If you weren’t able to catch Phil Anselmo in action earlier this year as he took the stage for the Metal Masters 3 Clinic, don’t worry, he is hitting the road with his band Down later this year.
In an interview with Full Metal Jackie, Anselmo stated, “We got the new Down record, man, which is finished and mastered and we’re just waitin’ on art work.”
Anselmo continued, “To me I’m happy with this EP – we went through a lot of different things, personally during the making of this record that I can’t really get into right now but everything has worked itself out and really at the end of the say I’m happy with the result. I’m thinkin’ if you like Down, if Down is your cup so to speak there’s no way we could’ve let you down.”
Down performed a new track titled ‘The Misfortune Teller’ while on tour earlier in the year. The new Down disc is due out later this summer. The band’s tour is currently scheduled to kick off on Sept. 18 in Fort Worth, Texas, and wrap up Oct. 2 in Charlotte, N.C.

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is
always a party following this band. Their energetic sound ignites something in
people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks
watching them were mouthing the words. As they recently got back from touring

popularity. The link below allows you to find where they will be next along

Atlanta-based indie rock trio Mansell has released the official music video for their single "Ghost." The track comes for their latest record Mantra, an eight-song offering that landed in the iTunes Top 100 Alt Chart and led the band to a support slot with Butch Walker earlier this year.
The video was conceptualized by a friend of the band, John Gray. "We all feel like kin to one another, so the understanding and chemistry there on multiple levels was a comfort in letting another artist interpret your music emotionally the way John did," says vocalist Holden Fincher. "He essentially dove into the song for an extensive period, and analyzed it in depth. He would call or we’d be together and he would just say how many times he had really listened to that song to really breathe it in and know it, and we’d discuss every little thing about it. The emotional pulls of the song itself, as well as who we are as artists, and what the project ‘Mantra’ was to us were put …
