New Single – Red Cup (I Fly Solo) ft. Lacey Schwimmer & Spose
Hey everyone, it’s JP. Huge news for Cash Cash! We are releasing our first new original song in over a year! The covers were fun… but we’ve been working on a ton of new music and this is the first new song to be released out of the batch! It comes out on iTunes next Tuesday September 21st!! So mark your calendars and please help support us by buying it off of iTunes. If you don’t know who Lacey Schwimmer is… she’s one of the kick ass dancers on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars… she’s been on the show in the past and she’s gonna be dancing on it this upcoming season. So watch out for her she kicks ass!! This is her first time singing on a major release so we’re privileged to have her on the track. Spose is also rapping in the bridge and it came out really dope! He laid down an awesome rap and turned the song into a party anthem. I can’t wait for all you guys to hear it! :-)
Jean Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash checked in with fans on the band’s blog at MySpace (@cashcash) on Monday (November 30), discussing a bizarre incident after their concert in McAllen, Texas. A woman apparently had been groping and propositioning underaged girls attending the show, including some pre-teens, and Makhlouf confronted her, eventually grabbing her beer and pouring it on her. Makhlouf writes:
Ok, so I know a bunch of you guys saw some of our tweets last night and wanna know what the hell happened! haha so here I am to explain it all!
First off, it was hands down the most screwed up thing I’ve seen all year…..
So the show just ended and everyone was just hanging out at the merch tables… this was last night BTW in McAllen, TX. Anyways…. so were all at the merch tables and there’s this trashy lady like in her mid 30’s just chillin there being all drunk and stupid loud with a beer in her hand dancing like a stripper and stuff… which was funny, everyone was laughing at this point… then it got a little weird when she bends over the merch table and goes ok who wants to spank my ass for a $1 and a couple people went and did it and it was still kinda funny at this point… then she grabs some little girl and is like “hey do you wanna touch my b**bs??” and the girl like freaked out and walked away… that got me paying to attention to like what she was doing… then after I see her walk up to these 2 little girls on line to buy stuff and she puts her arm over the little girls shoulder and starts rubbing the little girls chest like right on her breast! And she made this insane pedophile face while doing it!!! The little girl freaked out and ran away immediately without buying the shirt she was online for… Me and our guitar tech Hugh saw it and I freaked out!!! I wad like “lady what the hell is wrong with you?!?! are you a pedophile touching little girls?”…. I mean the girl she touched was literally maybe 12-13…. I got so sick to my stomach and my heart just dropped when it happened seeing the scared expression on that little girls face… so I ran up to her and started yelling sayin stuff like “get your pedophile drunk ass out of here”… she replies with “what are you a faggafile??” I go “are you kidding me lady… sorry I don’t like watching sum drunk 30 year old molesting a little girl… I was like would you touch your daughter like that?” and she answers me with…. “no that’s not my daughter but maybe I’ll be her mommy later tonight…” after she said that I freaked out and grabbed her beer and poured it all over her face drenching the sh** out her!!! Also keep in mind there were like 40 people surrounding us that saw the whole thing happen and cheered me on for doing it… Then she grabbed me ripped my shirt off and tried to attack me… Everyone was screaming at her and she got kicked out… Fans were coming up to me after sayin stuff like “jp thanks so much for doing that, that crazy lady kept coming up to me asking me to touch her boobs and she would take my hand and I got really scared” I was soo fired up at this point it just made me so angry to hear and see all that. So anyways… that’s what happened! Crazyyyyy crazyyy night
So moral of the story… to everyone out there, boy or girl, young or old…. If anyone ever touches you in a way that you don’t feel comfortable make sure to say something and tell someone… don’t be scared to go to the police, or to a school teacher or a friends parents… you should never let anyone disrespect you or your body!!
Ok I’m done venting hahaha but seriously damn I gave it to this lady pretty bad hahah check this video a fan emailed us of it down below to see how it all went down!! haha *NOTE* that its not me doing all the cursing in the video haha it was the person filming… haha

p.s. so my favorite hat fell off when the crazy lady attacked me and then someone stole it off the ground and ran off with it…. but thanks to my man Kyle from Fight Fair I was able to get it back!!! hahah so lucky! If you guys haven’t checked them out yet! Get down to it… They are a super fun band that remind me of all the pop punk bands I used to listen to growing up! go show em some love!!!

Jean Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@cashcash) on Thursday (August 6), talking about the mysterious departure of guitarist Mike Doerr from the band and getting a bit catty (though justifiably if his explanation is true) about carrying on without him. The singer writes:
On to some other news, some of you guys are wondering where Mike went?!? Well let me fill ya in on the situation from the beginning… Back in the day me, Alex, Sam, & Anthony got this band rolling as The Consequence. Then in 2007 we got signed to Universal, changed our name, and started touring. We thought it would be a good idea to add an extra guitarist live. So we started playing with Mike a little under a year ago. He first started as just a live touring musician and then after he earned his badges we put him in the photos and made him a band member. Then, out of nowhere he just got up and left us high and dry in the middle of Warped Tour with no goodbye or anything… we thought it was a little weird, especially since there wasn’t any big fight or anything… Our assumption is that he just wasn’t really into the whole band thing anymore, was getting worn down by the road, and has some other important stuff in his life he needs to cater to. Overall he just didn’t have the passion that the rest of us have… the road isn’t for everybody… this lifestyle is very different than any other job and calls for an extra dose of passion and motivation.
Anyways, here’s my reaction to the whole thing…. so when he left, at first we all freaked out and were like “WTF” it’s in the middle of the Warped Tour and were a man down.. what to do, what to do we got a show to play?!?!” Then I sat the guys down back stage, gathered my thoughts, and was like wait a second… Mike has absolutely ZERO effect on Cash Cash!!!! I was like lets wake up guys we started this band as a 4 piece!!! Recorded our cd as a 4 piece!!! Played shows as a 4 piece!!! And will finish the band as a 4 piece!! We played the show without him and it never felt better!!
Jean Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash checked in with fans on the band’s blog at MySpace (@cashcash), talking about how things have been going on the Vans Warped Tour. Jean Paul writes:
Yooo whats poppin errrrrrrrryybody! Jean Paul on the mic. So we’re on our 5th day of Warped Tour and I wanted to jump on here and let y’all know how it’s been going!!! First off it’s been insane hot! We’ve been baking like chocolate chip cookies everyday!!! At first the heat and sun kinda drove me crazy cause it’s like being out there all day… but after the first day I learned to put sun tan lotion on and drink plenty of water and bammm I’m back on track!! Now it’s the 4th day and I absolutely love it. It’s such a different type of show like outside blue skies, red hot sun, I’m growing to love it!! There’s just this awesome feel good vibe to playing outside in this beautiful world we live in!! Mother Nature really is amazing!! Alright I’ll cut the hippie sh** but for real… I know if I was home I’d be sitting in my room on my computer and missing out on this awesome summer! So do like we do!!! Get out in the sun whether your coming to Warped or not!! Go outside, blast some Cash Cizzle on your boombox and have a water gun fight or something!! Go to the park enjoy this last month of summer!!! :-) Alright time to go get back out there!!! Later loves mwahhhhhhhh!
