Foo Fighters Announce New Album ‘Concrete And Gold’ For September Release

Foo Fighters Announce New Album ‘Concrete And Gold’ For September Release

Legendary rockers Foo Fighters have announced a new album titled ‘Concrete and Gold.’,The album is set for a September 15 via Roswell/RCA. The record will include ”The Sky is a Neighborhood” and “La Dee Da,” which were previously debuted live. It also features “Run,” which recently premiered with a crazy Dave Grohl-directed video. Check out the album’s cover art and tracklist below. The band have also announced a string of new tour dates. Foo Fighters’ last release was 2015’s Saint Cecilia EP. In 2014, they shared their ‘Sonic Highways’ LP.

Greg Kurstin (Adele, Katy Perry, Pink) has produced the new album. Of the new record, Grohl said in a statement,  “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of “Sgt. Pepper”… or something like that. Our noise and Greg’s big brain and all of his sophisticated arrangements and composition. So I think maybe Greg is the guy that we ask to be our producer because he’s never made a heavy rock record before and we’ve never worked with a pop producer.”

‘Concrete and Gold’ Tracklist:
1. T-Shirt
2. Run
3. Make It Right
4. The Sky Is A Neighborhood
5. La Dee Da
6. Dirty Water
7. Arrows

Hollywood Vampires Announce 18 North American Tour Dates

Hollywood Vampires Announce 18 North American Tour Dates

hollywoodvampires-2015-1

Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup whose core members are Alice CooperJohnny Depp and Joe Perry, have just announced dates for their North American tour this summer.  The musicians supporting the high profile rockers include drummer Matt Sorum (the Cult, Guns N’ Roses), guitarist Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper’s band), Bruce Witkin (Johnny Depp’s group the Kids) and Robert DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots).

Hollywood Vampires

How it all began…
In 1972, on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar.  It was a gathering place for rock stars living in or passing through L.A.  “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the Vampires.  “I would walk in on a typical night,” Alice says, “and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.”

Roughly four years ago, Alice Cooper and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking).  An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires lives again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album.  Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and with producer Bob Ezrin, the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.  The new album was released on September 11th, 2015 and all artist proceeds are being donated to MusiCares.

Hollywood Vampires Announce Two Shows At The Roxy This September!

Hollywood Vampires Announce Two Shows At The Roxy This September!

hollywoodvampires-2015-1

In 1972, on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar.  It was a gathering place for rock stars living in or passing through L.A.  “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the Vampires.  “I would walk in on a typical night,” Alice says, “and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.”

Now, returning to where it once began, the Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry) have announced today two shows at the notorious Sunset Strip music venue, The Roxy.  This will mark the Hollywood Vampires only U.S. appearances on September 16 and 17, and will surely be the most sought after ticket in town. Joining the Hollywood Vampires live will be Matt Sorum on drums, Duff McKagan on bass, Tommy Henriksen on guitar, and Bruce Witkin on piano and guitar. Tickets are on sale on August 14 for the September 16th show at http://ticketf.ly/1EdJvSI and September 17th show at http://ticketf.ly/1W5TvIT.

Additionally on September 24, in what will be their only international appearance, the band will head to Brazil for “Rock in Rio.” Before that show, the band will partner with Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization that has provided more than 1.8 million free hearing aids to people in need in more than 100 countries, to offer and fit hearing aids to more than 150 people in need.   After the hearing aid fittings, the Hollywood Vampires and Starkey Hearing Foundation will bring a number of individuals to the show so they can hear music for the first time in their lives.

“Hearing connects us to life, our families and to the world around us,” said Bill Austin, founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation. “It’s a precious gift, and we are excited to work with the Hollywood Vampires to introduce so many to the world of sound and help them hear music for the first time.”

Three years ago, Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking).  An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires live again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album.  Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and with producer Bob Ezrin, the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.  The new album is set to be released on September 11 and all artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.

For the next two years, Alice, Joe and Johnny, joined by producer Bob Ezrin and an amazing group of modern day vampires, including Perry FarrellDave Grohl, Sir Paul McCartneyJoe Walsh, Slash, Robbie KriegerZak StarkeyBrian Johnson and Kip Winger, recorded tracks by their dead friends and heroes.  Also included are two original songs that tell the story of the Vampires, one of which, “Raise The Dead,” has an intro by Sir Christopher Lee, recorded just prior to his death.

The album package, an antique book, was created by noted men’s fashion designer (and rock fan) John Varvatos in his signature vintage style.  Alice and Varvatos, both Detroit natives, have been partners in fashion for several years with Alice lending his classic rock style as a brand ambassador.

A sneak peek at the liner notes, penned by original Hollywood Vampire Bernie Taupin, “I’m not here to defend their vices. Over-indulgence of any sort does not ultimately constitute for a healthy mind and body. And while on the periphery of those involved, wives may have come and gone, career choices may have been deemed dubious, and heartbreak in some cases stalked a dark corridor, but in the lair of the Hollywood Vampires only joy and laughter reigned.”

“I’m not completely sure what constituted bad behavior back then, but in this lair it existed in a bubble, a hermetically sealed dome of fun. It may not have been the round table at the Algonquin, but these were witty, intelligent guys who often got raucous and loud, but rest assured there were no bystanders or animals hurt in the making of the Hollywood Vampires.”

All artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.

‘Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)’ To Hit DVD On September 18th

‘Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)’ To Hit DVD On September 18th

'Salad Days'

‘Salad Days’

Scott Crawford and Jim Saah’s Salad Days: A Decade of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90) has been selling out screenings in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, and more. The documentary film that examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows-without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny.

Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry’s subsequent implosion). Thirty years later, DC’s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction.

Director/writer Scott Crawford is a music journalist, musician, and graphic designer. As a teenager in the DC suburbs, he started a fanzine called Metrozine that documented much of what was happening in the DC hardcore punk scene in the 1980s.

“The DC punk music scene that I grew up with in the 1980s has always been a big part of who I am,” says Scott. “I interviewed a lot of these bands for the first time over 30 years ago while doing a fanzine. Approaching them all again decades later offered a type of perspective and reflection that I wanted to capture in a film.”

Crawford was also quoted in both Dance of Days and Banned in DC – the two most definitive books on the early DC punk scene. In 2001, he launched Harp Magazine and served as its Editor-in-Chief for over seven years. Crawford also launched the online music portal Blurt in 2009.

Serving as Director of Photography, Saah is a native of Washington, DC who has worked professionally in photography and video for over 25 years. He has shot for a variety of publications and websites ranging from the Washington Post to Rolling Stone. He’s also an experienced videographer whose credits range from union organizing films to music documentaries. Recent films he has worked on include movies about the bands Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, and Eddie Vedder.

On a side note, OBEY and Shepard Fairey were heavily influenced by the DC hardcore scene. Shepard has used numerous DC hardcore legends such as Ian Mackaye of Minor Threat and Fugazi, Henry Rollins of State of Alert and Black Flag, and Bad Brains in his artwork. When hearing that Crawford and Saah were planning a West Coast release of their film, OBEY wanted to get involved. They created this T-shirt which is on sale now (along with other cool Salad Days merchandise) HERE.

Quick Facts:

Salad Days reached its Kickstarter goal in 6 days.

* Features never-before-seen photographs and performance footage of dozens of DC punk bands.

* Interviews with Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, John Stabb, Thurston Moore, Dave Grohl, and others

* Original score by guitarist Michael Hampton (SOA, Faith, Embrace, One Last Wish)

MTV2’s 120 Minutes With Matt Pinfield Launches On July 30th!

MTV2’s 120 Minutes With Matt Pinfield Launches On July 30th!

Matt Pinfield

MTV2’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield, the re-invention of MTV’s prolific music series, is set to return to MTV2 as an on-air monthly series beginning Saturday, July 30th at 1 AM ET/ 10 PM PT. Matt Pinfield, 120 Minutes’ most beloved and respected host, returns to provide music fans with an unfiltered look at today’s hottest alternative and indie artists, as well as emerging artists spanning multiple genres including hip-hop and rock through exclusive interviews and music videos.

“I am ecstatic to part of the rebirth of this iconic and influential music series,” said Matt Pinfield. “While the new show on MTV2 will feature the same dose of progressive music fans of the original 120 Minutes embraced and loved, we’ll now be expanding outside the alternative music universe to feature a myriad of emerging artists and sounds from a variety of genres.”

The debut episode of MTV2’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield will feature exclusive interviews with Dave Grohl, PJ Harvey, Kings of Leon, Dangermouse with Danielle Luppi, Das Racist, Sleigh Bells, Lupe Fiasco, Zach Braff, Black Angels, Fitz and the Tantrums and Theophilus London. Fans will also see the uncensored version of Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” music video, Mumford and Sons VH1 Unplugged performance of “Roll Your Stone,” the music video for Cults’ “Abducted” and more.

New episodes of MTV2’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield will air the last Saturday of every month at 1 AM ET/ 10pm PT and will be available online at 120.MTV2.com. In addition, music fans will be treated to a bi-weekly two-minute fix of Pinfield via 120 Seconds, the web companion series, exclusively on MTV’s newly launched pure music website, MTV Hive, as well as great moments and performances from many classic 120 Minutes episodes. Since launching in March at SXSW, 120 Seconds has featured interviews with artists including The Decemberists, Waaves, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Kills, Richard Ashcroft and Ratatat.

“The original 120 Minutes’ paved the way for the most exciting bands and artists of the time to forge deep-rooted connections with their fans,” said Amy Doyle, Executive Vice President of Music & Talent for MTV. “With the show’s re-launch across MTV’s multiple platforms and screens, we’re once again providing passionate music fans with a weekly and monthly destination to discover, celebrate and connect with the best established and emerging musical talent of today.”

Foo Fighters Add Additional Arena Dates To North American Tour

Foo Fighters Add Additional Arena Dates To North American Tour

In the wake of the continuing success of the worldwide #1 album Wasting Light (Roswell/RCA) and the June 14 DVD and Blu-Ray (exclusive at Best Buy through July 12) release of the feature-length documentary Foo Fighters: Back And Forth (Spitfire/Roswell/RCA), Foo Fighters have added another leg of dates to their North American arena tour.

Pre-sales for this next run of headline shows–which will run from October 9th in Denver CO through October 28th in Edmonton and also include a November 14th Newark NJ date–will begin 10 a.m. local time June 15th.

General on sales follow 10 a.m. local time June 17th.

Special guests for the October dates include Cage The Elephant and Mariachi el Bronx.

The October and November dates are the latest additions to a juggernaut of a worldwide campaign that currently has the band headlining European festivals, as well a sold out 130,000-capacity July 2-3 headline weekender at the UK’s Milton Keynes Bowl. In addition, Foo Fighters were recently announced as a Lollapalooza 2011 headliner.

The ever-expanding tour rides the relentless momentum of Foo Fighters’ recently released seventh album Wasting Light, certified gold less than two months after debuting at #1 in a dozen countries. Wasting Light has also generated arguably the best critical notices of the band’s 16-year career.

The newly released Foo Fighters: Back And Forth documentary, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, has done likewise, with a just-out four-star ROLLING STONE review raving “a classic rockumentary arc… Dave Grohl has lived an extraordinarily cinematic life.”

Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear will be playing hits spanning the Foo Fighters’ catalogue of multi-platinum arena anthems, including new staples such as the 13-week Modern Rock #1 “Rope” and “Walk,” the band’s latest single and subject of the brilliant Sam Jones-directed parody of the classic crime drama Falling Down. Already a viral sensation, the “Walk” clip has been viewed more than a million times since its June 2 premiere.

More dates will be announced as they are confirmed. For a complete list of current Foo Fighters tour dates and ticketing info visit http://tour.foofighters.com.
