The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Released then yanked and delayed
The latest from Korn was revealed to the world for a short time yesterday, but was then yanked off the internet … and with the questionable single release comes word that the album is being pushed back. The track “Never, Never” from the forthcoming album Paradigm Shift made limited rounds before it was taken down yesterday. You may have heard it on the Daily Download. Either way, good luck trying to find it online. Some critics say it’s less dub-step and more “Head.” QLZ has it in our library, so be sure to request it today if you wanna hear a glimpse of what the first Korn album featuring guitarist Brian “Head” Welch sounds like. As for the release date of the new album, it was originally slated to come out October 1st, but has been pushed back a week.
If you were planning on seeing Papa Roach down in South America, you’re gonna have to make other plans. Front man Jacoby Shaddix is suffering from vocal chord problems yet again and that’s caused the band to call off their South American tour. Now, it’s not that Shaddix is just looking to skip out on things. He’s just following doctors orders who put him on strict vocal rest. With apologizes to fans saying he’s not a machine, Shaddix is expected to make a full recovery.
Downtime after surgery
Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante is rocking more than just the drums … he’s also rocking a cast, though I’m not sure if it’s at the same time. The drummer is recovering from surgery on his right hand. He posted a photo of his injured hand saying he’s dealing with carpal tunnel. He also says he wants to be behind the set when Anthrax plays San Bernardino, CA, September 13th.
