No jokes here. Slipknot's Shawn 'Clown' Crahan is tackling some pretty big issues.
While the band is taking a slight hiatus until their new album is set to be released sometime in late 2014 or early 2015, Crahan has decided that he will continue with his passion of making documentaries. His next project involves a very touchy issue -- eating disorders.
He's even reaching out to fellow Slipknot fans and the general public. Here's a look at a message that was posted on the band's message board at their website:
Or something like that....
If you stayed up last night to catch David Letterman you got the privilage of seeing Queens of the Stone Age perform one of their new tunes.
Hot on the heels of their album release '...Like Clockwork' from earlier this week, the group graced the Letterman audience with one killer performance of "My God Is The Sun."
Apparently the back drop and animation was pretty killer, too.
The new album features special guests Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Elton John, Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys, and several others.
You can get the complete recap of the performance and other information here.
Check out the video below and let us know what you thought of the killer performance!
That would normally sound disgusting on so many levels. However, we are referring to the fact that Pearl Jam might be releasing their new single as early as July of this year!
All Access orginally posted the listing on their website but has since removed the post. It doesn't seem too far fetched considering the band has said on multiple occasions that they are so close to releasing their new album.
You can read about the sound of the new album here.
According to the removed post, 'Mind Your Manners' will be here on July 16th. Do we really have to wait until then to find out if this is the real deal or not? Give us some kind of hint, Pearl Jam!
Anyway you spin it, the groups tenth album will be here this year and is sure to be a hit.
WE. CAN'T. FREAKIN'. WAIT.
Did you know that, along with his already hectic schedule, Brian 'Head' Welch is a columnist for the rock website loudwire.com? True story. As a matter of fact he recently sat down with Buckcherry's Josh Todd while they were all at the same venue getting ready for performances with their respective rock groups.
In this interview, Welch really wanted to dig into the meaning behind some of the new tracks off of Buckcherry's new album 'Confessions' before listeners got a chance to make up their own meanings behind the songs. Not that there's anything wrong with that at all!
You can catch the complete interview from Welch -- along with his bandmate Fieldy -- in the video below.
Side Note: Shortly after Welch performed with KoRn at the 2013 Rock on the Range Festival (where this interview took place), he noted that KoRn's gig was easily one of the groups Top 3 shows of all time.
Yeah, we're officially excited to have the group all together again!
Talk to ya soon...
