The Rolling Stones Premiere “Doom And Gloom,” Plan Greatest Hits Release

Rock and roll legends The Rolling Stones are proving today they still have plenty of hits left in them with the release of a brand new single, “Doom And Gloom.” The song hails from GRRR!, a new greatest hits collection which The Stones will be releasing with the addition of two new tracks in November. You can stream the song below:

Pretty wild, right? “Doom And Gloom” had its official premiere earlier this week on BBC Radio2 and will soon be available stateside through every digital retailer.

Morrissey Performs Live & Discusses Smiths Reunion On The Colbert Report

Stephen Colbert isn’t exactly known for his subtleties, so it came as a bit of a shock when Morrissey agreed to not only perform on the The Colbert Report, but also sit down for a short interview. Hardly cracking a smile the entire time, Morrissey and Colbert battle it out for one of the more awkward five minute interviews I’ve seen, before Morrissey goes on to perform the fairly new and unreleased “People Are the Same Everywhere,” along with 2009’s “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris.”

You can watch Morrissey and Colbert’s banter on vegetarianism, royalty, and why The Smiths aren’t getting back together, along with both performances right here.

OWSLA Announces First Label Tour, Will Be Brining The Noise To A Town Near You

It pay to be friends with Skrillex, assuming of course that every artist signed to OWSLA, The Undercut One’s imprint record label, is friends with him. The producer/DJ has effectively reshaped the pop and electronic landscape ever since he broke through with his second EP Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites nearly two years ago. Since that time American audiences have become much more receptive to EDM, especially EDM performed by artists that slot well into the sonic mold that Sonny Moore helped popularize.

So it’s about time that the coterie of artists that make up OWSLA’s roster (and a couple of their closest musically inclined friends) hit the road together. And that’s exactly what they’re doing this fall.

Rage Against The Machine Celebrate 20 Year Anniversary Of Debut Album With Limited Edition Box Set

Can you believe it’s been twenty years since Rage Against The Machine released their debut self-titled album? In 1992, the politically charged rap/rock hybrid group came right out of the gate with one of the most disturbing and controversial photographs of the 20th century as their album cover, a bold statement that showed the world just how serious they were about making an impact. Since then, Rage has been one of the most influential bands in the world, aiding not only in the world of music, but in the world of political activism as well.

Now, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their momentous first album, they will be re-issuing the record in multiple limited edition box set formats entitled Rage Against The Machine – XX.  According to NME.com, the release will “contain a remastered version of the album, demos and previously unseen live footage as well as a film of their 2010 gig in Finsbury Park and new liner notes written by Public Enemy‘s Chuck D. The deluxe box set will include “two CDs, two DVDs, one 180g vinyl LP, one 40-page booklet and two-sided poster, or as a Special Edition with two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks.” There will also be a 180g vinyl edition and a single CD edition with three bonus tracks. Rage Against The Machine – XX is set to be released on November 26th. For more details and track-listings, click here.

Sell-Out: Is Music Licensing The Saving Grace For Artist Income?

Let me just bypass the whole “record industry is failing” and “illegal downloading is on the rise” introduction. We all know that professional musicians need to get paid, but this means finding new means of doing so other than record sales and royalties. Over the past 5 to 10 years it has become increasingly apparent that music can be used as a marketing tool—one that can help sell products by adding a coolness factor or a down-to-earth credibility to advertisements that says “hey, we know what you like.” In the past, allowing your music to be used in advertisements or by big corporations for financial gain was known as “selling out.” Now it seems like this might just be survival.

Green Day To Provide Soundtrack For ‘CSI: NY’ Episode

Green Day has been causing quite the stir lately, between Billie Joe Armstrong’s on stage explosion and the constant whirlwind of promotion behind the band’s trilogy albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre!.

But they aren’t stopping anytime soon, so gear up CSI: NY fans, because you’ll soon be graced with the soundtrack of several new Green Day songs. Appearing during an intense chase scene, viewers will catch narration in the form of “Stop When The Red Lights Flash,” “Amy,” “Night Life,” “The Forgotten,” and “Kill The DJ.”

“We were stoked when we found out CSI: NY wanted to use our music instead of dialogue to narrate the first few acts of the episode,” said Green Day. “It’s the first time something like this has been done on the series, and we are blown away with what we’ve seen.”

You can catch the episode Oct. 19 at 8pm EST on CBS.

Riffs, Rants & Rumors: Justin Rice Jumps Between Bishop Allen and The Last Names

First you hear the hazy, languid tones of a young woman whose voice falls somewhere in the ethereal zone between Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval and Cat Power. At times, a male vocal partner’s warm pipes waft into the mix. Soon you’re sucked into a mood that’s somewhere between the last, evanescent rays of summer sunshine softly receding from view and an evocative, autumnal flickering of gossamer guitars and diaphanous keyboard lines. You’re listening to Wilderness, the debut album by The Last Names, a married couple who became a band by accident.

Jonny Craig Writes Open Letter To Younger Self

Jonny Craig (ex-Dance Gavin Dance) took a little break from touring the UK this week to write an open letter to his younger self, which as it turns out, his older self is a pretty big fan of.

The letter starts off pretty humble, with Jonny’s reassurance to his younger self that he’s still the coolest kid on the block, with the sickest tattoos.

“What up young money? In case you were wondering, yes, you are still a bad ass. Who are we kidding? You weren’t wondering, you know what’s up. Don’t worry about those first janky tattoos you got back in the day for fun. You’ll get many, many more that look pretty sick. Oh, and you still know it all.”

Intrigued? You can read the full letter after the jump.
