On AWOLNATION's new album Here Come the Runts, frontman Aaron Bruno wanted to create an antidote to what he calls the "synthetic" sound of today's alternative rock scene. To do that, Bruno recorded the album with a whole band, instead of doing everything by himself.
"On the last record [2015's Run], I did everything alone and then I presented it to the band and said, 'OK, let's figure this out,'" Bruno tells ABC Radio. "And while I'm so grateful that they wanted to join me on that journey, there's a different kind of camaraderie and team feel to this album."…
Falling in Reverse has released a new, stand-alone single called "Losing My Mind." The track, which features a rapping Ronnie Radke, is available now for digital download.
"I pretty much do whatever I want when it comes to music and nothing is off limits to me," says Radke in a statement. "I spent my whole musical career trying to be different and make songs that people think shouldn't go together...go together.

Fall Out Boy is giving you a peek behind the M A N I A curtain with a trio of demos for songs that didn't make the final album.
"When we pushed the record back, we felt like we wanted to thank everybody for being patient," explains bassist Pete Wentz. "So these are three demos we scrapped that will never be finished."
"The intention is to share where the songs ended," he adds. "These won't end up on an album. Consider them little sketches."
The demos, the longest of which is only 98 seconds, are titled "Past Life," "Footprints in…
More than a dozen years after the end of their popular MTV reality TV series, the Osbournes are coming back! This time, however, Ozzy and his family will be starring in a weekly podcast that's titled, appropriately enough, The Osbournes Podcast.

Fans can listen to or download the podcast at TheOsbournesPodcast.com and via iTunes' Apple Podcasts.
Dave Grohl is unplugging for charity.
The Foo Fighters frontman will perform an acoustic set at Notes + Words, a benefit concert in support of the Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, California.
The show takes place May 12 at Oakland's Fox Theater. Visit NotesandWords.org for ticket info.
Grohl previously performed solo at the 2016 Oscars, which, as you may recall, led to rumors that the lead Foo was going solo. That probably won't happen again, but it might be worth it just to get another hilarious "official band announcement" video.
You can catch Grohl and the rest of Foo Fighters…
Indonesia President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has once again proven his metal cred. According to The Jakarta Post, he reached into his own pocket so he could keep a Master of Puppets box set signed by Metallica's Lars Ulrich,
You may recall that the prime minister of Ulrich's native Denmark gifted the Master of Puppets box set to Jokowi during a state visit last November. In order to avoid any conflict of interest, Jokowi reported the gift to Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission, or KPK. It was then listed as part of the Indonesia state inventory.
The Jakarta Post now reports Jokowi…
As Smashing Pumpkins gear up for their massive Shiny and Oh So Bright reunion tour this summer, Billy Corgan has shared the list of songs he, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin are thinking about playing on the trek.

On the tour, the Pumpkins…

Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda guested on the newest episode of his bandmate Dave "Phoenix" Farrell's Member Guest podcast. During the conversation, Shinoda gave an update on the status of Linkin Park as the band continues to grieve and recover from Chester Bennington's death last July.
"I do spend time trying to figure out that path, and it's a work in progress," Shinoda says. "I know people would love to have a definitive statement from any of us saying, 'This is what we're gonna do!' And it would be easy to do. I could totally lie right now and say this…
