2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”

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.”

Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody To Release Illustrated Book Of Original Poems

Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody will be releasing an illustrated book of original poems, titled “Dirty Poetry,” this fall via Z2 Comics. You can pre-order that effort HERE.

Here’s a description of the book:

“Ever wondered what really lies beyond “where the sidewalk ends?” From the wonderfully twisted mind of the front man of Five Finger Death Punch; “Ivan Moody’s Dirty Poetry” is a book of original poems punctuated with dark art that’s guaranteed to inspire upside-down dreamscapes in the minds of its readers. Written by Ivan Moody himself, with beautifully haunting ink and watercolor illustrations by Blake Armstrong, Z2 Comics offers this Halloween treat to readers everywhere this October!”

Moody commented:

“Out of all the projects I’ve undertaken, this is something truly out of the ordinary, completely unorthodox, and without ‘creative walls.’ It is by far the oddest thing I’ve ever done (and that’s saying something). I had no idea how this would turn out but thankfully — between Blake and myself — I’m ecstatic with this first edition of ‘Dirty Poetry’. I’m intrigued and excited to share this full dose of my thought-provoking/chaotic and emotionally stimulating artistic vision with all of you. Welcome… to my rabbit hole.”

Armstrong added:

“‘Dirty Poetry’ definitely stands out as one of the more free and unique creative experiences I’ve had in my career. Ivan’s overall vision for this book was so twisted and tantalizing it would have been hard to keep me away from it. Our collaboration was truly a blast and I think the love shows on every page. My only hope is that the readers enjoy the book at least half as much as we did working on it. It’s gratifying to be a part of something so weird, unexpected and special.”
