Smile Empty Soul is taking over Sunshine Studios Live on Monday. If you missed my interview with Sean Danielson, the lead singer of Smile Empty Soul, you can check it out now. We talk about the upcoming Shapeshifter release, Wayne Static’s final tours, why the band might only release EP’s from here on out and more!
On this snowy Hump Day we’ve been giving away tickets for the Smile Empty Soul show this coming Monday, March 28th, at Sunshine Studios Live. Later in the evening I will be talking to Smile Empty Soul lead singer Sean Danielsen. In the meantime here is a cover of Nirvana’s Aneurysm to tide you over until the concert gets here. This track was released as a bonus on the “Groupees” version of the album Anxiety. I think Sean does a killer job getting his voice so close to Kurt’s in this version. Check it out.
Last week I spoke to Kimberly and Junior of One-Eyed Doll and Alexia of Eyes Set to Kill before their Sunshine Studios Live show last weekend. If you missed those interviews you can check them out below.
On Record Store Day, April 16th, Metallica is releasing the limited edition album Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica!. The album is a live recording from a show at the Bataclan in Paris from 2003. That venue name probably sounds familiar as it was the location of the terrorist attack last year when the Eagles of Death Metal were playing a show. The profits for the new Metallica album will be donated to victims of the attack. Check out the live version of Fade to Black below and then head out on Record Store Day to score your copy of the album.
Maybe you caught the lyric video for Well, Everybody’s F’ing in a UFO that I posted a few weeks ago. The official video for that tune is now out and still very unsuitable for work. Warning – lots of F bombs and alien penis.
The Butcher Babies are headed to Sunshine Studios Live this Friday night for the 8th anniversary of the local venue. So tonight I saw we Hump The Covers Off with the lovely ladies from Butcher Babies and pull a track off their 2014 covers EP, Uncovered. All five of the tracks on that EP kick ass, so it was hard narrowing down my choice to just one track. In the end their cover of the Suicidal Tendencies tune Don’t Give A F*ck was too good to pass up. The original version can be found on the ’94 album Suicidal For Life. Clocking in at 2 minutes and 22 seconds this track will let you wanting more, but they don’t give a f*ck.
Shinedown takes over the City Auditorium this Sunday, and to celebrate tonight we Hump The Covers Off with a tune that is not only their most famous cover, but possibly one of their most famous songs, the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic Simple Man. Throw your lighter in the air and come hang with us for a killer concert this Sunday.
Bombastic. Outrageous. Hair. Just three of the small handful of words used to describe Steel Panther. Catch them tomorrow night at the Fillmore in Denver, and to get you ready here is a cover of the Journey anthem Don’t Stop Believin’. They’ve never stopped believin’ in the 80’s and neither should you.
Rob Zombie recently released the single Well, Everybody’s F*cking in a UFO off the upcoming album The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser which comes out at the end of April. The song is crazy and the frenetic style in which Zombie sings makes it a little difficult to tell what exactly he is saying. Here comes a lyric video for the song, to the rescue! WARNING: The song is un-edited for language and the video itself contains material that could be considered objectionable if you’re watching it around the office (just not the Kilo offices, it’s cool here). Dig it!
