Hatebreed, Type O On Spring Jager Music Tour

Running twice a year for six years straight, this Spring Jägermeister Music Tour continues the momentum with a co-headlining bill featuring Hatebreed and Type O Negative. Support will come from the Canadian metallers 3 Inches of Blood.

Hatebreed have been touring non-stop in support of their 2006 release “Supremacy” and look forward to another up-close encounter with Jägermeister. “Having the opportunity to headline the Jägermeister Music Tour like our friends from Slayer and Slipknot is a tremendous honor.” says frontman, Jamey Jasta. “Jägermeister has supported heavy music in so many different ways and they continue to bring together the best of the best in metal. The Spring Tour will be no different and co-headlining with our friends from Type O Negative makes it that much sweeter.”

New Yorkers, Type O Negative hit the metal scene in 1991. Many of today’s rockers have acknowledged the measure of Type O Negative’s influence in their own work. The band is fired up to tour with their SPV Records debut, “Dead Again.”. Peter Steele of Type O Negative says, “We’ve always had serious respect for everything Jägermeister does in music and headlining their Tour has been a long-time goal of ours. It’s an even greater accomplishment to have a co-headlining band like Hatebreed along for the ride with us.”

“We thought long and hard before putting this tour together and feel these two bands are a perfect fit for the Spring Jägermeister Music Tour,” says Rick Zeiler, Director of Strategic Marketing for Jägermeister. “We’ve been doing this long enough to know who will work well on our Tour and feel the synergy is perfect. Get ready, metal fans -- this will definitely be one of the hardest tours we've ever done!”

The Tour will rock through June and each show will be rounded out with a local Jägermeister sponsored band. For about 25 bucks, fans will not only have the opportunity to experience a great show, but also have a chance to snag some great Jägermeister prizes and giveaways like JägerMusic compilation CD’s, as well as plenty of Jägermeister shirts, hats, and more. Other prizes provided by Tour sponsors include custom items from Schecter Guitars, Peavey Electronics, and JVC Mobile Entertainment.

Type O Negative To Re-release New Album

Just in time for Valentine's Day, goth/rock legends TYPE O NEGATIVE have announced the February 12 release of two special editions of their acclaimed new album "Dead Again".

The deluxe CD version will contain a bonus DVD with exclusive live performances, interviews and studio videos. The discs will be repackaged in a special red cover. A limited-edition triple-vinyl box set will also be released and features "Dead Again" on high-quality 180-gram vinyl. The vinyl box set will contain the bonus DVD, along with an exclusive t-shirt and mp3 files of the album.

In other TYPE O NEGATIVE news, the stunning new video for "September Sun" will be making its small-screen debut on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" this Saturday, January 12 during the first hour of the broadcast.

TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly and guitarist Kenny Hickey will take part in several signing sessions during this year's NAMM show (National Association of Music Merchants), which runs from January 17 to January 20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

The signing schedule for Johnny and Kenny at NAMM for Saturday, January 19:

Kenny:

3 p.m. - Schecter

Johnny:

1 p.m. - Latin Percussion
2 p.m. - Pearl Drums
3 p.m.- Sabian Cymbals

Rounded out by bassist Hank Hell (INHUMAN) and guitarist Matt Brown (ex-SUPERMASSIV), SEVENTH VOID contines TYPE O's tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, "stonier" flavor.

The band's upcoming album will reportedly be co-mixed by Vinnie Paul (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN).

Type O Negative Drummer Talks Side Project

Alex Zander of MK Magazine recently conducted an interview with TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

MK Magazine: The last time I saw you… You said, "Hey, check out my new band SEVENTH VOID." Now that I have, I must admit, I like it a lot. Is there any kind of recording available other than what's online?

Johnny Kelly: It's one of those things, Kenny and I have been so busy in the last year and a half with TYPE O and DANZIG and stuff. Whenever there are breaks in between we go in and try to finish what we are doing. We had this break in between the TYPE O tours Kenny was able to finish a lot of vocal s and most of his guitar parts. Now we have this other guitar player Matt Brown. He has to finish a few of his things and a few vocal things then we have to wait on Vinnie Paul [HELLYEAH, PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN].

MK Magazine: Vinnie Paul is playing on it?

Johnny Kelly: Vinnie Paul is producing it.

MK Magazine: Alright, I saw on the myspace page his label was one in the top of your friends list.

Johnny Kelly: It is looking like we are going to release it on that label.

MK Magazine: Is that the same label that the collaboration with David Allen Coe, REBEL MEETS REBEL, was released on?

Johnny Kelly: Yeah, REBEL MEETS REBEL. Kenny really digs this band. We have been working on this band for the better part of four years, you know, when ever time allowed. One time just before Dime (Dimebag Darrell) the guys were in New York. Tommy Victor [PRONG] was there and we all just hung out on the at Irving Plaza until 6:00 in the morning. We played a couple of track for Dime, and Dime flipped out about it and that is how this all started with Vince. Every time I'd see him he'd ask how the band was going and I told him it was going okay but we are really having a hard time with mixes. The recording is going well but it just isn't coming through when we are trying to mix it. He said, "Why don't you let me have a crack at it?" I was like… "Really? It would be an honor." He (Vince) said when Dime heard that all he did was talk about you guys, saying how much he loved it, so it would be an honor for me to work on it. So I sent him a track and he sent something back to my house and said he only had a little time to work on it. It just clicked. He got it and knew exactly what to do to make it sound great.

MK Magazine: How much do you have recorded?

Johnny Kelly: We have a whole album's worth of material. But like I said between every ones schedules it has been really hard to just sit down and say it's finished that is it. Now we are getting close and when this is done we will be able to finish the recordings, it should take longer than just a few days actually.

MK Magazine: So as far as TYPE O NEGATIVE what is happening after this tour, as far as the band? I haven't heard anything about a record but obviously the label [SPV] has been great to you.

Johnny Kelly: Yeah, they have done a really good job. They really put their best foot forward.

MK Magazine: That last Roadrunner record I loved it, it's one of my, vary favorite pieces of work that I own from you guys as a band. Roadrunner just dropped the ball on that fucking thing. They seriously did.

Johnny Kelly: The impression that I got from that is, because they knew we were at the end of our contract, they were just cutting their losses on it. Basically what they were telling us is that if you re-sign with us again we'll work this record really hard. Which kind of goes against any business principle. You still invested in something. Just because you aren't going to have the band back, why aren't you going to maximize the return on your investment?

MK Magazine: Jon at SPV couldn't wait to tell me that you'd signed with them. He said Zander don't tell anybody. We got them. They're in good hands.

Johnny Kelly: From the get-go we wanted to go with them in Europe. They're pretty well established over there. They are a very good label and they want to use us as their cornerstone for making a presence in the U.S. They made us an offer for a worldwide deal and it was great. Compared to what everyone else was offering their offer blew it out of the water. So it seemed pretty obvious what we needed to do. So far it's been pretty good. Any kind of record store I go into I see our records there. Before the record came out they did a ton of print ads.

Type O Negative To Reissue "Dead Again"

Jesse Capps of RockConfidential.com recently conducted an interview with TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

RockConfidential.com: You guys have been out on the road for your Halloween tour. How was it this year?

Johnny: It's always been something of a tradition up until the past couple of years. There were various setbacks and we've always had to pull out at the last minute. Every Halloween we'd always go out on a relatively short run of dates and have a good time. It always brings out the craziest fans. This time around we've got LORDI with us and they're the best Halloween band you can think of. We've been having a really good time.

RockConfidential.com: There was a couple of years where TYPE O was off the map for whatever reason. Did that make you more nervous or anxious to get in the studio and start working on a new record?

Johnny: It was a little bit of both. You can sit at home and not do much and you get very apprehensive and want to get back on the road. At the same time you realize it's been a couple of years and you're not sure what the climate is. Are people still interested in TYPE O NEGATIVE? Are they gonna come out? Are they gonna pick up the record? There's always that little bit of uncertainity. You're a little nervous. Ever since the Internet you never know what's going to happen. Everything is so instant.

RockConfidential.com: That may be why people download music — not just because it's free but they can sit on their ass and do it!

Johnny: When I was a kid they were talking that cassettes would be the end of the record industry! At least you had to go to your friend's house to grab the record!

RockConfidential.com: What did you do during the downtime with the band?

Johnny: I was spending time with my daughter. I played in DANZIG. I play in a LED ZEPPELIN tribute at home with some friends of mine. Kenny and I have another band that we've been working on for a couple of years.

RockConfidential.com: "Dead Again" was the first album away from Roadrunner. Was it a relief or a hassle to switch labels?

Johnny: At first it was weird because we really weren't sure what we were walking into. So far it's been a change for the better. We're definitely a high priority at SPV and they've really busted their butts to make a strong presence for the record. They did a lot of promotion for it. They did a lot of things to let everybody know that there was a record out. We've done two videos for it. They've been really aggressive about working the album. We moved a little bit higher on the food chain here.

RockConfidential.com: Would you say "Dead Again" was a hard record to make?

Johnny: At times. There was a point where we spent months and months in the studio. It seemed like it was taking forever. Various setbacks would come up. When it came time to record we did basic tracks in a week. The things that took the longest were the vocals and the lyrics.

RockConfidential.com: What's it like when TYPE O NEGATIVE gets together to write songs?

Johnny: It's just a matter of getting to work and getting the studio booked. Where we go we have our own lock and key. We can go play for as long as we want. Some days we would sit in the studio all day long. Some days somebody would walk in cranky and we'd wind up getting into an argument and rehearsal was over in 45 minutes! Sometimes is was fun and sometimes it was a pain in the butt. We knew we were in there for a reason. All of us were concerned about making it the best thing we could.

RockConfidential.com: Do you usually write the music first and work on lyrics later or have you ever written the music around lyrics?

Johnny: It's the music first and then Peter will get an idea after hearing the song. It will give him an idea what to write the song about. All the music is written first — at least the basic melody and song structure. Then it takes a life of its own and creates its own identity.

RockConfidential.com: I saw you guys open for MÖTLEY CRÜE on their tour with John Corabi after Vince Neil left. That ended up being a strange tour for the CRÜE. What do you remember about it?

Johnny: When it first started out we were playing in sheds. It ended up not being all that successful for them and they were expecting more people. A lot had changed. I thought it was great when it scaled down and they were doing the theater thing. I thought it was better. I thought the band was better. The songwriting was a lot stronger. That's my favorite MÖTLEY record. I think they were trying to be something that they used to be instead of capitalizing and working hard on what they had in their hands. For us it was a win-win situation. A bad show for MÖTLEY CRÜE was 3,000 people. Had we played that town alone we'd maybe be playing to 30 people!

RockConfidential.com: What's up after this tour?

Johnny: I'm not really sure. We're going to re-release "Dead Again" with different artwork and there's going to be an accompanying DVD with it. We just shot a video for "September Sun". That's all I know of at the moment!

Type O Negative Frontman Talks Current Album

KNAC.com's Charlie Steffens recently caught up with TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele to discuss the band's current album, Dead Again, and everything in between. The following is an excerpt from the extensive interview, which reportedly lasted almost four hours (!):

On rock n' roll:
“I believe that the true definition of a rock band is to upset people and that’s the reason rock became rock in the late 50’s, because the country was pretty right-wing. So when rock came out—being left-wing—that upset people. I will admit to being slightly right-wing. I consider myself to be a conscientious conservative. I am pro-police, pro-government, and pro-parent. Because the country has shifted so far to the left that even if you are mid-wing, still you are upsetting people. So, all these trendoid rock bands are just preaching to the choir. I have, in the past, gone out of my way to upset people and fortunately it worked. That’s why I can say CARNIVORE and Type O Negative are true rock bands, because your parents aren’t going to like this music. And if they do like it you better find different parents.”

On inspiration:
“I’ve always liked orchestral music, especially marching music like John Phillip Sousa. I also play sousaphone and tuba. And I play string bass. I guess you could call bass a guitar, so to speak. But I was always fascinated by the definition of functions, like what makes a bass player a bass player. I got the answer. The answer is you are the bridge between rhythm and harmony. You gotta go with the drums but you gotta fill the bottom end at the same time. That’s a bassist. Which disqualifies me; because I play bass/rhythm guitar and I play mostly chords. A failure again."

“My life is not so exciting that I could document it verbatim and make it into an interesting song. So I have to exaggerate. I take a few different things that really did happen and I string them together and make it into one song. On Bloody Kisses there’s a song, 'Death In The Family', and everyone thinks it’s about a woman. It was about a cat that I had since I was 17 that died. My life is pretty boring. It mostly revolves around Saturday morning cartoons and TV dinners. Like, I really wanted to marry Mrs. Swanson. If she fucked the way that she cooked then I’d be very happy, because I would know what I was going to get every time. Either way it’s going in the oven, right?”

On outside interests:
"I don’t like to go out, because I don’t like to be recognized. I don’t like to be looked at. I really don’t like to be onstage, but however, I’m a masochist, so it’s the perfect punishment.”

Type O Negative Member's Illness Delays Show

According to fan reports, TYPE O NEGATIVE's appearance at the U.K.'s Birmingham Academy on Wednesday, June 20 was delayed by over an hour and concluded after a mere 40 minutes, followed by intense booing by a disappointed, capacity crowd.

The management representative's official statement reads as follows:


"[Wednesday] night Peter [Steele, bass/vocals] got off of the bus not able to breathe properly due to the mold in the back lounge. He went straight to hotel. When the runner arrived to pick him up, I was told that he had to get someone to go up to room with him and that Peter was semi-conscious. He was having severe breathing problems. He managed to get to the venue — and was on time — but upon his arrival and seeing his condition, I immediately asked for the paramedics to attend to him. The paramedic administered oxygen and were concerned enough that there was discussion of bringing a doctor onsite. They also called for two other paramedics to consult, which resulted in more delay of stage time.

"Towards the end of set, Peter took his normal break but was still feeling very bad and the break went longer than usual. The bottle thrown at the end is a regular thing that Peter does, it was tossed gently to a fan in the crowd and not done or meant with any malintent or malice towards the audience."

There has been no statement by any members of the band at this time.
