“Empathy” 11.07.2020, Richmond, VA. CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, CBS… all the major news networks have just called the 2020 Presidential election for Joe Biden & Kamala Harris. Although these are just projections by media outlets (nothing is official until the members of the Electoral College cast their votes on Dec. 14th, 2020, then announced by a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, 2021), & although there will be a lot of lawsuits brought forth by Donald Trump who will not concede anytime soon (or ever?), it’s obvious that it’s OVER- Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. At this time, I would like to encourage everyone, no matter who you voted for, to behave with some class; to speak & act with some empathy. This country has been consumed by a toxic polarity- it is time for that toxicity to end, because it is not sustainable & it does not accomplish anything. We are all tired. We all have strong feelings. It is time to act like adults with correctly calibrated moral compasses. My feelings about President Trump (& politicians in general, for that matter) are well known, but I have zero reason to gloat. That is childish, & it accomplishes nothing. Instead I will choose to act with empathy, & hope that some level of civility will return to American discourse across the board. I just came back from a “Stop the Steal” rally near the VA State Capitol, where I shot these photos. No one was rude to me, & they announced from the beginning that it would be a peaceful protest- that is their right, & although I disagree with them, I support their right- they are my countrymen & women. These people are going to be very upset today- I will show people like this empathy in the hope that we can find common ground somehow, & that this terrible atmosphere that has hung over America for the last 4 years will begin to lift. It HAS to, or we all are screwed. Please- let’s all start talking to each other again. I hope you all have a good day- now, I’m going surfing. Peace. #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaM10P #LeicaM10Ptyp3656 #🔴📷 #Summilux #Summilux50mm #LeicaCraft #MadeInWetzlar #drandallblythe #RatsEyesPhotography #honetheaesthetic

Congratulations to President Elect Joe Biden and trailblazer Kamala Harris !!! It’s been hard for me to stay silent over the last few days, weeks, months, but I felt it would be wrong to interfere in even the smallest way in the politics of another country. But there is a part of me that will always be rooted in the USA – I love America and have felt profound pain watching its freedoms and decency being eroded. I can now finally speak up. I feel massive joy – I see this is a victory for the people by the people – and hopefully just in time to make it possible to start to heal the terrible damage that has been done to the American Nation and its standing in the World in recent times. I’m thrilled for my dear American friends, that they have taken this step to reclaim compassion, justice, truth, accountability, and dignity. I’m well aware that America is split as to whether Trump as a president was a Champ or a Chump. But what you guys will discover over the next few weeks is that the rest of the world was NOT split. The whole world, like me, is rejoicing with you at this moment – feeling that we are getting our best friend back – our friend America. Yes – I will pray for unity and decent debate, with some great Rebublicans sharing the work load in the new regime. And – Yes – at last – the United States of America can again be Champions of the World !!! Bri

Powerman 5000 Stream Re-Recorded Version Of “When Worlds Collide”

Powerman 5000 are streaming a re-recorded version of their song “When Worlds Collide.” This version of the track was previously released as a bonus track on the CD edition of the band’s latest album “The Noble Rot.“ The original version is from their 1999 album “Tonight The Stars Revolt!.“ Spider One commented:

“Re-recording ‘When Worlds Collide‘ was like jumping into a time machine. We play that song live every night on tour but I hadn’t actually listened to the recorded version in a long time. So, when it came time to tackle the re-record, it was a weird process of trying to emulate myself. Which all these years later seemed like a stranger.”

Powerman 5000 Premiere “Strange People Doing Strange Things” Video

Powerman 5000 have premiered an animated video for their song “Strange People Doing Strange Things.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “The Noble Rot.” Spider One commented:

What started out as some simple ‘follow the bouncing ball’ animation ended up being a challenge to see if I could actually finish this thing. Just shy of three thousand drawings later, it is what it is. Next time I attempt an animated video, I will choose a shorter song!”

Powerman 5000’s Spider One Calls Out Bands For Playing Upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest”, Nonpoint Drop Off

In unsurprising news, the upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest,” which is set to take place at The Q&Z Expo Center in Ringle, WI on July 16-18, has been generating some controversy, considering we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Among those who called out the event was Powerman 5000’s Spider One, who tweeted the following:

Nonpoint, who were scheduled to perform at the festival, also responded to Spider One saying that they dropped off:

Organizers have also addressed the backlash themselves by changing the name of the event:

“For the record the venues land can accommodate up to 10,000 occupancy. This is an OUTDOOR EVENT for 3 Days. We are only selling 20% of that so anyone has the choice and ability to social distance. The Festival is also not called “Herd Immunity” and the name no longer tied to any of our social media or promotion.”

Watch Graham Bonnet Perform Michael Schenker Group’s “Assault Attack” With Vio-lence, Bleeding Through, Armored Saint, Etc. Members

Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head) has shared a quarantine cover of the Michael Schenker Group’s “Assault Attack.” The track also features Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow, ex-Michael Schenker Group), Marta Demmel (Bleeding Through), John Tempesta (The Cult), Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning), and Mike Tempesta (ex-Powerman 5000).

Phil Demmel commented:

“I knew I had wanted to jam on a tune with Johnny but I hadn’t came across which one. I knew he was a huge Cozy Powell fan and we both love Schenker so I proposed the instrumental MSG tune ‘Into the Arena’. He had done something similar to that tune previously with his brother Mike and suggested the banger track ‘Assault Attack’, off a record featuring vocalist Graham Bonnet and a friend of John’s, Ted Mckenna (who had tragically passed away a few years back). He then (kinda) joked about asking Graham to sing on it then reached out to him and made it happen! Marta nailed the keys and vocal harmonies and our good friend and incredible bassist Joey Vera from the legendary Armored Saint not only laid down the bass tracks, but also provided the mix for this. Mike and I both played our Schenker tribute guitars Originally aired for Metal Injections ‘Slay at Home’ fest and video edit by Frank Godla. Thanks to Conrad for getting us Graham’s vocal/vid, and to Joey Vera for the mix!”

Powerman 5000 Premiere “Black Lipstick” Music Video

Powerman 5000 have premiered a new video for their new song “Black Lipstick.” This track is from their new album “The Noble Rot,” which will be released on August 28.

Spider One said the following about the song:

“I believe this was the first song we wrote for the album. It kind of laid the groundwork for the sound of the whole record. Kind of more experimental and electronic than the previous one. I think I may have been trying to channel Peter Murphy with the vocals.”

He also added the following about the video:

“I had been watching a lot of clips from the British music show ‘Top Of The Pops’ and decided that creating a fake music show called ‘Pop Toppers’ would be a pretty fun idea for a music video. Though just having Powerman 5000 performing the song seemed a bit whatever. That’s when I dreamed up the fictitious female goth band Holly Holly And The Night Cloaks. Having this Siouxsie & The Banshees-type band lip sync our song was hilarious and matched the dark wave tone of the song perfectly.”

“The Noble Rot” Track Listing:

01. “Cannibal Killers That Kill Everyone”
02. “Brave New World”
03. “Play God Or Play Dead”
04. “Black Lipstick”
05. “Special Effects”
06. “Let The Insects Rule”
07. “Movie Blood”
08. “Strange People Doing Strange Things”
09. “We Got The Beat” (The Go-Go’s cover)
10. “VHS”

As previously reported, the CD version will also come with a re-recorded version of “When Worlds Collide” as a bonus track.
