On Monday, pop-punk veterans New Found Glory premiered a new music video for “Greatest of All Time,” a song from the band’s upcoming studio album Forever + Ever x Infinity, which will be released on May 29 via Hopeless Records. https://www.instagram.com/p/B8ZbZ6jg9k_/ The band formed in 1997 and has been as hard-working as any of the alt/punk scene since its formation, continuing to tour heavily throughout the year. They’ve outlasted many of their peers — and the whole Vans Warped Tour, of which they were frequent participants — and it’s great to see them back in action yet again. Their live…

On Monday, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit announced a new album, Reunions. Scheduled for release on May 15, it’ll be the sixth album from the ensemble and first since 2017’s The Nashville Sound. Along with that news came the premiere of a song called “Be Afraid,” which finds Isbell — a notably entertaining social media follow, both for his sense of humor and societally-relevant screeds — speaking directly to artists and creators with lines like “We don’t take requests, we won’t shut up and sing. Tell the truth enough you’ll find it rhymes with everything.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPek7jto9l0 The album was…

Pearl Jam has been on a mission since premiering “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” the funky, Talking Heads-ish new song from the band’s anticipated new album, Gigaton. When the song was first released, it came with a visual accompaniment that accentuated the song’s offbeat vibes. Here is that first video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJwuP5wPCLQ A second video was then released for the song a week later. Here’s that second one — Mach II, as it’s called: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okly4ZVkQFU And then today, Feb. 7, another week later, a third music video has premiered for the track. Watch this new one, featuring stylized performance clips of Eddie…

This week came with some pretty huge news for the Rolling Stones — and we’re not just talking about their No Filter tour, which announced a new slate of North American stadium gigs for the summer. No, this one’s about guitarist Keith Richards, who said in an interview that he’s finally given up smoking! As Richards said in a chat with Q104.3 New York’s Jim Kerr (as reported by the NME), the man they call “Keef” claims he hasn’t had a cigarette since last October, adding that he and Mick Jagger realized something on their band’s amazing 2019 tour: “I…

There is a lot going on in Paradise Lost, the epic poem first published by English poet John Milton in 1667. Every line — and there are more than 10,000 of them — is meaningful, and it’s a crucial component of most collegiate English coursework. Emo/rockers The Used, obviously motivated by the epic poem and its legacy, premiered a new song on Friday. Titled “Paradise Lost a poem by John Milton,” the song was released on Friday by the Utah-based band as a preview of its new album, Heartwork. The corresponding music for the video is a lot to process,…

Today, Stone Temple Pilots released a new album, Perdida — but this one’s different from any other the long-running alt-rock/grunge band has released. It’s the band’s first acoustic record, STP’s second effort with vocalist Jeff Gutt, who took over singing duties in 2017, replacing Scott Weiland (who passed away in 2015). The album was previewed in recent weeks with the tender “Fare Thee Well,” which opens the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMn-YfBv-ws Perdida shows a different side of Stone Temple Pilots — Gutt, bassist Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz — that hasn’t truly been explored much in the band’s…

On Friday, Green Day returned with a new album, the aggressively titled Father of All Motherfuckers. The record is a whole lot of fun — click here to read our in-depth review — and that energy carries over into the new music video for “Meet Me on the Roof.” The video stars Gaten Matarazzo of Stranger Things fame as a high school kid pining for the affections of a specific girl. He also does motorcycle stunts … or tries to, at least, until a flashy motorcycle stunt man portrayed by Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong takes over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18EmOXEsmlw Stream…

April 10 will be an important day for Linkin Park fans. It’s the day that Grey Daze, the Arizona-based band late vocalist Chester Bennington was in prior to joining LP and launching to superstardom, releases its new album, Amends. Featuring newly recorded music and remastered vocals from Bennington, the project is going to be something of an exercise in catharsis for both Bennington’s former band mates — Sean Dowdall (drums), Mace Beyers (bass) and Cristin Davis (guitar) — and Linkin Park fans still reeling from Bennington’s sudden passing in 2017. On Thursday, Grey Daze premiered a music video for “Sickness,”…
