Daily Riot Fest RoundupMonday, August 21st, 2017
Action Bronson just revealed cover artwork and track listing for Blue Chips 7000, the new album he’s dropping on our heads this Friday. You can peep the artwork and track listing, as well as listen to this new album joint with Rick Ross called “9-24-7000,” all from the friendly confines of the Daily Riot Fest Roundup.
NIN.com has revealed that Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ scored The Vietnam War, Ken Burns’ new 10-part documentary series about the nightmarish quagmire, and they’ll release the music via two companion soundtracks on September 15th. Nine Inch Nails will commemorate the release that day by headlining Riot Fest. The Vietnam War begins airing on PBS on September 17th.
In addition to the score, the soundtracks will feature 38 tracks from the era’s most important artists, such as The Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and many more. Here’s the cover artwork!
Weezer has revealed the title and cover of their new album, which comes out on October 27th. Due to its lack of a dominant color in the artwork, we’re not sure what the masses will be calling Pacific Daydream, but we’ll throw down the gauntlet here and call it The Space Album. Or, Pacific Daydream if you’re nasty.
Anti-Flag‘s new album, American Fall, comes out on November 3rd on Spinefarm Records. Check out the new video for the song “American Attraction!”
Radar State is one of the newest bands to play Riot Fest this year, it being one of their first ever shows and all. Tonight at 7:00pm CDT, the band will teach you all about the three second rule as they host the Radar State Eclipse Party on Facebook Live. Find out if there’s more to these guys than being “members of The Get Up Kids, The Anniversary, and The Gadjits/Architects.” Man, weren’t The Anniversary great at Riot Fest last year? We hope they come back to Chicago someday. Sorry, we digress—check out the trailer for the Radar State Eclipse Party!
Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates have been globetrotting with big-ass smiles on their faces as they continue to tick items off of their collective “Fuck It!” list. Film a concert at the ancient Acropolis in Athens, Greece? Tick! Fly the whole operation out to Chicago to play one show at a legendary rock club that you could sell out for a month straight? Tick! Surprise the crowd at your singer’s birthday party at the Forum in LA (throwing a birthday party for yourself in an arena is a tick in and of itself) by inviting David Lee Roth to sing Van Halen songs with you? Tick! Rickroll Westboro Baptist Church trolls outside of your concert in Kansas City? Tick! And perhaps the latter was inspiration for the band inviting the man himself, Rick Astley, to sing “Never Gonna Give You Up” live on stage with them the other night at Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival, in the interest of trolling their fans. Watch the hilarity ensue below, and don’t even bother trying to guess what these goofballs will do next.

Same, Best Coast. Same.
I really relate to this eclipse because I too want attention but don’t want anyone to look directly at me.

When good Brendan Kelly gives bad advice.
for practice, i just looked straight at the whole, unobstructed sun. Not blind. I think you’ll be fine.
