The Darkness Frontman Justin Hawkins Falls Off Stage in Sweden

Ilya S. Savenok, Getty Images The Darkness are known for their boundless energy and bringing their all to their live shows, but frontman Justin Hawkins’ enthusiasm got the better of him at a recent show in Stockholm, Sweden when he took a tumble into the crowd. Hawkins can be seen in the video footage below galloping around the stage to the beat of the song, trying to amp up the crowd, but he appears not to have realized how close he was to the front of the stage and quickly disappears from view. However, the fall happened perfectly to where the backing vocals would be featured first. The singer was quite the trooper though, still delivering his parts while regaining his bearings and eventually crawling back onstage to continue the track without missing a beat. The Darkness are currently on a world tour in support of their ‘Hot Cakes’ album. However, guitarist Dan Hawkins recently revealed that the band intend on entering the studio early next year to make sure they have a quick turnaround between discs.

Testament’s Alex Skolnick + Eric Peterson Talk Thrash on Fox Station

Facebook: Testament Whenever a metal band gets some attention from the mainstream media without having to go on a drunken or drug-fueled rampage, we as fans definitely count it as a win for our beloved subculture. However, it’s even greater when a hilarious dichotomy is created between vanilla news anchors and metal musicians, which is what happened earlier this week (Feb. 21) when Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson of Testament stopped by a Fox news program in Michigan. Skolnick and Peterson are 2/5 of the current all-star Testament lineup, who are currently headlining the ‘ Dark Roots of Thrash ‘ tour. Shortly after filming a concert DVD in Long Island, N.Y., the duel shredders stopped by Fox 17 in Grand Rapids, Mich. to talk thrash with one of the most hilariously nerdy news anchors on the planet. The guitarists remained incredibly light-hearted during the interview, even when challenged with pressing questions such as, “What’s this thrash metal?” and “25 years you’ve been doing this. (Actually it’s 30, but who’s counting?) How do you maintain your music and not, you know, fall, you know, I guess, everything else, making you guys change the way you do your music? How do you keep it the same?” to which Skolnick replied, “It’s not the same,” while Peterson offered a more detailed answer about not allowing yourself to become too commercial. Skolnick offered some interesting insight on their live shows, noting that Testament are still bringing in young fans while keeping the old school thrashers as well. He explained, “Maybe the first time around with the band, it might have not been a show you would bring your family [to]. Now, you’ve got families coming. You’ve got kids who weren’t even born yet when our first album came out showing up with their parents who were fans back in the late ’80s or early ’90s.” Skolnick and Peterson even invited the Fox host to stage dive at tonight’s show, although the anchor politely declined.

Chris Cornell’s Brother Peter Cornell Releases New Music

YouTube Sibling rivalry can be tough, but it looks as though there’s nothing but love within the Cornell family. Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell may be a superstar, but the rocker is happy to salute his brother Peter, who is also a singer/songwriter. During the Cornell brothers’ first ever appearance ever together onstage together in 2011, Chris introduced Peter stating, “He was that guy for me. He was the guy that was the coolest person on Earth. He was also the guy, cause I was little, that he would beat the s— out of anybody if they f—ed with me.” Chris also credited Peter with turning him onto some great music at a young age. Now, Peter has released a couple of new songs via SoundCloud players. ‘Madman’ is a foot-stomping, bluesy rocker and it’s clear from listening that Peter and his brother Chris share vocal similarities. ‘Insides,’ meanwhile, also has some of that bluesy delivery that ‘Madman’ has. Check out Peter Cornell’s song clips for both tracks [via ] below, as well as his 2011 live performance of ‘I’m Still Loving You.’ Listen to Peter Cornell’s ‘Madman’ Listen to Peter Cornell’s ‘Insides’ Watch Peter Cornell Perform ‘I’m Still Loving You’ in 2011 [button href=”” title=”Next: Watch Chris Cornell Perform at Commander-in-Chief’s Ball” align=”center”]
