The Good, The Bad and the Queen, the act which calls Blur front man Damon Albarn and Clash bassist Paul Simonon members, will have its debut single in stores shortly. The band's "Kingdoom of Doom" is set to hit stores in the United Kindgom Oct. 30 in vinyl and CD single format. No word on an American release for the single, or the band's London-themed album, has been revealed ...

Modest Mouse will have its new album in stores just in time to stuff Christmas stockings. The act's We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank is set to hit stores Dec. 19 from Epic Records. The album, which follows up 2004's Good News for People Who Love Bad News (Epic), features the first appearance of the band's new guitarist, Johnny Marr.

Keane put American tour plans on hold as front man Tom Chaplin checked into a drug rehabilitation clinic. The act had planned to hit North America to support its latest, Under the Iron Sea (2006, Interscope) this fall, but have put the tour on ice as Chaplain retreats from the world of rock'n'roll to conquer problems with drugs and alcohol. "I've been having to deal with an increasing problem with drink and drugs, and the time has come to get the professional help I need to sort myself out," Chaplain said in a statement. "I feel desperately disappointed to be letting down our fans, but I want to get myself right now so that I can be back on the road for the rest of the year." ...

The band went online to fire the opening salvos in a battle of semantics and fight rumors that it had split up, posting a picture of three of its members, including Cuomo, at a table together along with a statement saying the power-pop act hadn't thrown in the towel. "Take those 'Weezer Split?' headlines and place them firmly into the 'Don't believe the hype' bin," the band posted on its website. "And have yourself a fine afternoon now." That's news to most of the world. In July, Cuomo told MTV News that his act was on hiatus after a miserable Make Believe (2005, Geffen) received a lukewarm welcome from fans and critics. The band didn't reveal any future plans to go with the "it's not a breakup" post ...

Beck's leaving the art direction for his new album cover up to fans. The cover for his upcoming album, The Information, which hits stores Oct. 3 from Interscope Records, will literally be a blank canvas for fans to decorate.

Singer/songwriter Tommy Guerrero will have another album in stores in a little more than a month.
