John 5 Premieres Music Video For New Song “Que Pasa” Featuring Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine

John 5 (Rob Zombie, ex-Marilyn Manson) has premiered a new video for his new song “Que Pasa.” This track features Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and it will appear on the guitarist’s new solo album, “Sinner,” which is set to be released on October 29.

John 5 said the following about the new song:

“I have such an appreciation for Dave, and I love his voice, guitar playing and songwriting. And he kills it on ‘Que Pasa‘. It was such a joy to have him on this track.”

He also added the following about the album:

“When people hear this record, I want them to say, ‘Oh, that’s John 5.’ What you get with ‘Sinner’ is the best of me. I just want to write memorable riffs that people will enjoy. When I sit on my couch and play my guitar, I play the same things you hear on the instrumental records. It’s honest. It’s real. It’s not a façade. This is how I play. This is what I love to do.”

Butcher Babies Premiere New Song “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!” Featuring Escape The Fate’s Craig Mabbitt

Butcher Babies have premiered a new song titled “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!.” The track, which features Escape The Fate’s Craig Mabbitt, is inspired by DC Comics’ Lobo and it can be streamed below:

Henry Flury said the following:

“From beginning to end, ‘Killin’ Time’ is a relentless groove-infused face melter that is guaranteed to give you bang-over.”

Carla Harvey continued:

“I can’t think of a better song to release the day before we hit the road on our first tour in over two years. It’s killin time, baby…in more ways than one!! As a lifelong comic book aficionado, it was so much fun to write a song based on one of my favorite characters, the bounty huntin’ space cowboy himself, Lobo. When Heidi and I were penning the lyrics we thought, are we really writing a song about a Bastitch on a Spaz Frag? Hell yes, because just like Lobo, we like a good time. It was also a cool new experience for us to throw another singer in the mix for this one! Craig Mabbitt’s screams add another level to this banger…enjoy!”

Heidi Shepherd added:

“HOLY FRAGG, SPACE HOG! We are fraggin’ stoked to bring to you our latest banger, ‘It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!’ inspired by the main man himself, Lobo! This bounty hunter, biker has a way of stealing even the blackest of hearts. Between breaking legs and breaking hearts, Lobo embodies the heavy metal attitude we all need in 2021!

We were so lucky to have our buddy, the very talented Craig Mabbitt from Escape The Fate and Dead Rabbitts, join us in this jam! Our incredible producer, Matt Good, brought this comic-themed dream to life and we CANNOT wait for you to hear it and then rock it LIVE in the pit!!”

Mabbitt also commented:

“Thank you to the Butcher Babies for including me in this awesome track, and for introducing me to Lobo!!”

Butcher Babies & Five Finger Death Punch Members Featured In Rue Vox’s Music Video For “90s Villain”

Rue Vox has premiered a new video for her new single “90s Villain.” The clip, which can be seen below, features Butcher Babies’ Henry Flury and Heidi Shepherd as well as Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael.

Rue Vox commented:

“90s Villain shows how our character defects can find a way to take us out in the end. I wrote this song to kind of call myself out in how I’ve been a terrible girlfriend in my past. In the video I’m a serial killer who ends up getting murdered by her would-be-victim. It symbolizes how the worst parts of us have to die, sometimes involuntarily, in order for us to truly live.”

Director Shane O’Neal added:

“Rue Vox is a beast of a talent behind the microphone and her creativity doesn’t stop there. She came to me with the inspiration for her music video to be a female slasher and the epitome of a 90s Villain. We took our love of giallo films to the next level and delivered a pulp-esque style short film. We shot on Red camera with appearances by Butcher Babies and 5FDP’s Chris Kael, and all slated in the dingiest, grimiest motel on the Las Vegas Strip as each victim plays the odds with a seductress. And so the slaughterhouse began.”

Heidi Shepherd (Butcher Babies) Guests On New Rev Theory Song “Urinal Rodeo”

Heidi Shepherd (Butcher Babies) is featured on a new Rev Theory song titled “Urinal Rodeo.” You can check out that track below. The band commented:

“This track has been a long time comin y’all! What started out as a low key collab with our homie Brandon Saller [Atreyu], quickly evolved into a beastly amalgamation of style and form. After enlisting our good friend Heidi Shepherd to lay down guest screams, she came to the table with a sick verse idea to add her signature flavor. We’ve had this one in our back pocket for a minute, and are so amped to finally unleash ‘Urinal Rodeo’!”

Heidi Shepherd commented:

“Blasting back into the realm of live music is already the thing that I am most excited about in life. Adding in playing our debut album ‘Goliath’ every night on top of that makes this one of our most explosive tours to date. I’m especially excited to bring our friends in Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart along for the ride. This will without a doubt be a DO-NOT-MISS tour with some of the fiercest ladies in metal!”

Carla Harvey continued:

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road. I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”

Henry Flury added:

“We can’t wait to unleash ‘Goliath’ in the stage. Beware kids…we’ve been hibernating. On a scale of 1 to melted faces, get ready to receive an 11.”
