Rage Against The Machine share live clip of ‘Bulls On Parade’

Rage Against The Machine have shared a clip from their free London show at Finsbury Park.

The performance of “Bulls On Parade” was recorded in 2010 and will feature on the band’s Live At Finsbury Park DVD, due for release on the 16th of October via Eagle Rock.

Rage Against The Machine staged the concert after promising to play a free gig in the UK if their track “Killing In The Name” became Christmas No.1 in 2009. The British public bought the track in their droves following a campaign to prevent that year’s The X-Factor TV show winner taking the coveted top spot in the Christmas singles chart. Rage Against The Machine donated all proceeds from the sale of the song to charity.

Black Veil Brides share live clip of ‘Faithless’ from forthcoming DVD ‘Alive And Burning’

Black Veil Brides have released a live performance clip of their track “Faithless” recorded at LA’s Wiltern Theater last November.

The video is part of Black Veil Brides’ new live DVD Alive And Burning which captures the whole of the band’s sold-out hometown show from their 2014 Black Mass Tour.

The DVD was directed by Casey Tebo, known for his work on Aerosmith documentary Rock For The Rising Sun. The cover artwork for the set was designed by the band’s longtime friend and previous album cover illustrator Richard Villa.

In a recent interview with the Full Metal Jackie radio show, BVB frontman Andy Biersack explained why the band had waited until now to release their first ever live concert film: “I think, for us, being the band that always had the aspirations and dreams to be the kind of band that could put on a big theatrical stage show, it’s taken a long time in our career. And, naturally, it takes a while for any band to get to the point where they can have that big stage show.”

He continued: “When you’re a young kid and go to a concert and see a big pyrotechnics or video screens, the reality behind how long that may take to get to that point both where it’s financially viable but also makes sense for you on a scalable ability to be able to tour with it, you don’t really think about that. We now are at a point, thankfully, that we can do a much more impressive and visual show and we felt that it was time to capture that with the DVD.”

Joe Bonamassa is to release a live recording, Joe Bonamassa: Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks, on Blu-Ray, DVD and CD.

The concert – a tribute to the music of blues legends Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf – was recorded over Labor Day weekend at the world renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

The film sees Bonamassa playing over 2.5 hours of music to a 9,000 capacity sold-out crowd, the biggest show of the guitarist’s career to date.

Says Bonamassa of the show: “It was the gig of a lifetime for me. What you see on this DVD is what it was like to play in front of the largest audience of my career, playing music that I loved, love, and fell in love with again in a much bigger way than I had before.”

The set features a selection of songs from each artist, followed by a 30-minute set of songs from Bonamassa’s own extensive catalogue. The Blu-Ray and DVD editions will also feature over 1.5 hours of extras including exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, photo gallery, historic footage of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and a featurette of Bonamassa and producer Kevin Shirley’s trip to The Crossroads.

The concert is presented by Keeping the Blues Alive, an organisation founded by Bonamassa that helps to promote the heritage of the blues to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education programs in public schools.

Joe Bonamassa: Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks will be released on the 23rd of March, with a full tracklist as follows:
