Metallica Has a Touring Washing Machine


Think your band has ‘made it’? Think again. Metallica has their own touring washing machine! If you’ve ever wondered why they look so damn good on stage, wonder no more. When their clothes are clean, they feel confident enough to play some of their lesser-known songs like “Dryer’s Eve” or “Until it Spins”.

Soundgarden Heading Into the Studio, New Album Slated for 2016

Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayill has revealed the band will start work on their seventh album in the coming weeks.

The follow-up to 2012 comeback King Animal is expected next year – although very little detail has been established.

Thayill tells the Sydney Morning Herald:

‘No studio has been chosen and no songs are written yet. We’ll spend a month or more working on it – it’s definitely going to happen.’

He adds that he ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if the band reunite with producer Adam Kasper, who worked on King Animal with them.

Discussing their approach to songwriting, Thayill says:

‘Soundgarden has always written its own rules. We aren’t a meta-rock band that write rock songs about rock. We do our own thing – and that’s what works for us.

‘We don’t write radio hits. You can’t dance to our songs. And that’s why we are Soundgarden.’

Soundgarden are taking part in this year’s Soundwave touring festival in Australia. Their last release was rarities collection Echo Of Miles in November.

Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott said the band will absolutely not play new music during their upcoming tour with Styx and Tesla.

Elliott doesn’t want poor quality versions put on YouTube.  He wants fans to hear the songs for the first time when they are completed and not a crappy version from an iPhone.

He also shot down any chance of the three bands performing together.

The 48 city trek begins June 23rd in Tampa, Florida and ends October 4th in Bismarck, North Dakota.


A Little More Noise: Stewart Copeland Jams with Neil Peart, Members of Tool, Vertical Horizon & SOUTH PARK [VIDEO]

Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland is known to host some epic jams at his Super Grove studio, but a recent session might come close to topping them all.

In a video posted Monday, Copeland is joined by Rush drummer Neil Peart, Tooldrummer Danny Carey, South Park co-creator Matt Stone and Vertical Horizonfrontman Matt Scannell, all working together on a jazzy track called “A Little More Noise.”

The clip kicks off with Pert asking his co-conspirators if they’d like to make “a little more noise” and then Pert and Carey launch into the rhythms, eventually filled in by Copeland on guitar, Scannell on bass, Stone on percussion and Pert’s words echoing in the background.

On the video’s YouTube page, Copeland explains that a few days later more musicians came by to fill in horns and eventually the piano came as an afterthought.

Copeland’s Super Grove jams have been going on since 2008, as Rolling Stonereports, when the Police reunion tour ended. He’s played with Ben Harper,Primus‘ Larry LaLonde and Les ClaypoolSystem of a Down‘s Serj TankianTaylor Hawkins of Foo FightersSnoop Dogg as “Snoop Lion” and many more in this time.
