According to Muselive.com, Muse are set to debut  'Survival', their brand new single for the London 2012 Olympics, tonight (27th June 2012) on BBC Radio 1. 


The station will premiere the track at 7.30pm (BST) on Zane Lowe's show and will be the band’s first new track since they released their last album back in 2009.

 

The band released a statement on their website announcing that the band’s new track had been selected by LOCOG as London 2012's official song.

 

“We are very excited to announce that a Muse song, Survival, has been selected by the London Olympic committee to be the main official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Matt wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It's about total conviction and pure determination to win.”


The statement from the band also added “We are honoured that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe.”


The band's new album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance' and has been recorded in London. Little has been revealed about the album so far, though there are rumors that this album will have much more “electronic” sound. Bassist Chris Wolstenholme has said that the band wanted to do "something radically different" on their new LP.


Muse have also unveiled a video for their upcoming studio album recently which can be seen below. The video ends with the words 'The 2nd Law' and 'September 2012', which is possibly a hint towards the official release date.



The band is also set to play five shows across the UK in October at venues including Manchester Arena and London's O2 Arena. The gigs are set to be a hit with 3 dates sold out already and the remaining nights have only limited tickets available.

 

It’s been over a year since Soundgarden announced that they were back together and recording a new album, their first studio album since 1996's Down On The Upside, and months since we revealed that the band were set to appear at this year’s Download Festival. But the day has come and gone as the band played to a packed Donington Park as the festival began to wind down it's tenth anniversary.


The band opened with 'Spoonman', playing in front of a huge banner bearing a black triangle surrounded by numerous black swirls. They continued with 'Let Me Drown' and 'Gun' as the sun broke through the clouds. The band played a range of tracks from across their career, with 'Fell On Black Days' and 'Black Hole Sun' proving particular hits.


"Thanks for having us Download," Chris Cornell declared, "it's our first show in the UK for 15 years."



He also told of his joy at playing at the famous Donington Park, adding: "If you're in a rock band or you're a fan, it's pretty well documented as being the big hard rock festival worldwide. It's the one."

 

Cornell also spoke of how he was very excited to see a re-formed Black Sabbath bring this year's Download rock festival, which more than 100,000 people attended, to a close.

 

Singer Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler, guitarist Tony Iommi and Tommy Clufetos played a set packed with Black Sabbath tracks including War Pigs, Sweet Leaf and Paranoid.

 

Other acts who appeared on Sunday (10 June) included Rise Against, Megadeth, Anthrax, Ugly Kid Joe, Lamb of God and Black Label Society.

 

The festival was classed by many as the biggest and the best yet, with Download organiser Andy Copping revealing that it's success had already signed up one of next year's headliners with the second due to be finalised in the next few weeks.

Gaga Cancels Indonesia Gig

Posted by Nathan

Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel the Indonesia leg of her world tour after security concerns were caused by threats from hard-line religious groups who claimed her show was too vulgar.

One such religious group, the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), even threatened to prevent Lady Gaga from getting off the plane if she were to land in the country.

With the threat of action from a number of other Muslim groups in the island’s capital of Jakarta, the Indonesian police have refused to issue the eccentric popstress with a permit for her visit.

The concert, originally scheduled for June 3, was a sell out with all 50,000 tickets for the extravaganza sold within hours of going on sale. Although Gaga’s fans will be enormously disappointed, promoters have pledged that all ticket holders will be fully reimbursed.

Police were prepared to issue a permit to the American pop icon if she agreed to tone down her Born This Way Ball concept tour. However, Lady Gaga’s flamboyance was not to be tamed, and instead her management team decided the best solution was to cancel the show.

In a statement from Habib Salim Alatas, the Islamic Defenders Front’s Jakarta chairman, said: “The FPI is grateful she has not decided to come. Indonesians will be protected from sin brought about by this Mother Monster, the destroyer of morals.

“Lady Gaga fans, stop complaining. Repent and stop worshipping the devil. Do you want your lives taken away by God as infidels?”

Hopefully for Lady Gaga this is water off a duck’s back as it is not the first time her concerts have met with objections. Back in April the South Korean leg of her tour was transformed into an adults only gig as a way of appeasing Christian groups accusing the singer of blasphemy.

One thing’s for sure, Lady Gaga does not suffer from a lack of confidence, so she will be sure to bounce back for the end of the tour in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.
