Vinyl lovers, start saving your money and circle April 19 on your calendar because that's when the next Record Store Day is taking place. As usual, a number of top acts are preparing special releases for the event.
Hirax are ready to return this week with their 'Immortal Legacy' album, but before the disc drops in stores, Loudwire is teaming with the band to give you a chance to hear the album via an exclusive stream (listen below).
The top hard rock and metal stories from Loudwire and around the web for Feb. 28, 2014:
KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this spring, but much to the dismay of many fans, the group has decided not to perform at the event. In a recent statement, the band revealed that rather than worry which lineups and members are represented during a performance, they've instead decided to focus on the induction. While the move may not make all of KISS' fanbase happy, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, a longtime fan of the group, says he understands the reasoning for it.
