The track features three members of Angel – guitarist Punky Meadows, vocalist Frank Dimino, and bassist Felix Robinson, as well as Punky’s band members Danny Farrow, Charlie Calv and Bob Pantella, who all performed on the song. They also filmed a brand-new video at The Chance Theatre in New York for the song, in which it is the first time since 1980 that three members of Angel appear together in a music video. Watch the clip, below.

The tune can be ordered at iTunes, by clicking here.

“Man, we had such a great time shooting our latest video with Frank, Felix and the guys,” says Punky. “Danny and I talked about doing this video for a while. We thought it would be something special for not only the fans of my band, but for the many Angel fans as well. Frank really delivered on this track, and the whole band kicked ass!!!”

Sons Of Apollo–former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force)—have just released the video for “Coming Home” from their highly anticipated debut album, Psychotic Symphony. Watch it below.

The song is now available on all digital outlets starting today. Set for release on October 20th through InsideOutMusic/Sony, Psychotic Symphony, is now available to pre-order on 2CD Mediabook (featuring a second disc of instrumental mixes), Gatefold 2LP vinyl + CD, Standard Jewelcase CD & digital download. Pre-order now here now.

Coming Home immediately felt like the Sons Of Apollo ‘grand entrance’ as soon as we wrote the song,” says Portnoy. “Almost like a fighter entering the ring. I knew this had to be the first video and first time people see us playing together. The video was shot at Ocean Studios in Burbank, CA, where we wrote and recorded the album. So you’re essentially seeing the exact place and environment that Sons Of Apollo was born.

I assume most people’s expectations of the band from its lineup is for SOA to be a self-indulgent ‘wank-fest’ (and granted, there are three 10-minute Prog epics on the album.), but Coming Home is an example that we are just as much a rock band cut from the cloth of classic bands like Van Halen as well.”

Listen to the song, Signs of the Time, here.

The full track-listing of Psychotic Symphony is as follows:

1. God of The Sun
2. Coming Home
3. Signs of the Time
4. Labyrinth
5. Alive
6. Lost In Oblivion
7. Figaro’s Whore
8. Divine Addiction
9. Opus Maximus

Sons Of Apollo will hit the road in 2018 for their first worldwide tour.

Page Six reports:

Justin Bieber and Marilyn Manson may not seem like the most natural of rivals, but that hasn’t stopped them from engaging in one of the more bizarre celebrity beefs of 2017.

The feud dates back to last year, when the Canadian pop star, 23, claimed the shock rocker, 48, had given him permission to use his image on a T-shirt – which has the words “Bigger than Satan … Bieber” embroidered on the back – that Barneys sold for $195.

“Thank you Marilyn Manson for signing off on the ‘Bigger than Satan’ x Justin Bieber tee,” Fear of God’s Jerrry Lorenzo, who designed the shirt, wrote on Instagram in July 2016. “Thanks for understanding our approach and re-interpretation of your vision. Never would of thought printing on my vintage T-shirt collection would take us this far.”

But here’s the problem, Manson told Consequence of Sound he never approved the use of his image and name for the shirt.

According to the rocker, when the two finally met, Bieber “was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.’”

It’s the comment about making the multi-platinum musician “relevant again” that really seems to have set off Manson.

“He was a real piece of s–t in the way he had the arrogance to say that,” Manson told the website. “He was a real touchy-feely guy, too, like, ‘yo, yo bro!’ and touches you when he’s talking. I’m like, you need to stand down, you’re d–k height on me, OK? Alright? So stand down, son.”

To get back at him, Manson then fooled Bieber into thinking he’d appear on stage with him at a concert to perform a duet of the latter’s hit “Beautiful People,” even though he had no intention of doing so.

“He believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid,” the musician said.

Manson also claims he made Bieber and Lorenzo pay for using his name on the shirt, saying, “They didn’t even fight, they were just like, ‘Yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money.’ ”

In addition to the money he presumably made from the shirt, the feud also comes at a good time for Manson. His new album, “Heaven Upside Down,” will be released on Oct. 6.

Reps for Bieber and Manson did not reply to a request for comment.

In recent Manson news, the singer is currently streaming a new song called, We Know Where You F–king Live, which appears on his forthcoming album, Heaven Upside Down. The record will be released on October 6th.

Kory Grow of Rolling Stone interviewed Ozzy Osbourne. Highlights from the interview appear below.

Rolling Stone: What’s the best part of success?

Ozzy: Not doing a job that you don’t really want to do. You can’t say what I do is a job – it’s a f–king gift from God.

Rolling Stone: How do you relax now?

Ozzy: Masturbate [laughs]. No, I have a room in my house where I paint. I’m just mixing colors. I’m not an artist by any sort, but I do designs and patterns and listen to Eighties music or watch a bit of TV. I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones, like 90 percent of the world is.

Rolling Stone: What music still moves you the most?

Ozzy: I like old music. I have things that turn me on from the Seventies, a bunch from the Eighties. You know, I can’t remember the fucking Nineties. I remember Waco and the Oklahoma bombing – but I can’t remember the Nineties. I thought the Eighties were pretty cool, and it was a lot more personal in the Seventies; there wasn’t that many bands about, compared to what it was the Eighties.

Rolling Stone: Who are your heroes?

Ozzy: I’d have to say the Beatles. They turned me on to wanting to be a rock & roll performer. And I like Mick Jagger as a frontman. We all owe him a certain amount of respect. He can still do it in his seventies.

Rolling Stone: You recently finished Black Sabbath’s “The End” Tour. What are your thoughts on retirement?

Ozzy: People around my age go, “I’m 65 now. I’m retired.” Then they f–king die. My father got a bit of cash from the job he had, did the garden and died. And I’m going, “That’s a bit of an anticlimax after working so many years in a factory.” I ain’t retiring. People still want to see me, so what’s there to retire from?

Rolling Stone: What did you learn from saying goodbye to Sabbath?

Ozzy: They’ve retired but I haven’t. It’s like I’m jumping off one boat onto another. People forget, I was with Sabbath from ’68 to ’79, but I’ve been on my own from ’79 ’til now. I’ve been on my own thing for a lot longer than when I was with Sabbath. I love what Sabbath did for me and I love what I did for Sabbath, but it’s not the be-all, end-all of my own whole career.

Rolling Stone: Since you’ve been solo since ’79, what have you learned about leadership?

Ozzy: I’m not so much into it; it’s my wife. Sharon would back me up or advise me on what to do, or what not to do, and I listened. Although Sharon came to me recently and said it wasn’t all her either. It must have been unnerving when I started biting the f–king head off this and that.

Rolling Stone: What did you learn from biting the heads of the bat and the dove?

Ozzy: That Ozzy’s a bit more than [those stories]. People remember Robin Hood and Jesse James and Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone – they don’t remember people that did some good. It’s just folklore.

Rolling Stone: Your guitarist, Randy Rhoads, died in a plane crash while you were on tour in 1982. What did you learn about moving forward?

Ozzy: I felt somewhat responsible. If he wasn’t in my band, he would probably be alive. Also, at the same time, I thought if I had been awake, I know I would have been on the plane with him. So, it’s a weird feeling for me. It really f–ked me up for a long while. Sharon took it harder than anybody. She was the organizer of the band at that point. It was just one of them f–king things. It was a freak accident and all that. But Sharon said, “You’ve got to get back on the horse.” I said, “You must be f–king joking. Who’s gonna replace Randy? He’s unreplacable.” She says, “We’ve got to go.” I remember doing Madison Square Garden with this [guitarist] Bernie Tormé. It was such a surreal thing. It takes a while to get over something so traumatic.

Rolling Stone: You don’t play any instruments. What have you learned about making music with just your voice?

Ozzy: That’s one of my biggest regrets. I can play a little bit of harmonica, and that’s about it. But I have an ear for melody. I once talked to a writer and he said, “You can learn the piano, but you most probably will lose your natural instinct for melody.” And I said, “That’s too much of a gamble.” It’s been interesting, because I can’t communicate on a musical level with other musicians. I just like what’s in my head. Musicians tend to go, “Oh, I can transcribe whatever you write.” But they’ll make it their song and then it’s this f–king political side of it – “I wrote this, you wrote that.” Then Sharon gets pissed off and goes, “Hey, wait a minute. It was Ozzy’s idea,” or whatever.

Rolling Stone: Crazy Train is about the Cold War and nuclear bombs. Do you think about that?

Ozzy: When I was singing that on the weekend at some festival thing, I’m singing, “Heirs of a cold war/That’s what we’ve become.” I went, “Fuck me. It’s started.” I’m like, well, we ain’t in the Cold War anymore. Now we’ve got Donald Trump, which is something. You should be careful what you write about, when you do a song. I didn’t write those lyrics; the old bass player did. For the time, it was perfect. It’s interesting.

Rolling Stone: Gene Simmons has said that rock is dead. Do you agree?

Ozzy: Live, good rock music is not dead. But I think the record industry is really suffering now. There are only about two f–king record companies left. And when I went to the Grammys a couple of years ago, there’d be artists who’d go from a f–king laptop straight to the charts and release a record. It’s really a sad thing for me. … It’s just changed so much. I said to Sharon, “It’s like when vaudeville ended and f–king modern music began. We’re the history now.” And no matter what gimmick – what color album, vinyl, whatever, the fact of the matter is people don’t want it. Why should people buy records when they can download it. You can get anything now online. And at the same time, I don’t know how to turn the f–king light on the monitor.

Rolling Stone: Will you be making another record soon?

Ozzy: I would like to do another record. But it’s wasting money. Nobody’s buying. You don’t have to sell that many records anymore to get a Number One. Depending how many records you’ve sold. You can have 30 or 40 [laughs]. Nobody buys them.

Rolling Stone: What is it about the U.S. that made you want to move here?

Ozzy: I wouldn’t have survived as long as I have in England. America is a music capital for me. You could do well in Germany but to last 49 years in another country, I don’t know. I’m lucky.

Tom Keifer once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.”

He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of The Way Life Goes-Deluxe Edition, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, The Way Life Goes, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.

The Way Life Goes-Deluxe Edition is finally set for release October 20th on Cleopatra Records. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon and Cleopatra’s website. The package will include the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (Kings of Leon, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy® Award-winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) with Keifer and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Paul Simmons, Paul Taylor, Savannah Keifer, and Kendra Chantelle). Fans will finally get to hear the long-awaited studio recording of The Beatles’ With A Little Help From My Friends, which Keifer performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the Cinderella classic Nobody’s Fool, newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

“The reason that I picked up guitar, the reason that I sing the way I do, was all because of that guy,” said Hale of Keifer’s influence on her at a young age. The two first performed Nobody’s Fool live together in Atlantic City, NJ in September 2013. “I remember the first time seeing Lzzy perform live at the House of Blues show in Atlantic City and being absolutely floored by the power of her voice and performance,” Keifer continues. “She’s an amazing artist and has been a great inspiration to me as well.”

There will also be a bonus DVD with music videos, tour clips, and “The Way Life’s Goin,’” a 30-minute documentary produced by Tammy Vega (Keifer’s longtime official photographer) about the creation of the bonus tracks, exclusive interviews with the band filmed during the new recording sessions, and live footage.

The Way Life Goes-Deluxe Edition will be wrapped in an all new six-panel digipak designed by artist David Calcano (creator of the Fantoons comic strip series) with 20 pages of one-of-a-kind unique illustrations depicting each song.

As Keifer explains, “Everything from the new artwork, documentary, videos and bonus tracks contained in the Deluxe Edition s a sum of all the amazingly talented people who came into our world as a result of the initial release. The two bonus tracks were specifically chosen and recorded as we felt them both to be special collaborations that came about while touring for The Way Life Goes.”

New band members Jarred Pope (drums) and Kory Myers (keyboards/vocals) join the #keiferband lineup in 2017. Writing has begun for a follow-up to THE WAY LIFE GOES with recording slated for Fall 2018.

George Simpson of Express.co.uk reports:

Last February saw Black Sabbath play what was supposedly their last live performance after 50 years together.

Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi headed back to where it all started, performing one last show at Birmingham Genting Arena.

In a recent interview promoting Black Sabbath: The End of The End – a rockumentary covering the final tour – Tony spoke out on what it was like playing the last show.

The 69-year-old rocker said, “It was a weird atmosphere. You were thinking, ‘This could be the last time I ever play this song.’

Tony continued, “Looking out at the audience we were seeing true fans from all across the world. It was sad really because people were crying. You thought, ‘Bloody hell,’ you realise what you are to these people. It was really emotional…”

…But was The End world tour really the end for Black Sabbath?

Tony replied, “Who knows. We might at some point do one off shows. There’s nothing planned at all.”

Black Sabbath: The End Of The End will be shown in 1500 movie theaters on September 28th. Click here for participating venues, and to view a performance of Children of the Grave, please go here.
