Given that Monday was Labor Day, and not much surfaced yesterday, I'm a day off on this blog about all the new jams out. However, much chatter was had about all the new music coming out later on this year! Canadian Rockers (P. Griffin "Canada Sucks") NICKLEBACK will be putting out their latest effort, "No Fixed Address" on November 4th. We've already got the first single in "Edge of a Revolution"
Depending on who you talk with ED KOWALCZYK got fired from/left the band LIVE in 2009. Shortly after CHRIS SHINN took over on vox duties playing various clubs, bars, State Fairs and even your backyard if you came up with enough cash. Now, it seems, LIVE are set to step back into new album territory with an October 28th release of "The Turn". A new single, video & tour dates are to be expected soon.
It's been 18 years since we heard anything new from FAITH NO MORE (June 3rd 1997's "Album of the Year") and the Rock Gods have heard the pleads and begging from fans the world-over as FNM shall return with a new disc in April of 2015. FAITH fans can have their hunger satisfied, briefly, in November when the band puts out a limited edition 7-inch single for RECORD STORE DAY'S BLACK FRIDAY event on the 28th. One of my favorite jams from FAITH NO MORE!
You, also, gotta love a band that can cover LIONEL RICHIE!
Just read the other day that POP EVIL will be reissuing a BEST BUY exclusive of their latest "Onyx" on the 23rd of this month. "Deal with the Devil" recorded at our ROCFEST (#ROCKFESTKC), an alternative version of "Beautiful", "Trenches" featuring DMC (of RUN DMC) and a sting mix of "Torn to Pieces" will be on the repackaged disc.
As mentioned in last week's WEEKLY ROCK WIND UP
** BUTCHER BABIES are putting out an EP of covers titled "Uncovered".
** ALL THAT REMAINS have wrapped up their latest work expected out late 2014/early 2015
** SLIPKNOT will put out their first offering sans PAUL GRAY & JOEY JORDINSON ".5 The Gray Chapter" on October 21st.
** IRON MAIDEN are putting out classic 80's vinyl reissues. The albums will be released in chronological order over a two-month period starting October 14th with "Iron Maiden", "Killers" & "The Number of the Beast". Then we'll see, October 28th, "Piece of Mind", "Powerslave", and "Live after Death" followed by "Somewhere in Time" and "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" on November 25th. There's also to be corresponding seven-inch singles with each release.
**SLAYER is in studio working on new material, hopefully, to be release in 2015 without DAVE LOMBARDO on drums and the first album without co-founder Jeff HANNEMAN on guitar.
** And according to AC/DC drummer PHIL RUDD it only took the band 10 days to record their new album. No release date has been given.
** I'd be remised if I didn't mention the lovable lads in PSYCHOSTICK are working on a new album. One that frontman RAWRB says is, "Probably my favorite album we've made yet."
