Misfits Pull Out Of Motorhead Tour

Just days after Aussie rockers Airbourne dropped off the forthcoming "Volcom Tour", The Misfits have announced that they too will not be taking part in the tour.

A statement from band leader Jerry Only reads:

"For the sake of our loyalty and dedication to all our fiends, the Misfits have chosen to withdraw from the lineup of Volcom’s 2008 tour. The Misfits have always held an incredibly high standard of performance and quality in everything we do. Our fans expect this and deserve it. I will not compromise their expectations for any amount of money, prestige or fame. I apologize for the inconvenience and will reschedule performances wherever possible throughout our upcoming tour this Oct.

Airbourne Pulls Out Of Motorhead Tour

Aussie rockers Airbourne has posted the following message online:

"After 200+ shows this year, Joel's suffering from strained vocal chords and is being forced under doctor's orders to cancel the current USA dates with MOTÖRHEAD. All that is needed is a couple of weeks rest and then the band will be back on the road in Japan this October, and then taking on a UK / Europe tour for the third time in ten months. The band is gutted that they can not play these shows with Motorhead & hope to see you all at a show soon."

Rock on & see you soon.
AIRBOURNE

Metallica Covers Iron Maiden For Kerrang Tribute

Metallica has revealed that they recorded a cover of Iron Maiden's "Remember Tomorrow," off the band's self-titled debut album. Here's the update from Metallica'a MySpace blog:

"We were honored to be asked to participate in Kerrang's exclusive 'Maiden Heaven' tribute album... one of those super cool Kerrang! CD's that you can only get when you buy the mag. In this case, the issue (1219) goes on sale in the UK on July 16 and for those of you somewhere else, you can pick it up online at http://www.kerrang.com.

"We picked 'Remember Tomorrow' from Iron Maiden's self titled first album... it was basically the blueprint for songs like 'Fade to Black' and 'Sanitarium' and when we were jamming our way thru most of our favorite early Maiden songs, this one stood out and also came together somewhat effortlessly... we had a blast recording it at HQ in the middle of all the insanity of the last two weeks of finishing the new album back in May. Some of our other favorite bands recorded their own versions of Maiden songs too... Machine Head, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Coheed And Cambria, Dream Theater to name a few. There are more details in the current issue of Kerrang! or on their site... or check out the "official" press release here.

The complete Maiden Heaven tracklisting is as follows: More...
