Blink-182 confirms the release date for their ‘California’ follow-up

Mark it down, guys. Blink-182’s new album is heading our way this fall. On Friday (July 19), the California-founded band appeared on “Good Morning America” to perform their current radio single “Blame it on My Youth.”

Following the live performance, frontman Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker participated in a short interview where the host revealed the duo had some big news concerning new music.

Turns out, the big announcement was the official release date for the group’s long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s California.

“New music right now. September 20th is the release date of the album,” Hoppus said to an excited audience. Watch the clip here.

Blink-182 is currently on the road with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep on their co-headlining summer tour. Tonight, the band does not have a show, but the tour will continue tomorrow (July 20) at the Veterans United Home Loans Ampitheatre in Virginia Beach. The full list of upcoming tour stops can be found here.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of their third studio effort, blink-182 previously announced that they will perform Enema of the State, in full, during the current excursion.

Last week, the tour made headlines after tour mate Lil Wayne told an unsuspecting audience in Bristow, Virginia that he may be exiting the assignment well before the trek’s last day.

“I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour but make some noise for blink-182 for including me anyway. This might be my last night, though, let’s go.”

Hours after the fan-shot video went viral, the rapper responded on Twitter saying that everything was okay and that he had no plans on leaving the tour.

“Yesterday was krazy! But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour!” the rapper posted on Twitter.

He continues: “I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”

Watch: Lana Del Rey debuts two new songs at the Ally Coalition’s benefit concert

Lana Del Rey’s new album may not see the light of day until 2019, but fans have been given another taste of the forthcoming release. On Wednesday (Dec. 5), the New York-born singer took the stage at New York’s Town Hall for the Ally Coalition’s Talent Show benefit concert. During her performance, the musician played a total of four songs; two of which made their live debut at the event.

The set included previously released tracks “How to Disappear” and “Venice Bitch” and was rounded out by new tracks “Hey Blue Baby” and “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy.” As per Del Rey’s own admission, the two new songs are “country songs,” a departure from her usual dream-induced indie style.

“Me and Jack wrote a couple of country songs just for fun, so we thought we’d play them,” Del Rey told guests. Accompanying Del Rey on stage was the new album’s producer and Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff, who was also the event’s co-organizer.

Watch Del Rey and Antonoff treat fans to “Hey Blue Baby” above while “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy” can be seen below.

“Venice Bitch,” “How to Disappear,” “Hey Blue Baby,” and “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy” will join lead single “Mariners Apartment Complex” on Del Rey’s upcoming new album. Titled Norman Fucking Rockwell, the musician’s sixth studio album will reportedly see a release time frame of 2019, though not specific date has been given.

Norman Fucking Rockwell is the follow-up to Del Rey’s 2017 release, Lust for Life.

Joining Del Rey on the list of performers at the event were Hayley Kiyoko, Bleachers, Regina Spektor, fun.’s Andrew Dost, Rostam, and Jacqueline Novak.

The benefit concert was to raise funds for the not-for-profit organization the Ally Coalition, which aims to “end discrimination against LGBTQ people by highlighting systemic inequality and LGBTQ-serving organizations and creating opportunities for fans and entertainers to advocate for equality.”

Watch Panic! at the Disco bring their ‘Say Amen’ music video to life on ‘Ellen’

If Brendon Urie ever wants to play the role of a secret agent/super-spy in the near future, he may already have an audition tape on hand. On Tuesday (May 8), Panic! at the Disco headed over to the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform their current single, “Say Amen (Saturday Night).” Instead of going the typical route with just a plain performance, the group decided to take thing up another notch.

Taking inspiration from the official music video for the tune, the live performance follows Urie as he makes his way from the green room to the main studio, all while being attacked by ninjas dressed like normal production crew members and/or audience members.

Oh yeah, did we also mention that Urie is singing live while he’s being attacked by the undercover ninjas, bottles, and vases? Watch the complete performance for “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” above.

“Say Amen (Saturday Night)” will join previously released track “(F*** A) Silver Lining” on Panic! at the Disco’s forthcoming sixth studio album. Pray for the Wicked is due out on June 22 through the band’s longtime home of Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for Pray for the Wicked are available here.

In support of Pray for the Wicked‘s release, the Las Vegas-founded band will embark on their massive Pray for the Wicked summer tour in July. The tour will kick off July 11 at the Target Center in Minneapolis and conclude a little over a month later on Aug. 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Watch Paramore bring Roseville to life on ‘Colbert’

Listen up residents of Roseville! Paramore may be getting ready to hit the road once again next month, but in the meantime, they’re getting in on some television appearances. On Tuesday (May 1), the Tennessee-founded band headed over to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to perform their current single, “Rose-Colored Boy.”

Much like the official music video for the tune, the clip begins with a real production assistant doing a live countdown on camera, though this is usually done behind the camera. As the music begins to play around her, frontwoman Hayley Williams looks a little freaked out as if this was all unexpected. As the song continues and the camera pan to the band on the stage, the set up looks like it came straight from the studio where the music video for “Rose-Colored Boy” was filmed with all the polyester clothing, bright, but grungy colors, and the old-school televisions sprawled on some dirty carpet. Watch the live performance above.

“Rose-Colored Boy” is featured on Paramore’s recently released record, After Laughter. Since the album’s release last year, the band has been touring behind it nonstop. This summer, they will hit the touring circuit for Tour 5 alongside Foster the People. The upcoming trek will kick off on June 12 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Fla. and conclude a month and a half later on July 24 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. The complete tour schedule for Tour 5 can be found here.

Watch Weezer Perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’


Last week, Weezer gave their fans some of the best news when they revealed that they would in fact be releasing a new album later this year. They added onto the good news when they premiered their third single off the album, “King of the World” and then confirmed a co-headlining tour with Panic! at the Disco in the summer. During a late night appearance on Tuesday evening (Jan. 19), the California group showed those watching the show on TV just what to expect during the upcoming summer tour.

Taking to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the band performed lead single, “Thank God for Girls” and their second single, “Do You Wanna Get High?” off of their upcoming new album, The White Album. Check out both videos of the live performances below.

Weezer’s upcoming self-titled album is set to be released on April 1. For those who are confused about the title, the new record will officially be a self-titled. Since the band has previously released two other self-titled records, they have become known as the color of the physical album. Their first self-titled was 1994’s The Blue Album which gave us hits like “Buddy Holly,” “Undone – The Sweater Song,” and “Say It Ain’t So.” Then, in 2001′ they released The Green Album which gave us songs like “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun.” And now, in 2016, we will be getting The White Album, not to be mistaken for the Beatles’ album of the same name.

Weezer’s last studio album was 2014’s Everything Will Be Alright in the End.

Coldplay Perform “Adventure of a Lifetime” Live


A couple of hours after they unveiled their brand new single, “Adventure of a Lifetime,” Coldplay hit the live television show circuit to debut it. On Friday morning (Nov. 6), the United Kingdom-based band released the lead single off of A Head Full of Dreams and almost immediately headed to UK television show TGI Friday, to perform it life. Watch the performance of the new song below, but be warned, it looks like the performance was recored on someone’s phone from the television (or computer) screen.

A Head Full of Dreams is scheduled to be released on Friday, Dec. 4 through Parlophone/Atlantic Records. The new record which happens to be the group’s seventh studio album will reportedly feature artists like Noel Gallagher, Beyoncé, and Tove Lo. Since the confirmation of a new album was made at the end of 2014, frontman Chris Martin had teased that this would be the group’s swan song. As of now, there has been no mention whether or not it will, indeed, be the band’s last album.

A Head Full of Dreams is the follow-up to 2014’s Ghost Stories. In support of the new record, the band will reportedly hit the tour in 2016. Not tour dates have been mention but they did allude to it last week. Pre-orders for A Head Full of Dreams are currently available here digital media is sold as well as in the band’s website.

Gwen Stefani Debuts “Used to Love You” Live


It’s been a year since Gwen Stefani has released any new solo music, but this weekend, the singer changed that. While appearing in New York on Saturday (Oct. 17) for MasterCard’s Priceless Surprises series, the singer announced that she had a new song prepared; a track titled “Used to Love You.” During the show, Stefani hinted that the new song will be her upcoming new single; the follow-up to 2014’s “Spark the Fire.”

“I just want to share a song that I wrote recently. This song is really special. I think this is gonna be the new single,” Stefani told the audience. The ballad is believed to be about her split with soon-to-ex-husband, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. Taking to Twitter, she mirrored her speech from the show, teasing that “Used to Love You” will in fact become her new single.

Listen to the live debut of “Used to Love You” below.


Back in 2014, it was rumored Stefani would be releasing her third studio album in 2015. As the year is beginning to wrap up, nothing has been mentioned about that record that was reportedly produced by frequent collaborator and fellow The Voice judge, Pharrell Williams. Singles “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark the Fire” did premiere last year, but that was all.

But while there has been no new solo (or even No Doubt) music, it doesn’t mean that Stefani hasn’t been keeping busy. The No Doubt frontwoman is currently on the judges’ panel for this season of The Voice and has had a few songs on movie soundtracks. In January, Stefani and Williams worked on a track titled “Shine” for the Paddington film and in July, she joined forces with Eminem for a track titled “Kings Never Die” for the Southpaw soundtrack.

Stefani’s last album was 2006’s The Sweet Escape while No Doubt released their sixth studio album, Push and Shove, back in 2012.

The Story So Far Frontman Lets the Audience Know How He Feels About “Stage Seflies”


Doesn’t matter where you go whether it be the movies or the bathroom, you are bound to bump into someone who is too busy taking a picture of themselves to notice what’s happening on around them. Sadly, this is what the world has come to (remember selfie sticks were a huge seller last Christmas).

While a lot of musicians are on the fence about selfies because they take a part in the madness, there are some that have had enough of audience members spending more time trying to get the perfect band/selfie ration in their pictures to upload to social media than enjoying the music they are witnessing first hand.

One of those people not digging the “stage selfie” trend at concerts is The Story So Far frontman Parker Cannon.

During the band’s show at the Scout Bar in Houston on June 2, an audience member decided to get on stage to take a “stage selfie” during the band’s song “All Wrong.”

The audience member should have taken the song’s title as a warning because when Cannon saw what the guys was doing, he went over to the guy and kicked him. We’re guessing Cannon was trying to kick him off the stage, but that didn’t pan out.

Sadly, we’re sure the guy didn’t even noticed what had happened because he was too busy taking his own picture.

To see Cannon kick the guy, you will need to fast forward the video below to around the 12:27 point since it is the complete footage from that night’s show.

Watch Twenty One Pilots’ Full Bonnaroo Performance

If you weren’t aware, Bonnaroo took place over the weekend. Actually, it began on Thursday, June 11, and ended yesterday, June 14.

One of the many artists to take the stage at this year’s event in Manchester, TN was Twenty One Pilots.

For those in the Skeleton Clique who were not able to make it to Tennessee for the duo’s show or just weren’t near a computer when their live stream aired yesterday, the full performance is now available online.

Yes, over an hour of Twenty One Pilots performing songs from their albums including the recently released, and number one debuting album, Blurryface.

How about that for something to combat the Monday morning blues?

Check out the complete footage below.

Brand New Frontman Forgets Lyrics, Gives Hilarious Response


It happens.

Singers sometimes forget the lyrics to their own songs and sometimes need the help from their fans to remember a line or at least finish the song.

When you have a discography that span over a decade, it’s not surprising that a “brain fart” will happen. It’s normal.

But, Brand New frontman Jesse Lacey is not normal.

During the band’s show in Albuquerque earlier this week (April 21), Lacey and the rest of the band had started their song, “Millstone” from 2006’s The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. Things began okay with Lacey singing the lyrics until he couldn’t remember them. He began to mumble into the microphone and then all together stepped away.

Instead of letting the audience pick it up for him, he stopped the song, telling the crowd “I can’t remember, give me a second.”

He even asked someone in the crowd, “do you have the lyrics on your phone there, bro?”


Don’t worry, the band were able to restart the song from the beginning and it went off without a hitch.

Check out the footage below.
