"Due to Northern California wild-fires, July 11th (Sacramento) Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Performance Rescheduled to Monday July 14th

"Concerned for the health and safety of our patrons, performers and employees, Live Nation announces a date change for Sacramento's scheduled Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival at The Sleep Train Amphitheater.

"As we enter the second week of wild fires, and the recent 100+ degree temperatures, it is in the best interest of all involved that the tour date be rescheduled as conditions are expected to improve over the weekend. A variety of city and county officials have urged area residents to avoid long-term exposure to the outdoors and limit outdoor recreational activities."

"We sincerely regret this unavoidable cancellation and apologize to fans for any disappointment caused," says tour co-founder John Reese. "And while we're thankful that the show can take place on Monday, our thoughts are with the families in this area during this difficult time. Refunds will be available at original point of purchase."

Walls Of Jericho Posts New Song Online

Walls Of Jericho has posted the new song "The American Dream" on their MySpace page.

The track is taken from the their forthcoming album of the same name, which will be released later next month through Trustkill.

"We tried some new things without doing the same thing over and over," explains guitarist Chris Rawson. "We wanted to make sure to do what we do and not go too far off the beaten track, but at the same time keep ourselves interested and excited. I would say it's more aggressive than With Devils Amongst Us All, with lots of parts to circle-pit to, so put on your running shoes and start running your ass in a circle!"

It Dies Today Announces New Tour and Video

IT DIES TODAY has just announced a new tour and a new music video for their upcoming album. The band will kick off a tour in August with labelmates Walls Of Jericho as well as 36 CrazyFists and more.

Their new album, "Lividity," will be out in early fall and the band is in the studio now recording. They will be filming the first video off the new album for the song "Thank You For Drinking" next week.

Singer Jason Wood checked in with an update on the video and song: "The song's slogan, like a double-entendre, translates into a so-called friend that through drinking on their own accord shows their true personality. For example, a good friend that ends up being an asshole afte getting drunk at a party or bar."

The video will be shot on location at a bar the band fequents in Sanborn, NY called "The Walmore Inn." The video will feature a friend of the band who's had too much to drink before he even gets to the bar and proceeds to start shit with everyone throughout the song, until the band has had enough and starts a bar fight. Keep your eyes peeled for the video in July, and some webisodes of the writing and recording process from It Dies Today.

The latest It Dies Today tour dates follow. More...

Walls Of Jericho Leave Devildriver Tour

WALLS OF JERICHO have posted the following update:

“We can honestly say that it is a huge disappointment on our end. This has been a tour that we have been extremely excited about and looking forward to for several months and to back out was very tough for us. However our label (Trustkill Records) has decided to pull tour support funding for this tour as they feel finishing our next record is the number one priority. Our management and label both feel that we need to be writing our new record in preparation for a spring recording and with this tour we just don’t have enough time to accomplish all things. With that said the decision has been handed down and we are forced to cancel. However, this will ensure a summer/late summer release for our new as yet untitled full-length record which we have been working very hard on as of late and should turn out to be nothing short of incredible. The extra time devoted to this record is going to pay off big time and we should be able to come out with a record we can truely be proud of and excited about. We would like to apologize to all the bands on this tour for pulling out so late and we would like to also apologize to all the people who were looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks.”

We have one of the greatest legends in metal playing right before us and we have a punk rock band opening for us. We’re going to do an hour to an hour-and-a-half on stage every night, and we’re going to throw in a lot of songs we have never played live before. There will be more of a production on stage, too. With lights and all. We will be playing a lot of stuff from our new record. And there will be some surprises, too, so come out and see the show!”

Hardcore to Me

I remember being at an Articles of Faith show back in the early 1980s in Chicago and thinking, "This is where I belong, these are my people." It's not 1982 anymore and you can't expect things to sound the same. The lines have blurred and you can nearly start a riot on some corners trying to define who and what is hardcore. Much of what is called hardcore these days has strong metal influences and sounds much different from what was called hardcore back in the day.

I'm a fan of lots of the old school stuff which came out of the punk scene but I also like a some of the newer 'metalcore' stuff. That being said, here are some of the recordings that are in my player or in the car on a regular basis: More...
