US Hardcore Band Fires Singer For Secretly Dosing Bandmate With Oestrogen, New Linkin Park Music + MORE

Here’s the latest in Hard N Heavy Headlines with Emmy Mack of RedHook! This episode is nothing short of sensational, featuring a story so bizarre it blurs the lines between reality and fiction. Imagine a hardcore band, Llorona, thrust into the spotlight not for their music, but for an internal scandal that's as shocking as it is unheard of. The lead singer has been ousted after admitting to secretly dosing a bandmate with estrogen, aiming to diminish his masculinity in a twisted plot to steal his fiancée. The revelation, coming to light through a drunken confession and a series of texts, has left the band, and the world, reeling. But the episode isn't all about band drama. We pay tribute to the legendary Chester Bennington of Linkin Park with the release of "Friendly Fire," a previously unheard song featuring his vocals, recorded during the "One More Light" album sessions in 2017. This gem will be part of an upcoming greatest hits album, a must-listen for fans and newcomers alike. And in a story that's sparking endless speculation, Ronnie Radke, the controversial frontman of Falling in Reverse, has vanished from the website X, formerly known as Twitter. With no explanation available, questions are swirling. Did Radke delete his account, or has he been banned for violating community guidelines?

Listen as he takes you back to his early days of orchestrating promo gigs for the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers on their seminal album, "Blood Sugar Sex Magik." Michael reminisces about his youthful excitement and the challenges of dealing with larger-than-life personalities like Flea and Anthony Kiedis.

Stories and Anecdotes Fans of Australian band Regurgitator will be riveted by Michael's experiences dealing with their enigmatic frontman, Quan, whose unconventional approaches to the industry have shocked him time and time again.

In this exclusive episode, you'll hear firsthand from Chris Cheney and Scott Owen of The Living End as they join Matty O and Chris Holland on Triple M Homegrown to reminisce about the album that launched their legendary career. "We did it, we said what we were going to do," remarks frontman Chris Cheney, reflecting on the early days when boundless energy and ambitious dreams fueled their music. He vividly describes how the songs from the debut album transport him back to his early 20s, a time of youthful exuberance. Explore the genesis of The Living End as Chris and Scott share their mutual love for 50's rock, particularly 'The Stray Cats.' Discover the story of how Scott bought a double bass to capture that distinctive rockabilly sound. Immerse yourself in Melbourne's vibrant live music scene, where the band honed their skills over seven years. Frontman Chris Cheney takes you back to the band's first proper show at The Richmond Club Hotel in September 1991, emphasizing the solid foundation they built before recording the debut album at Sing Sing Studios with producer Lindsay Gravina. "Chris and I would be out on weeknights, putting flyers in car windscreens, and sticking them up on poles at busy intersections. We were hustle, hustle, hustle, hustle," recalls Scott, offering valuable advice for aspiring artists. Their relentless determination is a key theme in their trajectory to success. Delve into the unexpected choice of 'Prisoner of Society' as a single and its profound impact. Learn how life transformed after the album's release, with constant touring, relentless rehearsals, and a whirlwind of press commitments. "The greatest thing is when people say 'this record got me through high school', 'got me through difficult times'," says Chris Cheney, underscoring the album's enduring significance in fans' lives. As they celebrate the 25th anniversary, discover the details of the special edition reissue of the album and a not-to-be-missed one-off show in Melbourne. The episode also includes a nostalgic trip down 'Memory Lane,' where The Living End shares memorable gig stories, and a playful round of 'Write, Party, Dinner,' featuring The Beatles, Oasis, and The Eagles.
