Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
- Leading off with some HOLYSHITAWESOME news: Gilead Media and 20 Buck Spin have announced that Migration Fest will be returning in 2018. That’s about all we know at the moment, but shit, that’s good enough for me. If you didn’t make it to the inaugural edition, you’d best course-correct next year.
- Ne Obliviscaris have begun recording the follow-up to 2014’s Citadel. The “this Sunday” they mention in the video caption was actually this past Sunday, as we’re a bit late posting — whoops! — but either way, good news from the Australians.
- After taking 2016 off, Glenn Danzig has announced the return of the Blackest of the Black Festival over Memorial Day Weekend 2017. The lineup includes the man himself, Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity and a whole host of other bands, as well as “roaming demons.” Okay, then.
- Weedeater and Primitive Man have announced a run of tour dates from mid-April through early May, including some with The Obsessed out on the West Coast. Good news if you like either of those bands, I guess. I don’t.
- So I’ll be straight with you: I skimmed over the bulk of this next story. Something about CKY and John Carpenter and being a trio and whatever. (It’s CKY, so I couldn’t give less of a shit.) BUT…the tidbit at the end about the band’s ex-frontman Deron Miller naming his new band after his old one’s best (only good?) song… LOOOOOOL.
- Philly’s This Is Hardcore festival announced the lineup for its 2017 edition, which will include bands like Young and in the Way, Code Orange and more. Also Madball, because how could this sort of festival not include Madball. I think it’d break hardcore laws.
- And finally, here’s a “metal bagpipe” (yeah, I dunno either) cover of the Power Rangers theme song, because reasons:
Somewhere, Chrigel Glanzmann from Eluveitie just went from six to midnight. Anyway, that’ll do it for now — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!
Keep it heavy,
