The folks in the band Hellyeah have unveiled their brand new video for their song “333” and the cooking track had this clip filmed in Duffs Bar which is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Let’s check it out and offer up some opinion about the clip afterwards.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Speaking of the clip primarily I had to say that I liked this one a lot since it was done in a popular local establishment that is known for catering to the Metal Legions. The clip flips back and forth to shots of Chad walking the mean streets of Brooklyn to clips inside the popular bar where the fans in attendance surround the players (Kyle, Tom and Christian) and look to be having an excellent time. They turned this around quick as it wasn’t too long ago I saw a call to arms across the Metalheads of NYC to come to the famous bar for a video filming. The track is rather good and at times cooks at a great velocity. The drumming on the track and of course the album is the last recorded work by the late great Vinnie Paul who we lost back in 2018. As the song plays we see representations of Paul around the bar and the songs video closes with a respectful memorial to him. He will be missed for sure and was a larger than life personality for the Metal scene. The song itself moves along rather quickly and while it is named “333” it also runs for three minutes and thirty three seconds. Coincidence? I think not. I’ll aim for discussing the musicality of the track soon so stay tuned for that. Let’s all try to rally behind the track in honor of Vinnie Paul.
With the holiday closing in on us, the season seems to have opened up the floodgates on the 2019 tour packages to come. Here are the upcoming plans by Papa Roach…

Hey Fiends, we are back once more with another touring announcement and this one features the guys in From Ashes To New. Take a look and please do so from the comfort of your air-conditioned home or office since its brutally hot and humid out there. Well, it is in NYC at least which is where we hang our media hat. I made the mistake of heading out on some errands and I couldn’t wait to get back home.
The Press Release:
Today, From Ashes to New have announced headlining tour dates, adding to their extensive fall schedule. The 16-date headline run will feature support from Badflower, Dead Girls Academy, and Killakoi. Pre-sale tickets with VIP packages are available now at FATN.soundrink.com.
The story of From Ashes to New is truly that of pursuing a dream regardless of the obstacles that may arise. The band’s debut album Day One earned the band a Top 10 track at Active Rock radio with the single “Through It All”. Following an extensive album cycle, the band’s original drummer and co-vocalist both abruptly left the band. Rather than focusing on the setbacks, From Ashes to New forged ahead with a new energy and purpose. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based band, now comprised of frontman/rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, vocalist Danny Case, and drummer Mat Madiro (Trivium) released their sophomore album, The Future earlier this year. The lead single, “Crazy” has seen the band return to the top of the Active Rock radio charts, where it currently is holding the #2 position.

Though the date on the press release I received was marked as being from the end of June, today is the first time I am seeing it and that makes me hope that its all news to you as well since I’m sharing it in our Tours and Festivals area. Let’s take a look shall we?
The Press Release:
Today, veteran scene rockers Escape the Fate and Slaves have announced the Beautiful Human Tour. This 31-date co-headlining tour will also feature Famous Last Words, Picturesque and Set To Stun as support across North America.
“The boys and I are very excited to share the road with these amazing bands – including Slaves. I have known Jonny for a long time and we haven’t had the chance to tour together for over a decade!” says Escape The Fate vocalist Craig Mabbitt, “I can’t wait to share our new record with our fans with a full set. Do NOT miss this one”
Artist: Bad Wolves Title: “Zombie” Acoustic (Single) Label: Eleven Seven Music Release Date: 5/25/2018 Genre: Acoustic Rock Rating: 4.5/5
What’s that saying again? “So nice they did it twice” – I think that is the line or something else very close to it. Whatever the exact verbiage might be, the thought I am getting at is the fact that the brand new band Bad Wolves have achieved a level of bombastic success with their cover of The Cranberries song “Zombie” that was released as a single in memory of that bands singer Dolores O’Riordan. At the point of this writing the world at large still does NOT know the cause of the singers passing which is a shame. Now the Bad Wolves version of the song was nothing less than jarring and powerful and after I listened a few times was added to the content of our website on a summary you can examine HERE. The other day the band issued an acoustic version of the track and here are my thoughts about it. Continue reading “Zombie” Acoustic (Single) by Bad Wolves→
