Reunited GUNS N' ROSES Reveals Cities For North American Tour GUNS N' ROSES will embark on a 21-city North American tour to follow the previously announced run of six comeback shows, the band has confirmed. Shows will take place this summer in the following cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Toronto and Washington, D.C. Exact dates and venue details have not yet been announced. The confirmation of a full tour follows reports that GUNS N' ROSES billboards spring up around the country earlier today, fueling speculation that an announcement was imminent. GUNS N' ROSES has six concerts scheduled so far, all in April: two at the Coachella Music And Arts Festival, two in Las Vegas and two in Mexico City. The exact band lineup has yet to be confirmed beyond singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan, although it is almost certain that keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer are on board as well. Original members Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler don't appear to be involved in the gigs, but Adler's solo band abruptly canceled a show at the Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles on April 1, with the venue tweeting, "Stay tuned for a big announcement! #GunsNRoses." There is now speculation about a guest appearance by Adler with GUNS. The last show Axl and Slash played together was on July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires. The latest incarnation of GUNS N' ROSES, which only included Axl from the original lineup, played a residency in Las Vegas in 2014, but has remained silent since. 3

According to Billboard, the GUNS reunion — which sources say has been in the works for two years — is asking for anywhere from $3 million to $5 million a show. Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson to Perform on 'American Idol' Finale As the granddaddy of television's modern singing competitions, American Idol, prepares to crown the 15th and final Idol in its history, the show's two most successful discoveries, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, return to help bid it goodbye. The series' three-night grand finale is set to kick off Tuesday, April 5th on Fox, with a 90-minute retrospective special titled American Idol: American Dream, with current and former Idol judges (including original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson), past contestants, host Ryan Seacrest and many of the show's behind-the-scenes team sharing personal memories, previously unrevealed stories and reflections on what the show has meant to them. On Wednesday night, April 6th, the show's last-ever vote will take place as the remaining finalists battle it out live from L.A.'s Dolby Theatre, and on Thursday, April 7th at 8:00 p.m. ET live (tape-delayed PT), Underwood and Clarkson will both perform as part of the final episode. Also slated to return to the show are Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington, Josh Gracin, Danny Gokey, and many of the other finalists and contestants from throughout the show's long run. The final episode will conclude with the crowning of the show's last-ever American Idol. Kelly Clarkson, who was the first Idol winner in 2002, recently returned to the show to perform her Top Ten single, "Piece By Piece." Carrie Underwood, who is currently on her Storyteller Tour, was the show's season-four victor in 2005, and is ranked as the top-earning Idol contestant of

all time. Country superstar Keith Urban has been an Idol judge since 2012. The final episode of American Idol airs live, Thursday, April 7th, at 8:00 p.m. on Fox.

Justin Timberlake Collaborates With Little Big Town Four months ago, members of Little Big Town watched as Justin Timberlake shared a pair of show-stealing duets with Chris Stapleton during the 2015 CMA Awards. This week, the vocal group is teaming up with Timberlake for a songwriting session. While details about the collaboration remain scarce, Timberlake's partnership with Little Big Town adds another country-leaning bullet point to a resume that already includes a duet with Garth Brooks during a Nashville concert in December 2014. A Memphis native and longtime country music fan, Timberlake released a version of his song "Drink You Away" to country radio last November, a few days after his CMA appearance. The song originally appeared on 2013's The 20/20 Experience, meaning the singer is due for a new album. Meanwhile, the members of Little Big Town are presumably gathering material for their follow-up to 2014's Pain Killer. The band will be touring heavily this year, too, kicking off a multi-month trek on April 7th in Charleston, West Virginia.

Dolly Parton, Katy Perry to Duet on ACM Awards The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards will get a double dose of superstar power when Dolly Parton teams up with pop singer Katy Perry for a duet performance on the April 3rd telecast. It will be Parton's first time performing with Perry, and the pair is expected to sing two Parton classics, including "Coat of Many Colors." "She got the big idea, 'Why don't we sing 'Jolene' together?' Because she loves that song and since it's going to be one of the [television] movies I go, 'Yeah, why not?'" Parton tells Rolling Stone Country. "So I'm going to try to combine 'Coat of Many Colors' and 'Jolene.'"

Additionally, Parton's work on the biographical film Coat of Many Colors has earned her the ACM's Tex Ritter Award, presented to a movie released in the previous year that features country music. "To be up there with the great stories like Coal Miner's Daughter and O Brother and Walk the Line, it's like you say, 'Wow, all those were feature films, and this one was just a movie of the week on television,'" Parton says of the NBC TV-movie, which premiered in December to a record audience. Parton recently announced a new album, Pure and Simple With Dolly's Biggest Hits, and an extensive tour to follow. She and Perry join previously announced ACM Awards performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton and many others. The 51st ACM Awards air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 3rd, at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

The Go-Go's Recruit Best Coast & Kaya Stewart for Summer Farewell Tour Rock legends the Go-Go's will unite this summer for a month-long farewell tour. Four members of the band's classic line-up – singer Belinda Carlisle, guitarist Jane Wiedlin, multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Caffey and drummer Gina Schock – will play 18 dates throughout North America, starting August 2nd in Clearwater, Florida and concluding August 30th in Los Angeles. Indie-rock act Best Coast and singer-songwriter Kaya Stewart will open select dates throughout. "After a 38-year run, we are gearing up for one last blast of a summer tour," the band said in a statement announcing the trek. "We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can't wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud, fast music and a great party!" The band reunited for multiple tours in subsequent decades and released one more LP, 2001's God Bless the Go-Go's. Their most recent jaunt concluded in July 2014.

Best known for forming several bands including Bad Company, Free and The Firm. Singer, songwriter and guitarist for the last four decades and best known for songs like, "Feel Like Makin’ Love," "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" and "All Right Now," Paul Rodgers has been cited by dozens of rock groups and musicians as a major influence. Full Access had a chance to talk to Paul about his upcoming tours, both solo and with Bad Company. We asked Paul with his career being almost 50 years, where is the Fountain of Youth for him. Paul said, "That's quite and interesting question actually, because, I mean, we all grow old. It's one of the things that happens and no one can stop that. It's a beautiful thing in its own way, because we gain experience as we go through. I find for me that I feel very young because of music. Music gives me so much joy and so much pleasure and it's constantly very creative. And it demands a lot of from me too, in terms of when you go on stage. You just got to be ready for the show, so I do a lot of preparation. And I think that's what keeps me vibrant. I have great passion for music. I'm writing songs all the time, even putting a set list together for my solo show is a fascinating thing, because it's kind of like the story of my life in many respects. I've been a songwriter for all the bands that

I have formed. So when I put a solo show together I can mix and match. Things I wrote for Bad Company, like ‘Shooting Star,’ I can mix with something I wrote with The Firm with Jimmy Page, like ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’ and ‘Radioactive.’ And I have songs from the Free days, like ‘Mr Big’ or ‘Wishing Well,’ and it makes for a unique set." We asked Paul how much pressure does he feel to follow up one of this previous projects and he responded, “I’m very proud of what I've done and what we’ve done with the various bands, so I don’t feel pressure. I like to push all together to please the audience. I like a happy crowd, it makes me happy when they’re happy. And I tend to focus on the songs I think everybody’s going to like ‘Feel Like Makin’ Love’ and ‘Shooting Star.’ And also I try to put something new in all the time, keep moving forward.” Paul tells us that touring with Queen was fantastic and a fascinating experience, because usually, I don't join bands, I always formed bands. I formed Free with Paul Kossoff, I formed Bad Company with Mick Ralphs and I formed The Firm with Jimmy Page. Queen was the first actual existing band with its own catalogue of songs and hits that I actually joined forces with. So from that point of view, I was replacing

Freddie Mercury, in many of the songs. So I got to feel what it felt like to be Freddie in the center of the stage. When they were doing Radio Ga Ga, you have the whole crowd, some 60,000 people, it's a very warm place to be and it was a beautiful experience. I loved it actually. They performed my songs incredibly well. We did a number of my songs, we did ‘All Right Now,’ ‘Bad Company,’ ‘Wishing Well,’ and many more. They did a fantastic job on those and it was a great experience, but I think in the end, ultimately, I didn't like the long tours and I wanted to get back to my own music.” Out of Pauls tremendous catalogue, we asked him if he could pick a favorite song and he says, “It varies day to day, but I love ‘Shooting Star.’ It's a great stage song. That's my song today.” Paul has worked with so many artists and says he has loved every person that he has worked with. On his Blues album, he did a tribute to Muddy Waters and had worked with Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Slash, Brian May and many of great, great artists. Paul said, "Recently I did something for Jimmy Page. They were giving him an award at the EMP in Seattle. That's the Experience Music Project. Paul Allen invited me and other musicians to play. Rich Robinson was there from the Black Crowes, Duff McKagan from Guns N' Roses, and Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick. We were all doing this big jam session and everybody was playing Led Zeppelin songs to honor Jimmy Page and I played a couple of songs that we had written together in The Firm, ‘Radioactive’ and ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed.’ So, one way or another I've worked with pretty much everyone.” He paused for a moment and said, "Oh except maybe Jimi Hendrix!" We asked Paul how it feels knowing that your bands have influenced so many musicians and he replied, “It’s incredible

actually, the amount of people that tell me that they're influenced by Free, for instance. I mean, Free, we didn't really break hugely worldwide, but we had one big hit, ‘All Right Now,’ but there's a lot of depth to the band and a lot of different songs and bands discovered that. I know The Black Crowes did a couple of Free songs and Lynyrd Skynyrd were extremely influenced by what we did in those days. It's nice to be appreciated, it's wonderful!" Looking back on history, we asked Paul if he could go back and change anything, what would he change. He said,"I don't think I would change anything. There's been ups and downs, I think everybody has in their life. Life is something of a roller coaster, but I think that the good times you learn from and you also learn from the tough times. I don't think I'd change anything actually. Light and shade is always welcome." Some of Paul Rodgers influences have been a lot of great singers, a lot of black blues and soul artists like Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, John Lee Hooker, Sam and Dave, Aretha Franklin, B.B.King, Howlin' Wolfe and Albert King. Paul said, “All those guys, they had something. They sang with a kind of raw passion and intensity that I thought, ‘wow, how do they do that?’ So those people influenced me. And Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker and Robert Plant. Those great singers have inspired me. And I still listen to those guys and love them.” Pauls biggest personal accomplishment to date is his grandchildren. He says, “I love them to pieces. I have three grandchildren and they're just, you know, they're my heart and soul. It's something inside you that absolutely melts when you see your grandkid. I mean, you love your kids and that's one level of love, but grandkids, it just takes it to a whole new level. It's such a beautiful thing.”

Paul Rodgers will be headlining the 80’s Rock Fest at Markham Park in Sunrise on April 3rd. Paul Rodgers will also perform with Bad Company in Tampa at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater on May 28th, along with Joe Walsh. Full Access Magazine

Based out of Red Lion, Pennsylvania Halestorm is comprised of brother-sister duo Lzzy Hale (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboards, piano) and Arejay Hale (drums, percussion, backing vocals), along with Joe Hottinger (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, backing vocals) and Josh Smith (bass guitar, keyboards, backing vocals). Think back to when you were kid. Did you imagine being up on stage performing your original material live at that point of your life? Not only did Lzzy and Arejay imagine it, but they were doing it at 13 and 10 years old respectively, in 1997. These siblings haven't looked back since. After Joe (2003) and Josh (2004) joined the band, all the pieces fell into place. By June of 2005, they had signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. While with Atlantic, 2005 to present, they have been busy with their discography, proving there is no shortage of material in the Halestorm library with EP’s “One and Done” (April 2006), “Reanimate” (March 2011), “Hello, It's Mz. Hyde” (January 2012), “In the Live Room” (November 2012) and “Reanimate 2.0” (October 2013), their live CD/DVD “Live in Philly 2010” (November 2010) and three full length studio efforts “Self-Titled” (April 2009), “The Strange Case Of… (April 2012) and “Into the Wild Life” (April 2015). If their

nine releases aren't enough, they are known to play upwards of 250 live shows per year. I was lucky enough to catch up with Lzzy and Joe while they took a few minutes to breathe before stepping on to the stage in support of “Into the Wild Life,” which hit #1 on Billboard’s “US Albums,” “US Alternative Albums” and “US Hard Rock Albums” charts. While Lzzy has been in Halestorm for well more than half of her life and Joe for quite along run, its obvious the chemistry is there. As Lzzy tells me that this has obviously been her only band that she has ever been in and it will probably be her last. She looks to Joe and says this better be his last also with a laugh. Joe says, “This has been the third band I have been apart of, but nothing else has even come close to this level. But I think it's safe to say that I can't ever see myself anywhere else but with Halestorm. It's a family thing and we all have the same goal.” Lzzy adds, “We have been through a few other musicians and it's hard to find the right people with the same obsession as we have. So I like ya Joe, I think I will keep ya around.” All these years of playing and being a voice for female musicians, it is obvious that she has influenced countless musicians both male and female. As Hale tells me

how much her parents listened to the music growing up, they had a big part in shaping her, she continues. “I would have to say my bandmates, especially my little bro Arejay. I don't know how he is still alive. That kid has been in the hospital so many times. I have been in the hospital twice, once I was born and second I was diagnosed with asthma. At least twenty times Arejay has been in there, so he is a huge life influence. Talk about influences though, we just met a bunch of young girls from a girls rock camp in Iowa and they all sited us as an influence. I never thought I would see the day where I would have a bunch of 11 year olds saying that they wanted to be just like me.” With their latest album in full swing and doing as well as it has been, it comes with mixed reviews. I guess that would be inevitable when you have travelled the same path for so long, then mix it up a bit heading into more of a mainstream feel. I ask them how they feel about the reception of ‘Wild Life.’ “We have never been a band that wants to re-invent the wheel,” Lzzy says. “We just want to rock and be as good at it as we can. With this record, we threw everything out the door. We went with a new producer and new mission statement. We recorded all the tracks live together. So if one of us screwed up, we all had to do the song over. It was a lot of fun, but it's scary to trust yourselves.” Joe says, “It really shows our influences and it seems to be coming thru pretty well.” Mistakes and regret are a big part of life. We have all sat down and thought about what we would go back and change. When I brought this up this is what Lzzy had to say, “We never look too far back or too far ahead to the future. What's done is done so there aren't any regrets. We just keep on moving forward.” On the road constantly with the same people has to get tough, but when you consider yourselves as family you work through it.

“We are one of those weird bands that still likes each other,” Hale says. “So the best part of touring is that musical language that we have with three other people that you have known for over a decade and being able to make those moments on stage. There is nothing like it,” she adds. Being driven towards one goal so early in life, knowing what you want at such an early age, I can imagine that there had to be a lot of sacrifices to get to where you want to be. The most apparent would be giving up your childhood for what you feel is the greater good. “A lot of the stuff I had to sacrifice was a normal school life along with prom and I have a very small circle of friends, but I was never really interested in that stuff. I'm one of those chicks that when I found this, that was it, it was over,” Lzzy tells us. At one point this will ultimately end up as a bunch of really good memories. When that time comes and you are reflecting back thru everything that you were involved in, is going to leave a trail. Lzzy tells me that she would like to be remembered for her honesty. She continues, “What you see is what you get. We don't use any trickery. We have had a really good run I'd say.” I have been very fortunate to have seen Halestorm perform live on several occasions through the years and they have repeatedly put on one of the most energetic shows out there. It has been amazing to have the opportunity to jump “Into the Wild Life” with Lzzy and Joe.

If you look at the best vocalist polls from just about any rock publication over the past three decades, you will find one particular name that remains a constant. Geoff Tate has been able to project a signature onto the music world with his voice like no other. Combine that voice with his writing style and you simply get what most would consider pure genius. While establishing himself as the front man of Queensryche for 30 years, they released 12 studio albums, seven video albums, five live albums and seven compilation/greatest hits albums. The most notable release in the mainstream realm was “Empire” with the hits “Silent Lucidity,” “Jet City Woman” and the title track. He also released two solo albums and one under Queensryche featuring Geoff Tate. Out of all these previous recordings, the most recognizable is the platinum selling concept album, “Operation: Mindcrime.” After separating himself from the remaining members of Queensryche and two years of up and down litigation, Geoff found himself awarded the rights to “Operation: Mindcrime,” and has since named his current project just that. Just recently I sat down with Mr. Tate while on tour supporting their album, “The Key.” As I had mentioned earlier, his voice is definitely a signature in which there is no doubting it is him when you hear it. With a highly trained voice like his I asked him

what goes into his daily regiment. He tells me, “When I'm on the road it's quite different than when I'm at home. While touring, I need to get plenty of sleep. I need to work to stay healthy and avoid getting sick. After I take my morning shower, I start to work with scales to loosen up the voice. I typically prefer to soundcheck everyday where as most people don't. I like to make sure the set up is right and the monitor levels are where they need to be and the band is very well rehearsed. We will go over sections of songs that maybe we want to change or add something to. Then I just chill out before the show and maybe take a nap or go sightseeing.” The supporting cast in ones life always plays a strong role in where you end up. Tate tells me that his wife Susan has been a pillar in his life over the past 20 year since they have been married. He continues, “She has been an incredible partner and person to bounce ideas off of. The most loyal and steadfast person in my life as well as a creative partner. She helped me create a lot of the different projects I have worked on over the last 20 years. I would also say Ronnie James Dio was a mentor of mine and as we toured with him, he gave us a lot of advice on what not to or what to do.” With the path he has been on working into a fourth decade, there has to be at least one thing that he would go back and change.

Geoff says, “I would have probably done a lot more solo work. Right after ‘Empire,’ I would have released more solo albums and less Queensryche albums at that point. I would have established myself as a solo artist earlier in my career. For all those years, I worked and signed everything Queensryche and not signing it with my own name. I feel that entity is much more known than I am.” It isn't by accident that you end up with a career that lasts 30 plus years. Along the way you look back and think about the mark you are going to leave when it's all said and done. Tate tells me, “I have always tried to live my life in an honorable way. I try to treat people with respect and dignity and I want that same kind of treatment myself. I definitely try to lead an artistic life by writing music and presenting albums with songs that are challenging and helpful to people. Instead of being destructive, I have always wanted to be constructive in what I do. I would hope when it's all over, my peers would recognize those things as attributes.” All these years of writing it amazes me how he continues finding unique and interesting topics to wrap his songs around. He says it's all about life. He continues, “It's really all about life's experiences. I'm very fortunate that I get to do this for a living. I get to travel to all these different places around the world. I have played shows in 60 countries when most people don't get the chance to travel outside their own country. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this. My writing is influenced by what I learn on my journey. I see how other people look at things, how they look at life and what their experiences are; they become my experiences. So I write from that standpoint. I really like to collaborate on projects. I just did some work with Dave Ellefson from Megadeth on a couple tracks for the album, I'm working on right now. It was a total impromptu situation. We didn't even know each other, but we met on an airplane and that started our musical relationship. We started throwing ideas back and forth, and before we knew it

we had a couple songs. Another person I would like to work with is Steven Wilson of “Porcupine Tree.” We could come up with something really interesting I'm sure.” At one point Geoff was playing the larger venues, but it seems the he really connects in the more intimate settings like smaller clubs. Geoff Tate says, “Well with Queensryche, we spent most of our career opening for other bands. We did one headlining tour which was the “Empire” tour where we booked our own shows in the larger arenas, but we didn't really do so well in that regard. We weren't a band that was built for mass consumption. We were always more of a cotllectique, weird band that happened to have an album, “Empire,” that became very radio friendly. Before and after that, our songs were rarely played on the radio and appealed to a certain audience. In the 2000’s was when we began playing our own shows in theaters and clubs instead of opening for other acts, so it hasn't been a huge adjustment for me. Of course, I prefer to headline where you get more control instead of opening for 35 to 40 minutes and I like to see the people in the crowd and to be able to carry on a conversation with them. The Rock In Rio shows, we played in front of 250,000 people and they were a football field away from you and you can't even see them. Where is the connection in that. I really like to feel the magic that happens when you connect with people.” I wanted to talk about the thought process behind the development of his current project Operation: Mindcrime. “I wanted to work with really quality players. People that can keep up with me in doing what I want to do. Basically, I was looking for people that have a similar outlook on life and music who are in it for the arts sake, and not have the rockstar attitude. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people like that in the business and I wanted to avoid that. When I had the opportunity to restart, I wanted to involve people I had a friendship with. Everyone in this band I have known for years or I have a close connection to.”

Operation: Mindcrime will be performing at the Capitol Theatre on April 2nd and at Markham Park in Sunrise, FL at the 80’s Rock Fest on April 3rd. Full Access Magazine

When you think of death metal bands, there are a few that immediately come to mind like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse and Obituary. Of all of them out there striving to be recognized along with the previously mentioned mainstays, there is one in particular that has continued relentlessly to remain in your face and in your head, The Black Dahlia Murder! If you haven't heard of them chances are you can walk to your corner store and ask the kids hanging out in front and they will immediately pull out their phone and let you have a listen. With six of their seven albums breaking into the top 12 on the charts, they have well-established the fact that they are here and here to stay. I want you to know that the following conversation you are about to be privy to cannot possibly convey in text, the actual attitude of its content. When I sat down with Trevor I wasn't expecting such a down to earth, hilarious guy. Somehow, everything we had talked about, funny or not, contained some aspect of humor and a lot of laughs. With this in mind, shall we begin? With 15 years under their belt, their music has kept up with the fast pace music business. Trevor Strnad tells me that he feels like everything is going full speed ahead. He continues, “But, we are definitely getting a little older, so we tour a bit less per year. I

think at the height of things, we were out for ten months of the year. That was a lot, but now that we have had some success, we can sit back and let the anticipation build. Thankfully, we don't have to hit it quite as hard as we use to. I still think we are bringing it, although I feel there is a shelf life on this kind of physicality. I look at bands like Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death and they are still going strong, so they are like the Guinea pigs on longevity. We did realize right away that staying on the road is the best advertisement for an underground band. It's not like we are on the radio or anything, so to kind of be knocking at everybody’s door at all times is what was necessary. With the social media era, I think music has become too disposable to kids. We try to keep moving fast and keep the records coming at an equal pace to the way the world is moving.” The Black Dahlia Murder went through a member change recently. It's a bit different these days replacing someone. Strnad says, “It's a lot harder now. Announcing a member change publicly is a bummer because it makes the fans all worried. So when we change members now, we try to do it on the sly. Just take the new guy out and try to let the people figure it out as they go. We don't really look around locally

anymore. We definitely outsourced over the last few years and I think that has been one of the best decisions we have made. It is past the point of going on Facebook and announcing a tryout to fill a slot. That's a Pandora’s Box we don't want to deal with. You really don't want to let the other bands out there know because they all like to gossip. When Ryan decided he was leaving, he told us a year in advance and he actually hand picked Brandon as his replacement. Brandon isn't officially in the band yet. We are kind of holding it over his head and torturing him with it for a while. He seems to be the right man for the job and it's been a smooth transition thus far.” I was telling Trevor that they need reissue the first album, so it doesn't feel so lonely being the only album not to hit inside the top 12. This is what he said, “It is funny you bring that up. Not even 20 minutes ago, I was thinking about that. I'm not really sure what we will do with that one. It did come out a little quiet, because there was something wrong with the mastering. But to me it's kinda like a turd that you can't save. I mean, I like all the songs and we are about to go out and play them all on this tour coming up and I'm loving how the songs are shaping up.” Bands have received their break in many different ways. TBDM chose the more traditional route. Strnad says, “ It was the demo, someone actually listened to what we sent in. After 30 rejection letters from all of the labels, it was looking pretty grim. Then Metal Blade contacted us. They saw something in us and put a little elbow grease right away into the equation. I still have a lot of love for them for everything they have done and everything they continue to do for us. We have had a great relationship with them and I hope it stays that way because there is no Plan B for me. I took all my eggs and put them into one basket and tunnel visioned this the whole time. I have never even looked at Brian, the other original guy, and said ‘Well do you want to

take a break.’ That's just out of the question.” Trevor and I were talking about how important influential people are at an early age. He told me that the one person that he identified with as a kid was Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. He said, “Megadeth was my first love in metal. I'm talking about wearing a Megadeth shirt to school everyday and drawing pictures of Dave and the other members faces. I was one of those annoying fans. Then it became Henry Rollins. A lot of it was his book about Black Flag and his bad times touring. Somehow his book about how touring sucked turned into ‘Damn you got to do this.’ But they had it way harder, we don't get burned with cigarettes or bottles thrown at us these days, at least not yet. I owe a lot to those guys. They made me want to start a band and the band was me coming into my own. When I was in high school I was very tight lipped. The kinda guy that just slipped through the cracks and let's say I was a late bloomer. So the band just gave me my confidence and helped me find my niche in the universe. In school, I felt like an alien, one of a kind, like some kind of pariah.” I asked Strnad to give us a statement to close out our conversation. He says, “I hope that my peers would say I'm real and that it shows how much I love metal and do everything I could for the cause. That we have taken the opportunity that we have been given to the hilt. I try to lead by example. I try to be a good underground fan, always supporting the scene. I love being surrounded by like-minded individuals at shows and reaching out to others that are into the same thing. Just connecting in this kind of world and disendowing the real world with my own kind is what I'm all about. I just want the world to give us a shot. Don't feel like we are a kiddie band or perceive us as something we are not. I think with each album, we win over some more of the detractors. So to the long hair elitists metal heads, We are coming for you!”

BAND/ARTIST NEWS: Plans are apparently in the works for a possible reunion of the popular 1990’s Tampa Bay rock band, Stone Ginger. Stone Ginger was arguably one of the most popular Tampa Bay rock bands during their time. The band consisted of Jim Blades (lead vocals), Rick Morgan (guitar), Paul Wilkinson (guitar), Bob Campos (bass), and Chris Bishop (drums). Buddy King, lead singer of Tampa Bay rock band Buddy King’s Shotgun Junkies, was involved in a motorcycle accident last month after the bike he was riding was forced off the road by a hit- and-run driver on Gulf Boulevard in Sunset Beach. King was rushed to the hospital after being badly injured from the accident which propelled him off his bike and into a Bright House Cable transformer box. Bay Area Band Source will be holding a benefit concert for King on April 3rd. The event will take place at Mario’s Bar Pazza in Clearwater, and will feature performances by several local original and cover bands including Devilish Ploy, Sons of Nuns, RockJoint, and Purple Machine. Joey Bishop, lead singer of the popular Tampa Bay rock band the Luvdogz, has passed away after losing his battle with cancer on February 25th. Several events honoring Bishop are scheduled to take place this month including a memorial poker run, as well as a benefit/memorial concert held at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg. Both events will take place on April 2nd. NEW RELEASES: Tampa rock band, Three Killer Buds, has released their long awaited debut EP last month entitled, “Chrome Out.” Lead vocalist and drummer, Brian Olmsted, had the following to say about their new EP: “The band is very excited to finally get this project moving in the direction we want to pursue. 17

We know the fans have been chomping at the bit to be able to purchase our music, and as well, promoters are quite happy as well. We look forward to bringing the 3KB show to the masses soon, where you can be sure that you will be a show that will bring back fun, and perhaps put Tampa back on the map musically.” Tampa metal band, Atom N Evol, released their new EP last month on March 19. The band celebrated their new release by holding an EP release party at the Brass Mug in Tampa that same night. The event featured performances by Psykotribe, DogHead, Cypher Machine, Together in Exile, and Atom N Evol. Formed in September of 2015, Atom N Evol consists of Adam Riewold (vocals / guitar), C.D. Mourousas (bass), and Craig Clark (drums). Tampa Bay country artist, Don Gates, released his new 7-song EP last month entitled “Almost a Cowboy.” Gates will celebrate the release by holding a CD release party on April 15 at the Brass Mug in Tampa. St. Petersburg pop-rock band, Grand Central (formerly known as Mighty Mongo), has released a new music video for their song, “War.” The band announced that they will be releasing more singles over the next few months before releasing their new full-length album.

Zayn Mind of Mine RCA gggff by David Sackllah

Just over a year after leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik has emerged with Mind of Mine, his attempt at jumpstarting his solo career and being taken seriously as a mature artist. His well-publicized fallout with his former band has left him as much a symbol of individuality and rebellion to some as a backstabbing turncoat to others. For many, the record is a referendum on his decision, either validating it or serving as a skewering indictment of his choice go solo. Like most things, the truth lies somewhere in the middle, as Mind of Mine is largely an intriguing debut marred by a number of poor choices throughout. Zayn’s biggest mistake is playing it safe, especially for an artist striving to double down on a “dangerous, bad boy” image. He flirts with exploring darker avenues, but his attempt at a thoughtful, realized approach often fails due to vague platitudes and a lack of characterization. There are instances where he approximates the distinct voices of peers: the soulful dissonance of “Truth” could be a Channel Orange B-side, he stretches the upper register of his voice alongside ‘80s guitars on “She” much like The Weeknd’s latest, and the breathy sensuality of “Befour” recalls Miguel. Diving fully into modern R&B is a bold choice, especially when he could have easily followed Bieber’s success with a trendier tropical house approach. Zayn is still trying to find his footing, and the moments where he stumbles onto a strength are powerful. Mid-album highlight “Drunk” finds him transitioning an understated crooning vocal into a mid-tempo, lurching melody that contains a natural momentum. Zayn proves his range 19

as well, with both the sweeping retroinfused ballad “Fool For You” and the excitable “Like I Would”, one of a few moments where it sounds like he’s having fun, counteracting the considerably bland tracks that pervade the album. The desire to be taken seriously is so palpable that it can be off-putting, especially when it comes to sex. Many were quick to point out the clumsiness of analogies on “Pillowtalk”, and comparing fucking to a war zone was an awkward choice that is hard to get past. Unfortunately, Zayn carries that attitude throughout on songs like “Tio”. He may not be relying solely on innuendo, but the execution leaves much to be desired. The high-profile solo debut of one of the leads of the biggest boy bands around, Mind of Mine invites comparisons to Justified, the success of which it strains to replicate. While the circumstances are different, Timberlake’s solo debut has become the standard for former teen pop stars’ bids to be taken seriously and colors Zayn’s aspirations even if he falls short. It comes down to a lack of risk. There may be a rap remix, but working with Lil Wayne in 2016 is far from working with Clipse and The Neptunes in 2002. There are little touches, like the menace of slow-burning “Lucozade” or the soaring M83-influence on the intro, but he mostly hedges his bets. As much as he tries to mold himself towards an idealized sound, his self-indulgent choices are the rewarding ones. “Intermission: Flower”, a brief, serene interlude, finds him singing in Urdu over finger-picked acoustic guitar, one of the more expressive moments for the half-Pakistani pop star. It’s a moment you won’t get on other major label pop albums, and an indication of why it’s important to have a Muslim artist in the spotlight. In his hands, a song like “Borderz”, a grooving R&B jam about trying to find common ground with a lover, takes on an extra dimension, even if the lyrics aren’t political on their face. After

receiving threatening replies as one of the few mainstream artists to tweet support of Palestine in 2014, Zayn has indicated that he now shies away from making political statements. However, the record’s mere existence is a political act, and it’s clear throughout Mind of Mine that his voice is stronger when he embraces what makes him unique rather than trying to fit a mold. As a whole, there are many positive aspects of Zayn’s debut. He has a powerful voice, a knack for big hooks, and can elevate middling arrangements through sheer force of will. His aim to dive fully into a nuanced direction is a good look, and even though it can be too much at times, his earnestness is a natural antidote to the sleazy misanthropic attitudes of Bieber or The Weeknd. There’s just not enough focus, and promise can only take one so far without differentiation from the artists you’re emulating. Zayn may not live up to the hype on his debut, but as one of the more compelling pop stars of his class whose potential shines through in glimpses, it would be premature to write him off. Primal Scream Chaosmosis Ignition 333tf by Jeremy Zerbe

With Primal Scream’s breakthrough album Screamadelica celebrating its 25th anniversary, it’s clear that the band’s smash third record has been on Bobby Gillespie’s mind lately. After years of experimentation, touching on everything from industrial to trip-hop to psychedelica, the Scottish band’s 11th studio album, Chaosmosis, is something of a homecoming, returning to the sounds that first gave them international fame. Revisiting the acid house leanings of their early ’90s records might be an exercise in nostalgia. After such a long and diverse history, it feels like Gillespie and company aren’t trying to recapture some faded glory like so

many other ’90s rockers, but rather are expanding the reaches of a palette left untouched for almost two decades. From the moment album opener “Trippin’ on Your Love” drops in, you’re transported back to a time before the seriousness of More Light, before the harshness of XTRMNTR, back when Primal Scream was, basically, a feel-good party band. The bouncy pop hooks, the airy electronic beats, and the choirs of backing vocals are all straight off of Screamadelica and Give Out But Don’t Give Up. This is music for the old Hacienda, for taking MDA and blissing out with your friends. There are still moments of driving jackhammer discordance, like the one-minute-and-fifty-second “When the Blackout Meets the Fallout”, but for the most part, these songs are full of a kind of joy that hasn’t been so apparent in Primal Scream in a long time. Ultimately, it’s pop music. These are songs for the dance floor — stuff that even the kids might like. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have synthpop superstar Sky Ferreira on the album’s single, “Where the Light Gets In,” or current “it girls” HAIM on both “Trippin’ on Your Love” and “100% or Nothing.” Primal Scream are, with Chaosmosis, fully embracing their role as dance music’s cool, weird uncle. I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest to see more of these kinds of collaborations in the future, because many of the songs on this album could hit the Top 40. It all depends on where the band heads next. Because if we’ve seen anything throughout their career, it’s the ability to throw a curveball. For those who are excited to hear something new from the consistently fantastic band, or anyone who is looking for a fun new song to dance to at a DJ night at one of the hipper clubs in town, it’s a great listen. With songs like “(Feeling Like a) Demon Again” that drive your shoulders and hips into flowing convulsions or “I Can Change” with its slow-burning, head-wagging R&B groove.
