Judas Priest & Mastodon add show at The Paramount in LI

Judas Priest live at Barclays Center last year

Yesterday it was announced that heavy metal legends Judas Priest and Mastodon would be joining forces for a fall North American tour, with NYC’s closest stop set to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on September 7 [get tix]. A few more dates were added to the trek recently, including a stop at The Paramount in Huntington, NY on November 7 [tix].

Meanwhile, Mastodon unleashed their sixth studio album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, last summer under Reprise Records. They also recently confirmed a few more dates of their co-headline “Missing Link Tour” with Clutch (did you catch our coverage of the NYC show last month?).

Circa Survive playing all of “Juturna” on fall tour (NYC included)

Circa Survive live at The Paramount earlier this year

Philly alt/prog rockers Circa Survive will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the release of their first album, Juturna, with a fall North American tour that will see the band performing said 2005 album in its entirety at every stop. Support on the journey will come from California rockers RX Bandits.

Circa Survive‘s lead vocalist Anthony Green had the following to say regarding the impending trip:

It’s hard to believe this album is ten years old because it still means so much to me. It’s the first chapter in the story of Circa Survive and I owe so much to it. Playing these songs is like reading a message I wrote to myself from the past and I can’t wait celebrate them with new and old fans.

The trek kicks off in New York City at Best Buy Theater on October 23 and runs through late November. NYC tickets go on sale this Friday (7/31) at noon. VIP tickets, which includes a show poster, Q&A session and exclusive acoustic performance, an LP with limited screen printed cover, wall flag and more, can be purchased here.

Check out all dates and stream Juturna (which will see a deluxe edition reissue on 10/30) in full, below…

Photos: Corey Taylor brought his book release tour to Irving Plaza



Corey Taylor recently wrapped up a two-week-long acoustic tour that celebrated the release of his new book on Da Capo Press, You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look at the Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left (pick it up here).

Taylor infiltrated a sold out Irving Plaza in New York City on July 7 that saw the Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman take to the stage at 8pm sharp to Iron Maiden‘s “Run to the Hills,” which was followed with a nearly hour-long monologue/rant, plus Q&A session, instead of the usual book reading. Fans were then treated to an hour-and-a-half long acoustic set that featured second guitarist Jason Christopher on select tracks. A packed house at Irving belted out lyrics to cover songs/medleys of Metallica, Bon Jovi, Prince, Chris Isaak, Green Day, Fear, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and more, including a few Stone Sour and Slipknot cuts. Corey held back tears as he ended his two-and-a-half-hour display to a thunderous round of applause and roaring cheers from the elated NYC crowd.

Corey Taylor will be back in the NYC-area this Saturday night (8/1) at the Jones Beach Theater with Slipknot and their “Summer’s Last Stand Tour.” Tickets to the show, which also features Lamb of God, Bullet For My Valentine and Motionless In White, are still available.

Belated pics from the Irving Plaza performance continue below…
