Greta Van Fleet have announced the rescheduled dates of their tour, which they recently postponed due to singer Josh Kiszka rupturing his eardrum.

Kiszka initially announced the injury on social media last month (October 18), saying that their shows in Raleigh, Greenville and Jacksonville would be rescheduled to later dates.

After returning to play six dates late last month, the band then postponed the remaining four shows of their North American tour.

In a video message, Kiszka said that the last couple of shows had been “beautiful and awe-inspiring” but that while his eardrum was continuing to heal it was still causing him “a great deal of physical pain”. He also thanked fans for their support during a “truly humbling year”.

The band have now announced that the rescheduled dates will take place in March 2023 – see full dates below and find tickets here.

Greta Van Fleet are still due to play two nights in Atlantic City as well as dates in New Jersey and Los Angeles – all scheduled for December. Tickets to those dates can still be purchased here.

The tour comes in support of the band’s 2021 album, ‘The Battle At Garden’s Gate’. In an interview with NME Greta Van Fleet said the band’s sophomore studio album “was really liberating. We knew exactly what we were going to do – we were gonna create an album that was big and unfuckwithable”.

In other news, the band were recently announced as part of Metallica‘s forthcoming ‘Helping Hands’ benefit concert.

The show, which is set to go ahead at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 16, will be streamed on Paramount+ and MTV’s YouTube channel at 5.30pm local time.

Greta Van Fleet will provide support and Jimmy Kimmel will host the benefit concert. All proceeds will go to the band’s charity All Within My Hands. Any remaining tickets for the concert can be purchased here.

Lars Ulrich thought “for sure” that Metallica’s new album ’72 Seasons’ would leak

The metal veterans shared details of their new record, single and world tour yesterday

The post Lars Ulrich thought “for sure” that Metallica’s new album ’72 Seasons’ would leak appeared first on NME.

NME

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has admitted that he thought his band’s new album ’72 Seasons’ would leak.

The metal veterans shared details of their new record and first single ‘Lux Æterna’ yesterday (November 28) along with with news of a huge world tour for 2023 and 2024.

The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct‘ will arrive on April 14, 2023, with the European leg of the metal icons’ world tour – which includes the previously announced Download Festival headline slots – kicking off the same month.

Speaking in a new interview on The Howard Stern Show, Ulrich said: “We’ve been working on a new album for the last year, year-and-a-half – our COVID lockdown record.

“And the one thing that we’ve done all through that is for the first time in our career, we never really talked about it. So, rather than, ‘Hey, there’s a new record’ and countdowns and, ‘Guess what’s coming your way?’ and all that kind of shit, we’ve been tight-fucking-lipped about it. We thought for sure this thing would leak. It hasn’t fucking leaked.”

Speaking about the inspiration behind the forthcoming new record’s name in a press release, frontman James Hetfield said: “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

The European leg of Metallica’s world tour will kick off in Amsterdam on April 27, 2023, making stops in Paris, Hamburg and Gothenburg throughout May and June, before continuing in North America. The band will then return to Europe for the second leg through May, June and July 2024, followed by further dates in North America.

Legacy member pre-sale starts 9am local time on Wednesday (November 30), while Fifth Member pre-sale starts 11am local time. A general sale will then start at 9am local time on Friday (December 2) here.

The album can also be pre-ordered in digital and physical format here from Wednesday (November 30).

Meanwhile, Metallica recently announced plans to live stream their forthcoming ‘Helping Hands’ benefit concert next month.

The show, which is set to go ahead at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 16, will be streamed on Paramount+ and MTV’s YouTube channel at 5.30pm local time.

Fall Out Boy take out newspaper ads to tease new album

The new release will be the follow-up to 2018’s ‘M A N I A’

The post Fall Out Boy take out newspaper ads to tease new album appeared first on NME.

NME

Fall Out Boy have teased their return with new music via a newspaper ad – see below.

The ad, which was spotted in the Chicago Tribune, has the words “FOB 8” followed by the phrase “If you build it, they will come” all against a black background.

Fans have been speculating that this is linked to an as yet unannounced new album from the band. The group’s last full-length release was 2018’s ‘M A N I A’, which NME described as “worlds away from the smart pop-punk of 2003 debut ‘Take This To Your Grave’ or the rousing emo of 2005’s ‘From Under The Cork Tree'” in a three star review.

Fall Out Boy also released their 2003 mini album ‘Evening Out With Your Girlfriend’ on streaming services in full for the very first time last year.

Earlier this year, Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman revealed that the band were recently working on “guitar-based” new material that is now on the “back burner”.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in September about his new memoir, None Of This Rocks, he revealed that this particular set of music appears to have now been set aside, saying: “We were working on some stuff that was guitar-based. I don’t know know what’s happening with it. I think it unfortunately went to the back burner. It would be nice to make a record where the guitar is a little more upfront.

“We did start that way, as a guitar-based rock band, and it’d be cool to go back to those roots. We’d have to find a way to do it that doesn’t sound like Fall Out Boy from 2005. It might be cool for somebody else to do that, but it wouldn’t be cool for us to do it.”

Elsewhere, the band headed out on the rescheduled UK and European leg of their ‘Hella Mega Tour’ this summer with Weezer and Green Day.

News of the Hella Mega Tour came back in September 2019 when each of the three bands shared new tracks simultaneously alongside announcing the run of gigs. On the same day, Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer played a surprise intimate show in Los Angeles.

Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford debuts new band 7D7D with single ‘Capitalism’

Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford has formed a new side project entitled 7D7D.

Commerford has teamed up with Wakrat drummer Mathias Wakrat and guitarist Jonny Polonsky – who previously worked with the Rage bassist during the latter’s time in Audioslave – for his latest venture.

The band have also shared their debut single ‘Capitalism’ on Mad Bunny Records, which you can listen to below.

No matter where I am / I’m in hell,” Commerford sings over Wakrat’s funky and frenetic drum pattern and Polonsky’s searing riffs.

No further details of an upcoming album or tour have yet been released.

Meanwhile, Rage Against The Machine recently cancelled all of their remaining ‘Public Service Announcement’ tour dates following Zack de la Rocha‘s leg injury in Chicago over the summer.

He said at the time: “It’s been almost three months since Chicago, and I still look down at my leg in disbelief. Two years of waiting through the pandemic, hoping we would have an opening to be a band again and continue the work we started 30 some odd years ago. Rehearsing, training, reconciling, working our way back to form. Then one and a half shows into it and my tendon tears.

“Felt like a sick joke the universe played on me. As I write this, I remind myself it’s just bad circumstance. Just a fucked up moment. Unfortunately it is a moment that requires a lot of work and healing. I have a severe tear in my left Achilles tendon and only 8 per cent of my tendon was left intact. And even that portion was severely compromised.

“It’s not simply a question of being able to perform again, but extends to basic functionality going forward. That’s why I’ve made the painful and difficult decision to cancel the remaining shows on our 2023 North American leg.”

Rage Against The Machine were also forced to cancel their 2022 UK and Europe shows, due to “medical guidance” given to de la Rocha following his injury.

Meanwhile, young musical prodigy Nandi Bushell recently shared a video of her jamming with her younger brother to Rage Against The Machine‘s 1992 classic ‘Killing In The Name’.

Manchester music legends speak in support of Night & Day as venue hearing against council begins

Elbow’s Guy Garvey is among artists to speak out in support of the “essential” Manchester music venue

The post Manchester music legends speak in support of Night & Day as venue hearing against council begins appeared first on NME.

NME

A number of Manchester music legends have voiced their support for Night & Day as the venue’s hearing against the council begins today (November 29).

Last month it emerged that Night & Day was facing a court case over a noise complaint that could see its potential closure. More than 94,000 people have since signed a petition to remove the Noise Abatement Notice.

News of the development saw Elbow frontman Guy Garvey speak out over the matter, in which he described it as “a shameful disgrace”, adding “we are furious”.

Garvey, who performed with Elbow at the venue in the early days of the band forming, last week described Night & Day as an “essential” independent venue “that took it upon themselves to look after the city’s music and art”.

The 1975’s Matty Healy – who performed some of the band’s formative gigs at the venue – also weighed in on the controversy, telling Apple Music’s Zane Lowe last month: “It’s like moving to Leicester Square and complaining about there being too many cinemas!”

The historic venue also hosted early performances from the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Wet Leg.

Additionally, Manchester-based quintet The Goa Express have spoken about how “gutting” it would be to see another “vital” independent venue close down.

“It’s just such a big part of Manchester,” bassist Naham Muzaffar said. “People come because they want to go out and explore the city. If they are going to be shutting at 22:00 because they can’t have a DJ set, where else are people gonna go?

“What other venues are going to be dealing with the same consequences?”

Music Venue Trust boss Mark Davyd, meanwhile, described the situation facing Night & Day as the “worst example, anywhere in the country” of one being left in such a “difficult position”.

“Manchester City Council are going to court saying Night & Day must change the nature of their business to accommodate a premises that never should have been allowed to be built,” he added. “So it’s a ridiculous situation.”

Ben Smithson, who manages the venue with his wife Jennifer, told the BBC they are “stressed out of our minds” about the hearing, adding that they are “praying it goes our way”.

“We can’t believe where we are, and why,” he added. “We just don’t understand why the council are going forward with this, we gave them plenty of opportunity to drop it behind closed doors.”

A Manchester City Council spokesman told the BBC it “remains supportive of the music scene in Manchester which Night & Day has championed”, but that it had to “comply with our duties in respect of statutory nuisance”.

Shame launch new album ‘Food For Worms’ at raucous boat gig on River Thames

The band debuted new tracks from their upcoming third LP aboard the Tamesis Dock

NME

Last night (November 28), Shame debuted tracks from their upcoming third album ‘Food For Worms’ during a raucous and sweaty gig aboard a boat on the River Thames. See footage and the setlist below.

As announced this month, the band’s new album will land on February 24, 2023 via Dead Oceans as the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Drunk Tank Pink’. The record has been described as “a celebration of life” and “an ode to friendship”, with frontman Charlie Steen labelling it as “the Lamborghini of Shame records”.

Aboard the Tamesis Dock in Vauxhall, the band shared previewed a number of new tracks as well as favourites from their previous two albums. They opened the set with ‘The Fall Of Paul’, a new song that packed all the trademark relentless punch of Shame but with a new, anthemic element.

This more melodic, expansive sound was also evident on recent comeback single ‘Fingers Of Steel’, as well as new cuts in the form of the slow and triumphant new ‘Adderall’ and set highlight ‘Yankees’ – which exploded into a huge chorus that swapped the band’s usual shouted vocal for melodic singing. The punk backbone of the band still shone though, most notably on new one ‘Six-Pack’, which was led by a wailing guitar riff and raucous energy.

Frontman Charlie Steen told the crowd that the band wrote ‘Food For Worms’ in a lightning fast burst at the start of this year, when their management noticed the writers’ block they had been experiencing across 2021 and set them a challenge where they would play a set of all-new music at the Brixton Windmill in a fortnight (under the pseudonym Almost Seamus). Forced to write quickly and without inhibition, the songs that make up the new album flowed easily after a while.

Back on the crammed vessel on London’s South Bank, Steen spent half the set climbing up the balcony, into the crowd, and causing all manner of chaos. While new songs from ‘Food For Worms’ formed the crux of the set, the likes of ‘Tasteless’, ‘Alphabet’ and ‘Dust On Trial’ were reminders of the band’s brilliance and perfect for this sweaty and claustrophobic environment.

“I don’t think we’ve played in London for a very long time, and it feels very nice to be back with friends and family,” Steen told the crowd before a crazed rendition of early single ‘Concrete’. By the time they closed the set with debut single ‘One Rizla’, ‘Drunk Tank Pink’ highlight ‘Snow Day’ and the seedy ‘Gold Hole’, the windows of the boat were steamed up and sweat was dripping from the ceiling. They’re dye play Brixton Academy next year, but this was Shame in their ideal setting: intimate, loud and chaotic.

Watch Ozzy Osbourne introduce WWE Survivor Series with Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’

NME

Ozzy Osbourne made a surprise cameo in a video package for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) over the weekend, as the company held its annual Survivor Series event.

The show, which took place on Saturday night (November 26) in Boston, used two of Osbourne’s songs as themes: ‘Parasite’, the Zakk Wylde-featuring track from his latest album ‘Patient Number 9’, and the Black Sabbath song ‘War Pigs’. The latter was used in the show’s introduction, in anticipation of the “War Games” stipulation match that pits two teams of five wrestlers against one another across two rings and inside a steel cage.

In the video, footage of Osbourne singing along to ‘War Pigs’ while sitting in a throne is interspersed with shots of wrestlers such as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns (the cousin of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), Drew McIntyre and the WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair.

At the conclusion of the package, Osbourne says “Welcome to War Games”, before letting out his signature evil laugh. Watch the video below:

In a press conference that took place after the event, WWE Hall Of Famer and current head of creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque revealed that he had been in talks with Osbourne to appear at Survivor Series in person and perform ‘War Pigs’ live. However, Levesque noted that “the timing wasn’t right” and a deal was struck to film Osbourne’s video appearance instead.

Osbourne has appeared at several WWE events over the years, with his first appearance for the company taking place in 1986 at WrestleMania in Chicago. There, he accompanied the tag team The British Bulldogs to the ring for their match against The Dream Team. In 2007, Osbourne appeared live on an episode of WWE Smackdown to perform his song ‘I Don’t Wanna Stop’, which was the theme song for that year’s Judgment Day event.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne made a joint appearance on WWE Raw in 2009, where they served as the show’s guest hosts. In both 2020 and 2021, Osbourne’s 2019 song ‘Straight To Hell’ was used as the theme song for the company’s Hell In A Cell events. Osbourne was later inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, joining the hall’s celebrity wing for his appearances and contributions to the company.

‘Patient Number 9’, Osbourne’s 13th solo album, was released in September. In a four-star reviewNME described the album as “something of a miracle”.

“At 73 years old and battling with his health, you might not expect Osbourne to keep that bar particularly high,” it read. “But, for the most part, ‘Patient Number 9’ does just that – it’s a fizzing piece of hard-rock magic.”

The Charlatans’ frontman Tim Burgess released his fifth solo album, ‘Typical Music’ in September. He told NME in a recent interview that the 22-track double album felt like his equivalent of The Beatles‘ ‘White Album’. “I’ve always thought I had a ‘White Album’ in me!… I’ve always wanted to do [a double album]. I thought I could do one on the last one [2020’s ‘I Love The New Sky’], but just run out of time – not songs, I ran out of time. And with this one, I wanted to just give everything that I had, and that was 22 songs,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Ride marked the 30th anniversary of ‘Nowhere’ and its 1992 follow-up ‘Going Blank Again’ with new vinyl reissues and a UK tour.
