The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Stapp is back
Creed front man Scott Stapp is taking advantage of being away from the band with a solo album out early next month … I know … we’re all dripping with anticipation. The singer has released a lyric video for the first single from the attempt titled "Slow Suicide". The tune comes in with a standard shrilling guitar riff then the signature marbles-in-the-mouth voice of Stabb burst onto the scene with the tag line “I’m committing slow suicide”. The lyric video also shows a bunch of pics of Stapp on stage, off stage, with long hair and short hair. The album Proof of Life comes out Nov. 5th.
Nirvana's RSD offering
The tradition of having independent record stores offer up some unique special limited edition artifacts the day after Thanksgiving continues this year, and though Nirvana has been out of the game making new music for years, there will be a newly remixed and remastered version of Nirvana’s In Utero next month for Record Store Day. The double disc vinyl set will feature new versions of the original tracks. Record Store Day is November 29th.
