It looks as though the Goldieblox / Beastie Boys legal debate couldl be over before the case hits courts. The toy company has issued a new statement in which they reveal that they don't want to fight with the living members of the group and were unaware of Adam Yauch's wishes that the band's music not be used for commercial purposes at the time they created their parody of the song 'Girls.'
Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer is a busy man these days. Not only does he have two new albums out with 5FDP and his autobiography on the way, but he's set to premiere a short comedic film based upon two characters that he and his drum tech Bobby "Rockshow" Watson created. In fact, the film, 'The Adventures of Uncle Colt & Cletus: Hedge-Hoggin',' will premiere on Loudwire this Friday (Nov. 29) at 9PM ET/8PM CT.
As the year ends and touring starts to wind down, there's a lot of hope for 2014 thanks to a number of festivals beginning to reveal their participants. The Maryland Deathfest is looking very promising for 2014 as a bunch of new bands have been added to the bill.
Congrats are in order to Smile Empty Soul, who won five straight battles to become the latest entry into Loudwire's Cage Match Hall of Fame. The song that did it for them is 'False Alarm,' a rocker off the band's 'Chemicals' album. The track is also quickly emerging as one of the band's live standouts.
