The Black Keys are still on the road supporting their last album, ‘El Camino,’ but that hasn’t stopped the duo from beginning to throw around some ideas that could turn up on a follow-up to the 2011 full-length release. In fact, frontman Dan Auerbach and drummer Pat Carney already convened in their adopted hometown of Nashville to begin working on the disc.
The Foo Fighters treated about 1,000 lucky fans attending a Rock the Vote concert at the Fillmore in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday (Sept. 5) to what Billboard reports is believed to be the band’s longest concert ever — a three-and-a-half hour, 35-song, career-spanning set. ”Tonight we play as long as we want and as much as we want,” frontman Dave Grohl told the intimate crowd — and apparently, they wanted lots of both.
With 19 days standing between your ears and the first album from Green Day‘s forthcoming ’¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tre!’ trilogy, the band has debuted another track from the disc.

Muse have unleashed a monster new video for ‘Madness,’ the second single from their forthcoming ‘The 2nd Law’ album and first to get video treatment. The clip follows a statuesque femme fatale through the London Underground as riots break out around her.
Has Kurt Cobain been reincarnated in the body of a Russian subway musician? With his dark hair and brown eyes, Nikolay Petrovskiy looks little like the late Nirvana frontman, but he sings selections from the Nirvana songbook with a voice so eerily reminiscent of Kurt’s that it sounds as if he’s summoning Cobain’s spirit. Close your eyes and listen closely!
The National and Chris Cornell hit the stage at a campaign rally for Barack Obama Saturday afternoon at Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa, each turning in a brief performance before the president spoke to the estimated crowd of 10,000 supporters, reports the Times-Delphic.
– Nearly two decades after Nirvana brought the Vaselines to a wider audience by covering ‘Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam’ on ‘MTV Unplugged,’ the Vaselines brought ex-Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic onstage to perform the tune — on accordian, no less — during their Monday set at the Bumbershoot festival.

The Black Keys originally planned to have some sort of narrative arc underpinning their video for ‘Little Black Submarines,’ the fourth single off their ‘El Camino’ album, but they ultimately decided to go with a live clip. “We all just sort of kind of mutually agreed that it should probably just be the performance and not any of the other extra stuff,” singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach told Rolling Stone of the Danny Clinch-directed video, which was filmed in front of a small group of fans at a dive bar in their adopted hometown of Nashville called Springwater Supper Club.
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been discharged from the Hospital Maggiore in Bologna, Italy, after being rushed there Sunday to treat a mystery ailment that forced the cancellation of a Green Day concert in the city, reports W.E.E.N.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have spent the better part of 2012 rocking arenas and stadiums as they continue to tour behind last year’s ‘I’m With You’ album, but they’ll close out the year in a much more intimate setting. As MTV.com reports, the band has lined up a New Year’s Eve gig at the Chelsea Ballroom at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Nashville has long been considered the country music mecca for housing landmarks such as Music Row, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, and recently Music City has gained prominence as a hotbed for indie rock thanks to such artists as Jack White and the Black Keys, who have both relocated there in the last few years.
