Kid Rock keeps riding that line between Detroit rock and Nashville twang, and on his latest single he's leaning back to that country side. “Tennessee Mountain Top” hits country radio beginning October 2, but the song arrived on digital platforms for sale and streaming today. Check it out in the player below and see what you think - personally, I'm digging it.
I had a chance to catch POWERMAN 5000 live last year at a small club here in Illinois, and let me tell you - they put on just as electrifying a show now as they did nearly two decades ago as "When Worlds Collide" was blowing up the radio. The lineup has evolved, but the magic is still there, and on October 27 the band will unleash their latest album, NEW WAVE. This week brings us the first single and video from the new record, with "Sid Vicious in a Dress" streaming below. Beware there is some NSFW imagery there, particularly a moment with a baseball bat - something I tend to be familiar with. Crank it up!
I often cite that the first record I distinctly recall asking my parents to buy me was Michael Jackson's THRILLER. I still have my well-worn vinyl album from 1982, and while I've played Jackson's works for The Rock Daughters since birth, it's really been over the course of just the past few months that they've really started to enjoy them. Now, with the Halloween season soon to be here, Epic/Legacy Recordings in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of hits inspired by Michael's love for season, available beginning September 29, 2017.
The ONE THOUSAND MILES TOUR featuring Hoobastank, OLDCODEX, Against The Current, [Nagoya, Osaka only], and coldrain [Tokyo only] kicks off later this month in Japan. Presented by H.I.P., tickets for all shows are on-sale now, with full details listed below. I will be in Japan representing The Rock Father™ Magazine and look forward to checking out the tour first hand.
I can't say that I was "a Taylor Swift fan" before - not that I had any issue with her or her music... I just didn't pay much attention to either. That changed last week when the single "Look What You Made Me Do" hit the scene, complete with a lyric video that captured a film noir vibe that was somewhat Hitchcockian in nature. The simplistic, yet dark pop jam created in collaboration with producer Jack Antonoff (who also had a hand in Lorde's recent "Green Light" - another off-center track I loved) now has an official music video - one that looks like it cost a couple of bucks - was directed by Joseph Hahn and made its debut at last night's MTV Video Music Awards. Quite simply, it's her "Thriller," with a zombified Taylor joining the ghosts of her past... and I love it. Over 17 million views in 12 hours, but if you haven't seen it or just want to check it out again, do so below - right here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine.
This has been in my queue to post since Wednesday, but since it's still fresh to many (and just plain rules), I'm giving it some belated love. The latest music video from the FOO FIGHTERS' forthcoming album, Concrete and Gold (out September 15) is "The Sky is a Neighborhood." Once again directed by fellow "Rock Father" Dave Grohl, this time he features his daughters in the clip as they play beneath the stars. Check it out below...
