The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The
New album and video out
Today’s the day the new album hit store shelves and to celebrate Black Sabbath have released a video for the song “God Is Dead?”. The video shows what looks like a vacant and desolate Times Square where the large TV screens are just static. Then an eye shows off some vintage Sabbath performance videos transforming into some more modern Sabbath performance videos. Eventually the video gets into some wild psychological landscapes that can’t be explained in a few sentences. You’ve gotta watch the whole thing. The video is the entire 9 minute song, not the radio edit. The album, 13, is out today and is expected to be the best hard rock album of 2013. It’s the bands first full length album with front man Ozzy in 35 years.
Won't let cancer slow him down
Def Leppard and Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell has cancer. The longtime rocker is sharing with the world that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is already well into his treatment which includes months of chemotherapy. But that is not keeping him from hitting the tour circuit. Campbell posted online about his diagnosis and his treatment and that fans will see his new “aerodynamic” hairstyle—something that is
from the cancer treatment. Def Leppard will be out overseas later this year.
More dates added
New dates have been revealed for a Queens of the Stone Age tour … but the closest they’re coming to central Illinois is during Lollapalooza un in Chicago this August. The band is out on the road touring in support of their most recent and infectious album … Like Clockwork.
