Quick News

Very sad news, Scottish garage trio The Fratellis have split after only releasing two albums. The band's 2007 acclaimed record Costello Music and 2008's Here We Stand, brought this outfit around the world from various festivals, headlining gigs and even opening for The Police at Giants Stadium. On the band's forum this week Jon Fratelli and Barry Fratelli confirmed they are splitting up. Jon Fratelli aka Jon Lawler is currently supporting his latest band Codeine Velvet Club.

The Roots highly anticipated new album, How I Got Over, will feature a few guests that would seem all too different to be on a Roots album. Singer Joanna Newsom and Jim James of My Morning Jacket are set to appear on Philly's finest latest. How I Got Over is slated to come out sometime this summer.

The late DJ AM will have a cameo in Ironman 2. Director Jon Faverou and the producers of the film felt that AM was a great friend to the cast and crew and wanted to honor his legacy.

Death Cab For Cutie will begin work on their latest album in June. No word yet as to when the record will be released.
