Garbage are back with their first new album in nearly a decade, and the band is very happy to reconnect with its fans — but that doesn’t mean singer Shirley Manson is going to stand for violence at shows, as one concertgoer found out after getting into an altercation with a fellow attendee on Friday, May 25.
If you caught the ‘Saturday Night Live‘ season finale last weekend, you know it ended with a high school graduation sketch that doubled as a thinly veiled sendoff/full cast dance party in honor of Kristen Wiig, who’s leaving the cast after seven years. The fun continued in an epic after party featuring musical guests the Foo Fighters, and thanks to footage uploaded by folks who were lucky enough to be there, now you can see some of what went on.
It’s Tax Day, which means you might not be in a very good mood right now. But cheer up, because even if you’re writing the IRS a check this year, chances are you don’t owe anywhere near as much as former Pantera / Down bassist Rex ‘Rocker’ Brown.
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.
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.’
The audience at last night’s (Feb. 9) Albuquerque, N.M., stop on the In Flames and Trivium tour missed out on seeing the full experience, due to a bomb threat that forced In Flames to cut their set short before completing their final song of the show.
By now, pretty much everybody knows that Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson moonlights as an airplane pilot when he isn’t fronting the band, but he’s never been known for his sea voyages — until recently, when a British submarine crew was surprised to learn that Dickinson had joined them for a three-day trip.
New Year’s resolutions: Most people don’t live up to them, but everyone makes ‘em — even your favorite hard rockers. How do we know? Thanks to the good people at Noisecreep, who asked a long list of rock’s heaviest hitters to share their plans for 2012, including Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, Skillet vocalist John Cooper and Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack.
Chevelle‘s fans were obviously anticipating the band’s new album ‘Hats Off to the Bull,’ which scored a high debut on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this month. And radio has been eagerly supportive too, sending the lead single ‘Face to the Floor’ straight to No. 1 on the Active Rock and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks tallies.
