Noel Gallagher Says Glastonbury Getting 'A Bit Woke,' 'Kind Of Preachy'

Noel Gallagher Says Glastonbury Getting 'A Bit Woke,' 'Kind Of Preachy'

Noel Gallagher says the Glastonbury festival is getting "a bit woke now" and "kind of preachy."

Speaking to The Sun, the former Oasis guitarist said, "Don't get me wrong, I f---ing love Glastonbury. It's getting a bit woke now, that place, and a bit kind of preachy and a bit virtue-signaling. I don't like it in music - little f---ing idiots waving flags around and making political statements and bands taking the stage and saying, 'Hey guys, isn't war ­terrible, yeah? Let's all boo war. F--- the Tories man,' and all that. It's like, look - play your f---ing tunes and get off."

Gallagher regularly attends Glastonbury as a festivalgoer, including this year's event, and made his solo performance debut there in 2022 fronting Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

"It's too much. Donate all your money to the cause - that's it, stop yapping about it," he continued. "Let's just say for instance the world is in a bit of a f---ed up place and you're all in a field in Glastonbury. What's the problem with that? I haven't got a problem with it. I guess if you're 18 and you're middle class you might have a problem with it. but what's all the kids in a field at Glastonbury going to do about it?"

Yungblud Shares Powerful New Single 'Breakdown'

Yungblud Shares Powerful New Single 'Breakdown'

Yungblud recently shared a powerful new single, "Breakdown," in support of mental health charities.

The musician has committed to donate £1 (up to £25,000) to the charities Mind and Sound Mind Live for every use of the song's CapCut template.

"I wrote this song because it's been the hardest year for me mentally," Yungblud said. "I feel myself changing and throughout my life I've never felt good enough, it's been the main thing that on the one hand has driven me forward but on the other, has eaten me up. For as long as I can remember I have felt constantly afraid of how quickly my head can turn dark."

"It's always been so hard to fight the darkness that I inevitably have. A lot of people will say it's a phase and it will go away. But it doesn't and the reality of the situation is I have to find strategies to deal with it," he added.

Meanwhile, Yungblud is set to headline his own Bludfest at Milton Keynes Bowl on August 11. The genre-spanning bill features Lil Yachty, Soft Play, Nessa Barrett, The Damned, Lola Young, Jazmin Bean, Noahfinnce, Jesse Jo Stark, Landon Barker, Hannah Grae, and Aziya, with many more acts still to be announced.

Scorpions Biopic 'Wind Of Change' In The Works

Scorpions Biopic 'Wind Of Change' In The Works

A biopic on German rock icons Scorpions, titled Wind of Change, is in the works from ESX Entertainment.

According to Deadline, Ali Afshar's ESX Entertainment has signed on to develop and produce the musical biopic Wind of Change, which will tell the story of "three unlikely friends whose passion for rock n' roll fueled their rise from the ashes of post-World War II Germany to the global stardom in the 1980s as the multi-platinum rock band Scorpions."

"The Scorpions' music has penetrated our culture in a big way," Afshar tells Deadline. "There is an evocative quality to their sound that is unmatched in the genre, which is one of the reasons hits like 'Rock You Like a Hurricane' and 'Still Loving You' continue to get so much airplay and fill movie soundtracks, and their music continues to connect with a new generation of fans across the globe."

Production on Wind of Change is expected to begin in Europe later this year, with a planned 2025 release, which will also be the band's 60th anniversary.

The movie's title comes from the band's 1991 global hit single, which was released after the failed coup that would lead to the end of the Soviet Union.

"The idea that a soldier can fight the good fight. A warrior against war."

The Tragically Hip To Reissue Debut Album 'Up To Here' As Deluxe Box Set

The Tragically Hip have announced plans to release a commemorative box set of their debut album, Up To Here, the latest installment of special deluxe packages, on November 8 via UMe.

Up to Here was released in September 1989. It is one of the band's most successful albums, achieving Diamond status in Canada for sales of over a million copies, earning the band a Juno Award for Most Promising Artist, and also introducing fan-favorite songs such as "Blow at High Dough," "New Orleans Is Sinking," and "Boots or Hearts."

Queen Catalog Reportedly To Be Acquired By Sony Music For Over $1 Billion

Queen Catalog Reportedly To Be Acquired By Sony Music For Over $1 Billion

Queen have reportedly agreed to sell their recording, publishing and other rights to Sony Music for a record-smashing $1.27 billion.

According to Hits, the deal also includes name and likeness rights, potentially opening the door to musicals, commercial and film placements, merchandising and other money-making opportunities.

Complicating the deal is the fact that Disney Music Group owns Queen's recorded music catalog in North America, which it acquired at some point in the 2000s.

Disney and Universal Music Group will permanently retain the rights to distribute Queen's records in North America, but the band's share of the royalties will now go to Sony Music.

For the rest of the world, those rights are expected to transfer from current owners UMG to Sony Music in either 2026 or 2027.

According to Variety, the only revenue not covered in the deal is for live performances, which founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, who still actively tour with singer Adam Lambert, will retain. Bassist John Deacon retired shortly after the 1991 death of founding singer Freddie Mercury.

The band's 2018 autobiographical film Bohemian Rhapsody earned over $900 million worldwide.

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Has 'Zero Respect' For Imagine Dragons After Azerbaijan Show

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Has 'Zero Respect' For Imagine Dragons After Azerbaijan Show

In a new interview with Metal Hammer, System Of A Down's Serj Tankian said he has "zero respect" for Imagine Dragons, because the band ignored his concerns and went on to perform in Azerbaijan.

"I have zero respect for those guys. They're not good human beings," Tankian said. "If you are that blind to justice that you will go play a show in a country that's starving another country, illegally... I don't know what to say about you as a human being."

In a letter to Imagine Dragons last summer, Tankian asked them to reconsider playing a show in Baku, arguing that playing there could be viewed as an endorsement of Azerbaijan's authoritarian President Ilham Aliyerv. He wrote that proceeding with the gig at Baku Olympic Stadium "would help whitewash the dictatorial regime's image."

"I really feel that performing in Azerbaijan would have a negative impact on your brand as well," the singer cautioned in the letter. "I'm confident that you can decipher all the facts for yourselves to decide whether to cancel your concert."

Tankian told Metal Hammer that he was disappointed and angry about Imagine Dragon's decision to ignore all entreaties on the issue.

"I don't know these guys, but who are these people?" he says. "I don't understand that type of thinking."

David Gilmour recently shared a new single, "Between Two Points," featuring his daughter Romany Gilmour.

The song arrived with an accompanying video, which was shot on location in London and Manchester, with David on guitars and featuring Romany on vocals and harp.

The song is from Gilmour's upcoming record, Luck and Strange, which is due out on September 6th via Sony Music.

"I've had that song on my playlist since it was released," Gilmour said about "Between Two Points," a reworking of The Montgolfier Brothers' 1999 song. "More recently I mentioned it to one or two people: I assumed that it had been a hit, but no one knew it. I asked Romany to give it a go. I realized that Romany has exactly the right sort of vulnerability and youth for the song."

The Offspring Share Lyric Video For New Single 'Make It All Right'

The Offspring Share Lyric Video For New Single 'Make It All Right'

The Offspring recently released a lyric video for "Make It All Right," the first single from their upcoming eleventh album, Supercharged.

Supercharged is due out on October 11th via Concord Records.

The animated visual shows a pair of motorcycle riders traveling through an apocalyptic desert wasteland, with the lyrics of the song flying across the screen.

The lyrics of "Make It All Right" talk about having your "partner in crime" by your side, to make you feel confident that you can do everything right. The lyrics go like this, "And you make it all right, And it's gonna be fine, We're like partners in crime, And you make it all right."

The Offspring singer Bryan "Dexter" Holland said about the album, "We wanted this record to have pure energy - from the start to the finish! That's why we called it 'Supercharged'. From the height of our aspirations to the depths of our struggles, we talk about it all on this record.in a way that celebrates the life that we share and where we are now. Our single 'Make It All Right' is a great example of this because it talks about the people in our lives who make us feel strong when we are feeling low - our partners in crime who make us feel all right."

He continued, "The album was recorded in three different locations this time: Maui, Vancouver, and our home studio in Huntington Beach, and together with our producer Bob Rock everything came out awesome. I feel like this is the best we have ever sounded! We've been rocking out and headbanging to it for months! And we can't wait for you guys to hear it!"

R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. played "Losing My Religion" at the Songwriters Hall of Fame gala in New York on Thursday (June 13), performing live for the first time in more than 15 years.

In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, R.E.M. had said it would take a comet for the Georgia foursome - Michael Stipe, Mike Mills, Bill Berry and Peter Buck - to reunite.

Jason Isbell, who inducted R.E.M. into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, said, "The songs they created served a real purpose for kids like me growing up in a small southern town. Somebody out there reluctantly clawing their way into the mainstream who was just as strange and out of place and time as I was. R.E.M. was greater than the sum of its parts. R.E.M. moved like a single instrument."

Isbell also paid tribute to the band by covering "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)."

"Writing songs and having a catalog of work that we're all proud of that is out there for the rest of the world for all time is hands-down the most important aspect of what we did. Second to that is that we managed to do so all those decades and remain friends. And not just friends, dear friends," Stipe said.

"We are four people that very early on decided that we would own our own masters and we would split our royalties and songwriting credits equally," he continued. "All for one and one for all."

The band's last full concert was in November 2008 in Mexico City.

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson Announces Announces New Single 'Resurrection Men'

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson has announced a new solo single, "Resurrection Men," due out July 26th via BMG. "The surf guitar at the intro - the Dick Dale bit - that's me!" explains Dickinson about "Resurrection Men." "We were just mucking around with the tremolo setting, we put the chords down and I went, 'Ok, that's kinda cool!' It was like, 'What if Quentin Tarantino made a metal record?'" he adds. "Then it goes somewhere different, we get a bit heavy, and we did this whole middle section and it was like, 'Were you just channeling Geezer Butler in another life?' It was early Sabbath - Behind the Wall of Sleep. Just, 'Oh my god that's heavy!'"

The three-track CD comes in a gatefold digi-sleeve and includes a limited number of double-sided Mandrake Movie Posters with pre-orders via the official Mandrake Project store, reflecting the comic book artwork for Episode 3 which will be released via Z2 comics on July 17th.

The two CD bonus songs, "Afterglow Of Ragnarok" and "Abduction," were recorded live at Dickinson's show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 4, 2024, as part of his current world tour for The Mandrake Project.
