Rex Brown Unleashes Trailer for ‘Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera’ Book

Da Capo Press Those looking to get more insight into one of metal’s most popular bands — Pantera — should have plenty of opportunities over the next couple of years. Frontman Phil Anselmo is currently working on his memoir , but first fans will be able to look behind the curtain with bassist Rex Brown ‘s autobiography, ‘Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story of Pantera,’ which arrives next month. The bassist penned the 320-page book primarily about his time with Pantera from his own honest perspective as he viewed it. The page-turner arrives in stores March 12 through Da Capo Press , and a book trailer has surfaced online. In it, Brown states, “Barely a day passes that I don’t think about Pantera. I dream about Pantera, I have nightmares about Pantera and it’s always there and I imagine it always will be. It’s inevitable.” He goes on to add that he frequently thinks of the band’s common bond and how it came to an end all too soon. He states, “As one we lived and breathed every second of the wild ride that changed our lives in so many ways and came to a sickening, pre-mature end one night in Columbus in 2004,” referring to the tragic slaying of Dimebag Darrell onstage in December of that year. In addition to Pantera, Brown played bass with his Pantera bandmates Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell with country outlaw David Allan Coe in the one-off project Rebel Meets Rebel. He followed that with a lengthy stint in Down , fronted by Pantera’s Phil Anselmo, before eventually parting ways with the band and becoming a member of Kill Devil Hill in 2010.

Suicidal Tendencies Announce 2013 Tour Dates in Support of New Album

Theo Wargo, Getty Images It’s time to start stocking up on extra padding as Suicidal Tendencies have announced their impending return with a brand-new full-length album and a full-on tour to follow. The band will release their ‘Who’s Afraid?’ album on March 26 and you can bet the group’s ninth release is filled with all the energy and fury of its predecessors. Details on the disc are scarce at this point, but it’s likely that the group will incorporate songs from the album into their set lists when they tour in April. Frontman ‘Cyco Miko’ Muir stated last year of their hopes for their new music, “The way we look at it is that next year will be the 30th anniversary of our first record. When we look at a record, we don’t want to have it sound like 2012. We want it to sound awesome 25 years from now, so when a kid who wasn’t even born when we made it listens to it, he’s like, ‘Damn, that’s a cool record!’” The group has dubbed their upcoming trek the ‘Slam City’ tour. It launches April 11 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco and runs through a May 12 finale in San Diego. Suicidal Tendencies revealed that DRI will be joining them for the first part of the run, with Sick of It All taking over as primary support on the back end. Meanwhile, Wake the Dead will serve as the opening act throughout the run and the band is teasing the possibility of another great band who they hope to have on board for the first four shows of the trek.
