With the release of their fourth studio album just a week away, Halestorm have returned with one more new song to hold fans over until then. On Friday (July 20), the Pennsylvania-founded band released the third single off the impending record; a track titled “Do Not Disturb.” If the new jam seems to sounds a little raunchy then you are definitely onto something. As per frontwoman Lzzy Hale, the song is based on a true story and was not intended to become a Halestorm song.

“With only a few days to go before our album Vicious gets unleashed, we wanted to share one more song with you,” begins an email blast sent out to fans. “‘Do Not Disturb,’ is one of my favorite songs we wrote for this album. It is based on a true story (…so yes this actually happened), and it is not for the faint of heart. So, get yourself into a comfortable position, turn your headphones up…and Enjoy!”

Listen to “Do Not Disturb” above.

“Do Not Disturb” will join previously released songs “Uncomfortable” and “Black Vultures” on Vicious. Vicious is due out July 27 via Atlantic Records.

Alkaline Trio return with new single ‘Blackbird’

Back in mid June, Alkaline Trio announced plans to hit the road during the months of August and October making some wonder if this meant new tunes from the group was on the horizon. On Thursday (July 19), the California-founded band confirmed the release of their ninth studio album. Titled Is This Thing Cursed?, the impending release is due out Aug. 31 through Epitaph Records.

Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website here.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the band also released the record’s lead single, “Blackbird.” Listen to the three-and-a-half-minute song above.

Is This Thing Cursed? is the follow-up to 2013’s My Shame is True.

News of the new album comes months after bassist Dan Andriano hinted at new music in an interview. During the chat that took place in January of this year, the musician teased that the group was not done making new music.

“There’s not an inch of me that feels like we’re done making music, or we’re done making new stuff.” he explains. “I wanna be a band that people want to hear new stuff from. Because I feel like I’m still in a band that wants to write good, new music.”

In addition to the new album and its single, the band previously announced plans to hit the road during the months of August and October. The upcoming excursion will be split into two legs; the first leg will take place in August while the second will take place in October. The first leg of the tour will kick off on Aug. 3 at the Bomb Factory in Dallas and wrap up on Aug. 26 at the House of Blues in Orlando.

After a month or so away from the North American touring circuit, Alkaline Trio will resume their trek on Oct. 04 at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California. The trek will then conclude a few weeks later on Oct. 18 at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, California. Garage rock outfit PANGEA will open for Alkaline Trio during the full tour.

Watch Muse journey to the last movie rental store in ‘Something Human’

It’s been six months since Muse last released a new song, but when you’ve on the road touring nonstop for most of the year, it’s bound to happen. On Thursday (July 19), the United Kingdom-founded band fixed that by unleashed another 80s-tastic music video for their latest single “Something Human.” Described as “one man’s journey to return a VHS before he becomes a werewolf,” the music video pretty much lives up to that description.

The four-and-a-half-minute clip begins with a shot of a city limits sign with the word “infected” scrawled across it in bright red ink while a brightly lit skull sits at the base of the sign. The camera zooms passed the sign to a sports car and frontman Matt Bellamy. The viewer watches as Bellamy stands in the middle of a deserted road wearing what looks to be virtual reality headset as the sun rises in front of him.

The camera shifts to an item on the hood of the car which looks like a cross between a cassette player and VCR. Bellamy removes a VHS from the player (it’s titled “Simulation Theory”) and places it in its case and begins his journey to return the video. Along the way, he encounters some cops  (played by his band mates Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard) who are relentless as they try to catch him.

While he manages to evade them by going into a wormhole, things do not look promising for the singer when the full moon appears and he turns into a werewolf just as he’s about to enter the video store.

“Something Human” was directed by Lance Drake who also directed the videos for both “Dig Down” and “Thought Contagion.” Watch the music video above.

In addition to the new song and its accompanying clip, Muse also announced that their eighth studio album will finally see a release time frame of November of 2018. “Something Human,” “Thought Contagion” and “Dig Down” are expected to appear on the upcoming album. The still-untitled record will be the follow-up to Muse’s 2016 release, Drones.

Ice Nine Kills bring ‘Friday the 13th’ to life in ‘Thank God It’s Friday’

When Ice Nine Kills said they were going to release a brand new music video on Friday the 13th, it was easy for fans to assume that the new clip would be highly influenced by the horror film franchise. Well, fans were not disappointed when the group took them to Camp Crystal Lake in the almost-ten-minute clip. On Friday (July 13), the Massachusetts-founded band debuted the music video for their latest single, “Thank God It’s Friday.”

The newly released clip picks up a short time after the video for “The American Nightmare.” The clip begins with a live news broadcast on a television screen. The reporter stands in front of what appears to be a sleep-away camp as he tell the harrowing details surrounding the death of seven camp counselors at a Texas camp.

The footage shifts from the screen to the inside of frontman Spencer Charnas’s psychiatrist’s office where the musician sits for his second session. Coincidentally (or maybe not), the singer recaps for the doctor what he and his band mates were up to while in San Antonio (trying to pee on the Alamo alla Ozzy, apparently).

Charnas continues to tell the shrink that his nightmares had returned once the band began touring again. When the psychiatrist asks whether it’s the same dream, Charnas tell him that everything had changed. To begin, he and his band mates were now in the dreams. Secondly, the nightmares now include both the psychiatrist’s receptionist and his colleague. Thirdly, the whole setting had changed from a small town to a camp where everyone is a camp counselor.

Charnas describes the nightmare to the shrink, making sure to include how it always begins with him hearing the voices of dead counselors from the past warning them that death is coming. As the band begins to play the new tune in the middle of a dark forest, the viewer watches as they recreate Friday the 13th.

The video is filled with nods to the horror film including their version of Camp Crystal Lake, people getting easily murdered, half-naked co-eds running in the woods, and no-so-happy ending for most of the camp counselors. Oh yeah, and you cannot forget the Pamela Voorhees voice over where she accuses the counselors of being the reason her son is dead.

Once the performance portion of the video ends, the viewer watches as Charnas’ shrink tries to get to the root of the nightmares. Charnas, for his part, tries to avoid going deeper by citing that the hour is almost over. While Charnas disappears at the end of his session, his psychiatrist still insistently tells his colleague that he thinks his patient is a serial killer. Little does he know, Charnas is spying on him from across the street. Talk about creepy.

Watch the music video for “Thank God It’s Friday” above.

“Thank God It’s Friday” will join “The American Nightmare” on Ice Nine Kills’ upcoming new album, The Silver Scream. The new album, the band’s fifth studio record, is set to be released on Oct. 5 through Fearless Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available here.

In support of the new songs, the four-piece is currently on the final Vans Warped Tour. Those tour dates can be found here.

Watch: Good Charlotte drop music video for ‘Shadowboxer’

It’s been a few months since Good Charlotte dropped the music video for their new album’s lead single, “Actual Pain,” but now, it looks like the band is ready to treat fans to another new tune. On Friday (July 13), the Baltimore-founded band celebrated the beginning of the weekend by unleashing another new song from their forthcoming record. Titled “Shadowboxer,” the new song tackles the issue of mental health and the pesky voices that never leave you alone.

The three-minute music video finds the group performing in what looks to be a depleted and abandoned house with furniture covered in clothes and spider webs everywhere. Between the footage of the band performing, the viewer watches as several people look at their reflections in light and bright room, but as soon as those pesky voices return, they are transported to the abandoned house where dark versions of themselves are reflected in the mirror. Watch the complete music video for “Shadowboxer” above.

“Shadowboxer” will join lead single “Actual Pain” on Good Charlotte’s seventh studio album, Generation RXGeneration RX is due out Sept. 14 through the band’s newly minted partnership with BMG and their record label imprint, MDDN.

In addition to the music video for the new song, the group revealed that they will headline a benefit concert for the victims of last month’s Capital Gazette shooting. While the festival is still in the early stages, the show will take place on Saturday, July 28, in Annapolis, Maryland. As of now, Good Charlotte are the only musical act on the bill.

“I don’t know what we can bring to it, other than we just want to be involved in supporting the city,” Benji Madden said in an interview with the Capital Gazette.

“Obviously, we’re all shocked [from the shooting]. We’re all kind of speechless. These are moments when you really don’t know what to do to help.”

This news comes a couple of days after the band confirmed plans to hit the North American touring circuit during the fall months. The Generation RX North American tour will begin on Oct. 12 at the Open Air ACMX in Mexico City and conclude on Nov. 24 at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Generation RX is the follow-up to the band’s first post-hiatus album, 2016’s Youth Authority.

Twenty One Pilots announce new album, massive world tour

“What is Twenty One Pilots up to?” may have been the main question on fans’ minds over the course of the last few days when the group started posting cryptic messages. It all started when the duo changed their logo’s color scheme. The Blurryface blue, red, and gray color scheme was gone and replaced by a yellow and black version. Then, random posters with the new logo began to appear in random locations. Finally, things came to a head when the group posted a short, cryptic video on social media with an eye opening and some audio playing in the background.

Well, now it looks like fans finally got what they have been patiently waiting for; an answer. On Wednesday (July 11), the Ohio-founded act confirmed the release of their fifth studio album. Titled Trench, the new record is due out Oct. 5 through Fueled By Ramen.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the duo released a pair of new songs; the album’s lead single “Jumpsuit” and a second track titled “Nico and the Niners.” While “Nico and the Niners” is currently available for streaming here, the five-minute music video for “Jumpsuit” can be seen above.

Trench is the follow-up to Twenty One Pilots’ Grammy-award winning album, 2015’s Blurryface.

As if a new album and two new songs wasn’t enough, the band also announced plans to hit the road later this year. In support of Trench, the two-piece will embark on a massive excursion which will find them touring and performing around the world during the final months of 2018 and the early months of 2019. Dubbed the Bandito tour, the trek will begin on Oct. 16 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and conclude five months later on March 17, 2019 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal.

Fans who would like to obtain early access to tickets are encouraged to register on the band’s website here. Those who qualify will hear back from the band on Monday, July 16. Tickets for those verified fans will go on sale beginning next Tuesday, July 17, at 10 a.m. local time. The complete Bandito tour itinerary can be seen below.

Thrice announce ‘Palms,’ unleash music video for ‘The Grey’

Thrice announced their return in a big way last month when they revealed that not only had they left their home of Vagrant Records for Epitaph Records, but that they had some new music on the horizon. On Tuesday (July 10), the California-founded band made the new music news official when they confirmed the title and release date for their tenth studio album. Titled Palms, the new record is due out Sept. 14 through Epitaph Records. According to a press release, the new record was co-produced by Thrice and Eric Palmquist who also worked on the band’s last studio album, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere.

In addition to confirming the title and date for the record’s release, the band also unveiled the music video for the album’s lead single, “The Grey.” The music video, which was directed by Daniel Carberry, comes a couple of weeks after the band uploaded a post on social asking fans to join them for the music video’s shoot.

“TALENT NEEDED FOR NEW MUSIC VIDEO. We are looking for 18 to 60-year-old people for new music video shooting in LA,” the band posted at the end of June.

The five-minute, black-and-white music video —which takes place in what appears to be a mental hospital— can be seen above.

“The Grey” is the lead single off Palms. Palms is the follow-up to 2016’s To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere.

In support of the new set of tunes, Thrice previously announced plans to hit the United States touring circuit for a massive tour.

Listen: Real Friends drop ‘Unconditional Love’

Real Friends’ new album is just a couple of days away, but the band is giving fans another new song to hold them over until then. On Monday (July 9), the Illinois-founded band released the official third single from their upcoming record, Composure. Titled “Unconditional Love,” the new song can be streamed above.

“Unconditional Love” will join previously released tracks “From the Outside” and “Smiling on the Surface” on the group’s third studio album. Composure is due out this Friday, July 13, through Fearless Records. Pre-orders for the new record are still available on the band’s website here.

The record was produced by Mike Green whose resume includes The Aces, All Time Low, the Mowgli’s, and Paramore.

In a press statement released back in June, bassist Kyle Fasel revealed that the forthcoming ten-track album was the first time the band put a lot of time and effort into not only the individual tracks, but the album as a whole.

“We have never put this much time and effort into a record,” begins Fasel.

Composure is everything we’ve always come up short on. We focused more on melodies than ever before. We focused more on the overall emotional climate of each song than ever before. I truly think that every song on the record stands on its own. But when all the songs come together it creates our best effort to date.”

Composure is the follow-up to band’s 2016 release, The Home Inside My Head.

In support of the album’s release, the band is currently playing the final Vans Warped Tour.

Watch Charlie Puth party and find love in ‘The Way I Am’

With a handful of days left before his massive summer tour is slated to begin, Charlie Puth has returned with the music video for his latest single. On Monday (July 9), the New York-based singer unleashed the music video for his fourth Voicenotes single, “The Way I Am.”

The three-minute music video features Puth in different areas of a house as a party goes on around him. As he sits in different rooms including the living room, bathroom, backyard, and even the roof, his eyes do not leave a girl at the party. The clip was directed by Colin Tilley whose resume includes Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna. Watch the music video for “The Way I Am” above.

“The Way I Am” is the first track on Puth’s recently released record, Voicenotes. The record was released in May and reached the number four spot on the Billboard 200 chart and the number two spot on Billboard‘s Top Albums chart. The album, which has only been out a couple of months, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America only four days after its release.

In support of Voicenotes, Puth is set to hit the road this summer for the 17th annual Honda Civic Tour. Previously dubbed the Voicenotes tour, the excursion will find the singer, and supporting act  Hailee Steinfeld, traveling and performing for fans across the continent. The tour will kick off this Friday, July 13, at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston and conclude on Sept. 1 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.
