NEWSTED TO RELEASE ALBUM “HEAVY METAL MUSIC” AUGUST 6th, BAND ON GIGANTOUR JULY 5th

newstedband400Jason Newsted has announced an August 6th release date for Newsted’s forthcoming album, Heavy Metal Music.

Matching and exceeding the teaser EP Metal (which debuted at #1 on the iTunes metal chart), Newsted’s debut full-length album, Heavy Metal Music, is likewise short on pretense and long on crushing riffs. From the throwback Sabbathian strut of Ampossible, the breakneck gallop of Long Time Dead, or the full speed ahead charge of breakout single Above All, the 11-song album is sure to cement the band’s place as one of metal’s strongest outfits. Staind guitarist Mike Mushok joins an already impressive fold with Jason on bass and lead vocals, guitarist Jessie Farnsworth and drummer Jesus Mendez Jr.
Listen to an exclusive stream of the brand new track Heroic Dose at newstedheavymetal.com.

“There is a chance that Mustaine and I will bust out some old Metallica that he was a part of. It has been talked about, “ Jason said. “I’m willing to throw down Phantom Lord – actually, whatever he calls out, I’m gonna throw down.”

DRUMMER MIKE PORTNOY LEAVES ADRENALINE MOB

mikepornoy Drummer Mike Portnoy (Winery Dogs, Dream Theater, Adrenaline Mob) has released the following statement:

“It saddens me to announce that the four upcoming shows in Latin America this month supporting Halestorm will be my last with Adrenaline Mob.

Unfortunately, I have scheduling conflicts that prevent me from being able to fully commit to the band’s future activities at the moment.

As I cannot be in two places at the same time, I don’t want to hold them back and have to wait for my schedule to re-open up to resume activity.

I’m very proud of what we started together and the music we made over the past two years and I wish the guys all the best in the future.”

Adrenaline Mob was formed in early 2011 by singer Russell Allen (Symphony X), guitarist Mike Orlando and drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater). They released a covers EP entitled Covertá on March 12th, 2013.

AEROSMITH’S “ROCK FOR THE RISING SUN” TO BE RELEASED ON ON DVD, BLU-RAY, AND DIGITAL VIDEO ON JULY 23RD

j9h8_AerosmithRisingSunDVDcoverlr_1 On July 23rd, 2013, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Rock For The Rising Sun by Aerosmith. This is a simultaneous release on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats [Pre-book Order Date June 28th, MSRP $19.98 Blu-ray, $14.98 DVD].

This is the band’s first live video release in 9 years, since the release of You Gotta Move in 2004 and it offers a unique portrayal of life on the road with Aerosmith combined with superb live performances, as the band toured Japan. Rock For The Rising Sun features the classic tracks: Love In An Elevator, Livin’ On The Edge, Last Child, Walk This Way, Draw The Line, Sweet Emotion, Hangman Jury, and many more, with material drawn from shows throughout this tour. As bonuses, the DVD includes extra live tracks, Lick And A Promise recorded at the Hiroshima Green Garden Arena and “One Way Street” taken from the Tokyo Dome.

In March 2011, Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they’d always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest shows of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage, which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans’ love affair with Aerosmith and their music.

Aerosmith are truly one of the great rock acts of all time and this incredible concert film brings together tracks from across their storied career. A live band par excellence, Rock For The Rising Sun shows them rolling up their sleeves and doing what they do better than anyone else.

Rock For The Rising Sun track listing:

1) Draw The Line
2) Love In An Elevator
3) Livin’ On The Edge
4) Hangman Jury
5) No More No More
6) Mama Kin
7) Monkey On My Back
8) Toys In The Attic
9) Listen To The Thunder
10) Sweet Emotion
11) Boogie Man
12) Rats In The Cellar
13) Movin’ Out
14) Last Child
15) S.O.S. (Too Bad)
16) Walk This Way
17) Train Kept A Rollin’ (credits)

SCOTT WEILAND FILES A COUNTER SUIT AGAINST HIS FORMER STP BANDMATES

weiland Scott Weiland is filing a $7 million countersuit against his fellow co-founders of Stone Temple Pilots, claiming they do not have the legal right to remove him from the band and asking a judge to bar their use of the name going forward.

“How do you expel a man from the band that he started, named, sang lead on every song, wrote the lyrics, and was the face of for twenty years?” Weiland said, according to TMZ.

He wants a judge to dissolve the band partnership and is asking for at least $7 million in damages.

This legal action follows a lawsuit filed on May 24th from STP that accuses Weiland of using the band’s name to promote his solo career. It bluntly asks a judge to strip Weiland’s ability to play the band’s songs during a solo set.

The singer denied misrepresenting his live shows in a letter to fans.

“When I tour on my own, it’s never as Stone Temple Pilots. It’s as Scott Weiland,” he said. “The fans deserve to know what they’re getting.”

The remaining members of the group are carrying on with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington taking over as part-time frontman. On May 18th, the group performed a 40-minute surprise set at KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast where they debuted new song “Out of Time.”

Guitarist Dean DeLeo said at the time that “we know Linkin Park will always be [Bennington’s] priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together.”
