  • Cage The Elephant has unveiled more details about its upcoming album Unpeeled, which was recorded at shows on the band's acoustic Live And Unpeeled tour this past spring. The disc is now due out July 28th and features a total of 21 tracks recorded at gigs in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Knoxville and Nashville. Of those 21 songs, 18 came from the band's past four studio albums, while three are re-imagined versions of existing tunes, including a cover of the Wreckless Eric number "Whole Wide World."

    • Each of the shows on the Live And Unpeeled tour featured the quartet playing stripped down arrangements of their songs with a string quartet and additional percussion.
    • Singer Matt Shultz said about the project, "Many times you’re adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don’t realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song."
    • Cage The Elephant is currently on the road in Europe, but will return next month for a string of North American festival dates starting on July 14th in Louisville, Kentucky.

  • Foo Fighters debuted a new song called "Sunday Rain" at a show in Riga, Latvia on Wednesday night (June 21st), making it the fourth new tune that the band has rolled out in concert from its upcoming album Concrete And Gold. The tune features lead vocals from drummer Taylor Hawkins, giving frontman Dave Grohl a rare break at the microphone.

    Hawkins confided to us a while back that even though he's spent years on the road, he still gets nervous before going on stage: "The drummer's got the hardest job, man. If the drummer falls apart at any given moment, you're done. The band, it's over. It sounds awful, you have to start again. So I mean, I feel a lot more pressure behind the drums even though that's all I've been doing my whole life is play drums. I still have massive stage fright every night."

    • Hawkins has sang lead before in side bands like the Coattail Riders and the Birds Of Satan, as well as on his 2016 solo EP KOTA.
    • Foo Fighters have already performed the songs "Run," "The Sky Is A Neighborhood" and "La Dee Da" live on its current European festival run.
    • Concrete And Gold arrives in stores on September 15th. Along with its ninth album, Foo Fighters have lined up a massive North American tour this fall as well as Cal Jam, a one-day festival featuring Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Royal Blood and others.

  • Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor recently visited a paralyzed fan in a San Diego hospital. The fan, Aaron Foley, was struck by a pick-up truck on May 15th while helping a friend off the road after the friend was in a motorcycle accident. Foley sustained injuries to his ribs, lungs, liver and spine, which left him paralyzed from the waist down. According to Blabbermouth, Foley had met Taylor several times in the past and this time his mother reached out with the help of a local radio station to contact the singer and set up a visit with her son.

    Taylor surprised Foley by turning up at the hospital and spending nearly an hour chatting with him, with the entire visit captured in a video clip which has since been posted on YouTube. Foley's stepfather wrote online, "We can't thank Corey Taylor enough to take time out of his busy day on tour with Stone Sour to visit Aaron."

    • Aaron's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help ease their financial burden. They have raised close to $4,000 since the campaign was launched on May 18th.
    • Stone Sour will release its sixth studio album, Hydrograd, on June 30th.
    • The band is currently on the road now as special guests of Korn and next performs on Saturday night (June 24th) in Auburn, Washington.

  • A new Rolling Stone profile on Metallica and the band's current North American tour sheds some light on the way the group's members interact after more than three decades on the road. The four members of the group usually do not see each other during the day on tour until they meet up 20 minutes before showtime in their "tuning room," where they get warmed up before going onstage. When they travel to venues, it’s in separate SUVs, and they keep to themselves unless they’re getting ready for the show, or doing a meet and greet.

    The article cites one moment where frontman James Hetfield seems to be annoyed with the way drummer Lars Ulrich is playing his parts on the song "Wherever I May Roam". Hetfield later says, "The band can still pretty much fall apart at any moment, but we don’t want that. We know too much now. It’s come with time and growing up together, going through tons of s**t together and possibly maturing. I know that’s a strange word in this business, but we care too much. We know where all the nuclear buttons are with each other, but we don’t push ’em. We love what we do, and we want to keep it going."

    • Hetfield told us a while back what keeps him going after 35 years in the band: "Well, for me writing music is like breathing, and being able to create things in a band that has a huge family out there and a following around the world, and be able to get my confusion and questions and insanity into this music and put out to the rest of the world so people can relate...there's no better thing."
    • The article also recounts that after a recent show in Brooklyn, Ulrich immediately went to a party elsewhere in New York, while Hetfield took a trip to New Jersey the next day to let off steam at a firing range.
    • Metallica is touring behind its 10th studio album and first in eight years, Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, which arrived last November.
    • The band's current North American stadium tour is on a break for a couple of weeks but resumes on July 5th in Orlando, Florida.

BILL COSBY TO HOLD SEMINARS ON SEXUAL ASSAULT

Accused sexual perpetrator Bill Cosby is planning a series of town halls this summer to educate young people about sexual assault, according to TMZ. Cosby’s spokespeople Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson told Good Day Alabama that the 79-year-old comedian hopes to teach kids how to handle themselves when they’re out and about and prevent themselves from being accused of assault. Wyatt said: "This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing." He then added: "And it also affects married men." Benson said: "The laws are changing, the statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended, so this is why people need to be educated on a brush against the shoulder." Cosby avoided conviction in his own sexual assault trial after the jury deadlocked and a mistrial was declared. He has been accused of drugging and assaulting dozens of women, but due to statute of limitations, he cannot be tried in most cases. A juror on the trial told ABC News that 10 of the 12 jurors in the assault trial wanted to convict him on two counts of aggravated indecent assault, but they were unable to move forward when the other two jurors refused to budge.

REPORT: CORINNE OLYMPIOS OF 'BACHELOR IN PARADISE' WAIVED RIGHT TO TRIAL

The Bachelor in Paradise contestant who was allegedly sexually assaulted on set is pursuing legal action against the show, despite the fact that she waived her right to trial, according to reports. Corinne Olympios, 24, is barred from suing producers – even if they did not prevent a crime from taking place – but can still make claims against them to an arbitrator, according to the contract for the ABC series obtained by CNN. The terms of the contract also still allow her to press criminal charges against DeMario Jackson, 30, who allegedly assaulted her, and that case could be brought to court. It is unclear at this time how exactly Olympios plans to proceed, but her high-powered Hollywood lawyer Martin Singer does reportedly plan to pursue a legal case. This week, Warner Bros. revealed that an internal investigation found no evidence of a sexual assault taking place and said that they are restarting production of the show, which was stalled during the investigation. Meanwhile, Olympios’ boyfriend Jordan Gielchinsky is speaking out in support of her. "I have known Corinne for over 10 years and as a friend or boyfriend, she will continue to receive my unwavering loyalty and support until I decide that there is a legitimate reason not to give it," he told E! News. The couple reportedly started dating before she left to film Bachelor in Paradise. "I pay very little attention to the media and try to ignore all the conjecture surrounding my relationship with Corinne," he said. "The only two people who know the true disposition of our relationship is Corinne and I." Jackson has also retained a lawyer and issued a statement last week claiming that his character "has been assassinated." While production on the reality series has started again, Jackson has declined an invitation from Warner Bros. to rejoin the cast, TMZ reports. Sources tell the gossip site that he has been suffering from anxiety and has started seeing a therapist due to stress from the scandal.

CELEBRITY GOSSIP

LEAH BLOCK APOLOGIZES FOR RACIST TWEET: The former Bachelor star Leah Block has apologized for a remark she made on Twitter about Rachel Lindsay’s season of Bachelorette. Lindsay is the first African-American contestant to star in a Bachelor franchise show.

Lindsay responded, tweeting: "Let me know if she wants to meet Lee…they sound like they would have a lot in common #ihavetimetoday."

She wrote, in part: "I come forward honestly and openly, to extend my sincere apology for the tweet from my account on Monday, June 19th regarding the current season of The Bachelorette.

PRINCE HARRY RECALLS PRINCESS DIANA’S FUNERAL, WANTS TO MODERNIZE MONARCHY: Prince Harry sat down for a candid conversation with Newsweek, looking back on his mother’s death and looking forward to the future of his country. Of Princess Diana’s funeral, he said: "My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television. I don't think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don't think it would happen today." Following the trauma of her death, he said he "shut down" his emotions, until his brother urged him to get help. Harry also said that he sees being a royal as an opportunity. "We are involved in modernizing the British monarchy. We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people. Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don't think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time." Do you think Harry and William are moving the monarchy forward?

ARIEL WINTER SLAMS STORY THAT SHE GIVES BOYFRIEND ALLOWANCE

No sugar mama here. Ariel Winter put tabloids on blast Wednesday after a report in Star magazine alleged that she gives her boyfriend Levi Meaden an allowance. The 19-year-old fumed: "Star Magazine is obviously a non-reputable source and a trash magazine, but seriously how dare you make up stuff that you have no idea about? I have a BOYFRIEND and a PERSONAL ASSISTANT who are NOT the same person. I would NEVER pay my boyfriend any sort of allowance, nor would he ever accept if I offered. He BUYS his own stuff whether it’s for me or for himself, and he more than pulls his weight for our life. I HATE fake news…" She goes on to point out that Meaden has an established career himself. "He’s not just someone’s boyfriend," she added. "So if you don’t know us, don’t comment. Xoxo." The pair moved in together recently and got matching tattoos earlier this month.
