The first part of a three part mini-documentary series capturing Letlive’s secret show at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA has surfaced online. The clip begins with an introductory musing from frontman Jason Butler on Letlive’s “friends” and flows into a performance of “Renegade ’86”. You can view it below and future parts will become available soon.
Nile has announce the full touring schedule for their upcoming March/April North American tour. I had previously thought the tour was going to be in support of their new record, At the Gates of Sethu. Turns out I was wrong. It is in fact a special tour that commemorates their 20 years together. The band is even planning on playing TWO full sets with a brief intermission in between. Guitarist Karl Sanders has the full scoop:
King Dude has already given us music videos for “Holy Land” and “Jesus in the Courtyard”. But now he ventures into even weirder territory with his new video for “I’m Cold” from his stellar new record Burning Daylight. The video is a collage of forest and other outdoor imagery and various clips featuring an unknown, seemingly masochistic couple. It’s pretty weird but awesome. Check it out below!
If Johnny Cash and the like dabbled in the occult and collaborated with the likes of Death in June then you may end up with something that sounds like King Dude, if all goes well. T.J. Cowgill’s, AKA King Dude, signature brand of ominous, gothic tinged, growling folk is back in full effect on his new full length Burning Daylight. King Dude’s supernatural, bellowing baritone soars over thirty three minutes of what might possibly be his best work to date.
Turns out the song Stray From the Path have been playing live, “Landmines”, is in fact the song the band have been working on in the studio. As stated before, the track is very groove heavy and obviously Rage Against the Machine inspired. In all honesty it’s pretty damn catchy and fun to listen to. But I still prefer their more hardcore influenced style. Check it out below and pick up the single on iTunes.
The instrumental heavy metallers Stallone are currently streaming their new six song EP, American Baby, exclusively at Revolver. This basket of badass riffs is heavy, catchy and an all around good time. It’s one of those releases you cannot hate no matter how much you try. Check it out now and headbang like the dumbass you are.
