Quick News

Sad news to start off with, Glasvegas drummer Caroline McKay has left the band while recording in LA. Singer James Allen told NME that "We are really sad that Caroline has decided to leave as she is one of the coolest drummers around, but we respect her decision and say goodbye with all our love and luck". I met Caroline this past summer at Lollapalooza and she was an intricate part to the band's style and sound, beck of luck Caroline!

Contrary to previous reports, Arctic Monkeys will begin working on the follow up to last year's Humbug as soon as they get off the road in the next few months. The band has expressed they would like to work with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures) again who produced Humbug.

Back with more of those block rockin' beats, The Chemical Brothers are set to release their seventh album, Further. The disc is slated for June 7 in UK / Europe and the following day in the US.

In between touring with Lady Gaga, headline a tour of their own, New York City's Semi-Precious Weapons will release their first full length LP. The album, You Love You, will be released in June.

After months of speculation, The Libertines are set to reunite in 2010! It is official this time, the band is slated to play this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals in UK along side Guns N Roses, Arcade Fire, Phoenix, Blink 182 and many others.
