Today In Music

This is essentially a filler post since I haven’t made a real post in ages.

WELL! The music industry is hopping a good bit now-a-days, with scum like Justin Bieber still polluting the airwaves. He hit his head on a glass door. It was fucking hilarious. Go find the video. Anyway: These are the biggest things happening in [good] music today!

  • A cause of death for Jimmy “The Rev.” Sullivan of Avenged Sevenfold has been determined: Accidental Prescription Drug Overdose. Apparently he also suffered from an enlarged heart, which coroners don’t think helped him at all.
  • A new track from Papa Roach was released in the hype for their first live album, Time For Annihilation. The track can be downloaded from their website; http://www.paparoach.com
  • If you didn’t already know: Paul Grey of SlipKnot passed away in late May. He was found dead in a hotel room in Iowa, near a syringe and pill bottle. Suspect overdose.
  • Paramore’s Haley Williams’ Twitter account was hacked a few weeks ago, and a topless image of the singer was posted on her TwitPic account. Obviously: I can’t link you to the image, so you’ll have to go Google it yourself. She regained control of the account five minutes later, and made the statement that she was hacked.
  • The television show Glee! gained about twenty-bazillion more viewers after the cast did a Lady Gaga-themed episode. Their Bad Romance cover is pretty damn good, too.
  • It was announced in the Green Day: Rock Band demo for XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 that the next installment of Rock Band would include a keyboard peripheral. I just wonder how they’re going to fit all of that on a screen.
  • Trent Reznor’s new band How To Destroy Angels released their first EP last week for free download. You can get a high-quality physical copy of the CD for a minor fee. It sounds particularly Nine Inch Nails-esque.
  • Muse forced thrash-metal gods Slayer off stage at the Rock AM Ring festival in Germany after Muse’s super-massive UFO prop blocked out the television and sound signals. A great lol was had.
  • Avenged Sevenfold has been slowly revealing the cover to their new album, Nightmare, on their website: http://www.avengedsevenfold.com
  • Speaking of A7X, the new single from Nightmare, also title Nightmare, is available on iTunes. Its pretty win.
  • MORE A7X: On a disturbing note, it was revealed that three days before The Rev died, he wrote and gave a song to his fellow band-mates entitled Death. That’s not creepy at all. </sarcasm>

… well. That’s about it. Hope this fills your BURNING DESIRE to read my blog for now… except you don’t have a burning desire to read my blog. Oh well.
