Uproar Festival Announced for Post Falls, Corey Taylor Releasing Two Stone Sour Albums & a Slipknot ‘Best Of’ — Angel’s Rock Report
Stone Sour have decided to break their new double album into two parts. Singer Corey Taylor made the announcement via Twitter, saying the album is titled House of Gold and Bones. Part one will be released in October with part two due out in 2013, and each will contain 12 new tracks. Taylor also revealed that there will be a comic book tie-in to the album once “I lock in the company who will help me put it together.”
Slipknot‘s first ever best-of compilation, Antennas to Hell, will hit stores July 24th. The 19-track release includes a mix of their best-known songs as well as a couple of live cuts and re-mixes. The two-disc version of the package features a live album called (sic)nesses: Live at the Download Festival, 2009.
The promoters of the Uproar Festival have announced the dates for the tour. It kicks off on August 17th in Kansas City, Missouri and hits 30 cities before wrapping up on September 30th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Shinedown and Godsmack headline the tour, with Staind, Papa Roach and Adelita’s Way rounding out the main stage. The second stage features P.O.D., Deuce, Redlight King, Thousand Foot Krutch and more.
They’ll hit Post Falls, Idaho (almost to Spokane) on Friday, September 21 and The Gorge the next night.
Tickets for most of the shows go on sale Friday.
Seether have announced plans for a fall headlining tour. The Triple Threat Tour starts September 20th in Boston and runs for a month before it wraps up October 20th in Detroit. The other bands on the bill are also trios — Sick Puppies and Kyng.
Slash will receive the 2473rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 10th. It should be one of the more interesting inductions, since the guest speakers will be controversial Hollywood figures Robert Evans and Charlie Sheen. In another departure from typical Walk of Fame protocol, Slash and singer Myles Kennedy will perform a private acoustic set and do a Q&A session at the Hollywood Hard Rock Cafe following the ceremony.
Dave Grohl joined a panel of the producers and creative team behind this February’s 54th annual Grammy Awards telecast in a discussion following a screening of A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On last night at the Television Academy’s North Hollywood headquarters. The 26-minute documentary — created as part of a campaign to get the show considered for an Emmy Award — takes us behind the scenes as producers made last minute changes to the show following the news of Whitney Houston‘s death the day before the show and a late decision by Paul McCartney to change the song he was playing and to bring in Grohl, Joe Walsh and Bruce Springsteen to perform with him.
Starting today, A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On can be viewed at www.grammy.com/grammysbehindthescenes. It’s also expected to become a fixture at L.A.’s Grammy Museum.
