After speaking with us last week, Living Things front woman Stephonik Youth was involved in a bicycle accident in Brooklyn which forced the band to cancel a few gigs. Luckily Youth is fine and the band is already back on the road.

After much rumors of a breakup, The Swell Season are going on hiatus. Glen Hansard addressed fans via Twitter and said the band is not breaking up just taking a break. Hansard will rejoin his first band, The Frames this fall for a world tour.

Next month John Lennon would have turned 70. To help mark the milestone in the Beatles' life and age, his widow Yoko Ono will release his entire back catalogue for reissue with special B-sides, rarities and demo's stemming from every album and recording session.

Now this is capitalization and not punk rock, The Sex Pistols are set to release their own perfume. Yes, perfume. Because you know, smelling like a guy named Johnny Rotten will certainly get you laid.
