Boy, would it be awesome to head to the U.K. in June! The 2013 Download festival has announced more acts for its upcoming three-day show, and the list is incredibly enticing. Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age, Motorhead, 30 Seconds to Mars, the Gaslight Anthem, HIM and A Day to Remember have all been added to the bill.
With Election Day taking place in the United States tomorrow (Nov. 6), Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney is getting exponentially more heated. As one of the few subjects that truly divides groups of human begins into two halves, politics constantly draws passionate statement from people of all backgrounds. One of those backgrounds happens to be playing bass and providing vocals for Motorhead, with the legendary Lemmy Kilmister offering his two cents on the election.
Motorhead are filling the time between albums with their latest live document, 'The World Is Ours Vol. 2 - Anyplace Crazy as Anywhere Else,' but the thought process has begun for their next record and frontman Lemmy Kilmister says there is the possibility that it could be a covers disc.
Lemmy Kilmister was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. He spoke all about his experience playing festivals, his Motorhead bandmates, this past summer’s Mayhem Festival, his adoration for fellow British band Skunk Anansie and much more. If you missed Jackie’s show, read the full interview with Lemmy Kilmister:
A day off on tour is something to be savored, just ask the artists that recently wrapped up the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. While the tour rolled into New England for their Aug. 3 date in Mansfield, Mass., many bands on the tour made the most of the day off before taking in the sights and sounds of Boston.
For the last two months the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has been bringing a healthy dose of metal and mayhem to stops across the U.S. After finally making its way to the East Coast, the metal extravaganza wraps up today (Aug. 5) clocking in its last show at the Comcast Centre in Hartford. Ct.
With the Mayhem Festival under way this summer, each of the bands will get very familiar with the music of their cohorts. So we at Loudwire asked a number of the acts what songs from their peers on the bill that they feel are so genius that they wished it was part of their catalog. As you can see, the veteran acts are getting a lot of love.
