Miss May I are sharing their sadness about the death of a fan at one of their shows over the weekend. A post on the band’s Facebook page includes a photo of Alberto Scott, a 21-year-old man, who died during a Miss May I show at Webster Hall in New York City. The band’s post says they’re waiting a full report from the NYPD about what happened, but they are asking for thoughts and prayers to be with the family. They also shared a fundraising page to help pay for funeral costs. Other reports indicate that Scott suffered a fatal head injury stage diving where no one caught him.
Chevelle is going to remain on the road for the rest of the summer. The band will make it to Rock the District in Rock Island, Illinois, June 21st. They’ll then travel all around the US to the West coast and the south and back to the Midwest wrapping up in Michigan. The band also is toying with what to release as the next single from their album La Gorgola.
Revisiting an old song
It’s not “Wheels on the Bus” … it’s actually much older and it’s about to get the Kirk Hammett treatment. The tune “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)” is a more than century old tune and it’s about to get a facelift, not just from Hammett, but several other artists including Katy Perry and Nick Cave. That’s the word of the somewhat bizarre compilation titield The Gay Nineties Old Tyme Music: Daisy Bell … and by Gay Nineties, surely they’re referring to the 1890s. The “Daisy Bell” actually resurfaced back in 1968 in the epic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Proceeds from the extremely limited vinyl release will go to the Little Kids Rock organization.
Lyric video released
As we get closer to the release of Linkin Park’s new album a, there’s a new video from the band that mixes the traditional music video with a lyric video. The song “Until It’s Gone” can be found on the forthcoming album The Hunting Party which comes out June 17th.
