Rise Against's Confronting New Video

'I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore' is their heavy new song with a full-on video clip.

Rise Against - I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore Video: Rise Against Vevo

The new video by American punk-rockers Rise Against opens with two young kids sitting on a porch in 'South Side, Chicago'.

"Some people be shooting, and one man just get out a car and...'boom, boom', we've seen shootings about three or four times," says a young girl.

The rest of the clip for "I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore" splices vision of the band and some pretty full-on facts and clips of violence, shootings and other disasters.

The band is known for their activism supporting causes like Amnesty International.

The new clip comes off the back of their 7th LP, The Black Market which was released on July 15th.

It's not for the faint hearted but it is a bloody good clip.

Warning: Video contains graphic footage that might offend some viewers.

Billy Suprisingly Sane Rant

After accepting an award The Smashing Pumpkins frontman provides some sane advice for artists.

It's always a bit of a gamble when awarding Billy Corgan an award...is he going to go off on some crazy Corgan rant?!

At the Alternative Press Music Awards, Corgan was given the Vanguard Award, and did go off on a tagent, but also made some pretty sane points about the current state of rock music.

He started out in typical Corgan-esque cryptic style, "The kids rule, the kids always rule, the kids win and they should. I'm no legend, your favourite song is legend, your favourite band is legend, your favourite concert is legend, that's what makes it work."

But then expressed some interesting views on current music, "Every generation deserves its dreams, its bands, its voices and I'm glad to see those bands here tonight, it's awesome."

"[Talking about Joan Jett] Incredilbe artist, incredible career and yes it's a career, its called a career, it's ok. It's ok to sell things, it's ok to sell t-shirts, nobody gets hurt."

He also had some advice for new bands, "There's two paths you take when you first put on that guitar or sing that song and that's 'do I want to please the audience or do I want to push this audience's buttons' and in 'alternative music'...you have to really yell to push those buttons."

And his closing statement...back to classic Corgan...

"...I'm recieveing this in humility because I'm willing to push your buttons, because I'm willing to go tell you to go f*ck yourself. I didn't start a band to be anybodys b*tch, I started a band to kick your f*cking head in."

Slash is back in touring full-swing, currently on the road with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators and heading into a summer tour with Aerosmith.

His massive roster of dates is all ahead of his 'World on Fire' album, due out on September 15th. The album is his follow-up to 2012's 'Apocalyptic Love' and his third solo LP.

In a recent interview with Loudwire.com, Slash gave some awesome insights into the new album.

When asked what the most under-the-radar or favourite track on the album may be Slash explaind, "I don’t want to put any thoughts in people’s heads. I think it’s a real diverse record. I think it’s got a lot of gems on it. But there’s a song that a lot of people who have heard the record really like that surprised me called ‘The Dissident.’ It’s one of those songs that’s politically orientated lyrically. It’s got a different feel and for some reason, people are calling it really catchy. So that’s interesting, we’ll see what happens with that."

You know him as the drummer of AC/DC, his name is Phil Rudd and he has a new solo album coming out called Head Job, which will be out on August 29.

Triple M's Lee Simon went one-on-one with the great man from Phil's new home in New Zealand to find out what he's been working on privately and he found the drummer firing on all cylinders and absolutely pulling no punches on the music biz. 

Topics on the table included who he thinks is the best drummer that ever lived, his thoughts on wildman Keith Moon ("he's a moron"), Ginger Baker and Deep Purple's Ian Paice and, of course, where the AC/DC album/tour is at. Listen to the full interview below.

At the time we'd heard just the one song, the single "Repo Man", and Phil gave us this warning: "Trust me. It's f***in good!"," he exclaimed. Scroll to the bottom of the page to listen to the single.

Young Girls Slay Slayer

Audrey & Kate cover Slayer's 'War Ensemble' and absolutely kill it (in the best way possible).

It looks like kids from a younger and younger age are getting into heavy metal.

We would've expected sisters Kate & Audrey to be into Mily Cyrus but there's always exceptions to the rule.

Playing a game called Rocksmith, the girls chose War Ensemble by Slayer and as you can see they nail it with Audrey smashing the riffs and solo's and Kate belting out Tom Araya's vocals in a very Slayer-esque style.

Metallica Blooper Reel

Earlier On Triple M

There are some things that just look out of place, like Metallica working in an office for example.

To be exact Metallica are actually looking for work in this new 'This Is Sports Center' commercial for ESPN.

The idea for the ad is that Metallica are looking for something to do after Mariano Rivera's retirement from baseball because Rivera would use 'Enter Sandman' as his walk in music from the bullpen.

Phil Jamieson On The White Album And Top 500

Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson popped into the studio to have a chat about his new White Album Concert and his pick for the countdown number 1.



This morning we got a visit from Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson.

Jamo's currently on the road with Tim Rogers, Chris Cheney and Josh Pyke for their 'White Album' Concert. "We are having an absolute ball being on the road with those four singers, can you imagine? My goodness my hotel minibar bill is astronomical."

We caught up with him about the tour, his predictions for the Top 500 Countdown Number One song and terrbile singers. And then Gus tried to impress him with his rock knowledge.

"Hey Jamo, this Top 500 is coming to Number One today, it's going to be a Foo Fighters that's going to be number one."

"Which one mate? Chemical Heart?"asked MG

"Yes, Chemical Heart" responded Gus.

"That's how much he knows about rock, that was a Grinspoon song."

Phil also gave us his predictions for the Number One for Triple M's All Time Top 500 Countdown.

"What do you think number one will be?" Asked MG.

"Look, I think either AC/DC or the Foo Fighters. AC/DC is pretty classic for me Back In Black or something like that," responed Phil.

Barnesy Joins The Living End

Jimmy Barnes and The Living End's Chris Cheney spin some yarns. Listen below

Photo: Liberation Music Australia

Jimmy Barnes and The Living End's Chris Cheney came into the studio to talk about their new project, which celebrates 30 years of Jimmy Barnes as a solo artist.

Chris said they wanted to pick the right song because there are so many iconic songs with Jimmy.

"We've done a couple of tracks and "Lay Down Your Guns" was the first one that popped into our heads because I love the tune," Said Chris, on Triple M.

"I didn't want to do anything like "Working Class Man" because we wanted to do something we could do justice too," joked Chris.

Listen to the full audio below, and as always Barnesy's got a great music yarn at the end.

Barnesy & Chris Cheney On Triple M

 

"Lay Down Your Guns"

Video: Liberation Music Australia

Jimmy Barnes has teamed up with some of the biggest names in music for his new 30/30 Anniversary album.

Jimmy collaborated with the likes of Bernard Fanning, Keith Urban and John Farnham to revisit some of his most popular songs.

"I wanted to do something special for the 30th anniversary," Jimmy explains.

"There was talk of a tribute album, but that idea would have taken me out of the picture. So then I thought of a better idea - I'll get all my favourite acts and sing with them!"

The first single is a blistering version of 'Lay Down Your Guns', featuring The Living End.

"We got into the studio and within four bars of playing the song I knew it was the right marriage of song and artist," Jimmy says.

"It was a rollercoaster from there - I just got on and enjoyed the ride. It was fantastic."

Jimmy's 30/30 Anniversary album is out on the 29th August through Liberation.

You know him as the drummer of AC/DC, his name is Phil Rudd and he has a new solo album coming out called Head Job, which will be out on August 29.

Triple M Sydney on 104.9 FM will be premiering the track this Friday. Listen from 3pm.

Triple M's Becko caught up with the man from his new home in New Zealand to find out what he's been working on privately with this new album because this has come out of the blue.

At the time we'd heard just the one song, the single "Repo Man", and Phil gave us this warning: "Well standby because most of the stuff on the album is better. I hope everyone thinks this is a great album from start to finish because that's the idea," he said.

"We didn't put anything on there that we didn't like. There's no filler."

From the rollicking first single “Repo Man” to the rocking title track “Head Job”, from the upbeat dirgy groove of “Bad Move” to the relationship-driven “Crazy” Rudd has delivered a very personal album “about the s*** that goes on.
