311 Return With New Single 'You're Gonna Get It'

311 Return With New Single 'You're Gonna Get It'

311 recently released a new single, "You're Gonna Get It," their first release since their 2019 album, Voyager.

"You're Gonna Get It" is a high-energy song that deals with the realization that all actions have consequences, even if they aren't immediate.

The band debuted the song live earlier this year at their infamous 311 Day event in Las Vegas.

The song arrived with a music video that features the band in the center of an underground fighting ring, with vocalist Nick Hexum in the middle of a boxing match.

"The story behind the lyrics to 'You're Gonna Get It' is going back into the mindset of when we were young, and dumb and doing a lot of crazy stuff," shares Hexum. "Sometimes getting away with it, sometimes with consequences. And I'm going in and out of the first person saying to myself, 'Get your stuff together! Or else you're gonna get it.'"

311 released the new track via their tech startup, SKP.

Halestorm have teamed up with I Prevail for a new single, "can u see me in the dark?"

Halestorm and I Prevail are set to embark on a co-headlining North American tour. The trek, produced by Live Nation, kicks off on July 9th in Raleigh, North Carolina. The final concert of the tour is scheduled to take place on August 17th in Las Vegas.

"We're excited to finally have a song come out," said Vanlerberghe via a press release. "It was a fun challenge to blend the Halestorm and I Prevail sounds together. We really focused on creating a music bed that felt very much I Prevail and letting Lzzy just shine and do what she does best."

He added, "I feel we found a very sick way to blend the two identities of our bands into one massive song. I'm really looking forward to this tour and possibly playing this song live together for everyone."

"In celebration of our upcoming tour together, we joined forces with the boys of I Prevail and wrote an original song together," said Hale. "'can u see me in the dark?' is written for our collective fan bases, our community, our family. We want you to know that you are seen and you are not alone shining through life's myriad of joy and pain. We can't wait to feast our eyes on you this summer!"

MC5 Announce First New Album In 53 Years 'Heavy Lifting'

MC5 Announce First New Album In 53 Years 'Heavy Lifting'

MC5 have announced they will release a new album, titled Heavy Lifting, on October 18th via EarMusic. The record will mark the band's first studio release in 53 years.

Bob Ezrin produced the album , which was spearheaded by the late founding guitarist of the band, Wayne Kramer. The album features performances by original MC5 drummer Dennis Thomson, who passed away in May, on two songs.

Slash, Tom Morello, Alice in Chains' William DuVall, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid and Don Was are among the guests featured on the upcoming record. Kramer co-wrote 12 of the album's 13 songs.

The album is "very heavy," said producer Ezrin. "It has a revolutionary message but also a good sense of humor. There's a little bit of heavy metal. There's quite a bit of funk. But it is a heavy record, and it's a guitar record left, right and center."

"Just a wall of guitars most of the time, and mostly driven by Wayne and his ethos," he added. "It's a snapshot of a guitar man at the height of his powers. We all feel a responsibility to make sure that his work is heard, and he is celebrated. We poured our hearts into the project." The record will be available in CD, vinyl and digital formats; two-CD and two-LP versions featuring bonus tracks of MC5 classics will also be available.

The Who's Pete Townshend To Release 14-CD 'Live > In Concert 1985-2001' Box Set

The Who's Pete Townshend To Release 14-CD 'Live > In Concert 1985-2001' Box Set

UMR has announced Pete Townshend Live > In Concert 1985-2001, an expanded 14-CD box set and digital set featuring seven long-out-of-print live albums by The Who founder Pete Townshend, will be released on July 26.

The set is available for pre-order now at https://petetownshend.lnk.to/liveinconcert

Newly remastered by Jon Astley at Close To The Edge, the set gathers together for the first time all of the live solo recordings that were only available via Townshend's website, Eel Pie. All of the albums have been out of print for two decades.

The box set features expanded deluxe packaging in a CD-size hard slip case and tray with new art by longtime Townshend collaborator Richard Evans, including updated gatefold CD wallets, and a 28-page booklet with sleeve notes by Who and Townshend archivist Matt Kent, a new exclusive foreword by Townshend, plus rare photos and memorabilia.

The live shows included in the box set are Townshend's Deep End live at Brixton Academy in London recorded in November 1985 and featuring David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on guitar, a live full rendition of Pete's album Psychoderelict and more recorded at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York in August 1993 during Pete's only full solo tour, an intimate show from The Fillmore in San Francisco on 1996 April 30 around the time of his first solo compilation album

Speaking of performing solo or performing with a band that wasn't The Who, Townshend said, "I always have too much to do, too much responsibility, and not enough time. I have to live enough life to provide me with inspiration and context for my songs, I have to then spend enough time in my home studio finessing songs so they feel worthy of my band (The Who), then I have to re-record them with that band, then speak eloquently about them to the media, justifying my creative divergences, then I must tour endlessly behind the new music, continuing to celebrate the old stuff as well, and then start all over again."

Matt Kent said, "When Pete Townshend plays a solo show it isn't just a concert, it is an EVENT. These CDs represent just how good these events are."

In addition to Springsteen and Armstrong, the upcoming tribute album Silver Patron Saints: The Songs of Jesse Malin will also feature Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and The Hold Steady.

I really hope people in all parts of the world can relate to these songs, just the spectrum of emotions, overcoming by celebrating life through music and art."

The album's first single, Bleachers' "Prisoners of Paradise," is out now.

"As always in my songs, the themes are all there - transcendence, positivity and global unity through music," says Malin. "This is what I love to do, and I'm going to do everything I can to keep doing it."

Other artists on the album include Counting Crows, Dinosaur Jr., The Wallflowers, Spoon, Susanna Hoffs, Frank Turner, Rancid, Tommy Stinson, and Alison Mosshart.
