With a ridiculously jam-packed day that featured 14 bands on three different stages spread out over 10 nonstop hours of music, the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival offers up one heck of a music equation resulting in only one thing – an overdose of rock.
Now in its third year, the 2012 class of Uproar Fest kicked off
Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor wears many hats, or masks as the case may be. He added author to his resume last summer when he released his first book ‘Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Goods.’ Taylor seems to have caught the writing bug and has now confirmed that he’s been working on a second book.
While metal sometimes gets a reputation for being being angry and unforgiving, Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach recently took to his personal Facebook page to write a lengthy entry titled ‘My Fight Against Hatred,’ encouraging fans to share his words with others.
Ill Nino’s last release was their 2010 LP ‘Dead New World,’ but there’s good news for fans of the band as they’ve announced the release date and title of their disc due out later this year. Their sixth album will be called ‘Epidemia’ and will be released on Oct. 22 on Victory Records.
Fans holding out hope that retired Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing might find himself missing the stage and return to the band should probably put that notion to bed. Downing, who gave up his career with Judas Priest to focus on his love for golf and developing a multi-million dollar sporting complex complete with luxury hotel and world class golf course, seems to be pretty happy with his current venture.
Losing a talent competition to a tap-dancing cowgirl might bring some rockers down, but for siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale, all it did was cement the idea that they were born to be performers. In a new interview with Beacon Audio, singer Lzzy Hale discusses the moment that helped shape the outcome of the rest of her life and she points to their very first live show as the official kick-off of Halestorm.
Earlier today (Aug. 24), Papa Roach broke the unfortunate news that they had to drop off the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival due to frontman Jacoby Shaddix needing surgery stemming from a node on his vocal cords. As Shaddix gears up for the surgery and the realization that he won’t be able to sing for the next few months he checked in with Rolling Stone magazine to discuss his current state of mind.
Do you remember what you were doing two decades ago back in November of 1992? That’s when Rage Against the Machine released their self-titled debut disc that kicked off their legendary career, which is still going strong.
If you didn’t spend your life savings purchasing the childhood home of Ronnie James Dio on eBay recently, there’s another auction up for grabs that might interest fans of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
While the the Foo Fighters days of playing sweaty, intimate club shows may be a thing of the past, there’s nothing like a great cause to bring them back to their roots. The band announced a special show at the Fillmore in Charlotte, N.C. on Sept. 5 to benefit Rock the Vote, helping to register young Americans to vote in the upcoming elections.
