The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Documentary release set for February
There’s word of the Lamb of God documentary As the Palace Burns getting a release date, and the movie actually gonna hit theaters before you can secure a copy for yourself. The documentary was originally supposed to show the band has evolved over the years and how extreme music can bring people together, but things quickly changed when front man Randy Blythe was arrested on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic. The documentary goes thought the trial and Blythe’s eventual aquital. Expect to see a worldwide release beamed out February 27th. There are also plans to have a 30 minute QnA with the band as part of the film’s showing. Blyth also recently revealed he has a book coming out sometime next year as well.
Rock star visist Portlandia
I’ve never seen it because I can’t stand actor/comedian Fred Armisen. But apparently the show he stars in, Portlandia is gonna get some treatment from rockers the likes of Josh Homme, Duff McKagan and others. The IFC show will feature the musicians in several future episodes. Previous episodes featured the likes of Eddie Vedder, Jack White and others. The fourth season kicks off February 27th.
Secret Foo Fighters show
Patrons of Rock & Roll Pizza got a belly and ear full! Foo Fighters put on a secret show for the pizza shop in California before they head down for a couple of dates in Mexico City. The band performed 23 songs, which included no new songs. Dave Grohl recently said that the band is preparing to record the follow up to 2011’s Wasting Light. He also says that it will be recorded in a way that no one has ever done before. There’s no word yet on when they’ll get into the studio, if that’s what they plan on doing. All we know, Grohl could plan to record some tracks while jumping out of a plane or while SKUBA diving or something. We’ll keep you posted.
Animated series next week
If you’ve been waiting for Avenged Sevenfold’s new animated series, you won’t have to wait much longer. Front man M. Shadows posted online that all six episodes of the show will be available on Machinima’s HappyHour channel on YouTube December 15th. The cartoon is expected to be the precursor to a videogame about the fictitious band Deathbat.
