First and foremost, a big congratulations to Cyrus Bolooki, drummer of the longtime popular rock band, New Found Glory, for tying the knot with his fiance Debi. Hayley Williams was one of the many artists whose worked with the band in the past to pass on her welcoming congratulations via Twitter, and we couldn't be happier for the two.
Artist's who finally settle down usually produce even better music as a result, though typically appear onstage less often. Which is not always the case. After Kellin Quinn took "an arrow in the knee" (if you don't understand the reference, just move on), all Sleeping With Sirens did was tour and tour some more, and that was in addition to the birth of his daughter.
So, we wish you will Cyrus, and we hope that you'll continue to provide awesome rhythm in a band that we love. You can check out their latest release Kill It Live, by clicking here. It features a couple of new tracks and a mostly live renditions of old favorites. We'll have more on that Monday morning.
