Somewhere between Philadelphia and New York on the New Jersey Turnpike you will find the home of Dive, Philadelphia’s newest alternative rock outfit. Dive is no stranger to the Southern Jersey/Philadelphia music scene and has played just about every venue in the area since forming in 2004. In 2007 Dive self-released The Truth About Us which was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin). On May 11th Picture Perfect was released by Phase One/MadRock which features the single “Last Call Romance.”

Since releasing their debut Dive has had a steady stream of success. In 2009 Dive went to legendary 4th St. Recording Studios in Santa Monica, CA to record Picture Perfect with help from the infamous producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, No Doubt, Jack’s Mannequin). Dive’s sound is driven alternative Rock ‘n Roll that hits you with a fury of tight rhythms and distorted guitars from beginning to end that is similar to Three Days Grace, Hoobastank, & Fuel.

Dive consists of Jonny Sitar (Vocals), Evan Canova and Jeff Moczydlowski (Guitars), Mike Morgan (Bass), and Zhach Kelsch (Drums). Dive has such a loyal fan base that Philadelphia’s 93.3 WMMR booked them to play with Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, Three Days Grace, Fuel, and Skillet for their annual WMMR*B*Q. WMMR has supported the band since releasing The Truth About Us in 2007, and even premiered “Last Call Romance” in April. Dive recently won their idol Bon Jovi’s Wanted: A SuperBAND Tonight! Competition on Ourstage and opened up for Bon Jovi at the highly anticipated show at the new Meadowland Stadium. If Dive can continue to impress their loyal fans, and continue to gain more fans Bon Jovi better watch out!

It’s been over a week since we wrote about Slash. Not because there hasn’t been Slash news. In fact, The Perv is a little sick of Slash. That’s why we didn’t talk about him at Sam Ash this week. So McFarlane Toys has made an action figure of Slash that looks like him in Guitar Hero 3. It comes out in February and has 15 movable parts. This makes me long for the days of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.. sigh.

In other Slash news, he talked to Rolling Stone about finding a replacement for Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver. Slash mentions how the initial concept for the band was to be heavy but they ended up going on a different turn (umm because it sold more records, duh) and that they wouldn’t make the same mistake this time. Slash also said that his infamous Les Paul that he used on several Guns N Roses videos/tours was stolen in 1998 and Gibson made him a brand new one, exact to the specs of his previous one.

And finally, Slash will be performing at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Tribute to Les Paul on November 15th with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi and others. Les Paul will be there too and his 93 year old ass schooled Slash.

Old Fries is a new weekly feature that we’ll be running here at The Audio Perv where we’ll list news with a note or two that we were too lazy/disinterested to cover during the week. There will be some cool finds here so make sure to stop by.

Former Atlantic Records head/Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg wrote a book that isn’t about politics finally but about music. I’ll have my own review once my library gets it.

The new Metallica sounds better in a video game than it does on the CD. “Shocking”

Listen to the new James Bond theme by Jack White and Alicia Keys. WTF? The new bond movie Quantum of Solace (crappy name) comes out in November.

Led Zeppelin wont get back together because they hate all the BS and paperwork. All they have to do is put on a show and sign their names, lazy bastards.

Bon Jovi is playing Live Earth India. It finally worked. We’re deporting Jon Bon Jovi.

Weezer is going back into the studio in November because the current album tanked big time.

Former Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and DJ AM were injured in a plane crash. Damn sucks, hope for a speedy recovery.

50 Cent vs Kanye West Round 2. This is the most hip hop we’ll ever talk about. Unless it’s about T.I. who’s awesome.
