Godsmack Teams Up With US Military For Video Release

TOOL TEASES NEW MATERIAL WITH STUDIO PICS + VIDEO

It seems Tool’s follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days is moving along after Tool finally settled a multi-year law suit last month. Adam Jones posted pictures and videos to Instagram to prove that’s true.

The first picture shows 10,000 Days engineer Joe Barresi behind a mixing board. The second posting is a video showing Adam Jones playing a “strange” string of notes, possibly giving us a taste of what’s to come.

In an interview in March, Adam Jones said there is one track finished and 10 still in the works.

Motorhead’s Pulling Out of Brazilian Festival Saturday is Latest in Series of Health Related Cancelations

Motorhead called off its appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival in Brazil when frontman Lemmy Kilmister became ill just hours before they were to take the stage on Saturday.

Media reports said Lemmy was suffering from gastric distress and dehydration. He was to undergo tests at a local hospital. Saturday’s episode isn’t the first health issue for Lemmy, now 69. Motorhead, for instance, had to cancel a series of shows in early 2014; there were missed dates in 2013, as well.

‘He’s been up and down — he’s got a really bad diabetic problem and it changes on a daily basis,’ Motorhead manager Todd Singerman said early last year. ‘A lot of it is fighting the bad habits, the things he’s not supposed to do any more. He’s stopped smoking, but he probably sneaks Jack and Coke here and there — he’d be lying if he said he’d stopped.’

Two different groups rushed to fill in today at the Monsters of Rock festival. Guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee, both bandmates of Lemmy’s, were to take part in a loose jam at Sao Paulo’s Arena Anhembi with members of Sepultura and others. Judas Priest was also reportedly set to play an extra 30 minutes in their subsequent slot.

Ozzy Osbourne closed out the Saturday schedule of performers. The slate for Sunday (April 26) included Kiss, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steel Panther and others.
