Overkill are among the bands playing Converse’s Represent music festival at the the famed 100 Club in London. The thrash-metal veterans will be performing Aug. 9 at the venue, which will host dozens of other acts during the fest’s two week run.
It’s hard to believe that throughout their 17-year career together, Staind have never released an official live disc, but all that changes this summer when ‘Live From Mohegan Sun’ makes its debut in several formats. The CD version will be available on July 10 followed by the DVD/Blu-ray out on Aug. 14.
Sebastian Bach seemed to be having the time of his life in Milan, Italy over the weekend (June 22) at the Gods of Metal Festival. In fact, he was enjoying his set so much that he lost his own microphone in the crowd – if only temporarily.
Shinedown will continue to celebrate the release of their new disc ‘Amaryllis’ throughout the summer as the headliner on the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival kicking off in August with Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach and more – but even leading up to that, they have a lot of creative surprises in store for fans.
Following the news last week of several new shows added, things seem to have gone south for Van Halen since then. Without much explanation, the legendary rock band just announced that they’ll be postponing all remaining tour dates after their June 26 show in New Orleans, La. With over 30 dates being postponed, the dates impacted start on July 7 in Uncasville, Conn. and span through a Sept. 25 gig in Milwaukee. This obviously means that the July 26 Van Andel Arena show is also canned for now.
While rock may be a male dominated world, when the women speak, they do so loudly. Two great examples of that are Amy Lee and her band Evanescence and Lzzy Hale with Halestorm. The two leading ladies have been crossing paths lately and have nothing but kind and supportive words for each other.
Sebastian Bach was a busy man this weekend (May 13) at Lazerfest in Boone, Iowa. In addition to his own set, complete with very special hometown guest Corey Taylor of Slipknot, he was also pulled onstage by Five Finger Death Punch.
Slash and his band were part of Rockfest yesterday (May 12) at Liberty Memorial Park in Kansas City, Mo. Before his set, he sat down to discuss his recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Guns N’ Roses, playing at festivals and the first time he picked up a guitar.

Adelitas Way are scratching and clawing their way up the rock charts with their latest single ‘Criticize.’ The song recently cracked the Top 20 of the active rock tally and the band is celebrating with a brand new lyric video for fans who want to sing along.
Buckcherry’s latest disc is due out in September and we now know that it will be called ‘Confessions.’ Here’s another confession: the band is also planning to release a short film along with the new disc that they hope will eventually make its way to small film festivals.
