Although it wasn't expected until December, the organizers of Australia's Soundwave Festival have made their second band announcement. Joining the 60 bands already announced are Staind, Wednesday 13, Unearth, Cathedral, Shadows Fall, Heaven Shall Burn, Your Demise, Kittie, and 14 other (mostly non-metal) bands.
Hole has pulled out of the festival after frontwoman Courtney Love refused to play before Limp Bizkit. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah said on Twitter that he was "relieved we got the moody old cow off the bill. [There’s] no point talking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up & act like a rotten twat to other artists, fans, etc."
A third announcement in early December will add another five bands to the lineup, and Danzig is one of the confirmed possibilities. More...

Guitarist and founding member Robin Staps commented: "Obviously this totally fucking rules. I've been a big fan of Hevy Devy's varicolored rumblings for many years, and we're glad that this situation that we were facing after our initially planned US tour was blown off has turned from dire into bodacious now!"
Fans who have yet to see The Ocean live can catch a preview online now. The band has released a live video from a performance at this year's Summer Breeze festival in Germany. Watch the band performing "The Origin of God" below.

In November, I am playing all 4 records back to back, and this rehearsal is the first one finished... Deconstruction next. The four shows will be in London for DVD's. I'm using different people right now, some from the records, some not...it's a hell of a lot of work, but it's off to a great start!

The song is 'Radial Highway' from the upcoming 'Ghost 2.'"
