Music News & Notes

The Black Dahlia Murder Reveals "Deflorate" Cover Art

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER has revealed the cover art for their upcoming new album, "Deflorate," to be released on Metal Blade Records in Europe on September 11/14 and September 15 in the USA.

"A Selection Unnatural," the first single, is streaming on RevolverMag.com.

"Deflorate" was recorded at the famed Audiohammer Studios by production wizard Jason Suecof (DevilDriver, Trivium, Job For A Cowboy, Daath) and engineering talent Mark Lewis (Trivium, Bury Your Dead, All That Remains).

"Deflorate" will be released on September 11/14 in Europe as a limited first edition double digipak including bonus-dvd and as a regular jewelcase CD. The album will be released on September 15 in the USA.


She Has Survived

Gloria Gaynor is re-releasing her massive disco hit "I Will Survive" on October 27 to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Such releases are very popular in England and sometimes lead to a whole new round of charting for older songs, but that has never been the case here in the U.S. Still, it is a symbolic gesture for a song that seems to have grown beyond standard Disco love/hate to an anthem.

The new recording will have an updated version of the song in both English and Spanish along with the gospel ballad "He Gave Me Life (I Will Survive)." Gaynor is planning a full gospel album for next year.


Rolling Stone Poll

The Rolling Stone reader's poll over the past weekend asked people to name their favorite supergroups, those formed by members of other popular groups.

Here are the top 15 as picked by the readers of Rolling Stone.


2.Velvet Revolver



5.Traveling Wilburys

6.Temple of the Dog

7.Derek & The Dominos

8.Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young


10.Blind Faith

11.The Dead Weather

12.Bad Company


14.Foo Fighters

15.Mad Season

No ELP, Asia? I am sure there are more, but these groups would rank higher for me than some of the others on this list.....

They Are Missed:

Born on this day in 1901, Louis Armstrong, singer, bandleader, trumpet. Had many hits, including the 1964 #1 “Hello Dolly.” Died on July 6, 1971.

The late Elsberry Hobbs of the Drifters ("There Goes My Baby") was born in 1930.

Singer/songwriter Lee Hazlewood died of cancer in 2007, in his home near Las Vegas aged 78. Hazlewood wrote and produced many of Nancy Sinatra's most famous hits, including “These Boots Were Made For Walkin,” “Jackson” and “Did You Ever?” He also produced Duane Eddy and Gram Parsons and “Something Stupid” - the duet Nancy recorded with her father Frank in 1967.

American blues singer and guitarist Little Milton died in 2005. Milton had suffered a brain aneurysm on July 25, 2005 and had lapsed into a coma. He signed to Sun records in 1953 and had the 1965 US #25 single “We're Gonna Make It.”


The first country superstar, Jimmie "the Singing Brakeman" Rodgers made his first recording for Victor Records in Bristol, Tennessee in 1927.

What many consider to be one of rock's greatest double-sided singles, "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog," was released in 1956. Both sides will share the top spot for 11 weeks.

In 1957, the Everly Brothers made their second appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and introduced their upcoming single, "Wake Up Little Susie," a song which would go on to cause some major controversy and be banned from some radio stations.

Billboard Magazine introduced its "Hot 100" chart in 1958, which was part popularity and a barometer of the movement of potential hits. The first number one song was Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool."

The Beatles appeared at the Queen's Theatre in Blackpool in 1963. So many fans crowded around the theatre, blocking every entrance, that The Beatles had to go through a construction area, up and across some scaffolding to the roof of the theatre, from where they were lowered through a trap door.

In 1966, the day after the South African government bans Beatle records from airing in response to John Lennon's statement that the band was now more popular than Jesus Christ, a ban on the broadcast of any and all Beatles records on U.S. radio stations goes into effect on most of the country's radio stations.

In 1967, a female Monkees fan stowed away on the bands plane between shows in Minneapolis and St Louis. The girl's father threatened to bring charges for transporting a minor across state lines.

The two day Newport Pop Festival took place in California in 1968 with Canned Heat, Sonny & Cher, Steppenwolf, The Byrds, The Grateful Dead, Tiny Tim, Iron Butterfly and Jefferson Airplane. Over 100,000 fans attended the festival.

In 1970, The Medicine Ball Caravan touring festival, featuring headliners the Grateful Dead, played its first date - in San Francisco, of course.

Maureen McGovern started a two week run at #1 on the US singles chart in 1973 with “The Morning After.”

John Lennon and Yoko Ono began recording what would become his final album 'Double Fantasy' at The Hit Factory, New York in 1980.

Prince started a 24 week run at the top of the US album charts in 1984 with “Purple Rain,” it went on to sell over 10 million copies.

Mariah Carey's started a four week run at #1 on the US singles chart in 1990 with “Vision Of Love,” her debut release.
