A supergroup featuring Dave Grohl and Slipknot's Corey Taylor has landed a major new record deal. Teenage Time Killer, formed by Corrosion Of Conformity star Reed Mullin, will release a debut album in 2015 via Rise Records.
The band also features former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri and Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe.
Teenage Time Killer recorded their first album at Grohl's 606 Studio in California.
Ex-Dead Kennedys leader Jello Biafra, Black Flag's Keith Morris, Max Cavalera of Soulfly and members of punk icons The Misfits will also guest on the group's first album.
Brazilian rocker Max Cavalera has shot down all hope of a full Sepultura reunion just weeks after his brother Igor suggested he'd like to get the classic line-up back together. Igor quit the group to spend more time with his family a decade ago, almost 10 years after Max departed when his wife was fired as the band's manager in 1996, but in a recent interview, he revealed he'd consider a get together.
He said, "There's nothing solid. The only solid thing right now, it's what I do with Max (Cavalera Conspiracy). The whole Sepultura thing, it's something that we don't know if it's gonna happen or not. To be honest, I really hope one day we can do this in a very cool way."
Guitarist Andreas Kisser, who recently admitted the reunion reports are "a pain in the a**", has since dismissed all talk of a get together and now it appears Max is not keen on the idea either.
He tells Australian radio presenter Andrew Haug, "I actually lost all kinds of hope for it (reunion). Honestly, today, I don't see it happening, just because of how our lives are and how those guys' (the other members of Sepultura) lives are... We live in completely different worlds from those guys... It won't be the same. The magic is gone.
"I don't think a reunion would be the best thing for Sepultura... I kind of prefer (for) it to stay like this and leave the memory how it was.
"It was a great band... I'm proud of the records... and you can go to YouTube and check out all the old videos and how great it was, and kind of leave it like that."
The brothers behind Brazilian rock icons Sepultura are considering a reunion with their bandmates, almost 10 years after Igor Cavalera quit the group to spend more time with his family. His departure came a decade after brother Max Cavalera quit the band when his wife was fired as the act's manager in 1996.
But now Igor has revealed he hopes to put the band's classic line-up back together.
He says, "I hope so, but there's nothing solid. The only solid thing right now, it's what I do with Max (Cavalera Conspiracy). The whole Sepultura thing, it's something that we don't know if it's gonna happen or not. To be honest, I really hope one day we can do this in a very cool way."
But first he has to convince guitarist Andreas Kisser, who recently admitted the reunion reports are "a pain in the a**", adding the band's current line-up is upset by "all the pressure of this reunion bulls**t".
Rocker Duff Mckagan will make his U.S. stage return as part of Guns N' Roses by reuniting with frontman Axl Rose at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards on Wednesday (23Apr14). The bassist has been filling in for Tommy Stinson, who is currently on the road with his reunited group The Replacements, on five recent dates on the band's South American tour, and he will join the Sweet Child o' Mine hitmakers once more as they perform at the Club Nokia prizegiving in Los Angeles this week.
McKagan originally quit Guns N' Roses in 1997, but he will be on hand to help Rose celebrate as the recipient of the 2014 Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award.
Meanwhile, heavy rockers Suicide Silence will also debut a new member at the Golden Gods Awards after hiring Hernan 'Eddie' Hermida to replace late frontman Mitch Lucker following his death in a motorcycle accident in 2012. The gig will mark Hermida's first U.S. show with the group, which will also welcome former Sepultura co-founder Max Cavalera to the line up for a special performance.
Other artists due to take the stage at the Golden Gods Awards include Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Zakk Wylde and The Pretty Reckless.
