Green Day have signed on to headline this year's Voodoo Experience in New Orleans, which takes places October 26th through the 28th. The trio last headlined the festival in 2004.

This is Green Day's only U.S. date announced so far, although they have Japanese and European shows booked for August and September. They'll likely play some more U.S. dates around the September release of Uno! and the November release of Dos!

Rise Against and The Offspring will headline the seventh annual Riot Fest in Chicago. Probably not something you and I could ever make it to, but glad to see two awesome bands working together.

Saving Abel will return July 17th with their third album, Bringing Down the Giant. The title track is the first single, and it will be available at iTunes early next month. Saving Abel will kick off their summer tour on May 27th in Loves Park, Illinois.

Black Sabbath have yet to announce who will play drums when they do select dates this year, but founding drummer Bill Ward says it definitely won't be him.


The Black Keys will make an appearance on the Comedy Central show Workaholics this summer. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will play a couple of "dirtbags" with "oddly long ponytails" on the episode. The duo became friends with star Adam Devine last year. Carney tells MTV, "We're super-big fans of the show. We kind of just guilt-tripped them to let us on the show, basically." The new season of Workaholics debuts on May 29th.
