The Smashing Pumpkins have released another song from their forthcoming album, Monuments to an Elegy. The new track, "Drum + Fife," is inspired by Irish folk music while also incorporating electronic beats and loops. You can stream "Drum + Fife" on NME's website.
Hinder has returned, and they've brought a new lead singer with them. Not only has the band announced they'll release a new album -- their fifth -- in 2015, the currently-untitled record will be Hinder's first with new lead singer Nolan Neal, who replaced Austin Winkler after Winkler departed the band last year.
Earlier this year, Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood said that the band would start working on their next album in September. Well, September has come and gone without any news, save for a surprise Thom Yorke solo album on BitTorrent. Not to worry, though -- Greenwood has confirmed that Radiohead is currently in the studio.
Having already conquered late-night television with their week-long residency on The Late Show with David Letterman last month, Foo Fighters have set their sights on daytime. The band played The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, performing their New Orleans-inspired song "In the Clear" in support of their new album, Sonic Highways.
Dave Grohl isn't the biggest fan of technology. At the 2012 Grammys, Grohl famously said, "The human element of music is what's important," and later clarified that statement by saying, "Some of these great advances [in technology] have taken the focus off of the actual craft of performance." Now, he says that computers have made us forget one important thing: how to rock out.
"People have forgotten what it’s like to really rock out because they spend all day in front of a freakin’ computer, which they hail as the new god," he tells Red Bulletin. They seriously think technology can make them rich, if they stumble on something new. But I’m telling you: technology might make you rich, yet it will never make you happy."
If you share Grohl's anti-computer stance, you may also appreciate his "Beat the Bots Box-Office Only" pre-sale for the upcoming 2015 Foo Fighters tour. The idea is to combat online ticket scalpers by having people physically line up at box offices around the country. A list of box office locations can be found on the Foo Fighter website.
