Metallica looking forward to the next album
Headed to the studio soon
It may be a while, but Metallica is hinting that they’re gonna hit up the studio. Guitarist Kirk Hammet told RollingStone.com that the band will be headed to the studio “soon” for an album that’s expected out sometime 2014. He says they’re still occupied dealing with the forthcoming 3D movie, but once that project is complete, Hammet says they’ll hunker down and put together more legendary riffs.
New videos out now
On the video front, there are a couple of new releases you should know about. Firstly, Marilyn Manson has released the video for “Hey Cruel World.” The video is your typical black-and-white film with close ups using a distorted lens. It appears the video was shot in front of an audience. Manson will be in St. Louis with Rob Zombie October 5th. Meanwhile Nonpoint has released the video for their new tune “Left For You.” The video shows the band rehearsing in an empty theater. Their new self titled album drops next week and the band will be in Springfield with Taproot this Saturday at Boondocks.
Speaking of new albums—Papa Roach’s new album is streaming on AOL. You can now listen online to all thirteen tracks of the album The Connection which is due out in stores today. If you like it, go pick it up!
Finally, after 20 years, Axl Rose plans a live TV interview! That train wreck is expected on the Jimmy Kimmel Show October 24th. I’m putting that in my calendar now.
