GHOST BRIGADE will release their third album, "Until Fear No Longer Defines Us"

Finnish metallers GHOST BRIGADE will release their third album, "Until Fear No Longer Defines Us", on August 19 in Europe and August 23 in North America via Season Of Mist.

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. In The Woods
02. Clawmaster
03. Chamber
04. Traces Of Liberty
05. Divine Act Of Lunacy
06. Grain
07. Breakwater
08. Cult Of Decay
09. Torn
10. Soulcarvers

"Until Fear No Longer Defines Us" will be released as a CD digipak limited to the first pressing, a double gatefold coloured vinyl with digital download card, and a collector's box with CD digipak, regular or unisex t-shirt, leather bracelet, postcard hand-signed by all band members and metal button badges. All of the above is available for pre-order from Season of Mist's e-shop.

The band is currently collaborating with French artist Fursy Teyssier on a video for the song "Clawmaster".

"I remember GHOST BRIGADE contacting me two years ago, asking for a music video," Fursy states. "Unfortunately I wasn't able to do it so we forgot the idea. Now this music video is back on the table and I'm very, very excited to start the production. I have experience in short films, but I never did any music video, so that will be a pretty new and unknown experience to me, and I'm extremely glad that it'll be together with GHOST BRIGADE. I loved their 'Isolation Songs' album, and now I'm listening to 'Until Fear No Longer Defines Us' every day. Great album, and I'm very proud they trust in my work... Those two months producing a six-and-a-half-minute music video will be intense to me…"

GHOST BRIGADE's sophomore CD, 2009's "Isolation Songs", entered the official chart in Finland at position No. 22.

DIR EN GREY: New Album Cover Artwork, Track Listing Revealed

Japanese rockers DIR EN GREY will release their eighth studio album, "Dum Spiro Spero", two years and ten months after "Uroboros", which garnered overwhelming support as the strongest and the maddest record resonating across the globe.

In our time when heavy rock music has become diversified, DIR EN GREY's deep and extensive, unique perspective is once again borderless, uncategorized. This record which encapsulates the band's present will not only secure tremendous support from the hardcore devotees, but will surely gain recognition from heavy rock fans, including guitar enthusiasts and Western-music-obsessed music fans.

There are 14 tracks, including "Hageshisa To, Kono Mune No Naka De Karamitsuita Shakunetsu No Yami" (featured on "Saw 3D" soundtrack), "Lotus", "Different Sense" as single-cut tracks in this album.

The Steve Miller Band new album

Let Your Hair Down

The Steve Miller Band
Release Date: April 19, 2011

Following the success of 2010's number one blues album, BINGO!, which was recently nominated as ‘Blues Rock Album of the Year’ by the Blues Foundation, The Steve Miller Band return with yet another new offering, Let Your Hair Down, which lands in stores April 19 on Miller’s Space Cowboy Records in partnership with Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records.

The Steve Miller Band

Let Your Hair Down features the last recordings by harmonica virtuoso Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in harmony” for thirty-three years. Noted Pink Floyd album cover artist Storm Thorgerson, who also did the wonderfully whimsical cover to BINGO! returns to Let Your Hair Down with one of the great album covers of his career.

The new album caps one of the busiest years of Miller’s accomplished career. In addition to the release last year of the acclaimed first new Steve Miller Band album in seventeen years (“cause for celebration,” said The Huffington Post), Miller not only led a sold out tour across the United States and Canada, but returned to Europe for the first time in more than twenty-five years for a triumphant round of dates culminating in a sold out Royal Albert Hall concert in London.

One of rock music’s all-time greats, The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound made him one of the key artists in classic rock radio. He is the Gangster of Love. Some people call him Maurice, the Midnight Toker or the Space Cowboy. And, as Let Your Hair Down so aptly demonstrates, Steve “Guitar” Miller still speaks in the pompitus of love.
