Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
- Leading off, the battle for the rights to Entombed‘s band name appears to have been decided in favor of the non-“A.D.” contingent of the band — a.k.a. everyone other than possible-Tolkien-dwarf L-G Petrov. Hopefully that’ll be the end of this almost-as-stupid-as-the-two-Queensrÿches saga.
- Arch Enemy have announced their tenth album, Will to Power, will be out via Century Media in September. It’s the band’s second album with vocalist Alissa White-Gluz and first with guitarist Jeff Loomis. Naturally, there’ll be tour dates to coincide with that as well.
- If you’re one of those internet folks who actually didn’t mind Gojira‘s Magma, here’s one for you: the band’s announced some new headlining live dates around the U.S. and Canada this summer. If you also like Pallbearer and/or Oni, it’s even better news, as they’ll be opening!
- Speaking of headlining live dates, Dead Cross — that new project from Dave Lombardo, Mike Patton and others — have announced some of their own!
- Taake‘s still having visa troubles, guys. The band’s had to cancel two more shows from their planned North American tour — San Francisco and L.A. — and history with the U.S. visa office suggests those probably won’t be the last…
- And finally, just for laughs, here’s video footage from a set the guys in Azazel veeeerrrrry drunkenly played this past weekend:
I got nothing, folks. Anyway, that’ll do it for now — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!
Keep it heavy,
