I figure it’s always best to end news on a good note, so here’s your bad news for the week. As of Sunday, November 7th, the Indiana based metal band Gwen Stacy has announced they will be breaking up. After 6 years as a band the current members have decided to start new and pursue different directions. They will be missed. For the original post just click here -> Gwen Stacy’s Myspace blog.
Onto the good news Underoath‘s new cd Disambiguation is out today. With news that Aaron Gillespie (On drums /vocals and the last founding member of the band) had left officially to work full time on his new band, The Almost, many fan fingers were crossed. Could Underoath go on without him? The answer I think is yes, but I’ll let you decide for yourself. Chick here to hear 3 new tracks and order the album if you so desire -> Underoath on toothandnail.com.
So who likes contests? Well I don’t know about you, but I do. This week we have a great one to announce. Norma Jean fans gimme me a smile, because the band is offering free pre-show hang time. For the next five concerts on their tour you can enter to win. It is a contest, so be a competitor and click this link now for further instructions and the concert info -> Norma Jean’s myspace blog.
Last but not least we have… Stryper! Yep for those of you who didn’t know, Stryper is currently working on new album. It is a cover album but don’t fret. As any fan of Stryper can tell you these 26+ year veterans have certainly earned their stripes (no pun intended). Let me propose we toast to Stryper’s wonderful past offerings and to a successful new CD. For a full track listing and some song samples click here -> Roadrunner news and for an update from frontman Michael Sweet click here -> Stryper’s myspace blog.
Well that’s all for now folks have a great day. Sincerely yours, Toby.
