Rex Sorgatz makes an interesting argument that "rare" media no longer exists.
With access to infinite bytes of media, describing a digital object as "rare" sticks out like a lumbering anachronism. YouTube - the official home of lumbering anachronisms - excels at these extraordinarily contradictory moments. Here, for instance, are the Beatles, performing a "VERY RARE" rendition of "Happy Birthday". That sonic obscurity has been heard 2.3 million times. And here is a "Rare Acoustic" version of Slash performing "Sweet Child O' Mine". Over 26 million have devoured this esoteric Axl-less morsel.

Frank Turner is eyeing a February release date for his next album.
When asked when to expect the next album, Turner replied: “February, I’ll put money on it. There’ll be 18 month world tour starting in January. We’re going to destroy the world in bitesize chunks.”

Sounds like the reunited Faith No More are working on new material.
The reunion thing was fun, but now it's time to get a little creative.

Rvivr are in the middle of recording a new EP:
This recording is exciting because we are taking a much different approach than on The Beauty Between. That was such a focused and intentional two-year process of writing and recording. Basically it took forever and lots and lots of hours. For this EP, we purposefully gave ourselves about a month to write and record. The whole thing will be a much quicker, spontaneous process. Practice is going well, we have 3 songs done so far.

Rob Zombie is working on a new movie titled 31 as well as a new album.
It sounds fuckin’ weird, man. That’s a really good thing. Right now I’m by myself in the studio; the rest of the band’s not here yet but, yeah, they’ll all come up here later. It’s going good. I’ll work on that for about a month and get as far as I can get. Then in July we have a little bit of a break where I’ll probably finish up the record, and then we have some more touring.

Communities Digital News conducted a great interview with Bill Stevenson. He mentions that the Descendents are working on a new album and that it's a priority for the band in the next few months. There's currently no plans for any new ALL recordings though.
We started on it. We’re not really far into it, but we’re making it a priority to kind of focus on it in the coming months.

AC/DC will start recording in May, despite Malcolm Young's debilitating health.
Speaking exclusively to the UK’s The Telegraph, he said: “We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver. We’re going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens, we’ll record it.”

The Story So Far are in the studio -- finishing their third album.

Update: Apparently the part about it being a new album was a joke. They're in the studio doing ... something, and will record a new full-length later this year.
