Frank Iero and the Future Violents add west coast shows

If you live on the west coast and thought you weren’t going to get the chance to see Frank Iero and the Future Violents on tour, then today is your lucky day. On Friday (April 19), the former My Chemical Romance guitarist and his new band announced new tour dates for later this summer.

The new stops will find the group performing at venues on the west coast from late-July through mid-August. The second leg of their headlining tour begins on July 23 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland and concludes a few weeks later on Aug. 10 at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Last month, the group unveiled their first set of headlining tour dates for the summer months. The first part of the summer jaunt begins on May 29 at the Foundry in Philadelphia and concludes a month later on June 22 at Rock Off Cruise in New York.

The band also confirmed that Reggie and the Full Effect will open for them during the east coast shows while Geoff Rickly of Thursday will take over the supporting act position during the west coast stops of the tour.

In between both legs of the tour, the group will appear at several music festivals. Those shows include the Atlantic City edition of the Vans Warped Tour (June 29), Rock for People in Czechia (July 5), 2000 Trees in the United Kingdom (July 13), Great South Bay Music Festival in New York (July 18), and the California stop of the Vans Warped Tour (July 21).

The new shows are in support of the group’s upcoming studio album. Barriers is due out May 31 through UNFD. Pre-orders for the new record can be found here. Barriers was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago and is the follow-up to Iero’s 2016 release, Parachutes.

Iero and company are currently on the road with Taking Back Sunday for the latter’s Twenty tour dates.

Hollywood Vampires announce springtime release of ‘Rise,’ share new song

The Hollywood Vampires are about to come out of hiding to give us all a brand new album. On Thursday (April 18), the Alice Cooper/Joe Perry/Johnny Depp supergroup announced plans to unleash their sophomore album later this spring. Titled Rise, the new record is due out June 21 through earMUSIC.

Unlike their debut album, this record will mostly feature original material written by the act. Sticking to their “original mission,” Hollywood Vampires’ upcoming release will feature three covers; David Bowie’s “Heroes,” Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” and Johnny Thunder’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory.”

The 16-track album was produced by longtime live Hollywood Vampires guitarist Tommy Henriksen.

Rise is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of,” explains Alice Cooper.

“I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn’t try to change any songs to be more ‘Alice-like.’ Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.”

Joe Perry adds: “Rise came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of. I can’t wait to perform some of these tunes live for our fans.”

Pre-orders for Rise are currently available on the band’s website where they are offering several bundles.

In addition to the new album announcement, Hollywood Vampires also released the record’s first single, “Who’s Laughing Now.” Watch the lyrics video for the new song above.

Before the album’s June release, the group will hit the touring circuit for a couple of shows in May. The springtime outing begins on May 10 at the Joint in Las Vegas and concludes a week later on May 18 at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. Those dates can be found here.

Dropkick Murphys announce fall tour dates with Clutch, Hatebreed

The Dropkick Murphys are hitting the road this fall and taking some of their friends for the ride. On Tuesday (April 16), the Boston-based band announced a United States-centric tour for later this year. The upcoming trek will find the act performing at venues across the country throughout September and October.

The 18-stop jaunt will invade several major cities including Raleigh, Charlotte, Birmingham, Detroit, St. Paul, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and more. The tour begins on Sept. 20 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts and concludes almost a month later on Oct. 15 at the WAMU Theater in Seattle.

The six-pieces impending tour schedule also includes two previously confirmed music festival appearances; Sea.Hear.Now Festival on Sept. 22 in Asbury Park, New Jersey and Louder than Life on Sept. 28 in Louisville.

Clutch and Hatebreed are the tour’s direct supporting acts while Amigo the Devil and Russ Rankin of Good Riddance will perform on select dates.

“This fall we’re hitting the road with Clutch and special guests Hatebreed, Amigo the Devil, and Russ Rankin of Good Riddance,” the band posted alongside the official flyer for the upcoming trek. Watch the band’s tour announcement video above.

The fall tour is in support of the Dropkick Murphy’s latest studio release, 2017’s 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory. The album, the group’s ninth studio effort, debuted at the number eight spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

Beck announces ‘Hyperspace,’ shares Pharrell-produced new track

Surprise! Beck has a brand new album coming out later this year. On Monday (April 15), the musician unveiled plans to release his 14th studio effort. Titled Hyperspace, the new record will be released through Capitol Records, but there’s one catch; the release date is a secret.

According to a press statement, the record will be out “at an as yet undetermined point in the space time continuum.” With a name like “Hyperspace,” the musician’s statement makes sense.

Hyperspace is the follow-up to Beck’s 2017, Grammy Award-winning album, Colors.

While the release date is a mystery, it may be safe to assume that it will see a summertime release date. Last month, Beck announced plans to embark on a co-headlining summer tour with Cage the Elephant, so what better time than then to release some new tunes.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the musician also released the album’s lead single, “Saw Lightning.” The new track finds Beck teaming up with Pharrell Williams for the funky new cut. Williams co-wrote, co-produced, and contributed “drums, keyboards, and mumbles” for the new song.

Listen to “Saw Lightning” above.

Beck has been quite stealthy this year when it comes to new music. Earlier this year, he released “Tarantula” from the Music Inspired by the Film ROMA album, “Super Cool” with Robyn and the Lonely Island which was featured on The Lego Movie 2 soundtrack, and most recently his collaboration with soon-to-be tour mates Cage the Elephant for “Night Running.”

In support of Hyperspace, Beck will hit the road with Cage the Elephant for their joint summer tour. The “Night Running” tour begins on July 11 at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington and concludes about a month and a half later on Aug. 30 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The full list of tour dates can be found here.

Anberlin announce first United States tour in five years

Anberlin may have bowed out a few years ago, but now it looks like they’re getting the band back together. On Tuesday (April 9), the Florida-founded act announced plans to reassemble and hit the United States touring circuit during the summer.

The 22-stop outing will find the band performing at venues across the country throughout June and July. The tour will include shows in major markets such as Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Denver, New York, Philadelphia, and more.

The summer tour begins on June 10 at the House of Blues in Dallas and concludes a month later on July 14 at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta.

Surprisingly, the group did not include a single Florida stop on the upcoming itinerary. For fans living in the band’s home state, this omission may come as a bit of a shock considering Anberlin’s final shows took place in Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg, and Orlando, their quasi-hometown (they’re from Winter Haven).

“Hello US friends! We couldn’t be more excited to finally be able to announce our summer 209 tour dates,” the band posted on Twitter.

“After nearly 5 years away, we have missed everyone out there, so we are coming back out to see you all!”

Tickets and VIP packages go on sale this Friday, April  12, at 10 a.m. local time.

Anberlin’s summer 2019 tour marks the group’s first US-centric outing since their “final tour” in 2014. The summer tour announcement comes a few weeks after the group revealed they were heading to Australia for their first post-breakup tour.

The band first reunited in December 2018 to play a hometown gig with another recently reassembled act, Underoath. At the time, it looked like it was going to be a one-off show, but it seems like there may be an Anberlin resurrection in the future. Maybe that even means a follow-up to 2014’s Lowborn.

The full list of tour dates can be found below.

The Darkness to release ‘Easter is Cancelled’ in October

The Darkness is ready to take on “power-hungry clowns” and save us from despair, at least according to their latest video post on Twitter. On Thursday (April 4), the British band formally announced the release of their new studio effort in the same over-the-top clip. Dubbed Easter is Cancelled, the new album is due out Oct. 4 through Cooking Vinyl Records.

Pre-orders for the upcoming album are currently available on the band’s website. Easter is Cancelled is the follow-up to 2017’s Pinewood Smile.

The album’s confirmation comes after the band posted their quasi-call to arms video on the social media platform. The clip finds frontman Justin Hawkins making a grand speech about the dark times we are currently in, while also inquiring about the whereabouts of the heroes we need and deserve.

As the speech continues, Hawkins reveals that the members of the Darkness are in fact those tights-wearing heroes ready to fight with every weapon in their arsenal (the guitar axe, the drum hammer, the bejeweled codpiece, and the banshee wail of righteous anger).

The video ends with the singer saying: “This is the first day in our new world and Easter is cancelled. Let us begin. Death or glory, my friends. Which will it be?” The video transitions from the band standing on the green field to the forthcoming album’s cover art.

In a message to fans, the act also revealed plans to embark on a United Kingdom/European tour. Those dates will reportedly be unveiled next week.

Fans who pre-order the album will gain special pre-sale access to tickets for that upcoming tour. A link will be emailed to those who pre-order the album on Tuesday, April 9, at 9 a.m. local time. Keep in mind; the pre-sale codes are only for the band’s forthcoming UK tour.

Celine Dion to take ‘Courage’ on the road through 2020

Our hearts may go on, but Celine Dion is making sure that we never forget where it all started. On Thursday (April 3), the Canadian singer announced plans to embark on a massive world tour that will find her performing across the globe through 2020. Dubbed the “Courage” world tour, Dion revealed her first set of tour dates which include stops in the United States and Canada.

The North American leg of the gigantic outing kicks off with a two-night engagement at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City on Sept. 18 and Sept. 20. The first part of the North American leg concludes on Dec. 13 at the TD Garden in Boston. After a few weeks off for the holidays, the tour will resume on Jan. 8, 2020, at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. and ends three-and-a-half months later on April 27, 2020, at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg.

“I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see my show in Las Vegas for so many years, and now I get the chance to create a brand new show and bring it to them in North America, and around the world,” the singer said in a statement. “I’m very excited about this tour.”

General ticket sales for Dion’s shows through her stop at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh begin next Friday, April 12. Pre-sales for TeamCeline members and American Express Cardmembers begin Monday, April 8. All tickets purchased for the “Courage” world tour comes with a copy of Dion’s forthcoming English album, Courage. Though the musician has yet to confirm a release date for the record, she did say that it will be released in “November.”

The “Courage” world tour marks Dion’s first cross-country excursion in a decade. The North American outing begins several months after Dion’s concludes her long-running Las Vegas residency.

The Used, Thrice, Circa Survive to headline inaugural Disrupt Festival

DF_HeaderThis year may mark the first year that punk, pop-punk, and emo kids may not have the Vans Warped Tour, but it looks like a new music festival is ready to take over the summertime void.

Boasting acts like The Used, Circa Survive, Sum 41, and Thrice as headliners, the cross-country trek will take over North America during June and July.
