  • SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM FROM BUSH ARRIVES ON TUESDAY

    Bush releases its sixth studio album on Tuesday (October 21st), titled Man On The Run. The disc is the second by the band since it reformed four years ago, following 2011's The Sea Of Memories. Frontman Gavin Rossdale told us that the success of that record made him work even harder this time: "It just upped my ante, you know. When I was in the studio, I'm sure I started plenty of songs that I rejected in the studio because I just would come in the next day and be like, 'You know, that's just not good enough. Let's just start that one over.' And so I was really probably the harshest I've ever been with myself on this record, which was a positive thing."

    The first single and video from Man On The Run is "The Only Way Out."
  • Bush recorded the album at Studio 606, the private studio owned by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Bush reissued four of its previous albums on October 14th in remastered editions, including 1994's Sixteen Stone, 1996's Razorblade Suitcase, 1999's The Science of Things and the 1997 remix LP, Deconstructed. Bush has yet to announce full tour plans in support of the new disc.

  • FRONTMAN SHIMON MOORE LEAVES SICK PUPPIES

    Frontman Shimon Moore has left Sick Puppies, the band he co-founded in Australia with bassist Emma Anzai in 1997 while the two were in high school. Anzai and drummer Mark Goodwin, the trio's remaining members, issued a statement in which they said that Moore was "pursuing other endeavors," adding, "We are currently in the studio writing material for our upcoming studio album while auditioning new singers . . . Our passion and determination to create and share our music is stronger than ever. We cannot wait for Sick Puppies’ next chapter to unfold and for you all to be part of it."

    • According to Loudwire, Moore has yet to comment on his exit from the band or what his next move will be.
    • Moore told us a while back that it was gratifying to see years of hard work start to pay off for the group after they struggled in Australia for a long time: "There are so many times when you get tired and, you don't question whether or not you're gonna continue, but you do just go, 'Man, when are we gonna get a break, or what's gonna happen?' And I think we're finally starting to see some of the fruits of our labor now with people knowing the words to our songs, people coming to us after the shows and saying the music is important to them. And that wouldn't have happened if we hadn't continued, and that's really the most humbling thing for us, out of everything."
    • Sick Puppies had their first breakthrough success when the video for their song "All The Same," which showcased a "Free Hugs" campaign, became a massive sensation on YouTube.
    • Their albums included 2007's Dressed Up As Life, 2009's Tri-Polar and 2013's Connect, while their string of rock radio hits featured "You're Going Down," "Odd One," "Riptide" and "There's No Going Back."

  • SLIPKNOT UNLEASHES '.5: THE GRAY CHAPTER' AT LAST

    Slipknot comes fully back on Tuesday (October 21st), as the Iowa-based band releases .5: The Gray Chapter, its first new album in six years. The disc caps a very turbulent period for the masked rockers in which they dealt with the death of bassist Paul Gray and the firing of drummer Joey Jordison, both longtime members and songwriters. Despite it all, singer Corey Taylor told us he's proud of what the band has accomplished this time out: "The fact that we were able to kind of pull ourselves back up and not only go in and make a really good album, but make an exceptional album, in my opinion, I think it's a testament to just how talented this band is. It's a testament to how much passion we have for it. It's a testament to how much we're willing to fight to accomplish everything that we want to accomplish. I'm excited for people to hear this, because to me I think it's one of the best albums we've ever made." at its own Knotfest in San Bernardino, California, along with Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Hellyeah, Nothing More, Atreyu, In This Moment, Of Mice & Men and many more.

  • Slipknot will head out on a headlining North American tour immediately following Knotfest, with special guests Korn.

  • FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH SINGER PLANNING SOLO ALBUM

    Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody is working on his first solo album but says he will wait until the time is right to release it. According to Blabbermouth, Moody said on the Jasta Show podcast, "It's not done yet. I'm taking my time on it. My plate's full. (Five Finger Death Punch) is my meat and potatoes, and our fan base, and if I take away from that right now, it'd be bad timing. So I'm just taking it stride by stride. And when it comes out, it'll come out."

    • Moody added that he has recruited former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader and Devildriver drummer John Boecklin to play on the record.
    • The vocalist hinted at a solo project last year in an interview with Sweden's Metalshrine, saying, "I talked to the guys (in Five Finger Death Punch), and after doing five records like this, it's time to take a little bit of space from each other, and that way, when we come back to do the next album, it'll be fresh to us again."
    • Five Finger Death Punch released two albums in 2013, titled The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, Parts 1 & 2.
    • Drummer Jeremy Spencer recently said that the group was already looking ahead to its next studio effort, with some early recording already underway for a possible album release in summer 2015.
    • The band winds down its fall co-headlining tour with Volbeat this week with shows in Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona, before appearing at Slipknot's Knotfest on Sunday (October 26th) in San Bernardino, California.

  • JIMMY PAGE DIDN'T WANT TO REWRITE HISTORY WITH LED ZEPPELIN REMASTERS

    Jimmy Page is keeping busy with the recent publication of his photo biography called Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page, and the ongoing Led Zeppelin reissue campaign. Page's deluxe remastering job on the band’s fourth and fifth albums, 1971’s Led Zeppelin IV and Houses Of The Holy, is coming on October 28th.

    We asked Page if while handling the band's classic masters while upgrading their quality, he was ever tempted to throw them back up on the board and do some minor tweaking to them: "I’m not into re-writing history, I’m just re-presenting. All of the music that you hear across the companion disc, is all basically mixes from the time. I thought it was essential to have mixes from the time, because you’ve got the mindset, it’s showing the mindset of what’s being done. To go to the multi-tracks and start remixing, then that’s a whole different total ballgame. I wasn’t into that. I really wanted something whereby totally reflected what was going on at that point of time -- of the time capsule, if you like, of when these things are being recorded. That’s what the idea was of this."

    • The Jimmy Page-remastered editions of 1971’s Led Zeppelin IV and 1973’s Houses Of The Holy will both be released with previously unreleased audio content in a variety of packages -- including a limited edition "Super Deluxe" box set.
    • Earlier this year, Led Zeppelin's recent live set, Celebration Day, recorded during their 2007 London reunion concert, won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album beating out releases from Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Queens Of The Stone Age, Neil Young with Crazy Horse, and Kings Of Leon.

      Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at the age of 82. He had been battling cancer since 2006.

      Oscar rose to fame for dressing Jackie Kennedy in the 60s. His work was popular with other first ladies including Betty Ford, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and more. Most recently, Amal Alamuddin wore one of his designs for her wedding to George Clooney. He told the International Business Times last year, "The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life."

      • Peter Copping was named creative director of the brand last week.

  • SHONDA RHIMES REACTS TO CRITICISM OF HER SHOW'S GAY SCENES

    Shonda Rhimes could not care less if you have a problem with the gay scenes on her shows. The TV mogul took to Twitter on Sunday (October 19th) to respond to a user who wrote, "The gay scenes in Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder are too much. There is no point and they add nothing to the plot."

    Shonda wrote back, "There are no GAY scenes. There are scenes with people in them. If you are suddenly discovering that Shondaland shows have scenes involving people who are gay, you are LATE TO THE PARTY. If u use the phrase "gay scenes", u are not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party. Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE." She later added, "Ok, tweeps. Someone got me all riled up and fighting 4 my friends and their love and the equality of all -- I am supposed to be WRITING. So, I know you lovelies are asking me questions but I have to go. And finish making script notes. So you have more #GreysAnatomy to watch. I love all you Tweeples. Even the ones who still need to grow. And remember that at some point, someone discriminated against you too. I don't know why this kind of hate is out there. Ugh. #onelove. At least in Shondaland. Have a great rest of your weekend!"

    • Peter Nowalk, the creator of How to Get Away With Murder, recently chatted with E! about the show's gay scenes saying, "I knew I wanted to push the envelope, especially with the gay sex. And to me, writing the gay characterization and writing some real gay sex into a network show is to right the wrong of all of the straight sex that you see on TV. Because I didn't see that growing up, and I feel like the more people get used to two men kissing, the less weird it will be for people. I just feel like it's a lack of vision that you don't see it on TV, but ABC has never had a note about any of the weird stuff in the show, so I'm gonna keep it going."
