June 10, 2014

Godsmack is gearing up for their sixth full-length album, 1000hp, which will be released on August 5. The title track, which is the first single, is available now to purchase digitally. Once again Godsmack teamed up with producer Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Evanescence) for the album, recording it back home in Boston. Singer Sully Erna comments, "We made a conscious decision to go back to the streets of Boston for this album. The single actually recounts our days in the empty bars working our way up to those big stages we're so blessed to be on. It doesn't just capture the spirit of the city. It's Godsmack." Drummer Shannon Larkin adds, "It's a kickass rock tune from, what I feel, is our most kickass record! There's a punk edge and a different energy. I can't wait for everybody to hear it."

Nicki Minaj has dropped the official video for "Pills N Potions," and it features a cameo appearance from The Game. "Pills N Potions" was produced by Dr. Luke and it is the first track from her upcoming studio album, The Pink Print, which is due later this year.

Paul McCartney has put off the start of his U.S. tour in order to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea. The Out There world tour will now resume July 5 in Albany, NY, and the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville have been rescheduled for October. "I'm sorry but it's going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again," Sir Paul said in a statement. "I'm feeling great but taking my docs' advice to take it easy for just a few more days. Look forward to seeing you all soon."

Jack White has announced a new set of tour dates behind his album Lazaretto, which was released today. The eight new shows are in Kansas City (8/18); Red Rocks, CO (8/20); San Francisco (8/23); Seattle (8/25-26); Vancouver (8/28); Columbia, MD (9/14) and Boston (9/17). White will also appear on Conan tomorrow night (6/11) with his old friend Conan O'Brien.

The new Theory Of A Deadman album, Savages, doesn't come out until July 29, but fans can begin pre-ordering it today. All pre-orders will receive a pair of instant free downloads including the song "Angel" and the album's first single, "Drown." The video for "Drown" – directed by filmmaker Rich Ragsdale – will have its world premiere this Thursday, June 12, exclusively via www.Loudwire.com. The TOAD tour starts on June 21 in Sioux City, IA.

Singer Rome, known for his work with Sublime, has announced details of his debut solo album. Get Free arrives everywhere on August 12 and it's heralded by the first single, "If The World," which is available now digitally. Rome played nearly every instrument on the album with the exception of drums, which came courtesy of Bouncing Souls' Michael McDermott and Sublime with Rome bandmate Josh Freese. The album also features an appearance by Butthole Surfers guitar hero Paul Leary on the title track.

Synth-pop trio CHVRCHES continue to remain on the road in support of last year's debut album The Bones Of What You Believe. The newest dates begin in Los Angeles on September 19 and run up to October 12 in Mexico City.

Chevelle has extended their summer tour with a string of east coast dates. The eastern run is the third leg of the band's current 2014 tour in support of their latest album, La Gargola. The new dates run from August 9 in Rochester, NY until September 5 in Clifton Park, NY, and then the band heads back out west, winding up in Sacramento on September 13.
