    AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows has told ABC Radio that the band could start working on the follow-up to 2016's "The Stage" album this fall. "Maybe October, November we'll start thinking about getting together and just throwing ideas around," the singer said. "We usually don't even write anything the first few weeks, we just kinda talk and show each other things: 'Here's some chords, here's some ideas, what do we want this thing to sound like?' So that's still in the early stages. But it's exciting."Shadows recently revealed that AVENGED SEVENFOLD's legal battle with its former label, Warner Bros. Records, is not yet resolved, saying that the group wants to settle the matter before it begins work on a new LP. "We have a couple things we're looking at, but right now we're still dealing with the label situation, we're dealing with the lawsuit still and just — a couple of things that we just got to kind of clean up before we move on to the next record," he told Billboard.Warner Bros. sued AVENGED SEVENFOLD in late 2015 after the band left the label by citing the California Labor Code's "seven-year rule."The rule allows for parties to exit contracts after seven years if certain unfavorable conditions exist. But a provision in the rule allows labels to collect money that would have been made on undelivered albums.Warner Bros. is seeking damages based on the fact that AVENGED SEVENFOLD had one album left on its contract, while the band has argued that extensive turnover in the label's staff led to an unsatisfactory working relationship.While that case was originally expected to go to trial in December of last year, it appears to have since been delayed to an as-yet unspecified date.The band has since moved on to Capitol, which issued "The Stage" as a surprise release in October 2016.AVENGED SEVENFOLD will tour North America this summer with PROPHETS OF RAGE and THREE DAYS GRACE.

    Industrial metal pioneers MINISTRY have once again recruited Derek Abrams to play drums on their upcoming North American tour, which kicks off Thursday night (March 22) at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, California. Abrams originally joined MINISTRY last year and sat behind the kit for the band's fall 2017 run of dates.Says Abrams in a statement: "I'm super excited to get back out on the road with MINISTRY for the 2018 North America tour that kicks off [Thursday] in Anaheim. I can't express enough gratitude to the band and crew to be able to be a part of this family. I look forward to seeing you at a show. If we don't hit your city this time, there is a chance we will in the fall."Although it was announced last month that Joey Jordison would join MINISTRY on the road in North America this spring and he took part in some of the early rehearsals for the trek, the former SLIPKNOT drummer is no longer taking part in the tour.The rest of the tour's guest lineup will feature vocalist Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY), and live scratcher DJ Swamp (BECK, THE CRYSTAL METHOD), who will join longtime bandmembers Sin Quirin and Cesar Soto on guitars, Tony Campos (FEAR FACTORY, STATIC-X, ASESINO, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) on bass, and keyboardist John Bechdel (KILLING JOKE, FEAR FACTORY).For these dates, MINISTRY's will present a whole new set list that will include more new songs from "AmeriKKKant". Said Al Jourgensen, "Old friends, new music... Dream lineup, nightmare world. Get your ass to this show...this one will be memorable."With his "P.T.-Barnum-meets-RAGE-AGAINST-THE-MACHINE" ringmaster style, Jourgensen will front this motley crew of killer musicians, along with giant inflatable Trump chickens, video screens projecting politically imbued images to compliment the music, and a couple of Antifa soldiers."I am very honored to be part of MINISTRY's 'all-star' crew for the upcoming 'Amerikkant' tour," said Burton C. Bell. "Working with Al over the years has been a blast and a dream come true, and to be part of another MINISTRY album was another milestone in my career. Hanging, laughing, playing with Al, JB, Sin, Cesar and Tony is always a good time. I've known all these characters for some time, and they will never get old! I expect this tour to be super fun. Like the songs goes, 'my whole life is making music with my friends, and I can't wait to get on the road again...'"

    Full production rehearsals have begun for the US/Canada AmeriKKKant Tour! It all starts on Thursday, at the House Of Blues in Anaheim...get your tickets here:

    Gene Simmons has voiced his concern about the "heinous collateral damage" caused by the ongoing #MeToo movement, saying that "anybody can say anything and there's no presumption of innocence."The #MeToo and Time's Up movements were launched following the sexual misconduct scandal surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The scandal inspired many women to come forward to accuse not only Weinstein but others in the entertainment industry and beyond."I think it's wonderful for women to be engaged in the conversation and the positive side is there have been a lot of bad guys who have gotten away with it [and aren't anymore] — that's a good thing," Simmons told the Toronto Sun."The collateral damage is heinous because anybody can say anything and there's no presumption of innocence," he added. That's the problem. The problem is you don't have your day in court."As soon as somebody cries and the mascara runs, the guy's life is ruined and it's over. He may be guilty or he may be innocent but what happened to our justice system? You'll make more money. You'll embarrass him every day. Instead of in a news conference which gets you no money. I'm totally in support of anything and everything that follows the rule of law. Get a lawyer. Do it legitimately."Gene, who is renowned for his sexual appetite and decades of consensual conquests, was himself accused on social media of behaving inappropriately around at least two women. But he shot down the allegations during an interview with BBC "Hardtalk", saying: "All of a sudden, 44 years on in a rock band, somebody's coming up and saying, 'This guy is a bad guy.' It's not true. I think the climate is horrifically bad and yet at the same time empowering to the right women. There are some really bad guys out there; I just happen not to be one of them."Weinstein's career was brought to a halt after dozens of women in the entertainment industry — including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie — accused him of varying degrees of sexual misconduct over the years.A spokeswoman for Weinstein has repeatedly denied allegations "of non-consensual sex." Weinstein has also apologized for "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past."
