Animals as Leaders Announce Spring 2022 US Tour

19th January 2022 | Category: Concerts

Animals as Leaders will embark on a spring US tour in support of their upcoming album The Parrhesia, arriving March 29th.

There will be a full night of music at each concert, with Animals as Leaders performing two sets: a full-album run-through of The Parrhesia and another featuring songs from their back catalogue.

The trek begins with a stop in Denver on March 30th and runs through an April 22nd date in Los Angeles. 

So far the group has shared two tracks from upcoming The Parrhesia, the group’s first studio LP since 2016. Singles “Monomyth” and “The Problem of Other Minds” both see Animals as Leaders in full prog mode as they further expand on their signature instrumental sound.

“It’s been a while since we’ve released a body of work,” guitarist Tosin Abasi said in the initial press release for the LP. “We’re really proud of this collection of songs as well as the visual components, and are excited to share it with all of you.”

Animals as Leaders started out as a solo outlet for Abasi, whose creative partnership with classically trained guitarist Javier Reyes and Berklee-educated drummer Matt Garstka is built on a shared love of everything from fusion to technical death metal. Garstka graced the cover of Modern Drummer in 2015.

In one of his many appearances on their cover, Guitar World named Tosin among the Guitarists Of The Decade. Rolling Stone featured him as part of their “Young Guns” series. The Chicago Tribune declared him “the closest thing prog-metal has to an Eddie Van Halen.” Kerrang! included their album “Weightless” among its Best Albums of 2011. “The Joy Of Motion” entered the Billboard 200 at No. 24 in 2014, and “The Madness Of Many” cracked the Top 20 in 2016. Now more than a decade into their career, a quick look at the bands they’ve toured with demonstrates the consistently diverse appeal of Animals as Leaders. It’s a list that includes Korn, Deftones, Thrice, Meshugga, Underoath, as well as major festivals with the likes of Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, and Slipknot.

The Eagles Add String of New Dates to US ‘Hotel California’ Tour

15th January 2022 | Category: Concerts

The Eagles have added a string of new dates to the US leg of their upcoming ‘Hotel California’ tour.

The legendary group – comprising Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – announced back in November that they would be heading out on the road in celebration of their 1976 album ‘Hotel California’.

Now they unveiled a number of new stops in Cleveland, Chicago, Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Columbus, Buffalo, Belmont Park, Houston, Nashville, Tulsa, and Salt Lake City.

Each stop will feature a choir and an orchestra accompanying the veteran rockers for a run-through of the iconic album before an interval followed by a set of the band’s greatest hits.

In October, Eagles confirmed huge shows across the UK and Europe as part of their ‘Fifty Years’ tour. 

Eagles will join Elton John, Pearl Jam, Duran Duran, and more at BST Hyde Park 2022.

Before the COVID pandemic, the group had set out plans to return to the UK in the summer of 2021 to bring their ‘Hotel California’ tour to London’s Wembley Stadium for two nights.

The announcement came after the rockers played the album in its entirety for the first time ever at three sold-out shows in Las Vegas in September of 2019. The show featured 77 musicians on stage, including a 46-piece orchestra and 22-strong choir.

Eagles, alongside Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses, and Green Day, were among the bands to receive PPP loans from the US federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program during the COVID crisis last year.

Soulfly Announce Spring 2022 U.S Tour Dates

27th December 2021 | Category: Concerts

Metal band Soulfly have announced a 2022 U.S. tour with support from 200 Stab Wounds. 

Soulfly’s lineup will consist of Max Cavalera and his son Zyon, along with Mike Leon on bass and Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares on guitar.

After over a month on tour, Soulfly will perform live for the Tribe again beginning Feb. 7 in Las Vegas. The tour will run throughout the U.S. and finish up March 19 in Gallup, New Mexico. Tour support is TBA along with 200 Stab Wounds on certain dates.

Max Cavalera commented:

“I’m more than thrilled to kick off the New Year with a tour! We will be playing songs from our upcoming new release!” 

This will be their first tour since the Pandemic, as the last time they tried to tour the tour was unable to go through because of covid-19. They were able to play at a festival in 2021 when they performed at Judas Priest’s Warlando Metal Fest. 

In a June 2020 interview on Kazakhstan’s “Armatura” podcast, Cavalera confirmed that he had been “writing some riffs” for the twelfth Soulfly album. He said, “I’m very inspired right now for riffs and music. I listen to a lot of heavy stuff. So I’ve been composing new Soulfly music, hopefully for next year. So I think next year we’ll have a new Soulfly record.” In a May 2021 interview with Finland’s Kaaos TV, Cavalera further reiterated the album’s progress and confirmed that it will likely not be released before 2022: 

“We’re just working on it. We’re still just developing it. It’s in the early stages of being recorded. We recorded some, and we have to record a little bit more. But we’re just really taking our time.”

Soulfly also dismissed band member Marc Rizzo earlier this year for personal reasons, although Rizzo claims that the band offered no support to band members or crew during the pandemic. His replacement on the 2021 North American tour would be Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares.

Earl Sweatshirt to Kick Off 2022 with ‘Sick!’ U.S. Tour

25th December 2021 | Category: Concerts

Earl Sweatshirt has announced “Sick!,” his latest album since 2018’s “Some Rap Songs.”

Supported by the single “Tabula Rasa” featuring Armand Hammer, the album is inspired by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns. The artist also revealed he was previously working on another album titled “The People Could Fly,” but changed directions upon realizing new restrictions in the wake of the pandemic.

In a statement, Earl Sweatshirt said:

“Sick! is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns. Before the virus I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life. People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air. Peace and love to Zelooperz the enigma, the Armand Hammer, and my good friends Alchemist and Black Noi$e. Peace and love to u.”

Sweatshirt has also just announced a joint tour with Action Bronson that starts shortly after the album’s release on January 29th and goes through March. The ÑBA Leather World Tour will cover the U.S. and Canada before heading to Europe for summer festivals in June. 

The rapper prefaced this release with single “2010”, a track that shows a more hopeful tone for Earl and highlights his artistic growth while staying true to his style.

“Sick!” by Earl Sweatshirt is scheduled for release Jan. 14, 2022.
