- Here we go, Alice in Chains fans! The band has issued a teaser for their new song and video, "The One You Know," that will be coming tomorrow (May 4). Watch the teaser here.
- Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators caught some by surprise when they found time to duck into the studio earlier this year, but their sessions proved productive. In a recent interview, Myles Kennedy revealed that a new album has been completed. "It'll probably come out later this year," stated Kennedy, who praised the album's "great live feel." The band has already started booking tour dates.
- Did you enjoy that Napalm Death feature in HBO's Silicon Valley? The character Guilfoyle set an alert of the brief-but-forceful "You Suffer" to let him know when the price of Bitcoin fluctuated above or beyond a certain threshold. Picking up the idea and running with it, Earache Records has now started a Twitter account at @NapalmDeathBot that tweets Bitcoin's price hourly. Head here to see the account and revisit Silicon Valley's Napalm Death featuring scenes here.
