Smashing Pumpkins will issue ‘Oceania,’ their seventh studio album, on June 19. It exists as part of the band’s ambitious, 44-song ‘Teargarden by Kaleidyscope’ project, which is released in song-by-song format and has been since 2009. Yet ‘Oceania’ still stands apart as a separate piece.
Given his recent health issues – including his status as a lifelong diabetic and the life-threatening stretch in 2010 where he endured an appendectomy, a brain hemorrhage and discovered a hole in his heart- Poison frontman Bret Michaels has been selected to give the keynote speech at a conference for the Diversity Alliance for Science on May 22 in Newark, N.J.
Scott Ian has opened his vaults and the Anthrax archive. The guitarist is auctioning off a multitude of items from over 30 years of his headbanging history. Everything from those famous yellow shorts imprinted with the “Not” saying all over them to a beat up pair of Adidas high tops (size 8, Patrick Ewing style) to vintage passes and tour itineraries are going on the block. If you are a diehard ‘Thrax worshipper or tried and true metal fan, there are plenty of items worth owning here. Some of the offerings are priceless.
Buckcherry have shared a minute-long audio clip of the song ‘Wherever I Go.’ The tune has prime placement on ‘Avengers Assemble,’ the soundtrack to ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,’ which is easily one of the most hyped and talked about action films of the summer.
System of a Down and Deftones are teasing what looks to be a Monday (April 23) announcement of a joint North American tour. Hot on the heels of the news that they both will be playing Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals up in Canada this summer, it looks like more dates together are in the works, as the bands used their social media and online properties to drop obvious hints.
Time to move to Australia and schlep our lives away as public servants or crocodile wrestlers. Why? Well, a judge decided that a woman who was injured having sex at an Australian motel while on a work trip is entitled to Workman’s Compensation. How do we get that deal, since the circumstances sound like grounds for a firing? Regardless, what kinda sex was she having that it caused injury? Sounds like kinky stuff.
The 2012 Scion Rock Fest is set to hit Tampa, Fla., and its free to the public. This year’s spectacle takes place on June 2, just in time for the summer swelter. Down and Sleep are set to headline the event, where 26 metal bands will perform at four different venues throughout the course of the day. The city of Tampa will never, ever be the same.
Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee is urging fans to adopt pets as opposed to purchasing them at pet stores, which get their canines from puppy mills. Those mills are facilities that provide substandard care for the breeding animals.
Axl Rose has hammered another nail in the Guns N’ Roses original lineup coffin. The singer was photographed exiting the famed Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles last night (April 6) with pop music up ‘n comer Lana Del Rey when he delivered a one-sentence declaration about playing with his former bandmates.
Not once, but twice! That’s how many times Kiss will perform on ABC’s ratings bonanza ‘Dancing With the Stars’ next week. We know, we sounded like the Count for a minute there. In all seriousness, Gene Simmons and co. will take to the stage on both Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10 to rock the worlds of the viewers like never before.
The video for Marilyn Manson‘s ‘No Reflection’ has landed, and it’s a dark, dastardly portrait of an American family, of sorts. Of course, a pasty-faced and red lipstick-smeared Marilyn Manson is singing, smack dab in front of the camera during the performance footage. He’s also starring in the plot scenes. Double duty indeed. And why not? It’s his vision.
Quick, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente with 576,000 miles on it? You probably envisioned it being restored, housed in a glass case a la Cameron’s dad’s Ferrari in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,’ right? It’s surely not street legal or safe any longer, right? Wrong.
