Maroulis offered the following comments to Billboard about his new gig, "Of course, Guns N' Roses was the soundtrack to my youth. To play with Steven has been the highlight of my career. He's a lovely guy, and his playing on Appetite For Destruction was second to none, and that sound he made on it defined that whole generation's sound." Read morehere.
The band broke the news to fans with the following message, "Earlier today we found out Jesse needs to have surgery to repair an issue with his vocal chords. He is expected to make a full recovery and be fine for any future touring, but to avoid any future risk we unfortunately have to pull off these dates now.
"Our intention is to postpone the headline shows in Sayreville, Louisville, Cleveland and Poughkeepsie and get back to our fans as soon as possible. New dates for those cities will be announced soon, so please hold onto your tickets.
"In the meantime our friends in Hatebreed, Candiria and The Word Alive still plan on continuing forward with these shows. Show them your support."
Vincent who was a member of KISS for two studio albums, "Creatures Of The Night" and their unmasked debut "Lick It Up" and cowrote material for the acclaimed "Revenge", recently spoke with the popular podcast about a number of topics.
Strigl says they discussed "Topics include: Vinnie's upcoming touring plans, Robert Fleischman, Vicki Peterson, Felix Cavaliere, his current guitar playing ability, his upcoming book, his appearance at the Chiller Theatre Expo in NJ (April 27th - 29th), the 2018 Atlanta Kiss Expo, a summer tour of Australia, the rumors about him, his guitar gear, his dislike of drummers, KISS songs with drum machines and much more."
Vinnie also recently took to Facebook to share this exciting news with fans, "I have been talking to promoters about a Vinnie Tour. So these are the plans and let's hope they materialize. If they don't I will be sad... but this is it so far as I know to share with you. The promoters want to do a Vinnie Acoustic Tour in key cities and when that is done, then...
"The Vinnie Vincent Electric Full Shredd Tour - fasten your seatbelts baby! Now I know that will be fun. By the way... getting in shape and been dropping lots of weight. Should be at my old weight in a few months." Listen to the Talking Metal interviewhere.
The new effort will be the follow-up to the acclaimed band's 2006 album "10,000 Days" and Keenan recently jokingly compared it to Guns N' Roses' infamously delayed "Chinese Democracy" album.
He addressed the delay during his interview with Lars (via Classic Rock). He explained, "There's a lot of timing issues with Tool getting to the studio, I always kind of gauge where they're at, and try to figure out where things are going. If I see a window where, 'OK, it doesn't look like things are going to get done any time soon' - because I need certain pieces to do my job - if I see there's a window, that might expand based on me going, 'I'm gonna go do something then.' That's why you had a lot of Puscifer for many years.
He then added, "I felt like if I was to go back and do another Puscifer record, someone was going to sneak into my bedroom and slit my throat, so I figured I'd go and call Billy Howerdel of A Perfect Circle and see where he's at with music and it just so happened he had a nice stack of ideas."
The band recruited an assortment of producers to work on "Come Tomorrow" including John Alagia, Mark Batson, Rob Cavallo and Rob Evans and recorded the new album at studios in Seattle, Los Angeles and Charlottesville.

"This is a very special song to all of us and really brings out a new dynamic that we've been wanting to achieve with Dark Divine." The band also said that they will soon be revealing their plans for a summer tour. Until then, watch the new videohere.
The group released two studio albums together, "Only To Rise" in 2015 and the follow up in 2017 "Unified," but they never hit the road to support either release and Sweet was asked about the group during an epparance on the Focus On Metal podcast.
He was on the show to talk about the brand new Stryper album and had this to say about the project with Lynch, "George didn't do a lot of promoting and a lot of pushing with those albums.
"It gets to be exhausting for me when I feel like I'm the only guy really pushing it. And that's not to take anything away from George; it's just a fact. I'm one of those guys where I want everybody in the band pushing and promoting equally as much, as they should be, or why are you doing it?
"I'm at that stage right now where I'm feeling like the fire is kind of dwindling. I don't want it to; I want to pour some gasoline on the fire and ignite it again. Maybe that'll happen but it's quite possible that it won't." Listen to the full interviewhere.

"This is your opportunity to possess the experience of The Darkness Live, as perceived by your ears, leaving your eyes free to scan the road ahead for obstacles, or to watch Emmerdale with the sound off, or to mould clay, or to darn socks, or to look at the beautiful artwork in this magnificent gatefold.

The song isn't typical of how we normally write. Usually, I'll have a riff or two and show it to Brian and Thomas at practice. We might play the riff for a few minutes and then move on. I'll keep working on it at home, and bring back an almost finished song. With 'Lowered Expectations', I had the main riff and brought it to practice. We rarely just "jam", but we started to play the riff over and over again while I mumbled some nonsense to figure out vocal melodies. The vocals and lead guitar part all came very organically within maybe a 10 minute period. It was an all around collaborative effort. The bass following the lead near the end was the finishing touch. We referred to it as the "RUSH section" of the song.
Lyrically, it's about just giving up on life. Not necessarily in a depressing way. Just accepting that it doesn't really get any better and finally being content with who you are. You can't fit in the mold all the time, and you might not be destined for greatness, but that's ok.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the forthcoming albumright here!
