Credit: Alex LakeRadiohead has inspired the sound of countless bands, and now their influence has filtered down to the insect world.  The band has inspired the name of a new species of ant native to Amazonian Venezuela.

In a study from the Smithsonian Institution's Ant Lab, scientists Ana Ješovnik and Ted R. Schultz named the ant Sericomyrmex radioheadi.

"This species is named after the English rock band Radiohead as an acknowledgement of their longstanding efforts in environmental activism, especially in raising climate-change awareness," the study reads, adding that the name also comes "in honor of their music, which is an excellent companion during long hours at the microscope while conducting taxonomic revisions of ants."

If you'd like to learn all there is to know about S. radioheadi, you can read the entire study now via the science journal website ZooKeys. There's no mention of whether or not the ant feels like a creep...or a weirdo, for that matter.

Radiohead concluded their U.S. tour last week with their headlining set at Coachella.

Gabriel Olsen/FilmMagicPhoenix may be French, but the title of their next album's title is in Italian.

The band's first full-length effort in four years is called Ti Amo -- Italian for "I love you -- and will be released June 9.

Speaking with The New York Times, which revealed the new album news, guitarist Laurent Brancowitz says the album sounds like "summer and Italian discos," while also carrying a hint of darkness.

"I think the record came out of darkness, out of concern," says Daniel Glass, founder of Phoenix's record label, Glassnote. "But what’s resulted is this incredibly colorful record."

Ti Amo will be Phoenix's follow-up to their 2013 album Bankrupt! They'll kick off a North American tour in support of the album on May 12 in Miami.

ABC/Andrea McCallinAll mothers worry about their children, but when your kid is a rock star, that opens up a whole new ocean of things to be worried about.

For Virginia Grohl, she wasn't concerned that her son, Dave, might fall into a world of drugs or anything like that, but she did have one fear on her mind.

"I did worry about women," Virginia tells The Guardian. "I don't know how to tell you this, it's so embarrassing, but my biggest fear was that Madonna would snatch him up."

Grohl talks more about her experience as a rock mom in her new book, From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars, which also includes interviews with the moms of Michael Stipe, Amy Winehouse and Dr. Dre, among others. You can watch Dave interview his mom about the book during an event in Los Angeles last weekend, now on YouTube.

Both Virginia and Dave will appear on the The Late Show this Wednesday, April 26 to talk about From Cradle to Stage, which is available now.

Credit: Eliot Lee HazelRoyal Blood's new song "Lights Out," the lead single from their forthcoming sophomore album How Did We Get So Dark?, continues the band's style of heavy drums and distorted bass riffs, but the track was influenced by a group not really known for either: Daft Punk.

"We were going for a Daft Punk thing quite a lot and trying to f*** with the rock thing, I guess," frontman Mike Kerr tells NME. "What would Daft Punk do if they wrote a rock tune?"

Meanwhile, Kerr describes the album's closing track, called "Sleep," as a "Black Sabbath hip-hop tune."

Even with Daft Punk and hip-hop influences, Kerr feels How Did We Get So Dark? is still a meat-and-potatoes record that focuses on his bass and Ben Thatcher's drums.

"The songs we felt really excited about didn't involve having synths or guitars," Kerr says. "It's funny, the moment we added anything like that, our songs went from sounding huge to really not that cool and small. It made it ordinary."

"We're a pretty tight-knit team," he adds. "It's kind of like bringing your mate on a date. They're just going to kill the vibe."

How Did We Get So Dark? will be released June 16.

ABC/Phil McCartenFall Out Boy has something coming, and apparently it's called Purple.

Over the weekend the band Instragrammed a message directing people to movie theaters in Chicago for something coming from "Mania Entertainment Group."

The band then reposted a fan-made video of a trailer that apparently ran at the movie theaters.  The video opens with the Mania Entertainment Group logo over a shot of an ocean and palm trees.  We see images of what appears to be a marriage proposal on the beach, people running down a pier, storm clouds and then crashing waves that take on a purple hue.

The words "Fall Out Boy" appear, then the date  "4.28.17," but Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz took to Twitter on Saturday to correct the date, writing, "PURPLE begins..." striking through the April 28 date and replacing it with April 27.

The band also posted a GIF of a purple crashing wave.

No word yet about the nature of this mysterious project.

Fall Out Boy's last album was American Beauty/American Psycho in 2015.

Columbia RecordsCOIN's breakthrough single "Talk Too Much" is featured on the band's new album How Will You Know if You Never Try. While lead vocalist Chase Lawrence says it has "some songs that sound like 'Talk Too Much,'" he thinks the album overall is "pretty diverse."

"We pushed ourselves to write some really unique styles, really unique structures, and just use all of our influences, whether that's hip-hop or punk or new wave music," Lawrence tells ABC Radio. "We've really cultivated all of our influences and refined our tastes, and were able to make something that truly is our taste."

The diversity of How Will You Know was influenced by the three locations COIN recorded the album: Los Angeles, New York City and the band's hometown, Nashville.

"The songs in L.A. kind of sound like they were recorded in L.A. They were kind of influenced by the warm weather, they kind of sound beachier -- 'Talk Too Much' was one of those," Lawrence explains. "In New York, we recorded [the songs] in the summer, but they sound a little colder, a little glitchier, a little more technical."

As for the Nashville tracks, Lawrence produced those alongside his band mate, bassist Zachary Dyke.

"Those songs are kind of like the passion-project songs," says Lawrence. "They're definitely not supposed to be huge radio smashes, but we are maybe the most proud of those songs. They're truly unique, and they definitely differ from 'Talk Too Much.'" 

How Will You Know if You Never Try is out now.
