Korn’s new album drops October 8th but shortly before that the band will taking to the stage at a few venues across the country as they’ve announced a short headlining jaunt. The band will be touring with Asking Alexandria and Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s band Love and Death. Head broke away from the band over seven years ago but joined back up with the band earlier this year. The new album is the first to feature Head in 10 years. Korn will be in Chicago at The Riviera Theater October 2nd. Paradigm Shift drops in stores October 8th.
Playing the Apollo
Speaking of playing shows, Metallica will play the epic Apollo Theater in New York. They’ll be promoting their upcoming 3D concert-action film Metallica Through the Never. The Apollo show is scheduled for September 21st. The movie will be in theaters across the country September 27th. Before that, film critics will get a crack at it when it airs at the Toronto Film Festival September 9th.
They’re getting old and beat up and will soon have to hang it up … that’s my assessment of Motley Crue, but what does front man Vince Neil have to say about the band’s future? Neil is making the rounds saying the band will be done in 2014 or 2015. Before then, they’ll do another residency in Las Vegas and may release some more new music. Neil says the band wants to go out on top. But, 30 years of rock may be taking its toll … especially on guitarist Mick Mars who suffers from an acute form of arthritis … Neil says touring can take a toll on Mars. In spite of that, Neil says he’s got some solo stuff he’s working on.
Revealed signing bonus
In light of the upcoming release of the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero album, it’s been revealed that when the band signed on with Sub Pop records, they got an amazing signing bonus of $600. My how times have changed! The box set of In Utero featuring nearly 90 songs drops next month.
