Nuevo Music For You!

A Blood Moon last night! Taxes due today! And now reports that AC/DC might be done!!
Thank god it's New Music Tuesday or I might've shat myself in the studio and walked right out. Probably not, but still.... Let's begin!

As you all undoubtedly know SEVENDUST's acousictic piece of work, "Time Travelers & Bonfires" has finally dropped. Totally funded via Crowdsourcing, these guys will showcase what's on said album next Thursday!

I know I've posted about them in previous blogs, and FRITZ is playing them regularly in The Pit, EMMURE puts out "Eternal Enemies" today.

FOO FIGHTERS percussionist TAYLOR HAWKINS unveils it's self-titled debut today and SoCal Stoner Rockers KYNG have put out their latest disc with "Burn the Serum".

And closing out the new stuff for today, is a complete albums box set of BLACK SABBATH from 1970 to 1978!

Some great vinyl has come out today, as well. Most noteably deluxe reissues of LED ZEPPELIN II, III, & IV and DEAD KENNEDY's 7 inch box set!

On Monday WOVENWAR will drop their debut single, "All Rise". Now I know what you're saying, "Nivens... who the f*ck is Wovenwar??" They're the new project by everyone in AS I LAY DYING sans TIM LAMBESIS and with vocalist SHANE BLAY of the band OH SLEEPER.

New Video for POP EVIL's "Torn to Pieces"

I still say they "borrowed" heavily from 3 DOORS DOWN's "Here Without You" but the song is climbing the charts (as of this blog #5) and we'll see them at ROCKFEST!
Do enjoy!!

But They Made It!

I have been a KISS fan all my life and was so pleased to hear they made it but for many years I have really put little stock into the "Hall Of Fame."
Too many non rock bands make it in then I read the treatment to a true Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band...
Read for yourself.
M

KISS frontman Paul Stanley has slammed Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame co-founder and Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner as a "spineless weasel," claiming that the guitarist/vocalist and the rest of the band were treated like "uninvited guests" during Thursday night's (April 10) induction ceremony.

"Our treatment at the [Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame] confirmed my worst suspicions," Stanley fumed via Twitter. "Wenner and the rest are spineless weasels." He went on to say that the people behind the Rock Hall gave the members of KISS "no passes" or "schedule" for the evening, but didn't elaborate on what exactly he was referring to. He concluded: "We were great and [Wenner] remains a small man."

Stanley's bandmate, KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons, also took a couple of shots at Rolling Stone on Twitter, mocking the magazine's original critical review of LED ZEPPELIN's first album, writing "Rolling Stone. Idiots then. Idiots now." He then posted a link to a video from the early 1970s band CHRISTOPHER MILK, which featured John Mendelsohn, the writer who penned the negative reviews that appeared in Rolling Stone of each of the first two LED ZEPPELIN LPs.

Stanley ended his Hall Of Fame speech on Thursday by calling the evening "vindication" for the fans. He also took a dig at the Hall Of Fame by saying, "The people, I believe, are speaking to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and what they're saying is, 'We want more.' They deserve more. They want to be a part of the induction. They want to be a part of the nomination. They don't want to be spoon-fed by a handful of people. Choices. The people pay for tickets. The people buy albums. The people who nominate do not. Let's not forget that these are the people that make it all possible. We just benefit from it."

KISS did not perform at the ceremony — the Hall Of Fame wanted the original quartet only to play, while Simmons and Stanley insisted on the current lineup performing as well. In the end nobody won that battle.

The 29th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony was taped and will air on May 31 on HBO.

New Musica Tuesday!!

Here we go people!! Viva la musica!!! Some noteable new music for today and some big announcements to look forward to!

Rockfest alum and returners BLACK LABEL SOCIETY have their latest effort out today with "Catacombs of the Black Vatican"!! Catch BLS on the Monster Energy Stage at 3:50pm!

Former RED HOT CHILI PEPPER's guitarist JOHN FRUSCIANTED has unveiled a new solo effort in "Enclosure". Speaking of RHCP, as you've undoudtebly heard, FLEA will be kicking out an autobiography. No date of release, yet.

CROWBAR's gonna drop some noise on May 27th with "Symmetry in Black" and if you're looking for a little teaser, then look no further than this little number "Walk With Knowledge Wisely".


I told you guys about TAYLOR HAWKINS (drummer for that lil band foo fighters) getting out from behind the kit and assuming vocal duties for a new side-project THE BIRDS OF SATAN. Now their self-titled debut album doesn't drop till next week BUT you can stream the entire thing right here ---> https://soundcloud.com/thebirdsofsatan

THEORY OF A DEADMAN have annoucned the month of July for their latest album, "SaVages". A month before that, on June the 17th, Swedish Metallers OPETH will roll out their 11th studio album in "Pale Communion" AND on June 24th CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will kick out "IX".

OFF! (featuring KEITH MORRIS of BLACK FLAG & CIRCLE JERKS) drop their 3rd studio album with "Wasted Years". OFF! is to be out on tour soon, sadly, no plans for KC.

In mid-August we'll see the 20th anniversary deluxe reissue of THE OFFSPRING's "Smash". It'll have all the bells and whistles that one would expect from a deluxe reissue.

ANNNND to round out this list, I just found out & can nearly contain my excitement CLUTCH is in pre-production mode for their next studio album! They're to team up with LIONIZE for a split seven-inch single for RECORD STORE DAY!

Found Music Friday's!!

A band building a lot of momentum these days is EMMURE. On Monday they dropped a video for "Like LaMotta"! Peep it here!

JOSEY SCOTT might've left SALIVA in 2011 but that hasn't stopped the band from moving forward, which they'll do with their second studio effort featuring new vocalist BOBBY AMARU at the end of the month with "Rise Up". They rolled out a video for the title-track, also, on Monday.


QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE dropped a new video, on Tuesday, for "Smooth Sailing" off of Like Clockwork. Might wanna put it down on your planner that QOTSA will be here with PRIMUS on the 13th of May. Same day as SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES & EXODUS!


FU MANCHU Mother F*ckers!!

CALIFORNIA BREED put out another video this week for the tune "Midnight Oil". It will be interesting to see if this band can gain more traction out there than the previous band GLENN HUGHES & JASON BONHAM had out in BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION.

On Tuesday we'll see the release of KYNG's latest work "Burn the Serum" and they've put the entire disc up for your listening pleasure over on Soundcloud!

This was just some of the new videos and music that dropped this week. It's by no means the official be all that came out.

The new Mastodon song "High Road" used to sit here but I received a cease & desist letter so I had to pull it. I guess that's the high road there. Badum Bum!

Found Music Friday!

ANNNND Take 2! Man, I F*cking LOVE technology! I just typed out a killer blog, complete with the last two weeks of music I came across which I thought you guys would dig and when I went to post it.. POOF! Just like that! Gone! So here's the short and curly verision of this, because I'm pissed and need a drink!

Basically, the following are songs or videos that I either came across this week or were released this week that I dig and thought you might. There's not gonna be any running commentary because our parent company forces us to use this cheap-as-sh!t blogging system and since I might get kicked off line again THUS wasting my time putting it togther, I'll keep it brief!

Video from one of my new favorite bands GOJIRA "Born in Winter"

DEVIL YOU KNOW is the latest profect from ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE frontman HOWARD JONES. These guys are getting a great response in The Pit with FRITZ.

BIG shoutout to my man the BUSTAMANTE for turning me onto these guys; DANGERS "Power Chord Blues".

Great parody video to a wonderfully parodied song, "This is a Trent Reznor Song".

Finally, I've heard a lot about BABYMETAL and decided I'd give them an honest spin and listen to this week. I'm in. I would, honestly, like to see them at some point.
3 pre-teen girls from Japan doing metal? Sure, why not!

That's this week's #FoundMusicFriday.
What'd you come across this week that's new to you?
