Angel’s Rock Report–Chevelle, Flea, Megadeth [AUDIO]
Chevelle will release their sixth album on December 6th. The first single from the yet-to-be-titled project is “Face to the Floor,” and it will be out on October 10th. The trio plan to debut some of the new songs on their tour with Bush, which hits San Diego tonight.
Pink Floyd started reissuing their catalog this week with yesterday’s release of all 14 of their studio albums, which have been digitally re-mastered, as well as two additional versions of their most successful album, The Dark Side of the Moon.
Jimmy Fallon is celebrating the reissue campaign all this week on NBC’s Late Night, and last night he was joined by Roger Waters, who performed “In the Flesh” from The Wall with Foo Fighters. Tonight, MGMT performs “Lucifer Sam” off The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. See the Foo/Waters performance here
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has revealed that he’s been working on a solo album. He tells Interview magazine that he began laying down “a bunch of instrumental stuff” during the last Chili Peppers break, and that he’s cut some vocals for it with Patti Smith and with some of the kids from his Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
Flea says he hasn’t released his new album yet because he doesn’t “want to confuse the issue with the [new] Chili Peppers record,” but that he could put it out next year. He admits to having started solo albums with him singing “a few times” in the past, but it “just never really works.”
Megadeth plan to re-start their Gigantour festival for the first time in four years. The lineup for the jaunt includes Motörhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil. No specific dates have been announced yet, but the tour is expected to run from late January through early March.
