Festival season has become a huge thing in Britain, with more and more boutique festivals springing up every year to compete with the more established festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival and V Festival. While watching your favourite bands and partying for three days straight is obviously a lot of fun, the one thing that puts a dampener on some people's festival fun is sleeping in a tent.
First, you endure the struggle of putting up the tent, with all those pesky pegs and poles. Then, as British summers are notoriously wet and muddy, there is the problem of getting everything inside the tent wet and dirty. […] Read more »
A follow-up to 2008’s All Hope Is Gone has been rumored since 2008, with multiple delays and band members taking their time since bassist Paul Gray’s death. However, according to an interview frontman Corey Taylor gave in Kerrang recently, Slipknot is on the path to recording a new album this time – and they’re expected to start just next month.
Taylor told the magazine that Slipknot has 17 demos prepared to record. The sound, he further went onto describe, should be like their strongest two releases, Iowa and Volume 3.
Going onto speak about the lyrics, he said: "I've written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it's feeling pretty good. […] Read more »
While The Roots have been making music since the 1990s, they’re prominent in the present as Jimmy Fallon’s band, first for Late Night and now for The Tonight Show. Although the group is said to be making their transition, their biggest project right now is a new album called …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.
Member Black Thought spoke with XXL about this project in a recent interview, explaining how the release is a concept album and that the group is nearly done. However, unlike Undun: “it’s not just about just one kind of character, we create quite a few different characters in this record. It’s satire, but in that satire it’s an analysis of some of the stereotypes perpetuated in not only the hip-hop community, but in the community. […] Read more »
Beyonce and Coldplay already did it, and now rapper Kid Cudi joins the pack of releases put out without an official date.
His fourth solo album, titled Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, surfaced on iTunes this past Monday. According to the rapper, the concept is about someone who "will come and save the universe from the forces of evil."
Nevertheless, unlike Beyonce and Coldplay, Cudi hinted at the release in past interviews, putting fans in suspense that the album would drop but that he wouldn’t announce the release date.
Satellite follows Indicud, which came out in April 2013. That release was the first outside of his Man in the Moon series and managed to do fairly well on the charts, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard 200. […] Read more »
A new solo album from Noel Gallagher has been in talks since the summer. This month, now, producer Mark Coyle went to the press to explain that not only is there material, but the songs sound like they’re from Oasis’ debut album.
In speaking with NME, Coyle, who produced their debut, described the sessions he has been doing with Gallagher. He said: "It reminds me in some respects of the spirit of 'Definitely Maybe', because it’s so obviously exciting. That boy is from a different planet, and even the fans won't believe how utterly amazing it is."
In the fall, Gallagher spoke about having new songs left over from his last solo record, and there’s a chance these tracks could end up on his next release. […] Read more »
Not much is known about Coldplay’s next album, a follow-up to Mylo Xyloto. Rumors have circulated, but the band hasn’t confirmed anything. But instead, Coldplay appeared to take a page from Beyonce’s successful album strategy, and on Tuesday, they put out a new single without any press or announcement.
The track, titled “Midnight,” starkly departs from Mylo Xyloto. Fans who didn’t go for the thicker textured, electronic-influenced songs that leaned more in a commercial direction might appreciate the minimalist approach on “Midnight.” While still electronic, the song has an overall airy, stripped-down feel, with Martin’s vocals sounding restrained and light.[…] Read more »
