Rock group Skillet have announced that they will be releasing their ninth studio album Rise on June 25th. The album is the followup to 2009′s Awake and is produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects). It also serves as the band’s first concept album, telling the story of an American teenager coming into adulthood.
Bassist/singer John Cooper states, “The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen. As we recorded them, we started to realize that there was something going on—that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed to make it as powerful as we could.”
The album’s first single “Sick Of It” will be available on iTunes on April 9th. READ MORE
On November 30 LD Entertainment will open The Collection revealing all of the nasty items within. The film is directed by Marcus Dunstan and written by Dunstan and Patrick Melton (their writing credits include Piranha 3DD, Feast, Saw IV, V, VI, Saw 3D and of course The Collector and Pacific Rim). I sat down with the pair earlier today, and while my full interview with them doesn’t hit until Thursday I figured I’d share a few tidbits on Waterproof and The Collected – the potential third installment of The Collector!
In the new sequel, “When Elena’s (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he’s transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon learning of his daughter’s disappearance, Elena’s wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through thegruesome labyrinth. Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save Elena.”
MILD SPOILERS for The Collection follow (a film you should definitely see on Friday if you liked The Collector). Head inside to check it out and come back for the full-length interview on Thursday! READ MORE
