Kings Of Leon
Kings of Leon will release their documentary film on DVD, Blu Ray, and via iTunes on November 1. The DVD and Blu Ray editions of Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon will come with 45 minutes of bonus features including additional scenes not included in the film, two commentaries from the band and the filmmakers, and home-movie footage. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21 and was acquired by Showtime, premiering on the network on August 21. The documentary reveals the southern upbringing of the brothers (and cousin) and their journey from bible-belt poverty to rock stardom. Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon is produced by Casey McGrath for Phear Creative and executive produced by Nathan, Caleb, Jared and Matthew Followill.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band have announced new dates for the second leg of their 2011 North American Tour. The group will be hitting a wide range of venues including New York’s Madison Square Garden, Eastern Michigan University to kick off the trek on November 2, and Seger’s first stadium festival show in decades at Orlando Calling on November 13. Additional dates will be announced shortly including the west coast swing of Seger's tour. Meanwhile, on September 13, Capitol/EMI will reissue Seger's multi-platinum Live Bullet and Nine Tonight concert albums digitally remastered with exclusive bonus tracks. Both titles will be released with restored original artwork and updated packaging and offered in a special CD/t-shirt box combination at select retailers.

Drake explains that the single "Headlines" was the perfect track to set off his second album, Take Care, though maybe not a radio hit. "I think it's great; the purpose of that record was solely to deliver a message," he told MTV News last month on the BMI Urban Awards red carpet. "I could've gone with the record that was sort of super radio-friendly, but I really just wanted to talk to the people with the first record." Even if the Pop-feel has diminished, Drake feels confident about the newest release. "I've got a lot of records that I think will live on radio for a while," he added. "I'm excited about everything that's happened thus far." As for the story being told through Take Care: "It'll let you know exactly what's goin' on in my life because unlike a lot of other artists, I don't take to social media outlets to tell you what's goin' on in my life," he replied. "I don't sit there and complain about stuff all day long, I don't lash out, I just sort of save it for the album, so I think if you want to know what's going on with me at all, you'll just listen to Take Care and it'll answer all of your questions."

Enrique Iglesias is finishing up production on three to four new tracks that will be featured on the repackaged edition of his hit album, Euphoria, which is due in November. The album, released by Universal Music Latino and Universal Republic, will include hits from the original bilingual edition as well as the new material. One of the tracks, entitled "I Like How It Feels," includes an appearance from Pitbull and will be released to radio in two weeks. Iglesias also has recorded a new track for the set with Jennifer Lopez that is entitled "Mouth2Mouth," according to a tweet from producer DJ Frank E.

Lady Gaga reportedly will be performing at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012. Fans will be in heavy attendance as the ball drops in Times Square and rings in the new year. The show will also broadcast performances from the West Coast, and Fergie will resume her duties as the host, according to People.

T.I. is continuing to battle his case of questionable transportation to an Atlanta halfway house. His lawyer claims that no one told him that it was unacceptable to travel with anyone besides his wife. "Bureau of Prison officials did not specifically state at any time that T.I. was limited to being in the vehicle with his wife and no one else," T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, told MTV News. "There is nothing that was specifically instructed or directed on this." An incident report published by TMZ states that T.I. was on the bus with his wife, his manager, and two VH1 producers, conducting business which led to a violation of his furlough application. Sadow claims that the application neglected to specify that additional passengers were unacceptable. Additionally, "He had no reason to think there would be a problem traveling with these particular people, because his manager had been approved for visitation and had seen him several times at the facility in Arkansas and the producer had been approved for visitation and had seen him several times," his attorney said.

Anthrax will be the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio program Rockline with host Bob Coburn on Monday, September 12 at 8:30 p.m. PT/11:30 p.m. ET. The group will be talking about and performing songs from their new release, Worship Music, which hits stores the next day. Furthermore, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. has announced that he will name Wednesday, September 14, "Anthrax Day," the same day that the Big Four plays at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx. The concert represents a homecoming as all five members of Anthrax are from New York, with Charlie Benante, Frank Bello and Rob Caggiano being born and raised in The Bronx. Said Borough President Diaz, "These heavy metal legends grew up right here in our borough, and I am proud to welcome Anthrax back to their Bronx home."


She & Him’s Christmas album, entitled A Very She & Him Christmas, has been set to release closer to a holiday more grim. The duo’s album will drop on October 25 via Merge. Additionally, She & Him singer Zooey Deschanel’s new TV show, The New Girl, premieres on September 20 on Fox.
