The grand Texas in July has decided to call it quits. They last released Bloodwork in September, the first with new vocalist J.T. Cavey. The successful album allowed them to continue touring through the world. The Ephrata, PA-based band has announced a farewell tour beginning with dates in Europe, before returning home to support Gideon on a headlining run. Later in the year, they’ll perform a final headlining run across the U.S. to say goodbye to all their fans.

Drummer Adam Gray announced his feelings via press release:

I’ve had the best times of my life during the last eight years with this band. From years of playing for little to no audience – to stages and massive crowds all over the world I thought I would never experience. I’ve met some of the coolest people and am so thankful for all of the friendships I’ve made. It’s time to really dedicate my time to improving at my instrument and getting back to the drawing board. Thank you to all my fans and friends who have supported me and will continue to support me through whatever is next. I hope you see you all one last time on our European farewell tour. Thank you!

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
