Music News Roundup: Black Sabbath Tops US Chart, Charli XCX, Nine Inch Nails, Phosphorescent, Andrew W.K., Small Black, Miley Cyrus, Save Ferris, Philip Anselmo, Shiprocked, The Flaming Lips, Manika & Ewert And The Two Dragons
Philip Anselmo, backed by his new band The Illegals have released a stream of one of the title track to their debut album “Walk Through Exits Only.” Prepare to get your head split and your butt ripped. It’s fast and unapologetic. Now I’m hoping he will sound like this live. The last times I heard him live, I was sadly disappointed. I’m just sayin’ folks! This stuff is crossed between Pantera and Superjoint….enjoy!
Remember Save Ferris? Save Ferris is not amused by their former singer having a concert without them. She announced that it would be a 10-year reunion but the funny part is…none of the original members actually showed up to play. Uh-oh, here we go!
A tribute show is currently being planned by John Densmore of the Doors to commemorate his good ol’ pal Ray Manzarek. This is nice considering the fact that they supposedly couldn’t agree on the musical future of the band in Ray’s last years. This should be good.
Sweetness. Lightning Dust's new album, out next week, is now streaming via Pitchfork Advance. Click here to listen to Fantasy in its entirety as well as view the album’s artwork.
Ozzy Osbourne has finally come out and said that his ego definitely stalled Black Sabbath reunion all these years. All good now Ozzy, just keep it going! And speaking of Sabbath. THEY HAVE DONE IT. Black Sabbath has topped the US album chart after four decades.
Teen Vogue has premiered Small Black's latest video for “No Stranger." It’s a trippy one!
