Paul Masvidal (CYNIC, DEATH) co-produced and played guitar on the four-song EP accompanying actor Jim Carrey‘s first children’s book, “How Roland Rolls”.

The tracks “Everything & Nothing”, “Hungry”, “I’m All Yours” and “Keep On Roland” feature the actor singing with his daughter, Jane.

A seven-minute video clip featuring footage of Masvidal working with Carrey in the recording studio can be seen below.

Released on September 24 and published by Some Kind Of Garden Media, “How Roland Rolls” is dedicated to Carrey‘s 3-year-old grandson, Jackson, and features “cinematic” illustrations by Rob Nason (“Anastasia”, “Thumbelina”).

“I wrote ‘How Roland Rolls’ specifically as a way for parents and grandparents to engage with the children in quality together-time,” Carrey wrote in a message on the picture book’s web site.

“Not only will the message of the story help them feel connected, worthwhile, and a part of something vast and grand … the very act of adults spending time simply to be with them, and only with them, will pay off in an experience of fulfillment that’s truly beyond compare.”

Jackson‘s father is Alex Santana, the singer of the Los Angeles-based death metal band BLOOD MONEY, to whom Jane Carrey was married for only a year before the couple split in 2010.

Jim Carrey was rumored to be to be a fan of the death metal band CANNIBAL CORPSE, which made a cameo appearance in Carrey‘s 1994 movie “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”. However, in a July 10, 2009 posting on BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Santana himself put the rumor to rest, writing, “For the record, Jim hates death metal… He’d never heard of CANNIBAL until doin’ that movie. Trust me, it’s the first thing I asked him when we met.”

The Dude of the 106.5 KWHL radio station conducted an interview with Pennsylvanian rockers HALESTORM before their August 23 concert at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer. You can now watch the chat below.

HALESTORM will release a new EP called “ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVerRs eP” on October 15. The six-song EP follows up 2011’s “ReAniMate”, which featured the band’s renditions of songs by SKID ROW, GUNS N’ ROSES, LADY GAGA and THE BEATLES. The new collection will feature tracks originally written and recorded by JUDAS PRIEST, DAFT PUNK, AC/DC, PAT BENATAR, FLEETWOOD MAC and MARILYN MANSON.

The Pulse Of Radio asked Lzzy Hale if the band had ever been denied permission to record a song for one of these EPs. “We were denied after the fact, actually, on the last cover EP,” she said. “We thought we had gotten approval for ‘Out Ta Get Me’ by GUNS N’ ROSES, and apparently everybody had approved it but Axl [Rose] — but nobody told him. So we had recorded it, we released it, and then he found out and I guess — what was the stipulation? We, like, could do it digitally but not physically, which I thought was kind of weird.”

Hale said about the new EP, “Like our first ‘ReAniMate’ EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves. We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real.”

HALESTORM won the Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” for the track “Love Bites (So Do I)”, from the band’s second album, “The Strange Case Of…”

The latest single from the 2012 release is “Here’s To Us”, which was also featured on a February 2012 episode of “Glee”.

HALESTORM is currently on a North American tour that ends in early October, after which the band will head to Europe. But they’ll be back in late November for one more round of North American shows to finish out the year.

Fuse News recently conducted an interview with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS guitarist Dean DeLeo and singer Chester Bennington. You can now watch the report below.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS will release a new five-song EP called “High Rise” on October 8. The disc will be the second release featuring LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington following current single “Out Of Time”, which emerged last spring and went to No. 1 on the rock chart.

“In terms of style, when the DeLeo brothers [Dean and bassist Robert] get in the studio and start writing, they have a very unique way of putting chords together and structures and the type of chord progressions they put together,” Bennington said of writing process in the new STP. “So, in that sense, it’s gonna be undeniably the sound of STP — I mean, they’re the heart and soul of the band. Naturally, I’m not [former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer] Scott [Weiland], so I’m not gonna think of the same melodies, I’m not gonna think of the same lyrical content and such, so in that sense, naturally, there’s gonna be a difference in terms of how I interpret what the band puts together musically. I think that’s one of the reasons why we’re so eager to get the [new STONE TEMPLE PILOTS] EP out, because we want people to hear the new direction and feel the vibe of the new music. Because there’s definitely a vibe in that EP that is fresh and it’s new but it still feels very STP.”

He added: “When we started writing, the ideas came so fast; every single day, it semed like there was four or five things that we were all bringing in and contributing in terms of new songs. We could have easily spent three more months on this thing and had a full-length record out. There’s enough material there for us to do that and start getting into the next one. So in terms of the amount of creativity that’s been going on, it’s very healthy.”

STP fired Scott Weiland in February after reuniting with him in 2010 for a series of tours and one self-titled album. The band had previously been on hiatus since 2002, primarily due to the singer’s struggles with drugs and alcohol.

The group sued Weiland in May, accusing him of using the band’s name to advance his solo career, while claiming that his poor performances, late arrivals, and addiction struggles harmed the band’s career.

Weiland has countersued, claiming that the band cannot use the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS name without him.
