Linkin Park have been known to rock for a good cause, and on Tuesday (Nov. 8), the band was awarded for their efforts with a Global Leadership Award at the UN Foundation and UN Association of the USA Global Leadership Awards Dinner.
For anyone longing for vintage Creed, then we’ve got some good news. The band recently announced a six-date run of special shows where they’ll play back to back shows of their debut release ‘My Own Prison’ and their second album ‘Human Clay,’ respectively, in their entirety.
Staind released their latest album, a self-titled masterpiece, back in September of this year. The making of the album was an arduous and well documented process, but now that it’s out the band can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Sad news to report: GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot (aka Flattus Maximus) was found dead this morning by his bandmates as the group prepared to cross the Canadian border on their current tour. MetalSucks.net shared the following statement from GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus):
Soundgarden fans, rejoice! Chris Cornell recently told Billboard.com that the new Soundgarden album is “mostly done.” He went on to say that, “We just need to finish a couple of songs and mix it, so that will be happening probably over the holidays.”
Back in September we brought you news about the 2012 Gigantour featuring Megadeth teaming up with Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil, and now the dates for the epic tour have been announced. The bands, all hand-picked by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, offer up an eclectic mix of speed metal meets thrash meets rockabilly meets goth rock. That’s a whole lot of metal on one bill, and a lot of bang for your buck – just as Mustaine planned.
Ouch! Last night (Oct. 26) at a show in Luxembourg, Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack suffered an injury resulting in a broken nose. Details are sketchy, but Biersack took to Twitter to offer up photographic evidence.
This just in … Courtney Love will not open for Limp Bizkit. Love recently pulled out of plans for her band Hole to join an arsenal of rock giants like System of a Down, Slipknot, Machine Head and A Day to Remember in February and March 2012 for the upcoming Soundwave Festival dates in Australia. Apparently she was not happy with where her band was located on the bill, more specifically opening for Limp Bizkit.
