Welcome to the Stage, Walmart Exclusive, Topping the Charts and New Video

The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station


Welcome to the stage


Alice In Chains aren’t letting a dispute with former singer Layne Staley’s mom get in the way of staying in touch with his father. During a show in Canada the band welcomed Layne’s father Phil on stage to a very welcoming Canadian crowd. Back in May Layne’s mom Nancy McCallum field suit in Seattle claiming the band is scrimping her form royalties. The band denied that and said she’s been paid more than she’s due.


Walmart exclusive

Sick Puppies are going all mainstream on everyone by recording a concert video for Walmart to coincide with their new album. The band was in LA to do the show for Walmart’s Soundcheck Risers website. Their new album Connect will be out July 16th. The performance for Walmart will appear on the Soundcheck Risers website the day before. Despite the move, bassist Emma Anzai is still smokin’ hot!


Topping the charts


Rock had a great showing on the billboard charts with several albums landing on the top 25 for the first week of sales. Topping rockers was Skillet at No. 4 with their latest album Rise. The band plans to hit the road with the Carnival of Madness Tour this August. Meanwhile August Burns Red landed in the top 10 with their best charted album to date Rescue & Restore. They’ll be out on Warped Tour this summer. If Swedish death metal is your thing, you’re not alone … Amon Amarth’s latest attempt landed at No. 19. And despite the uncertainty of how the new Queensryche would fare, the band pulled away with a No. 23 spot for their self-titled album. Meanwhile Pop Evil landed at No. 1 with their single “Trenches”

from the album Onyx.


New video


Megadeth have unleashed their latest video fro the tune “Super Colider.” The band is preparing to hit the road with the Gigantour featuring Device, Newsted and Megadeth with a few others here and there.
