Issues to head out on headlining fall tour

Last weekend, Issues left fans in a tizzy when they took to social media to tease that they had some major news scheduled to be revealed later that week. “I feel like I wanna announce something on June 21st…#Headspace,” said the post written on the group’s official Twitter page. A couple of days after the initial post was uploaded, the group followed-up that message with one that read: “Don’t know if we can wait until tomorrow. Might have to be today…” with a thinking emoji. As it turns out, the band couldn’t wait the extra 24 hours and confirmed what they had been hinting at for the past three days.

On Tuesday (June 20), the Georgia-based band announced a major tour set to take place during the fall months of 2017. Issues’ 2017 headlining tour will officially kick off on Sept. 24 at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and wrap up a month and half later on Nov. 3 at the House of Blues in New Orleans.

Los Angeles-based band Volumes has been confirmed as Issues’ direct supporting act for the full excursion while the identity of the second supporting act is being kept a secret. Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, June 23, here.

The upcoming tour will be in support of the group’s recently released record, Headspace. The album, their second studio record, was released back in May of 2016 through Rise Records. Headspace was met with generally positive reviews with only a handful of negative outlooks on the group’s sophomore effort. The album went on reach the number 20 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and earn the top spot on Billboard’s Alternative Albums chart with a total of 18,000 copies sold in the record’s first week.

Foo Fighters to release ‘Concrete & Gold’ in the fall

A few weeks after releasing the lead single from their at-the-time-still-untitled new record, the Foo Fighters have officially uncovered some new album information. On Tuesday (June 20), the Seattle-founded band confirmed the release of their ninth studio album. The new record will be titled Concrete & Gold and is set to be released on Sept. 15 through Roswell Records/ RCA Records.

The new album finds the band teaming up with producer Greg Kurstin whose portfolio includes artists like Sia, Pink, and Adele. While it may seem odd to see one of rock’s hardest working bands team up with a producer whose resume predominantly features pop stars with radio-friendly tunes, it was Kustin’s work with own band, The Bird & The Bee, that brought the Foos to his front door.

“It blew my mind, ‘Again and Again,'” frontman  Dave Grohl said in a press release about The Bird & The Bee’s song. “It was so much more sophisticated than anything I’d ever heard and I became obsessed.”

In the same release, Grohl also revealed how the group wanted to make the “biggest sounding” Foo Fighters album and having Kustin on board helped them reach that goal.

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever,” he said. “To make a gigantic rock record but with [producer] Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”

Prior to Concrete & Gold‘s confirmation, the Foos had already revealed three songs that will be on the 11-track album; “The Sky is a Neighborhood,” “La Dee Da,” and lead single, “Run.”

In support of the new album’s release, the group will spend the rest of the year touring internationally. Before hitting the European touring circuit, the guys will launch their own music festival named Cal Jam 17. Cal Jam 17 will take place n Oct. 7 in San Bernardino, California and will include performances by Queens of the Stone Age, Liam Gallagher, Japandroids, and many more. After that, they will head across the pond and make appearances at Glastonbury Festival, Sonic Summer Festival, Lollapalooza Berlin, and Rock the Beach.

Concrete & Gold is the highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s 2014 release, Sonic Highways. During their time away, they did release a surprise EP titled Saint Cecilia to hold fans over until the new album was completed. For now, the complete track listing can be seen below.

CONCRETE & GOLD TRACK LISTING:

1. “T-Shirt”
2. “Run”
3. “Make it Right”
4. “The Sky is a Neighborhood”
5. “La Dee Da”
6. “Dirty Water”
7. “Arrows”
8. “Happy Ever After (Zero Hour)”
9. “Sunday Rain”
10. “The Line”
11. “Concrete and Gold”

A Perfect Circle announces tour plans for the fall

After being away from the music world for six years, A Perfect Circle reunited earlier this year for a handful of shows, much to the surprise and joy of their longtime fans. As it turns out, the handful of shows has now expanded to a full North American tour scheduled for later this fall. On Monday (June 19), the California-founded supergroup unveiled plans to hit the North American touring circuit later this year; their first full tour since 2011.

The 27-stop tour will kick off with the group’s appearance at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento on Oct. 21 and wrap up about a month and a half later at the Matthew Knight Center in Eugene, Oregon on Dec. 4. The group’s fall itinerary will include stops at several major cities including Brooklyn, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Detroit and many more. Tickets for the upcoming shows will go on sale beginning this Friday, June 23, at 10 a.m. local time here.

A Prefect circle’s upcoming tour announcement comes on the heels of the band confirming they were in the middle of working on a brand new album; their first in 13 years. According to the group, the new album, which will be released through BMG Rights Management, should see a release time frame of late 2017 or some time in 2018. A Perfect Circle’s still-untitled fourth studio album will be the follow-up to 2004’s eMOTIVe. In 2013, the group released their greatest hits compilation Three Sixty as well as a live album box set titled A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone and Echo.

Listen to Silverstein’s new single ‘Lost Positives’

With a month left until the release of their ninth studio album and a couple of days before the 2017 Vans Warped tour will begin, Silverstein has unleashed a brand new song. On Thursday (June 15), the Canadian band headed over to Alternative Press to debut their second single off Dead Reflection, “Lost Positive.” During the song’s premiere, frontman Shane Told and guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau talked to the publication about the new song which Told admitted was one of his favorites of all time and while Rousseau said was the first song he wrote for the album.

“It’s also my favorite song on the record for a number of reasons. I like that it’s a bit different from what we’ve done in the past; it’s not something we’ve done much of before, and melodically it’s different,” Told begins. “Rhythmically, the beat in the chorus is one we’ve not used so much, but it still has a hard-hitting riff, and some interesting verses.”

“It was the first song I wrote for the album, and I wrote it with Steve Brodsky of Cave In and Mutoid Man,” reveals Rousseau. “In its original form, it was wild and very different — it was startling to everybody. If you write a really different song late in the process, it’s less jarring, but for it to be the first one, it was like, ‘Oh my God — what record are we about to make?'”

But if you’re expecting the Dead Reflection to be a straight up hardcore record, then this might not be for you. According to Told, this album is all about diverse sounds with some tunes leaning on the pop-punk side of the spectrum while others may be on the heavy side of things.

“So with this record, yes, there’s a lot of diversity, but all our records have that, just maybe this one has it even more so. [You mention] ‘The Afterglow’ being super-poppy, and it’s basically a pop-punk song! And there are songs like ‘Last Looks’ which are very heavy; so there’s a lot of diversity.” To read the full interview with Told and Rousseau, head on over to Alternative Presshere while “Lost Positive” can be streamed above.

In support of Dead Reflection, Silverstein will be heading out on Warped Tour for the complete trek. After a month or so off, they will once again hit the road, but this time in Europe. Silverstein’s complete itinerary for the summer and fall can be seen below.

Foster the People confirms new album, adds tour dates

Back in April, Foster the People confirmed their return to the music world when they unleashed their first new song in almost three years, “Doing it for the Money.” Instantly, the new song became an alternative radio station staple while no official name or release date was given for the new set of tunes. On Tuesday (June 13), the California-founded band confirmed that their third studio album will be titled Sacred Hearts Club and will see a release date of July 21.

Listen to The Killers’ new funky song ‘The Man’

Less than a week after word spread that The Killers would be releasing a brand new song very soon and giving a teaser of it, the four-piece has finally unveiled the full version of the new track. On Wednesday (June 14), the LAs Vegas-based band unveiled the audio of their first new song in five years, Christmas songs excluded, “The Man.” Frontman Brandon Flowers headed over the Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to premiered the song as the “Hottest Record.” During the interview that followed the upbeat tune, Flowers revealed that the new album, which has been confirmed to be titled Wonderful Wonderful, was produced by Jacknife Lee and Stuart Price, who Flowers has worked with in the past.

“We mostly did it with Jacknife and then we did one song that I wrote with Stuart. But it was great, it’s always nice to bring fresh blood in and Jacknife, we have never worked with before and he’s so  creative right now and he is so energetic and sometime, you need that.”

When asked by the DJ about how the new tune sounds, Flowers said the following: “Sonically, it’s pretty funky. Funkier than anything we’ve ever done before and I do hear things that remind me of quintessential Killers things and that starts with Mark’s [Stoermer] bass line, our bass player, has a prominent feature on this song and this is what he’s really great at.” To listen to the complete interview, head on over here.

Though an official release date has not been given for Wonderful Wonderful, the new album will be the group’s fifth studio album. Wonderful Wonderful is the Killers’ follow-up to 2012’s Battle Born. Last year, they released a compilation of their previously released Christmas song and named it Don’t Waste Your Wishes.

Watch Green Day channel their past with ‘Revolution Radio’

With the North American leg of their Revolution Radio tour on the horizon, Green Day has taken a break from their live shows to give fans a new music video. On Tuesday (June 13), the California-founded band released the music video for their latest single, and album’s title track, “Revolution Radio.” The music video combines archival footage and new footage of the band performing at 924 Gilman Street, the Berkeley punk venue where the group formed.

About two minutes into the clip, there is a blink-and-you-miss-it reference to the band’s original name, Sweet children, which appear painted in white on a wooden plank. Even with the almost 30-year difference and some changes like the guys’ hair color and age, some things do remain the same like 924 Gilman Street’s interior is the same and Green Day can still put on a show. Watch the music video for “Revolution Radio” above.

“Revolution Radio” is featured on Green Day’s recently released record by the same name. The record was released last October through Reprise Records and instantly earned the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

In support of Revolution Radio, Green Day will hit the road this summer for a massive summer tour. The North American leg of the Revolution Radio tour will kick off on Aug. 1 at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington and wrap up on Sept. 13 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California. United Kingdom-founded act, Catfish and the Bottlemen, will open for Green Day during the full excursion. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

Listen: Broadside gets serious on ‘Laps Around a Picture Frame’

With a handful of days left until the release of their sophomore album, Broadside has released yet another new tune from the upcoming album. On Friday (June 9), the Virginia-based band unveiled the audio for their third single, “Laps Around a Picture Frame.” Unlike most of their other tunes, this one starts off with a surprise as the vocals are not those of vocalist Oliver Baxxter, but rather guitarist Dorian Cooke.

According to the group this was done on purpose to show two different people suffering from the same exact medical issue. “We wanted to capture two completely different humans having the exact same mental breakdown,” explains Cooke about the new song in a press release. “We wrote the music, lyrics, and arrangement around a panic attack in a crowded environment. Even the name is an exercise for panic attacks taught to me by a therapist. The persona I represent is of someone that’s on the higher end of the social spectrum – someone popular and beautiful on the outside, but has that constant struggle internally.”

Like Cooke, Baxxter portrays someone who also suffers from panic attacks, but unlike Cooke’s character, comes from another side of the social spectrum. “I portray a young female persona shaped by the harshness of her environment, which is a story shared with me by a close friend whenever she is in a public setting. I know it’s something much more common than people tend to show.” Listen to the new song above.

“Laps Around a Picture Frame” will join previously released tracks “Puzzle Pieces,” “Hidden Colors,” and “Paradise” on Broadside’s upcoming album, ParadiseParadise is set to be released this Friday, June 16, through Victory Record. Pre-orders are still available here. All pre-orders will include an instant download of “Puzzle Pieces.”

Last week, Broadside concluded their spring tour with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts, and Nothing, Nowhere. Recently, the group announced a pair of music festivals gigs including Syke Fest which will take July 15 in their hometown of Richmond, Virginia as well as a headlining gig at the Sophomore Slump Fest in Greensboro, NC on Aug. 5.

Dropkick Murphys drop video for ‘Until the Next Time’

The Dropkick Murphys may have released their brand new album, 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory, earlier this year, but don’t expect the Boston boys to stop releasing music videos for the record’s tracks. On Thursday (June 8), the group released their music video for their latest single “Until the Next Time.” The video has a simple premise that celebrates the fans with the four-minute clip mostly featuring shots of the band’s fans at the shows, meeting them behind-the scenes, and even over taking the  stage while the band is still performing.

“The music video for ‘Until the Next Time’ was directed by our longtime friend and amazing photographer Gregory Nolan during our 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory Tour in both Europe and the U.S. This song is about our relationship with YOU, the best fans on the planet,” explains vocalist/bassist Ken Casey in a press release.

He continues: “It’s about the memories and the great friends we’ve made along the way…about the pleasure of coming to so many cities that we feel we can almost call home, and the bittersweet moments of having to say goodbye and move on to the next town every night.”

Watch the music video for “Until the Next Time” above.

“Until the Next Time” is featured on the band’s ninth studio album, 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory which was released back in January. The record debut at the number eight spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart and came out at the top spot in the independently released album category.

In support of the new record, the band has been touring relentlessly since January. Currently, the band is in Europe on the European leg of the 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory Tour. Once the tour concludes on July 16 at the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin, Ireland, the Dropkick Murphys will return to the United States for their joint “From Boston to Berkeley Tour” with Rancid.

The “From Boston to Berkeley Tour” will kick off on July 27 at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine and wrap up a month later on Aug. 26 at the It’s Not Dead Festival in San Bernardino, CA. The Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers will open the tour from July 27 to Aug. 9. From Aug. 11 to the end of the tour, The Selecter and Kevin Seconds from 7 Seconds will replace The Bouncing Souls and Burns.

The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

Reports: The Killers to release new album in the fall

Update:

Surprise! Listen to a snippet of “The Man” now:


It’s been five years since The Killers released their last studio album, so could things change this upcoming fall? On Friday (June 9), a report surfaced that fans could be a seeing a brand new album from the Las Vegas band as soon as late September. Early Friday morning, rumors began to circulate about the release time frame when Fox Sports Australia’s Fox Footy revealed that the band would be one of the headliners at this year’s Australian Football League’s grand final.

While the AFL has refused to verify its entertainment booking for the major event, Fox Footy says it was confirmed by “music industry sources.” In addition to their first show in Australia since Big Day Out in 2013, the group will also reportedly release their new album ten days before the headlining gig.

The AFL’s showcase event is set to take place on Saturday, Sept. 30 which means the still-unconfirmed new album will be released on Wednesday, Sept. 20. As it has been pointed out by several publications, new albums are typically released on Fridays, not Wednesdays (it used to be Tuesdays, but that changed in 2015).

While everything at this point is just hearsay, there may be further evidence of the band releasing a new song as soon as next week. In the same report, Fox Footy also claims that the band will release a new song titled “The Man” on Thursday, June 15. Last week, the band posted an image of frontman Brandon Flowers wearing a leather jacket with “THE MAN” sprawled across the back. Then, on Thursday (June 8), the band posted a link to a mailing list sign up on Twitter with the accompanying message, “Hear new music from The Killers before anyone else.”

The Killers’ last studio album was 2012’s Battle Born. Last year, they collected all their past Christmas singles and released them as Don’t Waste Your Wishes.
