There are Rock Festivals, and then there is Soundwave. Now in its' fifth year of traveling to Australia's major cities, the 2011 Soundwave Festival has a line-up that will most surely not be topped by any other festival, no matter what country. Rolling into five major cites (Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth) in just ten days, this year's Soundwave will offer one of its' most diverse line-ups to date. From metal legends Iron Maiden and Slayer to punk stalwarts...

Not many bands can sell out a 2800-seat venue without having a new record to support. Ween did just that when they hit the Fox Theater in Oakland last week though and, judging from the rabid reaction they received, the band has not lost any of its' fan base despite not having released any new material (with the exception of  "DC Won't Do You No Good," a web only single released in 2010) since 2007. Opening the show with "Fiesta,"...

The recent passing of Captain Beefheart leads me to make a confession which might surprise some of you. I'm someone who loves weird music (and I pride myself on that love), yet I never really got into Beefheart. In fact, I never listened to Trout Mask Replica (widely acknowledged as his masterpiece) until a couple of years ago, and then I was disappointed. Why was I disappointed? Frankly, it wasn't weird enough. when I finally put it on after years...

It's funny how times have changed in punk rock. There was a time when, unwilling to wait for something to happen to them, a clutch of bands took matters into their own hands and made their careers exist of their own accord. They cobbled together their own records and often either self-released them or released them on small labels. They booked their own tours and manufactured their own merchandise to sell from the side of the stage at shows, and...

There is music, and then there is what may pass as music, but is really just one guy yelling for an hour straight. This is my first review telling the world to not buy an album. This is the first time I’m telling you, the reader of this review, even if you have the audacity to steal music to not download The Apollo Kids by Ghostface Killah. Ghostface Killah has come to us with a new album. I’ve listened to...

Kill Rock Stars is pleased to announce that on March 1st we will be digitally releasing a new album from Winnipeg quintet Boats! Boats makes music songs in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Sometimes their songs are about fictional performing duos who have holes in their bodies and/or have a belief that they will one day give birth to a flock of birds. Sometimes they are about winning the Superbowl and finding treasure before encountering colossal failure. Often they are about a...

When Cage the Elephant released its' debut album just shy of two years ago, the band exhibited the kind of pent-up energy often found in one of Jack White’s many musical excursions; hectic, driven, and bouncing off the walls like a kid snowed in after a three-day sugar binge. That was a really strong start but, with their second studio album, the Elephant is really out of its' cage and the result is a sound that rampages willy-nilly across musical...
