Well, to be a little more forthcoming about it, this is news I did miss. I’ve been busy with a lot of other stuff for a while, but it’s time to get back on track. Here’s some of what’s been going on with classic rock recently. Rush Tour and Studio Time in The Works How [...]

I’ve told Dave White on several occasions that I WANT HIS JOB! I would love to be paid for writing about one of my favorite topics. But the truth is, he does a great job and I would miss him if he ever left.
Here’s the latest news for Classic Rock in 2011 taken from Dave’s site at About.com :

Due in stores and online October 20th, the entire soundtrack features songs that will appear in the movie, highlighted by Death Cab for Cutie’s
Modern Rock living
Hey folks, been a looooong time since I posted here last, but hey, at least I have a good reason. I am now a full time college student at Potomac State College of WVU and majoring in (suprise suprise) Journalism.
Without further ado, lets get into some MODERN ROCK news!
First up….Chevelle. After a disappointing release of “This Type of Thinking…” Chevelle is recording a 4th studio album with a current release target date of February 2007. Several song titles rumored to be on the new CD include “Humanoid”, “Straight Jacket Fashion”, and “One Cell”.* Shocking news also accompanies, as it has been confirmed that Joe Loeffler, (pictured at left) bass guitarist and original founding member of Chevelle, was fired by his two brothers. As can be expected, Joe was not happy with his firing, and fired back at his brothers via a message board post shortly after he was fired. Joe has since been replaced at bass guitar by, conveniently, by a brother-in-law to the Loeffler brothers, Dean Bernardini.
LINKIN PARK! Wow, when was the last time we heard something from them? The only thing that has been heard till now was solo projects by Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington…until now! Linkin Park confirmed that they are working on a new album, due out next year. However, the news didn’t come without some rather disturbing news…according to Chester Bennington, the nu-metal sound of the previous two albums is “totally gone”. Now, I don’t know about you folks, but I liked the hard edgy sound from the previous two albums. Who knows what Linkin Park has up their sleeves, but be prepared for a new sound coming from Linkin Park in the near future.
Staind is preparing to release a “retrospective” CD next month, named “The Singles”. This release, according to frontman Aaron Lewis, will include all of Staind’s singles, plus bonus features, but perhaps best of all, a DVD with videos for all the tracks. I myself cannot wait for this release, and since my 19th birthday is in November, this will be yet another reason to anxiously await November this year. Lewis also is quoted as saying that the band will begin work on their 6th album shortly, although no release date was announced.
Trapt has been rumored to be working on their 3rd album, along with news that Seether is working on their 3rd album also. In addition, Five Bolt Main’s new album is being produced by Chris Henderson, guitarist for 3 Doors Down. It will be very interesting to see what comes out of that project.
Thats all I have for now, so take care, and I promise, the next update WILL occur alot sooner than the last one!
First off, Italian metalheads Lacuna Coil (lead singer Cristina Scabbia pictured…hot as hell as always) have recorded their new album, and will release it within the following month. The first single, ‘Spellbound’ is sort of a throwback to good ole’ time, as Lacuna Coil’s male singer splits voice time almost evenly with Scabbia. Lacuna Coil has retained their heavy sound from Karmacode, which is a relief of sorts, as most rock bands today change their music style to fit into the mainstream. The new album, titled “Shallow Life,” even opens with a heavy track featuring double-bass drum kicks, a first for Lacuna Coil. The entire album is being streamed on their Myspace site, but for a week only. The album sounds better than Karmacode, and will be a huge hit amongst Lacuna Coil’s core fanbase. The album is probably still too unfamiliar and extreme to make a huge impact on any mainstream charts.
As I have written before lamenting the fact that heavy metal band Motograter only had one CD, it seems we may be rewarded with a new album soon. Labeled as “The New Breed” on their Myspace site, Motograter has found a new lead singer, who screams and sings with the best Ivan Moody ever had to offer. For a short while, Motograter posted a clip of a new track named “Lividity,” and it sounded just as heavy and brutal as anything on Motograter’s debut album. Double-bass drum kicks and screaming for 37 seconds best sums up the sound bite from Lividity. Ahhh, sounds like my cup of tea!!!!!
In other news, Nickelback’s Dark Horse CD has gone on to surpass the 2X Platinum record sales mark, which I bet just sticks like a thorn right into the sides of all the music critics who constantly pan anything they release. FACE IT GUYS, Nickelback is by FAR one of the most popular music acts, and whatever insults and negativity you level at them only makes them more determined to make great music.
It seems like only yesterday that the band Creed was on top of the world when it came to rock music, then as soon as they got there, it all came crashing down. With 3 Creed members moving on to make slightly above mediocre music with Alter Bridge, and singer Scott Stapp recording a sub-par solo album, Creed fans have been stuck listening to aging but never forgettable tunes from the late 90′s and early 2000′s. Until now??? Well before you get your hopes up, all I can say is MAYBE. Creed has confirmed a 2009 reunion tour, even posting a video trailer on their official website. Now a tour is GREAT, but what about NEW music??? Well, everyone is hush-hush on that subject. Oh well, here’s to hoping a new Creed record will someday surface.
Canadian rockers Default’s new album has seen it’s projected release date of March 2009 come and go…with no album release. So what’s up with that? I seriously couldn’t tell you. Default had to find a new record label since TVT Records went down the tubes, and the best they could come up with was ‘The Orchard’, an online record label that ‘wants’ to get into tangible album releases. It’s a shame a band like Default can’t get a record label that takes them seriously. With Default’s official webpage displaying “NEW WEBSITE COMING SOON,” we can only wait and see.
Alt-Metal band Chevelle is in the studio recording their fifth album, and from the short studio recording sessions videos on their Myspace, it sounds promising. The music sounds like a combo between “Wonder What’s Next” and “Vena Sera.”
Linkin Park has announced that their next record will be a concept album. No word on what musical style they will pursue this time around. Hopefully they bring back a little of their nu-metal roots. LP singer Chester Bennington also is recording a solo album, with a band named “Dead By Sunrise.” The album supposedly drops this September.
