Danish metal band Volbeat have announced that their upcoming album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, will be released April 9. The band also has announced that former Anthrax and The Damned Things guitarist Rob Caggiano has officially joined Volbeat.
Last night at Revolver and Guitar World's 2nd Annual Rock & Roll Roast, a host of rockers and comedians took aim at Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, firing a nonstop barrage of barbs and one-liners that would make an ordinary man cry. But, as last night's endless stream of insults and anecdotes made perfectly clear, Snider is not a normal man.
Get ready! Guitar World and Revolver's Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider takes place tonight, January 24, at the Grove in Anaheim, California. The Twisted Sister frontman, and this year's venerable Roast honoree, was recently named one of the 100 greatest living rock stars by Revolver magazine.
The show must go on, and in the wake of lead guitarist Rob Caggiano's departure from Anthrax, the band have just announced that Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais will be filling in during the band's upcoming Metal Alliance tour dates.
"There are so many different fuckers up here jamming, it could be a clusterfuck," says a very sweaty Philip Anselmo, pointing at the audience in an accusatory fashion after he and a pantheon of metal giants finish playing a hyper-charged rendition of Pantera's "Mouth for War" at the Metal Masters concert in New York this past Friday night, September 7.
