The first single from David Draiman's side Device has leaked online (listen below or at this link). The tune "Vilify" was posted on a YouTube video over the weekend. Draiman even acknowledged the leak on his own Twitter page where he said ... it's out there, may as well share it. The tune is heavy on the synth, drum machine and beefy guitar, and will definitely be welcomed by fans of Disturbed. As for Disturbed’s future, Draiman posted about the band, simply saying that they’re on hiatus, which is an extended break … not a break up. The self-titled album from Device hits stores April 9th.
Five Finger Death Punch are hinting at a summertime release for their next album. A series of Instagram photos posted by guitarist Zoltan Bathory came with messages that the band was back in the studio cutting some new tracks. One message said the album would be called ... and then left it blank. FFDP guitarist Jason Hook revealed a while back that the band has a recording rig they take with them on tour that allows them to put ideas down. He equated making music to going to the gym ... you've gotta keep exercising, he says. There still no firm date on a new album, but it's expected out sometime this summer.
Hijinks caught on camera
The new video from Halestorm is making the rounds (watch below or at this link) and it shows what it's like for the band as they travel on the road. "Freak Like Me," the latest single, shows the band on stage, backstage, and on the bus, with plenty of hijinks during their downtime. Having just come off a Grammy win, the band is looking for some springtime shows joining Bullet for my Valentine for the HardDrive Live tour Beginning in April.
