ANTHRAX AND BLACK LABEL SOCIETY TO HIT THE ROAD THIS SUMMER ON CO-HEADLINE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR and Hatebreed Will Join The Lineup As Special Guest 

This summer, Anthrax and Black Label Society will bring some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to 24 North American cities. Both bands will play headline sets. Hatebreed, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Perseverance album, will Special Guest. Black Label Society and Anthrax have shared festival stages and one-off shows numerous times, but this marks the very first time these two bands will tour together. Ticket pre-sale details are below.* The public ticket on-sale starts this Friday at 10:00 AM local time. Log onto https://www.anthrax.com/tour or http://blacklabelsociety.com for all ticket purchasing information.

"Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We've had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it's always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 - the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we've got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it's going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can't wait to see you all on the road." -Anthrax's Scott Ian

The multi Gold and Platinum, six-time GRAMMY-nominated Anthrax spent a good portion of 2021 celebrating the band's landmark 40th birthday. The card-carrying Big Four members' anniversary was the subject of an 11-week series of video testimonials from artists like Chuck D., Dave Grohl, Dave Mustaine, Kerry King, Norman Reedus, Rob Zombie, Robert Trujillo, Slash, and others. Anthrax teamed up with Z-2 Comics for the "Among The Living" graphic novel that was inspired by their landmark 1987 album and released their high-end bourbon whiskey, "Anthrax XL." But, due to COVID, the one thing Anthrax couldn't do, was tour, tour, tour, so the band fully intends to extend the celebration with this North American trek. Fans can expect Anthrax - Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/rhythm guitar, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, and Jon Donais/guitar - to draw from all four decades – fan favorites and deep cuts – for their nightly setlist.

"ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME - I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 3O years & they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for - HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!" -Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde

Everything about Black Label Society begins with the riff from their debut studio album, Sonic Brew (1999), to their critically-acclaimed eleventh studio album, Doom Crew Inc. (2021). A dedicated disciple of Zeppelin, Sabbath, and Deep Purple, frontman Zakk Wylde looks to the massive guitar hooks in classics as guiding lights. Their latest album,Doom Crew Inc., finds larger-than-life guitarist Zakk trading solos and twin-guitar parts with guitarist Dario Lorina, backed by the rumble of longtime bassist John "J.D." DeServio and powerhouse drummer Jeff Fabb. The GRAMMY-winning frontman has been featured on the cover of Guitar World more than a dozen times in recognition of his work on multi-platinum albums with the iconic Ozzy Osbourne and two decades with Black Label Society, and their chart- topping albums and singles. The stomping, heavy bluesy, recklessly unhinged hard-rock-metal quartet are part invading horde and part traveling carnival, summoning caffeine-fueled cacophony on records and the stage.

Hatebreed remain one of the most relevant and impactful acts in the hard rock and metal scenes. The Connecticut band is celebrating over 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, pit-stirring anthems, and poignant lyrics across eight albums and consistently sold-out shows. The band, which has gone from playing basements and backyards to being a featured worldwide attraction on countless festivals and high-profile tours from OzzFest to Warped Tour to Download, recently released Weight of the False Self, via Nuclear Blast. Weight of the False Self and Hatebreed were described by Forbes as "more relevant than ever in the metal and hardcore communities." It was also praised as a "return to their hardcore roots" by Brooklyn Vegan. The album was deemed "one of their most aggressive to date" by Consequence and "pummeling" by Revolver, while Psychology Today called it "a blazing combination of extreme metal and hardcore punk." Hatebreed, nearing a quarter of a billion catalog streams, continue to be one of the most vital bands in the hard rock scene.

"Listen up! It's gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS & Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face & ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit." - Jamey Jasta

It's a Time to Heal as Foo Fighter's Have Cancelled All Upcoming Live Appearances Following Taylor Hawkins’ Passing

cxkdfrkotodsfgfg

I'm so glad they decided to do this. Still in shock and disbelief, I'm sure. Grief and tears need to happen in order to move forward and Honor Taylor. No apologies needed guys. Sending love, light & Strength to Taylor's Family and our beloved Foo Fighters.

"It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins. We're sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won't be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let's take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we've made together.

With Love,
Foo Fighters

In a statement issued by the band all of their upcoming tour dates have been cancelled following the shocking passing of their drummer/vocalist Taylor Hawkins on March 25th. The band had a series of dates planned for May, July and August, as well as an additional leg that was to have started in September.

Oliver Taylor Hawkins was only 50 at the time of his death. He passed away at a hotel in Bogotá, Colombia ahead of a show the band were due to play at that night. While an official cause of death hasn't been announced, officials in Colombia stated that 10 different substances were found in Hawkins' urine. The investigation into his cause of death continues.

Foo Fighters are up for three awards this Sunday night at the Grammys, but should they win, they won't be in the house to accept them. The band was originally scheduled to perform but will no longer appear at Sunday's ceremony. The Foo's are up for Best Rock Performance for "Making a Fire," Best Rock Song for "Waiting on a War" and Best Rock Album for Medicine at Midnight. A CBS official has said that Hawkins memory will be "honored in some way" at the Grammys, The 2022 Grammys take place Sunday April 3, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS

David Draiman says YES to Nita Strauss!

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. In 2021, Nita also became the official in-house guitarist for the LA Rams NFL team, playing every home game at SoFi Stadium.
