Commented vocalist Mike Williams: "EyeHateGod are excited to head out on this next USA trek and ready to do damage. EHG tours are one of a kind; each unique with its own abusive, miserable, broken features. Miss them now and maybe miss them forever..."

Arson Anthem, the band featuring former Pantera, Superjoint Ritual and current Down frontman Phil Anselmo, along with Hank Williams III (also formerly of Superjoint Ritual), Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod, Outlaw Order) and Colin Yeo of Ponykiller fame, has announced that they will be releasing their debut full length album, "Insecurity Notoriety" on October 12th through Anselmo's Housecore Records.
Anselmo comments: "I'm not sure what it is... but when Hank III, Colin, Mike and I get into "Arson" mode, time stops. We know the mission is to write unforgiving hardcore inspired by a slew of '80's bands... but the result is its own animal, yet not too terrible removed from the genuine article.
"With that said, Insecurity Notoriety is like listening to an old favorite blast from the skanking past... vicious, snotty, grating and anthemic! I know it's typical to call a modern-day hardcore band 'fresh' or 'different', especially when it's your band, but... it is! This effort makes our first EP sound like child's play, as it should. Play it over and over! Piss everyone off!"
North Carolina doom metal band BLACK SKIES, who kicked off their US tour July 1st, are currently with a new lineup and new songs. Founding members Kevin Clark and Michelle Temple are joined by recent recruit, ex-Des Ark drummer Tim Herzog.
Said Michelle from the road, "The our is going great! In Pittsburgh, Chicago and Iowa City where we've played before and people have seen the band's various lineups, the new material has been very well-received, some saying it's our best yet! This was our first time as a band to Columbus and Madison. Both shows went really well and we plan to make these regular stops on future tours. We've made new friendships with some great bands as well. My personal favorite so far was Rebreather from Youngstown. Awesome guys and amazing band! We have the night off tonight (July 6th), our only day off during the 24-day tour, so we're going to find a good spot to camp somewhere then it's off to Denver to play with Black Lamb! We're looking forward to getting back at it and playing every night until the tour ends in Nashville. We all feel very grateful for everyone's support and for the ability to be able to do this!"

People turned out in droves to see the show with so many amazing bands on the bill. If they couldn’t afford to get in, they would hang outside and listen because it was just too good to miss completely. The slow, swampy, southern metal was complimented so well by the high humidity and heat of the night. Beer flowed (everywhere) and ears became numb as each of four bands took turns breaking amps.
