  • Canada's Three Days Grace has announced a slew of new tour dates as the band continues to support its newly released fifth studio album, Human. The tour kicks off on May 9th in Somerset, Wisconsin and winds through the next three months, wrapping up on August 23rd in Seattle. Most of the dates go on sale this Friday (May 1st).

    Singer Matt Walst took over on the mic for Three Days Grace in 2013 and told us that he uses his nervous energy before going onstage to give fans a better show: "It was scary at first, but that fuels ya. Like, I used to be in track and field, and before the race started, I felt like I was gonna pee my pants, honestly. But, you know, once you get up there, it's just adrenaline and it fuels me and the crowd fuels me and it's just energy back and forth. When I step onstage, I just try to put as much energy into it and have as much fun as possible, and just make the crowd have fun and jump around." :

  • Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo was asked in a new interview with Yahoo! to compare current vocalist Chester Bennington with former frontman Scott Weiland. DeLeo replied, "There’s no comparison. It’s like talking about the strength of a two-year-old baby compared to a professional body builder. I’ll tell you this man, Robert (DeLeo, bass), Eric (Kretz, drums) and I are really fortunate. We’re having the time of our lives right now. We really feel like this has been a rebirth."

    As for a possible reunion with Weiland somewhere down the road, DeLeo said, "Why that f**k would we want that? That f**king mess? I just told you earlier we’re on a rebirth now. We’re with a guy that pushes us. We’re with a guy that is 1000% present. I’ve waited almost my entire career for this."

    • STP dismissed Weiland in February 2013, claiming that his erratic behavior held back the band's career. The two parties exchanged lawsuits which have since been settled.
    • STP recruited Bennington that spring and have so far cut one EP, High Rise, with the Linkin Park singer. A new album is due out later this year.
    • Stone Temple Pilots are just wrapping a tour now but have announced new fall dates, starting on September 15th in Cleveland. The dates so far are (subject to change):
      September 15 - Cleveland, OH - House of Blues
      September 16 - Detroit, MI - Filmore
      September 22 - Cincinnati, OH - Bogarts
      September 23 - Louisville, KY - Palace Theatre
      September 25 - St. Paul, MN - The Myth


  • Deftones singer Chino Moreno said in a new interview with BBC Radio that the band's eighth studio album will tentatively be released on September 25th. Moreno elaborated on the status of the set, saying, "Music has been all recorded and I’m currently working on the vocals . . . It’s coming out really good, it’s just another Deftones record, and I feel like us reaching a little bit, getting more into the song structures, and just trying to challenge ourselves a little bit you know what I mean? It’s sounding good. I think it’s gonna be a great record."

    • Moreno added that he's been recording the vocals at his home studio in Oregon, saying, "Slowly but surely getting it done, man."
    • Moreno said in an interview last month, "The songs are amazing and we wrote them in a really cool way. We had all of us in a room together with one person expressing an idea and another person jumping on it. The songs are really built as a collective."
    • The band's last album was 2012's acclaimed Koi No Yokan, which debuted at Number 11 on the Billboard album chart and yielded the Top Two rock radio single "Tempest."
    • Deftones have a lot of live shows coming up this year, including a summer co-headlining tour with Incubus that kicks off July 22nd in Clarkson, Michigan.

  • Zac Brown Band's fourth studio album, Jekyll Hyde, hits stores on Tuesday (April 28th) just as they've notched the Number One song on the rock radio chart with "Heavy Is The Head," which features a collaboration with Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. Working with artists like Cornell and expanding his band's sound is what Brown says he wanted to do: "We’ve just pushed the envelope on this album. It’s gonna be a surprise to some people and there’s gonna be some purists that only like a certain style, but our intention is not to abandon any of the roots of where we come from. It’s not about abandoning. It’s about expanding. It’s about growing as artists and as musicians and opening ourselves up to the world and what else the world has. It’s about bringing people to music." in Nashville.
  • Cornell showed up to perform "Heavy Is The Head" with the band last month on Saturday Night Live.
  • Zac Brown Band worked last year with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who produced an EP for the group called The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1.

  • Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor told Seattle radio station KISW that he once turned down an opportunity to appear on Rock Of Love, the VH1 reality dating series in which 25 women would have competed to become his girlfriend. The offer was made to Taylor after Poison singer Bret Michaels starred for three seasons between 2007 and 2009 before declining to return for a fourth year.

    Taylor explained, "I've gotten offered a lot of (non-music-related projects) over the years. I actually got called -- I wanna say about seven years ago, I got called about being on Rock Of Love. I think Bret had passed on it, on one of the seasons. And I was, like, 'Don't ever call me again.'"

    • Taylor added, "I was, like, (trying to figure out) who in their right mind thought I was the perfect dude for Rock Of Love 12 or whatever the hell it was . . . At first I was pissed, and then I just started laughing -- I was just, like, 'You've gotta be kidding! Really?!'"
    • Taylor admitted that he later had second thoughts about turning the show down, saying, "In retrospect, I was, like, 'Man, I should have just done one week and just ruined it.' (I should have done) the complete opposite of what could have been and just destroyed these people's dreams."
    • The singer, who recently made his acting debut in a movie called Fear Clinic, said that he gets a lot of calls about other films and projects, but said, "I'm not gonna be that guy that kind of cashes in my name for a quick paycheck."
    • Taylor told us not long ago that when he does get involved in a new project, he fully commits: "I've always had the mentality that if you enter things with no expectations, you will give your best, you will give your all. You're not worried about, you know, how it's going to be received or if it's gonna do well or if you're gonna make any money at it. You're just concentrated on making sure that it's the best thing that you can possibly put out there. And it hasn't failed me yet, hopefully." and ends on May 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
    • Slipknot is supporting its latest album, .5: The Gray Chapter, which came out in October. The latest single released from the set is called "Custer."

    • STEPHEN HAWKING OFFERS THEORY ON ONE DIRECTION

      Stephen Hawking hopes to ease the pain of Directioners everywhere with a little hope that the band is still together in some time and place. The theoretical physicist appeared via hologram at the Sydney Opera House over the weekend where a fan asked, "What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn Malik leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?"

      Stephen responded, "Finally, a question about something important. My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another, different universe, and in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction." He added, "This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married."

      • Zayn announced his exit from the boy band back in March and is currently working on a solo project.

      An insider revealed to the website that Bruce's sons and even Kim Kardashian have expressed their concern to him that his upcoming E! docu-series may "de-class" what he accomplished with the interview.

      Scarlett Johansson just wants to live a normal life despite all that life in the spotlight has brought her. The Avengers: Age of Ultron star appears in the new issue of Parade magazine discussing how she stays grounded and trying to protect her daughter, Rose Dorothy, from the paparazzi.

      Scarlett explains, "I have many luxuries of fame, but I make my own bed. I like to buy my groceries. I drive my car. I like to do the normal, everyday things that I've always enjoyed. It doesn't mean that when I drive out of my garage, I don't fear that I'm being followed by somebody, because I probably am. But there's always going to be an adjustment. At some point, you have to take your life back and say, 'You know what? If I feel like picking up my dry cleaning and if someone's going to photograph me doing it, so what?' Part of being with your kids is making them feel as safe and normal as you can."

      • Scarlett also touches on being a celebrity parent saying, "It's hard. On the one hand, you don't want to isolate your kids, but you don't want to make your kids feel like freaks: There's this fascination with famous kids, like they're celebrity spawn."
      • The 30-year-old welcomed Rose last year with husband Romain Dauriac.

Husbands and wives of soldiers, victims of senseless violence and parents who have lost children. People who get up each day and do what feels like is the impossible. So it is for these people and in the spirit of resiliance I am honored and excited to tell the story of how Meredith goes on in the face of what feels like the impossible. I hope you will all join me on her journey. With gratitude and respect, Ellen." Fans have already started a petition to keep Dr. Derek Shepherd on the show.
