Paul Stanley: “Crazy Nights” Will Be In Sonic Boom Tour Set

In an interview with Metal-Rules.com, KISS frontman Paul Stanley has said that some of the band’s 80s and 90s back catalogue will be making its way into the upcoming Sonic Boom Over Europe Tour Set.

That noise you can hear is the sound of the KISS Army collectively dancing in celebration.

“Q: How about the 80/90’s material. There are lots of fans in Europe who are huge fans of the eighties and nineties KISS material. Will there be songs included from that period as well?

A: I’m sure “Crazy Nights” will be in the set and “God Gave Rock & Roll to You”. It’s really hard to cover everything from the beginning. So it means we have to leave out some songs. We can’t just keep adding songs. It’s great when people say “how about doing this one or that one” so ok then, what will be taken out of the show then?”

All at FANCORE our already pumping our fists in triumph at the possibility of hearing ‘Crazy Nights’ or ‘God Gave Rock & Roll To You’, but what about the rest of you? Do you want those in the setlist or do you have other ideas?



Video: A Day To Remember- I’m Made Of Wax Larry…

On the back of their incredible UK tour, pop punk/hardcore mob A Day To Remember have released the video for upcoming single, ‘I’m Made Of Wax Larry, What Are You Made Of?

Aside from being one of the best songs off 2009’s epic ‘Homesick‘ the video features cheerleaders, kick ball, synchronised headbanging and even a child being subjected to a chokeslam,  the latter possibly being the definition of ‘Awesome’.

So no excuses, the video is above for you to feast your hungry eyes upon. For those who didn’t catch ADTR along with Architects and Your Demise, we won’t rub it in too much but make sure you don’t miss the band on their next visit.

Aerosmith To Audition Steven Tyler’s Replacement

Steven Tyler's search for alternative employment didn't start too well.

Mammoth rock gods Aerosmith have announced plans to replace singer Steven Tyler, and quickly. Guitarist Joe Perry confirmed this in an interview with news agency QMI “We’ll start having some auditions, making some phone calls. Hopefully, we’ll have found a new singer by the summer, and Aerosmith will be able to go back out on the road”.

In the interview he detailed the problems preventing Tyler from touring with the band at the present time “He [Tyler] has to have leg surgery and foot surgery and it’s basically going to take him out of the picture for about a year, year and a half. So, in the meantime, the rest of the band wants to play. And I want to play with the other guys in Aerosmith. So the four of us are just making our plans. We’re gonna find somebody to get in there and fill that spot”

We here at Fancore are huge Aerosmith fans, and we can’t help but ask what the big rush is? For a band that doesn’t exactly take on a breakneck workload these days, sitting this year out and letting Steven recover wouldn’t end the world would it? What do you guys think? Should Aerosmith have gone the side-project route, or should they not let one man’s absence influence the band? Give us a shout on the comments section.

After the success of Beatles: Rock Band it seems that the people at Harmonix/MTV are set to unleash a new band-centric title in teh hugely successful rhythm game franchise in the form of a full Green Day: Rock Band game scheduled for 2010.

The following statement has been released by MTV:

“This game will feel like a natural extension of Green Day and their music that will deepen the fans’ connection to the band and their history,” said Alex Rigopulos, CEO and co-founder of Harmonix Music Systems. “Fans will be able to enjoy some of the greatest songs from the Green Day catalogue in this standalone game or via Rock Band due to full export capability. We are thrilled to work with Green Day to revisit key moments from their career, including their likenesses, content and imagery, through our innovative form of musical interaction.”

Besides confirming a global release in 2010 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii, the the track list will be fully exportable, allowing you to play the songs or Rock Band 1 or 2. This exportable option is only for PS3 and Xbox 360, not Wii, however. ”

With the recent Green Day global takeover, it isn’t a surprise that one of the most successful and mainstream acts of the decade are to follow the Fab Four’s footsteps. Will you be buying the game or do you think that bands like Led Zeppelin should be first in line above the pop punks?

  The just released teaser trailer for the game can be viewed above.
