I’m a little late on posting this, but here’s issue 3 of Breakdown! This month we got to feature A Skylit Drive on the cover, with other features including The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, No Bragging Rights, Quiet Company, and merch guy Derek Buell.
If you read my editor’s letter inside, this issue for us is all about giving back; we hope you’ll join us in supporting one of the most worthy causes in the music community today and buy yourself a copy of this issue here. 80% of all proceeds will go directly to the Kenadee Lucker Education Fund, or simply head over to suicidesilence.net to donate directly.

And please please reblog if your followers like any of these bands! We think what the musicians have to say deserves to be heard, and it’s all in here :) Thank you!!
Quiet Company - If You Want - Songs for Staying In (2010)
Trying again… ‘cause it’s worth it, imho. First song I heard upon my return to home sweet home. Love the sentiment and the anthemic close. “It’s you and me, a nation of two. We’ll do what we please, we’ll love what we do.”
“Lift my head out of my hands, and I’m begging you to say, ‘would you please take me home with you?’ I shudder to think of all the horrible things I could be if I’d never have held you.
And if you want, we can go out tonight and be alone. And if you want, we can stay in tonight, be at home, let the whole wide world just worry about it’s own. It’s you and me.
I’m sure I’ll give you plenty of reasons to leave but you won’t. No, you won’t leave me hanging. We spring from and return to the earth but in between, you will always belong to me.
It’s you and me, a nation of two. Let’s do what we please, let’s love what we do.”
