Good morning Radicals! Here’s the best way to kick off the day, with new music from Starset! Their new song “Manifest” will premiere at noon, so keep this link open:

With a new album on the way, Tool currently has all 10 spots in the positions of 1 through 10, on the Billboard’s Rock Digital Song Sales chart.

The new release will be nearly 85 minutes of music. It consists of seven songs and three interludes with an average of about 12 minutes per song, depending on which version of the album you listen to.

Drummer Danny Carey says he originally wanted the album to be one long song instead of 6. He explained: “When we get in that room, where it takes us… that’s where it goes. Four years ago, when we were looking at this, I wanted to try to do a record that was one giant song.”

According to Loudwire, “Chocolate Chip Trip” is one of the star instrumental tracks, standing out as one of Carey’s drumming masterpieces. He completed one of the most complicated parts – in only one take, while the rest of the band was taking a break.

Fear Inoculum will be released on August 30.


Ghost is known for creating special, limited-edition promotional items, such as an 8-track edition of Ceremony & Devotion, and for Prequelle, a seven-inch vinyl disc of the album’s first single “Rats.”

Well, on September 27, the Swedish rock band will release several more items tied to the Prequelle album and tour: The deluxe collector’s edition, Prequelle Exalted, will include a 60 page arena tour photo book, live photo prints, a limited edition transparent orange and black colored vinyl and several other items. Only 5,000 copies will be sold through their website.

Look for Ghost to kick off a fall/winter tour on September 13 in Bakersfield, California.


A few hundred lucky fans will have an opportunity to see A Day To Remember do a free concert at House of Vans in London. The venue holds only 800 people. The last-minute surprise announcement came through the band’s Twitter account.

The band is currently on tour and have a show this weekend in Belgium. I Prevail and Beartooth are set to hit the road with them beginning September 6, in Buffalo, New York and are not included on the August 21, London ticket.

Finally, we want to wish a Happy Birthday to Crobot singer Brandon Yeagley! Their new album “Motherbrain” is out next Friday!
