In a scene where most bands simply feel obligated to act tough, SKIP THE FOREPLAY are on a mission to loosen things up a bit with their infectious party anthems. The band's upcoming new debut album "NIGHTLIFE" showcases a refreshing mix of metalcore and electro music that will get your ass shackin' and your head bangin'! SKIP THE FOREPLAY's first single and video "THIS CITY (WE'RE TAKING OVER)" is pretty self-explanatory and features long time buddies Alex Erian (Despised Icon), Tyler Hoare (Blessed By A Broken Heart) and Jonathan Cabana (Blind Witness). Get ready to party to Montreal's next big thing!
Messages from the Sebastian Bach twitter :
Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his Facebook page:
"I am numb, in shock and devastated to report that my home of 21 years, my house featured on MTV 'Cribs', has been destroyed, condemned and deemed uninhabitable due to the extreme flooding courtesy of Hurricane Irene.
"In the two decades I have lived in this home, there has never been a single drop of water in the basement or anywhere else in the structure. Now Irene has overflowed the reservoir adjacent to my house. The surging waters have snapped the bridge in half next to my house and sent the bridge straight into my garage, knocking the house off of its foundation. The basement that has been dry for over two decades is now overflowing with water and I am not even allowed to start pumping the water out due to fears of electrocution.
"Original SKID ROW and KISS fans, I have bad news for you. Gone are irreplacable items, such as my KISS Gargoyles from the 1979 tour. KISS pinball machine. SKID ROW master tapes, video and audio, concerts, master tapes from 'Oh Say Can You Scream', etc. Boxes and boxes of one-of-a-kind SKID ROW memorabilia, from the first tour to our last, all stuff I collected on the road that no one else had. I had a library in the basement with every single magazine that had SKID ROW on the cover. This library took up a big part of the basement. All of this is lost now.
"We will salvage what we can, of course. But how I wish there was a reason to do a box set or something before Hurricane Irene hit. Nobody cared. Now it's too late.
"Don't know what you got till it's gone, indeed.
"The good news is that all my father's artwork, including the 16-foot 'Slave To The Grind' mural, is all OK. My sons and friends moved all my dad's art to the second level of the structure before Irene destroyed our home. My Silver Age comic collection is all on the third level, with the David Bierk archives, which is a completely dry level. But we are not allowed into the house yet to retrieve everything because the foundation has crumbled and the house could conceivably collapse at any second. We are working with the police and fire department to get the electricity turned off so no one gets electrocuted entering the premises. As soon as the power is off, we will pump out the basement and salvage what we can. Everything will be put into storage and then it looks like we will level the house.
"This has really taught me that the best things in life are indeed 'free.' What makes me happy is that my children and ex-wife are safe. My dad's art is unharmed. No one got hurt. My scrapbooks of memories of my life are dry and safe. The only things that are making me smile today is cranking BLACK VEIL BRIDES' 'Set The World On Fire' CD over and over again. Texting Danny from ASKING ALEXANDRIA who may become my new roommate in L.A. Getting texts from my girl Minnie [Gupta] in L.A. making sure I'm OK and trying to cheer me up. My neighbours in New Jersey clamouring around my house, calling me, offering help in any way they can. These things mean more to me than mere posessions.
"I have been holding on to my house since December, when my divorce papers were filed. I just could not let go of the only home I had ever known.
"Well, God has other plans for me it seems. He has made His decision for me.
"My home has been taken away by an 'act of God.' I just think He is giving me a much-needed push, is all.
"New Jersey, thank you all so much for 25 years of rock 'n' roll. It's all over now.
"I will always love New Jersey, but now there is literally nothing left for me here except memories of a past life.
"Hello, Los Angeles. Hello, New Life. Here i am. It's time for a new start.

Seminal New York City hardcore/metal band BIOHAZARD will hold open auditions to find a replacement for recently departed frontman Evan Seinfeld.
Seinfeld left BIOHAZARD in June after the band’s new CD was completed and was temporarily replaced by Scott Roberts, who played on the band’s 2005 “Means To An End” album and has been part of the BIOHAZARD extended family since.
A statement from the band themselves reads as follows: “ATTENTION SINGERS!!! You think you got what it takes to be one of the voices for BIOHAZARD? Send us your music, videos, links, etc., to email@example.com and we’ll check you out. Experience is a must, as is the ability to commit 100% to the life of a full-time touring musician, as the band is booked solid for 2012 and 2013.”
BIOHAZARD has set “Reborn In Defiance” as the title of its tenth studio album, due in Europe before the end of the year via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band’s first new studio CD in six years and the first with the original lineup — Evan Seinfeld (vocals, bass), Billy Graziadei (guitar, vocals), Danny Schuler (drums) and Bobby Hambel (guitar) — since 1994′s “State of The World Address” was produced by Toby Wright, who has previously worked with KORN, SLAYER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, KISS, FEAR FACTORY, IN FLAMES, STONE SOUR and OZZY OSBOURNE, among others.
Commented guitarist/vocalist Billy Graziadei: “When we got back together in 2008, we erased the last memory of BIOHAZARD in people’s heads and replaced it with a new kick-ass memory of what BIOHAZARD was all about back in the day.
“People heard we used to fuck shit up, but being back together again as the original BIOHAZARD gave us a chance to re-write history. Now we’re doing it once again with a brand new album.
“Our new album, ‘Reborn In Defiance’, is everything I love about BIOHAZARD but more….in 2011! 100% ass-kicking in every way…. See you in the pit!”
In a recent interview with Sweden’s Metalshrine, Graziadei stated about the departure of Evan Seinfeld, “It dropped like a bombshell. It kind of came up from left field. We finished tracking the [new BIOHAZARD] record in late February and really didn’t have much contact with him that much. Everything was through management and I was working on the mix with [producer] Toby [Wright] and some additional overdubs and different ideas and some piano and keyboard stuff. Then a couple of weeks ago he calls up and says, ‘I can’t do it anymore!’ He’s got a bunch of personal stuff and it’s mostly secret. But it’s personal between… it’s what’s going on in his life, but he made a decision and we weren’t happy about it, but we made our decision to continue and keep going. It would be great if he was here and I know he’s proud of the record and as happy as it came out as we are. We were all there and made it together and focused equally on it, but rather to let it die out, we said, ‘You know what? Fuck it! We’re all psyched and happy and even though things are different it doesn’t mean much has changed!’ The heart and soul of the band is still intact and we’re gonna continue.”
When asked about how bassist/vocalist Scott Roberts, who played on the band’s 2005 “Means To An End” album, was working out as Evan‘s temporary replacement, Billy said, “He’s great! He was the guy [that joined BIOHAZARD] after Bobby [Hambel left]. It took us a long time to find him, but we knew him and he filled in for us at the last minute, but he stepped up and did it. It was a tough obstacle to overcome but we did it. We played Download [festival in England], which was cool and the next day we played the Metal Hammer boat and that was a phenomenal show! All the kids were like, “Wow!” and even the editors of the magazine were like… and they’ve been doing this for ten years and in the past three of four years with ANTHRAX and HELLYEAH and they were like, ‘Nobody’s rocked the boat like you guys did!’ It was cool!”
A description of the Imperial/Strong Porter brew reads as follows: "A beer for the end of ages brewed with our friends in the band AMON AMARTH. This Aesir Porter is a robust and hearty beer brewed with local honey and a small portion of smoked malt. When Heimdall sounds the Giallar-horn this is the beer to be hoisted by the gods in anticipation of the coming battle."
