Former Motorhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke - a member from 1976 to 1982 - updated fans on his absence via his Facebook page. "I have been a bit quiet lately," explains Clarke.

"This album is the best thing we've done to date, and we can't wait to share it with you," says Zombie. "No, we mean it. We spent so much time putting this monster together and it's been worth it because this thing is about to explode!
"I can easily say this is my favorite album yet... no joke. Yeah I know everyone says that. But it is seriously our heaviest musical monster to date. Not since 'Hellbilly Deluxe' have I spent this long putting an album together. It was worth it."
Zombie recently issued a video preview of the follow-up to 2013's "Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor", and said "Electric Warlock" carries some forward momentum from the last project.
"I kind of got re-inspired on the last record and this really follows up on it," he revealed.

The group, who launched Trooper beer in 2013, are working on a new beverage following the recent end of the trial run of the stronger brew Trooper 666.
Billed as "somewhere between a stout and a porter," the product is expected at the end of the year and - like Trooper - is being overseen by singer Bruce Dickinson and UK brewers Robinsons.
"This isn't a cash grab," says Dave Shack of Phantom Music Management, which oversees the group's business. "This isn't about making millions of pounds from beer. This is about making a quality product that corroborates the band's position as a great British export and a very proud British institution." Read morehere.

Reynolds says: "Redshift is a song about bloody good luck. On the grandest of scales. Literally. Our universe is expanding faster and faster and a few trillion years from now, everything will have sped away from us so fast that all we would see when looking out from Earth is empty space.
"We would deduce that we were totally alone in the universe. A lost sheep. The last and only biscuit in the tin." Watch the videohere.

Though there are no official dates announced, bassist Aaron 'Bubble' Patrick confirms toTeamRock that the band are currently planning shows across the US - and are also eyeing the UK and Europe for later this year.
He says: "Beauty & The Breakdown without a doubt changed my life. I joined the band while they were in the studio with Jason Sucof and Mark Lewis recording it.
"From the moment I heard the rough guitar tracks, I knew we had something special. The first three tours we did on that record were Devildriver, Family Values '06 with Korn and then we finished out the year supporting Killswitch Engage and All That Remains. Those shows were unbelievable.
"Having known the band since day one and watching the career grow, I couldn't believe how far it had come. We all watched B&TB continue to gain traction and win over the hearts of heavy music lovers everywhere - it was almost too good to be true.
"It's going to be exciting performing together again." Read morehere.

We talked about revisiting it, taking it somewhere new. I was looking forward to that. I received an email from him seven days ago.
"It was as funny as always, and as surreal, looping through word games and allusions and all the usual stuff we did. It ended with this sentence, 'Thank you for our good times, Brian. They will never rot.' It was signed, 'Dawn.' I realise now he was saying goodbye." Read morehere.
The album will be released February 26 on digipak/DVD, 2LP coloured vinyl, CD and digital formats via Steamhammer/SPV and backed by a UK and European tour starting in April.

Tony Visconti, who produced tracks on Blackstar (â˜…) including "Lazarus," took to Facebook to explain the careful consideration the icon gave his final works:
"He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life - a work of Art. He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry."
The statement clarifies what some fans had wondered about the song "Lazarus," named for the biblical saint who was raised from the dead. Read morehere.
The band report: "Last week, we got a sneak peek at what goes on behind the curtains of our criminal justice system. A few sleepless nights later we gathered in the studio and wrote this song. Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in two days."

He previously said of his business: "I was well into my 20s with a college degree and a corporate job, playing with music with no intention of generating money or some massive fan base. Before I even realised it, I was making 100% of my living creating art. How did this happen? Because we ignored the rules.
"We are here to celebrate the artists that are following their own path, undeterred by the trends." Watch the videohere.

Club bosses chose to play O Ville Lumiere (O City of Light) instead and are now considering making the switch a permanent one. O Ville Lumiere is a Parisian adaptation of Scottish national anthem Flower Of Scotland.
Fans are divided over the issue, according to France Football. One supporter, Alexis, says: "Frankly, I do not find it suitable. When players enter the field, you need a catchy sound that moves. That is not the case with O Ville Lumiere. I love this song, but the music of Phil Collins as the players enter - it gives me chills. Do not touch a tradition like that." Read morehere.

"Set in the fictional world of Cogtopolis, each CD serves as a different act of the story, with Dean Marsh and Luke Severn, along with to-be-announced guest vocalists, providing the singing voices of the inhabitants."
The band say they've written a 50-page script for the conceptual piece and brought in actors to bring the story to life, and add: "A far cry from a musical, where characters burst into song at the drop of a proverbial hat, The Clockwork Fable serves as a sprawling motion picture that will play out in your neocortex with Gandalf's Fist, of course, providing the soundtrack."

Townsend revealed last year that the symphony - which he described as a "hellish apocalypse" - would be recorded in Surround Sound in Belgium and would come complete with a visual counterpart.
Now he says he has much of the work written, and that he's finished his book which he previously described as "ridiculous." Townsend tells Dead Rhetoric: "Typically when I do interviews, one of the things I hear a lot is that I'm constantly busy and going, going, and going - but really I just think I'm efficient.
"I have a lot of time when I don't do anything. I go for a walk, or go get ice cream, or go do yoga. I take weekends off. I'm not balls to the wall - when it's time for me to work, then I'm balls to the wall." Read morehere.
