Daryl Hall and John Oates recently shared the trailer for their new documentary Daryl Hall & John Oates: From Philly to Chile, now streaming on Paramount+.

The documentary follows the duo’s live in 2019 when they performed in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; and Sao Paolo, Brazil for the first time.

“It was a blast playing for all the amazing fans in South America who have been waiting so long for us to finally get there,” Oates told Consequence, adding that he can’t even describe “how much I appreciate their energy.” Hall chimes in by saying their trip to the region was “fascinating in every way.”

There’s a new emo supergroup in town! My Chemical Romance‘s Frank Iero, Coheed and Cambria‘s Travis Stever, Circa Survive’s Anthony Green, and Thursday’s Tim Payne and Tucker Rule have teamed up to form L.S. Dunes. The band will release its debut album Past Lives on November 11th via Fantasy Records.

To preview the album, the band have shared new single “Permanent Rebellion.” Talking about the track, Iero said “We never knew if we would ever get to play these songs together, in fact none of us lifelong musicians really knew if we’d ever be able to play music for a live audience ever again. ‘Permanent Rebellion’ is about taking back what is rightfully yours.”

Listen to the song below.

L.S. Dunes also announced a short run of North American tour dates starting September 16th at Chicago’s Riot Fest and wrapping up in Baltimore on November 30th. See the full itinerary and tickets here.
