Don’t miss catching Asking Alexandria for $1 show this Sunday night!

September 29, 2018

  This weekend many were set to head out to the Louder than Life Festival in Louisville, Kentucky but the festival was cancelled due to unsafe conditions brought on by heavy rains. We applaud DWP with making the decision and keeping the fans safety as their priority. Many fans were planning on catching Asking Alexandria at the festival but there is no need to worry about missing them. Asking Alexandria will be playing a $1 show at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall for fans who had planned to attend the Louder Than Life festival this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky. Tickets are just $1 on the door, first come first served on the night.  Asking Alexandria didn’t want to leave fans without a show so quickly got to work on scheduling their own concert at the local venue. The show at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall will give those who were heading to the festival a chance to see Asking Alexandria play in a more intimate venue than usual, meaning that this show is set to be one hell of a party. Speaking on their impromptu booking, Ben Bruce (guitarist) [Read More]

September 29, 2018

    I hope you have been enjoying the new album from Slash ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators just as much as we have! The album, Living The Dream was  released on September 21st via Snakepit/Roadrunner Records. This is SLASH’s fourth solo album, and third with his band featuring MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), BRENT FITZ (Drums), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals) and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals). The band recently released a fun new video for their single, Driving Rain,  SLASH describes the creation of “Driving Rain,” “This is a riff I specifically remember playing with the guys for the first time at a venue in New Hampshire on the World on Fire tour. It’s a cool guitar part we ran though, and from that point forward the rest of the song started to come together in my mind while on the road. We put it all together this year and Myles came up with a great melody for it.” MYLES KENNEDY adds, “The riff is very reminiscent of vintage Aerosmith. It’s got a certain funk to it that’s compelling. Lyrically, it’s a story about somebody who works on the [Read More]
