pedal-2016-promoLast night was Alumni Takeover Weekend over at Bridgewater State University’s radio station WBIM 91.5FM. The reason it’s special and why I did a show is because that is my Alma Mater and I was a DJ at the radio station where I hosted the show Pedal To The Metal. It’s a tradition that has been going on for some time at the school during Homecoming weekend where alumni of the station will come and take over the station for a weekend. It’s an awesome tradition that I wish was more than just one weekend a year because it’s so nice to run into some familiar faces and hear some stories from some of the guys that came before you. I want to go ahead and thank John Coombs for putting this together once again and I hope he feels better, it wasn’t the same without him there. I also want to thank the school for allowing us to do this and the current staff at WBIM for allowing us to come and takeover the station from them. Here is my playlist from that featured a special Black Sabbath medley (of sorts).

For those of you that are fans of Mathcore legends The Dillinger Escape Plan are going to be both excited and maybe a little disappointed with this post. The mathcore legends are planning to release their sixth studio album Dissociation on October 14TH which is the band’s first since 2013’s One Of Us Is The Killer. The band also unleashed a single off the album to keep us occupied until then called Limerent Death, but the real news is outside of that. Guitarist Ben Weidman recently spoke to Noisey and he told them that the band is going to call it a day after this album. He said, “We are going to do the cycle for this album and that’s it. But there are a lot of things that go into this cycle. We have a full U.S. tour that we’ll be doing in the fall and then we’ll be doing a massive tour in Europe in the winter, and that will probably take us towards playing other areas like Australia or wherever we have to hit. Then I’m sure we’ll come back around and hit summer festivals and figure out what our very last shows will be around that time.” Nevertheless, he also talked about the track Limerent Death saying “[‘Limerent Death’] is one of my all-time favorite DEP songs. I feel that this song is one of the rare instances where all the members are feeling, and conveying, the same energy from start to end. A sharp focused dagger plowing its way through thick heavy walls.” Check it out below and check out the track listing for the new album below that:
