Music News: Week of July 11, 2011

Tuesday sees the release of Yours Truly, the debut album by the band Sublime With Rome, which is the rhythm section of the band Sublime joined by 21-year-old singer/guitarist Rome. All sacrilegious name-checking aside, the album is produced by mega-talented Butthole Surfers bassist Paul Leary.

Tuesday also sees the 25th Anniversary re-release of Megadeth's Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? and REM's Life's Rich Pageant. Peace Sells features a bonus 13-track live CD while Pageant features a bonus 19-track CD comprised of demos the band recorded in Athens, GA.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers release their 15th album on Tuesday. Entitled 2120 South Michigan Ave., the album is an ode to Chess Records and features guest appearances by Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter and other Chess greats.

While details are scarce, it seems that former Smiths singer Morrissey was biten by a dog and required medical treatment in Sweden, though the incident happened in England. Morrissey is in the midst of a European tour.

Michael "Würzel" Burston, guitarist for Motorhead between 1984 and 1996, died on Sunday of congestive heart failure. He is best known for the blazing guitar work that he contributed to the albums Orgasmatron, 1916 and March ör Die.

Rebecca Black, best known for the internet sensation "Friday", will release her second single "My Moment" on Monday, July 18th via her YouTube channel. The song was co-written by Justin Bieber collaborator Brandon "Blue" Hamilton.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to release their new album, I'm With You, on August 8th through Warner Brothers Records. The album was produced by Rick Rubin and will be the first RHCP album to feature new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer.

The Flaming Lips and Weezer will quite literally share the concert stage together for two New York-area shows, the first being July 28 at Holmdel, New Jersey's PNC Bank Arts Center, and the following night at Wantagh, New York's Jones Beach Theater. The general premise is that each band will take turns performing 2 or 3 songs.
