Josh Freese’s Tuba-Playing Dad Tapped For QOTSA LP

Mr. Freese with Mr. Homme

The new Queens of the Stone Age album will presumably feature cameos from anyone and everyone with even a loose affiliation with the band. That’d be awesome were it true. But today, we did learn that the band’s forthcoming new studio album will feature the musical stylings of tuba soloist Stan Freese — pop to […]

Ulcerate Book Studio Time


Fuck! Yes! In late 2011, Ulcerate signed a deal with Relapse Records. This week, the death metal band from New Zealand will enter hometown MCA Studios to harness their anticipated fourth LP. “After almost exactly twelve months of exhaustive work we are now in the final stages of preparation for our fourth album,” says drummer […]

Brujeria Are Recording! Brujeria Are Recording!


Let the jizz shoot forth, my friends. Brujeria are tracking a brand spankin’ new album, which will no doubt rip your face off and fuck the eye sockets. Metaphorically, speaking. We learned in December the band would be playing shows…which they are doing now. But before these shows, tracking for the new Brujeria commenced. The […]

Alcest Tracking New Album


They’ve been recording their new album since yesterday, which is awesome because, well, Alcest are awesome. And if you disagree, we can’t be friends anymore. The French metal act entered Sundlaugin Studio in Iceland to start recording the successor to Les Voyages De L’Âme with producer Birgir Jón Birgisson. “You can expect something different from […]

Motörhead Are Recording! Motörhead Are Recording!


This morning, I woke up at the ass-crack to move my car. On the way, I almost startled a skunk. I live in an urban area. I don’t expect to see skunks like that. Later, I was looking out my window, and saw a fucking possum (or opossum, if you’re Irish) walking around in the […]

We Are Knuckle Dragger Offer Album Update

We Are Knuckle Dragger

Before we listened to them, we assumed We Are Knuckle Dragger was just a joke band with zero talent. Good thing we gave ‘em a listen, because they’re seemingly awesome. They’ve been working with producer Ross Robinson on a new album, and the band checked in with us to provide a quick update on their […]

Steel Panther Recording Third LP

Steel Panther

Our pals over at The Gauntlet claim a new Steel Panther album is in the works. This, of course, is depressing news. So many awesome bands don’t get to release even first albums, yet this cheesy-ass “joke” band (with talent, admittedly) gets to put out a third album about analingus and groupie-fueled glass bottom boats. […]

Enter Shikari Enter Studio

Bet you'd like to enter a contest for smartest girl ever
