In the ever-changing world of the music industry, it’s a rarity for bands to reach a decade with the same representation, but Seether are still going strong with Wind-Up Records after hitting the 10-year mark. To help celebrate the occasion, Seether were surprised backstage by President/CEO Ed Vetri and their manager Jack Rovner with plaques that marked the accomplishments the band have reached over the past decade.
Are you ready for Axewound? After working out their scheduling issues, it looks as though the metal supergroup will finally get to release their debut album. ‘Vultures’ currently carries on Oct. 1 release in the U.K., with the disc dropping a day later in the U.S.
If you know anything about Motley Crue and Kiss, it’s that the two bands really love their pyro. So it was definitely a little scary when a transport truck carrying some of Motley Crue’s pyrotechnic equipment was involved in an accident en route to the band’s performance tonight (Sept. 5) in Clarkston, Mich.
It’s not been a good year for Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin. After starting the year with a cocaine possession charge, the vocalist was arrested again today (Sept. 4) after getting into an argument with a flight attendant that led to an emergency landing.
The Jay-Z-led ‘Made in America’ is ready to take place next week, but one prominent artist on the bill has bowed out at the last minute.

Deftones have put in the work, and now they’re going to have a little fun on top of it by recording a few cover songs.

Nonpoint are ready to rock it up once more with their latest disc, a self-titled effort, that’s coming on Oct. 9 via Razor & Tie. The group just revealed the artwork and track listing for their latest release, with ‘Left for You’ recently surfacing as the album’s lead single. In addition to ‘Left for You,’ the band also previewed the track ‘I Said It‘ this summer, offering it up to fans as a free download.
A lot of rockers may lean to the left, but there are still some who either fully support the right side of politics or at least are willing to play a major event like the Republican National Convention. On the rock side, the big “get” is 3 Doors Down, who will make their way to Tampa this week to perform as part of the ramp up to the announcement of the Republican ticket.
There’s no doubt the Foo Fighters rock, and it’s usually pretty hard when they do.

Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe is thrilled to be back onstage – so thrilled that he actually got in more stage time than what his band was allotted over the weekend. The vocalist took the opportunity to join Prong onstage during their set at Saturday’s Knotfest show in Somerset, Wis.
This time a decade ago, South Africa wasn’t exactly known for turning out hard rock bands. Now, a decade later, Seether have become one of the most successful and steadily consistent hard rock bands going.
