HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM GRUNGEREPORT.NET, PREVIEW OF 2013
Everybody’s least favorite webmaster/TMZReport owner, according to the comments section…
Happy New Years from GrungeReport.net! Hope everybody had an exciting New Years, was a boring one as usual in The O.C. We don’t get to see Carson Daly’s balls drop here. Anyways, we’re aiming at changing the name of GrungeReport.net by March 1st, maybe even before that. I think everyone will be satisfied with the new name and it will better represent what the site is about now. We’ll be launching donations soon to help pay for the expansion of the site, with some rewards to readers who donate. 2013 should be an exciting year for the site. With our growing traffic and upcoming name change I expect more interviews on the site this year. Late last year we had interviews with Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, The Smashing Pumpkins’ Nicole Fiorentino, and the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover. Today we have up our new interview with Jane’s Addiction frontman and alternative rock pioneer Perry Farrell.
When it comes to alternative rock itself, 2013 should be an exciting year. Queens of the Stone Age and Alice In Chains will release new albums by early summer 2013. Dave Grohl will release his Sound City documentary and soundtrack. Jeff Ament told me that in March Pearl Jam will decide on their plans regarding completing their new album, I think it will be out by the fall, hopefully followed by a long awaited Pearl Jam World Tour. Soundgarden will tour, hopefully with more tour dates announced for fans in the south. Tool will hopefully release their new album, you never really know with them though. What we do know is that the band are pretty far along writing the music to the album. Mad Season featuring Mark Lanegan on vocals will release a few new tracks on the Above reissue box set. Lanegan is also rumored to have a covers album in the works, along with another studio album.
