Prophets Of Rage debut new ‘Unf**k the World’ track at their Santiago, Chile concert

Prophets of Rage unveiled a new track at their show in Santaigo, Chile earlier this week. 'Unf**k the World' will be featured on the groups debut forthcoming full length album, the follow-up to last year’s 'The Party’s Over' EP.

The song features the unmistakable Chuck D. and B-Real sharing lines in the chorus with Tom Morello churning and melodic guitar, along with the always dynamic rhythm section of bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.

The band has been in the studio recently working on new tracks with Producer Brendan O'Brien for the anticipated full length album, due later this year.

Black Stone Cherry will be hitting the road hard with Hinder first, then opening up for Alter Bridge, while hitting some headlining gigs on their own on some open dates. These guys keep taking it to the next level with every album!

Here's an offical press release from their label Roadrunner records:

Roadrunner Records has set a May 31 release date for the third BLACK STONE CHERRY album, "Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea".

Kentucky's BLACK STONE CHERRY, comprised of vocalist Chris Robertson, guitarist Ben Wells, bassist Jon Lawhon and drummer John Fred Young, is a band adept at creating both timeless rock 'n' roll and new, innovative sounds. While the band's last record, "Folklore And Superstition", was a compelling tribute to brotherhood and history, the new album is the summation of a year in the life of the band — every emotion, triumph, loss, romance and everything in between — it's all here on "Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea".

This is the first time BLACK STONE CHERRY has not recorded in the South, this time taking up residence in Los Angeles to work with famed producer Howard Benson (THEORY OF A DEADMAN, DAUGHTRY, THREE DAYS GRACE). The new surroundings allowed them to strengthen their relationships as both band members and friends, ultimately a detail that sets "Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea" above previous recordings. The raw intensity that pervades the music on this album harkens back to the early days of BLACK STONE CHERRY, when they were a bunch of blue-collar guys just making music together for the hell of it. The band admits, "When we first began writing music, we hadn't traveled very far out of our home state of Kentucky. Now, ten years later, we've traveled the world and experienced things we never imagined we would."

First single, "White Trash Millionaire", set to hit airwaves in April, pairs Robertson's soulful delivery with the urgent and infectious rhythms of his fellow players. Sure, this is Southern rock at heart; but the concept is universal: just take what the world gives you and make that work. "This album is the culmination of all of the everyday ups and downs life throws at you," says the band. "Sonically, you'll hear some of the meanest sounding guitar riffs we've ever laid down, and at the same time, you'll find ballads that will tug on your heartstrings. We wanted the album's intensity to match that of our live show. We're very proud of this album and excited for our fans to hear it!"

To celebrate the release of "Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea", BLACK STONE CHERRY is participating in an ongoing partnership with Evan Williams Kentucky Bourbon. The promotion brings 450,000 BLACK STONE CHERRY-branded bottles to shelves nationwide through June, including special mp3 offers and a chance to win a trip to meet the band at one of their shows.

BLACK STONE CHERRY is set to have quite the busy spring, with tours with HINDER and ALTER BRIDGE on the horizon.

Seether are back with a song blowing up the rock charts. "Country Song" is from the new album "Holding On To Strings Better Left To Fray", coming out May 17th.

“This is a very diverse album, there are a lot of different sounding songs,” said singer Shaun Morgan. “We want each album to be a little bit different; we don’t want to keep rehashing the same stuff.” For the new album, the band worked with acclaimed producer Brendan O'Brien, in a series of recording sessions in Nashville over the past year. “Working with Brendan was really cool. I think all of us are fans of his and the albums he’s produced in the past,” said Morgan. “He’s a great musician and really good producer.”

While the entire recording process took over a year, Morgan said most of the time was spent writing the material, not recording it. The band wrote over 30 songs for album, of which 11 have made the album.

“I think our best stuff comes when we’re just in a room together jamming,” explained Morgan. “We don’t try to take it too seriously. If we push ourselves too hard, we just end up over analyzing everything and looking too much into the details. Basically if we don’t enjoy playing it then we don’t think the fans will enjoy it [either.]”

Seether's spring tour starts April 1st in Fort Myers, Florida at City of Palms Park. It will continue until May 29th with Seether rocking Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma, and a date July 16th in Cadott, Wisconsin at the Chippewa Valley Rock Fest.

It's yet another great track from Seether, who are a staple on rock stations that still have any semblance of balls at all:

Canadian rocker Danko Jones is back on the Rock Picks of the Week with "I Think Bad Thoughts". Danko Jones continues to make major inroads with each each every video and single he releases. An incredibly talented musicican and artist, Danko Jones will continue his rise onward and upward in the rock world. This guy has got that "something", and if you don't believe, check out his album, past videos, and previous posts on this site.

Danko Jones's video for "I Think Bad Thoughts", the third and final installment of the "Below The Belt" video trilogy, can be viewed below. The video marks the return of an all-star cast that had been previously featured in both of the band's epic "Full of Regret" and "Had Enough" videos. "I Think Bad Thoughts" stars actors Elijah Wood ("Lord Of The Rings" trilogy, "The Hobbit") and Ralph Macchio ("The Karate Kid", ABC television's "Dancing With The Stars") reprising their roles from previous videos in the trilogy, actress Jena Malone ("Into The Wild", "The Messenger", "Sucker Punch"), Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firhose, The Stooges), Frank Drank (Capitol One "Viking"), and Art Hsu ("Crank: High Voltage", "The FP").

Directed by the Diamond Brothers, Josh and Jason (video directors of the entire "Below The Belt" trilogy), and shot in Los Angeles, "mad scientist" Ralph Macchio and his assistant Jena Malone seek out Danko Jones to help finish the job on hitmen Frank Drank and Elijah Wood — as set forth in the previous videos. The first video for "Full Of Regret" was hailed as "one-part 'Sabotage', one-part Guy Ritchie, one-part Quentin Tarantino," while called the "Had Enough" video "a noir-ish crime story that's like a Charles Bukowski novel come to life."

Next up is My Darkest Days with "Move Your Body".
These Canadian rockers are based in Toronto, and consist of lead singer Matt Walst, Doug Oliver, Brendan McMillan, Sal Costa, and Reid Henry. They were discovered by Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, who signed them up for his production company, 604 Records.

The band start a tour with Three Days Grace tonight at The Knitting Factory Concert House in Spokane, Washington.

Here's another killer track from their debut album, and the follow up to the sucessful first single "Porn Star Dancing":

Stryper "God"
Stryper's new album "The Covering" is an collection of quality covers from everyone from Black Sabbath and Van Halen, to KISS and Ozzy, but the thirteen track album also includes an all-new Stryper tune, "God." Vocalist Michael Sweet said, "Something that I was concerned about doing a covers album was the backlash. Being a Christian band, I was afraid we would get beat up pretty good. And sure enough, people in the press were saying early on, 'What are they doing? Are they Christian still?' All this nonsense. I just felt like, 'We really should put a song on there that solidifies our faith.' And that tells everyone questioning our faith, 'No, we haven't turned our back on God, we're still serious about it.' I was laying in bed one night, and the melody was in my head. I went downstairs, got a guitar, worked out some chords, recorded it, the next morning I wrote the lyrics, and there it was. It really came together quickly."

I believe in "God', and so should you.

Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all-time, and certainly the most celebrated Christian metal band of all time. Comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass), and Robert Sweet (drums),
Here's the track list from "The Covering":
1. Set Me Free (Sweet)
2. Blackout (Scorpions)
