As previously reported, Airbourne will release their fifth studio album, Boneshaker, on October 25th via Spinefarm Records. The band has released a video for the title track, watch it below.
The clip was shot during both the band’s mainstage performance at this year’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, and headline set at Skogsrojet festival in Sweden. It perfectly captures the adrenaline-inducing Airbourne live show experience.
“We didn’t wanna f–k around with story lines or any of that s–t,” says Airbourne frontman Joel O’Keeffe. “Plus we f–kin’ love Wacken. This year was our fourth time playing there and it marked their 30th anniversary. We debuted our new single Boneshaker in front of 90,000 people… here it is on film, crank it up and rock out to the max!”

Post Malone’s third studio LP, Hollywood’s Bleeding, arrived today (September 6th) featuring contributions from SZA, Kanye West, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Father John Misty and more. But perhaps the most surprisingvocal feature comes from iconic Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, who appears alongside Travis Scott on the track Take What You Want.
Osbourne – who contributes new vocals and not a sample – is the first voice we hear on the song, belting out the aching chorus, “I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone/You bled me dry just like the tears you never show/Why don’t you take what you want from me?/Take what you need from me/Take what you want and go.” Malone has spoken about his fondness for heavy metal in the past, and even played in a hardcore band before he became a pop-chart dominator, so this feature feels very full-circle.
Listen to Osbourne’s contributions below and read more at Rolling Stone.
Dana’s note: Thank you to RTunes for passing this along.
Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of the mighty Pretty Maids new studio album, Undress Your Madness, on November 8th, The first single, and video, Serpentine, can be viewed below.
The album will be available on CD, LP, and Digital formats. Pre-order here. Fans can also pre-order limited edition, 180g, gatefold, silver color vinyl and t-shirt bundles from Frontiers’ webstores here.
Undress Your Madness is Pretty Maids’ highly anticipated follow up to 2016’s critically and commercially successful release Kingmaker, a record that continued the “revitalized” path that the band set out upon with the now stone cold classic albums Pandemonium and Motherland. It’s always difficult to follow a successful and inspired record, but Undress Your Madness shows Pretty Maids are still in the freshest and most vital phase of their career since the early 90’s.
“I think the new album is a kind of continuation of what we’ve done the past ten years,” says singer Ronnie Atkins. “I’m really happy about the way it turned out ’cause there’s a lot of good songs on it in my humble opinion and it’s probably even more melodic than our previous efforts.”
“The album was written in a very short period of time,” tells Ronnie Atkins. “Basically it was written in January, just prior to recording it in February this year. So everything was very fresh when we entered the studio, in fact, so fresh that some of the songs were hardly finished when we started, but it all fell into place as we preceded with the recordings.”
Undress Your Madness track list:
1. Intro 2. Serpentine 3. Firesoul Fly 4. Undress Your Madness 5. Will You Still Kiss Me (If I See You In Heaven) 6. Runaway World 7. If You Want Peace (Prepare For War) 8. Slavedriver 9. Shadowlands 10. Black Thunder 11. Strength Of A Rose

Without question, Rob Halford is one of heavy metal’s all-time great vocalists – as heard through his highly influential and groundbreaking work with Judas Priest. But over his career, he has also proven able to master a variety of other styles vocally – including holiday-themed music. And in time for this holiday season, Halford will be releasing an all-new album, entitled Celestial (released October 18thvia Legacy Recordings), and a day later, will be signing CD or LP purchases of the album at FYE Arizona Mills at 2:00 P.M (in Tempe, Arizona). Details to follow closer to the event.
The album will also be available for pre-order on Rob’s artist store – with exclusive merchandise and a limited, autographed metallic-gold color version of the vinyl.
Credited to Rob Halford with Family and Friends, the album mixes holiday classics with all-new compositions, and will appeal to lovers of traditional holiday music and headbangers alike. “The great thing about heavy metal is it’s got these kinds of multiple dimensions,” explains the man also known as the Metal God. “I think when you look at it from an outside point of view – if you’re not really familiar with the metal scene – it can look pretty intimidating. And it is a very strong, powerful experience. But it comes at different levels. I think the music that we’ve made on Celestial, for example, gives a display of that. Metal maniacs – as we call ourselves – are just as ready for the holidays as everybody else. And what we’ve tried to do with this music is to reach out to as many of those metal dimensions as we possibly can.”
And judging from the “Rob Halford with Family and Friends” banner, Celestial sees Halford joined by a supporting cast of those very close to him – his brother (Nigel) on drums, his nephew on bass (Alex, son of Priest bassist Ian Hill), has sister (Sue) on bells, and twin guitar tandem of Robert Jones and Jon Blakey.
Once all the contributors were in place, Halford “went away and listened to a lot holiday music and Christmas carols. Traditional stuff. 12 tracks – including original tracks that I’m particularly excited about. And in that way, because of the dimensions of each song and the messages of each song, I think we cover a really broad platform. To me, more than anything, I wanted it to have its own characteristics and be a little bit more different than the regular rock n’ roll Christmas album.”
Halford has certainly accomplished this goal, as evidenced by such standout originals as the album-opening title track, Donner and Blitzen, and Protected by the Light, as well as reworkings of such holiday standards as God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Joy to the World, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, among other standouts. “Donner and Blitzen’gets the snowball rolling for Celestial – a song full of excitement, love and hope,” says Rob. “You can hear and feel the power of Christmas time – energy roarin’ with rockin’ reindeers haulin’!” The video for Donner and Blitzen can be viewed below.
“I think the holidays for any family are a mixture of fun and excitement and apprehension of the whole event. The magic of it more than anything else. It’s just a beautiful time of year – which a lot of us wish would be for every day of the year. It’s a beautiful thing as far as bringing families together. So, what better way to celebrate it than with your family, friends…and music. You must have music at Christmas time.” And with the arrival of Celestial, Rob Halford has certainly done his part.
