- If the acronym NWOBHM means something to you, then you're probably already stoked about the double bill featuring English bands UFO and Saxon. That unwieldy cluster of letters stands for "new wave of British heavy metal," which is probably easier to say than the consonant-heavy shorthand.]]>
- A study earlier this year reported that more feature film productions were hosted in Georgia than anywhere else in the world. That got me to thinking: are we cool enough here in Atlanta now where if we saw Ben Stiller walking down one of the Peachtree Streets, or Scarlett Johansson sipping a coffee at Alon's Bakery, or Clint Eastwood eating at Chops: would we just notice and let them go about their business? Or are we still making a big fuss? When I was 14, my parents took the family on a tour of Europe.]]>

- The official Jensen Noen-directed video for "Into The Fire" a brand new song from the U.K. metalcore band ASKING ALEXANDRIA, can be seen below. The track marks the group's first recording with singer Danny Worsnop since he rejoined ASKING ALEXANDRIA last fall.
"Into The Fire" will appear on ASKING ALEXANDRIA's next studio LP, which will be released on December 15 via Sumerian.
Worsnop recently said that he was having "so much fun writing an album I never thought I'd make with people I never thought I'd make on with again. It's out of the box, out of my comfort zone, out of the ordinary, and out of this world! This is something totally new and unique that I cannot wait for the world to hear. This album has me proud, humbled, reassured, and affirmed. Welcome to a new era, and a new sound which I'm sure in two years will be ripped off by far too many artists (there's a song about that on here too)."
Danny continued: "You will not hear songs about partying, or girls, or how rock and roll I am. Instead you will hear some of the most carefully crafted songs I've ever made that hopefully will live longer than I do.
"Thank you to [ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce] for writing some phenomenal music for me to create stories with, [bassist Sam Bettley], [drummer James Cassells] and [guitarist Cameron Liddell] for their great talent in making this sound so good, and [producer Matt Good] for heading the operation and fooling the world into thinking I know what I'm doing."
The reunion between Danny and ASKING ALEXANDRIA was confirmed last October following weeks of rumors and speculation regarding the status of his replacement, Denis Shaforostov, who joined the band in 2015.
Danny, who released a solo album, "The Long Road Home", in February while still being involved with his other band WE ARE HARLOT in between acting gigs, told Finland's Kaaos TV that he is working closely with the members of ASKING ALEXANDRIA to ensure that he is able to pursue other projects alongside his touring and recording activities with AA.
When Danny's return to ASKING ALEXANDRIA was first announced, Bruce said in a video message that Shaforostov had "just stopped talking to us." But Denis later tweeted, "I left AA because I can't be in a touring band at this point in my life. There's no drama and I don't want to be a part of it."
- According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Lee Roth has signed with ICM Partners, a full-service talent agency, worldwide in all areas.
The VAN HALEN singer continues to be represented by business manager Gerri Leonard of Leonard And Associates.
Roth gave a rare charity performance on September 9 in Beverly Hills. Diamond Dave took the stage at the exclusive private charity benefit "A Summer Spectacular Under The Stars", which was hosted by Mario Lopez, and delivered a four-song set — two solo favorites, "Just A Gigolo" and "California Girls", along with a pair of VAN HALEN standards, "Ice Cream Man" and "Jump".
VAN HALEN has been inactive since it completed its U.S. tour in October 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.
The trek was VAN HALEN's first since an aborted North American run three years earlier in support of its then-new studio album, "A Different Kind Of Truth".
Released in 2015 was "Tokyo Dome In Concert", VAN HALEN's first-ever live collection featuring Roth, despite numerous pro-shot concerts from the band's original heyday being heavily booted for years.
- "All At Once", a new song from PEARL JAM, SOUNDGARDEN and TEMPLE OF THE DOG drummer Matt Cameron, can be streamed using the widget below. The track is taken from Cameron's new solo album titled "Cavedweller", which will be released on September 22.
The disc, which was completed before SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell passed away in May, features Matt on vocals and guitar, with drums by Mark Guiliana and bass by Tim Lefebvre, both of whom played on David Bowie's "Blackstar". "Mark's performance on the title track was kind of mind-blowing," Cameron told Rolling Stone. "That was kind of what I was hearing for a drum performance, so I just reached out through Instagram or Facebook and he got right back to me. Once he was on board, I had a little more confidence to complete the project."
Cameron — who has played in previous side projects such as HATER and WELLWATER CONSPIRACY, with which he has recorded three and five albums, respectively — admitted that handling the vocals on his solo album was "the toughest part for me. I'm pretty limited in terms of what I can do, but it's better for me to do it all as opposed to bringing in a real singer and doing it that way even though my vocal prowess is very limited in comparison to Chris and [PEARL JAM singer] Eddie [Vedder]," he told Rolling Stone.
Cameron was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame earlier this year as a twenty-year member of PEARL JAM, although both SOUNDGARDEN and TEMPLE OF THE DOG — which reunited last year for a tour — are both now seemingly over following the death of Cornell.
