Jack White Reunites The Raconteurs at Nashville Concert


Image Courtesy of Third Man RecordsJack White performed at the Bridestone Arena in his adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday night, and he brought some old friends along with him. According to Rolling Stone, after a brief intermission, White brought out the members of his first post-White Stripes band, The Raconteurs.White and the united Raconteurs -- which featured Brendan Benson and Jack Lawrence, plus White's drummer Daru Jones, who filled in for original drummer Patrick Keeler -- performed their hits "Steady as She Goes" and "Salute Your Solution."The Raconteurs recorded two albums, 2006's Broken Boy Soldiers and 2008's Consolers of the Lonely, before going on hiatus. Despite rumors of a new album, Benson told Billboard last year that new Raconteurs material is "kind of off the table." White has since gone on to form The Dead Weather and, of course, launch his solo career.Also during Thursday's Nashville show, White brought out legendary country singer Loretta Lynn to sing "Portland, Oregon" from Lynn's 2004  album Van Lear Rose, which White produced.White's next show is January 30 at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Rap group Run the Jewels will open the show.Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist John Frusciante Reveals Electronic Project, T


Image Courtesy of Record CollectionJohn Frusciante's post-Red Hot Chili Peppers projects have taken a decidedly different musical path than his old band, including collaborations with hip-hop duo Black Knights and seminal new wave band Duran Duran. Now, the ex-RHCP guitarist has announced his newest venture: Trickfinger, a  band focusing on the acid house genre of electronic music.Trickfinger's self-titled debut album will be released on April 7, according to Resident Advisor. As a preview, Frusciante has released the opening track from Trickfinger, "After Below." You can listen to the track on SoundCloud.Inside the Trickfinger record packaging, Frusciante is also including a letter that he wrote in 2012 explaining his foray into electronic music. "I had lost interest in traditional songwriting and I was excited about finding new methods for creating music," he writes. "I’d surround myself with machines, program one and then another and enjoy what was a fascinating process from beginning to end."Meanwhile, RHCP drummer Chad Smith told Rolling Stone that Frusciante's old band is working on their new album, calling it "very different and unique." Chances are though that the album won't sound like acid house.Here is the Trickfinger track list:"After Below" "Before Above" "Rainover" "Sain" "Exlam" "85h" "4:30" "Phurip"Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Angels & Airwaves Releases Animated "Tunnels" Video


Credit: Johnny BuzzerioTom DeLonge's post-Blink-182 project Angels & Airwaves has premiered the video for their song "Tunnels."The video features DeLonge and his band rocking out to the anthemic track as clips from Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker -- an animated short film based on AVA's latest album, The Dream Walker -- play in the background. You can watch the video on Entertainment Weekly's website.The release of the "Tunnels" video feels like in an exercise in bad timing -- or, perhaps, genius marketing -- as DeLonge is currently involved in a very public disagreement with his Blink-182 band mates, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. Earlier this week, Hoppus and Barker reportedly released a statement saying DeLonge is no longer in the band, which DeLonge responded to by saying the exact opposite. Since then, Hoppus and Barker have taken to Rolling Stone, calling DeLonge "ungrateful" and "disingenuous," while DeLonge posted another letter reiterating that he never quit Blink-182.Angels & Airwaves, however, seems to be humming along just fine. Along with the "Tunnels" video, the band has released a preview of the upcoming comic book series also based on The Dream Walker. The first issue will be published on March 25.Along with the album, the animated short film -- which recently won Best Animated Film at the Toronto International Short Film Festival -- and the comic books, DeLonge has also promised novels and a feature-length live action film as part of the entire The Dream Walker project, all of which are due out sometime this year.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

"Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" Director Brett Morgen Talks "Raw, Intimate" Film


Image Courtesy of The End of Music, LLC/HBOKurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, the first fully-authorized documentary about the late Nirvana frontman, made its premiere last weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. In an interview with Rolling Stone, director Brett Morgen says he "felt a lot more pressure" with Montage of Heck than with any other project he's worked on, including The Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane."I don't think there has ever been, or will ever be, another movie about an icon that's this raw or intimate," he says.One of the bigger stories that came out of the Montage of Heck premiere was that Foo Fighters frontman -- and Nirvana drummer -- Dave Grohl was absent from the film. Morgen told Billboard that Grohl was interviewed, but that he couldn't cut the interview in time for the Sundance premiere of the film. The director reiterated that explanation to Rolling Stone, adding that he "didn't think I needed two people from Nirvana.""It's not that type of movie," Morgen says. "So I was fine locking picture with [Nirvana bassist] Krist [Novoselic]."Another big story surrounding the film was the use of Cobain's unreleased solo material."The score is all unreleased Cobain music. They don't have titles," Morgen explains. "Before people saw the movie, there were these weird press releases focusing on the unreleased music. And it's like: It's a movie. We're not going to stop it and play a song for four minutes."Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will air on HBO on May 4.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Credit: Pamela LittkyIt didn't take centuries for Fall Out Boy to return to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, but it did take more than seven years. With their single "Centuries," FOB makes their first appearance in the 90th percentile of the Hot 100 since 2007, when "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" hit number two -- the band's highest position on the chart to date."Centuries," which jumps from number 12 to number 10 this week, is the lead single from FOB's most recent album, American Beauty/American Psycho. The album is similarly enjoying great success, as it debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Following number one debuts for 2007's Infinity on High and 2013's Save Rock and Roll, FOB now has three total -- and two straight -- number one albums.In addition to "Centuries" and "This Ain't a Scene," FOB scored two more top-10 Hot 100 hits: "Dance, Dance" and "Sugar, We're Goin' Down" -- both from the band's 2005 breakout album, From Under the Cork Tree.If you'd like to catch "Centuries" live, Fall Out Boy will be launching their Boys of Zummer tour this June.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Tom DeLonge Posts Letter to Fans About Blink-182 Turmoil


Tony Woolliscroft/WireImageThe drama surrounding Blink-182 shows no signs of letting up.Guitarist Tom DeLonge on Tuesday posted a lengthy letter to fans on Facebook, explaining his side of the story following reports that he'd quit the band.Though his bandmates Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker reportedly released a statement Monday saying he'd quit, then claimed to Rolling Stone that he's "ungrateful" and "disrespectful," DeLonge offered a different take. He wrote, "I love Blink and am incredibly grateful for having it in my life. It has given me everything. EVERYTHING. I started this band, it was in my garage where I dreamed up the mischief."The way he explains it, he once tried to put together a "band summit" in Utah to "talk and work things out." Later, he attempted to record an EP with the band, but "squabbling and politics" interfered with the project.DeLonge emphasized that he had other projects, including his band Angels & Airwaves, on which he's working, but Blink-182 essentially wanted him to put those on the back burner.He states, "I wrote this same letter to them a year ago. But it created a massive argument, the biggest one yet actually. I just wanted us to do things we all agreed on. But that was their moment to dig in. From their view I was controlling everything. In reality, I was scared to put myself out there again. To repeat the EP experience."To his surprise, DeLonge says, his bandmates put out a statement on Monday claiming he was out of the group. He continues, "It’s not in my nature to fuel negativity about the legacy of the band on something as trashy as the Internet world."On Monday, DeLonge released a statement declaring, "The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year. I love Blink-182 and I’m not leaving."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Tim Commerford on Future User's Message: "We Should Be Focused on Much More Impo


Credit: Dana KleinOn Tuesday, Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave bassist Tim Commerford revealed himself as the man behind the band Future User. In previous Future User videos, Commerford wore a mask and headphones to conceal his identity, but for the band's latest video, "Mountain Lion," he removed his mask to reveal his face and distinctive tattoos."For me, the mask is important because I didn't want to use either of my previous bands to help this band," Commerford tells ABC News Radio. "I wanted to launch this band as a regular person in today's world and see how it works, and I was excited about that."That mask then evolved into a character of its own, which Commerford and his Future User band mate, Jordan Tarlow, felt represented the ideology of the band. The masked character was dubbed S.W.I.M., a popular Internet acronym that stands for "Someone Who Isn't Me."The presence of S.W.I.M. adds to the political nature of the videos, which tackle everything from waterboarding to genetically-altered food. The new track "Mountain Lion" sets its sight on the controversy around performance enhancing drugs, or PEDs, in sports which Commerford feels has been overblown in effort to distract people from real problems."We as Americans and as earthlings should be focused on much more important issues," he says. "If our presidents decide to divert our attention with PEDs, we should realize that there probably is something really bad happening that they're doing while we're focused on Lance Armstrong or Barry Bonds."Lance Armstrong, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after he admitted to blood doping, appears in a cameo role in the "Mountain Lion" video. In fact, Commerford emulates the infamous cyclist by actually blood doping in the video himself"I actually blood doped in the video -- it was my second attempt at blood doping -- and I just wanted it to be real," he tells ABC News Radio. "My first attempt I did in Jordan's studio and didn't do it right, and ended up squirting blood all over his mixing console, he had to spend tons of money to have in cleaned. Then I got it right for the video."Future User's debut album, #SteroidsorHeroin, will be released on February 24. The record will be seven songs long, including "Mountain Lion," as well as the other three tracks already released: "Clockwork," "Supernatural" and "Medication Nation." All four of these tracks are accompanied by equally politically charged videos, and Commerford says that the three songs yet to be released might get videos, too."We do have a couple other video ideas, and we have seven tracks that are going to go on this record, and with two more ideas, so maybe we will get every song," he says. "I think that would be neat. Because I really feel like we're making sort of a rock opera for 2015."Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Dave Grohl Does Not Appear in First Cut of "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck"


Image Courtesy of The End of Music, LLC/HBOThe first fully authorized Kurt Cobain documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, made its premiere this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, but one notable person was absent from the film -- Dave Grohl.Director Brett Morgen explained that while he did interview the former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman for the film, he did not have time to include the footage in the documentary prior to its Sundance premiere."We had a locked print and trying to re-edit a film with a new interview in 10 days is kind of difficult," Morgen tells Billboard.  "This is the picture I wanted -- I didn't want there to be a lot of people in the film."Morgen does say that he hopes to include the Grohl interview in another version of the film.  Perhaps we will see it when Montage of Heck airs on HBO later this year.Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck premiered at Sundance on Saturday, January 24.  At the opening, Cobain's daughter -- and the film's executive producer -- Frances Bean Cobain shared a hug with her mother, Courtney Love, marking the pair's first public appearance together in several years.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Tom DeLonge Says He Didn't Quit Blink-182


Estevan Oriol/DGCHold off on those reports that Tom DeLonge has left Blink-182.In a post on his Facebook page Monday afternoon, the guitarist insisted that he didn't quit the band. He wrote, "I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in... Apparently those releases were 'sanctioned' from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ....."His rep released a similar statement in which DeLonge is quoted as saying, "The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year. I love Blink-182 and I’m not leaving.”Earlier in the day, a publicist for Blink-182 reportedly put out a statement in which DeLonge's bandmates, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, claimed DeLonge "didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." The statement was reported on by multiple outlets.Blink-182 has lined up a replacement for DeLonge for their just-announced headlining set at the Musink Tattoo & Music Festival in Los Angeles on March 22: Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba.Hoppus and Barker have yet to publicly comment on DeLonge's statements.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Perry Farrell Dishes with Mario Batali in New Web Series


Image Courtesy of Kyle Dean ReinfordAs the frontman of Jane's Addiction and the creator of Lollapalooza, Perry Farrell knows a thing or two about the creative process. So it makes sense that Farrell would appear on Feedback Kitchen, a new web series from celebrity chef -- and host of ABC's The Chew -- Mario Batali that covers that very topic. The series, which debuts on Monday, January 26, on DailyMotion, finds Batali and a musician discussing the creative process before Batali cooks up a special meal inspired by his guest."Perry sees the world through such a unique and fascinating lens that is full of wonder and curiosity," Batali tells Rolling Stone. "He is the perfect conversationalist and very appreciative of good food and wine."In anticipation of the premiere, DailyMotion released a clip of Farrell's night of food and conversation on Feedback Kitchen."The creative process always starts when I'm enjoying myself," Farrell tells Batali in the video. "Like, I'm always partying when I start writing songs for the most part, poetry, everything flows as the wine flows."Other episodes of Feedback Kitchen will include Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Patti Smith and U2 guitarist The Edge. All episodes will be released on January 26.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Fall Out Boy Debates: "American Beauty" or "American Psycho"?


Credit: Pamela LittkyFall Out Boy's new album, American Beauty/American Psycho, is chock full of film references. There's the track "Uma Thurman," which pays tribute to the Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction actress, "The Kids Aren't Alright," which is a nod to the famous The Who rockumentary, The Kids Are Alright, and "Jet Pack Blues," which takes its inspiration from the film Pacific Rim.Of course, there's also the album's title, which is a reference to the films American Beauty, starring Kevin Spacey, and American Psycho, starring Christian Bale. So in the eyes of Fall Out Boy, which is the better film: American Beauty or American Psycho?"I don't think there's a better film, I think that it's like apples and oranges -- they're both really, really good," FOB guitarist Joe Trohman tells ABC News Radio. "[American Beauty] was written to be a film and [American Psycho] was an adaptation -- it was a great adaptation. I love both of those movies genuinely, and they have great imagery and great themes, and they're dark and weird and sexy."Pete Wentz was similarly torn, but he did give one film the edge over the other."The true snob in me wants to say American Psycho, I think Christian Bale is awesome in it," he says. "But the one that I've watched more is American Beauty.""I think the use of the color red is just kind of insane, and Kevin Spacy's character...that's when I thought of that guy as an actor," Wentz continues. "When I saw [American Beauty], I was like, 'Wow, he really nailed this bizarre, obsessive character.'" Either way, both films are represented on American Beauty/American Psycho, which is out now. You can catch Fall Out Boy on tour in support of the new album on the Boyz of Zummer tour with hip-hop artist Wiz Khalifa. The tour begins July 10 in Camden, New Jersey and wraps up August 10 in Los Angeles.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
