Axl Wants Reunion?
Day in rock reports: Metal Sludge is running excerpts from an interesting interview with Adam Bomb about the recent Adler's Appetite Europe Tour fiasco. He goes into some details about what went down and Adler doesn't come off that well. But one of the more interesting tidbits in the interview was this one from Adam Bomb "Funnily enough, Izzy Stradlin called me the same day the tour ended. We spoke for 2 hours. He wanted to come to Portugal to jam with us. 

"To me he was more interested in checking, on behalf of Axl Rose, Steven's real conditions for an eventual Guns N'Roses reunion. I told Izzy that I had to leave the tour because Adler was out of control and probably he wasn't able to reach Portugal. And he didn't." You can read the full story link for the gruesome details about this tour from Adam's perspective.

Over It Reissues
punkbands reports: On July 25th we will release Over It Outer Banks. This album is comprised of the long out-of-print and largely sought after EPs, Over It and Hindsight is Always 20/20, digitally re-mastered, and with brand new artwork that is a companion piece to Over ItWelcome to Virginia: The Ready Series. These songs were written when Over It were all in High School in a suburb of Washington DC, and span the time when they entered into young adulthood. That growth is mirrored in the music that this seminal emopunk band played, inspiring dozens of bands in the process. On Outer Banks, Over It finds their signature sound in fast, technical, hard-hitting yet melodic rock that is now commonly known as emopunk. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
