THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Release Performanc​e Demo Video

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are currently touring as part of the Van’s Warped Tour 2013. At the Ventura, CA stop of the tour, Brian Eschbach, Ryan Knight, Max Lavelle, and Alan Cassidy, recorded their parts for Into the Everblack from the band’s new album, Everblack. The performance is streaming now at metalblade.com/bdm. Videos for each individual performance are posted at youtube.com/blackdahliamurdertv.

 Audio Hammer producer Mark Lewis comments specifically on Knight’s leads on Everblack:

“Ryan Knight’s leads on Everblack are nothing short of phenomenal. I grew up listening to the best in the era of shred, and I can honestly say these solos rank up there with the best, and beyond. They are not just technical solos in the athletic, ‘look how fast I can play’ sense, there is truly amazing harmonic content going in these leads. Any educated player will realize that the chord changes he is playing over are far more complex than anything you typically find in metal. Mix all that with absolutely world class tone and vibrato, and you really have an amazing piece of work. It does not get better than this.”

Watch THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s new music video for Goat of Departure HERE. The video was directed by Ben Mayer and filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit, MI last month. In typical TBDM fashion, it is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat.

Metal Blade Records Signs MONTE PITTMAN

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of MONTE PITTMAN, the guitarist known for his work with metal legends Prong and the illustrious pop-star Madonna. A release date for the new solo album will be announced shortly so be sure to stay tuned to MetalBlade.com and MONTE PITTMAN’s website or Facebook page for updates.

Metal Blade Records founder and CEO comments;

“We are so happy to welcome Monte Pittman to the Metal Blade Family. He is a tried and true metalhead and has recorded a crushing album! Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen produced a devastating metal record with Monte and we could not be happier that we are working together on this!”

Guitarist and mastermind of the band, MONTE PITTMAN adds;

“I’m beyond excited to be working with Brian Slagel and all of the wonderful team at Metal Blade.

I can’t think of anyone I can put my faith and trust in more with my new album and where my career is headed. Metal Blade’s track record has stood the test of time. Brian has been responsible for a majority of bands that have influenced me and gotten me to where I am now.

It’s been a dream come true making this album with Flemming Rasmussen. Flemming is a Master at recording a band playing together and capturing the sound in the room of everything musically working together. After we finished tracking, the first person I wanted to play it for was Brian Slagel. Here we go!”

Fans in California have a chance to catch MONTE PITTMAN live as the he brings his acoustic show to Hotel Café in Hollywood and two stops on the Vans Warped Tour 2013 including Mountain View and Ventura (performing on the Acoustic Basement Stage).

Upcoming solo acoustic shows:
06/21 Hollywood, CA Hotel Cafe (on @ 8pm)
06/22 Mountain View, CA Warped Tour – Acoustic Basement Stage
06/23 Ventura, CA Warped Tour – Acoustic Basement Stage

About Monte Pittman:
Born and raised in Longview, TX, Monte Pittman made the decision at 24 to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a professional musician, and unfortunately having to leave his family, friends, and band Myra Mains behind. Upon arrival in LA, he made ends meet by working at a local music store. Realizing he was better at teaching than selling, he left to start providing guitar lessons.

As fate would have it, his third student would end up being British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, who had just received a guitar from his then girlfriend, Madonna. Soon after, Monte was introduced to the iconic performer, and became her guitar teacher as well. A month later, Monte was invited to join Madonna on stage at the David Letterman Show to promote her album, Music.

Monte has since played guitar on all of Madonna’s live tours and albums, starting with the 2001 Drowned World Tour, and shares writing credits on some of her songs. Monte has also played guitar for the band Prong. He is credited with co-writing songs on Scorpio Rising and Power of the Damager to which he also added backing vocals and bass. He also played guitar on Prong’s live album 100% Live.

In November 2009, Monte released his debut acoustic solo album, The Deepest Dark. Almost a year after its release, a special bonus version of The Deepest Dark was released and immediately reached the No. 1 spot on the Best-Selling Acoustic Albums list at CD-Baby.com. It was also No. 9 in the Top 10 Best-Selling CDs for the Fall of 2010. In 2011, Monte launched a Kickstarter campaign for his second album, Pain, Love & Destiny. It raised a staggering $65,500, making him the top rock musician to raise the most money on the crowd-funding platform at that time. Monte met his initial goal of $5,000 in under 24 hours. It was released later that year and within its first week made it to No. 1 Rock Album, No. 1 Pop Album, and made it onto the Top 10 Albums chart on CD Baby. In addition, it cracked the iTunes Top 200.

Monte performed at the 2012 Super Bowl with Madonna and toured around the world on the MDNA Tour. He also performed at the 2012 Artists In Music Awards where he was given an award for Best Solo Artist in addition to being nominated in four other categories. Monte has also been honored with a Career Achievement Award from the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards. The Los Angeles Music Awards nominated him for Best Male Singer/Songwriter and Best Modern Rock Album for Pain, Love, & Destiny.

In November of last year, M.P.3: The Power Of Three, Pt. 1 was released. It’s a stripped down acoustic EP marking the beginning of Monte and Flemming Rasmussen’s working relationship.

In 2013, Pittman, along with band members Kane Ritchotte on drums and Max Whipple on bass, went to Copenhagen to record the upcoming album with producer Flemming Rasmussen. This marks Monte’s return to heavy music.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Streaming Track From New Album

The Black Dahlia Murder’s sixth full-length album, Everblack, will be released worldwide in June 2013. The album art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller and recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER announce Everblack; first track streaming now

Vocalist Trevor Strnad elaborates on the lyrical concepts:

“The opening track is the first actual song we’ve done about the Black Dahlia. This one is for the fans, they’ve been asking for this to happen for a long time. The story takes place at the Elizabeth Short’s rain drenched funeral, where her killer in attendance… just one of the many macabre tales woven into the fabric of Everblack. Subterranean flesh-farming vampires, vine rape, Jeffery Dahmer, amputation… it’s all here! With this sixth slab of sickness I tried my best to honor the band’s legacy and write lyrics that will keep the legions of horror fiends perspiring with fear.”

The debut single, Into the Everblack, is streaming now on metalblade.com/bdm. To request THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER on The Welding Room, send Death Threats/Complaints to TheWeldingRoom@gmail.com.

Also available at metalblade.com/bdm are a variety of limited edition pre-order bundles. Fans can grab Everblack on a triple gatefold double LP with purple/white marbled vinyl, along with “crime scene bundles.” An evidence pack, which includes toe tags, deceased band member photos, spent shotgun shells, and more can be viewed now. These bundles are extremely limited and expected to sell out quickly.

Everblack will be released on June 11 in North America and on June 7/10 in Europe. THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER will be touring in support of Everblack all summer long as part of the Van’s Warped Tour. Dates can be seen below, as well as on facebook.com/theblackdahliamurderofficial.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Confirmed For 2013 Van’s Warped Tour

(Detroit, Michigan) Melodic death metal outfit, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, will be hitting the road this coming summer as a part of the annual Van’s Warped Tour.

 

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments;

“We in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER look forward to seeing you and your friend’s fancy haircuts this summer at the Van’s Warped Tour. I think it’s safe to say that all of us in TBDM have attended this tour at various points and have fond memories of this great American punk rock freak show. This time, we shall be the freaks… the sore thumb poking at your eyeball. We are proud to be the fastest, craziest, and most evil band that has ever played Warped Tour… hundreds of bands will enter, one band will leave. Us. We will emerge from the rubble like the giant cockroach men we are. See ya this summer… let’s get warped!”

New acts are being announced every Friday so keep an eye on official Van’s Warped Tour site for further updates.

The 2013 Van’s Warped Tour will kick off on Saturday, June 15 in Auburn, WA at the White River Amphitheatre and wraps up on August 04 in Houston, TX at Reliant Center Parking Lot.
