3 Wants To See You Rabid For Their Music Video

Progressive metal band 3 has issued the following update about wanting fan input/submissions for their new music video for the song "Rabid Animals":

“We are shooting our new video for "Rabid Animals" next week and we need your help!

"Please send in a 15 second web cam clip of yourself foaming at the mouth and staring at your computer screen, as if you were watching a live concert on TV. If you need help with the foam, try a 1/4 tablet of a alka-seltzer and some toothpaste. Try to make the lighting moody and interesting but not too dark (we need to see you!). These are the basic guidelines but feel free to be creative. Set your web cam to the best quality video setting (h.264 or mpeg4 are good) and then email the clip to: threedomfighter@yahoo.com

"If the file is too big for your email try sending it via www.sendthisfile.com or www.yousendit.com (both are free).

"WARNING -Do not foam onto your keyboard or other sensitive equipment! It doesn't take much alka-seltzer, if you use a whole one it will probably come out your nose! the sooner you get it to us the better, but the deadline is Thursday October 22!"

Dream Theater Slays Calgary Fans

Progressive Nation 2008 swung by Calgary, AB this weekend for a two-night musical extravaganza, featuring Dream Theater, Opeth, 3 and Between the Buried and Me.

While much of the sold-out crowd was still working its way through the doors at Friday’s show, the Woodstock, NY-based 3 kicked things off in MacEwan Hall. A wild blend of acoustic and electric guitars and a keyboardist pulling double duty as a second drummer fired up the crowd and a lot of people who came just for Opeth or Dream Theater were drawn into the hall, rather than going straight for the beer gardens – a rare feat for opening bands at shows of this caliber. A high energy stage presence and an increasing heaviness and rapidity to their music left the crowd wanting more – and 3’s frontman Joey Eppard probably wanting some new guitar strings as they snapped up from his acoustic at the end of their final song, “Amaze Disgrace.” When I caught up with him after the show and commented on the serious string breakage going on up there, he gleaned proudly and stated “I broke all of them!” Turns out the guy plays so hard, his Knucklehead strings can’t always keep up. Sometimes they stand up to the abuse, sometimes they don’t. Somebody get this guy an endorsement! More...

Seattle Gets Progressive with Progressive Nation

The Progessive Nation Tour’s headlining acts are a match made in heaven for prog fans. Combining Opeth and Dream Theater on the same bill is something that should have happened a long time ago, and sweetening the pot with prog newcomers Three and the more experimental Between the Buried and Me created a perfect storm of progressive metal. To further set this tour apart from similar acts the bands chose to use almost entirely fully seated venues instead of the typical standing setup. More...

Dream Theater Announce Dates With Opeth And More

New York progressive metal pioneers DREAM THEATER are set to unveil their maiden voyage of "Progressive Nation", a package tour they will headline that will also feature the talents of OPETH, 3 and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME.

The tour is the brainchild of DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy, who explains, "I've been wanting to assemble a package tour like this for many years now. With all of the festivals and package tours that go through America, I've been talking with our manager and agent for over 10 years now about doing something that focuses on the more progressive, musician-oriented side of hard rock and metal. I decided it was time to stop talking the talk, lace up and finally walk the walk."

While DREAM THEATER co-headlined 2005's Gigantour alongside MEGADETH, as well as embarking on previous co-headlining runs with both QUEENSRŸCHE and JOE SATRIANI, they have primarily built their 22-year career on the road playing solely to their own audience. Portnoy comments: "I've always prided myself on personally hand picking new and exciting opening acts for DREAM THEATER in the past. Bands such as PORCUPINE TREE, SYMPHONY X, SPOCK'S BEARD, FATES WARNING, PAIN OF SALVATION and KING'S X. In all of these cases, it was important for me to pick bands that I admire and respect but also ones that I know our fans will enjoy. And I think playing with DT has helped expand all of those band's fanbases as a direct result. I am hoping Progressive Nation will continue to do the same thing in offering an audience for more daring and experimental acts that otherwise may not get the mainstream exposure they so rightly deserve."

Joining the bill for this inaugural run is Sweden's legendary OPETH who have been enjoying an ever-growing and expanding audience of their own for many years now. DT's Roadrunner Records labelmates will be ready to unleash their new album come next spring and Progressive Nation should be a great launching pad for their next world tour cycle. Guitarist/Vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt comments: "We're very excited about this upcoming tour with DREAM THEATER. It will be the first tour that we're doing in support of our upcoming record, and also somewhat of a dream come true personally as I've been a fan of theirs for a long time. It's quite intimidating to be on the bill with such amazing musicians but obviously we'll try and give them a run for their money and pull out a few nice licks of our own. I guess we'll need to practice a little bit for this....how boring! Yet, I can't wait for this tour to start and I'm sure we'll have a blast with the DT guys as well as together with the other bands on the bill!"

Also on the bill with their unique blend of pop, funk and hard rock is upstate New York's 3 who issued the following statement: "3 is very pleased to announce its participation in the Progressive Nation tour. For well over a decade DREAM THEATER has been the vanguard of progressive rock and we are completely psyched to flex with these heavyweights, playing much of our new record 'The End is Begun'. This package will rock and awe fans everywhere as one of the most important tours of the year. It's a progressive way of music, a progressive way of life....welcome to the Progressive Nation tour."

North Carolina's BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME are enjoying rave reviews and critical acclaim for their latest CD "Colors" and are looking forward to sharing the stage each night with both DREAM THEATER and OPETH. Vocalist/keyboardist Tommy Rogers comments: "We are very excited to be touring with two bands that have been such an integral part of our musical upbringing. It is a wonderful opportunity to have our music heard by new ears." More...

3 Announce Mini Tour With Yakuza

After a successful show in Japan, 3 are back in the states to tour with YAKUZA. Singer of 3, Joey states, “We’re very excited to reconnect with all our friends in the Midwest and beyond. The band is all psyched up from our Japanese debut, (where we acquired some really cool samurai swords and trained to become ninjas) so basically, anything could happen at these shows.”

Joey reflects on the recent trip to Japan, “This was one of the greatest experiences of our lives. The Japanese are true music lovers and fully embraced what we do. We can’t wait to go back!”

How’s the overall response to their latest album, Wake Pig? Joey says, “Spirits are high for us right now. Reaction to Wake Pig has been overwhelmingly positive the world over. There’s nothing more inspiring than to see your art bridge oceans and connect distant cultures.

Yakuza Announce Shows In Support of "Samsara"

Prog-minded, jazz-inspired Chicago act Yakuza is gearing up for the March 21 release of Samsara, the band's Prosthetic Records debut, with a run of dates alongside Metal Blade's equally prog-minded 3. The dates are set to kick off in the Midwest and run through the south and southwest. Having previously played alongside varied acts including Opeth, Mastodon, Ken Vandermark, and Sonic Youth, the new confirmed dates are listed below with more to come.

"Happy to get out on the road again, it's been a while," comments singer/saxophonist, Bruce Lamont. "Can't wait to play the songs off of Samsara. We also have a few new tunes we've been working on that we might test out. It's very cool going out with 3...Been digging their tunes, and I am really looking forward to sharing the stage with them."

Samsara is the follow-up to 2002's highly-regarded Way of the Dead, recorded with producer/engineer Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Isis) at Volume Studios in the band's hometown Chicago. "Bayles is killer," Lamont says of the producer. "His mentality going in is that this is his name too, so he puts in every effort necessary. He's a total workhorse, the first guy in the studio, the last one to leave. He's not afraid to tell you what he's thinking, but it's always for the good of the recording. We will work together with him again."

Samsara features guest spots from musicians Jim Baker, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Sanford Parker, and Mastodon's Troy Sanders among the album's ten tracks. As previously reported, the album's cover art, handled by drummer James Staffel, is available on the band's MySpace page along with the album's lead track, "Cancer of Industry."

YAKUZA tour dates:

3/25 Chicago, Il - Beat Kitchen (Yakuza Record release show with 3 and Angel Eyes)
4/01 St. Louis, MO - Creepy Crawl
4/03 Lawrence, KS - Granada Theater
4/05 Baton Rouge, LA - The Darkroom
4/06 San Antonio, TX - The Sanctuary
