Shut Up and Rock -- 4/2/13

Apr 02, 2013 -- 7:30am

You spent so much time thinking about if you could that you never even stopped to consider if you should.

  • Queens of the Stone Age are gearing up for their new album by performing at Lollapalooza in Sao Paulo, Brazil, including a new tune called "My God is the Sun," which is likely from their upcoming album ...Like Clockwork.  You can actually hear the song on their website right now.  The new stuff is set to drop sometime in June on their new independent label, Matador.
  • After a seven year hiatus, Garbage released Not Your Kind of People last year.  Will it take that long for another new album from the group?  Shirley Manson says, "not likely."  Evidently, most of the band's troubles came from dealing with the music industry itself, and Manson's now suggesting that there could be more material coming as soon as 2014.
  • No surprises here:  after the massive opening weekend success of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Paramount is already in the planning stages of a third film for the franchise.  So far, the sequel's on track to make around $400 million in theaters worldwide, and if DVD sales are comparable to the original, it'll be even more profitable.
  • Speaking of sequels, Hot Tub Time Machine is getting one.  Yup.  It's unlikely that John Cusack will be involved, but the other stars--Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clarke Duke--are all in talks to return.  The original was a surprise hit with a $64 million take in theaters and doing even better on home video.
  • Although Sony has only confirmed the Playstation 4 for North American release by the end of the year, a recent conference call with a Gamestop executive revealed that the system will likely be available worldwide by the holidays.  The only other new information about the console is that the controller will be able to charge while the PS4 is in standby mode.  Finally, a feature worthy of noting!...that the XBox 360 has had since its inception.  Oops.
  • With THQ pushing daisies, who will take over the Darksiders IP?  Probably Crytek, who plan to bid on the franchise between now and the 15th as THQ's assets are auctioned off.  After all, most of Crytek is the Vigil team that created the game in the first place.

'Til Hump Day, freaks and geeks...ROCK!
