This fall will be a busy one for GWAR as the Scumdogs of the Universe will not only release a new studio album in October, but embark on a lengthy tour beginning in late-September which will stretch into December. Their new record is titled The Blood of Gods, and it drops Oct. 20 via Metal Blade Records. In support, our Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural devastation across North America.
Ghost singer Tobias Forge, the band’s corpse-painted leader who goes by the stage name Papa Emeritus, chatted with BBC Radio 1 for an extended interview – which can be heard in its entirety below – on the Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter. He discussed a variety of topics, including how being influenced by some of his favorite bands, especially as an adult, was welcoming and helped him out early on.
British garage rock duo Royal Blood brought an electrifying performance of their single “Lights Out” to The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, just over a week after killing it with a set at Lollapalooza. The pair, made up of singer and bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher, plowed through the track, one of the highlights from their latest album, How Did We Get So Dark?, which came out back in June.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
