Quick News

Portishead will begin working on the follow-up to their 2008's Third. Portishead member Geoff Barrow told BBC 6 radio that "I just want to bang on and get another record done." No word on when the album will be finished or released, but this comes a sigh of relief for fans as they do not have to wait another decade in between records as they did with the band's self titled release and Third.

Airborne Toxic Event are currently in LA with producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Jet) to work on the follow up to their 2008 debut. The band is hoping to have the album out in early 2011.

Bruce Springsteen is set to re-release a special anniversary edition of his epic Darkness on the Edge of Town. Guitarist Little Steven Van Zandt tells Rolling Stone that the record will include at least 10 outtakes. The re-issue should be out by Christmas.

Trent Reznor is a busy man, always has been and always will be. Aside from recording his new band How to Destroy Angel's latest, new Nine Inch Nails material, he is also scoring David Fincher's latest film The Social Network. The film is based around the minds that created Facebook. Reznor writes on
"I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on. Months later, I'm happy to tell you we're nearing the completion of this and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable."
The Social Network is out in October.
