Slipknot has formally announced that they will be playing at the Iowa State Fair for the first time next year. The fair will run from August 8th – 18th in Des Moines, Iowa, and the band will be playing on August 10th.

I’m gonna drive from my house directly to the stage just like I do when I come to the fair. It makes no sense why we haven’t played here.

Buckcherry Debut Cover Of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole”

Buckcherry has debuted their cover of Nine Inch Nails’ song “Head Like A Hole” recently. You can check that out below.

Vocalist Josh Todd commented:

It’s hard for me to sing cover songs if I don’t really believe in the lyrics or it feels weird as far as where it sits in my range. But this is such a great song, and I love the lyrics. It means a lot to me…To me it’s about being a slave to money and doing anything for it and greed and all that stuff. That’s how I look at it at least.

Sleepkillers Unveil Debut Music Video

Rock “supergroup” Sleepkillers, comprised of Limp Bizkit’s Sam Rivers, Puddle of Mudd’s Damien Starkey and Adam Latiff, and Saliva’s Bobby Amaru, has unveiled the band’s debut music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “Dirty Foot” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming self-titled debut album which is due out independently in 2019.

Rivers commented:

We picked ‘Dirty Foot‘ as our first single because we feel like it’s the track that embodies our sound the most on the album. It’s got the melodic vocals mixed with all the heaviness and that’s really definitive to what our sound is — a tug of war between the two most powerful things in this world, love and hate.
