Apocalyptica are thrilled to announce the fourth and final exciting single from Apocalyptica Plays Metallica, Vol. 2 - the hotly-anticipated sequel to their legendary debut record. The Call of Ktulu will coincide with the album's release, and follows on from a rapturous response to the preceding three singles: stunning reinterpretations of The Four Horsemen, The Unforgiven II, and One. Most notably, The Call of Ktulu features a truly remarkable guest: legendary Metallica bassist Cliff Burton himself.

Apocalyptica Plays Metallica Vol. 2 will continue the journey that began in 1996 when cellists from Helsinki's world-renowned Sibelius Academy played symphonic tribute to the biggest of the big four - heavy metal titans Metallica. For their ninth record the classically-minded dynamos are returning to their roots to bring a legendary story full circle. It also features a host of surprises, including appearances by Metallica's very own James Hetfield, Rob Trujillo, and - in a move that is sure to set the metal world alight - The Call of Ktulu, featuring the original bassline laid down by Cliff Burton, who tragically lost his life in a tour bus accident in 1986.

Los Lonely Boys announce the release of their first new album in 11 years. Out August 2nd via BMG, Resurrection marks a return to form for the GRAMMY-winning, multi-platinum trio of Texican brothers, who have performed everywhere from the GRAMMYs telecast to the World Series to recent tours with The Who. Lead single "Wish You Would" conjures the group's classic sound, combining breezy guitar leads with hard-earned doses of wisdom.

"It's something we think people need to hear-especially the youth," says bassist/vocalist Jojo Garza, speaking on "Wish You Would" and Resurrection. "When we're young, we think we have it figured out. When you get older, you start to see things differently. Having kids of our own, we see their ambitions and ideas of what they want to be, so we want to be good parents. The message is, 'Be careful what you wish for. There could be a false light, and we don't want you to get hurt'." (continue)

TRF Boog just released a new single called "Dump It" from the forthcoming album "Me Vs. Me" and to celebrate we asked Boog to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

All I can really say to describe this record is energy. Have your best outfit ready to hit the clubs because this is a record that I believe will take over the clubs. It's got all the makings of a club/radio hit. Braggy lyrics, tempo for women to dance and twerk to after a long week of getting to their bag, and a catchy hook. (continue)
