Grunge Supergroup “Temple Of The Dog” Rises From The Ashes & Hits The Road

Folks who grew up in the 90’s are well versed in grunge rock and bands like Nirvana, Mother Love Bone, Meat Puppets, Mudhoney and others are most likely still part of of your favorite “playlist” only rather than having their music on a cassette, you have it loaded on your cell phone.

Now, 26 years after they formed, one of the best grunge bands is getting back together and hitting the road for what will most likely be five glorious shows.  “Temple Of The Dog” was a supergroup in the grunge arena as it was comprised of members of two of the biggest grunge acts of the time, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

For fans of the group this is a HUGE announcement as the band never officially toured. Lead singer, Chris Cornell said in an official press release: “We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do… play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago.

Here are the dates that will absolutely sell out:

November 4 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania @ Tower Theater
November 7 — New York, New York @ Madison Square Garden
November 11 — San Francisco, California @ Bill Graham Civic Center
November 14 — Los Angeles, California @ The Forum
November 20 — Seattle, Washington @ Paramount Theater

As an added bonus, to commemorate the upcoming 25th anniversary of their album release, they will be reissuing a new version with demos and outtakes in various formats which can be preordered here.

Image Comics Introduces A Gritty New Comic Book Series: “Glitterbomb”

Image Comics is getting some pretty great feedback on their upcoming series, “Glitterbomb.”

Fan-favorite Jim Zub (WAYWARD, Thunderbolts) and debut artist Djibril Morisette-Phan will launch an all-new series that tears into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB this September.

Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. But the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture she’s drowning in isn’t the only problem—her frustrations are a powerful lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to strike.

“Hollywood is a place of extremes—wealth and influence propped up by fragile egos and desperation,” said Zub. “It’s fertile ground for telling a story of intense drama and blood-soaked vengeance.”

“GLITTERBOMB is one of my first steps in the world of comics, and I feel very fortunate,” said Morisette-Phan. “It has been a great vehicle for me to start some much-needed reflection about fame culture and the relationship I want to have with it. I’d love GLITTERBOMB to kick-start a conversation we could all be part of.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 12.38.42 PM(Cover by Steve Cummings & Djibril Morisette-Phan)

First announced at Image Expo, GLITTERBOMB is already raking in accolades: “Sharply written and drawn, with deft insight into the trappings of celebrity culture, GLITTERBOMB just might be the ultimate Hollywood horror story,” said Karen Berger, founder of DC’s Vertigo imprint.

Glitterbomb” #1 hits stores everywhere Wednesday, September7th, 2016.
