Whitesnake have put together a new video for their classic single “Here I Go Again” for their 30th Anniversary reissue. The clip features all kinds of footage from performances during the band’s support of their 1987 self-titled album. Watch it here.

Lullwater have started working on their third studio album. According to a new update, the group is working with producer Jakob Hermann while aiming for a March 2018 street date. Singer John Strickland says, “This album is much more personal – we’ve had a tumultuous two years since we released Revival and that is reflected in the music. Not that the songs will be all doom and gloom. But they’ll definitely convey a depth that will expose us in a way that our fans haven’t seen yet.”

– Former Faith No More frontman Chuck Mosley is heading back on the road this fall for the “Reintroduce Yourself” tour. The trek resumes tonight in Winchester, Va., with dates booked through Oct. 15 in Toledo, Ohio. See dates and details here.
