Over the weekend, thousands of rock fans gathered in Brazil for Rock in Rio, and among the bands playing were Weezer and headliners the Foo Fighters — who really seem like they never turn down  a festival gig (which is pretty awesome, we’re not gonna lie). During Weezer’s set, front man Rivers Cuomo led the band through a cover of Nirvana’s ’90s classic “Lithium,” introducing it by saying, “We’re gonna cover a song from Dave Grohl’s old band to tide you over until the main course in a few minutes.” Weezer then busted through a pretty solid rendition of the…

A planned Mott the Hoople ’74 tour, which was to see Ian Hunter and his band tour the United States for two weeks in the coming months, has been scrapped as Hunter deals with the ramifications of a diagnosis of “severe” tinnitus. The news was announced Monday morning on Hunter’s social media channels, with a message that reads: Mott the Hoople ’74 are disappointed to have to announce the cancellation of their Fall 2019 U.S. tour. Ian Hunter has recently developed a severe case of tinnitus and has been advised by his doctors to discontinue performing until this condition subsides.…

When Blink-182 continued on with Matt Skiba in 2015 despite the absence of vocalist/guitarist Tom DeLonge, many fans weren’t sure what to expect. DeLonge had always been one of the trio’s signature sounds, both vocally (his higher-pitched tone a stark contrast to bassist Mark Hoppus, as the pair split vocal duties), and it’s just tough to replicate that with somebody new. To his credit, Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) was more than willing to step in and sing DeLonge’s parts live, and fully set on the band’s new era, he, Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker headed into the studio. The…

Everybody has aliens on the brain right now. First, the research put out by former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge was confirmed by the Navy to be “real” UFOs, and now the Foo Fighters have added to the fray. Today, Sept. 20, is the day hordes of internet sleuths and extraterrestially-inclined message board participants vowed to descent upon Area 51 in an effort to uncover the truth about alien existence. Back in 2005, Dave Grohl and the band played a live set at Walker Air Force Base near Area 51, and the recordings were unearthed just in time for this momentous…

When Liam Gallagher shouts “Brace yourself, world, it’s about to blow your mind” on “Shockwave,” the opening track to his new solo album Why Me? Why Not., which was released on Friday, you know he means it. Produced by Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt in Los Angeles and London, this record has a bit more bite and snarl than Gallagher’s previous record, 2017’s As You Were. The ex-Oasis vocalist has always been known for his explosive personality, slags thrown in all directions without a care — though they’re usually thrown at his brother and ex band mate, Noel. Just look…

It’s been quite a long time since Keane, the massively successful indie/rock band from East Sussex, released a new record — 2012, in fact. But today, the band has brought an end to that seven-year drought with Cause and Effect, Keane’s fifth full-length to date and first bit of new music since their hiatus, which spanned 2014 until 2018. The band previewed it with an epic single titled “The Way I Feel” back in early June: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VM5_w4hNlbs Keane’s music has always been predicated on emotion; Their most beloved songs, including “Somewhere Only We Know,” from 2004’s Hopes and Fears, and…

As it turns out, we should have all been listening to Blink-182’s claims of alien existence — stemming in large part from guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge — all along. Back in 1999, the pop/punk band broke out with Enema of the State, an album that recently turned 20 years old. It featured a song, sung by DeLonge, titled “Aliens Exist,” told from the point of view of a kid convinced that, well, aliens exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiBbsL_haeI In late 2017, leaked footage in a New York Times report alleging a secret research initiative, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Project made headlines — for…

In 2000, amid all the angst of the “nu-metal” movement led by Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Korn and the like, a band called Cold hit it big with a record titled 13 Ways to Bleed Onstage. The band, fronted by Scooter Ward, hit gold status with the album on the strength of singles such as “No One,” “Just Got Wicked” and “End of the World,” landed on various movie soundtracks, toured as part of big-ticket metal festivals and were suddenly a viable act on the mainstream rock scene. The band released a few additional albums, such as 2003’s Year…

Music can heal. That’s the story and the line rolled out by innumerable songwriters and artists over the years. The medium allows for the expression of thoughts, sentiments and emotions that might otherwise be held inside. That’s very much the case for Korn, whose “nu-metal” beginnings were born out of intense feelings of alienation, animosity, abuse, and violence. The band just released its 13th studio album, The Nothing, on Sept. 13 — and the weight of this album is a bit overbearing, in terms of the crushing emotional impact it leaves on the listener due to vocalist Jonathan Davis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=As8x9xqdCtc…

Some songs just sound even better when you add some brass — and on Monday, the Interrupters unleashed their take on Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” one of the most popular songs from the breakout indie/pop singer, who currently dominates pretty much everything in the pop realm. Recorded live in a studio setting, the Interrupters’ cover transforms the moody original track into a bouncy ska rhythm. Watch it below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmRy-JW5aps For comparison’s sake, here’s Eilish’s original, as featured on her 2019 album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-TbQnONe_w This comes at a busy time for the Interrupters,…
