Metallica Officially Weenies- Aiken's Not Cool- The Noose For Vegoose- Spill Canvas Doing OK with EP- Stone Temple Black Francis
We printed a rumor about this recently, now it looks like it is official that Vegoose has gone kaput. Las Vegas music festival Vegoose will not take place in 2008, one of its producers told Billboard.com. "We're not saying it's killed, it's just not going to happen in 2008," said Jonathan Mayers.
The Spill Canvas is set to release the digital EP Honestly, I'm Doing Okay, on May 13th. The EP features acoustic versions of No Really, I'm Fine standout tracks "All Over You" and "Saved" as well as a previously unreleased b-side "Lay It On Me." Fans can purchase Honestly, I'm Doing Okay exclusively through Amazon on May 13th.
tracks: Lay It On Me - All Over You - Saved (acoustic) - Gold Dust Woman - All Over You (acoustic)
What was a rumor yesterday is a official today! Metallica are weenies! Wait, sorry we got that wrong. They are confirmed to headline KROQ's Weenie Roast, which will take place on May 17 at Irvine Meadows (sorry we won't print their new corp name, unless that corp wants to pay us for the advertising.)
Having Metallica headline continues (the self proclaimed "world famous") KROQ's tradition of booking headliners that you normally will not find on their airwaves. KISS anyone? What a crock, or is it kroq?. Aside from Lars and co, the Offspring will co-headline and the show will also include the Raconteurs, Rise Against, Bad Religion, Pennywise, the Bravery, Flogging Molly, Seether, Scars on Broadway and more. A Kroq full of info
Black Francis is back with a new seven song, mini-LP entitled Svn Fngrs, available now from Cooking Vinyl Records. What you CAN'T find on the album is a remix of "The Seus," done by the Infadels. But because we're generous like that, you can download here. This remix, along with two others, will be released digitally on an EP called The Seus. Black Francis will be also playing a handful of shows this summer with the one and only Stone Temple Pilots.
