Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) has premiered the 147th episode of his podcast, “The Jasta Show.” This time it features an interview with Andy Marsh (Thy Art is Murder).
Yesterday, Tony Harnell (ex-TNT) revealed that he had quit Skid Row. The band has now issued a statement about the situation, which you can read below.
“To the Skid Row faithful,
As you may know, Tony Harnell quit the band yesterday. We found out about his decision the same way all of you did, via his post on social media. He had posted that he was no longer in the band before informing the band personally.
The last we spoke with Tony was on December 17. He was in the hospital being treated for ‘bronchitis with asthmatic symptoms.’ We were all very concerned and offered any assistance we could to help him get healthy. Due to his condition, we were forced to cancel our show in Chicago on December 19. The next time we heard anything was his post yesterday.
That being said, we are all moving forward and wish Tony the best in his future endeavors.
Lastly, amidst all of the rumors and speculation, there has been no talk of a reunion [with former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach] nor are we opening for Guns N’ Roses.
That’s it for now. We’ll keep you updated as best we can.
“Thanks for your support and understanding. See you in 2016!”
Mötley Crüe will play their final two shows tonight (December 30), and tomorrow (December 31) in Los Angeles, CA, and have decided to film a new DVD for the fans that can’t make it. You can read more about that in the below press release.
LOS ANGELES, CA December 30, 2015—Iconic, veteran rockers MÖTLEY CRÜE will play their final two shows of their thirty-four-year-long-career tonight and tomorrow at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles. To celebrate their mark in rock music’s history and in honor of their devoted fans, the band announces a full length concert film of the final performance, which will also include exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the last week of the tour, to be released in 2016! After thirty-four years performing together, the Final Tour has seen the band perform all across the globe, visiting an impressive 5 continents since July 2014 (North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia) for a total of more than 164 shows. Fans alike will be able to enjoy and/or relive the spectacular and cutting edge production elements of the Final Tour, such as Tommy Lee’s “Cruecifly” drum roller coaster, Nikki Sixx’s fire spitting bass performance, along with all the fan-favorite hits!
Christian Lamb has been tapped to direct the concert portion of the film, while Jeff Tremaine, creator of the Jackass series, is confirmed to direct the documentary segment. Produced and distributed by Live Alliance, the film will premier in theaters worldwide, as well as via Pay Per View in all cable/satellite/digital formats.
Following the news that Guns N’ Roses is supposedly confirmed for Coachella and a 2016 North American tour, Axl Rose is now reportedly set to discuss the band’s impending reunion on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” next week. A teaser from music journalist Mitch Lafon seems to sugguest that the episode will air on January 6, so remember to set your DVRs just in case.
The first part of the Death DTA European tour has been rescheduled due to Steve Digiorgoio’s and Gene Hoglan’s commitments to Testament. Obscura will still serve as support, but won’t play the final dates.
