Dave Grohl, Jello Biafra, Keith Morris & More Form Supergroup

dave grohlThere’s been a few so-called supergroups over the years, and we all know they can be hit-and-miss… maybe more miss than hit. But putting musicians like Dave Grohl, Jello Biafra, Keith Morris, and (if you can believe it) eight other legendary artists together for one album definitely warrants a little extra attention. Mike Dean and Reed Mullin of Corrosion of Conformity recently partnered up with these well-known music industry vets for their project, Teenage Time Killer. Instrumental parts for Teenage Time Killer’s debut release were recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606, and will include appearances from the following musicians:  Continue reading ‘Dave Grohl, Jello Biafra, Keith Morris & More Form Supergroup’

Fearless Records Announces ‘Punk Goes 90s’ Volume 2 Track List

Fearless RecordsThe hugely popular Fearless Records compilation is back. Last month the label teased fans with the news of a second volume of Punk Goes 90s, and today we finally have all the details. The track list will include songs by classic ’90s bands such as Foo Fighters, Smash Mouth, and Green Day, being covered by acts like Yellowcard, Memphis May Fire, Falling In Reverse, and Mayday Parade.

We’re a little wary of the idea of Yellowcard covering The Smashing Pumpkins or Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! taking on Smash Mouth’s “All Star,” but hope we’re proven wrong. You can check it out yourself when the album drops on April 1st, and view the full track list and Get Scared‘s cover of “My Own Worst Enemy” below.

Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, The Roots Streaming Super Bowl Concert

As someone who doesn’t really follow sports, the Super Bowl kind of snuck up on me this year. And while you’re all getting ready to gorge on chicken wrapped in bacon (yum) and cheering for your favorite team, I’ll be looking forward to one thing, and one thing only:  a series of concerts by Foo Fighters, The Roots, and Imagine Dragons which will be streamed live via RollingStone.com. The Roots will kick things off tomorrow night with a program dubbed “The Roots Present Hip-Hop NYC,” featuring appearances by Run-DMC, Busta Rhymes, and more. Friday will bring Imagine Dragons to the stage at 12 a.m. EST, and Saturday belongs to the Foo Fighters.

Perhaps the coolest part of all of this, besides the actual streaming, is that the performances will be taking place on an aircraft carrier stationed in the Hudson River. Check it all out beginning at 11pm EST tomorrow night.

Foo Fighters Planning New Album For 2014

Rumors circulating last year that the Foo Fighters were nearing the end can now be dismissed for good. (And the crowd goes wild…)

Speaking recently with UK radio station XFN, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed that the group have completed writing the follow-up to 2011′s Wasting Light and plan to record within the next year.

“Well, I’ll tell you, we have been in our studio writing, and in the past few weeks we’ve written an album and we are going to make this album in a way that no one’s ever done before, and we’re pretty excited about it,” said Grohl.

Wasting Light was recorded in Grohl’s garage using only analog equipment. There is no word yet how the band plans to record their still untitled new album, but rest assured we’ll post all the details as the begin to surface online. Follow OS on Twitter to ensure you never miss another headline.

Soundtrax: February Blues

February Blues by OurStage on Grooveshark


For those of us not living in the Sunshine State, we’ve been facing some pretty harsh cold spells lately. And those of us in the Northeast this weekend, well, we’re about to get smothered in snow. When the weather is dipping below zero degrees, and you can’t leave the house without five layers and some seriously dependable thermal wear, you just might get what I like/hate to call the February blues. To help you cope, we’ve put together a Soundtrax that’s full of songs honoring this increasingly chilly month. Enjoy.

Greg’s Top 5 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2013

We’re saying farewell to our co-op Greg, who was a lifesaver for us here at OurStage, as he picked up tasks ranging from Community to Account Management, to Editorial. If you’re a frequent reader of Plugged In, you’ve no doubt read his work. We asked Greg to list some of his music picks for 2013:

Last week, we recapped our favorite releases from the past year. Now, as we bid 2012 adieu, we welcome 2013 and all of the awesomeness it has in store. While there are so many great releases to look forward to, coming up with this list couldn’t have been easier for me. Most of these records are still in the early stages of post-production, but I say it’s never too early to get excited. So here are my top 5 most anticipated albums of 2013 (in no particular order):

City and Colour – (Title TBA)
2011′s Little Hell really put Canadian rock star Dallas Green on the mainstream map. His 3rd full-length solo album was his most powerful yet. Now, after leaving Alexisonfire, his band of 10 years, to focus full time on City and Colour, we can only imagine that the sky is the limit for this talented singer-songwriter. Green wrapped up recording for the fourth album this past November and expects to release it sometime early-mid 2013.

The Dillinger Escape Plan – (Title TBA)
Dillinger are one of those legendary bands who go years without releasing a new album, but then when they do, you realize the wait was worth it. 2010′s Option Paralysis was possibly the most eclectic and eccentric installment by the brutal math-core wizards. With recording for their fifth full-length in the bag, fans are primed for the release this Spring.

Bad Rabbits – (Titles TBA)
In 2009, these Boston locals burst onto the scene with their groundbreaking debut EP Stick Up Kids, 7 songs of non-stop head banging funk soul party pop. On that release alone, they’ve had outstanding momentum, including their run on the 2011 Vans Warped Tour. However, as infectious as those songs are, three years is too long to go without giving fans more. Luckily, Bad Rabbits have a whole arsenal of finished recordings just waiting to be released via shotgun blast in 2013. Get ready for two more EPs, along with videos, limited edition merch, new live dates, and more.

Queens Of The Stone Age – (Title TBA)
The most anticipated rock album of 2013 may be the new Queens Of The Stone Age record. Not only has it been over five years since Josh Homme‘s last release with the project, but now, among all of the rotating members that have played in the band, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has returned on drums along with Nick Oliveri on bass. As two of the quintessential members of QOTSA’s breakthrough album Songs For The Deaf, they helped define the band as many fans know it today. Now that they’re back on board and finished recording, we can only imagine the sheer magnitude of this next album, due out early this year.

Queens Of The Stone Age To Release New Album Early 2013

It’s been about five years since Josh Homme‘s Queens Of The Stone Age released their last album Era Vulgaris, which means the stoner rock project is way overdue for a new installment. Rest assured though, this day is nigh. According to their Facebook page, QOTSA have finished recording and will be releasing a new album in early 2013 (no specific date yet). Judging by the note they sent to Mojo, it sounds like the group really lost their minds with this one, creating a record that “[sounds] like running in a dream inside a codeine cabaret.”

From the list of high caliber artists involved with this record, we’re expecting something big. As we mentioned last month, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who played drums for QOTSA’s infamous Songs For The Deaf, returned for this album, along with bassist Nick Oliveri who was also a quintessential contributor to that record. In addition, it looks like Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters might be collaborating with the band as well. Get ready for what will hopefully be another landmark rock album.

If you like Queens Of The Stone Age, then you might also like OurStage’s own Yellabird.

Hear The Studio Version Of “Cut Me Some Slack” By Paul McCartney And Members Of Nirvana

In case you missed it last week, Nirvana reunited and Paul McCartney is the new Kurt Cobain… Okay, maybe not quite, but Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic did perform together for the first time in 20 years, joined by Pat Smear on guitar and Macca on vocals. The group had been jamming together just for fun and ended up writing a song called “Cut Me Some Slack,” which they premiered at last week’s 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden. Apparently the song was also written and recorded for the soundtrack of Grohl’s Sound City documentary. I have to admit, it’s not the most impressive work by these musicians. Listen to it below and see what you think:
