Update (5:45PM ET): This story has been amended with a statement from Stone Sour confirming that Jim Root is in fact no longer in the band.
Earlier this year, guitarist Jim Root sat out Stone Sour's tour with the reason given that he was concentrating his efforts on writing music for Slipknot's next album. However, now the band has announced that it has parted ways with Root.
The bill of Mastodon, Gojira and Kvelertak is undoubtedly one of the most exciting tour packages to be put together this year. All three bands complement each other in unique ways while sharing a large, intertwining fan base. The three modern metal leaders teamed up to invade New York City last night (May 15) and the energy within the city's Terminal 5 venue was buzzing with elation throughout.
As we just reported, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis is heading to prison for six years after being sentenced Friday (May 16) for his role in a murder-for-hire plot. Right after the sentencing was announced, AltPress.com published an extensive interview with the metal singer in which he talks about the case, his troubled marriage and his future in music.
It wasn't that long ago that Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan got to realize one of his dreams by signing on as the creative director of the Resistance Pro wrestling league. Now fans will be able to get a peek behind the curtain as AMC has signed on to create a still-untitled reality series about Corgan's involvement in the wrestling league.
We're used to seeing Metallica rock out live, so it was quite a sight to check out frontman James Hetfield not only without the thunderous backing of his band, but also unplugging for an acoustic benefit. Hetfield was part of an all-star lineup for the 'Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit at San Francisco's Fillmore Thursday night (May 15), where he performed a four-song set and returned for the finale.
Falling in Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke has one less concern to worry about as a domestic abuse charge that dates back to 2012 is no longer hanging over his head. Radke was in court on Wednesday (May 14) of this week, and there were initially conflicting reports as to whether the charges had been dropped.
As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis has been sentenced to six years in prison for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife. The sentence was handed down earlier today (May 16) by Judge Carlos Armour of the San Diego Superior Court.
