They're Not Metal, Crowd Funded Concert, and Pumpkin Smashed


They’re not metal

 

It’s New Music Tuesday, so be sure to get out there and support rock music … or metal … or whatever! Out today is Linkin Park’s The Hunting Party. The band has released several tunes from the album online, including several full fledged videos. And in case you’re wondering, Linkin Park is not a metal band. Chester Bennington recently came out on the Metal Hammer radio show to say that distinction is something they wanted to make clear early on. Bennington says there are elements of the band that are pop, duh … that are electronic, uh, double duh … and that are hip-hop, triple duh. Bennington says that the band was labeled “nu-metal” when they first came out. Linkin Park will be out on tour later this year with a show at Tinley Park August 29th.

 

Crowd funded concert

 

Who says that rock stars don’t look out for the little people? A crowd funding campaign that sold tickets to a concert that didn’t yet exist sounds like a horrible idea, but that’s exactly what happened in Richmond, Virginia. Well, organizers reached their goal, something Foo Fighters took notice. That means the band will be headed to Richmond, for the first time since 1999. 1,400 tickets were sold for the concert. If Foo Fighters didn’t agree to perform, there would have been a full refund.

 

Pumpkin smashed

 

And another shakeup at Team Smashing Pumpkins: Billy Corgan has acknowleged that drummer Mike Byrne quote “has left the building.” This makes sense, if you remember not long ago Corgan talked about brining on Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee to record some tracks for an upcoming disc. The new album Monuments to an Elegy expected out early next year with a few singles pushed out later this year.
