Sound And Fury Announce Live Dates With Less Than Jake and Airbourne
REJECT ALL THINGS POP FOR REAL, RAMPAGING, ROCK ON
DEBUT ALBUM, “SOUND AND FURY” OUT NOW!
Toronto’s high powered rock n’ roll powerhouse Sound & Fury have announced more dates with Australian rockers Airbourne, including a full European tour that will make stops in the UK, France Germany and Sweden. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of the band’s self-titled debut, which hit stores via Rebel Youth Records/MRI-RED Distribution and just prior to the band taking their in-your-face live show on a US tour with Goldfinger and Less Than Jake.
Sound and Fury, which also includes guitarists Daz and Griffin, bassist John Kerns, and drummer Chris Avalos, is all about power chords, no-bullshit rock ‘n roll, and total sonic assault, as evidenced by the lead-off turbo-charged single and video from ‘Sound and Fury,’ “18.” To view the video for “18″ online, go to http://www.soundandfury.com/rebelyouth/videos.htm. The Sammy Ray Welch-directed video shoot for “18″ recently took place in an abandoned police station in Toronto, and featured lighting design input from A.J. Pen, who is known for his work with Linkin Park.
The band has also announced they will be giving away five pairs of tickets to each show for fans who join the Sound & Fury street-team at www.rebelyouth.com. Fans are encouraged to join the street-team to qualify for tickets, merchandise and a customized Guitar Hero game.
In addition to perfectly capturing their raw power on album, Sound and Fury has been gaining fans by the truckload by also opening up for Canada’s leading pop-punk band, Sum 41, throughout the great white north (as well as the U.K.). The group plays stripped down straight up rock n’ roll and was praised by PunkTV.ca for “combining iconoclastic AC/DC thunder, Misfits brooding, the raw impetuousness of the Pistols and the charismatic anthemic song styling’s of the Ramones.”
That said, the forthcoming Sound and Fury-Airbourne pairing is bound to be one wicked rock n’ roll party!

CHAVIS RECORDS is thrilled to announce the signing of DC4 featuring Jeff Duncan (Armored Saint, Odin), Rowan Robertson (Dio), Shawn Duncan (Odin), and Matt Duncan. EXPLODE, the latest effort from DC4 saw a very limited release by the band earlier this year and now with an all new package design, and new artwork on the inside, will see a full scale release later this year. EXPLODE was produced by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning).
DC4 is Jeff on vocals and guitar, Rowan on guitar, Matt on bass/vocals and Shawn on drums.
Jeff Duncan and Shawn Duncan of Odin fame and notable for their appearances in The Decline Of Western Civilization – The Metal Years, formed DC4 with brother Matt Duncan in 1995 and released their debut E.P. Mood Swings produced by Joe Floyd (Bruce Dickinson, Warrior). In 2001 DC4 released Volume One which was produced by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning). With Rowan Robertson most notably for his dynamic guitar wizardry on Dio’s ‘Lock Up The Wolves’, joining the ranks in 2006, DC4 is now a combustible powerhouse of modern classic hard rock standing on its own with a definitive and uncompromised sound showcasing the highly skilled musical talent and song writing of the members that is DC4.
Plans are in the works for DC4 to hit the road in support of EXPLODE and additional details on the release date will soon be announced.
A7X to release rarities and live material.
Avenged Sevenfold have announced details of a special CD/DVD package to be released later on in the year.
Titled, ‘Live In The LBC And Diamonds In The Rough’, the tracklisting for the DVD portion of the package runs as follows:

The CD will concentrate on the bands unreleased and rare performances, including some of the bands famed cover versions:

The package will be relased on September 8th.

Bang Tango, L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat came to Louisville’s Expo Five Sunday Night (7/20/08). To read about Bang Tango’s opening set, click here. To read about L.A. Guns (featuring Tracii Guns) click here.
Faster Pussycat was the headlining act last Sunday Night. They opened the show, with the title cut off of their new CD, The Power and the Gloryhole. The rest of the set had the following tunes in no certain order:
House of Pain, Cathouse, Bathroom Wall, Babylon, Porn Star, Sex Drugs & Rock-N-Roll, When There’s A Whip There’s A Way.
Taime Downe’s vocals still sound the same after all of these years. It has been an extremely long time since I have seen this band. I don’t recall Taime chain smoking through every song he performs. For goodness sakes, put the cancer sticks away for an hour Taime!
Taime is the only original member left in Faster Pussycat. In fact, a couple of his band members, played earlier in the night. L.A. Guns drummer Chad Stewart was behind the skins, and Bang Tango guitarist, Michael Thomas handled the lead guitar. The rest of the band was fleshed out by Taime’s Newlydead bandmates, guitarist Xristian Simon, and Danny Nordahl on bass.
I must admit that I am not a very big fan of the latest Faster Pussycat CD, The Power and The Gloryhole. I was amazed that a lot of the new songs sound better live, than they do on the CD. I may have to revisit that CD, and update my original review.
Faster Pussycat sounded pretty good on Sunday Night. My only complaint is that their set was way too short. I would have liked to have heard 4 or 5 more tunes by Taime and company.
All three bands were better than I expected them to be. L.A. Guns stole the show, but Bang Tango and Faster Pussycat were still worth seeing. If you are a fan of these bands, be sure to check them out on one of their remaining dates. I hope you enjoy the Faster Pussycat videos below!
