Quick News

The Editors front man Tom Smith has spilled some details about the band's forthcoming third record, In This Light and On This Evening. The record is heavily influenced by (one of my favorite cities) London. The British band was so taken aback by the city, that the new album centers around what the British Capitol has to offer. Smith says in a statement "I actually think it’s in every song," he said. "In the right time and place, in the right light and on the right evening, something you have seen 1,000 times before can still take your breath away." I couldn't agree more, very excited about this album when it is released in September.

In other Brit band news, The Arctic Monkeys have revealed the cover to their new album, Humbug. The record due in August was produced by Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme. Take a look at the cover below:
