Earlier, AC/DC's management confirmed that Malcolm Young had left the band, due to a serious illness.

"Malcolm is suffering from dementia and the family thanks you for respecting their privacy," Malcolm's family told New York's People magazine.

While a statement on the band's official website read: "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's condition, he will not be returning to the band."

The news comes off the back of AC/DC announcing their brand new album Rock or Bust is out on December 2. And a world tour in support of the album is to follow.

Malcom Young's nephew Stevie Young (pictured above) played on the album and will tour with the band in Malcolm's place.

Bush New Album

Listen to the Grunge veterans brand new album in full

In a Triple M Music Jury Exclusive, Bush and Gavin Rossdale have released a brand new album. It's called Man On The Run and it's out October 24. Listen to the album stream below.

This will be the band's 6th studio album. The first single is called "The Only Way Out", and we think it's a killer track featuring all the hallmarks of a Bush song.

The album was recorded at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (who's done stuff with Foo Fighters and Alice In Chains to name a few ).

It's their first album since 2011's The Sea Of Memories and 20 years since their mega-selling debut album Sixteen Stone, which contained some little songs like "Comedown", "Glycerine" and "Everything Zen"!

Listen To Bush's New Album

 

Track listing

1. Just Like My Other Sins
2. Man On The Run
3. The Only Way Out
4. The Gift

Bono Apologises For U2's Album Release Onto iTunes

The U2 frontman has apologised for their Apple launch stunt.

U2 frontman Bono has apologised to iTunes customers who were forced to download their new album Songs of Innocence.

The Irishman seems to have had some regrets after the reception it received. During an interview with fans on the band’s Facebook page, Bono was asked about the album’s release: “Can you please never release an album on iTunes that automatically downloads to people’s playlists ever again? It’s really rude.”

Bono responded, honestly and frankly: "Oops … I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea … might have gotten carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that thing.

"A drop of megalomania, a touch of generosity, a dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years might not be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess, we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it."

Watch the full Q and A below:

Bluejuice Frontman Jake Stone Calls Out Punters

It's their final tour and they're not going to put up with annoying fans.

Despite sadly announcing their 'RETROSPECTABLE: The Farewell Tour' earlier in the year, Bluejuice shows still have no shortage of action, humour and sometimes, aggression.

It looks like the heavy partying Bluejuice fans are still at it and frontman Jake Stone is still in top form too with some quality banter at a recent Melbourne show.

Two punters were more interested in having an argument than watching the show, obviously that wasn't going to fly with the Bluejuice boys on their finale tour so Stone pulled them up on their behaviour.

After he saw them arguing, he called them out by saying, “Just come to some kind of meathead conclusion about it, okay? It’s not that hard.” And then continued when they wouldn't stop. Watch the full video below.

Violent Soho Guitarist Refused Flight

He wasn't allowed to fly because he had this printed on his shirt.

Violent Soho are a band absolutely making waves at the moment. Going from strength to strength especially with the release of their third LP Hungry Ghost which peaked at No 6. on the ARIA charts.

Well, they obviously do a lot of flying and from all reports are well behaved young lads (until showtime), however, frontman James Tidswell was refused entry to a Virgin plane on Wednesday because of an offensive t-shirt.

The shirt is actually the title of a 1990 Painters & Dockers single "Eat, Sh*t, Die". See the photo (and song) below.

I wasn't allowed to board the plan wearing my Painters and Dockers shirt. They said I posed a threat.

Despite no-one taking personal offence to the t-shirt Virgin staff cited 'terrorism laws' to deny Tidswell onto the flight.

Tidswell was actually on his way from Brisbane to Melbourne for the Independent Music Awards where they went on to win Best Album and Best Hard Rock, Heavy, or Punk Album.

He was finally allowed onto the flight after turning his shirt inside out.

Looks like Virgin don't know anything about Australian music.

Premiering on UK radio on last night, Pink Floyd's new track "Louder Than Words" is the first taste of new music we've heard since 1994's The Division Bell.

As we announced earlier in the year, the track comes off of The Endless River, an album that was born out of those Division Bell sessions. We've now heard from David Gilmour that this will be the bands last album.

"It's a shame, but this is the end," Gilmour told BBC 6 Music last night.

The album will be mostly instrumental however, "Louder Than Words" contains lyrics written by Gilmour's wife Polly Samson. Another track, "Talkin Hawkin" also features a cameo by Stephen Hawking (which they also did on The Division Bell).

Professional Fist Pumper Wanted

This might just be the easiest job in the music business.

So you want to be a rockstar but can't play an instrument to save your life. Well next best option is working WITH musicians, but who wants to be a roadie?!

Well there is another option. An advertisement posted on job website SEEK is looking for a professional 'Fist Pumper'.


Well it looks like this is a sneaky little ad campaign for a Converse free gig with The Vines. Pretty smart use of marketing and who knows, maybe if you're good enough they'll take you on tour!

The Vines play a free gig with Bloods in Melbourne on October 22nd.
