From June 20-23, such A-list rockers as former Iron Maiden vocalist Blaze Bayley, Disturbed bassist John Moyer, and Scorpions drummer James Kottak will be teaming up in a soon-to-be-legendary “supergroup” named The Foundry to play a run of shows in Texas and Oklahoma. Whether the group will come up with original material or will primarily stick to covers is unknown at this point, as well as whether or not the group will continue activity after their brief stint of shows. Maybe they will play some tunes from Iron Maiden’s ‘X Factor’ or ‘Virtual XI’, which were the bands only albums to feature Bayley. At least he’s getting back into playing music after his former job hawking hair-replacement products. It is also interesting to note that this is the second supergroup that bassist John Moyer is in at the moment, with the other one being Adrenaline Mob.
All joking aside though, the shows are for a good cause: to raise charity money for victims of the recent Oklahoma tornadoes, which claimed the lives of over 20 people and caused extensive property damage.
June 20 – Austin, TX – Crown Events Center
June 21 - Oklahoma City, OK – The Chameleon Room
June 22 – Austin, TX – Anderson Mill Tavern
June 23 – New Braunfels, TX – Happy Cow Bar & Grill
Your progressive metal dreams are about to come true.
Although an official announcement has yet to be made, It’s been announced that Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, The Contortionist, and The Safety Fire will all be touring together this fall. According to the tour poster that has surfaced, BTBAM will also be performing the entire Parallel, parts 1 and 2, in its entirety. Clocking in at almost an hour and fifteen minutes, it seems like the band’s EP and most recent album are all that they’ll be playing.
A full rundown of dates for the September/October trek, which kicks off on September 13 in Winston Salem, can be seen below. Read more »
Earlier this week, rumors that Godflesh would be embarking on a U.S. tour started to slip. Now it’s been confirmed that Justin Broadrick’s seminal metal/industrial band will indeed be playing a handful of dates this October.
In a posting on his Facebook page, Broadrick confirmed the news and noted that “these dates are final, no other dates will be added.” Support on the entire trek will come from Prurient, while Nails (as previously rumored) will be on half of the tour. Furthermore, the dates previously leaked are essentially the same ones that have been confirmed. Whether this means the reunited Godflesh are closer to releasing new music, though, remains to be seen.

If you’re having trouble reading the band logos in the tour flyer, we’re here to help. Death metal pioneers Dying Fetus have just announced a headlining US fall tour with support from Exhumed, Devourment, Waking the Cadaver, Rivers of Nihil, and Abiotic. If you are a fan of blast beats, you definitely don’t want to miss this. The tour kicks off October 4 and will conclude November 2. See below for the complete list of tour dates.
Rivers of Nihil guitarist Brody Uttely had this to say about playing alongside Dying Fetus, via Metal Blade:
“Dying Fetus played a huge role in shaping the early sound of Rivers of Nihil and they continue to influence us to this day, and we grew up listening to Exhumed and Devourment and we’re honored to be touring with them. We’re also excited to be touring with some of our younger peers and Metal Blade brothers in Abiotic. We’ll be playing all new material from our new album, which will be coming out later this year.”

Can it be? There have been a lot of rumors kicking around about Godflesh, Justin Broadrick’s seminal metal/industrial band, touring. And while we can’t find concrete confirmation yet, theprp is reporting some dates have slipped out for October. The band, which primarily consists of Broadrick and G.C. Green, had reformed for last year’s Maryland Deathfest, playing much of their most popular and influential album, 1989′s Streetcleaner. Nails will apparently be supporting, which just sweetens the deal.
Broadrick disbanded Godflesh in 2002. They reformed in 2010 to play some shows, and there’s talk of new music coming out from them. We’ll give you updated/confirmed tour dates as soon as we get them, but this is where they’ll allegedly be playing:
10/18 Philadelphia, PA – Theatre Of Living Arts
10/19 New York City, NY – Irving Plaza
10/20 Boston, MA – Royale
10/22 Chicago, IL – Metro
10/24 Seattle, WA – Neumos
10/25 Portland, OR – Hawthorne Theatre
10/26 Oakland, CA – Metro Opera House
10/27 Los Angeles, CA – Fonda Theatre
10/29 Austin, TX – Mohawk
“GWAR and Hatebreed together is really gonna fuck some people up” says space alien Oderus Urungus of the news that Scumdogs of the Universe GWAR are to be joining up with hardcore heroes Hatebreed on a mini-tour this September (dates listed below). The tour will also feature Iron Reagan, which is made up of members from Municipal Waste and Cannabis Corpse.
Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed is excited to be playing with GWAR:
“We’re extremely happy to finally hook up some GWAR/Hatebreed dates after years of trying to get our schedules to connect! We’ll have spent this entire summer rocking stages in Europe so it will be great to get back to the good ole USA, to get down & dirty in the clubs with our favorite mutants from Antarctica. These gigs are not to be missed!”
The satirical shock-rockers are also gearing up for their 4th annual GWAR-B-Q, which features bands such as Municipal Waste and Battlecross and will take place at a waterpark. Actually going in the water might not be the best idea during the festivities, but it still sounds like a hell of a time. GWAR will also be appearing at Chicago’s “Riot Fest” for the second year in a row.
Dates for the GWAR and Hatebreed tour:
9/11: Lexington, KY @ Buster’s Billiards & Backroom
9/12: Indianapolis, IN @ The Vogue
9/13: Chicago, IL @ Riot Fest*
9/14: Millvale, PA @ Mr. Smalls
9/15: Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom
10/26: Austin, TX @ Emo’s (Housecore Horror Film Fest)
While we’ll get into a lot more of this later today, Queens of the Stone Age have the #1 album in the country. …Like Clockwork sold 91,000 copies of their sixth album, giving the band their first album to top the charts. It’s even more impressive when you consider that their last album, 2007′s Era Vulgaris, only sold 52,000 copies, and this is their first album on an independent label (Matador) since their first. Their fourth album, Lullabies to Paralyze, had their highest-ever first week tally, selling 97,000 copies to debut at #5, but that was all the way back in 2005.
In other QOTSA news, the band have announced a headlining tour in support of the album. They’ll be sandwiching tour dates in between a handful of festival dates that include Lollapalooza, the Made In America Festival, and Austin City Limits, among others. This past weekend, the band played “Fairweather Friends,” the most guest-laden track from the new album, live for the first time at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. That can be seen above, via theprp. Check out the tour dates after the jump. Read more »
Another one bites the dust! With the reformation of Nine Inch Nails, Adrian Belew is the next one to be out of the band. Belew posted a lengthier explanation about his departure on his Facebook page, but it has since been taken down and replaced with a simpler, “It didn’t work.”
Here’s the original post:
“hey folks, before this goes too far let me say this: I greatly respect trent and the music he makes. no one is at fault. we both agreed it just was not working. I’m sorry to disappoint anyone. that really hurts. but NIN will do an amazing show and I am back where I belong: creating FLUX.”
This decision must have been swirling around everybody’s heads once NIN re-united with Robin Finck. And with their new album Hesitation Marks due out on September 3, it’ll be interesting to see how the live shows will shape up with the new/old lineup. The news also comes just as the single “Came Back Haunted” made its way online, and after announcing dates for a full U.S. tour to to take place at the end of September with Explosions In The Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor opening on select dates. Check out a complete rundown of NIN’s Tension 2013 tour dates below. Read more »
Earlier this week, Ghost B.C. announced a mini-tour of the U.S. to coincide with their appearance at Lollapalooza. And while it doesn’t appear that Papa Emeritus II and the ghouls will be doing more than a handful dates outside the festival this summer (for now, at least), they did nab one hell of an opener: Skeletonwitch.
That’s right, after they tour Canada and the West Coast, Skeletonwitch will be performing a few shows with Ghost B.C. this summer. This includes shows in Hartford, Brooklyn, Baltimore, and Buffalo. While Skeletonwitch is definitely more thrashy than Ghost, the two still make for one hell of a touring combo. Check out a rundown of Skeletonwitch’s Canadian/West Coast dates and shows with Ghost below.

It’s strange to think that less than a year ago Baroness was involved in a gnarly bus crash leaving fans wondering if they would ever have the chance to see them perform again. The future seemed even more bleak when two members left the band, but for John Baizley and Pete Adams, walking away from a band was never on their to do list.
Instead, they’ve opted to recruit a couple new members (bassist Nick Jost and drummer Sebastian Thomson), started their spring U.S. tour, announced fall U.S. Tour dates and will be releasing a Live EP featuring a small performance the band did on the Maida Vale BBC Radio 1 show, recorded in 2012. The release will come out digitally and as a limited edition 12″ with the b-side featuring artwork from Baizley himself.
The setlist and EP will feature all four tracks performed on the show: “Take My Bones Away,” “March to the Sea,” “Cocanium,” and “The Line Between.” Along with the announcement of the new release the band has announced the following European tour dates including the band’s first trip back to the UK since the bus crash last fall. Check out those dates after the jump. Read more »
