They already released the first single, "My God Is The Sun," and now they've given us another... well half of it at least. A 30-second teaser for QOTSA track "I Appear Missing" aired on Adult Swim last night (5/5), and now the band have released a three-minute video for the track, but the album version is reportedly a six-minute song. You can watch the three-minute video below.

Queens of the Stone Age played a new song called "My God Is The Sun" at Lollapalooza Brazil last night. Check out that performance below (via Consequence of Sound).

Rick Springfield / John Fogerty / Rick Nielson, Taylor Hawkins, Krist Novoselic
As discussed, Dave Grohl made his directorial debut with his new documentary, Sound City, which tells the story of the LA recording studio of the same name, and he brought his star-studded Sound City Players to NYC for show at Hammerstein Ballroom last night. The lineup included Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Alain Johannes, and Chris Goss, with backing from Dave Grohl himself, along with Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Krist Novoselic, Chris Shiflett, and Pat Smear.
In addition to playing original tunes that the members wrote for Sound City, the show included mini-sets from the people involved. It opened with a set from Alain Johannes, who played "Hangin' Tree" by Queens of the Stone Age, which he co-wrote, and also played some tracks from his band Eleven. Then Masters of Reality head Chris Goss brought out RATM's Brad Wilk for a set of Masters of Reality songs. Fear's Lee Ving did an original Sound City song followed by all Fear cuts. Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick did his set with Nirvana's Krist Novaselic, and the pair did all Cheap Trick songs and his cover of Fats Domino's "Ain't That A Shame". Then Rick Springfield was up, followed by John Fogerty.
Steve Nicks ended the show, doing original Sound City track, and combining that with Fleetwood Mac favorites "Dreams," "Landslide," and "Gold Dust Woman," plus here solo song, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," for which Dave Grohl came out and took over Tom Petty's role in the song. The sets were all backed by Foo Fighters members, and in between performances, clips of the film were played on stage. The
entire setlist (incomplete setlist, can anyone help fix it?) and more pictures from the show are below (though unfortunately, photographers were not allowed to shoot the entire show, and there are no pictures of Stevie Nicks & Dave Grohl).
Dave Grohl was also on The Colbert Report last night, where he discussed the Sound City documentary with Stephen Colbert. A video of that is below as well.

An avalanche of new tracks today, including the new title track from the forthcoming "Harmonslaught" 7" by Torche, a new Ghost track (HERE), a new Suffocation track from their forthcoming LP, and last but not least a new Portal track. The latter will appear on the band's forthcmong new LP (!) Vexovoid, due via Profound Lore on Feb 19, 2013. Check out all of those new tracks below.
All streams and a listing of all Evillive-approved shows for the next two weeks (and last two of 2012) year are below.
Nick Oliveri w/ Kyuss Lives! at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by Greg Cristman)
According to a Facebook post on Nick Oliveri's band Mondo Generator's page, Nick, who last year dealt with some legal trouble but is back in Kyuss, "recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song." Nick was with QOTSA on their classic albums, Rated R and Songs for the Deaf. Dave Grohl, who recorded drums on Songs for the Deaf, is back on board for this album too and Trent Reznor is also doing some work on it. Here's to hoping they get Mark Lanegan on board for a full SFTD reunion.
Trent Reznor, meanwhile, has been keeping busy with his How to destroy angels_ project, who recently released their An omen_ EP and are planning a full length follow up. He just put out a video for the song "Ice Age" off that EP, which was directed by John Hillcoat (The Road, Lawless). You can watch that video below.
Kyuss Lives at Stubb's, Austin, TX Oct 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Chalk one up in the win column for Kyuss Lives! Well, sorta.
Former Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme and bassist Scott Reeder recently filed a federal lawsuit against their former bandmates John Garcia (vocals) and Brant Bjork (drums) to prohibit the latter duo from continuing to use the Kyuss Lives! moniker for their band.Former Kyuss members pursued the remainder of the gang who have been touring as Kyuss Lives! as of late. No word on if the band will change their name on the advice of the judge.
On Monday, Judge S. James Otero of the United States District Court Central District of California announced his verdict, which weighs somewhat in favor of Garcia and Bjork.
Essentially, Kyuss Lives! can use their name in concert, but not for recordings. "The Court will issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting Defendants from using the Kyuss Mark in any capacity unless the word 'Lives' follows the word 'Kyuss' in equally-prominent lettering," reads the verdict. "The Court will issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting Defendants from using the Kyuss Lives Mark in conjunction with any studio album, live album, or other audio recording. The Motion is denied, however, with respect to Plaintiffs' request that Defendants be enjoined from using the Kyuss Lives Mark in conjunction with concerts and live performances."
But this ruling doesn't fully protect Garcia and Bjork from running into further troubles down the road even if they use the Kyuss Lives! name solely for concerts. "It may be in Defendants' best interest to begin re-branding under a new name," the judge wrote. - [Rolling Stone]

Jake Shears @ Bowery Ballroom - 5/6/2012
Scissor Sisters' new album Magic Hour is out May 29, though you can already get the first single "Only The Horses" at iTunes, where you can get four remixes of the song too. Check a new informercial for the LP starring QOTSA's Josh Homme, below.
Don't ever accuse Scissor Sisters of not keeping it real. Though the band is clearly able to fill substantially larger rooms on multiple nights, the NYC crew, as they always do before a new album, played a small show at Bowery Ballroom on May 6th with Zebra Katz.
The Sisters played 7 new songs... including the first two singles "Only The Horses" and the rap-infused track "Shady Love." The dance party/answering machine message "Let's Have A Kiki" was also played and included a great choreographed routine with Jake and the back-up singers (see photo below). "Keep Your Shoes On" is a dance track that is destined to become a Scissor Sisters classic. "Years of Living Dangerously" is a slower song that the audience was definitely vibing to and "Baby Come Home" has a groove similar to "Laura." ...Sandwiched in between the new songs (all of which made their US live debut), were classic Scissor Sisters songs such as their cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," "Take Your Mama," "Mary," "Invisible Light," "Skin This Cat," "Kiss You Off," "Any Which Way," "Music is the Victim," and "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'." -[Zimbio]Pictures anbd the full setlist from that show are in this post. It all continues, with the informercial video and all tour dates, below...
Them Crooked Vultures at Coachella 2010 (more by Rachel Carr)
Father of two Robert McIndoe, 52, was unable to sleep for three months after going to a rock concert that left him with a permanent ringing in his ear. He was watching supergroup 'Them Crooked Vultures' at Brixton Academy.Super sad. (wear your earplugs!)
In the coming months Mr McIndoe faced an uphill struggle to to get proper treatment for the condition, Southwark Coroner's Court heard.
His wife eventually received a letter of referral to a hospital ear, nose and throat specialist on November 1 last year - the day after he apparently killed himself.
Shirley McIndoe told the hearing that the day after the gig last July, her husband was "cross with himself" for not taking ear plugs.
She said: "When it first happened he wasn't too bothered about it because he thought it would subside, and the friend he had been with also had ringing in his ears that day.
"But it was a constant irritation.
"He didn't get a night of sleep after that until he went to hospital."-[Telegraph]
A former member of the rock band Queens of the Stone Age got into an intense standoff with a S.W.A.T. team at his L.A. home last night ... where cops found a high-powered LOADED rifle.What is it with bass players going off the deep end this week... first from Coheed & Cambria and now Olivieri. No word on if/how the arrest may affect Olivieri's involvement in the forthcoming Kyuss Lives reunion shows (they are scheduled to play overseas this week), but we'll keep you informed. Kyuss Lives is scheduled to play Terminal 5 on 9/23 with The Sword (tickets). Updated tour dates are below.
...Cops were called to the home of 39-year-old Nick Oliveri after a neighbor called 911 to report a "disturbance" between the rocker and his girlfriend.
Sources close to the couple tell us Nick's GF told police the rocker struck her during an argument the day before and she had come back to the home to collect her stuff so she could move out. That's when the two got into another heated argument and Nick locked themselves inside the duplex.
When cops arrived, Oliveri -- who played bass with the Queens for years before parting ways with the group -- refused to allow cops inside the residence and would not let his girlfriend leave.
A S.W.A.T. team was called to the scene -- and a standoff ensued. After two hours, Nick finally agreed to let his GF exit the duplex and two hours after that, he gave himself up without further incident.
When cops searched the home, we're told they found one high powered rifle -- which was FULLY LOADED.
Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence. He has since been released after posting $100,000 bail. -[TMZ]
Oliveri also did time (rimshot!) in The Dwarves who are celebrating 25 years with a dates that include two NYC stops this week: July 15th at Knitting Factory and July 16th at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for both the Knitting Factory date and the Studio date are still available.
Over the past few months, we've been busy jamming, writing and hanging out together - exploring the creative aspect of being Soundgarden. It feels great. We have some cool new songs that we are going to record very soon. Thank you for all of the support!Until we hear that new material, we'll have to either settle for Live on I-5 (a new live album recorded in 1996) or catch Soundgarden on the road this summer! The reunited Seattle band will hit the road for select North American dates with support from Coheed & Cambria on some dates and The Mars Volta on others.
Loudest of Love,
Ben, Chris, Kim and Matt
Coheed & Cambria (who is also scheduled to play a free show at Williamsburg Waterfront) will join Soundgarden at both NYC-area dates, July 8th at Prudential Center in Neark and July 9th at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, NY. Tickets for Prudential Center and Jones beach go on Fan Presale at 9AM and 7AM PDT (aka noon and 10AM EST) respectively, while regular sale for both Prudential Center and Jones Beach kicks off at 10AM on 5/13. They also play Mohegan Sun in CT on July 6th and the Borgata in Atlantic City on July 14th. All dates are listed below.
The Mars Volta play the Atlantic City date, but neither of the NYC-area shows, so maybe they'll announce their own NYC show soon? Omar and Cedric last played NYC together in March.
In related news, Kim Thayil of Soundgarden recently contributed guitar to the new record by A Storm of Light, As The Valley of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade. Check out that track/a recent interview with Josh Graham.
All tour dates, some with Queens of the Stone Age and Meat Puppets too, are listed below...
Rolling Stone announced today that Queens of the Stone Age will headline the magazine's South by Southwest showcase on March 16, kicking off four days of events at La Zona Rosa.Presale tickets for QOTSA's show at Terminal 5 in NYC are already sold out, but general sale begins Friday at noon.

Queens of the Stone Age have announced a March and April tour, but not just any tour, but a tour where they will perform their 1998 self-titled LP in its entirety (and other songs too). The LP is being re-released...

It will be sold exclusively here. It's limited to 1000 copies, all individually numbered, so we all know what that means; sleep on it and you haven't got a hope in Hell of owning a copy, unless you feel okay about forking out some stupid money on eBay."Adding more fuel to the fire that the band will appear at SXSW in mid-March, the tour kicks off on March 18th in New Orleans. It hits Terminal 5 in NYC on March 25th. Tickets go on sale Friday February 18th at noon ($40 advance / $45 day of show). All tour dates below...

Like he did on stage in California in December (they played "Marigold"), Dave Grohl is bringing together the surviving members of Nirvana for the seventh Foo Fighters album, due out April 12. Produced by Butch Vig, who produced Nirvana's breakout album Nevermind, Grohl has chosen to record the entire album in his garage on entirely analog equipment. He has also confirmed that Nirvana's touring guitarist Pat Smear is again a full time member of Foo Fighters and has recorded on every track on the new album. But most importantly, Nirvana bassist Krist Noveselic recorded bass and accordian for the track "I Should Have Known." Butch Vig talked to MTV News about the recording:
"We had Krist Novoselic come in and play bass [on the song], and I'm not exactly sure what the song's about, but to me, it seems there's definitely some references about Kurt Cobain, and it's one of the most primal, raw things the Foo Fighters have ever done, and I think it's one of the best tracks on the record," Vig said. "It's distorted and raw, and Dave, the take on the vocals is like the first take he did at the end of the song. He's just blowing his lungs out. ... We played the record for some people yesterday, and the whole record is great, but that song, God, it's quite an emotional roller-coaster ride when you hear it."The album also features guest vocals from Bob Mould of Husker Du. You can listen to snippets at FooFighers.FM.
The Foo Fighters are also planning a documentary spanning Dave Grohl's career from his time as the drummer of Nirvana through The Foo Fighters' 16 year career. The film also includes in-depth footage regarding the release of the new album. The film will be making its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, and the band is rumored to be performing at SXSW, as are Queens of the Stone Age and the Strokes (all rumors at this point).
In other Dave Grohl related news, on Wednesday, Matador Press tweeted an illustrated letter from a 15-year old Dave Grohl to Seattle band Aerobic Death about a compilation tape in 1984. That letter and all tour dates below...

DOWNLOAD: The Almighty Defenders - Bow Down and Die (MP3)
It's supergroup day on BrooklynVegan. Some of it is catch up news. We have a new MP3 and tour dates from the new Black Keys-related Drummer band, and then there's the signing of Dum Dum Girls whose first live show over the weekend brought together member of four other bands. Jack White's new supergroup The Dead Weather is streaming their new album today, and we finally did a post on the Monsters of Folk album (Bright Eyes+My Morning Jacket+M Ward). Supergroups are not to be confused with side projects which were sort of a theme today too - first with Wolf Parade-related Handsome Furs, and then the Mazzy Star/My Bloody Valentine-related Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions (which I guess could be considered a supergroup too). Next up....
The Almighty Defenders (Black Lips + King Khan + BBQ)
The Almighty Defenders, a meeting of might between Atlanta garage goblins The Black Lips, Berlin-based soul punker King Khan, and Mr. BBQ himself, Mark Sultan. Conceived during the Lips' Berlin exile (after their VBS-documented ejection from India), the band's self-titled debut is a madcap, liquor-drenched revival, a blissfully fucked up realization of one of garage rock's most fitting collaborations. "Bow Down And Die," the "booming, chivalrous third song," is an off kilter, beer-swilling chant-along that borrows just as much from choral church music as it does from skuzzball rock n roll.You can check out that song above. The band's self-titled debut is set to come out September 22nd on Vice. Clips of the group live are below.
No tour dates for the Almighty Defenders yet, but The Black Lips will be at the July 26th Williamsburg Waterfront Pool Party, playing with Health, Grupo Fantasma and Trail of Dead. The Black Lips are actually one of the only artists to play a 'Pool Party' two years in a row. Ironically(?), when they played last year, it was on the same bill as King Khan. Maybe they'll bring him along again, or maybe they should just make an Almighty Defenders show which would be cool.
The Black Lips are also playing a few other festivals this summer, including Pitchfork Fest and Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party. The band was recently featured on the soundtrack of the Gael Garcia Bernal & Diego Luna film Rudo Y Cursi, which came out in May. That disc includes contributions by Devendra Banhart, Juana Molina (who's playing tonight, July 8th, in Central Park) and even Bernal himself. Album art and tracklist for that below.
Bernal is hardly the only actor getting into music these days. Dead Man's Bones, the combo of actors Zach Shields and Ryan Gosling, is set to release a self-titled album, produced by Tim Anderson of I'm A Robot, October 6th on Anti-. Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir, who you can see below, also pitched in vocals. Two videos of the band are below.
You can catch a different kind of supergroup in NYC at the Bowery Ballroom on August 1st. Dangerous, an "All Metal Tribute To Michael Jackson," features members of Tragedy (the "Heavy Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees" who are playing the Beach at Governors Island this summer) and the 2 Skinnee Js. Tickets to that are on sale now.
And if that's not enough...
Members of Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age are working together on a new project...The as-yet-unnamed supergroup unites Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, and lead Foo Fighter (né Nirvana drummer) Dave Grohl. The trio are presently in Los Angeles, recording their debut album.[Guardian UK]John Paul Jones also recently worked with Sonic Youth.
Check out Almighty Defenders videos, album art and tracklist, with Rudo Y Cursi album info and Dead Man's Bones videos, below...
In addition to frontman White, who drums and sings in the band, the supergroup quartet includes vocalist Alison Mosshart of U.K. outfit The Kills; guitarist Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age; and bass player Jack Lawrence, one of White's fellow Raconteurs.Thanks to all who emailed. Video below...
The Dead Weather made their performance debut in Nashville last night in front of an invitation-only crowd of 150 fans, insiders and friends, including Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride and fellow White Striper Meg White.
The 20-minute show took place at the headquarters of the White-founded label Third Man Records, a building designed to serve as a one-stop shop for rockers, housing a record store, photo studio and stage.
"This band is the first project to come out of this new system, which is our new studio in town and this building," White told the crowd before the gig.
The band's debut single, "Hang You From the Heavens," is already available for download on iTunes. Their 11-song debut album, Horehound, will consist of 10 original tracks and a cover of Bob Dylan's "New Pony."
It's set for release on White's Third Man label in June. [E]

According to Wiki, the current touring lineup is front-man Jesse Hughes AKA: The Devil / Boots Electric (guitar, vocals), Dave Catching AKA: Darlin' Dave (guitar) (Queens of the Stone Age contributor/Desert Sessions/etc), Brian O'Connor AKA: Big Hands (bass, vocals), and Joey Castillo AKA: The Sexi Mexi (drums) (Queens of the Stone Age/Mark Lanegan).
