Apothesary Announces New Album “Accept Loss Forever”

Fresh from a successful tour of the western U.S., the Northern California-based death metal/core quartet Apothesary has finished recording a sophomore full-length album. Titled “Accept Loss Forever,” the album has been described by the band as an “ode to suffering” and will be issued by M-Theory Audio on July 7th, 2017.

Taking advantage of a break in the busy touring schedule of his other band Hatchet, guitarist Clayton Cagle and his Apothesary band mates – guitarist/vocalist Jared Eandi, drummer Greg O’Neill and bassist Brittany Shankle – spent much of April on the road in support of 2016 EP “Sensory Overload.”

That was all just a precursor for “Accept Loss Forever,” which Cagle describes as an emotional and cathartic album that painstakingly captures the group’s evolution, musically and personally.

“’Accept Loss Forever’ is the true definition of ‘coming of age,’ as some of its material dates back to 2012 – when our average age was just 17 – and spans over half the life of the band,” he explains. “That makes these songs special, because they’re the most accurate representation of our growth both as a band and as human beings. Every significant moment of our transition from adolescence to adulthood has a place on this record, and I don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t have this outlet to help put life in perspective. It is my hope that the music on this record helps someone else in the same way it helped me, and the rest of Apothesary, to write. We can’t thank the M-Theory team more for believing in us enough to make this release a reality.”

Apothesary will next perform live on May 27th, headlining the seventh annual Metalfest of Middletown in Northern California. Later this summer, the group will share the stage with M-Theory label mates Helsott and Sicocis at Hollywood’s legendary Viper Room. Additional tour dates will be announced shortly.

Pentagram’s Bobby Liebling To Miss Tour, Reportedly Arrested For “Physical Abuse Of A Vulnerable Adult”

Pentagram has issued a statement about heading out on tour without Bobby Liebling, which can be read below.

Although it wasn’t mentioned in the statement, it appears Liebling was arrested last month for assault and “physical abuse of a vulnerable adult” according to court records.

The records site is currently crashing due to high traffic, but a screenshot can be seen below. Pentagram posted this message online about the situation:

“As was the case for the recently completed US shows, vocalist Bobby Liebling will not appear with Pentagram for previously booked European dates this summer.

“To elaborate, Bobby called on April 17 saying he had been admitted to the hospital. He called again on April 19, this time after being transferred to a Maryland detention facility. He’s now awaiting a preliminary hearing at which time it will be determined if a follow-up on any alleged charges are necessary. An update will be published when information is available. The band will be fulfilling all currently booked appearances with 36-year mainstay guitarist Victor Griffin performing all vocals.

“A personal note from the band: the outpouring of support on our recent US dates was outstanding! Your energy was matched ten-fold and encouraged us to carry on and deliver what many have called, even by skeptics, some of the best Pentagram performances they’ve seen. Thank you!

“We have the best fans in the world and if not for you, the legacy of this band would have died long ago. We won’t let you down now. The music lives on and as we move forward, we reiterate the lyrics of Curious Volume: ‘In this venture death waits in the shadows, but in survival the volume won’t die!’

“Sincerely, Victor, Greg, & Pete.”

Watch Zakk Wylde Shredding In Improvised Jam Session For EMGtv

Zakk Wylde made an improvised shred session in the below video for EMGtv. Wylde improvised over an Andy James track provided by Jam Track Central.

In other news Zakk Wylde and Ozzy Osborne have reunited after some years apart. Osbourne issued the following statement on the matter:

“Rock fans rejoice!

For the first time in more than a decade, OZZY OSBOURNE and Zakk Wylde are together again.

Known as one of rock’s most lethal singer and guitarist pairings, the two will hit the road for a series of OZZY headlining shows in the U.S. this summer and fall, beginning July 14 (*see dates below). While they’ve performed together over the years, these shows are the first collaboration for the duo for a full tour since 2006. These dates also mark OZZY’s first solo tour in the U.S. in years beyond one OZZY & Friends performance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, LA in October 2015.

OZZY and Zakk first teamed up 30 years ago when Zakk (who OZZY describes as “a f***ing absolutely amazing guitar player”) joined OZZY’s band in 1987; they last recorded in 2007 on OZZY’s acclaimed BLACK RAIN album.

In addition to reuniting with Zakk Wylde on guitar, OZZY’s band will include longtime collaborators Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards). OZZY’s tour dates kick off in July at the Rock USA Festival in Oshkosh, WI with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

“I’m so happy to be getting back on the road with Zakk, Blasko, Tommy and Adam,” says OZZY OSBOURNE. “This is what I do. This is where I belong, on the road.”

“I’m really looking forward to The HARDCORE POWAHLIFTING TRAINING SESSIONS with OZZY as well as playing music in between sets of HEAVY SQUATS, BENCHING and DEADLIFTS,” Zakk Wylde adds.

Next up for OZZY: prepping for a new solo album for 2018 on Epic.

OZZY’s initial 2017 tour dates are as follows:
DATE CITY VENUE

July
Fri, July 14 Oshkosh, WI Ozzy at Rock USA
Sun, July 16 Chicago, IL Chicago Open Air Festival
August
Wed, August 9 Sturgis, SD The Legendary Buffalo Chip
Mon, August 21 Cartersville, IL Moonstock 2017 Festival”
