The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New song and tour announced
With the release of the title track from their forthcoming album Hail to the King, Avenged Sevenfold have also announced a tour this fall with The Deftones and Ghost B.C. The tour kicks off in Chicago October 3rd just in time for the new album to be in the hands of fans. A7X’s new album Hail to the King drops August 27th. The new tune Hail to the King was released yesterday.
STP and Filter trek planned
Speaking of tours, Stone Temple Pilots with Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington on vocals have just announced a tour of their own. The 15 date run will be with Filter and will hit up parts of the south, east coast and New England. STP recently brought Bennington on board after an ugly falling out with original front man Scott Weiland. There are currently pending lawsuits being thrown back and forth, but STP with Bennington are showing resolve with the tour and plans for more new music.
Added to The Gathering
Things just got even more interesting if you’re an Insane Clown Posse fan. You can now add Soulfly and Sevendust to the lineup of this year’s Gathering. The annual music festival is set for August 7th through the 11th up at Hog Rock in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. Of course there’ll be the wicked clowns taking stage alongside some of their tried and true minions like Twiztid, Kotton Mouth Kings and even Vanilla Ice said to be making an appearance. It’ll be one for the record books. So all you hatchet men and ladies, make your plans today.
Five Finger Death Punch have announced a headlining tour set for this fall. The band will take to the road with Miss May and Escape the Fate. The trek will kick off September 15th in California, will snake through parts of the Southwest to eventually end up in Springfield, MO, October 20th and that’s about as close as it’ll get to Central Illinois.
