Kanga, r.roo Announce Joint Australian Tour

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA—Industrial pop artist Kanga and Ukranian electronic musician r.roo have announced a surprise Summer Australian Tour. The unending popularity of Kanga within the industrial scene will only help bolster the output of the tour, and seeing r.roo perform outside of their home country is a rarity. The tour is set to start in the summer and while the dates have yet to be announced, both parties announced that their tour will end at the Australian Zoo in Beerwah, Queensland.

When asked what prompted the decision to tour in Australia, Kanga explained, "I don't know, it just sounds right for some reason. I can't really explain it. But we're very excited."

Stay tuned to Riveting News for future information on the tour.

Sean Payne Spills Beer on, Causes Cyanotic Fan to Short Circuit

CHICAGO, IL—Normally, playing live shows are a good way for a band to gain new fans, but Cyanotic recently almost lost one. Witnesses say that frontman Sean Payne was giving an energetic performance when he took a break between songs to drink his beer. Someone in the crowd yelled, "Drink up!" to which Payne responded by screaming into the microphone, "It's angry robot fuel!" and pumped his fist in the air. Unfortunately, that fist was wrapped around his open beer which splashed onto a long time fan in the front row.

Said one witness, "The big metal dude started making these mechanical grinding and scraping sounds. At first I just thought it was just the intro to the next song, but then a bunch of sparks shot out and shit. It was fuckin' rad. I mean, I feel bad for dude, but it was fuckin' rad."

Payne, visibly shaken, sat on the stage rocking back and forth while band mates Kevin Barron and Jordan Davis stayed by the malfunctioning unit's side, waiting for mechanics to arrive. Upon arrival, the mechanics sprayed brake cleaner on the affected areas and applied a moderate amount of grease. The unit was then taken to a nearby machine shop, where it's expected to make a full recovery. When asked for the unit's model number, a spokesperson for the shop declined to comment citing privacy concerns.

JP Anderson, interim lead counsel of the Glitch Mode legal team has stated, "...any vulnerability to fermented beverages on the part of artificial persons is solely the responsibility of the manufacturer; we cannot be held liable for such oversights."

Al Jourgensen Removes Facial Piercings, Floats Away

Los Angeles International Airport, CA—While going through tight security at LAX, Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen was asked by TSA agents to remove all his facial piercings. Not wanting to miss his flight and upcoming show, he obliged. Upon their removal, Jourgensen seemed a bit wobbly, but onlookers just assumed he was using again.

"As soon as he dropped the piercings in the bin, he just started floating. It was so weird," said witness Roger Hendricks, begrudgingly on his way to New York for his son's gay wedding. "He looked worried, but he didn't really start freaking out until he broke through the skylight. I'm just glad they grounded my flight."

All incoming flights have been redirected to nearby airports, while the Air Force has been called in to attempt a rescue mission. The upcoming Ministry tour–set to kick off in Denver–will be postponed unless Jourgensen is somehow brought down before the jet stream carries him past Colorado.

Zardonic to Fight Zub-Zero in Mortal Kombat

OUTWORLD—Once again, Shao Kahn's infamous fighting tournament is in full swing, having attracted many Earthrealm warriors. Thus far, Zardonic has been crushing his opponents with his impeccable timing and strong beatings. His electrically charged blasts of metal and signature fatality, the Flying Metal Bass Drop, have been a cause for concern among the other entrants. In his next match, he will be up against Sub-Zero, the former Lin Kuei assassin. Though Sub-Zero's Cryomancy lineage allows him to freeze his opponents, we here at Riveting News are hopeful that Zardonic's beats per minute are fast enough to outmaneuver the icy blasts. Their first round is scheduled for next Tuesday at 4:00 PM.

Study: 90% of All Chains on Pants Found to Serve No Real Purpose

CAMBRIDGE, MA—After a 2 year study, researchers at MIT have determined that the majority of chains commonly seen on pants at the average goth club do not have any practical applications outside of aesthetics. About 8% of the time, one to three chains were found to be securing a wallet of some kind. Additionally, a mere 2% were found to inexplicably exist in place of a belt. Their effectiveness in actually holding the pants up remains questionable.

Leaked X-Rays Reveal 3Teeth Has Had Two Root Canals

LOS ANGELES, CA—A dental assistant who prefers to remain anonymous has provided Riveting News with evidence that suggests 3Teeth may be misrepresenting their overall condition to their fans. This is a shocking revelation, as one would not expect such a bad ass band to have teeth weak enough to need such a procedure.

Goth Kid Shunned From Lunch Table For Not Dying Hair Over Summer Break

BROOKSVILLE, PA—Hunched over a tray of lukewarm goulash and canned corn, Josh "Ravenblood" Hanson recounts his traumatic first day back at Brooksville Township High School after summer break.

"I spent the summer working at my dad's furniture store 'cause Hot Topic said they had no openings, which I know is bullshit, but whatever. My dad made me cut my hair 'cause I refused to stop wearing eyeliner, but I let it grow out though 'cause I'm my own person, ya know? I was working a lot to save up money for art school next year, and I just never got around to [dying] it [black again]."

When Ravenblood showed up for his first day of his senior year, everything seemed normal at first. He found his locker and all of his morning classes with ease. Things were going well, that is, until his lunch period.

"I got my tray and found where my friends were sitting. We all sit way in the back because everyone's so lame. Plus it's by the door so we can sneak out to smoke. They were all looking at me funny as I walked up, but I thought maybe they were just surprised I was still alive. I write a lot of poetry about suicide, ya know. But then I got to the table and everyone stopped looking at me and then spread out so there wasn't room."

One of the other goth students eventually spoke up and informed Ravenblood that he needed to "stop being a conformist and dye your hair black like the rest of us" if he wanted to sit with them. For the past week, Ravenblood has been eating alone near the drama students, because his mom can't take him to CVS for hair dye until this Sunday.
