Thumbnail for 160323

On November 13, guitarist Ryan Peake and guitarist/vocalist Chad Kroeger of Canadian rockers NICKELBACK took part in a question-and-answer session with Sweden’s Bandit Rock radio station. You can now watch the chat below.

NICKELBACK‘s new album, “No Fixed Address”, sold around 80,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on November 17.

Kroeger told The Pulse Of Radio that title of the album was inspired by the way it was recorded. “We kind of did it all over the place,” he said. “I mean, we were in Vancouver, we were in L.A., we were in Maui, we had a portable rig with us on a European tour and we were recording stuff there. So I mean, that’s why we’ve titled the album ‘No Fixed Address’.”

The 11-song set is the first through the Canadian act’s new deal with Republic Records.

The first single from the album, “Edge Of A Revolution”, has already topped the rock radio airplay chart.

The band will launch a six-month North American tour on February 14, 2015 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

NICKELBACK has sold more than 50 million records worldwide since breaking through with its 2001 album, “Silver Side Up”.


Guitarist GLEN DROVER: ‘There Is NO Chance’ I Would Ever Rejoin MEGADETH

Former MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover says that there is “no chance” he would ever return to the band, explaining that he has “other cool things coming up.”

Drover left MEGADETH in 2007 and was replaced by Chris Broderick, who himself exited the band earlier this week, along with Glen‘s brother, drummer Shawn Drover.

Writing on his Facebook page yesterday (Wednesday, November 26), Glen said: “I’m very sorry, but to those who want to see me back in MEGADETH, that will never happen. Other cool things coming up. Again, sorry, but there is NO chance I would ever do that. Now saying all of that, thanks a ton for all of your awesome support and it was fun while i was there playing all those cool shows and meeting a lot of you!”

Asked if his desire to spend time more time with his family was the reason he left MEGADETH in 2007, Glen — who has also played with KING DIAMOND, TESTAMENT and EIDOLON — told the “Metal Attack MTL” radio show: “No, not necessarily. I mean, it was part of that, but there was a lot of turmoil going on in the band while I was there, and it wasn’t as much fun. See, the first couple of years in MEGADETH, it was a lot of fun — it was a very healthy atmosphere — but towards the end it wasn’t, and I think that kind of magnified the fact that I didn’t wanna be a part of that kind of destructive kind of atmosphere, and I wanted to be at home with my family and then stage the next plan of attack for the next project, whatever that may be.”

Glen‘s debut solo album, “Metalusion”, was released in April 2011 via Magna Carta Records.

On September 25, 2011, Drover took part in a “historic” performance that was webcast worldwide as part of the “Live At Metalworks” series from Mississauga, Canada.

Glen‘s “Live At Metalworks” performance was released as a DVD via Magna Carta.


ARCH ENEMY’s ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ: It’s Absurd To Call A Category Of Music ‘Female-Fronted Metal’ recently conducted an interview with guitarist Michael Amott and vocalist Alissa White-Gluz of Swedish / Canadian / American metallers ARCH ENEMY. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked how she feels about female-fronted metal bands being lumped into the same category, Alissa said: “I agree that it’s absurd to call a category of music ‘female-fronted metal,’ because if you look at OTEP or EPICA or ARCH ENEMY, we don’t sound anything alike. Or LACUNA COIL or HUNTRESS or any other band you wanna put in there. It’s all different kinds of metal. Just because the gender of the vocalist is the same, that doesn’t actually tell you anything about the sound of the band.”

She continued: “But, yeah, I think it’s a blessing and a curse, in a way, because there are some fans out there that, as soon as they see a female in a band, they’re automatically supporting the band and they’re happy to do it. And that’s cool if that’s what they like. I think it’s a little weird, because sometimes maybe those bands really aren’t as great as another band that has a male singer and won’t get as much attention. But that being said, there’s also the other side of the coin, which is that there’s some people that just won’t accept the band if there’s a woman in the band. So there’s a positive and a negative to being a girl in a boy’s club. But I don’t even think about it anymore, to be honest. ‘Cause I’ve been doing it quite some time now. Probably when I was first starting out and didn’t have as much of an established persona or whatever, I faced a lot more of the novelty-type attitude, like people just, like, ‘Hey, you’re hot,’ or whatever. But now nobody even talks to me. [Laughs]”

ARCH ENEMY earlier in the month parted ways with guitarist Nick Cordle and replaced him with Jeff Loomis. Loomis is making his live debut with ARCH ENEMY on the band’s European tour, which kicked off on November 26.

ARCH ENEMY played its first show with Alissa White-Gluz on May 23 at Turbohalle in Bucharest, Romania. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now-classic “Wages Of Sin” (2001), has stepped down as frontwoman and will focus on management, while Alissa takes her place.

ARCH ENEMY‘s new album, “War Eternal”, sold around 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 44. The CD was released on June 10 in North America via Century Media Records. The cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.


Video: KISS Performs At 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

KISS played earlier today (Thursday, November 27) at the 88th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The performance, which aired on NBC, can be seen below.

The special appearance by KISS — which was secured by the band’s brand management company, Epic Rights — was led by more than 600 cheerleaders from around the country, paying tribute to the band with a rocking KISS medley.

The 88th edition of America’s favorite holiday tradition began at 9:00 a.m, ready to entertain more than 3.5 million spectators lining the streets of Manhattan and more than 50 million viewers nationwide.

“Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the most popular and visually spectacular holiday parade in America, and there is no doubt that KISS, unequalled in the world of concert performance, will deliver stunning theatrics at the Parade,” said Juli Boylan-Riddles, EVP of global strategic partnerships and licensing.

KISS leaders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley jointly stated: “2014 has been a banner year for us and participating in one of the country’s most beloved events caps off what has truly been a spectacular 40th anniversary.”

The cast of the NBC‘s “Today Show” hosted the broadcast, which also featured Sting, Meghan Trainor, Idina Menzel, Nick Jonas, the cast of “Sesame Street” and actress Quevenzhane Wallis, with Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons and their star pitcher, 13-year-old Mo’Ne Davis, kicking things off.


DAVE GROHL: I Knew Nothing About New Orleans Or Jazz Before ‘Sonic Highways’

FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl admitted in a new interview with Rolling Stone that he knew nothing about the history and culture of New Orleans before he and the band traveled there for the sixth episode of their HBO series “Sonic Highways”. According to The Pulse Of Radio, Grohl explained, “Before I turned on the camera with Ben Jaffe from PRESERVATION HALL (JAZZ BAND), I said, ‘I don’t know shit about jazz and I don’t know shit about New Orleans’… A lot of the interviews were like that. I’m a music nerd, but I’m not a musicologist. I love talking about music and hearing these stories, but I also love not knowing everything.”

The New Orleans episode aired this past Friday night (November 21) and featured interviews with Jaffe, the BLACK KEYSDan Auerbach, Trombone Shorty and Bonnie Raitt, while also focusing on the careers of Big Easy legends like Dr. John, Allen Toussaint and THE METERS.

Asked why he included New Orleans in the series, Grohl said, “The celebration of life in that city is unlike anywhere else I’ve ever been… there’s a soundtrack to that city everywhere, 24 hours a day. You’re just immersed in music. It makes people smile and dance and drink and celebrate life.”

Drummer Taylor Hawkins told The Pulse Of Radio that the FOO FIGHTERS felt more welcomed by the musical community in New Orleans than any other city. “The thing about New Orleans is all those musicians — it’s like they all wrapped their arms around us as soon as we got there. They were all like, ‘We’re gonna be part of this too.’ Because they wanna play. They’re there to play. They were involved from second one, and that’s the spirit of that place. We’re here to play, everybody’s gonna play. It’s all about that shared sort of experience.”

New Orleans was one of eight cities in which FOO FIGHTERS recorded its new album, also titled “Sonic Highways”, which the HBO series has chronicled. There are two episodes of the series left.

FOO FIGHTERS will tour North American stadiums and arenas next year in support of the album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart last week.
