Your Weekly Rock Wind Up

When life gives you lemons, you add vodka and have a party!! 
My web monkey had to jet out of here today early, taking with him the only camera we need to film, so your WRWU is in print form today!! 
  • Here's to hoping for a quick & speedy recovery for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE drummer Justin Foley. He broke his collerbone in a bicycle accident and is replaced, for the time being, by AS I LAY DYING's Jordan Mancino. Catch KSE with LAMB OF GOD at the Midland November 1st. 
  • Seems the Rock Gods are slapping HINDER around quite a bit. First, frontman, Austin Winkler left for personal reasons - it has since been confirmed that his is back in rehab. Next, their tour bus gets in a wicked wreck over the weekend forcing most of the band to relax for the time being. They said they'll pick up where they left off August 10th. 
  • SOULFLY announced a new album coming out on October 4th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment with some noteable names on it. Neil Fallon of CLUTCH, Mitch Harris of NAPALM DEATH, and Jamie Hanks of I DECLARE WAR! 
  • JIMI HENDRIX biopic will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Andre 3000 stars as the late guitarist. Hendrix's estate is not behind this project and blocked the film makers from using any of Jimi's original tunes. 
  • ALTERBRIDGE announced a new album coming in September with "Fortress". 
  • Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted had to drop off the Gigantour with his band NEWSTED because of walking pneumonia. That sucks, get better yo! 
Hopefully next week we'll be back in with the video and outtakes. Thanks for your patience on this matter. Also, they are looking for someone to help in the digital department. Got skills? http://ch.tbe.taleo.net/CH11/ats/careers/requisition.jsp?org=ENTERCOM&cws=1&rid=953
