Quick News

U2 are dropping hints that they will headline next years Glastonbury festival in the UK. With hints at saying to "watch this space." The band was due to headline this past summer but had to pull out due to Bono's emergency back surgery and recovery, they were replaced by Gorillaz.

The Who are going to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their Live at Leeds record with a super deluxe anniversary edition that features the whole concert on CD and vinyl, DVD, poster, book and more. It shall arrive around Christmas.

In an ultra exclusive interview with NME, Mumford and Son's say they will "start again" for the recording to their massive global smash, Sigh No More. Keyboardist Ben Lovett told the magazine "There are things in our lives that carry more weight and substance than simply saying, 'Things are going really well, let's write some songs about that.' There's more to life than the success of this band." Singer Marcus Mumford also declared that the band could face backlash with their new found international attention, "We've had a very long honeymoon period," he explained. "I'm sure that people will start disliking us more publicly, because our music is becoming more public and not everyone is going to like it." The band will start work on the new record next year.

Also speaking to NME was one of the band's we told you to keep an eye out on earlier this year, Chapel Club. The band are working on their debut with Bloc Party producer Paul Epworth in England and are gushing about their experiance with him. Singer Lewis Bowman said
"He's an utterly lovely guy, he's one of the most talented people I've ever met, "he can play anything, he gets everything and he's so articulate about the music he loves, which is the thing that struck me the most. He can talk about a song, what he sees and hears in it, and he expresses that to you in such a concise way that it's easy to understand and that makes it easy to record because you can all get behind an idea… he's like a captain in World War One, you would go over the top of the trenches with him."Chapel Club's debut arrives in March.
