Phinehas’ New Album “The Last Word Is Yours To Speak” Has Dropped Show Un-Cancelled


Phinehas' highly anticipated new full length album called "The Last Word Is Yours To Speak" is now available for purchase.

In other Phinehas news, their August 31st show in Spartanburg has been un-cancelled.  Yes, you read that right.  UN-cancelled.  They worked with the promoter to make the show still happen and make it free.  South Carolina metalheads are all the happier.  Congrats on the invention of a new word, too, eh?


Close Your Eyes Announces New Head Crooner; New Album; Tour Dates

The silence of Close Your Eyes has ended.  They have announced that Sam Robinson is their new lead vocalist and he's already laid down some sweet vocals.  Guitarist Brett Callaway says Robinson's voice is a very strong edition to the Close Your Eyes lineup.  Callaway says Robinson is a great vocalist who shares the band's vision and purpose.  Their next album will be Line In The Sand, releasing in October.  Ahead of the album release, they are kicking off a headlining European tour in Cologne, Germany on September 4th. 

Behold! “Behold! The City” Is Breaking Up

The opening line to their current Blast hit "Dead Future" is "There comes a time in every man's life when he decides to kill his dreams or keep them alive."  Well, it sure looks like the band has decided to kill the dream of keeping this band alive, as the band has announced that they have only 6 tour dates left ever, this August. Those tour dates are in the provinces Quebec and Ontario in their homeland, Canada.  They will be missed, but you can still hear "Dead Future" blasting around the clock on The Blast and other, harder songs of theirs on our weekend "Blastmetal" show.

Help Replenish The Blast Stash Of Cash For New Projects

The Blast has spent a heap of money lately…several thousand dollars on new apps and on another sound card/processor/encoders unit (this one for our coming, second radio station). We are still building the new apps, by the way, and those will be out soon. If you can, please help replenish The Blast Stash of Cash so we can stay debt free AND have money available for other upcoming projects. No amount is too big or too small. You can give here, as a Paypal guest, as a Paypal member, or through the postal mail:

The Blast Android App Has Been Updated

Android Blasters: our Android app has been updated. The high bit rate stream has been upgraded to a 192 kbps mp3 stream for transparent CD quality audio in wi-fi environments; and 80k and 48k Ogg Vorbis streams. The 64k mp3 stream has been retained. Let us know what you think. One way to do that is in the 2013 Blast Mobile Apps survey.
