The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
A tease of new HellYeah is bound to get your rocks off. Posted on Vinnie Paul's Facebook page is a video clip showing Chad and Vinnie in a parked car jamming to a really sick beat. It reminds me of what I used to do back in the day with Pantera or Mudvayne albums—get in the car, crank it and rock out! Paul and Chad are then heard exchanging lyrics back and forth, but the whole thing is as raw as that concert footage you took on your phone back in 2009. It's worth a listen, especially if you're waiting for the follow up to the band's "Band of Brothers" album. The new album will be out sometime in April. An actual date has not been revealed.
Now on iTunes
Since you've resolved this year to actually buy the music you listen to, you can go back and check out some classics retooled for digital download. Black Sabbath's earlier albums are all being made available for digital download via iTunes. Go take a gander and purchase some today.
In This Teaser
She knows we love to be teased ... In This Moment have posted an excerpt from their upcoming live DVD. Head to YouTube to watch the clip. The video opens with front woman Maria Brink talking about that moment being the first moment that In This Moment was being filmed for DVD. Brink then dedicates the song to the fans in the audience and bursts into "Beautiful Tragedy". The DVD comes out next week. It includes special footage of the band and also a live cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer”. Picking it up just to hear Maria Brink sing about being Closer to God would be pretty sweet.
Celebrating 20 years
The Toadies have been scheduled to play The Pageant down in St. Louis this April. The show is part of their 20th anniversary celebration of their Rubberneck album, which makes us feel really old here at Springfield's Real Rock. Expect to see them April 10th.
