Avenged Sevenfold To “Start Really Getting Into The Writing Of A Possible New Record” In September Or October

During an interview with Ronni Hunter of WRKZ 99.7 The Blitz, Johnny Christ revealed that Avenged Sevenfold may “start really getting into the writing of a possible new record” in September or October. He said the following:

“Right now, it’s probably a little bit more of getting our own ideas and just writing by ourselves in our studios and stuff at home. And then we’ll probably throw all of those ideas away when we come up with what kind of idea we’re gonna do. But, yeah, right now we’re excited for the rest of this summer tour, and then we plan on pretty much hitting the ground running as soon as we get back and finish this tour in September. Probably September or October, we’ll start really getting into the writing of a possible new record. And it’ll be exciting. Not sure what it’ll be.”

This news comes after M. Shadows previously said the band may start working on a new album in the fall, and that they hope to conclude their legal battle with Warner Bros. before then.

Indecision/Most Precious Blood Guitarist Turned Councilman Introduces A Bill To Ban Hidden Ticket Fees

New York City councilman Justin Brannan, who played guitar in Most Precious Blood and Indecision, has introduced a new bill that would stop ticketing websites from charging hidden fees, so customers can see what they are paying for before entering their payment information. Brannan told New York Daily News the following:

“When I was a touring musician, live shows were about having fun and building a sense of community — not nickel and diming kids who like music. Ticket prices in our city are already through the roof. New Yorkers don’t need big retailers making things worse by hiding extra fees until the very end of a sale. Nobody wants to click on a ticket that costs $50, fill in their name, address, telephone number, email, and credit card information, and then find out it actually costs $100 or more.”

His proposal would also require fees to be listed in ads that “tout the price of tickets.”

Anaal Nathrakh To Release New Album “A New Kind Of Horror” In September

Anaal Nathrakh have announced that their new album “A New Kind Of Horror” will be released on September 28. Vocalist Dave Hunt commented:

“This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it.”

He also added:

“There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for ‘A New Kind Of Horror‘ we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.”

Our tenth full length album ‘ A New Kind Of Horrow’ will be released on Metal Blade Records on September 28th. When writing about A New Kind Of Horror in the record’s liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description: “This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it.” Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band’s tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. “There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for A New Kind of Horror we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.” #anaalnathrakh

Bill Ward (Ex-Black Sabbath) Working On New Day Of Errors, Finishes New Book Of “Poems And Statements”

During an interview conducted for Rhythm magazine, Bill Ward (ex-Black Sabbath) revealed that he is working on a new Day Of Errors release, and that he has also completed a new “book of poems and statements.” He said the following:

“I’ve spent five months writing; I just can’t stop writing,” he said. “I’ve been writing music and I’ve finished writing a book of poems and statements and things like that. I’m working on a release for Day Of Errors as well.”

He also talked a bit about the formation of Day Of Errors:

“I got so lonely in 2012 and I wasn’t playing drums. I thought I would just form my own band and play drums again. I think it was 2013 that we started looking for two other people and formed Day Of Errors. We did some gigs last year that went down well and we’re hoping to do more in September, October, November and December, just in the U.S. for the time being.”
