Seeming to take a cue from Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters, Sevendust have plans to mix music and documentary with a release expected next year. The band is currently out on the road with their tour An Evening With Sevendust. That’s in support of their crowd-funded acoustic album Time Travelers & Bonfiers which is out now. It’s now being announced parts of the current tour will be filmed in New York City where they will perform acoustic at first and then they’ll crank on the distortion. Production is already underway. A set release date has yet been announced.
It’s the people’s music
Phil Anselmo is talking about a Pantera reunion, something the drummer Vinnie Paul has dismissed time and again. Anselmo performed at the recent Download Festival where he hooked up on stage with Pantera bassist Rex Brown. The two performed a couple of different Pnatera tunes in two different sets. Afterwards, Anselmo talked with Metal Hammer and said that the prospect of a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar is interesting, but there are some personal things they would need to address, things that can’t be done without everyone’s cooperation. But he say as soon as he knows something, quote “the rest of you f**king a**holes will know something”. Anselmo also says that Pantera music is the people’s music and they if they want to hear it again, they should be given that chance. Vinnie Paul, whose got Hellyeah out supporting a new album, has long dismissed the possibility of reuniting Pantera.
Megadeth are back in the studio working on new material. Bassist David Elefson posted a pick to the band’s Facebook page showing himself and Dave Mustaine on their respective instruments sitting in front of a sound board. The message simply says they’re working on some new riffs, having fun and keeping it chill. He also says they are merely writing demos, but there’s more to come.
