Mudvayne
Mudvayne has decided to bump up the release date of their new, self-titled album from December 22 to December 21 in order to give fans an extra shopping day to grab it before Christmas. The band also will hold an album listening party tonight (12/1) at 9 p.m. at the New York studio of tattoo artist Paul Booth, who designed Mudvayne's new album cover art. Fans who can't be there in person will be able to go online to LiveStream.com and view the entire party. Livestream also will have stations set up at the party allowing guests to interact with fans online, who will be able to chat via Facebook and Twitter. Last but not least, be sure to keep an eye out for FMQB's upcoming radio special, Inside Mudvayne, that will air on radio stations nationwide from December 18 to January 3. The special finds singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett chatting with host L.A. Lloyd about their latest work.

Alt-rockers Live have broken up, after two decades together. Guitarist Chad Taylor announced to the band's e-mail list that he and bandmates Chad Gracey and Patrick Dahlheimer's relationship with singer Ed Kowalczyk "had grown cold." Taylor wrote that while the band had been on a hiatus, he learned that Kowalczyk had secretly legally maneuvered control of the band's company from a majority vote to just the singer's control in 2005. Taylor hints at starting a new group with Gracey and Dahlheimer, writing that "Chad, Patrick and I have no plans to replace Ed at this point in time, however, he will no longer be a member of our band. We are excited by the opportunities ahead of us and will look to enjoin forces with vocalists and instrumentalists that will hold high the ideals set forth by the band and its fans. Yes, there may be future Live recording and tours but we are all very realistic that it will never be the same without Ed. That doesn’t mean that it can’t be great."

Chris Brown will sit down for an in-depth interview on ABC's 20/20 next Friday, December 11. Brown will reportedly discuss his assault of Rihanna earlier this year. Brown was interviewed by Robin Roberts last weekend. The singer's new album, Graffiti, is due out next Tuesday, December 8.

Paramore and Weezer have been announced as the headliners for the 2010 Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey. Paramore will play May 1 and Weezer will play May 2. Many more bands will be announced, along with details on the Bamboozle California Festival, slated for March 27 and 28 in Anaheim.

Bon Jovi and Dave Matthews Band are among the acts slated for an eclectic new U.S. music festival next year. The Hullabalou festival will be held July 23-25 at Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, in Louisville, KY. Also slated to perform are Al Green, The B-52s, Loretta Lynn, Kenny Chesney, The Black Crowes, Colbie Caillat and many more.

Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers will take his side project out on the road in January, when Nick Jonas and the Administration play a month's worth of gigs. The tour begins January 2 in Dallas and winds up on January 30 in Berkeley, CA. Their debut album, Who I Am, will be out February 2.

U2 has added two more European shows to its 2010 tour dates. The U2 360 Tour will visit Italy next year, playing Turin on August 6 and Rome on October 8.

Limp Bizkit's comeback album has a name, as Fred Durst revealed via Twitter that the band's upcoming release will be called Gold Cobra. The Bizkit's first record since 2005 is expected out in the first half of next year.

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian will release a live orchestral version of his solo album, Elect The Dead. Titled Elect The Dead Symphony, the CD/DVD set is due out March 9, 2010. Blabbermouth reports the project was recorded in New Zealand in March with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Flaming Lips will cover Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety during the band's New Year's Eve concert. The Lips will play the album starting at the stroke of midnight in their hometown of Oklahoma City. The band recently revealed they had recorded the entire album and hoped to release it digitally.

Athens, GA rockers The Whigs will release their third album, In The Dark, on March 2 via ATO Records. The band is currently giving away a pair of free tracks on their website and just kicked off a two-week North American tour.
