Rolling Stones Share Previously Unreleased 'Come To The Ball'

Rolling Stones Share Previously Unreleased 'Come To The Ball'

The Rolling Stones recently shared a previously unreleased track "Come To The Ball" from their just released 40th anniversary deluxe reissue of the 1981 album Tattoo You.

"Come To The Ball," one of nine new tracks on the Lost & Found: Rarities disc, was co-written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

40 years after its original release, Tattoo You returns with an all-new 2021 master, alongside 9 new unheard tracks and bonus live cuts. Tattoo You (40th Anniversary) deluxe edition is a celebration of one of the Stones most iconic albums, which also includes monster hits "Start Me Up" and "Waiting On A Friend" alongside all-time fan favorites like "Black Limousine" and "Heaven."

Tattoo You deluxe edition is available on deluxe LP & CD (featuring the classic album & unheard tracks), limited edition clear vinyl & picture disc (both exclusive to the Stones store), and immersive 4CD and 5LP boxsets. The 4CD boxset also includes a limited edition Keith Richards Picture Disc, an expansive book charting the history of the album and a very special lenticular version of the classic artwork.

My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way Reveals 'Welcome To The Black Parade' Almost Cut From Third Album

My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way Reveals 'Welcome To The Black Parade' Almost Cut From Third Album

My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way said in a recent interview that their signature hit "Welcome to the Black Parade" almost didn't make The Black Parade album's final cut.

Way revealed this while reflecting on the album's 15th anniversary during an interview with Travis Mills on Apple Music 1 on Wednesday (October 20).

Way explained that the song was "the hardest one to finish" and needed to be "deconstructed and kind of broken in order to rebuild it into something better" before it was included on the final tracklist.

"Originally, that song was called 'The Five of Us Are Dying'," Way told Mills. "We played it and we really liked it, and I had felt that we needed that one song on the record, that touchstone that kind of introduces your concept, and the lyrics and the themes of that song kind of embody the themes of the record."

Way said that although the band liked the song, he was struggling to connect to it personally, and it appeared as though it wouldn't make it to the album. "All the other songs had really strong themes and titles and things like that," he said.

"But we didn't want to just give up on the song, so then I started to bring the concept into the musical side of things, where I was like, 'I want to call this 'Black Parade', I want there to be a parade on the record', and we started breaking the song and reconstructing it."

Way said he then wrote the piano melody that opens the song, adding, "Once we re-approached it from the perspective of starting with a completely new introduction and a new way to start the song, it helped us fix the rest of it."

"Anytime it got brought up before we started breaking it, any time it kind of got brought up, especially by my AR, Craig Aaronson, I would just kind of shoo him away about it and be like, 'Yeah, that song's about nothing. I'm not interested in that one.'"

The band eventually included the song on the album and even released it as the record's first single in 2006.

Slash Drops 'The River Is Rising' From Upcoming Album

Slash has dropped a new single with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, titled "The River Is Rising," from his upcoming album, 4.

"The River Is Rising" marks the first collaboration between Slash and Kennedy and the Conspirators since their 2018 album Living the Dream.

4 is set to release on February 11, via Gibson Records in partnership with BMG. 4 is Slash's fifth solo album and fourth overall with his band featuring Kennedy, Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns and Frank Sidoris.

Slash had teased the song on social media with a 30-second trailer in which he discussed the song's recording process.

"This was the first time that we actually did all the guitars, bass and drums live at the same time and kept all those tracks, and we also did the vocals live as well," Slash said in the video. "So the record just sounds like the band playing the songs that we came in with, but it's us playing in the moment, and that's what we were going for."

Kennedy added, "This one's pretty much a live record, from my standpoint. You're just trying to kind of document where you are at that point in life and do it in an authentic way."

Zakk Wylde Opens Up About Playing Rhythm Guitar With 'Heroes' On New Ozzy Album

Zakk Wylde has revealed it was an "honor" to play rhythm guitar with his "heroes" on Ozzy Osbourne's upcoming new album.

The Black Sabbath legend had recently confirmed that 15 songs have been recorded for his upcoming follow-up to 2020's Ordinary Man album. The album is being produced by Andrew Watt, and will feature guest appearances by Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Wylde.

Speaking to Music Radar, Wylde said, "The new Ozzy stuff is sounding great. And for sure, it's an honor to play on a record with all my heroes. It's pretty cool. I can't wait for everyone to hear it. I've always loved 'Blow By Blow' and 'Wired', but honestly, every record Jeff Beck has put out is amazing."

"It definitely sounds slamming," he added. "The same goes for all the guys - what Tony Iommi played, and then Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, it's all killer for sure. On those tracks I'm playing rhythm guitar for my heroes. it's crazy! It sounds awesome and I'm beyond honoured to be doing it."

Earlier this month, Ozzy told Metal Hammer that his new album will be "similar in tone to Ordinary Man, but I can't describe it completely. I've not heard it for a while because it keeps going over to the next person to add their parts - we're f*cking around with it all the time."

AC/DC Share Nostalgic 'Through The Mists Of Time' Video

AC/DC Share Nostalgic 'Through The Mists Of Time' Video

AC/DC recently released a nostalgic music video for "Through the Mists of Time," the latest single from their 2020 album, Power Up.

The video, which originated from a concept from Angus Young, was directed by Najeeb Tarazi. It features footage shot by Clemens Habicht of each of the five band members in five separate shoots around the world. Josh Cheuse is the creative director of the visual.

In addition to the band's impressive archive of music videos, performance clips from "Shot in the Dark," "Witch's Spell," and "Realize" also feature in the visual.

Tarazi and Cheuse got Paris-based visual effect studio Mathematic's support to combine the elements in order to "take the stage together to perform." It gives the effect of AC/DC literally playing a concert through the mists of time.

The video ends with a regal image featuring seven past and present band members - Bon Scott, singer Brian Johnson, drummer Phil Rudd, bassist Cliff Williams, guitarists Angus and Stevie Young - on a Sistine Chapel-like painted ceiling.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced a 2022 world stadium tour through a hilarious comedic sketch.

On Friday, September 24, the band revealed that they have teamed up with Live Nation for a world tour next year.

In the video, the members of the band are seen dressed in comically absurd wigs and sweater-vests in what appears to be a promotional video for the fictional news station, "KHOT."

The nearly-3-minute video, now with over a half-million views on YouTube, features Johnson Hammerswaddle (Anthony Kiedis) and Todd the Squirrel (Flea) as the anchors for the station, who open the clip by rattling off a series of fake news pieces, including the falling price of beer nuts, celebrities caught in a nose-picking scandal, and predictions for how half of humanity would "boil to death by next Thursday."

The pair then invite onto the interview portion of the show, guitarist John Frusciante, who rejoined the band in December of 2019.

"Yeah, we're gonna do a tour starting in June of 2022," he reveals when asked about upcoming tour plans, upon hearing which the two hosts absolutely lose their minds and run around screaming in excitement.

In the clip, Frusciante also shared that the U.S leg of the show is slated to kick off in July of 2022.

More information about dates, sales details, and supporting acts is expected to be released in the coming months.

Hard rock legends Guns N' Roses dropped a new song, "Hard Skool," on Thursday, September 23.

Released in conjunction with the band's kick-off performance of the North American leg of their world tour at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio, the new song arrives alongside a 30-second visualizer featuring a bright red high school locker door, onto which are graffitied on the words "Guns N' Roses was here" in all caps along with a sticker bearing the title of the song.

The song, previously referred to by its working title, "Jackie Chan" is only their second release in several months, and follows the track "Absurd," both of which are remastered versions of previously unreleased tracks that were originally produced during the band's 2008 Chinese Democracy era.

Tom Morello, Bring Me The Horizon Join Forces On 'Let's Get The Party Started'

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has teamed up with Bring Me The Horizon for a brand-new single, "Let's Get The Party Started."

Taken from Morello's forthcoming solo album, The Atlas Underground Fire, the song was co-penned by Morello, BMTH frontman Oli Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish.

Produced by Evil Twin & Zakk Cervini, the song arrives on the heels of Morello's cover of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" featuring Eddie Vedder and Bruce Springsteen.

"'Cause I'm going off the deep end, yeah, I'm drowning inside / And it doesn't feel important if I'm dead or I'm alive / Feeling fifty shades of f-ed up, going out of my mind / I don't wanna face my demons so let's get the party started," Sykes belts out in the chorus of the track.

"Bring Me the Horizon is really the current standard bearer of hard rock/metal today, and thank God for them for that," Morello shared in a statement. "I had a couple of huge riffs and we just started mashing it up with Zakk Cervini, who has worked with them before. This song was written on three continents - Oli was in Brazil, Jordan was in England and then I was here in L.A."

Morello's new collection is slated for release on October 15, 2021.

KISS Biopic To Focus On Early Years, Longtime Manager Says

KISS Biopic To Focus On Early Years, Longtime Manager Says

The upcoming KISS biopic Shout It Out Loud will focus on the rock band's first four years, according to longtime manager Doc McGhee.

"The script is about the first four years of KISS. Basically, it's before they were famous - it was up to Cadillac High, that kind of thing," McGhee said in an interview with Talking Metal. " And I think it's a very interesting look at the formation of KISS, the mindset of how that came about, the social pressure that everybody was in in the '60s and '70s that brought something like KISS to the forefront, that it could actually happen. So it's a very interesting, and I think it's a well-written movie."

McGhee said that Ole Sanders has completed the biopic's script writing. Casting for the movie is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

The movie focuses on the original and best-known KISS lineup that consists of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss in their 20s.

Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Ronning will be Shout It Out Loud's director. The movie will have a theatrical release, followed by Netflix streaming.

Rush's Geddy Lee To Release Memoir In Fall 2022

A memoir written by Rush lead vocalist and bassist Geddy Lee will be published in the Fall of 2022.

In a lengthy social media post, Lee said he started writing the yet untitled book as he was struggling in the aftermath of drummer Neil Peart's death, "locked down for over a year and a half - the longest time I'd spent in Toronto," during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Describing the difficult writing process, Lee said his "baby-step stories were becoming grownup chapters."

"I'd write and re-write them, reassessing perspectives in the narrative not just by scouring my memory banks but my diaries and piles of photo albums too. I was piecing together a mystery of a different kind," he added.

Lee said his friend and collaborator on the "Big Beautiful Book of Bass," Daniel Richler helped him refine his written matter.

The untitled memoir, edited by Noah Eaker, will be published by HarperCollins.

Queen's Roger Taylor Shares 'The Clapping Song' From Upcoming Solo Album

Queen's Roger Taylor Shares 'The Clapping Song' From Upcoming Solo Album

Queen drummer Roger Taylor has released a cover of the 1965 classic "The Clapping Song," which is featured on his upcoming solo album Outsider.

"The Clapping Song" stands out as the only track not written by Taylor on Outsider, which is set for release on October 1.

A surprise upbeat note to an album of self-introspection and reflective observation, it allows Taylor to let loose on a track that obviously left a mark on his youthful years.

To lend his version of "The Clapping Song" a deliciously retro analogue feel, Taylor used a vintage Trixon Telstar drum kit.

Speaking about his cover of "The Clapping Song," Taylor said, "I love the track and I just wanted to do my own version of it. It's such a nice, cool song. I hope I get some of the fabulous atmosphere of the original."

Taylor and his band will christen the album in grand style with a 14-date U.K. tour beginning at Newcastle's O2 Academy on October 2. The tour will conclude at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on October 22.

Bring Me The Horizon Share Oli Sykes-Directed Video For 'DiE4u'

Bring Me The Horizon Share Oli Sykes-Directed Video For 'DiE4u'

Bring Me The Horizon have released a gruesome video for their latest single, "DiE4u."

Directed by the band's frontman Oliver Sykes, the video features the band as they headline a club that appears to be run by an underground cult of blood-thirsty vampires.

Sykes described the central themes of the song to be "toxic obsessions, vices and things you can't kick," which heavily relates to the dope-fueled imagery used in the video, in which all hell breaks loose after a drug dealer snakes her way through the club and attempts to negotiate the price of a set of vials of what one can only assume to be blood infused with psychedelic substances.

"The song is a triumphant and emotional one for me because it was a time of realisation to kick the things that were no good, and to take the choice in bettering myself," Sykes continued. "It also connects to a deeper theme about us as a society, and how we need to look at the way we treat ourselves, each other as well as the world."

"weLCoME t0 clUB h3LLh0LE....#DiE4u," the band wrote in the comments of the video, which has amassed nearly 1.5 million views since its release last week.

"DiE4u" is taken from the band's forthcoming, as-yet-untitled EP set for release in 2022.

Judge Dismisses Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson Over Statute Of Limitations

Judge Dismisses Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson Over Statute Of Limitations

A Los Angeles judge has dismissed a sexual abuse lawsuit against Marilyn Manson, saying the accuser's claims are "not sufficient to invoke the delayed discovery rule" as the statute of limitations period has lapsed.

According to court documents, the judge ruled that the woman's complaint "alleges neither when the repression began - such as immediately after the events took place, or outside the limitations period - nor its nature or extent, such as what memories were repressed or the extent to which Plaintiff was prevented from recalling them."

The woman (listed as Jane Doe) had alleged that Manson raped and sexually abused her multiple times during their relationship in 2011 but claimed repressed memories of the incident stopped her from reporting the incident then.

The court has now given the woman 20 days to refile the lawsuit and address the judge's concerns.

"The judge thoughtfully analyzed the case law, and rightfully held that her case can go forward, so long as she amends her Complaint to add some additional details," the woman's attorneys Adam Wolf and Tracey Cowan told PEOPLE.

"We intend to amend with those additional details very shortly, and look forward to the opportunity to make Manson answer for his actions," the statement read.

Manson previously responded by calling the woman's claims "horrible distortions of reality."
