Orange Goblin’s Ben Ward is currently hanging with the amazing trio of bands on this year’s Lords Of The Riff tour! Here’s how it’s going so far…

Day 3 – Tuesday March 18th – The Arts Centre, Colchester

Everyone was surprisingly refreshed after the Crobar last night and after some pub grub we were on the road from East London for the short drive up to Colchester. We arrived at the venue, which is stunning. It’s an old converted church set within the old roman wall of Colchester complete with it’s own ancient graveyard. As stunning as it is, it’s a pain in the arse to get a van and trailer to in order to unload and load equipment!

The band set up in quick time so that they could go for the obligatory photo shoot in the said graveyard. Scorpion Child were headlining the night and the stage looked great with the backdrop in front of a huge stained-glass window! Dinner was a delicious vegetarian Chilli that I probably ate too much of and soon the venue was filling up nicely. Again, Buffalo Summer kicked things off and they were soon followed by Monster Truck. I was half expecting the Monster Truck keyboard player to set up in the pulpit at the side of the stage! By the time Scorpion Child hit the stage the crowd had swelled and everyone was ready for the rock! Scorpion Child definitely brought it too! An hour of high energy, high volume rock and roll and again all the punters went home happy! After the show we headed off to get pizza and kebabs (again!) before having a few beers and discussing horror movies back at a friends house. And the tour rolls on…

Skindred: ready for take-off

Skindred have announced a UK tour starting in January 2014 with special guests Soil and Viza.

It’s in support of the ragga-metallers’ upcoming album Kill The Power, due out around the same time. They’ve already offered a sneak preview in the form of lead track Ninja – check it out below.

Skindred drummer Arya Goggin says: “We always pride ourselves on having great guests on our tours and we’re really excited to have Soil as our main special guests – especially with Ryan back in the lineup. They’re great friends and absolutely slay it live so we can’t wait to party with them.

“We’re also extremely pleased to have  Viza join the tour and bring some of their unique energetic gypsy punk metal madness to the proceedings. Bring it on!”

Soil bassist Tim King admits: We’re excited and scared to tour with Skindred. We’ll definitely be in danger of having too much fun and getting in too much trouble together… nobody gets out alive!”

Skindred play the Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend.

Black Veil Brides hit the UK later this year

Whatever you think of Black Veil Brides, and heaven knows everyone has an opinion on them at least, you have to admire Andy Biersack for classily taking down some bozo in the crowd at the Vans Warped Tour in San Antonio, Texas, who had obviously turned up purely to shout a bit of abuse and be a general wally.

Watch the video below. Like we said, you don’t have to be a fan to see where Andy is coming from here:

Besides challenging the guy to get up on stage, Andy makes a fine point: if you hate a band so much, why are you stood there watching them? Don’t be a wally. Positive Metal Attitude, guys…

Andy and his crew will be hitting up the following venues in December:

DECEMBER
14 – LONDON The Roundhouse
15 – BRISTOL O2 Academy
17 – WOLVERHAMPTON Wulfrun 
18 – GLASGOW Barrowlands
19 – MANCHESTER Academy 
20 – NOTTINGHAM Rock City

Latest BVB album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones is out now.
