Muse spreads a "Thought Contagion" with new song

Muse's new song "Thought Contagion" is here. The latest track from the British trio is available now for digital download. "Thought Contagion" is accompanied by a neon-soaked, '80s-flavored video, which is equal parts "Thriller" and Stranger Things. You can watch the clip now via YouTube. Speaking about the track, frontman Matt Bellamy says, "The meaning of the song 'Thought Contagion' is about how other people's thoughts, ideas and beliefs can sometimes infect your mind, get into your head and change the way you think yourself." "Thought Contagion" is the follow-up single to Muse's 2017 one-off track, "Dig Down." Compared to…

Ever since it was announced that Warped Tour would be ending this year, multiple fan petitions have surfaced in an effort to convince My Chemical Romance to reunite for the last edition of the festival that helped launch the band's career.

Since its release in 2015, Disturbed's Grammy-nominated "The Sound of Silence" cover has brought the band's music to some unexpected places, including being used for a Dancing with the Stars routine. While James and Cipres arguably had the most metal backing music of all the competitors, they ended up in fifth place. Germany took home the gold…

Jimmy Page doubts there will be another Led Zeppelin reunion, says "the time has gone"

In a new interview with U.K. magazine Planet Rock, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page again addresses the oft-asked question about whether he thinks his old band will ever perform live again.  While his answer is disappointing, it's unsurprising. "I very much doubt it," the 74-yar-old rocker says. "You've just got to face facts. We've gone past the 10th anniversary of the [reunion show at London's] O2 [arena], where we managed to do one serious concert. That's the only thing that we've done for such a long time, so I very much doubt we'll do anything else. I really think the…

Disturbed goes acoustic in recording studio clip

Disturbed may be exploring their softer side on their next album. The Chicago metallers have shared a video from a recording studio showing them playing acoustic guitars and using brush drumsticks. In the clip, you can hear frontman David Draiman say that what they're working on is a "big departure," while still featuring a "gargantuan hook." It would make sense if Disturbed wanted to take a more acoustic approach to their next album, given the success of their Grammy-nominated orchestral cover of the Simon and Garfunkel classic, "The Sound of Silence." The new album will be the follow-up to Disturbed's…
