Today's Day in Rock Stories
Shinoda revealed the song on Thursday morning via the Zane Lowe's World First on Beats 1 on Apple Music and followed up shortly after with the release of the music video.
The song comes from his forthcoming solo album, "Post Traumatic", which will be hitting stores on June 15th and will feature guest appearances from K.Flay, blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly, Deftones' Chino Moreno, and more. Watch the new videohere.
Maynard James Keenan had this to say about the holograph film, "It is very much a combined experience of the tactile and the visual. I come from an era where the physical pieces of music were something that you cherished… Something like this brings back that visual excitement for people."
Sebring added, "Having Maynard and Billy's trust to create this for A Perfect Circle was a true artist's dream. Their 14-year break allowed technology to catch up with their groundbreaking music and gave me the chance to apply new ideas of dimensional capture to this stunning album." Watch the videohere.
Bathory was interviewed by WRIF in Detroit and was asked if Soundgarden was a musical influence but he instead revealed that Cornell's tragic death was influence in a totally different way from Ivan Moody.
He said, "I wasn't, but it's another thing that Ivan is really close to. Everybody knows he had a little bit of a rocky road in the last couple of years, and he's looking at all those bands and all the musicians that are no longer here
"And that's kind of how he came to get sober - by saying, 'Hey, man, I don't wanna go that way.' So, in many ways, actually, as weird as that sounds, because that tragedy, basically, what happened sort of reminded him, 'You know what? You need to address it now before it's too late.' And he did, and he's sober now - completely sober - and he seems to be happy."
The band just released a brand new single called "Call Me Sir" which features guest appearances from Gym Class Heroes' Travie McCoy and country star Cam. It can be streamed here
According to Columbia Records, fans can also expect to hear the song added to Train's setlist on their current North American spring and summer coheadlining tour with Hall And Oats.
Bassist John Macko had this to say, "When we began this process, we always were mindful to write songs that moved us as a band first. We felt that if we achieved that, then the music will most likely touch our fans as well."
Lead vocalist and guitarist Kendall Bechtel added, "We are very proud of the new album! We hope the fans will hear the classic threads of the Fifth Angel they know and love, along with the growth and maturity the individuals of the band have gone through over the years. We hope they love the new songs as much as we do!" Read morehere.
I feel like this song was a virtual time warp in getting to opportunity to see how life would sound if I were teleported back to the Rockstar: INXS finale in September 2005.
Over the course of the live recording of the Rockstar: INXS television show, INXS was writing material for their new album "Switch" that would be released at the end of the show. Marti Frederiksen was writing with Andrew Farriss that wrote all of the INXS hits. From what I was told, they felt this song would really suit my energy and performance style.
I ended up taking 2nd place on the show and never got to bring this song to fruition. I was cutting my new record "The Ground You Walk On" with Marti Frederiksen in 2017 and he pulled up this song. I heard it and absolutely loved the bright energy and it brought me right back into those days living in the Rockstar mansion so many years ago. I felt that if we reworked the lyrics, it would be cool to do now and see what I would have sounded like fronting that INXS vibe.
We tracked the song and did a huge video with costumes, dancers and lots of special effects and really tried to create a party that matched the intensity of the song. This song let me live my 1980's dream for 3 minutes and 6 seconds. Absolute retro bliss!!!!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself here and learn more about the album "The Ground You Walk On" it comes fromright here!
The project has been completely restored to deliver leader Dave Mustaine's intended vision while revealing unheard parts and performances throughout the record with a new remix by veteran metal mixer Mark Lewis (Whitechapel) and remastering by Ted Jensen.
The package includes the full album alongside 7 live audio tracks from VHS tapes found in Mustaine's own attic and features Megadeth's 1984 3-track demo and the once removed cover of Lee Hazelwood's "The Boots" that has been added back to the record with recut vocals intended to maintain the integrity of both the original song and the group's revamped rendition.
As part of their 35th anniversary celebrations, Megadeth will begin a European tour in Olso, Norway on June 5, just days before the 1985 reissue arrives in stores. Stream the song here.
Frontman Brandan Schieppati had these comments, "After five years of taking time off, I realized the heartbeat of Bleeding Through was still beating. One of the best things we could have done for BT was to step away and concentrate on other aspects of our lives, letting the dust settle on Bleeding Through as people knew us. The motivation to write Love Will Kill All, was purely from our passion for our music, expressing the creative blood that runs through our veins - which hasn't changed since 1999. BT has always felt that music is our ultimate expression; whether people want it or not, we felt the need to express ourselves again and the beauty is that no one can stop it from happening.
"BT's creativity and passion is truly put on display with our new record. 'Set Me Free' is a song that speaks of new beginnings. For so many years, I felt that Bleeding Through was a band that was held back because of other people's ill interest in the band, whether it was relating to business or personal interests. I felt trapped by the business of the industry and outside perception. Bleeding Through is all about the music and the people who enjoy it… That was lost for a while, BUT, now it's found. 'Set Me Free' is about the rebirth of purity of Bleeding Through. The video is dark, frantic, and strong; it personifies BT and what we will always be. TIME TO RISE!" Watch the videohere.
The new clip is the for the performance of the tsong "Truth" and was captured during the band's special show in September of last year at Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria where they were joined by the Orchestra of Plovdiv State Opera to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the "Ocean Machine" album.
Devin had this to say, "Hey there, Devin T here, taking a second to bring myself up for air from writing :) After a long and arduous process, the concert myself and the DTP performed in Plovdiv Bulgaria is finished, and here is your first view of it, 'Truth'.
"I am very proud of this release and it represents a culmination of many years of material. The concert actually is in two parts, with Ocean Machine being the second. It was a fantastic night and an unforgettable experience with the die-hards travelling from all around the world to be there with us.
"As I move into the next phase of my life and career, this live in Bulgaria DVD stands as a monument for me, and what we achieved with the DTP. As always, words fail me when it comes to expressing what the support of the audience means, but I thank you and everyone involved for allowing this to happen. I hope you enjoy :)" Watch the video
Game Day contains 13 new tracks, a bonus track, and two "super bonus tracks" - Holsapple's critically acclaimed single "Don't Mention the War" b/w "Cinderella Style," originally released in 2017. "After putting the single out on my own last year, I made the decision to put out an album. Some tunes are brand new, some have been in rotation for a bit, but all are worthy. My 'middle-aged Pet Sounds fantasy' is real, with the issues of middle age put to memorable melodies. The old guy at work in 'Tuff Day,' watching my parents' place get cleared out in 'Inventory,' a decades-late thank-you note to a college girlfriend in 'Commonplace' - they're all a part of the present-day me."
Game Day is prime Holsapple, whose recording career spans nearly five decades. It contains all the hooks, clever lyrics, and deft instrumentation one would expect. As he paraphrases Jeff Beck in the packaging, "Today, with all of the hard competition in the music business, it's almost impossible to come up with anything totally original. So I haven't, but I had a lot of fun making Game Day, and I hope it comes through when you hear it." See the tracklistinghere.
The summer event will be staged on July 27th and 28th at the historical Borgholm Castle on the island of Öland. In Flames frontman Anders Fridén shared his excitement about the new additions, "We're happy to announce the final additions that complete the line-up of our festival, Borgholm Brinner this July.
Please welcome our brothers in Dark Tranquillity whom we look forward to sharing the stage with for the first time in years, and our friends in Satyricon. We can't wait to bring the energy of all of these artists into such a unique atmosphere as the Borgholm Castle. It's going to be an unforgettable weekend!" See the full lineuphere.
Moving On Song is possibly one of my favorite songs on my album. It's upbeat, yet has a story to tell that I think everyone can relate to. We all have our story of that moment we threw in the towel and we were moving on. We may not of wanted to, it might have been a hard move. But no matter what we've all had to move on a time or two. I started writing "Movin' on Song" on my way back from visiting my grandparents and I had finally talked my Grandpa into his Rolex watch he kept in a safe and never wore. At the time, I was going through a lot of different things in my personal life, as we all do, and I just looked at it and after several glances of admiration of this beautiful gold Rolex on my wrist, "this watch on my wrist is telling me it's time to let him go" popped into my head and it went from there! You know how sometimes you can put something on, or get something new and it can make you feel on top of the world! Like, "hell yes I'm going rock the socks off today" . Well this watch apparently gave me the strength to make me think I was strong enough to move on and from that day forward I kinda have been. It was a slow process but I've officially "moved on" . I got all the way to the first verse of the first chorus and was stumped. I couldn't think of ANYTHJNG that went with" keep em coming all night long", I held this song for months and months. So I eventually mentioned it to a dear friend of mine that has a extraordinary talent for coming up with punch lines and phrases! We sat on the porch for about 20 minutes and then Autum finally blurted out, "because tonight, this is my Movin' on song" and I knew it when I heard it that it was what that song had been missing. The punch line, "Moving on"! Damn right we're Movin' on. It was like the ultimate Shabam I had been searching for. After that we were able to take what I had and what she came up with and did the damn thing. I think it turned into a really great song and I hope all my fans love it just as much as I do. . So here's to me, and here's to you and here's to Movin' on when we don't want to.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
