Confession frontman fires entire band

Australian hardcore/metal band Confession (Mediaskare Records, Lifeforce Records) has undergone some seismic lineup changes in recent days, as frontman and band founder Michael Crafter has apparently preempted a coup by kicking out the band's other members. Crafter explains: "So today my band tried to part ways with me without me knowing. I have decided to part ways with all members of the band. Confession is my brain child. In the future me and Dan Brown will work together on songs for another record. This is just the beginning. STEP THE FUCK UP."

botticelli 5/10/2012 6:00:49 AM

confession frontman proclaims, "you can't fire me, i quit!"


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:07:23 AM

anonymous 5/10/2012 6:07:43 AM

anonymous 5/10/2012 6:08:11 AM

anonymous 5/10/2012 6:08:46 AM

crafter for prez.


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:09:16 AM

I wonder what successful band these anonymous c*nts are in? Good job doing what you did Crafter, showed them fckwits who's boss ;) We will never hear from the rest of the band again, they are nobody without Crafter as a frontman.


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:09:20 AM

*dan brown and i


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:10:43 AM

how came here from crafter posting this on facebook ?!


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:11:16 AM

Let's face it, if you were in a band with your supposed mates and they tried to kick you out without talking to you bout it, you'd be pretty pissed ~_~ So what if crafter has a bit of an ego, all the best frontmen do and that's what made prom queen fcking tops! Methinks I'll go search HMV for confession' new release :)


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:12:33 AM

Keepin' it bogan!


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:13:10 AM

https://www.facebook.com/c arrymehomeofficial some of the dudes that used to be in confession, its fcking amazing


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:13:19 AM

Crafter <3


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:18:01 AM

"how came here from crafter posting this on facebook ?!" Well you obviously haven't come from school to post here.


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:22:09 AM

Crafter is a fcking legend hahah. Saw them play in Oslo, Norway on their tour with Parkway and it was the best gig I've ever been to.


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:34:42 AM

the browning is stoked!


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:40:30 AM

this is such a pointless action. the other dudes in the band can just find a new vocalist and keep making music, which was their plan all along. STEP THE fck UP


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:48:46 AM

only 2 of the members wrote songs. one of them was crafter


TheLoudestGuyInTheRoom 5/10/2012 6:49:20 AM

Hahaha...the most fame this guy ever had was temporarily fronting BYD. Fosters-flip


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:52:28 AM

the most fame this guy has seen is ripping off a misery signals song in the middle of a field doing the jesus pose every five seconds. lolz


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:53:39 AM

Didn't the EXACT same thing happen with IKTPQ and Crafter??


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:59:48 AM

is anybody feelin me???


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:03:28 AM

publicity scam.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:06:34 AM

Seems like "Crafter" is doing a lot of anonymous posting on here. Never heard of the band, never will listen to them. Australian music is shit and made by inbreds.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:21:29 AM

This is crafter. hahahaa i havent posted anything but i have read it. Im a little surprised with the lack of great burns on here. The lambgoat of old would have had way more to offer. VAN FLIP.. DIE CRAFTER U c*nt.. HOPE U CATCH AIDS... HOPE YOU GET HIT MY A TRACK


LoydChristmas 5/10/2012 7:32:32 AM

^i'd love to insult you mercilessly but I would have done the same thing if they were my idiot bandmates, fck em.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:33:59 AM

Hope you get hit my a track? English is hard, huh? Oh well, guess you don't need to be able to talk to sing.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:35:22 AM

Crafter is awesome for this. If he owns the bands name and writes the music then anybody who want him gone should just kick rocks and form their own band.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:41:09 AM

When someone tries to kick someone out and don't think about how it would pan out. This is what happens.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:43:24 AM

There's a lack of "burns" here because nobody knows or cares who the fck you are, Crafter. The only reason there are more than 2 posts is because of the hilarious headline. I hope you starve to death when the shit trend you're riding finishes collapsing, you talentless fcking parasite.


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:47:48 AM

^why are you so fcking mad? lmao


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:57:10 AM

suck a sagea dck or suh'in...


anonymous 5/10/2012 7:58:38 AM

this band is terrible and anyone who says otherwise is an idiot. and it sounds like he got kicked out. "you're kicking me out? i'm kicking YOU out!" typical crybaby bullcrap


TheLoudestGuyInTheRoom 5/10/2012 8:02:26 AM

Hey Crafter, whatever happened to "Crafterfest"? Rumor in the States has it that it is now a well known gay pride festival, and you are the lead gay of ceremonies

Why does everyone have a boner for this dude? His music blows, queers

Get your neck to play bass. Gymflip


anonymous 5/10/2012 8:19:26 AM

Half of Australia in here, which means probably a few of them are using the same computer as it's the only one in 400 miles. fck this band.


slut 5/10/2012 8:35:52 AM

anonymous 5/10/2012 10:00:43 AM

This headline is ba ha ha ha ha! So dramatic!


anonymous 5/10/2012 11:13:21 AM

Donald Trump is stoked


anonymous 5/10/2012 11:29:24 AM

Dance coaches who specialize in synchronized hopping and wide leg stances are not stoked. Most generic band I've heard all week. Breakdowns like clockwork.


anonymous 5/10/2012 11:35:33 AM

has this dude always acted like a 16 year old? you are an old man, hanging out with kids isn't cool at your age.


anonymous 5/10/2012 2:18:38 PM

he does atrocious inhaled vocals and is terrible live, he's done pretty well for having zero talent.


anonymous 5/10/2012 2:59:12 PM

he got mad that every member fcked his girlfriend


anonymous 5/10/2012 3:45:03 PM

music is uninspired, unoriginal and a parody of itself.

stewietantrum 5/10/2012 5:52:33 PM

I Killed the Prom Queen sucks, and any band that claims to have been influenced by them should stop playing music. Seriously.


anonymous 5/10/2012 6:34:13 PM

im just lovin all the hate people are putting on Australia, fck ALL YOU c*ntS!!! one does not simply...put shit on the best country in the whole fcking world

anonymous 5/10/2012 8:42:40 PM

This guy should just make songs about moshing kangaroo's, straight edge koala's and vegan baby eating dingo's.


anonymous 5/10/2012 9:12:08 PM

What the hell happened to this website?


anonymous 5/10/2012 10:19:38 PM

who the fck does this dude think he is? Phil Collins? good luck Axl not being able to play 4 instruments at the same time.


anonymous 5/10/2012 11:31:47 PM

hahahahahahhahaha


nothinlefttogive 5/10/2012 11:33:38 PM

we booted a kid who flipped out & did the "you can't fire me, i quit" thing. he then did it again w/ another band about a year later. gay dudes do gay things...


anonymous 5/11/2012 6:15:58 AM

fck new songs, how about a follow up to The Lost Symbol.


anonymous 5/11/2012 7:31:23 AM

A lot of anon's patting this fool on the back. Prob spamming the fcking board.


anonymous 5/11/2012 7:42:51 AM

Maybe he's going back to big brother lifeflip


duckduckfootloose 5/11/2012 7:52:48 AM

Props to Crafter for having the guts to post in his own news thread. I never post in threads about me. Also, Triple J rules.


anonymous 5/11/2012 12:06:43 PM

that's because your too busy cataloging your youtube vocal covers you fcking dunce, and no one give a quarter of a flying fck about your band and my girlfriends jeans, learn how to comb your hair and grow a dck if theres any time left over.


anonymous 5/11/2012 12:09:23 PM

Last time I checked there were only three bands to come out of the Land down Under and that is, Blood Duster, The Kill, and AC/DC, everyone else can inhale a bag of dcks.


Snoopy2 5/11/2012 12:13:33 PM

Fire your own fcking life by setting yourself on fire


TheLoudestGuyInTheRoom 5/11/2012 2:39:08 PM

Michael Crafter will end up going out like his idol Michael Hutchence. Either that, or food poisoning from a Bloomin' Onion


anonymous 5/11/2012 3:40:30 PM

i wish this said "kills entire band"


anonymous 5/11/2012 6:36:14 PM

The band called Michael Crafter rules. The actual guy though deserves a horrific death. I hope his mother dies too, the c*nt.


anonymous 5/11/2012 9:13:41 PM

Parkway Drive is stoked.


anonymous 5/12/2012 9:26:26 AM

Hey Guys, Crafter here... cant type but what do u expect???,, a small subculture has me thinking im the shit because i said "rock" over a breakdown 35 years ago when i was 25. send donations to my kickstarter so i can get a daycare going for my biggest fans. phhhrrrrrt.


anonymous 5/12/2012 5:36:21 PM

For such a talentless nobody, how come he's been kicking around the scene so long? Riding a trend wave? I went Crafterfest in Adelaide 6 years ago, and Prom Queen were already quite established then. I hardly think that's a trend wave. I'm not a massive fan of the bands Crafter fronts, but damn, he puts on a fantastic show.


dickzit 5/13/2012 1:30:54 PM

You are all so fcking gay. Lambgoat sucks now.


anonymous 5/13/2012 2:59:57 PM

Is it true that The Rock auditioned to play bass?


anonymous 5/13/2012 5:54:13 PM

Who quits what? The dog shit in my back yard doesn't even give a shit.
