Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael recently joined some young aspiring musicians at the School Of Rock Green Valley in Henderson, Nevada. Kael ran through the band’s song “Lift Me Up” with the kids, with video of the performance posted online. Five Finger Death Punch will begin the next leg of its North American tour this Saturday in Springfield, Illinois, with singer Ivan Moody scheduled to join them after a stint in rehab.
Queens Of The Stone Age has released a video for its new single, “The Way You Used to Do,” in which frontman Josh Homme shows off some impressive dance moves. Homme said, “Dancing and headbanging are truly individualistic expressions of losing oneself fully in appreciation of music . . . I fully realize that may be a little more than some are open to, and that’s perfectly fine with me.” The song can be found on the Queens’ seventh full-length album, Villains, due out on August 25th.
Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz said in a new interview that the band is about six songs into an album that will probably end up containing a total of 10 tracks. The band pushed back the release of the new LP, titled Mania, from September 15th to January 19th, 2018. Wentz said, “When you’ve been doing this for 15 years with the same guys it’s hard to find something fresh,” adding that global music has been a big influence on the disc. Wentz revealed that he’s still hoping to land Rihanna — who he’s wanted to work with for more than a decade — for a guest spot.
