Of Mice & Men are headed our way shortly and have already gone straight to the top of my books by booking two Australian bands as national supports. One of the two, Sienna Skies, features on our cover this week, with bass player Joshua Wade stopping in to run us through a whole heap of stuff.
We also revisit our chat with Chad Gray from Mudvayne ahead of their visit next week, as well as James Morley, Atreyu amd Angelus Apatrida. There’s music and touring news from Radio Birdman, Carcass, Churches Of Steel, Yomi Ship, Skillet, Tenacious D, Conjurer, Pandemonium Rocks, Big Gay Day, Svalbard, The Ascended, Chaotic Uprising, Haken and Nowhere Festival.
We’ve got new music coming out of our eyebrows, so have a listen to tracks from Redhook, Bad Party, Alienist, Valhalore, Witchgrinder, Battlesnake, Chavez Cartel, Social Strangers, Audio Reign, Mammal and Beast Machine.
Our album review team tell you what to expect from new albums from Bloom and Ace Frehley and our live team check out the best of the past week’s concerts.
Have yourself a great weekend and remember, stay HEAVY
