Cattle Decapitation have shared a teaser for their new album “Death Atlas,“ while also revealing the cover art. You can check that out below. The record will be released on November 29.
Travis Ryan commented:
“We have crafted what we feel is our strongest album to date and we are really looking forward to bringing a couple of the tracks off of it to lacerate your eardrums on this upcoming Summer Slaughter Tour! Fans soon will witness the culmination of this last year’s blood, sweat, and tears honed to a devastating, brutal, and impactful audio document that I feel will resonate with fans of the last few records for years to come.
Musically and lyrically, there is a lot of grief, anger, hate, passion, and emotion poured into this one and we have found these can be excellent ingredients for extreme metal. We are once again rejuvenated and ready to spread the death and despair over this sphere that is perpetually being torn apart by us insignificants. There is no map to guide you out of this one – Death Atlas is coming!”
Iggy Pop has announced that his new album “Free” will be released on September 6. You can stream the effort’s title track below:
“This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…
By the end of the tours following ‘Post Pop Depression’, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long. But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need — not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free. So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.”
“Free” Track Listing:
02. “Loves Missing”
04. “James Bond”
05. “Dirty Sanchez”
06. “Glow In The Dark”
08. “We Are The People”
09. “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”
10. “The Dawn”
Petbrick, the project featuring Igor Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura, etc.) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Horse.” This track is from the duo’s debut album “I,” which will be released on October 25 via Closed Casket Activities.
“We wanted to do something different than the other projects we were involved in. Making horrible noise was the first concept behind Petbrick.”
“I think we realized that we were both pretty much in tune with each others taste, both into a lot of weird electronic music, as well as some decent far out guitar stuff. For me personally I definitely pushed the electronics in a much harsher direction.”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) has announced that her debut solo album “Martyr” will be released on October 7. The effort was co-written by ex-Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray and it will feature 11 tracks. Schoolcraft commented:
“At last I can finally share with the world what I’ve been so vaguely teasing online for years. I can’t thank my fans enough for being so patient about this release. Working with Rocky Gray has been a dream come true for me and the love I have for his work and my lyrical stories really shines through on this album. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did creating and recording it.”
During an appearance on “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon” Jeff Gutt revealed that Stone Temple Pilots have finished their new album. The effort is expected to be released in 2020.
Gutt previously called the album an “acoustic record,” but he has since clarified saying there were “no rules on it having to be acoustic or anything, [but] it has a vibe to it, and it’s beautiful.” He went on to confirm that “it’s all new songs.”
He also added:
“With the ‘Purple’ thing happening, it’s pushing back the other thing. ‘Cause we were only supposed to do a few songs, and it turned into a full record, ’cause we had so much creativity happening at the time. So we just made a whole record.”
Gutt also said the music is “definitely different” and that “it’s a very beautiful record” that he is “really happy with.”
