Damon Albarn and his merry band of animaniacs have just dropped some new music on us. As you might expect, the video is weird af. It also includes a ton of guest stars.

Gorillaz's new album "The Now Now" drops on 6/29!
The last album, "Humanz" leaned pretty heavily on guest vox, which was a bit of a drag for those of us who like Damon Albarn's vox to be front and center. According to the press release for this album...
"'The Now Now' is 11 all-new songs from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act*, produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, and recorded entirely at Studio 13, London in February this year.
In contrast to the cast of characters that joined the apocalyptic party thrown by Damon Albarn and his cartoon crew on last year’s multiple-GRAMMY-nominated 'HUMANZ'. 'The Now Now' sees the band largely eschewing guest stars, taking it back to the core Gorillaz crew: blue-haired, sweet-natured dreamer 2D on vocals; whip-smart Japanese badass Noodle on guitar; Brooklyn-born philosopher and the meat–behind-the-beat Russel Hobbs on drums. And with Murdoc Niccals temporarily indisposed, bass duties on the new album have been taken up by erstwhile Gangreen Gang member Ace (explaining the 'FREE MURDOC' signage that’s been popping up everywhere from Coachella to the Kentucky Derby to Change.org and Reddit)."
Recorded over the better part of 2017 Halestorm's 4th studio album 'Vicious' is set for release July 27th and dropped the video for it's lead single 'Uncomfortable'. Pre-orders are available

Like A Storm is getting heavier and we like it! The latest single from the brothers from down under (New Zealand actually) is the heaviest from the guys yet. Check out the video that was just released today:
I've always been a fan of live concerts. My first live
show was KISS, Rush, and Uriah Heep back in the 70's with my Dad. I was all of
10 years old. I was yelling, "
!" My Dad
had his fingers in his ears, shaking his head, saying, "
The sights, the SOUNDS, the "smells", getting that T-shirt to prove
you were there; those feelings of being up close and personal with a band you
love are some of the greatest ever. I remember in 1984 seeing Van Halen
floor the audience with a fantastic performance in front of almost 10,000
people. Moments like that are worth sharing.
So, I've put together, what I feel, are five of the greatest
live performances of all time.
Number 5: Van Halen At The US Festival - 1983
Van Halen had not played live in three months when Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, offered the boys $1.5 million dollars to play the US festival. It was one of the highest paid gigs for a band at that time. The concert was well, better than average, but David Lee Roth was so drunk and slurring his speech, he missed most of the lyrics. Typical 1980's DLR. Probably one of the biggest hangovers, ever. The festival was a success with music fans, but lost money when it was all said and done.

4. The Who At The Isle Of Wight - August 29, 1970
The Who actually didn't take the stage until almost 3:00 a.m. They then proceeded to perform the entire soundtrack from the rock opera, "Tommy," and all of their hits to an audience of over half a million people. If you ever had the chance to see The Who when Keith Moon was alive, his drumming was the best part of the show.

3. The Beatles At Shea Stadium - August 15, 1965
55,000 screaming Beatles fans rushed the field of Shea Stadium to see The Fab Four at one of their biggest concerts on their US tour in 1965. "
It was so loud that it was hard to hear any of the music
," said New York Mets security guard Vinnie Moriarty after the show. Imagine the post-concert popcorn cleanup for that one.

2. Led Zeppelin At Royal Albert Hall - January 9, 1970
In a live show that would make Classic Rock history, a young Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham put on one of Zeppelin's most definitive performances. The band had debuted at Royal Albert Hall only a year before. The show was released as an million-selling album and remastered in recent years.

1. Johnny Cash At San Quentin - February 24, 1969
Wait just a minute! All this rock and now you're going country ? Yep. After Johnny's Folsom Prison performance in 1968, he decided to play at San Quentin as well. Johnny seemed to relate well to the prison's inmates, who clapped, cheered, and sang along to every word. Cash received a lot of mail from inmates all over the country; all begging for him to come play at their prison. Ironically, Merle Haggard was in the audience at Cash's San Quentin Concert. If you reach out to all types of people, no matter who, what, or where they are, no wonder everybody loved the Man In Black.

that's the list. What do you think? What are your top 5? Depending
on your musical taste, you might shift the numbers around a little bit, but you
have to admit, a live performance beats the album, anytime.
Not getting anything in the ways of details on the new album but have to figure we're not too far off from it. I can't remember off hand how the time frames worked last time around with releasing songs as compared to the the album details but we're taking steps in the right direction baby...
