It's official: Red Hot Chili Peppers are giving fans another album, but first comes their new single, "Black Summer."
After teasing the new track last week, the band released "Black Summer," along with the music video, at midnight on Friday. In the same breath, they revealed that their new album, called Unlimited Love, would be out April 1.
Shortly after the news, RHCP said in a lengthy Instagram post, "Our only goal is to get lost in the music. We spent thousands of hours, collectively and individually, honing our craft and showing up for one another, to make the best album we could."
"We yearn to shine a light in the world, to uplift, connect, and bring people together. Each of the songs on our new album UNLIMITED LOVE, is a facet of us, reflecting our view of the universe," the post continued. "This is our life’s mission."
John Frusciante, Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith and Flea signed off on the note by telling fans, "Thank you for listening, we hope you enjoy it."
Unlimited Love will be RHCP's first studio album since Frusciante rejoined the band in 2019. It's currently available for pre-order. An exclusive colored vinyl of the album is available for pre-order as well.
Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are engaged and, of course, it was anything but traditional.
MGK, real name Colson Baker, revealed that the proposal went down on Tuesday "beneath the same branches we fell in love under."
"'Yes, in this life and every life' beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me," the rocker wrote along side a video showing off the stunning ring he proposed with on Megan's hand.
"I know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love," he explained.
"In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree," she began in the caption. "We asked for magic We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma."
"Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him," the Jennifer's Body star continued. "And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes."
"…and then we drank each other’s blood," she added. "1.11.22."
Megan, 35, was previously married to Brian Austin Green, who she shares three children with. MGK, 31, has no prior marriages and has one daughter.
Judas Priest's Richie Faulkner is "stable and resting" after undergoing emergency heart surgery.
The update comes from his partner, Mariah Lynch, who took to Instagram on Tuesday to say, "Thank you to everyone for all your messages."
Alongside a photo of the couple with their one-year-old daughter, Daisy Mae, Lynch wrote, "Richie underwent major emergency heart surgery. He is stable & resting. If you know him, you know how tough & strong he is. So tough that he finished the show & kept the hair flips coming."
Lynch added, "There's no one like him. We'd be lost without him #HotDad."
Priest frontman Rob Halford also took to social media to spread the "good news." Sharing a photo of the guitarist, he wrote, "Good news metal maniacs as you may have seen via Ritchies beautiful @mariahklynch our Falcon is stable and resting after undergoing extensive heart surgery."
The health update comes just one day after the band announced they were postponing their tour due to Faulkner's health.
"It is with deep regret that we have to postpone the rest of our U.S. tour," Judas Priest said. "Richie Faulkner has major medical heart condition issues which have landed him in the hospital where he is being treated. In the meantime, we are all sending love to our Falcon to wish him a speedy recovery... As soon as we have any updates from the doctors on when we can reschedule the dates, we will of course announce them."
A judge has dismissed a case accusing Marilyn Manson of sexual assault.
According to TMZ, which obtained legal documents, the lawsuit was dismissed on Tuesday due to the statute of limitations having expired regarding the claims.
The case was filed against the shock rocker in May by an accuser known only as Jane Doe. She claimed that she dated Manson in 2011 and when things went south, he raped her. The accuser also claimed that she had repressed the memory, but was unable to specify how the memory was repressed.
Manson, born Brian Warner, still faces several other lawsuits from women with their own allegations of sexual assault by the rocker, including actor Esmé Bianco, model Ashley Morgan Smithline and Warner's former assistant, Ashley Walters.
Saturday's "We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert" was cut short thanks to Hurricane Henri.
The event, which was held in Central Park and put on by Live Nation and industry icon Clive Davis, came to a halt just after the halfway mark when lightening struck within a 10-mile radius, Varietyreports.
According to the outlet, the good times came to an end for 60,0000 attendees at the two-hour-and-37-minute mark, in the midst of Barry Manilow belting out "I Can't Smile Without You." An announcer interrupted the performance saying, "Attention. Please pay close attention to the following safety measures. Due to approaching severe weather, all persons should move quickly and calmly to the nearest exits and proceed to your vehicles and protected areas."
Performers and concertgoers both waited out the weather in hopes the show would go on, with talks that perhaps the event could continue even without an audience and strictly as broadcast. However, after about three hours and no signs of the weather letting up, it was announced that it was a wrap.
"We Love NYC" was scheduled to be a five-hour event that would treat attendees to performances from stars representing an array of genres. Among those who hit the stage before things went awry were Jennifer Hudson, Andrea Bocelli, Earth Wind & Fire, LL Cool J, Kane Brown, Journey, Santana, Jon Batiste and Polo G.
Meanwhile, acts including Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Maluma, Patti Smith and the Killers were stunted.
The first taste of Machine Gun Kelly's new album Born with Horns is here. The rocker dropped his new single "Papercuts" overnight.
Simultaneous with the song's release was the Cole Bennett-directed video, which starts off with MGK cruising down the road on a motorcycle with oversized horns protruding from the sides.
In the video, Kelly is rocking a variety of hairstyles, from a Edward Scissorhands-esque style to a shaggy blonde look. He also sports the shaved head he debuted ahead of the track's release before ripping off a bald cap, seemingly revealing his true hair underneath.
The campy visuals take viewers on a ride as MGK sings about the constraints and expectations of fame.
"Bleach my hair, mess it up/Take my life, dress it up/Signed a deal, I got papercuts/ They wanted them, but they got us," the lyrics read.
"Papercuts" is the first single off Kelly's upcoming Travis Barker-produced album, Born with Horns. A release date for the project has not been announced.
