(New York, N.Y.): Swedish melodic metal forerunners AMARANTHE have officially entered the studio to work on the follow up to 2014’s breakthrough album MASSIVE ADDICTIVE, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon release and which enjoyed healthy U.S. rock radio airplay in support of the singles “Drop Dead Cynical” and “Digital World.”
The new album is due out on Spinefarm in October. Watch the teaser HERE.
AMARANTHE will spend their summer laying waste to stages at all of the relevant European rock festivals before embarking on a near-constant global touring schedule after the album’s release.
“As some of you no doubt have heard by now, we have entered Top Floor studios with Jakob Herrman in Gothenburg to record our fourth album,” said guitarist Olof Morck. “It is extremely exciting to be back in the creative zone after spending two years traveling the whole world in support of MASSIVE ADDICTIVE. We will spend one month here recording drums, bass and guitars before once again moving onto Jacob Hansen’s studio in Denmark for vocal recordings and mixing.”
He continued, “We are beyond thrilled about the new material, which is certainly AMARANTHE‘s most diverse so far; our trademark bleeding edge modern metal is ever present, but fused with an even wider range of genres than before, featuring everything from stadium rock, the latest in pop music innovation and danceable super-hits. Expect these tunes to enter your mind permanently, never to leave, later this year!”
In other AMARANTHE news, they’ve racked up some new certifications. The band’s single “Nexus” went gold and “Amaranthine” and “Hunger” have gone platinum – all in their home country Sweden.
More details about AMARANTHE‘s latest bleeding edge modern metal masterwork will be revealed soon.

‘WITH MY EYES WIDE OPEN: MIRACLES AND MISTAKES ON MY WAY BACK TO KORN‘
OUT TODAY, MAY 17 FROM NELSON BOOKS
NOW AVAILABLE HERE
The latest book from New York Times bestselling author, and KORN co-founder and lead guitarist, BRIAN “HEAD” WELCH, With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles and Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn is officially out today (May 17) from Nelson Books.
With My Eyes Wide Open is the guitarist’s account of the brutal, eye-opening and decade-long trial by fire after leaving KORN, from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps the most inspiring is BRIAN‘s radical decision to rejoin KORN (surrounded by a lifestyle he almost lost everything to) and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family.
Told with humor and no-holds-barred frankness, the raw and brutally honest follow-up to WELCH‘s 2007 bestseller, Save Me From Myself will appeal to a wide range of readers. With My Eyes Wide Open is truly an inspiring story for all.
Written with Carol Traver, the book is 240 pages in length, featuring 16 full color photos from WELCH‘s personal archive. Fans can purchase it at any book retailer including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, ChristianBooks.com and at WELCH‘s official webstore. Specially priced bundled products and limited edition items from BRIAN “HEAD” WELCH and his solo band Love & Death are also available at his official webstore.
In anticipation of the book’s release, WELCH spoke with MusicRadar.com saying, “It’s a mixture of laughter and sadness and just heaviness…it’s like cleaning out your closet. I share a lot of stuff in the book. That’s the way to help people in life, to share your difficulties. You share what you’ve overcome, and I’ve overcome a lot.” He also shared the 10 records that changed his life; check that list out HERE.
Early media praise for With My Eyes Wide Open:
“In his latest book With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Bay to Korn, the brutally honest Welch inspires readers to never give up on their faith even when they are being tested and nearly consumed by the rigors of bad decisions.” -Chris Carpenter, CHRISTIAN BROADCAST NETWORK, 5/16/16
“Welch’s amiable tone and honest assessments about himself and his actions engender sympathy. But it’s his relationship with his daughter that is the core of the book. The struggles – his, hers, theirs – are presented with an almost brutal honesty…You’re left with the story of a man who found out that in order to be in control of himself and his life, he had to let go of whatever control he thought he had – not just in faith, not just in finance, but in people.” -Cesareo Garasa, THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN 5/12/16
“It’s a story about helping his daughter beat her drugs habit and helping get her life back on track with heart breaking decisions. Through prayer he was able to overcome these obstacles as well as to find salvation by reuniting with his old band KORN after a decade of being away. It’s a story many have told… but nobody’s is like this!” –Robert Cavuoto, MYGLOBALMIND.COM, 5/9/16
BRIAN “HEAD” WELCH is the co-founder and lead guitarist of the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum metal band KORN. He is also the bestselling author of the book, Save Me from Myself. For more info, visit brianheadwelch.net and connect onFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.
DON’T KNOCK THE ROCK FILM FESTIVAL (LOS ANGELES) LATE JULY AND AUG. 26 – 28 AT PSYCHO LAS VEGAS
KEY ART BY SHEPARD FAIREY; WIN TICKETS TO PRIVATE LOS ANGELES PREMIERE
The producers behind the eagerly awaited Melvins’ documentary, “The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale,” have announced the first public screenings of the film: Los Angeles’ Don’t Knock The Rock Film Festival in late July and at Psycho Las Vegas the weekend of Aug. 26 to 28, with more screening announcements to follow.
“I always thought it was strange that people didn’t know more about The Melvins and I felt their story needed to be told. The band members had told me that a few people had talked the talk but had never followed up on their threats to make a film about them, so a little over two years ago things really fell into place and now the end product is finished for all to see, ” explained Director and Producer Bob Hannam, who worked in tandem with Ryan Sutherby to bring the film to fruition. “It has been a long labor of love for the both of us and we are excited for people to see the film and understand the workings of a truly great band.”
“The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale” follows the band’s history, with rare behind-the-scenes footage from their early days in Washington to their multiple modern incarnations with an eye on the enduring influence they’ve had throughout their 30-year plus history. The documentary features interviews with Mike Patton, Chris Cornell, Jello Biafra, Gene Simmons, Krist Novoselic, Mark Arm, J. Mascis, Josh Homme, David Yow and many more.
A private premiere in the band’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles takes place on May 21 at The Silent Movie Theater with a few pairs of tickets up for grabs via contests on the documentary’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/melvinstale).

About The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale
“The Colossus Of Destiny – A Melvins Tale” is a film about a band who have defied all the rules, for over 33 years and counting, and still managed to succeed and do it their own way. This is the journey of band members King Buzzo and Dale Crover which leads us from the backwards-waters of the Chehalis River in Washington State, down through the Golden Gate of Northern California, finally settling into the Los Angeles River Basin of Southern California with the rest of the world thrown in along the way.
Witness first hand the beliefs and attitudes, values and obscenities, slows and fasts, triumphs and toils, loves and hates, wits and giggles of a hugely talented and highly influential band. Hear what the countless number of peers, collaborators, understudies, admirers, even haters, have to say about their encounters with The Melvins over the past 3 decades and more. And come away with a lesson in how to survive in the wicked world of the music biz without taking yourself too damn seriously.
