You can see pro-shot footage of Bach, Sorum, and Clarke performing a cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience” during the concert below.

Rush have shared pro-shot footage of themselves performing “Working Man” with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith during their September 27 set at the Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) tribute show in Los Angeles, CA. You can check that out below. The band commented:
“For the first time since August 1st, 2015 we returned to the stage at the LA Forum, scene of the very last performance with our lost brother Neil. This time it was for the second Taylor Hawkins Tribute and sitting behind the throne were 3 wonderful human beings, who also happen to be spectacular drummers.. Dave Grohl, Chad Smith and Danny Carey…. Talk about being spoiled… but the best, yet bittersweet part of this whole deal is that no one would have loved witnessing that more Taylor himself. Rest In Peace Hawk, as we keep Alison, Shane, Annabelle and Everleigh Hawkins along with the entire Foos Family in our thoughts.”
Charlotte Sands has premiered a new video for her latest single “Tantrum.” You can check that out below:
Sands said the following about the song:
“‘Tantrum’ is so special to me because since the first time I played it live, people immediately latched onto it and have been fighting for its release ever since. This song not only represents experiences of anxiety, panic, and rebellion throughout my life and career but also the journey and relationship between me and the people who have made my career possible. I’ve been playing it live for over a year now and I’m thankful for the people who have pushed me out of my comfort zone to release a song that without them would still be sitting in a folder somewhere on my phone. I am overwhelmed with excitement for this song to finally be out in the world, it’s been a year in the making (almost to the exact day) and I can’t wait to finally be able to throw a tantrum together.”
She also added the following about the video:
“It only felt right to make the video feel like a celebration of the shows and the people that have supported this song for so long. We made this video over the course of a few days while on tour and wanted it to feel like the people watching it were there with us, in the audience, or running through the streets of whichever city we happened to be in that night. Overall I wanted it to feel fun, and I wanted it to feel like finally letting go of the emotions that we are so often taught to bury down and hide. This video and this song are a rebellion against society’s expectations for us to “keep calm and carry on” instead of expressing ourselves honestly and openly without judgement.”
Therion have premiered a new video for their new song “Marijin Min Nar.” This track is from the band’s new album “Leviathan II,” which will be released on October 28.
Guitarist Christofer Johnsson commented:
“When we did the songwriting for the Leviathan trilogy, it was basically me and Thomas Vikström that wrote everything. Nalle came up with one song and Christian Vidal came up with one too. But what they lacked in quantity, they made up with quality, as they both delivered a song that we thought was a good choice for a single.
Singles are usually the most commercial songs on an album, as the purpose of a single is not just to tease the fans, but also to throw out a hook to the general public and see if you catch some new listeners. ‘Marijin Min Nar’ is different in that regard, as it is not one of the more commercial songs. But instead, it is a ”regular” song that both ourselves, people at Nuclear Blast, and people we know who heard the album all found to be one of the most likable songs on the album. So we thought we’d have a go with this one as a single.”
Alice Cooper has shared a new video for “Under My Wheels” from his new live album/film “Live From The Astroturf, Alice Cooper.” The effort, which was released today (September 30), features the October 2015 show that Cooper played with the surviving members of his original band, Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith. That set took place at Good Records in Dallas, TX.
Nandi Bushell has premiered a new video for her new song “The Shadows.” This track will appear on the musical prodigy’s upcoming EP “Into The Abyss.”
“Early in 2022 my Dad fell into a depression as his autoimmune disease worsened. It was a difficult time for our family. I wanted to help cheer my Dad up by writing a song for him. He would describe his feelings to me and I would put them into lyrics letting him know, I would be there for him.
My Dad is now doing much better, he is on medication that is helping with his autoimmune disease and has recovered from his depression.
