The pre-order begins today at this location. An exclusive book release party that will include a signing and a reading will also be held at Book Soup in Los Angeles on Thursday, Augist 28 at 7pm. The following synopsis was also issued abou the book:

"Autumn Franklin is an awkward, biracial girl growing up in a suburb of Detroit. Already disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background, she becomes even more withdrawn when her young parents divorce. Ever changing but stubbornly tenacious, she survives the cards she's been dealt by playing them against the odds. Hurt her and she will not hesitate to 'kill you off,' making it easier to walk away.

"Transplanting herself from her factory-driven hometown to the alluring City of Angels, she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between two drastic career changes: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin." More...

Visceral Disgorge Brings Back Former Member

Guitarist Steve Rosenzweig from Visceral Disgorge passed away last month, and now the band has checked in with the following update about the status of the group:

"It has been over a month since the unfortunate passing of our guitarist Steve Rosenzweig. Many of you showed concern about the future of the band after his death.

"His passing did however bring past and present members closer together. With that being said, we would like to welcome back another original and one of the founding members who left the band a while back for some personal reasons. Eric V helped mold the VD sound and contributed greatly to the writing, pre-production and in the studio during the recording of 'Ingesting Putridity.'

"Of course we were set back with the passing of Steve, but Visceral Disgorge is trying hard and determined to get back on track. We are still currently working on brand NEW material for another album to be released hopefully sometime in 2015. 'Ingesting Putridity' is on schedule to be released on limited color/splatter vinyl this September.

"At this time we are not focusing on booking anything but will consider 'one off' out of town gigs or festivals by promoters request. Keep your eyes and ears open for upcoming news on new merch, vinyl release and availability, new label and how the sickening new material is coming along!" More...

Las Cruces Signs With Ripple Music

The Texan doom rockers in Las Cruces have signed to California’s Ripple Music for a worldwide onslaught of heavy rock.

The group has already started writing and making demos and will enter an undisclosed studio this summer to record a Ripple Music debut and follow-up to 2010's "Dusk."

Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Las Cruces has spent the past several years bludgeoning audiences with doom-driven, precision sound. Originated in 1994 by George Trevino, the band's influences range from Venom, Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, and Fates Warning to vintage Sabbath.

Over the years Las Cruces has gone through line-up changes and rumors of break-up. However, these things have not foiled the bands ideology.

"We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Ripple Music to unleash the fourth Las Cruces record upon the underground," comments George Trevino. "Many of our friends and contemporaries have passed through the ranks and we're thrilled to march onward into the streets with them at our side."

In addition to George Trevino on guitar, Las Cruces features Mando Tovar on lead guitar, Paul De Leon on drums and vocals, and Jimmy Bell on bass.

Machine Head will continue dominating North America with the announcement of a 21-show U.S. and Canadian trek in support of the band's debut studio album for Nuclear Blast Entertainment, due out this Fall.

The devastating lineup will also feature Children of Bodom, Epica, and Battlecross. The tour launches on October 4th in Denver, Colorado and includes five Canadian cities before closing out in Hollywood, California on November 1st.

Machine Head front man & guitarist Robb Flynn checks in about the touring line-up and the upcoming shows:

"Machine Head raised the bar with concert production for 2012 ‘s 'Locust' tour, and now we plan to raise the bar again with our biggest US show yet, and the strongest line-up out there for 2014, PERIOD!!

"This is a MUST SEE event for any heavy metal fan in America! I am stoked that we were able to join up with our friends in Children Of Bodom, one of the premier power metal bands of our time, and our friends in Battlecross, who we toured with on Mayhem last year, and are going to bring the old-school thrash vibe. Epica’s symphonic metal will add a touch of much needed class to the drunken shenanigans that will surely take place on this raucous tour. Come out and be a part of history ladies and gentlemen!"

Children Of Bodom's Alexi Laiho adds: “We’ve rolled with Machine Head quite a few times in the past. My best memories are kick azz shows, parties, camaraderie and vocal coaching from Robb Flynn way back in 2008, so I think we’ll have a good time tearing it up all over North America! Not a bad way to end the long and non stop tour cycle for 'Halo Of Blood!'"

“With this killer line-up, this tour is bound to be a great success,” states Epica vocalist Simone Simons. “We will bring Epica to a whole new level and I can't wait to play the new songs along with the old material overseas.”

Epica founding member Mark Jansen shares: “Machine Head and Children of Bodom are bands I listened to as teenager, so it's really amazing to be on this tour with Epica." More...

"The new album represents a real step forward for the band. I really think that we poured over the material much more maticulously in the making of this album and I think that shows through in the finished article.

"The new songs really focus on the more melodic, passionate and expansive end of our spectrum this time around, and we have also taken the opportunity to shine light into a few dark corners of our songwriting including some slower, doomier elements this time as well. We recorded the new album with Chris Fielding again, but this time at his newly established Skyhammer Studios and I think that's really given it a boost. More...
