and the other intimate shows? Finch are about to head out on the road in the US but we reckon they’ll be over here in the autumn, or spring 2009 at the latest.

Finch release their new Self-Titled EP on 22 July 2008 digitally and on 29 July 2008 through Hot Topic. You’ll probably need to buy that on import if you don’t live in the US.
