Good morning, all! It’s another great day because, LOOK!
Foo Fighters debuted another new song live while on tour over in Europe. Yes! Today’s song is “Dirty Water” from the forthcoming Concrete and Gold album.
At this rate it won’t be long before Foo Fighters are playing their entire new album live from front to back before it even comes out. The Dave Grohl-led act debuted ”Dirty Water” during a Jul 3rd performance at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, with video from the show quickly surfacing online. It’s the fifth track previewed in concert from Concrete And Gold, following the lead single, “Run”, “La Dee Da” and “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” in Iceland on Jun 16th and “Sunday Rain” in Latvia on Jun 21st.
Concrete And Gold arrives in stores on September 15th and follows up 2014′s Sonic Highways, as well as the 2015 EP Saint Cecilia. The new LP was produced by the band and Greg Kurstin, who has worked in the past with pop artists like Adele and Pink. There is speculation that Adele makes a guest appearance on the disc as well.
Along with its ninth album, Foo Fighters have lined up a massive North American tour this fall as well as Cal Jam, a one-day festival featuring Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Royal Blood and others. (Thanks The Pulse Of Radio and Loudwire)
The photographer who’s been working with Stone Sour has this cool 360 camera. I know this because he did some shots of Lou Brutus at K-Bear 101‘s recent show in Pocatello, ID that Lou posted on his Facebook page. Now comes this cool 360 degree filmed music video of “Somebody Stole My Eyes,” filmed at Sphere Studios in Burbank, CA. That is the studio where the band recorded their album. The Pulse Of Radio says the 360 function allows the viewer to move the camera around the room and focus on each individual performer.
Hydrograd was released last Friday (Jun 30th) and is Stone Sour’s sixth studio effort.
The band tracked the album live in the studio, cutting a total of 18 songs from which 15 made the CD. Singer Corey Taylor told us the disc is Stone Sour’s most diverse yet: “There are all kinds of elements on this album where we’re just kind of bringing it all together and just, you know, creating these really cool songs.”
Stone Sour released a total of four songs before the album arrived last week, including “Fabuless,” “Mercy,” “Taipei Person / Allah Tea” and the current single “Song #3.”
Stone Sour is touring with Korn this summer as well as appearing at several festivals. The band’s next stop is Rock Fest in Cadott, WI on Jul 14th, along with Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Avatar, Shinedown, Volbeat, Sevendust, Rob Zombie and more. The festival is 3 days this year: Jul 13-15. www.rock-fest.com. It will be hosted by our very own Lou Brutus! (Either that or he’s just stalking these bands!!!!! ;>)
This is crazy. The Pulse Of Radio also reports rare early footage of Nirvana performing in a Radio Shack store after hours as the band filmed its first primitive video has surfaced online, according to Spin. After recording their first demo tape on Jan 23rd, 1988, the band — which wasn’t even officially named Nirvana yet — headed to a Radio Shack in Aberdeen, WA the next day to film a video to accompany the music on the demo.
Clips of the performance have been seen before, but a video archivist named Mike Ziegler has unearthed the full, 17-minute recording.
Frontman Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic were joined at the video shoot by early drummer Dale Crover, who later joined the Melvins. Crover is playing live in the clip, but Cobain and Novoselic’s instruments are not plugged in and they are merely syncing along to the demo recordings.
Dave Grohl, who joined Nirvana in 1990, told us a while back that Nirvana recorded a lot of material that has never seen the light of day: “There’s a lot of unreleased stuff that no one’s ever heard. There’s a lot of unreleased stuff that I’ve never heard. I mean, I was the fifth drummer. I didn’t join until 1990, but spent a lot of time demoing and recording basement practices, and things like that.”
Ziegler has also posted footage of the band playing with plasma globes at that same Radio Shack, along with full, unedited 1993 video interviews with Cobain, Novoselic, and Grohl. Cobain’s interview alone is 90 minutes long. Watch them below:
And now, THIS!
Loudwire reports Insane Clown Posse know how to put on a show, and this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos is filled with a mix of rock, metal, hip-hop, comedy and even movies for those in attendance. Among the rock and metal acts playing this year will be P.O.D., Miss May I and Mushroomhead.
They’ll be joined on the bill by Dope, Upon a Burning Body, September Mourning, Psychostick, Flaw, American Grim, Vanilla Ice, Kissing Candace, Green Jelly, The Browning and Wolfpac among others.
This year’s event will run Jul 26-29 at the Lost Lakes Amphi in Oklahoma City, and given the proximity to the water, the Gathering of the Juggalos have also added movie screenings of Jaws and Piranha 3D.
