Sevendust’s eleventh studio album, “Kill The Flaw”, will be released on October 2.
“Kill The Flaw” is available for digital pre-order at iTunes. Fans who order the album will receive an instant download of the first single, “Thank You”.
Frontman Lajon Witherspoon said, “We took some time off from the heavy side of SEVENDUST, and when it came time to record some new music, Clint, John, Vinnie, Morgan and I put everything we had in to what became ‘Kill The Flaw’.”
Fans will get to hear new stuff from the band this Fall because Sevendust will be the direct support on Godsmack’s tour.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist D.J. Ashba has announced his departure from the band so he can focus on Sixx:A.M.
He says in a statement: “Six years ago, I received a call that changed my life forever. The call was from a dear friend of mine (Katie McNeil-Diamond) who was working with GUNS N’ ROSES. It was an offer to audition for Axl Rose and earn a role in arguably the biggest rock band of my time. While I thought it was a complete long shot, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Much to my shock and surprise, I got the gig. And so began the most incredible journey I could have possibly imagined. I was blessed with the opportunity to not only work with one of the most talented bands, but also to share the stage with a living legend and a truly gifted human being, Axl Rose. The amount of confidence and trust that Axl placed in me was genuinely heartwarming and truly career-defining. So now it is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I’ve decided to close this chapter of my life. I feel its time to dedicate myself to my band SIXX: A.M., my adoring wife and family, and to the many new adventures that the future holds for me.”

Tickets go on sale for all Great American Nightmare dates on Friday, July 31.

Dave Grohl, Corey Taylor, Pat Smear, Nick Oliveri, Matt Skiba, Jello Biafra, Randy Blythe, holy crap. That’s the role call for an actually-super supergroup, the Teenage Time Killers. Their first album, “Greatest Hits Vol. 1″, is heavy as hell and you can stream it at The New York Times.
“Greatest Hits Vol. 1″ drops July 31st.
So this is awesome. Dave Grohl’s foot surgeon who fixed him up after he broke his leg in Sweden joined Foo Fighters on stage at Fenway Park. He performed a cover of “Seven Nation Army” with the band, and he kind of nailed it!
