California post hardcore/sludge eccentrics HORSENECK are kicking off a short West Coast tour today, i.e. 24th June. The band consists of current and past members of WILL HAVEN and CHELSEA WOLFE. The Mini-Van Hell Ride trek will commence in Los Angeles, California and run through July 1st in Reno, Nevada.
“HORSENECK is embarking on an eight-stop Heavy Trip world tour which is contained almost entirely in California,” issues the band of their latest west coast voyage. “Booze, blues, and dudes (and a chick) are gonna riff up California (and Nevada). This tour is going to be so loud, you can hear us from the next venue. Come see us at a stop near you, the mini-van might make it.”
The band recently issued two more tour trailers, you can also view the hilarious video for “Michael Caine” from their Heavy Trip offering, down below.
“This track is about the feeling you get after a hard party night. Like next level hard party night. When it doesn’t stop, and maybe you’ve made some horrible decisions, but you keep going and going and going. You kind of forget who you are at times. You wake up the next day and say I will never do that again…. but we all know you’re lying. We all do it again. The video was just a fun way to show the party animal in all of us.”, said the band when asked about the song.
Every band has the dream of performing for a sea of fans on a massive stage right? Not only could those dreams come true but your band could also be the opening act for legends in the rock and metal world like Kiss, Ozzy Osbourne (Featuring Zakk Wylde), Korn, Slayer, Megadeth, Godsmack, Rob Zombie and Stone Sour. I mean seriously can a dream gig get any sweeter than that? This is all before even mentioning the slew of non-headlining acts playing this years 2nd annual Chicago Open Air Festival in Bridgeview, Illinois. ReverbNation is giving one band the chance to live out their dreams for at least one night. Last year the first-ever Chicago Open Air Festival brought more than 75,000 fans to Toyota Park. This show for an up and coming band could really spark something great and give them the ability to perform for tens of thousands of potential fans. The talent buyers of Chicago Open Air will select one 1 ReverbNation band to perform at this year’s festival at Toyota Park. Someone has to play…might as well be you. Continue reading →

BLIND GUARDIAN recently announced that they are going to release a live album entitled, ‘Live Beyond The Spheres‘ after just two years of releasing their last studio album, ‘Beyond The Red Mirror’ in 2015. The live album will actually be a compilation of their best tracks into one show taken from 40 different concerts recorded during their European Tour in 2015, which surprisingly also happens to be the first BLIND GUARDIAN live album in almost 15 years. It promises to be an exhilarating indulgence in what could possibly turn out to be one of the best power metal live albums. The live album will contain 22 tracks, encompassing timeless hits like ‘The Bard’s Song (In The Forest)‘, ‘Valhalla‘ and ‘Mirror Mirror‘, to rather rarely performed songs like ‘And There Was Silence’. The record will be purchasable as a 3CD-digipak as well as a 4LP-box-set.
Hardcore punk or sludge metal legends THE MELVINS are adding one more feather to their long list of humongous catalogue. They are releasing a double album ‘A Walk With Love & Death‘ on July 7 via Ipecac Recordings, and with that going on THE MELVINS are streaming a new song, ‘What’s Wrong With You‘ off the same album.
The song features vocals from Steven McDonald (Redd Kross/OFF!), who is part of the band’s current recording and touring line-up, as well as That Dog‘s Anna Waronker.
“We love Steven! ‘What’s Wrong with You’ is a great addition to our long Melvins catalog,” proclaims Buzz Osborne. “There’s no other song on this record that sounds like it and that’s what makes it so cool!”, he further adds.
Slipknot is from Iowa, United States and they are the biggest Nu-Metal band from it’s genre, they are filled with hatred,anger and passion. The world started to be a better place since their first full self titled album ‘Slipknot’ that got released via Roadrunner Records on the 29th of June 1999. 2 years later Slipknot came back to reign hell again with my all time favorite album ‘Iowa’, this masterpiece is filled with abomination. In 2004 they released ‘Vol. 3 Subliminal Verses’ which features the band’s anthem song ”Pulse Of The Maggots”. ‘All Hope Is Gone’ got out in the year 2008 and touches more on the instrumental side of the band, don’t worry it is still filled with rage! Latest album ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ from 2014 is dedicated to their former bassist Paul Gray who died on the 24th of May 2010, for everyone that lost someone in their life this is the album to listen to. It is dark, heavy and really emotional.
For all the people that don’t know the band so well their fans are called ”Maggots” and all the band members have specific numbers, they also wear mask and with every album they change it. The mask shows us what is going on deep inside the member. This is their way of expressing themselves. So with that out of the way we can continue with the news!

Riverdogs are back! Despite a heap of support from fans and critics, the band’s 1990 debut album ‘Riverdogs’ received an underwhelmed reception from their record label, which eventually forced each member to pursue different interests.
