Unconventional recording expected
The new Foo Fighters' album is going to be recorded in a way that's never been recorded before in history, according to front man Dave Grohl. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine the multi-instrumentalist says "it’s f–king rad," and they are gonna be recording soon, but mostly that "they're doing it in a way that no one’s done before" and that the band is writing the album in a way that has never been done before ... so he thinks. The band's new album is the follow up to the critically acclaimed 2011 release Wasting Light. Grohl hints at his unconventional plans for the new album, but back with Wasting Light the band recorded on analog and cut the tape up to include in special releases. That's pretty bad ass. So, we're taking bets on what the unconventional method is going to be. Are they going to right the album via Skype and record it while jumping out of an airplane? No doubt that Grohl has been a busy bloke ... dude worked on the Sound City Documentary, has collaborated with country artists, been on kids' programs and more. Next thing we know he'll be the first rockstar to record in space.
Plan to perform new song
Metallica have a new song coming out and fans will get a chance to determine what they're set lists will be while out on tour in Europe. Here’s the deal: for their upcoming shows overseas, the band is asking ticket holders to vote on what their set list should be. Fans can pick 17 of the 18 songs. The one they can’t pick is a new tune the band plans to feature each night. Metallica also posted to their website that the band is ready to make another album. Meanwhile, the band’s Through The Never film will be released on many video formats (including 3D) this January.
New ††† video
††† (Crosses) have a new video fro the tune “Bitches Brew.” The band fronted by Deftones front man Chino Marino put out the video which shows a trio of girls in white dresses dancing around a bed while a old-school TV shows Chino singing. There’s a ton of strange and artsy after-effects leading up to the bed burning. What kind of Kubrickian symbolism is there? Not sure. You’ll have to watch it over and over again. ††† (Crosses) will release a self-titled album come February.
