Over the past week, Jack White’s name has become a headline staple with a handful of summertime music festivals confirming his appearance. After months of speculations and a cryptic teaser later, the singer has confirmed the release of this much-anticipated new album. On Wednesday (Jan. 10), White announced the release of his third, solo album, Boarding House Reach, by releasing two songs from it.

The first song, and lead single, “Connected By Love” was given an official music video for the occasion. The five-minute, Pasqual Gutierrez-directed clip can be seen above. The second song White unveiled is titled “Respect Commander” and can be streamed here.

In December, White posted a four-minute teaser clip titled “Servings and Portions from my Boarding House Reach.” Shortly after the mix debuted, fans began to speculate that the songs featured in the clip would be included on the new album. Theories were also popping around that the new album would be titled “Boarding House Reach” which proved to be true.

In addition to the two new songs and new album confirmation, White has also announced that he will be releasing a limited edition 7-inch vinyl featuring both “Connected By Love” and “Respect Commander.” The 7-inch will only be available this Saturday, Jan. 13, at Third Man Records’ stores in Nashville and Detroit.

Boarding House Reach is the follow-up to 2014’s Lazaretto. In support of the new album, White has already been confirmed to headline several music festivals including Shaky Knees in Atlanta, Boston Calling, and New York’s Governors Ball. While there has been no official release date given, Boarding House Reach will be released through White’s Third Man Records and Columbia Records.

Senses Fail drop video for ‘Gold Jacket, Green Jacket’

Senses Fail have returned with another new track from their upcoming new album, If There Is A Light, It Will Find You. On Thursday (Jan. 11), the New Jersey-founded band released the music video for their latest single “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket.” The over-three-minute clip finds frontman Buddy Nielsen not exactly having a very good day with his encounters with people.

First we see him involved in a car crash, but not really caring as he sits there drinking his coffee. Then, as he’s running away, he makes a set of construction workers drop something they were carrying while a poor, unfortunate pizza delivery man gets caught in the mess. As if that isn’t enough, Nielsen has an encounter with a group of close-minded protesters who are in process of protesting the LGBTQ community. While a slew of bad things seem to be happening, at the end everyone involved get sprayed with glitter and their angry tendencies disappear as they head to a house party / jam session with the rest of Senses Fail.

“The inspiration for this video is Falling Down meets the clown sing-along part in Billy Madison,” explains Nielsen. “The idea was to basically have people coming at me for various reasons but I am able to stave them all off and have them join in on the fun with a glitter bomb. Nothing makes a bad time more fun than a little glitter. Overall I just wanted to have a video that was fun and left you feeling good about the world and life.”

“Gold Jacket, Green Jacket” will join “Double Cross” on Senses Fail’s upcoming seventh studio album. If There Is A Light, It Will Find You will be released on Feb. 16 through Pure Noise Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website here.

In support of the album’s new release, Senses Fail will hit the road at the end of February alongside Reggie and the Full Effect, Have Mercy, and Household. The upcoming tour will kick off on Feb. 27 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California and conclude over a month later on March 31 at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas.

Watch Fall Out Boy spoof infomercials for new music video

With a little over a week before the release of their brand new album, Fall Out Boy has given fans something to hold them over during the next few days. On Thursday (Jan. 11), the Chicago-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Wilson (Expensive Mistakes).” Staying true to their philosophy of never taking anything too seriously, the music video finds the band running their own infomercial channel where they sell a slew of old memorabilia and even themselves.

The items that the band can be found selling include, but are not limited to frontman Patrick Stump’s suit from the “Dance, Dance” music video; Stump’s hand from the “Youngblood Chronicles”; Holy Water that is priced at $899.99, but reduced to $56.99; a limited supply of Fall Out Boy fidget spinners; and Franklin the sheep from the cover of Infinity on High.

As if the random items being sold weren’t wacky enough, the infomercial also lists the guys as items that are up for sale. If you purchase Stump for the prices of $736.99, you get a free fedora. Like all infomercials, there’s a phone number given throughout the video for viewers to call and purchase an item of their choosing.

As opposed to it being a fake number, viewers can actually call the number which will direct to them to an automated voice messaging system. The voice messaging system then allows the caller to pre-order the album or even hear a funny joke. How about that for a fun spin?

Watch the music video for “Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)” above.

“Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)” will join previously released songs “The Last of the Real Ones,” “Young and Menace,” and “Champion” on MANIA. After pushing back the release date of the album, MANIA will finally see a release date of Jan. 19. Pre-orders for MANIA are currently available on the band’s website here.

Watch The Killers’ powerful video for ‘Rut’

With their massive “Wonderful, Wonderful” currently in effect and handful of music festivals already confirmed for the summer, The Killers have given fans another surprise. On Wednesday (Jan. 10), the Las Vegas-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Rut.” The over four-and-a-half-minute clip begins with the word “RUT” on the screen but shifts after displaying for a couple of seconds.

The word is soon replaced by shots of a blinking electronic clock, a set of mountains during the sunrise, and what appears to be a hole in a concrete wall. The viewer is then introduced to the two protagonists in the clip; a little girl and a woman who the viewer can assume are the same person. As the video progresses, the viewer watches as the little girl goes through some major events in her life which would probably resulted in the adult having her own issues.

During an interview with SPIN, frontman Brandon Flowers revealed that the song was inspired by his wife, Tana Mundkowsky. In the chat, Flowers revealed that Mundkowsky experiences PTSD due to a traumatizing childhood which could explain why the band decided to go this route for the music video for the song.

“I, of course, okay’ed it with her, but that ended up being a big part of this record,” Flowers explains. “And so the song is from my wife’s point of view, and it’s from her perspective. And it’s about resilience. So, she’s singing to me. It’s almost like this submission, it’s her accepting like, ‘I’m facing this thing.'”

“Rut” joins previous singles “The Man” and “Run for Cover” on the Killers’ recently released record, Wonderful, Wonderful. The album, the group’s much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Battle Born, was met with a lot of favorable reviews from music critics. Showing the band’s resilience and the dedication of their fans, Wonderful, Wonderful  debuted at the number one spot on Billboard’s 200 chart, making it the band’s first album to reach the number one spot in the United States.

Eminem, The Killers, Muse to headline Bonnaroo 2018

Eminem, The Killers, and Muse are just some of the artists who will make their way down to Tennessee in early June for the 2018 incarnation of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. On Tuesday (Jan. 9), festival organizers unleashed the lengthy lineup for the music festival’s seventeenth annual event.

For Eminem, Bonnaroo joins a long list of summertime music festivals the rapper will headline. As of now, the “Lose Yourself” musician will perform at California’s Coachella, Boston Calling, and New York’s Governors Ball. Like Eminem, The Killers will headline this year’s Boston Calling as well as Napa Valley’s BottleRock. As for Muse, the English band will also headline BottleRock alongside the Killers.

In addition to Eminem, the Killers, and Muse, acts like Future, Bassnectar, Paramore, Kaskade, Sturgill Simpson, Bon Iver, Khalid, Dua Lipa, Chromeo, Alt-J, Sheryl Crow, The Revivalist, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Manchester Orchestra, LANY, Sir Sly, and many more will appear at the four-day music festival. As revealed on the official flyer, Bon Iver will perform “two unique sets” during the event. Even though no additional information was given about that, fans should probably expect something cool from the Wisconsin-based band who have been quiet since the release of 2016’s 22, A Million.

Bonnaroo is set to take place during the weekend of June 7 – 10 at the Great Stage Park (aka the Farm) in Manchester, Tennessee. General ticket sale as well as VIP packages will go on sale beginning this Friday, Jan. 12, at 10 a.m. EST. For more information about Bonnaroo, head on over to the event’s website here.
