Zombie's Creepy Clown, Future Plans, and Weekend Live Music Options

Zombie's creepy clown


Dammit Rob Zombie is creepy. The horror rocker and movie director is working on a new movie called 31 and if the film is at all the level of creepy that movie poster is, it’s sure to make you cringe. The poster features the image of a evil clown. Zombie told Rolling Stone his infatuation with creepy clowns started as a child when he had to hang out with some stranger dressed as Ronald McDonald. He says clowns are very entertaining and incredibly repulsive. The script for the new film is done and now they’re gonna scope out some locations, but Zombie is crowdfunding the movie with a goal of raising $2 million. You can get all kinds of perks by donating to the production of the film. Head over to Fanbacked.com and search out Zombies profile.


Future plans


Volbeat are gearing up for a new album. In a recent interview drummer Jon Larsen laid out plans moving forward where he said when they’re done with festivals late August they’ll head back to the US and tour with Five Finger Death Punch for a few weeks and then it’s back to the UK for a tour in November. After all of that, a bit of a holiday and then work on a new album.


Weekend live music options


A whole bunch of happenings on the live shows front—up in Chicago concertgoers will get to check out Lollapalooza. That multi-day event is scheduled throughout the weekend. Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Ferrell started up the music festival over 20 years ago. This year’s lineup includes a bunch of non-rock bands like Eminem and Lorde. Wanna see a rock show? How about you instead get down to Pops in Sauget tonight were (hed) p.e. will be joined by Bound to Break and others. That show was supposed to feature Powerman 5000 but Pop’s website says they’re no longer on the event and tickets prices have been reduced. If you want to keep it local, then be sure to head downtown Springfield Friday and Saturday for the Downhome Music Beer and Art Festival. Did I mention there will be 4 stages with dozens of bands and over 100 different types of beer to choose from? See you there!

The band has been traveling the country recording in different recording studios in various cities like Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, D.C. New Orleans and elsewhere. They also have been followed around by film crews from HBO for a documentary series titled Sonic Highways. It’s unclear when the album or the documentary series will be out, but expect to see some action this November.

Another teaser


Where there was once just one, then two, three and four teasers … a fifth has been added. Head over to Slipknot’s website to get yet another bizarre and increasingly creepy teaser of the band’s forthcoming album. The latest teaser includes more graphic imagery flashed on the screen with the occasional guitar riff pumping through the speakers. Did you miss out on the other teasers? No worries. The website has a navigation at the bottom of the bottom of the page that allows you to cycle through the five different teasers. Maybe you can put them all together for a mini album, as effed up and nightmarish as that may be … There’s still no word on when the new album will come out. We’ll keep you posted.


New Flyleaf

Love Wants to Produce, More Teasers, New Box Set, and Rock's Glass Dong

Love wants to produce


Not sure if it’s a way to distract people from other films questioning her involvement in his death, but Kurt Cobain widow Courtney Love says she hopes to put out a Cobain biopic soon. In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Love says she wants to begin production on the project within the year and says she’s willing to work with her dead husband’s former band mates. Love also says she wants her daughter Frances Bean to be involved. But, this isn’t the first time Love has batted around the idea of making some Cobain centric production. She talked about making a Cobain musical. Meanwhile, another film that’s outside of Love’s control delves into the mysteries surrounding Cobain’s death, including interviews with investigators hired by Love that question how she may have been involved. Soaked in Bleach still has yet to post a release date, but it’s expected to come out some time this year.


More teasers


Another day, another teaser at Slipknot’s website. The latest footage is much longer and creepier, features some more drum elements and other ambient or ethereal sounds. Head over to Slipknot’s website where you can choose from four different teaser clips. Careful, it’s not safe for work.


New box set


Ozzy fans will have to make plans on picking up Memoirs of a Madman. That box set features a CD full of Ozzy’s greatest tunes. There’s also a DVD set with tons of the dark princes music videos, including live performances dating back to 1981. Expect to pick that box set up this October 7th.


Rock's glass dong


Kid Rock has been subpoenaed to produce a glass sex toy he got as a gift from a former Insane Clown Posse employee as part of a sexual harassment case. The Detroit Free Press reports the wrongful termination and harassment suit against ICP’s Dirty Dan Diamond includes testimony that Dirty Dan tried to give a female employee the piece only to be denied. Dirty Dan then gave it to Kid Rock. Kid Rock has 14 days to turn over the … uh, phallic in question.

Another Onstage Proposal, New Nonpoint Tune, and Corgan Finishes Recording

Another onstage proposal


It’s either really cheesy or it’s super romantic, either way it’s getting in the way of the rock! Another couple got engaged on stage at a rock show … this time it was during an Avenged Sevenfold show in Denver at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. This is a few weeks after a couple got engaged on stage during a Machine Head show. In the most recent instance at the A7X show, the groom-to-be arranged with his now-fiance to watch the band from the side of the stage. While the band took part in the ruse, the groom-to-be took his love out and proposed. Yes, there’s pro-shot video of the proposal, including that of M. Shadows talking about how they wanted to do something different and asked for a volunteer, taking the girlfriend out onto center stage, blindfolding her and then lifting the veil to the groom-to-be. It’s so sweet it makes me want to puke!





New Nonpoint tune


Ready for some new Nonpoint? The band has a video streaming online featuring the new tune titled “Breaking Skin.” This is on the heels of the revelation the band parted ways with guitarist Dave Lizzio and was replaced by BC Kochmit. The change up, and the new song are indications the new album The Return, the band’s eight studio album, will be out soon. How soon? Well, September 30th soon!



Corgan finishes recording


Speaking of new albums … Smashing Pumpkins have announced they’ve finished recording their new album Moments For an Elegy. Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan says Elegy will be the first of two albums the band plans to release and features Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee on drums. Corgan says that the album has big choruses, probing lyrics and odd twists of melody and guitars. It’s unclear when the album will be out, or what a second album will be titled or even recorded, but it’s sure to make any pumpkins fan’s day.
