Stone Sour unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and was immediately confirmed as one of the most significant hard rock outfits of the 21st century. The self-titled release earned RIAA gold certification while singles “Get Inside” and “Inhale” each received GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance.”

COME WHAT(EVER) MAY followed in 2006 and proved an even greater accomplishment with a top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a #1 entry onto Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another GRAMMY®-nominated single in “30/30-150” on its own way to RIAA gold certification. COME WHAT(EVER) MAY unleashed a series of rock radio classics, including “Sillyworld,” “Made of Scars,” the #1 hit, “Through Glass,” which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s “Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks” while also reaching #2 on “Alternative Songs” and the top 40 on the overall “Hot 100.” The song’s companion video was also a favorite, now with over 44 million individual views at YouTube alone.

Stone Sour’s most recent all-original releases, the monumental HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 1 and HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2, both made top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 just six months apart from one another – the band’s third and fourth consecutive top 10 chart entries. The two-part concept album yielded a string of multi-format rock radio hits, including the top 5 favorites “Absolute Zero,” “Do Me A Favor,” and “Tired,” the latter of which ascended to #1 at Mainstream Rock outlets nationwide.

2015 saw the arrival of STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK, an unprecedented EP in which Stone Sour take on five immortal songs originally performed by such iconic artists as Bad Brains, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe, and Slayer. The EP is highlighted by a stunning rendition of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” featuring distinctive guest vocals from Lzzy Hale of Atlantic recording group Halestorm, STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

Known far and wide as a truly incendiary live act, Stone Sour has built an international fan following through countless headline tours, multi-artist caravans, and performances at such famed festivals as Rock In Rio and the UK’s Download Festival.

Stone Sour is: Corey Taylor (vocals), Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar).

e6192010-253f-4c17-a6f2-6c41dcdb5e0a

 

Regarding the new album—-BH guitarist/lyricist/founding father Jeremy Wagner says:

“BROKEN HOPE studio album number SEVEN?! Un-fucking-believable! I’m floored at how amazing our new album turned out. The songs are relentless and violent and dark and heavy–and ALL from a fresh and ferocious place we haven’t shared before. Moreover, thanks to my new studio and the stellar work of engineering/producing Jedi–SCOTT CREEKMORE–the production is on a sonic level like we’ve never had in our career.

Thanks to my brothers: DAMIAN, MIKE, MATT, DIEGO, and SCOTT–ALL of whom brought their amazing talent and skills not just to the table, but kicked it into the stratosphere! Thank you to WES BENSCOTER for collaborating with us to create the epic/sick/THING-inspired album artwork, and a huge thanks to CENTURY MEDIA worldwide for being in our corner with this new album.

For me personally, I feel MUTILATED and ASSIMILATED is my own finest hour as a guitarist and lyricist since I formed this band as teenager. I ‘ve never felt this inspired before. The album has my strongest riffage to date, it also has Leski riffage on a few songs, it has my best friends on it, and in a crazy twist, I used JEFF HANNEMAN’s guitars to write the album with and used them to track with in honor of his influence on myself AND the world of metal. 

There’s a LOT going on with this new BH album! I can’t wait for you all to hear MUTILATED and ASSIMILATED. DEATH METAL forever!”
Release date: June 23rd 2017

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR

unnamed-12

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have announced The Great Collapse North American tour in continued support of their new LP of the same name. Support will come from TOMBS and MOON TOOTH. Dates kick off in early June and stretch through the first week in July. Tickets will go on sale Friday 4/21.

“We’re happy to announce The Great Collapse North American tour,” says vocalist Joe Badolato. “Tombs and Moon Tooth are sick live bands, and make for a fun mixed bill. A little different than our normal touring partners, but we’re excited to play for some new fans. Lots of new songs on this one, and a few old ones we haven’t pulled out in years.”

Fit For An Autopsy released The Great Collapse on March 17, 2017 via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music in North America and SPV overseas. Initial sales of the album landed the band on a variety of Billboard charts, some of which the first time in the band’s career. The Great Collapse debuted at #6 Hard Music, #9 Indie, #16 Rock and #47 Current Top 200.

Artist Adam Burke was tapped to create the visually stunning cover art seen below.

The Great Collapse is the the band’s fourth full length record, continuing the momentum gained from a solid 200+ days of worldwide touring backing the buzz-worthy release of Absolute Hope Absolute Hell in late 2015, as well The Depression Sessions, a split release with The Acacia Strain and Thy Art Is Murder in 2016.
The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, as it’s devoid of preachy politics or grandstanding soapboxing, but its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive-force fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fourth album, The Great Collapse, doesn’t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene. They embrace the responsibility to put as much devoted purpose into their lyrics and message as they do into their dense, heady, songs, forging a magnificently powerful new post-deathcore.

“When I write a song, I’m trying to feel emotionally connected to it. I really don’t like saying things that don’t matter over music that I want to matter,” says Putney, guitarist, principal songwriter and cofounder. “We’ve always addressed serious topics going back to our first album. We aren’t a politically charged band up on a podium yelling at people – anybody can relate to the aggression, anger, frustration, and sadness often communicated in our music. But we absolutely raise important questions in the lyrics. Those themes are there to discover.”

Putney’s fellow guitarist/cofounder, Patrick Sheridan, strongly agrees. He emphasizes that while the music of Fit For An Autopsy may evolve it will always be aggressive and will always have purpose. “We think it’s important to carry that torch. Somebody’s got to say something about the shit that’s going on. If you’re not using your music, which is a great platform, for something meaningful that you care about on some level, then you’re kind of wasting it.”

unnamed-13

The six-men of the New Jersey based group – which includes vocalist Joe Badolato, bassist Peter Spinazola, third guitarist Tim Howley, and drummer Josean Orta – put maximum intentionality into everything they do. They are constantly challenging themselves as musicians, adding to the band’s overall creative arsenal, connecting with audiences around the world, and supporting one another in the band as individual people.

SEETHER UNVEIL “NOTHING LEFT”

unnamed-11

BAND TO EMBARK ON WORLD TOUR THIS SPRING

SEETHER (Shaun Morgan, vocals/guitar; Dale Stewart, bass/vocals; John Humphrey, drums) have shared a new track called “Nothing Left” from their upcoming album Poison the Parish, due out May 12 through Morgan’s new Canine Riot Records via Concord Music Group.

Poison the Parish was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and marks the first album produced in its entirety by frontman Morgan. Among the heaviest and most emotionally pure efforts of Seether’s illustrious career, the new album embodies the band’s newfound ferocity and resolve.

“In a time when it’s easy to tune out all the monotonous rock, Seether’s Poison the Parish proves the South African outfit still grooves, crushes and rocks harder than all,” affirms Revolver. Alternative Press was similarly impressed stating, “Poison the Parish is a return to the darker and heavier style of music that Seether built their name upon.”

Seether is preparing to embark on the first leg of the Poison the Parish World Tour, which includes headline shows and festival appearances throughout the spring and summer. Every ticket purchase comes with a physical copy of Poison the Parish. Additionally, a portion of all tickets sold for the Poison the Parish World Tour will benefit the Rise Above Fund, which is a subset of Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, the largest suicide prevention organization in the country, and the band’s partner on the Rise Above Fest.

Now in its fifth year, the Rise Above Fest has expanded to two days in 2017 — Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23 at Darling’s Waterfront Park in Bangor, Maine. Performers include Seether, Korn, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Skillet, Halestorm, Falling in Reverse, and more.

Toil and Trouble Burlesque- The Ides of March

For those who are familiar with Shakespeare’s plays I would highly recommend to watch this sassy, and very sexy version of Julius Caesar’s assassination. However if you’re not familiar, I’d suggest you attend to Toil and Trouble’s Burlesque in the future and learn some history in a very naughty mind blowing way.

Each act is portrayed with emotional dances and as you can imagine, taking it all off.  The choice of songs and dance performances were captivating and mesmerizing. Each act was dramatically unique, the crowd was seen cheering and screaming. Without going into much detail, I have selected a few images to show everyone the passionate and beautiful show that was put together.

The Wise Guys have been hard at work on a new record, which will serve as the follow up to their sophomore effort “Peace At All Costs” (2014). Speaking about the upcoming tour and the opportunity to play new material for their fans, Otherwise lead guitarist Ryan Patrick comments:

“We’re ready to get back out on the road and do what we’re meant to do. We’re getting a chance to play all these new songs off of our upcoming album and that makes us very excited. Doing this tour with two bad ass rock outfits like Through Fire & Righteous Vendetta is sure to rumble the Earth and let the Rock Gods know we’re knocking on the doors of some Rock n’ Roll history. Bring your anger, bring your love, bring your hope. See you out there!”
