Listen to Muse’s Cover of CHVRCHES

image

What happens when Muse decides to cover one of CHVRCHES’, songs? An interesting cover, to say the least.

During their appearance at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on Friday (Sept. 11), the band performed a cover of CHVRCHES’ song, “Lies” from their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe. Muse’s cover comes on the heels of Demi Lovato doing a similar thing with Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” and FKA Twigs who performed a cover of Sia’s “Elastic Heart.”

The audio of the “Lies” cover can be heard below.

In addition to the cover, the band also performed some tracks off of their new album Drones as well as hit songs, “Super Massive Black Hole” and “Knights of Cydonia.”

But if that wasn’t big enough news, the trio also confirmed details about their “Drones World Tour.” For anyone living in Europe, it was really good news while those living in North American (like us), it was more of a teaser.

Muse will begin their “Drones World Tour” on April 5 at the 3Arena Dublin in Dublin and wrap up on June 4 at the O2 Arena in Prague. As of now, no other tour dates have been released.

The group also revealed that for the first time ever, the stage set up will feature the band performing “in the round” from the middle of the arena(s) so that the concert-goers can get a full “360 audio/visual sensory experience.”

Really cool. For tickets or more information about the tour, head on over to Muse’s website.

New Motion City Soundtrack Song Leaks Online

A couple of days after announcing they would be releasing a new song sometime this week (tomorrow, June 16, to be exact), Motion City Soundtrack’s new song has leaked online.

The new song is titled “TKO” (as can be seen in the video) and can be heard below. Also keep in mind, if the track sounds a little funky, it’s because it’s a leaked version that was found on Tumblr. On the upside, it should hold you over until tomorrow when the official song is released.

Earlier this year, Motion City Soundtrack revealed they were planning on releasing a new album before the end of the year. But as we wait for that announcement which we hope comes soon, they have a couple of Vans Warped Tour dates coming up including the first day of the tour which will air live on Yahoo on Friday (June 19).

After that, they will be pack their bags once again and head back on the road for the second leg of their North American “Commit this to Memory Tenth Anniversary tour” before going to Australia to give their Austrian fans a little bit of CTTM love.

The Devil Wears Prada Share Record Store Day Contribution

Record Store Day was a few weeks ago, and now The Devil Wears Prada are giving fans the chance to hear their Record Store Day contribution, a song titled “South of the City.”

The band revealed they went into a recording studio back in 2014 in northwest Indiana to record the song. They spent four days holed up, but decided to film the experience and release it as a short documentary. The documentary is currently available for viewing and comes in at 36 minutes.

If you’re interested, it can be seen here while the stream of “South of the City” can be heard below.

The Devil Wears Prada recently revealed they had returned “home” to Rise Records to release their upcoming new album; they conceptual record, Space.

Currently, the Ohio band are in the middle of the second leg of their “Zombie 5 Tour” in honor of the record’s fifth anniversary. Secret and Sleepwave are currently on the road with them.

After the “Zombie 5 Tour” wraps up, they’ll take a quick break and then head out on this year’s Rockstar Mayhem Festival alongside Slayer and HellYeah.

Tom DeLonge Releases “The Invisible Parade”

After promising to give fans the latest new song from his upcoming solo album, Tom DeLonge has come through.

The former Blink-182 frontman had promised fans during the day that his new track titled “The Invisible Parade” would be released by night’s end yesterday, but sadly, it was pushed back until today. We completely understand from a super busy guy like DeLonge.

Check out the acoustic and somber second “single” from To the Stars…Demos, Odds, and Ends below.

Taking to Instagram (his favorite form of communicating with his audience, we’re sure), DeLonge posted a quick message about who the song was written for.

To the Star…Demos, Odds, and Ends will be released on April 20 through DeLonge’s label. According to previous posts about the album, new songs will be coming our way every week.

Tom DeLonge Streams First Solo Track

image

It’s been a week since Tom DeLonge revealed he would be releasing a solo album which would feature his Blink-182 demos as well as some “odds and ends” he had put away.

As part of his plan, DeLonge will be releasing new songs from the album, To the Stars … Demos, Odds and Ends., every Monday. Today marks the first Monday of his schedule and also introduces us to his first official solo song (not affiliated with Angels and Airwaves, Boxcar Racer, or any of his side project), “New World.”

Sadly, there’s no word on whether this song was a Blink demo or an “odds and ends.”

Check out the track below.

Pre-orders for To the Stars have already begun on DeLonge’s website. Those who do pre-order the album will get a new track every Monday. As for the rest of us, the complete tracklist for the album will not be made public until March 16 with the actual album being released on April 21.

Listen to Senses Fail Cover Man Overboard

The Senses Fail/ Man Overboard split is set to be released at the beginning of next month and this week, Senses Fail have released their other contribution to the record; their cover of Man Overboard.

As part of the joint effort, both bands decided to submit one original song and a cover from the other’s discography. While Man Overboard chose to cover Senses Fail’s “You’re Cute When You Scream” from Let it Enfold You, Senses Fail decided to cover a song from Man Overboard’s debut record, the title track “Real Talk.”

Check out Senses Fail’s cover below.

The 7″ split will be released on March 3 through each group’s respected record label (Pure Noise Records for Senses Fail and Rise Records for Man Overboard).

Pre-orders are currently available for those wanting to get their hands on the LP and don’t forget to catch both bands this Spring as they head out on tour with Bayside on their “15th Birthday Tour” beginning in early March.

Ray Toro Releases Song to Honor Leelah Alcorn

image

Former My Chemical Romance guitarist Ray Toro has released another new song from his solo project.
The new song is titled, “For the Lost and Brave.”

Along with the song, Toro released a message on his website about the song in which he reveals he had held back releasing the song on countless occasions, but decided to release it now that he released to honor of 17-year-old transgender teenager, Leelah Alcorn, after she committed suicide this past Sunday.

Read his statement below.

“I wrote this song about a year ago, waiting to release it on my record when it was complete. There have been many times that I’ve almost put it out, but have always found a reason to hold it back. But lately there seems to be so much hate and misunderstanding in this world.

As I’m sure many of you felt after reading the news of young Leelah Alcorn taking her own life, my heart sank. I felt sick. Yet another young life gone because of not being heard, not being understood, and not being unconditionally loved for who they truly were. After hearing her story, and reading her final Tumblr post, I finally felt it was time to share the song.

It is time we learn to accept each other for who we truly are. Being seen, heard, and truly loved as our authentic selves is something we all want, and something we all deserve.”

For those interested in an update on Leelah’s story, a private burial was reportedly held for her today because her spineless jellyfish parents were scared of all the backlash they have received from the public after her suicide and even more so after her mother went on national television and continued to refer to her by not only her given name but also using male pronouns.

As for Toro, this will be the third song he has released since announcing his plans to become a solo artist back in August.

Get Some “Sexual Healing” from Jimmy Fallon and Steve Carell

image

Jimmy Fallon and his Ragtime Gals are back again and this time, the barbershop quartet gave viewers their own cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

But the best part of the cover? Three seconds into the song, Steven Carell pops out of nowhere to joining forces with the already singing quartet which would now make them a quintet, right?

Anyways, check out the video below.

The clean-cut barbershop group give a nice clean to it, almost making you forget how the song is about “sexual healing”; almost.
