  • Royal Blood is at it again. The British duo has posted another video clip online to tease their upcoming second album, following a clip that the band posted back in December right before the holidays. The new video is a 48-second montage of behind-the-scenes footage from the studio where the pair have been working since last year on the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut.

    • The duo’s celebrated debut LP became one of the fastest-selling albums in British music history and was a success in the U.S. as well, yielding the hits "Figure It Out" and "Out Of The Black."
    • It was nominated for the Mercury Prize, one of the most prestigious music awards in the U.K.
    • Singer/bassist Mike Kerr told us a while back that he was astounded at the success the duo had in such a short time: "We didn't anticipate any response really when we started the band, and we had no real agenda at all from the beginning. We were just having a bit of fun. So when I look back and see how far it's come, it's pretty amazing really."
    • The only new music we've heard since the release of the band's debut disc was a song called "Where Are You Now?" which appeared on the soundtrack for HBO’s now-canceled music series Vinyl.
    • Royal Blood already has a string of live appearances coming up this summer, including the Governor's Ball in New York City on June 2nd through the 4th and the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee on June 11th, as well as a full slate of European festivals.

  • Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has confirmed that the first new music from the band's upcoming album Hydrograd will arrive next month. Taylor wrote via Facebook, "Attention. New Stone Sour music coming in April. Spread the word. Tell the world." Taylor did not name which song will be debuting next month. Hydrograd itself, Stone Sour's sixth studio effort, is coming out in June although an exact date has yet to be unveiled.

    Taylor told us recently about the new material: "It is the best stuff that we've ever written. It's got a lot of different directions, but at its core it's very hard rock, almost in a modern/classic sense. There are some hints of punk in there. There's some cool hard rock/heavy metal. There's just all of these really cool elements that we've never maybe allowed ourselves to kind of go to." big choruses. We've got some mellower songs on there too, which are equally just as amazing and have a lot of groove to them."
  • Chow called the record a "bit of a departure" from previous Stone Sour albums.
  • The band recorded the album live in the studio, cutting a total of 18 songs from which 14 or 15 will make the CD.
  • Stone Sour will play the Rock On The Range Kick-Off Party on Thursday, May 18th at Express Live! in Columbus, Ohio. The event will start the Rock On The Range weekend, with Metallica, Soundgarden and Korn headlining this year’s festival.
  • Stone Sour will also be special guests of Korn on the latter act's "Serenity Of Summer" trek, which starts on June 16th in Salt Lake City and wraps on August 2nd in Cleveland.

  • Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said in a new interview with Rolling Stone that although he does not shy away from expressing his feelings about Donald Trump, he prefers not to create a negative experience at the band's concerts. Armstrong explained, "For us, we want to try and keep the energy in the room positive and create a form of unity. First and foremost, I want people to have a really great experience away from the negative press and negative stuff that you see on the news and Facebook."

    When it's pointed out that he shouts out a "f**k you" to Trump every night during the song "American Idiot," Armstrong said, "People know how I feel. I feel like going negative is just throwing fuel on the fire. I feel like the government is trying to create a culture war between us in a lot of ways . . . I want people to feel unity when they come to a show. At the same time, I'm not going to puss out on saying what I feel about him and his administration."

    • Bassist Mike Dirnt added, "I mean, American Idiot wasn't f**k George Bush . . . And I certainly won't give Trump the credit of saying this is a Trump record."
    • The band's latest album, Revolution Radio, debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart last October and features the hits "Bang Bang" and "Still Breathing."
    • Following its current North American leg of dates, Green Day will take a break before heading overseas and then returning to this continent for another round of shows in August.

  • Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will join Sammy Hagar, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood and other artists who will perform at the fourth annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure show, a Bay Area benefit concert held by Hagar and Metallica's James Hetfield to raise money for the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.

    Grohl will actually replace Hetfield on this year's lineup, as Metallica's WorldWired tour will prevent the Metallica frontman from participating for the first time in the event's history. Other appearing this year include Sarah McLachlan, Steve Vai, former Eagles guitarist Don Felder and Pat Benatar. The show will take place at San Francisco's Fillmore on May 15th.

    • Tickets for the Acoustic-4-A-Cure concert go on sale Friday (March 31st) at 10:00 a.m. PT via Live Nation.
    • The show features almost exclusively acoustic performances, such as the one in 2014 during which Hetfield played a surprise cover of the Beatles' "In My Life" before being joined by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong for Bob Seger's "Turn The Page."
    • The 2015 concert featured Hetfield performing Adele's "Crazy For You" alongside his teen daughter Cali.
    • The benefit was created by Hagar and Hetfield, while other artists who have appeared in the past include Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell, John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith and more.

      Cuba Gooding Jr. lifted up Sarah Paulson’s dress during an American Horror Story: Roanoke event and while she laughed it off, fans and commenters did not appreciate his hands-on approach.

      As fellow co-star Kathy Bates was being introduced at L.A.’s PaleyFest on Sunday, Paulson, 42, greeted her. That’s when Gooding, 49, grabbed her dress from behind and took a peek.

      • Blanchett, 47, is married to Australian playwright Andrew Upton. They share four children together: Dashiell John, 15; Roman Robert, 12; Ignatius Martin, 8; and Edith Vivian Patricia, whose adoption the couple announced three years ago.
