– Kasabian are eyeing Jack White for what would be their first-ever collaborative recording with a fellow rocker. “I respect Jack, and in some way, shape or form we’d love to kick around in the studio with him,” guitarist Serge Pizzorno says of the potential pairing, which we already can’t wait to hear.
Chris Cornell will not be appearing at rapper Jay-Z‘s first-ever Made in America festival in Philadelphia this weekend after all. The Soundgarden singer was on the initial line-up that Jay-Z announced for the gathering back in May, with Cornell slated to appear alongside fellow performers like Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Dirty Projectors, Passion Pit, Santigold, Miike Snow and more. But without warning or any reason cited, Cornell’s name was abruptly pulled from the final schedule on Tuesday.
The bodies of two women slain in Russia have been found underneath a note calling for the release of the jailed members of Pussy Riot, according to authorities. Although investigators into the double homicide caution that the killer may have been just trying to distract police by bringing up the name of the jailed punk band, other Russian media have played up the possible connection between Pussy Riot supporters and the crime.
The Silversun Pickups recently asked Mitt Ronmey to stop playing their tune ‘Panic Switch’ during campaign events, but it doesn’t seem like the Killers have taken such a hard-line stance against the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee. Last week, Romney named the Las Vegas rockers when asked to list his favorite bands – ”The Killers are one group I enjoy,” he told Parade magazine — and Killers bassist Mark Stoermer, for one, is more than happy to have him as a fan.
Perhaps you remember the groundbreaking video for Radiohead‘s ‘House of Cards,’ the James Frost-directed clip that used remote optical technology instead of actual video cameras to create a matrix image of singer Thom Yorke? Frost doesn’t take such a high-tech route on the new video for Dave Matthews Band‘s ‘Mercy,’ but it’s still visually compelling, featuring a patchwork collage of uplifting and heartwarming footage that was submitted by fans last month to expound on the universal message of love. In other words, you may just get goosebumps watching it.
The Killers are reportedly working with critically acclaimed German filmmaker Werner Herzog on a concert webcast set to be shot in New York City on Sept. 18, the same day that the band’s new ‘Battle Born’ album hits stores.

The three members of the Russian feminist punk collective Pussy Riot who earlier this month were convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in prison after staging a “punk prayer” in protest of President Vladimir Putin have officially filed an appeal.

Dave Grohl told the massive crowd watching his Foo Fighters perform at the Reading festival on Sunday night (Aug. 26) in Reading, England that the concert would be the band’s last show for a long time — directly contradicting the Foo Fighters’ itinerary, which has four more U.S. festival appearances still scheduled for 2012.
A 23-year-old filmmaker who was born profoundly deaf and only recently gained the ability to hear is discovering the joys of music through an eclectic assortment of bands, ranging from alt-rock acts like Radiohead and Devo to classic rockers like Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones to straight up orchestral classic like Beethoven and Mozart. ”Radiohead is already one of my top five favorite living bands,” he tells Yahoo! News.
