Kicked things off with Black Label Society. New album from them, Grimmest Hits (Surprisingly not a Greatest Hits) will be available January 19th, and this is the first single,
“Room Of Nightmares”
Then we took a hard right from that to talk about Justin Timberlake. He has a disc coming out February 2nd called Man of the Woods, and if you didn’t like him before, wait until you hear this very Prince sounding song, “Filthy”
Of course we had to bring up the fact that a band local to us, Breaking Benjamin, finally gave us a taste of their album Ember. No release date just yet, but word around the street is you’ll be able to preorder it on the 26th. The taste came from a song called “Red Cold River”
And finally the Stone Temple Pilots are back! This time with singer Jeff Gutt, who you’d know if you watched Season 2 or 3 of the X-Factor. Man, does he sound like the late, great Scott Weiland. Don’t believe us, check out this tune, “Meadow”
The first came from Everett, Washington where one local nanny caught a package thief in the act, and as the beginning of this video plainly shows, the thief definitely didn’t win.
And in a grosser story from Sacramento; Nemy Baustista didn’t have a thief to worry about, but the Amazon delivery person when she was caught on a security camera “relieving” herself on Nemy’s driveway.
The Stone Temple Pilots have been without a singer since 2015, when Chester Bennington left the band, and have been searching ever since.
Then Tuesday, November 14th happened when they did a last minute show in L.A., revealing Jeff Gutt as the new front man. You probably have no idea who he is, unless you watch The X-Factor, where he was a contestant in 2013.
But it wasn’t just a show they gave us, because right as that was happening, a new song became available for purchase.
It was another Music You Can Use moment on our October 19th, 2017 episode, giving you a listen to some stuff you may want to pick up.
And we started things off with the brand new disc from Chris Jericho’s band, Fozzy, called Judas.
Then it was a surprise to any fan of Maynard James Keenan when his “other band”, A Perfect Circle, dropped a new song on us this week called “The Doomed”. Still no exact date for the new album, but the band is saying it’ll come out sometime next year.
So there you have it. Now get to your local record store, or I-Tunes, and start splurging!
