Presenting Life Of Agony’s Only US Date For 2014

Fans of the band Life Of Agony will likely be spinning in place with excitement as the news about the bands sole US appearance for 2014 taking place at the Starland Ballroom this coming September.

Tour - Life Of Agony - 2014

This will mark what amounts to the second reunion of Life Of Agony who seemed to be all about finished as a touring group over the last couple of years. Drummer Sal has his A Pale Horse Named Death group while Alan Robert has been working on comic book releases. Singer Mina has been doing solo gigs while Joey remains active in his studio working on numerous projects. That being said it’s definitely special when a band that is not currently touring decides to make a special one-off appearance and the Starland Ballroom will be the perfect place for this particular show. Personally speaking I’ve never been more than the casual listener to this particular band but I do know plenty of fans out there who felt that this band spoke to them on numerous levels across their lives with their debut “River Runs Red” and its follow-up “Ugly”. I’ve caught them on various tours a couple of times over the years and can attest to their being able to deliver a solid show. This will clearly be one that their fans remember for a long, long time.

Tickets for this special event of a show will go on sale on July 18th at noon and you can purchase one by clicking HERE

KISS Announces First Ever Vegas Residency For 2014

It was only a matter of time before the revelation of a Las Vegas residency for a band like KISS came to be and I am happy to report that one will be taking place this coming November at a space known as The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. The KISS residency might be following the successful jaunts of this kind by bands such as Motley Crue, Guns N Roses and Def Leppard but now the big guns are taking control and going to give us what we have been waiting for. You can check out the Official Press Copy that I received just moments ago after the super cool poster.

The Press Release:
Genre defining technical death metal giants, ORIGIN, have announced tour dates for their North American headlining tour following their appearance on Summer Slaughter!

“We are excited to announce our first headlining tour in North America since 2012, in full support of our new album Omnipresent,” commented vocalist Jason Keyser. “We will be taking our signature brand of technical death metal savagery to some new cities, as well as some areas neglected by the Summer Slaughter tour, in order to ensure that everyone has a chance to experience the insanity that is a live ORIGIN performance! Joining us on this journey into bedlam will be our brothers in tech-death wizardry, Montreal’s BEYOND CREATION, and the hard thrashin’ metal maniacs in Melbourne’s KING PARROT, as well as ABOLISHMENT OF FLESH and YOUR CHANCE TO DIE on select dates. A line up like this will be a nonstop aural and visual assault from beginning to end, and our goal is to have you remembering it as the show of the summer! See you in the pit! Hail Space!”

“Super excited to present some new material on our ‘All Things Dead’ tour as well as some old favorites,” adds guitarist Paul Ryan. “Plus mix it up with some bands that ‘bring it’ live as well! It will be great to see our friends of old and meet some new faces as well! We will be omnipresent for the rest of 2014 so let’s make a party of it before all things are dead!”
