On November 1, AUGUST BURNS RED will hit the road in support of their latest album, RESCUE & RESTORE (out now on Solid State), with BLESSTHEFALL, DEFEATER, and BEARTOOTH along for the ride. My friends at AEG Live are handling select dates on the tour, and they've teamed up with The Rock Father to get three ABR fans hooked-up with signed, double-sided posters promoting the release of RESCUE & RESTORE. It's a really cool collectible for the die-hard AUGUST BURNS RED fan...

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS are hitting the road with new frontman, CHESTER BENNINGTON (LINKIN PARK). Billed as "Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington" (reminds me of the whole "Sublime with Rome" thing), the band will head out with FILTER in support. Additionally, the band has announced a new EP for this fall, to be released by the band's own label, with distribution through ADA. Back in 1993, I interviewed drummer Eric Kretz and guitarist Dean DeLeo at the Palmer Auditorium in Davenport, Iowa. The band was touring in support of CORE, while opening for MEGADETH. I need to unearth that video of a 16-year-old me rockin' it with those guys. I also have a great story about Scott Weiland from that night, along with some photos I shot on 35mm (my first time in a photo pit). We'll save all of that for another day, but in the meantime, check out the STP tour dates...
