Quick News

Depeche Mode Front man Dave Gahan has confirmed he will be releasing his sophomore solo disc, a follow-up to 2003's Paper Monsters. The album is expected to be in stores by the fall.

After collaborating with Jay-Z, on the only track really worth listening from HOV's last record, Coldplay's Chris Martin will be jammin with Kanye West on West's upcoming Graduation disc. Martin has co-written and will sing on two songs, including the title track. Cant wait to hear this experiment.

The Smashing Pumpkins, well just 1/2 of the Pumpkins with two new players filling in for James Iha and D'Arcy, will be hitting the road this summer. After a bad week of gear being stolen, and forcing to push the release date of their latest disc, Billy Corgan and Co. will hit the road for festivals as well as week long theater dates across the U.S. The lead off single, "Tarantula," from the new record Zeitgeist will be hitting radio airwaves next week, while the album comes to stores July 10.
