The Ghost Inside’s tour bus involved in fatal crash

Sad news to report this morning. California hardcore act The Ghost Inside‘s tour bus was involved in a head-on collision with a semi-tractor trailer in El Paso, Texas late last week.

Brooks Wackerman talks about joining Avenged Sevenfold

Just two weeks after leaving Bad Religion and exactly a week after joining Avenged Sevenfold, drummer Brooks Wackerman talked about Metal Hammer magazine about what led to him becoming a member of the latter band. He explains:

“The first thing I did was go and tell my wife, and she gave me a kiss and we hugged. It was quite a poignant moment. And she said, ‘Go get ‘em, tiger!’ [Laughs] Then I called my father and told him, who’s a music educator but wasn’t familiar with the band. So I showed him and few of the videos and he’s just my biggest supporter. I think just telling my family of what I was about to do was an exciting element.”

Avenged Sevenfold last released Hail to the King in 2013 via Warner Bros. Records, and have reportedly been working on a new album. As for Bad Religion, they have not yet announced a replacement for Wackerman, but they are still planning to tour South America in March and record a new album.

Avenged Sevenfold does not currently have any tour dates lined up, so it’s unclear when Brooks will make his debut with the band. Stay posted for more info.
