Quick News

Radiohead are currently working on new material! This is always a monumental moment because one never has any idea what new sound or idea the band will come up with next. Guitarist Ed O'Brien told BBC that “We are working on new material. We’ll be doing some more recording. It’s business as usual." The band is embarking to South America and are currently plotting a small tour for the summer to wrap up the In Rainbows tour.

The Klaxons are being forced to re enter the studio to rework and remake their latest record. The highly anticipated follow up to 2007's Myths of the Near Future, was slated for a summer release this year, yet the label felt it was too dense and psychedelic to put out. Singer Jamie Reynolds told NME that "We made a really heavy record and it isn't the right thing for us, I understand that." No word on when the new record will be available.

Jack White can add another band to his resume. The White Stripes and Raconteurs front man has started a new band called The Dead Weather with Kills singer Alison Mosshart, Raconteurs guitarist Jack Lawrence and Queens of the Stone Age bassist Dean Fertita. This time around, it White is stepping aside and letting Mosshart sing, while Jack plays drums and does backing vocals. The band had their first gig in Nashville last night and here are some demo's of The Dead Weather below:
