Buckcherry are working on their latest album and offered not one but two video diaries of the process. The band provided an in-depth, keyhole look at the crafting of songs. They didn’t hide some of the frustrations and arguments that are a result of making music with other creative people. This footage makes you feel like part of the gang.
Otherwise’s video for ‘Soldiers’ opens with a poignant quote. The words “For the warriors who fight and die… so the rest of us may fight to live” scrolls on screen, and the rest of the ensuing black and white footage features shots of the people who work with their hands, who save lives, who wear uniforms, who wait tables, who fix things, who use stethoscopes and who are generally the threads making up the fabric of this great country of ours. With a twist, of course.
We’ve got good news if you’re a patient fan of blood and guts films, and bad news if you’re not. Philip Anselmo, a renowned horror hound who absolutely loves that film genre, will launch his first-ever Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, Texas. However, the festival, named after the singer’s label, is scheduled for October 2013.
Last week, Kittie posed a bit of a philosophical question to fans via their social media networks. The ladies asked if their supporters would be interested in seeing the band play its debut, 1999′s ‘Spit,’ which was easily their most commercially successful album to date, with the original lineup. Seems like a no brainer, right?
Lacuna Coil continue to issue personal updates informing fans of what’s going on in their world. The latest came in the form of a two-minute video courtesy of beautiful frontwoman Cristina Scabbia. The lovely singer filmed the clip while getting ready for a gig in Sardinia. She was sequestered in the bathroom while she shared some news about the band’s forthcoming Dark Legacy tour.
Just weeks after releasing the symphonically swirling ‘Requiem for the Indifferent,’ Dutch metal band Epica have parted ways with bassist Yves Huts. He had been a member of the band since the very beginning, but has decided that it is time to move on and follow a different career path that would not be sustainable if he were to remain a touring musician.
On Monday, March 26, it’ll have been 26 years since Guns N’ Roses signed with Geffen Records for a reported advance of $75,000 amid a fierce bidding war with other labels over their talents. The band obviously went on to become legendary and has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction looming next month. Still, former bassist Duff McKagan looked back at the old days, when the band was scratching and clawing its way to the top.
Don’t blink or you might miss something! Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst shared a 14-second video of guitarist Wes Borland riffing on his guitar. It’s incredibly short but it’s also an organic look at the band as it works on new material for its forthcoming debut for Cash Money after a long career on Interscope. It’s the right label digs for the band, since Durst and co. have been meshing rap and rock seamlessly for years. The formula has served the Bizkit well.
Southern California-based metal monsters Winds of Plague are currently busy writing their new album. They are certainly prolific, since they released ‘Against the World’ last April. The band plans to hit the studio before summer, which is sneaking up on us and will be here before you know it.
Everyone in the rock community is talking about the upcoming tour that Motley Crue and Kiss will embark on this summer. Billed simply as ‘The Tour,’ it’s going to be quite a spectacle, since both bands are known for “bringing it” in the live realm and having massive stage set ups. The bands did promise that each will be afforded ample opportunity to deliver two completely different, standalone shows, with Kiss frontman Paul Stanley declaring, “It’s not half-Motley, half-Kiss.” It’s full on for both — separate but equal.
In 2012, thanks to the wonders of studio technology and the digital age, most records can be made without the players even sitting in the same room together. It’s a shame, since jamming out and feeding off on another’s energy is one of the true, pure beauties of collaborating. Such was not the case for Slash‘s upcoming album ‘Apocalyptic Love.’ The guitarist reveals that the platter, which he dubs a “straight up rock ‘n’ roll record,’ was recorded the old-fashioned way.
