Quick News

Taking to social media outlets on Thursday, The Heartbreaks confirmed they are already working on the follow-up to this year's brilliant, Funtimes.

Primal Scream have announced they will release a "sophisticated" new album next year. Speaking to Q magazine, front man Bobby Gillespie said, "It's a rock'n'roll record, but modern rock'n'roll. Pretty psychedelic rock, it's kind of guitar-driven but we use guitars in an orchestral way, not in the normal way people make rock records. I think we do it in a more interesting way. We weave the guitars in with electronics and other acoustic instruments to make the core sound."

Aside from releasing the documentary Crossfire Hurricane later this year, The Rolling Stones will release the rare documentary Charlie is my Darling officially for the first time after 40 years of it being finished. The 50-minute film was made in September 1965 and is to be the earliest known visual recording of the rock and roll legends.
