The Darkness Premiere “Solid Gold” Music Video

The Darkness have premiered a new video for their song “Solid Gold.” This song is from their new album “Pinewood Smile,” which will be released on October 6. Justin Hawkins commented:

“We have written this song to reassure you all that having now released more music in the period after our well-publicized hiatus than in the period before it, we have no intention whatsoever of stopping. Hence the lyric ‘We’re never gonna stop… Shitting out solid gold.’ Barring any unforeseen circumstances, The Darkness will always be here to delight and beguile. You’re welcome.”

Fireball Ministry Reveal “Remember The Story” Cover Art & Track Listing

Fireball Ministry have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new album “Remember The Story.” That effort will be released on October 6.

“Remember The Story” Track Listing:

01. “End Of Our Truth”
02. “Everything You Wanted”
03. “Back On Earth”
04. “The Answer”
05. “Dying To Win”
06. “Stop Talking”
07. “Weaver’s Dawn”
08. “Remember The Story”
09. “All For Naught”
10. “I Don’t Believe A Word”

Emily J Burton said the following:

“‘Remember The Story’ is about moving forward while staying connected to your past. With this album we’ve reached a new stage of crystallization and prowess in our riffage.”

James A Rota added:

“This is a very personal record to me and was written from down deep. It’s also an honor to be playing alongside Emily [Burton] and John [Oreshnick] for the last twenty years. Having Scott [Reeder] with us along for the ride has made our greatest music to date, in my humble opinion.”

Caitlin Mattisso, who created the cover art, also commented:

“The vulture represents renewal and transformation and has connections to many mythologies and cultures, from being descended from Griffins in Greek mythology to the scientific (Latin) name of Turkey Vulture translating to Golden Purifier, which ties in to Jim’s theme about a second chance at life. Elements inspired by Hildgard of Bingen have been worked into the border shapes, as well as two blown-out candles on the front. The book on the front is a Fireball Ministry hymnal shooting light. On the back of the album the candles are lit again and the vulture is flying away towards a new moon, new beginning.”

Machine Head, Prophets Of Rage, Green Day, Etc. Members Speak Out Against Racism In The Wake Of Charlottesville, VA Protests

After the appalling events that took place in Charlottesville, VA, many musicians have decided to come forward to speak out against racism. Among them are members of Machine Head, Prophets Of Rage, Green Day, etc. You can read their comments below:

Robb Flynn (Machine Head) shared the following:

Prophets Rage’s Tom Morello told Uproxx the following:

“We should be totally pissed off by what happened in Charlottesville and by what our president is saying. He is clearly on the record who he’s representing.”

Chuck D added:

“He knows damn well there’s a contingent out there that he inspired and made rise with the rhetoric he was spinning in his campaign.”

Morello then continued:

“Resistance to injustice happened before Donald Trump, it’ll happen during Donald Trump, and it’ll happen after Donald Trump. So can it get worse? Of course it can get worse.”

“The Nazis and the KKK have unhooded themselves, because they’ve taken off the hoods in the Oval Office, so they feel more comfortable taking off the hoods in the streets.”

Chuck D continued:

“It’s very important that culture and music speaks its loudest as being a voice, because we can’t rely on government. Things don’t fix itself, we gotta make it happen.”

Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) posted the following:

Omaha!! what a show! I love the heartland. nothing makes me feel more inspired than hearing an arena singing together.. so many thoughts today.. my heart feels heavy. I feel like what happened in charlottesville goes beyond the point of anger. it makes me sad and desperate. shocked. I fucking hate racism more than anything. music and social justice have always gone hand and hand with me. we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for "the time they are a changing" .. some people don't agree. the spirit of green day has always been about rising above oppression. and sticking up for what you believe in and singing it at the top of your lungs. we grew up fearing nuclear holocaust because of the cold war. those days are feeling way too relevant these days. these issues are our ugly past.. and now it's coming to haunt us. always resist these doomsday politicians. and in the words of our punk forefathers .. Nazi punks fuck off. if someone tells you to shut up. tell them to fuck off. life is too short to sit on the sidelines and become complacent. apathy is the kiss of death ps. if you think i'm going to stay quiet and about issues that mean something and "stick to music" then i suggest you go to a different instagram where you feel safe

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach shared several posts with a couple available below:

Just came back from a weekend away in the mountains with no social media checking or any of that nonsense because I needed a break. I check a few things and see the disgusting, appalling and continual glorification of the steady decline of the divided states of America. Won't preach about it, but know I will focus all my efforts into creating art that speaks truth, unity and compassion. That being said this song sums up how I feel. If you don't like it take your opinion and cram it where the sun don't shine yah jackass. We are a bunch of divided, manipulated, brainwashed and controlled people. Don't give a shit about right, left, demorepublic nonsense. Stop taking sides and fight the real enemy, the system that manipulates us and causes and perpetuates our division…..In short though this song speaks for the way I feel 100% regardless of who's arguing over what's free speech or whatever crap is being spewed about defending the right of some one to practice hateful opinions. I am a very tolerant man, but I draw the line when it comes to certain things. I'm more of a peaceful Anarchist at heart but racism and any bigoted behavior makes me see red. Smash politricks, smash the system and most of all #nazipunksfuckoff thank you #DeadKennedys and @punkerstv 🔥🔥🔥 🏴✌🏼

Here is my facial response ⬆️to those few special people who want to discuss and argue about about: "how racism isn't as bad as it's made out to be", nonsense politicks, people who "over react" when it comes to Nazi & white power hate groups. REALLY?! I'm not a violent man (for the most part) I write about peace & equality!!! Dude seriously have you ever read my lyrics? Do you not know I'm hardcore anti racist & have been fighting for equal rights since I started writing?! Do you not know I'm married to a dark skinned Dominican woman for 17 years?! I was raised in a very racially mixed environment with people of all colors and backgrounds that I love and would take a bullet for! I'm not picking a side in whatever left/right bullshit your on about. I'm not in any way a part of any extreme liberal, conservative or whatever short sighted group you think I'm aligned with. I am a man who is passionately opposed to any hate group, any one who takes away rights of anyone to love, serve, marry or make a decent living in this damn country regardless of social status, race, sex, religion, sexual preference and gender identity! It's not a difficult concept people! Politicians and religious beliefs should not dictate how or when these rights are given or taken. In a perfect world we all co exists peacefully, but we all know that ain't happening! So in the meantime I will speak my mind, post what I want and say what I want to say peacefully (and if I choose with out comment from anyone). I wish we weren't in the place we are in, in this country or hell in the world…but we are. Please know this, I DONT CARE about the puppets that we call politicians, I saw through that hoax when I was a kid. They are pawns nothing more & yes they can stir us up and make unfair ridiculous laws. Just know I base all of my convictions & concerns off of what I know and what I try to understand when it comes to empathy & sympathy for others not a political agenda! If you are coming at me to have a conflict you are choosing the wrong person. Be you, believe what you will, but when you approach me with it I have every right to shut you down, oppose you and vehemently disagree! This is my page ✌🏼

Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) also shared the following:

James Hetfield referenced equality during Metallica’s Edmonton, Alberta show as well:

“Metallica doesn’t give a shit, all right? We don’t give a shit about the differences, okay? We care about the similarities. So the fact that you’re here — we don’t care who you voted for, what you do or don’t eat, we don’t care what color your skin is, what you do for a job. We don’t care what you’ve done in the past. What we do care about is the fact that we’re all together here, celebrating life with music. So for me, you are Metallica family. All are welcome. Are you with us?”

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Announce 2017 U.S. Tour

Trans-Siberian Orchestra have announced a massive tour for the Christmas season. The band are calling it the “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” tour, and are planning to make it a “one-of-a-kind audio-visual experience.” The trek will contain two separate touring groups, who will be honoring their late founder Paul O’Neill, who passed away in April.
