Queen By Age
As expected, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters/Nirvana fame will not be handling the drumming duties for the Queens Of The Stone Age on their forthcoming late summer tour with ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Grohl is said to have been under increasing pressure from his record label RCA to return to the Foo Fighters in light of their upcoming new album "One By One", which will see a release on October 22nd and will be preceded by the single "All My Life". As such the Queens Of Stone Age will be auditioning replacements shortly and expect to find a new drummer in times for the dates. Their new album "Songs For The Deaf" is slated for an August 27th release through Interscope.

Kittie Against War
Sascha Konietzko of KMFDM's remix of Kittie's new single "Safe" will now see a release early this fall.

For All The Side Projects
Nothingface have been indulging in a few side projects as they wait to hit the studio to begin recording their new album with an as of yet undetermined producer this fall. Band bassist Bill Gaal has been keeping busy with Perfect Enemy, a group in which he is the chief song writing component, handling the vocal, guitar, bass and synth duties, while fellow Nothingface bandmate Tommy Sickles handles the drums. According to Gaal, Perfect Enemy's sound is "a little more melodic than Nothingface, more along the lines of Refused, Quicksand, Jawbox, kind of punk rock but more intricate." He currently hopes to have all the material for the project written by summers end. Meanwhile, Gaal will also be handling the keyboard duties in band guitarist Tom Maxwell's side project, Cold White Christ, a group which also features Sickles on drums. Although the rest of the lineup for the project has yet to be decided upon, the group will begin demoing new material next week. Gaal went on to describe Cold White Christ's sound by saying "Imagine the heaviest stuff that Nothingface has ever played, then take it to its absolute extreme." At present, Nothingface's next outing is expected to land in stores in early 2003 through TVT.

The Golden Drums
