Coldplay has released a re-recorded version of their A Head Full of Dreams track "Everglow." The new version takes a much more stripped-back approach, focusing almost entirely on Chris Martin's vocals and piano.
The inspiration to record a minimalist version of "Everglow" struck Coldplay after their Glastonbury headlining set in June. During the show, a technical problem forced Martin to perform an unrehearsed solo rendition of the song. The band ended up loving the stripped-back nature of Martin's performance, and decided to record a new version of "Everglow" in a similar style.
The new version of "Everglow" is available now…
Jane's Addiction is one of the 19 acts nominated for entry into the 2017 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In an essay for Billboard, Rage Against the Machine and Prophets of Rage guitarist Tom Morello describes why Perry Ferrell and company deserve to be inducted.
"Jane's Addiction are the Sex Pistols of the Alternative Nation," Morello writes. "A small, brilliant catalog of songs and a shocking, groundbreaking ethos that changed music forever."
The guitarist goes on to explain that when he first moved to Los Angeles in 1986, "hair metal was king." But when Morello first…
Lzzy Hale will perform alongside Dream Theater during the band's show in Anaheim, California on November 16. The Halestorm frontwoman will be joining the prog-metallers for a rendition of their collaborative song "Our New World."
"I am so honored to be performing with Dream Theater," says Hale.
"Our New World" is a song from Dream Theater's new album The Astonishing, which the band is performing in full on tour. The album version of "Our New World" does not feature Hale, but the band re-recorded a single version of the song with Lzzy on vocals.
Halestorm recently wrapped up a tour…
Halloween may have passed, but that won't stop Chevelle from getting into the creepy spirit. The band has premiered the video for their song "Door to Door Cannibals," which finds frontman Pete Loeffler trying to escape a strange, experimental hospital.
"Pete, [bassist] Dean [Bernardini] and I wanted to do a sort of 'nightmare/horror' type video for 'Door to Door Cannibals,'" drummer Sam Loeffler tells horror site Bloody Disgusting. "So we spent some time brainstorming and kicked around the idea of a mental/experimental hospital we find ourselves in and can't wake up from."
"Door to Door Cannibals" is the opening track from…
Blink-182's Mark Hoppus has shared a text message that he sent his son the morning after Donald Trump won the presidential election over Hillary Clinton. He posted a screen shot of the message on Blink's Twitter, which he says is a "text to my son, as much for myself as for him."
"I know we're all upset after the election last night. I know I sure am," Hoppus writes. "I hope you're not disheartened. Take this sense of frustration and anger and use it for something good. We are right on the edge of changing the world for the better,…
Coldplay staged a big tour this year in support of their new album A Head Full of Dreams, and they were rewarded for their success on the road at the Billboard Touring Awards, held Wednesday night in Beverly Hills.
The band took home the prizes for Top Draw and Top Boxscore. That first one awards the best-attended tour, while the second is an award for the highest-grossing single engagement by an artist. Coldplay was also a finalist Top Tour category, which awards the top-grossing trek of the year, but they lost out to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.…
AFI frontman Davey Havok bares all -- well, almost -- in a new campaign for the People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA.
The campaign poster shows the tattooed musician completely naked, though some conveniently-located shadows and text obscure his, er, sensitive area. The tagline reads, "I'd rather go naked than wear leather."
"I was raised on rock 'n' roll, like many people, and the leather jacket was a part of that culture," Havok says in a video for PETA, which also shows some disturbing images of animals being harmed during leather production.
"But no article of clothing,…
Muse has always been known for their grandiose, arena-ready sound, but the band may strip it back a bit for their next album.
Responding to a Twitter question on the direction of future Muse music, frontman Matt Bellamy replied, "[I] may have to dust off the old acoustic guitar, been a while."
Before you get to worked up -- in either direction -- about the prospect of an unplugged Muse, Bellamy previously told Q magazine that the band wasn't planning to record a new album until 2018, so they have plenty of time to figure out their sound going forward.…
Travis Barker has not flown since he was involved in a tragic plane crash in 2008. He'll still be joining Blink-182 for their U.K. tour next year, but he'll be using a different method of transportation.
"For me, there's only one way to get there and that's on a boat," Barker tells the U.K.'s Radio X. "It's like 10 days."
Barker will hit the high seas on the Queen Mary 2 transatlantic ocean liner, on which he's traveled before.
"What works for me, I spend the time working out, I usually run an hour and a half a day 'cause…
