The kings of comedy rock PSYCHOSTICK are kicking off their “The Veloci-Turkey-Saurus Rex Tour” presented by Zildjian in St. Louis, MO on November 2nd and wrapping it up in Pittsburgh, PA on December 9th with support from Arsonists Get All The Girls (on select dates), Kissing Candice and Raven Black. As the band hits the road to share new and familiar material, they have posted their latest video “Adulting”, which will be one of many new tracks planned on their forthcoming album set for release in 2018 to follow their 2014 break out “Revenge of The Vengeance”.

Guitarist Josh “The J” Key comments:

“Over the past couple of years, we’ve transitioned from the tour-tour-tour vagabond lifestyle to having homes and lives again. On the one hand, it’s nice to sleep in your own bed and to have a social group and girlfriends you see regularly. On the other hand, the reality of having to clean, dust, take out trash, taking care of things, mow lawns, etc left us crashing down to reality hard. Over a decade ago I uprooted my stable life as a web designer to go tour, and now I find myself recalling, “Oh YEAH! I remember this stable life stuff! And it’s BULLSHIT!” So this song is dedicated to all our fans that had to plan around their responsibilities to make it to the show.”

Watch “Adulting” at the following link:

In addition to the tour, the band like to remind fans that No-Shave November is getting near and to be aware by embracing their hair, which many cancer patients lose and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. They ask fans to share their video “Obey The Beard” with the hashtags #obeythebeard and #noshaveovember and to please donate to https://no-shave.org/.

About:

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released four full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014)—and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic) their most recent offering, the crowd-funded ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance‘ includes the beard anthem ‘Obey the Beard’ and popular ‘Dogs Like Socks’, ‘Quack Kills’, ‘So. Heavy.’, ‘Blue Screen’, and a tribute to the 21st century’s most beloved action super hero, ‘Bruce Campbell’. Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!

 

Tony Lucca and Derik Hultquist team up to hit the road together this fall// 9/28 @ClubCafé

Nashville performers Tony Lucca and Derik Hultquist are planning a 13-date tour together this fall, including stops in the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest. (See below for full tour schedule.) The tour kicks off in Decatur, GA on September 19th and wraps in Nashville on October 7th. Tickets for these shows are on-sale now
 
Says Lucca about the planned outing: “I first saw Derik on YouTube, actually. Needless to say, I was quite impressed. We met for coffee to talk about touring and things just seemed to fall into place. Personally, I like touring with someone whose music I’m not entirely familiar with as it really is the best way to get familiar with it. I’m really looking forward to doing just that.”  
 
Says Hultquist of the tour pairing: “I can’t say enough about how excited I am to hit the road with Tony this fall. He has a stellar voice and I feel lucky to be a part of this tour. I know we’ll get a chance to share the stage a few times – I only hope I can keep up.”

About Tony Lucca:  Nashville-based singer-songwriter Tony Lucca spent last year focusing on his catalog, and he hit the road for an extensive cross-country run with Alex Dezen (of The Damnwells) and Christian Lopez, as well as an outing to the West Coast and Texas with Tyrone Wells. Lucca also celebrated the 10th anniversary of his album, Canyon Songs, with a very special show at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville. At the show, he performed the album in its entirety track-for-track, as well as a second set of Lucca classics from over the years. Joining him onstage at this very special event were “American Idol” winner and recent tour mate David Cook, Lady Antebellum guitarist Jason “Slim” Gambill, Nick Bearden of Jamestown Revival, Tim Jones of Truth and Salvage Co., and tour mate Christian Lopez. Also in 2016, Lucca released two EPs of material from a previously recorded session at the legendary Sun Studio (in Memphis) and another session he’d done in Muscle Shoals, AL in 2006.

Prior to hitting the road with Hultquist this fall, Lucca has confirmed a residency in Nashville this summer with a series of four free shows at The Country (110 28th Avenue North, Nashville); one already took place on June 28th, and three more shows will follow on July 27th (6 p.m.), August 23rd (8 p.m.), and September 6th (8 p.m.). Billed as “Tony Lucca and Friends,” the residency is an opportunity for Lucca to work on some new material for a forthcoming album in a live setting. Confirmed special guests for these shows include Dustin Christensen, Ernie Halter, Paul Pfau, Gabe Dixon, Barrett Baber, and many more.

About Derik Hultquist:  On his new album, Southern Iron, produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Aubrie Sellers, Lee Ann Womack) and Eric Masse (Mikky Ekko, Robert Ellis, Andrew Combs), Derik Hultquist offers rich portraits of reflection, anticipation, and stillness via lush rock-and-roll. This is his first length effort on Carnival Recording Company/30 Tigers, the follow-up to three EPs, Whether ReportLeaning on the Rain, and Mockingbird’s Mouth. This recent effort earned him widespread attention and opening slots for complementary heavy hitters including Sturgill Simpson, The Lone Bellow, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Joan Osborne, Jackie Greene, Bob Schneider, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Sean Hayes, Sean McConnell, Ben Sollee, as well as his own headlining tour.

Mark Lanegan Band Announce “Still Life With Roses” Remix EP Out September 29th on Heavenly Recordings

Mark Lanegan Band Announce Still Life With Roses Remix EP, Out September 29th Via Heavenly Recordings
On US Tour in August
US Tour Dates
Following career-best reviews for his tenth album Gargoyle, and a sold–out UK tour in late June, MARK LANEGAN BAND today announce the release of Still Life With Roses, a 6 track EP of remixes from the LP by various producers whose work he admires. The EP, released 29th September via Heavenly Recordings, will be available as 12” vinyl and download and comprises a brilliant array of remixes by the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Adrian Sherwood and Pye Corner Audio. The Adrian Sherwood remix of Nocturne is available an instant grat and streaming HERE, the track listing is further down the announcement:

Press acclaim for Gargoyle:

“Mark Lanegan makes blues for our time, chopping up sonic tropes, stretching them over handcarved laments, wrenching them from his throat and bleeding badly all over them.” -PASTE

“It features, as always, Lanegan’s smoky, whiskey-soaked baritone singing voice (if you’re unfamiliar, imagining a more soulful Leonard Cohen puts you in the ballpark), and it continues his ongoing explorations of synth music” -Dangerous Minds

“[It] is stunning not only for the music’s scintillating sheen, but also for Lanegan’s excellent performance. His gruff baritone has always been reminiscent of Leonard Cohen, but here he recalls the late great’s iridescent lyrics with a moribund romanticism.” – Stereogum

“The one constant has been Lanegan’s moody, melancholic soul-shaker of a voice.” –The A.V. Club

“Gargoyle is as confident and assured as anything Lanegan has released. It stands up alongside his best work and pushes his method in a few new directions, without trying to break from the paradigm” -Pop Matters

“Gargoyle has an early 80s UK electronic rock feel, with Lanegan’s rough vocal rasp sawing through musical timbres reminiscent of what was being played out at Manchester’s Factory.” – The WIRE

Still Life With Roses tracklist:
1. Nocturne (Adrian Sherwood remix)
2. Blue Blue Sea (Not Waving Remix)
3. Old Swan (Pye Corner Audio remix)
4. Beehive (Andrew Weatherall remix)
5. Beehive (Andrew Weatherall dub)

6. Death’s Head Tattoo (Falling Percussion Dub)

GOJIRA ANNOUNCE U.S. HEADLINE DATES WITH KYNG, DEAFHEAVEN & CODE ORANGE/@StageAE Pittsburgh 5/17

“French prog-metal giants tap grief to make a game-changing album.”

Rolling Stone

“…if ever there was a moment that signaled Gojira’s status as leaders in the continuing evolution of the genre, it’s now.”

SPIN

“The Duplantiers had to make this album for themselves. We are the fortunate witnesses.”

Consequence of Sound

Magma pulls off the all-too-rare trifecta of being heavy, complex, and catchy, while most of today’s best metal bands are happy to pull off only two of those three things (if that).”

Stereogum

“With its sixth LP, Gojira defends its status as one of metal’s most elite bands.”

NORWAY’S ALT-POP SONGSTRESS DAGNY RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ULTRAVIOLET EP TODAY

“Superior pop-rock in the vein of Taylor Swift from a Norwegian singer who has “star in waiting” written all over her” – The Guardian

Listen to “FIGHT SLEEP” HERE

Pittsburgh Thunderstorms 1 Slipknot 0: Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, and of Mice and Men show rained out

Saturday, July 30, 2016, started off with questionably ominous tones, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, and Of Mice and Men were in town and the weather looked dreadful.  As the afternoon rolled on it looked like Pittsburgh would possibly get passed over by the storms and all would be well.  As Of Mice and Men put on their fantastic high energy set there were some very dark looking clouds passing by, but all looked like it would be a great night for a packed First Niagara crowd.  Marilyn Manson began to absolutely destroy, putting on an amazing stage show, and pouring out a killer performance with “Angel With The scabbed Wings”.  A bit of rain began to fall and quickly became a furious downpour.  Manson was able to get in five songs (Angel With the Scabbed WingsDisposable TeensNo ReflectionmOBSCENEKilling Strangers), but the fourth and fifth were plagued by short power outages and then a full outage.  Fans waited in the rain and after an hour gave up on seeing a full Manson set, even though his equipment and stage display was still up.  By nine PM all hope was starting to be lost and the word from backstage was that Slipknot figured the power might not come back on for a long time, considering the outlying location (Burgettstown, PA).  Sometime around 9:15 there was an announcement that for everyone’s safety the location had to be evacuated.  Corey Taylor has since tweeted his apologies and a hope to reschedule.

OBLIVION MYTH GUITARIST ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER

(from Loudwire.com- Graham ‘Gruhamed’ Hartmann) Guitar player, Chris Selby, of Oblivion Myth has been arrested for attempted murder in the first degree. According to reports filed by a Tennessee police officer, Selby was allegedly arguing with a woman earlier this week while standing on a third-floor balcony. As the argument escalated, Selby reportedly grabbed the female, identified as Kelia Ramos, by the waist and began to push her over the 45-foot-high balcony railing.

According to WSMV.com, police received a call on Jan. 1 about “a disorderly person” at the Tulip Grove Apartment Complex in Hermitage, Tenn. At approximately 4:20 PM, police were dispatched to the scene where authorities allegedly witnessed the 27-year-old Selby begin to push Ramos off the third floor balcony, at one point leaving the female hanging off the railing and yelling, “No, no pull me in.” The officer called to the scene pulled out his gun on Selby, demanding that he pull Ramos back onto the balcony, which he did. The Oblivion Myth guitarist was arrested and placed on a $100,000 bond.

The day after Chris Selby’s shocking arrest, Oblivion Myth vocalist Ray LeGrand posted a statement on the band’s Facebook page:

PUBLIC STATEMENT: It is with absolute shock and disbelief that I find myself writing this statement. About 30 minutes ago my phone started ringing and numerous text messages came to me asking for comment on longtime Oblivion Myth guitarist Chris Selby. This was the first myself or any other member of the band were made aware of the situation. At this time, all we know is that Chris has been arrested on attempted murder in the first degree for “dangling a woman off a third story balcony” at Tulip Grove Apartments in Hermitage, TN.

My first concern is for this yet to be identified woman and the second is for our friend and band-mate, Chris Selby. Obviously this situation has implications for the band as well and we will deal with them in time. For now, I would ask that you honor our privacy as we are absolutely distraught over this information. We will likey post an update as we learn more, but honestly, our information is the same as everyone elses right now. Thank God that this situation did not end any worse than it already is. Please pray for all those involved. ~ Ray LeGrand
