Snippets was already taken, so here’s a few sausages I’ll throw your way:
Volto! are playing another gig, this time at The Mint on the 31st of March, which is also located in The City Of Angels. Tickets are just under $25 and will be a great chance to check out some of their new songs. Hopefully Gryphon Labs might support them as well. Gnjasmkr will be a giving away free* beers on the night as well! Ticket details here: http://www.themintla.com/show/detail/55872
Did you guys all catch Puscifer on TV the other night? Was it any good, or were you madly yelling expletives at the TV like some commenters I know. Haven’t seen it? Well thanks to the power of Youtube you can:
If you like voting on the internet, and like Tool, then you may want to consider voting for Tool as the best Live Artist in the Revolver Golden Gods award. Or vote for Seether – it’s up to you! If I remember correctly Maynard once presented an gong to ISIS at one of these prestigious awards ceremonies. Don’t get your hopes up about voting Danny for best drummer though! Edit: To make it easier for you to vote, here’s the direct link to the poll involving Tool.
Finally, just in case albums by Meshuggah, The Mars Volta, Volto! and Cannibal Corpse weren’t enough, it seems as though The Melvins will be releasing something on the 5th of June. Something called Freak Puke and it’s noted that it’s Melvins lite (speculation seems to point to Trevor Dunn playing bass in a Melvins 3-piece). The cover looks a little like Lateralus so maybe they rerecorded their own version of that…
*free for the first person who gets some good Tool recording news out of Danny!
