Kings Of Leon
Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill was injured in a tour bus accident on Saturday night, forcing the band to postpone a show on Sunday. "The band was en route to their hotel after their show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill," reads a message posted on Facebook. "Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well." At this time it's unclear how the drummer's injuries will affect the band's touring schedule, which involves some 30 shows over the next two months.

The Teen Choice Awards were handed out on Sunday night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, as heartthrobs like Ed Sheeran and One Direction took home multiple trophies. Sheeran won for Choice Male Artist and Choice Single for "Sing," while the boys of 1D earned Choice Music Group, Best Group Single for "Story of My Life" and Best Break-up Song as well. Ariana Grande was voted Choice Female Artist and Female Single for "Problem," and Demi Lovato was named the Choice Summer Music Star: Female. Calvin Harris, Iggy Azalea and Imagine Dragons also won awards, which were determined by online voting.

Taylor Swift will appear in a worldwide live stream with Yahoo! on August 18 at 5 p.m. ET. Coming in live from New York, the singer/songwriter will presumably announce and/or debut a new single off her forthcoming fifth album, and perhaps reveal a release date as well. Swift is set to appear on The Tonight Show this Wednesday (8/13), and she'll perform at the MTV VMAs on August 24.

Capital Cities will embark on a fall headline run from October 1 in Denver through November 19 in Oakland. Special guests Night Terrors of 1927 will open on all dates, with Sneaky Sound System and Cherub supporting on select dates.

Five Finger Death Punch have enjoyed a lot of support from military fans over the years, so the band is giving back to veterans and those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with the video to "Wrong Side Of Heaven," which premiered today on VEVO. The video, written by the band and directed by Nick Peterson, is intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from PTSD and its larger repercussions for our country by way of affecting their mental and physical health, family life, assimilation back home after service and garnering quality job placement. Meanwhile, 5FDP is scheduled to kick off a fall co-headlining tour with Volbeat on September 16 in Salt Lake City.

In support of the album Sound of Change, Dirty Heads will hit the road again starting on October 10 in Ventura, CA for another North American swing with Rome opening. It is scheduled to run through November 16 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Dirty Heads will again be promoting the Hard Rock International and WhyHunger Imagine There's No Hunger campaign, by auctioning off tour packages that include meet-and-greets and other perks.

An upcoming futuristic, dystopian video game called Destiny will have an original score and theme song by Sir Paul McCartney. According to The New York Times, 70 minutes of the Destiny score have been circulating the Internet via a beta version of the game. The theme song will drop on September 9, the same day as the game hits stores. The song was recorded with a 120-piece orchestra at London's Abbey Road Studios with director Giles Martin.
