The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New song teased with release of album cover
The album cover for Black Sabbath’s forthcoming album 13 isn’t really anything to write home about now that it’s been revealed—it’s just the number 13 on fire. What’s worth writing home about is the video showing the number 13 burning in reverse with a snippit of a new Sabbath song! Sabbath, excluding drummer Bill Ward, got back together with Ozzy for the first time in years and have been hammering out a new album. The release date is expected June 11th.
Hawkins (right) as Iggy Pop
Silver screen time
Foo Fighter’s drummer Taylor Hawkins has picked up a new gig … this time he’s acting in a movie about the famed New York night club CBGB. In the movie, Hawkins plays Iggy Pop. The first photo of his portrayal is circulating online. The film expected out sometime next year.
He’s on a hiatus with the band that put him on top of the rock world and now Disturbed’s David Draiman is getting involved in all kinds of projects. His new side project Device has caught the attention of the industry and now he’s ready to show off his production skills. In an interview with Loudwire, Draiman says he’s working with Trivium on what could be their defining moment. He’s only tweaking their nobs for the record. He’s not a guest vocalist or anything. No word yet on when that album will be out, but Device hits shelves this coming Tuesday.
Be listening later on today when Ray Lytle interviews Brent from Shinedown. Surely they’ll talk about the band out on the road touring and also the upcoming 20th Birthday Bash for QLZ featuring Airbourne, Bush and Shinedown May 7th at the Prairie Capital Convention Center (tickets on sale now).
