Jeremy Renner might actually be some kind of superhero. On January 1 of this year, he was involved in an incident where his 14,000-plus pound Sno-Cat accidentally ran over him. Renner was attempting to help his nephew out of the snow when the accident happened. Jeremy Renner broke a multitude of bones, including eight ribs, both legs and his right shoulder. Still, Renner survived.

To help deal with the process of his recovery, Renner has been writing some new music. If you didn't know, Renner has produced music before. In 2020, he put out an EP called The Medicine. His music tends to be more straight rock, and he sings fairly well, too.

Per an Instagram post, Renner's new album will be titled Love and Titanium which is an homage to the many surgeries he has had to get his health back while also having the support of family and friends. In the post, Renner writes, "'Love and Titanium’ has been painful, deeply healing, and ultimately cathartic for me to create. I hope I get the courage to share with you all."

Jeremy Renner has new music

Renner was able to walk with a cane this past spring. It is unclear if he can get back to the kind of shape he was in during the making of the Marvel films where he played Hawkeye. But there is no reason to doubt Jeremy Renner after all he has been able to do so far.

Tenacious D announces the supporting acts for Europe tour

Tenacious D is calling the UK and Europe tour "Tenacious D and the Spicy Meatball Tour." Funny. But while Jack Black and Kyle Gass definitely bring some funniness to their songs, underrating them as musicians and performers would be a mistake. They are excellent in concert.

The tour runs from April 29 (hello, Stockholm!) until May 15 (hello, Paris!), 2024. In between, Tenacious D plays most of their dates in the UK but will visit Norway, Denmark, Luxembourg, and Ireland as well. The band announced that the supporting act for the European dates with be progressive metal band Crusade, while the UK dates will have comedian and musician Dave Hill open the shows.
