Tool's Schism Performed By 40-Piece Orchestra

(Metal Hammer) Tool's Schism has been reimagined by a 40-piece orchestra. The group known as Metamorphestra have released a video of their version of the track, originally released on Tool's 2001 album Lateralus.

Metamorphestra have also launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the release of their album The Ship Of Theseus. The LA-based musicians behind the project previously released an album called Tantamount, from which the Tool cover is taken.

They say: "Metamorphestra is a brand new orchestra, founded in 2016 by Nick Proch. The group brings an oversized, high-energy, film score-esque approach to familiar songs.

"You've probably heard the originals on the radio, but you've never heard them played by a giant orchestra of LA's finest session players, recorded and mixed in world-class recording studios." Watch the video here.

John Mayer Pulls Out Of Prince Tribute Concert

(Radio.com) John Mayer has pulled out of the Prince Tribute Concert, which will take place tonight in St. Paul, Minnesota. "Change of schedule for him," concert promoter Randy Levy told The Minneapolis Star Tribune. "That's about all we know."

Mayer's slot on the bill was a bit of an eyebrow-raiser in the first place. Most recently, the pop star toured with the Grateful Dead spinoff band Dead and Company. His last album was 2013's Paradise Valley and he really doesn't have any connection to funk music or Prince — though he can play a mean guitar, which connects his to Prince on some level.

More directly, Mayer's manager is Irving Azoff, who was contacted by L. Londell McMillan, a special adviser to Prince's estate, which was organizing the tribute show when it was scheduled for the U.S. Bank Stadium. It's unclear whether or not there's a connection between Mayer's disappearance and the venue change to the Xcel Energy center. Read more here.

U2 Hope To Release New Album Next Spring

(hennemusic) U2 bassist Adam Clayton says the band are currently working on their new album, and hoping to release the effort, the follow-up to 2014's "Songs Of Innocence", next spring.

"We've been working on a record and we've been humming and hawing on whether it's finished or not," Clayton tells RTE's Shay Byrne. "We've decided it's not finished - we're going to work up until Christmas.

"I wish we were a little bit more definite about our scheduling because people have been expecting it, "but it'll be out next year, maybe March/April. That's the plan, but I'm not confirming it."

U2 originally aimed to have the project - rumoured to be titled "Songs Of Experience" - ready for 2016, but they continue to actively record new material while reportedly sifting through as many as 50 songs for possible inclusion.

Billboard reports Bono revealed this past summer that U2 will support the album with live dates in the second half of 2017. Listen to the full interview here.

Carrie Underwood Releases 'Dirty Laundry' Video

(Radio.com) Country music star Carrie Underwood has premiered the music video for her new single "Dirty Laundry." The new black and white clip was directly by Shane C. Drake.

"I really connected with Shane's artistic vision for the video," said Underwood in a statement. "It's all about emotion and that moment when a woman has finally reached that point, after the heartache, of being done with a relationship."

"Shane had the idea to include some beautiful animals that represent the parallels between human and animal behavior and instincts, which look great interwoven with visuals of emotional women and men," she continued. "It gave us a way to portray one of my songs in a way we've never done before."

"'Dirty Laundry' is about a cheating man--the girl in the story kind of talks about stringing up his laundry, getting rid of his laundry, that's how she finds out he's been cheating on her," Underwood tells ET from the video set. "That's not a new story, you know, lipstick on your collar kind of story, but it's just done in a such a nonchalant way. It's not too angry, it's not, 'I'm gonna get revenge!' It's not 'Before He Cheats,' it's more like, 'You know what? I'm over it, I don't care, I'm done.'" Watch the video here.

Elton John Working On 'No-Holds-Barred' Autobiography

(Radio.com) Elton John's 'no-holds-barred" as-yet-untitled memoir is in the works after the music star landed a publishing deal. Publishers Pan Macmillan and Henry Holt announced Thursday (Oct. 13) that they have jointly acquired worldwide rights for the autobiography, reports The New York Times.

A representative for Holt said the company had won out over two other publishers after representatives for each traveled to Atlanta to meet with Mr. John and his husband, David Furnish. The terms of the deal were undisclosed.

"I'm not prone to being a nostalgic person," John said in a statement. "I'm often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It's come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs.

"As I look back, I realize what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living… My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and it's still lumbering on." Read more here.

The band was part of a lineup including Beartooth, Fit For a King and Old Wounds.It was no coincidence that the often crooning Panic! frontman stood toe-to-toe and traded verses with ETID's Keith Buckley.

Urie not only contributed vocals to "It Remembers," from their new album Low Teens, but he also played a sinister role in the hard rock band's video for the track. Watch the jam here.

KISS Should Not Reunite Says Anthrax's Scott Ian

(Classic Rock) Scott Ian says he doesn't agree with Kiss fans who continue to call for Ace Frehley and Peter Criss to return. The Anthrax guitarist and lifelong Kiss fan says he trusts Kiss mainmen Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons to make the right decisions for the band.

Guitarist Frehley was replaced by Tommy Thayer while Eric Singer is in the drum stool formerly occupied by Criss. And though he thinks Frehley could still cut it with Kiss, he is not so sure Criss still has what it takes.

Ian tells 99 Rock (via Blabbermouth): "As a fan, I would love to see Ace Frehley play one more time in Kiss. And I'm gonna be completely honest, and this is no knock on Peter, but the last time I saw them with Peter, on the Kiss/Aerosmith run, like 13 years ago, the tempos were terrible.

"Everything was just way too slow. So if that's the case, no, I don't wanna see that. I wanna see stuff played at the right tempo. If Peter could play it at the right tempo, then more power to him and I would love to see that. Of course I would.

"But it's not my band. It's Gene and Paul's band and those guys know what's right for their band. They've proven it. Stop questioning Gene and Paul." Read more and listen to the full interview here.

Kid Cudi's Self-Directed 'The Frequency' Video Released

(Radio.com) Last week, Kid Cudi announced that he'd seek treatment for depression and suicidal urges, initiating a groundswell of support from fans and rap peers. While Cudi is off getting the help he needs, his team released a video for "The Frequency," which the rapper directed himself.

The dark, lush backdrops and female figures deliver a combination of the Garden of Eden and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil for a hectic, ominous effect.

"The Frequency" is the latest track from Cudi's delayed forthcoming album Passion, Pain & Demon Slaying, and its video captures all three emotions in the album title. If anything positive comes of the rapper's personal struggles, it's his ability to leverage dark and tortured feelings into resonant art. Check out the video here.

Pusha T Releases Alleged New Drake Diss Track

(Radio.com) Pusha T's new track "H.G.T.V." takes a shot at rappers whose originality, authenticity, and talent aren't strong enough to keep them in the game for long.

In the first verse he declares (in defense of Desiigner), "Don't listen to 'em 'Desiigner/The same rappers talkin' next year will be Uber drivers." Later on, the rapper makes a sideways reference to long-simmering rumors that Drake's lyrics are composed by a ghostwriter:

"It's too far gone when the realest ain't real/ I walk amongst the clouds so your ceilings ain't real/ These n—-s Call of Duty cause their killings ain't real/ With a questionable pen so the feelin' ain't real," he raps.

Pusha T doesn't name names but you could cut the animosity with a knife.Watch the explicit video for "H.G.T.V." here.

Kelsea Ballerini Celebrates Hitting No. 1 With 'Peter Pan'

(Radio.com) Kelsea Ballerini just celebrated her third consecutive No. 1 country song, "Peter Pan," with a party at a Nashville airplane hangar on Wednesday, reports The Tennessean.

Against a backdrop of private planes and blue sky, Ballerini, her band and co-writers performed "Peter Pan" for a room full of friends, family and Music Row executives. The country star wrote the song with Forest Glen Whitehead and Jesse Lee.

"I think that people who haven't experienced that kind of heartbreak yet like (the song) because it's a story that everyone knows," Ballerini said of the song. "It's the story of Peter Pan. It's the classic fairy tale. But for people who have experienced it, it's a kind of heartbreak that not a lot of people talk about."

Ballerini is the first female country singer to have her first three radio singles--all of which she co-wrote--go to No. 1. "As a creative person, I think the biggest thing you can do for another creative person is share your creativity," she said. "This is one of the songs I'm most proud to have written. I wanted it be special and magical and it was." Read more here.

Coshish and Rainburn Lead Progworks On Wheels

(Prog) Indian prog rock bands Coshish and Rainburn will headline Progworks On Wheels, India's very first progressive rock festival, which takes to the road this Friday.

The brainchild of Rainburn guitarist Vats Iyengar and Coma Rossi vocalist Suman Chalamcharia, the Progworks On Wheels festival will run through New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad. Coshes and Rainburn will appear on all nights but they will be supported by local acts at each venue. it follows on from the one-day Progworks concert held last year featuring Coshish and Baiju Dharmajan Syndicate.

"I thought we would do a bigger one-day festival for Progworks and the other idea was to have a longer tour with Coshish. Now they've merged both," Iyengar told Rolling Stone India. It was Iyengar and Chalamcharia's realisation India had heavy metal and alternative festivals, but nothing for their homegrown progressive acts that prompted the pair to act, enlisting Bangalore-based co-promoter Ramakrishnan Krishnan to make the whole event happen.

Singled Out: Chris Bowen's Picture

Chris Bowen recently released his new single "Picture" from his debut album "Kings and Queens" and to celebrate we asked him to tell us the story behind the track. Here is the story:

I had recently been on an emotional roller coaster with a previous band having worked with industry leader, Gabe Vigorito of the old 80's indie label DeLite Records, before his passing.

As the project phased out, I'd kept in touch with the people I'd met from the journey. I got a call from my booking agent and producer/engineer Jim Bonnefond (Jimmy Cliff/Kool 'n the Gang/Savage Garden) about an idea that they wanted to run with. As we were bouncing verses off each other for the direction of the song, it began taking a nebulous soft pop reggae feel. We started composing and watched it morph into more rock than reggae!

I'm a rock guitar guy; every other music iteration I've been involved with I've played lead. I kept adding my influence to the song in a quiet way until it was where I wanted it to be (sneaky). =)

We kicked off the recording process and I ended up traveling across the Northeast (or at least that's how it felt) to finally record the version you hear today with producer Brian Sargent (Brewhouse Records/Aberrant Sound). We stripped out, tore down, and rebuilt the idea into a more cohesive story of perseverance and courage regarding abusive relationships. We've all
been there or have helped friends and loved ones through emotionally toxic situations; sometimes all you can do is point out the facts and get them through it. The person causing the pain…well, karma usually does a number on them as the lyrics, "Your friends have gone away and so I see you've hit rock bottom…you know it ain't right, now you're all alone tonight."

My goal is to provide the listener with a relatable subject overpowered by a positive message: you're better than this and you'll make it through.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
