Justin Bieber unveiled the album art for his upcoming album Believe via Twitter on Friday. A color version of the art (seen to the right) is the cover for the regular version, while a sepia-toned version of the same artwork serves as the cover for the deluxe edition. Believe is due out June 19. Meanwhile, Beiber's bodyguard Kenny Hamilton tweeted a picture of the Biebs in the studio with Kanye West. Hamilton captioned the picture with "Putting the finishing touches on the album and it's gonna be special." Believe is expected to include an all-star roster of cameos and contributors.

The Offspring have set a June 26 release date for Days Go By, the veteran rockers' next studio album. The title track and lead single landed at radio on Friday morning.  

Kevin Richardson has rejoined the Backstreet Boys, after leaving the group in 2006. At a concert in London over the weekend, the members of the group announced they would be in London this summer to record a new album and that Richardson was officially rejoining them. Backstreet Boys then tweeted "Now everything is back to normal ... Welcome back @kevinrichardson."

Halestorm has announced a new round of tour dates in support of the Rockers' new album The Strange Case Of... Halestorm is currently on the road as part of the "Mass Chaos" tour with Staind and Godsmack, then open two dates for Avenged Sevenfold before kicking off their own headlining tour. Their North American dates currently run up to July 20 in Cadott, WI. Halestorm will play the UK and Europe throughout September and October.

Metric have released their new single, "Youth Without Youth," from the Canadian indie-rockers' new album Synthetica. You can hear the song, along with commentary on the track from band members Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, below. Synthetica arrives in stores on June and the band promises a "big Synthetica announcement tomorrow," according to their Twitter account.

Sublime with Rome have announced a summer tour, with Cypress Hill and Pepper opening up. The trek kicks off in Oklahoma City on June 1 and winds up in St. Augustine, FL on August 30.

My Morning Jacket has announced a summer tour, with Band Of Horses opening all dates. The trek begins with two nights at Red Rocks in Colorado on August 3-4 and runs up to August 26 in Raleigh, NC.
