unnamed-1

Nita Strauss (AKA; Hurricane Nita, The Hurricane) Is way more than a pretty face, she's a Bad Ass Guitar Speed Queen and a damn good songwriter! Nita Oozes musical talent and David Draiman is singing on her new one "Dead Inside". It's so good David wished it was a Disturbed song! (true story) 

Anyhoo, Nita is Alice Cooper's touring guitarist and you may have seen her in "The Iron Maiden's" and "Femme Fatale" in addition to her solo career. Nita is the first female Signature Artist for Ibanez Guitars too! 

"Dead Inside" is the debut single off Nita Strauss' new record (due Spring/2022) Look for the "Winter Wasteland Tour" (11/10 - 12/18)

David Draiman says about "Dead Inside" - "We live in an age of over-stimulation. We're barraged on a daily basis by sound bites of every kind. Driven into a media driven frenzy, we've become hopeless outrage addicts, dead to the true travesties and injustices of the world that are right in front of our eyes. Nothing shocks us anymore. After all, how can you be shocked, when you can no longer trust?" 

"Serendipity can be really cool. We've been friends for years. Nita sent me the track…I didn't have time to work on it right away…then in literally a couple of days, while killing time in Santa Monica, the whole thing just came together. Incredibly proud of how it turned out and honored to be a part of it." - David Draiman

"This is my first time releasing my own music with a vocalist, and I am so honored to take this step alongside a legend like David Draiman. David's voice and powerful lyrics took this song to a level I could never have imagined! And we are so excited to unleash this song on the world" - Nita Strauss 

Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa. Most fans will recognize Nita as Alice Cooper's touring guitarist, but she has also played with R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens. Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation in the music industry and endorsements including Ibanez Guitars, Marshall Amplification, DiMarzio pickups, Monster Energy and more. In January 2018, she was officially announced as the first ever female Ibanez signature artist with her own model, the Ibanez JIVA. Nita has been featured on the covers of many worldwide print magazines and on dozens of albums,trailers, and soundtracks, including Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal GearRising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games); and is the author of the Guitar World column "Like A Hurricane". She is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Nita has performed many times with WWE, including Wrestlemania and NXT Takeover. Her consistent touring schedule has shown her to play in front of over a million audience members per year consistently for the past several years.

New Volbeat Song with Album and Tour details

Volbeat---Servant-of-the-Mind-Album-Art

"Our 2nd single, 'Shotgun Blues,' from our upcoming December album, Servant of the Mind, brings some chunky guitars and a return to the heavier side of Volbeat. With a fall tour that starts Friday and a killer co-headlining tour with Ghost to kick off 2022, there is a lot of great stuff happening for Volbeat."

"'Shotgun Blues' explores how every time you move into a house you bring dead people with you. Weird stuff happens when I move into a [new] house… it's very otherworldly… I felt like a kid again when I picked up the guitar, and let's see what comes out of it. I couldn't stop myself. The material was shot out of my body."– Michael Poulsen

Bring Me The Horizon is returning with a brand new song called "DiE4u"

tldkfzn

 ...and also sharing the INTENSE official music video. The song was recorded remotely during the pandemic, and is part of the second phase of the "POST HUMAN" EP campaign. 

The band's Oli Sykes explained the song is "about toxic obsessions, vices and things you can't kick. I think a lot of people went through very similar struggles while in lockdown, coming face to face with yourself and seeing who you really are and what's important. The song is a triumphant and emotional one for me because it was a time of realization to kick the things that were no good, and to take the choice in bettering myself. It also connects to a deeper theme about us as a society, and how we need to look at the way we treat ourselves, each other as well as the world." 

Bring Me The Horizon will be heading out on their sold out U.K. arena tour later this month.

unnamed-1
Asking Alexandria have shared their new single "Alone Again" with an official lyric video. They announceed that they will be releasing their new 11 track album, "See What's On The Inside", on October 1st.

"'Alone Again' and the rest of this album is the result of us reconnecting and falling back in love with why we started this band in the first place. No frills or cheap tricks, just the five of us playing our instruments as hard and as loud as we can! At some point in our lives, we all feel lost and confused as to who we are and who we want to be, and I think this song will really unite all of us in that sense. We are so excited to share, not only this new song with you all, but our new album. We went back to our roots as musicians and really wanted to reignite that passion and love for rock and metal music. Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Aerosmith, AC/DC….all the greats that we fell in love with as kids have greatly influenced this new album and we couldn't be more excited!" - lead guitarist Ben Bruce

UPDATE: Halestorm - Back From The Dead (Official Video) throat punch \m/\m/

sduhfalukhfiajvasrvo
"Back From The Dead" IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE! Halestorm spent the last few months recording its new album for a tentative late 2021 release.

"Up from the dirt I rise. It'd be so much easier to just sink into the hole that I have dug for myself, the grave that this world, broken trust, guilt, toxic relationships, pressure, anxiety and depression have helped me create. But that's not who I am. Is it harder to pick myself up and out of the blackness that sometimes plagues my mind? Yes. But no one ever said being your best self is easy.

Self love is a full time job. And as always, music comes to the rescue. My words and messages in my songs that I've been so lucky to have unleashed for others empowerment… is also my empowerment. It is my life light, providing my nutrients from a muse on high, a fickle but gracious muse that enables me to balance my emotions, and manifest my destiny.

It reminds me how to love, and who looks back at me in this house of mirrors. A reflection sometimes bent, but never broken. Through music we heal, and rock forward, knowing that we are not alone on this journey. With horns raised, we march through the quicksand, and together we make it to the other side, hell cannot hold us down"
- I hear you, I see you, and I love you, Lzzy

Halestorm touring plans include:
9/12 Mansfield, OH – Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival at The Ohio State Reformatory

12/12 Cincinnati, OH – Heritage Bank Center (w/ Evanescence & Lilith Czar)
