The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Grohl produced EP
They’re currently on tour with Deftones and Avenged Sevenfold, and now Ghost B.C. is getting ready to drop a new EP that was produced by non other than Dave Grohl. The band has proven to be one of the breakthrough acts of 2013 after their softmore album Infestissumam got rave reviews. The EP If You Have Ghost features four cover tunes covering songs from ABBA, Depeche Mode and Rocky Erickson. The somewhat mellow tune If You Have Ghosts ist streaming online through YouTube. The Grohl produced disc will drop November 19th.
Flipping a coin
It’s the tour Down Under we wish would come the North America: Nine Inch Nails is set to tour with co-headliners Queens of the Stone Age in Australia and New Zealand. The bands have eight dates in which they’ll actually flip a coin each night to determine who will perform last and who will perform first. Nine Inch Nails is currently on a headlining arena tour in the US.
By the numbers
The official numbers aren’t quite out yet, but it’s being projected that the first Korn album with Brian “Head” Welch in 10 years may snag a No. 5 spot on the billboard charts with 40 to 45,000 copies sold. As for Alter Bridge, their album Fortress could come up from behind and grab a No. 6 spot with 30 to 35,000 copies sold. The EP from Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington could be in a close race with Cage the Elephant’s latest album for the No. 9 spot … Official numbers come out Wednesday.
Not for profit
So, what about the numbers from the new Metallica Movie? It was reported earlier this week on the Music Minute that the movie so far hasn’t grossed over $3 million. Front Man James Hetfield says he wasn’t expecting to make money off the project. Yeah, they did it for the fans … OK.
