Alaskan metal heavyweights 36 Crazyfists have debuted a brand-new song, “Absent Are The Saints,” from their upcoming album, "The Tide and Its Takers", exclusively on Myspace Metal.

Singer Brock Lindow comments on the song: “I’m excited people are finally getting to hear it. We’ve been sitting on it for a while, so now people outside our circle of friends have a chance to hear the new music. Lyrically, “Absent Are The Saints” is about how some people pray for and wait for change it rather than making it happen themselves. It’s about being proactive about changing your life.”

LiveDaily.com reports: A second stage, more bands and a video-game contest have been added to this summer's Family Values Tour.

The festival's fifth installment is set to kick off July 20 with Korn and Evanescence topping the bill and sharing the main stage with Atreyu, Flyleaf, Trivium, and Hell Yeah, the new band comprising Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and members of Mudvayne and Nothingface.

The second stage, sponsored by RedOctane video game "Guitar Hero," will host five additional bands, including up-and-comers Five Finger Death Punch, Invitro and Twin Method. Between sets, a national "Guitar Hero II" competition will take place on stage, with competitors vying for an autographed Korn guitar, band access passes and a chance to challenge Korn frontman Jonathan Davis to a game after the show.

Invitro To Play Free Benefit Concert

Invitro, featuring ex-Snot/Soulfly guitarist Mikey Doling, have announced a free benefit concert at Minxx strip club in Las Vegas on April 4th, 2007 at 12 noon. The show will be hosted by comedian Ralphie May of the NBC's hit reality series, "Last Comic Standing". Proceeds raised during the performance will go towards the medical bills for three Minxx employees who were wounded in a February shooting that broke out at the club.

43-year-old Minxx security guard Tom Urbanski was left a paraplegic as a result of the multiple gunshot wounds he suffered during the shooting. Since then, Urbanski has endured a series of costly medical procedures and rehabilitation that will continue for the rest of his life.

"I've been good friends with Minxx owner Dwight Chornomud since we played college football together at San Diego State," says Gridiron Records Kyle Turley. "When I heard about the horrible tragedy that happened at Dwight's club I had to do everything I could to help these people out and get back on track. I also think this incident cast a shadow on NFL players and wanted people to know that most of us don't condone the reprehensible actions of a few select players on the evening
in question."

Invitro are currently finishing up a 57-date tour with Sevendust and Diecast. The band is set to release their debut album, When I Was A Planet, in summer of 2007 through Gridiron Records, the new label founded by Doling and Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Kyle Turley.

Snot To Reform Under The Name Invitro

Three out of five members of the legendary Santa Barbara metal/punk rock hybrid SNOT — guitarists Mikey Doling (ex-SOULFLY), Sonny Mayo (SEVENDUST) and bassist John Fahnestock (KCUF, AMEN) — reunited for the first time since the passing of SNOT frontman Lynn Strait. Mayo and Fahnestock joined Doling and his new band INVITRO for a cover of SNOT's "Stoopid" during their November 1, 2006 performance at Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California.

SNOT frontman Lynn Strait died in a car accident in 1998, putting an end to a career that generated considerable promise but only one studio album, the 1997 Geffen Records release "Get Some". Also killed was the band's mascot Dobbs, Strait's dog who adorned the cover of SNOT's debut album. The band had been recording their sophomore album and had completed 10 songs at the time of Strait's tragic passing.

INVITRO recently finished recording its debut album, which will be released in early 2007 through GridIron Records, a new label founded by Doling, Kyle Turley (offensive tackle for Kansas City Chiefs), Max Harris and former SNOT manager Nic Adler. Audio clips of the band's debut album can be heard at their MySpace page.
