FILTER is back.
After a five-year hiatus and a successful run with Army of Anyone, RICHARD PATRICK has reclaimed his legacy with FILTER for ANTHEMS FOR THE DAMNED, due out this May.
Produced by Josh Abraham (Slayer, 30 Seconds to Mars, Velvet Revolver, Staind, Courtney Love), PATRICK calls ANTHEMS FOR THE DAMNED his “howl in the night,” a harsh indictment of civilization that doesn’t exclude himself from its vision of a world falling apart.
The album’s first single “Soldiers of Misfortune” will be released later this month. PATRICK describes the soaring anthem–with its U2/Bowie flavor and stacked backdrop of buzzing electric guitars–as a “sardonic anti-war/pro-troops song.” The first-person narrative was inspired by a letter from a FILTER fan who had enlisted in the Army reserves to get his college tuition paid; in his final year of college, he was shipped off to Iraq where he died from a rocket attack and small arms fire after just a few days of duty.
FILTER will preview tracks from ANTHEMS FOR THE DAMNED alongside such FILTER classics as “Hey Man, Nice Shot,” “Take a Picture” and others when they hit the road for special California club shows next month. The band will follow the shows with additional U.S. shows just prior to the album’s release, mixing headlining shows, festival appearances and radio shows.
ANTHEMS FOR THE DAMNED features such collaborators as guitarist/songwriter John 5, guitarist Wes Borland and drummer Josh Freese and marks FILTER’s first release in five years since The Amalgamut. Pointed and passionate, the new album traces PATRICK’s own anger and shame with the state of things, from the intense alternative industrial blast of “The Take,” “What’s Next” and “Hatred is Contagious,” the ultimate resignation of “Kill the Day” and “Lie After Lie” to the tentative hope expressed by “Only You” and the ambient soundscape of the closing “Can Stop This.”

FOR WHITESNAKE FANS
WEDNESDAY 16th January
GENERAL TICKETS GO ON SALE
Friday 18th January
Two of theWorlds greatest arena rock bands, are set to play a series of co-headline shows across the UK in summer of 2008. This is the ultimateline up for many a rock fan and be sure this tour is going to sellfast, so get your skates on……
A bit about the bands………
Def Leppard remain one of the world’s biggest and most successful live acts, and 2007 was another monumental year the band, playing a near sold out 50 date arena tour across the USA. Starting June 2007 and ending in September 2007, the group’s summer concert tour became a must-see phenomenon – .regularly selling out 15,000 to 20,000 capacity arenas! The show featured a stunning production and light show and saw Def Leppard using a ramp for the first time – the show featuring an acoustic in addition to Def Leppard’s huge catalogue of global hits. Def Leppard remain amongst the most successful UK bands in the USA still.
Def Leppard are one of only five rock groups who can claim two separate original 10 million plus selling albums in the US. The others are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen.
2007 was also the 20th anniversary of Def Leppard’s legendary “Hysteria” album. An album summed up by Mojo magazine in Sept 2007 as “Hard rock’s equivalent of “Thriller””.
Def Leppard are also set to release a brand new studio album in mid 2008. The album will see the band adding to their incredible legacy and promises the inclusion of a very special collaboration.
Having sold over 65 million albums worldwide since the Def Leppard debut release in 1980 and proved themselves one of rock music’s hardest working and consistently powerful live bands (playing to over 50 million fans in the last 15 years alone), these dates are set to be a highlight of the summer.
Legendary front man David Coverdale is bringing Whitesnake back on the road in 2008 to celebrate the band’s 30th Anniversary with a vengeance…April 2008 will see the release of the first new Whitesnake studio album in over 10 years…’Good To Be Bad’ featuring 11 new, slamming Whitesnake songs, guaranteed to take their place alongside their better known multi-million selling catalogue.
“It’s about time we had new songs to present to the Whitesnake Choir…This album has all the elements I enjoy about Whitesnake & more…“ says Coverdale.
‘Good To Be Bad’ is the most recent band offering, along with their in-concert greatest hits CD… ‘Live In The Shadow Of The Blues’ & ‘Live In The Still Of The Night’…voted Best DVD of 2006 by the readers of Classic Rock magazine.
With their blend of hard rock, soul, blues, and balladry…a healthy dose of priapic posturing & good time fun, Whitesnake brings a welcome, positive energy to the current musical climate.
From 1973 to 1976 Coverdale was the lead singer in Deep Purple, one of the biggest bands in the world. A year after leaving, he formed Whitesnake in late 1977 as a blues-based, melodic rock band to tour & promote his solo records ‘Whitesnake’ & ‘Northwinds’.
The band then took on a life & an identity of its own, attracting not only the supporters from Deep Purple, but, a whole new audience hungry for the blues, soul & good time rock Whitesnake offered.
In the early 90’s Coverdale spent 3 years working with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, on the rock classic ‘Coverdale Page’ album, before retiring from the music business for several years.
The internationally renowned, multi-platinum band will be featuring songs from David Coverdale’s colourful career…
This is an opportunity to experience the ultimate line-up & celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Whitesnake…
Doug Aldrich on guitar…Reb Beach on guitar…Timothy Drury on keyboards… Uriah Duffy on bass…Chris Frazier on drums…& of course, the inimitable David Coverdale on vocals…
“I can’t wait to get back on stage…after being in the studio for most of 2007 I am most definitely ready to let off some steam…The front row should definitely be prepared!” says Coverdale
You have been warned!!!
Special Guests on the tour are the great ‘Black Stone Cherry’ who hail from the USA and have just won Best New Band at the Classic Rock awards.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE ON 2008′S “TASTE OF CHAOS” NORTH AMERICAN TREK
Tour Dates in Support of the Band’s “Scream Aim Fire,” Out January 29
Los Angeles, CA – December 19, 2007 — With the title track from their upcoming album, “Scream Aim Fire,” already blazing at Rock Radio, the Welsh metal-core band BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE announces that they will join forces with Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu on the Main Stage for “Taste of Chaos,” 2008. The tour kicks off Friday, February 29 in Denver, CO, and will play more than 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada through to late April. The UK’s Kerrang! magazine recently cited a Bullet show at London’s Brixton Academy as one of the “100 Greatest Gigs Ever,” so U.S. fans should be in for a string of sensational performances.
The “Taste of Chaos” dates will be the first North American tour for Bullet For My Valentine since early 2007 when they sold out their first headline tour this side of “the Pond.” Just prior to “Taste of Chaos,” B4MV will play three weeks-worth of headline dates in the UK and Europe, including a kick-off concert in their native Wales.
Bullet For My Valentine – Matthew “Matt” Tuck/vocals, Michael “Padge” Paget/Guitar, Michael “Moose” Thomas/drums, and Jason “Jay” James/Bass – saw their 2006 debut album, “The Poison” – dubbed “One of the finest debut albums in rock history” by a major UK daily – sail past the million sales mark, selling 350,000 in the U.S. alone.
“Scream Aim Fire” was produced by Colin Richardson (Machinehead, Funeral For A Friend) who also produced “The Poison,” and was recorded at Sonic Ranch near El Paso, TX earlier this year. The eleven new songs are, according to frontman Tuck, “really melodic heavy metal…catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals, with the music being very in-your-face and heavy…it’s a lot more uptempo [than 'The Poison'], a lot more aggressive.” Still a week away from the official U.S. radio “add” date, the album’s title track has been the #1 Most Added track at CMJ’s Loud Rock chart, and #1 Most Added at FMQB’s Metal Detector chart.
With the Canadian dates to be announced in January, the confirmed itinerary for Bullet For My Valentine on the 2008 “Taste of Chaos” tour is as follows:

Hard rock veterans Tesla return to the road in February for another round of dates supporting their most recent album, June’s “Real to Reel.”
The group, which revealed in September it would be returning to the studio to put together a new album for 2008, will kick things off Feb. 1 in Seattle, with 20 cities on the itinerary. All dates for the tour, which runs to a close in early March, are shown below.
The band is coming off something of a resurgent year, having completed its first world tour in 16 years this fall with dates in Australia, Japan and Europe. The band also toured extensively in the US this summer, when fans attending the band’s shows were given an early opportunity to purchase the second volume of “Real to Reel,” which was initially only available in single-CD format.
The two volumes of “Real to Reel” discs feature covers of “songs that inspired us back in the day when we first heard them in the ’70s,” singer Jeff Keith said in a press release. “We originally had a large list of songs in mind for the record, and we had a lot of fun picking out the ones that ultimately made it onto the album. Making music is all about feeding off of your inspirations and putting your own touches to it. We feel we’ve accomplished this to the highest extent.”
Artists given the cover treatment on Tesla’s new album include The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and others.
The album is Tesla’s first since once again parting ways with original member Tommy Skeotch, who was replaced last year on tour and in the studio with guitarist Dave Rude.
Last month, the band released the iTunes-exclusive “A Peace of Time,” a seven-song digital EP that includes covers of songs by Bread, The Climax Blues Band and Ten Years After, as well as the band’s version of the traditional holiday classic “Silent Night.”

Here is a live video taken from a show in September. Enjoy!
The XXXmas tour featuring The Antidivision, Jetboy and Stephen Pearcy rolled into Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday Night. This concert was held at Whiskey Dick’s bar, which is a small club, but an intimate setting to catch bands live.
When I first found about this show, I was in disbelief that Jetboy was playing in Ohio. Their appearances here have been rare, so this show was one that I could not miss. Stephen Pearcy was a bonus, especially since I have seen him with RATT twice in 2007.
The Antidivision took the stage shortly after 9 PM. At the time the band started, their was only about 50 people in the club, and the small crowd had a very lackluster response to the bands’ tunes. I must admit that the band didn’t have much stage presence, and I wasn’t seeing a lot of energy in their performance. It probably didn’t help that no one in the audience new their songs. The band pulled a cover off of Suffergette City that was actually pretty good, but by then it was too late. People were ready for Pearcy to play. I can imagine that their 13 hour drive from Denver had them quite exhausted, and probably effected their show somewhat. Stephen Pearcy recently signed the band to his Top Fuel Records label, so this could have just been an off night for this young band. Their tunes on their myspace page show promise( check out the tune Let Yourself Go). This will be a band that I will be keeping my eye on in the future.
Jetboy took the stage around 10 P.M. and played a jaw dropping set, that included several tunes off of their releases Feel the Shake, and Damned Nation as well as a very cool cover of the Johnny Cash tune Folsom Prison Blues. I expected Jetboy to be good, but this high energy performance was well beyond my expectations. The crowd swelled (if you can call it that) to 100 people, and most of them flew to the stage like moths to a flame.
Lead guitarist Fernie Rod was completely off the hook. The small crowd didn’t deter his performance one bit. He played as if there were 1000 people in the club. The mighty mohawked, Mickey Finn proved to be one dynamic front man. I was equally impressed with Billy Rowe’s rhythm and slide guitar playing. The newest members of Jetboy Michael Butler (bass) and Jeff Moscone(drums) are solid additions to the band. Both musicians add their own spark to Jetboy electric live show.
How these guys are still virtually unknown is mind-boggling to me! This show made is clear to me, that Jetboy is back, and they are going to rock everyone along the way. The band is currently working on new tunes for a 2008 release. Don’t miss out on this show if they come to your town! Be sure to check out the live Jetboy videos below!
The surprise of the night, was RATT front man, Stephen Pearcy. I have seen RATT twice in 2007, and both times I felt that Pearcy’s voice wasn’t what it used to be. Amazingly, on this Tuesday evening, Pearcy sounded better than he has in a long time. His five piece band, were pulling off RATT tunes with ease, and sounded great. Something else that also surprise me, was the fact that The Antidivision’s frontman Erik Ferentinos was playing lead guitar for Pearcy’s backup band, and was pulling off those amazing DiMartini guitar licks like a pro. Obviously, he is a musician with a lot to prove.
Pearcy’s voice wasn’t perfect by any means, but it was far better on Tuesday night than any other time that I saw him sing in 2007. I was very glad that I stayed for the set that consisted mostly of Ratt tunes, but also included a few covers. (Judas Priest’s You Got Another Thing Coming and, Aerosmith’s Draw The Line to name a couple of them.)
Pearcy also performed a new tune that will be on his new solo disc due in 2008, called You’re A Lot Like Me which is captured in one of the videos below.
I am sure that the weather report with the expected 2 – 4 inches of snowfall kept a lot of Columbus rock fans away from this gig. They missed one hell of a show.
A special shout goes out to Kenny Ozz from Drugstore Valentine, who is a huge supporter of glam metal in the Ohio Tri-State Area. I didn’t expect to run into anyone I knew in Columbus, and was quite surprised to find some familiar faces in the crowd.
Don’t miss the XXXmas tour if it hits your town…there are a few dates left in December.

Onesidezero has announced they have parted ways with guitarist Levon Sultanian. A statement from the group reads as follows:
“We have decided to part ways with Levon due to creative and personal differences,” says frontman Jasan Radford. “The past 11 years that Levon and I played together were some of the best times and some of the hardest, but as time goes on sometimes things change and you grow apart. He will be missed, but we will continue and I see Onesidezero having a strong and positive 2008. A special thanks to everyone for supporting Onesidezero.”
The band will continue to support their recently released, self-titled, sophomore album with short headlining tour of the West Coast to round out the year, including a spot on 104.7 The Edge’s “Not So Silent Night” show with Atreyu, Five Finger Death Punch and Fair To Midland. Onesidezero will kick off 2008 with a European tour alongside ADEMA and RE:IGNITION.
Onesidezero’s Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Stabbing Westward, Taproot) produced sophomore album was released through Corporate Punishment Records. The album is the long awaited follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2001 debut “Is This Room Getting Smaller”, which saw the group tour with the likes of Incubus, 311, Static-X, and Soul fly. The album’s first single, “My Confession”, has been picking up steam at radio with the track receiving steady rotation on XM Radio’s Squizz channel and Los Angeles based KROQ.

Frehley is aiming for an early 2008 release date for his new solo album. The guitarist — who recently celebrated one year of sobriety after relapsing during the summer of 2006 — has finished recording around 10 new songs for the effort but is looking to lay down two or three more in the next couple of months in order to make the CD “really special,” he revealed during an appearance on the “Friday Night Rocks” radio show.
Ace‘s new album was reportedly recorded with a trio of Ace, Anton Fig on drums and new bassist Anthony Esposito (LYNCH MOB).

Tracii Guns has issued the following statement:
“It has come to my attention that my old band mates Phil Lewis and Steve Riley are desperately trying to wage a campaign to have LA Guns shows cancelled. Although it is not an ideal situation, I think that by now everyone is aware that there are two versions of LA Guns performing out on the road. I have repeatedly tried to responsibly fix the situation, but obviously some old wounds never heal – mine included. Rather than insist on the other version of LA Guns immediately cease all activities, I have for whatever reason allowed them to continue to exist for the simple reason that I think the world is big enough for both of us. I also think that they, like all of us, have a right to make a living.
Now I have learned that Phil has made it a personal goal to basically attack the version of LA Guns that features me. They have sent false statements to several promoters saying that I am not performing with the ‘real’ LA Guns, etc. Whichever version of LA Guns the fans favor, I would hope that everyone knows that this is completely ridiculous. With all due respect to their contributions to LA Guns history, Phil and Steve were not even the original members of the band. Now they have the balls to say that I am not the ‘real’ version of LA Guns? I guess that is what I get for trying to mind my own business and be a good guy.
We have played all over the world this year to great crowds including Trinidad, Argentina, two tours of Europe, three US tours, Korea, and now we are looking forward to playing in 2008 all over and will start the new year on a west coast run with SKID ROW.”
POLKADOT CADAVER (EX-DOG FASHION DISCO) SCHEDULES
CD RELEASE PERFORMANCES IN CLEVELAND AND BALTIMORE
DEBUT ALBUM “PURGATORY DANCE PARTY” IN STORES NOVEMBER 27TH, 2007 ON ROTTEN RECORDS, NEW TRACKS POSTED ONLINE
Baltimore based Polkadot Cadaver, featuring Todd Smith, Jasan Stepp and John Ensminger formerly of Dog Fashion Disco, have announced CD release performances in Cleveland, OH on November 30th and December 1st, 2007 in Baltimore, MD.
The members of Polkadot Cadaver cut their teeth recording and touring relentlessly in avant-garde alt-metal act Dog Fashion Disco. During the near decade the group spent in Dog Fashion Disco. Smith and his merry band of misfits would amass a loyal underground following of fans (dubbed the “mushroom cult”) through countless tours with the likes of Slayer, Mindless Self Indulgence, Nothingface and Lacuna Coil. Although Dog Fashion Disco never achieved commercial success, their musical legacy gained the respect of musical contemporaries like Serj Tankian of System of a Down (who made a guest appearance on Anarchists of Good Taste), Mushroomhead and American Head Charge, while the group’s music lives on through the internet and continues to create new members of the “mushroom cult” long after the band’s demise.
“We came to a stand still with Dog Fashion Disco,” says Smith about the demise of his former outfit. “We weren’t making any money, but we were touring non-stop and it seemed like we were chasing our tail.”
While Smith and company may have become sick of living the vagabond lifestyle that a touring metal band requires, the thought of giving up music entirely never even crossed their minds. Within mere months of their former outfit’s demise the group had created a new group, Polkadot Cadaver to unleash their schizophrenic musical madness.
“Jasan and I decided to start a studio band and Polkadot Cadaver started as shells of songs on Jasan’s computer. After we fleshed out the songs we pitched it to Rotten Records, because we loved how they handled the last Dog Fashion Disco album,” says Smith about the formation of the group.
“They immediately got behind us and as soon as we received a recording budget we went to Wrightway Studios to work and complete the record. Polkadot Cadaver is very similar to Dog Fashion Disco stylistically. The songs are still very quirky and different from each other.”
Polkadot Cadaver’s debut album, “Purgatory Dance Party” is slated for release on November 27th, 2007 through Rotten Records. Recorded in the bowels of Baltimore with producer Steven Wright (Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, SR-71), Polkadot Cadaver’s debut album picks up right where Dog Fashion Disco left off. Schizophrenic, ambitious and completely insane, Polkadot Cadaver removes musical barriers to create their own brand of unique musical lunacy. The group has currently uploaded four songs from their forthcoming debut album at the following location www.myspace.com/polkadotcadaver
Polkadot Cadaver Upcoming Shows:
Nov 30 2007 Cleveland, Ohio @ Peabody’s
Dec 01 2007 Baltimore, Maryland @ Sonar

Another Animal and Alter Bridge came to Cincinnati Wednesday Night. A late work night kept me from getting to the show on time, and I missed Another Animal all together! I was looking forward to seeing the band featuring Whitfield Crane on vocals. I have listened to Another Animal and Alter Bridge quite a bit as of late, and was also interested in seeing what the AB boys had to offer.
I am very impressed with the new Alter Bridge CD, Blackbird, and I am happy to report that band is doing a ton of songs off of the new disc.
I can’t recall the entire list, but the set list included: Before Tomorrow Comes, Brand New Start, Buried Alive, Broken Wings, Coming Home, Blackbird, White Knuckles and the first time the band has every played Break Me Down live.
The band did an Encore with a Led Zeppelin cover of Traveling Riverside Blues and an the songs Rise Today and Open Your Eyes.
I wondered if Myles Kennedy could handle some of the higher pitched vocals live, and let me tell you, this guy is the real deal. He hit every note, and was quite impressive. He is great singer, that is second to very few. Mark Tremonti was kicking everyone’s ass on the lead guitar. I think this guy must have a guitar for every new song that Alter Bridge plays.
Alter Bridge played an incredibly tight set, and had the crowd of 300 people singing along all night. It was a very good live show, and one that I would definitely go see again.
Here is a video so you can see what you are missing!
The band has a ton of dates left on this tour! Don’t miss them if they hit your town!

Montreal based 3 Mile Scream have streamed the group’s debut album, A Prelude To Our Demise, at the following location http://www.altsounds.com/altsounds/bands/3793/playallhi.php
3 Mile Scream‘s debut album was recorded in Montreal under the watchful eye of producer Jean-Francois Dagenais, guitarist for death metal giants Kataklysm. Since the album release, 3 Mile Scream has won over many high profile fans including Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, Unearth’s Trevor Phipps and Arch Enemy’s Michael Amott who described the band as, “Heavy and melodic, great chops.”
3 Mile Scream’s A Prelude To Our Demise, was released by independent powerhouse Corporate Punishment Records. The album is a stunning blend of European metal, melody and machine gun drumming that creates a merciless, brutal sound.
The group has recently announced more tour dates in support of their debut album, including an upcoming October 14th date in Belleville, Ontario where the band has been added as direct support for Thine Eyes Bleed.
“Thine Eyes Bleed are one of the best Canadian metal acts on the scene. We are extremely excited and honored to share the stage with a band of such unrelenting aggression,” says 3 Mile Scream frontman Matt McGa chy. “We are all very excited to hear the new Thine Eyes Bleed material since we were all blown away by their performance at last year’s Unholy Alliance Tour.”
