We got new www digs

We got new WWW digs...

It was great timing wrapping up an album and getting ready to promote it then realizing the server our website was on was hacked (and the systems that ran jonnysonic.com email and file sharing for band members and press)!   I was suprised to see an email from the FBI Cyber Squad in my inbox asking about DDos attack from my domain.   Things have been ironed out now, and you reading this means we got our our new shiny website coded up and moved to a new (more secure) server in the cloud.   

Check out some of the new features: like browsing lyrics by category or listening to curated playlists based on genre and intensity.   Woot!

Here's some snippets from the correspondence from the FBI:


Good afternoon,

I'm investigating a recent DDoS attack and I tracked an IP address back to JonnySonic.com which participated in the attack. I'm guessing that web server is compromised with malware. Do you manage the website or could you put me in touch with the person that does?


I found your IP in the victims’ logs and used reverse DNS to trace it back to your site, but it could be anything on the server and not necessarily the jonnysonic site.
For us to take an image, we could send a guy out to meet you in person and you’d have to give him access. If you know how to though, then we’d just send some guys out to pick up the image. What city/state are you located in?
