PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been listening to Pearl Jam since the very beginning and was the first of my own circle to even know about them thanks to my assisting a popular local radio program when the bands debut album was being introduced to stations such as his. Heck, I even had a strong background in Mother Love Bone where some members hailed. It was a different time in music for sure as a new genre was stepping in and moving other forms of sound aside. That being said, I still never managed to catch Pearl Jam in concert much less cover them as a media person for this here website. I think it would be fun to do that so let’s cross our fingers and see if they announce a US run when the new year arrives. As I close this I wonder how many of you are planning some festival visits based on this news. You can chime in down below in the comments because I’d love to hear from you. See you next time.

Devin Townsend Announces Solo Acoustic Tour For 2019

Fans of “Hevy Devi” might have to change that nickname to “Mello Devi” as the musician has recently announced his Solo Acoustic Tour. The only downside for the fans in the US and A as Borat would say, is that its happening in Europe. I’m sharing the details with you below in my constant effort to expand our readership. Dig in.

The Press Release:
Devin Townsend is pleased to announce a very special European ‘An Evening With’ solo acoustic tour, beginning at the end of March 2019 and running through April. The intimate evenings will feature Devin performing tracks from across his catalogue, as well as taking part in a Q&A where fans will get to know more about what Devin is up to at this stage in his career and the forthcoming new album ‘Empath’. This will prove to be a unique & special experience for all in attendance.

He comments:

Hello everyone, Devin here. I have been busy making my newest recording, EMPATH over the past year. It has been a complicated and enlightening experience in that I have gone back to my roots in terms of what my motivations are for making music, in hopes that I am able to move forward as a musician being as true as I possibly can to my motivations. The result is an album that I am exceptionally proud of, one that is uncompromised and diverse in ways that accurately represent where I’m at now at the age of 46. The past decade of relentless touring with DTP had been something that caught up with me in a big way, and as a result I felt I needed to step back from that world and analyse myself and make this music before stepping onto a stage again. The time has come however for me to take the next step in my career, and when asked about how I would like to do so, I decided the first thing I would do was a very intimate run of shows that allows me to play my music stripped back to just me and a guitar. The shows are at nice venues, and includes a spoken word element with questions from the audience as well as aspects of my entire career represented in this one show.

The Press Release:
GODSMACK have been forced to postpone their upcoming European tour following the unexpected death of the son of guitarist Tony Rombola. Please see the statement below from vocalist/guitarist Sully Erna on behalf of the band:

“With my deepest regrets, and on behalf of our guitarist Tony and his wife Sue, I am personally writing this message to all of our fans worldwide to inform you that Tony and his family have suffered a loss that no parent should ever have to endure.

Tony and Sue’s son Joe Fay passed away last week, unexpectedly, at the young age of 34. He was one of the kindest and most humble guys I had ever met. And most importantly, he was a FAN. Just like all of you. He literally lived the success of Godsmack through his Dad. He was always so excited and proud just to be around all of us, and we will all miss him deeply. As we await more information on how this happened, we humbly ask that you respect Tony and his family’s privacy as they take time to process this and heal.
