Angel’s Rock Report–Thursday
Hear this morning’s Rock Report here
Stone Temple Pilots have axed the last four dates on their summer tour after Scott Weiland was diagnosed with “inflamed vocal cords.” The band initially canceled Tuesday’s show in Cincinnati, but after consulting with doctors, Weiland decided that the other shows could not go on. His physician issued a statement, saying, “With such a heavy concert schedule and vocal activity, we determined that Mr. Weiland could potentially run the risk of a vocal hemorrhage or suffer permanent damage, hence putting him on complete vocal rest.”
I always believed all Scott really needed was a nap…
Seether frontman Shaun Morgan (I think I called him Shaun Murphy on the air this morning, totally by bad) says “there’s not much of camaraderie thing going on” between his band and the other groups on the Uproar Festival tour. He tells YoungHollywood.com that “This is one of those tours where we don’t really know anybody…I mean, we’ve hung out with a couple of the other bands, but it’s not really the high-five-in-the-hallway type of tour.”
Uproar, which also features Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Bullet for My Valentine and Escape the Fate on the main stage, pulls into the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania tomorrow.
Told you about FFDP’s rad new video for “Under and Over It” but did I mention “Back for More,” off their upcoming American Capitalist album, is featured in the new Madden 2012 football video game? The album comes out October 11th, but the game is already in stores.
Former Breaking Benjamin drummer Chad Szeliga has stepped in as the permanent drummer for Black Label Society. Will Hunt left the band earlier this year to rejoin Evanescence.
