Disturbed have announced the release of their new album “Evolution,” sharing a music video for the upcoming album’s first single.
“It’s with tremendous pride, joy, and anticipation that we look forward to sharing the next chapter in the creative life of Disturbed with the world,” writes the band in their Facebook announcement. “This record is truly unique and very special to us.” The deluxe edition of the album will include a live version of their popular cover of “The Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel.
“Evolution” is due for release on October 19th. The band promises a new “adventurous” sound, which you can get a taste of with the album’s first single, “Are You Ready.”
You may recall that Alice In Chains is gearing up to release their sixth album, “Rainier Fog.” Now they’re giving fans another taste of the new record.
The new song, “Never Fade,” which accompanies their other two single releases, “The One You Know” and “So Far Under,” features some heavy power chords topped by gloomy lyrics. Frontman Jerry Cantrell previously talked about the struggles of writing new material, implying that inspiration will come with new dark experiences. “It’s easy to be pissed off about something,” he told Rolling Stone.
We recently reported that Dave Grohl announced the release of his two-part mini-documentary, “Play,” which includes a 23-minute song recorded by the Foo Fighters frontman as a one-man band. Well, it’s finally out, and we’ve got all the details.
Part one of the documentary explores the documentary’s main theme, which is “the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing music.” Intercut with footage of Grohl preparing to play the 23-minute one-man jam, some young aspiring musicians are interviewed about their journey learning to play music. The first section is a little brief, really just a build-up to the second part – the massive song.
Fans can enjoy an interactive version of the song from “Play” here, where they have the option to listen to individual instruments from the performance. There’s also sheet music available on the site, along with a list of music education organizations. “Play” will be available to purchase digitally and on vinyl on September 28th.
It’s been five years since Pearl Jam played Seattle but that all changed earlier this week when they headlined the first of two “Home Shows” at Safeco Field, which has already raised $11.5 million to fight the homelessness problem in the city.
The band treated fans who came from all over the world to over three hours of music, including classics like “Even Flow,” “Black,” “Breathe,” and “Release.” The night also featured some special moments including Eddie Vedder dedicating the White Stripes’ “We’re Going to Be Friends” to teachers, which ended with Eddie’s daughter bringing out their teachers. They also brought out special guest Brandi Carlile, who joined them for her song “Again Today,” a track Pearl Jam performed for Carlile’s 2017 “Cover Stories” album.
Other highlights included a snippet of The Beatles’ “Help,” which segued into their song “Help, Help,” and later another Beatles cover, “I Got A Feeling.” There were also covers of Little Steven’s “I Am A Patriot,” Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” and Neil Young’s “Throw Your Hatred Down” and “Rockin’ In The Free World.”
Pearl Jam returns to Safeco Field tonight for the final show in the series. They then move to Missoula, Montana on Monday. Check out some video to the right.
ONE MORE THING! Not everything went smoothly at the show however. There were some complaints from fans about how long it took to enter the stadium. In addition, people, especially female fans, were upset over a last minute change that prohibited anyone from bringing in a bag larger than a six inch by four inch clutch.
Dave Grohl is a man of many musical talents, and he proves it in his upcoming mini-documentary “Play” by creating a massive 23-minute song as a one-man band.
The two-part doc, penned and filmed by Grohl, explores “the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing and mastering a musical instrument.” Fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at what went into the doc’s showcase 23-minute performance by Grohl, who rocks seven different instruments for the song. Grohl is also offering an interactive experience, letting viewers download sheet music as well as hear individual instruments for the whole performance.
“Play” is due for release on streaming services on August 10th. A limited edition vinyl version will be released on September 28th, available to pre-order now.

We recently told youabout Tom Morello’s new solo project, Atlas Underground, which he has been teasing on Twitter. Well, now the Prophets of Rage guitarist has finally coughed up a new single from the upcoming self-titled solo album.
The single, “We Don’t Need You” features rapper Vic Mensa and some of Morello’s signature riffs over heavy rap beats. Morello says that the album’s lyrics come from “social justice ghost stories,” which fits with the verses on this single. Mensa raps, “Don’t lie to me, the poor go to war, there’s no war on poverty.”
Morello is planning to play the album in its entirety for fans on October 11th at the Lodge Room in Los Angeles, tickets are available here. “The Atlas Underground” is due for release on October 12th.

Prophets Of Rage have released a new visual for their song “Who Owns Who,” a track featured on their self-titled debut album.

Profits from the music video will be donated to this charity.
