Clockwork Angles released
It’s new music Tuesday! In stores today you’ll be able to find Rush’s first album in 5 years, Clockwork Angels. But, it’s an acquired taste. Even front man Geddy Lee says that if you like Rush, you’ll love the album. If you don’t, then “you’re in hell.” The band has been trying to put out Clockwork Angels for years but had problems with record companies … probably trying to screw them out of some money. Anyways, you can listen to a 50 minute interview with the members of Rush conducted by Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan where the band talks about the new album in detail.
We’re getting closer to the release of Slipknot’s greatest-hits collection Antennas to Hell. To celebrate the release July 24th, the band is also making an app available that will allow you to build your own mask and connect with other Slipknot fans. The app will be available when the greatest-hits is released.
