PACIFIER LIVE ALBUM TOUR
The band formerly known as Shihad are hitting the road later this month to promote their latest album, Pacifier Live. Fans by now should know that at a Pacifier gig, there's no room for restrained musical enjoyment. These Kiwi rock gods put on a show that unleashes the rock'n'roll beast within and turns you inside out, drags you over the coals and back again and leaves you feeling triumphant. The band's frontman Jon Toogood sums it up nicely when he says, "When we go onstage for that hour we give it everything we have, we give so much of ourselves that when people leave after the show, they're thinking one thing: that they've just seen a great rock and roll band." The band have shared the stage with the likes of Faith No More, AC/DC and the Foo Fighters and are currently at the pinnacle of their performing career. "We're the Beatles, the Stones, AC/DC, the Clash, the Pistols, Metallica, Slayer, Guns 'N Roses, Nirvana, Jane's Addiction, Rage Against the Machine all slammed together," says Toogood.
NEWS IN BRIEF:
*Singer/songwriter Candice Alley has resolved the legal dispute that first arose in 2001 with ex-manager Brian Canham. This according to Alley will enable both parties to put it behind them and pursue their careers. "I am happy with the settlement. I now want to focus on my career and am looking forward to the future and to continuing my songwriting," she said.
*Fresh from their blistering performances at the Big Day Out, Jet are currently celebrating the fact that their debut album has sold over 800,000 copies worldwide in territories including the US, Japan, Australia, the UK, and Europe and are fast approaching the million mark. At the time of writing, Australian sales for Get Born were closing in on double platinum.
*Popular underground record label Ipecac Recordings have announced that they have started a sister label: AntAcidAudio. The label will be a co-op of sorts with artists that have their own little labels that need assistance with promotion and distribution. The debut release will be the much-anticipated debut from the Eagles of Death Metal. This is a co-release with Josh Homme's Rekord Rekords and is due out in March. Other releases to look forward to include a NoMeansNo compilation as well as a never before released album from the now defunct Screaming Trees.
*After You Am I's recent departure from BMG comes the news that Festival-Mushroom Records have signed up the band's main singer/songwriter Tim Rogers. Says FMR's Managing Director Michael Parisi of the signing, “Tim is, without question, one of the best ever songwriters to come out of this country. We at FMR are both thrilled and honoured to be working with him. We can't wait for people to hear his new record." Tim Rogers & The Temperance Union forthcoming album ‘Spit Polish’ will be unveiled in April 2004.
*Delta Goodrem's Innocent Eyes album has become the 2nd longest charting #1 album in Australian history. It is only a matter of weeks away from breaking the record which is held by Dire Straits with their Brothers In Arms album which spent a whopping 35 weeks at the #1 spot...can she do it?
