Fan dies at Chicago Open Air

A 29-year-old man has died after falling from a railing at this year’s Chicago Open Air festival.

The Chicago Sun-Times report that Robert Smucz fell two stories from the mezzanine level at this city’s Toyota Park at the weekend.

He was rushed to the Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead due to "multiple injuries from an accidental fall."

TeamRock have asked festival organisers for comment.

This year’s three-day event featured artists including Rammstein, Disturbed, Korn, Gojira, Alter Bridge, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson.


The Devil Wears Prada release Daughter video

The Devil Wears Prada have released a video for their track Daughter.

The song is expected to feature on their as-yet-untitled sixth album, which is expected later this year.

Earlier this month, the band split with drummer Daniel Williams, while last year, they parted ways with guitarist Chris Rubey, who left to spend more time with his family.

The Devil Wears Prada are currently on tour across the US. They released their Space EP in August last year.

Don Broco issue promo for new track Everybody

Don Broco have released a video for their new track Everybody.

It comes ahead of their UK tour later this month, which will see the band play their albums Priorities and Automatic in full on consecutive nights.

Don Broco frontman Rob Damiani says of the track: “It sounds like Don Broco, but at the same time I don’t think it sounds like anything we’ve ever done before.

“It’s got elements from Automatic in, it’s got elements from Priorities in and it’s also got a lot of new ideas. It’s just an out and out banger.”
