As previously teased, surviving Nirvana members Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear reunited onstage once again during Foo Fighters’ set at the Cal Jam festival in San Bernardino, CA last night (October 6). The group were joined by John McCauley (Deer Tick) and Joan Jett and the following tracks were perfomed: “Serve The Servants” (feat. McCauley), “Scentless Apprentice” (feat. McCauley), “In Bloom” (feat. McCauley), “Breed” (feat. Joan Jett), Smells Like Teen Spirit (feat. Joan Jett), and All Apologies (feat. Joan Jett and Brody Dalle).
It looks like surviving Nirvana members Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear will be reuniting onstage once again during Cal Jam, which is set to take place on October 6 at the Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA. The rumors stem from a cryptic teaser Foo Fighters posted featuring “Serve The Servants” being played backwards along with footage from a reunion show the group played after the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony. That set featured various guests including Joan Jett and John McCauley (Deer Tick), both of whom are scheduled to appear at the festival. Novoselic‘s band Giants In The Trees will perfom as well. Furthermore, the teaser was retweeted by the Nirvana account adding fuel to the fire. This news comes after the former Nirvana bandmates reunited during Foo Fighters’ September 1 show in Seattle, WA.
Murderdolls members Wednesday 13, Eric Griffin, and Acey Slade reunited for a special show to pay tribute to late drummer Ben Graves. The event took place at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood, CA yesterday (August 16) and footage of the group performing “People Hate Me” can be seen below:
Just four days after the February 23 release of their latest album “Cian Bi,“ Tengger Cavalry announced that they would be calling it quits. Now, the band have decided to regroup. You can check out a new video for the radio edit of their new song “Heart” below. It is much shorter than the standard version of the track, which is 13 minutes long.
Nature Ganganbaigal told Billboard the following about the song:
“It is a long 13 min track featuring multiple nomadic folk artists from China and few amazing American musicians. As the song title suggests, it is a song dedicated to all of my fans who put their hearts into what they truly love and believe.”
He also commented on the band’s return:
“After a long break, it is great to feel like creating what I love again. Moreover I am more than grateful to have all the band members, friends, fans and ppl around me to give a support for relaunching the band. It is more than a passion. It is a cultural project that I intend to share with everyone and I will do my best to keep on going. Last but not least, I want to thank Napalm Records for believing in me and giving me time to heal even when I was in my darkest hours.”
You can head to Billboard to read more and can also donate to the band’s crowdfunding campaign so they can play at Carnegie Hall in New York City once again.
As I Lay Dying have premiered a new video for their new song “My Own Grave.” The clip also confirms that the band’s classic lineup, featuring Tim Lambesis, Nick Hipa, Josh Gilbert, Jordan Mancino and Phil Sgrosso, have officially reunited. The track serves as the group’s first new music in six years. With this news, the band have also announced that they will be performing at the SOMA Sidestage in San Diego, CA on June 16. Lambesis infamously tried to hire a hitman to kill his wife in 2013 and was released from prison in December 2016. He has since apologized for his actions.
As I Lay Dying recently shared a tease of some new music and the clip offered a glimpse of their current lineup. There is no official confirmation as of yet, but sites like Rock Feed, Lambgoat, and MetalSucks are reporting that the video contains some pieces of evidence (tattoos, mannerisms, instruments, etc.) that seem to suggest Jordan Mancino, Phil Sgrosso, Nick Hipa, and Josh Gilbert will be rejoining Tim Lambesis in the group. On top of that, Wovenwar, the band the others made after As I Lay Dying, hasn’t been active for months. Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife in 2013, and his bandmates, especially Hipa, were understandably critical of his actions.
