I haven’t done one of my segments in a while.
However, it’s time for a new one.
THe bad news first.
David Draiman of Disturbed says the band is going on an indefinite break.
They have a final week in South America, according to his interview with Revolver Magazine. I’m glad I saw them back in January before this happened.
This part isn’t news, I am just gathering all sides of the story together.
Rumors are flying that Breaking Benjamin has broken up, and/or just fired a couple of members. Benjamin himself says on Myspace that they haven’t, but the comment isn’t dated, and this stuff came out in June after a missed show in Atlanta. I hope they get strong again.
Now for the good news.
Stained, Five Finger Death Punch, and Evanescence are all releasing new material this fall. In fact, 5FDP and Evanescence are releasing on the same day, October 11.
Here are videos of their singles.
They seem to return to their more fiery roots here.
Five Finger Death Punch
Similar in feel to War is the Answer, in the best way.
Not much to go on, but sounds beautiful.
