New Emmure music is apparently on the way with band frontman Frankie Palmeri tweeting the following earlier today (July 31st):

“Really the motive behind new music right now for EMMURE is because I wasn’t able to say what needed to be said on STTG.”

This Is Hell don’t seem convinced that Asking Alexandria‘s Danny Worsnop is deserving of his self-proclaimed rockstar status. Amid a handful of snarky tweets on their Twitter, the band had the following to say about Worsnop‘s recent assertions:

“I can’t believe how loosely the term rock star gets thrown around in 2012. I mean, it’s an awful term to begin with, let’s discuss… If your band hasn’t sold at LEAST a million albums, you’re not a rock star. If your band isn’t selling out arenas, you’re not a rock star…

Having a drinking/drug problem, that doesn’t make you a rock star. If that was the case, we’d all have an uncle who is a rock star… I’m pretty confident that there won’t be another ‘rock star’ anytime soon, or ever for that matter.”

Black Light Burns Streaming New Single “How To Look Naked”

The new Black Light Burns single “How To Look Naked” has been made available for streaming over at Craveonline.com. Speaking on the track, the bands Wes Borland (also of Limp Bizkit) offered:

“Once again I have been asked to say something about a piece of music that should speak for itself. This song may be about you. You are ashamed of yourself. You filter everything in fear of not having the love you put out into the world reciprocated. You have no tact. You are a bag of hammers in desperate need of being dropped off of a cliff.

You’ve grown into a worthless consumer living off a steady diet of bullshit. You reside entirely in a bubble but constantly look for confirmation by playing up your existence to be a shallow reflection of the faux heroes you vicariously live your life through. Should I beat the horse anymore? Has the carpet been thoroughly pulled out from beneath the feet of the song?

Is any word written here relevant to any part of the song it’s referring to? Anything is possible. Giving quotes for singles feels like whispering sweet nothings to a maple tree. I think I just got sap on my face…”

A music video for the song itself is expected to launch soon. The groups new album “The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall” is scheduled for an August 14th release date.
