Grab The Tissues: Morrissey Signs to Harvest Records, Releasing New Album This Year

I’m still trying to decide whether or not there is a double entendre in the headline above.

Legendary vocalist and former Smiths frontman Morrissey announced today that he has signed a record deal with Harvest/Columbia and is currently planning to release an album of new material before the end of the year.

According to a press release issued earlier today, Morrissey will enter the studio in the near future to work on his follow-up to 2009′s Years Of Refusal. It will be produced by Joe Chiccarelli (the White Stripes, Beck, the Strokes), and recorded with his touring band, Boz …

He’s proof you can walk away without losing any respect, and next year his patient fans will finally have the chance to see him perform once more.

Speaking with Good Morning America in a new interview, Garth Brooks revealed he is ready to return to the world of …

BUMMER: The Red Chord Are In A State Of ‘Limbo’

Today has been a pretty wild day for our metal readers. First there was the rumor that Suicide Silence have replaced fallen frontman Mitch Lucker, and now thanks to Facebook we have reason to be concerned about the future of The Red Chord.

Fans of hard rock have likely noticed the prolonged absence of The Red Chord from the music scene. Since vocalist Guy Kozowyk was sworn in as a police officer in the state of New Hampshire back in April the band has essentially been silent as far as updates, plans, and touring is concerned. We tried to reach …

10 Years Later: Cody Votolato Discusses ‘Burn, Piano Island, Burn’

Nostalgia has pretty much overtaken the internet in 2013. From comeback albums, to films, television, and even Tamagotchi, people seem more obsessed than ever with the (relatively) recent past. We thought for a long time about launching a column that celebrated this mutual adoration for days gone by, but in the end decided such a feature would take away from how important certain events and works of art truly are to our community. So instead of bringing to light every notable item to hits the decade mark this year, we’ve decided to highlight only a select few, …
