PALLBEARER have released “The Quicksand of Existing,” a third single from the their forthcoming album, ‘Forgotten Days‘ on Oct. 23rd via Nuclear Blast Records. The song arrives with another Ben Meredith directed video.

As we strive to be, the forces of entropy perpetually pull us down into a state of being unmade,” offers bass player / songwriter Joseph D. Rowland of the track which reflects the narrative themes behind the highly-anticipated release, self-described by the band as a reflection on family and loss. “The body degrades; the mind and memories fray into unwoven threads, no longer connected to the rich fabric of the self. Choices made upon our separate and conjoined paths may find us engulfed in a mire of our unmaking. I wanted this song to face this reality with a grim determination.

The Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Johan Johannson) produced album was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in West Texas. Michael Lierly, drummer Mark Lierly’s brother, once again created the album’s artwork, crafting images that were roughly hewn yet heartbreaking in their expressive heft. The striking cover is the ideal foil to PALLBEARER’s thick musical and lyrical melancholia.

PALLBEARER is Brett Campbell (vocals / guitar), Devin Holt (guitar), Joseph D. Rowland (bass / vocals), and Mark Lierly (drums). The Little Rock, Arkansas based band formed in 2008, and have since released a slew of singles and EPs, along with a trio of full-length albums: ‘Sorrow and Extinction‘ (2012), ‘Foundations of Burden‘ (2014), and ‘Heartless‘ (2017).

Elton John’s trippy 1968 Beatles rip-off makes us want a full psych-rock album from the Rocket Man

Listen to Regimental Sgt. Zippo, Elton John’s ‘affectionate nod’ to The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper




There’s a huge new Elton John box set coming in November, featuring previously unreleased tracks, early B-sides and a deep cuts chosen by the man himself. Featuring 60 previously unreleased tracks from 1967 – 1969, the years in which John’s songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin, iJewel Box promises to be a fascinating listen.

John has just released a taster of the set, in the form of the psychedelic Regimental Sgt. Zippo. The title track of an unreleased debut album, recorded and produced in May 1968 at the DJM studios, the same building that housed the Beatles’ publishing company, Northern Songs, the song is described as “an affectionate nod to Sgt Pepper and the era.”

The ultimate exploration into Elton John’s extensive back catalogue, Jewel Box features a number of rarities, and deep cuts discussed in John’s acclaimed 2019 memoir, Me. The eight discs come in a hardcover book, enclosed in an outer slipcase. Each section contains extensive notes and, for Deep Cuts, there is track-by-track commentary by the singer.

Elton says: ‘To delve back through every period of my career in such detail for Jewel Box has been an absolute pleasure. Hearing these long lost tracks again, I find it hard to comprehend just how prolific Bernie Taupin and I were during the early days. 

“The songs just poured out of us and the band were just unbelievable in the studio. I always want to push forward with everything I do and look to the future, but having time during lockdown to take stock and pull these moments from my memory from each era has been a joy. 

“As a devout record collector myself, this project has really excited me and I couldn’t be happier with the level of craft involved in such a carefully curated, lovingly constructed box set. I’m sure my fans will enjoy it as much as I have.”

Jewel Box is released via UMC/EMI on November 13.

David Crosby’s response to Eddie Van Halen’s death? “Meh”

CSN legend David Crosby’s reaction to the death of Eddie Van Halen prompts backlash from fans




When Eddie Van Halen died last week at the age of 65, the tributes began pouring in. From Jimmy Page and Richie Blackmore to Eddie’s former bandmates Dave Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, everyone was united in their admiration for the man who revolutionised the electric guitar,

Everyone except David Crosby, that is.

When the former Crosby, Stills & Nash man was asked by fan on Twitter, what he thought about the guitarist, he dismissed the question with a one-word reply: “Meh.”

The backlash was swift, with several fans and musicians calling Crosby out for his apparent lack of respect.

LA Guns guitarist Tracii Guns responded: “Wrong answer as f**k and rude as f**k!!! There are better ways to say you don’t care for someone’s music. That was very disrespectful. And yes straight out f**k you and your smug answer.”

Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick added: “I appreciate @thedavidcrosby too much for this to get in the way, but a much better answer would have been: ‘I know he meant a lot to so many but his sound & style just weren’t my thing.’”

Seemingly aware that he’d prodded a hornets’ nest, Crosby attempted to clarify his positon.

“Hendrix changed the world of guitar,” he wrote. “Nobody else really …look I get it… many of you loved Van Halen… and the one time I met he was nice… and he was talented… meh to me means I don’t care that much… and I don’t… doesn’t mean he wasn’t good ,he was but not for me.”

Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider wasn’t pacified, tweeting: “Now David Crosby knows what his eulogy will be from the 100s of millions of fans worldwide (and it’s getting close) – “Today David Crosby died….Meh.”
