New York’s symphonic rock band Hunt For Hunter have released the official music video for their single, “Let it Out”. The band, who draws influence from bands like Manchester Orchestra and Queens Of The Stone Age, have been around since 2014, starting out as an acoustic folk (!!!) duo. Check out the new video below!
Texas-based hard rock band Blacktop Mojo has released the official music video for “Prodigal,” off of their most recent LP, Burn The Ships. Burn The Ships, the band’s sophomore album, showcases the band’s intriguing and catchy hard rock sound that catapulted Blacktop Mojo to numerous supporting tour slots, as well as a 110% fan-funded campaign for their upcoming 3rd record – with almost 2 months left to go. Impressive.
At 27 years of age, I’m slightly over half the age vocalist Chris Cornell was when he died earlier today. This is both a sobering reality of how finite our time is on Earth, as well as the limited amount of time we have to do something that truly matters. Think about your age and what you’ve accomplished. Have you truly lived?
Multiple sources, including Chris Cornell’s representative, have confirmed that Soundgarden and Audioslave vocalist Chris Cornell has died at the age of 52. According to the Independent UK, the cause of death is unknown, and it was “sudden and unexpected”.
I personally witnessed him playing with Soundgarden 3 weeks ago at Fort Rock Festival in Fort Myers, so this is incredibly emotional to me. I grew up listening to his voice, and “Black Hole Sun” was one of Soundgarden’s biggest tracks. We don’t know how he died yet, but that’s not the point – he went out doing what he loved, as 8 hours ago he posted a tweet at a show.
Chris Cornell is a veritable legend, and his time with both Soundgarden and as part of the supergroup Audioslave are both fondly remembered, as is his solo work, so listen to Soundgarden’s 1994 opus Superunknown below, and relive some incredible memories. What a talent, he will never be forgotten.
