Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry have released another great single from the 'Beyond The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea.' 'Like I Roll' is the fourth single from the album, following 'White Trash Millionaire,' 'Blame It on the Boom Boom,' and 'In My Blood.' The road warriors recently wrapped up a successful tour with Chickenfoot in the U.S. and more dates in Europe, and are back on the road this summer starting July 28th in Dubuque, Iowa. Chris Robertson (vocals/guitar), Ben Wells (rhythm guitar), Jon Lawhon (bass) and John Fred Young (drums) will be starting work on their next album this fall, and by all indications, considering all the amazing groundwork the band has behind them, it promises to be their most successful yet.

Redlight King and singer/songwriter Mark Kasprzyk are up next with the track 'Comeback.' Kasprzyk used to be known as Kazzer. That was about a decade ago. Although he got some traction with the song 'Pedal to the Medal,' Kazzer was only a brief flash in the pan in mainstream music. Now years later, Mark Kasprzyk is no longer Kazzer. He’s just Kaz and he’s front and center in a new project he started called Redlight King.

'Comeback' conveys a message of hope, a message of not giving up no matter how far down you are. You can make a 'Comeback' with this inspirational track. It delivers a message of hope in these troubled times. The song is featured on the 'Avengers Assembled' soundtrack as well as the band's album 'Something For the Pain.' The band has had success with the Neil Young cover 'Old Man' and the previous rock pick of the week 'Bullet In My Hand.'

Red Hot Chili Peppers have released the latest track and video from the 'I'm With You' album. 'Brendan's Death Song,' is a ballad the band wrote in honor of Brendan Mullen, founder of late Seventies Hollywood punk club the Masque. After it was shut down in 1978, Mullen booked shows on the Sunset Strip's Club Lingerie. One day in 1983, Anthony Kiedis and Flea showed up at the club with a boom box and asked Mullen to listen to their demo. He did, and offered them an opening gig for Bad Brains.

"It was a huge step for us to get that gig," Flea said in an interview in 2009. "But in a much more important way, I felt profoundly validated to be accepted and acknowledged by Brendan Mullen, who was a crucial part – a hub – of a scene that for me had mythological status." Mullen suffered a massive stroke and died on the first day that the Chili Peppers were to rehearse with their new guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer.

"When I got to rehearsal I delivered the news to my band that we just lost this beautiful person," said Kiedis, "and then we started playing without really talking. The second thing that came out of that jam was the basis for 'Brendan’s Death Song.'" Keidis also revealed that Mullen was working on a coffee-table book about the band, called 'The Red Hot Chili Peppers: An Oral/Visual History,' when he died.

Check out the jazz funeral-themed video for "Brendan's Death Song," which was shot in one day in New Orleans and directed by Marc Klasfeld.

Papa Roach are back with the new single 'Still Swingin' from the upcoming album 'The Connection.' The band recorded in their home studio in Sacramento and also worked in Tommy Lee's Atrium Studio.

Bassist Tobin Esperance said the band basically lived out of the recording area 24/7 while completing the disc. He laughed about how the band laid down 20 tracks, cut it down to 12, and then decided to write five more.

Some of the album tracks include 'Before I Die,' with electronic-programmed verses and a big rock chorus, 'Where Did the Angels Go,' 'Wish You Never Met Me,' produced by Sixx: A.M.‘s James Michael; 'Not That Beautiful' featuring guest vocalist Shanaz; and 'Leader of the Broken Hearts,' a track Shaddix says was initially influenced by their past favorite, 'Forever.'

Shaddix says that he got sober during the making of the record and also dealt with his wife leaving him, stating: “We wanted to make a dynamic and explosive record that captures the raw emotions of life. We also wanted to incorporate the biological sounds of rock with a digital edge to have a fresh sound. This is our own version of what we think the radio should sound like. This is the soundtrack to my life and once again I went through some dark shit and came through thanks to the music."

Here's a three-and-a-half-minute video clip capturing the creative process that went into the making of the cover artwork for 'The Connection':

Ann and Nancy Wilson will release the new Heart album 'Fanatic' on October 2nd. 'Fanatic' was recorded in hotel rooms and studios up and down the West Coast, with Grammy-winning producer Ben Mink back at the helm with the Wilson sisters drawing from their own lives and personal experiences as inspiration for their music. "Rock Deep (Vancouver)" harkens back to the city where Dreamboat Annie was written; and "Walkin' Good" (a duet with Vancouver resident Sarah McLachlan) captures the joy of finding new life in a new love.

The title song is a celebration of the Wilson's life spirit: Ann and Nancy are fanatics about love, art, truth, and the belief that they can do anything together they set their minds to.

Heart will be touring throughout the summer and fall (June 29-November 17). Alejandro Escovedo and Shawn Colvin will be supporting in October and November. This fall, Ann and Nancy Wilson will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (followed by a live concert webcast).

The hardcover edition of 'Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock and Roll,' will be released by HarperCollins on Sept. 18th. The memoir was penned by Ann & Nancy Wilson with noted Seattle-based author Charles R. Cross ("Room Full of Mirrors - A Biography of Jimi Hendrix"; "Heavier Than Heaven" - a biography of Kurt Cobain).

Here's a podcast on the release of the Heart 'Strange Euphoria,' box set with the title track from 'Fanatic'

Soulicit is comprised of lead vocalist Darick Parson, guitarist Roll, bassist Kevin Parrow & drummer Trent Boehner. The band delivers a straight ahead, energetic, classic hard rocking sound with a sense of humor to boot. Check out the band's hilarious video below and you'll see what I'm talking about.

In September of 2011 Soulicit inked a deal with Thermal Entertainment based out of Greenville, SC. The work began immediately as the band wrapped up recording their first full length label release titled 'Parking Lot Rockstar' which is now being distributed by Megaforce. Check out entire album on the band's official website: www.soulicitrock.com

Chickenfoot posted a 10 minute video from the opening night of the Different Devil 2012 tour. Go inside the soundcheck, show and aftershow of their gig on May 4th in South Lake Tahoe, NV!

Drummer Chad Smith rejoined Chickenfoot onstage for the first time on the tour in support of their latest album, 'Chickenfoot III' on May 16th at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre. Kenny Aronoff has been handling the drumming chores due to Smith’s commitment with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Earlier in the set before Chad jammed with the band, Sammy Hagar made a passing reference to him, joking that, "if Chad was here, I’d kick his ass." After the band left the stage, a man in a Kiss t-shirt and backwards baseball cap sat down behind Aronoff’s drums. The fans then realized that it was Smith, and went nuts.

The band proceeded to jam on 'Oh Yeah’, after which Hagar turned to Smith and said, "Chad, you haven’t had this much fun all year and you know it." They then broke into a cover of Jimi Hendrix‘s 'Foxy Lady' with a bit of 'Manic Depression' thrown in. That was followed by 'Different Devil,' then a tribute to the late Ronnie Montrose with a cover of 'Rock Candy,' with Aronoff helping out on the cymbols.

Rock Picks of the Week: The Cult, Megadeth, Nickelback, Adler and Adelitas Way

by on May.13, 2012, under CD/DVD RELEASES, ROCK NEWS, ROCK PICKS, ROCK TOUR DATES, VIDEO

Rock Picks of the Week: The Cult, Megadeth, Nickelback, Adler and Adelitas Way

The Cult kick off this week's rock picks with the first track released from the new album 'Choice Of Weapon,' which will be released on May 21st. 'For The Animals' features Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy at their best and continues the distinct sound The Cult always deliver. The Cult have always had my respect, but Ian and Billy say it’s about time the band were given the respect they deserve.

In an interview in the latest issue of Classic Rock, Cult guitarist Billy Duffy claims the band have “had very little recognition”, while frontman Ian Astbury rails about “some brutal things” that have been said in the past, including uncalled for jabs against his mother. The British music industry has shunned The Cult throughout the band’s career, Astbury says. “I think Billy and I have been invited to one music awards event, which was the Kerrang! party about 10 years ago.”

Duffy adds: “Not that I picked up the guitar to win awards, but when you see the amount of shite out there that gets all these things. It’s not been the easiest of rides as The Cult. We’ve really had very little recognition, and I think we’re just destined to be one of those underground bands.”

“It doesn’t rankle with me [now],” Astbury says. “When I was younger I really cared about being accepted and being a part of it. It just didn’t go that way for us. I think we just sort of kept out in the field, so to speak. Maybe that’s just the nature of who I am. Maybe I kept us out there. Sometimes it’s nice to feel a part of what’s going on.

The singer continues: “There’s been some brutal things said about me as an individual and the band as a whole. In one article it said my mother ‘must have been sniffing glue when she gave birth’ to me. One of the worst things to do is to put down someone’s mother. Especially my mother. I watched my mother die in squalor in a Glasgow tenement. She died of cancer. That was pretty brutal. I was a young musician as well. I was in my early 20s, so getting that kind of stuff thrown at you was pretty heavy.”

“Johnny Marr [Smiths guitarist] said to me once that I almost tell it too plain,” Duffy says. “He said that he’s read interviews where I really tell it like it is, and he doesn’t necessarily know whether: A) anybody wants to hear it like it is or, B) whether that serves me as best as I should. But I don’t really know how to do it any other way.”

Astbury concludes: “It’s weird when you’re being interviewed, because you want to be as honest as you possibly can but even in the depths of yourself you’re going: ‘I can’t say that.’ There are some things you shouldn’t share. There are some things I share that are dangerous to share."

The video for 'For the Animals' reflects the socially and economically divided world that we find ourselves facing. Ian Astbury said about the clip: "'For The Animals' is a metaphor for people existing in a realm outside of structured society and what cultural editors deem to be relevant. It could be the feral punk rock kids squatting in abandoned homes or the spirited individual who has little regard for social conventions. It's for people who choose not to tow the party line or try to fit in. It's for the free-thinkers who are creative and dynamic."

The video captures the rising tensions and frustration of a growing group of disenfranchised youth. The provocative clip, from visionary director Michelle Peerali and starring hot young actress Hanna Mosqueda as the lead character, portrays the 19-year-old protagonist transforming from a lost and abandoned youth, overwhelmed by the state of the world large and at her own poor economic status and broken family at home, into an empowered strong woman who finds her inner strength in the end.

In the film clip, we see the lead character navigate a chaotic world looking for an answer only to realize in the end that what she was looking for all along was within her the whole time. "She realizes that the only solution for change is actually within her. It's about her self-awareness, inner strength, and waking her internal life, realizing she has to take command of the situation and has the power to break through," says Astbury, who appears in a cameo role along with band mates Billy Duffy (guitar), John Tempesta (drums), and Chris Wyse (bass). "In the end, she finds others who feel the same way. The message being, 'if you feel you don't fit it, it's okay. There are others out there. The tribe is there.'"

As Astbury sings in "For The Animals", the song and film clip is "for all the fucked up children staring down the barrel of a gun," a real and metaphorical image, the social, economic, and environmental cards this generation of youth has been dealt. It's a theme that is put into sharp focus by an aware Astbury on the band's new album, "Choice Of Weapon", due May 21 on Cooking Vinyl.

"Your choice of weapon can be anything you use to deal with your world. It could be self-knowledge. I think we're at a crossroads, as individuals and as a society, to define our intentions in life. What do you choose to do with your life? What do you need to really flourish? How do I not get stuck being a slave to convention? And as the character in the film clip writes on the wall, 'How many more ways will they find to reinvent boredom?'"

Megadeth have released the next single 'Whose Life (Is it Anyway)' from the album 'TH1RT3N' with a new lyric video. A song about fighting supression, keeping freedoms and individualism. Getting ready for a revolution with this one.

Here's some video of David Ellefson and Chris Broderick at PNC Center in New Jersey getting ready for the start of the co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie on May 11th.

Fast Tube

Here's the remaining dates won the Rob Zombie/Megadeth tour:
May 13 - Columbia, MD - Merriweather Post Pavilion
May 16 - Pittsburgh, PA - Stage AE
May 18 - Grand Rapids, MI - The Deltaplex
May 19 - St. Louis, MO - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre
May 20 - Columbus, OH - Rock On The Range
May 22 - La Crosse, WI - La Crosse Center
May 24 - Sioux City, IA - Tyson Center
May 25 - Wichita, KS - Hartman Arena
May 26 - Pryor, OK - Rocklahoma

Megadeth will be performing their 1992 album, 'Countdown To Extinction,' in its entirety at the Pepsi Center in Mexico City, Mexico on September 19, and at the Arena VFG in Guadalajara, Mexico on September 21. Local act RAXAS is confirmed as the support act for both shows.

Nickelback's 'This Means War' is up next. It's the third single from the 'Here And Now' album, and it is a crunchy rocker. Nickelback have now sold over 50 million albums worldwide and are the leading selling foreign group in the U.S. in the 2000's after the Beatles (they are Canadian you know). The band got their name from bassist Mike Kroeger, who was working at a Starbucks, and when giving change to customers, would say "Here's your Nickel back." Regardless of what you think of Nickelback, I'm liking the fact that they continue to make fun of the comments the haters post. They have obviously embraced and know who they are, what they do, and the niche they fill. I am not a hater and appreciate that in this digital music age, Chad Kroeger and the guys have found a way to continually put out hit songs, albums and videos, don't give a shit what anybody thinks, and on top of that will engage the haters.

Here's some recent video of the band talking hockey and Chad Kroeger's indoor ice rink. Nickelback will be performing on the NHL Awards in Las Vegas on June 20th. The band continues their current tour with Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days all summer long.
My Darkest Days have released the title track 'Sick And Twisted Affair' as their next single. The guys are following up the success of the first single form the album 'Casual Sex.', with the new video not as explicit as the last, but it definetly shows the boys in their element out on the road, documenting pre-show, during show and after-show activities at what can only be construed as a typical club date for the band. Vocalist Matt Walst, guitarist Sal Costa, keboadist/guitarist Reid Henry, drummer Doug Oliver and bassist Brendon McMillan are having a great time, and I'm sure that is continuing as the opening act on the current tour with Nickelback, Bush and Seether. The tour continues May 15th in Edmonton at the Rexall Place, with dates booked all summer long up to July 30th in Raleigh, North Carolina.

"The One That You Hated," the debut single from former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s new band, Adler is next up in Rock Picks. The video features the band performing the track while scantily-clad, heavily tattooed women dance around them.

It's a solid track from what is probably the best band Adler has put together since his departure from Guns N' Roses. "The lyrics are about two people that are no good for each other, but for whatever reason won't break up," frontman Jacob Bunton told Rolling Stone about the song. "Maybe it's the sex, maybe it's the convenience, maybe they're just scared to move on and start over, but a lot of people seem to be attracted to the people that they hate. Love and hate are intimately linked within the human brain."

Bunton added that former GN’R guitarist Slash, who makes a guest appearance on the forthcoming album, got to check out the track. "One night Slash was at the studio and we played him a couple of the songs," says Bunton. "When this song started playing, he was grinning ear to ear, so we knew either it's a kick-ass song or it's so bad we're making him laugh."

Adler’s as-yet-untitled debut album is expected to hit stores sometime this year.


Fast Tube

Las Vegas rockers Adelitas Way wrap up Rock Picks with their latest track 'Critize,' another blistering track from the 'Home School Valedictorian' album. Rick DeJesus, Tre Stafford, Keith Wallen, Robert Zakaryan, Derek Johnston have had quite the successful 2011-12 and continue it with this track. It has been out for awhile, but I am playing catch-up on some tracks, and this is one of them. They recently wrapped up the Avalanche tour, and are continuing with some headlining and festival dates until August 15th, when the guys will hook up for the kick-off of the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival with Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach, P.O.D., Fozzy, Redlight King, Deuce, Thousand Foot Krutch, Redlight King, Candlelight Red, In This Moment and Mindset Revolution.

Soundgarden post new song snippet from ‘Avengers Assemble’ soundtrack, Chris Cornell talks Rock’s decline in popularity

by on Mar.28, 2012, under CD/DVD RELEASES, INTERVIEWS, ROCK NEWS, VIDEO

Soundgarden post new song snippet from ‘Avengers Assemble’ soundtrack, Chris Cornell talks Rock’s decline in popularity

In the new issue of Details Magazine, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden offers his take on rock music’s decline in a brief Q&A. “It’s definitely lost its place at the center of the musical universe,” says Cornell. “When I was growing up in the late 70′s, everyone could identify the 5, 10 bands that formed the center. Even if you preferred the fringe – The Clash, over say Van Halen – you still knew what the center was. Now kids turn on the radio and hear Eminem or Kanye, so thats what they gravitate towards.” Check out the full Q&A below.

Q:There’s been a lot of talk recently, most of it negative, about the current state of rock music. What’s your take, is rock dead?

CC: It’s definitely lost its place at the center of the musical universe. Rock never meant the same thing to everyone, but when I was growing up in the late 70?s, everyone could identify the 5, 10 bands that formed the center. Even if you preferred the fringe – The Clash, over say Van Halen – you still knew what the center was. Now kids turn on the radio and hear Eminem or Kanye, so thats what they gravitate towards. They’re making music on iPhones. Everything’s fractured. The reason there’s no modern day Shakespeare is because he didn’t have anything to do except sit in a room with a candle and think.

Q: You’re 47. What makes you feel old these days?

CC: Topics like this. The inclination to think that the world was better when I was a kid.

Q: SG has reunited, along with nearly other band that had a video on Buzz bin during the Clinton Administration. Do you worry that people might question your motivation?

CC: Honestly, I don’t really care. People can be cynical if they want. I would never go out of my way to convince them of our sincerity. If people come to our shows, I think they’ll see it’s for the right reasons.

Q: How’s your hairline holding up?

CC: It hasn’t changed much, really. I have some gray. But my grandfather on my dad’s side, he looked like Fred Flintstone. Fred Flintstone had a GOOD head of hair.

Q: What were you like growing up?

CC: Wild. And reclusive. Sometime between 12 and 14 I smoked PCP and had a real bad reaction. By the time I was high-school age, I didn’t want to do drugs anymore, so I went a couple years without having any friends. I got in touch with the creative process between the age of 14 and 16, mainly because I was alone so much.

Q: And yet you became a frontman. Did playing music change you?

CC: I was a nerdy shut-in who listened to prog-rock and then I got on stage. Most frontmen were not born hams like David Lee Roth. We’re more like Joey Ramone: awkward geeks who somehow find our place in the world on the stage. Nobody ever said a positive thing to me, ever, in my life until they heard me play music.

Q: I bet it helped you meet girls, too.

CC: Oh yeah. Initially, I was a drummer. and I remember standing somewhere in public with a pair of drumsticks, and these cute girls came up and started talking to me. We hadn’t even played yet! It was actually uncomfortable. I thought, “Is that all I have to do? Just HOLD drumsticks?” it immediately made me not like the girls.

Q: If you’d already been a ladies’ man, maybe you wouldn’t have had a problem with that.

CC: But someone who’s already popular wouldn’t become a rock star. If you have success as a youth – for example, you’re great at baseball, you don’t have the time or inclination to be off in a corner. And I think the off-in-a-corner part, where nobody’s paying attention to you, is crucial.

Q: After SG broke up, you were a pretty serious substance abuser. What was your drug of choice?

CC: When I transitioned into adulthood – High-stakes emotional responsibilities – I did everything I could to get my hands on. It happened without me really noticing it. The thing is, when you pick up the pipe for the 1st time, you don’t know that that’s your fate. The moment isn’t that dramatic. And then that was it – I didn’t want to care anymore.

Q: No offense, but why are grunge bands’ drug stories so much more depressing than the 70?s rock gods?

CC: Right? Those bands somehow had the ability to be completely fucked up all the time and still function. They could play an amazing guitar solo even though they could barely walk. The 80?s killed that – everyone was doing coke. If you see interviews w/ some of the stars of MTV’s early years, those guys look WORKED OVER. Duran Duran? They went through hell too.

Q:Your oldest daughter is almost 12. Would you let her date a musician?

CC: It depends on the person. When I met my wife Vicki’s family, I had to go out of my way to convince them – to show them – that I wasn’t anything like their idea of a musician. But I’ve met many, MANY musicians that I wouldn’t let anywhere near my daughter. Or my son.

 

Chris Cornell has kept busy with his solo project and tour over the last couple of years, but get ready for the full return of Soundgarden this year, as they are expected to release their first new album in 16 years this fall. Soundgarden has posted a 22 second clip of the song ‘Live to Rise’ from the 'Avengers Assemble' soundtrack, which will be released just three days before the film on May 1.

Soundgarden stated in an official press release: "We've been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall.

We are excited to release our new song, which is also the only new song in the film. Here's a taste. Loudest of Love."
