The Ides of March are upon us! Although here in the Adirondack foothills, felt like that YESTERDAY! Just unburied my car and found my garbage lid half way down the street. At least the plows didn’t take out my mailbox like they usually do. Guess that will teach me not to buy a white mailbox!
So All That Remains have announced a spring tour! Tickets go on sale on Friday, St Patty’s Day! See the Road Rage page for all the deets. The band is gearing up for the release of their 8th studio album, Madness, due Apr 28th.

It all starts on Apr 29th at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, FL, wrapping up with a May 25th finale in Patchogue, out on Long Island in NY.
Brave Words found that event online. Our friends in Korn helped our long time bud, Vinnie Paul of Hellyeah celebrate his 53rd birthday the other night in Zurich, Switzerland. Lovin’ da love!
Beartooth is one of four bands rumored to lead the lineup of this year’s Warped Tour, along with CKY, Gwar and Hatebreed. The full lineup will be announced on March 22nd. Beartooth has cracked the Top Five at rock radio with “Hated,” the current single from the band’s sophomore album Aggressive. Beartooth can be seen on tour starting next week with Bring Me The Horizon and the newly reformed Underoath!
Is it me? Or is Baby Metal really awesome? Maybe I am a music snob or outside the demo, but I gotta tell ya, I just don’t get it. Sure, their special effects and stage show are amazing. Do you ever see the musicians? They’ve got a DVD coming out. I watched the trailer. I shake my head. I know Korn and Stone Sour have them out with them this year. I guess I will have to see them live.
My boys Mastodon will be releasing a new music video tomorrow for “Show Yourself.” Their new album, Emperor Of Sand, drops on Friday, Mar 31….Lacuna Coil are making plans to do something very special for their 20th anniversary, which is happening later next year…..And Metallica‘s Hardwired…to Self Destruct album is back at Numero 2 as a result of being bundled with tickets for their upcoming World Wired Tour.
