December 5, 2013

Nine Inch Nails have debuted a 90 minute HD concert film on VEVO from the band's Tension 2013 tour, filmed in Los Angeles last month. NIN also announced that a Blu-ray/DVD version of the live film will be out in the Spring of 2014, with additional content, 5.1 surround sound and more. Details will be announced soon. Watch the live concert film here. Additionally, NIN has released a new, uncensored version of the video for the 2009 single "Survivalism." Last but not least, Trent Reznor is taking part in a Reddit AMA this afternoon.

Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey has premiered her Tropico short film, which can be viewed here on VEVO. The movie debuted at the ArcLight theater in Hollywood on Wednesday night, where the singer also revealed that her next album is in the works and will be titled Ultraviolence, according to Idolator.

Yesterday was Jay Z's 44th birthday and the Rap superstar decided to celebrate his birthday by ranking his own musical catalog. On his Life + Times website, Jay ranked all 12 of his solo albums, with Reasonable Doubt at #1 and his comeback record Kingdom Come ranked last. He called Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, The Black Album and Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life all "classic."

Stone Sour has announced a new North American tour for early 2014, kicking off in Orlando on January 14 and winding up in San Antonio on February 15.

In an interview with the Miami News Times, Alabma Shakes drummer Steve Johnson says the band recently finished recording songs for their upcoming sophomore album. Johnson added, "I think a lot of people want to expect a Boys & Girls, Vol. II almost, more digging into Southern soul or something like that, and the songs that are coming out now, they’re different. I feel like we’ve progressed in growing as songwriters, and while they’re different in that respect, it’s still not unbelievable that it’s the same band. It still sounds like Alabama Shakes, just experimenting with other sounds."
