The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New NIN this year
We've been lied to by rockstars in the past, but this time I don't mind ... Nine Inch Nails will indeed be releasing new material ... THIS YEAR!!! In a post from Trent Reznor Tuesday on the Nine Inch Nails tumbler page, text says "I have been less than honest" and that there will be new Nine Inch Nails this year. It was originally reported months ago that Reznor would only be releasing one new song for some best of they were obligated to do. That was bogus. Reznor now says that he's been keeping his creativity flowing with other projects at the same time he's been working with Alan Moulder and production partner Atticus Ross on new NIN. He also goes on to say that the work so far is really effin' good and personally I'm giddy as a school girl! There's no official release date or title yet, but we're anxiously watching for the latest update.
Big concert announcement yesterday ... if you missed it, the announcement unites four rock giants from four different countries. QLZ will have tickets before you can buy them to the Rock Allegiance Tour. Be sure to listen for a chance to Beat the Box Office and get tickets to see Volbeat, Him, All that Remains and Airborne. They'll be at the US Cellular Coliseum August 29th. Tickets go on sale Saturday at all Ticketmaster locations.
Streaming ... Like Clockwork
Also on Tuesday, Queens of the Stone Age offered up their new album to stream in its entirety online through iTunes. The band has been doing a very timely job of teasing fans for the eventual release haveing put out a total of five different animated videos piecing together a narrative of four characters being cut down at their prime only to be rejuvinated by a cosmic ray from a giant scull with wings. The 10-song album ... Like Clockwork comes out June 4th.
