DevilDriver Drop Off Static-X’s North American Tour, Drowning Pool & Mushroomhead Added

“Hello everyone, My wife has been diagnosed with cancer. I will be staying home to care for her and be by her side every minute as she begins her Cancer fight with surgery and further treatments. Apologies to all but I’m sure you all understand that family comes before work. We thank you for all your well wishes at this time.”

Mushroomhead Tentatively Planning To Release New Album In March 2020

Mushroomhead are tentatively planning to release their new album in March 2020. Drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton told Rock Sins that the band are about 80% done with the effort and that “it’s just a matter of finding the right person to mix it and keep [them] on track for [their] deadlines.”

Skinny also revealed that the group did a recording session at Abbey Road Studios in London, England:

“…Basically, we got off the plane and got dropped off at Abbey Road, did a vocal session, then went and did our first show. That’s actually our 2nd time at Abbey Road, we did a vocal session there a year and a half ago and some of that got kept for this new record. Actually Jackie is on 4 of the new songs and 2 of the 4 were recorded at Abbey.

It’s pretty cool just be there, just sitting in the rooms where ‘Dark Side of the Moon‘ was done, where they do all the orchestras, all the soundtrack recordings, it’s crazy when you walk down the halls and see all the posters for ‘Star Wars‘, ‘Harry Potter‘, ‘Indiana Jones‘… So many, you just don’t even think of, it’s pretty crazy but awesome.”

He also added the following about the band’s plans for the record:

“…We’ll finish writing and recording, get to mixing… we’ve got a 4-5 week run in the States from October then we’ll get back to the album and making a video, which is another highlight. I love making video work it’s a lot of fun.”
