The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Behind-the-scenes tour video
An exclusive VEVO video of Nine Inch Nails shows a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming tour. The intense thirteen minute video shows how all the moving pieces came together in the lead up to their first show at Fuji Rock a few weeks ago. Every aspect of the band’s on stage performance is reviewed in the development of the highly technical show. It’s clear that it’s not just the music that fans are gonna get their fill during the forthcoming tour. Fans eyes will probably melt from the amazing array of lights and on-stage video screen interaction. The video even show s the frustration from Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor as the last few pieces were put in place on the final night of rehearsals. The video says it’s part 1 … cross your fingers for the series to continue throughout the tour. Nine Inch Nail’s new album Hesitation Marks drops this coming Tuesday. The band, and their intense stage show, will be in St. Louis October 1st.
Married and prego
They got engaged during a pay-per-view wrestling event and now Tool guitarist Adam Jones has married his fiancé and news is they’re expecting child. Jones and now wife Korin Faught tied the knot in San Francisco last month, but the wedding wasn’t publicly revealed until this week in a message posted on Facebook. Now Mrs. Jones posted to her Instagram page a picture of her baby bump. As for Tool’s baby bump, it’s reported that the band is in the first few stages of a new album. Drummer Danny Carey is reported saying that they may have something together by the end of the year, but logistically they won’t realistically be able to release anything to the masses until early next year.
Projected top seller
The latest album from Avenged Sevenfold is expected to sell up to 180,000 copies in it’s first week. That’s not a bad showing at all. Surely that’ll put the band’s latest album Hail to the King at the top of the rock charts and hell … at the top of the top 200. The band kicks off their headlining tour with Deftones October 3rd in Chicago and in Bloomington October 12th.
