Traitors Return, Premiere New Single & Announce Tour

Traitors are back after a initially planning to call it quits earlier this year. You can listen to their new single “Lashing Out” below:

Vocalist Tyler Shelton commented:

“Nothing has me more excited than to be making music for all of our incredible fans again. ‘Lashing Out’ represents the emotion of reclusion. It’s about the person that you become if you give yourself too much time to think, and you bottle up all of your hate because you’ve got too much pride.

These past six months have been nothing but thinking for me. Thinking of you guys was a bittersweet feeling. We will continue to create music and as always, it’s coming from the heart. I am eager to show you all what’s been stuck so deeply inside of my mind on our upcoming record. We will travel to very dark depths, unraveling what happens to the human mind when you do nothing with yourself every day. I hope to see you all at our upcoming tour dates.”

Rex Brown Says Pantera Once Came “Close” To Reuniting

Pantera’s Rex Brown was recently interviewed by Loudwire, and was asked about how close Pantera have come to reuniting. He simply responded by saying “close”.

Brown further added:

“Well, I just speak for myself. I mean, I’d love to get out there and play those songs again. And if everybody else was willing to do it… You know, I think the whole thing would be get us all in a room, throw some water on it and get that water underneath the bridge all settled and make some music again. But it would be different. We’d be missing something. And that’s the big ugh. I’m just being as honest as I can. It would be different.”

“I’d do anything to have that back—family and all that kind of stuff. I never say ‘never’ on that kind of thing, and I’m tired of saying, you know, ‘hell freezes over,’ or whatever, but at the same time, life is getting too short and you never know… But I’m not saying there’s been any talks at all.

Would I do it? Phillip, I just saw Phil not long ago. We’re all doing our own things… I’d get up there and do it for fucking nothing.”

Fans have been wanting a reunion for a long time, but with Dimebag’s tragic death and the conflict between Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul it is hard to imagine it will ever happen. However, if it does happen, Zakk Wylde is expected to fill in on guitar.

The Juliana Theory Postpone Summer Tour, Writing New Album

The Juliana Theory have revealed that have decided to postpone to their summer tour. Despite this, the band have also announced that they are working on a new album.

The group said the following:

“To our Friends & Fans,

When we realized 2017 was the band’s 20th anniversary we decided to do a handful of reunion shows because we missed playing together & missed all of you. The plan was to play a few shows filled with our old songs and then we’d put the band to rest again forever (or for a very, very long time).

But when we announced that we’d be playing these shows your reaction was overwhelming. Making music together again – all of us in one place for the first time in many years – just felt right.

We felt inspired and saw a future that extends beyond nostalgia… To make a long story short, we’ve decided to be a band again and we are thrilled to announce that we have begun writing a new record.

We’ve made the decision to postpone our summer tour so that this new music can be shared with all of you prior to and during these shows. Refunds will be issued for all of the tickets purchased and we will have further of announcements of new tour dates etc for you soon.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we promise to make it up to you shortly.

We love you and cannot thank you enough for always inspiring us.

Love,
The Juliana Theory“

Gerard Way Says He “Wouldn’t Count Out” A My Chemical Romance Reunion

Gerard Way was recently interviewed by Billboard about his work in the comic world, and was asked about the possibility of a My Chemical Romance Reunion. He responded with the following:

“I wouldn’t count [a reunion] out. At the same time, everybody’s doing stuff in their lives now that they’re really enjoying. In some ways I don’t really miss it. It had gotten so big it was very unwieldy. It took a toll on my mental life and personal life. The thing I’m happiest about right now is everybody’s relationships with each other are really strong. That’s more important than anything else to me.”

Way went on to say he did work with with My Chemical Romance guitarist Ray Toro on two songs called “Into the Cave We Wander” and “Pogi’s Cavern” for his “Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye” book. He also said he is thinking about making music for other releases on his Young Animal imprint:

“I was really inspired. I had tried the comics/music thing before The Killjoys. That didn’t quite work in terms of how I feel how artistically connected and successful they were, and a lot of that was because the music part with MCR overshadowed the book. This feels more natural; I just do it when I’m inspired. I like doing things that are accurate to the world of the comics. That’s really fun. And we talk about doing a whole Young Animal record, so we’re working on that right now.”

Lastly, he also talked about putting together another solo album:

“I’m just about to seriously figure out my schedule in terms of how many weeks. I’m writing comics and how many weeks I’m writing music. There’s a plan to put something out; I don’t know when that’ll come, but the process is starting.”

Dave Grohl On Possible Them Crooked Vultures Reunion: “We Do Talk About It”

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) was recently interviewed on Beats 1 Radio and was asked about the possibility of reuniting with his Them Crooked Vultures bandmates John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age). He responded with the following:

“We do talk about it. Every once in a while, you’ll be up at night drinking a bottle of wine by yourself, and you’ll watch some Crooked Vultures live thing on YouTube and go, ‘We were so good!’ and then we’ll text each other saying, ‘Miss you man!’”
