Sabbath ain't dead
Black Sabbath have released their new single “God is Dead?” The tune comes in with a mellow beginning to then drop a dark riff just before Ozzy comes in to deliver the first Osbourne fronted Black Sabbath song in decades. Plus, the song is over 8 minutes long! Stream the tune online today. The album 13 is expected to drop June 11th. There are only a few select North American tour dates Sabbath has plotted out thus far, but we’ll keep you posted.
Device joining Gigantour
Dave Mustaine has confirmed that Device will join the band on their upcoming Gigantour tour. Mustaine made the announcement this week while talking about how Device front man David Draiman woked on a tune of Megadeth’s forthcoming album Super Colider. We’ll keep you posted on all the details.
Forget the lyric video
Just a few days ago, Alice in Chains seemed to follow suit with so many other artists who skip the music video process and posted a lyric video for the new song “Stone.” Well the band has now one-upped themselves and others by almost immediately putting out a video of the song. The video which shows the band performing mixed with some people getting some stones from strange places. Watch the video online today.
The Best Around
Halestorm are the best around at covering the Karate Kid theme song “You’re the Best Around.” Lizzy Hale and the boys covered the song while performing for a radio station out west. During the performance, Lizzy had to check her phone several times for the lyrics, and the band seemed determined to get the song’s performance on record. The original song has recently been a staple for playing when someone is seeking praise for doing everyday normal activities. Watch that performance online.
