Quick News

Sting will release his new album, The Last Ship in September. It is the iconic singer / bassists first album of brand new solo material in a decade.

Sad news to report, legendary Hoboken, New Jersey venue Maxwell's will be closing its doors at the end of the July. The venue which has played host to many bands including Yo La Tengo, Nirvana, Oasis, The Verve, Titus Andronicus, Screaming Females, Guided By Voices, The Meat Puppets and was the setting to Bruce Springsteen's classic "Glory Days" video will be no longer. The owners said in a statement,"The culture in Hoboken is driven by TV now. A lot of the bars downtown are fighting with each other for who has the most giant TVs. That's what Hoboken nightlife has become."

Beck is going to have a busy year, the singer is reportedly working on two new albums. First is the all acoustic album he has announced earlier this year and the second is a much more proper follow-up to 2005's fuzzy garage rock album, Modern Guilt.

UK cold wave band White Lies have announced details of their third record. The album, Big TV, will arrive on August 12. Take a look at the tracklisting below:
