And a big happy birthday to our very own Dan Kaplan, who finally turned 16! Just kidding, he’s 68. All joking aside, Happy Birthday, Dan. I’m sure a Monday back at work has made it a great one. Okay, that covered, what else is going on?
- Let’s start with a new tour, because that’s easy. TesseracT is hitting the road this November with The Contortionist, Erra, and Skyharbor. Could be cool, I will probably pass on this one.
- Ghost is now streaming their brand new album, Meliora, in its entirety. The album isn’t set to drop until Friday, so if you feel like cheating, get in here.
- This will be a day that goes down in metal history: Lemmy has switched from Jack and Cokes to screwdrivers. Poor guy. I could never give up whiskey.
- Sad news for Black Flag and Misfits fans, as guitarist Dez Cadena has been diagnosed with throat cancer. A crowdfunding page has been started to assist with the expenses. I encourage you all to help out if you can.
- No chance I’m closing with anything other than this clip from Rammstein‘s upcoming Blue Ray/DVD Rammstein In Amerika…
That would be “Rammlied,” in case you couldn’t figure that out on your own. The DVD drops on September 25.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
