Prime-time premier on finale
Sabbath on stage for CBS's CSI
CSI, the TV show, is giving people a real reason to watch during sweeps. Black Sabbath will premier a new tune on the prime-time cop drama show for the finale next month. A press release from CBS states that the band, featuring all the original members except drummer Bill Ward, will perform the song “The Beginning of the End” on the season finale. In the show, several cop characters attend a Sabbath show to gather evidence on some string of murders linked with Dante’s Inferno. Producers for the show say it only made sense that for the finale of the 13th season feature a new song from Black Sabbath’s forthcoming album 13, which is expected out June 11th. The episode airs May 15th.
More trouble in camp Weiland … While out on tour, the former Stone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland had a bit of a shakeup in his solo act as the drummer stepped down. Drummer Danny Thomas posted on Facebook that he quit because as a matter of self worth and that he wouldn’t elaborate.
Killswitch Engage are set to hit the road in support of their new album Disarm the Dissent. They’ll have a show down at Pops in Sauget June 18th and then up at Mojoes in Joliet July 8th. The first album with original singer Jesse Leach debut on the charts at No. 7.
