Ten years is a long enough wait for two powerhouse and legendary classic rockers to hit the road together again! Styx and Foreigner (who continue with the next leg of their two-year Farewell Tour) team up this summer for the "Renegades & Juke Box Heroes" co-headlining trek, produced by Live Nation. Legendary British rocker, John Waite, will bring his #1 songs, "Missing You" and "When I See You Smile" to the party, rounding out a great night of hits.

Foreigner and Styx are ready to rocket across North America starting June 11, 2024 in Grand Rapids, MI at the Van Andel Arena. Nothing sounds more like summer than collective feel-good anthems such as "Come Sail Away," "Feels Like The First Time," "Renegade," "Juke Box Hero," "Mr. Roboto," and "I Want To Know What Love Is."

Atreyu have premiered a music video for their new single "Come Down," which comes from their forthcoming album, "The Beautiful Dark of Life", that is due December 8 via Spinefarm.

Using a psychedelic drug metaphor, the single speaks to current Atreyu mood. "What we're going through is a high we never want to come down from," frontman Brandon Saller said. "Those experiences with psychedelics can be very awakening to some people, too," adds guitarist Dan Jacobs. "They can break you down and give you a bigger, broader perspective of yourself when you come back down, which I feel is a journey we've all been on." (continue)

Today, following a year in which Peter Gabriel has released a new song on the occasion of every full moon, as well as performed live to rapturous audience throughout the UK, Europe and North America, sees the release of his much-anticipated new studio album, i/o.

i/o is 12 tracks of grace, gravity and great beauty that provide welcome confirmation of not only Peter's ongoing ability to write stop-you-in-your-tracks songs but also of that thrilling voice, still perfectly, delightfully intact. Throughout the album the intelligent and thoughtful - often thought-provoking - songs tackle life and the universe. Our connection to the world around us - 'I'm just a part of everything' Peter sings on title track i/o - is a recurring motif, but so too the passing of time, mortality and grief, alongside such themes as injustice, surveillance and the roots of terrorism. But this is not a solemn record. While reflective, the mood is never despondent; i/o is musically adventurous, often joyous and ultimately full of hope, topped off as it is, by the rousingly optimistic closing song, Live and Let Live.

Queen revisit their iconic early encore cover of the Elvis Presley classic "Jail House Rock" for this week's edition of their The Greatest Live streaming video series. Hollywood Records sent over these details:

While Queen shows of the mid-'70s led rock 'n' roll into a new era, the band often saluted their formative influences as a parting shot. Prior to May 1978, when "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions" took up permanent residence on the setlist's closing straight, the band were known to dive into the songbooks of the great US pioneers, including Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock."

Brooklyn hardcore rockers Cash Bribe have just released their new EP, "Escape From New York", and to celebrate we asked Kirk to tell us about the song "ICBM". Here is the story:

The music for 'ICBM' was something that we had kicking around at the time that Joe and Brian (vocals and bass) joined the band. I think we might have shown it to them as an example of what our songwriting was looking like at that point, to make sure they were down for what Larry (drums) and I were doing. (continue)
