David Draiman Reveals More About Side Project, New Shinedown Out Today — Angel’s Rock Report
After spending the past few months working on a new album, Buckcherry will be returning to the road next month. Their tour starts on April 21st in San Antonio, Texas and hits 16 cities before wrapping up on June 2nd in Franklin, Ohio.
Disturbed frontman David Draiman has Tweeted more details about his upcoming side project. Draiman says it’s industrial sounding, but definitely not dubstep like Korn‘s last album. He explains, “Industrial pre-dates dubstep… In other words, it is at all times a guitar-driven sound.”
Draiman has also revealed that he’s working with ex-Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo on the project.
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says he has finished treatment for early stages of lymphoma. Writing on his website he says, “I’ve had the last dose of chemotherapy, so hopefully my body will start to get back to normal soon. The steroids were the [worst]. I’ve now got three weeks of radiotherapy coming up which I’m told can be very tiring, so we’ll see.”
He says despite the treatments, he, Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler “managed to work most days and have some great new tracks” for the original Sabbath’s first studio album in 33 years.
However, because of the treatments, Sabbath has put their reunion tour on hold with the exception of one U.K. date, June 10th at the Download Festival in Derby, England, and one possible U.S. date in August
