Linkin Park: The Hunting Party Tour

by Connie Shearar

Kicking off their tour in support of the release of their sixth studio album.  Linkin Park kicks off their The Hunting Party Tour this January 15th in Orlando, Florida and conclude in Edmonton, Canada.   This was done as a follow up to their upcoming US headliner with AFI and Thirty Seconds to Mars, announcing that the band will be in the UK and Europe this November for the Hunting Party Tour.  Support is also coming from Rise Records’ outfit, Of Mice & Men.  Get all your Linkin Park tickets at alliancetickets.com.

Linkin Park has grown into one of America’s largest and heaviest rock bands.  With this new album they are kicking their Linkin Park Rise Against Toursound back up to the heavy their fans love about them.  The Hunting Party album is their hardest album they have released so far.  The mix of punk, thrash, and hard rock is very experimental and brave from the band that had started moving over into electronic territory on their last two albums.  This is not the only thing different on this new album.  Guitarist Brad Delson, who has not used his axe in recent years very much.  He not only delivers great crushing riffs, and on nearly every track he lays down an amazing guitar solo.  This is also the band’s first record that will feature cameos by outside musicians, Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, and Helmet all collaborated together and it is also the first album of theirs that is completely self-produced.  The end result of all of these experiments is an album that is aggressive and progressive.  While still being able to maintain the style Linkin Park is so well known and loved for.

The tour is set to hit several cities that haven’t seen Linkin Park in several years and Linkin Park thinks these towns are where rock was born and now overlooked.  Austin Carlile, Of Mice and Men recently had this to say about Linkin Park.  “We are really excited to be joining Linkin Park on The Hunting Party Tour. I performed the song “Faint” with them recently at The Hollywood Bowl and it was incredible.  Can’t wait to bring that experience to all our dedicated fans across America, The opportunity to tour with a band that inspired me to pursue music is mind blowing”.   You and your friends are not going to want to miss this amazing collaboration of musical artists and the genius they create when they come together on this tour.

Playing together since 1995 when Mike Kroeger borrowed enough money to record their first demo.  While working at Starbucks before forming Nickelback, Mike came up with the name for the group because of the change he gave customers back; he would frequently say, “Here’s your nickel back”.  Well Mike and the rest of the group sure know how to make each and every show VENTI….

No Fixed Addresses is named as such because the members of the group cut it in locales from Maui to Vancouver, Bassist Mike kroeger, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair worked without producer Joey Moi for the first time since 2001’s album Silver Side Up.  Instead Chris Baseford, known for his work with Rob Zombie.  No Fixed Addresses has a distinctive sound rooted in Nickleback style with swaggering riffs, a huge bass tone that sounds like they are just going to jump right off the instrument.  This album encourages listeners to spread their wings and pursue their dreams.

Week 13 NFL Review

by Josh Moore

After a few duds on Thanksgiving Day, fans were treated to quite a few exciting matchups in Week 13.

Perhaps the most thrilling as promised was the New England – Green Bay game which pitted two future hall of fame quarterbacks against each other at Lambeau Field. Besides the obvious signal callers, watching Darrelle Revis and Jordy Nelson battle it out was a thing of beauty. The game ended with the Packers on top 26-21.

The Atlanta Falcons took on the Cardinals and instead of their usual late game slide, actually hung on to win by a score of 29-18. Atlanta wideout Julio Jones torched stud Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson in one-on-one coverage for a total of 189 yards. With Drew Stanton under center, the Cardinals are not looking so much like a Super Bowl contender as people had previously pegged them.

Cincinnati took on the Tampa Bay Bucs in what ended in a 14-13 final in favor of the Bengals. Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton had the flu and played like it. He had a decent second half considering, and was able to connect with A.J Green for a touchdown in the third quarter that stood as the game winner.

The New Orleans Saints dusted themselves off from a three-game skid at the Super Dome and were able to beat the Steelers 35-32. Brees threw for five touchdowns in the victory and are now tied with the Falcons atop the weak NFC South division at 5-7.

Buffalo handed it to the Browns by a score of 26-10 led by their strong defense. The Bills created turnovers, sacked Hoyer a few times and added another six hits on the quarterback. Hoyer was eventually replaced by Johnny Manziel but to no avail.

Andrew Luck was masterful yet again and carved up the Washington secondary, to lead the Colts to a 49-27 victory over the Redskins. He is having another monster year and is on pace for nearly 5,500 yards and 45 touchdowns.

Jacksonville embarrassed the New York Giants by eeking out a 25-24 victory over the once mighty New York team. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin’s job is potentially on the line as New York has now missed the playoffs in five of their last six seasons.

Minnesota blocked and returned two punts for touchdowns on Sunday, the first team since 1990 to do so in the same game. They defeated the Carolina Panthers 31-13 in what was a battle of pretty meager teams, otherwise.

The St. Louis Rams shut out the hapless Oakland Raiders by a ridiculous score of 52-0. Fans who bought Rams tickets that day were treated to an old fashioned tail whooping.

AFC rivals Kansas City and Denver faced off at Arrowhead Stadium in what proved to be a decent game but not as great as some predicted. Denver dominated on both sides of the ball for most of the game and the result was a 29-16 victory and the top spot in the division for the Broncos.

Houston Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a career day against the Tennessee Titans throwing six touchdowns with zero interceptions. JJ Watt also had a stellar outing and caught an offensive touchdown at the tight end position. Too bad neither of these teams will most likely make the postseason as they are both behind the Colts in the AFC South.

Monday Night Football was a clash of AFC East rivals Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. It actually proved to be a decent game with Miami coming from behind in the fourth quarter to beat the struggling Jets. Of course they did.

The playoff picture is starting to take shape in the NFL and the coming weeks should provide some great matchups down the stretch. Fans might want to start setting some cash aside to purchase post season NFL tickets so they don’t miss out on all the action.

Recap of Denver Broncos vs St Louis Rams in Week 11

by Josh Moore

In perhaps the most surprising game on the Week 11 docket, the St. Louis Rams led by quarterback journeyman Shaun Hill, defeated the Denver Broncos in convincing fashion. With a final score of 22-7, the Rams move to a 4-6 record while the Broncos fall to 7-3.

The Rams had already quietly beaten the past NFC champs Seahawks and 49ers, and blown a big lead at home against the Cowboys. Still, no one gave St. Louis a shot at this game and the way Denver played, they didn’t prepare for a tough matchup either.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was 34 for 54 for 389 yards with two interceptions and was held to one touchdown pass, a 42-yard strike to Emmanuel Sanders. The Rams defense proved to be too much for Manning and company on Sunday and they held the Broncos several times on fourth down deep in Ram territory, preventing a Manning comeback.

The loss also included some critical injuries for the Broncos moving forward. Tight end Julius Thomas was sidelined in the first quarter with an ankle injury and will miss playing time. Stellar wideout Emmanuel Sanders is undergoing concussion protocol after being drilled by Rodney McLeod on a deep sideline throw and running back Montee Ball aggravated a groin injury that had kept him off the field for the five previous games.

This no-name St. Louis team is exciting and people should want to buy Rams tickets to head out and see how the rest of the season pans out. The NFC West is up for grabs and why not the Rams? As far as Denver is concerned, they are now looking at home field advantage for the playoffs in the rearview mirror and need to prepare to play on the road if the Super Bowl is in the cards for them.
