Black Sabbath have released the video premiere of "God Is Dead?", the first track issued from their brand new studio album, "13," a week ahead of schedule.
The band originally announced that the clip would debut next Monday. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Rick Rubin, "13" is the group's first full studio record with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978's "Never Say Die."
Well, it’s been a pretty busy 24 hours for Nine Inch Nails. Late last night, guitarist Adrian Belew announced has quit ahead of the release of their new album and tour, saying that "no one is at fault" but "it just was not working."
Trent Reznor recently credited the King Crimson front man with inspiring him to revisit the band he'd put on hiatus in 2009. But Belew has tendered his resignation the day after NIN's first new track, Came Back Haunted, was released – and just weeks after bassist Eric Avery jumped ship as well.
The guitarist comments: "Before this goes too far let me say this: I greatly respect Trent and the music he makes. No one is at fault. We both agreed it just was not working.
"I'm sorry to disappoint anyone – that really hurts. But NIN will do an amazing show. “
I don't knwo if I believe this or not, but Lars Ulrich claims that Metallica took a bath at last year's inaguaral Orion Music + More Festival...
METALLICA's Orion Music + More festival debuted last June in Atlantic City, New Jersey and is set to return this coming weekend on Detroit, Michigan's Belle Isle.
Even though the two Atlantic City shows sold a total of 24,000 tickets, according to The Press Of Atlantic City, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told BusinessWeek.com that the band has yet to make money from the venture.
"I wish we broke even last year," Ulrich said. "I'd obviously like to get into a situation where it's not costing us, but that will probably be another couple of years away. You've got to be in it for the long haul."
