New single soon
Get ready for some new Godsmack! The band has revealed that they’ve completed work on their sixth studio album and Sully Erna is promising that the release of the first single will surface soon. The album has been front and center for the band since November … of 2013! This past Sunday Erna took to his Facebook page to declare that the record is done being recorded and it’s bad ass. It’s also being reported by Erna that the band has 15 new songs which they’re trying to parse down to 10. There’s still no release date for the first single or for the new album, but we’ll keep you posted.
Scantlin loses it
Oops … he’s done it again. Wes Scantlin has made music news, and not for being awesome or for putting out new music. Nope! Video of the Puddle of Mud front man loosing his cool at a show in Dallas last week where it’s reported a fan got injured when Wes through a broken faulty microphone into the audience. TMZ provided video shows scantling yelling at fans, all kinds of liquids flying and Scantlin taking his shirt off to leave the stage declaring he’s the hottest m’n’effer in the building. Way to keep it classy! (By the way ... this guy has a key to the city of Springfield)
On stage video
Forget about fan-shot video ... Ever wanted to be on stage with Nine Inch Nails as they perform the tune “March of the Pigs”? A new pro-shot video of just that from a show in Australia is available online. The band posted the video touting a new 4K video camera. The band is on tour through Europe and the UK and also will be in the US this summer and a show at Tinley Park with Soundgarden.
No hard feelings
Word is that Queens of the Stone Age have welcomed back Nick Oliveri to the band … at least for a performance with the band in Oregon. The original bassist and co-vocalist was fired back in 2004 for reasons that were never made clear. Front man Josh Homme says even though the split was nearly 10 years ago and in spite of past problems, they’ve remained on good terms. Queens of the Stone Age wrapped up a tour of Australia with Nine Inch Nails last month.
