R.E.M. lead singer Michael Stipe has revealed in a message posted to that he is currently in the studio working on a new R.E.M. album.

No further details of the album have surfaced as of yet.

The band released their most recent album, Collapse Into Now, back in March of this year.

The album was the last of the band’s recording contract with Warner, leading to speculation that the band may go the route of Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and others in self-releasing their next album.


Cavalera Conspiracy release their second album, ‘Blunt Force Trauma’, on Monday 29 March. It’s five years since Max and Igor officially kissed and made-up and two years since their debut ‘Inflikted’ hit record stores, so we think the timing is just right for a second slab of South American metal!

Listen here :

Soundgarden are ready to go into the studio – and they’ve got a producer lined up. The reunited grunge heroes will start recording a new studio album next week, with producer Adam Kasper, who worked with them on their last record, 1996’s Down On The Upside.

The band intend to take their time, with no release schedule planned at the moment. So, it might come out in 2011, but there again it might not.

Pearl Jam are to start recording a new album next month.Talking toBillboard, bassist Jeff Ament said: “We did a whole bunch of demos and everybody’s got a disc of 25 (songs) right now. April will be the time where we get together and learn to play all these demos, and figure out which 12 to 15 of them float to the top. Hopefully we can get something done this year”.

DESTRUCTION’s new album, “Day Of Reckoning”, will be released on February 18, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. The first limited edition of the album will not feature the band’s logo on the booklet while the vinyl version and second pressing of the CD will show a red DESTRUCTION logo on it.

A brand new DESTRUCTION track entitled “The Price” has been posted on the band’s MySpace page. Schmier states, “This song expresses the spirit of ‘Day Of Reckoning’ at its best: faster, more raw, and tighter. One of my favorite tracks on the album because you can feel the fire and the joy of playing! The band feels the old-school aggression again and this song is like a rocket: UN-FUCKIN’-STOPPABLE!”

DESTRUCTION filmed a video for the song “Hate Is My Fuel” on Friday, December 31 at the Headbangersball Silvester Festival in Burgdorf, Switzerland. Berlin, Germany’s Roax Films is producing the clip, which will be released in early February.
