Quick News

I am not sure what to make of this, but all I can say is SAY IT AIN'T SO!!! Bloc Party may never record another record again!?! As I said, not sure what to make of it, front man Kele Okereke told Triple J backstage at Australia's Splendor in the Grass 2009 that "We don't know what the future holds," he said. "It's weird, we're out of contract now so... we might take a year off, we might take three years off.... we might never make a record again or we might head straight back in and do a record. We'll see how we feel come the end of this touring cycle." Maybe (wishful thinking) it means they wont make another record but still record music considering the band's latest single "One More Chance" is out next month and is a one off track not featured on any Bloc Party album.

Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme has told GQ why he chose to produce Arctic Monkey's latest disc Humbug. Homme says "I was sucked in at first by the lyrics. Alex sounded like a rare poet playing music – he has a special gift for the gab." Homme then went on to say that this record may alienate some Monkey's fans because "This is the record where they get weird, grow up and trip out." Humbug is out at the end of next month.

The first band signed to Kings of Leon new label imprint, The Feature's have released their record Some Kind of Salvation in the US. In other Kings of Leon news, the band's latest effort Only by the Night has officially gone platinum in their own country, this is the first record of the Kings that has done that in the US.
