COLOMBIAN NECKTIE: West Coast Sludgecore Merchants Stream "Kevin's Song"
At Skulls 'N' Bones;

Twilight Upon Us
Full-Length Out Now

 

 

Today Los Angeles sludgecore merchants, COLOMBIAN NECKTIE, are pleased to reveal "Kevin's Song" to the masses via Skulls 'N' Bones. The emotionally-driven hymn comes by way of the band's new full-length, Twilight Upon Us, self-released earlier this month.

 

Crowned "scary sick" by Decibel Magazine, Twilight Upon Us was produced by Erol "Rollie" Ulug (Graf Orlock) at Bright Lights Studios and has been flooring fans and critics alike with its meticulous hardcore/sludge fusion. AngryMetalGuy commends COLOMBIAN NECKTIE's, "heavy, muddy, and chunky riffs," and "no-bullshit song-writing approach," furthering that, "COLOMBIAN NECKTIE are great for getting right to the point and not teasing you or leading you on. Song writing is definitely the band's main focus on Twilight Upon Us, and that's where they shine." In a 4/5 rating, Stereokiller calls the record, "violent and impressive...," Wonderbox Metal dubs it, "highly recommended listen for all connoisseurs of heaviness," while Echoes And Dust adds, "if you're looking for some intense music that brings together some of your old favorites - Dystopia, Mohinder,Pg. 99 or even Cave In, check out  Twilight Upon Us."

 

As devouring as the record is however, much of Twilight Upon Us is rooted in tragedy as evidenced in ten-minute opus "Kevin's Song," written in honor of their late former bandmate. "As soon as I heard [guitarists] Ben [Daniels] and Juan [Hernandez-Cruz] playing the riffs for what would become 'Kevin's Song,' I knew we had something," relays vocalist Scott Werren. "Lyric-wise, all I could think of at first is the feeling of pain and loss but also this vision of Kevin just moving past a physical form and exploring the galaxy. So I made it like silver surfer riding through the universe giving us a report back on his findings."

 

Hear "Kevin's Song," now playing at Skulls 'N' Bones, at THIS LOCATION.

 

And if you missed it, sample "Guiding Light," still streaming at Decibel Magazine at THIS LOCATION as well as "Sleepwalking" available at Metal Insider at THIS LOCATION.

 

Named in honor of a song by iconic noise rockers Big Black but more commonly known as a method of murder where the victim's throat is slashed and the tongue is pulled through the open wound, COLOMBIAN NECKTIE has earned a reputation for their punishing riffs and maniacal DIY work ethic. Though clearly rooted in hardcore, tracks like the syncopated, sludgy death march of "Play The Game" and midtempo thrash of "Drought," complete with squealing synths, add a welcome dose of variance to an album that's uncompromising in its aggression.

 

Twilight Upon Us is out now independently. Order your copy today HERE.

ABOUT EXODUS

With a career spanning 34 years, EXODUS have not only helped shape and define the thrash metal genre for over three decades, but continually seek to raise its standards. One of the forefathers of the Bay Area scene that became known and envied throughout the world, the band’s 1985 debut album, Bonded By Blood, has since become a legacy album featuring mandatory live staples such as "Strike Of The Beast," "A Lesson In Violence," and the album’s title track. Formed in 1980, the band’s original members included Tom Hunting on drums, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Tim Agnello on guitars, and Carlton Melson on bass. With a line-up that has evolved throughout the years, the current incarnation of EXODUS charges into the future with returning frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza on vocals, Gary Holt and Lee Altus on guitars, Tom Hunting on drums, and Jack Gibson on bass. In 2014, EXODUS closed the first half of the year with stellar performances at Kirk Hammett’s Fear FestEvil and Rock On The Range, as well as a groundbreaking tour with fellow thrash legends Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies. To date, EXODUS has released nine studio albums, two live albums, and one compilation. Their most recent release, Exhibit B: The Human Condition, debuted in the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in 2010.

BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey reveals second excerpt from new novel,
 'Death and Other Dances', via Loudwire.com

         
     
      
Carla Harvey, one half of the female-fronted duo that screams for the BUTCHER BABIES, has released a new novel, Death and Other Dances, which is available in select bookstores, as well as Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Kindle. This semi-autobiographical work tells the story of Autumn Franklin - an awkward, biracial Detroit native - that is disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background. When Autumn's young parents divorce, she becomes even more withdrawn, yet survives the cards that she's been dealt by relocating to the alluring City of Angels, where she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between a drastic career change: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.

To read an excerpt from Death and Other Dances, head over to Loudwire.com for the exclusive sneak peek: http://loudwire.com/butcher-babies-carla-harvey-death-other-dances-book-excerpt/

Another previously released excerpt can also be read at Revolver Mag.com: http://www.revolvermag.com/news/butcher-babies-carla-harvey-shares-excerpt-from-new-book-death-and-other-dances.html

LA's breakthrough metal act, BUTCHER BABIES, unleashed their debut album, Goliath, last year to critical acclaim, with press hailing it as a "relentless, full-force storm from start to finish" (New Transcendence.com). On September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe), the band will release a new EP of cover tunes, titled Uncovered, that will surely please fans of the BUTCHER BABIES, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally (THE OSMONDS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, etc.).

In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses,' we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way -- and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?"

GERARD WAY ANNOUNCES FIRST SOLO U.S. TOUR TO KICK OFF IN OCTOBER

 FORMER MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE FRONTMAN WILL PERFORM SONGS FROM UPCOMING SOLO DEBUT HESITANT ALIEN, DUE FROM WARNER BROS. RECORDS ON SEPTEMBER 30TH 

August 26, 2104 - Los Angeles, CA - Fresh off his weekend performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals in England, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has announced that he will hit the road for a string of U.S. tour dates in October performing songs from his upcoming solo debut album, Hesitant Alien, which will be released on September 30th by Warner Bros. Records. Rolling Stone remarked of the eight songs from Hesitant Alien that Way revealed during his Reading Festival set: "snappy, catchy songs delivered with arty panache." Way will also perform four shows in Australia for the Soundwave Festival in February 2015. Tickets for the U.S. dates go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, August 27. For ticketing and on sale information, click HERE.  

 

Hesitant Alien is now available for pre-order from all digital retailers. Exclusive album bundles are also available for pre-order at GerardWay.com. Those who pre-order the album will receive the track "No Shows" instantly as a free download. Watch the music video for "No Shows" HERE.

 

Working with producer Doug McKean, Way knew immediately what he wanted Hesitant Alien to sound like. "I wanted to make the small things sound big," he says. "My intention was to make 100 percent uncompromised art, using the currently least radio-friendly instrument, the guitar. I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments. I knew I would look at who my guitar heroes were in art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein, and I drew a lot of influence from shoe-gaze and Britpop. I want the record to sonically galvanize people." Hesitant Alien was mixed by Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys).

 

Lyrically, Way wrote about what he knew at the time, "which was struggle, beginnings, finding a newness in the mundane and the abstract," he says. "I looked to the Britpop poets like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn, drawing upon everyday life. I also experimented with the abstract, and looked at Frank Black's work both with the Pixies, and as a solo artist. There was no concept and no call-to-arms."

PRONG Premieres New Video on Loudwire!


 

North American Tour Begins in September - New Single Out Soon

Fresh off their European festival summer, New York Metal mainstays PRONG are gearing up to hit the road this September in North America in support of their latest release Ruining Lives which was released earlier this year by SPV/Steamhammer.  The tour begins September 10th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through October 14th in San Francisco, CA.  Many of the dates will see PRONG playing alongside thrash masters Overkill.  Following a quick break the band will be taking part in Slipknot's "Knotfest" October 25th in San Bernardino, CA. 

 

The band recently completed filming on a new video for the song "Remove, Separate Self" (taken from Ruining Lives).  Brian Cox and Marcelo Palomino directed the video, and it is receiving its exclusive premiere today on Loudwire.  Check it out HERE.

 

Tommy Victor: "PRONG has made a video for the song "Remove, Separate Self", the new single from our recent LP Ruining Lives.  The song and the video are distinctively PRONG, with a soul-searching and apocalyptic vibe.  As a follow up to "Turnover" we will release it on 7" vinyl as well.

The single and video will correspond with our U.S. /Canada tour starting Sept 10th through Oct. 14th (see www.prongmusic.com for the dates).

Enjoy the video and we'll see you out on the road!"

 

SPV/Steamhammer will be releasing a new digital and 7" single of "Remove, Separate Self".  There will be two versions of the digital single which will be released September 12th.  The 7" will be released on October 24th. The standard version of the single will include the following tracks:

 

1. Remove, Separate Self (album version)

2. "Separate Self, Remove" inspired by and created from "Remove, Separate Self" by Prong (Matt Heafy de-mix)

 

Matt Heafy about the "de-mix" he created: "With "Remove, Separate Self" - I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line - the title itself - the idea of "separating yourself" made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future. The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place. Sometimes "remixes" do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a "remix" is in the first place, even one's idea of what a song should sound like."

 

The exclusive iTunes edition of the single features a bonus track, which is a version of "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck".  This song was taken from PRONG's "Unleashed in the West - Official Bootleg".

 

Ruining Livesis the follow-up to the acclaimed 2012 release Carved Into Stone and continues to show the band on an upward trajectory, proving that despite having a long, illustrious career PRONG can still make records that matter and re-invent themselves without negating their roots.  If you have not picked up a copy yet, be sure to get one on Amazon or iTunes

BUTCHER BABIES announce details for upcoming 'Uncovered' EP

         
   
      
Taking a page from heroes METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES, Los Angeles breakthrough metal act, BUTCHER BABIES, have recorded an EP of cover tunes that will surely please fans of the band, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally. Titled Uncovered, this EP will be released on September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe) and features the following five tracks:

Uncovered track-listing
1. Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers
2. They're Coming to Take Me Away
3. Don't Give a Fuck
4. Crazy Horses
5. Pussy Whipped
 

BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey (vocals) comments: "It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them. We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was 'They're Coming to Take Me Away' by NAPOLEAN XIV because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen. The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat..."

BUTCHER BABIES' Heidi Shepherd (vocals) adds: "As an eight or nine-year-old little girl, I used to rummage through my parents' albums and 8-tracks looking for some cool music. In hopes that my parents had at least a little bit of good taste, I would play every single song looking for something that I could latch on to. That's when I came across 'Crazy Horses' by THE OSMONDS; it was the heaviest song I had heard at that age. I would play that song over and over and over again, I was addicted. To this date, it's still one of my favorite songs and reminds me so much of growing up in Provo, Utah."

In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses,' we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way -- and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?"

To pre-order Uncovered, please visit: www.ButcherBabiesOfficial.com
 
BUTCHER BABIES released their Century Media debut full length, Goliath, last summer and took part in that year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they are a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and a breakout band of the fest. Following that, they toured the US with the legendary Glenn Danzig and were invited to play at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare. Early 2014 saw the band invade Europe for the first time, where they quickly established themselves as one of the dominant new-comers in the global heavy metal scene. The band then spent the Spring of 2014 on tour with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and DOWN, playing on many of America's premier metal festivals - Columbus OH's Rock on the Range and Oklahoma's Rocklahoma, to name a few.
 
It was on this tour that the band made plans to record some of their favorite tunes. Each band member chose a track, and in the early summer of this year, they entered the studio with producer Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, GOJIRA, 5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH) to dissect and "butcher" these five classics, creating something all their own.
 
Shortly before the release of Uncovered, BUTCHER BABIES will embark on their first headlining run in the US. The band will end their tour playing at this year's Knotfest, taking place in San Bernardino, CA. A complete list of their upcoming tour dates is below:

SHADOWS FALL ANNOUNCE FINAL EUROPEAN TOUR
 


Massachusetts metal band Shadows Fall will embark on their final European tour in less than a week. The “Hell on Earth” tour will begin in Frankfurt, Germany on Aug. 29 and runs until Sept. 14.  The tour also features Unearth, The Acacia Strain and War of Ages. The band has been touring non-stop for over a decade and has decided that it’s time to “take a hiatus” from future extensive touring. In addition to this upcoming European run, Shadows Fall are planning a final North American tour and will possibly visit a few other territories some time over the next year. We will post details once everything is locked in. There are many factors that are behind this difficult decision that the band has been dealing with for some time now. In a nutshell it comes down to families, member availability, and finances. Further impacting our decision is the fact that we have two members with young children. Plain and simple, they want to be with their families to watch their kids grow. Touring full time in a band these days has never been more difficult financially. When you have to ensure the future comfort of your family, difficult decisions have to be made. Another reason is the fact that our lead guitarist (Jon Donais) is now in Anthrax, which makes it hard for us to do any extensive touring with our full lineup. Due to his obligations with Anthrax, he will not be able to join us on this European tour. Felipe Roa will once again fill Jon’s position and we are thankful to him for joining us on this run. Also returning for this tour is original bassist Paul Romanko who has sat out from touring for the last two years to raise his son. This has been a real hard decision for all of us to make but we feel at this time this is the right thing to do. We don’t hate each other, we’re not bitter, we in fact still have a really great time together, but the ride has slowed down and it's time for the next chapters in our lives, whatever that may be. We can't thank the fans that have supported Shadows Fall since the beginning enough. Without you, none of this would have been possible.  For the past decade and a half, we have been able to create the music we have always wanted to hear and share it with music fans everywhere. That being said, you still may see us at a festival or two over the next few years…if they ask, we will come! In the meantime please check out the dates for the last European go around and we will see you out there!

SEPULTURA: Revolver Premieres "Territory" Clip From
Sepultura And Les Tambours du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio

 

SEPULTURA - who stands among Brazil's most successful bands ever - will unveil a new live offering entitled Sepultura And Les Tambours du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio next month. In a spectacular performance that finds SEPULTURA accompanied throughout by the French industrial percussion group Les Tambours du Bronx, notorious for beating 225-liter barrels with beech wood bats or even axe handles, the show was recorded from the band's main stage appearance at the legendary Rock In Rio gala in 2013. The sheer volume of sound, percussive enormity and powerful presentation sets this presentation apart from any previous SEPULTURA concert release to date.

 

In celebration of its impending street date, today Revolver Magazine offers a glimpse into this awe inspiring production with a five-and-a-half minute clip of "Territory," now playing at THIS LOCATION.

 

Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio boasts some of SEPULTURA's most revered tunes including "Refuse/Resist," and "Roots Bloody Roots," which sees the audience chanting the entire cut from beginning to end. With a one-hour run time divided into thirteen cuts, the album also features a cover of Prodigy's "Firestarter," the fan-chanted "Sepulnation" hymn, and music from the band's Kairos full-length. Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio will come availableon CD, DVD and for the first time in the band's history, Blu-Ray via a partnership with Rock In Rio, MZA Music and Eagle Rock Entertainment. In addition, the DVD includes an exclusive documentary of behind-the-scenes preparation with interviews, rehearsal and sound-check footage and clips of the band just seconds before they hit the stage.

 

Sepultura And Les Tambours du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio will be released in North America via Eagle Rock Entertainment on September 16th, 2014.

WAYNE STATIC Announces
Co-Headline Tour with
Powerman 5000

WAYNE STATIC the founding member and leader of Evil Disco innovators Static-X will be hitting the road this fall on a co-headline run with Powerman 5000. American Head Charge will provide support on most dates. The tour will kick off November 6th in Waterloo, IA and is currently scheduled to run through November 30th in McCallen, TX. A complete list of dates can be found below. More dates will be added in the coming weeks.

STATIC on the upcoming tour:

“2014 has been an awesome year! We just finished up the 15th anniversary Wisconsin Death Trip tour. I’ve got the best band behind me that I’ve ever had, and I am very excited to round out the year with a co-headline tour with Powerman 5000. It’s another 15th anniversary tour! It’s a testament to both bands that we are both still going strong and the timing is perfect for us to tour together again. I am equally excited to share the stage with American Head Charge again. I believe it was 2005 when we toured together last. This is a great line up and this tour is gonna kill!”

About Wayne Static:

WAYNE STATIC is the enigmatic former frontman and namesake of Static-X, now forging a successful solo career. WAYNE STATIC is considered the Terminator of contemporary rock music with his signature blunt-force-trauma melding of industrial rock, thrash metal, and futuristic disco, which is nothing if not cybernetic. But when you look back at WAYNE STATIC’s 15-year legacy, the comparison goes beyond the music; having weathered musical trends, survived lineup shifts, and even severed long-time creative partnerships to emerge as a streamlined metallic machine.


WAYNE STATIC Lineup:

Wayne Static- Guitar / Lead VOX
Ashes - Lead Guitarist
Frankie Sil - Bassist / BV
Bevan Davies - Drummer

About Powerman 5000:

Armed with giant hooks and crowd-empowering choruses, Powerman 5000 deliver the electroshocked power-anthems that only Spider One and his merry band of musical superheroes can pull off on Builders Of The Future, their first album with T-Boy Records. The platinum selling band conquered rock radio and built a career in the underground, embodying the very title of one of their most enduring and ubiquitous hits, “When Worlds Collide” and sorta upending the sentiment implied by “Nobody’s Real.” Because these guys are real, crating only the most authentic music they can.

Powerman 5000 has created a culture around their band. Part of the appeal is the way Powerman 5000 pilfers through the most exciting elements of schlocky pop culture, bridging the gap between dance clubs, Comic-Con and the Vans Warped Tour. But there’s something even grander in play with songs like “You’re Gonna Love It, If You Like It Or Not,” “How To Be A Human” and “I Can’t F-cking Hear You” from Builders Of The Future, something that was also present in their biggest hits: a spirit of community.

Powerman 5000 Lineup:

Spider One – Vocals
Rich Jazmin – Lead Guitar
Nick 'Sci55ors' Quijano – Rhythm Guitar
Gustavo Aued – Bass
DJ Rattan – Drums

Otherwise release their new single "Darker Side of the Moon"

Peace comes through struggle. It's a reward that's earned rather than simply given. It's the product of tireless work and an unbreakable spirit against all odds and opposition. OTHERWISE are no strangers to that struggle, rising up to become rock 'n' roll contenders in the face of a tumultuous musical climate and a series of personal hardships. The Las Vegas hard alternative rock quintet-Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar/vocals], Corky Gainsford [drums/vocals], Vassilios Metropoulos [bass], & Andrew Pugh [guitar/vocals]-catalog the next chapter of this journey on their second full-length album, Peace At All Costs.

The musicians had the chance to experience the other side of their hometown while recording. Vegas View Studios sits on the edge of the Las Vegas Valley, offering a stunning panorama of the wilderness surrounding the city. "It was the most beautiful view," affirms the singer. "Most recording studios are like casinos. There are no windows. You go in, and you have no idea what time it is. We had a beautiful vista of our hometown, and it lent to inspiration every night we were working." That lush expanse carries over into the first single "Darker Side of the Moon." Building from a thick distorted guitar into a robust melody, the song blasts off on a hypnotic and hard-hitting hook, opening up the doorway into Peace At All Costs.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

TO HEADLINE NIGHT TWO OF

ROB ZOMBIE’S GREAT AMERICAN NIGHTMARE

IN VILLA PARK, IL SEPTEMBER 27

 

The Devil Wears Prada is set to headline the second night of the Chicago area engagement of Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare. The acclaimed quintet will be joined by special guests (TBA) as they take over the ultimate Halloween horror event at the Odeum Expo in Villa Park, IL on September 27.

After spending their summer on the main stage of the recently wrapped 2014 Vans Warped Tour, The Devil Wears Prada will help launch the Halloween season in Chicagoland with sounds described as “apocalyptic” (Rolling Stone), “gut-wrenchingly brutal” (Alternative Press), and “definitely bleak, harrowing, and f*cking heavy” (Revolver). Tickets are on sale now at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com, with prices starting at $25.

The Great American Nightmare in Chicago will feature three attractions based on Zombie's own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses. These attractions were first seen at the 2013 Great American Nightmare debut in Pomona, California and have been improved and enhanced based on visitor feedback.

The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare will include the Bloody Boulevard with freak shows, musical entertainment – including Street Drum Corps’ renowned Prime Evil Percussion -- roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

As previously announced, Rob Zombie will perform at both opening nights of the Great American Nightmare’s two-city engagement: in Scottsdale, Arizona (with guests Powerman 5000) on September 19, and in Chicago on September 26. Tickets for opening night in each city include the Rob Zombie concert and are available starting at only $45. A limited number of VIP packages are also available for purchase at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com. All VIP packages include a commemorative t-shirt and quicker access to the haunted attractions than general admission. Some packages also include a designated viewing area for the concert.

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will celebrate the Halloween season in Villa Park, IL on the following dates:

September: 26-27

October: 3-4, 10-12, 16-19, 23- 26, 30-31

November: 1

Hours for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will be 7:00 PM until midnight (Fridays and Saturdays) and 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM (Thursdays and Sundays).

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is a creative collaboration between master of the macabre Rob Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman. The event is produced by Rob Zombie, Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould.

Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare at the Odeum Expo in Villa Park is presented by 101WKQX.

KORN AND THEIR FANS TAKE ON THE HATERS
FAN-ASSISTED VIDEO FOR “HATER”
PREMIERES EXCLUSIVELY ON VEVO TODAY (8/21)

WATCH HERE: http://vevo.ly/935o9F

“HATER,” THE LEAD SINGLE OFF NEWLY RELEASED WORLD TOUR EDITION REISSUE,
‘THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION,’
AND TOP 10 HIT AT ‘ACTIVE ROCK’ RADIO


“Self harm or suicide is never the answer. Don’t let the haters win.” – KORN

Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum hard rock luminaries KORN premiered their fan-assisted official video for “Hater”--the lead single off their world tour edition deluxe reissue album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION (released July 22 on Prospect Park)--exclusively on VEVO. Directed by Yarvo Productions, the video features fan-submitted video clips where they share personal experiences of being a victim of bullying, abuse or hatred and how that affected them. Watch the video for “Hater”: http://vevo.ly/935o9F.

“Hater” invaded radio airwaves last month and has already vaulted into the Top 10 at Active Rock radio, a testament to the strong relation KORN’s fan have to the music and lyrical content. On “Hater, frontman Jonathan Davis’ lyrics address challenges of victims of bullies and haters. In this video clip, the band has broken the fourth wall by providing an opportunity for real fans to speak out about their experiences of being hated. 

“Almost everyone has felt bullied, pressured and beat down in their life by their haters,” says Jonathan Davis.  “This video helps to give a public voice to some of the challenges real people have faced, and reminds us all that self-harm and suicide."

The song kicks into gear with the seminal grinding guitar volley between Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer. Meanwhile, Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu cranks out a throbbing bass bounce punctuated by Ray Luzier’s impenetrable percussion. At the eye of the storm, Jonathan Davis delivers a haunting verse that quickly blossoms into an eerily unforgettable chorus. For the track, the group teamed up with hitmaker/producer Don Gilmore, who also produced last year's number eight-debuting LP, THE PARADIGM SHIFT, as well as the group’s #1 active rock radio smash Never Never.”

Earlier this week (8/18), Rollingstone.com premiered the live version of the video for “Hater” featuring video cobbled together of the band’s wildly enthusiastic audiences from across the globe; watch at http://rol.st/1rVHyok. The world tour edition double album--THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION--features three brand new songs (“Hater,” “Die Another Day” and “The Game Is Over”), a bevy of tracks from last year’s album recorded live all over the world and expanded artwork. THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION is available exclusively in stores at Best Buy or online at Bestbuy.com or iTunes

OBITUARY Release Album Trailer For Inked in Blood

First Samples of New Music Available


 

Available October 28th on Relapse Records

 

"OBITUARY fall into that rare category of living legends who've still got the inimitable spark that made them so special in the first place - the agonized, pulverizing drone of their bludgeoning, unstoppable tank-tread rhythms is something no one else has been able to adequately copy in two decades of trying." 

Blabbermouth-

Death metal legends OBITUARY make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records.

Today the first taste of Inked in Blood has been made available in an exclusive album teaser video.  Samples from three brand new tracks can be heard in the video, which is available for viewing HERE.

 

The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame.  OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog.  OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre!  Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!!

Following those dates, OBITUARY hits the road with Carcass, Exhumed and Noisem from October 28th through November 9th.

JANE’S ADDICTION, RISE AGAINST

ANCHOR RETURN OF THE SHINDIG MUSIC FESTIVAL

GOGOL BORDELLO, CLUTCH, FISHBONE, HALESTORM, LUCERO, MANY MORE

JOIN THE PARTY FOR BALTIMORE’S ONLY TRUE ROCK & ROLL FESTIVAL

 Daylong Celebration Captures Spirit and Work Ethic of Charm City’s Neighborhoods

Saturday, Sept. 27 @ Carroll Park

 TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

“My favorite thing about this festival was the overall vibe of the good people of Baltimore. The festival was packed in tight with positive, sincere people who all were there to see some great music and have fun.”

- The Vinyl District (DC)

BALTIMORE (Monday, Aug. 18, 2014) – A "Shindig" is defined as "a large, lively party celebrating something,” and in this case, that "something" is the DIY Rock & Roll spirit and work ethic of Baltimore at the core of THE SHINDIG MUSIC FESTIVAL, returning Saturday, Sept. 27 to Carroll Park with alt-rock legends JANE’s ADDICTION and punk rock favorites RISE AGAINST anchoring a daylong, two-stage lineup in the city’s Pigtown district that’s as fun and diverse as Charm City’s people and neighborhoods.

Adding to the eclectic festivities on this year’s two main stages will be Gogol Bordello, Clutch, Fishbone, Halestorm, Lucero, J Roddy Walston & The Business, Larry and His Flask, The Mahones, The Bots, Charm City Devils, Bad Seed Rising. Gates open at Noon. Music Begins at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale NOW at $60 until Aug. 16 (early bird); $70 thereafter. VIP tickets also available. To order tickets, go to www.missiontix.com/THESHINDIG. Complete festival information at www.theshindigbaltimore.com.

The all-day festival will feature two identical main stages with NO OVERLAPPING SETS of music. The Vending Village in The Woods offers a variety of Baltimore’s best and familiar food and beverage options with plenty of seating and shade available. The Woods is also home to the Ripley's "Believe it or Not" Side Stage featuring an array of rare talent including sword swallowers, fire breathers, aerial acrobats, burlesque performances and other visually captivating oddities.

"I was born and raised in Baltimore and creating a festival and vibe we've never seen was my goal,” says THE SHINDIG’s curator, longtime Maryland independent concert promoter, Paul Manna at 24-7 Entertainment “As a fan of every artist playing, I just know that thousands of live music lovers will truly appreciate this lineup as much as I do. Seeing Perry Farrell and Jane's Addiction, one of my all-time favorite bands, perform in Pigtown will certainly be the icing on the cake.”

The Shindig's inaugural event last year, featuring Dropkick Murphys, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, The Gaslight Anthem, Clutch, The Mighty MightyBosstones, Reverend Horton Heat, The Hold Steady, and more, was a resounding success, prompting Pigtown officials to welcome its 2014 return.

"The Shindig showcased our historic neighborhood to the most people ever gathered for an event in Pigtown or Carroll Park - without any incidents or arrests,” says Ben Hyman, Director of Pigtown Main Street. “They are yet another example of our investment in Pigtown, including the opening of nine new businesses and hundreds of thousands of dollars in economic development."

Carroll Park is located 1/2 mile from Camden Yards, M&T Bank Stadium, I-95, and I-395 in the heart of Baltimore’s beloved Pigtown. To eliminate any parking concerns, 24-7 Entertainment has reserved several large, secured parking lots that border the festival grounds conveniently landmarked by the monstrous Montgomery Park building.

The Shindig is proud to welcome festival lovers from all over the Mid-Atlantic region to our beloved hometown of Baltimore, MD for another year of great music and memories.

BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey reveals first excerpt from new novel, 'Death and Other Dances', via Revolver Mag.com; announces signing and reading at Los Angeles' Book Soup

              
Carla Harvey, one half of the female-fronted duo that screams for the BUTCHER BABIES, will be releasing her upcoming novel, Death and Other Dances, on August 25 in select bookstores, as well as Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Kindle. This semi-autobiographical work tells the story of Autumn Franklin - an awkward, biracial Detroit native - that is disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background. When Autumn's young parents divorce, she becomes even more withdrawn, yet survives the cards that she's been dealt by relocating to the alluring City of Angels, where she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between a drastic career change: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.

To read an excerpt from Death and Other Dances, head over to Revolver Mag.com for the exclusive sneak peek: http://www.revolvermag.com/?p=64873

In anticipation of her novel's release, Carla Harvey will appear at Los Angeles' Book Soup for a signing and reading on August 28th at 7PM. For full event details, please visit:

GWAR to Embark Upon the "GWAR Eternal Tour 2014"


 

Oderus is missing. Once the Scumdogs in GWAR finally notice this (it takes them a while to notice stuff) they will set off on a journey to find their departed brother using every resource available - including recruiting an ancient Scumdog warrior. GWAR will need the help from everyone, even the lowliest Bohab, as their enemies are plotting to take advantage of the hole in GWAR's ranks. 

 

BalSac The Jaws of Death on The "GWAR Eternal Tour 2014" and what to expect:

 

"Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny's final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader's favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: 'Where is Oderus Urungus?'"

 

GWAR fans have been mourning the loss of Dave Brockie, GWAR's founder and lead singer, since March. The "GWAR Eternal Tour 2014" gives them an opportunity to gather and share a bunch of feels as a community while experiencing the sickest band in this or any other world. 

 

Jamison Land, Beefcake the Mighty's personal slave and bass tech:

 

"Dave was our friend and anchor for as far back as anyone can remember.  He's held us together, and sometimes he drove us apart.  He is our brother and we love him. Unlike a lot of prominent musicians, he was friends with all of the fans. He made GWAR fans feel special on a personal level.  The fans love Dave as much as we do and 'The GWAR Eternal Tour 2014' is our way of getting together and sharing that love."

 

The first leg of the tour will include direct support from Decapitated; the second leg will have direct support from Corrosion of Conformity.  American Sharks will open all shows.  The tour kicks off October 15th in Norfolk, VA and runs through December 13th in Baltimore, MD.  A complete list of dates can be found below.  Tickets go on sale this weekend.

ANTHRAX'S CHARLIE BENANTE
TAKES THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE
LOS ANGELES, CA - Tuesday August 19, 2014 -- Last night, when Anthrax headlined the Rock Al Parquet 2014 Festival in Bogota, Colombia, the band's drummer Charlie Benate took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - in front of more than 140,000 screaming fans.  (see video below)

Mike Portnoy had challenged Charlie, and he accepted, in large part because Mike Wright, the father of his friend Brandon Wright, has had ALS for 10 years - so this was personal.

Bandmates Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello did the dousing, and afterwards Charlie nominated Philip H. Anselmo, Sepultura's Andreas Kisser and music producer Jay Ruston, who produced Anthrax' Worship Music, named Album of the Year in countless media outlets.

Anthrax's live DVD, "Chile On Hell," will be released on September 16 (Megaforce).

TED NUGENT

WRAPS UP SUMMER “SHUTUP&JAM!” TOUR
--WHICH INCLUDED REACHING THE 6,500TH LIVE SHOW MARK--
WITH AN INSPIRING SOLD-OUT CONCERT
BENEFITTING THE ‘SHOW OF SUPPORT MEMORIAL’ FOR OUR TROOPS

Midland, TX – Multi-platinum guitar icon TED NUGENT rocked the house this past weekend (8/17) with a bombastic set in Midland, Texas, wrapping up his summer SHUTUP&JAM! Tour, named after his latest full-length album SHUTUP&JAM! on Frontiers Records. NUGENT was in top form for the sold-out gig, benefitting the Show of Support Memorial for our troops.

“Show of Support was honored to have Ted and his band help us kick off our campaign to construct a memorial to honor those who have fought in this Global War on Terror and also to memorialize the four heroes we lost on 11-15-12,” stated show organizer Terry Johnson. “Ted brought a message of support for all who serve, and a call out to everyone in our sold out, packed audience to stand up for America.”

Throughout the summer, NUGENT’s 35-date SHUTUP&JAM! tour has garnered glowing reviews for live performances at venues across the country and on July 19in Detroit, Nugent performed his 6,500th gig.


Here are reviews about the tour and album:

“…[with] Shutup&Jam, Uncle Ted has delivered an appealing…modest record full of catchy guitar riffs...Combine…the overall high songwriting and performance quality on Shutup&Jam and guess what? Ted Nugent’s new album not only satisfies, it…leaves us wanting more!”

ShutUp&Jam!, his first set of new tunes in seven years, hits the vintage Gonzo mark with tightened songwriting (light on but not devoid of political screeds) and, of course, plenty of fleet-fingered guitar heroics…Nugent stretches out on the punky (yes, punky) ‘Never Stop Believing,’ while the relative brevity he demonstrates on the rest of the album serves him well.”                                                                            
               --Gary Graff,
THEOAKLANDPRESS.COM, July 7, 2014

“…it was a kick-ass collection of tracks that impressed me...You just get song after song of his intensive guitar playing and probably some of the best vocals that he has done on any album.” (4 ½ out of 5 album review)
               -- Rick Ecker,
NEWNOISEMAGAZINE.COM, March 17, 2014

“The one and only Ted Nugent—shredder extraordinaire, multi-platinum-selling music legend, balls-to-the-wall performer—proved once again…that he is all those things and so much more, and that his stage show, musical skills and inimitable, irrepressible, outrageous style make him nothing less than a force of nature.”
               --Lara Dean,
FLASHWOUNDS.COM, July 23, 2014


“Together with his killer band made up of Derek St. Holmes (guitar/vocals), Greg Smith (bass) and Mick Brown (drums) Nugent infused the senses with an arsenal of material…channeling the same blues masters that inspired his own guitar prowess, while continuing to wave the flag for a love of God and country.”
               --James Wood,
EXAMINER.COM (Allentown, PA), June 29, 2014

DANKO JONES Releases Long Awaited Live Album – ”Live At Gröna Lund”

 

Danko Live at Gröna Lund

 

DANKO JONES is happy to announce the release of their first official live album exclusively through Spotify! Listen to the album here: spoti.fi/1kw9wZb 

With close to 20 years of touring experience and a reputation as one of the best live bands in the world it would have been wrong not to at least try and capture the energy of the DANKO JONES live show on tape with the recording taken from their only show in Europe this year – at the legendary Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden on May 16th. Their relation to Sweden has always been a special one and has resulted in countless shows, two gold singles and top ten album chart positions, so for this show to be the pick for a live album seems only natural.

The album contains 20 tracks of classic songs from their live reportoire and ends with ”Bring On The Mountain” – a song everyone who has ever attended a DANKO JONES concert will be familiar with – that is now being made available as a recording for the very first time.

The band is currently finishing up a new studio album and will do a string of festival dates in Canada this fall along with an exclusive US show at Motörhead’s Motörboat along with Megadeth, Anthrax and of course the hosts themselves!

The Webster Theater - Hartford, CT

 

Tickets for TNT FEST 2014 are on sale now at THIS LOCATION.

Thursday August 28, 2014:

Pre-party with Judge Dread Memorial, and dance party with DJs Brass City Boss Sound's Peter Morcey and Sheer Terror's Paul Bearer.

 

So you thought Judge Dread was dead? Not in our hearts or turntables and probably not in yours either. On Thursday August 28th, 2014, at the TNT Fest Pre-party at The Webster Underground, direct from Holland, The Prince of Rudeness will be making his debut on US soil and teaming up with New Jersey's Hub City Stompers to play Judge Dread's biggest hits "Big Six", "Big Eight", "When We Were Skins", "Ska Fever" and more. Liquor will flow and 45s will spin Skinhead Reggae, Boot Power Rock N Roll, Oi! Chartbusters, Northern Soul Stompers and Junkshop Glam by the BCBS DJs. We have also added to this steel-toed kick, direct from Germany and out of the ashes of Oxymoron, Sucker's Bad Co.Project. They will be paying a rare set of Oxymoron material. Bad Co. Project will also perform Saturday night.

 

Friday August 29, 2014:

X, Bad Co. Project doing an Oxymoron set, Negative Approach, Defiance, Thulsa Doom, Hub City Stompers, Drug Shock

 

On Friday, August 29, 2014 on The Webster Theater's main stage, LA Punk legends, X, will conjure the ghosts of Decline Of Western Civilization by playing 1980's greatest debut record Los Angeles from start to finish. "Your Phone's Off the Hook, But You're Not", "Johnny Hit and Run Paulene", "Nausea" and "Sex and Dying in High Society" are just four of the nine flawless tracks on this record that changed the lives of many. Encompassing what TNT Fest is all about, X provides high energy, non-apologetic rock and roll. Directly supporting X comes Negative Approach- one of the greatest hardcore bands to still be playing. John Brannon & Co own more demons than any ten new hardcore bands combined. Negative Approach was a crowd favorite on the main stage in 2012 and we are pleased to have them back. Seminal Portland anarcho street-punk band Defiance has reunited with its five original members to play songs from their first two singles and album. Mike Arrogant, Alaric Brown, Kelly Halliburton, Tony Mengis, and Eric Niff will playing their first and only East Coast show in 2014. TNT diehards Hub City Stompers, Victory and Drug Shock will kick off the festivities so get there early!

Judge, Cro-Mags, Wisdom In Chains, Bad Co. Project, Patriot, Lenny Lashley, Traditionals, Hard Evidence, Panzerbastard, Broken Heroes, Duffy's Cut, Tailgunner, Damn Garrison, No Resistance, Justice Blocc

 

On Saturday August 30, 2014, Judge returns to CT for the first time since the salad days of the Anthrax to play The Webster Theater's main stage. After tearing up This Is Hardcore and Black and Blue Bowl last year we can guarantee that the band has never sounded heavier or meaner. We will never have Blitz play TNT (RIP Nidge Miller) so enjoy the much-loved cover of "Warriors" that was responsible for turning a lot of American hardcore youth onto Blitz. Saturday's main stage lineup could be our most stacked lineup in the history of TNT. NYHC legends Cro-Mags will be playing the entire Age Of Quarrel record which was recently re-released on 180 gram vinyl by Brass City Boss Sounds. Wisdom In Chains makes their long awaited TNT debut while Patriot and The Traditionals return. Ex-Oxymoron punk madman Sucker's Bad Co. Project make their US debut. Hard Evidence and PanzerBastard make their debut on the mainstage this night as well. Saturday afternoon in The Webster Theater's Underground you can find TNT favorites Broken Heroes, Duffy's Cut, Tailgunner (representing Canadian Oi!), Damn Garrison (featuring Richie from The Bruisers), No Resistance and Justice Blocc.

 

Sunday August 31, 2014:

Jook, Sheer Terror, The Ejected, The Templars, Stars and Stripes, Limecell, Sydney Ducks, Lion's Law, Yellow Stitches, Chosen Ones, 45 Adapters, Bloodshoot Hooligans

 

On Sunday August 31, 2014, Jook will take The Webster Theater's main stage for their first US show ever. Jook, the 1970s underground glam sensation, is credited to as an inspiration of mainstream acts like the Bay City Rollers and features members of the more-well known band Sparks. It still doesn't seem real but we have all three living Jook members together playing all of their singles which are favorites in heavy rotation at all BCBS DJ nights. "Alright With Me", "Oo-Oo-Rudi" "Bish Bash Bosh", Crazy Kids", Aggravation Place", "Different Class" and "Movin' In The Right Direction" are a few songs you will hear. Preceding the main event, our favorite East End Kids, The Ejected are playing all hits. This will be their first US show ever and the only one this year. Sheer Terror will make their TNT debut playing their ugly and proud classic anthems along with songs from their new LP Standing Up For Falling Down. You may even get a Sham cover from their great new Kaos for Kristin EP and you will definitely get a smile from the Rev's famous stage banter. Stars and Stripes will be playing songs from their upcoming BCBS LP and The Templars finally return to TNT. A number of bands from all over the world will join us on the main stage as well, including Limecell from Philadelphia, Lion's Law from France, Sydney Ducks from San Francisco and Chosen Ones from Buffalo. 45 Adapters will play followed by Brass City Boss Sounds' very own Yellow Stitches (Sick Mind 45 release party), ensuring to turn Hartford into a New Hampshire style pizza and beer massacre. Connecticut Oi! band Bloodshot Hooligans kick off the final day and will treat your hangover with the hair of the dog. This will be Bloodshot's final show so don't sleep.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY To Kick Off West Coast Tour;
Blind Inducted Into The Decibel Magazine Hall Of Fame

 

 

Following their recent stomp through New Zealand and Australia, North Carolina crossover legends, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, are readying to kick off a short run of West Coast live assaults. The near two-week trek will commence tomorrow in Spokane, and come to a close in Vancouver on September 1st. The band will be joined by Bl'ast!, Brant Bjork & The Low Desert Punk Band and Lord Dying!


CORROSION OF CONFORMITY
will be touring in support of their fittingly titled IX full-length released last month via Candlelight Records. Dubbed "a triumph" by The Obelisk, IX was captured by the band alongside longtime friend and colleague John Custer. Clocking in at nearly forty-five minutes, the record offers up the groove-laden sludge/doom/punk concoction fans have come to expect from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. The Onion's A.V. Club champions the band's "...smoke-wreathed grooves and sludgy rushes of belligerence," furthering that, "the album is a meat-and-potatoes feast," Rock Revolt notes, "...this album contains the vital elements to satisfy the most fervid CORROSION OF CONFORMITY fan," Decibel Magazine elaborates, "COC stick to the recipe that served them well on both 2012's self-titled reboot and the follow-up EP, Megalodon: A little hardcore, a little crossover, a whole lotta Southern rock and (especially) doom metal, all stirred, shuffled, layered and frosted in ways that make guessing their next move impossible. But the band's strategies are more expansive this time out, their tricks more finely woven into the fabric of each song," while The Sludgelord adds, "not only does IX deliver what we hoped for, but they surpass that with an unwavering confidence - the sparks are flying on this one." If you missed it, check out the lyric video for "Tarquinius Superbus" at THIS LOCATION.

In related news, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's seminal Blind full-length was recently inducted into the Decibel Magazine Hall Of Fame! Check out the piece in the September 2014 issue available for purchase at THIS LOCATION

Grammy Award Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Guitarist
SLASH

Strikes a Chord at Universal Studios Hollywood, Composing First-Ever Original Score
for Theme Park’s Gripping New “Halloween Horror Nights” Maze
“Clowns 3D Music by SLASH”

 

Universal City, CA, August 14, 2014 – Celebrated Grammy® Award-winning musician, SLASH, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the theme park’s hypnotizing new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” at “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 19, 2014.

While partnering with top recording artists has become a signature of “Halloween Horror Nights,” this collaboration with prolific guitarist, SLASH, marks the first time a musician has created an original maze score for the popular event.  This inspired effort comes at a demanding time for SLASH, whose new album World on Fire debuts on September 16, 2014, on the heels of his “Let Rock Rule” World Tour performing with Aerosmith.

Infused with the rocker’s hell-raising electric guitar riffs, the ominous new “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” haunted attraction is no laughing matter as it unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.  

The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through “Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,” a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction. 

“I’m a HUGE fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror,” said SLASH.  “I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze.  I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”

“It’s an honor to collaborate with one of the most iconic rock legends around,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.”  “From the moment I heard SLASH’s original composition for the maze, I immediately knew he got it, as the vibe and feel of his score are so right on. He captured the exact tone we were looking to convey to our guests, and it’s great having SLASH be a part of this incredible event.”

SLASH has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a GRAMMY Award and seven GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Time magazine named SLASH #2, behind Jimi Hendrix, on its “The Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time” list. SLASH helped create signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim with SLASH’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet RevolverSLASH’s self-titled biography critically well-received, climbed the bestseller list in both the U.S. and U.K. hitting #8 on the NY Times Bestsellers List. SLASH landed on the top of the charts with his first solo album, Slash (2010) which featured Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and more. SLASH and his band featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators released the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012) which stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #4 as the top rock debut and produced his first-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH released Nothing Left To Fear (2013) the first-ever motion picture he co-produced from Slasher Films, his film/TV production company. SLASH and his band will release their new album WORLD ON FIRE September 16, 2014www.slashonline.com.

 “Halloween Horror Nights 2014 at Universal Studios Hollywood will be “More Dead Than Ever,” as it brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures in existence. This year’s event will feature a slate of all-new unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience, uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, including, “The Walking Dead:  The End of the Line,” based on AMC’s critically-acclaimed, Golden Globe®-nominated and Emmy® Award-winning television series; “From Dusk Till Dawn,” inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s cult film and El Rey network’s TV series; “Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood,” based on Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic action-adventure; “AVP:  Alien vs. Predator,” based on the Twentieth Century Fox film franchise; “An American Werewolf in London,” based Universal Pictures’ Academy Award®-winning and genre-defining film, written and directed by John Landis; “Face Off:  In the Flesh,” based on Syfy’s hit TV series, and “The Purge: Anarchy,” a new scare zone inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster thriller.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
EXCEED FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR “5FDP4VETS–NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND” CAMPAIGN BY DOUBLE IN ONE DAY

RIVETING MUSIC VIDEO FOR “WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN” SURPASSES 500,000 VIEWS SINCE MONDAY PREMIERE

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH delivered an important message to the world earlier this week with their riveting music video for the new single, “Wrong Side of Heaven.”

The music video evinces the jaw-dropping and stunning statistics of returning veterans afflicted and living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Watch the clip here: http://vevo.ly/wM96O1. In order to raise awareness, the multi-platinum-selling worldwide rock juggernaut didn’t simply talk about the issue--they also went and did something about it…

In tandem with the video’s premiere, the group ignited a special crowd-funding campaign for a jersey entitled 5FDP4VETS “No One Gets Left Behind” on Indiegogo. The campaign’s goal of raising $50,000 was bested by double in less than two day’s time--exceeding $100,000. The campaign continues to run and the proceeds will benefit organizations that joined forces with the group to raise awareness for veterans suffering from PTSD.

Fans who pledged will receive a limited-edition jersey created and designed by guitarist ZOLTAN BATHORY. The initial run of shirts ran out, and the band expanded it by 1,000 in order to keep up with the overwhelming demand.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH also hosted a special screening of their new video “Wrong Side Of Heaven” at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, showing their appreciation for the military up-close-and-personal this past Monday; watch the local news coverage of the event here: http://bit.ly/1rotjIv. The video has amassed over 500,000 views in less than 48 hours since it’s premiere on VEVO Monday, touching viewers everywhere with its poignant message.

In addition, the band launched the webpage www.5fdp4Vets.com. It sheds light on veterans afflicted with PTSD, their struggles, and offers a video call-to-action to fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones’ dog tags to build a memorial wall commemorating them. This memorial wall will be prominently featured on the band’s upcoming fall arena tour as their backdrop. Once the tour concludes, the proper museum will be sought out to showcase this memorial to the fallen heroes who gave their lives serving our country.

Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful rock bands globally, 5FDP dominated 2013 with the releases THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELLVOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (“Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest and “Battle Born”) and have combined sales of over 650,000 units to date. The multi-million selling rock titans’ last single, “House Of The Rising Sun” was their 13thconsecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio.

USA TODAY proclaimed: “VOLUME 2 elevates the group to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there's certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album's title--aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences” (11/19/13). Following Australia’s Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band concluded a sold out European headlining tour earlier this year. 

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass).

PIERCE THE VEIL RECORDING NEW ALBUM
FOR 2015 RELEASE
Band will Support New Music With 21 Date U.S. Tour,
Co-headlining with Sleeping With Sirens

"Rock's next superstars." - Kerrang!
LOS ANGELES, CA - (Thursday, August 14, 2014) -- Pierce the Veil, who rocketed to success with their 2012 release Collide With The Sky, have been sequestered at Dan Korneff's Sonic Deris Recording Studio in New York writing and recording a brand new album due for a January 2015 release on Fearless Records.  As yet untitled, the highly-anticipated release is being produced by Korneff (A Day To Remember, Paramore) who worked with the band on Collide.
At Sonic Deres Studio, L-R:  Jaime Preciado, Vic Fuentes, Mike Fuentes, Tony Perry
Vocalist Vic Fuentes began working on ideas as early as late last year and began writing new material in earnest this Spring.  He and the band - Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) - started preproduction in May in their newly-renovated San Diego home studio.  In June, with 11 songs written, the band headed to New York to begin recording; nine of those songs are earmarked for the new album, and the band has written two more since.   

Said Vic about the sessions, "We try to stay focused on writing and recording songs that we're happy with, that we like, songs that will be fun to play live and that our fans will want to sing along with, songs that offer a little something different, but are all still very much PTV songs."  

The past two years have been a whirlwind for Pierce the Veil.  On July 22, 2012, Collide With The Sky debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart as well as #1 on the Top Hard Rock chart, the Top Modern Rock chart, the Top Alternative Albums chart, and the Top Rock Albums chart.  MTV named the band a Buzzworthy Breakthrough Artist, and to date, Collide has sold nearly a quarter-million copies in the U.S. alone.  That same year, PTV performed on the Main Stage for the entire Vans Warped Tour, then headlined the sold out, 34-major market date "Collide With the Sky" U.S. tour.  In 2013, they co-headlined (with All Time Low) the sold out "Spring Fever" North American tour, and then played a massive run with A Day To Remember.  PTV went on to sweep the Alternative Press Readers Poll, taking awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Live Band of the Year, Cover Art of the Year, Music Video of the Year (for "King For A Day" which has racked up an astounding 32-million YouTube views), Best Band Merch, Best Drummer and Best Bassist of the Year.  "King For A Day" was awarded "Best Video of the Year" at the Kerrang! Awards, and earlier this year, the band's critically-acclaimed documentary, "This is a Wasteland," picked up a Revolver Golden God statue for Best Film & Video.  Most recently, PTV received seven nominations at the first annual Alternative Press Music Awards, taking home three "Skullys" - the most wins for the night - for Best Bassist, Best Drummer, and Song of the Year (All Time Low's "A Love Like War" with Vic on vocals).

Leading up to the new album's release, PTV will co-headline 21 U.S. dates, the first leg of "The World Tour," a  five-month, multi-leg global trek, with Sleeping with Sirens.  Confirmed dates for the first leg are below.

HALCYON WAY Premiere First In-Studio Video From Conquer Recording Sessions

 

NASHVILLE CD Release party August 16th, 2014 at The Rutledge; ATLANTA CD Release Party August 23rd, 2014 at The 120 Tavern

 

Conquer Available August 19th in North America on Nightmare Records

And September 19th in Europe via Massacre Records

Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY will release their new album Conquer, on August 19th in North America via Nightmare Records, and on September 19th in Europe/Rest Of World via Massacre Records.  The album can be pre-ordered on the band's website HERE and on Amazon.

 

During the recording of Conquer, the band filmed a series of in-studio videos documenting the process.  Today HALCYON WAY presents the first video in the series.  It can be viewed HERE.

 

Guitarist Jon Bodan on the first in-studio video:

 

"You're about to watch the first in a series of behind-the-scenes footage during the Conquer recording sessions.  This first one is when we tracked the drums at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany with Lasse Lammert.  We ate kebabs, indian food, made some music, and generally made the air in the studios unbreathable.  We also dressed Lasse up in a horse costume.  We hope you enjoy!"

 

GuitarWorld.com is currently streaming the song the "World Comes Undone" HERE.

 

The band recently completed work on a lyric video for the song "Home".  It can be viewed HERE.  In addition the video for the song "Web of Lies" from the new album can be viewed HERE.

 

HALCYON WAY have announced two CD release parties, the first is scheduled for August 16, 2014 in Nashville, TN, and the second is set for August 23, 2014 in Atlanta, GA. 

 

Tickets for the events can be purchased at www.halcyonway.com/tickets

 

HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album "A Manifesto For Domination" in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).  That was followed up by the critically acclaimed "Building The Towers" in 2010, and the sequel to that release, "IndoctriNation", was released in 2011.

 

The band toured relentlessly over the last few years, going out with Fozzy in the UK, Delain for a full European tour, and North American tours with U.D.O., Saxon, and Fates Warning. 

 

HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft.  The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira.  The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King's X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.

 

Conquer Track Listing:

1. Conquer

2. Web Of Lies

3. Conceived In Torment

4. Home

5. World Comes Undone

6. Militant

7. Hatred Is My Cause

8. The Poisoned Apple

9. Save Your Tears

10. Every Second Counts (USA Bonus Track)

11. King Of Ruin

12. Eviscerate The Morning Sun

•Must have great stage presence and be willing to dress the part and conform to the band's overall image. Just sounding / performing great isn't enough.

GOATWHORE Wraps Up Summer Slaughter 2014
Headlining Takeovers Commence + Band To Support Samhain On Select Dates

 


Following a near month-long run of live debauchery on this year's edition of the Summer Slaughter tour, today New Orleans' favorite metal horde/perpetual road hounds, GOATWHORE, kick off a short bout of headlining takeovers through Pittsburgh, Newport, and Poughkeepsie before making a special appearance at this year's Gwar B-Q on August 16th. The band will take a short break before going roadbound again in September supporting death rock/horror punk icons Samhain on select dates. Additionally, GOATWHORE will make their way to Europe this Fall/Winter with headliners Dying Fetus. Set to commence on November 8th in Liege, Belgium, the epic journey will trample its way through nearly four dozen metropolises, coming to a close on December 20th in Leer, Germany. Additional support will be provided by Malevolence and Fallujah.  
 

GOATWHORE is currently touring in support of their Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length, an infernal masterpiece which debuted at #81 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, toppling their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master. Constricting Rage Of The Merciless also ranked in at #21 on Billboard's Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart and #13 on the Independent chart! 

 

Earlier this Summer GOATWHORE unveiled their ripping new video for third Constricting Rage Of The Merciless hymn, "Baring Teeth For Revolt." Shot at the infamous House Of Shock in New Orleans by lauded videographer David Brodsky of My Good Eye (Hell Yeah, Whitechapel, Cannibal Corpse, Municipal Waste et al), the clip is an audio/visual hailstorm of bludgeoning live energy. View "Baring Teeth For Revolt" at THIS LOCATION.

Crowned "...a blasphemous blast..." by Decibel Magazine, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is
at once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Captured at Mana Recording Studios with Erik Rutan at the helm, the record invokes the tar-thick, battle-ready tone and vitality of GOATWHORE's molten onstage attack in a way previous releases have not and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and media globally. Sputnik Music gushes "[GOATWHORE] deserve a ton of credit for grinding along for so long making blackened death/thrash metal with the same level of ferocity, enthusiasm and New Orleans grit as they were on their 2000 debut The Eclipses Of Ages Into Black
... one of extreme metal's most unheralded, blue-collar bands," Metal Injection christens it, "the new high water mark of the group's work thus far," while Exclaim concludes, "GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering in no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence." Elsewhere Invisible Oranges calls Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, "a fucking solid release and one wild ride down the highway to Hell," Dead Rhetoric applauds the band's "masterful work of extreme metal," while Pop Matters adds fittingly, "a brutally bleak aural onslaught that will no doubt get metal heads pumping their fists and headbanging along with these pummeling anthems of chaos and despair. Clear heirs to the thrash metal throne, GOATWHORE ably step up with this masterful slab of blacked metal and stake their claim as one of the best in the business...

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER vocalist Trevor Strnad adds: "We are very excited to finally be able to let the big secret out... our final US tour on the Everblack album will be with none other than California titans SUICIDE SILENCE.

We are extremely glad they've chosen to persevere all of the hardship and tragedy and we are proud to call them tour mates and friends. The magic 8 Ball says we're going to party our asses off together and have an awesome, successful tour. Cheers to SUICIDE SILENCE and we'll see you all in October!"

 FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
LAUNCH NEW VIDEO FOR “WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN”
WITH EXCLUSIVE GLOBAL PREMIERE ON VEVO

VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS STAGGERING FACTS ABOUT VETERANS SUFFERING FROM
POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD), TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) DEPRESSION AND HOMELESSNESS

BAND PARTNERS WITH VARIOUS VETERAN SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
TO RAISE AWARENESS AND SUPPORT FOR THE CAUSE,
LAUNCHES WEBPAGE www.5fdp4Vets.com

5FDP TO PAY RESPECT TO FALLEN HEROES WITH MEMORIAL DURING
NORTH AMERICAN FALL ARENA TOUR KICKING OFF SEPTEMBER 16

 

 
 
 

“We wanted to do something impactful to help our veterans in need.
With this video and the accompanying campaign we hope to shed more light on the seriousness of their issues. The statistics are shocking, and if any change is to take place it will start with general public awareness. We have been playing numerous military shows but wanted to do more; educate, reach out and donate to the organizations that are making a difference to better the lives of our veterans.”
--FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH

Global rock heavyweights FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have enjoyed tremendous support from their military fans over the years and have decided to give back to veterans and those suffering from PTSD with the video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven” which exclusively premiered today globally on VEVO and can be watched here: http://vevo.ly/wM96O1.

The video, written by the band and directed by Nick Peterson is intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its larger repercussions for our country by way of affecting their mental and physical health, family life, assimilation back home after service and garnering quality job placement, among many other issues.

 

“Incredibly touching, I watched with a lump in my throat the entire time. Five Finger Death Punch’s support of US Troops and Military Veterans never ceases to amaze me.”
-- Angel Orozco, former U.S. Marine Corps Corporal
Broadcaster at The American Forces Network (AFN)

5FDP have partnered with a multitude of national and local veterans and PTSD help organizations, contact info for which runs at the end of the video for “Wrong Side Of Heaven” and is also available at www.5fdp4Vets.com. The band created this website to provide a destination with more info on veterans affected by PTSD, the issues they’re facing and also to host a video-call-to-action to their fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones’ dog tags to create a memorial wall to commemorate them. The memorial will travel with the band across North America to be the backdrop of the show on their upcoming arena fall tour (dates below). Post-tour, the dog tag memorial wall will ultimately find a permanent home in a museum to honor the fallen heroes who gave their life while serving our country.

5FDP have also designed a special, limited edition “No One Gets Left Behind” jersey which will be available exclusively via an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to benefit the various help organizations mentioned at the end of the video. For more info on the memorial wall, mailing address for dog tags and how to participate in the campaign for the jersey, go to: www.5fdp4Vets.com

Coinciding with the launch of the new video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven,” members of the group are visiting Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada today to meet with 400 Airmen for a signing, video screening and to talk about the campaign. Those affected by PTSD, both directly and indirectly, are encouraged to share their stories online using the hashtag #5fdp4Vets.

 

"The 'Wrong Side Of Heaven' video is very compelling and moving to watch.
It reminds each and every one of us of the sacrifices these men and women have made 
and the struggles they continue to face every day."
-- Erik Gloege, THE BOOT CAMPAIGN, www.bootcampaign.com

 

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH are scheduled to kick off the biggest rock tour of the fall co-headlining arenas across North America with VOLBEAT on September 16 at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, UT. The tour is produced by Frank Productions/NS2. Special guest HELLYEAH will be direct support with NOTHING MORE opening. For tickets go to www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/tour.
5FDP VIP packages are available at:
http://bit.ly/Rm0eBh

Following on the heels of the launch for Wrong Side Of Heaven,” Hal Leonard will release a brand new FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitar tab folio tomorrow, 8/12. The book features a dozen cuts from the band’s current hit albums THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. It can be ordered here: http://bit.ly/1ukfKeY

Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful rock bands globally, 5FDP dominated 2013 with the releases THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (“Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest and “Battle Born”) and have combined sales of over 650,000 units to date. The multi-million selling rock titans’ last single, “The House Of The Rising Sun” was their 13th consecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio.

USA TODAY proclaimed “VOLUME 2 elevates the group to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there's certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album's title--aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences” (11/19/13). Following Australia’s Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band concluded a sold out European headlining tour earlier this year.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
is Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass).

MISS MAY I Unleashes Heavy-Hitting “You Want Me” Lyric Video via Loudwire

 

New Album “Rise Of The Lion” Out Now!

 

Touring NOW on the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival

 

Album Art

   

 

MISS MAY I is tearing up the U.S. touring circuit this summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in support of their new, Billboard-charting album, Rise Of The Lion. Today, the band is unleashing their brand new lyric video for “You Want Me”, exclusively with Loudwire! Check out the lyric video here: http://loudwire.com/miss-may-i-you-want-me-exclusive-lyric-video-premiere/

 

Frontman Levi Benton explains that the lyrics to ‘You Want Me’ were inspired by being overwhelmed by the expectancies of others, “‘You Want Me’ is one of the most personal songs on the new record. When I wrote this song, I was relating to the fans because, like them, I’m tired of being pushed around and tired of trying to live up to others expectations. I feel this video symbolizes how we push those people to the ground.”

 

MISS MAY I’s new album, Rise Of The Lion, is out now via Rise Records! Get your copy via iTunes here. Rise Of The Lion is MISS MAY I’s fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (PanteraDeftones, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon). Rise Of The Lion is inspired by the countless fan letters the band has received over the years.

 

As mentioned above, MISS MAY I is touring the country this summer, performing on the COLDCOCK American Herbal Flavored Whiskey Second Stage at the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem FestivalMISS MAY I joins multi-platinum headliners Avenged Sevenfold, as well as Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Suicide SilenceMushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition,  King 810, Body Count featuring Ice-T, Upon A Burning Body, Veil of Maya, Darkest Hour, Emmure, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, and Erimha. For more details visit www.rockstarmayhemfest.com and see below for a full listing of dates that MISS MAY I will be performing on.

*Lineups in each city may vary.  Go to www.rockstarmayhemfest.com for full lineup details.

 

 

After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs ‘Hey Mister’ and ‘Day By Day’. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes of Five Finger Death PunchKillswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.

The next day they raid Baltimore, Maryland for the Philly Crust Invasion with Alement, Repellers and Rukut, followed by a hometown gig three days later. Next Saturday, August 16th, DIE CHOKING joins the growing itinerary of bands now including Sete Star Sept from Japan and Tercer Mundo from Mexico to play at Really Awesome Super Fun Fest in Wilmington, Delaware.

RIVERS OF NIHIL Joins Death's (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp '14 North American Trek 

 

 

This November, Pennsylvania's RIVERS OF NIHIL will embark on the biggest tour of their career thus far as openers on Death's (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp '14 tour! Additional support will come from death metal legends Obituary and Massacre. The trek will commence on November 14th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California and wraps up on December 7th in Miami, Florida at Grand Central.

Comments guitarist Jon Kunz: "We're incredibly stoked to a part of this year's North American Death (DTA Tours)! Death are one of our biggest influences, with the incredible Human album being a constant source of inspiration. Throw in the nasty Tampa savagery of Obituary and Massacre, and you have the best death metal tour of the year. Long live Chuck [Schuldiner]. Florida death metal is supreme!"

Earlier this year, RIVERS OF NIHIL released a video for "Birth Of The Omnisavior," a sleek and dark clip that captures visually what this band does so well sonically: play emboldened, deftly-executed death metal at a level far beyond their years. Watch "Birth Of The Omnisavior" from their The Conscious Seed Of Light full length now at THIS LOCATION.

Formed in 2009, the modern progressive death metal quintet's music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron on which their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of death metal's heaviest, most abrasive hitters like Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession, and Decapitated. RIVERS OF NIHIL's debut album, The Conscious Seed Of Light, was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. While The Conscious Seed Of Light is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, RIVERS OF NIHIL began their project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year. Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates; "The Conscious Seed Of Light is intended to be representative of Spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album's broader concept."

ROB ZOMBIE Narrates ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL Puppy Rescue Mission PSA, Directed by Strati Hovartos

Puppy Rescue Mission – Allowing Afghanistan War Heroes to Match Companions with Homes

 

2014-08-06 20

Saiga, a dog rescued by The Puppy Rescue Mission, and her soldier friend

 

The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is deep-seated in U.S. military and veteran communities – avidly promoting programs like Metal of Honor, in conjunction with The Pathway Home (PTSD rehabilitation facility) and Hope For The Warriors (Military family assistance, veteran transition assistance, employment preparedness). In addition to these programs, the festival actively supports another great cause in conjunction with our troops: The Puppy Rescue Mission!

The Puppy Rescue Mission (“TPRM”) is the brainchild of president and founding member Anna Cannan. Anna’s idea for TPRM began when her fiancé, Chris, was deployed to and stationed in Afghanistan. TPRM’s primary mission is to help bring home the companions to our soldiers serving in a war zone. These companions already have homes waiting for them — they just need help getting there. TPRM believes that these beloved companions have at times not only physically saved our soldiers from harm but have also filled an emotional need for a sense of home and normalcy in a hostile and dangerous environment.

With the help of the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL, TPRM continues to make loving connections between rescue dogs and their companions! Recently, Los-Angeles based photographer and ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL documenter Strati Hovartos directed a heartfelt PSA, starring a cast of active duty and veteran warriors and narrated by Mayhem-alumni and world-renowned rocker Rob Zombie.

Last summer, Rob Zombie donated his incredible truck featured on History’s Counting Cars to TPRM. At the time, Rob Zombie stated, “… soldiers in Afghanistan would find these dogs and bond with them and sneak them on the bases, even though they weren’t supposed to have them.  It was probably the only moment of sanity for these guys, when they spent time with them….But they weren’t allowed to take them home, and if they could, it was so expensive. That was a cause I could really understand and get behind.”

Watch the PSA here: https://vimeo.com/m/102641607

Saiga, the dog featured in the PSA, is an actual rescue animal from the Afghanistan war zone adopted by festival producer John Reese and his family through TPRM. As a puppy of a dog befriended by a soldier serving in the Middle East, Saiga was brought to the US from Kabul, Afghanistan at four-and-a-half months old.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL producer John Reese states, “The sacrifices made by our men and women serving overseas are numerous. Having to leave a dog behind that one may become attached to is just another sacrifice that most of us aren't aware of. The work The Puppy Rescue Mission does is so important."

“A sincere thank you goes out to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL for their support and dedication in making these reunions possible,” states The Puppy Rescue Mission Founder and President, Anna Maria Cannan. “The bond between a soldier and his dog is truly unbreakable. Thousands of miles away from home, it is sometimes the one thing in the world that can bring a smile to their face.”

OBITUARY to Release Inked in Blood October 28th on Relapse Records

 

Artwork and Track Listing Revealed

 

"OBITUARY fall into that rare category of living legends who've still got the inimitable spark that made them so special in the first place - the agonized, pulverizing drone of their bludgeoning, unstoppable tank-tread rhythms is something no one else has been able to adequately copy in two decades of trying." 

-Blabbermouth-

Death metal legends OBITUARY make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in OBITUARY's already godlike discography.  Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records.  Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed.  Pre-orders for Inked in Blood will be available soon!

 

The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame.  OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog.  OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre!  Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!! 

 

The band is currently wrapping up a festival circuit in Europe and now OBITUARY have been confirmed as direct support for the upcoming "Death to All" Tour.  The tour kicks off November 14th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through December 7th in Miami, FL.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

DRAGONFORCE Premiere "Ring of Fire" Cover at the A.V. Club


 

New Album Maximum Overload Available August 19th

On Metal Blade Records

Frontman Marc Hudson's awe-inspiring voice is given plenty of room to soar, while the music incorporates riffs and tones from thrash and death metal, giving the songs a heaviness never present before.

4 Stars

- Alt Press-

DRAGONFORCE will release "Maximum Overload" in the US on August 19th via Metal Blade Records.  "Maximum Overload" is available for pre-order at metalblade.com/dragonforce, in CD, digital, and limited edition vinyl formats!  While there be sure to check out the band's new video for the song "The Game".

 

The album also features an all time first for DRAGONFORCE...a cover song! Guitarist Sam Totman explained: "Just before the last Australian tour, our manager suggested it might be interesting to do a cover for the next album, something we've always refused even to consider. Because we had all had a couple beers every band member wrote down 3 songs each and we compared them all, just for a laugh. I wrote down 'Ring Of Fire' by Johnny Cash, an idea which the rest of the band loved, so we've DRAGONFORCE-ized it"!

 

Today The A.V. Club is hosting an exclusive premiere of DragonForce's take on "Ring of Wire".  Check it out HERE.

 

The second single from "Maximum Overload", "Defenders" is streaming HERE.

Produced by Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios in Örebro and Varberg, Sweden, the new opus will be the band's first ever album involving an outside producer, having historically opted to record themselves in association with Karl Groom.  

"Working with Jens gave us a different perspective on the songs and a different sound dynamic. We always previously recorded in our own studios but recording in Sweden made us focus and maybe drove us harder, Jens certainly did, he doesn't believe in days off!" said guitar maestro Herman Li.

"Maximum Overload" features a couple of surprises, notably a guest appearance on some of the songs from Trivium's Matt Heafy. "We've always gotten on really well with the Trivium guys and it was great when Matt had a couple of days to spare and agreed to weigh in on some of the songs!" added bassist Frederic Leclercq.

DRAGONFORCE is:
Marc Hudson - Lead vocals
Herman Li - Guitar, backing vocals
Sam Totman - Guitar, backing vocals
Frédéric Leclercq - Bass, backing vocals
Vadim Pruzhanov - Keyboards, backing vocals
Gee Anzalone - Drums, backing vocals

MOB RULES Return to SPV/Steamhammer

 

 

 

Boxed Anniversary Set Timekeeper Scheduled For October 28th Release in North America

Northern German melodic metal band MOB RULES are back with Steamhammer/SPV. A few days ago the group, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, signed a new deal and are returning to the record company which already released and distributed five of their previous studio albums. "For us it's a great pleasure to have signed with Steamhammer," comments the band. "We're looking forward to the collaboration with Olly Hahn and his team, who supported us in both word and deed in the years between 1999 and 2008 and whose expertise we greatly value." Steamhammer's product manager Hahn is happy to return this compliment: "Mob Rules have been among the most significant and impressive German melodic metal acts. We're proud to have them back on our roster."

MOB RULES are set to launch the first result of this renewed worldwide cooperation, their 20th anniversary boxed set Timekeeper, on 13 October 2014 (Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014). Hahn: "It's not every day that such a top-quality product arrives at the stores. The package consists of a best-of CD, a bonus DVD, a bonus CD featuring new and rerecorded songs, brilliant cover numbers and other surprises, including renowned guest musicians." Steamhammer and Mob Rules will publish more details in the coming weeks, suffice it to say that their fans will be delighted.

The arrival of the boxed anniversary set will be supported by a number of anniversary shows with highlights such as the Break The Barriers festival in Wilhelmshaven (feat. Gamma Ray & Love.Might.Kill) and the Metal Hammer Paradise on the Baltic coast, among others.

“World On Fire” marks SLASH’s fastest-climbing song at radio ever; the album’s hell-raising first single hit the Top 10 this week. Listen to the song “World On Fire” HERE and watch the fun NSFW video HERE.

The WORLD ON FIRE disc marks SLASH’s third solo offering and second album with his official band The Conspirators which features MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass). For WORLD ON FIRE, SLASH and the band worked with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to create a powerful new turn for the band in 17 songs. WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits–his first-ever solo–with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.

STEVEN TYLER AND JOE PERRY’S

POWERFUL NEW VERSION OF AEROSMITH’S CLASSIC

DREAM ON,”

--AS HEARD ON ESPN’S BOSTON MARATHON SPECIAL--

AVAILABLE ON ITUNES

JULY 31, 2014

 

The world heard a new version of the AEROSMITH classic “Dream On” during the Spring 2014 premiere of ESPN’s award-winning news magazine show, E:60. Recorded in Los Angeles in early April, the song features Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, who are joined by the Southern California Children’s Chorus on this arrangement of “Dream On (Boston Strong 2014).” The track will be released today as a single via iTunes. In a powerful moment at last night’s AEROSMITH concert at The Forum, in Inglewood, CA the band surprised the audience by bringing the Southern California Children’s Chorus on stage to perform this special rendition of “Dream On (Boston Strong 2014).”

"The tragedy that took place during the Boston Marathon was unfathomable, but Boston is incredibly resilient and became even stronger. I am so honored to release this version of “Dream On” and to be able to have had the Southern California Children's Chorus perform with us last night was a beautiful moment, a true gift from up above," says Steven Tyler.

“The heinous act that took place during the Boston Marathon which shook not only the city but the world and touched us all demanded a positive response,” Joe Perry said.  “Boston Strong was that response and gave an example of our city’s inner strength. I would like to think that the strength of our performance on ‘Dream On’ last night with the Southern California Children’s Chorus in LA at the Forum was another rallying point for the goodness in all of us.”

“Dream On (Boston Strong 2014)” debuted Tuesday, April 15 on “E:60 Presents Dream On: Stories from Boston’s Strongest,” a special hour dedicated to the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.  The show presented five stories of survivors, narrated by celebrity voices of Boston At 2:49 PM, on April 15, 2013, as scores of spectators cheered on the Boston Marathon runners approaching the finish line, two hand-made bombs exploded.  In a split second, the lives of hundreds of people were forever changed. E:60 presented a special program remembering the lives lost and paying tribute to those who survived, their journeys of perseverance, courage, strength and love in the past twelve months.

In July, AEROSMITH embarked on this summer’s definitive rock experience, the LET ROCK RULE tour across North America with Slash. The tour kicked off Thursday, July 10 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, NY making stops in Boston, MA.
