AIC drops new album
The much anticipated album from Alice In Chains, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here is out today. The album is the second with new front man William Duvall who fronts the band years after original singer Layne Staley passed away. AIC has been teasing the new album for months, first with the release of the tune “Hollow” which was highlighted by the video featuring a space man in isolation. Then they gave us the sludge-filled tune “Stone,” which also came with a bizarre video. Now fans will surely be listening to the
new record on repeat. Be sure to pick up The Devil Put Dinosaurs today.

Lawsuit filed against Weiland
There’s more trouble on the Stone Temple Pilots front as the lawsuits start flying. Earlier this year, just as original singer Scott Weiland was taking to the road on his solo tour, the band put out a statement that Weiland was no longer with the band. At that time, Weiland said that it wouldn’t be STP without him, because he started the band. Then, last weekend, it was revealed that the remaining STP members were working and performing both in studio and on stage with Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. Bennington revealed that he plans to touring with the band, but there’s no word on when that’ll be. Now the remaining members of STP say in a lawsuit filed Friday that Weiland is trying to damage their livelihood and sabotage their 20th anniversary tour. The lawsuit states that a member can be fired for “grossly negligent performance or failure of performance of material duties, repeated late or non-appearances,” something the remaining members say happened. The band is seeking monetary damages and an injunction to keep Weiland from profiting at the band’s expense.
