While there's not a lot to talk about today, there's a whole ass-ton of new stuff coming out later this month, season, and year!
Somehow last week I brainfarted and missed posting up the fact that STEEL PANTHER has a new disc coming out, “All You Can Eat”. They’ll be joining us at Rockfest 2014 where I suspect we’ll hear some new tunes from them.
GUNS N’ ROSES are putting out a 3D film, “Appetite for Democracy” in April. I’m seeing it will get a theatrical release as well as be on DVD & Blu-ray, of which there are four formats available.
FOO FIGHTERS drummer, TAYLOR HAWKINS, has a new project looking to unleash their debut on April 15th in THE BIRDS OF SATAN. And yes, he – DAVE GROHL – guests on it.
GLEN HUGHES & JASON BONHAM have teamed up again for another “Supergroup” known as CALIFORNIA BREED. Be on the lookout for their self-titled debut album in May. You may recall the previous band Hughes & Bonham were a part of in BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION.
Another psudeo-supergroup is putting their final touches on a debut album. KIMONO KULT, which features former RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist JOHN FRUSCIANTE & former MARS VOLTA guitarist OMAR RODRIGUEZ-LOPEZ, will drop their four-track EP “Hiding the Light” on March 4th, however you can stream it now here!
I wanted to put this up last week, but was afraid if I did I’d tip my hand on them making their first appearance at Rockfest THE PRETTY RECKLESS. Their latest work, “Going To Hell” will drop on March 18th!
Last & certainly not least; “Suicide Silence – Ending Is The Beginning: The Mitch Lucker Memorial Show” was released back in the middle of February and features a laundry list of those in the metal community who came out to reflect on the loss of their friend. CHAD GREY, MAX CAVALERA, and RANDY BLYTHE as well as many others show up for this.
Here's what's coming down the pike. As always, what am I missing?
