Kissing Candice Record Coming In June

Kissing Candice

Consider yourself warned. That band from Long Island that makes me embarrassed I grew up there, Kissing Candice, has a new album due out June 30 on Victory Records. The band is, of course, part of the ultra-weak lineup for this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. That new album is called Blind Until We […]

Revocation Summer Slaughter Bound?


The organizers of this year’s Summer Slaughter continue to tease a possible lineup for the annual trek. The latest has Revocation maybe joining the bill. Imagine that. I mean, Cattle Decapitation are supposed to be playing it, along with The Black Dahlia Murder. Add Revocation to that mix, and that is a tour you need […]

Refused Tease New Music


Today, Refused posted a mere second of new music online, basically confirming what we already were well aware of: the band has a new album coming. That brief glimpse into what is to come follows at the end of this post. Refused will be quite busy this year, with several shows planned including an opening […]

Slipknot Frontman Once Approached For “Rock Of Love”

Elton John called. He wants his suit back.

I never actually gave it any thought, but dude…before he got married in 2009, Corey Taylor was likely quite the cocksman. Think about it. He was single…the lead singer of one of the world’s most notorious metal bands, playing shows all over the planet. I bet he landed so much fotch while on tour, he […]

Motörhead’s Lemmy Is Not Well Again


Everybody’s favorite male slut, Lemmy Kilmister, has taken ill. The Motörhead frontman hasn’t been feeling like himself in some time. Today, Motörhead had to cancel its set at the Monsters Of Rock festival in Brazil. Seems Lemmy had some “gastric distress” and was suffering from dehydration. The rest of the band did end up playing […]

This New Deftones Shirt Design Is Pretty Dope

I need this on my chest

What’s up, kids? It’s Saturday night (Sunday morning), and I’ve had a few beers after a long day of family-related events. But let’s get one thing straight, butt darts — I don’t need to be slightly inebriated to know I want this fucking Deftones shirt. The design that appears on the raglan tee is the […]

Slayer’s Kerry King: New LP Bostaph’s Reign


When God Hates Us All was released, an album I’d considered pretty execrable, Kerry King called the Slayer record Paul Bostaph’s Reign In Blood. Forget that, though. He’s changed his mind. Now Kerry, who has been doing a great deal of press lately for this forthcoming Slayer LP, is claiming in a chat with Loudwire […]

Planes Mistaken For Stars Book Summer Shows

Planes Mistaken For Stars

Post-hardcore heroes Planes Mistaken For Stars are back together, some two-and-a-half year after their last show. We’ve heard little if anything from Planes Mistaken For Stars ever since, but their silence was broken today. A press release claims the band “have been quietly and persistently working on new music, due to surface on Deathwish sometime […]

Thy Art Is Murder Reveal Scrapped Album Cover

The album's original cover

I’m kind of glad they changed it, because really, the only thing that pops into my head when I see the image affixed to this blog post is “What the fuck?” As in, what the fuck were you idiots fucking thinking, trying to glorify suicide vests like that? I’m guessing no thinking went into it […]

Agnostic Front Documentary Announced

I'm down to see this

This is something I’d be curious to watch. Film maker and music video director Ian McFarland is working on a documentary about Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma, “the lynchpins behind New York Hardcore and their band Agnostic Front,” says a press release. The film will be “an intimate portrait of these two men — two […]
