A Perfect Circle Streaming New Song 'The Doomed'

A Perfect Circle fans woke to a nice surprise Tuesday morning (October 17th) with the band sharing an online stream of a brand new song called "The Doomed".

The track is the first music the band has revealed from their forthcoming long awaited studio album which is being produced by Dave Sardy. The group expects to release the effort next year.

Frontman Maynard James Keenan had this to say, "Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe. A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder."

Billy Howerdel added, "Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment," added . "We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we're on." Stream the song here.

Robert Plant Addresses Led Zeppelin Reunion Idea

(hennemusic) Robert Plant is ruling out any chances of a Led Zeppelin reunion as he works to promote his newly-released album, "Carry Fire", the legendary frontman revealed in a new interview.

"You can't ever really go back," Plant tells the Daily Telegraph. "It's tough enough repeating yourself with something that's a year old, never mind 49 years old. I've got to keep moving."

Plant has repeatedly dismissed talk of a Led Zeppelin reunion since their one-off performance at the December 10, 2007 concert at London's O2 Arena tribute concert for friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

The rare live set, which saw Jason Bonham behind the drums in place of his late father John, was released in 2012 as "Celebration Day." These days, Plant is focused on "Carry Fire", which he recorded with his touring band the Sensational Space Shifters. Read more here.

Seger version of Leonard Cohen's "Democracy" and his already released take on Lou Reed's "Busload of Faith," are included. Seger altered Reed's lyrics to include a current political statement. Read more and see the tracklisting here.

Singled Out: Wyves

Unapologetic rock & rollers Wyves just released their new single "Bitch Has Got Problems" and to celebrate we asked vocalist and guitarist Corey Gloden to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

"Bitch Has Got Problems" is Wyves's ode to madness and the human void. Our 2 chord ballad with a smile and a hand grenade. I began writing "Bitch" in the summer of 2007. I was visiting my family in my hometown of Mason, MI. This trip was in the middle of a period where I was going through a series of tumultuous relationships, bandmates leaving, close family and friends passing, and I was pathetically desperate for an escape and release. One night after an all nighter and walking through the woods for hours with my guitar, I just kept strumming E major to C# minor. When the sun started to rise, I looked up into it and started screaming whatever was on the top of my head at the time. I went inside, fell asleep. When I was hanging with my family later, my Dad said to me, "I heard you singing in the back yard this morning. Something about the bitch having problems. Are you okay?"
Me:"Not sure"
Dad: "Well, you definitely have something there. Is that a new one?"
Me: "It is now. I don't know what all I was singing"
Dad: "Figure it out"

I started playing it out before it was written. At house parties, open mics, random shows, to strangers in different cities and scenes, anywhere. I would make up lyrics on the spot everytime. It acted more as an imaginary friend and a roaddog, rather than just a poem with a set structure. By doing this I learned what works, and the song began to get a life of it's own within multiple crowds. Over time, I added slight references to music from my childhood like the opening guitar lick which is a nod to the Golden Girls theme song. The rhythm and changing vocal melodies are a nod to my cassette recordings I made of old Wolf Man Jack radio segments and all the killer music from his show that would re-air on Fridays.

When I got with Wyves, I still had not recorded it. We made a decision to hold on releasing it right away, and Evan Knisely, Brenden McBride, Nick Sterling, and I worked on creating a structure and feel that captures the live performances with the help of Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Studios, with Cassidy Hilgers on backing vocals and Kyle Scarbourough on Sax.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the band right here!

Cash's daughter, Cindy Cash, cut the ribbon at the event and gave an emotional speech, reports The Sacramento Bee. "If my dad could see all of you people here, 14 years after he died, he would say, 'Why me? Why did everyone do this for me?'"Cash said.

Hollywood Undead Release 'We Own The Night' Video

Hollywood Undead have released a brand new video for their single "We Own The Night". The song comes from their forthcoming album "Five" which will be released on October 27th.

Johnny 3 Tears had this to say about the band's forthcoming fifth studio effort, "We're five brothers, and this is our fifth record. Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power.

"When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to 'No. 5' from our first album, because it was our fifth song.

"Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us." Watch the video here.

Courtney Love Warned About Harvey Weinstein Back In 2005

(Radio.com) As a deluge of sexual assault and harassment allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein come to light, footage has surfaced of Courtney Love sounding the alarm way back in 2005.

The Hole frontwoman--who's enjoyed a successful, intermittent acting career--was asked what advice she'd give young women starting out in entertainment. "I'll get libeled if I say it," she said. "If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons, don't go."

On Saturday (Oct 14), Love Tweeted about the recently rediscovered video interview. "Although I wasn't one of his victims, I was eternally banned by [talent agency] CAA for speaking out against #HarveyWeinstein," she wrote.

Love made the initial comment on the red carpet of Comedy Central's Roast of Pamela Anderson, in which Love was one of the roasters. As high-profile accusers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie came forward, the video gained traction on social media. Watch the clip here.

Radiohead Rock Hall Chances Get Roasted On Greg Gutfeld Show

(Radio.com) Fox News' comedic weekend program Greg Gutfeld Show's correspondent Kat Timpf broke down the Radiohead's chances to be chosen among the next class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Timpf thinks they're a shoo-in, since in her estimation, the institution is "about fame, and not talent." The correspondent elaborated on her thoughts, oversharing along the way with quite a bit to unpack.

"I don't even like them," Timpf said of Thom Yorke and company, "but the kind of guys that I like have to be three things: strange, malnourished, and sad. Those guys always like Radiohead, so I've been having to pretend to like Radiohead for years to get these men, even though the music is just elaborate moaning and whining for ringtone sounds. You know what, if that's not fame and power that will get me to do that for someone else, then I don't know what is." Watch it here.
