BMGFollowing last Friday's teaser, A Perfect Circle has officially premiered "The Doomed," the first song to be released from the band's forthcoming new album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2004's eMOTIVe. The heavy, political track is available now via digital platforms.

"Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe," says frontman Maynard James Keenan. "A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder."

"Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment," adds guitarist Billy Howerdel. "We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we're on."

The new album is due out in 2018. In the meantime, A Perfect Circle will launch a fall North American tour this Saturday, October 21 at the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California.

Credit: Jeff ForneyEarlier this month, Avenged Sevenfold announced that a deluxe version of their album The Stage, featuring a host of covers and live tracks, will arrive on December 15. That's a whole lot more notice than the band gave us for the original release of The Stage, which arrived by surprise overnight last October.

Reflecting on the surprise release strategy a year later, frontman M. Shadows feels that his band "definitely dropped the ball in terms of the casual fan."

"Do I think it was a good strategy for the casual fan? No, it was horrible for the casual fan," Shadows tells ABC Radio. "Most casual fans don't even know about it, or they've written it off as...'Why would you release a record secretly? It must not be good.' And we weren't expecting that at all."

The Stage debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 with 72,000 copies sold -- not exactly the barnstorming numbers A7X was hoping for, but still solid for a rock band in 2016. And while they might not have converted any casual fans, Shadows was happy to see that The Stage really connected with the hardcore Avenged Sevenfold follower.

"I haven't seen a more excited core group of fans...ever," Shadows remembers of The Stage release week. "So I think in terms of solidifying our core fan base, like, the fans that really are engaged with Avenged Sevenfold, it couldn't have been better for them."

Still, Shadows probably wouldn't do the surprise release over again.

"If we were to do it over, I would've tried to do something that encompasses the casual fan that's not living and breathing what bands like us are doing," he says. 

Avenged Sevenfold will launch a North American tour in support of The Stage in January.

Loma Vista RecordingsMarilyn Manson has another top 10 album on his hands. The shock-rocker's new effort Heaven Upside Down arrives at number eight on this week's Billboard 200 with a total of 35,000 equivalent album units sold.

Heaven Upside Down gives Manson a total of eight top 10 albums on the Billboard 200. He's also topped the chart twice: once with 1998's Mechanical Animals and again with 2003's The Golden Age of Grotesque.

Manson is currently recovering after a large gun-shaped prop fell on him during a show in New York City September 30. With his leg in a cast, the musician rescheduled his October tour dates for next January and February. He's scheduled to return to the stage November 5 to play Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.

ABC/Randy HolmesProphets of Rage have shared the video for "Strength in Numbers," a track from the rap-rock supergroup's self-titled debut album. The clip is streaming now via the band's Facebook.

In the video, the Prophets show their support for the NFL players who kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality -- a movement started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"ALMOST anything can be built or toppled with a collective force," says vocalist Chuck D. "A movement is never about an individual. On the opposition [to] Colin Kaepernick in today's sports world, we ask 'is it the KNEE or is it The NEGRO?'"

The video also includes nature footage of animals working together overcome obstacles, exemplifying the phrase "Strength in Numbers."

Prophets of Rage will play the Voodoo and Ozzfest festivals later this fall, and they'll launch a European tour in November.

Marc Broussely/RedfernsLike an avalanche coming down the mountain, Butthole Surfers are planning their return. The band, perhaps best known for their 1996 hit "Pepper," tells Rolling Stone they've begun work on their ninth studio album, their first since 2001's Weird Revolution.

"It has never been done. No one has put out a decent record 35 year[s years into their career]," says frontman Gibby Haynes. "Well, except for Johnny Cash. But we're not Johnny Cash. It's gonna be a tough road to do a record that's presentable. It's really gonna be hard...but, given that, looking forward to it!"

The new album will feature founding members Haynes and guitarist Paul Leary, plus longtime drummer and bassist King Coffey and Jeff Pinkus, respectively.

Speaking about the sound of the new material, Coffey says, "It's like noise with...just throbbing beats to it."

"We're not in a position like a lot of other bands," says Haynes. "Like, take Metallica. God bless 'em, I love Metallica. But all they gotta do is put out another Metallica record. The same thing with Foo Fighters. That's all they gotta do is put out another Foo Fighters record. 'Cause, I mean, they've got a sound. Or, they've got a song."

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," he continues. "But, I guess we're just continually broken and in a struggle to fix it. So, it's gonna be a wild one."

The new Butthole Surfers album is due out next summer.

Stephen J. Cohen/Getty ImagesFive Finger Death Punch has reached a settlement in their lawsuit with record label Prospect Park and former manager Jeff Kwatinetz, Variety reports.

"The band Five Finger Death Punch and its label, Prospect Park, have resolved their dispute and differences," reads a statement provided to the publication.

The lawsuit dates back to April 2016, when Prospect Park sued Five Finger Death Punch for alleged breach of contract. The suit stated that FFDP had begun recording the fourth album of a four-album contract with the label, despite the contract stipulating that the band must wait nine months after the release of their last record, September 2015's Got Your Six.

In the suit, Prospect Park accused Five Finger of "shamelessly attempting to cash in before the anticipated downfall of their addicted bandmate," referring to frontman Ivan Moody, who's publicly struggled with substance abuse. At the time, the band called Prospect Park's lawsuit "the latest in a long line of exploitative and abusive bullying tactics." They later sued the label to be released from their contract.

In their statement to Variety, Five Finger Death Punch says they and Prospect Park will release a greatest hits collection with two new songs this December, and a brand-new album in 2018. 

"The band is very proud of the new record and looks forward to releasing it and playing for its fans," the statement reads.

In May 2016, FFDP announced they'd be signing with Rise Records following the completion of their contract with Prospect Park.

Five Finger Death Punch will play the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California this weekend. They'll embark on a European tour in November.

ABC/Andrea McCallinThe legend of Dave Grohl continues grow with the Foo Fighters frontman's latest act of kindness.

A young fan named Sabryn saw the Foos live in Washington, D.C., last week, despite having to walk with crutches due to an injury. When she met Grohl backstage, the musician noticed the crutches, so he brought out his own orthopedic surgeon, who helped him recover from his broken leg.

"Dave brought [the doctor] out once he saw that I was on crutches, and that's when his doctor mentioned that I was supposed to wear a shoe with my brace," Sabryn tells Alternative Press. "I told him that my shoes didn't fit over it because it's pretty big and my shoes are kinda small. So Dave said, 'You need one of my big high tops!' and I laughed it off."

But Grohl wasn't kidding -- he ran back to his dressing room and grabbed an extra shoe to give to her.

"I wore it for the rest of the night after Dave told me to put it on," Sabryn says. "It's definitely one of the coolest things to ever happen, and probably the funniest."

Dave and Foo Fighters are currently on tour in support of their new album, Concrete and Gold.

Michael Tran/FilmMagicA 2005 red carpet interview with Courtney Love has resurfaced online following numerous allegations of sexual harassment or assault against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

In the clip, posted by TMZ, Love is asked what advice she has for young women moving to Hollywood. After hesitating -- "I'll get libeled if I say it," she says -- the musician and actress warns, "If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons [hotel], don't go."

In response to the video resurfacing, Love tweeted, "Although I wasn't one of his victims, I was eternally banned by [talent agency] CAA for speaking out against #HarveyWeinstein #rape."

Weinstein's been accused of sexual misconduct by a growing list of women, including actresses Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. As more women continue to speak out about their experiences with Weinstein and sexual abuse in the film industry, Bjork now says that she was sexually harassed by a "Danish director" while working on a movie.

"It was extremely clear to me when I walked into the actresses profession that my humiliation and role as a lesser sexually harassed being was the norm and set in stone with the director and a staff of dozens who enabled it and encouraged it," Bjork wrote in a Facebook post.

"When I turned the director down repeatedly he sulked and punished me and created for his team an impressive net of illusion where I was framed as the difficult one," she added.

Since the filmmaker was characterized as a "Danish director," many believe Bjork was referring to Lars von Trier, with whom she worked on the 2000 film Dancer in the Dark. An assistant for von Trier told Rolling Stone, "Lars declines the accusations Bjork has made, but doesn't wish to comment any further."

ABC/Fred WatkinsOver the summer, after a chance encounter at a Japanese music festival, Foo Fighters and Rick Astley joined forces to perform the '80s pop star's signature hit "Never Gonna Give You Up" together. Having united onstage again in London, Dave Grohl is ready for Astley to join his band.

"Rick is the man," Grohl tells NME. "The seventh Foo Fighter. He's such a sweetheart."

Grohl adds, "I love that he gets nervous before playing. He's Rick Astley! It's like he's Muhammad Ali! You just wouldn't be nervous, but he's such a good guy."

The Foos also paid tribute to Astley with a performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up" during their "Carpool Karaoke" appearance on The Late Late Show.

Foo Fighters are currently touring North America in support of their new album, Concrete and Gold.

Credit: Tim CadienteA Perfect Circle is up to something.

The enigmatic band -- as is the case with most of Maynard James Keenan's projects -- has shared a cryptic teaser on their social media. The post features APC's logo along with the phrase "The Doomed."

For those starved for new A Perfect Circle material -- the band hasn't released a new album since 2004's eMOTIVe -- hopefully "The Doomed" refers to a new song, or even a new album. The band has been working on the follow-up to eMOTIVe, and they debuted two new songs on their tour earlier this year: "Feathers" and "Hourglass."

A Perfect Circle will embark on a fall North American tour beginning October 21 at Sacramento's Aftershock festival.

Loma Vista RecordingsMarilyn Manson has postponed and rescheduled the remainder of his October tour dates after suffering an onstage injury during a show in New York City September 30. The new dates begin January 10 in Phoenix and conclude February 16 in Sayreville, New Jersey. Visit MarilynManson.com for ticket info.

In the middle of the New York City show, during Manson's cover of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," a large pistol-shaped prop tipped over and landed on him. In an interview with Yahoo, Manson says the "pain was excruciating."

"I only recently watched the video of it," Manson says of the accident. "I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly."

"I wasn't trying to climb [the prop]," he adds. "It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn't get out the way in time. I'm not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places."  The fibula's the smaller of the two bones in the lower leg, the other being the tibia, aka the shin bone.

Manson's currently at home recovering with his leg in a cast.  He's set to return to the stage November 5 to play Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, after which he'll kick off a European tour November 12 in Helsinki, Finland. In the meantime, Manson does feel frustrated that he can't be on the road, especially since his new album, Heaven Upside Down, was released just last week.

"With a cast on my leg, it's hard to talk about the excitement of the tour," he says. "It got cut off right as I was about to put it into second gear. But I'll be back there really shortly and it's going to be as exciting as it was starting out."

Here are Manson's rescheduled tour dates:

1/10 -- Phoenix, AZ, Van Buren
1/12 -- Las Vegas, NV, House of Blues
1/13 -- Las Vegas, NV, House of Blues
1/16 -- Oakland, CA, Fox Theatre

Credit: Steve KerosRed Hot Chili Peppers have joined the lineup for the 2017 Stand Up for Heroes benefit, taking place November 7 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The annual event raises money for injured veterans and their families.

Stand Up for Heroes is, for the most part, a comedy show: This year's event will feature performances from John Oliver, Jon Stewart, Conan O'Brien, Trevor Noah, Hasan Minhaj and John Mulaney. The Chili Peppers are no strangers to comedy, though -- remember Chad Smith's drum battle with Will Ferrell?

"The Red Hot Chili Peppers bring so much energy to the stage and are one of my favorite bands," says Bob Woodruff, ABC News correspondent and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which is co-presenting the event. "We're humbled that they're joining us at Stand Up for Heroes to honor those who've served."

Sacred Bones Records/The Null CorporationTrent Reznor is celebrating Friday the 13th with a tribute to one of the most iconic horror movies of all time. The Nine Inch Nails frontman and his frequent collaborator, Atticus Ross, have shared a cover of the theme from John Carpenter's classic 1978 film, Halloween. You can download the track now via digital outlets.

"I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978," says Reznor. "We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the s*** genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it's your fault that I turned out the way I did."

"Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' version of "Halloween" does amazing justice to the original," adds Carpenter. "I'm impressed." Carpenter, by the way, composed the theme himself back in the day.

A collection of newly recorded versions Carpenter's movie themes, titled Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, will be released on October 20.
