The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New video and album update
How to Destroy Angles has released another video and an update on when a full length album will be out. Most of what Trent Reznor’s project with wife Mariqueen and production partner Atticus Ross have put out may be a bit mellow for some of you metal heads out there. But for die-hard Reznor fans, you may want to check out the latest video (view below or at this link) and song from How to Destroy Angels. “The Loop Closes” has the feel of a dark and catchy Nine Inch Nails song, just with Trent joined in vocals by his wife. You can listen to the new song on the group’s latest EP An Omen, which was release several weeks ago. The full length album Welcome to Oblivion is due out March 5th.

Vinnie Paul with the Pawn Star
A couple of groups that haven’t seen much of the Billboard Charts, could get some time in the top ten come next week. Hollywood Undead and Black Veil Brides are set to have albums crack onto the charts with tens of thousands of sales in the first week. Hollywood Undead’s Notes From the Underground is projected to sell 50,000 copies, which could land it on the top ten. Their last album debuted at No. 4 with over 67,000 copies sold. Black Veil Brides’ album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones could sell 40,000 copies in the first week putting it in the top ten. Their last album landed at No. 17 on the charts. Good luck, guys!
He's a Pawn Star
Vinie Paul is set to make a cameo appearance on an upcoming episode of Pawn Stars. The History Channel show follows around a Los Vegas pawn store as they wheel and deal in antiquities and old crap from people’s garages. Paul will be on the show trying to sell his Recreational Vehicle. There’s no word on when that will be released.
