Vans Warped Tour UK first promo pic Thrash Hits

Yesterday the Vans Warped Tour made its first return to London since 1999. We didn’t go. We do know some people who did go, and their reactions on Twitter ranged from “Oh my God! Onesies everywhere!” to “Lasted just an hour at Warped”. We know that (some) of us here at Thrash Hits have a reputation as being surly No Fun Club-types, but by gosh, did we not see this as a challenge to make a listenable Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.

Lostprophets – one of the UK’s premier rock bands – were a bit miffed at not winning a Kerrang! Award last week and so have charged their fans with the task of buying their merch to help soothe their egos.

The problem is that said merch is emblazoned with a quickly thought out logo that is mighty similar to the Fucked Up logo. Obviously the Welsh emo legends are actually just helping out their Canadian comrades and a sizable portion of the profits will see their way over to them. Right? No? WHAT?? OK.

You can try and deny it, but we know the truth. The question is, will you be singing along to the lead singles from Weapons in a year’s time as well, and still trying to deny it? [Read more →]

November 16th, 2008

trent reznor nine inch nails thrash hits

Nine Inch Nails drummer, Josh Freese is due to leave the band at the end of 2008 and Trent Reznor has posted details of his replacement, Lostprophets‘ Ilan Rubin, on the band’s official website:

With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. We recently invited him out to rehearse with us and he blew US away – the perfect guy to pick up the sticks after Josh leaves us at the end of the year.
