With their second album, Nox Aeris, hitting stores tomorrow, Janus will return to the road following Wednesday's hometown release party show at the Cubby Bear in Chicago. They'll play a few nearby gigs this month, then hook up with Cavo on April 7th in Battle Creek, Michigan for a jaunt that will run almost all the way up to a May 25th appearance at the Rocklahoma festival.

A man in Tampa, Florida is staring down the barrel of a major lawsuit after being accused of selling counterfeit Red Hot Chili Peppers T-shirts. The company the Chilis have licensed to sell their tees, Bravado International, filed suit last week against Mike Smith, according to TMZ. Bravado claims that not only is Smith infringing on the company's rights, his inferior-quality shirts will harm its reputation, since customers think they're getting the real thing.

Bravado is asking that Smith's stash be destroyed, plus unspecified damages.

"Biggest Fan", the first single from Sevendust spin-off group Call Me No One, is streaming now at Loudwire.com. A debut album, Last Parade, will be out June 5th.
