We Came As Romans To Honor Kyle Pavone On Upcoming Tour With Bullet For My Valentine

We Came As Romans have confirmed that they will be moving ahead with their planned tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Bad Omens. The band will use the trek as a way to honor their late singer Kyle Pavone.

Dave Stephens said the following:

“The last few weeks Kyle‘s family, his fans, his friends, and the five of us have been expericing a very wide range of emotions, and for us it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving.

So, through all this we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would have wanted us to do and us be together on stage, playing music together, with our fans.

We will not be replacing Kyle. We’ll be continuing on the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”

Vinnie Paul All-Star Tributes To Be Held At Louder Than Life & Aftershock Festivals

This year’s Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals will be hosting some special all-star tributes for the late Vinnie Paul (Pantera, HELLYEAH, etc.). The sets are being curated by SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin and they will feature various artists performing Pantera and Damageplan covers.

Members of the following bands will be participating:

Louder Than Life: Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, HELLYEAH, Sevendust, GWAR, Bullet For My Valentine, Body Count, Kyng, Cane Hill, and more.

Aftershock: Korn, Godsmack, Deftones, HELLYEAH, Shinedown, Sevendust, GWAR, Kyng, Emmure, and more.

Mangin commented:

“Vinnie is an idol turned big time friend, and he left a massive void on this earth. When Danny [Wimmer] and Gary [Spivack] asked me to put together something special for Vin, I knew the best way to pay tribute to him would be to throw a Texas-sized jam session belting out Pan-mutha-fukkin-tera songs loud & proud! Everyone involved is doing this because they love Vinnie, and together we can all carry on his name, music and spirit forever!”

Louder Than Life will be held on September 28-30 at Champions Park in Louisville, KY and Aftershock will be held on October 13-14 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.

Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck Says Metal Has “Gone A Bit Stale”

During an interview with Metal Hammer, Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck said he believes metal has “gone a bit stale.” You can read his thoughts on that below:

“I am never going to turn my back on metal, because it’s been my life for 20-odd years, but for me as a songwriter in the genre it’s all gone a bit stale. I’ve got to an age now, 38, where unique instrumentation and the way albums are produced and written has become more appealing to me. Someone like Muse’s Matt Bellamy can take a guitar and turn it into anything he wants it to be. Being in a metal band and watching 100 other metal bands, everyone’s using the same kind of techniques, scales and guitar tones – genre-standard things. For this new record, we’re trying to be different.”
