July 12, 2010 | Posted by Ben Czajkowski

Rock News For All You Newbs

Well, in my absence, the Internet blew up with rumors that Breaking Benjamin had broken up. Well, turns out that those rumors are allegedly false. The following is a statement from Benjamin Burnley on what is really going on:

Hey everyone, Benjamin here. I am officially letting everyone know that Breaking Benjamin has NOT broken up! This is just a false rumor that, through the miracle of modern technology, has unfortunately spread.

I am currently taking some time off from touring to further address some health issues that I have been dealing with for some years now which has been posted previously on the shallow bay website and expressed in many recent interviews. I am performing two solo acoustic shows in July but this in no way means that I have left, or am ever going to leave, Breaking Benjamin.

In closing I’d like to thank our incredible fans for their concern. The only thing that I ask is for everyone to not believe any rumors you hear on the Internet especially when it does not come directly from the band. We hope that our fans know that we love them and are forever grateful of their continuing support.


Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd released a solo album on July 6 entitled The Wild Trapeze. It is available as a digital download exclusively from iTunes or as a physical disc that will be made available for order on the band’s official site.  A video for the first single “Runaway Train” can be viewed below.



Ill Nino is putting the final touches on their Victory Records debut, which has been titled Dead New World. The record is due out this fall. Below is a studio update from drummer Dave Chavarri:

We wanted to inform you, on our progress recording the new CD!! Ill Niño has been working around the clock writing and jamming every day, and the new songs are coming out fuckin nuts!! After much thought, we have decided to title our new CD ‘Dead New World’. Our new CD is everything you expect from Ill Niño’s original Latin Metal sounds; it’s heavy as fuck, full of Cristian growling vocals, melodic choruses, Tribal Latin rhythms, sick guitars, as well as also being the most progressive record we’ve ever recorded!!!

We have never put out the same CD twice, and our Victory Records release ‘Dead New World’ will prove that once again. We will be touring throughout 2010 and 2011, so joins us in our ‘Dead New World.’-Dave Chavarri



Disturbed‘s new record, Asylum, was pushed back one week and is now due in stores on August 31. Track listing for Asylum is as follows:

1. “Remnants”2. “Asylum”3. “The Infection”4. “Warrior”5. “Another Way To Die”6. “Never Again”7. “The Animal”8. “Crucified”9. “Serpentine”10. “My Child”11. “Sacrifice”12. “Innocence”

The band will share the main stage of the Rockstar Uproar Festival this summer with Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour, Halestorm.



Revis delayed their new album Fire & Ice, which was set to be released on July 27. The band will be adding two additional tracks to the album which is now due out in mid to late August.


The Smashing Pumpkins made their new single “Freak” available as a free download on their website. The track will be included on their upcoming Teargarden By Kaleidyscope Volume 2: The Solstice Bare EP, which is due out later in the year.



Sepultura signed on with Nuclear Blast Records for the release of their next album. The release is due out in 2011.


Staind plans to begin work on a new album in November. Front-man Aaron Lewis is set to release his first solo album later this year. And it has a country vibe to it. “It’s acoustic guitar based and I recorded it in Nashville with a bunch of country session musicians,” he says. “So it’s kind of somewhere between country and James Taylor and ‘It’s Been A While.'” No release date is set, but the first single is “Country Boy”, featuring country legends Hank Williams Jr., George Jones and Charlie Daniels. “I’ve got to say that ‘Country Boy’ is definitely in the stylings of [Hank Jr.’s] ‘Country Boy Can Survive’,” he says. “I’m not going to try and deny that correlation.”


Trapt will release No Apologies on September 14. The first single from the album, “Sound Off”, can be heard here.


All That Remains titled their new album For We Are Many. A September release is expected.


Mutiny Within announced the addition of drummer Chad Anthony to their line-up. Anthony replaces Bill Fore who recently split with the group.


TRUSTcompany announced the addition of new bassist Chris Harvey.  The band is currently working on their new album which is due out in October.


Pantera‘s 1990 release, Cowboys From Hell, is set to be reissued on September 14. The 20th Anniversary edition will be available in both a two and three CD expanded edition as well as a three disc deluxe box set. All three versions will include a previously unreleased demo titled “The Will to Survive”. Additional details will be confirmed shortly.


Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee provided an update that the band is taking an unscheduled break from the studio citing potential issues with the label, Wind-Up.  Below is the statement from Amy:

Hey guys, I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on. We’ve taken some time out of the studio to get our heads into the right creative space, work on the songs and even write some more music. Terry and I spent a little time together this month working in Jacksonville, kinda like we did before we recorded The Open Door, and the whole band is getting together to jam this week. My record label has been going through some very uncertain times, as are many record labels, and that’s made things a little unclear….we really want to make sure the whole machine is working together when it’s time to put out the album. We are focusing on what we do best: making music. We’ll be back in the studio recording the album soon enough. I think that it can only be stronger for this extra time we’re putting into it, and we will all be better for the hurdles in the end. Thank you, again and always, for being such patient and loyal fans- I believe in this music and I can’t wait to share it with you.




Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster is planning a digital deluxe version of their latest album III for a future release. The new version of the effort will feature the two new bonus tracks “Where The Saints Roam” and “Cheap Thrills Cost The Most” along with the video for the bands track, “Step Up (I’m On It)”.


Funeral For A Friend set The Young And Defenseless as the title to their forthcoming new EP, which is due out later this year. The effort will feature the following track listing:

01 – “Serpents In Solitude”02 – “Sixteen”03 – “Damned If You Do, Dead If You Don’t”04 – “Vultures”

The band offered the following on the effort:

“The name of the EP is The Young And Defenceless and it pretty much sums up the way the world is going: blind ignorance and a lot of too little too late. These songs are a call to arms, a ‘fuck you’ in the face of those who dare sit on their asses and watch everything around them turn to shit.

There’s a lot of attitude and a lot of anger and it shows, not just in the amazing artwork by our friend Rianne Rowlands who has pulled out all the stops with her incredible art, but in these 4 ass kicking songs. If you like aggression then you’ve got it, if you like heart on your sleeve emotional power then you’ve got that too. This is just the start, there’s more to come just over that horizon.”


The Sword set the track listing to their new album Warp Riders:

01 – “Acheron/Unearthing The Orb”02 – “Tres Brujas”03 – “Arrows In The Dark”04 – “The Chronomancer I: Hubris”05 – “Lawless Lands”06 – “Astraea’s Dream”07 – “The Warp Riders”08 – “Night City”09 – “The Chronomancer II: Nemesis”10 – “(The Night The Sky Cried) Tears Of Fire”

The album will see an August 24 release. The group is preparing a hexagon shaped 12″ single for their track “(The Night Sky Cried) Tears Of Fire” and will also be releasing an official live bootleg of their July 3 performance at the “iTunes Roundhouse Festival” in London, England later next month.


Filter is eyeing a tentative August 17 release for their new album The Trouble With Angels.


Dimmu Borgir set Abrahadabra as the title to their new album, which is slated to receive an October 12 North American release. According to a new press release for the effort, the title roughly translates into “I will create as I speak” and first publicly appeared in Chapter III of Liber AL vel Legis (commonly referred to as The Book of the Law) written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904. Elaborating on the new album a bit more, band frontman Shagrath offered the following:

“After eleven months of total focus, dedication and professional team work, Darkness has been reborn. Some people have expressed their concern about the future of the band since the departure of some members of the clan. Let me assure you that things happen for a reason. The black flame burns brighter than ever before. With the mixture of our different musical preferences and the personalities involved, I will dare to say we have created a BEAST, the most detailed work to date out of our 17 years of existence. I know it’s too much of a cliché to brag when you have a done a new album, but to put it short and simple, it’s a fist in the face to all the doubters out there. Forward – Onward – March… ENTER THE SUPREME UNKNOWN.”

For now, the cover art for the effort has been unveiled and can be seen over at the bands Myspace.


August Burns Red is planning a September 28 release for their new live CD/DVD outing that carries the tentative title of Home. The group recently filmed the footage for the effort at a June 4, 2010, show in Manheim, PA.



Death Angel set Relentless Retribution as the title to their new album which will see a September 14 North American release. The group recorded the outing earlier this year with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Chimaira). For now, the cover art for the release can be previewed over at the group’s Myspace.


Linkin Park will release their new Rick Rubin (Metallica, Audioslave) produced album, A Thousand Suns, on September 14.

“Our albums are the foundation of who we are as a band, and reserving a spot for a fan to play on one of our songs felt like a way to show our dedication to them,” Mike Shinoda said. “Our fans continually energize us with their creativity and dedication, so I think they’re going to come up with something great.”

The first single “The Catalyst” is set to impact radio on August 2.


Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine commented on his experiences touring with the “big four” (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax) overseas:

“So now that the Big Four dates have come and gone, I feel it is time to check-in, say, “Hello” and tell you what has been going on in my world.

First off, when we left San Marcos and Mustaine Music Studios aka ‘Vic’s Garage,’ we had no idea what to expect, other than the fact that we wanted to make a point; we wanted to make the other bands feel comfortable, we wanted the fans to all leave this momentous occasion feeling completely satiated, we wanted the guys in Metallica to know that we could be depended on to pull our share…

I don’t know if we delivered for everyone, but for the tens of thousands of people each night, and ultimately hundreds of thousands of fans over the entire run of the Big Four festivals (affectionately dubbed “Sonisphere”), it seemed to me that the fans were finally able to put aside the silly stuff that the press has kept on life support for so many, many years. We did several round-table interviews with a member from each camp of the Big Four, and one thing that was a constant and that we all agreed on was that the press was the responsible parties for keeping the feuds alive.

You heard it straight from our mouths; we are all at peace with one another, and we all are friends. End of story – or in other words, several shit magazines will now have to learn how to write real interviews, reviews, and features, instead of causing so much turmoil with us four, all in the spirit of selling their publications.”




Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels) and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross are finishing up work on a score for the film, “The Social Network“. Reznor offered the following on his work for the film:

“I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn’t work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook.

I’ve always loved David‘s work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on.

Months later, I’m happy to tell you we’re nearing the completion of this and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable.

As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we’re looking forward to the next phase – distilling the large amount of music we’ve written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that.Speaking of the film… it’s really fucking good. And dark!”

Avenged Sevenfold is  offering a bonus demo version of their track “Nightmare” to those who pre-order the limited edition “Book Of Nightmares” version of their new album Nightmare through the band’s website. The drumming on the song was done by late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.

Band guitarist Zacky Vengeance offered the following on the track:

“A very special gift awaits those who have ordered the limited “Book of Nightmares“. Our gift to you is a moment of time that can never be repeated. The demo version of the song Nightmare* as it was before the Nightmare became real. This is the finished demo featuring Jimmy on drums.

He was so proud of this and it is only fair that we let you hear it the way he played it. I also understand that not everyone can afford these and since they are nearly sold out as we speak not everyone will have a chance to order one. So I ask that those who were fortunate to get these please share this song with your friends and fellow fans because it is magical and I believe everyone of our fans is entitled to this.

*this is the rough demo featuring Jimmy on an electronic drumkit. Left as it was before he was able to solidify his drumming in the studio.”

Nightmare will see a release on July 27.
