Quickies: Steel Panther plays Kimmel, Alice in Chains playing NFC Championship, and GODDAMMIT PSYCHO CALIFORNIA

It’s Friday! Time to cap off probably the busiest week we’ve ever had here at Horns Up—with some Quickies! Here’s what we missed in the metal world today:

  • It’s times like these that I hate living on the East Coast: check out the lineup for this year’s Psycho California festival. Sleep. Earth. Pallbearer. Old Man Gloom. Wo Fat. Goddammit. (That last one isn’t a band, but wouldn’t it be cool if it was??)
  • Need a nice kick in the ass to start your weekend? Check out the new Morgoth track “Black Enemy.” Oh yeah, the guys also announced a new album, Ungod, which will drop in April.
  • Alice in Chains will be performing at the halftime show of Sunday’s NFC Championship game, which is really great news if you’re actually going to be at the game! (And really “who-gives-a-fuck-they-won’t-show-a-non-Super-Bowl-halftime-show-on-TV-anyway” news if you’re not!)
  • After an eternity’s worth of development under Paramount and MTV, the film adaptation of Mötley Crüe‘s autobiography, The Dirt, is switching studios and will now be a Focus Features joint. You know, as if it’ll ever actually come to fruition anyway…
  • And finally, here’s footage of Steel Panther‘s performance on last night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live:

Kinda lolarious how out-of-sync the audio is with the visuals in this YouTube upload. GOOD JOB, KIMMEL TEAM! Anyway, that’ll wrap things up for tonight. A happy long-weekend to you all!

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
