The song originally appeared as a hidden track on the duo's 2003 album Red Dirt Road. Dunn had the following to say this week about the track, why it was hidden, and their plans to benefit the victims in Orlando:
"I started writing HOLY WAR when the planes were flying into the Twin Towers. Shortly afterwards, the Taliban were shown on tv telling people that America was, per their interpretation of the Koran made up of infidel Jews, homosexuals and corrupt politicians.
"The Twin Towers represented the Tower of Babel (illicit wealth, power) Many faith driven people believed that the act was the beginning of Armageddon…..the ultimate HOLY WAR.
"The record label did not want me to record the song so I took my own money, recorded it and put it on the cd as a 'hidden track. It's on iTunes …you can buy it.
"If you do, I will donate EVERY penny of my earnings to the victims of the Orlando terrorist attack. RD" Listen to it here.
A representative of the band reportedly tells TMZ that last week's shooting of 22-year-old singer and former contestant on The Voice Christina Grimmie and the terrorist attack in Orlando played a factor in the group's decision.
The band say: "Filter just received a death threat at the club tonight. We will not be performing." In addition, Combichrist, who were due to issue a new music video this week, say they've postponed its release in light of the US shootings. Read more here.
He tells exclusively TeamRock: "It's the big anniversary of two big rock albums next year. One is Def Leppard's Hysteria, the other one is Appetite For Destruction by Guns N' Roses. It was a big year in 1987.
"I'd love to have the reformed Guns N' Roses here, who knows? I'm certainly not giving any clues and I've not booked them, but that would be an amazing thing." Read more here.

While The Saint Pablo Tour will be Yeezy's first full tour since 2014, he recently played the Hot 97 Summer Jam after being forced to cancel a Governors Ball Headline appearance due to inclement weather. Storms notwithstanding, Kanye tried to schedule a late night show at Irving Plaza, but when 2,500 people swarmed the neighborhood the venue called off the event.
Dismayed fans protested by leaping on top of cars and yelling obscenities. Police were finally able to disburse the crowd and no serious injuries occurred. See the dates here.
Although she hasn't shared a release date for the project yet, Caillat will be going on tour this fall with fiance Justin Young and High Dive Heart. It marks her first acoustic tour. "I've always wanted to play an acoustic tour," she said, according to the press release. "Showing the rawness of the songs I wrote in their natural state."
Caillat shared how Young and High Dive Heart will not only serve as her backing band and opening acts throughout the tour, but how they also contributed to helping her write her newest album.

"We're playing my new album in its entirety from its running order. We'll also be playing songs from previous albums and doing a Q&A. I've never been more excited for a tour than I am this one!"

The slick video, full of deep blues and glowing neon lights, focuses on an underground female MMA fighter. When she's done trouncing other ladies, she heads to her job as a stripper. But she doesn't play nice with her customers. After bashing a beer bottle over one guy's head (supposedly because someone hired her to), she hops in an auto rickshaw and takes to the sultry, colorful streets. Thanks to her mode of transportation, it looks as though the video was filmed in Thailand.
Even though the song boasts several big name features, only Scott appears in the video. In between shots of the female lead going about her night, he hangs out by another tricked out vehicle. "All I need is a gas and the lighter," he sings on the chorus, bringing that line to life with two tire strips on fire and palming a lighter throughout his appearance. Watch the video here.
After "Moig For Love" premiered, the duo shared two other songs. One called "Feel Like I Do" features the vocals of legendary soul man Al Green. The other track entitled "Boss" is pure house music.

The new music video was directed by Mimi Cave and features Brown's signature frenetic energy mixed with classic VHS footage and shots of Detroit's urban living.

"They're music fans to the same high degree I am and I'm looking forward to breaking some rules together." Watch the video here.
Ian and Gower discuss how the design for the king of the White Walkers came about. The producers wanted him to have a regal, almost royal, look about him. Gower explains how they were toying with the idea of having him wear a crown but instead altered his appearance instead. "Maybe we do something to his physiology so he's actually got these ice-like thorns growing out of his skull," he recounts of their decision.
Once Ian begins to don the different prosthetics, he's struck by how flexible everything is. For every little movement, the mask moves with him as if it were a second skin. Once the prosthetics have been applied, designers step in to add texture, hair, and colored contact lenses. The result is one creepy Ian.
Ian now has the distinction of having played both a White Walker on Game of Thrones, and a Walker on The Walking Dead; he told Radio.com about his Walking Dead experience last year. Watch the NSFW transformation in full here.

It was produced by Nick Raskulinecz, and guitarrist and vocalist Matt Page praised the music veteran for his work behind the desk on the follow-up to 2014's Heretics.
He said: "We decided we needed help realising the vision we had for the new album. The songs were different enough from our earlier material that we felt they needed a new treatment and a fresh set of ears to help pull out the strengths and tighten up the ambiguities of each song.
"We contacted several producers we wanted to work with, and sent them the demos. We were thrilled to learn Nick Raskulinecz was interested in working with us. We went to Nashville to meet him and jam at Rock Falcon Studio and had a blast. There was a real chemistry between all of us and we knew we'd found our guy." Watch the video here.
Singer Elin Larsson said of the album title: "Lady Gold is a character who symbolises death. We wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead we made her a lady in gold."
Last month, the band revealed the cover art for the record and announced a UK and Ireland tour, which gets under way in November. Prior to those shows, Blues Pills have a number of European dates scheduled, kicking off in Norway on June 23. Watch the video and see the tour dates here.

Glover's potential involvement means a big win for fans who have long wishes to see him included in the franchise. For 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, Glover's fans began a campaign to cast him as the famous nice guy superhero. The part would eventually go to Andrew Garfield. Read more here.
Last year, Britney Spears shared a photo with the actor at an airport and could barely contain her excitement. As it turns out, O'Neill had no idea who Spears was--Britney who?
The actor told Ellen Degeneres how it happened: 'She came up and said, 'Oh, Mr. O'Neill, I love Modern Family and you're my favorite on the show!' And I go, well, I'm here, I'm the only one here you know'" he said. '[She goes] 'could you please, and I know you're in a hurry' -- couldn't have been nicer. And I said sure, fine. You know, okay."
The next day, O'Neill's manager texted him to say his photo with Spears had gone viral. The comedy veteran had no idea that any such photo with the pop superstar had been taken. 'No, I didn't know it was her! I mean, look at the look on my face! Do I look like I'm sitting with Britney Spears?" Check it out here.
