It’s New Music Tuesday, which means you should hit up your favorite record store to pick up new stuff from The Sword and Ill Nino—both have albums that drop today! Plus, the much anticipated House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1 from Stone Sour is in stores today. If you need to preview the latest from Stone Sour, the first of a two disc concept album is available streaming online. The second part is expected out early next year with a comic book coinciding with the concept out in April of next year.
She's bowing out
Speaking of new albums, next week Flyleaf will release their album New Horizons--but there’s a bit of a shakeup with the band. The new album will be the last album from Flyleaf with their singer Lacey Sturm. She recently gave birth to her son Jack and she is reeling from the death of the band’s sound engineer Rich Caldwell who died in a tragic car accident. Sturm says she now fully understands the title of their last record Memento Mori, which means “remember your mortality. Flyleaf will continue to perform with new singer Kristen May of the band Vedera.
Blink 182’s Travis Barker is starting to feel a bit like a Juggalo and is having some problems with the police. He claims LAPD thinks he’s in a gang. He’s not in a gang, he’s in a band, but the tattoos all over his body could be confusing to law enforcement. The drummer says he’s now been pulled over twice and had his car searched for drugs and weapons. Both stops produced no contraband.
