The new Buckcherry album is streaming online. You can hear Confessions online through AOL’s NoiseCreep. With the release of the album this week comes with it an announcement that the band will do three different days at a small exclusive venue in LA, their hometown. Currently, they’re out on tour with Kid Rock. They’ll be in Bloomington March 28th at the US Cellular Coliseum.
It's a NASCAR
HellYeah is looking for some fans to sponsor their NASCAR car … and your pockets don’t have to be very deep. The driver, Jeremy Clements, is planning on painting the Band of Brother album cover on the hood of his car and fans can get their names on the decals … to sweeten the pot even more, fans will be able to get a digital copy of single, digital posters, and a discount to Hellyeah shows. Plus, there’s a chance at an even bigger prize. The car will be driven April 26th in Richmond.
This year’s Record Store Day is coming up April 20th. That’s the day that independent music stores, which are becoming few and far between with the advent of digital music, will offer up some special items only available through those venues. This year, Jack White has been named the ambassador. It’s said that he will invigorate the idea that there’s beauty and romance in the act of visiting a record shop and getting turned on to something new. Typically there are a ton of offerings from a variety of artists spanning musical genres available on Record Store Day.
Over two decades
It’s hard to believe that Rage Against the Machine’s debut album is over 20 years old … but that becomes more believable when you see the old school footage of in-store concert from 1992. The video shows the band, 20 years younger than they are now, at record store performing 8 songs from their debut. The 40 minute video is available online.
