Hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch will be embarking on a US/Canadian west coast tour beginning in March. The 14-date trek begins in Las Vegas, NV and ends in Casper, WY. The band is touring in support of their latest release, American Capitalist (review). Support on these dates will come from Soulfly, Windowpane, and Persist.
A new Staind album. For me, a reason to rejoice, but for many of their haters and detractors, another chance to say the same old thing about the group that has been said for about 10 years now. “They went soft”, “They sold out”, or “All Aaron Lewis does is whine and cry for an hour on each album.” Even though I disagree with all of the above statements, to someone who already isn’t a fan of the band, I can see these points. Well friends, if you are one of the haters of Staind, then their new self-titled album is for you. READ MORE
Hailing from New York City, Eve To Adam have ben rocking the underground scene like a tidal wave for several years. Now, with Banquet For A Starving Dog, they are hitting the mainstream with full force and wild energy. However, does their album stack up or does it fall prey to becoming one of countless generic fillers? Check after the jump for the answer.
A few days ago we gave you a teaser clip for Evanescence‘s video for What You Want. Well, today, the video has come out and you can check it out after the jump!
Evanescence will be releasing their video for What You Want next Tuesday on Vevo but we’ve got a 20-second clip for you to check out after the jump. The clip shows the band rocking out in front of a crowd as well as brooding shots of singer Amy Lee walking along a pier (at least that’s what it looks like). Check it out and get excited for the upcoming self-titled third studio album.
Marilyn Manson has dubbed his upcoming album Born Villain. Considering that was the name of the song released yesterday, I don’t think many people are surprised by this. He also posted on his official website a short blurb detailing the work that he has done with actor Shia LaBeouf:
While it’s been out for a while that Shia LaBeouf would be directing a documentary following Marilyn Manson during the recording of the upcoming new album, I didn’t realize that LaBeouf would be handling other aspects as well. After the jump, you can watch a video for Born Villain, which LaBeouf says draws heavily from Shakespeare’s Macbeth as well as the famous short film by Salvador Dali, Un Chien Andalou (courtesy MTV.com).
Say whatever you want, but the upcoming release of Evanescence‘s third album, which is self-titled, is generating a lot of industry and fan buzz. Considering that it’s been five years since The Open Door, it’s no wonder. Personally, I thought only Tool had that kind of staying power, but it looks like there is something about Amy Lee that keeps people drawn in. To tease fans just a little more, Evanescence has released the official artwork for the upcoming album, which drops October 11th. Personally, I think it’s a bit plain and uninventive. Check it out after the jump and let me know what YOU think. READ MORE
We’ve seen some really cool videos over the years from Deftones, so it’s only fitting that a live video be just as engaging. Turns out they thought the same thing and it’s evident in the new video for Beauty School, which comes off their latest album Diamond Eyes (review here) and also just so happens to be my favorite track off the album.
Official tour dates for the Evanescence, Rival Sons, and The Pretty Reckless tour have been released. The tour goes for just over three weeks and hits several of the major cities in North America. Evanescence will be touring in support of their new, self-titled album, which is their first new release in five years.
So you’ve read the headline and are asking yourself, “Why, if this video is so terrible, would I want to watch it?”. Because now you’re curious. It’s that simple. I’ve put the bug in you and you’ll be getting irritated and itching to watch the new Drowning Pool video for Let The Sin Begin just so you can see for yourself how bad it really is. Want a teaser? Boring storyline, generic hot girls, comic book style panels that are shifting too often to be comprehensible. That good enough for you?
In case you didn’t know, Fieldy, best known as the bassist for Korn, has a side project called Stillwell for which he plays guitar. Okay, now that you’re all caught up, the band has released a video for the song You Can’t Stop Me, which comes off their debut album Dirtbag, which was released earlier this year on Nu Day Records.
It’s been five years since The Open Door and Evanescence is on a fast track to release their self-titled album later this year. Well, after a few years of waiting for new material, you can finally hear the new single, What You Want, right now! Below is the live version that was filmed on MTV but after the jump you can hear the studio version. I’m actually really digging on it! It’s a fun track and Amy Lee sounds great. What are your thoughts?
MTV recently conducted an interview with Amy Lee of Evanescence to discuss the status of the upcoming self-titled album, which hits stores October 11th courtesy of Wind-Up Records. During the interview, they got to hear the new single, What You Want, and shared some of it in a video, which you can check after the jump. What do you think? Is it the sound you were expecting?
I’m in a weird frame of mind. Seems like more and more of todays pop stars are big hard rock/metal fans. Lady Gaga is certainly one, what with her near obsession of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Now Ke$ha is joining in on this trend by having shock rock legend Alice Cooper come up on stage in Oslo during a cover of School’s Out. So why the weird mood? Because as cool as it is that they are sharing their love of metal with their fans, these pop artists are just so…well, they just try way too damn hard to shock the world the way that the rock stars the idolize did in their time. Trouble is, our generation has pretty much seen and heard it all. So, these attempts to shock and awe us with fashion and “provocative” lyrics don’t have nearly the same impact. Basically, stop trying so hard with how you look and focus on the music you’re releasing.
