Green Day‘s recording pace has certainly slowed over the years — it took them four years to complete ‘American Idiot’ and five to finish the follow-up, ’21st Century Breakdown,’ which was released three years ago — but they’re about to start making up for lost time with a whopping three albums of new music, scheduled to be released between September 2012 and January 2013.
A couple of days ago, we told you rumor had it that the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup would feature Red Hot Chili Peppers and Black Sabbath — and now we can confirm that the rumors were right on the money. This year’s list of acts has been unveiled, and it’s a doozy.
Now that you can officially stream the full-length version of ‘Live to Rise,’ Soundgarden‘s song on the ‘Avengers’ soundtrack — and first new music in 15 years — you’re probably wondering how it fits into the band’s next album, due sometime this year.
Willie Nelson has always been known as a gifted interpreter of other people’s songs, but lately, he seems to be taking his fondness for surprising cover choices up a notch; recently he made headlines with his version of Coldplay‘s ‘The Scientist,’ now comes word that Willie has covered Pearl Jam‘s ‘Just Breathe’ for his upcoming album ‘Heroes.’
Lollapalooza’s luster has faded a bit since its Buzz Bin-raiding early ’90s heyday as the premiere rock festival in all the land, but it’s still going strong. In fact, they traveled to Chile last weekend, drawing more than 50,000 fans to a lineup that included Bjork, TV on the Radio, Band of Horses, and the headlining Foo Fighters.
After taking a couple months to recharge their batteries after their successful fall tour in support of their latest album, the boys in Chickenfoot have lined up a new string of dates that will see them rocking cities across the United States throughout May and June.
Korn have never exactly been the kind of band that tries to please critics — or, for that matter, anyone else but themselves — so when their tenth studio album, ‘The Path of Totality,’ was greeted with wildly mixed reactions last December, it was pretty much par for the course, albeit with one crucial difference: the new record, which finds the band experimenting with dubstep and electronic textures to a greater degree, was seen by some as a betrayal of their metal roots. As you might expect, the members of Korn see things differently.
He’s a prolific musician, a member of one of the most successful rock bands of all time, a published author, and an entrepreneur — and now, thanks to his role in an upcoming indie film, Nikki Sixx can add “actor” to his long list of accomplishments too.
For nearly 40 years now, AC/DC have remained a proud bastion of good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll regardless of changing trends — so it only stands to reason that in 2012, long after the pinball industry’s glorious heyday, the legendary rockers are teaming up with Stern Pinball to create their own game.
Interested in getting your colon checked out by a doctor, but reluctant to pony up for the co-pay? Never fear, Ozzy‘s here. The Black Sabbath frontman and his wife Sharon are joining forces with CBS and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for this year’s CBS Cares Colonoscopy Sweepstakes, which will treat one winner to a three-day stay in New York City, complete with potentially lifesaving medical procedure.
