The Letter Black has appeared on stage with Hail, a fellow super group jam featuring Dave Buckner of Papa Roach, Marcos Curiel of P.O.D., Travis Miguel of Atreau and Marcello Rapp of Soulfly, alongside Traa of P.O.D. serving as guest bassist for the band during a benefit, not to mention two legs of touring with Skillet.

About Rapture Ruckus:
Fronted by MC Rapture (Brad Dring), Rapture Ruckus crafts an arresting, original fuse of rock laden hip hop, with heavy guitars and slick pop sensibilities. Rapture Ruckus debuted in 2002 at New Zealand’s Parachute Festival (one of the largest music festivals in the Southern Hemisphere) breaking the event’s record for highest-selling new act. Rapture Ruckus has continued touring, supporting bands throughout North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Next week on June 8th, Rapture Ruckus release the self-titled album via BEC Recordings. Check out the newly posted album trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/raptureruckustv .  For more information on the force that is Rapture Ruckus, visit http://www.myspace.com/raptureruckusmusic.

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.
