Be on the look out for new Black Stone Cherry. A lyric video for the song “Fiesta Del Fuego” is circulating online. The lyric video features a series of pictures manipulated in post, some kaleidoscopic trippiness and highlights of what seems to be a pretty unruly party. The new song’s closing riff is worth a listen alone! The band says the new album is harder and more rockin’ than their previous attempt. Black Stone Cherry’s forthcoming album Magic Moutnatin is due out May 6th. The band will be out on the road supporting Seether beginning April 18th.
Fozzy is set to drop a new album, and with it a flood of activity. Fronted by pro-wrestler Chris Jericho, the band’s new single “Lights Go Out” will drop Apirl 29th. That is said to spark a flurry of activity in the coming months. Before the single even comes out, the band will begin a tour in earnest April 25th. They’ll be in Pontiac, Illinois, at the Freakster’s Roadhouse May 16th. Later this summer, the band will release their sixth studio album.
New Hole soon
Get ready for what will surely be quite the spectacle – Courtney Love has reunited her former band mates from Hole and there’s new music on the way. In an interview with The Quietus Love said that there are plans to release a new single and there will also be a UK tour this May. The original incarnation of Hole hasn’t released anything since 1998’s Celebrity Skin. Love released something in 2010 as Hole, but she was the only sole member of the band on that release. There’s no word yet on when we’ll see new Hole music. Don’t hold your breath.
Not until next year
And speaking of holding your breath, if you’re holding out for a new Metallica album this year … you may be disappointed to know that it could be next year for a new collection. Lars recently said that the follow up to 2008’s Death Magnetic is likely to come out next year. Just as long as they release a few demos here and there, I think we’ll be OK with that … But I’m not promising we’ll be that patient. Hurry up, guys!
