On March 25, My Chemical Romance will be releasing a greatest hits album entitled May Death Never Stop You. The defunct band wrote on its website: "The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us." The album also includes some previously unreleased material, such as the "Attic Demos," and one of the last songs they worked on together in the studio.

Common will release his 10th studio album, Nobody Smiling, some time in 2014. The rapper says the album is inspired by the state of the inner cities in the U.S., including his hometown of Chicago. Soon after announcing the album, Common debuted its first single, "War." "Its time to help these kids!" he wrote on Twitter regarding the song.

Guns N' Roses has booked a string of Central and South American dates in March and April to kick off its 2014 tour. The group, which announced the news on its website, wrote that: "Guns N’ Roses are setting up tour plans in 2014 beginning with a return to South America for multiple dates in the spring. The start of the trip south begins with headlining the second night of the Hell & Heaven Metal Festival in Mexico City. More information coming soon!" The band also will play shows in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.

William Hurt has been tapped to play current-day Gregg Allman in the biopic Midnight Rider, which is scheduled to begin shooting in February. Tyson Ritter, lead singer of the All American Rejects, is playing the young Gregg Allman. The film is based on Allman's biography, My Cross To Bear, and it will focus mainly on his early struggles through the formation of the Allman Brothers Band and his battle with drug and alcohol abuse.
