The now infamous Baby Trump balloon that was created in protest of the President's recent visit to London, made a stop at a Pearl Jam concert. During their London performance Tuesday night (July 17), fans were greeted by the dirigible as they entered the arena.

The band has been extremely vocal about their distaste for Trump and Eddie Vedder said this to the London crowd: "I know at home it feels very divisive. And it feels like he's added such divisive energy to how we get along back home, but then I realized the other day watching all the protests down in the square… there were 250,000. He's actually bringing people together."

Vedder's wife, Jill posted a photo and urged people to vote and said, "Yesterday’s meeting was terrifying, to say the least."

Pearl Jam's European leg of the tour has now ended and will kick off again with a series of baseball stadium appearances, starting Aug. 8 at Seattle's Safeco Field.

A new Beartooth song leaked out to fans, so the band decided to keep the leak flowing. Not only did they post a link to the leaked song, titled "Infection", they also shared details of their next album, including a look at the artwork.

Lead vocalist, Caleb Shomo wrote on Instagram, "After a year and a half of coming up with the title and concept, writing songs, writing more songs, (and…) writing more songs, tracking, writing more songs, recording, mixing, having panic attacks, losing countless hours of sleep, traveling thousands and thousands of miles, laughing, crying, and non-stop rocking… I have finished my masterpiece."

The official track listing shows 12 new songs from the upcoming album called Disease. Although they didn't define a release date, they teased the fact that something big is happening on July 23.

Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy will compose the score for the short film called Wonderland. It's a modern interpretation of the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and will touch on inequality in Hollywood, particularly the struggle of women in the entertainment industry. American Gods actress Yetide Badaki is set to star.

Stump told Entertainment Weekly, "When you’re doing a score, it’s kind of like acting, really, because you have to get in the head of a character, whereas with Fall Out Boy, if I’m writing a song, I’m going to have to get on stage every night and sing that. It’s really for me." He went on to explain, "Writing a song is more — not selfish, but you’re focused on what you would want, whereas in a film you’re just focused on telling the story."

The short film is slated to begin production next month.
