Nuevo la Musica Martes!

Greetings audiophiles & degenerates. The wily bastards who guide us to commit petty crimes and the women that love ‘em!
There’s much to talk about on this week’s rendition of New Music Tuesday or Nuevo la Musica Martes! 

As we did last time, I'll put together a random prize pack for one commentor below, about what's listed in this blog, to be given out next Tuesday the 2nd of September. 

 
Here’s what’s OUT today!!
 
AVENGED SEVENFOLD’s 10th Anniversary of “Waking the Fallen”! (Side note: Whilst working on this blog I am listening to this jam!)
 
MOTORHEAD reissues “Aftershock: Tour Edition”. Hopefully this means LEMMY’s coming along better and we’ll see the ole bugger out on the road… cause they’ve done none of that touring the edition is stating in the album title!
 
Miss CARLA HARVEY, of the BUTCHER BABIES, is putting forth a novel, “Death & Other Dances”. It was also reported yesterday that that they have something coming out in October & the new album will be out next year. The guys & gals of BB are working with producer LOGAN MADER, who’s spent time with 5FDP & DEVILDRIVER, and is expected to be released on CENTURY MEDIA
 
OPETH brings out a new album today with “Pale Communion”. DOM LAWSON a writer for THE GUARDIAN states this album is “an admirably coherent collection of songs that are as uncompromisingly intricate and strange as they are incisively melodic.” Yeah, what he said. I’m in!
 
Looks like a slew of METALLICA vinyl is out today! 
 
Here’s some info about what’s coming down the pike, who’s recording what, and when it’ll all see the light of day!
 
Yesterday brought forth the news that new SLIPKNOT will be titled; “.5: The Grey Chapter” & be available in your favorite (online) store October 21st! If you don’t understand the title; PAUL GREY - bassist SLIPKNOT - RIP May 24, 2010. Still no word on who the drummer is but I suspect we’ll learn it long before they’re in town the night before Thanksgiving with KORN at the Sprint Center! 
 
BUSH announced a follow up to 2011’s “The Sea of Memories” last week. “Man on the Run” will drop (also) on October 21st! Still haven’t caught BUSH in action, hopefully this means I shall! 
 
(This one’s for you ASSHOLE BOB) RUSH’s Master of Time & Space - NEIL PEART - has a new book looking to come out, also in October, on the 14th! “Far and Near: On Days Like These” is basically a follow-up to “Far and Away”. Given the rabid nature of RUSH fans I suspect this will be on the Best Seller List. 
 
DANZIG, no longer suing anyone as it was thrown out of court, is working on an ELVIS PRESLEY covers album expected in early 2015!

ALICE COOPER, as many of you know in 2015 he'll kick out a new covers album of tunes by his friends; THE DOORS, JIMI HENDRIX, JOHN LENNON & THE WHO with "four or five news songs" wrote just for that new album, will be kicking out "Raise the Dead - Live from Wacken" DVD + CD October 21st. Footage for this disc was recorded back in August of 2013. 
 
FAITH NO MORE’s twitter (@FaithNoMore) stated the following on 19 Aug 2014 at 5:15 PM “The Reunion is over; in 2015 things are going to change.” Given they played TWO new jams earlier this year, live after being on hiatus for a bit, one would assume we’re gonna hear a new disc from FNM! OYE!
 
BREAKING BENJAMIN has posted a teaser of BEN BURNLEY with an entire new band. No idea what it means. 
 
THE CULT’s BILLY DUFFY was quoted in CLASSIC ROCK mag, in talking about new music, that it’ll be, “more guitar heavy.” Looks like some songs have been worked on between him & IAN ASTBURY, now we just wait. 

As always, what am I missing???

N-N-New Music Tuesday!!

Well, I can't imagine this is one of those big, weird, crazy coincidences! GODSMACK drops their latest disc today, "1000HP", AND SIXX A.M. puts out their first single off their forthcoming album "Modern Vintage". It's no secret that SULLY & NIKKI don't care much for one another, so I'd guess that Sixx felt like stealing some of Smack's thunder today with the release of their latest tune. 

I could be wrong... but I doubt it. 

On Monday of this week we got new tunes from SLIPKNOT with "The Negative One" and - if you're keeping track at home - new tunes from LIMP BIZKIT with "Endless Slaughter". Have you heard either? Thoughts? 
 
Here's what's coming down the pike...

A-WAY has out "Stuck" where they worked with acclaimed producer NICK RASCULINECZ! Of course make sure you catch Cooper this Sunday at the SPRINT CENTER when he opens for MOTLEY CRUE! And Theory will be here, Sunday September 7th at THE MIDLAND, with special guests BLACK STONE CHERRY! 

GODSMACK, who will be here in September with the UPROAR TOUR, is already streaming their new album on iTunes. http://www.itunesradio.com/Godsmack. 

Lots of action, too, gonna be happening over the coming months!

As heard on air: Eddie Vedder drinks wine from a shoe!

While performing in Sweden, at the end of June, a fan tossed a Red Converse shoe on stage to be signed when Pearl Jam came out to do an encore. Frontman, Eddie Vedder, said he'd do one better. The rest is what happened....
