Jetboy made their 2nd appearance at the M3 Festival, and much like last year, the band put on one kick ass show. This year they opened up the festival on the main stage. They played all of their new tunes from their recently released EP, Off Your Rocker, including “Going Down Above the Clouds”, “Dogs Gotta Roam”, “Perfectly Wrong”, and several of their classics including “Heavy Chevy”, “High Gear”, “Evil”, and “Feel the Shake”. After the show, I met up with the Jetboy in the VIP Tent, and got to meet the band’s newest members, Jesse Mendez, and Jes Reckless, as well as Mickey Finn, Fernie Rod, and Billy Rowe.
Jetboy is a great band live. If you missed them at the festival, you missed out on a great show. They were easily one of the best bands at M3. Jetboy doesn’t get to the east coast much, so you have to take advantage of the times they are here! Their next festival appearance will be at the Midwest Rock Festival in Wichita, Kansas on Saturday July 24th, with the bands Y&T, Black N’ Blue, XYZ, Twisted Sister, Winger, Bang Tango, Icarus Witch, Toxin, and Kix.

Megadeth‘s new track called “Sudden Death”, which will serve as the finger-busting finale to the forthcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock game can now be heard in its entirety online. Dave Mustaine tells RollingStone.com the track is brutal, and the song has a “funky kind of polyrhythm to it” which will make it even more difficult for the Guitar Hero elite. “Just the sheer repetitiveness of it can blow people’s minds”. Listen to “Sudden Death” in IGN Entertainment‘s live demo of the game below.
The Angels of Babylon’s debut album “Kingdom of Evil” featuring Megadeth’s David Ellefson will be released in the United States on July 27th by Burnhill Union Records!!!!The U.S. version will include all new artwork and two (2) brand new bonus songs!
