Ice Nine Kills, Destroy The Runner and Dave Grohl on Drunk History? Today's been a good day. Check out the news you might have missed below.
Ice Nine Kills announced they're re-releasing their 2010 album Safe Is Just A Shadow, which will be available on Jan. 6. To celebrate, the band will also be playing some shows at intimate venues. Chasing Safety will offer support.
Vocalist Spencer Charnas says about the re-release:
“With the evolution of our skills as musicians, and the original producer, Steve Sopchak, having established himself at the top of his craft, we felt this was a perfect time to re-record the album and give it that extra attention that it always deserved. We've also repackaged the album with the impressive Toby Fraser produced artwork that was originally supposed to accompany the release.”

Producer, engineer and mixer Joey Sturgis, who has worked with the likes of the Devil Wears Prada, Miss May I and Asking Alexandria, and his brand Joey Sturgis Tones released the Tominator plugin, intended to treat cymbal bleed commonly found in close-mic drum recordings. Tominator aims to streamline an engineer's drum processing as Joey Strugis Tones is a developer of audio processing tools for non-technical music creators.
● Eliminates cymbal bleed with internal moving filter
● Internal automated filter for effectively removing cymbal bleed
● Speed control for changing how fast filter works on your signal
● Cutoff parameter sets where the filter will stop after the transient
● Enables you to have more versatility when processing your drums
