Most of the Metal fans know the Better Noise Music record label for notable artists such as Papa Roach and Bad Wolves among many others but they are still learning about the cinemic side of the fence known as Better Noise Films. They’ve given us a few films already with one being that Motley Crue story called “The Dirt” which was based on the bands best-selling biography and now they are dipping more into the Horror side of the fence with a release called “The Retaliators”. Since I’m upping the Horror content game in our Pop Culture features I am pleased to share the films first trailer. Check it out down below along with some casting and artwork.
Oh no!!! Seems like legendary Crue drummer Tommy Lee has gotten injured and will sit out most of the set on the just started “Stadium Tour” with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Read on to the official announcement secured from the bands Facebook Page.
Update: Though the world is slowly returning to some kind of a normal sense, big events like the massive “The Stadium Tour” with Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts are not so easily modified. That said, a short time ago, Motley Crue updated their legions of fans via their Official Facebook Page and we have embedded this for your perusal.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told, announcements about massive endeavors like this one being pushed back another year do not surprise me at all. Let’s face it…though many of us have been vaccinated there are many who haven’t and refuse to. Many places are still requiring a mask to enter the premises even though its been viewed that if you are vaxxed you don’t have to wear a mask in public. It’s a slippery slope and I think many are fearing lawsuits and to be completely honest there is no way I am ready to be surrounded by thousands of people at a Rock concert just yet. I’d like to see this when its deemed safe to be able to do so and as I close this one up I wonder what you think of the news. Were you planning on doing this one or were you sitting it out based on the conditions? Chime in down below in the comments and I will see you next time. Keep safe out there and I will see you again soon.
