    Deftones at ACL Live

      Staying power is a rare commodity found in bands today, but its something that Sacramento-based alt-metal band, the Deftones, have unequivocally proven they still possess.   The band is still reeling from having replaced bassist Chi Cheng in 2009 after an auto accident, and went on hiatus while lead singer, Chino Moreno, pursued a witch-house influenced side project called, Crosses.   On tour for their seventh studio album, Koi No Yokan, the Deftones have consistently been one of the most unique […]

    Keane at ACL Live

      Eight years into their career – despite feuds, rehab stints, and hiatuses for various reasons – Keane has proven that they’re still on top. By performing on an ACL Live Showcase, they have certifiably reached one of music’s highest echelons of recognition. Strangeland may be a misnomer for the direction Keane has taken on their latest album.
