Giraffe Tongue Orchestra In The Studio

Ben and Ross

That’s an assumption. But an educated assumption, based on the picture accompanying this post. It shows Ben Weinman, guitarist for Dillinger Escape Plan, hanging with producer Ross Robinson, who has had a hand in more good records than you’ve put your own hand on your dong. The caption? “Ross Robinson and I single and ready […]

Faith No More

Faith No More bassist Billy Gould tells Classic Rock magazine (are they classic rock at this point?) the band may begin work on a new studio album at some point relatively soon. This, after the band debuted two new songs this summer during live sets. Gould says: “We’re considering doing something new. [But] we’re not […]

Hatebreed Frontman Working With Disturbed Bassist

Jamey Jasta

Looks like Jamey Jasta’s been up to more than just podcasting. Looks like the dude may release a second solo record. Because that first one was so stellar, right? I don’t even remember whether it was good or bad. It was just not memorable. Anyways, Disturbed’s bassist, John Moyer — the same dude who just […]

Goatwhore: More U.S. Shows Booked


I feel like the dudes in Goatwhore haven’t seen their homes since 2013. Is it me, or have the Goatwhore guys been busting ass all year, touring the fuck out of this country of freedom that isn’t free? The band’s got a new album in stores, so of course, they’ve been touring. But seriously, I […]
