The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
You’re doing it wrong
Lollapalooza doesn’t quite understand how April Fools day is supposed to work. Instead of posting a completely made up lineup of fictitious bands like Bill and Ted’s Wild Stallions and others, the Chicago festival organizers instead chose to release the official lineup on Apirl Fools. This is after over the weekend the Chicago Tribune reported on a leaked festival poster with all the bands named, including Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and others. The official announcement was supposed to be April 9th, but they clearly jumped the gun. Make plans to attend the three days of Music August 2nd through the 4th.
Southern hemisphere song premier
Speaking of Lollapalooza, one of the featured artists to play in Chicago is Queens of the Stone Age. Their new album will be out by the time they take the stage, but down at Lollapalooza Brazil, the band premiered the new tune “My God is the Sun.” Pro-shot video of that performance is available online.
Appearing on new album
The forthcoming Megadeth album will have a special guest, Disturbed front man David Draiman. A Twitter message from Draiman dropped the bomb and Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine quickly confirmed via the social media network that Draiman lent his voice on the tunes “Forget to Remember” and “Dance in the Rain.” The album Super Collider comes out June 4th.
New album teaser
Chaos-core metalers The Dillinger Escape Plan has released a preview of their forthcoming album. The band’s most recent attempt “One of Us is the Killer” exemplifies their unique sound of quick changing riffs with a mix of melody and blood curdling screams. The 6 ½ minute trailer will surely wet your appitite for the new album which comes out May 14th. The Dillinger Escape Plan headlines the Summer Slaughter Tour which is set to kick off July 19th. Dates and venues have yet to be announced.
