Fear and the Nervous System has released their self titled album. That’s the side project from Korn’s guitarist—not the one that went all churchy—but the one that’s currently still with Korn … James “Monkey” Shaffer. The band features Monkey on guitar and also Korn’s keyboardist Zac Baird, Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman, Faith No More bassist Billy Gould, and Leopold Ross on guitars. It took a while to nail down a singer as the band worked on the music. Eventually they brought on Steve Krolikowski from the band Repeater and the mix is perfect! Swing by the Bishop's blog for a link to listen to the album streaming online. It’s available everywhere you can get music.
Last night’s Stone Temple Pilots show in Alberta, Canada was canceled because of Scott Weiland’s voice. Reports say he strained his vocal cords and has been put on 48 hours rest. The band intends to continue the rest of their tour which wraps up Sunday in Sacramento.
