Deftones Book West Coast Gigs


The Deftones have not been touring as of late, mostly because they’ve been busy writing a new album that will no doubt be as awesome as a girl who doesn’t flinch when you accidentally put it in the wrong hole. The Deftones do have some festival gigs booked, and to presumably prepare for those, they […]

First Metal Alliance Tour Dates Released


The Metal Alliance Tour is happening, folks. And we’ve got the first dates announced, bitch. This year’s trek will feature Deicide, Entombed A.D., Hate Eternal, Black Crown Initiate and Svart Crown.

Refused Announce Tour Dates


I’ve always been a fan of Refused, and always will be. The reunited Swedish hardcore punk band will be touring the U.S. this spring. And word is they’ve got a new album on the way, which is going to be grand. I saw Refused when they last toured the states, and they were fucking on, […]

Marilyn Manson To Tour With Smashing Pumpkins


The end is nigh, folks. Two men who know what Courtney Love’s butthole tastes like will be touring together. Marilyn Manson and the Smashing Pumpkins will be teaming up for a co-headlining tour this summer. “The End Times” trek will commence in early July, kicking off from California, winding its way around the U.S. before […]

Aborted To Tour With Fit For An Autopsy


To me, that makes no sense. I, for one, don’t dig on Fit For An Autopsy. I get that they can play, I just don’t like their output. It doesn’t resonate with me. Why they’d be touring with Aborted is beyond me. Maybe I’m nuts. Maybe I’m wrong for not getting why Fit For An […]

Van Halen Announce North American Shows


That’s right, people. Van Halen will be touring North America this summer and fall, and you’re invited. You have to pay, of course. Probably through the nose. But you are nevertheless invited.

Ghoul, Phobia To Tour


Holy fuck, am I glad this tour’s coming through Brooklyn! And playing Saint Vitus, no less. Sometimes, life isn’t so bad. Sometimes, it’s worth living. Yes indeed, it’s true: Ghoul, Phobia and Nekrofilth will be taking to the road this May for the Weapons of Mosh Destruction 3D Tour. Not sure how it’ll be 3D, […]
