The Damned Things Ironiclast Cover Revealed

Ironiclast

This art is meant to represent a example of an “ironiclast”. The $1 bill is one of the most iconoclastic images we, as a band, could think of. Every time we kept musing on other widely recognized bits of imagery, we always came back to this bank note for some reason. It felt relevant, regardless of the meaning one decides to attach.

It can that represent everything from the American dream and total independence, to capitalism and a loss in sight of what’s really important in this world.  It could be representative of not just the current American economy, but also of the world economy and it’s piss poor state of being. This could also conjure up the old “money is the root of all evil” adage. Maybe you just hate George Washington and you feel like this is really sticking it to him…FINALLY!  Or maybe you love George Washington and have been dying to give him a cool makeover. This is all left up to you.

Many meanings can be attached to this imagery. It’s all in how you choose to interpret it.

Anthrax And Public Enemy To Tour???

MC Lars posted this on his Twitter:

“Scott Ian from Anthrax told me at a Brooklyn party that he was working on booking a reunion tour with Public Enemy soon.#bringthenoise2010

If this is true it will be fantastic, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the original tour. Plus hopefully this time, Anthrax will have John Bush, who regularly played Bring The Noise with Anthrax.

I’m putting it down as a rumor for now, but I think this would be a great way to bridge the increasing gap between Hip Hop and Metal (again).

Also, am I the only one who thinks MC Lars should open for them?
