Dave Grohl In The Studio With Korn

(Radio.com) Korn are preparing to release their 12th studio album The Serenity of Suffering this fall, and now the band's drummer Ray Luzier may have just started the ultimate rumor.

Luzier posted a photo on Instagram, showing Dave Grohl in the studio with the band. His caption says it all. "That one time when Grohl stopped by our studio for #serenityofsuffering sessions. Huge thanks to #nickraskulinecz for making our new record so awesome! #korn #korntour2016#davegrohl #foofighters #musicislife@foofighters," Luzier wrote.

He didn't clarify whether Grohl was on hand to collaborate with Korn in some way, or whether he was just hanging out as Dave Grohl is wont to do. Hashtag studio life? The only confirmed collaboration for their latest album involves Slipknot's Corey Taylor, who will appear on the track "A Different World." Read more here.

Ariana Grande Reportedly Sued For Song Theft

The Canadian songwriter, record producer and remixer says Grande's David Guetta-produced tune "One Last Time" has the same chorus as his EDM track, "Takes All Night," which he wrote for Skye Stevens.

Greggs is reportedly suing for a cut of the profits from the track, which was written by Guetta, Savan Kotecha, Giorgio Tuinfort, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk. Listen to both tracks here.

Matt Heafy Looks Back At Calling Trivium The New Metallica

(Metal Hammer) Matt Heafy has reflected on the time he called his band Trivium "the new Metallica." The vocalist and guitarist says he made the comment after the band shot to success in the UK when he was 18 - but he wasn't prepared for the backlash from his metal peers.

He tells Talk Toomey: "We really blew up in the UK first and we got our first cover feature when we were like 18. The quote on the front was from me because I was a confident 18-year-old, and had been in the band for six years at that point.

"The quote was something along the lines of 'Trivium: The next Metallica' and at that moment it really worked out for our band in the UK. But other bands started seeing that and saying 'Who the hell is this young band calling themselves the next Metallica?'"

He adds: "That's when we started seeing a little bit of difficulty, things that we didn't expect. We didn't expect other bands to not be ready for this young band that had a boatload of determination for what they wanted to do." Read more here.

Taylor Swift Pledges $1 Million To Louisiana Flood Relief

(Gibson) Taylor Swift has pledged a $1 million relief donation to Louisiana after the state was struck with devastating torrential rains. The recent storms claimed the lives of at least 11 people, displaced 20,000 residents and damaged at least 40,000 homes.

Louisiana is a state close to Swift's heart. Speaking to the Associated Press, she says, "We began [2015's] The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home.

"The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time." Read more here.

Marillion Embrace Freedom Of Being Non-Mainstream

(Prog) Marillion say being out of the mainstream gives them the freedom to write about anything they want - a luxury some other artists don't enjoy. They recently revealed the first track from their 18th album FEAR (F*** Everyone And Run) titled The New Kings.

Frontman Steve Hogarth reports he's not constrained in what he can write about as he doesn't have to make compromises in his music. He tells Prog: "The other freedom of expression I have as a lyricist comes from being in this band. I know I can get away with being honest and it won't terminate our career.

"For most artists that would be the end. Even bands like U2, there would be a limit to how much Bono could open his mouth politically without damaging their sales base.

"We're not in that mainstream so we don't even have to consider those compromises. Nobody in the band has ever come along to me and said, 'Are you sure you want to say that?' I'm quite surprised really." Read more here.

Fans Asked To 'Goth-Up' For Anniversary Of Sophie Lancaster's Death

(TeamRock) Music fans are being urged to 'goth up' in memory of Sophie Lancaster on the ninth anniversary of her death. The 20-year-old sustained fatal injuries while trying to protect boyfriend Robert Maltby, who survived the assault, from an attack by Ryan Herbert and Brendan Harris on August 24, 2007. The pair had been targeted because they were wearing goth-style clothing.

That prompted her mother Sylvia Lancaster OBE to set up The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, which aims to tackle hate crimes by educating people about subcultures and spreading a message of tolerance.

And as today marks nine years since Sophie's murder, people are being encouraged to take selfies in goth clothes and make-up in remembrance of Sophie and post their picture on social media with the hashtag #gothupforsophie.

Sylvia Lancaster tells the Lancashire Telegraph: "This is a hard time of year and I feel quite flat as we approach the anniversary of Sophie's murder. But this campaign is wonderful and I am thankful to the organisers who continue to show support. The selfie enables young people to be themselves and it and really shows social media being used at its best."

"It's really uplifting to see people taking part in the #gothupforsophie challenge - and it's also a really fun way for people to express themselves exactly as they want." Read more here.

Periphery In A Really Good Place Relationship-Wise On New Album

(Metal Hammer) Periphery frontman Spencer Sotelo has praised inter-band relationships while recording their latest album Periphery III: Select Difficulty. It was released in July, with Sotelo now revealing it was the first time he and the other members have "been on the same page" when putting the pieces together in the studio.

Sotelo tells Loudwire: "We're in a really good place personal relationship-wise between everybody in the band at this point in time. When we were together writing it just felt like a bunch of friends hanging out and writing music for fun.

"It hasn't been like that in a long time. I won't get into specifics, but there have been things in the past that have hindered writing or recording because of the relationship thing with working with the band.

"This is the first time where everybody has been on the same page and everybody is in good spirits. It felt like just a bunch of brothers writing. I think that's something I'll take away and never forget about this whole Periphery III: Select Difficulty process." Read more here.

Drake Shares Kanye West Track 'You Know, You Know'

(Radio.com) Long before Drake became Drizzy and the 6 God, he was an up-and-coming rapper from Toronto who was trying to shed his acting background in order to be taken seriously in the rap industry. But Kanye West saw talent, and produced a track "You Know, You Know" intended for Drake's 2010 album Thank Me Later.

"You Know, You Know" never made the album's final cut, but on Wednesday (August 24) it finally saw the light of day. Drake shared an audio-only version on his YouTube channel.

Beginning with hyper synths that remain sped up throughout the track's length, "You Know, You Know" doesn't have many bells and whistles about it. And really with Drake's tight rhymes coming fast, it's a reminder about the kind of anti-production he favored when he first burst on the scene, allowing his rap and his voice to remain front and center. West does him a major service by laying down a strong beat and loop against which Drake can shine.

"You know, you know/ How the story go/ You done shot my style/ You done stole my flow," Drake raps in the opening line of the first verse. Even though he was a relative newcomer, Drake still knew he was bound for big things. "I'm here feeling like 50 back '02/ And e'erybody saying I'm the man/ So true!" he raps. Listen to the explicit track here.

Minnesota Wild To Use Prince Anthem In Next NHL Season

(Radio.com) The Minnesota Wild share a home state with late music icon Prince, and they'll pay tribute in the next NHL season by playing the Purple One's "Let's Go Crazy" every time the team scores a goal at their home stadium the Xcel Energy Center.

The single memorably appeared in the film Purple Rain, and aligns Wild fans with the countless other Minnesotans who've already paid tribute to Prince.

The song was selected after a fan poll was conducted to help find a goal theme to replace Joe Satriani's "Crowd Chant." Check out a video the team tweeted to announce the song change here.

"'06" appears as the last track on Staple's 2015 studio album Summertime '06. But in that version, listeners only got hear a brief 48 seconds before Staples abruptly cut things short, ending his 20-track album with white noise instead.

Previously Unreleased J. Dilla Mixtape 'Back to the Crib' Goes Online

(Radio.com) A previously unreleased mixtape from pioneering hip hop producer J. Dilla was released. Titled Back to the Crib, the tape features Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and many more.

The tape comes courtesy of BBE records, who will release a reissue of Dilla's The Shining on August 29th in honor of that album's 10th anniversary.

BBE Records co-founder Peter Adarkwah, spoke with XXL about the origin of the project. 'Towards the end of 1999 or early 2000, it was my first trip to Detroit, James (J Dilla) was working with James Poyser on Erykah's Mama's Gun LP. We'd checked out a couple of record stores (I can't recall where or their names) and this tape was playing in the car. I recall 'Think Twice' was on the tape and I suggested there and then that he do a cover with Erykah for the BBE album. We didn't get the Erykah feature, but people sure remember James' cover." Check out the full tape here.
