How do you know you have a substance abuse problem? When you make a fuss on an airplane about not getting a drink! Puddle of Mudd front man Wes Scantlin got nabbed by police for being drunk and making a fuss on an airplane. Reports indicate that the singer was arrested at an airport in Austin, Texas, after the plane he was on board was actually rerouted because of the ordeal. Apparently he got into a tussle with a flight attendant. What was the fight about? According to reports, it was about alcohol. Police arrested Scantlin for public intoxication and later charged him with interfering with a flight crew. He’s still behind bars in Texas. There is no statement from the band. A bench warrant was issued last month when Scantlin failed to show up to court for a controlled substance charge. He was supposed to show proof he had enrolled in a court ordered drug program.
As I Lay Dying has been releasing some webisodes featuring the band in the studio. The third in the series has just been posted online. It shows a bunch of candid shots of the band laying down tracks and also some downtime as they snack and watch two different movies in two different rooms. Their new album hits stores September 25th.
The video for Flyleaf’s “New Horizons” has been posted online. It features the band playing in a hazy room with a bunch of Polaroid photos all over the ground. The new album, their third, is expected to be released sometime this fall.
