Bad Wolves drop 'Die About It' title track

Better Noise Music

Bad Wolves have dropped a new song called "Die About It," the title track off the band's upcoming album.

The track features rapping vocals from frontman Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz leading into the chorus, which goes, "No one cares who it is that you blame today/ Hope you find help you need/ So your soul can change/ I'm not your enemy/ Just set yourself free." The song doesn't specifically mention who it is about, but you may recall ex-Bad Wolves vocalist Tommy Vext left the group under less-than-amicable circumstances.

You can listen to "Die About It" now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming on YouTube.

The album Die About It, Bad Wolves' second with DL in the band, arrives November 3. It also includes the songs "Bad Friend" and "Legends Never Die."

Bad Wolves are going on tour with Bush in November.

The Killers' "Mr. Brightside" was first released as a single on September 29, 2003 — 20 years ago Friday.

In a Facebook post acknowledging the anniversary, Brandon Flowers and company write, "20 years of 'Mr. Brightside.' Sounds as good as the first time we played it every time we play it."

The post also includes a video montage of many different "Mr. Brightside" performances from over the last two decades.

"Mr. Brightside" was not only the lead single off The Killers' debut album, 2004's Hot Fuss, it was the band's first single ever. It reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has become The Killers' signature song and one of the defining tracks of the 2000s alternative scene.

The Killers have since released six more albums, the most recent being 2021's Pressure Machine.

Marilyn Manson settles with Jane Doe over rape lawsuit

Marilyn Manson has reached a settlement with an anonymous Jane Doe who accused him of rape, Rolling Stone and Billboard report.

In a statement, a lawyer for Manson, born Brian Warner, says, "Brian is pleased that, just as previous lawsuits were abandoned without payment or settled for pennies on the dollar, this plaintiff has now agreed to drop her suit in exchange for an insurance payment representing a fraction of her demands and far less than the cost to Brian of proceeding to trial."

Meanwhile, Doe tells Rolling Stone, "I was fully prepared for trial and never in a million years thought I would ever settle, but over the past two-and-a-half years I have silently endured threats, bullying, harassment and various forms of intimidation that have intensified over the past few weeks."

"Marilyn Manson attended my deposition, and I was forced to answer seven hours of aggressive questioning with him staring at me from across the table," Doe continues. "I've been told that this almost never happens, as it's cruel, and that a main reason for it would be to intimidate and inflict emotional distress on a victim.

Doe concludes, "I never cared about money and only ever wanted justice, but if we had gone to trial, I could have lost my right to anonymity and been victim-blamed on a large and public scale. Most importantly I could have risked losing the freedom to tell my story, and that is worth more than anything in the world.”

Doe's suit, which was filed in 2021 and alleges Warner raped her in 2011, came after Warner's ex Evan Rachel Wood publicly accused him of abuse in 2021. Warner was later sued by actor Esmé Bianco, model Ashley Morgan Smithline and his former assistant Ashley Walters. Warner has denied all allegations.

Bianco and Walters' suits were settled and dismissed, respectively, while Smithline retracted her allegations.

If you are affected by abuse and needing support, or know someone who is, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233, or the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673). You can also chat online at or, respectively.

courtesy of Live Nation

It’s going to take Aerosmith a bit longer to say Peace Out to the road.

The band kicked off their Peace Out farewell tour in early September but were forced to postpone several dates after frontman Steven Tyler injured his vocal cords. Well, it seems Tyler needs even more time to recover because they’ve pushed back the whole tour to next year.

“Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought. His doctor has confirmed that in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, he fractured his larynx which requires ongoing care,” read a statement from the band. “He is receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is swift, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential.”

Tyler adds, “I am heartbroken to not be out there with Aerosmith, my brothers and the incredible Black Crowes, rocking with the best fans in the world. I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”

Aerosmith says the tour will resume “sometime in 2024" and that new dates will be announced “as soon as we know more.” All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new shows, and fans will be able to get refunds if they are unable to attend the rescheduled dates.

The tour, featuring special guests The Black Crowes, kicked off September 2 in Philadelphia and was supposed to run through February 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.

ABC/Michael Desmond

Blink-182's new single "ONE MORE TIME" has got the band members and their fans pretty emotional.

The title track to Blink's upcoming comeback album premiered on September 21 alongside a video featuring Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker taking a journey through a collage of the band's past clips. Meanwhile, the song details the trio's personal hardships with lyrics such as, "Do I have to die to hear you miss me," a possible reference to Hoppus' 2021 cancer battle, which led to DeLonge's return to Blink after a seven-year absence.

In an Instagram post reacting to the response to "ONE MORE TIME," Blink writes, "We just wanted to thank each and every one of you for all the love and support over the past week, months, years."

"Seeing you at the shows, reading all of your amazing comments and having you on this journey with us gives this band life," the post continues. "We cannot wait for you to hear the rest of this album! So from the 3 of us…WE LOVE YOU & THANK YOU."

The album ONE MORE TIME...will be released on October 20. It marks the first Blink record featuring DeLonge, Hoppus and Barker in over 10 years.

Blink-182's currently in the middle of the European leg of their reunion tour. They'll be back in the U.S. in October to headline the When We Were Young festival in Las Vegas.

Are you gonna buy my music? Jet catalog acquired by BMG


Jet's catalog is now in the hands of BMG.

The international music publishing company and record label has acquired the global royalty stream to the Australian rockers' first two albums, 2003's Get Born and 2006's Shine On.

The deal also includes the Australian and New Zealand rights to those two albums as well as global rights to Jet's third, most recent album, 2009's Shaka Rock.

"With big decisions like this it comes down to personal relationships," says Jet drummer Chris Cester. "We've known the BMG team for years. We're already with BMG for our publishing and they do what they say they're gonna do. That's a rare thing in this business. Sooner or later you figure out that's the only thing that matters, if you're serious about what you do."

Jet broke out with Get Born and its singles "Are You Gonna Be My Girl," "Rollover D.J.," "Look What You've Done" and "Cold Hard B****." After releasing Shine On and Shaka Rock, they broke up in 2012 before reuniting from 2016 to 2019. Jet has since reformed again to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Get Born with an Australian tour, which kicked off in September.
