PRIMUS hit The Rock Father with further details and the full run of dates for their forthcoming 3D Fall Tour. In addition to featuring two sets per evening, ''the first-ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical performance'' will ''provide a one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience, further enhanced by the fact that every show will also feature Quad Surround Sound. Primus teamed with 3D Live from Burbank, CA to create original 3D content for this tour. Audience members will be given 3D glasses in order to fully experience a visual and audio performance like no other.'' Full tour dates are below.
When the members of a band come from such groovalistic heavy rockers as CLUTCH, FU MANCHU, CKY, and FIREBALL MINISTRY, it's a safe bet that what they'll be creating something of quality - provided you're already a fan of the source artists. When the band in question is THE COMPANY BAND, you can bet that customer service is a high priority in the interest of providing listeners with a top product at a fair price. On their latest EP, PROS & CONS (out now on Weathermaker Music), THE COMPANY BAND proves that to be true.
On September 11, 2012, one of my favorite bands of the 1990's will see a reissue of their major-label debut on 180 Gram Vinyl. ShopRadioCast will handle the reissue of the 1993 QUICKSAND album, SLIP, in it's first pressing since the initial run 19 years ago. Check out the full details and tracklisting below.
I still have my original copy of ANDREW W.K.'s landmark album, I GET WET, so it's hard to believe that it's been a decade since it was first released. To think of how much has happened in that time is astounding, but alas, time has flown. On August 28, Century Media will release the 10th Anniversary Edition of that album on Deluxe CD and Double-Gatefold Vinyl, and today I've got the tracklisting and package art to share with you here on The Rock Father...
Having covered THE DIRTY HEADS at length on the last site I worked for, I've long-respected the band while not necessarily getting into them. Despite loving surf rock, I'm not a big 'beach' guy, and that's probably what kept them at a distance. I tend to skip the Jimmy Buffett and leave the Sublime with Rome to someone else. With the release of THE DIRTY HEADS' latest album, CABIN BY THE SEA (out now in standard and deluxe editions), something hit me and became very clear: their sun-drenched, beach-infused vibes are irresistible.
