From LA – Shooter Jennings and Stephen King Exclusive!

With just two short weeks until Shooter Jennings releases his masterpiece, Black Ribbons, I wanted to highlight the album’s narrator, Will O’ The Wisp. The character, voiced by acclaimed novelist Stephen King, is a late-night talk-radio host who painting an apocalyptic picture of what America could become in the not-so-distant future. Please share this info with your readers in anticipation of the album’s release on March 2nd.

“Tonight I’ve chosen to play the one band the American Fascicrats don’t want me to play. Tonight I’m going off the air with the music of Hierophant. For those of you not familiar, you’ll get a taste of Hierophant’s music tonight – their message, their light.”
-Will O’ The Wisp

The Black Ribbons album represents the last hour of Will O’ The Wisp’s final broadcast before the airwaves are overtaken by “government-approved and regulated transmissions.” In retaliation for his muzzling, he speaks his mind like never before, punctuating his rants with selections from the discography of Hierophant. Throughout the album’s 14 songs, Will O’ The Wisp offers his loyal listeners—from whom he is about to be permanently cut off—the unvarnished truth.

At its core, Black Ribbons, is a concept album about truth—searching for it, locating it, wrestling with it and eventually coming to terms with it. From the opening track (and lead single) “Wake Up!,” a pummeling psychotropic stomp that sets the album’s tone, to the synth-injected paranoiac anthem “When The Radio Goes Dead,” this elliptical narrative takes the listener on a harrowing, life-affirming and altogether rapturous journey.

With Black Ribbons, Shooter Jennings has created something true to himself, to his art and his beliefs. Sonically, it draws from Jennings’ disparate influences—the Beatles’ White Album, Skinny Puppy and Ministry to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Oak Arkansas. At the same time, it forms an intensely personal song cycle, as this young artist probes his own roiling psyche and the tumult of modern-day existence.

NakedEric ROCK STAR EXCLUSIVE! LO-PRO IS BACK AND ONLY ON NAKEDERIC!

NAKEDERIC ROCKSTAR UPDATE!!!

LO-PRO EXCLUSIVE!

I don’t know how to say this in a way that fully delivers the massive news that broke yesterday at NakedEric.

Yes I do.  I just lied.  Sorry.

I’ll strip the usual (and incredibly sexy) NakedEric spice from the story and hit you with the skinny.  Also, I took too much Ritalin and can’t stop eating Starbusts so my hands seem to have ulterior motives.  If you don’t know what Ritalin is, then think of it like a display toilet at Sears.  It makes the place look more accommodating (a commode-ating, ha!)  but it is still the same bland, oversized shope selling crap we don’t need.  That made no sense.

LO-PRO MANAGEMENT HAS CONTACTED NAKEDERIC AND WILL BE ALLOWING EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO THE BAND AND THEIR NEW MUSIC

WE’RE GOING TO HAVE GIVEAWAYS, REVIEWS, CONCERT INFO, BAND MESSAGES, VIDEOS, AND MORE.

TOTAL COVERAGE OF AARON LEWIS AND HIS PRODIGIOUS BAND LO-PRO

Here’s a link to two ridiculous songs by Lo-Pro.  Now, you all know what to do…  Tell us what you want!  What should we ask?  What kind of giveaways?  What do you think of the band?  Do you like Staind?  Are you nervous?  Do I make you horny?

SEND US YOUR QUESTIONS AND IDEAS THEN STAY TUNED BECAUSE WITHIN EVERY DAY WE WILL BE REVEALING MORE EXCLUSIVE CONTENT FROM LO-PRO AND OTHER HUGE BANDS.
