WHITESNAKE To Release Their Much Anticipated New Album “Forevermore”

January 19th, 2011

WHITESNAKE  “Forevermore”

WHITESNAKE “Forevermore”

WHITESNAKE, the legendary rock’n’roll legacy founded and formed by renowned singer/songwriter David Coverdale, unleashes a brand new storming ‘Snake statement, “Forevermore” on Frontiers Records on March 25th in Europe and March 29th in North America.

Their 11th studio album, “Forevermore” was recorded, produced and mixed by Coverdale, guitarist Doug Aldrich and Michael McIntyre at Snakebyte Studios and Grumblenott Studios & Villas in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, with additional work at Casa Dala, Sherman Oaks, CA, and WHITESNAKE will take to the road for a full world tour in support of the release.

Formed in 1977, and steered by the legendary Coverdale, WHITESNAKE carry a rightful reputation as one of the world’s leading rock’n’roll bands. Coverdale’s blues and soul roots, combined with a feral sense of rock and roll, have consistently shaped the ‘Snake’s sound, and add to that Coverdale’s love and appreciation of impeccable musicianship and you have a failsafe recipe for success.

Their ascent to the very top of the rock’n’roll tree was confirmed with 1987’s self-titled mega-platinum album, which saw two top 10 hits, two number one singles with ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Is This Love’ and a virtual 24 hour domination of MTV around the world. Such triumphs were surely foretold when as a young man from Saltburn-By-Sea; Coverdale enthusiastically answered the call to be Deep Purple’s singer. Such bombast, bravado, talent and passion have thus helped establish WHITESNAKE as the perennial platinum favorite they have become.

With “Forevermore” Coverdale has reignited an explosively fruitful vein of creativity with guitarist and co-writer/producer Aldrich, Reb Beach (Winger, Alice Cooper) on guitar, Brian Tichy (Ozzy, Billy Idol, Foreigner) on drums and Michael Devin (Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lynch Mob) on bass, and as with all WHITESNAKE’s albums, Coverdale aided so capably by Aldrich opens up his heart and soul to express emotions and empathy rarely heard these days in any musical genre.

More than simply their latest release, “Forevermore” represents WHITESNAKE’s no holds barred, most heartfelt, melodic and musically muscular excursion for many a year.

The album’s release will be anticipated by the digital only release of the first single/video clip “Love Will Set You Free” on February 21st.

Love Will Set You Free (sample)

“Forevermore” will be specially released on a “Snake Pack” edition for the first 3 weeks in England only. This very special release – arranged in conjunction with Future Publishing and Classic Rock magazine – will come with a collector’s edition 132 pages deluxe magazine + A1 poster & metal pin badge and shall feature an exclusive cover art and 2 bonus live tracks “Slide It In” and “Cheap An’ Nasty” which will serve as an appetizer for the forthcoming “Live @ Donington 1990” to be released in the summer 2011.

The album is also being released on a double gatefold vinyl format, with deluxe special editions to be announced shortly.

This time Coverdale and Co. have really laid it on the line for their fans, and be sure of this, the Snake’s charms are going to convert a whole new army of believers… just watch.

“Forevermore” will include the following songs:

Steal Your Heart Away; All Out Of Luck; Love Will Set You Free; Easier Said Than Done; Tell Me How; I Need You (Shine A Light); One Of These Days; Love And Treat Me Right; Dogs In The Street; Fare Thee Well; Whipping Boy Blues; My Evil Ways; Forevermore.

WHITESNAKE is:

David Coverdale – vocals

Doug Aldrich – guitar

Reb Beach – guitars

Michael Devin – bass

Brian Tichy – drums

Produced by Los Bros Brutalos (David Coverdale, Doug Aldrich, Michael McIntyre)

by EvilG
‘The Architects of Guilt’ out next month
TEXAS – North Texas devastating death metal act, The Famine, has posted a third track from the forthcoming full-length, The Architects of Guilt, on the band’s official MySpace page.  “The New Hell”, the album’s punishing opening track, can be streamed online now at: http://www.myspace.com/thefaminedestroys, while a mobile-web-accessible YouTube audio stream is also available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0eZCCz2rbA.  “The New Hell” joins the recently released, “Ad Mortem” and “VII The Fraudulent”, as the first songs to be revealed from The Famine’s sophomore Solid State Records release.

The Architects of Guilt will hit stores on February 15th.
The first single from The Architects of Guilt, “Ad Mortem”, is now available for download on iTunes, where the band is currently featured on the “Rock” and “Metal” pages, at: http://www.solidstaterecords.com/itunes_links/the_famine_ad_mortem.php, or on Amazon.com at: http://www.solidstaterecords.com/itunes_links/the_famine_ad_mortem_amazon.php.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD Enters Studio; Prepares For Tour With Eluveitie

January 18th, 2011
by EvilG

3 INCHES OF BLOOD made a huge splash on the heavy metal community with the release of their last epic ‘Here Waits Thy Doom’, now the band is preparing for an exciting tour as direct support to ELUVEITIE, but before that gets started they will be making a quick pit stop into Shostroud Productions in Vancouver to record a couple of their new cuts with Sho Murray (City of Fire) and Byron Stroud (Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory). One of the songs will be played live on the upcoming tour and will be making its way online soon. The band comments:

“It’s a great time for us to be touring North America again. We haven’t slugged it out in the US since Mayhem fest in summer 2010 and we’re always happy to play to our loyal Canadian brethren. Everyone in the 3IOB camp have been eagerly anticipating this tour. We’ve never toured with a band like Eluveitie before. Their fan base is probably more similar to ours than most other bands we’ve toured with in the past. The Holy Grail guys are always fun to hang out with and we’re curious to check out System Divide. We’re extra pumped for this tour because it will give us the opportunity to road-test a new song or two. Hope everyone digs the new jams.”

WAKE UP FEST – Benefit Shows for The Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng

January 18th, 2011
by EvilG

Following a tragic car accident on November 3rd, 2008, Chi Cheng, bassist of the world renowned hard rock band, The Deftones, has been in a state of semi-consciousness after suffering severe TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

Under the supervision of Dr. DeFina, Chief Scientific Officer and founder of International Brain Research Foundation (http://www.ibrfinc.org/), Chi has shown remarkable signs of recovery. Although great strides and great progress have been made in administering a pioneering method of treatment to wake Chi up, funds are needed to continue Chi’s treatment and bring him back to total consciousness.

Chi’s mother, Jeanne Cheng, her son and Chi’s brother, Ming Cheng, and family friends Gina Blackmore and Dennis Morrow have been working tirelessly to raise awareness and money for towards continuing Chi’s treatment. Benefit shows have already commenced, and on Saturday, January 22nd, WAKE UP FEST, a series of shows around the world that will be donating 100% of their ticket sales to the cause, will continue. A complete list of shows can be found at http://wakeupfest.com/.

But it doesn’t end on the 22nd. Shows are being scheduled well into 2011, and will continue to roll on as long as people are willing to play and raise money for the cause. On top of the benefit shows, national recording artists are being asked to donate $.25 from their ticket sales from any specified show to help get Chi to a treatment facility in New Jersey for six months of rehabilitation. Relocation is still an issue, and anyone willing to donate a motor home, tour bus, or any other mode of transportation to get Chi from coast to coast is urged to contact the family at www.oneloveforchi.com.

If you give to one charity this year, let it be this one. Individual donations can be made through www.oneloveforchi.com. So many beautiful people have come together to raise money for a phenomenal human being who deserves a second chance; what better way than through music, something so near and dear to Chi, that has the power to unite people of all races and creeds across the globe for positive change. Come out to the shows and be a part of this truly amazing movement.

In Music, Healing and Prayer,

The Chi Cheng Family of Friends

Ending the whole fiasco will be the annual EYEHATEGOD Mardi Gras show on February 25 in New Orleans with guests, crust/grind legends Phobia and Texas newcomers Venomous Maximus.

KIUAS – farewell gig of Ilja Jalkanen – live-videos

January 18th, 2011
by EvilG

KIUAS, whose vocalist Ilja Jalkanen last year officially left the band because his musical tastes have changed, now had one final concert with Ilja, which took place at Nosturi, Helsinki, on January 15. Ilja will not leave the stage, just sing other kinds of music.

At their previous gig at Pakkahuone, Tampere, on October 29, 2010, KIUAS performed with stand-in-vocalist Asim Searah [THE NIBIRUAN], who also was a guest at Ilja’s farewell-concert.

The whole evening, including the other bands on the schedule, AMORAL and RYTMIHÄIRIÖ, was under the headline of being dedicated to a late friend to all of these bands (and many more Finnish musicians), Lauri Mailasalo. He was the bass player of CODEON and also a lighting technician to the mentioned bands who passed away due to leukemia.
All the proceeds of the evening are going to Sylva Ry, an organization of parents whose children have leukemia.

Some videos are online now, thanks to user Rosvin3006:
