The Black Keys contributing new song to upcoming blues compilation


A new The Black Keys song will be included in an upcoming compilation being released via frontman Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label.

The record is titled Tell Everybody! (21st Century Juke Joint Blues from Easy Eye Sound) and "spans the diverse blues spectrum, a payment of respect and admiration for the musicians carrying this American tradition into this century and beyond." The Keys' contribution is a track called "No Lovin'."

Tell Everybody! is due out on August 11. It also includes a new solo track by Auerbach, as well as a guest spot by Joe Walsh. You can listen to the title track, recorded by Robert Finley, now via digital outlets.

The Black Keys previously released a blues covers album, Delta Kream, in 2021. They followed that with their latest original record, 2022's Dropout Boogie.

James Hetfield feels he & Metallica members are "individually ... really average players"

For James Hetfield, Metallica really is greater than the sum of its parts.

In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, the "Enter Sandman" rocker says, "I know individually we’re all really average players."

"But when you put us together something happens," he continues. "Something really happens."

Hetfield also shares that "jamming with people is like a nightmare for me" and admits to feeling "so inadequate" during Metallica's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2009, during which they played with legends like Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page.

"It's a head game for me," Hetfield explains. "I'm a perfectionist. And kind of a people pleaser. Most musicians are insecure."

"This is the album that 16 year old me needed," he continues. "This is the album I was scared to write and the album fans of mine deserve to hear. Above all this is the album where I face a big question: can I handle the changes life throws at me, and if this all that there is to life, can it be enough to be happy?"

I Love You, I'm Trying includes the previously released single "Eulogy." A second track, titled "Drones," is out now via digital outlets.

grandson will launch a U.S. tour in May. K.Flay will also be on the bill for select dates.

In This Moment releases new song "I Would Die for You" for 'John Wick: Chapter 4' soundtrack

Lakeshore Records

In This Moment has released a new song called "I Would Die for You."

The track was recorded for the new movie John Wick: Chapter 4. Both the film and its soundtrack are out now.

"I Would Die for You" follows in the footsteps of Jerry Cantrell's "A Job to Do" and Bush's "Bullet Holes," which were featured in the second and third John Wick movies, respectively. The scores for all four films were composed by Tyler Bates, who used to play guitar in Marilyn Manson's band.

In This Moment's most recent album is 2020's Mother. Last year, they put out an EP called Blood 1983, featuring rerecorded versions of songs off the group's 2012 album, Blood, in honor of its 10th anniversary.

Fall Out Boy's "Dance, Dance" & "Arms Race" video saga continues with "Hold Me Like a Grudge"

ABC/Randy Holmes

Fall Out Boy has premiered the video for "Hold Me Like a Grudge," a track off the band's just-released new album, So Much (for) Stardust.

As previously reported, the clip is a sequel to Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" video, which itself was a sequel to the "Dance, Dance" visual. It picks up with the concert at the end of "Arms Race," with bassist Pete Wentz jumping off the stage, only to break his leg.

Of course, this being a Fall Out Boy video, this soon get very ridiculous — Wentz gets a bionic leg and becomes a superhero, and Fall Out Boy goes on hiatus, leading to the other members pursuing similarly offbeat career paths. Eventually, though, the band's albums start to disappear into dust, Avengers: Infinity War style, and Fall Out Boy must reunite to save the world.

You can watch the "Hold Me Like a Grudge" video streaming now on YouTube.

So Much (for) Stardust is out now. It also includes the singles "Love from the Other Side" and "Heartbreak Feels So Good."

RIP Taylor Hawkins: Foo Fighters drummer died one year ago

Rich Fury/Getty Images

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins died one year ago this Saturday.

On March 25, 2022, Dave Grohl and company were set to headline a festival in Bogotá, Colombia. That night, the Foos tweeted, "The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins." He was 50 years old.

Hawkins was born February 17, 1972. After playing drums in Alanis Morissette's live band in the mid-'90s, Hawkins joined Foo Fighters in 1997 and remained with the group until his death. Hawkins was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame along with the rest of the Foos in 2021.

Following Hawkins' passing, Foo Fighters canceled all their tour dates and live appearances, including a scheduled performance at the Grammys the following weekend.

Eventually, the Foos returned to the live stage in September 2022 with two giant tribute concerts to Hawkins, taking place in London and Los Angeles. The marathon events, which both lasted around six hours, featured guest performances by artists including Paul McCartney, Metallica's Lars Ulrich, AC/DC's Brian Johnson, Joan Jett and Miley Cyrus, as well as members of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Def Leppard, Blink-182 and Black Sabbath.

Both concerts ended with Foo Fighters performing alongside guest drummers, including Hawkins' teenage son Shane, who memorably manned the kit for the song "My Hero."

On New Year's Eve, Foo Fighters announced they intended to continue as a band without Hawkins. A new drummer has yet to be announced. The group's first show back is scheduled for May 24 in New Hampshire, and they'll play a number of festivals, including Bonnaroo, Boston Calling, Sonic Temple and Outside Lands.

Fall Out Boy teases "This Ain't a Scene" sequel with "Hold Me Like a Grudge" video

ABC/Randy Holmes

Fall Out Boy's next video will deliver a long-awaited sequel.

On Friday, the group will premiere the clip for "Hold Me Like a Grudge," a track off the band's upcoming album, So Much (for) Stardust. In a tweet Thursday, Fall Out Boy shares that the video will be a "continuation" of the visual for their 2006 single "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race."

The "This Ain't a Scene" video, of course, is a sequel itself — it picks up at the end of the video for 2005's "Dance, Dance." Perhaps "Hold Me Like a Grudge" will mark the conclusion of a trilogy.

So Much (for) Stardust will also be released Friday. It includes the previously released singles "Love from the Other Side" and "Heartbreak Feels So Good."

It appears Nikki Sixx has joined in on Dolly Parton's rock album.

In a tweet Thursday, the Mötley Crüe bassist shares that he "played bass on a song for Dolly Parton yesterday."

As previously reported, the "9 to 5" star started working on a rock record after her nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. The country legend initially removed herself from consideration for the honor, before ultimately accepting the nomination and later being inducted into the Rock Hall.

Speaking with USA Today earlier this year, Parton revealed that the album will include guest spots from Stevie Nicks, Paul McCartney, Elton John, John Fogerty and Joan Jett, among others.
