Chevelle Announces Release Date for New Album and New Song, ‘Face to the Floor’ [VIDEO]
Back in the day, the release of a concert album used to be a sure sign that a band was not going to be putting out a new studio effort anytime soon. Chevelle fans can rest easy, however.

Disturbed Covers Judas Priest and Faith No More on Rarities Album ‘The Lost Children’
This fall is going to be a memorable one for Disturbed, particularly singer David Draiman.

Jane’s Addiction Unveils Cartoonish Cover Art for ‘The Great Escape Artist’
With Jane’s Addiction changing the release date for ‘The Great Escape Artist’ more than once, it’s understandable if some of the band’s fans had serious doubts that the album would ever see the light of day.
