Did you know that Bring Me The Horizon has clips of songs off their upcoming album, That's The Spirit exclusively on Spotify? The full songs for "Happy Song", "Throne" and "True Friends" can be purchased on iTunes, or just listened to through Spotify, but you can also hear clips of "Doomed", "Follow You", "What You Need', and most recently, "Avalanche."
Each clip is only 30 seconds, but for those who are curious about what's yet to come, its definitely something.
The clips aren't like the clips you would hear on iTunes where its a section of the song. Its several short clips all mashed together from the song. It sort of almost sounds like the song is being fast forwarded quickly, so you only get a vague idea of the songs.
We can't say a ton about the clips, but we can say we are slightly more intrigued. With the clips being the way they are, its slightly hard to get a feel for the songs, but what we are managing to catch is pretty great.
Check them out over on Bring Me The Horizon's Spotify page! The last one added was, "Avalanche" just yesterday (August 30), and there definitely will be more coming to Spotify as we get closer to the release of the album.

On August 25, Art Of Dying released a lyric video for the second single off of their latest EP, Rise Up. This song is called, "Everything" and is incredibly beautiful.
The song actually tells a story of late night thoughts after an argument, and the video goes with that very well. Its a simple video, but it gives us the idea that someone is walking around a city in the middle of the night as the lyrics appear anywhere possible.
We won't give it all away, just check it out for yourself.
Remember that this song is on Art Of Dying's Rise Up EP, which you can get now on iTunes!

On this day in 1998, Rob Zombie released his first solo album, Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International. He had semi recently departed from his band White Zombie, which had been together for thirteen years, and then did began being incredibly successful on his own.
October 11 marks the 21 year mark of the release of Korn's debut, self titled album and to celebrate, they will be embarking on a tour with Suicide Silence and Islander beginning October 1.
The tour goes from October 1 through October 30, and ironically, they do not have a show scheduled for the 11th. On the 10th, however, will be the Rock Allegiance festival, so there's a high chance they will make some mention of the anniversary there. They also will be performing at Knotfest on October 24, if anyone is interested.
All the tour dates can be found below and tickets are available now! VIP packages are also available. The VIP packages come in two different tiers. The first is the Gold Package which gives a general admission ticket, early access to the show (30 minutes before the doors open), a stripped down performance of one song from the band, and a VIP laminate.
That package is limited but the Platinum Package is limited to just 40 people per night. This one allows you to enter one hour before the doors open, gives you a different laminate, you will get to meet the band and get a picture with them, a stripped down performance of a song, and a four song cassette tape.

It was announced a couple weeks ago now that Bring Me The Horizon will be releasing a brand new album called 'That's The Spirit' on September 11. To build up the hype and anticipation just a little bit more, the band has released a third song off the album. This one is called "True Friends" and tells a sadly very real tale of betrayal.
"I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you. I will forget, but I will never forget you. Don't you know? Don't you know true friends stab you in the front? I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you. You broke my heart and there's nothing you can do. And now you know -true friends stab you in the front."
Finally someone pointed out that friends can break your heart too. Much like the other two releases thus far, "Throne" and "Happy Song", lyrical genius is being shown. This album is surely going to be kick ass. You can pre-order it now on iTunes, and can catch Bring Me The Horizon on tour this October with Issues and Pvris! In the mist of that tour is also the Rock Allegiance, Buzzfest, and Aftershock Festivals. For more information, please visit the Bring Me The Horizon website!
So, tell us -what do you think of "True Friends"? Or anything else BMTH has released from That's The Spirit thus far? Let us know here in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter.
Today, Pop Evil is releasing their fifth studio album, Up!
In celebration of the album dropping, the band's hometown did something rather special. Grand Rapids, Michigan declared today, August 21, to be Pop Evil day!
The mayor of Grand Rapids, George Heartwell was quoted saying, "The City of Grand Rapids appreciates the universal and timeless qualities that identify all forms of visual and performing art. "We have built a reputation of celebrating and encouraging artistic freedom, creativity and self expression. I appreciate the music that Grand Rapids’ own Pop Evil creates for that same reason. The group is a true original that has shown its commitment to their fans and to our West Michigan community."
Rightfully so, the band is thrilled and honored by this announcement. After all, its not every day you have a day dedicated to you! This announcement was a total surprise to everyone, the band included.
"Wow, what an incredible honor this is, and honestly we didn't see it coming!"Leigh Kakaty (Pop Evil's frontman) was quoted saying. "Our management and label know how to keep a good secret! We take a lot of pride in where we come from and this will never be forgotten."
If you would like to see a clip of the announcement, you can do so on Fox's website!
You can get the album now on iTunes, Amazon, or wherever else music is sold! The band is also on tour now through the end of September. They then will have a couple week break, then play the Rock Allegiance festival and Aftershock fest. For more information, please visit Pop Evil's website!
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
