Wildstreet, 'Tennessee Cocaine' -- New Video


From my inbox:

Wildstreet has released their official music video for their single "Tennessee Cocaine." The single was released on all major digital and streaming platforms August 23rd.

"Tennessee Cocaine’s the greatest feeling on the greatest night of your life. It’s like a speed ball laced w/adrenaline & cut w/ ecstasy. It’s hedonistic, instinctual, sexual like the gun burning ink in your veins. Tennessee Cocaine represents an addiction.. a addiction of humanity shall I say… to be free, to be an individual, & to live on our own terms. It’s about being the superstar or rockstar, at the best party.. on the best night of your life…" says Eric Jayk.

Wildstreet began in 2006 and released their self-titled debut album on Retrospect Records in 2009. The band spent the next 4 years touring nonstop & performing at US festivals including: Rocklahoma (5 consecutive years), SXSW & M3 Rock Festival. Wildstreet rocked alongside Black Veil Brides, Vains of Jenna, The Bouncing Souls, The Last Vegas, Twisted Sister, Michael Monroe, Crashdiet, Diemonds, Kix, LA Guns and more. The band won the Best Buy/Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands for Rockstar Energy’s Uproar Festival, and opened for Avenged Sevenfold, Sevendust and Three Days Grace in Camden, NJ.

After taking a 2 1/2 year break and dodging rumors of a band breakup, Wildstreet exploded back onto the NYC scene in 2016, headlining Gramercy Theatre with new lineup. In early 2017, the band rocked NYC with Faster Pussycat and The Biters and headed to Rocklahoma for the 6th time. The band began work on their latest single “Raise Hell” after Rocklahoma. Released in December 2017, it ushered in a new period for the band. They headlined Irving Plaza for the single’s release party, and was handpicked by Dorothy to open for her New York City tour date at The Bowery Ballroom. In February 2018, the band released a lyric/concert video for “Raise Hell.” Wildstreet spent the remainder of 2018 in the studio recording, Wildstreet III. They performed regional tour dates and festival dates. Highlights include opening for Sebastian Bach and Escape The Fate. In March, the band sold out The Knitting Factory Brooklyn and then headed out on their first tour in Europe, playing 10 shows in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, including Sleaze Fest 2019 in Bochum, Germany. Upon returning to NYC, Wildstreet filmed the official music video for “Tennessee Cocaine.” In July, they headlined a sold out NYC show at Saint Vitus and headed out for a short West Coast tour which included stops at The Whisky-agogo and Great American Music Hall.



David Lee Roth Announces Las Vegas Residency

Catch David Lee Roth: Vegas Rocks at the House of Blues Las Vegas on January 8th, 10th, 11th and again March 18th, 20th, 21st, 25th, 27th and 28th. You know this will be a heck of a party. A press release promises 26 songs, a lot of then early Van Halen hits like "Jump." Remember: it is September 10, 2019 and there is still no news from the Van Halen camp - I don't see a reunion tour happening anytime soon, especially with this news.

Quiet Riot Changes Singers (Again)

Frankie Banali can't keep a singer to save his life. James Durbin is out as the lead singer of Quiet Riot. Jizzy Pearl is the new guy apparently. This is ignorant on many levels but especially since Quiet Riot is due to release a new album in a couple months with Durbin on vocals. Will Pearl re-record all of Durbin's vocals on the upcoming Hollywood Cowboys?


Merry... September?

It isn't the holiday season yet (thank goodness!) but Rob Halford is getting a jump on things with a new Christmas track. The song is called "Donner and Blitzen" and is on his upcoming album Celestial. You can buy Celestial beginning October 18 or pre-order here.



Michael Monroe Releases 'Last Train To Tokyo' Video

Aerosmith Extends Las Vegas Residency

Aerosmith will now extend their Las Vegas residency into 2020. This doesn't surprise me - the shows are sold out and the tickets are very expensive. Aerosmith is a money machine after all. I don't think I will make it out to see this after all. I already have two vacations planned for 2020 and there is only so much money to go around. Who is planning on making it out to Vegas for the second part of this special residency?
