Alternative rock outfit The Nearly Deads have announced dates for 'The Survival Tour," running March 8 - 21.  Kicking off in Milwaukee, with a co-headlining slot at the inaugural LIAN Riot Music Series, the band then synchs up with Providence, RI rockers It Lives, It Breathes, from March 9 - 21, as they storm Chicago, Allentown, Baltimore, Springfield, Harrisonburg and other cities along the East coast. The band then returns home...
As I approached the iconic marquee in front of The Metro in Chicago last night, I realized something: I hadn't been to a show there in a very long time. During the mid-late 90s (and even into the early 00s), The Metro was a regular haunt for me - a place to check a host of metal, industrial, punk,...
I'm really digging CHERRI BOMB, and I think by the end of 2012, a lot of people will be feeling the same way. Hollywood Records sent over their 2011 STARK EP last week along with an advance copy of their forthcoming album THIS IS THE END OF CONTROL, and believe me - this L.A.-based group of teenage female rockers...
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...
CREED BRATTON rocks. From his days as a member of THE GRASS ROOTS to his hilarious version of himself on NBC's THE OFFICE, Creed has experienced some ups-and-downs in his lifetime, including time spent on the unemployment line. Now, Bratton has released a three-part "audiobiography" entitled, TELL ME ABOUT IT (on iTunes now), and has released a video for "Unemployment...
One of my favorite guitarists of all-time is PAGE HAMILTON, and that should come as no surprise seeing as his band HELMET is one of my top five favorite bands of all-time. Hamilton has also been involved in the art game for a bit, and on May 1st, "A Monumental Art Collection from Page Hamilton" will launch, and it's...
So, last July, I'm headed for the exit at McCormick Place in Chicago when a rep from Daily's Cocktails snags me and tells me that there's something I need to see... a "free concert," she tells me. I've got time, so I follow her lead into a cavernous ballroom (this place is massive) where the name SIDNEY YORK is...
As some of you might know, I co-manage PRODUCT OF HATE (disclosure and all), and these past few months have been busy - but it's about to get busier. This week, we're finally able to drop the curtain on the details for the next big round of touring, and it happens in two legs this May-July. PRODUCT OF HATE...
ANTHRAX is closing out the week with the surprise release of the first single and lyric video from their forthcoming new album. "Evil Twin" (available now on Amazon & iTunes) takes on the political and religious extremism of recent years, an old-school throwback that comes off as a thematic companion to songs such as Megadeth's "Holy Wars." "We had...
I'm still not 100% sure what to think about THE GORBURGER SHOW. In a lot of ways, the new show from The Warner Sound and Funny Or Die reminds me of the old VHS GWAR videos from the early 1990s.  What's it about? "Gorburger - an alien from outer space - has invaded and taken a Japanese news network...
