The Rockstar Ramblings: Video Marathon

This week a real treat with (lucky) seven new videos featuring girls with cranium accessories, vampires, F-bombs, and of course, sass.

I can dig the black and white and the groovy sound (dig and groovy in the same sentence – yes, I’m high right now), but not so sure about the Michael Jackson style marching jacket. Also, the awkward lean into the guitar player makes me feel weird down there…

Beautiful Creatures Signs To Spitfire Records

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES have inked a deal with Spitfire Records. The group's sophomore album, "Deuce", is scheduled for release on August 23.

In a recent interview with Glam-Metal.com, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES bassist Kenny Kweens said of the new album, "'Deuce' is a little heavier and I think the songs have grown to a more mature state, not too mature of course; it's only rock 'n' roll, for Christ's sake. We definitely stepped out of our box on a few songs like 'Never' and 'Ton of Lead', but ultimately it still sounds like BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, it still has the same spirit. With this band you can never forecast what direction we will head into. To us if something sounds cool, we go with it. We don't sit down and think, ok, what's big at radio right now. We just do what we do, because we think it's cool and that's all that matters."

"Deuce" was released in Japan on April 21 via JVC Records with the following track listing: More...
