Trick or…. Nah, Just a Trick From PreSonus—Halloween 2012

Rick and Justin discuss what’s hip and horrific for Halloween 2012. This year, however, we’re not doing zombies. Not again. Zombies are TOTALLY dead.

OMG HAS ANYONE SEEN CARL?

Mark Williams is Cooler Than You

So, Mark Williams was traveling, as he is known to do. Being an international man of action is exhausting work, and someone snapped a shot of the guy as he just up and fell asleep—in a full suit—on the beach in Lisbon, Portugal. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it.

Anyhow, in true Mark Williams style, not only did he not break a sweat in the hot sun in a full suit, but when he got up to walk back to his car, there was no sand on his suit. Not a grain. Lone Ranger style.

I don’t know how he does it, but he better patent it ASAP. He could put the entire dry cleaning industry out of business.

 

Scott Van Heldts New Single Mastered in Studio One

Don’t tell him about the stolen drum stool or he’ll fall!

Members of White Zombie, HEAD, and Cirque du Soliel to release Black Sunshine cover on Halloween—Mastered in Studio One Professional 2!

Los Angeles, CA, 9-14-12— In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of White Zombie’s ground breaking album La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume I, original White Zombie drummer Ivan de Prume along with Scott “SVH” Von Heldt (former guitarist/vocalist for Brian “Head” Welch ex-Korn, Love and Death), and Cirque du Soliel violinist Martin St. Pierre are slated to release a cover of the White Zombie classic Black Sunshine under the moniker of HEALER.

The song was recorded during sessions for an intended EP that was to be the groups followup to their highly acclaimed debut album Awakening, which showcased a unique blend of Metal and World music. “We started covering Thunderkiss ‘65 and Black Sunshine in our live set and the vibe was very fresh and original because of the violin and world elements we had as a band” stated Von Heldt. “When it came time to work on new material we recorded Black Sunshine just to get a feel for blending that raw Zombie element with our own original twist and in the end I think we ended up with a pretty kick ass version of an already classic metal track!”

Healer was formed in 2005 and toured briefly from 2005-2007 which included a stint on the Van’s Warped tour. They disbanded in 2008 with St.Pierre returning to Cirque du Soliel full-time and Von Heldt soon after joining Head (the solo band of the nicknamed former Korn Guitarist). In 2011 de Prume and Von Heldt reunited and have been working on material for a new Healer release which they hope will see the light of day by early 2013!

Black Sunshine will be available October 31st via iTunes, Spotify, and other online retailers! For now, you can stream it here:

New Frog Leap Videooooooo!

The delightfully goofball StudioLive and Studio One enthusiasts over at Frog Leap Studios have released another of their trademark acoustic-rock version of a familiar classic. Last time they checked in with us, we got the Frog Leap treatment of the Jackson 5ive hit, “Blame it on the Boogie.” and “Hey Ya,” before that.

Given this rich history, I was expecting a folky rendition of “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” or “All The Single Ladies,” but instead we get the following. Thanks guys!

Hey there! Feeling bored? Got a camera? Why not make a video of yourself singing 8-part vocal harmony with yourself?

Just like this guy!
