Original— Jan. 10, 2:08 p.m. ET

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.

Tonight Alive drops new song featuring Lynn Gunn

With a week left until the release of their impending new album, Tonight Alive has released yet another new song from the record. On Thursday (Jan. 4), the Australian band made their way to Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to debut “Disappear.” The new song features guest vocals by PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn. A short time after unleashing the song on the radio, Tonight Alive unveiled the official music video for the new tune.

The clip finds Tonight Alive frontwoman Jenna McDougall with earbuds in her ears as she walks and rides a subway around a town aimlessly. As she walks around the city, she begins to run into the same three people repeatedly. Eventually, she decides to run away with one of her followers only for the woman to disappear, leaving her in the middle of a street wondering what happened. Watch the music video for “Disappear” above.

“‘Disappear’ is a song about the escapist inside all of us. As you can expect from Tonight Alive, the lyrics discuss freedom, but this time with a flavor of anonymity and detachment,” begins McDougall. “‘Disappear’ was written with the intention of sounding neither like PVRIS or Tonight Alive, and aimed to capture the sonic imagery of a long straight highway out of your comfort zone.”

“Disappear” will join previously released tracks “Crack My Heart” and “Temple” on the band’s upcoming fourth studio album, Underworld. Underworld is set to be released on Jan. 12 through Hopeless Records. Underworld will mark the group’s first album to be released through Hopeless Records as opposed to their longtime home of Fearless Records.

In support of Underworld’s release, Tonight Alive will hit the road alongside Silverstein later this month. “The Get Free Tour” will kick off on Jan. 19 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio and wrap up about a month-and-a-half later on March 1 at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. To see the complete itinerary for the “Get Free Tour,” head on over here.

A Perfect Circle welcomes the new year with new song

This past weekend, A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan teased fans on social media by telling them to have their “headphones ready Tuesday morning” because there could be a possibility of a “New Year’s treat.” On Tuesday (Jan. 2), as promised, the California-founded supergroup unleashed a brand new song titled “Disillusioned.” Listen to the new, almost-six-minute song above.

“Disillusioned” will join previously released single “The Doomed” on A Perfect Circle’s much-anticipated fourth album. Back in October of 2017, the five-piece officially unveiled “The Doomed”; their first new song in almost four years. Shortly after unveiling the audio for the new song, the band returned with its black-and-white video.

The upcoming new album, which has yet to formally get a release date or a title, will be the group’s first new record in 14 years. Even though the record has yet to be given an official release date, speculations have begun that the album will see a tentative release time frame of the second quarter of 2018. A Perfect Circle’s last studio album was 2004’s eMOTIVe.

In support of the still-not-titled new album, the group will hit the road beginning this spring. The upcoming tour engagements will kick off with the band’s appearance at the inaugural Los Rageous Music Festival in Las Vegas.

Panic! at the Disco celebrate the holidays with new song

With a handful of days left before Christmas officially arrives, Panic! at the Disco is giving their loyal fan base an early gift. On Wednesday (Dec. 20), the Las Vegas-founded band unleashed a brand new, standalone Christmas jam named “Feels Like Christmas.” The barely three-minute-long song takes cues from a lot of Christmas tunes which at this point in the holiday season we either completely love or hate it to the point that our radio may be finding its way out the window. Listen to “Feels Like Christmas” above.

In a post on Instagram, the frontman Brendon Urie wrote a letter to fans, thanking them for all the support and love they have continuously showed the group throughout 2017.

“Thank you all for making this year my favorite so far,” begins the singer’s Instagram post. “Through the hard times and the beautiful moments, I’m glad we’re always there to lift each other up. I’m so excited for the new year and what’s to come. So to end this year right, here’s a little holiday jam I wrote for you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.”

“Feels Like Christmas” is a standalone, holiday single/gift to fans and will not be featured on any upcoming Panic! at the Disco album. A free download of the new tune can be found on Fueled By Ramen’s website here.

Last week, Panic! at the Disco released All My Friends We’re Glorious; their second live album (their first was 2008’s …Live in Chicago). The 21-track album was recorded during the band’s “Death of a Bachelor” tour which found the group touring North American from February of 2017 to April of 2017.

Tonight Alive drops music video for ‘Crack My Heart’

With a month left until the release of their fourth studio album, Tonight Alive has gifted fans another new song from the upcoming album. On Monday (Dec. 11), the Australian band released the music video for their latest track “Crack My Heart.” In a press release, vocalist Jenna McDougall explained the concept behind the brand new song.

“The concept of cracking the heart is to allow the precious, vulnerable self to come through and be free. The painful, yet liberating experience involves the emotional and energetic decalcification of the hardened heart,” she begins.

“The lyrics follow my conversation with a ‘winged man,’ a conscious figure, who offers space and safety to do my healing with. In my experience, when you are seen as your authentic self by another, you come to recognize your reflection more accurately and lovingly. Crack My Heart is a tribute to the way that love from the divine masculine elevates and holds space for the divine feminine to flourish.”

Watch the music video for “Crack My Heart” above.

“Crack My Heart” will join previously released single “Temple” on the band’s impending new album, Underworld. Underworld is set to be released on Jan. 12 through Hopeless Records. Underworld will mark the group’s first album to be released through Hopeless Records. Back in April, the band announced they had left their longtime home of Fearless Records for Hopeless for the new album.

In support of Underworld‘s release, Tonight Alive previously announced plans to hit the road in early 2018 with Silverstein. “The Get Free Tour” will kick off on Jan. 19 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio and wrap up about a month-and-a-half later on March 1 at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Pre-orders for If There is Light, It Will Find You are currently available on the band’s website hereIf There is Light, It Will Find You is the follow-up to 2015’s Pull the Thorns from Your Heart.

Fall Out Boy celebrate Día de los Muertos in new music video

After spending the last week teasing fans about their brand new music video, Fall Out Boy has followed through and released the clip. On Wednesday (Nov. 15), the Chicago-founded band unleashed their Día de los Muertos-inspired music video for “Hold Me Tight or Don’t.”

The three-and-a-half minute clip finds the four-piece performing in the middle of a Día de los Muertos celebration. The four-piece is not only seen surrounded by beautifully dressed attendees, but also participating and interacting with the people. For those not familiar with Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), it is not the Mexican equivalent of Halloween as many believe it to be. Instead, the multi-day holiday (it takes place on Nov. 1 and 2) focuses on family and friends gathering to pray for and remember those who have died and help support their spiritual journey.

Watch Fall Out Boy’s music video for “Hold Me Tight or Don’t” above.

During a recent show in Dallas, Fall Out Boy all but confirmed the release of the Brendan Walter and Mel Soria-directed music video. The band was photographed performing on platform that was decorated as a marquee and the letters FOB at the top. On the marquee, the location and date was printed at the top while the date “11/15” and “HLD ME TGHT OR DNT” was printed below that.

Then, on Tuesday (Nov. 14), the band posted “On Wednesday, we’ll honor the dead. HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON’T midnight ET worldwide” confirming what fans had speculated when the image from the Dallas show was posted.

“Hold Me Tight or Don’t” will join previously released song “The Last of the Real Ones,” “Young and Menace,” and “Champion” on Fall Out Boy’s upcoming new album MANIA. Originally scheduled to be released on Sept. 15, 2017, Fall Out Boy recently confirmed that their seventh studio album will see a release date of Jan. 19, 2018. Pre-orders for MANIA are currently available on the band’s website here.
