Dirt - Friday, May 22

WOO HOO!!  Long weekend so we can recharge the batteries!  I am stoked!…My friends P.O.D. have announced a new album and tour (See Road Rage!)!!!! The Awakening drops in August and the tour starts next month.  The new album was produced by long-time knob twirler Howard Benson.  Looking forward to catching up with Sonny Sandoval on the hotLine soon!

Slayer!  They are coming back with a new album,, Repentless.  Guitarist Kerry King said the title track is in honor of their late  member Jeff Hannenman. It was produced by Terry Date and will drop on 9/11. Hannenman, who co-founded Slayer with King, passed away May 02, 2013.  Very sad day, indeed.

Slipknot’s Mick Thompson and Jim Root were interviewed for Premier Guitar talking about their gear.  Love the new looks on both!  LOL   Watch it here.  Love Mick’s voice!  Never really heard him talk much before!   Mostly know Clown, Sid, Corey and Jim.  Excited for Clown’s first movie.  Fingers crossed for him he will have a hit on his hands with Officer Downe. (Thanks Blabbermouth!)

Pop Evil‘s new album is coming in August.  The first single is coming Jun 1.  It was produced by Adam Kasper and it’s KILLER!  Will be talking to Lee Kakaty next week.  Also new Finger Eleven music coming.  The band will be in the hardDriveRadio studios on Jun 2.  Lou will be on the hotLine next week with Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach and Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch.  Lots of stuff happening!   (As usual!)

Gotta dash and get a start on the weekend!  Have a great one and I’ll be back Tuesday!   Catch this weekend’s hardDrive with Lou Brutus  special edition Cover It Up!   Be safe.  Here’s to all the military men and women who served and continue to serve this great country.
