Taste of Chaos 2008 (Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, and Atreyu)

Comments Off on Taste of Chaos 2008 (Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, and Atreyu)

With the title track from their upcoming album, “Scream Aim Fire,” already blazing at Rock Radio, the Welsh metal-core band BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE announces that they will join forces with Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu on the Main Stage for “Taste of Chaos,” 2008. The tour kicks off Friday, February 29 in Denver, CO, and will play more than 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada through to late April. The UK’s Kerrang! magazine recently cited a Bullet show at London’s Brixton Academy as one of the “100 Greatest Gigs Ever,” so U.S. fans should be in for a string of sensational performances.

The “Taste of Chaos” dates will be the first North American tour for Bullet For My Valentine since early 2007 when they sold out their first headline tour this side of “the Pond.” Just prior to “Taste of Chaos,” B4MV will play three weeks-worth of headline dates in the UK and Europe, including a kick-off concert in their native Wales.

Bullet For My Valentine – Matthew “Matt” Tuck/vocals, Michael “Padge” Paget/Guitar, Michael “Moose” Thomas/drums, and Jason “Jay” James/Bass – saw their 2006 debut album, “The Poison” – dubbed “One of the finest debut albums in rock history” by a major UK daily – sail past the million sales mark, selling 350,000 in the U.S. alone.

“Scream Aim Fire” was produced by Colin Richardson (Machinehead, Funeral For A Friend) who also produced “The Poison,” and was recorded at Sonic Ranch near El Paso, TX earlier this year. The eleven new songs are, according to frontman Tuck, “really melodic heavy metal…catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals, with the music being very in-your-face and heavy…it’s a lot more uptempo [than ‘The Poison’], a lot more aggressive.” Still a week away from the official U.S. radio “add” date, the album’s title track has been the #1 Most Added track at CMJ’s Loud Rock chart, and #1 Most Added at FMQB’s Metal Detector chart.

With the Canadian dates to be announced in January, the confirmed itinerary for Bullet For My Valentine on the 2008 “Taste of Chaos” tour is as follows:

Last night Anthony & Anthony (A squared) rocked out to Evans|Blue, Framing Hanley, and No Resolve at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI. The night was opened by a local band, No Resolve, that showed so much maturity and potential for such a young group. The band has recorded a few tracks onto an EP, but Red Pill Music wasn’t able to get a copy of it at the concert, because they sold out last show! So in short, this is what we heard; No Resolve has some much involved in their music ranging from soothing melodies to explosive guitar riffs and vocals. Red Pill Music will update in the future with the progress of No Resolve. Take some Alice In Chains, Incubus, and Evans|Blue, stir it up and you have the sweet sound of No Resolve. Taste that!

Following No Resolve later in the evening was the Tennessee rockers, Framing Hanley. These guys definitely showed that their live show is just as powerful as their debut album “The Moment”.

Evans|Blue started playing around 11 p.m. and rocked a long, solid show. They played a mix of their two albums including all the singles. Also Evans|Blue played their epic movement, Painted. Meticulously pulled off, just amazing. Evans|Blue continued to play and play until nearly 1 a.m. and not a moment too soon! Overall, it was a solid rock show. Rock on! Here are some pictures:

Stay tuned….

In a recent post by Hawthorne Heights, a new tour is coming this fall. Here is the post:

Hey Lovers and Haters! We just wanted to drop you all a line, and officially announce our winter tour. Or WINTOUR… We, Hawthorne Heights, would like to welcome Escape The Fate, Amber Pacific, The AKA’s, and The Secret Handshake to the stage with us in November and December. If you are thinking…”That’s a weird line-up for a tour,” you are exactly right. We wanted a line-up that is not full of 5 bands that sound exactly the same. So at this tour, there is something for everyone…we hope.

We always like to help out other bands who we are friends with, or who we generally like to listen to…so that is how this line-up came together. We are planning alot of special things for this tour, so we would appreciate it if everyone could come and have fun, and keep music positive. Be on the lookout for more tour dates and details in the coming days. Thanks for your support of our band, the other bands, and music in general.

Love JT and Hawthorne Heights

Another Animal New Album Release and Tour Dates

Comments Off on Another Animal New Album Release and Tour Dates

Another Animal?s self titled debut album was released this past Tuesday. The album features the single ?Broken Again.? This is the first record for Another Animal, but not for the members of the band. Whit Crane from Ugly Kid Joe joins Tony Rombola, Lee Richards, Robbie Merrill and Shannon Larkin from Godsmack to become Another Animal. When Shannon and the guys from Godsmack needed a singer for their new band, he called on his old friend Whit Crane to step in. Shannon and Whit had previously played together on Ugly Kid Joe?s album Menace to Sobriety.

Another Animal?s name is a perfect description for what the new band has become. By incorporating elements of hard rock, metal, punk, and grunge, Another Animal is an eclectic tribute to the sounds the members grew up with. “It was so organic and fun to do,” says Rombola. “It was a great experience because there were no preconceptions. We just did what we felt like in order to create some really cool songs without worrying about what audience it was for.”

With the new record in stores today and the first show of their US tour kicking off tonight, Another Animal are playing the music they love and enjoying the ride. For more information on the tour or to check out the bands single, ?Broken Again,? go to the Another Animal Myspace page.
