Green Day - 'American Idiot'

Green Day – ‘American Idiot’

American Idiot is Green Day’s seventh studio album. Originally released on September 21, 2004 by Reprise Records, the album was a beautiful snapshot of American culture post 9/11 as it tackled rage, love, politics, the media and more.  A week after its release the heralded album debuted at Number One on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and in 19 countries around the world.  It has sold over 15 million copies worldwide and produced five Platinum singles, including “American Idiot”, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “Holiday”, “Wake Me Up When September Ends”, and “Jesus of Suburbia”. “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” created radio history when it climbed to Number One at six radio formats simultaneously.  Green Day would go on to play stadiums and take home multiple MTV Video Music Awards, Kerrang and Billboard Awards, as well as an ASCAP Award, a Kids Choice Award and more.  In 2005, the album won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and the following year took home a Grammy Award for Record of the Year for “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”   It also spawned a wildly successful Tony Award-winning play that launched at the Berkley Repertory Theatre before spending a year at the St. James Theatre on Broadway and then toured the world.

All About Green Day
Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt. For much of their career, the band has been a trio with drummer Tré Cool. Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California. The band’s early releases were with the independent record label Lookout! Records. In 1994, its major label debut Dookie (released through Reprise Records) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the United States. Green Day was widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States.  Green Day’s follow up albums Insomniac (1995) and Nimrod (1997) each sold over two million albums and were certified Double Platinum, and Warning (2000) was certified Platinum.  2004 brought the band’s rock opera American Idiot which reignited the band’s popularity with a younger generation and sold over six million copies in the United States.  Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide. The group has won five Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, Record of the Year for “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, Best Rock Album for the second time for 21st Century Breakdown and Best Musical Show Album for American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording. In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway.  On April 18, 2015, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a part of the 2015 class in what was their first year of eligibility for induction. On October 16, 2015, Green Day released the documentary Heart Like A Hand Grenade, an unprecedented behind the scenes look at the writing and recording of their legendary album American Idiot.

Slayer Unleash 12th Studio Album And Unveil “Repentless” Video

Slayer Unleash 12th Studio Album And Unveil “Repentless” Video

Slayer-2013_lo

Today, September 11, 2015, Slayer’s long-awaited 12th studio album Repentless (Nuclear Blast), is released and available to fans.  Launching with glowing early reviews – “Metal Album of the Year” (Guitar World), “Slayer continues to reign” (Kerrang!), “as unrelenting as all of their 11 previous” (SPIN), “the sound of Slayer telling you that it still recognizes its essence” (New York Times), and “a potent release that is undeniably Slayer” (Loudwire), the band is showing they are, as the British daily The Guardian put it, “still the masters of this stuff.”

Slayer's 'Repentless'

Slayer’s ‘Repentless’

The first music video from Repentless, the title track, also makes its global premiere today at Rolling Stone ( http://rol.st/1K1Id21 )  The video was shot late last month at the Sybil Brand Institute in East Los Angeles and is a grizzly depiction of what the Kerry King-created word means: to feel no regret or remorse.  Slayer performed the song in the prison yard while a riot broke out, blood flowed in abundance, and inmates and prison guards were slaughtered.  Directed by BJ McDonnell and produced by Felissa Rose, the video features cameos by actors who have been part of some of the most iconic horror films ever made:  Danny Trejo (“Machete,” “From Dusk Till Dawn”), Tony Moran (“Halloween’s” Michael Myers, “American Poltergeist”), Derek Mears (“Predators,” “Friday the 13th”) Tyler Mane (“Halloween”) Jason Trost (“Hatchet III”),  Sean Whalen (“Men In Black,” “Halloween II”), and Vernon Wells (“Mad Max 2,” “Commando,” “Weird Science”).

This is McDonnell’s first stint directing a music video.  He directed the 2013 horror film “Hatchet III,” and his rich resume as a motion picture cameraman includes “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man” and “The Interview.”  For the “Repentless” video, McDonnell and Rose brought in stunt coordinator Nils Allen Stewart who is known for his work on films like “Planet of The Apes,” “Anger Management” and “Daredevil.”

Repentless was produced and mixed by Terry Date and recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.  The album is Slayer’s first release since 2009’s World Painted Blood, and features band members Tom Araya (vocals/bass), Kerry King (guitars), Paul Bostaph (drums), and Exodus/Slayer touring guitarist Gary Holt.

SLAYER Announces “Repentless Eagle Edition” For Forthcoming Album

SLAYER Announces “Repentless Eagle Edition” For Forthcoming Album

slayer-repentless-metal-eagle-2015

With the title and release date just announced for Slayer’s Repentless, due out September 11, 2015 (Nuclear Blast), today the thrash icons announce their heaviest release ever – literally – Repentless, Metal Eagle Edition.  Made of aluminum alloy, measuring 15″ X 17″ X 3″ and weighing in at a hefty seven pounds, the Metal Eagle Edition will house a deluxe digipak of the new Repentless CD plus exclusive bonus content to be detailed soon.  The limited (only 3000 copies worldwide) and numbered Metal Eagle Edition will be a direct-to-consumer item and available exclusively via the Nuclear Blast mail-order online stores.  Pre-orders are available now, so log onto http://nblast.de/SlayerRepentlessEagle for purchasing info.

The highly-anticipated Repentless is Slayer’s 11th studio album, the first since 2009’s critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated World Painted Blood and the first with producer Terry Date (Pantera, Slipknot, Soundgarden). The band – Tom Araya/bass, vocals, Kerry King/guitar, Paul Bostaph/drums, and Exodus/Slayer touring guitarist Gary Holt, who recorded lead guitar parts for about a half-dozen of the album’s new tracks – started recording Repentless in March 2014, and made the track “Implode” available as a free download in April of that year.  The band and Date continued to record between September 2014 and mid-January 2015 at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.  For the album, “Implode” was completely re-recorded from the ground up, and “When The Stillness Comes,” used as an instrumental track in a Scion commercial, got a revamped intro and all new vocals.

Repentless also includes “Piano Wire,” an unfinished song from the World Painted Blood sessions written by Hanneman.  About the track, Rolling Stone wrote that it “…begins with an eerie guitar line before evolving into a full-on-doom (and classic Slayer) riff onslaught…”  King put it this way:  “When I hear it, I think ‘Jeff.’  It sounds like a Jeff Hanneman song.”

The 12-track Repentless is, according to those who have heard it, a sonic assault of brutal, ominous, lightening-fast and heavy-as-hell music with lyrics that unmask what Slayer knows best – the terror, the corruption and the societal turmoil that dominates our world.

“The new album sounds like Slayer,” said Araya.  “In the past, our fans have always known what to expect, this time they don’t.  But we really like it, and I don’t think the fans are going to be disappointed.”

As is expected from Slayer, the band will support the release of Repentless with extensive touring across the globe, beginning this summer when the band headlines the Mayhem Festival.  That tour kicks off June 26 at Sleep Train Amphitheater in San Diego, CA.  The complete routing is below.

Garbage Share New Music Video for Record Store Day Release “The Chemicals” feat. Brian Aubert

Garbage Share New Music Video for Record Store Day Release “The Chemicals” feat. Brian Aubert

garbage-2015-1

In celebration of this year’s Record Store Day, Garbage has released a music video for “The Chemicals” featuring Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups. Mashable premiered the video yesterday alongside a Q+A with frontwoman Shirley Manson. Watch the video HERE.

Directed by Sophie Muller, the clip showcases the raw energy of a raucous punk club. Describing the inspiration for the video, Manson commented, “We’ve always been talking about the beauty of small punk clubs. We were sort of rueing with the loss of a lot of those clubs that Sophie and I grew up in – that sort of sweaty excitement and the sensuality that comes when you cram people in such a tiny space.”

Garbage will release the song on a two track fluorescent orange 10″ vinyl through their own Stunvolume label at select independent retailers this Saturday, April 18.

RECORD STORE DAY 2015: Metallica To Celebrate With Release Of ‘No Life ‘Til Leather’ Limited Edition Cassette

RECORD STORE DAY 2015: Metallica To Celebrate With Release Of ‘No Life ‘Til Leather’ Limited Edition Cassette

metallica-tape-2015-2

In celebration of Record Store Day, on April 18th, metal legends Metallica will release No Life ’til Leather as a limited edition cassette. The seven tracks were recorded in 1982 in Tustin, CA by the band’s original lineup of James Hetfield: lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Lars Ulrich: drums, Dave Mustaine: lead guitar, and Ron McGovney: bass. Straight from the archives, the original source material has been re-mastered to maximize the sound potential for 2015 without altering the original mixes. No Life ’til Leather will be available for purchase at your favorite local record store and on Metallica.Com. The collection has never been available commercially until now. See below for the complete tracklisting.

 A note from Metallica: 

This year we decided to celebrate Record Store Day with our friends at independent retail by taking a huge leap back in time to our humble beginnings with that little rectangle of plastic known as the “demo tape.”  In 1982 we recorded seven songs that became our initial calling card known as No Life ’til Leather and it led us to our first record deal . . . the rest, as you some of you may know, is history!  We hope you enjoy this little walk down memory lane with us and that you will continue to join us in supporting independent record stores around the world. 

Look for expanded versions coming on CD, vinyl and a collector’s set sometime this summer.

Tracklisting:

Hit The Lights

The Mechanix

Motorbreath

Seek & Destroy

Metal Militia

Jump In The Fire

Phantom Lord

Record July 6, 1982 at Chateau East Studio, Tustin, CA

metallica-tape-2015-1

About Metallica: Formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, Metallica have become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over. They have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991’s “Metallica” (commonly referred to as “The Black Album”), which is the best selling album in the history of Soundscan, scanning 16 million albums in the United States alone. Their latest studio album, Death Magnetic, was certified platinum just six weeks after it debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Album chart in October 2008. “Death Magnetic” charted at #1 in 32 countries and sold five million copies worldwide. Metallica have also garnered numerous awards and accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.  The band celebrated its 30th-Anniversary in 2011 with a week’s worth of fan club concerts at the Fillmore Theater in San Francisco, CA. In 2012, Metallica unveiled a brand new stage in Mexico City that featured iconic elements that spanned its 30-year career and is featured in the film Metallica Through the Never. They played eight shows to nearly 180,000 fans at the Sports Arena in Mexico City.  Picturehouse released Metallica Through the Never in North America on September 27, 2013. The music-driven, 3D motion picture film immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography.  In December 2013, Metallica performed a rare concert in Antarctica where all attendees listened to the performance through headphones to protect the environment.  With that show, the band made history by becoming the first act to ever play all seven continents (all within a year), earning themselves a spot in the 60th Anniversary Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.  Metallica performed “One” with Chinese Pianist and Grammy Ambassador Lang Lang on the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on January 26th and two days later Metallica Through the Never was released on DVD and Blu-Ray.  On November 24, 2014, Metallica released a ten-year anniversary 2-disc Blu-Ray of their long out of print, groundbreaking movie, METALLICA:  Some Kind of Monster.
