The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
'Talica makin' the rounds
They appeared at Yankees Stadium where they performed “Enter Sandman” in front of baseball fans shortly after performing the Apollo Theater, a venue typically set aside for urban comedians … and now it’s time to appear with a comedian who bills himself as a conservative commentator. Metallica will be on The Cobert Report tonight. The band released the soundtrack to their 3D film Metallica Through the Never today. And to promote the film and the soundtrack the band is obviously making all the rounds.
Live DVD out today
Meanwhile more details about the Megadeth motion picture Countdown to Extinction: Live are out today as the feature drops in stores. The concert video was flimed last year and includes the band performing the entire 1992 album Countdown to Extinction, plus a ton of other fan favorites.
Teasing new album
Cage the Elephant is preparing for their new release and the band decided to perform some of the new songs to a live radio audience in LA. The new album Melophobia is due out October 8th and is the band’s third addition to their catalog. Hailing from Kentucky and fronted by two brothers, Cage the Elephant performed “Spiderhead” and “Teeth” and the latest single from the forthcoming album “Come a Little Closer.”
Machine Head makes headway
Speaking of new albums, Machine Head is hard at work on their latest attempt. Phil Demmel posted an update to Twitter that indicates they’re “over the hump writing this record. Each song is a monster so far. So stoked!” Meanwhile, Robb Flynn posted a snapshot of a whiteboard with a list of what appears to be five song titles. There’s no word yet on when the new Machine Head album will drop.
