Quick News

Slick English indie band, The Heartbreaks have confirmed they will release a new album in early 2014.

London quintet Chapel Club are calling in quits. Taking to Facebook, the band announced they are parting ways. They said, "As of last week's show in London, Chapel Club is no more. We don't like to think of it as splitting up, because we all still get along very well and the word 'split' implies a kind of collapse or implosion, something ugly and destructive and inevitable. That's not how it feels to us. It's more like we're setting CC aside as having outlived its usefulness. Despite all the amazing fans around the world and all the fun we've had over the last four years (for whom and for which we will always be deeply grateful), Chapel Club as a creative entity has collected a lot of baggage. And lugging that around just started to seem unnecessary. Maybe you'll meet us again in other guises; we obviously don't intend to stop making music (or other things). Who knows. The main thing is you helped us to learn a lot and to make some pretty great memories in the process. And maybe a few good songs. Thank you for the opportunity, and see you around."

Legendary New York City venue, Roseland will unfortunately close it's doors in April. Billboard reported the news this past weekend. The venue, which opened at the turn of last century has played a key role in the city's live musical legacy. It has also been the home to some of our favorite gigs like Bjork in 2012, New Order in 2012, Radiohead in 2011, Atoms For Peace in 2010, Them Crooked Vultures in 2009, Bloc Party in 2008, and so many more.

Courtney Love will be releasing her autobiography, My Story, in December.

FINALLY! The long await Stone Roses documentary, Made of Stone, directed by Shane Meadows will arrive on DVD in the US in December.
