Deicide Vs Cops
antiMusic reports: [official statement] On July 14th, 2006, DEICIDE were caught in a whirlwind of unfortunate events that occurred during their performance at Hustlers in Laredo, Texas. DEICIDE were in Texas on a short week-long tour promoting their forthcoming release, "The Stench of Redemption," when they were faced with payment issues from the show's promoter, as well as a slough of technical issues that were also experienced by opening band, RINGWORM. Lead singer Glen Benton verbally expressed his displeasure with the situation to the crowd, but Benton was anxiously ready to forge on and play a full set for the audience despite prior set backs when club promoters called Laredo police. Restlessness grew amongst the crowd, resulting in several bottles being thrown around the venue causing mass confusion throughout the venue and between the police, crowd and band. Laredo police closed down the show, forcing DEICIDE to cut their performance short. "We wanted to finish the show," Benton genuinely states but the show came to a halt when police stormed the venue and surprisingly maced and arrested a member of the band on unclear charges. Benton states that the police used "excessive force" and many concert goers have confirmed this with unofficial observations. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Video Panic Channel
PR reports: As the hundreds of bands who have shared stages with them know, you can't follow Jane's Addiction. It's better not to try´┐Ż. That lesson isn't lost on the members of The Panic Channel, a new band featuring three former members of Jane's -- guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and latter-day bassist Chris Chaney -- along with a comparatively new talent, singer/guitarist Steve Isaacs. The three musicians' collaboration with a singer who is completely different stylistically from most of their previous band mates has brought them into new terrain, which is exactly what they wanted. The musicians sound like themselves, but The Panic Channel is a more streamlined and melodic enterprise. 

Capitol Records will release The Panic Channel on August 15, 2006 but for now you can check out the video for "Why Cry" at the full story link. - Click Here for the Full Story
