The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New Jane's Addiction tune
Jane’s Addiction have a new tune out and it’s fitting to be an ear worm. The tune “Another Soulmate” is streaming online through Rolling Stone. The band is out on the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival alongside Alice in Chains, Coheed and Cambria, Danko Jones and a bunch of others.
Old one-ups new
It’s an interesting showing on the charts … a new album from Megadeth got outsold by an old album by Metallica. Megadeth’s latest attempt, Super Collider, was released two months ago but looking at the numbers the album was outsold by Metallica’s Black Album, which is 22 years old. Granted it was only by about 20 sales, but still.
A Rage return?
Could Rage Against the Machine make a comeback in 2014? Maybe not for a new album, but maybe for a show in L.A.. A post to the website for L.A.Rising Festivial says the festival, which has featured RATM last year, is in the works for August 2014. Guitarist Tom Morello keeps hinting at the band getting back together, but he also says they keep turning down amazing offers to tour the world. Keep crossing your fingers, ‘cuz anything RATM is way overdue.
Carnival is coming
Shinedown are getting ready for the Carnival of Madness and they’re brining some actual circus performers with them. They’ll be out on the road with Skillet and several other bands, but it’s unclear if Papa Roach will be with them as planned as Jacoby Shaddix has been on vocal rest. It’s reported Shaddix will be back at it in time for their show in Bloomington August 18th.
