Sylvester Stallone Confirms Demolition Man 2 In the Works

It ain’t over ’til it’s over. That’s the motto Sylvester Stallone lives by and why we’ll never count out a sequel to any of his properties. That being said, we’re admittedly a little surprised to hear that there’s a sequel in development to Demolition Man. “I think it is coming,” the veteran actor stated in a recent Q&A on Instagram. “We’re working on it right now with Warner Brothers and it’s looking fantastic, so that should come out. That’s going to happen.” Logically speaking, it makes sense. He’s already put the proverbial final nail in the coffin for his two most beloved franchises, that being Rocky and Rambo, so it’s only logical that he’d attempt to revisit the 1993 sci-fi blockbuster. Directed by Marco Brambilla in his feature-film debut and co-written by Heathers screenwriter...

#MetallicaMondays: Watch Metallica’s 2016 “House of Vans” London Show in Full

Metallica are back with another concert stream, continuing their weekly #MetallicaMondays series. Today’s offering is of the band’s 2016 “House of Vans” gig in London. The “House of Vans” show came on the same day (November 18th, 2016) that Metallica’s most recent album, Hardwired … To Self-Destruct, was released. The set featured 15 songs, including three from the new LP, among classics like “One”, “Master of Puppets”, and “Enter Sandman”. Metallica announced the free streaming series after postponing or canceling their spring shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Metallica were also slated to headline the Louder Than Life Festiv...

The US is Getting Its First Drive-In Concert Tour

Regardless of what Missouri and Arkansas say, the prospect of live music in a confined venue setting seems implausible for the foreseeable future. Instead, musicians in countries like Denmark and Germany have gotten creative by staging “drive-in” concerts in which attendees watch from the safety of their vehicle. Now, electronic musician Marc Rebillet has announced the first drive-in concert tour in the US. Rebillet will embark on the seven-date drive-in tour beginning in June, with socially distant concerts scheduled in North Carolina, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. In lieu of opening acts, each show will screen short films. Additionally, attendees will be able to purchase merchandise, food, and more. Check out the full itinerary below (specific venue information is still forthcoming). Rebi...

Watsky Attempting to Break World Record with 33-Hour Freestyle: Watch

Bay Area rapper Watsky was looking forward to touring behind his latest album, Placement — that was, until the coronavirus derailed his plans. Now with nothing but time on his hands, the notable Def Poetry Jam alum has decided to spend his quarantine setting a world record for the longest freestyle. The MC born George Watsky is specifically aiming to rhyme for a mind-boggling 33 hours and 33 minutes straight. If he’s successful, he will break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Continuous Rap Performance, which is currently held by Pablo Alvarez’s nearly 26-hour triumph set in 2016. The 33-year-old Watsky kicked off his mission Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. PT and is hoping to make it to the finish line that’s set for Thursday, May 7th, 7:30 p.m. In true quarantine fashion, Watsk...

Lollapalooza Opens the Vault on Foo Fighters’ Classic 2011 Concert

Lollapalooza is hoping to wait out the coronavirus pandemic, delaying the lineup announcement but not cancelling just yet. In the meantime, the Chicago institution has begun releasing classic performances from the vault. First up was The Strokes 2010 comeback concert, and now today, Thursday May 7th, the festival has shared the Foo Fighters’ legendary show from 2011. Tune in below beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT. That 20-song gig was notable for bad weather and a great performance to overcome it. “I don’t give a fuck if it’s raining tonight!” frontman Dave Grohl howled into the audience. The torrential downpour reached its zenith during “My Hero”, as the audience shouted along in one wild and muddy mass. At the end of the show, Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction joined Grohl on stage for a ...

SWARM and Caster Invoke Infernal Terror with Vicious Collaboration “Blood”

Fans of the otherworldly bass crafter, SWARM, are still trying to shake the horror that his March EP, Eat Me Alive, inspired. Fortunately for the nightmare chasers out there, he’s made his return to the airwaves in the form of a new collaboration with Caster called “Blood.” As haunting as it is mechanical, “Blood” showcases the duo’s innate ability to tell complex tales with each bassline. Fusing orchestral notes with an aggressive, pounding beat, closing your eyes while listening to “Blood” transports you to a rave in a 16th central cathedral. In a quote provided to EDM.com, SWARM explained how his latest offering continues the story he told back in March and how working with Caster was a great experience. “Blood feels like a natu...

Flume Paints Face Blue, Teases Unreleased Remix of Infamous 1998 Hit “Blue (Da Ba Dee)”

Flume took to Instagram today to share a clip of him working on a new remix of Eiffel 65‘s infamous 1998 Grammy Award-winning hit “Blue (Da Ba Dee).” He treats fan to the comedic side of Flume with the video, which shows the prolific Australian producer working on his “Blue” remix with blue paint smeared all over his face and hands as if he were a Smurf. Flume has the distinct ability to take any song he wants, wave a magic production wand, and turn it into a beautiful electronic effort oozing with a sound all his own. Such is the case with this remix, as he takes “Blue,” which is not an easy song to remix by any means, and infuses his signature future bass sound with thick 808s and expertly pitched vocal chops. Flume’s puppy, on the oth...

Little Simz Releases New EP Drop 6: Stream

Little Simz has released the new EP called Drop 6. Stream it below via Apple Music or Spotify. Drop 6 is her first solo release since last year’s excellent LP GREY Area, one of our favorite albums of 2019. The rising UK artist — whom Kenrdrick Lamar once said “might be the illest doing it right now” — recorded the new EP during one month of quarantine. Little Simz produced the tracks herself, with additional production from Kal Banx, BLK VYNL, St Francis Hotel, and OTG. While she started the EP at the beginning of April and finished it by the end, the interim was filled self-doubt and depression. In a statement, she wrote about getting in her own head, thinking, “‘This isn’t good enough, people won’t like this, it’s shit, the mix is trash,’ everything negative under the...

Gum Country Serve Up New Song “Tennis (I Feel Ok)”: Stream

Next month brings the release of Somewhere, the debut album from new band Gum Country. Comprised of The Courtneys guitarist Courtney Garvin and multi-instrumentalist Connor Mayer, the indie rock duo is previewing the record today with a single called “Tennis (I Feel Ok)”. Contrary to that little parenthetical, Gum Country get rather thrilled when it comes to hitting the tennis courts. “Kinda goofy, but in all honesty my relationship with tennis is so meaningful to me on a spiritual level,” Garvin explained in a statement. “It’s my meditation practice. The game makes you present, you’re repeating movements, and finding a rhythm.” Garvin’s ode to the sport aptly has a rhythmic chillness to it, its chunky lo-fi chords chugging about steadily à la early Yuck. Though the band’s self-descri...
