Airbourne have released a video for the song Rivalry, from their forthcoming CD, Breakin’ Outta Hell, out September 23 rd through Spinefarm Records. View the clip below.

It’s the second song to be released from the band’s fourth album, following the title track, which can be viewed here.

Frontman Joel O’Keeffe says, “The lyric probably came from us watching Football Factory or The Firm, one of those kind of films and I think at the time there was a big grand prix race on, lots of intense rivalries being reported in the media. Plus, as with other songs we’ve done, there’s an aspect here of rock n’roll taking a stand against those corporate forces that seek to restrict our freedoms, that try to shut down the little live venues, leaving bands with nowhere to really hone their craft.”

On the heels of announcing their Ultimate Collection, Black Sabbath will also release a four-disc super deluxe edition of their 1970 second album, Paranoid.

Jeb Wright of Classic Rock Revisited spoke with Triumph drummer/vocalist, Gil Moore. Portions of the interview appear below.

Jeb: Allied Forces is 35 years old this year. I was listening to it one day recently and I looked at the date and I was like… oh my God, where did the time go? Are you guys going to do anything special to celebrate or just let it slide by?

Gil: We might just let it slide by. You’re the first person that’s brought it up, so I should talk to Mike about it and say, “Hey, what are we going to do?”

Jeb: I was hoping you would tell me you were going to play together for the anniversary!

Gil: You never know, something like that might happen, I don’t mean like a tour or anything, but I just mean, maybe for some charitable cause or something, playing a track or two wouldn’t be a bad idea. I mean it’s easy for Rik because his chops are great. He actually plays guitar better now than he ever has in his whole life, he just keeps getting better. So, it would just be a case of Mike and me rehearsing and learning a couple of songs and stuff. I’m the one who’s really the hold-back because I’m so busy with Metalworks stuff. We’ll see, it might happen…

Jeb: How did you decide -and you’ve been asked this probably for 35 years since the album- how did you guys decide who was going to sing which song?

Gil: We just kind of fell into it naturally. Anything that was bluesy went to me, and anything that was more major key or high pitched went to Rik.

Occasionally we’d make mistakes. I’d sing a song that he probably should have sung or vice versa, but most of the time I think we got it right.

Some of Rik’s vocals were unbelievable, like the vocal in Fight the Good Fight for example, to me that was… I think if somebody says to me, “What was the best Rik Emmitt vocal of all time?” I’d be going, well there are a lot of them. Fight the Good Fight was one. Blinding Light Show was another.

He’s got some vocals that I don’t think the songs suited him. A lot of the songs that I did suited me. That’s the trouble for every vocalist…

With all tickets having sold out in less than a minute for Anthrax’s Saint Vitus Bar show tomorrow night, the New York thrash/metal titans announce that they will play a second show at the venue on Saturday, September 17th. Doors are at midnight and Anthrax will take the stage at 1AM (Sunday). Tickets are priced at $50 and go on sale tomorrow, Friday, at 12NOON ET. Log onto to make your purchase. As with tomorrow night’s concert, proceeds from Saturday’s show will go to benefit Gilda’s Club NYC.

Anthrax is confirmed for Saturday’s Revolution Rock Festival in Connecticut and will take the stage at 1:30PM to insure they get to Brooklyn in time for the Saint Vitus show. The band has already begun to kick around ideas for a different set list and other surprises for Saturday’s show.

“With tomorrow night’s show having sold out so quickly, we decided to do a second one to bring more awareness to Gilda’s Club NYC,” said Anthrax’s Scott Ian. “Two shows in one day – it’s going to be amazing, so come on down.”

Gilda’s Club NYC was founded in 1995 in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedienne and original cast member of “Saturday Night Live” who passed away in 1989 from cancer. GCNYC’s mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families.

Metallica have posted the following message about their forthcoming album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, on their official website:

“Guess what?!? It’s DONE! We have put the finishing touches on our next album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, and are looking forward to the next phase of unleashing it to the world, waking the monster that is Metallica and hitting the road. As we were in the 11th hour of wrapping it up it dawned on us that we have never shared with you in any sort of cohesive “official” manner the extensive covers we have worked on since Death Magnetic. While digging into the bonus options to compliment the 12-song album with additional material, we realized that none of our versions of these songs from some of our favorite and most respected artists have been readily available on our very own Blackened Recordings. So with that said, we’re here to tell you about some changes we’ve made to the deluxe versions of Hardwired… in place of the previously announced Riff Origins.

The 2016 version of Lords of Summer from the studio in its full glory as originally promised is still included, but now we’ve added the Ronnie Rising Medley, originally only available only on the Ronnie James Dio – This Is Your Life tribute album, along with the Iron Maiden cover of Remember Tomorrow rounded out by Deep Purple’s When A Blind Man Cries. And by the way all of these tracks have been recently re-mastered for optimum 2016 sound quality. Just for fun (and because there was room!) the special set we did at Rasputin’s in Berkeley, CA on Record Store Day 2016 to celebrate the reissues of Kill ‘Em All and Ride The Lightning is here all re-mixed and mastered.”

Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is scheduled to be released on November 18th. To read more about this release, and to watch a video for Hardwired, please click here.
