The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New PJ song via video
Pearl Jam have released a new video for a song of their upcoming album Lightning Bolt, and it’s for the song “Sirens.” The song is a bit more mellow than “Mind Your Manners,” the first release from the forthcoming album. The video is a performance video, showing the band performing on a dark set. The album drops October 15th.
New STPCB song
Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, also known as STPCB, have released a new song from their forthcoming EP. The tune streaming through iHeartRadio online sounds like a typical STP song … but instead of having a wining Scott Weiland swath the vocal range, it’s Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington doing what he can to sound like Weiland. Currently the band is out on tour with Filter and they’ll have the new 5 song EP High Rise out October 8th.
Kiss football team
Kiss are kicking off their affair with football. The band has hired Bob McMillen to be the coach of the American Football League team the LA Kiss. Co-owners of the team Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley say that McMillen shares their philosophy of “go big or go home,” which anyone playing football should share. In other Kiss-football news, Simmons has been signed on to sing the national anthem for the Steelers-Vikings game September 20th. That game will be part of the NFL International Series (which is an oxy moron … the National Football Leage International Series). That game will be palyed at Londons’ Wembley Stadium. Is this a friggin’ music minute? Or sports news? WTF?
