avenged sevenfold(1-1409159292)From VH1 Radio Networks: This week, Avenged Sevenfold reissued their classic album, Waking the Fallen, ten years after the set originally came out.  The rerelease, which is called Waking the Fallen: Resurrected, includes bonus material like the original first-cut edition of the “Unholy Confessions” video, which has just been posted online.  The clip gives a raw look at the band and is essentially just a performance piece, a far cry from the more impressive videos the group has recently released.  It’s shot in a dim room and shows the band rocking out, focusing mostly on singer M. Shadows and late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.  Check out the visual at the Hopeless Records YouTube page. The band has been together since forming in Huntington Beach, California in 1999. Have you picked up Waking the Fallen: Resurrected?

VH1 Radio Network:

Korn have released a live video for their new song, “Hater.”  The track is off the band’s recent release, The Paradigm Shift: World Tour Edition, and the clip features footage from concerts all over the world, but especially from shows in Moscow, Texas and Switzerland.  Check out the “Hater” video at the KornChannel YouTube page and, if you haven’t yet, pick up The Paradigm Shift: World Tour Edition, which, along with the band’s latest album, includes three new studio tracks and six live cuts.  There is a ton of live footage in the video.  In a statement, the band said, “In the past year we’ve done over 75 shows in 21 countries.  We wanted to share the experience with all the fans who couldn’t make it, so we took all of this footage we had from these shows and put it all together.  The great crowds of Korn fans everywhere is what makes it special for us.”  Do you prefer live videos or videos with storylines?

rhcp(1-1408389162)Three years have passed since the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their latest album,I’m With You, and the band has been hard at work on their next effort.  Guitarist Josh Klinghoffer told Noise11.com that they have “28 or 30 songs,” even though they haven’t yet hired a producer.  The rocker explained, “The Chili Peppers are working every day writing.  We have a more elaborate demo stage into the writing, at least more than the band has before.”  As for if longtime producer Rick Rubin will help the band out, Josh said it’s “sort of up in the air still.”  Stay up to date at RedHotChiliPeppers.com If Rick Rubin doesn’t join the project, it will be RHCP’s first album without him since 1989’sMother’s Milk When do you think the band will finish their next album?

From VH1 Radio Networks:

amy lee(1-1407871471)Evanescence has been on hiatus since 2012 after they toured behind their self-titled album, and according to Amy Lee, they will be staying inactive for now.  She told RollingStone.com that she doesn’t “have any plans to do anything with the band” for“the foreseeable future.  However, she added, “I don’t make predictions about the future, because I’m honestly open-minded, and I would never want to say I’m done with any of it, because it’s a huge part of me.”  Amy wants to do projects that show other sides of herself.  For now, she’s focusing on motherhood, having just given birth last month, and on the score she did for the film War Story.  That will be out as an album called Aftermath on August 25th.

  • FYI- On July 24th, Amy gave birth to a son named Jack Lion.

Duff McKagan(1-1407852937)It seems every time we hear about Velvet Revolver, the band is auditioning singers, but we asked bassist Duff McKagan if that really is the case and here’s what he told us.

(From VH1 AUDIO) “You know, that band was so good and really started with all the right intentions and we wrote a lot of material near the end of that band – we kind of got really free musically and so we’ve got all this material and it’s a really talented band.  I think, you know, that’s a band, when it’s the right time to happen again, it’ll happen.  I’m not aware that we’re auditioning anybody right now and I think I would be aware.” 

Even the band’s former singer, Scott Weiland, thinks the group is holding auditions and Weiland recently went so far to say that he’d consider going to “the cattle call.”  It turns out though, he probably wouldn’t be welcome. Here’s what Duff told us when we asked if there will ever be a time Scott would be able to rejoin the band.

(From VH1 AUDIO) “No, that played itself out.  That was a chapter in life, you know, not a defining moment, just a chapter and I wish that guy the best of luck and I hope he’s okay.” 

For now, Duff is gearing up to perform at the 10th annual Johnny Ramone Tribute in L-A on August 24th.  Learn more about the show at JohnnyRamone.com. Scott was fired from Velvet Revolver in 2008 and the band has been searching for a replacement since. Did you think Velvet Revolver has been auditioning lots of singers because of reports you’ve read?

knight ozzyThere’s an online campaign underway to get Ozzy Osbourne knighted.  The fan who started it feels the Prince of Darkness should be recognized for his contributions to music and the charity work he’s done.  Over 20-thousand people have already signed their names to a petition and when Ozzy found out, he said, “Getting knighted?  I can’t imagine anything better… And my wife would become a Lady, which would be pretty cool.  But I’m not gonna get upset if it doesn’t happen.”  Check out the petition at Causes.com.  Ozzy’s daughter, Kelly Osbourne, is one of the signers on the petition. Do you think Ozzy should be knighted?
