Tom Delonge responds to Blink-182 bandmates: 'This makes me really sad'

C. Thomas Howell stars in the dramatic video for Lotus Crush's 'Hearts and Minds' -- exclusive

Before he was runner-up on the third season of The Voice, Scottish vocalist Terry McDermott played in a group called Lotus Crush with two former members of multiplatinum grunge band Candlebox. Recently they got the band back together, and in the spring they’ll put out their second LP, Rabbit Hole. In the lead-up to its release, the group recruited The Outsiders star C. Thomas Howell for the video for the album’s lead single “Hearts and Minds,” which takes the form of a surprisingly intense military mini-drama.

“Hearts and Minds” is available now on iTunes, and you can pre-order Rabbit Hole here.


Made Violent made a gloriously blown-out video for 'Two Tone Hair' -- exclusive

Made Violent hail from Buffalo, New York—but the band’s snotty snarl and bubblegum hooks are straight London, England. Their razor-sharp new single “Two Tone Hair” should appeal to fans of the Supergrass end of the Britpop spectrum, or really anyone who likes hearing a bunch of young people enthusiastically beating the crap out of super catchy pop songs.

The song will appear, alongside the breakout track “Wasted Days,” on their five-song self-titled debut EP dropping Feb. 24 on Startime International/Columbia.


Elijah Wood's Wooden Wisdom project proves he's more than just a celebrity DJ

Anyone who’s spent enough time at clubs or industry parties is familiar with the phenomenon of the celebrity DJ, where famous people are paid a lot of money to basically play songs off their phone and pose for Instagram photos. Elijah Wood is certainly a celebrity, but with his project Wooden Wisdom, a partnership with former indie label guy Zach Cowie (a.k.a. Turquoise Wisdom), he proves he’s a legit disc jockey—they spin vinyl, navigate a broad range of sounds from acid rock to African funk, and can actually get a crowd energized for reasons other than sharing a room with a famous person.

Recently Wood and Cowie took their records on the road for a full-on Wooden Wisdom tour. Before their gig at Brooklyn Bowl, they sat down with EW to talk about their vinyl fetishes and what’s so great about the possibility of totally screwing up a set.


Retro soul group The Suffers daydream away their 'Make Some Room' video -- exclusive

With its buttery horn arrangements, funky guitar licks, and lead singer Kam Franklin’s bubbly vocals, “Make Some Room,” the catchy new single from 10-piece Houston soul revival group The Suffers, sounds like it stepped straight out of the ’70s soul-pop movement that produced Honey Cone. The video, directed by Joseph Graham, follows the song’s quirky romantic sensibility by stepping inside Franklin’s crushed-out daydreams about several different guys who maybe aren’t the best choices for growing old with.


Stone Jack Jones unveils his Patty Griffin-assisted single 'Shine' -- exclusive

Stone Jack Jones has had several close brushes with death, which might explain why his spare, folk-inflected country songs sound so intensely haunted. On Mar. 17, the Western Vinyl label will release his excellent second LP, Love & Torture, featuring contributions from members of alt-country favorites Lambchop and legendary country singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, who adds vocals to the spectral standout track “Shine.”


Sia releases 'Salted Wound' from 'Fifty Shades of Grey' soundtrack


So far, the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack is shaping up to be as moody as Mr. Grey himself. Following Ellie Goulding’s music video release for “Love Me Like You Do,” as well as The Weeknd’s “Earned It,” Sia has released her addition to the soundtrack: an emotional ballad titled “Salted Wound.”

With lyrics like “don’t break,” “you’ll pull through it,” and “She will see that you’re a good man,” it seems “Salted Wound” is written for the lesser-seen side of Christian Grey—the side that just wants to be loved.

Blink-182 addresses Tom DeLonge rumors: 'The truth is out'

Two-thirds of Blink-182 issued a statement Monday announcing their split from fellow founding member Tom DeLonge, but DeLonge responded by issuing his own statement denying those claims—and now, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have responded to that statement in a damning interview with Rolling Stone.

“[DeLonge’s] actions speak louder than whatever he feels compelled to write on an Instagram post,” Hoppus said. “We’ve been trying to record an album for the better part of two years and we had agreed to go in to record and my guess is that Tom was embarrassed because he doesn’t want to do Blink.” READ FULL STORY

Chris Brown postpones tour to complete community service

Chris Brown’s Between the Sheets Tour has been postponed because he has to finish up some court-mandated community service, the singer wrote on his Instagram Monday evening.

“The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service,” Brown wrote. “I promise that I am busting my ass doing it everyday until it’s complete. This is the most disappointing news I’ve gotten in a while.” READ FULL STORY
