The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Soundtrack out tomorrow
Tomorrow the soundtrack for Metallica’s Through The Never drops in stores and it’s your chance to hear that performance before seeing it. Then later this week at select IMAX theaters, the film’s 3D version will be released. Then after that, the band will release the 3D film everywhere October 4th. In the meantime, while we’re waiting for the movie to splash the silver screen in our neck of the woods, the band has made the movie’s performance from “Master of Pupets” available online. The video appears to be a microcosm of what the film is all about – mixing in a story line sequence with a roadie’s mission to get something for the band only to find himself hurled into a riot from the pits of hell. That, and the band’s stage presence is pretty sick.
Metallica's dumb sweaters
Speaking of pretty sick … the band also has announced they will be releasing some pretty hideous holiday sweaters just in time for the parties and family dinners. Keep an eye out for that online at Metallica.com.
Sevendust have announced a headlining tour where they’ll be rocking most of the rest of this month and all of October and most of November. The band will be back down in St. Louis at The Pageant for a show with Asking Alexandria November 14th.
Billie Joe Movie Star
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is ready for his close up as he gets ready to star in the an indie drama titled Like Sunday, Like Rain. The singer will play opposite of Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester. Armstrong’s role? He’ll play the boyfriend of Meester who is a struggling musician that becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old musical prodigy. Apparently, Armstrong also has a cameo in the forthcoming Anchorman The Legend Continues. These are just a few of the big things Armstrong finds himself in the middle of. There’s also Broadway Idiot and the documentary ¡Cuatro! coming out in October.
