Quick News

Chris Cornell has confirmed to Rolling Stone that Soundgarden will release a follow-up to 2012's King Animal. The band will work on their new album once the singer is done with his "Higher Truth" solo tour.

Morrissey will release his first fictional book, List of the Lost, next month. This is the former Smith's front man's second book following his 2013 autobiography.

Megadeath frontman Dave Mustaine was famously fired from Metallica in 1983. The band's then had a war of words that would last decades until they made up in the 2004 documentary, Some Kind of Monster. The reconciliation has allowed both parties to perform and tour together. So, when asked if Mustane would ever rejoin Metallica given the chance during a recent Twitter Q&A, he said: "I would be honored, but I would not."

Earlier this summer, Pete Doherty said that the newly reformed Libertines were going to work on the follow-up to their soon-to-be released new LP "As soon as possible." Now, when asked about Doherty's comments, bandmate Carl Barat told NME: "I don’t know. Cor, one step at a time, Martin. I have no idea really. I don’t really think outside of my head for more than 40 seconds at the moment. It’s for good reason, really. I don’t want to jinx it by making plans, but absolutely. That’d be a lovely thing."

Following the success of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon is calling for a Wu biopic. Raekwon told Hot 97: "When we make a Wu movie, bet your ass it's gonna be serious because we gotta tell the truth. I think that's what I love about the Straight Outta Compton movie is that they told the truth. When we do get to that level and it happens, it has to be the real story. It's gonna be an interesting one, cause I said - RZA hit the lotto one day. He knew who he had, but he didn't know what he had. So let's keep it right there."

Speaking to NPR, Twin Shadow discussed the bus accident that happened earlier this year that almost sidelined his career and life. He said: "I think my phone rang, and I reached for it — and right in that moment, I just was thrown across the room and kind of landed with everything that was in the back lounge on top of me. There was a couch that had flipped on top of me, a mattress had come off the bed and was on top of me ... The first thing I realized was that I couldn't pick myself up with my hand, then [I remember] looking at my hand and seeing the bones sticking, kind of making a teepee out of my hand."

Run the Jewels performed at FYF in Los Angeles over the weekend and brought out their friend and famous L.A. resident, former Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach de la Rocha to perform "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)." Sure, they have done this before but then El-P goes and posts the biggest tease of all when he took to Instagram to post a pic of Run the Jewels with Nas and Zach. This leads many to speculating that they are collaborating on RTJ 3. Take a look below:
