Video: COREY TAYLOR Rehearses Acoustic Cover Version Of LIVE’s ‘Lightning Crashes’

“You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left”, the new book from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor, will be released on July 7 via Da Capo Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group.

Taylor will promote the book with a combination of bookstore events and a solo tour which will be one-of-a-kind shows featuring readings from the book, acoustic performance, and audience discussion.

A clip of Taylor rehearsing a cover version of the LIVE song “Lightning Crashes” for the upcoming tour can be seen below.

During an appearance on the Nerdist podcast, Taylor stated about “You’re Making Me Hate You”: “It’s fucking brutal. It’s just me basically trashing everyone.”

Taylor said that his original title — which the publisher refused to allow him to use — was “You’re Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money)”.

Taylor‘s last book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven”, was published in the summer of 2013 and landed at No. 23 on the New York Times “Hardcover Non-Fiction” best sellers list.

His first book, 2011’s “Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good”, also made the list at No. 26.

The singer told The Pulse Of Radio in 2013 that his third book would be a collection of columns he’d written over the past decade for U.K. magazine Rock Sound. It is not clear whether this is that book. Taylor also said he plans to write a novel.

Solo tour rehearsals have begun….

INFERNAL MAJESTY To Release ‘No God’ Album

Long-running Canadian metallers INFERNAL MAJESTY have set “No God” as the title of their forthcoming album, tentatively due before the end of the year.

INFERNAL MAJESTY vocalist Christopher Bailey recently stated about the band’s new CD: “It is our best work since ‘None Shall Defy’ [1987]. In my opinion, it’s a combination of ‘Unholier Than Thou’ [1998] and ‘None Shall Defy’ through together.

“The [first] video is called ‘House Of War’. Basically, it’s about what’s been going on with all the shit in this world in this day and age.

“When we started work on the new album, a couple of the songs that will be on it were already in the works on the ‘Demon God’ demo [2007]: ‘Nation Of Assassins’ and ‘Systematical Extermination’. Now, we took ‘Systematical’ and we took ‘Nations’… They weren’t just re-recorded.

“This album we spent three years writing. It is our best work since ‘None Shall Defy’.”

A trailer for the soon-to-be-released “House Of War” music video can be seen below.

INFERNAL MAJESTY‘s current lineup:

Christopher Bailey – vocals
Kenny Hallman – guitar
Steve Terror – guitar
Kiel Wilson – drums

In a 2006 interview with Metal-Rules.com, Bailey blamed his split with INFERNAL MAJESTY on the fact that Terror and Hallman “had been quietly collecting my royalties [for INFERNAL MAJESTY‘s classic debut album, 1987’s ‘None Shall Defy’] while denying that they were receiving even their own royalties… period — and instead of working something out, they chose to smear me, replace me and spread misinformation to the new band members and others about this issue.” Bailey also shot the down the possibility of him ever rejoining INFERNAL MAJESTY, explaining: “It was devastating news to find this out about my co-band members and so-called ‘friends,’ and their actions afterwards made it like being decapitated and backstabbed.”

INFERNAL MAJESTY performed “None Shall Defy” in its entirety with special guest vocalist George “Corpsegrider” Fisher from CANNIBAL CORPSE on August 20, 2011 at Rickhaw Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Asked in an interview why INFERNAL MAJESTY was dropped by Roadrunner Records after the release of “None Shall Defy”, Steve Terror said, “At the time Roadrunner was just starting out in the States so they didn’t have the clout that they have now. There have been many bands that have been unhappy with Roadrunner and I don’t think we are any different. I think what really happened was, [former INFERNAL MAJESTY drummer] Rick [Hughes] went to New York to the label and told them that we didn’t want to tour, but to put out a second album instead. The rest of us didn’t find this out for about five years after the fact. The label wanted bands that wanted to tour so they became disinterested with us. You have to remember that at the time labels where signing everyone in sight and not really paying much attention to each band.”

THE WINERY DOGS Putting Finishing Touches On Sophomore Album

THE WINERY DOGS, the power trio featuring drummer Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ADRENALINE MOB), legendary bassist Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, TALAS, DAVID LEE ROTH) and guitarist/vocalist Richie Kotzen (MR. BIG, POISON), is putting the finishing touches on its sophomore album for a fall release in North America on Loud & Proud via RED (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) and in the rest of the world via earMUSIC.

In a brand new interview with Metal Wani, Portnoy said about the upcoming CD (hear audio below): “We’re almost done with the new album. Richie‘s finishing up his tracks at the moment. And the album, the mixing begins [in July], so we’ll deliver the record to the label [very soon]. And the tour is already scheduled to begin at the beginning of October in America. So the plan is to have the album out in time for the tour starting in October. So that’s the plan right now. And then once it comes out, we’ll begin the tour cycle, which will likely go well through 2016, and we wanna just play as many places as we can.”

Kotzen was asked by GetYourRockOut whether he felt any pressure trying to follow up the success of THE WINERY DOGS‘ self-titled debut album as the group prepared to begin work on its sophomore CD. “Personally, no,” Richie said. “With music, I’m one of those people that, like… I don’t think about anything other that doing what feels right to me. I mean, I probably could have put myself in situations where a lot more people would know about me, but I don’t, because I don’t wanna play music that I don’t wanna play. I learned that in the past. And so either, personally, I’ll play music that I wanna play, that I believe in, or I won’t play music at all. And I’ve done that; that’s me. And I think the other guys [in THE WINERY DOGS], I won’t speak for them, but making a record with them, and knowing them as well as I do now, I don’t think THE WINERY DOGS would make a record that the three of us would put out that we all didn’t love.”

He continued: “Once you start looking at music like a math equation and you start making choices that are outside the realm of creativity, you put yourself in a situation for a lot of emotional failure. And when you are there, then the music is meaningless and everything suffers and then things fall apart. So, I think, whatever we do, we’ll do what feels natural and what the three of us can get behind. Even in the decision-making process, if I make a suggestion and one of the other guys loves it, but the other guy doesn’t, we don’t do it. We don’t move unless all three of us agree to move. And then that way, once you’re in a position, at least you know all three of us decided to go here; it’s not like we were drug here by… you know what I’m trying to say?! By someone that didn’t wanna go there.”

AEROSMITH’s TOM HAMILTON ‘Can’t Blame’ STEVEN TYLER For Wanting To Make Solo Album

In a brand new interview with Digital Journal, AEROSMITH bassist Tom Hamilton was asked about the possibility of a follow-up to the band’s 2012 album “Music From Another Dimension!” He responded: “It’s hard to get [AEROSMITH singer] Steven [Tyler] to think about it right now because he’s doing his little thing there [referring to Tyler’s upcoming country solo album] … I know Joe [Perry, AEROSMITH guitarist] is into it, I know I’m into it. I think once Steven‘s been through the cycle of his solo album, he’s gonna want to come back and do another one…”

He continued: “We’ll figure out a way — whatever it takes. There’s still a lot of creativity in the band and there’s still a lot of desire to get better and do something better than what we’ve done before. So as long as that’s there, there’s always a chance for a new AEROSMITH album.”

Hamilton also talked about Tyler‘s recent comment that the other members of AEROSMITH were less than happy about his new solo project.

“I saw that quote where he sort of made a blanket remark that we’re mad at him for doing it, which is ridiculous — that’s his own perception,” said Tom.

“It’s funny; sometimes he’ll talk about how he’s been persecuted by the band over the years, but whatever… If it causes drama, let’s show that! He wanted to do this creative exercise of going and making an album, and I can’t blame him for wanting to do it. Joe‘s done it before, I’d love to do it someday. Why be angry about it?”

“Music From Another Dimension!” debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release.

The group’s previous collection of new songs, 2001’s “Just Push Play”, entered the chart at No. 2 with sales of 240,000 copies.

AEROSMITH‘s summer tour includes a performance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Concert For Legends on August 7 in Canton, Ohio.
