Attika 7 guitarist Rusty Coones will make a starring turn on the upcoming fifth season of “Sons Of Anarchy“. Coones will be playing nomad charter president Quinn on the series, which returns on September 11th.

Speaking on his involvement with the show he offered:

“I am very honored and of course very excited to be chosen for a character role in this seasons Sons Of Anarchy especially with my long running relationship with the show. Things just get better with this and of course the ATTIKA 7 album and upcoming tour, long may it continue!!”

Liturgy Vocalist Covers Shellac, Footage Available

The Chariot guitarist/vocalist Stephen “Stevis” Harrison isn’t a proponent of bands relying on fans to fund their albums. Speaking via his Twitter earlier today (August 31st), he stated:

“Stop using Kickstarter. You’re in a hardcore band. Not having money for things is part of the game. Sacrifice and work it out.”

He later clarified that his comments weren’t directed at Confide, and eventually followed up with the following tweet:

“Just to clarify, That last tweet wasn’t directed towards anyone in particular. Its something ive noticed has been happening alot, thats all.”

The Chariot‘s excellent new album “One Wing” saw a release earlier this week.

Texas In July Release “Cry Wolf” Lyric Video

Texas In July have uploaded the following lyric video for their track “Cry Wolf“. The song appears on the bands forthcoming self-titled new album, which will see an October 09th release date on Equal Vision. Pre-orders for that effort are currently up on

ASG Recording New Album

ASG have begun recording their fifth full-length album at Sunset Lodge in Hollywood, CA with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet). Relapse Records will be putting out the effort in early 2013.

Confide have decided to return with a new album and have launched this Kickstarter campaign to help fund the effort. The band are seeking to raise $30,000 dollars for the album and stated the following regarding that rather high price:

“The minimum goal that we discussed and chose for this project to happen was $30,000. The initial sight of that number may be overwhelming, but when taken into consideration that the average album cost (supported by a record label) is anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000 (give or take, based on different circumstances), we believed that this was a reasonable goal. Every cent being raised is being poured directly back into this album, as the video above briefly explains [see the aforementioned Kickstarter link.]

Please keep in mind that $30,000 is our “minimum” goal for this project; that amount has been budgeted out to be just enough to fund the entire writing and recording process properly. Anything over $30,000 would allow us to financially invest more into this album, providing an even better record for you!”

This Or The Apocalypse have revealed that their new track “Hell Praiser” will serve as the first single from their forthcoming album “Dead Years“. As previously reported, the group will be filming a music video for the song with director David Brodsky (All That Remains, Papa Roach) during their September 16th show at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA.

Along with the video shoot news comes the following pre-production demo of a new album track titled “Hate The Ones You Love“. This Or The Apocalypse will release their new album “Dead Years” on September 25th through eOne Music.

A full listing of dates and venues will be announced for the tour on September 07th. In the meantime, Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce shared the following regarding it:

“America, we are back, we are excited, we are ready and we are fucking headlining! This is our biggest headlining tour ever and we are bringing with us, the biggest, heaviest and best bands that rock has to offer.

This Monster Energy Outbreak Tour is going to be fucking insane, more so especially due to the fact that this is not only going to be our last tour of the year and our last tour in America for quite awhile, but also because this is going to be the last tour on the Reckless and Relentless album cycle. We will be playing songs from Stand Up and Scream, Reckless and Relentless and a handful of brand new songs from our upcoming album.

You, North America, have been chosen to hear our new songs before anyone else in the world. Let’s make this a tour to fucking remember. Lets end 2012 bigger, better and harder than anywhere else on this earth.

We can’t wait to see you all. If 2012 really is the end of the world, then all I can say is….we are going out with a bang motherfuckers! We will see you all soon.”

Asking Alexandria will finish up work on their new album in October. They are presently eyeing an early 2013 release date through Sumerian Records for it.
