Ghost B.C. (May 31)

Swedish occult hard rockers Ghost B.C. released an absolute winner of a track called "Cirice" last weekend. The song will be included on Meliora, the band's forthcoming third studio album. Hitting stores on August 21, Meliora was produced by Klas Åhlund, which is an interesting choice considering the fellow Swede has also worked with pop artists like Robyn, Katy Perry and Britney Spears during his career.

Tool (June 2)

Earlier this week, Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifier) underwent total hip replacement surgery. "Years of foot stomping left me with no cushion in my right hip," explained the singer in a Facebook post. Keenan also revealed that he's already walking and will continue to pursue his brown belt in jiu jitsu. Sadly, the singer's statement made no mention of a new Tool album.
