Yesterday the long-rumored new drummer of Slipknot, Jay Weinberg, was called a shitbag by his former bandmate, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!. Today another former bandmate of Weinberg‘s—Madball‘s Jorge “Hoya Roc” Guerra—has voiced his support of Grace‘s comment, offering his support via the tweet seen after the break. Meanwhile, a number of tweets followed Grace‘s initial shitbag comment yesterday, those included:

“We once had a drummer who sprained his ankle and wanted our tour manager to call 911 and have an ambulance come for him #entitlement”

“When our tour manager said no the drummers Daddy called him and scolded him saying the drummer was a “star” and needed to be treated as such”

“We once had a drummer who would go behind our back and tell house light people to focus all stage lights on him. #entitlement”

“We once had a drummer who threatened to sue us after he quit via twitter #entitlement”

“We once had a drummer who told me to move aside on stage cause the audience couldn’t see enough of him #entitlement”

“I’m just kidding, none of that ever happened.”

Grace did later throw a compliment Weinberg‘s way however:

“he’s seriously a fantastic drummer. Natural talent. Hits fucking haaard!”

Randy Blythe Clarifies That New Lamb Of God Album Won’t Be Out In Early 2015

A comment made by Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe on ‘The Jasta Show‘ had many believing that Lamb Of God‘s new album would be out early next year. This is not the case as Blythe has clarified the chat, revealing that the album hasn’t even been written yet. Speaking through his Instagram, Blythe offered:

“Despite what all the metal blogs are blaring ” RANDY SAYS NEW LAMB OF GOD ALBUM EARLY 2015!!!!”- take that with a grain if salt, ok, because they also ignore the fact that during the interview I also say “The new album isn’t written yet” – It will come out when it comes out, after it’s done & we are happy with it. When that will be, we shall see- we kinda gotta write the thing first, ya know? I don’t have a crystal ball, & I got no other answers than it will come out when it’s done.”

Spotted earlier this week, Century Media‘s planned series of In Flames reissues will indeed make their way stateside. Unlike the previous European store listings though, each release will arrive on digipak CD, vinyl and digital formats.

Each also features a number of bonus tracks with the initial wave of “Lunar Strain“, “Subterranean“, “The Jester Race” and “Whoracle” all due out on November 11th. “Lunar Strain” and “Subterranean” in particular will be made available on red vinyl to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
