Daughtry have released a post-apocalyptic video for their new gritty single "Artificial." Watch it now.

"'Artificial' is about the potential nightmare that AI could become and the idea that everything and everyone could eventually be replaced, essentially to perfection, and rendered obsolete," Daughtry explains. "However, the heart and soul of humanity and the ability to feel love, sadness, and compassion can never be replaced. While there are plenty of applications where AI can improve our lives and assist in many areas of creativity, I feel it's imperative that we find a way to protect our musicians, actors, writers, and all creative outlets from being destroyed."

The track follows "It's Not Over" "Heavy Is the Crown" "World on Fire" and "Changes Are Coming" from their 2021 album 'Dearly Beloved'. In 2023 Daughtry released a cover of Journey's "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" alongside Halestorm's Lzzy Hale.

Motley Crue’s Mick Mars retires John 5 Officially Takes Lead Guitar Duties

dfvgh

Motley Crue have confirmed that they have recruited John 5 to replace Mick Mars, after the founding guitarist revealed that he is retiring from touring due to health concerns.

"While change is never easy, we accept Mick's decision to retire from the band due to the challenges with his health. We have watched Mick manage his Ankylosing Spondylitis for decades and he has always managed it with utmost courage and grace. To say 'enough is enough' is the ultimate act of courage. Mick's sound helped define Motley Crue from the minute he plugged in his guitar at our very first rehearsal together. The rest, as they say, is history. We'll continue to honor his musical legacy. We will carry out Mick's wish and continue to tour the world as planned in 2023. No doubt will it take an absolutely outstanding musician to fill Mick's shoes so we are grateful that our good friend, John 5 has agreed to come on board and join us moving forward. We'll see all you Crueheads out on the road!" -
Vince, Tommy & Nikki

"I'm honored to carry on Mick's legacy and am looking forward to playing these songs." - John 5

John 5, who recently vacated his post in Rob Zombie's band, has since taken on Mars' duties in the band. The new lineup will be hitting the road next year for The World Tour, a brand new coheadlining trek with Def Leppard that follows their successful Stadium Tour with Leppard and Poison this summer.
