Quick News

After they wrap up their massive 360 Tour, U2 are looking to sell the giant claw they are performing under and sell it as a permenint structure and venue for people to use. The band has three "claw" stadiums they have been using and will sell them to be erected in three parts of the world.

As we have been mentioning, British buzz band BROTHER were forced to change their name to VIVA BROTHER after a Australian Celtic band of the same name were suing the band for the rights to use it.

Pulp front man Jarvis Cocker is an amazing lyracist, no doubt about it. Just listen to any song from Pulp or his solo material and you will understand that if his lyrics were to be published they would make a great book of poetry and short stories. Alas, Faber and Faber will release Mother, Brother, Lover: Selected Lyrics - the selected works of Jarvis Cocker this October.

Mastodon are set to release their latest record, The Hunter, this fall. It will be the follow up to 2009's brilliant Crack the Skye, a record in which we pinged as the "League of Their Own" album of that year.

The Drums have been hinting they will have a new release out soon. They posted a cryptic video of them in the studio with the word "Portamento" appearing multiple times in the video. We looked up the word, it is a noun that means carrying or carriage. Who knows, it could be the title of the record. Take a look at the video HERE.

The Rapture are set to release their latest record in what seems like forever. The band's latest, In the Grace of Your Love will be out in September. Take a look at the cover below:
