Earlier today, several websites picked up on the fact that an advertisement running in this month's issue of Revolver featured what appeared to be the official release date from Periphery's new album. The full-page ad also referenced a guest guitar solo from Dream Theater's John Petrucci.
While 1990's Cowboys From a Hell was a radical reinvention for a band that wrote "Ride My Rocket," Vulgar Display of Power was the next logical step in the evolution of Pantera, further refining their signature recipe of equal parts groove and thrash into a piledriving cacophony truly worthy of the tag "vulgar."
It's becoming a different kind of tour for Van Halen. For one thing, it keeps getting longer and longer, which is great news for fans. The band just announced several new dates in August and September, all still in support of their 2012 album, A Different Kind of Truth.
