Listen To New ROBERT PLANT Song ‘Bones Of Saints’

"Bones Of Saints", a brand new song from Robert Plant, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the LED ZEPPELIN frontman's eleventh solo album, "Carry Fire", which will be released on October 13 via Nonesuch/Warner. The follow-up to 2014's "Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar" was produced by Plant in the west of England and Wales, at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios. As with "Lullaby", Plant is accompanied by his backing band THE SENSATIONAL SHAPE SHIFTERS: John Baggott on keyboards, moog, loops, percussion, drums, brass arrangement, t'bal, snare drum, slide guitar, piano, electric piano, bendir; Justin Adams on guitar, acoustic guitar, oud, E-bow quartet, percussion, snare drum, tambourine; Dave Smith on bendir, tambourine, djembe, drum kit; and Liam "Skin" Tyson on dobro, guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, twelve-string. Plant and the SPACE SHIFTERS are also joined on "Carry Fire" by a number of special guests. Chrissie Hynde joins Plant on the duet "Bluebirds Over The Mountain" (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and THE BEACH BOYS). Albanian cellist Redi Hasa performs on three tracks, as does the celebrated Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle. Plant, who lived in Texas for a time before returning to his native England three years ago, together with his friends, present the songs on "Carry Fire", melding unusual rhythms with naturalism and smoldering power. He says: "It's about intention. I respect and relish my past works, but each time I feel the incentive to create new work, I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat — the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation." "Carry Fire" track listing: 01. The May Queen 02. New World… 03. Season's Song 04. Dance With You Tonight 05. Carving Up The World Again 06. A Way With Words 07. Carry Fire 08. Bones Of Saints 09.

POISON Releases ‘Nothin’ But A Good Time’ Fan Video

POISON has released a "Nothin' But A Good Time" "fan video," featuring photos that were submitted by fans who attended the band's recently completed first U.S. tour in more than four years, dubbed "XXX". Says POISON: "We love our loyal fans and wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU for coming to support us on tour this year! We had the best time and loved seeing you all again. "In celebration of the tour, we asked fans to send in their #NothinButAGoodTime photos, and vote on their favorites to make it into our video. The top 100 fan-voted photos were included here — plus three bonus photos! It was truly #NothinButAGoodTime" In an interview with the "Drummer Nation" show, POISON drummer Rikki Rockett spoke about what it has been like reuniting with his bandmates for the trek. "It's been a lot of fun so far," he said. "It's kind of crazy. I mean, I was out there with [my side project] DEVIL CITY ANGELS, doing stuff, but not POISON. We had a few corporate gigs here and there, but not a full-blown tour." He continued: "It felt great [getting back up on stage with the guys]. I mean, after the first two days, I felt at home. The first day, I was, like, 'Woah! Can I do this?' And now, I get up on stage and it's like home, you know what I mean? It really is. A lot of people say, 'Oh, another day at the office at the drum kit.' It's, like, no — another day at home." POISON's reunited original lineup — Rockett, Bret Michaels, Bobby Dall and C.C. DeVille — kicked off its North American tour with DEF LEPPARD on April 8 at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire. The trek wrapped on June 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana. POISON and DEF LEPPARD first hit the road together back in 2009, and then again three years later. POISON appeared at the 2013 Indy 500 Miller Lite Carb Day, but had otherwise been mostly playing private shows, including one in January 2015. The band hadn't done any major touring since taking part in the 2012 "Rock Of Ages" trek with DEF LEPPARD and LITA FORD. Rockett was recently declared cancer free after undergoing an experimental treatment. He was diagnosed with oral cancer back in 2015.

TRIVIUM: ‘The Sin And The Sentence’ Is ‘The Perfect Culmination Of What We’ve Been Doing Throughout The Years’

TRIVIUM members Matt Heafy (lead vocals, lead guitar), and Paolo Gregoletto (bass) recently took part in a question-and-answer session at the Bandit Rock studios in Stockholm, Sweden. You can now watch the discussion below. Asked about the production process for TRIVIUM's new album, "The Sin And The Sentence", which will be released on October 20 via Roadrunner, Paolo said: "It has been about a year and a half, almost two years since we started really working on it, so we were kind of working on it on the down load while we were touring. We really came together and made it November of last year when we got Alex [Bent, drums] into the band. We kind of threw him into the deep end, because we were, like, 'You've gotta learn an entire headlining set — and we're gonna start writing new music.' So we kind of rolled the dice with that one, but Alex ended up really stepping up — he really crushed it. "I guess we just really wanted to make the 'most TRIVIUM' TRIVIUM album we could make — the culmination of everything we've been writing," he continued. "And it really just kind of came down to us being in our rehearsal room and just working together and not letting anyone outside of Matt, Corey [Beaulieu, guitar/vocals] and myself into the process. And then, of course, Alex. But no one else — we didn't send any demos to anyone. We were kind of telling the label, 'Oh, yeah, we're ready to record.' And I remember our A&R dude was, likem 'I've gotta hear something.' So we flew him down [to Florida]. But we didn't send demos out to anyone, and I think by retaining all the music for ourselves, it was the perfect culmination of what we've been doing throughout the years." Added Heafy: "It seems like everyone was really shocked when all of a sudden a new video came out. "What was really great, and what TRIVIUM always does is we're always reactionary — we look at what we've done [and] we look at what all bands are doing," he said. "We've been noticing definitely — and we did this on 'Vengeance Falls' [2013], so we're guilty as well — bands just posting on their own social-media accounts, 'You'll never believe what's coming from the studio recording. Here's a picture of a beer bottle in my shoe in the studio, and this is cool.' And we didn't wanna do that, because everyone else was doing that. So what we did instead was we decided that we'd completely finish the record, finish the videos — there's documentary stuff coming, there's all sorts of things coming still — record everything, control it, make our own schedule where everything could be released. 'Cause if you think about a movie, you don't see behind-the-scenes pictures from the director first — you see a trailer first, and then things start to come from there. So that's what our idea was with 'The Sin And The Sentence' — release the trailer first, which was the first song, and everything from there." Regarding what the biggest difference is between the way TRIVIUM approaches songwriting today compared to how it was for an album like 2005's "Ascendancy", Paolo said: "I think we've learned how to bridge our melodic side and our heavy side a lot better. Obviously, we're probably the only people that have heard the entire [new] record, but to explain it to people, the heaviest moments of the record don't feel like we're a different band from a song like 'The Heart From Your Hate' — it feels like a complete thought. Matt being able to sing and scream opens up so many opportunities, so we have to really find a way to balance that — not go too far one way or the other; it's always about balancing those two worlds. Some of the heaviest stuff, like [the song] 'Other Worlds', you're, like, 'Wow, this is a really heavy song,' but you notice there's really no screaming, only little background parts; we didn't have to do screaming to make the song really intense. So I feel like we've come a long way as writers and we really understand what we can do and what TRIVIUM is about, and it makes writing songs a lot easier. In the past, we'd have a song like 'Dying In Your Arms' and then you'd have a song like 'Ascendancy', and now we're able to balance everything out all at once." "The Sin And The Sentence" is available for pre-order at all DSPs, with all pre-orders receiving instant grat downloads of the album's title track and "The Heart From Your Hate". Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA) at Santa Ana, California's Hybrid Studios, "The Sin And The Sentence" contains TRIVIUM's first recordings with Bent who joined the band last year. TRIVIUM will make its return to North America this fall on a co-headline tour with ARCH ENEMY featuring support from WHILE SHE SLEEPS and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. The tour will kick off on October 27 in Orlando, Florida and make its way across the U.S. and Canada before finishing on December 6 in Houston, Texas. "The Sin And The Sentence" track listing: 01. The Sin And The Sentence 02. Beyond Oblivion 03. Other Worlds 04. The Heart From Your Hate 05. Betrayer 06. The Wretchedness Inside 07. Endless Night 08. Sever The Hand 09. Beauty In The Sorrow 10.

JOE PERRY Recalls Recording AEROSMITH’s ‘Permanent Vacation’

According to The Pulse Of Radio, AEROSMITH spoke to Ultimate Classic Rock about the thirtieth anniversary of the band's return-to-form classic "Permanent Vacation". The album, which was released on August 18, 1987, marked the band's comeback following years of floundering after its initial '70s blockbusters and descent into the throes of drug addiction. Newly clean and sober, the group became one of the '80s' and '90s' biggest acts on the back of "Permanent Vacation", which featured three major hits — "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)", which hit No. 4; "Angel" — the album's biggest hit, which peaked at No. 3; and "Rag Doll", which topped out at No. 14. To date, "Permanent Vacation" has sold five million copies in the U.S. alone. Perry spoke about the album, which peaked at No. 11, and gave new life to the Boston bad boys, telling Ultimate Classic Rock: "It was really the start of a new paradigm as far as writing and making records. We went into the studio and just tried to grind it out, and it didn't work that way anymore. Obviously, we needed some new influence, and it wasn't going to work the old way. That's when we started writing with other people." He went on to credit the album's co-writers, including Jim Vallance, Holly Knight, and BON JOVI collaborator Desmond Child, for helping the band reach a broader audience. "I think that was a big influence because you learn so much when you're writing with other people," he said. "You learn more about the craft, so to speak. So that kind of bleeds over to, say, when Steven [Tyler, AEROSMITH vocalist] and I were working again. Just the two of us bringing a lot of those ideas, when you learn from other people. There are a million different ways to write songs, what the drive is. That kind of thing. That opened, creatively, a lot of doors." Perry also feels that teaming up with BON JOVI producer Bruce Fairbairn and moving the "Permanent Vacation" sessions to Vancouver made a huge difference to the sound of the album, recalling: "I think BON JOVI had just been up there and made the 'Slippery When Wet' record, which was huge. So there was that whole new kind of vibe, all that energy so it was a brand new setting and a brand new town. I don't think we'd ever even played there before." AEROSMITH kicks off an eight-date tour of South America and Mexico on September 15 in Quito, Ecuador.

This new deal includes both the North American and Japanese rights, marking the first time a substantial amount of the WHITESNAKE catalog will reside under Warner Music Group worldwide. "It gives me great joy to finally have so much of my WHITESNAKE catalog all under the same roof with the Warner family and I'm thrilled to be now working with this tremendous team on a worldwide basis," says Coverdale. "I have great memories of being with Warner back in my days with DEEP PURPLE. Then when I was with Geffen, they were distributed by Warner, so it feels like coming home to now have WHITESNAKE there. This elaborate reissue is the perfect project to kick off the new relationship." "WHITESNAKE is one of the all-time great rock n' roll bands, with David being an absolute icon as a vocalist and front man," says Rhino president Mark Pinkus. "We are absolutely thrilled to now have so much of the WHITESNAKE catalog with Warner on a global basis and are excited for the fans to see what great releases we have planned for the coming years." Soon after its release in April 1987, "Whitesnake" became a huge success around the world, selling multi million copies. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard album chart and spawned four popular singles: "Still Of The Night", "Give Me All Your Love", "Is This Love" (which reached #2) and the #1 hit "Here I Go Again". "Whitesnake: Super Deluxe Edition" comes with an entire disc of unreleased live performances featuring Adrian Vandenberg, Vivian Campbell and Tommy Aldridge, recorded during the band's 1987-88 tour. The music includes live versions of several tracks from "1987", plus WHITESNAKE classics "Slide It In", "Love Ain't No Stranger" and "Slow An' Easy". An additional disc spotlights the creative process behind "Whitesnake" with a selection of elevent unreleased demo and rehearsal recordings, including early versions of nearly every song on the album called "87 Evolutions". The final disc introduces newly remixed versions the album's four singles, and includes rare radio mixes, as well as songs from "87 Versions", an EP released exclusively in Japan. The DVD from "Whitesnake: Super Deluxe Edition" includes music videos for the four singles, all of which have been carefully restored and remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound for the first time ever. In addition, the DVD also features a new thirty-minute documentary about the making of "Whitesnake", a new promo video made especially for this set of the 1988 version of "Here I Go Again" and unreleased live footage from the 1987-88 tour. According to Billboard, a WHITESNAKE home video will follow on Record Store Black Friday (November 24) as well as a coffee table book chronicling "The Purple Album" cycle from 2015. An all-new WHITESNAKE studio album is planned for 2018, along with a world tour. "It was a lot of fun to do," Coverdale told Billboard of the "Whitesnake" reissue, "because I don't go back a lot. I kind of learn from the past to apply those lessons to the future and the present. But my gratitude for (the album) is beyond words. I've only ever gone into a studio to try to improve on the last record...There was no, 'Right, I'm gonna sell thirty-odd million fucking records!' It was amazing, just amazing, so it's great to revisit all of this." Coverdale also revealed that he has been getting together with WHITESNAKE guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra for regular writing sessions for a new album that will lively arrive late spring of 2018. "I'm actually very excited about it because it's the first opportunity both Reb and Joel and I have actually had to sit down and write together," Coverdale said of what will be WHITESNAKE's first set of original material since 2011's "Forevermore". "There's a lot of what one would refer to as arena rock; Reb and I were talking the other night over dinner and he said, 'Man, there's so many songs here that no matter where we play — Portugal or Brazil or Tokyo — they're gonna get this hook. They're gonna be punching the fuckin' air and have a great night.' And I went, 'Oh, absolutely — and more than usual,' which is great. I can't do throwaway shit. The only reason I'm doing this record are the songs are gonna be a great WHITESNAKE album for WHITESNAKE fans — and the band. It's very exciting."

Video Premiere: DANZIG’s ‘Last Ride’

"Last Ride", the new video from DANZIG, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's latest album, "Black Laden Crown", which came out in May via Evilive Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The "Last Ride" clip, which features an appearance by Diane Foster, was directed by Glenn Danzig, produced by Glenn Danzig and Christopher M. Jimenez and edited by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films. "Black Laden Crown" track listing: 01. Black Laden Crown 02. Eyes Ripping Fire 03. Devil On Hwy 9 04. Last Ride 05. The Witching Hour 06. But A Nightmare 07. Skulls & Daisies 09. Blackness Falls 09. Pull The Sun In a 2015 interview with Noisey, Glenn Danzig was asked what it is that keeps him coming back to the creative well. He responded: "It's so many different things. There's always stuff to write about, but I think that the whole punk thing helped a lot. If it gets boring, change it, fix it, make it exciting, make it relevant again, and that's what I did without sacrificing the music. That's what I try to do. I try to do stuff where first thing is I'm excited about the record, and then I hope that the people who listen to my music are gonna dig it too. That's pretty much how I go into doing a record, and I don't do a new record until I have stuff to write about it. I don't force myself to do a record. Someone doesn't come to me and say, 'Hey, it's been a year or two since your last record. You've gotta write a record and put one out in a couple of months.' No one comes to me and says that to me." Asked if that attitude of not forcing the creative process is something that's always been there for him, Danzig said: "Yeah. I mean, I used to do it on a more frequent basis. [Laughs] But I think even back in the MISFITS and SAMHAIN days, I put out a record every two years, I think. The same thing with DANZIG, too, where I put out a record every two years. Later on it became further and further apart, but that's just the way it worked out. I think in between 'Danzig IV' and 'V' was probably a two-year period, and then between 'V' and 'VI' was probably a three-year period. It seems to be now it's gone to four or five. I think one of the things also was for 'Deth Red' we toured a lot over those years. Not two or three months at a time, but we just kept getting offers to go to Europe and then back to America. The record did pretty well for me, especially the way it was received."

NIKKI SIXX Describes Hitting Rock Bottom (Audio)

On August 31, as part of International Overdose Awareness Day, MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX:A.M. bassist and Premiere Networks host Nikki Sixx dedicated four hours of "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx" — America's top syndicated rock radio show — to raise awareness of the U.S. opioid crisis. Sixx, who detailed his near-fatal drug addiction in the best-selling book "The Heroin Diaries", welcomed several guests for an in-depth discussion about what can be done to alleviate the massive suffering and loss happening across the country due to heroin and opioid addiction and overdoses. A three-minute clip from yesterday's show, in which Sixx describes hitting rock bottom, is available below. "Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx" is nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks on more than a hundred and thirty affiliates nationwide. The show is also available on SixxSense.com and the show's iHeartRadio channel. The 58-year-old Sixx struggled with substance abuse for years and was even supposedly declared clinically dead after a heroin overdose in 1987 made his heart stop for two minutes. He has since become actively involved in a recovery "program," which he credits for helping him transform his life and relationships. "By letting go of self and ego, working a program that connects you to a higher power and giving back to those still struggling are just some of the important things you learn through sobriety," Sixx wrote when he celebrated nine years of sobriety in July 2013. "You get to repair the damage done from drink, drugs and horrific behaviors (that broke people's hearts who loved you." He added: "For me, taking away the substance just gave [me] an honest view of who I had become and then the healing started. I do believe without any program to help, many are just dry drunks and there is always a danger of them going out again. I've been there. It's not pretty. This is no joking matter to me, so I take it seriously."

Due on October 27, "A Decade Of Delain: Live At Paradiso" was filmed at a sold-out gig at Amsterdam's legendary Paradiso on December 10, 2016. DELAIN was joined on stage throughout the evening by Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Liv Kristine, Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY), and many other special guests and collaborators.

On top of the full live concert, the package includes an exclusive documentary about the band, titled "We Are The Others - A Decade of Delain", a bonus live performance of "We Are the Others" from Masters Of Rock 2015, and the "Suckerpunch" music video.
