DARKEST HOUR have announced their 20th anniversary tour of the West Coast in November. The brief trek will feature a few appearances (on select dates) from Dead To Fall, Light This City, and Cephalic Carnage. The band had this to say:

“We are very excited to announce these encore performances of Undoing Ruin! We have been celebrating our 20th anniversary as a band all year and we just couldn’t ignore the call of West Coast.

Of course Dead To Fall will be on two of the shows (LA and Sacto) along with a one time only performance from Light This City In San Francisco. Not to be outdone, Denver’s own Cephalic Carnage will end this run with an epic ragger! We’ll be playing Undoing Ruin in its entirety along with jams that span our whole 20 year existence – this is the longest that we’ve ever played and it is for truely for the diehards can’t wait to get sweaty with you all! FIRE IT UP!”

MOTÖRHEAD – Lemmy Quits Austin, TX Show After Three Songs

September 2, 2015

MOTÖRHEAD was again forced to cut its concert short last night in Austin, Texas due to continued health issues experienced by the band’s frontman, Lemmy Kilmister.

According to GlideMagazine.com, MOTÖRHEAD delivered only three songs — “Damage Case”, “Stay Clean” and “We Are Motörhead” — before a “fatigued and winded” Lemmy announced the next track, “Metropolis”, and then let out a sigh, telling the crowd, “I can’t do it.” He then left the stage at Emo’s with the rest of his band and returned moments later and apologized to a disappointed but supportive audience. He said: “You are one of the best gigs in America, and I would love to play for you, but I can’t… So please accept my apologies. Next time, all right?” The house lights and music then came on, before “concerned” and “slightly annoyed” fans began funneling out.

Some fan-filmed video footage of MOTÖRHEAD’s appearance — shot from the front row — can be seen HERE.

The latest MOTÖRHEAD walk-off follows a similarly abbreviated performance last week in Salt Lake City, where the band cited the high altitude as the reason behind Lemmy’s inability to breathe. A show in Denver, at an even higher altitude, was scrapped the following day before MOTÖRHEAD ever took the stage.

Lemmy, who turned 69 years old in December, in 2013 suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel), causing the cancelation of a number of the band’s European festival shows. The band has since scrapped a couple of tours and, during last year’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, abandoned its set midway through so Lemmy could be taken to the hospital.

“I’ve had some health scares,” Lemmy told Kerrang! last month, “and I’ve had to really cut back on smoking and drinking and whatever. But it is what it is. I’ve had a good life, a good run. I do what I do still. I’m sure I’ll die on the road, one way or another.”

On a brighter note, Lemmy & co. released their 22nd studio album entitled “Bad Magic” on August 28th.

“Those who are familiar with us know our driving force has always been a deep devotion to real, straightforward riff-based metal, defending the sound of Old and the mentality that follows. Not only this remains the case, but shall be also enforced as we consider this a new channel for us to spread our aural primitivism.”

“Taking Metal Bands To The NEXT LEVEL!”

This basically involves writing and sending out press releases on behalf of your band to your fans and to media types such as music editors, record labels, radio programmers and concert promoters.

THEHOTTESTTMD

A good music publicist is not cheap. You can expect to pay anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 per month or more for an “experienced” music publicist… and most of them have campaigns starting at a four-month minimum.

Often it is your band manager who deals with the publicist on a day to day basis.
Hiring a good publicist can help you get to the next level… even before you have landed a manager.



Randy “Rocket” Cody of The Metal Den has contacts at a national & worldwide level and can reach out to them with ease about the artists he represents. He is one of the most widely known and respected heavy metal journalists working today.


TMD

So what should you expect from a music publicist once you hire them? You should expect someone who is extremely professional, friendly, a skilled writer, and someone who has a wealth of contacts and a track record for landing media coverage.

“Rocket” will do the following for your band:

Write or edit bio with distinct story representative of the client.

Target all heavy metal media, including: radio, weeklies, dailies, blogs, ezines, freelancers, video and television outlets.

Solicit metal media for show previews, reviews, interviews and airplay.

Target personal contacts throughout worldwide metal media.
Send press releases and kits to media and will continue to follow-up to encourage press coverage.

If releasing album, to send press release and press kits announcing record release party and information about record to targeted media list.

Write UNLIMITED press on your band published at TMD’s official site,
with heavy bulletin marketing via TMD’s sites on MySpace, Twitter, Facebook and ReverbNation!

Give feedback on publicity photo and connect with photographer if necessary.

You also get a monthly report that details all of the placements, and you will also be provided online links to coverage or hard copies of articles that have been published.
