    BRING ME THE HORIZON singer Oli Sykes has said in a new interview that he hopes to "push it a bit weirder" on the band's next album.Even though he belives BRING ME THE HORIZON took a different direction on its latest release, "That's The Spirit", the frontman admits the group didn't venture too far outside its comfort zone while making the record. He told NME: "People thought 'That's The Spirit' was a very polished pop rock album. It's not. I think it’s inventive and unique, but it's still safe in a way. We knew the songs were going to connect well with people. Next time I think we want to push it a bit weirder. Who knows?"Sykes said BRING ME THE HORIZON might experiment with "a darker, dance-y kind of sound" on its next album, namechecking LINKIN PARK and MASSIVE ATTACK as influences. He added: "That's my favorite part — it's something we do that comes across really well live you know when the song to us has a breakdown or like a heavy dance kind of vibe to it. You know, there's not many acts like that. If there was some bridge between what we're doing, somewhere between artists like PRODIGY or MASSIVE ATTACK and stuff like that."He continued: "I don't know especially if we're thinking like festivals and stuff, then I like that idea like a darker dance-y kind of sound, but I'm literally just… I'm thinking out loud here, 'cause we could go completely opposite to that, you know."Oli said that BRING ME THE HORIZON will probably take "at least a good month" off before they begin writing again. He explained: "It's been an intense year for us, and not just in professional terms but, like, personal too. Some of the band have had a lot on their plates and stuff. We do enjoy writing organically and letting something happen, but we've been working pretty relentlessly for the last album."We need to maybe take a break. [Keyboardist] Jordan's [Fish] got a kid now, people have got families and stuff. We need to take a bit of time to chill out and then really get hungry to write again."It's going to be a tough one, because we never want to write the same album again. I don't even know what it's going to sound like, but it's going to sound different."

    Former AC/DC Drummer PHIL RUDD Is Filming New Video To Promote 'Head Job' Solo Album According to the Bay Of Plenty Times, former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is making a video in Tauranga, New Zealand to promote his solo album, "Head Job", which is being re-released by London-based agents Simon Britton and Alan "Big Al" Bellman, of record company Wave 365 Media, whom Rudd signed a deal with in August.Rudd revealed a couple of months ago that he underwent an emergency procedure after suffering a heart attack, but that he's already recuperated and ready to return to his kit. 'Rudd, who was booted out of AC/DC following his arrest in 2014 on numerous charges, will tour Europe in the fall and also give a masterclass at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in Liverpool. Asked if he would like to rejoin AC/DC, he said: "If Angus [Young, guitar] wanted me to play, then that is up to him, but I don't really want to play with Axl Rose. I don't really rate him."It was the original release of "Head Job" in 2014 that sparked Rudd's initial meltdown, with the drummer allegedly so angry at a personal assistant over the way the release was promoted that he threatened to have the man and his daughter killed.Police investigating that claim against Rudd also found him in possession of drugs when they raided his home in November 2014.Although Rudd played on AC/DC's latest album, "Rock Or Bust", the band recruited Chris Slade to replace Rudd for touring purposes. Slade, who had previously played in the band from 1990 to 1993, remains part of the lineup.Rudd played in several Melbourne bands such as BUSTER BROWN and THE COLOURED BALLS before joining up with AC/DC in 1975 and making his debut on their second album, "T.N.T."He played on 12 of the band's 16 studio albums, including massive sellers like "Highway To Hell" and "Back In Black"."Head Job" was recorded with Kiwi musicians Allan Badger of Rotorua and Geoffrey Martin of Auckland.

    Blank Slate Creative recently conducted an interview with KORN singer Jonathan Davis. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).On the title of the new KORN album, "The Serenity Of Suffering":Jonathan: "Usually my man Munk [KORN guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer] comes up with album titles, 'cause he's really good at it; he gets fifty different titles together and we all pick one. But this time, I just felt this one that I came up with just really nailed what I was going through when I was writing the record. It's a place I always go to; it's the inspiration when I'm writing music. It's called 'The Serenity Of Suffering', and that title means that I've always battled dark feelings in my life, and I've been there so much that I feel more comfortable there than I do when I'm in a happy spot. I'm not saying that I don't enjoy being happy, 'cause I do; I've got lots of things to be happy about. I have a beautiful family, I get to tour the world and do what I love. But I spend more time in that dark place than I do in a happy place, so the title just wrapped up what I was going through with the record and [the themes covered in] the lyrics."On working with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES, MASTODON and RUSH:Jonathan: "Nick really captured the band. He's an amazing producer. Sonically, he made this band sound heavier than it's ever sounded. I think he walked into the recording studio when the guys were writing on a mission to bring out that heaviness back into KORN. And I think between him and Munky and Head [KORN guitarist Brian Welch], they achieved that. And with me, he came out to Bakersfield, to my studio, and he really pushed me and wouldn't let me just say, 'I don't wanna do that song,' that I wasn't necessarily feeling that. He's all, 'It's a good song, man. You've just gotta keep at it, keep trying.' And he really pushed me to to the point where I actually came up with some really interesting stuff on the songs."According to music industry web site Hits Daily Double, "The Serenity Of Suffering" is likely to sell between 40,000 and 45,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The SPS figure is expected to be between 45,000 and 50,000.SPS, a practice used by Billboard magazine, stands for "sales plus streaming," which includes album sales and converted track sales plus converted streaming data.For those interested: 10 tracks sold equal one album sale (since $1.29, the cost for an individual track, multiplied by ten gives you $12.99, a common price for an album, and 1,500 streams is equivalent to one album sale."The Serenity Of Suffering" features a guest appearance by SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor on the song "A Different World".
