Quick News

The Klaxons have told NME magazine that after their label scrapped their original second record, they thought they would never record again. Singer James Righton told NME "For a while we were nowhere near the headspace to make a record. The more we discussed what we wanted to become, the more tangled we got. It felt so forced. The opposite of what we were about. If I'm honest there was a brief point where I thought, 'Was it all just a moment in time that we can't recreate? Will we ever be able to do it again?'" Klaxon's latest, Surfing the Void is out in August only in the UK and Europe, no word on a US release date, though the band will be here for a small fall tour.

Lady Gaga tells Rolling Stone that she is finishing her new album from her tour bus. The singer says it will be out in 2011 and will announce its release on New Year's Eve.

Metallica's Lars Ulrich spoke to Australia's Herald Sun recently and says that the band's brilliant 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster, was a "mistake."Ulrich says "Every time I see Noel Gallagher he quotes lines from that movie back to me. That thing has taken on a life of its own. I had to live that shit for three fucking years! The whole thing was a mindfuck. I am aware a lot of other musicians seem to have lived a lot of those moments. They weren't necessarily stupid enough to film them like we were and share them with the rest of the world." Metallica is currently on the road finishing up support for 2008's Death Magnetic.
