Ever seen a torched Tour Bus? Here ya go, compliments of Halestorm!

hsbuburn
Sweet Jeebus! Halestorm's tour bus was gutted with fire and flames that shot 15-20 feet outta' the top! It happened in the overnite on Thursday. Glad everyone is ok! Luckily the band members were in their hotel rooms at the time and no one was injured. All I know is I hope they were able to save Lzzy's stilettos and bad ass show shoes along with the gear...and family pictures of course. Joe, Lzzy & Arejay took to social media to let everyone know what happened and that they were all ok.....I Spy Miller Lite cans!!

"Old Halestorm had a night for the books. We were all in our hotel rooms last night and we woke up to our bus burning down at 3AM. Fun fun. No one was hurt. The Worcester fire department got there and put the fire out. They were amazing. Our fearless security Steve pulled guitars and luggage out of the bay. We all lost some stuff, but it was just stuff. The investigator doesn't know what started it, but it began in the bunk hall. What matters is that no one was hurt." - Guitarist Joe Hottinger

"Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. Like Joe said in his post, we lost some stuff, but so grateful that it was only stuff and no one was sleeping on the bus last night. I'm still shook, and emotions are a bit high today. But looks like the universe is not done with us yet!" - Lzzy Hale

"Wanted to first and foremost let everyone know we are all safe, nobody was hurt, nothing of great value was destroyed but we had a bus fire last night while we were sleeping in the hotel. I woke up to my tour manager, Mike, calling me at 3am to make sure I wasn't sleeping on the bus, our head of security, Steve (pictured here), heroically ran into the burning bus with a fire extinguisher to make sure nobody was sleeping in their bunk. According to him, as he looked under the door, the bunk hall was an inferno and he saw 15-20 foot flames rising out of the top of the bus. We're all so grateful to the Worcester Fire Department @worcesterfd for their bravery, and incredibly thankful everyone is ok. To all my fellow touring people, take bus fire and all touring safety protocols seriously👍!! And of course thank all of you out there for your love and best wishes!! Come pandemic, snow storms and now BUS FIRES you can't stop us no matter what life will hurl at us! See you at the next show✊!!!" - Arejay Hale

RESCHEDULED: Halestorm & Evanescence Fall Tour Moved To 2022

Capture2

Evanescence and Halestorm had to postpone their Fall tour because it was "hit by Covid". The tour was originally scheduled to stop at the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati on December 12th but it has been rescheduled again.

The new date is Friday, January 14th. They posted on social media saying, "We have unfinished business! Can't wait to come back in January!"

Halestorm just finished working on their new album so maybe that'll give them some time to rehearse some new stuff!
If you're a ticket holder for the original date at The Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, your tickets are still good for the new date, January 14th.

You can still buy tickets through ticketmaster.

Iron Maiden’s ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ Video Game features Ghost’s Papa Emeritus IV

imgstpa2021t
Iron Maiden have been collaborating with other metal artists in their free-to-play mobile video game 'Legacy Of The Beast' and now Ghost is playing! Ghost's current front persona Papa Emeritus IV is now appearing in the game dubbed 'Mascarade Diabolique'. That event will end on November 12th at 7:00pm EDT. Past 'Legacy Of The Beast' collaborations include Amon Amarth and Lacuna Coil.

An official press release said of the collaboration:
"The game's Mascarade Diabolique event is an ode to both bands' lore taking its broad themes from the cover of Iron Maiden's 2003 album "Dance of Death" and the video for Ghost's 2018 song, 'Dance Macabre,'. In this new storyline, Eddie and Papa Emeritus IV are both invited to a mysterious party in Transylvania (taken from the intro to A Dance Macabre & also surely a nod to the first Maiden instrumental track of the same name on their debut album!) 
They soon discover that things are getting out of hand, even faster than usual, as a sinister force has mastered the power to mimic the un-bindable will of the sentient powers of free will and individuality, in an effort to bind them to its control. Together they must fight through the hordes of mind-controlled revelers to confront the corrupted mimic, Cardinal Immortus, an evil clone of Papa Emeritus."

"I'm happy to see that my creature is being led into [Maiden's] world. That is a cool thing, both very humbling and flattering." - Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge

New Volbeat Song with Album and Tour details (Official Video ADDED)

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
