- The official lyric video for the song "Dead Tomorrow" from reactivated San Francisco Bay Area metallers SKINLAB can be seen below. The track was produced by 36 CRAZYFISTS guitarist Steve Holt and marks the first new music from the band since 2009's "The Scars Between Us" album.
SKINLAB will kick off a short southwestern run, dubbed "Brothers In Blood", on January 25 in San Diego, wrapping on February 3 in Harlingen, Texas. Support on the trek will come from PISSING RAZORS and SHATTERED SUN. A five-date "No Sleep Till Cali" run will launch on February 6 in Tucson, Arizona and end on February 11 in Orangevale, California.
SKINLAB recently announced the return of guitarist Steve Green, best known to fans as Snake.
"We are very excited to announce that our brother Snake has returned home and has rejoined SKINLAB for the 'Brothers In Blood Tour'," said SKINLAB frontman Steev Esquivel. "Our boy has slithered right back into our lives, and we embrace him with open arms.
"Snake has always been a huge part of SKINLAB, making his debut on the 'Eyesore' EP back in 1998. That fan favorite has become a collector's item, and Snake's blood and spirit has been a constant fixture through every release we've done since. We couldn't be happier to have him back for this tour."
Added Snake: "It all comes down to LOVE... LOVE for these two dudes, Steev and Paul [Hopkins, drums], with whom I have shared so much time with. LOVE for the powerful music we have made, LOVE for the fans of SKINLAB, and ultimately, the LOVE for LIFE around every corner we turn. We're older, wiser and share a mutual passion for what we've created together. As for the future, we'll enter the studio and take things day by day, waiting to see what fate the metal Gods will bring forth. Enjoy the moment!"
"The last week has been an amazing experience that started off with handshakes, hugs and tears," continued Esquivel. "The mood quickly turned into a massive wall of heaviness, however, when we began rehearsing a setlist of a dozen-plus songs, each met with smiles and nods of approval. To us, it's obvious that this machine is back in action and ready for war! We are very excited to jump back on the road!"
In addition to rejoining SKINLAB, Snake remains a member of THE DEVIL IN CALIFORNIA, with whom he's been performing since 2015. The band has been added to the bill for SKINLAB's homecoming show on February 10 in Crockett, California.
SKINLAB's lineup for the "Brothers In Blood Tour" is:
Steev Esquivel - Vocals, Bass
Paul Hopkins - Drums
Snake - Guitar
Marcos Medina Rivera - Guitar
- Fan-filmed video footage of STEEL PANTHER's January 19 performance at The Limelight in Belfast, Northern Ireland can be seen below.
STEEL PANTHER is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Lower The Bar", which was released in March 2016 via Kobalt Music Recordings. The disc was co-produced with regular collaborator Jay Ruston, and includes eleven songs recorded at studios in north Hollywood and Sherman Oaks, with an additional two tracks on a Best Buy deluxe edition.
When asked by A Music Blog, Yea? whether the members of STEEL PANTHER apply the "Lower The Bar" title to their relationships or if they have certain "stipulations", guitarist Satchel said: "I tend to feel — and this is my own personal belief — 'lowering the bar' is really the best thing you could do in order to have a happy life. It doesn't matter what you're talking about. Let's say, you just want a sandwich. If you're expectations of having a really great sandwich, if you go in with that expectation [you'll be let down]. It's just like having sex with a Tinder date. But, let's say you're on a Tinder date, and you, lucky guy, are able to convince her [the interviewer] by using your cousin's picture to go on a Tinder date with this hot young chick. You get to the date, you're at Taco Bell and you see that this dude doesn't look anything like his cousin. You're disappointed, aren't you? You should go in expecting to date a drummer and if you get a guitar player or bass player, you're happy."
- CINDERELLA frontman Tom Keifer spoke to AXS about his early '90s battle with vocal cord paresis, a neurological condition on the left side of his voice box that almost put an end to his career. "Most singers that get [the condition] don't really ever sing again so I was told that I would never sing again. And the day I was given the news I was told my only prayer for singing again would be to try to retrain it and work with speech pathologists and vocal coaches. And I'd been working with coaches for decades and taking two steps forward and three steps back — it's just been really frustrating, so the first thing that comes to mind is it really taught me a lot of patience. And I'm like anyone else, we want instant gratification, we want things fixed, we want things now and that was not going to happen with this problem."
He continued: "For the first couple of years, I was in search of a different answer because working with vocal coaches sounded like a lot of work. I was almost in denial and I went to a lot more doctors looking for someone who could give me a shot or a pill and fix it. But of course, there wasn't anything like that. So yeah, it taught me patience but the other positive is that it actually improved my voice, I've learned so much from training that I think I'm a better singer and stronger than I was before the problem. I feel lucky that I was able to overcome it and I had a lot of great teachers along the way."
While treating and managing his vocal cord condition — a process which has included six surgeries — Keifer recorded his debut solo album, "The Way Life Goes", which was released as an expanded, deluxe edition on October 20 via Cleopatra Records.
"The Way Life Goes - Deluxe Edition" includes the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (KINGS OF LEON, JASON ALDEAN, LADY ANTEBELLUM). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy Award winner Vance Powell with Keifer and his bandmates. Fans also get to hear a powerful new take on the CINDERELLA classic "Nobody's Fool", newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM.
