A couple of "years" are hitting the road together for "The High Octane Tour." Charlotte, NC's ANOTHER LOST YEAR hit The Rock Father with details on April-June run of dates on which they'll join THREE YEARS HOLLOW (from my old stomping grounds in the Quad Cities). Check out the admat below for dates, and hit both bands on Facebook (names linked previously) to stay up-to-date.
BEN FOLDS LIVE was released back in 2002 (I bought it when it came out, and still have it here at Rock Father HQ), but until now, there had never been an actual BEN FOLDS FIVE LIVE album. That changes on June 4th with the release of the official live album, BEN FOLDS FIVE LIVE (ImaVeePee/Sony Music Entertainment). Recorded in 2012-2013 during their first tour in over a decade, the new record will give listeners a preview of what to expect whent the band hits the road with BARENAKED LADIES and GUSTER for the LAST SUMMER ON EARTH 2013 Tour.
Just days after revealing the tracklisting and cover art (see it here) for their forthcoming album "13," BLACK SABBATH has announced a handful of U.S. Tour Dates. Tickets for these shows will go on-sale on April 20 via Livenation, but fans can hit this link to RSVP for early-access to pre-sale tickets available Thursday, April 18. Dates below.
Two (maybe three?) years ago, I was invited to a small (really small) place in Chicago called the "AAA Warehouse" to check out MARKY RAMONE'S BLITZKRIEG doing a full-blown set of THE RAMONES' greatest hits. This place - which looked like a defunct gas station or something - was one of the most "punk rock" venues I'd ever stepped into - and the show was absolutely insane. While Michale Graves was handling vocals that night, those looking for a dose of BLITZKRIEG in 2013 will have a surprising new voice on the mic... ANDREW W.K.
I've been meaning to post this for ages, but it's one of those examples of getting so buried in emails that it kept getting pushed down and lost... but it's a FREE DOWNLOAD from GEMINI SYNDROME, and I dig it. The band just-wrapped a tour with MUSHROOMHEAD and has some festival dates booked for the summer, but in the meantime, they'll be heading out with DEVICE for some dates in April. Stream "Pleasure and Pain" below, and be sure to snag the download as well.
