The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Big rock week
It’s a big week for rock fans in Springfield as we prepare for two big shows at Boondocks. Wednesday it’s Pop Evil with Otherwise for a 21+ show. Tickets are available at Boondocks (or online). Tickets are only $10, which makes it a low dough show … fo’ sho’. Then Thursday at Boondocks, All Hail the Yeti with Brian “Head” Welch’s band Love and Death joining In This Moment on stage! Tickets for that show are only $15 (available at Boondocks or online)! Be sure to be listening to Springfield’s Concert Leader 92.7 QLZ to win tickets and meet and greet with In This Moment! Also, don’t miss out on In This Moment’s Maria Brink appearing with Lars and Lytle later today! Plus, we’ll have in-studio guests and performances later this week. All of this is a way to ring in 92.7 QLZ’s 20th Birthday Celebration. See you at Boondocks this week!
New album at some point
System of a Down’s drummer John Dolmayan has come out with some much welcomed news for SOAD fans … there will be a new album … at some point. Dolmayan told a radio station out west that the band will put out a new album … it just has to be the right time. Until then, SOAD fans will just have to hear about them playing live shows in far away lands.
Solid release date
Alice in Chains have released more details about their forthcoming album – the second with new singer William Duval. Details have been slow to trickle out from the band, but we now have a solid date and track listing. Expect The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here out May 28th. Guitarist Jerry Cantrell says that the title of the album indicates it’s gonna be a critique of modern day religious zealots who portray themselves as accepting, loving and caring but tend to show bigotry, intolerance and greed instead. A new single from the album named “Stone” is expected out tomorrow.
