Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
Remember that Ugly Kid Joe EP Stairway To Hell we told you about last week, well the whole thing is now streaming online. You’ll be able to download the six-song EP June 5th and if you’re still living in the stoned aged, ‘er stone-age, then you can pick it up in stores July 9th.
The new lineup of Nonpoint performed for fans for the first time since reforming. The band performed at the Rockford Speedway in Rockford, Illinois on Sunday. Nonpoint added three members from a Chicago-based band and just wrapped up recording a new album in Chicago that will be released later this year. Fan-shot video of the band performing the new song “I Said It” is available online.
Rock in Rio
Mastodon, Evanescence and even Metallica performed at Rock in Rio over the holiday weekend. Rock in Rio is spread throughout a handful of days. The heavier dose of rock was May 26th. There was another heavy shot May 27th featuring Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit and Smashing Pumpkins. Several more shows lined up for June 1st, 2nd and 3rd, but those have a more sedate lineup.
Video of cover
Oh, and if you dug Godsmack’s cover of Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way,” the video is now available online. Check it out here. The song comes off the Godsmack 2-disc live album Live and Inspired that was released earlier this month.
