Noel Gallagher Partners With Gibson To Release Limited Edition Custom Guitars

Noel Gallagher Partners With Gibson To Release Limited Edition Custom Guitars

Noel Gallagher has teamed up with Gibson to release a limited, 20-unit '78 Les Paul Custom guitar series.

Twenty Noel Gallagher '78 Les Paul Custom guitars will only be available in-person to attendees on the official opening day of the new Gibson Garage London, on Saturday, February 24th.

Gallagher and Gibson will donate all profit from the sales of this special run of guitars to support the charity Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Noel Gallagher '78 Custom Les Paul guitars are inspired by the guitar originally given to Noel by Johnny Marr and was used extensively for both live performances and recording sessions with Oasis, most notably in the video for the song "Whatever."

These '78 Les Paul Custom guitars will feature a lightly aged Ebony finish by the Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab and each guitar is hand-signed by Noel Gallagher.

"The Les Paul Custom that Johnny gave me in 1994 was always one of my favourite guitars, and it carries a lot of history. The reissues are great, they feel almost identical. I am delighted they are being sold to support the Teenage Cancer Trust," says Gallagher.

"As Gibson continues the relationship with Noel Gallagher there is no better way to start 2024 than by supporting a truly amazing cause that is close to both our hearts and minds," says Lee Bartram, Head of Marketing, EU and UK, Gibson Brands. "We have worked closely with The Teenage Cancer Trust for many years, and it's always an honor and privilege to support them in raising much needed funds and awareness for the work they do."

I am still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; the important thing is to persevere and remind myself of the wonderful career I've had in music."

Jones thanked all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years.

The 79 year-old founder of Foreigner has not been taking part in the rock band's live concerts since 2022.

Foo Fighters To Headline Power To The Patients Concert In Washington, D.C.

Foo Fighters are set to headline the Power To The Patients concert In Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, March 5.

Foo Fighters will perform at the private concert in Washington hosted by Power to the Patients, a non-profit fighting for a more affordable, accessible, and equitable healthcare system through price transparency. Veteran rappers Fat Joe and Chuck D will also be in attendance.

"When we were asked by Power to the Patients to help raise awareness of the need for transparency in healthcare pricing, we immediately said yes.

With lawmakers, government officials, and their dedicated staff in attendance, Foo Fighters will join the drive to raise awareness about the inequality and uncertainty created for millions of patients when hospitals and insurers hide actual upfront prices, according to a statement.

"You got Don Felder opening up the whole evening with nothing but Eagles hits - 'Hotel California,' 'Life in the Fast Lane.' And then Dee Snider comes on stage with his hits and joins and Lou Gramm singing all the great Foreigner stuff - I can't even count the amount of hits - and then Chris and eventually by the end of the night we pick out some songs we can all do together and make it, again as I said last year, a celebration of all the fans, the bands, the music - everybody in the building," he added.

Kanye West Removes Black Sabbath Sample Following Ozzy Osbourne Criticism

Kanye West Removes Black Sabbath Sample Following Ozzy Osbourne Criticism

Kanye West removed a sample of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" on his new album after receiving backlash from Ozzy Osbourne and his wife and manager Sharon.

Ozzy lashed out at Ye on social media, claiming the rapper used a recording of the song without his permission and against his wishes. The rapper finally released the song "Carnival" from Vultures 1 without the sample.

Last Friday, Osbourne posted the following message on social media: "Kanye West asked permission to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of 'Iron Man' from the Us festival without vocals & was refused permission because he is an antisemite and has caused untold heartache to many. He went ahead and used the sample anyway at his album listening party last night. I want no association with this man!"

Later on Friday, Sharon said she was exploring options to resolve the matter. "We are considering legal action," she said in a statement. "Ozzy has not spoken to Kanye but our team have spoken with theirs."

Pearl Jam Announce New Album 'Dark Matter,' Share Powerful Title Track

Pearl Jam Announce New Album 'Dark Matter,' Share Powerful Title Track

Pearl Jam have announced a new album, called Dark Matter, and shared its powerful title track.

The rock band's twelfth studio album will be released on Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on April 19.

Dark Matter was produced by Grammy award winning producer Andrew Watt and is the band's first release since Gigaton. The album is now available for pre-order at https://pearljam.lnk.to/DMpreorder.

In 2023, the band retreated to Shangri-La Studios in Malibu where they simply plugged in and played under the watch of producer Andrew Watt. Writing and recording in a burst of inspiration, Dark Matter was born in just three weeks.

As a result, Dark Matter channels the shared spirit of a group of lifelong creative confidants and brothers in one room playing as if their very lives depended on it.

The album's packaging features light painting art by Alexandr Gnezdilov. The album's cover art was crafted using a large self-made kaleidoscope. Each letter visible on the cover was individually captured and handwritten midair with a specially designed flashlight to create the pearlescent effect.

Pearl Jam will release a special edition of Dark Matter on April 20 as part of Record Store Day at participating stores. To get more information and find stores, visit www.recordstoreday.com

The Struts Share 'How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)'

The Struts recently released a new single, "How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)."

The romantic song, which drops just before Valentine's Day, follows the release of the British band's fourth studio album, Pretty Vicious, in November.

"'How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)' is a brutally honest song that takes me right back to that moment when the phrase came to me," frontman Luke Spiller says.

"It has a Rod Stewart vibe to it, which is definitely something we haven't done before," he adds. "I also adore the backing vocal section, which has a Fleetwood Mac feel that's never a bad thing. The lyric was laboured over for a long time, which I hope people will appreciate."

The band released their most recent album, Ego Trip, on their own label New Noize Records in 2022.

"Since the pandemic started, we really pushed ourselves and believed that we controlled our own destiny," frontman Jacoby Shaddix said in a statement to Billboard. "We started our own label, hired the right teams, and have found an excellent niche in social media where our music, our personalities, and our fans meet. A full-service company that understands our vision & can help us navigate this growth in the multi-media landscape is essential. Next year will bring a lot of surprises!"

Deep Purple To Release 'Super Deluxe Edition' Of 'Machine Head'

Deep Purple To Release 'Super Deluxe Edition' Of 'Machine Head'

Deep Purple are set to release a "Super Deluxe Edition" of their 1972 album, Machine Head.

Warner Records and Rhino Entertainment will release Machine Head: Super Deluxe Edition on March 29 as a 3-CD/LP/Blu-ray.

Featuring new mixes and previously unreleased live recordings, the comprehensive version is available to pre-order at https://rhino.lnk.to/MachineHeadDeluxe

Highlighting the collection are several different versions of the album, including new stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes by Dweezil Zappa. The 1974 quadraphonic mix and a newly remastered version of the original album are also featured in the "Super Deluxe Edition."

Zappa's newly remixed stereo version of "Smoke On The Water," a song dubbed the Beethoven's 5th of hard rock, is available to listen at https://rhino.lnk.to/SmokeOnWaterStr.

The "Super Deluxe Edition" also contains two captivating live performances. The first, recorded on March 9, 1972, at the Paris Theatre in London, captures the group's unrivaled stage presence during the Machine Head Tour. The second, previously unreleased, was recorded in April 1971 at the Montreux Casino in Switzerland.

The new Dolby Atmos and 2024 mixes were made by Zappa using the original tapes. In the liner notes, Zappa says, "It's one of those records where I think, 'How did they come up with this?' It's got classical influences in the guitar and the keyboard, but then it's got the blues and there's little bits of funkiness."

"And you have this singer who has the most killer voice. All these things come together in a way where it doesn't sound like commercial music, yet people got really excited about it. It's a fascinating recipe," he adds.

Responding to demand, Garbage have announced an expanded reissue of their fourth studio album, Bleed Like Me.

Bleed Like Me Expanded Reissue will be released on April 5 via UMe and will be available on vinyl for the first time.

The fully remastered version includes 2CD, 1LP white vinyl, deluxe 2LP red vinyl, and HD digital formats and features b-sides, rare tracks, remixes and alternate versions of tracks.

Speaking about the new Bleed Like Me expanded reissue, Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson said, "This album was tricky to make and resulted in the band taking a 5-year hiatus shortly after it was released. However, over the years, it has become a mainstay of our discography, so we decided to finally make it available on vinyl due to the many pained pleas from our fans."

Bleed Like Me was a top 5 album chart hit in the U.K., U.S., Australia, and Europe upon its initial release in April 2005.

The alternative rock band is playing a number of festival shows this year, including European and U.K. dates at Mad Cool in Madrid, and TRNSMT in Glasgow in July.

Porno For Pyros Release New Single 'Little Me'

Porno For Pyros Release New Single 'Little Me'

Porno For Pyros recently released a new single, "Little Me," which will feature on the band's upcoming EP.

"Hey, hey, woah-oh / She said she had a little me / No, no, don't make me go / I'm carryin' your little me," Perry Farrell sings over a punchy guitar riff and groovy bass line.

The band previously released "Agua" from the forthcoming EP.

Porno For Pyros guitarist Peter DiStefano said in an interview with Songfacts.com that the song dates back to the 90s.

"Perry [Farrell] had a girlfriend at the time and he thought she was pregnant - he thought he was going to have a kid," DiStefano explains. "Then it turned out that she wasn't pregnant. It's a love song, but it's a wild love song. I love the guitar riff."

The band, consisting of DiStefano, Farrell, Stephen Perkins and Mike Watt, are set to commence a 16-city run on February 13 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California.

The tour will have stops in Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York City and more before wrapping up on March 10 in Montclair, New Jersey, at The Wellmont Theater.

Incubus To Play 'Morning View' In Full On U.S. Tour With Coheed And Cambria

American rock band Incubus have announced a summer U.S. tour along with Coheed And Cambria.

During the 10-city trek, Incubus will perform their 2001 album Morning View in its entirety as well as their hits.

Incubus are also releasing a re-recording of Morning View XXIII, which is due out on May 10 via Virgin Music Group.

Frontman Brandon Boyd says, "Roughly 23 years ago we rented a house at the sea to do an art experiment. The novel and expansive environment combined with a healthy dose of momentum helped us find that ever sought after FLOW state and the songs that became known as Morning View have since become indelible and deeply important parts of our lives."

"This album helped propel our little art experiment called 'Incubus' into a way of life and here we are today, some 23 years later, about to introduce a new/next phase of its existence," he added. "Morning View xxiii is a re-recording/re-think of the 2001 album and is the result of our desire to honor this burgeoning legacy but also reimagine it as musicians who have been lovingly performing these songs night after night for the last 23 years. See you on the road soon!"
