The 12'' will be available at all participating physical and online retailers on November 27 while "The Threat Is Real" will be available digitally. The tune follows the new project's lead single, "Fatal Illusion", as the second track issued ahead of its January 22 release.
Megadeth recorded their 15th album in Nashville, TN earlier this year. Check out the streamhere.
"I've got so many riffs," Iommi tells Q magazine. "I wrote a whole load of stuff for another album and we met up in L.A. but the others... well, Geezer didn't particularly want to do another album. Then again, after you've just had a No. 1 album, where do you go from there?
"For the last LP we did record 16 songs (and only used 12), so we may still put something out from that. We don't know yet." Iommi and Black Sabbath will launch their 2016 farewell tour on January 20 in Omaha, NE before dates in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and a return to North America.
Billed as "The End", the trek marks the group's final series of live shows after a five-decade career. "Do I intend to stop playing? No," says Iommi. "It's the touring really. I'd love to do something with the guys. But, whatever happens, I will do something." Watch the full interviewhere.
Recorded live during the band's first North American tour, 2014's A Journey Through The History of Rock, the package is rounded out with exclusive interviews and extras.
"At Your Service" will be available as a Black Friday package on November 27 via Hagar's website. Last month, Hagar and Johnson performed the Van Halen classic "Right Now" during a special halftime performance at the San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. Check out more details for the new release along with the trailerhere.
And in an emotional interview with Vice, where the band go into harrowing detail about the events of that night, they say they'll return to Paris as soon as they possibly can.
Frontman Jesse Hughes says: "I cannot wait to get back to Paris - I cannot wait to play. I want to be the first band to play at the Bataclan when it opens back up.
"I was there when it went silent for a minute. Our friends went there to see rock'n'roll and died. I'm gonna go back there and live." Read morehere.
Lee tells SiriusXM: "It's always emotional. At this point, we're not able to agree on doing more tours. It doesn't look possible. But I would say that, being an optimist and a patient person, I hope that will change. We've talked about more music as Rush. There are other ways of presenting our music to the public. But we haven't discussed it since the end of the tour."
Guitarist Alex Lifeson suggested earlier this year that physical issues were affecting his opinions on the future. Now he says: "I felt very healthy, after some issues over the last few tours. I loved playing every night and I loved playing every note of every one of those songs. I still have some in me that I would like to do." Read morehere.
Taylor shared lead vocal duties on the song with SiM's singer, Mah, going back and forth until the chorus where both belt out Thom Yorke's famous lyrics together.
Taylor was performing at the massive two-day Ozzfest Japan as a solo artist. Taylor is no stranger to covers, as Loudwire points out. His band Stone Sour is set to release an EP titled Straight Outta Burbank comprised of all cover tunes. The record, which hits stores this Saturday, contains covers of Bad Brains' "Sailin' On," the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter", Motley Crue's "Too Fast for Love" and Slayer's "Season in the Abyss."
Part of the band's "Burbank" cover sessions, the disc is one of three cover EPs recorded at the drummer's home in the Los Angeles suburb. The first, …Meanwhile in Burbank was released back in April for Record Store Day and features covers of classic tracks from Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Metallica, KISS and Alice in Chains. Watch the fan footage of the Radiohead coverhere.
LOG say: We're happy to announce that Deafheaven and Power Trip will be joining us on our upcoming US tour with Anthrax this January and February. Tickets are available now."
This week, LOG frontman Randy Blythe explained the band's decision to cancel all of their European tour dates in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. See the upcoming tour dateshere.
Explaining his decision in a post on his blog, he says: "I have put up a 19-minute group of six songs recorded on four-track cassette in May 2010, the instrumentation being three guitars and one drum machine.
"I have also uploaded a 37-minute collection of tunes made between 2009 and 2011 which were all recorded in my main studio during various stages of its development.
"Furthermore, you will find in these places the full 20-minute version of Sect In Sgt, my all-sample piece, in its entirety. In addition, there is an interpretation of the song Fight For Love from the movie Casa De Mi Padre, recorded one sunny afternoon in November 2013 by Omar Rodriguez and myself, plus Medre, a track recorded in 2008, and a vocal and guitar only version of the song Zone, from my album Enclosure." Read morehere.
And he says his early experiences in life mean he's content with putting this trust in his own abilities. He tells Metal Sucks: "I just try and be the best guitar player I can, the best band member that I can possibly be. Stuff like polls, it doesn't really make that much difference to me. It seems like a popularity contest to me.
"Ever since I was a kid, I've always been really good at losing popularity contests. So to all of a sudden start winning these contests as an adult, I kind of know better.
"I'm like the classic case of a shy, nerdy kid who just wanted to play guitar and just found that he could do something really well. And I just took it." Read morehere.
He said at the time he'd still work in the studio with Issues, and in a new statement he insists that is still the case. He says: "After much thought and discussion, I regret to inform you that I am officially parting ways with the band as of now. To some this may come a shock, to others, you may have seen this coming from miles away."
Acord – who is also a drummer – adds that he was never keen on joining the band in the first place and that his heart was never in it. He says: "The problem with doing something that your heart isn't fully committed to though, is it wears off real quick. I started to become envious of every other band member living out their dreams playing what they were passionate about, getting better at their craft, all the while I was showing up for work every day.
"It got to the point where my least favourite part of the day was getting on stage, which is pretty ass backwards to the point of playing music for a living." Read morehere.
The promo – directed by Pete Jones and Rick Wayne – features a pint-sized version of the band rocking out in a classroom, with actual members of Plain White T's making cameo appearances.
The band say: "We are so excited about this video and cannot wait for you all to see it." Plain White T's play at Slims in San Francisco, CA, on November 27 and at The Boardwalk in Orangevale, CA, the following night. Watch the videohere.
The outfit was formed by bassist and vocalist Fabrizio Grossi, guitarist Lance Lopez with drummer Kenny Aronoff, and they'll launch West Of Flushing South Of Frisco on February 26 via Mascot Label Group.
Grossi says: "The blues is what makes me tick. It's the main ingredient of any successful musical recipe. You'll feel B.B. King's presence on stage - even though we might be wearing space suits."
The band aim to tour North America and Europe. "It was important for us to do this with people who can eventually join us live on stage when we tour," says Grossi. "Every night will see different guests appearing. It will be like The Who's Magic Bus tour." Check out a trailer and grab song download linkhere.
Drummer Damon Wilson says: "Britpop was possibly England's last great music revolution. We wanted to celebrate those heady days when guitar music ruled the waves and people were excited around the world by British music. With a nod to The Beatles, we decided Abbey Road Studios would be the perfect destination.
"Tender is something of a rarity for Blur, with its echoes of American gospel. It resonated with our love of soul and roots music." The Temperance Movement are currently touring Europe and return to the UK in January. They'll launch second album White Bear on January 15. Watch the videohere.
Blackmore has lined up three rock shows for next year, during which he will play hits from his career with Rainbow and Deep Purple. Keith is joined in the lineup for the shows by bassist Bob Nouveau, Stratovarius keyboardist Jens Johansson and Lords Of Black vocalist Ronnie Romero.
Keith works with Blackmore in his folk project Blackmore's Night and he says he's thrilled to be part of his return to rock. Keith tells Deep Purple Italia: "There is a section of the Blackmore's Night live show where Ritchie puts on the Strat for a few songs, and we crank up the rock'n'roll. The energy on stage is amazing, and I often found myself thinking, 'Man, I wonder if he's considering doing some rock shows, because this is f***ing fantastic.'
"I guess you could consider the last few years with Blackmore's Night my audition. Ritchie approached me one night recently after a show, and casually mentioned that he was thinking of doing some rock shows, and that he'd like me to play them if I was interested. I was in shock. I thought, 'He's really going to do this, and I get to be a part of it.' Unbelievable." Read morehere.
The tune was the second single from the band's third album, "Caress Of Steel", and is paired in the concert footage with "Anthem", the opening track on 1975's "Fly By Night", which marked the recording debut of drummer Neil Peart in the lineup.
"R40 Live" presents Rush live in concert in Toronto over two nights this past June. The shows at the Air Canada Centre marked the first time the group have filmed in their hometown in almost 20 years.
Mixed by David Botrill (Tool, Muse), the new live release is named after the group's 40th anniversary box set, "R40." Watch the videohere.
Frontman Spike says: "It will be more than 18 months since we played so many full electric shows across the UK and it's time we treated the fans to a big old party.
"We'll be rolling out an all-new set featuring our favourite songs from the last four records, all the classics and some tunes that have never been played live. Let's see how that works out."
HRH's Jonni Davis adds: "We've been planning quite a few of these high value packages under the HRH banner to tour various countries for some time. This will be the first of many which have been requested by the HRH family and are now out there for everyone to enjoy. Getting Spike and the lads to headline the first one just made it even more special." See the dateshere.
Luke Parry tagged the fireworm - a marine relative of earthworms and leeches - Rollinschaeta myoplena in honor of the former Black Flag frontman as the organism was a "muscly beast."
Parry tells Phys.org: "Fossil muscle tissue is rare and usually not described in any detail by paleontologists, but our discovery highlights that soft tissues preserved in fossils can offer details approaching what we can observe in living organisms.
"When choosing a name for our muscly beast, we decided to honor Henry Rollins, the legendary, muscular frontman of LA punk band Black Flag." Read morehere.
Meanwhile, Henning Basse has been confirmed as Firewind's new frontman. Firewind say: "Some of you might know him from his work in Metalium, others might have also seen him on stage with us. Henning is no stranger to Firewind fans as he toured the world with us back in 2007.
"Since last year he started playing some shows with Gus G's solo band and he delivered amazing performances, stunning the crowds all over Europe. Henning is an amazing frontman and a personality that totally fits with what Firewind is all about." Watch the videohere.
Marsh says: "The entire album was written and recorded in only seven days, and as with my previous album Sentiment, I played all of the instruments in my Trondheim recording studio.
"As always, I used the studio as organically as possible. I don't rely on the computer - I record complete live takes, and try to capture a feel that brings out the emotion of the song. To me, that's much more important than fixing every note and polishing the soul out of the music."
On the video, Marsh adds: "The photos used in the video were taken as I was walking to the studio one morning. Little did I know that I was about to start the writing and recording that day, so these photos were in fact the very first part of the process."
The album is released on December 1 via Autumnsongs Records and will only be available on CD. Check out the new songhere.
McCormick was responsible for discovering and protecting material by Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lead Belly and many others, and he's credited with giving Lightnin' Hopkins' career a new lease of life.
He started out as an archivist of popular culture in Ohio, before being hired in 1946 to research the last two volumes of a jazz compilation. That led to a fascination with the blues, and the building of an archive collected from nearly 1000 counties.
During his career he researched a biography of Robert Johnson, and worked on an encyclopedia of Texas blues, neither of which were completed. He also wrote a number of album liner notes and lent his experience to the Smithsonian Institute. Read morehere.
Hutchinson says: "I've played around 70 shows this year, many of them with Mr Brundage. Certain songs became staples of our blues duo shows and the idea was to recreate that feel.
"We set up a few microphones in the studio and just started playing. It's all live with no amps or fancy technology. Warts and all - just as acoustic blues should be."
The EP can be streamedhere.
And while he says the material he recorded with Ian Anderson will always feature in his set, he ultimately wants his solo material to take centre stage. Barre tells Paste: "Jethro Tull's music will always be a part of my work - but I hope it becomes about 40% instead of 60%.
"I will never turn my back on it, though. I'm not so stupid that I don't know that people come to hear me play so they can hear Tull. But a lot of that music is in me anyway. That's not far from home. It will always be there."
And while he'll always be associated with Tull, Barre stresses the importance of his band having their own identity. Read morehere.
