They're scheduled to play at the 2015 Prostate Cancer UK charity gig, dubbed "Rock 'n' Horsepower" at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey. The show will take place on September 5,
'This year is the 40th anniversary since The Faces parted ways, so it's about time we got together for a jam," Rod Stewart said. "Being in The Faces back in the day was a whirlwind of madness but my God, it was beyond brilliant. We are pleased to be able to support Prostate Cancer UK."
Jones added, "The years of The Faces were some of the best of my life and I'm so proud to have been a part of the band. I'm unbelievably excited to have the opportunity to get up on stage with Rod and Ronnie again. Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan will be dearly missed but we'll raise a glass to them."
Wood said, 'Getting back on stage with the lads playing 'Stay with Me' and other favourites will be a blast and will make this a very special night. Being in The Faces was a mad and brilliant time for all of us and although we don't have Ronnie and Mac with us anymore this is our chance to remember them and say 'Had Me a Real Good Time.'"

"I was really looking forward to returning to Europe and playing with the band again," says Davies, "and I'm sorry to disappoint everyone who has overwhelmingly supported the upcoming tour. Unfortunately my current health issues have derailed me and right now I need to focus all of my energy on getting well."
Davies formed Supertramp in 1969 in London with Roger Hodgson. Marking the band's first live performances since their 2010 European tour, the "Supertramp Forever" concerts were scheduled to begin November 3 in Porto, Portugal and continue throughout 25 European cities. Read morehere.
He appeared on the single Can I Sit Next To You, Girl which was later re-recorded by Scott and appeared on the TNT album. Now he wants to give fans the full picture about the band's early days.
Evans tells The Australian Rock Show (via Blabbermouth): "One of the last books written about AC/DC didn't cover the first part of AC/DC, because without that first 12 months of the birth of the band, the rest of the history is not complete - it can't be.
"The fans want to know exactly what happened so I'm making some inquiries now to write the book, so that AC/DC fans out there can have the full collection."
He says he wants to speak up to also give other original members Colin Burgess and Larry Van Kriedt the credit they're due. Read morehere.
Taylor made the observation while promoting his new book "Making Me Hate You" with Loudwire and playing their 'Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?' game. He was asked about a quote from his book about being partially embarrassed to be part of today's music scene.
He told the site, "I feel like I'm being stung by 1,000 bees all at once. It's so Auto-Tuned and it's so beat corrected and it's so canned and processed and lifeless. You might as well be listening to a f-ing piece of wood at that point.
"It bothers me because I put so much into everything I do. I put so much into my music, I bleed for it, I die for it every goddamn night. To watch these people basically let a computer go through the motions and do all the work for them, it's insulting to everyone out there who has more talent and less attention."

"When I was a boy," says Stanley, "before I ever saw The Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw the Temptations and all that music is part of the foundation of the music I've made.
"Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that's real, live and faithfully recreates the sound with the respect it deserves. Whether it's the Stylistics, the Dramatics, the Temptations, Smokey and the Miracles, Blue Magic and on, these songs, arrangements and sound just blow you away."
Stanley says fans should not expect a night of KISS music at a Soul Station show, even though KISS drummer Eric Singer is in the lineup. "I don't play guitar in the band and we don't do a single KISS song," he explains. "That's not what this is about. It's magical to hear those songs played right and we're making magic.

In 2010, Carlos contends he and his bandmates signed an agreement which noted that while he would step away from performing live, he would remain a fully-vested member of the band, hold equal shares in the band's fortunes, be an equal partner in the various corporations through which Cheap Trick conducts its business and would maintain the right to essentially nullify any business decision with which he disagreed.
Late last year, Cheap Trick members filed a countersuit against Carlos in a Deleware court stating the drummer was ousted from the group when he stopped touring with the band and that left him subject to removal as a corporate director without a unanimous shareholder vote.
"As far as the last few years have gone, I have dismissed my lawsuit against the band," Carlos tells Classic Rock Revisited. "I remain a twenty-five percent owner and a member of Cheap Trick. The decisions Cheap Trick makes I am a part of. That's basically how that kind of ended up.
"It is kind of a musical uncoupling type of thing. It's something like that, you know. In 2010, I got notified and was told, basically, to not show up for the next gig. One guy doesn't want me there and the other guys were fine with that. They asked if they could use my drums. I said, 'Yeah, go ahead and then send them back to me, please.' That is basically what happened.
"The lawsuits were about business, you know. There are ways to run a business and they weren't being run correctly in my opinion. I had to go to court to enforce my rights." Read morehere.
The three-day event at Chicago's Grant Park saw the metal veterans top the bill on Saturday, while Paul McCartney closed Friday and Florence + The Machine wrapped up the weekend on Sunday evening.
Metallica's Lollapalooza set is available at livemetallica.com The band will launch a short series of European shows in Bergen, Norway on August 20; the trek includes appearances at both of the UK's Reading and Leeds festivals at the end of the month. Check out the "Creeping Death" performancehere.
Ian tells Eddie Trunk Live: "Music's never been cheaper than now. You can get a brand new record from your favourite band for $10. And even that's high, because most bands will sell them cheaper.
"It wasn't that long ago that CDs cost $18.99 at the Virgin Megastore. Records cost half what they used to cost, and people aren't buying them as much, which is crazy to me. What more do the people want?
"I understand why it's happening but you would think people would just have the attitude, 'I'm gonna support music, I'm gonna support the bands I love, because if I don't support this, the bands I love aren't gonna be able to make records any more." Read morehere.
It's officially approved by Experience Hendrix LLC and receives its TV debut on the US Showtime network on September 4, followed by a DVD release via Sony on October 30.
Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church explores how promoter Alex Cooley secured him for the festival bill, just weeks before the guitar icon's death. It includes performance footage of classic tracks plus material that was to appear later, and a version of The Star Spangled Banner that Cooley says "knocked people's socks off." Read morehere.
The record was Diamond's first concept album and told the story of a couple who move into a haunted mansion in 1845 and the grisly consequences of their actions.
Last month, Diamond revealed he was working on the follow-up to 2007's Give Me Your Soulů Please but insisted he wouldn't be rushed. He said: "We are going to take our time, and it's going to be the best you've ever heard from us - there's no doubt in my mind. We have all the tools at our fingertips this time." See the fall tour dateshere.
Lyman accused "old, fat and bald" metal bands of inflicting long-term damage on the genre, although he later apologised. His outburst led King to bite back, criticising the quality of the bill and particularly of a label-sponsored stage.
Reese then admitted the spat had hurt the event financially, and called on supporters of metal to unite behind the genre's ideals. This week he posted a photo of himself with King Diamond on Facebook and said: "So amazing to have The King on the last Mayhem evah."
Earlier he'd said: "After spending eight years of passion and one full year of my life on the road with the festival, tonight is a very emotional night. We have tried our damned hardest to make Mayhem a home for artists, a platform for bands to increase their fanbase and a place where people feel welcomed." See his postshere.
Malyan says: "I'm sorry to say that I am parting ways with the band. All upcoming gigs are still going ahead, and the next drummer for the band is gonna blow your mind."
He promises to explain his decision in more depth soon, and adds: "It's important you all know this is a decision I made months ago, and we all have nothing but love for each other." Read morehere.
It includes two brand-new songs alongside 10 reworked pieces from the band's catalogue, chosen via the Kickstarter campaign established to fund production.
Panic Room say: "Thanks to the incredible support and confidence you've given us, we were afforded a freedom of creativity that has far exceeded our initial idea.
"We set out to capture some truly unique acoustic versions of your favourite songs. We have enjoyed the process of reincarnation so much that a lot of extra magic has been breathed into the album."
They add that the title Essence was chosen because it "captures the true spirit of the project" and say the results showcase "the breadth and beauty of each musician's talent - and the fun and feisty way they work together." Read more and watch the trailerhere.
"For me, it started the moment I first stepped onto the beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 1982. And again in Maui, Hawaii," says Hagar. "There's something about the island lifestyle that just makes your soul blissful and keeps you coming back for more. It's the feeling you get from being in paradise and there's no denying it.
"It's this quality of life and island vibe that I set out to infuse into Sammy's Island products. And my goal is to take you there-a state of mind that brings it all together. So welcome to my 'Island' - now let's get the party started!" Read morehere.
"Shockwave Supernova" also debuted on the Billboard Rock Chart at No. 3 and ranks as the highest charting all-instrumental rock album on Billboard's Top 200 in the Soundscan era.
The project was recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA; the guitarist co-produced the project with John Cuniberti. Check out the video for the title trackhere.
It was recorded in Los Angeles with veteran producer Steve Evetts (Suicide Silence, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Architects), while the video was directed by Jeremi Mattern.
He says: "Check out the new music video I directed for The Wonder Years! Truly honoured to work with a such a great band." No Closer To Heaven is the follow-up to 2013's The Greatest Generation, which TeamRock named as one of its Modern Classics last year. Watch the new videohere.
Now Draiman tells The Scotty Mars Show: "I'm free at last, thank God almighty - free at last! It's beautiful." He adds: "For a few years I really enjoyed the interaction. It was wonderful having that sort of insight into what my fans were thinking. It was a great relationship."
But he found the experience turning negative as his following increased from a few thousand to 150,000 and more, making it difficult for him to respond to all comments.
"It gets to be a little crazy," he says. "It was taking time away from my family and other things - and it was a source of aggravation. Unfortunately you're just a very small fish in a very big pond and you barely make a ripple. It's like, 'Okay, what am I doing this for exactly?'" Read morehere.
His video features Pink Floyd backing vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson alongside Kerzner himself, and uses visual elements created by Christine Leakey.
Kerzner tells Prog: "New World is a cinematic type of concept album. I've planned a lot of visual elements to go along with the music, in the form of music videos and also for the upcoming live shows. I drew inspiration from movies like Star Wars, Dune and Capricorn One. It was a thrill for us to shoot this on location in a real desert!"
New World is on sale now in a range of formats. The Dave Kerzner Band, featuring McBroom-Hudson and sister Lorelei, perform on this year's Cruise To The Edge on November 15-19, with tour dates to be announced soon. Watch the videohere.
Banks tells Classic Rock's Mark Blake: "Let's be frank - most of my solo work has been overlooked. That's okay. The success I had with Genesis made up for it.
"But once you've been through all the Genesis albums, you've done Mike + The Mechanics, Phil Collins', Peter Gabriel's and Steve Hackett's solo albums, you might find my stuff is worth a listen."
He accepts that he might be a victim of being thought of as the one who wrote the "long songs" in the band. "There's more complexity in my songs than in Mike Rutherford's," he says. "I like unusual harmonies, things like the intro to Watcher Of The Skies. But I've written more concise songs as well. Afterglow is one of mine and that's a very straightforward thing." Read morehere.
He collaborated with the band Railroad Earth on the title, which features tracks he didn't want to use in Gov't Mule or with the now-defunct Allman Brothers Band, or even in a purely solo work.
Haynes recently said: "This record was really a chance to bring a lot of that music to fruition. It's given me the opportunity to take a lot of songs I love, that didn't have a home, and build a home for them." See the new tour dateshere.
Bon Jovi said of their 13th album: "This is a fan record to accompany a 12-show international tour. It's the songs that weren't finished, that were finished, a couple of new ones like the one we released as a single."
"It's sort of a hint as to where we're going musically - but the new album, the real new album, will be early next year." Bon Jovi released a lyric video for the track We Don't Run earlier this week. Their next full release, expected early next year, will be their first with no input from guitarist Richie Sambora, who left in 2013, to be replaced by Phil X. Stream the lyric videohere.
This little ditty speaks for itself. Everyone has seen the video footage in the media of 'healers'... bringing a cure to the number of various internal, terminal illnesses a person may be plagued with.
Tumors, cancers and or just abnormal growths under the shin, or, deep within the body. Is it just a sleight of hand or is it really real? We'll find out. The premise for this song is based on the incurable/ inoperable brain tumor I actually have in the center of my head. No sh*t.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, stream the full album here and learn more about the groupright here!
