Bullet for My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck has unveiled his new "metal as [bleep]" side project. It's called AxeWound, and it doesn't feature Tuck on lead vocals -- Cancer Bats singer Liam Cormier handles those duties. Tuck tells the BBC, "It's going to be different, not being the main vocalist, but it's something I look forward to, [to] just enjoy being a guitar player and a songwriter."

AxeWound are giving away their debut single, "Post Apocalyptic Party," through their website. A full album is due out this summer.

Sublime With Rome have announced a summer tour that will see them playing many dates with Cypress Hill and Pepper. The jaunt starts July 11th in Pittsburgh and hits 19 cities before wrapping up August 30th in St. Augustine, Florida.
