Written by

Seattle rockers CANDLEBOX are gearing up for the April 3 release of their new album LOVE STORIES & OTHER MUSINGS, and today they've released a lyric video for their recent single Believe in It. The new video keeps the ''movie theater'' theme of their album artwork intact with some additional elements. Check out the new clip below.

I just posted last week that THE SMITHS are getting a Lullaby Album via Rockabye Baby! next month, but now the adults can get in on the action with an extensive collection of reissues. The folks over at Rhino have sent The Rock Father™ full details and tracklistings for the entire affair - all of which can be read below.

Written by
I'm really digging CHERRI BOMB, and I think by the end of 2012, a lot of people will be feeling the same way. Hollywood Records sent over their 2011 STARK EP last week along with an advance copy of their forthcoming album THIS IS THE END OF CONTROL, and believe me - this L.A.-based group of teenage female rockers is impressive. Managed by former HOLE drummer Samantha Maloney, CHERRI BOMB is offering a limited-time Free Download of their new single, Raw. Real. Grab a copy on their official site, or through the TopSpin widget below.

Next Tuesday (March 26), THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS will release their long-awaited fourth studio album, KIDS IN THE STREET (Interscope). Tonight, an email arrived at The Rock Father HQ with a link to their just-released album trailer, so let's give it a look, shall we?

I have a interesting personal anecdote involving THE CULT... Some years ago, in the not-so-distant past, I'd written a screenplay that a ''producer'' wanted CULT frontman Ian Astbury to be a part of. Using a friend of mine who is a friend (and past collaborator) of Astbury as the channel, said ''producer'' (a term to be used in an exceptionally loose manner) pushed the issue (being a big fan of THE CULT), and Astbury apparently read the script - and to my understanding, hated it.
