Hardcore Superstar Release 'Baboon' Single

I am so glad it is Friday. I swear, I feel like I'm sucking wind nonstop now. I just can't seem to get ahead anywhere in life right now and I'm tired.


From my inbox:

2018 is proving to be wild year for the Swedish purveyors of Street Metal as they shape up to release their highly anticipated new album You Can’t Kill My Rock N’ Roll through GAIN Music Entertainment on September 21st 2018.

So far this year the band have enjoyed massive radio success and critical acclaim with the release of their first three singles, ‘Have Mercy On Me’, ‘Bring The House Down’ and ‘Electric Rider’ and they are now about to cause even more mayhem and frenzy with their new single and video for ‘Baboon’.
Recorded at the beautiful Österlyckan Studios just outside of Gothenburg, Baboon is the perfect mixture of aggression, attitude and debauchery, all the things we come to expect from a HARDCORE SUPERSTAR release, and for the video, the band have once again partnered with the acclaimed Swedish filmmaker ‘Max Ljungberg’ to produce a hilarious 70’s cop themed promo, complete with car chases, shoot outs and powdered donuts!
The single will be available on all digital platforms May 18th and will be followed up as an exclusive, limited edition 7” vinyl single.

Hardcore Superstar - You Can't Kill My Rock 'n Roll (pre-order)

Since the debut album was unleashed in 1998, Hardcore Superstar have crossed the globe multiple times sharing stages with Rock and Metal Royalty including AC/DC, Aerosmith, Kiss and Motörhead. They have also performed at the world’s largest and most distinguished Rock Festivals such as Wacken, Download, Loudpark, and SwedenRock to name just a few.

More dates have been added to the bands current, highly successful tour including a tour of Australia and the fun doesn’t stop there as there are more dates to add and countries to visit that will be announced soon. 2018 is the bands 20th anniversary as a recording and touring artist and the celebrations will include some very special events.

The Steven Tyler Documentary Looks Pretty Awesome

We now have a look at the upcoming Steven Tyler documentary Out On A Limb. It just opened to much fanfare at the Nashville Film Festival.

Out On a Limb takes a look at Steven's career, but really focuses on his solo record and turn to country music as an independent artist. He's a living legend and the frontman of my favorite band.

I'm no country fan but I'm looking forward to this movie. It comes out via Momentum Pictures on May 15.




The Amazon Music Hair Metal Station Is Really Good

Last night, Eric and I were driving home from going out for pizza. He grabbed his phone and hit the Bluetooth and said "turn on the hair metal station, it's really good." I sort of stared at him because 1) We have satellite radio, so we get Hair Nation and 2) We own every song on the Amazon Hair Metal station. Still, I relented and turned it on. Eric commented on every song that came up: "November Rain," - Classic! "Is This Love?" - Amazing.

I stared at him again.


Then DLR-era Van Halen popped up. Then Aerosmith and I started to get it. There were bands on here that aren't really Hair Metal but are our favorites and the convenience of having the bands all grouped together was appealing.

So we're bopping down the highway,listening to some Heart and then reminiscing about the time Carrie Underwood did "Alone" on American Idol like a decade ago (seriously).

So for whatever it's worth, you should give the Amazon Music "Hair Metal" station a try, especially if you don't have a satellite radio subscription. I have the more expensive Unlimited subscription and now I can't imagine life without it - basically any song in the world, immediately at my fingertips, streaming on my phone and downloaded for offline use too.
