...and it's hosted by yours truly!

Winter can be a drag in Minnesota, but one event coming to Rochester in January is sure to heat things up! Local metalheads The 9th Planet Out are gearing up for an album release - WITH A BIG ASS PARTY.

We don't have specific details on the album just yet... but, it's metal... so honestly who's complaining? You're going to have a good time.

On a personal note, I'm stoked to be seeing these guys again, and other locals (Local Sports) - and some other friends that I made this past summer at Northern Invasion, Sleep Signals!

They're right - I'm hosting it too. See you at Pure Rock Studios!

In the meantime, prepare yourself for these amazing bands by taking a look at some awesome moments with these crews.
