Scott Ian is getting the action figure treatment. An eight-inch, poseable toy version of the Anthrax guitarist will be released this fall.
Made in collaboration with Neca Toys, the action figure recreates Ian's tattoos and his signature beard. It also comes with a tiny Jackson King V guitar, plus three interchangeable heads, including a zombie head which nods to Ian's cameo on The Walking Dead.
The figure will cost you $49.99. You can pre-order yours now via Scott-Ian.com.
Ian and the rest of Anthrax will be opening for Slayer on the thrash legends' farewell tour, which begins May 10 in…
There are only three things certain in life: death, taxes, and a new NOW That's What I Call Music! album.
The 66th volume of the long-running compilation series will be released on May 4, and features the Imagine Dragons single "Whatever It Takes."
This year actually marks two decades of NOW albums in the U.S.: After launching in the U.K. in the '80s, the first American NOW album was released in 1998. To commemorate the milestone, the franchise has launched a new 20th anniversary hub, which allows you to watch videos, take part in music trivia and competitions, and access links…
Scars on Broadway is headed for a revival.
System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian's side project will release a new song next Monday, April 23.
The track will be the first preview of the long-awaited second Scars on Broadway album, the follow-up to the band's 2008 self-titled debut. But while Scars on Broadway will be releasing new music, new material from System of a Down, who haven't released an album since 2005's Hypnotize, is still in the theoretical stages.
In an interview with Rolling Stone last December, frontman Serj Tankian said the band has worked on new music, but…

As with the previously announced spring leg, which begins April 30 in Houston, fellow female-fronted band New Years Day will provide support on the summer dates.

Thirty Seconds to Mars debuted at a career-high number two on the Billboard 200 with their new album, AMERICA. The fifth studio effort from Jared Leto and company moved a total of 62,000 equivalent album units, 54,000 of which were pure album sales.
Prior to AMERICA, the highest-charting Thirty Seconds to Mars album was 2013's Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, which debuted at number six.
Last month, Leto said that if AMERICA debuted at number one, he'd shave off his beard. While the band lost the number-one spot to "Bodak Yellow" sensation Cardi B's debut album, perhaps a career-high debut…
A Perfect Circle has released a new song called "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish," a track from the band's forthcoming album, Eat the Elephant.
The deceptively catchy, upbeat tune is accompanied by a visualizer showing a constant loop of dolphins swimming through red-tinged water, which you can watch now on YouTube.
Despite its happy sound, "So Long" contains some dark lyrics, and references the recent deaths of David Bowie, actors Gene Wilder and Carrie Fisher, and boxing legend Muhammad Ali with the line "Willy Wonka, Major Tom/Ali and Leia have moved on." The song's title is also…
Earlier this year, Stone Sour announced that guitarist Josh Rand wouldn't be joining the band on their winter tour in order to enter a "treatment center." The announcement didn't share any specifics regarding his condition or the facility, but Rand has now revealed that he's been struggling with alcohol and Xanax addiction.
"My high anxiety and desire to feel comfortable in my own skin over the years led to an alcohol and Xanax dependency," Rand writes in a Facebook post. "That along with aggression issues made me feel miserable and I just could not continue to live that way."
In addition to performing on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, Jack White also appeared in a cut-for-time sketch, which you can watch now on YouTube.
The sketch takes place at a wedding reception where the groom's best man, played by cast member Luke Null, is giving a toast. The stock speech soon takes a turn when the best man starts singing a song revealing that he and the bride, Cecily Strong, are having an affair. Not only that, but Jack White is involved too, and shows up to shred a solo while the oblivious groom, host John Mulaney, confusedly…
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will publish a memoir this fall. The book, published by Grand Central Publishing, is titled Acid for the Children, and will arrive September 25.
According to its official description, Acid for the Children will tell Flea's "fascinating life story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you’d expect from an LA street rat turned world-famous rock star."
The news of the memoir's release comes a full four years after Flea first announced in 2014 he'd be writing a book.
"I love literature deeply," Flea said at the time. "I view books…
