MUSIC NEWS: EXODUS Reveal "Blood In, Blood Out" Track Listing & Pre-Sale

Legendary architects of thrash metal EXODUS have revealed the track listing for their upcoming tenth studio album, Blood In Blood Out, due out in North America on October 14th

 

"When I was working on the record, I was sitting around watching TV series like 'Gangland' and all these locked-up prison reality shows," shares guitarist & songwriter Gary Holt"And I thought, 'Yeah, that's like EXODUS.'  It's a brotherhood.  You bleed to get in, you bleed to get out.  I've been doing this kind of music since I was a teenager and I'll be doing it 'til I can't physically do it anymore."

MUSIC NEWS: R.E.M. UNPLUGGED - BOTH 1991 AND 2001 SESSIONS AVAILABLE INDIVIDUALLY ON VINYL SEPTEMBER 2

R.E.M. delivered two knockout performances on MTV's acclaimed "Unplugged" series, the first in 1991 and the other in 2001, giving them the unique distinction of being the only band to headline the series twice. Earlier this year, audio from both shows was released for the first time as a limited four-LP vinyl set that sold out instantly on Record Store Day 2014. Vinyl enthusiasts that missed out on the four-LP set can rejoice as the 1991 and 2001 will both be available individually as 2-LP sets on September 2 for a suggested price of $39.98 each.

The "Unplugged" performances are sonic snapshots that capture the legendary Athens, Georgia band at important points on its journey from alternative-music trailblazers to international stars that have sold more than 85 million records.

Drummer Bill Berry, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and singer Michael Stipe recorded their first "Unplugged" session in 1991, while riding a growing wave of success that began in 1987 with the commercial breakthrough of Document. Much of the performance spotlights songs from R.E.M.'s then-current album Out of Time, which sold nearly ten million copies and was the band's first #1 album in the U.S. From the album, the band performed "Radio Song," "Low" and its biggest American hit, "Losing My Religion."

R.E.M. made an extremely rare second appearance on "Unplugged" in 2001, but this time without original drummer Bill Berry, who left the band in 1997. For the show, the band focused mainly on its 12th studio album Reveal - which came out that year - with performances of the singles "Imitation of Life" and "All The Way To Reno (You're Gonna Be A Star)." The song selection draws from eight different albums with "So. Central Rain" from 1984's Reckoning, "Cuyahoga" from 1986's Lifes Rich Pageant and "Find The River," the elegiac album closer from the 1992 classic Automatic For The People.

These two-LP sets serve to foreshadow another monumental release from R.E.M. coming later in the year that will dig further into the vaults of MTV. Look for more information to be announced soon.

MUSIC NEWS: @BUTCHERBABIES' Carla Harvey reveals second excerpt from new novel, 'Death and Other Dances'

Carla Harvey, one half of the female-fronted duo that screams for the BUTCHER BABIES, has released a new novel, Death and Other Dances, which is available in select bookstores, as well as Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Kindle. This semi-autobiographical work tells the story of Autumn Franklin - an awkward, biracial Detroit native - that is disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background. When Autumn's young parents divorce, she becomes even more withdrawn, yet survives the cards that she's been dealt by relocating to the alluring City of Angels, where she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between a drastic career change: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.

To read an excerpt from Death and Other Dances, head over to Loudwire.com for the exclusive sneak peek: http://loudwire.com/butcher-babies-carla-harvey-death-other-dances-book-excerpt/

Another previously released excerpt can also be read at Revolver Mag.com: http://www.revolvermag.com/news/butcher-babies-carla-harvey-shares-excerpt-from-new-book-death-and-other-dances.html

LA's breakthrough metal act, BUTCHER BABIES, unleashed their debut album, Goliath, last year to critical acclaim, with press hailing it as a "relentless, full-force storm from start to finish" (New Transcendence.com). On September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe), the band will release a new EP of cover tunes, titled Uncovered, that will surely please fans of the BUTCHER BABIES, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally (THE OSMONDS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, etc.).

In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses,' we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way -- and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?"
