• Primus Willy Wonka Concept Album Free Tickets

    Primus Offers Five Fans Concert Tickets for Life in 'Willy Wonka'-Inspired Album Release

    Primus' Willy Wonka-inspired album Primus and the Chocolate Factory With the Fungi Ensemble is already streaming thanks to the New York Times, but as its official release approaches on October 21 they've announced a little more exciting news about the rollout. Like the golden ticket campaign that spurs the action in Roald Dahl's novel and the Gene Wilder-starring film, Primus has decided to offer a pretty special reward to anyone who ends up purchasing one of five gold copies of the new record. Should you happen to come across one, you'll be granted free entry to any Primus show for life. Rolling Stone points out that the exciting news comes with a video released by Les Claypool's proggy crew that recalls the opening sequence of the film, but instead of showing the production of chocolate, it depicts the process of cutting the band's chocolate-colored LP. Watch that above.

  • Pearl Jam Moline New Song Video No Code Video

    Pearl Jam Wrote and Performed a New Song 'Moline' in Moline, Illinois

    Pearl Jam is still deep in the midst of touring for their 2013 album Lightning Bolt, but it seems they're already looking ahead. According to Stereogum, at their Friday night show in Moline, Illinois, Eddie Vedder debuted a tensile new acoustic ballad called "Moline" saying that he'd written it ten minutes before the show started. The Illinois locals certainly seemed to appreciate the lyrical reference to their city, but if that weren't enough fans in attendance were also treated to a full performance of the band's fourth album No Code. You can watch fan-shot footage of the new track above and from the No Code performance below.

    Foo Fighters weeklong residency on the Late Show With David Letterman finally rolled to a close Friday night. After some special performances throughout the week with Zac Brown, Heart, and Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Friday night's performance was all Foos as they barreled through their riotous new single "Something From Nothing." The alt-rock icons also took over Letterman's Top Ten list segment for a list of the "Top Ten Things Foo Fighters Would Like to Say After Spending a Week at the Late Show." You can catch the live clip above and the list below.But just because these segments aired on Friday doesn't mean that the band wasn't staying as busy as ever. According to Consequence of Sound, the band's performance was actually recorded Thursday night so that Friday night could be used for a special live set in Chicago.

  • Camron Ebola Mask Joke Dipset

    Cam'ron Is Trying to Stop Ebola With Custom Surgical Masks

    As this summer's Ebola outbreak continues to spread and the general climate around the whole thing creeps closer toward complete global panic, we could use a leader to step up and make us all feel ok. And who better to do so than Cam'ron, who took to Instagram on Thursday to offer his plan for stopping the spread of the gruesome disease: surgical masks with Cam'ron's face on them. The one problem, obviously, is that Ebola can't be transmitted through the air, so the masks wouldn't help too much. But hey, they look pretty cool, so even though the whole thing is winking joke from Killa Cam, it might still be worth your $20. Check a picture below via The Fader and order it over at Cam's Dipset USA webstore. And who knows, maybe he knows something we don't. Maybe Dipset could save us all. Loading View on Instagram

  • Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Trailer Thursday Something From Nothing

    Foo Fighters Will Release 'Sonic Highways' Single 'Something From Nothing' This Week

    Foo Fighters have offered a pretty steady stream of brief tidbits from their eighth studio album Sonic Highways, but they've finally let word out that you'll be able to stream a whole track from that record, "Something From Nothing" this week. On Thursday October 16 at 10 a.m. Central time, the track will reportedly premiere on a Houston radio station, at which point it will undoubtedly be available on the internet.

  • Death Grips Powers that B Final Album Complete

    Death Grips Have Finished Their Last Album 'The Powers That B'

    The noise-rap aesthetes in Death Grips were presumed defunct since they announced their dissolution a couple of months ago, but apparently they've still been hard at work in the meantime. In a Facebook post on Friday, the crew announced that they'd finally finished the powers that b, their final album that we've heard half of already in the form of niggas on the moon. That same post notes that they've be announcing a release date any day now, but given their typically unpredictable release strategies, don't be surprised if it just pops up out of the blue. The second half of the record is reportedly called jenny death, and it seems pretty safe to assume that any physical release would include both halves. So if you're mourning the loss of SPIN's 2012 Artist of the Year, don't fret too much—you should be hearing more from them pretty imminently.

  • Flaming Lips Miley Cyrus Moby Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds Cover Stream

    Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus Go Kaleidoscopic on 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' Cover

    After months of Instagram teasers and live debuts of covers from the record, the Flaming Lips have finally announced the October 28 release of their Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band tribute album, With a Little Help From My Fwends. In addition to starting a PledgeMusic pre-order campaign, the Austin psych-poppers have also offered up the studio version of their Miley Cyrus-led "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" cover (which also features electro-godhead Moby).

  • David Bowie Sue Or In A Season Of Crime Nothing Has Changed Stream

    Hear David Bowie's Monolithic, Jazzy 'Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)'

    Back in July, David Bowie promised "more music soon" to a charity event celebrating his 50-year career. It became apparent soon after that the music would take the form of a new single called "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)" and career-spanning compilation cheekily named Nothing Has Changed. Today, after its premiere on Guy Garvey's BBC Radio 6 show, Consequence of Sound points out that a radio rip of that new single has surfaced on Youtube, and it's a doozy.Clocking in at over seven and a half minutes long, "Sue" offers a whole spectrum of serpentine jazz pop—chockfull of rubbery grooves indebted to krautrock and Bowie's ever-present high drama. As ever, production duties were handled by Tony Visconti, but this time the duo brought along the Maria Schneider Orchestra to handle the strings and brass that mark the tune.Pitchfork notes a few new details about the compilation.

  • Eddie Vedder Pearl Jam John Lennon Imagine Cover Video

    Pearl Jam Celebrated John Lennon's Birthday With Two Classic Covers

    Over the course of his career with Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder has offered a handful of recorded tributes to the legacy of John Lennon, so it's no secret that the Lightning Bolt singer is a big fan. Friday night, he made good on that longtime fandom and offered up a striking tribute in honor of what would have been the Beatles founder's 74th birthday. The Seattle quintet paused in the midst of their Lincoln, Nebraska set to offer up the Beatles' "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and Lennon's solo classic "Imagine." Studio versions of both are available, the former thanks to the soundtrack of the 2001 film I Am Sam and the latter thanks to a recent cover for charity. You can watch video of "Imagine" above and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" below via Consequence of Sound, alongside video of a location-specific cover of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska track "Open All Night."

  • Nickelback Chad Kroeger London

    Chad Kroeger Thinks the Campaign to Keep Nickelback Out of London is 'Hilarious'

    A vehement Nickelback detractor by the name Craig Mandall launched a campaign last week to attempt to ban the Canadian band from performing in London ever again. At the time we said that there was about a "zero percent chance" of the band paying it any notice and singer Chad Kroeger has confirmed as much in an interview with The Pulse of Radio, via Metal Hammer, calling the campaign "hilarious.""[The] more controversy that surrounds either myself, my personal life, the band, whatever – I think it's hilarious," Kroeger explained. "All these critics, they're just tireless. They keep ragging on the band. If they had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago.
