In addition to the big stories we covered today, Wire-to-Wire provides you with some of the other key rock and metal news items from March 30, 2018:

- While it may seem like a given thanks to Stone Temple Pilots' resurgence and quickly filling tour schedule, bassist Robert DeLeo has confirmed he won't be rejoining Hollywood Vampires for their touring this year. DeLeo stepped in after Duff McKagan's Guns N' Roses commitments took him away from Hollywood Vampires. In our recent interview with Matt Sorum, the drummer also revealed he had stepped away from the group and he reiterated that in a social media post of his own. It is not know who will round out the rhythm section when the band returns to the road in May.

- All may not be initially what it seems and that's somewhat unsettling in Failure's brand new video for "Dark Speed." The clip, starring Blade Runner 2049 actor David Dastmalchian, centers on a man seemingly out of sorts in his home until he gets ready in his "attire" for the day.  Watch the video, directed by the band's Ken Andrews, right here and look for the song on the group's In the Future EP, which dropped today (March 30).

- Light the Torch's Revival album hits stores today (March 30) and to celebrate the occasion, the band has issued a new lyric video for the powerful new song "The Safety of Disbelief." Watch and listen here.

- With the release date for Anthrax's live DVD, Kings Among Scotland, nearing, the band has issued their first official trailer for the set. Watch here and look for the set arriving April 27.

- Guitar great Gus G. has just unleashed a psychedelic new lyric video for the hard charging new track "Mr. Manson." Take a look here and you can find the song on Gus' new solo disc Fearless, due April 20.
