Dirt - Wednesday, Feb 20

 Good day!  Have you seen the footage from the dash cams from those cars over in Russia?  The things drivers and the police do over there is astounding!   I saw a bunch of it on NBC News last night.  Google it.  You won’t believe your eyes!  And kids, don’t try this at home!…..Device, the new band formed by Disturbed frontman David Draiman, has issued the first single and video from its upcoming self-titled debut. The track is called “Vilify” and Draiman told us where it’s coming from musically and lyrically: “It is a very fierce introductory track for this record. It has a very strong fusion of that electronic element in there. Still very heavy, still very rhythmic. Very anthemic, very intensely melodic. It’s a song that lyrically is talking about everyone out there who likes to make me out to be such a bad guy, this monster of epic proportions, which I’m really not.”  Check out the video for it here.  I am trying to discern if David’s wife, Lena, is the robot woman in the clip.  She’s appeared in Disturbed videos in the past.  Can’t wait to hang with David (and Lena and the “furry Draimans”-they have a bunch of dogs)  down in Austin at SXSW.  David has a home there…..Bonnaroo   has announced it’s line-up for their 2013 outdoor festival down in Manchester, TN.  Mumford And Sons, Paul McCartney, Bjork, Wilco and Tom Petty are among the headliners, which will take place from June 13th through the 16th. (Aw geez, can’t make it, I’ll be in France!) Other major acts include the Lumineers, Passion Pit, David Byrne, Of Monsters And Men, Walk The Moon, ZZ Top, Gaslight Anthem, Baroness and many more. For a full list of confirmed artists so far, check out the gathering’s official site. Tickets for Bonnaroo 2013 — the 12th consecutive year for the event — go on sale this Saturday (Feb 23rd) at noon ET….Meanwhile, the Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the second year of Delaware’s Firefly Festival, which will take place on June 21st, 22nd and 23rd at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway. (Damn, I will STILL be in France!)  Joining the Chili Peppers will be fellow headliners Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, plus Vampire Weekend, Foster The People, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Passion Pit, MGMT, the Lumineers, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Imagine Dragons, the Joy Formidable and dozens more. Festival passes for Firefly go on sale to the general public on Thursday (Feb 21st)…..In stores, the new Buckcherry album, Confessions…..Wow!  Thanks to Loudwire for unearthing this footage of Rage Against the Machine performing in a record store in Tha LBC (That’s hip hop for Long Beach, CA) in 1992!  God, I miss this band!   And they look soooo young!  Tim with long hair and a mustache!  Zack with a “hairdo”!  Awesome!  Watch it! ….I am hearing chat about the bands on the Uproar Festival this year.  Should be very interesting…..Yesterday I listened to Puscifer‘s version of Queen‘s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  They did it justice, but I am not sure about the video!  LOL  Check it out!   HILARIOUS!  You can find the song on the new Puscifer EP Donkey Punch the Night.   Hoping to chat with Maynard in the coming weeks…..Also looking forward to speaking with Rob Zombie on his forthcoming album and next films.   Always a treat!…Have a great day!
