Our thoughts go out to our friends in the UK after the senseless attacks by extremists in your country on Thursday. It is a bit cliché to say but today we are all British and behind you 100%. 
 
MTV Sorry for Live 8
Audio Aggression reports: MTV has apologized for its eminently interrupted coverage of July 2nd's Live 8 concerts, which was highly criticized for cutting away during Pink Floyd's performance, as well as excessive commercial breaks. MTV EVP Van Toffler told the L.A. Times that a re-edited version of the Live 8 broadcast is "not the craziest idea." He added, "Knowing what I know now, I probably would have made the decision to go commercial-free."- Click Here for the Full Story

Roth To Replace Stern?
Audio Aggression reports: Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth is being rumored as Howard Stern's replacement for Infinity Broadcasting's next radio star after "The King Of All Media" ends his run on FM radio. The rumor was started by Chaunce Hayden of Steppin' Out Magazine. Hayden had this to say in an online post:

"Howard Stern's successor has been found! It's none other than '80s rocker David Lee Roth. Infinity Broadcasting isn't commenting and Roth has been asked to keep mum until it's officially announced.

Cinderella Vs Nirvana
Blabbermouth reports: In a recent interview with Newdealers.com, CINDERELLA drummer Fred Coury spoke about how his band one of the biggest rock acts of the late '80s was seemingly sidelined by the grunge explosion of the early '90s. 

"I'll tell you about the Kurt Cobain [NIRVANA] thing, he knew what he was doing," Coury said. "I mean, if you don't want the fame, don't go on tour, don't go on MTV, and if you don't want the money, there are plenty of kids out there with cancer that do need it. I mean, to blow your brains out in your 10,000-square-foot mansion is ridiculous. He should have been in a small, one-bedroom apartment and should have given all his money to cancer research. So I don't buy any of it I don't buy any of that crap. It's a total farce that they didn't want the fame."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

God Forbid Commit Treason
Century media reports: GOD FORBID triumphantly return with IV:Constitution Of Treason, their most dynamic and devastating offering yet, which will undoubtedly solidify their position as one of the genre's elite. The highly anticipated new offering was produced by Jason Suecof (Trivium) at Audiohammer Studios and Eric Rachel (Atreyu, Dillinger Escape Plan) at Trax East, who also handled mixing duties. 

Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) describes his thoughts on their new material: "Musically, it's a more refined and complex version of the traditional GOD FORBID sound, but offers several new twists and turns to the fold. I really think everyone will be surprised when they hear the growth in the vocals overall."

IV:Constitution Of Treason is due to be released on Monday 19th September 2005

Manic PR reports: Candlelight Records with AFM Records confirm September 20 as the US release date for Aeronautics, the second album from German-based metal/hard rock band Masteplan. It is the first record via the two label's recently announced agreement for the North American territory.
