'Twas a busy week here at ARTIStdirect.com, with many great articles and pieces. Let's reminisce, shall we?
ARTISTdirect.com helped Korn spread the word about their new Official Lyric Video for the hard to spell "Narcissistic Cannibal". The future is now as the rock/dubstep fusion combines the power of Korn with the smarts of Skrillex and Kill The Noise... We also took a look at Korn's Best collaborations in this nifty song and dance number.
Meanwhile, James 'Munky' Shaffer provided us with some background on 'Cannibal' with this See The Music feature.
Evanescence are back! The band was in Los Angeles to perform and ARTISTdirect.com Editor-in-Chief Rick Florino not only reviewed the new album AND the show at the Hollywood Palladium, he spent some time backstage with Amy Lee as she helped him "See The Music" for the song "What You Want".
Actor Jon Huertas (as seen on ABC's 'Castle') gave us a little sexy insight to his song "Sex Is The Word". Sadly, Sexy Sax Man does not make an appearance in the video.
Not to be outdone, Tyrese Gibson spoke about his own sexy ditty "Stay", and even tweeted about it out on The Twitter: "@Tyrese: Wow... @Artistdirect really put it out there.. Wow..." Thanks for the shout, Tyrese! The new album Open Invitation is out November 1st.
Dropkick Murphys told us all about their song "The Hardest Mile", which was very nice of them... They're on tour right now, in Las Vegas, tonight (Friday) and LA on Saturday. Then it's off to Australia for the band...
Meanwhile, Cobra Starship, who magically appeared on '90210' this week, explained what made their video for "You Make Me Feel" so special.
Last, but not least, the chaps in Five Finger Death Punch gave us an awesome 'Behind The Scenes' look at a day in their life. Come along for the ride, won't you?
Have a safe weekend, the ARTISTdirect.com Staff
p.s. Yes, technically it was from last week, but it's still worth noting: the many artists who tell us about Edgar Allan Poe's influences on them. Yes, Poe is still dead.
