Each episode of “Tour Tips” (Top 5) features a touring act sharing five pieces of advice for artists who want to hit the road. In this episode, which was filmed on November 9, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, SEVENDUST vocalist Lajon Witherspoon and drummer Morgan Rose share their tips for being on the road.

SEVENDUST didn’t waste any time getting 2014 started the best way they know how: being holed up in the recording studio to create their long-awaited and highly-anticipated acoustic album. “Time Travelers & Bonfires” will be released on April 15 via 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services. On April 1, they’ll hit the road for their first U.S. headlining tour of the year, entitled “An Evening With Sevendust”, which kicks off in Athens, Georgia at the Georgia Theatre. It’s their first acoustic trek since 2004, when they were touring in support of their second album, “Seasons”, and a format their fans have been anxiously awaiting for once again.

The Atlanta band — Lajon Witherspoon (vocals), Morgan Rose (drums/vocals), Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals), John Connolly (guitar/vocals) and Vince Hornsby (bass/vocals) — recently entered Architekt Studios in Butler, New Jersey (where they recorded their previous “Black Out The Sun” album) to record their highly anticipated and much-talked-about acoustic studio album. It is a collection of brand new songs, along with re-recorded SEVENDUST classics. Newly re-recorded songs include “Black”, “Gone”, “Denial”, “Karma”, “Trust” and “Crucified”. Six brand new songs have also been written and recorded for the acoustic album. It’s not the first time SEVENDUST has explored their acoustic side. Their critically acclaimed “Southside Double-Wide” live acoustic album was released in 2004.

“Time Travelers & Bonfires” track listing:

01. Come Down
02. Under It All
03. The Wait
04. Upbeat Sugar
05. One Life
06. Bonfire
07. Gone

09. Trust

California rockers TESLA last month entered the studio to record eight or nine new songs, to be included on the band’s forthcoming album.

Says TESLA guitarist Frank Hannon: “I must say that this new TESLA album is really gonna be awesome.

“We went in more prepared with the songs and ideas way more than ‘Forevermore’, and the style is pure TESLA back to our roots.

“The band is working and producing it as we did ‘Into The Now’… with help from the legendary Tom Zutaut, who helped us make our best albums.

“The title of the new album is gonna be ‘Simplicity’ and I truly believe you guys are gonna love it!”

He added: “The opening track is called ‘MP3′ and starts off with an opus intro that orchestrates into a heavy slow groove with lyrics about technology and how we miss simplicity, vinyl albums, family values… and has a heavy-ass riff! Then we segue into a rock and roll song called ‘Ricochet’ that talks about Uncle Ted

“Can’t wait to play this stuff live!”

A new TESLA song, “Taste My Pain”, was released last summer via iTunes and Amazon. The track was recorded during a two-day (June 5-6, 2013) session at J Street Recorders in Sacramento, with plans to include it on the upcoming CD. According to the group, “It’s a heavier song with a hard-driving beat and TESLA trademark blazing guitars.”

TESLA‘s latest album, “Twisted Wires And The Acoustic Sessions”, was released in July 2011 via Scarlet Records. The CD featured six songs that were recorded back in 2005 at bassist Brian Wheat‘s J Street Recorders studio — which also served as the last recordings with original member Tommy Skeoch — and six newly recorded tracks, including acoustic remakes of songs from TESLA‘s entire catalog and two brand new songs, “Second Street” and “Better Off Without You”.

TESLA released a live album, “Alive In Europe!”, in Europe on April 23, 2010 via Frontiers Records.

TESLA‘s latest studio album, “Forever More”, sold more than 16,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 33 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on October 7, 2008 on Tesla Electric Company Recordings. The European version of the album, which was made available on November 7, 2008 via Frontiers Records, contains two bonus tracks not found on the American version.

Singer Charlotte Wessels of Dutch symphonic metallers DELAIN was interviewed by The Age Of Metal prior to the band’s September 22 performance at Club Red in Tempe, Arizona as the support act for KAMELOT. You can now watch the chat below.

DELAIN recently released a special album, “Interlude”, via Napalm Records. The effort is described in in a press release as “a fantastic blend of brand-new songs, special versions and mixes of popular DELAIN tracks, covers, and the beautiful single ‘Are You Done With Me’. Thanks to the new mix, the well-known anthem shines with a new-found splendor. The album includes a special DVD featuring exclusive live footage and clips from the band’s career. ‘Interlude’ is not only a must for loyal DELAIN fans, but also for those who have not experienced the music by DELAIN so far. It is the perfect introduction to the world of DELAIN and the starting point to an emotional and bombastic journey!”

Dutch/Mexican symphonic/progressive metallers STREAM OF PASSION performed three new songs — “Earthquake”, “The Curse” and “Secrets” — during their September 27 concert at Gigant in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. Fan-filmed video footage can be seen below.

STREAM OF PASSION recently raised more than 43,000 euros in a crowdfunding campaign for their forthcoming fourth studio album, tentatively due in 2014.

The band’s last CD, “Darker Days”, was released in North America in July 2011 via Napalm Records. The effort was recorded at Sandlane Recording Facilities in Rijen, Holland.

In an interview with Sea Of Tranquility, STREAM OF PASSION singer Marcela Bovio stated about “Darker Days”, “The drive behind this album has to expand our musical horizons and incorporate new influences and ideas into our writing. We also wanted to go for a more organic sound; instead of layering all instruments on top of each other we tried to give each instrument its own moment in the songs. So make the heavy, guitar riff parts entirely about the guitars; and on the soft parts let the piano, the strings and the vocals take over.”

She added, “I think we made a huge step from ‘Embrace The Storm’ to ‘The Flame Within’. On ‘Embrace The Storm’, Arjen Lucassen (who was still in the band back then) had the absolute lead on songwriting, with me doing the vocal lines and melodies. For ‘The Flame Within’, I had to face the challenge of writing songs from scratch, instead of writing on top of what someone else already had done; so in a lot of ways our second album was also our first. Now with ‘Darker Days’, we’ve taken our ‘real’ second step as a band. And I think it was clear from the start that our goal was to keep refining our sound, to keep incorporating unique qualities to the music.”

Video footage of Arizona’s EYES SET TO KILL performing a 28-minute set for EMGtv can be seen below.

Commented EYES SET TO KILL frontwoman Alexia Rodriguez: “We’re excited to debut some of our newer tunes from our brand new album, ‘Masks’, on EMGtv.

“We love to stay connected with our fans, so I feel like [by] broadcasting this performance online, those who haven’t yet been able to see us live can finally get that chance thanks to our friends at EMG.

“A lot of people have been asking about my tone off of our newest album, so now people will be able to hear that familiar EMG sound, raw and live!”

EYES SET TO KILL‘s fifth full-length album, “Masks”, sold around 2,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 161 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on September 17 in North America via Century Media Records, the CD was produced by Steve Evetts, who has previously worked with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SUICIDE SILENCE and SEPULTURA, among others.

In the time leading up to pre-production and the recording of “Masks”, EYES SET TO KILL decided instead of pandering or worrying about expectations, they would hunker down and demo two of their strongest new songs, the irresistibly “True Colors” and “Nothing Left To Say”. Both merged anthemic scope and jarring metallic elegance, making for some of the group’s catchiest fare and as a result, they joined forces with Century Media Records for their fifth studio album.

“Those two songs served as a blueprint for the entire record,” explained Alexia Rodriguez. “When we were writing, I didn’t try to do what everybody else does. We didn’t need to throw a ton of riffs into one song or get overly technical. I wanted to make music that was catchy.”

With that mindset, the group retreated to a Southern California studio with Evetts. In the process, Alexia evolved immensely as the band’s songwriter, and the band’s patented sound expanded. For the first time, Cisko Miranda added staggering screams and vocals, building the harmonies and everything became amplified from the heaviness to the hooks.

“Masks” track listing:

01. Masks
02. Killing In Your Name
03. Lost And Forgotten
04. Where I Want To Be
05. True Colors
06. Surface
07. Little Liar
08. Nothing Left to Say
09. The New Plague
10. Infected
11. Secrets Between
12. Haze
13. Forbidden Line

An EPK (Electronic Press Kit) for “High Rise”, the debut EP from the new version of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS featuring LINKIN PARK‘s Chester Bennington, can be seen below. The effort will be released on October 8 via 13Star Records.

“High Rise” track listing:

01. Out Of Time
02. Black Heart
03. Same On The Inside
04. Cry Cry
05. Tomorrow

The official lyric video for the song “Black Heart” can be seen below.

“Out Of Time” reached the No. 1 position on both the Mediabase Active Rock and Mainstream Rock chart last month.

“In terms of style, when the DeLeo brothers [Dean and bassist Robert] get in the studio and start writing, they have a very unique way of putting chords together and structures and the type of chord progressions they put together,” Bennington told Fuse News of the writing process in the new STP. “So, in that sense, it’s gonna be undeniably the sound of STP — I mean, they’re the heart and soul of the band. Naturally, I’m not [former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer] Scott [Weiland], so I’m not gonna think of the same melodies, I’m not gonna think of the same lyrical content and such, so in that sense, naturally, there’s gonna be a difference in terms of how I interpret what the band puts together musically. I think that’s one of the reasons why we’re so eager to get the [new STONE TEMPLE PILOTS] EP out, because we want people to hear the new direction and feel the vibe of the new music. Because there’s definitely a vibe in that EP that is fresh and it’s new but it still feels very STP.”

He added: “When we started writing, the ideas came so fast; every single day, it semed like there was four or five things that we were all bringing in and contributing in terms of new songs. We could have easily spent three more months on this thing and had a full-length record out. There’s enough material there for us to do that and start getting into the next one. So in terms of the amount of creativity that’s been going on, it’s very healthy.”

STP fired Scott Weiland in February after reuniting with him in 2010 for a series of tours and one self-titled album. The band had previously been on hiatus since 2002, primarily due to the singer’s struggles with drugs and alcohol.

The group sued Weiland in May, accusing him of using the band’s name to advance his solo career, while claiming that his poor performances, late arrivals, and addiction struggles harmed the band’s career.

Weiland has countersued, claiming that the band cannot use the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS name without him.
