Invitro Week: New Disease
antiMusic reports: Invitro is the new project from ex-Snot/Soulfly guitarist Mikey Doling that made quite a name for themselves on the Family Values tour this summer. Their debut ' When I Was A Planet' hit stores this month and to celebrate we asked frontman Jeff Weber to pick his favorite five tracks from the CD and tell us a little bit about each one. We'll now turn it over to him for today's song "New Disease":

New Disease is the first song that we as a band ever recorded to be passed on to the public. It has been the opener to ninety percent of our live shows, and is also the opening song on our record. The song was initially named robotic bible after one of my favorite lyrics in the song, but was eventually changed to the more fitting, New Disease.

Gigwise reports: A man has died after an incident in the crowd at a Smashing Pumpkins concert in Vancouver on Monday (September 24th). Police say the man was unconscious when he was pulled from the crowd after becoming involved in either a moshing or crowd surfing incident. 

He was then taken to the side of the stage at the PNE Forum where first aid personnel worked on him before he was transferred to St. Paul's Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. 

Const. Howard Chow said that police had "determined that there wasn't any foul play or suspicious circumstances involved," but admitted that the death "could" have been the result of an out of control mosh-pit. - more on this story

Spector Mistrial, Judge Threatened
antiMusic reports: Celebrity Justice in the US continues it's losing streak with prosecutors failing to convict another celeb. This time "Wall of Sound" record producer Phil Spector convinced enough of the jurors in his murder trial that the victim died of suicide to deadlock the jury. And authorities are also investigating a Myspace murder threat against the judge. 

The judge in the trial declared a mistrial after the jury declared they were hopelessly deadlocked. But prosecutors haven't given up, they plan to take Spector to trial again where he faces 15 years to life if found guilty of murdering "b" movie actress Lana Clarkson at his home in 2003. Meanwhile, the judge in the case, Larry Paul Fidler, is taking some heat online with Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department investigating a murder threat posted on Myspace.- more on this story

PR reports: Twiztid's upcoming "Toxic Terror Tour" featuring Mower has been cancelled. The tour cancellation was due to a recent car accident involving Twiztid's Monoxide where he suffered a torn ACL muscle in his knee, a serious injury that requires him to stay off it for the next 6-8 weeks for fear of tearing it further.

"It's unfortunate, but we got the news that the upcoming tour with Twiztid has been cancelled. We were all looking forward to playing for the Juggalos on this tour, as they've been nothing but cool to us. We wish Monoxide a quick recovery and hope he can get back to work soon," says Mower frontman Brian Sheerin. "We got the bad news right at the same time that we found out that 'Road Rage' is now the #3 most requested metal track on Sirius Hard Attack. It's unfortunate because we need to connect with the people around the country who have been supporting Mower and want to see us perform live. We are working on getting back out on the road on another tour before the end of the year, so hopefully we'll be out there tearing up your town soon."- more on this story

Who Needs Tommy Lee?
antiMusic reports: Tommy Lee said in a recent interview that he was kinda over rock well it seems that his now former band Motley Crue is kinda over Tommy Lee. This according to what Nikki Sixx told Howard Stern in a recent interview. 

Metalunderground has this recap: "Howard asked Nikki about the chicks he's banged and if he names any of the really famous chicks he had. He wasn't going to get into those names so Howard asked him what's up with the band now. Tommy Lee has quit the band so he's out now. 

Nikki said that they had this manager working with the band and he started to demand more money to have Tommy in it with them. The guy kept demanding more money and they ended up suing the guy because of what he was doing. He said they lost 10s of millions of dollars because Tommy was out doing solo stuff. He said that guy cost them a lot of money so they had to sue him. Tommy pulled out of the band because of that and the battle is still going on. He said you'd think that Tommy would support the band but that's not the case. Nikki said that Tommy isn't the singer or songwriter so they should be fine without him.
