With 19 days standing between your ears and the first album from Green Day‘s forthcoming ’¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tre!’ trilogy, the band has debuted another track from the disc. The tune, titled ‘Let Yourself Go,’ is the third to be released from ‘¡Uno!,’ following the singles ‘Oh Love’ and ‘Kill the DJ.’
The Foo Fighters treated about 1,000 lucky fans attending a Rock the Vote concert at the Fillmore in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday (Sept. 5) to what Billboard reports is believed to be the band’s longest concert ever — a three-and-a-half hour, 35-song, career-spanning set. ”Tonight we play as long as we want and as much as we want,” frontman Dave Grohl told the intimate crowd — and apparently, they wanted lots of both.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have spent the better part of 2012 rocking arenas and stadiums as they continue to tour behind last year’s ‘I’m With You’ album, but they’ll close out the year in a much more intimate setting. As MTV.com reports, the band has lined up a New Year’s Eve gig at the Chelsea Ballroom at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Dave Grohl told the massive crowd watching his Foo Fighters perform at the Reading festival on Sunday night (Aug. 26) in Reading, England that the concert would be the band’s last show for a long time — directly contradicting the Foo Fighters’ itinerary, which has four more U.S. festival appearances still scheduled for 2012.
– Green Day will revisit ‘Dookie’ at this weekend’s Reading Festival by performing the classic 1994 punk platter in its entirety at the annual British gathering. The trio wasn’t even scheduled to appear at Reading before making the announcement.
Who said pigs can’t fly? It certainly wasn’t Green Day, as the Californian punk trio has teamed up with video game developer Rovio to create a new musical episode for the ubiquitous ‘Angry Birds Friends’ mobile game franchise. The ‘Angry Birds: Green Day Edition’ includes 10 never-before-seen themed levels and new “bad pig” characters inspired by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and his bandmates Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool.
Green Day are gearing up to hit the road in support of their forthcoming three-album platter ’¡Uno!’, ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tre!’ — and if bassist Mike Dirnt is to believed, the calendar could be well into the aughts before they step off.
Green Day have issued a brand-new official band photo (via Twitter) ahead of their forthcoming three-album blitz known as ’¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!,’ and ‘¡Tre!’ trilogy — and it’s a pretty sweet shot. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys mug for the cameras with their typical goofy faces in the picture, which we assume is a punk-rock band version of a high school yearbook shot.
Earlier this year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced plans to unleash a whole wealth of new music the old-fashioned way: on vinyl. In fact, a total of nine 7-inch vinyl singles featuring 18 previously unreleased outtakes recorded while the band was making its ‘By the Way’ album are due in total, and the first release — with ‘Strange Man’ as the A-side and ‘Long Progression’ the B-side — drops this Friday (Aug. 10).
Pearl Jam should be finishing up work on a new album by the end of the year, if comments Matt Cameron made during a recent interview with Rhythm magazine are to be taken at face value. The drummer, who these days also sits behind the drum kit for Soundgarden, spoke of a busy rest of the year that involves plans with both — recording an album with one band, and touring behind a new album with the other.
– An altercation at a Tenacious D concert in Las Vegas on Saturday reportedly resulted in a stabbed fan, a large pool of blood and one person rushed to the hospital, where he was expected to make a full recovery. Another man was arrested for the incident, which caused the D gig to be cut short.
When the Red Hot Chili Peppers hit the stage of Moscow’s Luzniky stadium on Sunday, singer Anthony Kiedis made sure to show his support for embattled Russian all-girl punk band Pussy Riot by wearing a T-shirt with their name on it. Three members of the group currently are being detained following a February incident during which members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Maria Alekhina were arrested for protesting President Vladimir Putin.
