The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New NIN Out today
The new Nine Inch Nails is in stores today. You can pick up Hesitation Marks with over a dozen new Nails tunes to obsess over. Front man Trent Reznor has also released a 40 minute audio bit of an interview … with himself. He says he didn’t want to do some ridiculous interview with the press. He wanted to be raw for his true fans. That interview is available online. Nine Inch Nails will be out on tour with a stop in St. Louis October 1st. Their live show will feature some of the most technologically sophisticated light and video displays ever used during an arena tour.
Lamb of God are having some more troubles in the overseas. Thankfully, this time it has nothing to do with the unfortunate circumstances front man Randy Blythe found himself involved in earlier this year. Instead, the entire band and their concert is being protested by Malaysian authorities from the so-called Department of Islamic Development. They say the band is Satanic and the concert will corrode morality and faith of Muslims. Let’s hope! That show is scheduled for later this month.
Family Values reunion
A new video making the rounds online will get fans of Nu Metal out of their seats in anticipation as Korn Family Values prepares for a one-off show. The 30-second video features quick onstage clips of Korn, Stone Sour, Deftones, Rammstein and others. Several years flash across the screen including the first year for the Family Values tour way back in 1998 with some scattered years all the way up to the most recent one in 2007. The 2013 show will be October 5th, but there are really no other details … We’ll keep you posted.
Ozzy's burnt bacon
Not to self … mind your bacon. A Twitter message from Sharon Osbourne over the weekend indicates that a quote “fire brigade” was sent to the couples LA home because Ozzy was cooking a bacon sandwich. Now, Sharon wasn’t there … she was in London. So, maybe Ozzy shouldn’t be left alone … especially if bacon sandwiches are involved.
I'm in London, @OfficialOzzy is in LA making a bacon sandwich last night and the fire brigade ended up at our house!!
