Black Veil Brides have shared a behind the scenes look at their recently released video for “Fields Of Bone.“ You can check that out below. “Fields Of Bone“ is from the band’s new concept album “The Phantom Tomorrow,“ which will be released on June 4.
In episode four of a six-part interview with Terry “Beez” Bezer of Knotfest.com‘s “Mosh Talks With Beez,” Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan discussed the new material that he has been working on. The percussionist says that he actually “got very creative” during the pandemic.
Clown said the following when asked if any of the new music is finished:
“Nothing is ever done. Why? Because nothing is ever done until everyone in the band has had their say. I like to back that. If it hasn’t happened, no one grabbed me, I will fight for that. We merely do what we do in this life. Right now, the pandemic hit, and it made me creative. And if anybody’s mad at me for being creative, I don’t know what to say about it. But I know that we can use all of it, or none of it — I don’t care either way. So I will let you know, maybe we will use all of it or none of it — either way, we don’t need to make it confusing. But I will play it until Sid Wilson has said what he wants to say, listened to every ounce, been able to take his time. I point him out, because he has not been one of the people yet to be here; that’s gonna happen very soon, as I go into his location, and doing the same thing. I say him, because until he has heard everything, there could be a possibility, from A to Z, basically, to have his say and his due diligence to be 0, SLIPKNOT’s guy, an O.G., Sid Wilson. I mean, come on. It’s never done. So it gets confusing. Maybe you get to talk to me, but you don’t get to talk to anyone else, so no one else gets to talk about it. So it gets confusing. So I wanna make it unconfusing.”
He also added:
“I got very creative. I created — how many [pieces of music]? I’m not gonna say. Because then the suits and all the stupid people, they wanna bug me. When I say ‘stupid people,’ I mean, they’re actually very smart. Then, next thing you know, I’m in a mouse trap and I don’t know what to do, and blah blah blah. But everybody just needs to know I’m in my basement, with my stuff, doing my thing, with my friends, the way we want to. There’s no one telling us anything… And Corey Taylor has gotten almost all of it and partaken on almost on all of it, which has made it a completely other sort of weird thing. But I’m going on record right now that we could be talking about one song.”
“World Of Tanks” are celebrating the release of The Offspring’s new album “Let The Bad Times Roll” by bringing back in-game content inspired by the band until April 26.

Moon Tooth are among the artists who contributed to “The AMH Comp, Volume 2“ compilation in an effort to raise money for the Amityville Music Hall in Amityville, NY. The band recorded a cover of Frank Zappa‘s “Magic Fingers” for the release and it can be streamed below:
Mason Hill’s debut album “Against The Wall” has been generating quite a buzz in the UK and it’s easy to see why. The effort is a powerful display of modern rock that is perfect for fans of artists like Theory Of A Deadman, Nickelback, and Shaman’s Harvest.
The effort kicks off with the slow intro track “Reborn,” before really blasting off with “No Regret.” The latter gives you a sense of what to expect from the rest of the record, catchy post-grunge tracks comprised of great musicianship and impeccable vocals.
As one moves further through the record, they will continue to find bangers such as the title track, “Broken Son,” and “D.N.A.” These three songs find the band at their best. They are infectious, anthemic, and keep the listener wanting more.
From there, things slow down a bit with the ballad “Who We Are,” before picking back up with “Find My Way” and “Hold On.” “Hold On” in particular is especially killer with a riffy, Black Stone Cherry vibe that you can’t help but jam to.
That energy then carries over to the power ballad “Out Of Reach” and the rockin’ “We Pray.” However, things start to slow down again with “Where I Belong,” which offers a more emotional side of the group’s sound as they bring everything full circle by ending with “Reborn (Prologue).”
All in all, “Against The Wall” is an amazing album from a band that have the potential to make it big in the future.
The Struts have teamed up with Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, for a new song titled “Low Key In Love.” You can check out that track below:
The Struts frontman Luke Spiller commented:
“‘Low Key In Love’ was written after a date in Los Angeles at 70’s retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe.
When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set. Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her.
I’m convinced some things are just written in the stars. Bringing in Paris just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life. She is beautiful and brilliant. A star.”
“I first heard of The Struts when I went to go see Mötley Crüe play their final set on New Year’s Eve night at Staples Center a few years ago. The boys opened up for them and I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was. I just remember turning to my friend and saying ‘who the fuck are these guys!?’ I was so blown away by their talent, their stage presence, and their energy.
It felt like I had time travelled and got to experience what rock’n’roll was at its prime, like with The Rolling Stones and Queen. I started listening to their music and would see them at events here and there, and we’ve always been pretty friendly online.
When Luke asked to work with me, it was an immediate yes. It’s been a privilege and an honour to sing on a song that I know means so much to Luke, and I’m grateful for the friendship that has sprung from such a lovely project. It’s unlike anything I have ever done or thought to do before, and I’m here for it!”
