Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc.) Scores New Film “Red 48”

Ben Weinman (Suicidal Tendencies, The Dillinger Escape Plan) has been recruited to score a new film titled “Red 48.” That movie stars Tyrese Gibson, John Malkovich, and Michael Jai White and The Hollywood Reporter shared the following description of it:

“Gibson will play Kyle Snowden, a troubled former Marine turned child protective service officer who must save an immigrant child from a dangerous criminal who has trapped them and other hostages inside a convenience store. Adding more power to the keg: The store is owned by the Snowden’s stepfather, Sam Safty, being played by Malkovich. White plays Sparks, the Safty’s no-nonsense bodyguard and confidant.”

“Two Minutes To Late Night” commented:

“We got three of New Jersey’s most talented hoagies plus a Connecticut Hatebreed in King Danzig’s Court to assemble to form the punk supergroup you had no idea you needed. This is Max Weinberg, as in Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band/Late Night with Conan O’Brien-fame Max Weinberg playing a goddamn Misfits cover. What an absolute dream.

Anthrax, Butcher Babies, Testament, & Suicidal Tendencies Members Share Quarantine Cover Of KISS’ “C’mon And Love Me”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies), Alex Skolnick (Testament), and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) have shared a quarantine cover of KISS’ “C’mon And Love Me.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“Here is a song we put together to help remember fallen musician and KISS super-fan David Z.

In an industry not always known for its quality of character, Dave Z shone like a bright light in the darkness. With every musical collaboration, from the arenas to the clubs, Dave forged lasting friendships, valued people over pettiness, never held a grudge and approached it all with a playful smile.

This video debuted last night July 14th (3 years from his passing) as part of an elaborate and moving online fundraiser for David Z Foundation, started by Dave’s brother @pauliezofficial. Paulie’s nonprofit organization helps bring music education — which has been discarded from most US school systems — to deserving kids.

Visit David Z Foundation on FB to view the entire event with many great performances and testimonials (5 hrs worth!) and for info on supporting.

While the three of us — Charlie, Alex and Ra — have done several videos of music that’s a bit more complex (RUSH, Dave’s other favorite band), we enjoyed the chance to let loose by covering Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter. ‘C’mon And Love Me’ is a 70’s KISS tune full of swaggering macho male innuendo, but here it gets a feminine makeover, courtesy of our vocalist, the lovely Carla Harvey.

We hope you enjoy this track dedicated to Dave Z, whose KISS fandom was, much like his own personality and musicianship, larger than life.”

Anthrax, Butcher Babies, & Suicidal Tendencies Members Cover Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies), and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) have shared a quarantine cover of Massive Attack‘s “Teardrop.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“I was on tour in the UK/Europe when I got Mezzanine by Massive Attack. I think it was 97/98 and I remember laying in my Bunk and being absorbed by the Music I was hearing. This was different than The Protection Record; It was Darker and the layered instruments created a dense listening experience…this album comes eerily close to giving me an out of body experience

There aren’t a lot of albums that can put me into a deep trance and keep me there for a long time, but this album does that amazingly well. The tracks really take their time to develop, and that mostly results in stunning instrumentals. Teardrop was one of those songs that I wish I’d Wrote, to this day it still gives me goosebumps.

I always wanted to do a “remix” or “my version”. I had the chance during this Quarantine/Stay at home Situation to make that happen. I asked RA and Carla to Help make it happen. The video is not like the normal Quarantine Videos, I wanted it to be Dark and Artsy Farsty ( like an MTV vid).

Carla Knocks it out of the park, she brought that vibe to the song and showed a different level I knew she had. Ra is On Point with the Rumble and groove, He always makes it look so easy.

Once again Thanks to @AndyLagis for the Mix, I know there was a lot to deal with but you Placed it all in the right spots DIma Levanchuk made a great video, not like a standard “quarantine Video”. He took his imagination and went somewhere with it.”

Anthrax, Volbeat, & Suicidal Tendencies Members Join Forces With D.M.C. For RUN-D.M.C. Medley

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax) and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) recently joined forces with Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels for a RUN-D.M.C. medley. You can see footage of that below. The track is also available to download via Bandcamp with proceeds set to go towards MusicUnites.org.

Benante commented:

“I always wanted to do a medley of RUN DMC songs, so back in March I decided to put an arrangement together and asked these amazing people to be a part of it.

How can you do a RUN DMC medley without the KING of ROCK- Darryl McDaniels DMC. I have been a RUN DMC fan from back when I first heard “It’s Like That/Sucker MCs” they had my attention immediately! It’s no secret that our “I’m the Man” song was inspired by RUN DMC and the Beastie boys…that’s how much we loved them.

I asked RA once again because he has the groove and creativity to adapt to any song. I love how he placed a familiar line at the end of the song that Just fit so well. I asked Rob Caggiano because I always loved his style.

I love the way he attacks his guitar and plays the tastiest shit. He throws this great Black metal riff in here that raises the tune to another level. We all came together to create this piece of music that makes US move.

I hope it YOU move! Maybe it inspires you to make music, play your instrument, write lyrics…”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Anthrax & Suicidal Tendencies Members Share Quarantine Cover Of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) have shared a quarantine cover of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.” Benante said the following about that:

“Ra and I always Loved this tune and wanted to do a Remix of it. We added some crunch, some funk, some Groove. We like all different forms of music so if Ya Don’t like anything, keep it to yourself. Thank you to Andy Lagis and Dima levanchuk for Mixing and editing and to Billie Eilish for the Song”

Watch Anthrax, Testament, Suicidal Tendencies, & Crobot Members Cover Rush’s “Red Barchetta” While In Quarantine

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies), and Brandon Yeagley (Crobot) have shared footage of themselves performing Rush’s “Red Barchetta” while quarantining in their individual homes. You can watch that below:

Benante commented:

“Once again, we’ve been completely knocked out by the responses to our video tribute to the one & only RUSH, thank you. This time, we’ve decided to follow up our most recent track (and our first vocal song, ‘Freewill‘) with another one of our favorites, ‘Red Barchetta’.

Sadly, our completion of this video coincides with breaking news of the loss of one of rock’n’roll’s greatest pioneers, Little Richard. On the one hand, it’s difficult to find a more sonically different pair of acts than RUSH and Little Richard. On the other, it’s safe to say (and we’re sure the boys from Toronto would agree) that Little Richard blazed a trail for all of us with a force that perfectly fits the subject of ‘Red Barchetta’ – a high powered sports car from the same time period in which Little Richard was first emerging as an artist. This song is dedicated to him and we hope it brightens up your day.”

Watch Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, & Butcher Babies Members Cover Living Colour’s “Funny Vibe” With Corey Glover

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies), and Henry Flurry (Butcher Babies) have shared a quarantine cover of Living Colour‘s “Funny Vibe,” which they worked on with Corey Glover himself. You can see footage of that below:

Benante commented:

“Well, if you gonna cover a @livingcolourofficial tune one thing is for sure: you better have someone who can sing. So… Why not having Mr. @coreyglover himself?! How cool is that?! I have a history with @livingcolour and this is beyond crazy to me that I get to “play” with Corey.

And even better to do it once again with my “online rhythm section partner” @ra_diaz (is that a thing now?) @suicidaltendencies and our friend @henryflury @butcherbabies
At a time when rock was increasingly looking beyond its own frontiers for inspiration, Living Colour’s #vivid was a genre-mashing stake in the ground, taking hard rock, modern jazz, funk and soul and more and binding them together with an incisive political spirit.

The Amazing musicianship throughout this music was incredible to take in. It was heavy and aggressive, yet improvisational and inventive. There was a groove to it and it was slamming in the assault.

One of my highlights was having @livingcolourofficial join us on Our European tour, it was one of my favorite tours. Night after night I would watch them Improvise and Create Music…it was inspiring. @ripmagazineofficial Lonn Friend @instadude74 Came out on that tour and gave us the cover, things were good.

Here is our Version of “funny Vibe” with a very special Guest @coreyglover I hope we did it justice. #funnyvibe”
