Quick News

The Gaslight Anthem have given details about their third record. The Jersey punks latest, American Slang will arrive in June, singer Brian Fallon told “For the last record we looked really into it and we asked ‘What are our influences and how do we jam them in?’ And on this one, we’re writing songs that we feel are relevant to us.” American Slang is the follow up to the band's breakthrough 2008 release The '59 Sound.

The Strokes are aiming for a September release on their fourth record, the follow up to 2006's First Impression of Earth. Drummer Fab Moretti told BBC "we're just running around like kids in a candy shop." The band has been recording in New York City with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Shins, U2).

Kaiser Chiefs had to get really bored in ordered to get inspired. Interesting take on creating art, but who am I to judge. After a few months off the road, energetic front man Ricky Wilson told BBC "Then I got really bored, then mind-numbingly bored and that's when you start thinking about the fact you want to get up and do something again." He then went on to say "I haven't felt this creative since we first started." The band's last record, Off with Their Heads was released in 2008, no word on when the band's latest will be released.
