I know I'm a month late to the party on this but 10 YEARS (as most of you know) are going to open for BREAKING BENJAMIN next Friday (10/2) at the Crossroads! I'm super stoked for this show as it's been a while since I've seen either of these bands. I chatted with Ryan "Tater" Johnson from the band (interview getting posted soon) and we talked about the new lyric video for the title track to their latest album "From Birth to Burial" and Holy F*ck is it intense!! Get your tickets for next Friday night's show HERE and enjoy the vid!
Yesterday was Biker's for Babies. I've been out to the Kansas Speedway numerous times for it before but have yet to ride. This was the year I did the run on my bike from Gail's Harley-Davidson and holy hell was it awesome!! Seeing all the folks along the ride, the posters from kids that have been touched directly from the March of Dimes and knowing I was part of something so large and amazing all I can say is Thank You to everyone that rode and donated! We made a huge difference yesterday, guys! So be proud of that!

There's a new Indiegogo campaign, THE HISTORY OF METAL & HORROR, being launched exploring the history of heavy metal and horror films! If you step back and look at characters on both sides of the artist spectrum you see they really do go hand-in-hand! From Frankenstein to Dracula, and Ozzy to Alice, there's no denying those that like the dark side of life typically like all that both genres offer. Peep the promo video and if you want to contribute CLICK HERE!
