More Bands Confirmed For Soundwave Festival 2012

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...

Kill Hannah Narrowly Escapes Bus Fire

Screamo/metalcore band Kill Hannah narrowly escaped a bus fire this week while touring Europe and driving somewhere near the Swiss Alps between their shows in Bologna, Italy and Paris, France. Here's the report from the band:

"We wake up to the smell of toxic smoke and the serious tone of our Tour Manager shouting three words you never want to hear: "Bus on Fire." Within seconds all band members (including support act My Passion), crew and guests were standing shirtless and shoeless on the side of the winding road as the entire 2-floor 45ft bus was fully engulfed in flames. Windows began bursting from the heat and there were several large explosions. It took Swiss firefighters less than 15 minutes to respond to the blaze, but by that time the bus and virtually all of the band's possessions were lost: including luggage, clothes, passports, wallets, laptops, shoes, phones, and countless irreplaceable sentimental personal items, including many gifts given to us by fans as we've crisscrossed the UK and Europe over the last month on tour.

"We stood, surrounded by scenic snowcapped mountains, watching the scene in disbelief, comforting one another as the blaze was battled. After two hours we were permitted to return to the blackened shell of the bus in a vain attempt to retrieve anything that may have survived. Finally, we were all taken by charter to the Swiss village of Airolo where I write you now from a tiny hotel.

"Fortunately, aside from smoke inhalation and shock, everyone is fine, as is our trailer of gear and merchandise. Half of us are without shoes, and although we all smell like noxious smoke and chemicals, we are all warm in our own band's hoodies and t-shirts. The hotel has a bar and an accordion, so we will try to keep spirits high while we await our replacement bus from Manchester, England.

"The official cause of the fire will remain unknown until after tomorrow's investigation, but it appears to have started underneath the bus as it was driving.

"We are very sorry to have to cancel both our Paris and Belgian dates, but we expect to be in Stoke On Trent in time for Thursday's show.

"We want to thank the KH fans, our friends, our crew, our management, The Hotel Des Alps, the staff at Restorante Cristallina, and all the Swiss Emergency personnel for helping us through this traumatic day."

Kill Hannah Sign With Roadrunner Records

The UK branch of Roadrunner Records has announced the signing of Chicago alternative rockers KILL HANNAH.

Described as the bridge between THE KILLERS, THE CURE, FALL OUT BOY and MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, KILL HANNAH's sound is said to be at once familiar and refreshingly original, showing undeniable growth by taking chances in a world where most art is being played safe.

Despite having no TV or radio play in the UK yet, the band have already headlined and sold out up to 1,000-capacity venues on their recent tours here. You might also have caught them last year at the Give It A Name festival, or more recently as main support for the sold-out UK tour with Finnish sensation HIM. More...

I also sent the first band I signed, Vains of Jenna, into the studio to record a new track for the record.”

The DVD component to this release contains almost an hour of never-before-seen Bam footage – a must-have for the ‘Jackass generation!’ Revealing what makes the DVD special, Bam adds “I’m finding some of my best, unused footage for the DVD.

More Bands Announced on "Viva La Bands, Vol 2"

BAM MARGERA PRESENTS…VIVA LA BANDS, VOL 2 is the latest in the skating/antic superstar’s unique musical vision shared with his fans. In addition to previously announced unreleased tracks from CLUTCH, CKY, and VAINS OF JENNA, exclusive additions to the track listing from IN FLAMES, CHILDREN OF BODOM, PLACEBO and THE BLOODHOUND GANG have just come in!

Jimmy Pop explains how THE BLOODHOUND GANG’s ‘romantic’ contribution to the compilation, "Screwing You On The Beach At Night" fits in (or doesn’t, in this case)… "I love so many of the bands on Viva La Bands 2. It's unfortunate that our contribution sticks out like a sore thumb. A big, gay, sore thumb." Placebo is also glad, albeit less comically, to be on the compilation, "Placebo is pleased that 'Soulmates' was hand-selected by Bam Margera to be a part of this project. He has exceedingly good taste," the band adds.

The CD/DVD combo will hit stores on September 4, 2007 and feature these unreleased tracks and much more. The compilation also brings together many of Bam’s other favorite artists such as GWAR, DIMMU BORGIR and THE SOUNDS, as well as newly acquired tracks from KILL HANNAH, VIKING SKULL, AND GNARKILL. The DVD component to this rocking release contains 30 minutes of never-before-seen Bam footage – a must-have for the ‘Jackass generation.’
