James Hetfield of Metallica posted a photo on Instagram of his new tattoo in honor of the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. It actually has, "a pinch of his cremation ashes that were so graciously given to me." 

 It's on his right middle finger and it's an ace of spades inside an iron cross. James said "without Lemmy, there would be NO Metallica."

NOTHING MORE Release New track/official video f/ Eric V of I PREVAIL. Album details include David Draiman

NOTHING MORE return with their fifth album, CARNAL, on June 28th and features 15 songs.

Nothing More have welcomed I Prevail vocalist Eric Vanlerberghe on their just released track "HOUSE ON SAND". 

Nothing More also recruited Disturbed vocalist David Draiman on "ANGEL SONG". 

Rapper Sinizter will also be appearing on "STUCK"

"'CARNAL' feels like a perfect encapsulation of what NOTHING MORE has always been. From progressive introspection to steady-state rock 'n roll, we felt like we've achieved the exact balance wanted for this next installment" - guitarist MARK VOLLELUNGA

"It's a beautiful blend of memorable guitar riffs, illustrious chord progressions and heart wrenching lyrical performances all to the beat of a drum that palpitates with syncopated obsession. There's truly something for everyone on this record." - bassist DANIEL OLIVER.

"Sometimes you lose sight of your purpose in life and wander off of the path you were on, years later you find yourself in a life that does not match the vision you once had for yourself. Trapped, you are left with a choice…betray your inner voice, or trust it; continue on and play it safe, or turn back and start again… I'm starting again." - frontman JONNY HAWKINS on "HOUSE ON SAND"

In regard to working with VANLERBERGHE, HAWKINS states: "I'm so honored and excited to have Eric screaming his heart out with me on this song!"

"Almost a year ago, the boys in NOTHING MORE sent me this demo and asked if I'd consider hopping on it. I checked it out and for the next few weeks, I had the chorus engrained in my brain. The song really resonated with me. I think this track, as well as the rest of their record, is NOTHING MORE'S best work and I'm honored to be a part of it." - Eric Vanlerberghe of I Prevail


NOTHING MORE will head out on a co-headlining tour across North America this spring with Wage War and special guests Veil of Maya and Sleep Theory (4/16 – 5/18) followed by a set of direct support shows with rock icons Godsmack (6/23-6/26).

pothumbweb

It's been seven months since Steven Tyler fractured his larynx, forcing Aerosmith to postpone their "Peace Out" farewell tour after just three shows. Finally, we have the rescheduled dates! The tour was originally scheduled to stop in Columbus at the Schottenstein Center on January 23rd of this year. 

The new date has been set for January 13th of 2025 with The Black Crows opening once again.

All previously purchased tickets will be honored and tickets for newly added shows and remaining tickets for the rescheduled shows will go on sale this Friday, April 12th.

Watch behind the scenes making of Godsmack's "TRUTH"

ssset24

"Today I've made a choice to share with all of you an emotional event that happened to me 3 years ago. Sometimes my dearest friends and family will ask me why I would want to expose such a personal story to the public, and normally I wouldn't. However, I would also be a hypocrite if what I preach all the time is how people should expose their SCARS, emotionally or physically, and wear them loudly and proudly on their sleeves to remind us of what we survived. Rather than carry that weight internally and sink into dark places, always wondering what we did wrong, what we could've done better, and never forgiving the other person or ourselves. 

If we are going to truly heal and live our best lives free of guilt, pain and suffering, then I feel we have to share our stories, expose our vulnerabilities and move past them with forgiveness. As I have with my ex, who chose to make this mistake and betray our love some time ago. It is also how I choose to create my art. Not only does it help heal me, but it also allows me to share my gift of music with all of you. Although it can be very painful to create under these circumstances, the reward has ALWAYS been much greater than the risk.

As you watch this Behind the Scenes of the making of our new single "TRUTH", I hope you see it more as a celebration of a rebirth, than a trauma endured. I truly hope it helps ALL OF YOU who may have suffered a betrayal of some kind find your peace too." ~ Sully Erna

Black Veil Brides "Bleeders Tour" is a call to Arms! Rock & Roll up your sleeve!

Bring yer' Blood...virtually...In support of the American Red Cross, Black Veil Brides are hosting a virtual blood drive during their U.S. Bleeders Tour.

Fans attending their concerts can present their proof of a blood donation and receive an exclusive merchandise package, consisting of a signed poster, pin, and patch. (I'll be bringing my blood donor card to Sonic Temple for that!)


"In the face of a severe blood shortage confronting the American Red Cross, we, Black Veil Brides, are calling upon you – our extended family. United by our passion for music and a shared spirit of altruism, we're initiating a virtual blood drive during our U.S. Bleeders Tour, inspired by our latest single, "Bleeders." This isn't just a song; it's a call to arms!" - BVB

BVB's noted that every pint of blood has the potential to save as many as three lives So this combined effort between the band and fans can have a profound impact.

The blood drive was inspired by their upcoming single "Bleeders" and their tour that kicks off April 25 in San Francisco, wraps May 25 in Los Angeles and stops in Columbus Friday 5/17 Columbus OH for a set at Sonic Temple.
