The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Korn is taking to the road with Head for a headlining tour and May 25th, the band will be down at The Peabody in St. Louis. Head left the band nearly 7 years ago to clean up his life and find God. Now, after years of being away from his Korn brothers, the band welcomes him back into the band … but it isn’t permanent. Head recently said that the band is taking it slow right now, but I don’t think a slew of festival shows overseas, Rock on the Range here in the states alongside 9 different stops across the country is taking it slow. Be sure to watch Head visit Lincoln's Tomb when he was in town last week.
Buckcherry have added a few more dates to their tour. The band is out supporting their most recent attempt Confessions. They’re with Kid Rock playing a few shows in Michigan early this month. Later this month they’ll be in Australia, Japan and back to the states. Confessions is out now.
Call it a genius marketing stunt—Alice in Chains have teamed up with the celebrity produced video website Funny or Die to give fans a mockumentary titled AIC23. The 12 minute feature includes cameos from other bands like Metallica, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and more. This is all in anticipation of the band’s new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here which hits shelves May 28th. The mockumentary is the latest in a series of promotions dating way back to December when the band gave fans the single “Hallow.” A few weeks ago they released “Stone.” Now this? Well played, guys! Well played!. Watch below or at this link.
