|Undriveable Bus Sidelines Ozzfest Band|
The band explained what has been happening
via a post on their Myspace page on Sunday night: We've been getting lots
of mail from pissed off DAATH fans that either wanted to see us at the
Phoenix Ozzfest last week, or in Oklahoma City tonight. I'm going to explain
what happened. At the start of the tour a company which will remain nameless
rented us a converted airport shuttle bus. On paper it sounded perfect
for us but in reality it was an uninhabitable, undriveable piece of sh*t.
We were roughing it out with that thing but finally last week, right outside
the House of Blues in Hollywood, the transmission on it fell out. That's
why we missed the Phoenix Ozzfest. We didn't have a way to get there. The
company we rented it from did nothing to help us out

|And The Award for Coolest Album Title of 2007 Goes To...|
With a scheduled release date of October 24th, 'Touching Base with a Chainsaw' contains countless hard-hitting highlights, including the prog metal-esque "Make Sure You Tell Your Friends," as well as "Pretty for Nostalgia," which shows that Bixby is one of the more intense screamers in all of hard rock today.
"This band is about the future," explains Vazquez. "Five young guys who appreciate the music that came before, play the music of today, but are going to keep creating and stepping outside the box into the future. Music is the last free thing left to do. There are no limits, and that is going to allows us to grow with every album we put out." And as evidenced by their debut, Of Hearts and Shadows are certainly off to a good start.- Check em out here

|Full Blow Chaos for Obituary|
Vocalist Ray Mazzola tells that the bands have been hoping to tour together for a long time, but it never happened until now. "We've been talking about and planning this tour for years. It's something we are very excited to do, to see Obituary every night, because we love their music and it will totally blow our minds. We aren't going to be backstage when they perform; we'll be right out in the crowd, moshing it up."
While this tour leans much more to the metal side of the musical spectrum, Ray says that the band is ready to jump right in. "We love our hardcore roots, but we are metal heads in the same sense, and Obituary has always been very prominent in our metal listening. - More including dates can be found here

|Five O'Clock Heroes Set Release|
Transatlantic Brit-Rock saviors certainly hold a deep routed and unconditional place in most New Yorkers and Londoners heart. Having carved their way amongst the masses from the indie rock explosion back in the early "Noughties" – they ventured on the road, the old school way, without funds and equipped with an array of amazing new songs, top notch live performances and a presence hip and dark enough to attract the hearts and eyes of any rock n'roll dude and doll.
Indeed, Five O'Clock Heroes have garnered a loyal legion of fans, on both sides of the Atlantic, after playing a string of European festival dates and about to throw themselves on the road herein the US this Fall – prepare yourselves for an onslaught of intense and good old fashioned mod rock beats and riffs. Melodies accompanied by the quirky and immediately recognizable vocals of Antony Ellis, singing tales of his tribulations – with tracks such as "Knocked Her Up", "Corporate Boys" and "White Girls", it's not impossible to understand the charm, wit and appeal this band so blatantly possess.- Watch Time On My Hands Live at Pinkpop 2007
