The Tragically Hip To Reissue Debut Album 'Up To Here' As Deluxe Box Set

The Tragically Hip have announced plans to release a commemorative box set of their debut album, Up To Here, the latest installment of special deluxe packages, on November 8 via UMe.

Up to Here was released in September 1989. It is one of the band's most successful albums, achieving Diamond status in Canada for sales of over a million copies, earning the band a Juno Award for Most Promising Artist, and also introducing fan-favorite songs such as "Blow at High Dough," "New Orleans Is Sinking," and "Boots or Hearts."

The expanded reissue of Up To Here will be available as a four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl alongside a book documenting the history of the debut album era. The reissue includes a 2024 remastering of the original album and four previously unreleased songs that didn't make it on the original Up To Here album - "She's Got What It Takes," "Get Back Again," "Rain, Hearts And Fire" and "Wait So Long."

A recording of Live at Misty Moon, the special filmed for MuchMusic in 1990 from the Misty Moon Cabaret in Halifax, with an accompanying 1-hour concert film, is also included on Blu-ray. The package also contains demos from 1988 recorded before the Up To Here recording session. The package will also be available in a three-disc CD format.

Queen Catalog Reportedly To Be Acquired By Sony Music For Over $1 Billion

Queen Catalog Reportedly To Be Acquired By Sony Music For Over $1 Billion

Queen have reportedly agreed to sell their recording, publishing and other rights to Sony Music for a record-smashing $1.27 billion.

According to Hits, the deal also includes name and likeness rights, potentially opening the door to musicals, commercial and film placements, merchandising and other money-making opportunities.

Complicating the deal is the fact that Disney Music Group owns Queen's recorded music catalog in North America, which it acquired at some point in the 2000s.

Disney and Universal Music Group will permanently retain the rights to distribute Queen's records in North America, but the band's share of the royalties will now go to Sony Music.

For the rest of the world, those rights are expected to transfer from current owners UMG to Sony Music in either 2026 or 2027.

According to Variety, the only revenue not covered in the deal is for live performances, which founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, who still actively tour with singer Adam Lambert, will retain. Bassist John Deacon retired shortly after the 1991 death of founding singer Freddie Mercury.

The band's 2018 autobiographical film Bohemian Rhapsody earned over $900 million worldwide.

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Has 'Zero Respect' For Imagine Dragons After Azerbaijan Show

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Has 'Zero Respect' For Imagine Dragons After Azerbaijan Show

In a new interview with Metal Hammer, System Of A Down's Serj Tankian said he has "zero respect" for Imagine Dragons, because the band ignored his concerns and went on to perform in Azerbaijan.

"I have zero respect for those guys. They're not good human beings," Tankian said. "If you are that blind to justice that you will go play a show in a country that's starving another country, illegally... I don't know what to say about you as a human being."

In a letter to Imagine Dragons last summer, Tankian asked them to reconsider playing a show in Baku, arguing that playing there could be viewed as an endorsement of Azerbaijan's authoritarian President Ilham Aliyerv. He wrote that proceeding with the gig at Baku Olympic Stadium "would help whitewash the dictatorial regime's image."

"I really feel that performing in Azerbaijan would have a negative impact on your brand as well," the singer cautioned in the letter. "I'm confident that you can decipher all the facts for yourselves to decide whether to cancel your concert."

Tankian told Metal Hammer that he was disappointed and angry about Imagine Dragon's decision to ignore all entreaties on the issue.

"I don't know these guys, but who are these people?" he says. "I don't understand that type of thinking."

David Gilmour Shares 'Between Two Points' With Daughter Romany Gilmour

David Gilmour Shares 'Between Two Points' With Daughter Romany Gilmour

David Gilmour recently shared a new single, "Between Two Points," featuring his daughter Romany Gilmour.

The song arrived with an accompanying video, which was shot on location in London and Manchester, with David on guitars and featuring Romany on vocals and harp.

The song is from Gilmour's upcoming record, Luck and Strange, which is due out on September 6th via Sony Music.

"I've had that song on my playlist since it was released," Gilmour said about "Between Two Points," a reworking of The Montgolfier Brothers' 1999 song. "More recently I mentioned it to one or two people: I assumed that it had been a hit, but no one knew it. I asked Romany to give it a go. I realized that Romany has exactly the right sort of vulnerability and youth for the song."

The Offspring Share Lyric Video For New Single 'Make It All Right'

The Offspring Share Lyric Video For New Single 'Make It All Right'

The Offspring recently released a lyric video for "Make It All Right," the first single from their upcoming eleventh album, Supercharged.

Supercharged is due out on October 11th via Concord Records.

The animated visual shows a pair of motorcycle riders traveling through an apocalyptic desert wasteland, with the lyrics of the song flying across the screen.

The lyrics of "Make It All Right" talk about having your "partner in crime" by your side, to make you feel confident that you can do everything right. The lyrics go like this, "And you make it all right, And it's gonna be fine, We're like partners in crime, And you make it all right."

The Offspring singer Bryan "Dexter" Holland said about the album, "We wanted this record to have pure energy - from the start to the finish! That's why we called it 'Supercharged'. From the height of our aspirations to the depths of our struggles, we talk about it all on this record.in a way that celebrates the life that we share and where we are now. Our single 'Make It All Right' is a great example of this because it talks about the people in our lives who make us feel strong when we are feeling low - our partners in crime who make us feel all right."

He continued, "The album was recorded in three different locations this time: Maui, Vancouver, and our home studio in Huntington Beach, and together with our producer Bob Rock everything came out awesome. I feel like this is the best we have ever sounded! We've been rocking out and headbanging to it for months! And we can't wait for you guys to hear it!"

R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. played "Losing My Religion" at the Songwriters Hall of Fame gala in New York on Thursday (June 13), performing live for the first time in more than 15 years.

In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, R.E.M. had said it would take a comet for the Georgia foursome - Michael Stipe, Mike Mills, Bill Berry and Peter Buck - to reunite.

Jason Isbell, who inducted R.E.M. into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, said, "The songs they created served a real purpose for kids like me growing up in a small southern town. Somebody out there reluctantly clawing their way into the mainstream who was just as strange and out of place and time as I was. R.E.M. was greater than the sum of its parts. R.E.M. moved like a single instrument."

Isbell also paid tribute to the band by covering "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)."

"Writing songs and having a catalog of work that we're all proud of that is out there for the rest of the world for all time is hands-down the most important aspect of what we did. Second to that is that we managed to do so all those decades and remain friends. And not just friends, dear friends," Stipe said.

"We are four people that very early on decided that we would own our own masters and we would split our royalties and songwriting credits equally," he continued. "All for one and one for all."

The band's last full concert was in November 2008 in Mexico City.

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson Announces Announces New Single 'Resurrection Men'

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson has announced a new solo single, "Resurrection Men," due out July 26th via BMG. "The surf guitar at the intro - the Dick Dale bit - that's me!" explains Dickinson about "Resurrection Men." "We were just mucking around with the tremolo setting, we put the chords down and I went, 'Ok, that's kinda cool!' It was like, 'What if Quentin Tarantino made a metal record?'" he adds. "Then it goes somewhere different, we get a bit heavy, and we did this whole middle section and it was like, 'Were you just channeling Geezer Butler in another life?' It was early Sabbath - Behind the Wall of Sleep. Just, 'Oh my god that's heavy!'"

The three-track CD comes in a gatefold digi-sleeve and includes a limited number of double-sided Mandrake Movie Posters with pre-orders via the official Mandrake Project store, reflecting the comic book artwork for Episode 3 which will be released via Z2 comics on July 17th.

The two CD bonus songs, "Afterglow Of Ragnarok" and "Abduction," were recorded live at Dickinson's show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 4, 2024, as part of his current world tour for The Mandrake Project.

The 1975's Matty Healy Engaged To Gabbriette Bechtel

The 1975 frontman Matty Healy and his girlfriend Gabbriette Bechtel recently announced they have gotten engaged.

"MARRYING THE 1975 IS VERY BRAT," Bechtel captioned a post that featured photos of herself wearing the engagement ring - a black gem surrounded by smaller diamonds. She tagged Healy's Instagram account as well.

Healy's mother, actress Denise Welch, confirmed the news on the "Loose Women" chat show.

"I obviously have known for a few weeks that Matty got engaged ... They went over to see their friends Charli and George in New York [last night] and I woke up this morning to the fact they've put it on Instagram. Instagram official ... he's got engaged to Gabriella Bechtel - Gabbriette she's known as. Black diamond; he had it made for her," she said on the U.K. chat show. "I couldn't be more thrilled. We couldn't be happier - she is everything I would want in a daughter-in-law. I'm thrilled."

Healy and Bechtel were first spotted together in New York City last September and were snapped together a few days later at an event in Brooklyn.

"He came to L.A. and we've been in love ever since," Bechtel said earlier this year, adding that the two often order takeout and play Fortnite in bed.

Alice Cooper Launches Another Satirical Campaign For President

Alice Cooper Launches Another Satirical Campaign For President

Alice Cooper has launched another campaign for President of the United States. As usual, this time too is satirical.

The rock star has launched an official website (www.aliceforpresident.com) and shared a short campaign video explaining why he should be elected as the head of the nation.

"Well, I'm Alice Cooper, and I'm a troubled man for troubled times. I have absolutely no idea what to do, so I should fit right in," he says in the video.

Fans can sign up to receive campaign updates and purchase t-shirts.

Cooper had been running satirical presidential campaigns for every U.S. Presidential election since he released the chart-topping track "Elected," the debut single from his sixth album Billion Dollar Babies, in 1972.

"I'm a troubled man for troubled times," is Cooper's campaign slogan for 2024.

His campaign slogan for the last election was, "I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing."

He satirically ran for president in 2016 as the candidate of the Wild Party.
