Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe remains incarcerated in Prague since June 27th on manslaughter charges, but may be a step closer to getting out on bail. A Czech court dismissed the prosecutor's efforts to deny the singer bail, but at the same time doubled his bail so that he'll have to come up with another $200,000 to get out. Blythe recently gave his first interview since being arrested for allegedly causing a fan's death in 2010. Blythe said he doesn't recall the incident at all and denies having anything to do with the fan's death, adding that he is "getting along very well with the other inmates." Blythe was also encouraged by a visit from his wife, and said he holds no grudges against the city of Prague itself. (Noisecreep)

Ticket prices will range from $500 to $9,000 per person, and the four-day tours leave from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on December 16th for the Bahamas and the 19th for Jamaica. (The Los Angeles Times)

Jack White has released a new music video for "Freedom At 21," the latest single from his debut solo album Blunderbuss. The clip, directed by Hype Williams, features White being captured in a speeding car by a female police officer in tiny shorts and thigh-high leather boots. He lands in jail with an equally attractive cellmate, and the two quickly break out and engage in another high-speed car chase with tragic consequences. Blunderbuss debuted on the Billboard album chart at Number One in May, giving White the first chart-topping disc of his career. (Billboard)
