More details and a list of participating stores are available here. More will be added later today.
Recently, Of Mice & Men cancelled their European tour due to frontman Austin Carlile's ongoing battle with Marfan Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that affects the body's connective tissue, causing weakness in the heart, joints and muscles and results in chronic pain. Today, October 21, Carlile has undergone the first of several surgeries that he will be enduring in order to get well.
"First of a few surgeries today!!!" Carlile posted to Twitter. "Will be doing something called blood patching, to fix the three major tears currently in my spine… Base of neck/back of head, mid back between my 11 & 12 vertebrae due to a bludgeoned disc, and lower back just above tailbone! Here we go!"
Leave your well wishes for Austin below in the comments!
Megadeth and Unibroue have teamed up for a new Megadeth signature brew, À Tout Le Monde. The beer will officially launch today, October 21, throughout the U.S. and Quebec, Canada. In conjunction with the launch and Dave Mustaine's recent birthday, the frontman is inviting fans to join him in an extra special celebration. The party will take place at World of Beer - UCF Area (3402 Technological Ave) in Orlando, FL. The event will also be livestreamed via Facebook. To R.S.V.P. to the event and to watch the livestream, visit this page.
With a 4.5% ABV, À Tout Le Monde ale is defined as "a flavorful Belgian style dry hopped golden saison with hoppy and spicy notes." The flavor medley is similar to that of Unibroue's flagship beer, La Fin du Monde.
The ale was cooked up by Megadeth vocalist Dave Mustaine and brewmaster Jerry Vietz, who became close friends during the time Megadeth spent in Quebec while they were on tour. The beer serves as a symbol of the friendship that the two cultivated together.
"At Unibroue, we appreciate flavor — and we know MEGADETH is anything but boring," remarked Vietz. "To MEGADETH's delight and that of their fans and connoisseurs, we're offering an uncompromising beer with rich hoppy aromas, created according to Dave's personal tastes."
Dave Mustaine added: "Our shared passion for excellence produced a one-of-a-kind saison beer. I'm thrilled to present this new beer to my fans, and everyone who loves good beers with character."
Will you be attending the launch?
Whores have released "Metal Illness as a Mating Ritual," the newest single from forthcoming record, 'Gold,' which is set for an October 28 release via Entertainment One (eOne).
"'Mental Illness As Mating Ritual' is a super personal song," explained frontman and guitarist Christian Lembach. "It's sort of about four different things: parallel universes, health care, circuses and laundry. Everyone experiences suffering at some point, and some people hurt so much and for so long that a healthy and fulfilling life can feel like it's make-believe."

'Tis the season for horror movie binges! Then again, when you're a metalhead, horror movies are rolling year round. We've compiled a list of five metal horror movie soundtracks to rock out to for those of us who aren't fans of Huey Lewis and the News.
The 'Dracula 2000' movie might not have gotten the highest ratings from critics, but the soundtrack was the redeeming quality of the film. With songs from Pantera, Monster Magnet, Disturbed, System of a Down, and a ton of other metal powerhouses, the collection shreds from cover to cover. In fact, Slayer's hit song, "Bloodline," made its debut in the movie.
'House of 1000 Corpses'
While all of Rob Zombie's soundtracks can certainly comprise this entire list, 'House of 1000 Corpses' was the O.G. Zombie-directed film. Although the soundtrack also features jams from the 20s, 60s and 70s, there are so many Rob Zombie songs that it might as well be an LP from the band.
'Queen of the Damned'
This Anne Rice adaptation features a soundtrack that's produced entirely by Korn's Jonathon Davis and Richard Gibbs. The collection is a gold-mine of metal tracks from The Deftones, Papa Roach, Marilyn Manson and others!
Not only did Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider write and direct this movie, but he also stars in the film alongside Robert Englund, who is best known for his iconic role as Freddy Krugar. As if that isn't metal enough, the soundtrack features songs from Anthrax, Megadeth, Pantera and more! While there's an obligatory track from Twisted Sister in the collection, it's not the obvious "Captain Howdy." Instead, Crisis' delivers a sludgy cover of the classic horror song. Since that version isn't available on the interwebs, check out the original song with footage from the movie.
This cult classic's soundtrack offers a solid sampling of grunge, goth rock, punk and metal. Sandwiched between tracks from Stone Temple Pilots and The Cure are crushing songs from Pantera and Nine Inch Nails. Even Rollins Band makes an appearance in the collection!
