Here are the top 3 stories today from the world of modern rock.
- Green Day are selling a ton of their unused gear to help mark the 25th anniversary of their album ‘Dookie’. They’ve teamed up with Reverb.com to sell more than 100 pieces of gear used during their career. Nearly 50 of Billie Joe Armstrong’s guitars are up for grabs. Drummer Tré Cool is selling five drum kits and a dozen snare drums.
2. Pearl Jam have spoken out to Rolling Stone about new music, and them feeling the need to write some new songs, as well as the influence they felt from Chris Cornell’s passing. Jeff Ament said “It’d be fun to record or even just write a song together. I think when Chris Cornell passed, that’s really been a tough one to wrap our heads around, and then there’s just life stuff.” He says they already have a ton of material, and when asked about a time frame for release claimed it would happen as soon as they could all get into a studio together and lay the songs down.
3. Flight of the Conchords have announced a new live album, ‘Live In London’, and unveiled a performance of a new song called ‘Iain and Deanna’. It’s a recording from their HBO live special that aired in 2018 and the album of the gig will be released on March 8 via the Sub Pop label. The 22-track LP features seven new songs from the show, and a bonus track titled ‘The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)’ closes the album that wasn’t included in the TV special.
‘Live In London’ will be available on vinyl, CD, and download on March 8th.
