Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
- Leading off, good news from The Atlas Moth: in a new interview with Yr Album’s a Sucker, frontman Stavros Giannopoulos revealed that the band’s new album is 75% done. Oh, and it’ll be out on Prosthetic Records. So, that’s cool!
- The Melvins have announced a 12-week (!!!) run of tour dates through the U.S. and Canada, beginning just after the 4th of July. That’s a fuckload of Melvins.
- Need some more nomadic folk metal in your lives? Well, Tengger Cavalry may be able to help — they’ve just announced a summer tour with Felix Martin.
- Converge has begun recording the follow-up to 2012’s All We Love We Leave Behind. Let’s make sure we’re there for Ben Koller, guys.
- I don’t know where the time’s gone, but apparently it’s been seven years since Dimmu Borgir last graced us with an album. Well, the wait may be over soon, according to guitarist Silenoz.
- Rapper Tech N9ne weighed in on Phil Anselmo‘s infamous “white power” salute after posting a photo with the singer on his Facebook. Nice to know that when humanity is extinct, we’ll still have this saga, along with five cockroaches and Keith Richards, to try and repopulate the planet with.
- And finally, here’s a video of Kreator performing “Satan is Real” with Papa Emeritus of Ghost, because honestly, the only other video that came out today was something by Avenged Sevenfold and there’s no way in fuck we’re posting that here. Check it out:
That’ll do it for now — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!
Keep it heavy,
