The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Movie release date set
We’ve got details on the forthcoming 3D Metallica movie! The film, which has been rumored for well over a year, will hit theaters in August of this year. Titled Metallica Through The Never, fans will be able to experience Metallica in concert a way never before attempted on the silver screen … in three-dimensions. There’ll be concert footage mixed with a storyline featuring the band’s back stage antics and another storyline featuring actor Dane Dahann. A release from the band says that Dane’s character is a stage hand sent out on a mission during a sold out Metallica show only to find that his world is turned upside down. The movie is directed by Nimrod Antel who directed the 2010 version of Predator. The release date is August 9th.
POD is set to play the halftime show this weekend for the NFL’s match-up between the Falcons and the 49er’s. Catch the game on FOX. Check your local listings for game times. The band will hit the road with Three Days Grace and Shinedown February 1st up in Moline, Illinois.
"Gluttony" video online
An unedited video for Buckcherry’s tune “Gluttony” has been released and it’s just as over the top as you’d think a Buckherry song about excessive consumption would be. The video shows the band performing on stage at a church with a huge cross behind them. The church is filled with guys and gals acting as if they’re at some big evangelical revival … but it’s a Buckcherry concert and there’s booze and pills all over the place. The tune is on the forthcoming album Confessions, an album about the so-called seven deadly sins and other faults that makes us all human. Expect the new album out February 13. The video is available online now (watch below or follow this link).
On the charts
As expected, Hollywood Undead and Black Veil Brides got the hook up on the Billboard charts this week. They’re joined by the likes of Dropkick Murphys. Hollywood Undead’s latest album Notes from the Underground landed at No. 2 with 53,000 copies sold. Black Veil Brides landed at No. 7 with their album Wretched and Divine and Dropkick Murphys new album Signed and Sealed in Blood landed at No. 9.
