U.D.O. – “Steelhammer – Live From Moscow” To Be Released In May


Russia has a special meaning for Udo Dirkschneider and his band U.D.O.. They were one of the very first international artists to tour the huge country of Russia – and their fans are still very thankful until this day. So recording a LIVE DVD to highlight the “Steelhammer” tour was an opportunity the band didn’t want to miss. It is the first LIVE release of U.D.O.’s new line-up (with Russian band member) which easily convinced fans and critics alike on recent festivals and headlining gigs.

The band comes up with an exceptional setlist, incl. many classics that haven’t been played for a long time, fan favorites and tracks from the recent success album “Steelhammer”. U.D.O. once again prove why they are hailed as one of the best European live bands...

WHITECHAPEL – To Announce U.S. Tour Dates


WHITECHAPEL will reportedly be touring the U.S. this spring, though details have yet to be announced. A month ago we told you about a tip we received indicating that the band would be touring with Devildriver, Carnifex, Revocation, and Rivers of Nihil. Today, Whitechapel confirmed that they will be embarking upon a “national tour” with “support acts to be announced shortly.”

However, if leaked dates are any indication, those support acts consist, in part at least, of Revocation and Rivers of Nihil. To date, neither Devildriver nor Carnifex have been linked to any of the three tour dates, though we suspect that they soon will. Anyway, here are the three shows that have turned up thus far:

5/14 St. Louis, MO @ Fubar
5/15 Kansas City, MO @ Czar Bar
6/7 Nasvhille, TN @ The International
