PiercingMetal Thoughts: I must admit that I am not what can be considered a “diehard” follower of any of these bands but I do like a handful of tunes from each of them and have seen them all in action over the years of my music scribe adventures. As a matter of fact, American Head Charge was one of the earliest shows that I went to as a member of the music press. It’s going to be a room full of movement when this show hits the Times Square venue B.B. King’s which is the stop nearest me so I will be aiming at being there to support the fun. What do you readers think about this tour? You can let me know in the comments section below so we know where your own head is at. Thanks for reading.

GWAR to Embark Upon the “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014”

In music, I guess the only way to press on in life is to press on with life and when the news about Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus had finally sunk in, the world wondered what would become of the rest of the Scumdogs Of The Universe. Read on down below to find out just where they all are standing. I’ll be back with closing thoughts at the end.

The Press Release:
Oderus is missing. Once the Scumdogs in GWAR finally notice this (it takes them a while to notice stuff) they will set off on a journey to find their departed brother using every resource available – including recruiting an ancient Scumdog warrior. GWAR will need the help from everyone, even the lowliest Bohab, as their enemies are plotting to take advantage of the hole in GWAR’s ranks.

BalSac The Jaws of Death on The “GWAR Eternal Tour 2014” and what to expect:

“Dark clouds of war and ill omen have gathered around GWAR. In our hour of greatest peril, Oderus has left us and our enemies stand poised, ready to strike while they sense weakness. But we shall no longer cower in our Antarctic stronghold, awaiting Destiny’s final blow. This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader’s favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: ‘Where is Oderus Urungus?'”

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra Brings “The Christmas Attic” To 2014

Logo - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

We might be in the throes of a blazing summer at the moment but that is all the more reason to share the announcement about the Winters greatest concert experience which is none other than The Trans-Siberian Orchestra. For the past two year’s the orchestra has presented “The Lost Christmas Eve” to fans across the country and now it is time to debut “The Christmas Attic”. Fans of the group will recall that this is the title of their second album and it has never been presented in full even though we would find songs peppered into the set list during other shows. The tour banner is below for your enjoyment and then comes all of the dates on the run. Be sure to get a pencil and paper ready or just use your mobile device since no one seems to write anything down anymore. Here we go.
