Iron Maiden Preview The Book Of Souls Concert Film And Live Album

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden are streaming footage of the track, "Speed Of Light", as a preview to the November 17 release of "The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter."

Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, it's one of 15 songs featured on the project, which was recorded during the group's world tour in support of 2015's "The Book Of Souls." The 2016-2017 trek saw Iron Maiden perform before more than two million fans in 39 countries across six continents.

"The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter" will be released physically in CD, deluxe CD and vinyl audio formats, with the concert film offered as a digital download available to purchase following its free online premiere - more details on the launch will follow soon.

Produced by Tony Newton and Iron Maiden founding member and bassist Steve Harris, the album is based on this year's set list and is a faithful record of the epic show, including six songs from "The Book Of Souls", the band's most recent studio album, alongside classics and fan favourites.

"We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world," explains Harris. "This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken."

"The release will be celebrated by an event that is a Maiden first: a free live streaming premiere of the concert film, as a thank you to our loyal fans around the world," adds manager Rod Smallwood. "We hope that the global Maiden community will all enjoy coming together to watch this special event online. Many of you will be in it as there is footage from a whole host of the places we played on this momentous tour." Watch the video here.

Foo Fighters Cover AC/DC Classic With Hives Frontman

(Radio.com) The Foo Fighters' new album Concrete and Gold is available now, so they've got plenty of new material to perform on tour…but the Foos still made time for an AC/DC cover during a concert in Stockholm. They played "Let There Be Rock" featuring Pelle Almqvist of The Hives, who earned a giddy introduction from Dave Grohl.

"This is how much I f—ing love this person and the band this person is in," Grohl said, revealing that he once dressed as Almqvist for Halloween. "This person happens to be from this city, so it's nice to be reunited with him. It's been a long time.

"Tonight I thought it would be a good idea if we did a song together, one that we've never played with him before, but I think it makes perfect sense for this show. I've always wanted to sing this song."

Check out fan footage of Foo Fighters tearing into AC/DC's catalog, which contains explicit language, here.

Linkin Park Release 'One More Light' Video

(Radio.com) Linkin Park have released a new music video for their song "One More Light". It is the title track to the band's most recent album and the new visual was an emotional for the band in the wake of frontman Chester Bennington's suicide.

"It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it," explained director (and band member) Joe Hahn in a press statement. "I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people who need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people who connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people who want that connection."

"One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end," Mike Shinoda shared in a press statement. "In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can't wait to see you again." Read more and watch the video here.

New Order Settle Legal Issues With Former Bassist Peter Hook

(Radio.com) Peter Hook's distinctive bass helped define the gothic sounds of Joy Division and the more synth-pop tones of its successor New Order. He left the band in 2007 and in 2011 former bandmates Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, and Gillian Gilbert set up a new company to manage their finances.

Hook filed a suit in 2015 alleging that the remaining members cut him out of $2.3 million in earnings. But New Order claimed that Hook had been adequately compensated.

Furthermore, they alleged that Hook improperly used New Order and Joy Division assets to promote his new musical venture, Peter Hook and the Light. After a years-long legal dispute, Hook and the members of New Order have reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount, according to representatives for the band.

"New Order announce that today, a full and final settlement has been reached in the long-running disputes with their former bassist Peter Hook," the band wrote in a statement on their official site. Read more here.

Metallica Stream Previously Unreleased Live Recording Of Classic Song

(hennemusic) Metallica are streaming a previously unreleased live version of their 1984 classic, "For Whom The Bell Tolls", as a preview to the November 10 release of a series of reissues of their 1986 album classic, "Master Of Puppets."

Recorded live at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, VA on August 3, 1986 during the last show on Ozzy Osbourne's "Ultimate Sin" tour, the recording features Metallica roadie John Stack (aka John Marshall) on rhythm guitar after frontman James Hetfield had broken his arm earlier in the summer.

"I don't know if you've seen Metallica before," Hetfield tells the crowd, "This really sucks, but I usually have a guitar in my hand at this point, and I got a cast on instead. I jumped off a skateboard at 50mph and that's not too happening"

"For Whom The Bell Tolls" is featured on the "Master Of Puppets" reissue as part of a disc of live material from the 1986 tour and presented alongside the remastered album and a disc that is a combination of rough mixes, demos and an interview. Stream the song here.

Arcade Fire Release Cover Of John Lennon's 'Mind Games'

Arcade Fire have frequently played "Mind Cames" in concert, but they're hardly the first to tackle the song; Sinead O'Connor, George Clinton and Gavin Rossdale have all taken a stab at the John Lennon classic.

"Mind Games" was released in 1973 on Lennon's album of the same name. Listen to a stream of the Arcade Fire's live cover of the John Lennon classic here.

Billy Corgan Previews His 'Pillbox' Short Film

(Radio.com) Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has revealed a trailer for his upcoming short film, Pillbox. Music from Corgan's forthcoming full-length, Ogilala, provides the soundtrack for the film and the trailer.

"I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie," Corgan explained of the synergy between the movie and the album (via Pitchfork). "Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself."

Pillbox will be screened at theaters in in London, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York next month. Tickets for the screenings go on sale September 22nd at 11 a.m. PST and will available on Ogilala.com. Screening attendees will receive limited-edition posters. Check out the trailer here.

Blitzen Trapper Release 'Rebel' Video

(CBPR) Blitzen Trapper have premiered their new video "Rebel". The track comes from their forthcoming album "Wild and Reckless", which will be released on heavyweight vinyl LP, CD & digital on November 3rd. We were sent the following details about the unique effort.

Earlier this year, the Portland, OR-based band accomplished a unique feat for a rock band who has been releasing albums and touring for the better part of two decades: a staged musical titled Wild & Reckless that ran for 28 performances at Portland Center Stage. Today, the band is announcing a new album of the same title that was born from the stage production and as a companion to their 2008 breakthrough album Furr and released the video for the track "Rebel". Watch it here.

"'Rebel' is a song about a guy who for the love of a girl follows in his father's footsteps only to find it to be a scam," explains principal and frontman Eric Earley. "After several tries at the American dream he ends up selling cocaine to blue bloods in the Hollywood hills. Something of a lost Raymond Carver story with shambling near-country soundtrack."
