Glassjaw will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Worship & Tribute on July 8th with a show at Irving Plaza in New York City. Those lucky enough to be on the East Coast in July can pick up a commemorative ticket bundle, which features an exclusive hat and ticket, here. Better hurry, though – it’s limited to 93 and will not be reprinted!

Update: Well, that sold out fast.

Rumor has it that Deftones will be entering the studio in a few days to record a brand-spankin’-new album. In a very recent interview with Chilean news outlet La Tercera, lead vocalist Chino Moreno bore all and announced the unexpected: a new album will be ready and released by early fall.

This is officially the most anticipated album of the year. Get excited.

Oh, and send some love Chi’s way. He needs it.

First Soundgarden Song in 15 Years, Hear it Here!

Man, has it really been 15 years since we’ve heard a new Soundgarden song? It sure as hell seems like it, but damn does time fly.

With The Avengers releasing in exactly one month from today, “Live to Rise” is the first single off of the soundtrack.

Sadly, it doesn’t seem all that impressive. I guess that’s how most comebacks go, though.

Let us know what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for more coverage on the upcoming Avengers release.
