Rihanna Returns 'Anti' To No. 1

3/22/2016 10:20am EDT
Rihanna Returns 'Anti' To No. 1 On Billboard 200
Well, that was unexpected! What specifically was ‘unexpected’ you ask? Why Rihanna’s return to the top of the Billboard 200 with Anti. Anti initially landed at no. 27 on the Billboard, ascending to no. 1 the following week. After residing inside the top five throughout its chart stay, Rihanna takes advantage of a slow sales week – in both streams and pure sales – to reclaim her perch.

Sigh, it’s too bad that the numbers aren’t nearly as sexy as her “Kiss It Better” song from Anti. Rihanna only impacts to the tune of 54,000 units! According to Billboard, only a sliver of that total was pure...

3 Doors Down’s 'Us And The Night' Leads Albums To Check Out
Ah, it’s the second week of March and you know what that means – more new music! No, week two isn’t quite as “star-studded” as March’s two forthcoming weeks, but there’s definitely some worthwhile new music to check out. 3 Doors Down lead the new music charge with the long-awaited Us And The Night. They are joined by a frontman gone solo and “metal heads” among others.

1) 3 Doors Down, Us And The Night (Republic)

Rock band 3 Doors Down return with their first new album in nearly five years. Us And The Night is the follow-up to 2011’s Time Of My Life, and album that debuted at no. 3 on t...

Killswitch Engage Seek New Singer After Dropping Howard Jones

Killswitch Engage
Rockers Killswitch Engage have parted ways with frontman Howard Jones after nine years.

Jones was temporarily replaced by "All That Remains" singer Phil Labonte for dates on the band's 2010 tour, after the group told fans he needed "to get himself better."

And now it appears Jones won't be back.

A statement posted on the band's website reads, "We have decided to continue on without Howard Jones... We love Howard and are thankful for the nine years that we've had him in the band. Out of respect for everyone involved, we will not be discussing the specific reasons behind this decision.


The Learning Curve: A Mix Of Light And Loud

3/31/2009 10:00am EDT
This time around the Learning Curve is mixing things up a bit, going from heavy to light and touching on almost everything in-between along the way. This is perhaps one of the more diversified columns I've put together but that doesn't mean the bands are any less talented.

Seriously though, this week has something for everyone. From frenzied post-hardcore like Stiletto Formal and La Dispute to party all night electronica like Innerpartysystem, to sounds like up-and-coming rock act Zillion and even a bit of hardcore with the next big thing in Buffalo, His Name Was Yesterday.

Oh by ...

Have You Heard? Super Killer Fire

Super Killer Fire
Boasting a concrete modern rock sound influenced by such bands as Korn, Pantera and Killswitch Engage, as well as a new album, "The Test", produced by Erik Nelson at Eclipse Studios (Mudvayne, V Shaped Mind), the Danville, Illinois group Super Killer Fire are creating a buzz all their own, and seem to be gaining fans by the day.

Sure, they might refer to their hometown as a 'hole,' but it is where they got together as a band.

"It all started out when Jermery (drums) and Rich (guitar) worked at the same place," said singer Brandon Taylor. "Once they realized they were both musici...
