a couple notes of interest… …Stone Sour is back in the States after a month long tour of Europe (see VIDEO section for a couple live video clips from their London Astoria show, inc new live clip of ‘Blue Study’)…they will resume touring come mid-April. Until then, you still just might be hearing them at concert venues – word has it that Stone Sour music will be played right between the acts at the US Disturbed tour throughout March and April. True. …What’s the Bruce Willis situation? “He was trained to follow orders. He became a hero by defying them,” or so tells the tagline of the upcoming movie Tears Of The Sun. In said movie, Bruce plays a Special-Ops commander who leads his team into the jungle of Nigeria. Why the hell are we mentioning this? Ill Nino’s “I Am Loco” is track played during the trailer of this movie. True. (Ill Nino is currently writing material for their upcoming second release) …Spotted earlier this week in a mini-marketing meeting at the Roadrunner US office were two of our own nerds (and we mean that in the nicest possible way) sitting side by side…both wearing long sleeve Killswitch Engage shirts, both sporting shaved heads (though, only one of the shaved heads is out of choice, the other being out of necessity). Speaking of KsE, the final video for “Fixation On The Darkness” should be in house come Tuesday (March 11) after the band puts their stamp of approval on the piece. Lookin’ mighty fine too. …and last, on Friday at Systems Two Studios in Brooklyn – where all Type O Negative albums have been recorded – the Type O Negative photoshoot for their upcoming album took place. Smile.
