Blink 182 Drop New Single! Band Set To Embark On Summer Tour With A Day To Remember, All Time Low And The All American Rejects

(PCM) Fans are overjoyed with the news that Blink 182 will be hitting the road this summer for a headlining tour and bringing along their friends A Day To Remember, All Time Low, The All-American Rejects and DJ Spider. This is without a doubt going to be one of the hottest touring packages of the summer.

The news of the tour comes after Blink 182 released a lyric video for their brand new single “Bored To Death”! We absolutely can’t wait to rock out to this one live! The track is the first single from the band’s highly anticipated new album, “California”, set for release July 1st. The track was slated to premiere at a later date, but due to a studio leak the band decided, much to our delight, to release the track earlier than expected.

The tour will kick off on July 22nd in San Diego and wraps up with dates at Irvine Meadows September 29th and the Forum October 1st.

Nada Surf Set To Play Le Bataclan In Paris

Nada-Surf(PCM) Barsuk recording group Nada Surf will be among the first artists to perform at Paris’ famed Le Bataclan upon the world renowned venue’s long awaited reopening in the wake of last November’s terrorist attacks. The NYC-based band – who were among the many artists who took part in Eagles of Death Metal’s “Play It Forward” campaign, performing EODM’s “I Love You All The Time” to benefit victims of the November 13th attacks – will play Le Bataclan on December 2nd.

“We’re not nervous about playing Le Bataclan,” says Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws, “in the same way we weren’t nervous being in New York after 9/11. There are two reasons we want to play this show: one is that we want to help contribute to a sense of life continuing as it did before. We want to help people have a good time and bring positive intentions that stand in opposition to fear. The other reason is in the same spirit – Le Bataclan is our favorite venue in Paris. We’ve played there three times. The day after the attacks we asked our manager when we could play there next.”
Currently touring Europe in support of their acclaimed new album, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, Nada Surf will spend much of this year on the road, including an epic summer world tour encompassing North American headline dates, international festival appearances, and more. The announced dates culminate with a pair of New York City homecoming gigs, set for Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 17th and NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on September 18th. For complete details and ticket information, please see

The band recently performed live on NPR’s nationally syndicated “World Café” and was filmed performing at KEXP’s new studios in Seattle, WA.
Nada Surf’s eighth studio recording, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE includes the single, “Rushing,” accompanied by a romantic companion video filmed earlier this year in Paris. “Rushing” – written and directed by acclaimed French filmmakers Emilie and Sarah Barbault – can be viewed now at Nada Surf’s official YouTube channel.

Want To Earn Some Extra Cash This Summer? Make A Musical Bet!


(PCM) Some you will see that title and click on it, probably thinking it’s a get rich quick scam or something along those lines. No … this is guaranteed money! No, you don’t have to hold a neighborhood car wash or cut the neighbors lawn, or better yet construct some sort of stand so that your kids can sell lemonade out of the front yard. Even though I have done all of the aforementioned and they can kind of provide a good time. Maybe not the cutting grass part, but hey, it keeps you moving at least!

This is a different way of making some cash. Here’s my idea and it involves calling your friends or a family member. Especially the kind of friend that has an old concert t-shirt tucked away in their dresser drawer. Or maybe lost in the back of a closet. Maybe your friend from back in the day that had the long hair and rocked out to Guns ‘N Roses.

If you have been stuck under a rock or away or a distant planet, I would like to break the news to you that Axl Rose has rejoined his old band Guns ‘N Roses. Yes, the inevitable has happened and Axl has rejoined his old friends onstage. In fact, they will set out on a stadium tour this summer. Then it was announced that Axl Rose will replace Brian Johnson on AC/DC’s “Rock or Bust Tour.” The reason given for Johnson’s absence from the tour was due to hearing loss. I don’t know if I believe that, but we shall see how all that play’s out.

The tour is supposed to kick off on May 7th in Portugal. Let’s see if Axl shows up. I hope he does. He owes it to the fans that he has disappointed over the years for no showing and canceling. It will be the ultimate retribution if all the planned shows with AC/DC and G’NR with Axl on the mic are played without any issues. So, all I’m saying is if you want to make some extra cash this summer, make a bet with a friend that these shows will be a nightmare, and Axl doesn’t show.

Maybe they will wrap him in bubble wrap and deliver him to each show like that, who knows? All I’m really hoping is that history doesn’t repeat itself, and Axl finally man’s up and rocks the house like he was always meant to do!

Legendary Artist Prince Dead At Age 57


(PCM) We are deeply saddened with the breaking news that legendary artist Prince has tragically passed away at the age of 57 at his home in the Paisley Park compound in Minnesota. While earlier reports claimed that a male victim had died at the estate, there was no official confirmation that it was Prince, however multiple sources are now confirming that the victim was indeed the iconic singer. His death has now been official confirmed by his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure to the Associated Press.

Prince recently made headlines when his private jet had to make an emergency landing in Illinois due to a medical emergency. Prince later performed at concert the next day assuring fans that he was just fine and was only battling a case of the flu. He later ended up cancelling two additional live performances due health concerns. TMZ obtained audio of the call made to police this morning from Prince’s estate and what can be heard is “man down, not breathing”.

Prince skyrocketed to superstardom back in 1982 with his hit album “1999” and continued to churn out hits for decades. He earned seven Grammy awards and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for Purple Rain in 1985. He has sold over 100 million records and was inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 2004.

There is still an on going investigation into Prince’s immediate cause of death and this story is still developing. Our sincere condolences go out to Prince’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. It is terribly tragic that another musical icon has been taken from us so soon.

SIXX:A.M. Announce The #ReasonToRise Campaign


(PCM) During this time of both social and political turmoil it is important that we all take a few moments and think about ways in which we can rise up together and overcome many of our fears and obstacles by working hand in hand with one another rather than being at odd. Music can truly be an unifying force that brings people of every imaginable background together as one to help in creating a better future for humanity.

We are absolutely thrilled to share the news about SIXX:A.M.’s #ReasonToRise campaign as it urges fans to look at their surroundings, see injustices, and stand up to them, including the current volatile presidential election, the increasingly horrifying heroin epidemic, and more. We all have our “#ReasonToRise” and the men of SIXX:A.M. are asking fans to share what makes them raise their fists and act.

The song “Rise” is the band’s first single off their highly anticipated new album “Vol. 1 Prayers For The Damned” and it is already dominating the rock charts.  “Rise” is ultimately a song that implores the general public to open their eyes, go against the grain, and stand up.

“Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change, a sentiment completely encompassed by the musicianship, lyrics, and passion of ‘Rise’”, Nikki Sixx explores. James Michael goes on to explain, “‘Rise’ is about how we find ourselves at a global tipping point and how it is our duty as citizens of this world to come together, communicate with one another and rise up to demand more of ourselves and our leaders.” While not a political band, SIXX:A.M. know it is time for us to all unite for the changes we want to see happen in the world and are ready and willing to spearhead the movement. As “Rise” urges:

“Don’t let the status quo define you.”

Taking their heavy-hitting message on the road, fans can find the band kicking off their global festival circuit with a strong performance at Welcome to Rockville on April 30th. SIXX:A.M. will also be performing fan favorites, new and old, on the Vol.1 Prayers For The Damned tour cycle which will include seven major rock festivals in Europe, a headlining tour beginning May 3rd in Nashville, TN, and many more dates soon to be announced. For more information on tour dates and the band, please visit

SIXX:A.M.’s “Vol.1 Prayers For the Damned”, will be available globally next week, April 29th.
