Jennifer “JennCity” Arroyo is the First Inductee to the Bullspike Radio Hall Of Fame 2014

JCWho better to be the first inductee to the 2014 Class of the Bullspike Radio Hall Of Fame than Jennifer “JennCity” Arroyo. When it comes to people who exude the rock and metal lifestyle in everything they do, JennCity is in the top of the list. Never letting anything come between her and her love of music.

The world has gotten to know JennCity from her time in Kittie as well as being the most badass and metal houseguest the the CBS hit show Big Brother Season 14. She proved the doubters wrong and showed her prowess by finishing in the final 5.

Those of us here in the NYC area know her best as a member of Suicide City and for being one of the top DJs for shows here. If you’re attending a local show and JennCity is your DJ between sets then you know you are in for a night of non stop kick ass rock and metal.

And she’s not even close to done yet. After many years of blood, sweat, and tears JennCity has released her debut album Out IV Blood to the world. A pure effort of everything she is put into some kick ass tunes.

It is for all these reasons and more that Jennifer “JennCity” Arroyo is the first inductee to the Bullspike Radio Hall Of Fame Class of 2014.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Drummer BRAD WILK Says Band May Have Played Its Last Show

Image

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE has not played live since headlining its own L.A. Rising festival show in Los Angeles in the summer of 2011, and it’s looking more and more likely that that show was the band’s last. Drummer Brad Wilk told The Pulse Of Radio that he’s made his peace with the idea that RAGE may be done. “Well, as far as I know, we played our last show in 2011 at the Coliseum, and if that was our last show, that’s a good way to go out,” he said. “I sort of had to put it in my head that that band is over in order for me to just move on with my life, to be honest with you, so that’s kind of where that lies. The Coliseum — awesome way to go out.”

Guitarist Tom Morello said something similar in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, commenting, “Whether or not we ever play music again in any capacity is unknown. I’m grateful for the music we played together.”

RAGE recorded three original studio albums and one set of covers before breaking up in 2000. The band reformed in 2007 but only played sporadic gigs and never a full tour. Morello said in 2012, “We’d have to agree to go on one. Once a year, the band meets and very seriously discusses and turns down awesome offers to tour the world.”

Morello is currently touring and recording as part of Bruce Springsteen‘s E STREET BAND, while Wilk played drums on BLACK SABBATH‘s 2013 reunion album, “13”, and recently joined a new rock outfit called THE LAST INTERNATIONALE.

Morello actually got Wilk together with the group, who will release their debut album in July.

Singer Zack de la Rocha and bassist Tim Commerford have been less visible, although de la Rocha recently showed up at the recording sessions for rap duo RUN THE JEWELS‘ second album.

MASTODON: More ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun’ Album Details Revealed

Image

Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON have announced details of their new album, their first since 2011’s “The Hunter”. The band’s sixth CD will be called “Once More ‘Round The Sun” and will be released by Reprise Records on June 24. It was recorded in Nashville with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who is known for his work with RUSH, DEFTONES, FOO FIGHTERS and ALICE IN CHAINS.

The album’s hard-hitting first single is “High Road”, which was released digitally today (April 29), the same day a pre-order for “Once More ‘Round The Sun” launches at all participating digital retailers. Pre-orders are being taken at MastodonRocks.com and all pre-orders will instantly receive a digital download of “High Road”.

Also available on June 24 will be a stunning deluxe 2LP vinyl edition of “Once More ‘Round The Sun”. This limited edition will include two discs pressed onto 180-gram black vinyl housed in a quadruple gatefold vinyl jacket featuring artwork by renowned Oakland-based artist Skinner, who specializes in “psychedelic nightmare paintings,” plus a CD of the complete album. The package will include four exclusive lithographs derived from the album artwork.

Those who preorder the deluxe vinyl edition will be entitled to bonus digital content: An instant download of “High Road”, plus another album track (to be determined) delivered digitally prior to street date, and a download of the entire album delivered digitally on street date.

MASTODON singer and bassist Troy Sanders told Paste Magazine about the “Once More ‘Round The Sun” cover artwork: “It’s… a work of art for sure. It’s… very eye-opening, very striking. It’s from another dimension, and a lot of our music is geared toward that idea — taking you to another planet on songs. It’s out there, and I think it’s incredible.”

“Once More ‘Round The Sun” track listing:

01. Tread Lightly
02. The Motherload
03. High Road
04. Once More ‘Round The Sun
05. Chimes At Midnight
06. Asleep In The Deep
07. Feast Your Eyes
08. Aunt Lisa
09. Ember City
10. Halloween
11. Diamond In The Witch House (feat. Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS)

Regarding the new MASTODON album title, Sanders told Paste Magazine: “The idea was generated before we recorded the title track on the record, but the title was thought up many months ago.

“After we finished the two-year touring cycle on our last record, ‘The Hunter’, we were kind of gearing up to go back to our rehearsal space in Atlanta. And we were starting the effort, the time, the blood, the energy, the months of driving, the recording and the long process between recording and the release day.

“In a nutshell: we’re fortunate enough to do this again, but there’s this feeling of this yearly cycle. It’s not a bad thing. We get to go tour a bunch, we get to record a bunch of songs we love. It’s embracing the positive — the wonderful side, to be able to have the same four dudes who love doing what we do so much. And like anything in the MASTODON world, it’s open to interpretation.”

According to Sanders, MASTODON recorded more than an album’s worth of material this time around, with the possibility an additional EP coming out sometime after the album release.

“We didn’t want a 90-minute album,” he told Paste Magazine. “We like to record around the 60-minute mark. That’s what our favorite records are. We’re in love with all 15 of [the songs], so they might all see the light of day in some platform or another.”

Regarding the song “Diamonds In The Witch House”, which features yet another guest spot from longtime collaborator Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS, Sanders joked: “I think subconsciously that we’re trying to involve him with every album enough to have a full set of songs eventually. I think his performance is great, his part still gives me chills. That’s a great sign.”

Asked what it’s been like working with Raskulinecz on the new album, MASTODON guitarist Bill Kelliher told Metal Hammer magazine: “It’s something that we totally need — a cheerleader to get our asses in gear. There he is saying, ‘Come on, you’re MASTODON… you’re one of the biggest bands in metal… Smash that hammer down and write some heavy shit. It’s time to do or die!’ He’s that kind of a guy.”

MASTODON drummer Brann Dailor recently told RollingStone.com about the band’s forthcoming CD: “It’s gonna be massive and insane, lots of epic greatness. There will be lots of huge riffs and new directions. It’s real weird, real math-y, real straightforward. It’s up, down and all around. It’s a culmination of everything for the band. The snowball keeps rolling and collecting snow.”

GEOFF TATE Announces ‘Queensrÿche Starring Geoff Tate – The Farewell Tour’

Image

More than thirty years after setting forth on the musical journey that would become known as QUEENSRŸCHE, singer Geoff Tate — one of rock’s quintessential front men and the lead vocalist heard on all QUEENSRŸCHE hits — will be performing his farewell tour as QUEENSRŸCHE beginning in late July.

The announcement of the tour, “Queensrÿche Starring Geoff Tate – The Farewell Tour”, comes hot on the heels of the recent amicable settlement with his former bandmates Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and Scott Rockenfield, who will be continuing with the band name.

With Geoff at the helm of QUEENSRŸCHE, the band experienced incredible success, garnering four Grammy nominations, performing in 46 different countries and selling over 20 million albums worldwide.

“One thing that’s really important for fans to know is that this never went to court,” comments Geoff Tate, who will be continuing as “Geoff Tate: The Voice Of Queensrÿche” once the summer farewell tour is complete.

As part of the agreement between the original members, Geoff will have the exclusive right to perform the concept albums “Operation: Mindcrime” and “Operation: Mindcrime II” as unique performances.

For the past several months, Geoff and his version of QUEENSRŸCHE (comprised of bassist Rudy Sarzo, guitarist Robert Sarzo, guitarist Kelly Gray, drummer Simon Wright and keyboardist Randy Gane) have been performing the fan favorite on their 25th-Anniversary Mindcrime Tour (with special guest Sass Jordan as “Sister Mary”) in front of sold-out audiences everywhere.

“It’s sort of similar to the PINK FLOYD situation where Roger Waters retained ‘The Wall’,” comments Geoff. “‘Mindcrime’ was my thing and my story, so it’s only appropriate that I keep that… The others will be touring as QUEENSRŸCHE and I’ll be continuing on as me.”

The popularity of the theatrical back-to-back presentation of the “Operation: Mindcrime” saga (“I” and “II”) was exemplified when the performance was captured for the 2007 double DVD/CD set, “Mindcrime At The Moore”, that hit #1 on Billboard‘s Top Music Videos chart and eventually reached gold status.

For the forthcoming tour, Geoff‘s version of QUEENSRŸCHE will be performing all the hits along with some rarities to celebrate the music he’s enjoyed making over the past thirty years.

Although the name will change, the lineup of stellar musicians performing with Geoff after this “farewell” tour is expected to remain the same.

Tickets go on sale for the majority of shows this Friday, May 2 and this Saturday, May 3.
