Hell yea, it’s Friday! One more day to get through before the weekend hits! Hope everyone’s ready for it! Here’s what’s up in music news this morning:

Slash has confirmed that a third album featuring his solo band, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, will arrive this fall. The yet-to-be-titled disc will follow up 2012′s Apocalyptic Love and 2014′s World On Fire. In addition to Slash, the group includes Myles Kennedy on vocals, Brent Fitz on drums, Todd Kerns on bass and newest member Frank Sidoris on guitar.

Slash said in a statement, “I’m excited about the new stuff we put together for this next record; it’s got some cool songs and it’s got a great live feel. I’ve been working with Myles, Brent and Todd for about eight years now. It’s been an amazing ride so far; as a band we continue to get better which is great . . . I feel we have hit a great, creative stride which I definitely think shows on this next record.”

As for GNR, Slash is still very much part of the current semi-classic lineup, saying, “Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110 percent performance and a huge blast.” He added about the ongoing reunion tour, which launched in April 2016, “It’s indescribable to explain these shows . . . It’s like being in a new band, except there’s a chemistry that is established from days of old, so it’s a natural thing that’s always been there.”

Rumors of a new Conspirators disc were started last December when Slash’s girlfriend Meegan Hodges told a fan on Instagram that the guitarist was in the studio.
Slash, Kennedy and the Conspirators will head out on a North American tour this fall.

Pearl Jam brought Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer onstage for an impromptu cover of Neil Young‘s “Rockin’ In The Free World” during a show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Wednesday night, March 21st. As the improvised supergroup tore through Young’s 1989 anthem, singer Eddie Vedder tossed tambourines into the crowd and doused himself from a gigantic bottle of wine. Throughout much of the track, Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron played a floor tom and Smith manned the kit, while Klinghoffer traded leads with Mike McCready and Stone Gossard.

“Rockin’ In The Free World” has been a staple of Pearl Jam shows for years, and the band played it with Young himself in a now-classic appearance at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards. Pearl Jam will wrap its South American tour this weekend with a set at Lollapalooza Brazil, where Red Hot Chili Peppers are also scheduled to perform.
Pearl Jam will play a handful of European dates before embarking on a short U.S. stadium tour this summer, with gigs in Seattle, Missoula, Montana, Chicago and Boston. Earlier this month, the band released a new protest song called “Can’t Deny Me.” The track marks the group’s first original song since the release of their 10th studio LP, Lightning Bolt, in 2013 and is confirmed to be from an upcoming new album.

Thirty Seconds To Mars has revealed that the band’s new album will be titled America and will arrive on April 6th. The band’s fifth studio effort is being preceded by a marketing campaign centered on a variety of themed lists appearing on billboards in Los Angeles, New York, London, Sydney, Toronto, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin and numerous other cities.

The lists coincide with six different album covers for the disc. Singer Jared Leto said on Twitter, “For me the lists are almost like a time capsule. Independently they may surprise, entertain or provoke, but as a group they give us a sense of the culture we are a part of and the times we are living in.”

America follows up 2013′s Love, Lust, Faith And Dreams and includes the single “Walk On Water,” which recently topped the Modern Rock radio airplay chart. The next single to arrive, “One Track Mind,” is a collaboration with A$AP Rocky, while the disc also features guest appearances from alterna-pop star Halsey and EDM artist Zedd.

Thirty Seconds To Mars recently announced a summer trek called “The Monolith Tour” that will kick off on June 6th in Toronto and wind down on July 22nd in Phoenix.
Support on the tour will come from Walk The MoonK.FlayMisterWivesJoywave and Welshly Arms.

Smashing Pumpkins founder and frontman William Corgan did not mince words about former bassist D’arcy Wretzky in a New York Times interview on Thursday, saying he has not seen her in 19 years and was horrified she shared their private correspondence about the upcoming Pumpkins reunion tour online. Corgan explained, “I think what she did demonstrates why she couldn’t be involved. I was vulnerable and shared things and trusted that there was a reason to give it a chance, despite plenty of empirical evidence that that was not a wise decision.”

Corgan added that the bridge between he and Wretzky — with whom he started rebuilding his friendship two years ago — is now burned “forever.” She is not taking part at all in the reunion, which also includes original guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin.

But the Times also spoke with Wretzky herself, who said that Corgan misled her about the reunion. She revealed, “He was stringing me along and using me to be able to say that it was, in fact, a reunion of all the members. Billy can be incredibly charming and funny and fun, but when it comes to money and giving credit where credit is due and any kind of work situation, it’s not pretty.”

Wretzky said there were disagreements about how the members would be paid, with Corgan making twice as much as the others. She added, “I really wanted to do this tour for the right reasons. If everybody was doing it for free, I would have done it for free.”
The current almost-all-original lineup of the Pumpkins have been recording on two EPs, with the first of the new music coming in May. The “Shiny And Oh So Bright” tour, which will reportedly focus on the band’s first five albums, kicks off on July 12th in Glendale, Arizona.

Kaaboo Del Mar, billed as an “adult escape” festival featuring music, comedy, art and food, has announced an eclectic lineup for 2018. The rock portion of the festival will include performances from Foo FightersAlice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Imagine Dragons, Better Than Ezra, Jimmy Eat World, Cake, Candlebox and Incubus.

A pop contingent will feature Katy Perry and Halsey, as well as ‘90s icons JewelMelissa Etheridge and TLC. New Wave staples Billy IdolBlondie and The English Beat are also on the bill, along with Robert PlantThe Wailers and R&B legends Earth, Wind & Fire.

The event is scheduled for September 14th through the 16th at the Del Mar racetrack north of San Diego and will be the fourth annual gathering since Kaaboo launched in 2015. Billing itself as “everything a typical music festival is not,” Kaaboo’s amenities and attractions include artisanal cuisine, craft libations and beers, spa services, contemporary visual art, a Vegas-style pool, cabanas, dance clubs, plenty of seating, and even luxury bathrooms in addition to plenty of music and comedy.

Over the last three years, the fest has featured acts like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers – one of Petty’s last performances before his untimely passing – P!nkRed Hot Chili PeppersIce Cube, Aerosmith, the Killers, and Snoop Dogg among many others. It’s expected to draw more than 100,000 people.

Finally, we’d like to wish a happy birthday to Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz! Happy Friday everyone!

It’s a snowy morning here in the northeast, but that can;t stop the rock!

Ozzy Osbourne has filed a lawsuit against AEG, claiming that the concert agency is “blackmailing” him. The Black Sabbath singer has alleged that AEG is using a practice called “block-booking” to force him to perform at the Staples Center in Los Angeles against his wishes on his upcoming “No More Tours 2″ farewell tour.

According to TMZ, Ozzy had tentatively agreed to perform at London’s O2 Arena on February 11th, 2019, but he claims that AEG added a provision stating that if Osbourne played an indoor arena within 25 miles of Los Angeles that was promoted by competitor Live Nation during the tour, he would have to play the AEG-owned Staples Center as well.

The complaint stated that this is effectively a violation of antitrust laws, explaining, “Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s wife and business manager, publicly complained about having to sign the Staples Center Commitment, but AEG would not relent.” Sharon shared a fiery letter last month in which she said, “Shame on AEG for bringing artists into a power struggle you’re having with your competitor, Live Nation.” She later called AEG’s actions “childish playground tactics.”

The lawsuit added that Ozzy was taking action “to prohibit AEG from enforcing the Staples Center Commitment, an unlawful tying arrangement that unfairly leverages AEG’s dominance in greater London to distort and deter competition in greater Los Angeles.” Ozzy wants a judge to invalidate the provision in his contract that forces him to perform at Staples.

Ozzy’s final world tour kicks off this spring with dates in Mexico, South America and Europe, coming to North America in August. It’s slated to last until 2020.

Linkin Park‘s charitable Music For Relief organization will become the official crisis relief program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Guitarist Brad Delson told Billboard, “My bandmates and I founded Music For Relief in the spirit of collaboration; recognizing that we could do more in partnership with others. Joining forces with EIF exemplifies the teamwork that will make both entities stronger.”

He continued, “The Entertainment Industry Foundation has the capability to activate the entertainment community around a cause, which is what we set out to achieve with Music For Relief.”

Entertainment Industry Foundation CEO Nicole Sexton said, “Music For Relief will allow EIF the capability to harness the power of the entertainment community to help make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by natural disasters around the globe.” Linkin Park started Music For Relief in 2004 after the Indian Ocean tsunami, and the charity has since raised over $11 million for disaster relief and for climate change education. Linkin Park has not officially announced whether the group intends to continuing recording and touring together, following vocalist Chester Bennington‘s suicide last July.

Guitarist Glenn Tipton rejoined his Judas Priest bandmates on stage Tuesday night (March 20th) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey to perform the concert’s three-song encore of “Metal Gods,” “Breaking The Law” and “Living After Midnight.” Tipton took part in a signing session with the band earlier in the day at Sony Square in New York City, fueling speculation that he would perform with the band.

Tipton, who has played on every Priest album since its 1974 debut Rocka Rolla, announced several weeks ago that he was retiring from the road due to his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease. Although Tipton played on the band’s new Firepower album, he is being replaced on tour by the LP’s producer, Andy Sneap. Tipton did not rule out occasional appearances with the band on the road and insisted he would continue to be a member of Judas Priest, saying, “It’s not the end for me — I’ll still be able to write and record and on good days even join the band on stage for a few songs.”

Firepower is Priest’s 18th studio album and is earning the band some of its best reviews in years, with the song “Lightning Strike” breaking into the Top 20 at rock radio. The North American leg of the Firepower tour will wrap on May 1st in San Antonio, Texas.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album Rock Or Bust nearly two years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of longtime singer Brian Johnson, drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams – fans have wondered whether sole founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.

It appears he’s going to stay the course: singer Angry Anderson of the veteran Australian act Rose Tattoo said in a new interview with the Rockpit that Angus is at work on new music and intends to have Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose – who took Johnson’s place on the road in 2016 — sing on the LP.

Anderson explained, “I said to (Angus), ‘What are you going to do?’ and he said ‘Mate, I’m writing a new album.’ I asked him who was in the band and he said ‘Axl.’ Brian’s not there, Phil’s not there, Cliff’s not there, sadly, Malcolm’s not there.”

hile some fans may not be happy to see AC/DC without any of those key members, Anderson pointed out, “Yes, it’s sad that the original lineup aren’t there anymore, but it’s the songs. People who have supported them all the way through their career, they want to hear the songs.”

Johnson was forced to leave the band mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss, while Rudd was dismissed following a drug arrest and Williams decided to retire at the end of the cycle. Malcolm Young was diagnosed with dementia several years ago and bowed out before the sessions for Rock Or Bust began. He died this past November.

Angus Young has not said publicly what he has planned for the future of AC/DC. Axl Rose is still touring with Guns N’ Roses but has indicated a willingness to work with AC/DC again. It is also unknown whether Angus will keep the other members of the last touring lineup — including guitarist Stevie Young and drummer Chris Slade – or revamp the roster again.

 

Marilyn Manson has announced that Courtney Love has been cast to play a nurse in his new music video for the song “Tattooed in Reverse.” Manson wrote on Twitter, “Who allowed Courtney Love to be my nurse? Oh s**t…I did.” Manson also recently shared two new photos with Love recently, writing, “Reunited and it feels so wrong. That’s why we F**k S**t up.”

“Tattooed In Reverse” is the third single from Manson’s latest album, Heaven Upside Down. Manson and Love have been on-again, off-again friends for years, with the two occasionally taking jabs at each other online or in the press. Manson told Esquire about their relationship, “We never really had a falling out. We’ve always been weird with each other, because she’s slept with pretty much every one of my friends, supposedly. Not me, though. She, one time, told me she was mad at me because I didn’t want to f**k her and I was smarter than her. I said, ‘Well, you kind of proved your own point right there on that one.’”

Both Love and Manson appeared on the final season of the smash FX biker series Sons Of Anarchy, although they did not have any scenes together. Manson and Rob Zombie will co-headline the “Twins Of Evil: The Second Coming Tour” this summer, starting July 11th in Detroit and wrapping up on August 29th in Irvine, California.

Finally, a very Happy Birthday to Limp Bizkit drummer John Otto!

Well, we’ve got another nor’easter coming out way here. Hope the rest of the country’s having more spring-like weather! Let’s warm our hearts with some music news, shall we?

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory told Detroit radio station WRIF that the title of the band’s new album, And Justice For None, was inspired by the group’s recent legal battle with former label Prospect Park. Bathory explained, “There was this back-and-forth forever, and finally when we settled, I think Ivan (Moody, vocals) was the one who said, ‘Well, I guess that’s justice for none.’ And we were, like, ‘Let’s call the album And Justice For None.’”

Bathory acknowledged that the band picked that title even though Metallica released an LP called . . . And Justice For All. He added, “We all know there’s (the) Metallica album . . . And (those) lyrics, actually, Metallica’s ‘. . . And Justice For All,’ make a lot of sense to me. The same crap 30 years later, right?”

And Justice For None was originally completed in December 2016 but its release was delayed by the legal issues. Asked if the band changed any of the LP during the past year, Bathory replied, “We ended up recording a couple of more songs that was part of the agreement with the label; we recorded three more songs for the album that was part the settlement.”

And Justice For None will arrive on May 18th. Bathory said about the music, “We have a sound, and we’re not gonna really go far away from that. We sometimes experiment, but we have a sound. And for us, it’s always about writing the song — the song is what matters the most to us.”

Five Finger Death Punch will hit a handful of festivals and play around a dozen dates with Shinedown this spring. The band will then kick off a co-headlining run with Breaking Benjamin on July 16th in Seattle.

Nine previously unreleased demos from late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots singer Chester Bennington were discovered by the fan site LPLive and briefly posted online Tuesday (March 20th), before being taken down again, to mark what would have been Bennington’s 42nd birthday.

LPLive posted a statement saying, “On Chester’s birthday, LPLive and LinkinParkBR are beyond delighted to provide a glimpse into his past as he was just beginning his solo project (what would later become Dead By Sunrise). In continuing the #MakeChesterProud movement, we felt that this release would provide a celebratory feeling for fans and friends of Chester’s.”

The tracks were quickly taken down a short time after they were posted, apparently at the request of Linkin Park and Bennington’s label, Warner Bros. Records. Work on the songs began in the summer of 2005, with Bennington continuing to write and develop them in 2006, 2008 and 2009. It is unclear when the demos were recorded. The only Dead By Sunrise album, Out Of Ashes, came out in October 2009.

New Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Jeff Gutt said in an interview with Detroit News that one of late STP singer Scott Weiland‘s signature stage props – a megaphone — will not find its way into Gutt’s act. Gutt explained that the megaphone was “sacred” with Weiland, adding, “There’s nothing preconceived, and I don’t go up there to do an impression of Scott. I try to feel the music as best I can, and if there’s little hints of Scott here or there, then I see that as a good thing.”

But Gutt admitted that a megaphone did play a role in his getting the job with STP, revealing that on the day he received a phone call that he got the gig, he ducked into a shared laundry room to take the call in private. As he was hearing the news, he glanced down at the floor and saw a megaphone sitting next to the washing machine. Gutt remarked, “I felt like that was Scott’s way of giving me a little nod.”

Gutt, a one-time X Factor contestant, said about landing the job, “I was incredibly proud and honored that they chose and trusted in me. I came in at the end of their search. It was a process of us becoming comfortable with each other and getting to know each other. It was just as much about relationships as what I can bring to the table. Things like that take time and are important.”

The now 41-year-old Gutt said that he was 16 years old when STP’s debut album, Core, came out. STP’s self-titled seventh studio effort and first with Gutt came out last Friday, March 16th. Gutt made his live debut with the band last November in Los Angeles. The band recently did its first round of dates in support of the new album and next plays on April 14th in Tucson, Arizona.

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has revealed that his highly anticipated solo album will be titled Black Labyrinth. The May 25th release was described as “diverse and progressive” and “a natural evolution” for the singer, who recorded most of its 13 tracks live to tape as opposed to digitally as Korn has done over the years.

Davis focused lyrics-wise on religion, consumerism and apathy throughout the LP, saying, “There’s a level of enlightenment I want to achieve . . . No matter how hard you try to fight bad things in your life, life will be what it is. It’s up to you to accept that, combat it, and move forward, or it’s up to you to be in denial. Then it becomes a thorn in your side until you finally deal with it.”

In addition to the first single, “What It Is,” songs on the disc include “Underneath My Skin,” “Final Days,” “Everyone,” “Happiness,” “Your God,” “Walk On By” and six others.
Davis started work on Black Labyrinth as far back as 2007, writing and recording it in between albums and tours with Korn, and keeping the project alive through a change in record labels.

The singer will kick off a solo North American tour on April 6th in Portland, Oregon, ending on May 18th in Boston. Korn drummer Ray Luzier will be part of the backing band.

Finally, we’d like to wish a happy birthday to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley!

Good morning Radicals! Here’s what’s up in music news today:

Photo credit: Anna Shinoda

To mark what would have been late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington‘s 42nd birthday today, his widow Talinda Bennington and the 320 Changes Direction organization is hoping to spread the word for mental health advocacy as a tribute to the fallen vocalist, who took his own life last July.

Talinda has partnered with the Campaign to Change Direction for her initiative, which is aimed at helping people with emotional struggles rather than isolating them, and encouraging conversations about mental health rather than avoiding them.

Talinda is asking for fans to lend a “hand” in a social media campaign that is designed to get people discussing the five signs of emotional suffering and to get people practicing the healthy habits of emotional well-being. Her request read in part, “I ask that you post a picture of yourself holding up your hand, which symbolizes you know the Five Signs. Write ‘I AM THE CHANGE’ on your hand and please use #320ChangesDirection.”

She added, “Because we are the CHANGE in our mental health culture. Every one of us is changing it by sharing your thoughts, offering support, and by simply being aware that we have our mental health to care for.” Talinda continued, “The passing of my husband cannot be in vain. His passing was a catalyst for opening up dialogue with respect to emotional and mental health. Throughout his life, he saved countless lives with his music and philanthropy. And through his death, he continues to save lives by spotlighting the urgent need for a change in our mental health culture.”

Godsmack and Shinedown have fleshed out the rest of their co-headlining summer North American tour, which gets underway on July 22nd in Clarkston, Michigan and will now hit more than 30 cities before wrapping up after six weeks on September 2nd in Wantagh, New York. The two bands announced the first 16 dates earlier this month. Like A Storm will open the first half of the tour, while Red Sun Rising will warm up the crowds for the second half.

Tickets are available to the general public starting this Friday, March 23rd at LiveNation.com. These dates come as both groups are set to release new albums: Shinedown’s Attention Attention arrives on May 4th, while Godsmack will unleash When Legends Rise on April 27th.

Shinedown’s Brent Smith said in a statement, “It’s all about impact, and making a statement. We are creating a show for the fans that is powerful, passionate, and sonically inspiring. The audience has given us a platform to be ourselves, and create something spectacular.’”

Godsmack frontman Sully Erna added, “We love the guys in Shinedown and we all go way back. There is a very strong mutual respect between our camps and we feel that this tour is going to be a must see!” You can see all the stops for this killer run on the Road Rage page.

Blink-182 is headed to the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas for a 16-date residency dubbed “Kings of the Weekend.” The run will begin May 26th and run on select weekends through November 17th. Bassist Mark Hoppus said in a statement, “When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said ‘Absolutely!’ Now, we just have to cast our showgirls, create our set list — a true throwback of Vegas classics with SinatraLiberace. Maybe we can even marry someone onstage . . . the possibilities in Vegas are endless.”

Blink is just the latest in a long line of contemporary pop and rock performers who have gone the Vegas route, including Britney Spears, the Backstreet BoysElton JohnRod StewartJohn Fogerty and many others, with Lady Gaga beginning a 74-show stand later this year.

Blink-182 has kept a low profile since wrapping up its 2017 tour in support of 2016′s California, the band’s first album without founding guitarist Tom DeLonge.
With Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba replacing DeLonge, the album hit Number One on the Billboard 200 and the group proved to be one of last year’s most popular touring attractions. A new album is reportedly in the works.

The Vegas shows will all take place at the Palms’ Pearl Concert Theater. A ticket pre-sale begins Tuesday (March 20th) at 10:00 am PST. A public on-sale follows on Friday (March 23rd). The shows will run as follows:

  • May 26-27
  • June 8-9, 15-16, 23-24
  • October 26-27
  • November 2-3, 9-10, 16-17

Queens Of The Stone Age have released a video for the song “Head Like A Haunted House” from the band’s current album Villains. The clip is described as a “ghastly animated carnival ride through your worst fever-induced nightmares. Accompanied by disembodied hands, UFOs, smoldering hellscapes and grooving skeletons, (frontman) Joshua Homme leads the way as he and his pack of mischief-makers sail through the nighttime sky on what else but flying coffins.”

“Head Like A Haunted House” is the latest single to emerge from Villains, following “The Way You Used To Do.”

Queens Of The Stone Age have been mostly spending the early part of the year outside the U.S., most recently in South America with Foo Fighters. However, they’ll be back for more U.S. dates in March, April, and May before spending the summer in Europe.
The North American run kicks off with a two-night stand on March 21st and 22nd at the Observatory North Park in San Diego.

Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor is joining the roster of performers who will appear on Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho‘s Rock ’n’ Wrestling Rager at Sea. Taylor will play a solo acoustic set aboard the cruise, which will also feature Fozzy, Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell‘s new band the Bastard Sons and more, along with some of Jericho’s fellow pro wrestling stars like Mick Foley and Raven.

Taylor said in a statement, “”I’m gonna be just as geekin’ as you are watching all the music, all the wrestling. Growing up, I was a huge fan, so this is gonna be pretty bad ass.”

Taylor and Stone Sour recently announced a spring headlining tour that will also include appearances at several festivals in the U.S. It kicks off on April 28th at Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville fest. If all goes according to plan, the month-long run will mark the return of guitarist Josh Rand, who last performed with the group in January before he entered treatment for unspecified issues.

Stone Sour is touring in support of its sixth studio effort, Hydrograd, which came out at the end of June and features the chart-topping rock radio hit “Song #3.”

Have a great day everyone!
