The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Korn added to ShipRocked
Korn will have to get their sea legs ready as they’ve been added to co-headline ShipRocked. Last year’s ShipRocked cruise featured Jonathan Davis’ DJ set and he says the whole thing was great so he helped spur on Korn’s appearance this year. The heavy metal cruise will feature other heavyweights of rock including Godsmack, P.O.D., Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Filter, Fuel, Black Stone Cherry, Helmet and others. Voyagers will set out to sea November 27th from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to the Bahamas and then back. If the boat is rockin’, it’s more than likely ShipRocked!

Primus' psychedelic tour
Primus is taking to the road this fall to support their latest attempt Green Naugahyde. Les Claypool and the band say it’s “the first-ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical performance” with a “one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience.” That sounds enticing! Aside from feeling like you’re tripping at the show, the band also plans to play two sets per evening, so you’ll get a double dose of Primus. More details on the upcoming tour will be released July 30th.
City of Fire streams tunes
A side project from the front man of Fear Factory has a few new song available to stream online. City of Fire is made up of Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell, 3 Inches of Blood’s Byron Stroud, Terry Murray and Bob Wagner. You can stream “Deliver Me,” “Carve Your Name,” “Bad Motivator,” and “Rain” on the band’s Facebook page. A City of Fire album is expected out later this year.
