Simon's Key

Due to complications with their previous label Hollywood Records, Simon Says have apparently broken up and reformed under the new moniker of Key To Arson. A temporary page is currently up indicating the change at the bands old official website, http://www.officialsimonsays.com , and the band are said to be currently working on a new demo in hopes to secure themselves a recording contract with a new label.

I Am The Soul Nation

P.O.D. will be shooting the video for their new single "Youth Of The Nation" in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, October 25th, with director Paul Fedor (Marilyn Manson). In other news, the band have launched their own record label, tentatively dubbed Soul Craft Records (After the Bad Brains classic), and the first group signed to it is former Tooth & Nail act Blindside.

Salvation Chamber

Coal Chamber have confirmed that the title to their forthcoming new album is now "Salvation". Band frontman Dez Fafara recently released a statement on what to expect from the album, here's what he had to say:
"Wanted to say hello to all the fans. We are a few days away from finishing mixing one of the greatest albums of all time, and with all humbleness, I must say Salvation will live up to its title. Once again we have stepped out of the box. All the members are fine and we're beginning to gear up for what will be a virtual onslaught of Coal Chamber on the music scene. Look for the release in February or March.
These are exciting times for Coal Chamber and Coal Chamber fans. I must also say from my heart on the industry side of things, now having Island Records involved with Roadrunner and Universal (the greatly respected distribution company behind Coal Chamber), we are looking forward to climbing mountains.
With all respect,
- Dez Fafara"
A tentative February 26th release date through Roadrunner/Island/Def Jam has been set for the outing.


Mushroomhead have set a tentative December 04th release date through Universal for the forthcoming major label re-release of their latest outing, "XX". The album has been re-mixed by Toby Wright (Korn, Alice In Chains) and a video for the first single, "Solitaire/Unraveling", is expected to begin airing late next month.
