Weezer Premieres Video for Single “Back to the Shack”

Monday, September 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Image Courtesy of Emily Shur“Back to the Shack,” the first single from Weezer‘s upcoming album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, promises the band will be “rockin’ out like it’s ’94,” but its video, which premiered Monday on Noisey, goes back all the way back to ’69.

Complete with Neil Armstrong‘s famous “One small step…” line, the Apollo 11-inspired video finds Rivers Cuomo and company jamming out on the moon. The band enlisted visual artist Warren Fu, who has worked with Julian Casablancas, The Killers and Daft Punk, to direct their space-rock adventures.

In the video, Cuomo rocks his signature lightning-bolt guitar strap — an accessory that he mentions multiple times in the song. Between the strap and the repeated mentions of the year the band’s breakthrough record, The Blue Album, came out, “Back to the Shack” is one of more self-referential songs that Weezer has released in a while. Cuomo even mentions that he “made up with [his] dad,” which is a relationship he has referenced often in his songs, perhaps most famously in “Say It Ain’t So.”

Everything Will Be Alright in the End will be released officially on October 7 via Republic Records. The album is being produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek.

Lorde Unleashes “Hunger Games” Single, “Yellow Flicker Beat”

Monday, September 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Music News

Lava/RepublicAs promised, Lorde has unveiled her new single, “Yellow Flicker Beat,” from the soundtrack of The Hunger Games — Mockingjay Part 1.

The song starts quietly, but builds to a strong chorus with heavy percussion.  In a Tumblr posting, Lorde says, “It’s my first offering from what i hope will be a soundtrack you love. it’s my attempt at getting inside her head: katniss’. i hope you like it.”  

In a recorded intro to the song, Lorde further explains that the song was inspired by “the character of Katniss” — that’d be Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of The Hunger Games, played by Jennifer Lawrence.  She adds, “It was about kinda trying to get inside her head right at the end of Mockingjay — Part 1.  She’s obviously kind of in emotional turmoil, everything’s crazy, and she wants to take names, she wants to reckon with people.  And it was kind of about channeling that.”

In the same posting, Lorde also acknowledges the one-year anniversary of the release of her debut album, Pure Heroine, saying, “The past year of my life has seen everything around me multiply in size and number — the stamps on my passport, the number of people i have to ask before i ride on the ferris wheel after my set at a festival, the decibels that follow me when i walk around in public. the other thing that’s grown is me — my fitness, my mental stamina, my ability to think clearly and make decisions — but most of all, my capacity for love.”

Lorde continues, “the thousands upon thousands (wait, millions(?!!)) of you who bought pure heroine truly feel like friends to me…i never knew i could feel such a warm heart for this many people at once. thankyou for hearing about me all those months ago, and sticking around.”

Hear Trent Reznor’s “Gone Girl” Soundtrack Music

Saturday, September 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Music Videos

Image Courtesy The Fun StarThese days, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is almost as well known for his work scoring film soundtracks as he is for rocking out with NIN.

Fans can sample music from his latest soundtrack  — for the upcoming movie Gone Girl — via a SoundCloud page streaming four of the score’s tracks.

The music, co-written with Reznor’s frequent collaborator Atticus Ross — ranges from industrial soundscapes to moody electronic tunes to soft piano music.  Earlier this month, Reznor told The Wall Street Journal that Gone Girl director David Fincher asked for a soundtrack that sounded like “spa music that has curdles and unravels.”

Reznor and Ross won an Oscar for their score of another Fincher film, The Social Network. Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel, stars Ben Affleck.  It hits theaters October 3.

“Scandal’s” New Promo Answers Cliffhanger: Where Is Olivia Pope?

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) — Scandal fans no longer have to wonder where on Earth is Olivia Pope. A new promo for the upcoming fourth season finds Washington, D.C.’s favorite fixer on an exotic beach somewhere, hair in curls — a departure from her signature sleek bob — with a large glass of wine.

It seems that when Olivia, played by the Emmy Award-nominated Kerry Washington, boarded a plane with Jake to “stand in the sun” at the end of season 3, she really meant it.

But just how long will she be gone?

Gladiators can find out when Scandal returns at 9 p.m. ET/PT Sept. 25 on ABC.

Rocket With Hangar 19 (Sunday 9pm)

Rocket at Hangar 19 every Sunday Night at 9pm! 

Hangar 19 relives the glory days of classic metal and features music from the artists who built this explosive genre, including Megadeth, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Pantera, Metallica, Anthrax, Korn, Slayer and Marilyn Manson.

CutterHeadShot-212x300Cutter brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to hosting Hangar 19. The guy lives and breathes heavy metal. After spending his teenage years not going to school and playing guitar in punk and metal bands, Cutter got an almost real job working for a classic rock radio station. After a few years of overnights and filling in for other people, plus complaining there wasn’t any Iron Maiden in the station’s library, he moved onto Assistant Program Director and eventually to Morning Show Host for an active rock station.

During this time, he also created his first metal radio show. His show became so popular that it spawned its own concert series and broke bands like Slipknot, Killswitch Engage, Bullet for My Valentine and countless others into the radio station’s playlist. The new metal stuff was cool, but Cutter realized its old school roots are where it’s at.

Watching his own son wear skinny jeans and seeing new metal become flavored with pop and bad rap, Cutter wanted to show the world where metal began, where it was brought to and why it is where it is now.
