The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Lyric video posted
The song was posted then yanked and now it’s back up online with a pretty trippy lyric video—and that’s Korn’s “Never Never.” Head online to see the video, but be warned … the “video has been identified to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy … viewer discretion is advised.” The original release date for the first new album featuring Brian “Head” Welch was October 1st, but was moved back. Expect to pick up the album Paradigm Shift hits stores October 8th. Oh, and don’t forget to go listen to the song and join the chorus of critics who are already hating on the attempt.
Another [Korn] video posted online shows what’s being described as a behind-the-scenes view of a future video for the song “Love & Meth.” There aren’t many details other than the video shows some orchestra conductor loosing his stuff and contorting all kinds of crazed.
New independent album deets
You can expect some new stuff from Smile Empty Soul October 1st as the band will drop Chemicals on you. Front man Sean Danielson says the independently released album gives them a chance to keep their signature sound but to also experiment a bit. Plus, it also gave them a chance to run the campaign themselves. The band hooked up with several friends to manage and distribute the album under their newly formed company Two Disciples Entertainment. The band will be out on tour beginning next week. They’ll be in Chicago August 24th and in Bloomington August 25th.
He doesn't deserve it
The hits keep coming from Ozzy’s mouth to Bill Ward’s ego. In another interview, the Black Sabbath front man says that Ward, the original drummer, didn’t deserve an equal split of the band’s reunion money, saying he’s old. Ward was replaced in studio and on stage by Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk.
