Be listening today at around 11 when QLZ will air the first radio single from Slipknot’s new album. We got our hands on it over the weekend and we’re the only station in town that, as Styles said, has the brass to play it! The tune “The Devil in I” is a tad bit more approachable to the mainstream than the other tune Slipknot released online titled “The Negative One”. That doesn’t mean there are driving guitars and pumping drums in addition to front man Corey Taylor’s guttural screams … there’s just not as much as can be found in “The Negative One”. Any Slipknot fan will appreciate the dichotomy between the two songs. Also, any Slipknot fan is surely salivating for the new album which is expected to drop sometime this October. Can't wait to hear it on air, check it out below:
Saving Able at Coz's
Saving Able took the stage at Coz’s Pizza Sunday, the first Springfield show from the band with new singer Scott Austin. Openers Royal Bliss warmed the crowd up, despite the temps pushing well into the 90s late Sunday afternoon. Coz’s then hosted Saving Able in fine style with an outdoor show on the west side of town. Stay with 92.7 WQLZ for updates on future shows in and around town.
They keep going
Just how long can AC/DC continue? As long as they’re alive. That’s according to AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd. The band’s future was called into question when it was reported founding guitarist Malcolm Young was ill and not continuing with the band. Then news broke the band was recording a new album without Young. Now Phil Rudd tells Australian TV that “we’ll probably all have to be dead before it stops.” That’s what you call dedication. Rudd confirmed that there will be another tour. He also doubly confirmed that there will be another album. Both of which he’ll be on. However, Rudd does have a side job set to release a new album August 29th.
No facelift for The Faceless’ tour van after the band smashed into a moose in Canada. The van is totaled. Thankfully nobody was injured. The status of the moose, however, is unknown. The Faceless finish up their tour on the now ironically dubbed “Summer Slaughter” tour. Guess they didn’t think they’d actually slaughter a moose on the tour, but hey! Makes for a great story!
