Motley Crue Announces “The Final Tour” for 2014

Just over two weeks ago this rather cryptic and dramatic graphic arrived in my email here at the PiercingMetal Command HQ regarding the band Motley Crue from their record label and while I could have posted something about it for you fine readers at that immediate time, I decided to wait until the date that the official scoop was at hand to do it so it had more meat and potatoes and got right to the point of what we all wanted to learn……

Sonata Arctica Will Bring “Pariah’s Child” To The USA In 2014

The winter cold is in full sway and we are already getting more snow that we bargained for here on the East Coast but the news about Finland’s own Sonata Arctica returning to our shores for a tour just warms my Metal heart to its very core. Speaking personally, I have been a fan of Sonata Arctica’s music for a few years longer than I have been doing my Metal Music Scribe thing. They impressed me and when I finally met up with them for interview stuff during a performance at B.B. King Blues Club many moons ago, the level of support increased. Check out the press release below their logo.

That said, it seems as though the band Alesana will be embarking on what they call “The Decade Tour”; Here is the poster….
