You can watch the impromptu street performance now on YouTube.Sanchez was stopped while walking in his new hometown of Brooklyn, New York. The Color Before the Sun, Coheed and Cambria's forthcoming new album, is in part inspired by Sanchez's new life in Brooklyn with his wife and newborn son. The album is Coheed's first to not continue the story of the Amory Wars, a sci-fi epic that tells the story of the band's namesake characters.Coheed and Cambria has so far released three songs from The Color Before the Sun: "You Got Spirit, Kid," "Here to Mars," and "Eraser." The album will be released in full October 16.The band will be touring in support of The Color Before the Sun starting with an intimate show at the Brooklyn metal club Saint Vitus on October 9.

Eddie Vedder Celebrates with Chicago Cubs After Wild-Card Win

Jeffrey R. Staab/CBSNoted Chicago Cubs fan Eddie Vedder traveled to Pittsburgh to watch his favorite team take on the Pirates in Wednesday night's National League wild-card game, and he didn't leave disappointed.  Vedder's Cubbies beat the Pirates 4-0 to advance to the next round of the MLB playoffs.  After the game, the Pearl Jam frontman joined the team for a champagne celebration in the locker room.The Cubs will take on the St. Louis Cardinals in the next playoff round.  When asked if he'll be traveling with the Cubs when they play St. Louis in Game 1 on Friday, Vedder said, "I have kids and a job.  I'll be in Chicago!"Just like everyone else who roots for the team, Vedder is a long-suffering Cubs fan -- the franchise hasn't won a World Series since 1908.  This season marks the first time since 2008 that the Cubs have even made the playoffs.Earlier this year, Vedder led Wrigley Field fans in a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during a regular season game between the Cubs and the New York Mets.  Vedder has made numerous appearances at Wrigley to sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" since 1998, when he was one of the first to sing it after the passing of legendary Cubs announcer Harry Caray, who would always lead the crowd in singing the song during the seventh-inning stretch.Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

The End of Music, LLC/Courtesy of HBOThirty-one of Kurt Cobain's personal demos will be released in the "super deluxe" edition of Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, a companion album to the Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck documentary film.

It really is furthering our understanding of one of the most significant artists of our time."The 31-track "super deluxe" edition of The Home Recordings CD will be released along with the Montage of Heck Blu-ray/DVD in November.

AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Loses Appeal Seeking Lighter Sentence

AFP Photo/Marty MelvilleAC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, who was sentenced to eight months of home detention in July after pleading guilty to charges of threatening to kill and drug possession, has lost his appeal for a lighter sentence.  The New Zealand Herald reports that Rudd's appeal was dismissed on Monday by a High Court in his current hometown of Tauranga, New Zealand.The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's charges stem from a September 2014 arrest, after Rudd apparently had threatened to kill one of his assistants and was found in possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.  In addition to the home detention, Phil's sentence included six months of post-release conditions, while he also was ordered to pay $120,000 in reparations.At a recent appeal hearing, Rudd's lawyer argued that the sentence was too severe, while suggesting that the judge hadn't taken into account the amount of money the drummer was losing by not being able to work during his detention period.  The attorney also maintained that as a penalty from the drug charges, Rudd should have received either a fine or community service, instead of getting a longer home detention sentence.However, the prosecuting attorney claimed that Rudd had "glossed over" the severity of his actions, and maintained that the man he threatened feared for his and his family's safety.  The prosecutor also pointed out that Phil had only paid the man $50,000 of the $120,000 reparation sum.Rudd's legal issues led AC/DC to replace him on their current tour in support of their Rock or Bust album with former drummer Chris Slade.  The rock legends begins a Down Under tour leg on November 4 in Sydney, Australia, and will wrap up the trek with a pair of dates in New Zealand -- on December 12 in Wellington and on December 15 in Auckland.In August, Rudd told Rolling Stone that he hopes to rejoin AC/DC once he puts his legal troubles behind him, but the band has made no statements regarding his status with the group.Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

The one thing that holds the songs together is [frontwoman] Shirley [Manson's] vocals, and her singing sounds amazing on all the tracks."In the meantime, Garbage will be touring in support of their 20th anniversary on their 20 Years Queer tour, which kicks off October 6 in San Diego. The fact that Garbage has lasted 20 years is astounding to Vig."It was a grand experiment, and we had no intention of really making Garbage a full-time band," he says. "I certainly had no intention of going on tour," he adds, saying he mainly wanted to produce, not perform.Vig was, and still is, known as a producer -- he worked on The Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream and, most famously, Nirvana's Nevermind -- and he has continued to produce while drumming in Garbage. Most recently, he produced Foo Fighters' latest album, Sonic Highways, which, of course, was the subject of the Emmy winning HBO series, Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. Dave Grohl has said that there will be a second season of Sonic Highways, of which Vig may once again be a part."Dave's told me different ideas, and I think HBO's got some different ideas," Vig says. "I think the Foos will definitely be involved in some level but it won't be the exact same format of the last series. As far as I know they haven't figured out exactly how they're gonna do it yet, but I'm looking forward to it.""When it was done last time we were really bummed," he continues. "We were like, 'This has been one of the most interesting and unique projects I've ever worked on, and probably we'll never do something like this again.' We were completely spoiled 'cause it was such a gas so, yeah, I sure hope we do it again."Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Tim Commerford Says Rage Against the Machine "Are Still a Band"; Doesn't Believe

Credit: Dana KleinWhile Rage Against the Machine hasn't performed live together since 2011, bassist Tim Commerford says the band may return to the stage some day."We are still a band, and we still might play again," Commerford tells Rolling Stone. "We don't have anything scheduled right now, but you never know what the future will bring."One thing Commerford is sure of, however, is that the terrorist organization ISIS is not "real.""I don't believe ISIS is real. ISIS has been an inspiration for a lot of the songs that I wrote with Wakrat," he says, referring to his new band.Commerford adds that the he thinks the videos of ISIS beheading people are fake."They're high-def. They have a soundtrack," he says. "The parts of those videos that you couldn't fake are edited out."Commerford is a self-professed "conspiracy theorist," which he says makes its way into his lyrics for Wakrat."I say, 'Question everything.' It feels good to find information that doesn't mesh out. I'm into it," he says. "I'm proud of who I am. When you hear the [Wakrat] record, it's there for sure."Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Royal Blood Built a Studio in Their Bus for Second Album

Credit: Eliot Lee HazelRoyal Blood has spent most of the year touring in support of their breakthrough self-titled debut album, which means that they've had to begin work on their sophomore record while on the road. Writing while touring can be a difficult process, by bassist and vocalist Mike Kerr came up with a solution."I built a studio in the back of our bus," Kerr tells NME. "It's very hard to write when everything keeps falling over because the driver's taken a massive corner. It was our writing den -- we'd have Clint Eastwood movies playing with the volume down."Royal Blood was celebrated for it's simple, straightforward approach, courtesy of Kerr's distorted bass riffs and Ben Thatcher's giant drumming. That approach won't differ too much on their second album, as Kerr says the band feels they "don't need to reinvent the wheel."Royal Blood is currently in the finishing stretch of their U.S. tour, which concludes October 9 during the second weekend of the Austin City Limits festival.Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
