Kings Of Leon
Kings Of Leon have canceled the next few weeks of live dates so that drummer Nathan Followill can recover from broken ribs that were sustained in a tour bus accident. However, the band's appearance on The Tonight Show this evening (8/12) is still on, because Roots drummer Questlove will sit in with the band. At this point, Kings Of Leon is tentatively set to make a return to the road on August 28 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. "I'm counting down the days until I can get back in the saddle and continue what has been our best American tour so far," Nathan said in a statement.

A collection of remixes from Daft Punk's 2005 album Human After All has finally been released in North America via iTunes. Previously, the 2006 remix album had only been available in Japan. The new version contains the same 14 songs from the original, plus one additional remix of "Technologic" by Le Knight Club, which was added for this release.

The upcoming movie Mall will mark the feature film directorial debut from Linkin Park's Joe Hahn. The film will receive a North American theatrical release on October 17. Co-starring Vincent D'Onofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/producer/screenwriter), Gina Gershon, and Cameron Monaghan, Mall examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting. "I find it refreshing to see this kind of point-of-view in contrast to today's society that interacts digitally," Hahn recently explained to Mashable. "When I read this script, it felt real and refreshing to show how ugly people can be as they hide their inner beasts after cracking their facades."

The Goo Goo Dolls have partnered up with Live Nation and Yahoo to live-stream their August 17 concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Philadelphia. This is one of 365 concerts to stream over a 12-month period on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen. Fans can watch the Goo Goo Dolls show at 9 p.m. EST on August 17.

Guitarist Bob Weir is canceling all of his tour dates through January. A note posted on the RatDog Facebook page reads: "All Bob Weir & RatDog dates, including August/September tour and Jamaica 2015, have been canceled. No additional information is currently available." Weir also is canceling a September performance at the Lockn' Festival with his other band, Furthur.
