Korn Say Full Album Shows Are Coming
In an interview with 93.3 WMMR Davis said: “On festivals we’re going to play the first album in its entirety. Once the 20th anniversary hits we’ll start doing it. We’re even going play Daddy – I said I would never do it, but I’m going to do it anyway. We’re going to do the complete album in its entirety then tag on some songs at the end of the show.”
David Bowie Releasing New Album Soon
Producer Tony Visconti told CNN “There’s gonna be another album, definitely … soon. I don’t think he’s gonna busk in the Tube … on the Underground. As far as a concert is concerned I have no idea. He clearly didn’t promote ‘The Next Day’ with a concert and whether he does for the next one I don’t know and I couldn’t predict that – it’s up to him. It’s whatever takes his fancy.”
Sammy Hagar Says “Hold Tight Redheads”
Sammy Hagar wrote: “Hold tight Redheads – I’m waiting for the dust to settle down in Cabo. “The military and government are in charge right now & once the town is a little more stable, I will figure out what to do to help. I want to thank all of you fans for your ideas and willingness to give and the best thing to do is just wait for now. Many of my friends, partners and employees that are in Cabo are doing all they can at the Cantina to help people.”
“In the meantime, I’m working on a place that can handle a gathering on short notice for Redheads who can’t be in Cabo. One big bash somewhere – I hate sitting home on my birthday. Thank you and stay tuned.”
Charm City Devils Streaming New Album “Battles”
Frontman John Allen had the following to say about the album: “Battles is about struggle – from small to large. It’s about perseverance, loss, and the hope of triumph.
“From the opening cut Tear It Apart, to the fading last note of Let It Go, the album speaks, lyrically, from the heart about tenaciousness from the start of life until the bitter end.”
Ben Craven Releases Critical Mass Part 2
Craven explains he’s trying a new business model so he can involve fans throughout the recording process. “This project is being driven by music industry commentators saying the album is dead. I agree it’s an endangered species, at least commercially.
“As a musician and a listener, I’m very attached to the concept of albums as coherent collections of songs and all the emotional ties we make with them. So for this album I’m trying a different business model where I can engage the audience at every step of the recording process, officially leak songs well before they’re finished, and hopefully even get paid!”
Freddie Mercury And Michael Jackson Duet
“Michael used to come see us a lot,” guitarist Brian May told Rolling Stone late last year. “He was a big big fan, especially of Freddie, and Freddie and Michael got on real real well. Michael was very impressed with our lighting rig, I remember. I can’t remember which tour it was. We had pods of lights that moved above the stage that had pilots in them.
“He said, ‘I’m stealing that,’ and sure enough on the ‘Victory’ tour they had something very similar. But Michael really was very fond of Freddie and sort’ve idolized him. Michael really felt he wanted to be a rock star.”
Meshuggah Release Trailer For Remastered I EP
Drummer Tomas Haake Had this to says about the reissue:
“The 21-minute madness that is the song I is something we’ve always been extremely proud of. It wasn’t written in the normal sense, but recorded without anything more than guidelines as to what style we wanted each part to have.”
Obituary Thank Fans For ‘Violence’
They said: “We always knew our fans were some of the most devoted fans on the planet and they proved it by stepping up, being a part of something new and supporting us.
“This was an amazing display of true fan support and we could not be more proud of everyone who helped raise the money to record this album.”
