The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
B sides coming soon
Lars is gonna get chubs for this … Rise Against is set to release a disc full of b-sides and cover tunes. Coming up September 10th this year, fans will be able to get their hands on Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers, 2000-2013. The album will feature a bunch of tunes that previously haven’t been available on any other albums. It will also include some cover tunes. Front man Mark McIlrath says they’re super-duper proud of the 26 songs that have slipped through the cracks. Watch a promo below:
Slash is taking a stab at producing music for a motion picture and it’s only appropriate the movie is a horror flick. Slash scored the film and alongside that score will be two original songs for the motion picture. He didn’t just score the film, he also produced it. The psychological thriller Nothing Left to Fear hits theaters October 4th, the same day the soundtrack comes out.
And in obvious news … noise was an issue at a rock festival. Reports indicate that there were two dozen noise complaints logged against the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Bangor, Maine, this week. According to the Bangor Daily News, a dozen complaints were reported to police and the rest were given to a top city official. The crazy thing is, the headliner, Rob Zombie finished up his set at like 10:15.
First live DVD
Speaking of Rob Zombie, he plans on releasing the first ever Rob Zombie live DVD. Guitarist John 5 recently told AbsolutePunk.net that the band will capture its current live show for the release. There’s no timeline when that’ll be available.
First live performance
And speaking of live video—A new video has surfaced online of Avenged Sevenfold performing their new tune “Hail to the King.” Apparently it’s the first time the band has performed the tune out in public. A bunch of lucky fans at the recent Rock USA Festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
