Foxy Shazam & Free Energy together at last!

Today marks the beginning of what might be the best tour of the year, SPIN Magazine is presenting Foxy Shazam & Free Energy on a 33 date US tour. Why should you care? Well, lets start with Foxy Shazam; a theatrical rock group who have recently inspired artists such as Meatloaf & Justin Hawkins (of The Darkness). Their blend of high energy rock n roll preaches, grooves, and will deeply infect one's soul until you can no longer control the spastic dance moves (flailing arms, head-banging compulsions, etc). Not to mention, frontman Eric Nally's deliverance tends to remind us of Freddie Mercury. Tracks to check out: "Wanna-Be Angel" and "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow"

Next up we have Free Energy, a straight forward pop rock group reminiscent of early 70s rockers Cheap Trick and Thin Lizzy while possibly channeling Tom Petty lyrically. While the music may be simple, it's also simply awesome. Prepare to get your dance on to tracks like "Something In Common", "Free Energy", and "Bang Pop"

The tour kicks off in Portland, ME tonight and is sure to rock a city near you soon. Full schedule below.

We've got the premiere of the new Linkin Park music video for "Waiting for the End". According to Joe Hahn, it was an experiment in "pushing the digital envelope as it pertains to the visual language created thus far" for their newest album, A Thousand Suns. The band's first "concept" effort hit stores a little over three weeks ago.
