Sloan has a new album on the way, and the east-coast band is trying something new.
“Commonwealth”, out Sept 9th, will technically be a double album, but is actually split into 4 parts, with each “side” written by a different band member!
The lead single, “Keep Swinging (Downtown)”, comes from Patrick Pentland’s portion of the record. Check it out, then learn more about the album, HERE
Guess what showed up in the Inbox today (besides a bunch of e-mails about how we can ‘enhance’ certain body parts)? A brand new song from Our Lady Peace!!
The Canadian band, which just celebrated 20 years together, is in the midst of work on their 9th album – the first single is called “Won’t Turn Back”
Truth: This is not what I expected to hear when I hit ‘play’ on the latest single from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Frontman Alex Ebert told Rolling Stone of “Life Is Hard”:
I started writing something on the piano when I was taking a break from mixing the album, and then I remembered this poem that I had found in my files. Scrawled above the poem it said “to John and Heath,” and I was referring to John Lennon and Heath Ledger. Heath was going to put out our first album and we became close, we had all of these plans, and then he died. We had talked the day before he died. I don’t know when I had written the poem but it had been a few years earlier. It must’ve been right after I had talked to this psychic, who told me that a man named Heath said that John says hello. So I was like “John who?” And then I thought maybe it was John Lennon
This has been a VERY good week for Rural Alberta Advantage fans! Not only did the band announce a show in Edmonton (October 20th at Starlite Room with July Talk), they also released a new song, AND details of their next album!
RAA will release Mended with Gold on September 30, and you can check out the first single, “Terrified” below.
FINALLY, the song you’ve been waiting a DECADE for – from The Physical World (out September 9th), check out Death From Above 1979′s “Trainwreck 1979″
Last week, The Gaslight Anthem surprised us with “Rollin and Tumblin”, a new tune from their upcoming album “Get Hurt” with some serious teeth. That track got everyone wondering if the New Jersey band was heading in a heavier direction with record #5 – but the newly released, ultra balled-y (and Springsteen-y) title track suggests that ‘Get Hurt’ will showcase the Gaslight Anthem that you already know and love. Check it out below.
“Get Hurt” hits stores on August 19th
Whether you love her or love to hate her, open your ears and your mind and give this new tune from Courtney Love a listen.
“You Know My Name” is loud, angry, and in your face – all of the things that make Courtney…well, COURTNEY, and music critics are eating it up!
The song will be included as part of a double-A-side single, paired with a track called “Wedding Day”, out May 4th
With only 2 weeks to go until Young the Giant releases their new album Mind Over Matter, the band is giving you another taste of what you can expect from their sophomore release.
Check out the newly released title track below, then treat yourself to tickets to see them live when SONiC presents Young the Giant at Winspear Centre on March 31st.
Surprise! It’s another new EP from Pixies (although, I suppose it’s not all that surprising when you consider that the EP they put out in September was called EP1 – if they numbered it, there was bound to be more on the way!)
The creatively titled EP2 is available exclusively on the band’s website. Check out a video for the new track “Blue Eyed Hexe” (which has a SERIOUS AC/DC vibe, amiright?) below
