Intronaut have posted a teaser for their new song “Cubensis.” The full track will debut on December 11 and it will serve as the first single from the band’s upcoming album.
As previously reported, music gear that used to belong to late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads has been stolen from the Musonia School Of Music in North Hollywood, CA. Osbourne has since commented on the situation, saying that he is offering a “$25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items.”
Osbourne said the following:
“As many of you have heard, the Musonia School of Music in N. Hollywood, CA (the school where Randy Rhoads famously taught guitar) was viciously robbed on Thanksgiving night. Musonia was run by Randy’s late mother, Delores, and after his death 37 years ago, the school became something of a pilgrimage to his fans from all over the world. It is a place where the Rhoads Family happily opened their hearts to share the life of Randy. As you can imagine, the items that were stolen, including Randy’s first electric guitar, are irreplaceable to the Rhoads Family. I am heartbroken that these treasured physical memories of Randy and Delores have been taken from the family so I’ve decided to personally offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items. For information regarding the theft or return of these items please contact: Nick D’Argenzio Phone: 818-281-7893 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a list and images of the items that were taken:
· Randy Rhoads’ First Electric Guitar Owned, Harmony Rocket Est. 1963
· Randy Rhoads’ Original Quiet Riot Gear – Peavey Amp Head, 1970s
· Randy Rhoads Series Marshall Head, Rare Protoype No. 1 or 2 given to the family by Marshall Company.
· Delores Rhoads’ First Trumpet, a Prewar/Great Depression Era Silver Fresh Besson Trumpet. This was given to her as a child by her medical doctor father in exchange for medical services as a barter during the great depression. This subsequently sparked Delores Rhoads long lived music career.
· 40 years of fan gifts to the Rhoads Family, memorabilia, all photos of Randy Rhoads, the Osbournes, Delores Rhoads, and miscellaneous instruments were taken. The photo shown in the main room was cleared out.”
During his December 6 show at the Pico Union Project in Los Angeles, CA, Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) was joined onstage by Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.), Gil Sharone (ex-Marilyn Manson, etc.), James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth, etc.), and more. You can check out fan-filmed footage from the show below. Cantrell will return to the stage at the same venue tonight (December 7).
During an appearance on the “Vox&Hops” podcast, Danny Marino was asked if The Agonist would ever consider touring with Arch Enemy, who feature their former singer Alissa White-Gluz. The guitarist responded by saying he “would consider it if there was an open discussion between” the two bands.
Marino said the following when asked if the two groups would ever tour together:
“Now, no… I’m not one to be, like, ‘Never forgive,’ or anything like that, which is the title of an ARCH ENEMY song, since [Alissa] joined [them] — ‘Never Forgive, Never Forget’… So, I’m never like that. I would consider it if there was an open discussion between their band and our band.”
He also added that he doesn’t like having bad blood between him and White-Gluz:
“Not only do we live in the same city [Montreal], we live in the same district of the same city. She lives on my street — at the other end of it. But it’s not a long street. And she hasn’t moved. And neither have I. And I’ve never seen her [after she left the band], which is crazy, if you think about it. The fact that my drummer, who lives on the other side of the city, has seen her multiple times on the street. And the last time [she saw him], I think, she crossed the street. But then, at the same time, she saw [bassist Chris] Kells at a show, and there was a bunch of people around from different bands that everyone knew each other — I forget what show it was he was at — and she said hi to him.”
However, Marino went on to say that he did take issue with the way White-Gluz talked a bout the band after her departure:
“That’s what I said when I released the statement outlining the whole thing, the whole drama, that I don’t understand why she was on to a much better place, financially and business-wise speaking, but in every interview that she did — ’cause she did a lot in the first album release that they did — she had to mention all this negativity and purposely put us down and call names and all this stuff. And I was, like, I didn’t understand how you could be punching down like that. You decided to take a leap to make yourself better and more popular and advance yourself as an artist, and then you’re mad at us because we’re not being your side band. It’s, like, no, we wanna be an ‘A band’ too. That’s what we’re gonna continue to do.”
This news comes after The Agonist’s current singer Vicky Psarakis recently said she would be open to talking to White-Gluz, after previously claiming that “she has been trying to kill [the] band ever since she was fired.”
For over a year, rumors of AC/DC releasing a new album featuring late guitarist Malcolm Young have been circulating online. Now, Behemoth’s Nergal and Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider have both added fuel to the fire by claiming that the band’s surviving members are planning to release new music containing material that Young recorded before his death.
Nergal told Loudwire the following:
“I know there’s a new AC/DC album in the making with Malcolm Young. It’s coming. It’s going to be an outtake from Rock or Bust. What do I expect? I expect nothing more and nothing less, just give me fucking rhythm and Angus and Malcom’s guitar. Don’t give me anything extra. [Brian Johnson] is back in the band.”
Snider also commented on Twitter, while responding to a fan who asked if a member of AC/DC is sick:
“He died. RIP Malcolm Young. But all four surviving members have reunited WITH tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive. Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band.”
Rumors of a new AC/DC album have been heating up ever since photos leaked of Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, Angus Young, and Stevie Young at Vancouver’s Warehouse Studio last year. Johnson also added fuel to the fire after reportedly telling Terrorizer that the rumors were true. After that, another photo surfaced suggesting that Cliff Williams may be involved in the album, despite his retirement. More recently, the band’s longtime engineer Mike Fraser confirmed that the band have “been in the studio doing something.”
Me And That Man have premiered a new song titled “Run With The Devil.“ This track features Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) and an official video for it can be found below:
Nergal (Behemoth) commented:
“This one was a lot of fun! When I first started thinking of the imagery to the track, I wanted to create something more than a music video, I wanted a music movie which carries on from where ‘Nightride‘ left off. Don’t take it too seriously, we’re metaphorically burying the past and bringing in a new! A great way to introduce the next incarnation of Me And That Man… but what next? Stick around, there is plenty of rather splendid things to see soon!”
