Quick News

The Gaslight Anthem have announced the title of their forthcoming record, the album shall be called Handwritten. No release date has been set.

James Blake has given details on his new LP. The dubstep hero and our pick for 2011's Best New Artist has told Spinner, "I think it's going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way. I don't feel more aggressive, it's just been… it's just how I feel. In terms of writing more club tracks, writing more electronically influenced – I feel like it was all electronically influenced, but now that influence has come to me in a different way." No word as to when Blake will release album number two, we are hoping it will be out at some point this year.

Original Oasis drummer, Tony McCarroll, who left the band in 1995 after a dispute with Noel Gallagher is looking to auction off his drum kit that he used to record, Definitely Maybe. He told UK's The Sun, "“I’ve never taken advantage of the Oasis connections over the years. There have been a lot of offers and opportunities but I just never felt the need to. I’ve been living a really normal life, nothing much has been going on.” It has been rumored that Manchester United superstar Wayne Rooney is interested in buying the kit. In 2011 we interviewed McCarroll about his book, Oasis: The Truth, take a look at that interview HERE.
