Deftones Performing ‘Around The Fur’ At Amnesia Rock Fest


This is rather awesome. The Deftones will be playing their sophomore album Around the Fur in full during the upcoming Amnesia Rock Fest, which is set for June 18 through June 21 in Montebello, Quebec.

Kingdom Of Sorrow On Ice, Says Jasta

Kirk and Jamey

Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed knows how to work it. The dude stays in touch with his fans, and that’s wha’s helped him build up his own personal fanbase. There are more Jamey Jasta fans than there are Hatebreed fans, at this point. Good for Jamey. Case in point: A fan asked him on Twitter when […]

Slayer, Exodus, Slipknot Playing Carolina Rebellion


The lineup for the fifth annual Carolina Rebellion has been announced, and for a fifth straight year, I am unimpressed and uninspired to make the trek to North Carolina.

Rock On The Range Lineup Announced


The lineup for the 2015 installment of Rock On The Range has been announced, and I’d say there are a couple of true standouts in the mix. But for the most part, the lineup blows hard. Like your sister. But it’s what we’ve come to expect from the festival’s organizers. And your sister. Rock On […]

Stone Sour Covers Album In The Works

Elton John called. He wants his suit back.

Great. Just what the world needs. A cover album from Stone Sour. Super. It’ll be called Meanwhile In Burbank and drums for it are now being tracked in the Burbank, California-based studio of the group’s drummer, Roy Mayorga. Hence, the title. No word yet on what covers will appear on the disc. But let’s hope […]

Don Slater’s Pork Chop Express: Travel, Sex-sationalism And The Gwar-B-Q


“You just look to the old Pork Chop Express and take his advice on a dark and stormy night, alright? When some wild-eyed eight foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head against a bar room wall, looks you crooked in the eyes and asks if you’ve paid your dues? […]
