The Killers are set to work on "Pile of songs next week" according to drummer Ronnie Vanucci. Vanucci was on Britain's XFM when he said "Tuesday [May 17] I think we start doing some writing again. We have piles of songs we want to show each other. We're going to get back in that room and start working." The band's last record, Day and Age was released in 2008.

In unfortunate news even after last years reunion gigs, Carl Barat has confirmed that The Libertines are done for good. Barat tells NME "We are all in very different places. Right now is not the time for The Libertines. I thought the water under the bridge was under the bridge, but maybe it's not. It's a very fucking hard thing. Every time we talk it just brings it back up."

Pink Floyd are set to do a massive reissue of their back catalogue across various formats begining in September. The legendary band are set to also release Dark Side of the Moon a six disc "Immersion" box set and a two disc "experience" set. The band's other records as well as B-sides are being prepped for the same treatment.

Grizzly Bear took to Facebook this week to say "Towards the end of this month we head to Texas and continue writing new songs and begin recording new album!" The band's critically acclaimed last record, Veketimist was released in 2008.

The Walkmen are also heading back into the studio this fall after touring, band member Hamilton Leithauser has told 24bit.

Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem gave an update about his side project, Horrible Crows via the bands website, take a look at the studio update:
Coming to you from a secret location in the Shore of New Jersey, we have begun recording for the Horrible Crowes. So far we've got the drums, percussion, and drum loops pretty well wrapped up in bow thanks to Steve Sidelnyk. Ian finished all the bass parts yesterday and today, and I've done 60% of the Piano work and about 80% of the Hammond B-3 Organs, it's been a pretty productive not-even-first-week. The piano you see pictured above was also used on a record called "Bat Out of Hell" by a guy named Meatloaf, which is one of my top twenty albums of all time. We've got amps upon amps and noises upon noises, the exciting thing for me is this is coming out better than I could have ever dreamed. Benny came down today to hang out and we had a great time listening to all the parts we've laid down so far. There's an electricity in the air, the weather's breathing warmer, and the ocean is at my fingertips again. It's good to be home, it's good to be back in the studio with Ted Hutt and Ryan Mall, and this record is going to make the old women blush and the young girls scream. Like Greg Duli says... "does he love you? cause if he doesn't I'll be here all night.
