Slipknot Released Their New Music Video For “The Devil In I”
“Under the words of men, something is tempting the father.
Where is your will, my friend? Insatiates never even bother.
You and I, wrong or right, traded a lie for the leverage.
In between the lens in light, you’re not what you seem.”
Rammstein Taking An Extended Break
Guitarist Kruspe says in an interview with TeamRock: “I think Rammstein can never be over. Those things develop their own chemistry, their own energy. Even if we said it would be over, it would never be over. If you’re asking me if we’re doing something right now, the answer is: ‘We’re taking time off.'”
The members continue to meet at least once a year and consider whether it’s time to start work on a follow-up to 2009 album Live Ist Fur Alle Da. “We met a couple of months ago an we were just talking,” Kruspe says. “We decided not to do anything at the moment, so we’ll meet up next year again.”

Iconic Rock Band Survivor Cancels September and October Tour Dates
Band and fans take time to mourn the tragic death of lead singer Jimi Jamison
In the wake of lead singer Jimi Jamison’s sudden death on August 31, Survivor has canceled the September and October dates of their fall 2014 tour. “We are devastated by this loss, we trust that our fans will understand our wanting to take some time to mourn and remember our brother,” said Dave Bickler, who, along with Frankie Sullivan, is an original member of the celebrated band formed in 1978. Tour organizers are working with host venues to re-schedule the canceled dates.
“I called him ‘Golden Throat’ and for good reason. Jim Jamison had a voice we will never forget. It was massive and huge and yet sweet and gentle. He was a loving soul and a brother to me in many ways. I will miss him greatly” said Sullivan
Jamison joined Survivor in 1984, some of the hit songs recorded by the band during that period include chart busters like “I Can’t Hold Back,” “High on You,” and “The Search is Over.”, from the “Vital Signs” album and “Burning Heart” from “Rocky IV.” In 2004 he was featured in the Emmy nominated Starbuck’s commercial that parodied their iconic hit, “Eye of the Tiger.”
2012 would delight Survivor fans around the nation, when they began touring with both Jamison and Bickler “It was an honor to share the stage with such a great talent and Jimi was one of the best vocalist in the business” said Billy Ozzello. “Even though he’s gone, he will continue to be with us in spirit”
Survivor’s fall tour begins again on November 13 in Hanover, MD.

Why Are U2 Giving Away Their New Album
Bono Explains , “Remember us? Pleased to announce myself, Edge, Adam and Larry have finally given birth to our new baby… Songs of Innocence. It’s been a while. We wanted to get it right for you/us. We just finished it last week and thanks to Apple and iTunes it’s with you today. That’s already amazing to me as it normally takes a few months to turn this stuff around.
“Part of the DNA of this band has always been the desire to get our music to as many people as possible. In the next 24 hours, over a half a billion people are going to have Songs of Innocence… should they choose to check it out. That is so exciting. People who haven’t heard our music, or weren’t remotely interested, might play us for the first time because we’re in their library. Country fans, hip hop afficionados from east LA, electro poppers from Seoul, Bhangra fans from New Delhi, Highlifers in Accra… might JUST be tempted to check us out, even for a moment. What a mind blowing, head scratching, 21st century situation. Over 500 million people… that’s a billion ears. And for the people out there who have no interest in checking us out, look at it this way… the blood, sweat and tears of some Irish guys are in your junk mail.
“You’ll have noticed the album is free to U2.com’ers from the band. It’s also free to everyone on iTunes thanks to Apple. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of our iPod commercial, they bought it as a gift to give to all their music customers. Free, but paid for. Because if no-one’s paying anything for it, we’re not sure “free” music is really that free. It usually comes at a cost to the art form and the artist… which has big implications, not for us in U2, but for future musicians and their music… all the songs that have yet to be written by the talents of the future… who need to make a living to write them.”
