99Rock Music News: U2 Release Video for 'The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)': Watch

Despite having done the world's most talked (and griped) about album promotion — and later sort of apologizing for it — U2 haven't quit. Today brings the release of the video for "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)."

It's a glitchy, lo-fi visual where the band casually plays the song — a big contrast from their futuristic way of dropping their new album, Songs of Innocence, onto everyone's iClouds. But that's likely what they wanted to go for, especially in the light of backlash.

It makes sense too, considering U2 still consider themselves to be punk, that they'd go with a more homemade feeling video for a song that honors the late Ramone. During their first interview after the album's release, Bono told CBS Radio's KROQ that "The punk rock thing to do is annoy people and get in their faces."

UPDATE: Since it's release, it has already been removed. However, you can still hear the single track below...

Where were you the last time Incubus released a new album? Go ahead and think for a bit; after all, it's been a couple years.

But for fans of the rock band from Calabasas, California, the wait is nearing its close. Overnight, guitarist Mike Einziger posted a new video to his Instagram with news that the recording of Incubus' next album is underway.

"Our first day of tracking!" he exclaimed with the hashtag #incubusnewalbum. In the clip, drummer Jose Pasillas can be seen laying down a drum track while a jangly electric guitar rhythm is heard alongside him.
The news comes after first indications that the wheels were turning for new Incubus material back in July. Einziger told that he and frontman Brandon Boyd were "scheming" and in the process of creating new music together.

99Rock Music News:  Stream Weezer’s ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ in Full

Bands claim to revisit their old sound all the time. Whether they do that or not — and to what effect — is a whole other question, but the declaration, at least, is there.

Weezer have teased a return to form on Everything Will Be Alright in the End — it’s an album full of self-referential lyrics; just look at the entire first verse of lead single “Back to the Shack,” which finds frontman Rivers Cuomo singing about how he’d returned to lead guitar, to the fans’ eternal gratefulness.

As for whether or not the album as a whole, from its lyricism to its instrumentation and overall sound, represents Weezer of yore rather than Weezer of bore (sorry, that was really horrible), curious listeners can now stream Everything Will Be Alright in the End in full on iTunes Radio.

For the new record, Weezer reconvened with producer Ric Ocasek, who helmed their debut self-titled record (known to most as The Blue Album) and their third, also self-titled release (The Green Album).

99Rock Music News:  Foo Fighters Tease New Song ‘Outside’ in Concert: Watch

(Photo courtesy Justin Sullivan)



Foo Fighters have been fairly covert with the revelation of their new album Sonic Highways, teasing the album for months before its announcement and only premiering a small snippet of new material in the trailer for the record’s corresponding HBO series trailer.

And now, on Sept. 16, there’s still no full song from the band’s new record. However, after a few concerts last week in the U.K., the five-piece has officially dropped a few new bars from one of the album’s nine new songs, “Outside.”

Consequence of Sound points out that the debut in question occurred during the band’s 2007 song “The Pretender.” After the song’s second chorus, rather than segueing into the bridge, a new riff comes exploding out of the speakers to the crowd’s initial confusion but later delight.

Shortly after the interlude begins, the band’s back to “The Pretender” to finish things off — but not before laying down a few guitar licks that should encourage those looking for a hard-rocking album from the Dave Grohl-led quintet.

99Rock Music News:  The Lumineers Are Working on Their Next Album

We last heard from The Lumineers with the release of a song they wrote for The Walking Dead, “Visions of China.”
But soon, we’ll be hearing a whole lot more from them because the Denver folk rock band is at work on their sophomore album, the followup to their 2012 self-titled debut.
The band announced the news on their Instagram today, where they posted a photo of lead singer and guitarist Wesley Schultz along with the caption, “Well folks, we are back in the studio, chippin away at some new ideas. It’s been one hell of a ride so far and we are excited to be writing again. Thanks and stay tuned…”
Since the release of The Lumineers, the band has signed to Dualtone Records in North America and Decca/Universal abroad. In a press release, Dualtone GM Paul Roper issued the statement, “”We consider The Lumineers and their team as family and we are thrilled to be continuing our partnership forward with their sophomore album. The early songs we have heard are proof that they are writing material every bit as compelling as the tracks from their debut. This record will be well worth the wait.”
