If you're a regular reader of our site, you've probably noticed that bands seem to be getting robbed in St. Louis quite frequently these days. Recent victims include Yautja, For The Fallen Dreams, Traitors, and Eyehategod.

Notably, just hours ago, Maine hip-hop artist Spose was also the victim of theft in St. Louis. Literally while enjoying the meal in the photo below at Pappy's Smokehouse, his touring van was robbed, in broad daylight no less. Among the items stolen were several laptops, musical equipment, phones, cameras, clothes, and an iPad. You can read his statement below. Interestingly, Pappy's is within blocks of all of the previous St. Louis thefts we've detailed this year.


Spose at Pappys Smokehouse in St. Louis


"So, our tour van was just robbed around 12:30 pm today in St. Louis in broad daylight outside of Pappy's Smokehouse. We lost everything. Multiple laptops, all our musical equipment, my canon 5d mark ii camera and lenses, everything I use to record my music, my mic, my apogee duet, my ipad, clothes, phones, my friend GodDamnChan lost every beat he's ever made, all my external hard drives containing all the music I had made for my next album(s). We filed a police report and changed passwords and called State Farm but nothing can replace what we lost. We were in the restaurant for 30 minutes. And they essentially took my job, all the work I had done for the past two years building up to 2015. Gone. There's no amount of likes or comments that'll bring anything back, I just wanted to let the people who robbed us know FUCK YOU and let our fans know I'll be performing the next few shows with limited resources on this tour (and I will be a little late to the show tonight). So please know I normally would have a more organized set than whatever I'll have to scrounge together here on my way to Kansas. I'm done with St Louis, if you wanna see me perform in the future come to Chicago or something cuz St Louis is dead to me. Just took all the work I had to done to support and feed my family in 2015 away from me.

"If you know me, however, you know I'm not all doom and gloom and pessimistic. So, I would be remiss to not point out that my family is safe, nobody got hurt, I am healthy, I've lived a good, relatively painful, peaceful life and the sun is still shining. BUT SERIOUSLY FUCK WHOEVER STOLE MY SHIT!!!

"Lawrence, Kansas tonight at the Grenada with MC Chris and MC Lars."


Slipknot has effectively ended their slow bleed of track debuts by streaming their entire new album, .5: The Gray Chapter. You can listen to the entire thing below.






























A week ago they tackled Slayer, and now the sock puppet parody people are back with a reworking of the Rage Against The Machine song "Killing In The Name." You can check it out below.

For those wondering why the riffs are slightly different, I'm guessing it has something to do with song copyrights and YouTube monetization.




Slayer classic "Raining Blood" is the subject of a new sock puppet parody video. The song features alternate lyrics and slightly altered riffs as well. Raining bleach!!!




Slipknot lineup 2014

On October 2nd, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor made an appearance with radio host Corey Taylor (a female of no relation) of www.coreytaylortalks.com.

During their chat, Taylor admitted that he was "so upset" when fans figured out the identity of bassist Alessandro "Vman" Venturella via his hand tattoos, though Taylor was careful not to actually confirm Venturella's identity. Here's what Taylor had to say about the band's new bassist and drummer (rumored to be Jay Weinberg):

"They're not official bandmembers yet, but they are people who play with the band. Time will tell whether or not they're, like, full members."

"With this band, you earn everything. You're not just given that shot; you have to earn it. And so far, they're doing really well. And we're really enjoying jamming with them. But we're keeping it kind of on the DL, but not really, 'cause somebody already pointed out the tattoos. I was, like, 'Why didn't we make him wear gloves?' I was so upset. I was, like, we thought of all this stuff. We put the hood on him and then the mask, and it was, like, 'It's really hot, guys,' And then there is his tattoos for everybody [to see]. I was, like, 'Well, we missed the mark on that one.'"
