Watch Green Day take the dancy route in ‘Father of All…’ music video

Green Day are proving they are still the father(s) of all motherfuckers.

On Friday (Sept. 20), the California punk rockers unleashed the music video for their recently released single “Father of All…” The two-and-a-half-minute music video features the band —decked out in black and gold attire— performing in front of a red-lit background. Hidden in the shadows is an array of dancers giving the video a very “Chicago”-esque feel.

In between the shots of the band is footage of random people dancing circa different decades. While the video focuses on dancing, the clip also features some mosh pits, wrestling, and even a gorilla having a heck of a time in a kiddie pool.

“We wanted to make something about dancing. Anxiety. Tribalism. Joy.. and straight-up violence. It’s the history of us. Meaning all of us,” Green Day posted on Instagram.

But if for some reason you feel like all the dancing was choreographed, you’d be wrong…at least according to the trio.

“None of this is choreographed..(except the hotties in red) we don’t need to be choreographed,” the group jokes.

Watch the video for “Father of All…” above.

“Father of All…” is the first single off Green Day’s upcoming 13th studio album Father of All…The forthcoming release is due out Feb. 7 via the band’s longtime home of Reprise Warner.

The music video comes a week after Green Day announced not only the release of the new album but also a massive summer 2020 tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Even though the Hella Mega world tour isn’t set to happen until next summer, tickets for the tour are already on sale and going fast.

The All-American Rejects return with their scathy new song ‘Gen Why? (DGAF)’

When a band has a song titled “Gives You Hell” in their discography, do you really expect them to lie low and not get petty with newer jams? Well, in the case of the All-American Rejects, the answer is “um…no.”

On Tuesday (Sept. 17), the Oklahoma-founded band unleashed the lyric video for another new song featured on their recently released EP. Titled “Gen Why? (DGAF),” the track finds the act getting a “little” shady during its three-and-a-half-minute runtime.

The word-based clip combines footage of teenagers circa the 1950s rebelling against everything while also incorporating some modern advances like text messages and social media.

In a note on Twitter, frontman Tyson Ritter reveals what inspired the song.

“When we were on Interscope, I wrote this to piss off people over there that wanted another ‘Give You Hell.’ So to me, this song is a special kind of monster created to leave a bad taste in your mouth and piss you off even for having heard it.”

Ouch. Talk about scathy.

Watch the video for “Gen Why? (DGAF)” above.

“Gen Why? (DGAF)” is featured on the All-American Rejects recently released EP, Send Her to Heaven. In July, the group unleashed the music video for the three-track record’s lead single (and title track) “Send Her to Heaven.”

The recently released album marks the band’s first new set of tunes since 2017’s “Sweat” and “Close Your Eyes.” It’s also the quartet’s first record through their new home of Epitaph Records.

As previously explained by guitarist Nick Wheeler, don’t expect these three songs to be a precursor to a brand new record. The foursome has no current plans of releasing the long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Kids in the Street.

Lana Del Rey, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cyrus team up for ‘Angel’

Charlie’s Angels are back and deadlier than ever.

On Friday (Sept. 13), the much-anticipated “Charlie’s Angels” collaboration from Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey, and Miley Cyrus was finally unleashed. In a bid to compete with Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women Part 1” (which was THE song of the early 2000s version of the franchise), the three pop stars joined forces for “Don’t Call Me Angel.”

The almost-four-minute cinematic music video finds all three musicians taking on the different Angel positions. Cyrus is the first to appear on screen in a dark boxing ring. In the room, we watch as she practices her boxing skills with a partner, rolls around the ring, and holds a guy hostage. We can safely assume she’s “the muscle” of the group.

In contrast, Grande’s appearance is light, airy, and bright. Decked out in a white bustier and wings, Grande gallivants around the foyer of a brightly lit mansion. She slowly makes her way to an open-air space of the estate, armed with a pair of binoculars to keep an eye on the sky. We can only assume that her role in the group is both lookout and leader.

Del Rey is the last to appear on the screen and can be found in two different locations; a room lined with fire pits and a hacker’s paradise. Del Rey gives off the impression of two different characters; the “femme fatale” when she’s in the fire pit room and a ruthless assassin when she’s in the hacker’s paradise (hello, did you see her aim when she threw that dagger?!).

Watch the Hanna Lux Davis-directed music video for “Don’t Call Me Angel” above.

“Don’t Call Me Angel” will be featured on the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” soundtrack. It was previously confirmed that Grande would be an executive producer on the album. Because of this, it’s only fitting that her song is the record’s lead single and movie’s theme song.

“Charlie’s Angels” punches its way into theaters on Nov. 15 while the soundtrack is due out Nov. 1 through Republic.

The film stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as Charlie’s famous agents and Elizabeth Banks as Bosley.

In late June, a snippet of the new song was featured in the movie’s first official trailer introducing us to the new agents.

Ice Nine Kills channel ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ for ‘Savages’ lyric video

Halloween is right around the corner, which means Ice Nine Kills is getting ready to make their annual spooky way across the country. But before they can take their favorite horror film characters on the road, the band has unleashed the lyric video for their latest single.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), the Massachusetts-founded band unleashed the lyric video for their latest single “Savages.” Taking visual inspiration from the slasher film that inspired the lyrics (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), the look of the video is very similar to that of the 1974 movie. The clip includes footage of Ice Nine Kills performing for a packed house as well as footage that looks like it came from the “based on a true story” thriller flick.

Watch the video for “Savages” above.

“Savages” is featured on Ice Nine Kills horror film-inspired album The Silver Scream. The record, the act’s fifth full-length album, was released on October 2018. Late last month, the band announced plans to release a deluxe version of the record. The reworked album will feature all 13 previously released tracks as well as a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a song inspired by the 1996 slasher flick Scream.

In support of the re-released work, Ice Nine Kills previously announced a set of fall tour dates. The “Octane Accelerator” tour begins on Oct. 29 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and concludes a little over a month later on Dec. 1 at Webster Hall in New York.

Supporting acts include Fit for a King, Light the Torch, Make Them Suffer, and Awake At Last.

Katy Perry (and Nugget) squash the competition in ‘Small Talk’

Katy Perry’s latest video is going to the dogs…literally.

On Friday (Aug. 30), the “California Girls” singer unleashed the music video for her latest standalone single “Small Talk.” The three-minute video features Perry as a dog show mother whose life revolves around dog shows and her pooch (Perry’s real-life dog Nugget).

We watch as dog mother and dog son do everything together from sleeping on the same and eating breakfast to working out and dressing up. They both arrive at the “Mutt Ball” and quickly take down the competition (it’s true what they say, pets really do look like their owners).

As she accepts her trophy, a handsome stranger (and his Weimaraner) strolls into the room and the singer’s life. Nugget’s life is suddenly turned on its head as Perry’s relationship with the stranger begins to escalate. Upset, Nugget starts to act out eventually earning a place in the dog house.

When the handsome stranger moves in, Nugget begins to realize that his time being mommy’s number one is over. While he’s busy stewing about not being the most important thing in his mom’s life, the stranger’s Weimaraner drops a toy in front of him as a form of an olive branch.

Watch the Tanu Muino-directed music video for “Small Talk” above.

“Small Talk” is Perry’s third standalone single. Earlier this year she released “Never Really Over” and her collaboration with Zedd, “365.”

No word on whether these three songs will be featured on a potential new record, but that doesn’t mean fans are not hopeful. Perry’s last full-length album was 2017’s lukewarmly received Witness.

Charli XCX joins forces with HAIM on ‘Warm’

It’s almost Labor Day weekend, and Charli XCX is here to help you celebrate (unless you’re in South Florida like us) with a brand new song.

On Friday (Aug. 30), the musician unleashed the latest single from her upcoming third studio album. Titled “Warm,” the almost four-minute tune finds the singer joining forces with HAIM and questioning the status of a romantic relationship.

“It’s about unrequited love or more just like when you are in it with someone, and they are a player, and you aren’t in that zone, and you just can’t get on the same page,” Charli says about the new song in a press statement

“Danielle [Haim], Este [Haim] and Alana [Haim] came over to our studio house, and they wrote their part, we were in LA when we did that, and I’m just very happy we got to collaborate.”

Listen to “Warm” above.

“Warm” joins a slew of previously released tracks such as “Gone” with Christine and the Queens, “1999” with Troye Sivan, “Blame It on Your Love” with Lizzo, and “Cross You Out” with Sky Ferreira on Charli.

Charli is due out Sept. 13 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

The 15-track record is the follow-up to 2014’s Sucker.

Earlier this summer, Charli announced plans to embark on a fall tour. The Charli LIVE World Tour will invade North America throughout September and October.

At the time of publication, a handful of shows have been classified as sold out. Those gigs include Emo’s in Austin on Sept. 24, Showbox Market in Seattle on Oct. 4, the House of Blues in Chicago on Oct. 12, the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on Oct. 18, Union Transfer in Philadelphia on Oct. 19, and her final tour stop at Terminal 5 in New York on Oct. 22.

Tommy Genesis, Brooke Candy, Dorian Electra, and Allie X will support Charli on select dates.

Lana Del Rey goes ‘Attack of the 50 Foot Woman’ for ‘Doin’ Time’

Summer may be ending, but Lana Del Rey is not letting that happen without a new music video. On Thursday (Aug. 29), a day before her new album is set to drop, the California-loving singer unleashed the music video for her cover of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time.”

The four-and-a-half-minute clip finds Del Rey channel the 1958 film “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.” Del Rey plays the 50-foot woman who spends her time walking around Venice like it’s nothing more than a playground. We watch as she strolls around the downtown area, checks her makeup in a building, and eventually reaches the beach.

In a twist, the giant Del Rey is just part of a film that is playing at a drive-in where a blonde-wig wearing Del Rey (Lizzy Grant, is that you?) is with a date. After her partner goes missing, she goes to look for him and finds him in a car, making out with another girl.

While our blonde version of the singer just walks off, the giant version comes off of the screen to show the two-timing louse what a scumbag he is before returning to the screen.

Watch the music video for “Doin’ Time” above.

“Doin’ Time” is featured on Del Rey’s much-anticipated sixth studio album. Norman Fucking Rockwell is due out this Friday, Aug. 30 through Interscope Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

As previously revealed, Jack Antonoff, Rick Nowels, Zach Dawes, and Happy Perez are all listed as producers on the upcoming album.

How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it,” “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest.”

In support of the new album, Del Rey will embark on a fall time tour later this year. The short North American leg of the tour begins on Sept. 21 at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York and concludes on Oct. 10 at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre in San Diego.

The full list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

Angels and Airwaves channel the Beach Boys with ‘Kiss and Tell’

Surprise!

Angels and Airwaves have released a brand new song.

On Thursday (Aug. 29), the Tom DeLonge-fronted band unleashed heir second new song of the year. Titled “Kiss and Tell,” the latest track comes a day after the band kicked off their much-anticipated comeback tour. According to DeLonge, the song was inspired by the Beach Boys.

“The beginning of the song is really an ode to the Beach Boys,” the musician reveals.

“It opens with three-part harmonies to create an introduction with multi-dimensionality. We wanted to create a sound that had electronic elements right alongside classic rock and pop-punk melodic structures.  Lyrically, this song is specifically about balancing on the edge of a razor blade. Doing something you’re not supposed to be doing, and although you might die while doing it, it’s still very much keeping you feeling alive.”

Listen to “Kiss and Tell” above.

While the act has been mum about a new studio album, fans are hopeful that both “Kiss and Tell” and previously-released “Rebel Girl” will find a home on the group’s sixth studio album. Angel and Airwaves last full-length record was 2014’s The Dream Walker, and in 2017, they released We Don’t Need to Whisper Acoustic – EP.

Last night, the four-piece made their triumphant return to the stage after seven years. Taking the stage at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California, their 22-song setlist included classic AVA songs, some blink-182 (“I Miss You,” “Aliens Exist”) and Boxcar Racer (“There Is”) covers as well as the live debut of six new tracks.

Angels and Airwaves full tour itinerary can be found here.

Fortnite, Target uniforms, and grade school kids; Check out Blink-182’s music video for ‘Darkside’

If you’re current scratching your head and asking yourself “what the hell is going on in Blink-182’s new music video?” then you are not alone.

On Wednesday (Aug. 28), the California-founded pop-punkers unleashed the music video for their latest single “Darkside.” The three-minute video finds the trio inside of what appears to be a grade school.

Throughout the clip, we see the guys playing their instruments in different locations around the school (the gym, playground, room) while kids dance around them. But don’t expect the dance moves to be fancy or known to people who aren’t Gen-Zers; the kids are getting their Fortnite dances on.

Like some comments have said, “it looks like a Kidz Bop version of “feeling This” or our personal favorite “it’s three minutes of Target employees doing Fortnite dances.”

Watch the music video for “Darkside” above.

“Darkside” joins previously released singles “Blame It on My Youth,” “Happy Days,” and “Generational Divide” on blink’s upcoming new album. Officially titled NINE, the record is due out Sept. 20.

Pre-orders are available on the band’s website.

Blink-182 are currently in the final stages of their massive summertime tour with Lil’ Wayne and Neck Deep. They’ll take over the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Portland this Friday (Aug. 30). The remaining tour stops can be found here.

Walk the Moon get creepy with ‘Lose You Again’

Walk the Moon are closing out the week by giving fans a brand new song. On Friday (Aug. 23), the Ohio-founded band unleashed their third new song of the year, “Lose You Again.’

The tune comes days after the four-piece began teasing new music on social media. Each day, short clips of each band member performing a snippet of the new song would appear on their official social media account.

In a post about the song, the band reveals that “‘Lose You Again’ came from somewhere between our dreams & our nightmares.”

They also revealed that the song came together with the help of BRÅVES.

“The song is a hybrid creation with our brothers, the enigmatic BRÅVES.”

The three-and-a-half-minute clip finds frontman Nick Petricca sitting on a bed, in a dark room surrounded by a notebook, pen, keyboard, and a small flashlight. Randomly, sneaky hands start to appear from the shadows, pushing and pulling him in different directions. We’re not sure if they’re trying to inspire him to write this new song or freak him the hell out.

Watch the dark and creepy video for “Lose You Again” above. “Lose You Again” is available for streaming and purchase here.

“Lose You Again is the Walk the Moon’s third standalone single of the year. In January, they premiered their radio smash “Timebomb” and then followed it up a few months later with “Eat Your Heart Out.”

At the moment, it appears that all these songs are standalone singles, but anything can happen within the next couple of months. “Timebomb,” “Eat Your Heart Out,” and “Lose You Again” are Walk the Moon’s first new set of tunes since the release of their fourth studio album, What If Nothing.
