Day in Rock Report for 07/07/2022

The Gaslight Anthem have shared "Howl (Live at Crossroads: 6/18/22)," a performance video that was filmed last month at the band's surprise return to the stage for the first time in four years.

"Howl (Live at Crossroads: 6/18/22)" - which marked the opening song of The Gaslight Anthem's secret set on what was supposed to have been the final night of frontman Brian Fallon's three-show solo run at Garwood, NJ's Crossroads - captures the shock and elation of the sold-out crowd of 200 fans in attendance as they realized the momentous occasion they were a part of.

Blondie are streaming, "I Love You Honey, Give Me a Beer," a previously forgotten, original demo for the song that became the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers' classic, country-inflected "Go Through It."

Initially tracked in 1980 and possibly written for Alan Rudolph's Roadie, a film that marked the band's collective foray onto the big screen, the recording offers the latest look into the breadth of rediscovered history and multi-genre, musical treasure that is mapped out on the forthcoming box set, Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982.

Norma Jean have premiered a music video for their new single, "Spearmint Revolt". The track comes from their forthcoming album, "Deathrattle Sing For Me", which will hit stores on August 12th.

Vocalist Cory Brandan had this to say about the song, "There is no editing stage. Every edit is a new creation, and some songs write themselves. This song was thrown out, retrieved, reworked, and thrown out again a few times. After almost abandoning it completely, it wasn't the song that needed to change - but our view of what kind of song it truly was. (read more)

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has released a music video for his debut solo single, "London Bridge", which is the first taste of a new project that he is releasing via Cooking Vinyl.

A-Z recently released "The Machine Gunner" from their forthcoming self-titled album, and to celebrate we asked Mark Zonder (Fates Warning/Warlord) to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

As with A-Z (Alder-Zonder) being a new band I thought it was important that the first single that anyone heard be a good old fashion, kick in you in teeth, driving song full of energy, great chorus and tasty playing.
I thought it was important not to come out with a song that might have people making a snap judgment about the band. If we came out with something on the prog side people would assume it was going to be a prog band and might dismiss it. A good old fashion arena rock tune was an obvious choice. (continue)
