  • Beastie Boys will roll out a series of premieres for their star-studded, 30-minute short movie “Fight for Your Right Revisited” across MTV and VH1 networks beginning tonight (April 19) at midnight, according to a statement from the band. The long-form version of the movie will hit MTV2, mtvU, and VH1 Classic at 12 A.M., while both a shortened and explicit version will air throughout the following week.

  • Blink-182 have rescheduled their European tour this summer in order to finish up their new album. “The album is taking longer than we thought and won’t be out ’till later this year,” they wrote in a statement on their site. “We hoped we would have some new songs to play rather than do another ‘greatest hits tour.'” Check out their rescheduled dates at their official site.

  • Check out a hot, bouncy new song from Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche, titled “Private Caller.” The song will be included on his sixth album, due out June 7. [via TwentyFourBit]
