Orlando is about to receive a gift from the “Metal Gods;” legendary Heavy Metal band Judas Priest will descend onto Hard Rock Live October 29th as part of their “Redeemer of Souls” tour. Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner took time from a recent Caribbean vacation to talk about the band’s (now) current tour, the release of their latest album and about being a member of one of the world’s most famous Metal bands.


One of the hottest hard rock bands around these days is the five-man band from Las Vegas, Five Finger Death Punch. FFDP, currently on tour with Volbeat, Hellyeah & Nothing More, will be performing at Orlando’s CFE Arena on October 14th. Recipients of Radio Contraband’s “Indie Artists of the Year” for the last three years, FFDP also has a streak of four consecutive singles reaching the number-one spot on the US Hard Rock Charts.


After 15 years together, Rise Against has become one of the most successful, and challenging punk rock bands. The band consists of Tim McIlrath (vocals/guitar), Joe Principe (bassist), Zach Blair (guitarist), and Brandon Barnes (drummer.) Rise Against will be beginning their world tour while promoting their recent release of their most personal album to date The Black Market that focuses on self-awareness. I spoke with Zach Blair about their album and touring.


Capital Cities gained popularity from their multi-platinum first single, “Safe and Sound” with over 100 million spotify streams. Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian are the frontmen behind the breakout alt-dance group, who started their journey by meeting each other on craigslist. After opening for Katy Perry on her tour this past summer, Capital Cities will now embark on a fall headline tour. I talked with Ryan Merchant about the start to their career, their hit single, and touring with Katy Perry.


When you think of the 1990's and hip hop, you can't help but think of Vanilla Ice. Best known for his #1 single Ice Ice Baby. Vanilla Ice is still relevant today, still performing, making music, renovating houses and hosting his own TV show on DIY Networks. Vanilla Ice sat down with us before one of his shows for an in-person interview.


There are several upcoming Country Artists that people should be keeping an eye on and Chase Rice is certainly one of them. Although he has been in the music scene for quite some time, he is now getting the recognition that he deserves. Chase took the time to talk to us about how he got to where he is and what is upcoming for Chase Rice fans.


Florida is a wonderful place for musicians and the members of Virgin Dirt would whole-heartedly agree. While still new to the Florida music scene, Virgin Dirt has not had a quiet entrance. This band has been on a roll since they began and are only growing larger and more popular with time. Audiences will have a great time listening to Tyler Plaster on bass, Gerald Baker on guitar, Mark Frame on drums and Eddie Jaime singing his heart out on vocals. These four guys were a pleasure to talk with and their passion for creating music coats every word as they speak.


Creative Loafing held their annual “Best of the Bay” awards show ceremony at the St. Petersburg Coliseum on September 17th.
